Valeska Al’Tyrith

Eldritch Butler
Race: Elf
Gender: female
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Background: Butler
Class: Eldritch Knight

Personality Traits: I am a perfectionist, always pushing myself to my limit.
Ideal: Even if the task seems impossible, I shall never give up. If I take one step at a time, eventually the solution will reveal itself. All that’s required is a little time and patience.
Bond: I became as I am to escape a darker time in my life. That time is behind me now, but the faces from the past still linger.
Flaw: I can be rude to the unclean and unmannered if I find they need to be “educated.”
Fears: Abandonment; losing her memory; running into “old friends”; becoming a puppet of tyrants; falling into madness; dying without a legacy; dirt; ruining clothes; dead rot; maggots and other nasty insects.

Relationship with Master: I was fond of master, the boy was to be my legacy. My one redemption. I did all I could to ease his black moods and provide wise council. Yet, the young master expected me to solve all his problems; and, in doing so perhaps I coddled him. Perhaps the fault is squarely mine, and mine alone.

Description: Valeska’s ageless mien does little to disguise a lifetime of toils and troubles. In all her 124 years, the last two has left her simply exhausted. With sunken blue eyes, Valeska’s gaze exudes a perpetually hawkish and dour edge. Of late very little amuses her, but in the name of cynicism she’ll happily serve up a mocking smile nonetheless. Golden hair falls far passed her shoulders, tousled and cascading in winding tendrils. Her most treasured possession is the old cape and pocket watch of her beloved master, Lord Myron.

The world may be a grimy pit of despair but Valeska goes out of her way to maintain a pristine image in public, always arrayed in formal and stylish black men’s attire that is in no way easy to come by. However, that’s not to say her inner-man couldn’t use some work. Valeska is partial to smoking and has a notorious gambling habit. As a quirk, she is more apt to tidy a room than investigate it, and will “fix” little details without thinking. Old habits are certainly hard to forget! Dirt of any kind is greatly despised. She won’t touch moldy food or eat from plates and cutlery that aren’t perfectly immaculate. Finally, as is typical of her race, Valeska is disgusted by dead, rotted things and will avoid dallying with such if she can help it.

Valeska derives her very identity from the meticulous facade that took decades to construct. She is the proud and magnificent butler of House Volkhart, a family of impeccable lineage and magical prowess. She has gone through great lengths to embody their upright values, for they were kind enough to take in a complete stranger from the road. From henceforth Valeska dedicated her life to the subtle craft of etiquette and refinement. The urge to maim and kill does tickle from time to time, but there is truly no greater pleasure in life than catering to the needs of others.
