Sorcha

Sorcha inghean Feradach of Clan Cullaich, Queen of Collamagh

Ages 3 – 8
King Feradach was killed during at skirmish at the border. Mercia’s raids on border villages were common, but when they targeted the largest trade town in the lowlands, the King made a personal appearance. The battle was hard but won swiftly. Unfortunately the King sustained internal wounds and died a few days later.

As the only child and heir to King Feradach, Sorcha became the Queen of Collamagh at the mere age of three. Queen Caitriona ruled in her stead as Queen Regent, with Feradach’s brother giving council. They ruled as Feradach ruled, upholding his visions for the country’s future.

Before long, Collmagh found it’s borders attacked at all angles. Mercia had always been a threat on land, but Huaich began to more aggressively hit port towns. Collamagh’s growing wealth and influence had become irresistible. Without enough men to defend the country, Queen Regent Caitriona sought powerful allies. With Ailmain sharing issues with both Mercia and Huaich as well as having a prince not much older than seven year old Sorcha, Caitriona accepted the betrothal.

Sorcha spent the next few years at the Ailmain court under the care of her aunt SOMELADY along with her cousin Maura. She was very fond of Dietrich.

Age 9 – 17
At age nine someone tried to smother poor tiny Sorcha in her own bedchamber. The traitorous woman killed herself before she could answer the question of who sent her. There were major issues in Collamagh. Battles with Mercia were still common, but worse, there was dissent amongst some of the clans about the union with Ailmain. A small grouping believed it was the wrong choice and rumors suggested they were backing a new heir. Queen Regent Caitriona was beginning to second guess the arrangement.

Ailmain did not want to let this investment go, but Sorcha and Dietrich were still too young to marry. Sorcha was spirited away under the cover of night to an unknown location, with promises to Caitriona that her daughter would be safe and that Ailmain would continue to support Collamagh.

Sorcha’s years at the Abbey were quiet and peaceful. Known only as another one of the orphaned girls who made their home there, Sorcha was expected learn and do her chores like all the others. She cared for the animals, washed and mended clothes, cleaned, cooked, amongst other things during the day. At night she would be tutored in history, politics, court and all the necessities of being Queen by LADYNUN who had once been lady of the court in her youth. There were a brief few months when Sorcha was thirteen that she decided she was sick of hiding and she nearly ran away along with the aid of her friend and confidant before they were caught and she got a terrifying lecture from LADYNUN. Once she had a crush on the boy that brought letters and parcels to the Abbey, but that faded and before long he was chasing some other girl.

Present
Sorcha’s location has been discovered and an attempt has been made on her life. She must be returned to the Ailmain court and is soon to marry Dietrich.


Personality

Sorcha was born naturally wild and rebellious. She’ll listen and follow the rules but first she has to ask why and expects you to be able to answer her in a way she finds satisfactory. Raised since birth to be a queen, her responsibility and obligations have been drilled in to her. When she was small, she willfully fought against it, but as she grew older and gained experience, she understood what it meant to be Queen. Sorcha behaves appropriately for a place and situation, though she still has her moments of being a reckless teenager.

Sometimes Sorcha feels trapped by her position. Doing sneaky reckless things become very enticing for an opportunity to get away and not be a queen for a few moments. Most of the time she resists, but some opportunities are too good to pass up. This is generally aided by someone whispering in her ear that it’s a glorious idea.

Love and Happily Ever After is not something Sorcha ever expects to have. That is not something Queens get. She’s just glad that Dietrich is close to her age, her friend and someone she actually likes. It could have been a lot worse. Daydreaming about romance is so lovely though!

Sorcha feels like she needs to prove herself to the world. Because she grew up away from her own country and not fully part of the Ailmain court, she feels like neither are going to take her seriously as a ruler. She doesn’t want to be Dietrich’s trophy wife, she wants an equal partnership. Sorcha has opinions and she is going to share them.

At the moment, Sorcha also thinks she’s invincible and perfectly capable of handling herself in a dangerous situation. Foiled assassination attempts and growing up in a safe place gave her a false sense of security and has made her ill prepared for life at court. She’s been told what’s it’s like and how to be careful, but she’s over confident. She carries a knife with her and she insists she knows how to use it.

On the bright side, Sorcha learns fast from mistakes. She will admit when she’s wrong and take responsibility for it. If her trust is broken, though, it takes a lot to build it back up again. Sorcha doesn’t forgive easily and the more personal the hurt, the more stubborn she is about it.

Sorcha has learned the hard way that titles can affect even the closest of friendships. At the Abbey she had several friends and once it was discovered that she was a Queen, it changed. Her closest friend felt so betrayed that Sorcha never shared her secret. The rest simply treated her different. There felt like an uncomfortable invisible barrier. There is a rumor that one of the girls, one of her friends, was the spy that revealed her location. But because Sorcha had to leave the Abbey so quickly, none of this has been resolved. She doesn’t know who betrayed her, if someone at the Abbey even did, nor has her best friend yet to respond to her letters. Friendship is now something very precious and valuable to Sorcha.


History of Collamagh

A clan (Colla) united the warring clans under one banner. The lands became known as Collamagh. This was so long ago that the original story has become more of a legend than known fact. Some say Colla was a single man blessed by the fae who birthed the first clans by giving sets of lands to his sons. Others recognize Colla as a conquering clan that fought and captured it’s way across warring tribes to unite all it’s people. There are five clans that claim to be direct descendants of Colla, and most often it is one of these clans that rule as Sovereign of Collamagh. The Cullaich clan has the strongest claim due to a long recorded history. At present they have held the throne for six generations.

Collamagh is a small country and for most of it’s history as been self-reliant with no desire to get involved in world trade or politics. Trade markets with other countries were small and few. When the Cullaich clan regained the throne they began negotiations for international trade and allies. The town of Braewick is now it’s largest port of trade.

It’s major exports are fish, cattle, fine leather craft, and wool. Though recently a wealth of silver mining has begun.

In the past three generations, Collamagh’s rising wealth has attracted the attention of it’s neighbors. Huaich has begun to threaten it’s ports, while Mercia is pushing in at it’s land borders. Treaties have not been successful with either country, with things going as far as Mercia out-right trying to invade. After the death of King Feradach in one of these skirmishes, Collamagh made allies with Ailmain through a promise of marriage to it’s still-young Queen.

The Queen Mother Caitriona has been ruling Collamagh as Regent until her daughter Queen Sorcha takes control.


