Angharad var Elwyn, Human Sorceress
right-aligned image


Appearance and Character

Angharad appears as a petite and pretty young woman. She has a cute face, and while she is in no way tomboyish, her appeal is more that of adorableness than opulent feminine beauty. Her exterior is tidy and elegant without being intimidating or stern. She generally wears her hair pinned up and dresses not without finesse and a certain playfulness, preferring breeches over skirts and dresses, and not shying away from colours that would rarely be seen in her homeland. Her free and lively body language fits the picture. A beautiful and elegant amulet, a disc of nacre framed in gold, seems always present around her neck, regardless of the presence or absence of other articles of clothing.

One might not think her a foreigner by the looks of her, but there is no denying of it once she opens her mouth to speak. While she is fluent in the common tongue, she has a noticeable Nilfgaardian accent. Her voice has a slight raspy quality that gives it a sort of crotchety tone.

She has a sprightly nature, pert, and sometimes petulant, but overall with a gift for being loveable. She is approachable and has little prejudice in terms of social class as long as people behave with some decency, making her something of a favourite among the servants of the house. At times she appears oblivious, even naive, but the next moment, she astonishes people when it is as if she had plucked a thought from someone's mind and were uttering it before they had time to put it into words.

In her personal affairs, she is surprisingly orderly - her rooms are not kept in the inspired chaos of a genius, but are tidy and, at first glance, not even identifiable as a sorceress', at least going by what you might imagine and expect. The servants are quite convinced that she's hiding something interesting somewhere, but they would be, wouldn't they?

Angharad is not mean-spirited or cruel, but she is no saint. You might say what she displays is simply the healthy and natural egocentrism of an attractive, and relatively speaking powerful, young woman. Curiously, a reasonably observant person will soon notice that sex is a touchy topic with her, and any sort of lewdness or allusion in her presence will quickly sour the mood.

Life Path

It is probably safe to say that Angharad is relatively young - for a sorceress, that is - though hardly quite as young as she looks. She makes no secret of the fact that she is from Lower Alba in Nilfgaard and graduated from Gweison Haul, but you do not know when. The stories she occasionally tells do not paint much of a coherent picture of her life, except perhaps that she did not spend most of it in Nilfgaard proper - it appears you would have to pry to learn more.

”Four Arms” Tymek Cralgard – Personal Witcher to the Segert Family
left-aligned image


Apperance: A lot of people would say that if you’ve seen one Witcher, you’ve seen them all – yellow eyes, scars and most importantly, two swords strapped to their back. The latter is what makes Tymek stand out from the rest of his bretheren – while a pair of yellow eyes indeed peer out at his surrounds from under a messy mop of black hair, and an otherwise passably-attractive face is marred by a deep fleshy scar across this nose, this Witcher does not carry two swords. Rather, he carries four – one steel and one silver longswords across his back as well as two daggers hanging from his belt – though this seems to only be when he is out on duties for the Segert family, either as a Witcher or as an escort for the children or another member who may require his services. When out on his own business, either at the estate or in town, Tymek defaults to the more traditional two swords.

His choice in clothing, despite having serving at a noble’s pleasure for near-on two decades now, is still rooted in his previous life as a travelling monster-slayer and while they are a great deal cleaner now than they previously were, the Witcher is still often found wearing a rough white cotton shirt under a reinforced brown leather jacket, battered and with numerous poorly-made repairs done over years. A Witcher medallion, that of the Viper school, hangs over the jacket, and its silver chain also holds a plain golden band upon it as well.

Lifepath: Tymek has been with the Segert’s longer than some of their children have been alive. Stories surrounding how the Witcher ended up in the employ of its patriarch vary wildly, though the common thread seems to involve the Witcher saving either the noble himself, his wife, his mistress or one of several of the children while out on an unrelated contract. Since that time, Tymek has been a recurring feature at the Segert estate and outside of it, sometimes standing in the main hall when the Lord is receiving guests, but more often shadowing behind members of the family when they’re outside the walls of the estate. All most people can say is that the old adage of “You don’t need a hero, you need a professional” relating to Witchers applies to Tymek himself – he’s quiet, respectful, and fulfills his role as is expected.

