Emma Vandragon

Description:

A thin, elderly woman who alternates between a slightly stooped posture and a stalwartly arrogant straight-backed stance, Emma boasts shock white hair arranged in loose, often clumped strands down to a point slightly past her neck, held out of her eyes by a pretty white flower pin. Her hands and limbs have a certain twisted grace, her eyes are a deep and vibrant blue, and her mouth filled with clean, straight, white and on occasion disturbingly pointy teeth. At her shoulder rests a small bird, at first passable for a standard pet but upon closer examination easily distinguishable as a diminutive white chicken. While she is passably attractive for an old lady something about her stance jars the senses, her eyes are always fixated in places they shouldn't and her concept of personal space seems laughable at best.

Things you know so far
Her chicken is named Prometheus.
She doesn't seem to have a lot of respect for anything remotely resembling a prophecy.

Name: Brother Damian
Race: Human
Occupation: Traveling Priest of Pharasma / Adventurer (not by choice)
 

Description:
Brother Damian is a middle age man who has dedicated his life to the service of the people in Pharasma's name. He appears younger than his age and is in good physical shape, due to his travels from village to village easing the passing of death and aiding the rebirth of past souls. He is slightly shorter than your average male human, though rather heavier built. Whilst from a distance his considerable bulk makes him appear an easy target many bandits have found him to be more of a challenge than he appears. They now await rebirth in the halls of Pharasma.

His amber eyes seem to hold a vast wisdom, and he keeps his black hair in a tidy ponytail ending just below his shoulders. He wears a robe, one half black, one half white smeared in the middle, to represent the cycle of the soul. Thick black boots adorn his feet and keep they dry from the muddy roads he once walked.

Personality:
Brother Damian is a kind and understanding fellow quick to humor, something many find odd in the worshiper of Pharasma. Something he wishes to change. He travels the land seeking to change this perspective of his goddess. Death is not something to be feared but embraced. All life has a set time and once your time has come there is little you can do to avoid it. After all there is only one certain in life. Death.

His other duty, equally as important, is to calm those preparing to cross into the halls of his goddess to wait rebirth into the life cycle as the worldly races know it. His is the job of the death kneeler, the peace bringer in final moments of one's life.

NAME: Ophelia [Last name unrevealed]
RACE: Elf

DESCRIPTION:
Tall, lean and lithe, she appears almost insubstantial. Her pale skin seems translucent, and her waifish figure looks like it will sail off through the air at the first strong gust of wind.

Her eyes, though.... Her eyes tell a different tale. Pale and hard as silver, and twice as cold, her eyes reveal that she's not someone who should be crossed. Moreover, they show that she's someone who will do everything in her power to keep someone from crossing her twice.

PERSONALITY:

At first glance, Ophelia appears to be a dainty, delicate flower. Anyone foolish enough to let their first impressions fool them will soon find out exactly how wrong they are. This young, fearless "girl" will gladly show them the error of their ways. If they're lucky, they'll find themselves just a little bit lighter as she slips away with their coin-purse in hand. The not-so-lucky ones? Well, let's just say it's lucky for her that replacement daggers are both plentiful and cheap.

RUMORS:
  • Rumor has it that her lock pick set was stolen from a member of one of the smaller local thieves guilds.
  • There are those who notice that Ophelia's arrival in the city neatly coincides with the disappearance of an Elven noblewoman's daughter.
  • She once pinned a man's hand to the bar for looking at her funny.
  • Some people say that none of these stories are in the least bit true, but Ophelia encourages them to build her reputation. Maybe she even started some of them herself.

Name:Ulysees
Race: Gnome
Occupation: Wizard (PC)
Player:Nathan555

Description: You see a short, rather thin male for gnome standards hunched over at his work bench. After delicately pouring chemicals from one jar into another, Ulysees takes off his leather safety hat revealing matted down black hair with graying strands. His green eyes are tired from years of straining under close range- so ulysees rests his pair of thick glasses at the tip of gnomish-nose.

Personality:Ulysses is an example of turning hobbies to borderline obsessions. If he isn't in his work station (filled to the brim with alchemist equipment, scraps of metal strewn about, and a whole shelf full of scrolls and spellbooks), then you will most certainly see him at least carrying a book on history, geography, politics or the like.

Current Whereabouts: He was last seen entering the Teary Eyed Maiden, however, in the chaos that ensued it is unclear as to what has become of the gnome.