Character Relationships

Caitriona inghean Roibeird of Clan Cullaich – Sorcha’s Mother. Queen Regent of Collamagh. Woman with a spine of steel. Caitriona is not someone to be trifled with, but living without her husband and the years of ruling in Sorcha’s stead have started to take their toll on her health.

SOMELADY of Clan Cullaich – Maura’s mother, Sorcha’s Aunt. King Feradach’s sister. She married in to Clan Cullaich from Clan ????, another clan that claims to be a bloodline of Colla. She feels her daughter has a bigger right to the throne than Sorcha and there is a small group of people who agree. This is not something she openly advertises.

LADYNUN of Abbey – As a young woman, she was a lady of the court. She chose not to marry and joined the Abbey. She is one of the few people that knew Sorcha was at the Abbey and was Sorcha’s teacher. She’s a stern, pious woman, and no one would call her friendly. But she was a good teacher and kept the girls of the Abbey in line.

Maura inghean Magnus of Clan Cullaich – Sorcha’s cousin. They grew up together and were together in Ailmain until Sorcha was whisked away to hiding. They were close friends before, but haven’t yet recaptured that friendship. Maura is a quiet, gentle and thoughtful young woman. Some believe she should be the Queen of Collamagh and that this marriage to Ailmain is a terrible idea. She may just agree. Quietly. Where no one can hear her.

Besseta of Clan Maxton – A lady of titles and fortune and ambitions. There was a lot of sneakery involved in getting anointed as one of the queen’s ladies. She absolutely believes that Sorcha marrying in to Ailmain is the right thing to do, but would happily take her place if given the chance. Openly admits (to Sorcha) that she would throw Sorcha under the carriage if it meant she could wed the future king instead and reminds Sorcha to mind her reputation and think about what’s best for her country. Because she’s not the only one. She’s a huge bitch to anyone she doesn’t deem worth her energy and is kind of an awful person.

Delila of clan Lochreid – Is an absolute nitwit and unreasonable moron, but she is the last heir to her family name and property. She was shipped away by her aging Uncle in hopes that some besotted fool would be charmed by her prettiness enough to ignore the fact she’s an idiot and marry her anyway. She doesn’t want to get married though, Delila wants to run away and have some torrid romance and amazing adventures that get written about in history books. She’s incredibly supportive of Sorcha, especially if there will be a drama involved.

Bridget of Clan Neacail – Probably the closest to Sorcha in temperament and interests, in fact the were almost instant friends. She’s spent most of her time in Ailmain. She encourages Sorcha’s independence and right to use her weight as Queen. She doesn’t have a notable or wealthy family, and she one daughter of seven, so the connections she makes at court are very important. Bridget understands how much pressure Sorcha is under and is always there to whisper advice in her ear, or to sit and listen.

Confidant Friend at the Abbey – Sorcha’s first friend at the abbey and eventual confidant. She was secretly the “decoy girl” should anyone ever discover Sorcha was there. She possibly dies when the abbey is invaded.

Friend at the Abbey 2 – Arrived at the abbey a couple years after Sorcha and became part of the trio. She’s always been competitive with the other two girls and filled with questionably bad ideas. She’s incredibly offended that Sorcha never told her the truth, yet trusted their other friend. She hasn’t spoken since and won’t return any of her letters.

Ruthie Bee Burlock

20 Years Old

Mother died when she was young. Father is a well off “business man”, always looking for more. He’s been using his daughter as a bait-n-switch for awhile now. With promises of “Oh yeah you can marry my daughter, but first I’mma need…” and then swindling them out of a nice fat dowry. These days she’s getting to be a problem (and won’t be in her prime for long) so he’s looking to marry her off to the richest guy he can find. If she’s set up for life, he’s set up for life.

Ruthie has never liked being the bait for the witless but if she wanted food and a place to live, a daughter had to do what she must. Now, though, Father plans to get her hitched for real – and the man he’s chosen is a monster. Worst than he is. She WON’T do it. Ruthie has concocted a plan of her own. Find a good guy, or at the very least a guy who understands a good contract, and make a deal. He’ll get a wife to take care of the house and home for a spell and she’ll have somewhere safe to live. When their time is up and Father is out of her hair, they can go their separate ways or revise their contract. It’s a piece of cake and a brilliant plan.

Ruthie’s eyesight has been getting increasingly worse as she’s gotten older. It started as things just being ever so slightly off focus. These days things are very fuzzy and blurry. This has never stopped her from finding ways to work around it and still function. Faces can be hard to recognize so she learned to tell people and emotions apart through tone of voice. With cooking she sticks to meals she can get through by smell and touch without much trouble. Chores are as simple as keeping up with them regularly. The only thing she has trouble with now is reading. She has a pair of spectacles she purchased off a salesman, and they do alright when she wants to sit and read a book and take her time, but aren’t much help for handwritten things, very fine lettering, or when she needs to quickly read a message or instructions.

Because she wants to prove she is perfectly capable of taking care of herself despite her vision problem, she will get very obstinate about asking for assistance. She has hurt herself on more than one occasion for taking things one step too far from her abilities and refusing to admit it was too much. Her father hasn’t helped the situation at all, by constantly reminding her that she is dependent on him for her survival and soon on this future husband. Otherwise, Ruthie is small, but her body is strong. She’s got a good healthy constitution and hearty endurance. Ignoring her vision and her penchant for accidents, she is fit as a fiddle.

Ruthie is a clever girl with strong opinions, but unfortunately she is not very aggressive. Confrontation can be hard for her because she always has this subconscious fear that it’ll end with her getting hit or abandoned. (Her father has never hit her before, but he’s made it clear in a myriad of different ways of what happens to uppity girls that cause problems.) When she does finally hit the end of her rope to snap at someone, it’s never ended well. She’d snap at the wrong asshole or ruin one of her father’s deal.

If she can get out from under the thumb of others, she’s actually a very friendly sunshine kind of person. She likes to have fun, to play, to dance, to enjoy frivolities and life. Ruthie likes to keep herself busy and active, and it doesn’t matter if it’s keeping her own home in order or going out to volunteer or spend time on social calls. When her vision wasn’t so bad, she was very good at cards. She still enjoys saloons and a little gambling, even if she can’t play cards herself. It’s not exactly respectable, but it’s fun. A lot more fun than playing the role of a prim and proper socialite.

