Seeing as Imperius doesn't really interact much, and hasn't in the past, with any of the other PC's, other than Gerard collecting the taxes every month, I don't really have much to add to this thread.

Sorry

Mary Crow-Harkon: If Mary starts off as overly talkative she is likely to push Good into lying constantly which would no doubt irritate her to no end. If she took her time and asked questions slowly over a longer period he could grow more used to her so that he needn't lie all the time. She is unlikely to figure out that the goblin is almost as much as of avid reader as she is.

Linath'ak'uech: Much like Mary if Linath came on strong with Good he would begin to lye to the drow. As he tends to be more easy going and encouraging i could almost see it becoming something of a game between the two which one could think up the more ludicrous lie. If He took offense I'm sure that it would mean bad thing as all his lies would be very easy for the spymaster to fact check.

Liera: Good would most likely be confused by Liera to no end. She would be friendly and would also be the one most likely to come into contact with the goblin so i feel that he would foce himself to get used to her faster than others. He would need servants more than most with his messy lifestyle and focus on work. Her inclination toward the more sensual acts would most likely be lost on him unless she dropped almost all subtly.

Gerard Reinhardt: Initially Good would be unsure of how to handle this human but when he found out his job was to hand out the money needed to construct his various Firearms and plans he would take to the human right away filling his ears with his ideas. Everything from Ogres and Giants wielding massive firearms to whole armies wielding the deadly weapons to blast through the thickest of plate armors. All plans likely accompanied by crude drawings of said plan.

Pluck Flowers: Good would be familiar with Plucks tribe and likely with his former status as a plugger for his clan, or at least what it would mean. Because of his nature he is more likely to take the other goblins lead when it comes to how to act meaning when Pluck is around Good would be more likely to follow the laws and less likely to steal.(though he would probably steal once pluck left to deal with the stress of it all)

Ba'al Ove: Good would be very wary of Ba'al keeping his Faithful worship of Gork as secret as possible. Worshiping only when he was sure that no other could see him. Good tends to keep his distance from the human lest he suspect the secret heresy. Coincidentally, The day he met Ba'al for the first time was the day that he was banned from the kitchen for trying to take the cutlery to refill an armory emptied by negligence.

Marrostiltzen Zauber: Good would want to be friends with Marro, as he would see it wise to be friends with the keeper of all that knowledge. However the gnome would be standoffish with the goblin and that would sadden him to no end. He would take solace in that the knowledge is still available just not its keeper.

Ueda Daishi: Good would not know what to make of this odd slave who seems to revel in taking orders from his master. With both of their tendency towards actions not words as well as lack of relaxation. They could easily become friends if they were inclined. He would fear the warriors prowess if he ever found out about it, and if he ever got on his bad side would likely use traps or explosives rather than face him head on.

Imperius Aballon: Will update when we get more infoW.I.P.

Ok, here it is!

I've decided that Imperius' opinions are his own, but I will describe his demeanour when he interacts with specific PCs.

This is a WIP


Linath'ak'uech: Has met him on the rare occasions that Imperius has travelled to Castle Dalfon. Has had no real interaction with him other than formal introductions.

Liera: Has never met her.

Good With Hands: Has never met him.

Gerard: Gerard has been a constant visitor to Castle Morrow on a monthly basis for over 4 years now, and every visit is to collect taxes. Imperius’ demeanour around Gerard is that of indifference, bordering on annoyance. After all, who likes the tax collector?

Pluck Flowers: Has never met him.

Marro: Has met him on the rare occasions that Imperius has travelled to Castle Dalfon. Has had no real interaction with him other than formal introductions.

Gothog: Has never met him, but everyone knows of the bodyguard of Mary Crow.

Ba'al Ove: He has only been with House Harkon and Imperius has not visited in that time.

Others: WIP

Im pretty sure Imperious would have met Good at least once seeing how He is a member of the house Military and Good is the quartermaster

Ok, now that Lunigen's personality and background snippets are posted for your viewing, any initial reactions while I pore over this thread? Queries for more about anything?

As far as curiosities over his interacting with staff/slaves, the second son is generally willing to chat with anyone, and he's quite the polyglot. He's no love of cruelty, unlike much of his family.

Since both Lunigen and Ba'al Ove have connections to the Order of Undeath they would almost certainly know each other from the past.

How Mary would view the Harkon house members:

Lunigen: Mary finds Lunigen to be the second-easiest LIVING member of the main Harkon house (third, if you count Hanus O'Claire) to deal with. Which really isn't saying much when his father is a cruel tyrant, his brother is a murdering psychopathic rapist (allegedly), and his youngest sister is feared most of all as a conduit of evil. At the very least, Lunigen is respectful in conversation. Mary, however, has never played the close sister-in-law with Lunigen, meeting him with an equal amount of courtesy and consideration... something about him just makes the hair on the back of her neck stand on end. It's unclear how Lunigen would feel about Mary, however... at the very least, she served as a powerful tool in keeping his brother Bejen out of trouble up until his untimely demise.

