Can't say no to a chance to try out an antipaladin.

Grigori
left-aligned image

Name: Grigori
Race: Dhampir (Svetocher)
Gender: Male
Class: Antipaladin (Tyrant)
Alignment: Lawful Evil
Background Trait: Seeker
Crime: Heresy


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------RP Sample--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Grigori strode through the temple, his deep red cloak pulled tightly around him. He sneered at the exaggerated opulence; such wealth wasted to loudly proclaim allegiance to a lesser deity. Or was the point to display the people's own perceived righteousness? It was sometimes difficult to see the line between Mitrans glorifying their god and glorifying themselves, one always seemed to go with the other. Not for the first time, he wondered if coming here was a good idea. He knew the local high priest, Father Korrin, wanted to see him, and he was also fairly certain he knew why. Grigori was not usually one to come running at the beckoning of a so-called "holy man," but... hiding in the shadows was becoming tiresome. Coming into the open was dangerous, but could be oh so satisfying; and, unlike the Mitrans, he was no coward. He entered the chambers of the clergyman, unintimidated.

"I understand you have been seeking me, priest?" he spoke the man's title with a hint of derision. Korrin looked up from his reading, surprised.

"Yes, I have... Grigori, isn't it? And you should be addressing me as 'Father.'" Typical of such a man, his first thought was to ensure he received the proper reverence.

"With all due respect, priest, you are not my father." Grigori gave a wicked smile, just enough to show a glimpse of his fangs, just in case the subtle reminder of his parentage wasn't enough of a reminder. It had the desired effect, the old man shuddered slightly in obvious fear.

"Yes, well... regardless, I've heard some troubling things about you, Grigori. Very troubling. About things you've been saying, certain... teachings you've been spreading." Grigori said nothing, letting the priest ramble. Was he so afraid of the truth he wouldn't even mention it? "I understand that you have had a... difficult life, my son, but that is no reason to surrender to the evil within you. Mitra's light reaches far and touches all, and no soul is too dark that he cannot brighten it. There is a monastery not far from here, I invite you to spend time there and examine yourself. It is not too late for your soul to be saved."

Grigori nearly laughed. He had expected accusations and recriminations, but this? This was almost too absurd to be angry at. Almost. He stepped closer to Korrin, sneering as the sad old man flinched. "Ah yes, the far-reaching light of the glorious Mitra! Tell me, priest, where was this light when I was a child? Where was it when the last man I called 'father' brought me to a priest for healing and recoiled in disgust when the holy magic only caused me pain? Where was this light when he discovered what I was, that I was not truly his son, and disowned me on the spot? Where was this light when my unfaithful harlot of a mother was forgiven whilst I, an innocent child, was cast out? Let me tell you something, priest, your 'light' is a lie. Nothing more than shield for cowards and their coward god to hide behind. You worship the sun because you fear what lies in the night."

The priest rose, shaking; Grigori couldn't tell if it was in fear or anger. Probably both. "Now see here! I will not have this heresy in my temple!"

Grigori bared his teeth, this time fully exposing his fangs. At the same time, he pulled back his cloak, revealing the sword at his belt. "Oh, I think you will. Sit down." The old man hesitated, apparently not willing to concede to a heretic. "Please, by all means, defy me. I don't mind. I'm sure your blood is delicious." That did the trick, the priest quickly fell into his chair. Could it be that he didn't trust his god to protect him?

"Here's what's going to happen now, priest. I am going to leave, and you are going to leave me alone. You will not pursue your inquiries into my activities any further, and you will tell no one of our discussion here. If you do, do not doubt that I will know about it. Does that sound agreeable to you, priest?" The man's only response was a silent nod of his head. "Good, I knew we could find a solution that worked for both of us. You see, when we work at it, even men of different beliefs can find common ground." He turned and stalked out of the chambers, and on through the temple back onto the city streets. That was one problem solved. A coward like that would surely never risk angering him.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Personality: Grigori seethes with a cold fury. He views the Mitran church and the nobility and royals of Talingarde with a thinly veiled contempt- a veil which drops completely in private. He despises the hypocrisy and self-righteousness he observed often growing up in noble society. He rarely raises his voice, but his hushed words, dripping with venom, convey his anger and hatred as well as any other man’s shouting and railing.

David
right-aligned image

Name: David
Race: Human
Gender: Male
Class: Vivisectionist(Alchemist)
Alignment: Lawful Evil
Background Trait: Inspired
Crime: Murder

RP Sample: So, he had erred.

The pounding at the door grew evermore intense, and the muffled shouts to open up were joined by more and more voices. David let out a tired sigh and fell into his chair with a resigned slump of his shoulders. He pinched his brow, blood spattered gloves leaving a trail down his face.