She’s still got a spark of spitfire in her and now that she’s old enough to feel like she can do it (with a little help from a desperate situation), Ruthie’s got every intention of taking control of her life.

Kim “Donna Duskdragon” Lee Chung

17

Witch. Comes from an old family bloodline of witches.

Family: Mom, Dad, three siblings (she is the oldest), two aunties, and grandmother.

Doesn’t speak a bit of Chinese or Mandarin, doesn’t care to, and it pisses her grandmother off.

VERY in to the goth scene right now. It perfectly represents her dark and tortured soul.

Calls herself DONNA DUSKDRAGON both as a pen name and in demanding others to call her this. She feels it’s way better for her whole aesthetic as a dark witch of the damned.

Writes a lot of poetry, songs, and original spells.

Surprisingly GOOD at piano, viola, and the oboe. But she hates the oboe. Wind instruments are for nerds.

Not so great with her schoolwork because it’s boring and she’s tired of her family always trying to force her in to a carbon copy of the rest of them. (She’d get good grades if she actually cared.)

Kim is kind of a judgemental bitch and really has no excuse for it beyond just being a brat. She’s only interested in you if you like the same things she does. And if you like something she HATES, she’s going to give you constant hell for it.

No one has ever stepped up and told Kim off before. She’s pretty good at looking scary and intimidating. Great at bluffing. Because it IS all a bluff. Kim is really a creampuff and a coward.

Not a very good witch in terms of actual natural power. She makes up for it by being really crafty with handmade potions and spellwork. Just because she can’t do it herself doesn’t mean she doesn’t know HOW to do it.

She’s the coven leader. Yes she is. YES SHE IS. FUCK YOU.

Rose Ashley Marino

Name: Rose Ashley Marino

Family: Emilio Marino (Dad, owns a hunter’s shop), Rachel McLauren-Marino (Mom, Housewife), Jacob Marino (Brother)

18 Birthday = Halloween

LOVES Halloween, mystical things, and witch lore. Used to dress up as a witch every year for Halloween. Stopped in Sophomore year because her friends said that stuff was lame and childish. Still really interested, but keeps that secret to herself.

Appearance: Grey eyes, naturally tanned skin. Hair is an average shade of brown, but last year she dyed it blond. It’s now grown out and she has this brown to blond ombre thing going. Very curly hair and usually wears it up in a high pony tail. Wears whatever her friends say is cool. (But she kind just really likes simple overalls and turtlenecks)

Dad loves hunting, so she is well familiar with guns. She just doesn’t like guns.

Doesn’t use curse words!

Was friends with Bree until she got mixed up with the COOL KIDS.

Prior to bad influences, Rose was a straight A student. Since Sophomore year her grades have dropped considerably because not only is she trying to do her own homework, her “friends” have convinced her to do theirs too. Part of her appeal is that she’ll do almost anything they pressure her in to, and they keep her on the hook by making her feel like she is special and valued.

None of her old friends want to speak to her anymore. She doesn’t participate in bullying directly, but definitely doesn’t stick up for anyone if one of her cool-kid friends are harassing someone. She keeps defending her cool-kid friends because “they’re just playing, they’re not serious” and they “DO NICE THINGS” to make up for it later. (Those nice things never turn out to be genuinely nice, and conveniently Rose is never around to see the fallout.)

Takes Drama as an elective because it’s fun, and a business management elective because her dad wants her involved in running the shop.

Has no idea what she wants to do with her life, and none of her interests really seem to match up with any potential careers. She knows she’s probably going to end up working at her Dad’s shop, or marrying some guy and being a little housewife. Not a bad life, but it seems so boring.

[b]Princess you are Wooing:[/b] A

[b]Character Name:[/b] Ales Dusek

[b]Gender:[/b] Male

[b]General Appearance:[/b] Tall and lean with dark suntanned skin, rust colored hair, and green eyes. He doesn’t immediately look like he has any muscle on him as he is so wiry, but once the clothes come off you can see the toned muscle under the skin. He has many many scars just about every where you can look. There are several large tattoos on his back, and every time you ask him about them he has a different story. Even with the way he dresses he is clearly a foreigner and doesn’t bother trying to change or hide the fact.

[b]Outward Personality:[/b] A cocky, conceited, careless son of a bitch. Shameless. Does not give any fucks. As far as Ales in concerned he doesn’t have anyone to answer to but himself. Despite the fact he clearly has to with -someone- be it his boss, master, or princess. Somehow he makes it look like whatever he has been ordered to do is something he was going to do anyway. Ales is a liar, and everyone knows he is a liar. But again, he seems to have this ability to always sound believable. It might be the way he answers questions so bluntly and straight-forward, and speaks so plainly with everyone no matter what their title or station is. No one really likes him, yet it’s impossible to hate him. He enjoys taking things at his leisure, and can find the good side of just about any situation. He’d rather be kicking it up than working.

[b]Inner Personality:[/b] Ales is in a weird place. Not the location, but his state of mind. He thought he had life all figured out. His stint as King of Thieves was amazing. Ales was on top of the world and he thought everyone around him was too. He feels betrayed, let down, confused and a little bitter. Yet, he hasn’t put two and two together yet to realized HE is also part of the problem. That he dug himself a hole to bury himself in. Ales knows that there’s something in life that he’s missing and wants, but he just hasn’t figured it out yet.

[b]Background History:[/b] Ales was born clear across the world in a place most people refer to as the [i]Badlands[/i], [i]Devilrock[/i], or various other suitable names perfect for the worst place on the planet. The terrain is all desert, rock and mountain. Dry heat and terrible conditions for living. So of course this place is a den of thieves and villainy. Centuries of banished and exiled people creating their own tribes. Raiding and pillaging each other, or even getting ambitious enough to travel outward to invade, burn, steal, or hock their pilfered merchandise.

Being born a whore’s son, Ales took to the life naturally. A kid’s gotta eat. The older he grew, the better he got at being sneaky. Petty pickpocketing turned to planned hijacking. Fibbing became masterful lies. In fact, he got so damned good at lying, thieving and backstabbing, that Ales rose to the ranks of greatness. A king of thieves. An emperor of ill repute. He took what he wanted, when he wanted and people followed. He was charismatic and clever, successful and conniving.

But the trouble with power is that people want it. And for all of Ales’ clever tales, when he was neck deep in knives there was not a person there to save him. Not a friend, not a companion, not a single loyal man. He tried to build himself a kingdom out of liars and thieves, and he was the biggest idiot of them all. The moment there was an opportunity, all those men he collected turned on him in a split second.