Craigor: Mary gives Craigor the utmost respect, and snaps to attention when his will is to be done. Mainly because her position in the house is a tenuous one, which, at Craigor's displeasure, could be revoked (along with her life, most likely) at any time. Deep down, Mary despises this man, possibly even more than she does her own father. Oddly enough, she has despised Craigor Harkon for a very long time, as she had met the man exactly one time before. Her father, one of Craigor's bannermen, brought her along to Castle Dalfon when she was very little. Needless to say, for a small child, Craigor is the thing of nightmares. His fearsome power was also the thing that drew her to House Harkon when it was time for Mary to begin her quest.

Charles: Mary avoids Charles as if he were the plague. Making sure to never address him unless spoken to. If even half of the rumors that surrounded the man were true, he would prove to be far too vicious and unstable of a force to deal with. Whenever engaged in conversation with Charles Harkon, Mary keeps her reflexes at the ready... prepared to bury a dagger into his neck (or face/groin, she's not picky) should things ever take a violent turn.

Efena: Depending on Efena's attitude towards her sister-in-law. Mary is either close friends or has a deep respect for the eldest Harkon girl (should Efena despise Mary for seemingly coming from the street). The reasoning for this is two-fold: Mary sees Efena as a truely noble figure, and not a bastion of everything that is wrong with the world. The second reason is because Craigor cherishes his eldest daughter, and Mary finds that being valuable to her, may increase her value to the Lord of the house.

Neira: As an opponent, Neira is far more daunting than Charles could ever be. Mary often muses that, if she were to open up Charles' throat from ear to ear, that Craigor would show his approval. However, if she managed to plant her blade into Neira's beautiful skin; Mary feels that the Lord of the Harkon house would bring the wrath of Hell down upon her. Additionally, Neira is fully capable of doing that herself, in various ways, should Mary ever become an enemy. As such, Mary makes sure to treat Neira with respect and kindness, even if she is a horrid wretch of a girl... and puts up with whatever attitude or disrespect that she may receive in kind... for now.

Hanus O' Claire: Hanus and Mary would possibly be on neutral or even good terms, depending on how much time she actually spends at Castle Dalfon. However, the two would not likely have a lot in common. At the very least, Hanus doesn't radiate evil as much as one would expect from a relative of the Harkon family.

Ba'al:
Sure, I figured that Lunigen & Ba'al would be acquainted.
Lunigen is genuinely affable with the cleric, more so from their history together. They honestly can even be friends, as much as master and servant may be called such. The Harkon scion is at least a novice in theological lore, so he'd welcome extended discussions of the same.

Mary:
At the minimum, in Lunigen's eyes, Mary is a cemented member of the Harkon family and respected as a last vestige of his sadly departed brother. The balance of his attitude will echo how she felt/acted toward Bejen; better, the more genuine their affection. While her prior station was of little concern to Lunigen once she married his brother, now Bejen's widow the Harkon scion makes an effort to be sure she is not overwhelmed by the ... "intense" way of life of the Harkon household, one he has little care for either, as she might learn if she eased her apprehension to converse long enough. While she might have little impetus to strike up an acquaintance, unease aside, his temperament is more than affable and gentlemanly to want to on his part. Whatever is wrong with the diplomat, it at least won't get her frozen or gutted if she looks at him funny.

Well, if Mary would be more aware of Lunigen's views on the inner-workings of the Harkon house (as she would still converse with Lunigen, even if his aura of fear was nagging at her mind) than she would have given an earnest attempt at reciprocating his hospitality. As far as her feelings for Bejen are concerned, Mary tends to keep her true thoughts buried deep within. However, upon his death, Mary truly did mourn for the loss of her husband... as he really was a good man. While Mary would never openly confirm it, as she prefers to keep her lethality a secret, there ARE various rumors that she killed all of Bejen's assailants in a furious rage with nothing but tavern cutlery... which is something that, if believed, would certainly earn her some favor in the eyes of Bejen's family.

Ah, I had forgotten about the affecting "enemies" clause about that aura. His default is definitely that it affects anyone because being scary among his family is, understandably, very important. He can have his fear aura not affect his sister-in-law (if he remembers to, force of habit and a new ability to him & all, only acquired in the last year or so). That is not to say that his own natural talents aren't menacing when he wishes.

As to Lunigen's views, he is reluctant to speak ill of family (not to them, just of them), so that would require a certain level of rapport established. Hm. Mary's been with the house 3-4 years. How long married? And how long since Bejen's death?

Mary was approached by Bejen after her first year with the House, where she showed great initiative and promise as part of the maid staff. (Though Bejen approached her for 'other reasons'.) The two courted for roughly half a year before having a quiet wedding.

Afterwards the two were inseparable, and she would frequently go with him on his tavern-adventures... which had the added benefit of keeping the lush out of trouble and out of the whores. However, only a year after they were married, Bejen's life was cut short during a confrontation at a low-key Tavern by a trio of gang members.

Mary mourned for a few months, and then began working with Linath; assisting in various matters of the house until the current storyline.