Those who know the Witcher slightly better, such as the other workers or servants at the estate describe him as a quiet man who keeps mostly to himself, though he’s not unfriendly – in fact, he’s usually quite happy to join in on a game of Gwent, dice poker or even just an evening of drinking (though he has been banned from drinking contests for obvious reasons) and is usually good for an amusing story from his hunting days, or a drily-humorous remark. Those who have asked him about his past usually hear a fairly straightforward story of an orphaned boy who was taken in by a Witcher from the Viper school named Kacper and after completing his training, he spent his life travelling the Path, hunting monsters where they needed hunting, occasionally taking an odd job here and there where there were no monsters to slay, and spending the occasional winter at the Keep with his Witcher brothers. All-in-all, not all that exciting for a mutant monster slayer…

Marsilia of VerdenMarsilia of Verden
Human Doctor

Appearance and Character

There was a time that Masilia was considered desirable. Perhaps she still would be if it weren't for the hardness in her eyes, the disheveled state of her hair and clothes, and the blood that often clung to them. Her face, while young, bore the expression of someone seasoned by trials far beyond their years and scars appear along her body in numbers far more frequently than one would expect in someone who can barely wield a dagger.

For the rare few who are able to push beyond the stark warning that her appearances render, they find a gentle, though firm hand to help tend to their needs. She is truthful, almost to a fault, a subconscious rebellion against the lies and deceptions that her family harbored and those hurt by them. In fact, rebellious is probably the most accurate way to describe her. She rails against those trying to control her, the expectations that life has imparted on her, and even her own instincts at times. Where a streak of compassion drives her to help those who are less fortunate and persecuted by others, so too does she push back against the instinct, silently chastising herself for being so weak. In the times that she softens and opens up to someone, it is like a brief glimpse into another life, one that could have been had things been different. However, generally she'll keep people at arm's length - or further - even so far as to retreating from public and business for days at a time.

A nomad, whether by heart or circumstance, she never stays in one place long, often leaving in the middle of the night leaving nothing behind but hushed rumors of a monster who terrorized her.

Life Path

The first few years of Masilia's life were as pleasant as could be expected for the youngest daughter of a northern family. She was sheltered from her parents' work within one the cities most notorious criminal organization, even though her older siblings had been brought in at an early age. That was, until her younger sister was born when Masilia had just finished her first decade of life. The arrival was one of joy and hardship, pressing the family to its financial and emotional limits. Masilia became rebellious, seeking out the attention she'd lost to her younger sister by leaving for days at a time without word to spend time with a budding bard, Savaric, who'd become a friend to her.

It wasn't much later that her parents found an answer to their problems. In one fell swoop, they eliminated a mouth to feed and found a reliable supply of Fisstech, elevating their standing within the organization in the process. Masilia was given over to be raised by a mage - which was to say she was left alone to fend for herself the vast majority of the time while her guardian was away. Sifting through the mage's archives, she found an interest in alchemy and medicine. She dove headlong into her studies, memorizing anatomy and experimenting with different formulas, never quite finding what she was looking for. Word spread of her talents, and when they mage was away, she was sought out to offer services to the wounded or intoxicated. Word soon got back to her family, who exploited her guilt and feelings, involving her in gang activities, often involving bringing members back from the edge of death or finding ways to make poisons more difficult to detect.

Through her time with the mage, she remained friends with Savaric, who was pretty much the only one that seemed capable of tolerating her moods for any length of time - until he couldn't. After an event that she won't speak of, he turned on her, vowing for revenge - a sentiment that her eldest sister echoes.

She told herself she was moving on, but if anyone close enough had witnessed it, they'd have known it for what it was.

Fleeing.

The Wandering Bard
right-aligned image
sagasketchbook on DeviantArt

Name: Jannic of Cintra
Race: Human
Class: Bard

Personality: All in all, Jannic is a friendly person.

He is outgoing, expressive, enjoys laughing and generally finds the best in any situation. Being a bard, Jannic isn't afraid of people - or attention - and in fact has started to relish it; he quite enjoys when someone recognizes him, though admittedly such instances are few and far between. Probably unexpected is that Jannic is an intellectual, whom has a deep need to seek out knowledge. He often asks questions, reads books, and generally delves into a range of subjects and topics, in that pursuit of information and learning.