Someone decided killing Ales was too kind, whether it be their own idiocy or someone still having a bit of regret for the man they called King. So they tied him up and sold him in to slavery. The first caravan leading out to the farthest kingdom in the world. Off Ales went on a new kind of adventure.

[b]How they got this job:[/b] That IS the question, isn’t it. Here is a foreigner, that no one seems to know anything about. Yet, somehow he is now a royal guard for a princess, on a very important mission, for a country and imperial army he is not even a member of. He denies being a mercenary, he is clearly not a soldier. He wasn’t hired by the neighboring country. All that’s known is the general saying he NEEDED to be there, and he was “a good man for the job”. There is a large possibility that his has A BIG BAD SECRET.

[b]Why do YOU think this character is perfect for PRINCESS A? How do YOU think they might fall for each other?[/b]
There would be a lot of conflict between A and Ales. She believes so strongly in duty, honor and loyalty, and he thinks it’s a load of bullshit. AND he’s got no problem voicing that opinion. He’d announce right off the bat he finds this mission stupid. That she’s just gonna end up married to some asshole, that there’s probably going to be a war anyway, that all of this is a waste of time and you might as well do things for yourself. Over time and adventures, he’s going to respect the way she so fiercely defends her sisters, how she defends her beliefs even when he’s being dick. He’ll start to realize that it could be possible to have a real connection with someone, to trust someone and rely on someone. And for Princess A, maybe he can help her discover that duty and honor is not the only thing to live your life for. That even with all that responsibility it’s even MORE important to take care of yourself and find time for enjoyment. Those moments can be fleeting… as they will find out when the time comes to drop her off and she has to choose between duty, honor and responsibility… or the heart. 8D

Alaina James

Saloon Owner

Alaina is a strong minded, stubborn individual. She doesn’t consider herself bitter, but sometimes she gets fed up with her lack of luck. Alaina takes great pride in her business and might get a little competitive. Her attitude might border on self righteous when it comes to less legal or moral activities, and she keeps a shotgun behind the bar in case anyone steps out of bounds. She’ll step in the middle of any fight that happens in her saloon, but minds her own damn business when she’s out and about.

Alaina was born and raised in the country. She married her childhood sweetheart young and both used their meager family inheritance to purchase a nice plot of land so they could farm and raise horses. While they struggled to get started, her husband worked in the local mines. Within a year, there was a mysterious and unfortunate mine collapse and none of the worker’s bodies were found in the rubble.

For awhile Alaina tried to run the farm on her own with a few helping hands, but another family in town used shady methods to force her into selling her land. She used her money to buy a saloon in town and has been running the place ever since.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column_inner][/et_pb_row_inner][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_2″ _builder_version=”3.25″ custom_padding=”|||” custom_padding__hover=”|||”][et_pb_image src=”http://space-kitten.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/brandy-james.jpg” align_tablet=”center” align_phone=”” align_last_edited=”on|desktop” admin_label=”Image” _builder_version=”3.23″ animation_style=”slide” animation_direction=”left” animation_duration=”500ms” animation_intensity_slide=”10%” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” animation=”left” sticky=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on”][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_section]

Saori Miyako

GENERAL CHARACTER STATISTICS

Name: Miyako, Saori (Last name first, as traditional Japanese style.)
Gender: Female
Age: 24
Birthplace: Aotakigawa, Japan
Occupation: Doctor/Healer

PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

General Appearance: Beautiful, Radiant… Normal! Saori doesn’t claim to be a great beauty, but if you deny she is, she might hurt you. Her hair is long just to her hips in a raven black with bluish tones when hit by the light. Her eyes are a dark chocolate brown with that half closed lazy expression, topped with thin eyebrows that have that uncanny ability to cock up with a dubious look while she’s staring you down. Saori always has a pleasant smile and warm eyes, though rarely if she thinks no one is looking, she might look lost in a sad or serious thought. The shape of her body is slender, almost too slender, due to her excessive use of her energy to care for others. She is all muscle and skin, aside from a very robust chest which sometimes gives the impression that she might topple with all the top weight.

Saori’s choice of clothing is simple and feminine. She wears a wrap around kimono styled top along with a separate straight skit with a slit at one side. Usually this is ensemble is in ivory with different color trim around the seams, cuffs and sash depending on her mood. No matter what the clothing she wears, Saori always chooses to wear her tan dearskin boots. They are her favorite things in the world.

Strengths: Though Saori is a healer and not a fighter, she is skilled in defensive actions. If she is forced to be at the scene of a fight, she will be on the outskirts protecting from outside attacks or doing long range attacks herself. Her main goal would be to jump in to someone’s aid if they were to fall wounded in the middle of battle. Shielding them from any further attacks, she’d use her skill to heal them as best as possible or remove them to safety.
Weaknesses: Hand to hand combat or close range fighting is not her strong point. As she spends so much of her own energy on caring for others, her own body is not as strong as someone with her training should be.

MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

Current Goal/Purpose: Build a stock of herbs and medicines from all over the world.
Talents: Cooking a delicious meal from seemingly nothing! Going from Sweet to Crazy in less than 2 seconds!
Inabilities: Keeping her temper during completely inappropriate situations. (Like someone spilling the milk…)
Fears: Ghosts, Demons… any sort of supernatural beasties that seems “inhuman”. They freak her out.

General Personality: Sweet and Sour Saori is the nickname many people in the village tend to call her. The kind and gentle care she gives to others comes as natural to her as making riceballs. But, it’s riceballs with a dash of wasabi. Strangest things will set Saori off in to a complete murderous tangent. She will be worried sick as she tends your wounds, but if she discovers you earned them from doing something stupid, well… You might need to go elsewhere to heal your face once she’s through. If Saori is cooking a meal and someone tries to steal a bite before dinner, you find yourself pelted with raw potatoes. Why is Saori so moody? No one is really sure, but people suggest that she spends so much time trying to be pleasant and kind to people that she bottles up all her real thoughts and they end up exploding out of her in petty tantrums. Her behavior in a fight or otherwise serious situation seems to have these same yin/yang tones. In the middle of a battle she’s happy, smiling, seemingly unworried about the situation. But, if someone is hurt or in serious danger her smiles are turned off like a light switch and she is instantly involved and managing the problem. Saori is one hundred percent focused on her task of taking care of others.