Where had he gone wrong? He made sure to take people discreetly. He involved none of his servants. He had disposed of the bodies in vats of acid. He had made sure to take only unimportant people-

David shot up in his chair and looked over to his latest experiment. She had long since given up struggling against the bonds that held her to the table. Each limb was secured by a steel latch and her head by a specially prepared mechanism bolted to the table. He had taken great care with this particular experiment, researching the effect of certain poisons on the liver. People tended to get slightly argumentative when you wanted to look at how their liver operated, and so had to be restrained. A cocktail of drugs carefully screened to avoid interfering with the experiment kept his subject’s mind muddled at any rate. There was no reason to cause the subject unnecessary pain. They were giving their life for his science, the least he could do was treat them with some modicum of respect. Well, so long as it didn't affect the experiment…

He leisurely walked to one of his cabinets and pulled out a syringe, and moved to wake the subject. He had to confirm his suspicion. It took only a moment for the cocktail to counter the effect of the drug keeping her complaint and she began to stir. David waited patiently for her to get the struggling, the cursing, the crying out of her system.

The banging at the door turned to slamming. They were finally trying to break it down then. He had only minutes now. He put his hand over the woman’s mouth, quieting her. Her eyes widened in fear, and he could feel her breath quicken beneath his hand.

“Listen, woman. If you answer my question I swear to you that I will let you up from this table and leave this room alive. Blink twice if you understand.” he said sternly. She blinked twice, eyes filled with hope. Satisfied, David removed his hand.

“Who are you that the guards would look for you so urgently?” he questioned, the desire to know burning in his mind. She blinked, surprised.
“I.. I’m no one ser. Just a lowly servant for -” she continued on, but David was no longer listening. Of course! He thought to himself. He had taken her two nights ago. A servant for a noble family would be missed at work, and their employer was influential enough to compel the guard to start an investigation earlier than they might otherwise. Satisfied with his answer, he released the woman from her binds. She jumped up immediately and ran to to the corner of the room, eyes darting to and fro, not believing her luck.

“Well girl, go. I promised you would leave this room alive, and I never lie. You are free to go.”

She looked at him, stunned, and paused only for a moment more before darting to the room, and up the long flight of stairs to freedom. David poured himself a glass of wine and sat in his chair. As he took his first sip he heard a large thud. So, once the heart rate was elevated it took approximately twenty seconds for the position to take effect. Interesting.

The slamming ended with a large crack, and he could hear voices shouting from above. So they were inside. David was content, though. With the last witness taken care of and his research book sufficiently hidden, it would survive him. And one day, he would return to continue his research. Whether the ignorant fools in charge of the realm wanted it or not.

Personality: Calm, Logical, methodical, David is the epitome of the cold and detached scientist. He sticks to a strict personal code, which includes not lying, not causing unnecessary suffering, and always putting his science before his well being.

Name: Satine De'mornay
Race: Aasimar
Gender: Female
Class: Cleric of Asmodeus
Alignment: LE
Background Trait:
Crime: Heresy
RP SampleIt was a scene of pure debauchery. The candles were lit low and bodies moved together in sinful bliss. The tithes in the chalice were piled high and she was wearing her favorite leather outfit as she stood before the altar and spoke in a loud voice so all could hear. "Hail to the goddess of darkness! Hail to seduction and carnality! We renounce the ways of the light and bask in the glory of the dark! Hail great Asmodeus!" There was some commotion at the front doors and she sighed. "Quickly to the tunnels! Escape my flock flee the pale servants of the light!"

She moved through them darkness trailing in her wake as she made her way to the door barring it and then standing before it with hammer and shield in hand. The flock fled behind her while she waited. The banging of the great log as it hit the door again and again ringing throughout the chamber she had created. Finally the door crashed open and the servants of the pale deity of light stood before her. A few people were still nude and clambering out of the chamber, the torches the men brought shining on the pornographic artwork on the walls and these servants of the light paused in outright shock before one found his voice. "This is Heresy! You will burn for this Lady Satine!"

She laughed at him and swung her hammer at his face. "Only if you don't kill me. For the glory of Asmodeus! For Darkness may it ever reign over your pitiful light!"

Personality: Satine is very much the Femme Fatale. Mysterious, beautiful, seductive, and deadly. She works well within any group even going so far as to calm rivalries and the like though she will always be looking for a way to ensure that she comes out on top and more people hear of the great Asmodeus.

The guide mentions the possibility that all divine classes must worship Asmodeus. Is that the case for this game? I'm hoping that a cleric of a lesser devil who is (at least in the Golarion universe) subordinate to Asmodeus would be acceptable. Specifically, I'm looking at Alchino.

I will say that there will come a time that swearing allegiance to Asmodeus will be required... or not.

I'll work more on my app for my completed character. Artog wants to find some new friends and have more adventures, get cozy rich and not ask too many questions along the way.

Edited my app for more detail into this fun little guy.

You mentioned minions and cohorts, is Leadership a requirement? Just planning ahead. My guy knows how to take and give orders.