Jannic is someone who aims to be polite, charming and well-mannered. He treats others with respect, even non-humans, and tries to avoid judging anyone before he knows some about them. And while Jannic might not own much, he isn't beyond helping others in need, even going so far as to share some of his coin or protection, if required. That isn't to say Jannic is a bleeding heart, no, but he still cares about people to some degree.

Yet, for all his kindness and friendliness, Jannic can also be pragmatic, and sees others as tools to be used for his own ends. And while he won't necessarily be malicious about how he does that (he is friendly, after all), it can still be considered quite selfish if not outright egocentric - mixed with a small dash of narcissism...

But really, is anyone surprised?

He is a performer, after all.

Description: Jannic is a young man, average in height and weight, who has a lean physique and lightly tanned skin. His hair is black and long, usually braided or tied back in some complicated fashion. His eyes are bright blue and expressive. He has handsome features, by typical opinion, with angled features - common to nobles, one might note. He also carries himself with confidence, usually has a large smile on his face, and isn't afraid to be flamboyant and exaggerated with his mannerisms.

His attire is very simple, in comparison. The clothes are well-worn, repaired in places, and look like something any commonfolk would wear. He has a green shirt, blue pants, comfortable walking boots, as well as a dark vest and a blue cloak over his shoulders. He wears simple rings on some fingers, and several necklaces, as well as oddly bright bandanas wrapped around his hands and forearms; though these seem more a fashion choice, than covering any injury sustained... to each their own?

Finally, Jannic's prized possession is his lute. Made of cherry wood, it has a deep red color, which has been inlaid with golden carving, and boasts no less than five strings. It is clearly cared for, while also having a strap that allows Jannic to shoulder the instrument at a moments notice.

Backstory: Jannic of Cintra is a wandering bard. For a number of years, the young man has walked the long roads of the continent, passing through village after city after village, plying his trade for coin. His is a lonely existence, really, filled with brief meetings and acquaintances, but never really befriending anyone. In that time Jannic has made a small reputation, nothing overly fancy, but enough to be recognized by a following of fans that know of him, every so often. However, that reputation is a double-edged sword; it's nice to be noticed, but it also brings attention from some Jannic doesn't want to have on his tail...

But that's putting the wagon before the horse.

Back to the beginning, first:

Originally, Jannic was born into a noble family of Cintra. While not of import, when it came to the royals who ruled, Jannic grew up surrounded by the aristocracy. It was a fine upbringing, really, living in a noble manor and being the fourth son of a Lord and Lady, Humphrey and Lillian, respectively. Jannic's siblings treated him well enough, he was loved, and he enjoyed a fortunate living. Education, instrumentation, poetry, legal discourse and other subjects were taught to Jannic. He did well, he was intelligent, and took to study. Yet, there remained a need for the young boy - something deep inside - that demanded he not feel comfortable in one place for long.

Jannic had wanderlust.

When a young boy, around the age of 10, Jannic's family visited a holy church. They attended the service along with other nobles, and Jannic was fortunate to have a face-to-face with the holyman. After the exchange, the boy was given a small holy symbol - for luck - and was blessed, then sent on his way, as the other service goers conversed with the elderly holyman in turn.

Jannic was witness to the Nilfgaardian attacks on Cintra. It was what caused his family to evacuate their manor, as the nobles relocated to a smaller homestead in the north. This only served to reinforce the boy's want to travel and see the world. It wasn't long after that Jannic heard word that Cintra - the royalty and army - had been devastated and brought to ruin. The family lost everything that they hadn't taken with them, including their rightful lands and ownership of animals and belongings.

It was a rough time for the family, forced to seek out common work and means to survive. Both Lord Humphrey and Lady Lillian didn't take well to the adjustment, neither did the other children, save Jannic. He seemed resilient and curious in change enough to make-do, and before long the youngest son was living his new life happily enough. In those few years, before he left home, Jannic began to play dice. He was decent enough, it was his way of getting crowns for the family, who were now living on hard times. Unfortunately, a run of bad luck resulted in the young man incurring a large debt... which, in turn, caused Jannic's sudden departure.

Now, away from the men he owed money to, Jannic took his few belongings - including his prized lute, from his days in Cintra - and began to walk the dusty and long roads of the continent. He made his way from town to town, playing for coin, and found a new love for life on the open road...