Inner Personality: What is Saori when no one is looking? Saori isn’t sure. She seems to wrap herself up in a happy aura, that often times she doesn’t even understand her own feelings about things. In fact she spends so much time trying to consider what her place is in life and how she feels, that she thinks too much about it. Saori doesn’t know what to do about herself, so she just tries to keep her mind focused on everyone else.

Secret: If there’s a secret in Saori’s life, she probably isn’t even aware of it herself.

HISTORIC BACKGROUND

History: The Miyako family appears to be a close loving group of people filled with tradition. This is very much true, but they rarely seem to show this affection towards each other. Saori’s parents love each other with out a doubt, but they fight like feudal clans night and day. Coupled with the continuous Father-Son battle between Saori’s father and her grandfather, it’s made home life a little shaky. (The actual cause of the tension between her Father and Grandfather is still unknown to her. They never actually want to explain why they’re so angry and insist it’s not a woman’s business.) Despite the rocky times, Saori loves her family and is content in knowing her family loves her, even if it’s unspoken.

Saori is the reigning Doctor and Healer of her village. Injured students, warriors, and villagers come to her for assistance with all sorts of wounds from mere scratches to near fatal injuries. Only a few times has Saori failed to save someone, and this is something that scars her deeply. Though she still smiles, she’ll step back or change the subject if those people are mentioned in her presence.

A life outside being a doctor? Never! There is always some ill or injured. Though, when Saori can escape her duties she adores cooking. She’ll cook so much that she tends to have much more food than she could ever eat by herself and is always trying to pawn it off on others. Her cooking talents are almost as fantastic as her healing, as she can take completely random ingredients and make a delicious meal.

Present Life: There is a shortage of many rare herbs and medications that are a staple of any prepared healer’s collection. Saori is trying to travel and pick up these necessary things.

GENERAL CHARACTER STATISTICS

Character Name: Professor Samael Archibald Norse
Name Meaning: None
Alias: “Doc.” He hates that nickname, though.
Gender: M
Species/Race: Human
Age: 39
Place of Birth: Bristol, England.
Current Residence: Billington Estates, uptown London
Occupation/School/Grade: Professor of Theology and Philosophy
Family: Nathaniel Norse (father; deceased), Elizabeth Norse (mother; deceased), Lucille Grottingsby (sister; deceased), Alfred Grottingsby, (brother-in-law; Samael wishes he was dead).

PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

Height: 5′ 10″
Hair: Salt-and-pepper black
Eyes: Dark
Distinguishing Marks: None
General Appearance: The professor’s long history of sorcery has taken a bit of a toll on his body; he is leaner than he should be at his age, although he is far from frail or weak. Still, his endurance is limited, so instead of running from battles, he will attempt to either suspect his attacker in stone long enough for him to escape, or simply put all his energy into a one-shot teleport to one of his three fixed locations (the basement of his home, his winter home in Italy, or the center of the London sewers). Samael avoids dressing in black, as it makes him look more gaunt than he actually is, which attracts unneeded attention. He is usually wearing a pressed, tailor-made suit, and takes great care in his appearance.
Strengths: Although he is not a decent fighting type of sorcerer, Samael is an expert on summoning and binding demons to the various talismans he carries. The demons he summons with these are fairly mediocre in power (for a demon, anyway); to summon something larger, he needs to use his equipment at home. Since he does not have the strength of his youth as much as he used to, Samael is a tactical man these days–he will turn himself invisible in a battle, sneak into some shadows, and fire entangling nets of demon fire or some such at any opponents. If outmatched, he will teleport away.
Weaknesses: He may be a strong summoner, but Samael is not as young as he used to be. And a lifetime of necromancy has taken a definite toll on his body. In close-range combat, he’s as good as dead unless he can teleport away or make a quick summoning. Samael is also a perfectionist; he cannot leave something alone if he thinks he’s made a mistake. This has almost cost him his life more than once, but old habits are hard to break.
More: Ironically enough, Samael first got into the occult nearly twenty years ago, when he was first starting his career as a doctor. Samael sold his own soul to the devil in exchange for miraculous healing powers, and great luck as a surgeon. The highly critical church, though, began to get suspicious, so Samael quickly gave up his practice and moved from his hometown of Bristol to London. Now that he was no longer a doctor, Samael wanted his soul back, but the devil refused to back out on their bargain. Panic-stricken at the thought of spending an eternity in Hell after a lifetime of doing nothing, Samael went to college for six years, and became a professor of Theology at the same school, and dedicated the remainder of his life to finding a way to get his soul back.

MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

Allies: The demons he summons
Enemies: The demons he summons, if he cannot bind them.
Current Goal/Purpose: Samael never had any real love for Johnathan, but even he doesn’t hate the man enough to ignore the fact that he accidentally let loose a pack of nightmares into England. Recently, Samael has thought that perhaps capturing and banishing these demons would put him back into good light with the Heavenly hosts, to where they’d give him his soul back.
Talents: Summoning and binding demons.
Inabilities: Strenuous physical activity.
Fears: Samael fears death, for dying would mean going straight to Hell; do not pass Go, do not collect two hundred pounds. All the spells of immortality he’s read have required the sacrifice of another human, though. Samael may be a necromancer, but he’s not evil. Just thinking about killing another person like that makes him cringe.
General Personality: Professor Norse is an intelligent, bookish man, who insists on perfection. Everyone who knows him speaks well of him, saying how clever and well-mannered he is. Samael is a “devout” Catholic, and attends Sunday mass at exactly nine o’clock sharp.
Inner Personality: Although a bit cryptic sometimes, Samael is not very different in private than he is in public. He tends to be a bit more fussy (if that’s actually possible), but even in the middle of a summoning, he is cool, calm, and even pleasant.
Fondest Memory: Nothing comes to mind, but if you asked him, he’d probably have a few right off the top of his head.
Biggest Regret: Selling his soul.
Secret: Samael dreads the thought of any of his friends discovering his unusual “hobby.” Not only would they alienate him, but they would also, no doubt, tell the church, who would have him killed on the spot.