----------------------------------------
Name:Killic Orise
Race: Human
Occupation: Fighter(PC)
Player:Shards of Light

Description: Killic is a young man of only 19 who is finding his way through the world. The wear and tear that come from this show vividly on his body. His chest and back are covered in scars. He is tall for a human, being about six feet tall, and is fairly broad. His eyes are green as an elf's, and his hair is a dark brown. He keeps a cloak on most of the time, seeming as though he is trying to blend in, which he tends to do as long as his shirt is on and the scars are covered.

Personality: Killic is devoted to doing the right thing, and he is aggressive about doing it. He has trouble seeing the world in anything but black and white. He is smart enough to often take round and about methods to do what he thinks is right, but he will never back off from doing it. He loves the thrill of a challenge, and he finds that the satisfaction of helping someone else outweighs the personal risk every single time.

Current Whereabouts: Killic was last scene staring into the the rampant energy portal just outside the Teary Eyed Maiden. A lone bolt of portal energy struck the warrior and he hasn't been scene since.

Name: Sydney Rose
Gender: Female
Class: Fighter

Unusually small to be the wielder of a greatsword, Sydney Rose is one individual who has literally turned her life upside-down to seek out facts about her father's murder. She has a lot to learn about being a Fighter, but her determination keeps her motivated and focus, and she is going to need this determination in the trials to come.

Sydney wears a torn white robe of sorts that still shows signs of being elegant and expensive. It is apparent that the robe was once a dress but it has since been torn in two to fit Sydney's needs. The top half is white and comes up in a halter-top fashion around her neck and chest. The bottom half is a dirty-white skirt that reaches just below her knees. Across her back lies a massive greatsword; at least, the sword looks large compared to Sydney's smaller, petite frame.

Tidbits:
--Changed last name from "Menas" to "Rose" to hide her family name.
--Has a red rose tattoo on her right shoulder blade.
--Never been in a battle that was life or death or was not against her best friend, Emanuel
--Was beaten and almost raped by her lover; he escaped before he was caught.

Name:Peynar
Race:Halfling
Occupation:Bartender

Description: Peynar is pretty tall for his race. He stands as roughly 3' 11" and has long braided black hair. Several small trinkets are looped in his hair (things from a silver leaf to a copper piece). He has a sharp face and devious smile. He is typically seen wearing a suit of leather armor that has been dyed red.

What you know: Peynar was a a really nice fellow and was always willing to spare a drink for some Arshana's adventurers when they were short on the coin. He is most famously know for his Dragonbreath Blast (a favorite of Karlon).

Current Whereabouts: You last saw Peynar in the bar of the Teary Eyed Maiden after he was throw into the wall by the strange man.

----------------------------------
Name: Edras "Nightwalker" Hawindorin
Race: Elf
Occupation: Local Historian and weekly entertainment at the Teary Eyed Maiden

Description: Sometime when Nightwalker is intoxicate he will the tale of the light worshiping elves and their dark worshiping cousins. This great divide (what according to Edras caused some elves to become drow) didn't include all elves and their were those who claimed traits of both types. Edras claims to come from these elves.

Edras stands 5' 2" and is commonly seen in elaborate scholars robes or a set of black studded leather. He is rarely seen without his black cap, adorned with a single bright cockatrice feather. He cares an elegantly carved mandolin with him when he is in the Maiden and a satchel everywhere else. His hair is long and black and his skin is tinted silver almost. His eyes are a deep and vibrant purple.

Name: Cathorin
Race: ?
Occupation: ?
First Appearance Chapter 1: Fractured Reality

Description:Cathorin is covered in a blue-black hair and has clawed feet and clawed hands. Long black hair hangs down its face it drops to the ground. It stands you would guess it to be a human no older than ten or eleven if it weren't for the body hair. Cathorin appears incredibly well muscled and agile as it dances about on the ground.

What you know: Not a whole lot. Cathorin was the mysterious talking creature encountered by Damian, Emma, Allen and Sydney in the clearing in the middle of the strange glass structure's jungle. It (as you aren't entirely sure of gender, though it appears male) shouted mysticisms and claimed that Emma was too much like 'them'. It seemed to have a fascination with pie but that seemed to be buried by a much more ominous warning. By your best guess this creature suffers from not being entirely sane if not something more nefarious.