SPECIALTY CHARACTERISTICS

Special Items: On his person, Samael always carries three talismans. The first, a gold necklace with a tiny glass sphere in a clawed hand attached to it, which calls a lesser demon. The second is a simple leather bracelet, which calls a demon of greater power. The third is a ring on his right hand, with silver wings. This activates his teleportation.
Weapons: Samael carries a staff of summoning when he expects trouble, or when he leaves the city on “business.” This item allows him to summon demons and monsters of some power, although he cannot summon named devils or archdukes. As always, though, binding the greater demons after the summoning is a problem, especially those of greater power. The demons from his talismans, though, are always bound.
Magics: Professor Norse is able to cast spells of varying power, such as blasts of hellfire, walls of demon fire, opening gateways to Hell under people’s feet, and so forth. This is not his specialty, though, so he will usually rely on his items, and only go to his true magic if pressed.
More: Samael’s home is his Place of Power. Here, there is very little he cannot summon and conjure up, and he is at his greatest strength here.

HISTORIC BACKGROUND

General History: Samael Archibald Norse was born to Nathaniel Norse, a high-ranking officer in the British navy, and Elizabeth Norse, who was the assistant to the Queen’s dressmaker. From his earliest days, Samael showed an intense passion for learning, and he devoured every book his parents put in front of him. He was most fascinated, however, by the medical sciences, and when he was only nine years old, Samael decided he would become a doctor.

Books and medical journals were Samael’s friends when he was growing up. The politics of the court bored him endlessly, as did the stories of war in far-off countries. All Samael cared about was learning. His disinterest in war turned to a bitter hatred, though, when he learned of his father’s passing in a naval battle thousands of miles from home. His mother, grief-stricken by the news, was in mourning until she passed away years later.

Now alone with his younger sister, Lucille, Samael enrolled into Oxford, and received his degree in medical sciences within a mere two and a half years. The events leading up to the bargaining of his soul, the loss of his practice, and his dedication to the occult begins here, and is described in detail above. Not long after getting his teaching degree, Samael’s sister was married away to a man Samael did not have much respect for to being with, and within six months, she died of cold complications, and Samael has not heard from his brother-in-law since.

Regarding Johnathan, Samael has no recollection of how and why their feud began. Just thinking about the man, though, gives the professor a pounding headache. Peace between the two is unthinkable, as long as one or the other is breathing.

Present Life: Caught up in a fit of rare anger, the professor tried to summon a named demon to deal with Johnathan once and for all. The summoning went wrong, though, and instead of summoning one named demon, Samael summoned several hundred weaker ones, and a few larger forces he has yet to identify. That was several months ago, and the good doctor now spends a considerable amount of his evenings stalking the streets of London, searching for the dark creatures he unleashed.

Michael (Mike) Wesley Traugott

24

Stands at 6’2″ with dirty blond hair and blue eyes. At a glance, you know he’s the kind of guy that works out. He’s good-looking and he knows it. Mike puts in effort to look nice, including wasting everyone’s time by spending forever fixing his hair. Unfortunately his sweet good boy face ruins the more edgy vibe he’d rather go for. Mike has the kind of smile even the most suspicious of grandmothers would trust. He tends to stick with printed tees, plaids, and demin. And he’s been told by Kat he’s not allowed to wear leather unless it’s “frost balls” outside.

Ignoring Mike’s insistence that his band persona is the bad-guy (it’s not, Evander has him beat), Mike is a friendly, charming guy. He likes to joke, play around, flirt, meet people and socialize. He’s actually a great frontman and charismatic person. The trouble, is that he’s so busy having fun that he’s often irresponsible. He’ll drink too much, waste his money, be late for gigs, and has trouble making decisive choices. Mike lets other people handle the hard stuff. If it weren’t for him being fiercely loyal towards his mates and there for them when it counted, they’d have kicked his ass by now. He’s got a hero complex he’s trying desperately to ignore.

Mike was adopted by an aging couple that really wanted a child. He doesn’t know his birth parents and never felt the need to. Oscar and Muriel were delightful, loving parents that really took care of their son. He was home schooled up until middle school because they wanted to make sure he got a proper education both academically and as it turned out, musically. Their little boy was always singing, they figured it was a good call. He took to it immediately and was writing songs as young as eight.

In high school, Mike hit it off with Kat and Evander almost immediately. They had a lot of interests in common. Later when Rhiannon moved to town and became part of their friend group, they started a band. Playing out of Mike’s garage for the first few years, they all figured out where they fit in and their roles. Eventually they found ways to book locations to play for audiences. They were even able to play for their senior prom.

These days Michael is living in his own apartment, paid for by his parents because he ends up investing his share of the gig money back in the band.

Name/Alias: Lana Thomas (With no crazy alias. Who the hell needs one.)

Description: Light brown hair, curvy figure, brown eyes. Appears to be early 30s.

Personality: A woman of little patience for anything she finds irritating. That’ll include idiots, flirts, complainers, pansies, jerks, and… well. Just assume she’s going to automatically dislike you unless you give her a reason not to. Once she DOES, then she’s a great deal more congenial and a reliable companion. Maybe even friendly!

Why this heist?: After two years of rinky-dink crimes, it’s about time she did something noteworthy.

Gear of choice: A pair of unimpressive pistols, A throwing axe, horse shoeing tools, and her wedding ring.

Horse: A palomino stallion she calls “Tom”.

Reputation: Once happily married to Dick Thomas, there was one hell of a “misunderstanding” when their hometown accused the pair of a series of thefts. Her husband was hanged and she got away. Now she’s thinking a little revenge sounds right justifiable! Since she was accused of being a thief, she thought she might as well BE one and took up a life of petty crimes to fund her long-term goal of revenge.

She commands through strong leadership (though occasionally insulting, when it comes to dealing with “stupid” people) but always acts with fairness and good humor. What she’s not fond of is anyone trying to “woo” her or tie her down to some frilly romantic relationship. Delilah values her personal freedom. Her loyalties lie with the Sea Raven, and she never betray her crew!
Inner Personality: What you see is what you get! The only thing Delilah keeps to herself is her worries and fears. She has no desire to go home and be some kept trophy wife. Thoughts of prison also aren’t all that appealing.

Uncle Marcus told her enough stories, she was able to track the man down. She showed up demanding that Marcus let her be crew. She’s worked hard from being a cabin girl up to being First Mate simply be determination and wit. Delilah has no desire to be Captain, she’s content being on crew and sailing the seas.

Present Life: It’s been just over five years with the Sea Raven. Delilah has taken to this life well.

Special Historic Notes:
– Ditched an Engagement.
– Joined up with her Uncle Marcus on the Sea Raven.

Character Name: Collete Craven
Gender: Female
Job/Role: Navigator & Captain
Age: Young 30s?

General Appearance: Collete sports a toned body after years of sea-faring labor. She is lean and well sculpted with sun bronzed skin, pitch black hair and dark brown eyes. She doesn’t bother to wear clothing to make her stand out, and is happy as long as she can move and work without it being an inconvenience.
Current Goal/Purpose: Lacking any long term goals, Collete lives life one day at a time. Making money is always good, so is staying alive.
General Personality: Collete is strong, stoic, confident. Had she been a man she would have been a great success in the world, widely respected for her gusto and commanding nature. But since she’s a woman, she’s considered a bitch. The ice queen. A conniving seductive scorpion who pulls you in and gives a fatal sting. Collete does not make friends or allies easily. Her honor and integrity are greatly important to her, and despite her less than legal habits, Collete still holds herself to a strict code of virtue. Never betray a friend. Do not harm the innocent. Too bad for the world, there are few she finds innocent or a friend. As a rule she keeps people at arm’s length – not because she is afraid of being hurt, but because she finds most people beneath her. To Collete, the human race in general is filled with stupid weak people. If you can’t run with the big dogs, you need to stay home. And Collete considers herself a big dog. On the rare occasions that Collete connects with someone on a real level, she is fiercely loyal. To earn Collete’s respect is a very powerful thing.
General History:
Just another poor homeless child in the cold cruel world. Collete’s family weren’t any better than other street scum. Her mother was a opium addicted whore, and her father was – well, Collete has no idea who that could be. At a painfully young age Collete discovered that her mother’s profession was sad existence. Once she realized she was getting old enough to be “recruited”, Collete ran away to see if she could make a life on her own.

Life isn’t easy for a homeless girl on the streets. A lot of people try to take advantage, and Collete learned that you can’t survive unless you get real nasty. Anyone that tried to harm or cheat her was rewarded with a surprise blade in the gullet. Knowing how to spare herself from unsavory types helped greatly as Collete tried many jobs here and there to support herself.

All of these odd jobs eventually led to a life on the sea. Collete found that she took very well to the ocean, and her first experience with sailing was a good one. During her years of sailing with various vessels Collete found herself on the The Harbinger, Navigator for Captain Kessing. She and Kessing had a frivolous affair. Nothing too serious, and she didn’t expect anything more. Kessing was a known flirt.

But when Collete realized she was pregnant… this changed everything. It complicated her feelings about Kessing, about her life, about everything. Collete left the ship without explanation. She knew that Pirates had no business raising kids, and there had to be a better left for the kid. Going back to land, she spent her pregnancy with a family out in the country, claiming to be “the victim of an abusive marriage”. Once her child was born – a son – Collete knew that she could never raise a child the way he needed to be raised. She left a note for the family asking them to care for her son, and not to ever mention his true mother. She left in the night and has since never returned.

It had been two years since she left Kessing’s ship and when she found it again, she discovered that one of the crew members, Godric Scarblade, had mutinied and Kessing was dead along with a vast majority of the former crew. Collete, though itching for a little vengeance, found it futile and joined up with another crew.

Becoming navigator on the Deathrunner under the Captainship of Maria, by coincidence Collete found that Kessing was very much alive… only without any memory of his former life! Deciding he was better of not knowing, Collete never brought their past up, but remained crew on the ship to keep an eye on him.

Meanwhile they discover that Maria was once a slave to Godric Scarblade, and by a little bit of luck and good timing had stolen his ship along with his mutinous crew. When he came seeking Maria for revenge he discovered Collete was on her crew… Collete of whom he very much wanted as his pet ever since he admired her on Kessing’s crew! He also discovered Kessing was still alive… The man he had grown to hate with severe jealousy!

During the escape (and coincidentally stealing some treasure) Maria was shot and killed. Collete became the new captain of the Deathrunner. Now Collete is mixed between keeping Kessing away from Godric, or finally helping him regain his memories and getting some good old fashioned vengeance.

Inabilities: Chit Chat, and Small Talk. She is never up in the latest gossip, nor does she know much about useless facts… She tends to draw a blank in conversations and tries to avoid them when possible.
Fears: Darkness, Deep Water, Prolonged Physical Contact. These fears have much to do with tragic and frightening events of her past, and they often give her trouble at the most inopportune times.
General Personality: Quiet, polite, reserved, secretive, mysterious. The world sees Autumn as a just another lady of the courts. She does what she must to be accepted by her peers, and tries to keep a good emotional distance from people.
Inner Personality: Autumn’s true self is hidden behind a huge barrier, and would no doubt surprise most people. She tends to be mischievous, strong-willed, and even charismatic on the rare occasions anyone can catch a glimpse. The only other still alive that has seen at least a part Autumn’s “true self” would be her mother-in-law, Anastasia. Unfortunately this is a must with the woman’s radical, sometimes cruel attitude towards her son’s widowed wife. Autumn will do what she must to survive, even if it means molding herself to situations. Breaking here out of her “shell” would be difficult, as she doesn’t really trust anyone. Even with those that prove to be allies, she still holds them at a distance.
Fondest Memory: Autumn barely remembers her life as child, but does having fleeting memories of songs her mother would sing to her.
Biggest Regret:
Secret: Autumn has a talent with that camera of hers. Pretty pictures weren’t the only things she can capture on film. She also has a knack for finding supernatural beings through the lens of her camera. This includes showing the “real face” of beings and things. Whether this is ‘her’ power or the ‘camera’ is unknown.

SPECIALTY CHARACTERISTICS

Special Items: Camera & accompanied equipment. It’s large and bulky as most camera’s of the day are, so she general doesn’t take it from her home unless for some special occasion.
Magics: She can capture supernatural elements on film with her camera.

HISTORIC BACKGROUND

General History: Autumn grew up as in a middle class family in Hungary. She had a relatively normal childhood nothing out of the ordinary. She eventually picked up an interest in Photography. When she reached her later teen years, her father received an offer from a Baron. If he could marry his daughter, he’d make sure the family was well taken care of for the rest of their lives. He agree’d though Autumn did not. But she knew her duty, and had no choice in the matter. She married the Baron a few weeks later. (insert parents dying)

(insert brief history about Marriage to Lorant.) The marriage was strained, but Autumn dealt with it as she could. The castle was cold, empty, and generally lonely. Her husband spent most of his time traveling the world, leaving Autumn to entertain herself.

(Lorant’s death) The only person she had left was her senile old mother-in-law, Anstasia Riktophen. Whom half the time is either trying to poison her food or hire various people to kill her daughter-in-law. Why she says? She’s really not sure herself, but Anastasia is technically the only family she has left.. despite how evil she is.

Present Life: Finding life in the Baron’s castle dark and lonely, (not to mention dangerous), Autumn and Anastasia Riktophen have moved into a nice home in London to be closer to the courts and aristocratic families of the time. Autumn spends her days avoiding Anastasia’s many temper tantrums by talking as many walks as possible and socializing amongst “friends”.

Special Historic Notes:
– Marriage to the Baron Lorant Riktophen.
– Lorant’s Death.
– Discovery her ‘talent’ with her photography.

Family: Parents: Ivory and Darius Kristof.

PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

Height: 5’6″
Hair: Auburn Red
Eyes: Dark Brown
General Appearance: Kris’s hair is long, but she usually keeps it tied back, or underneath her worn-out old hat. It’s sturdy denim, and has a long life ahead of it, but the real reason she wears it is because it was a gift from her late granddad. Aside from that, Kris does not dress very impressively, and is happy wearing t-shirts and jeans, along with the occasional jacket.
Strengths: Seeing as she’s a magnet for trouble, her friend Trevor has made sure to keep Kris well trained in self defense moves.
Weaknesses: Kris has a fast mouth and a bad habit of saying just the right thing to tick a person off, especially people she isn’t fond of.

MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

Allies: Trevor!
Enemies: Um… what enemies? Oh. THOSE enemies.
Current Purpose: Reluctantly staying in England to learn more about her family history, and finishing out collage.
Talents: Photography. Kris also fancies herself a good dancer.
Inabilities: Kris does not like keeping secrets, and her “gift” is also her biggest regret. She wants desperately to tell somebody about it, (other than neurotic Trevor) but doesn’t trust anyone to think they won’t laugh at her, despite her proof.
Fears: Snowstorms, sandstorms, being locked in closets? She has a great fear of tight inclosed places, or just plain old being buried alive.
General Personality: Because she travels a lot, Kris is very social, and isn’t afraid to simply walk up to somebody and start a conversation about the scenery, or the weather or whatnot. She also speaks several languages, including German, French, Italian, Russian, a smattering of Chinese, and some Spanish. She has a very close attachment to her camera, and protects it with her life.
Inner Personality: Kris is very practical at heart, and loves life on the road. Ever since she was a little girl, though, she was able to see ghosts through the lens of a camera. At first she was terrified, and refused to even look at a camera, but as time went on, she came to accept her gift, and now sees it as a wonderful incentive to travel the world and take pictures. She has ghostly photos from almost every place on Earth, but rarely shows them to people.
Fondest Memory: A dream she had about her late granddad. She was able to tell him all the things she had always wanted to say to him after he died, but never got the chance to while he was living. Kris feels that her grandfather still watches her today and keeps her safe.
Biggest Regret: Kris has no real fondness for her gift of sight. The gift has run in the Riktophen line (her mother’s side of the family) for generations. When her mother realized Kris had the gift too, she was instantly determined that her daughter learn everything she can about their family history. Especially since she was named after her ancestor Autumn Riktophen, whose story has enchanted her mother so.
Secret:

SPECIALTY CHARACTERISTICS

Special Items: Camera and all its equipment. She ALWAYS has a camera with her, even if it’s the little “one time use” pocket cameras.
Magics: The gift of unnatural sight. Through her camera lens and sometimes without, Kris can see past any aura or illusion of being has up straight to their “true” form.

HISTORIC BACKGROUND

General History: Kris was born on November 14th, to a pair of wonderful parents, if not a wee bit strange. Her mother, Ivory, was a descendant of the Riktophen line. Her father Darius Kristof, a historian from Europe. Ivory was enchanted with the story of Autumn Riktophen, and was so pleased when her own daughter was born on their ancestor’s birthday that she gave her that namesake. From early on, Kris had a very close connection with her family, especially her granddad, Roger. He affectionately called her Lil Kristof or “Kris” so often that the namesake seemed to stick.

When Kris was six years old, though, Roger died of a terminal illness. At his funeral, Kris asked her mother if she could take a picture of the church that the services were being held at. When they were developed, Kris found her granddad standing outside the church in the picture.

Nobody was able to explain the weird phenomenon, but the most commonly accepted theory was that obviously, Roger’s ghost had shown up in the photograph. Kris was very proud of the picture, and she hung it up on her wall. As time went on, more ghosts began appearing in her pictures, and Kris’s joy quickly turned into fear.

Until she was twelve years old, Kris refused to touch another camera. It was around that time, though, that Roger appeared to her in a dream, and comforted her worries. He told her that this was a very special gift she had been given, and she should be proud of it. With Roger’s words reassuring her, Kris began taking pictures for her junior high and high school’s newspaper, and eventually decided on Photojournalism as her major in college.

Of course, being a rebellious youth, the more Ivory pushed Kris to learn more about her ancestry and the history about her gift, the more Kris wanted it to go away. Her mother’s enthusiasm and constant prodding bothered her more than any of the ghosts in her pictures did. She constantly curses her namesake, and the weird circumstances that came along with it. Often wishing she could’ve been born to a more normal family.

Present Life: Finally giving in to her mother’s constant requests, Kris has moved to London to complete her last year of collage and learn a little more about her history.

HISTORIC BACKGROUND

General History:

Anastasia Riktophen is a very well known, distinguished member of society life. Though most people consider her as a friend purely for social reasons. The rumor going around states that in her younger days, she was a “loose” woman, often seeing many men… but those men always seemed to make mysterious disappearances soon after! Even her first and only husband, the Baron Riktophen, met a strange, horrible death, when his body was found burned, and bones broken in several places…

Anastasia had only one child, a son being Lorent Riktophen, who she smothered with affection and adored beyond anyone’s comprehension. When he chose a woman to be his bride, (Autumn), she despised her, plotting her death every chance she could… However, killing the woman would have broken her poor son’s heart, so she could merely be hateful and make her life hell.

The new Baron, as invincible as he seemed, eventually ended up dying of a very bad illness… After the death of her husband, Autumn took control of all estates, and caring for Anastasia, despite the women’s obvious hatred. Since then Anastasia has made many many an effort to get rid of her daughter-in-law, but never doing the more dirty work herself. When her simple plots, like poisons, and old dangerous falls failed, she would hire someone to try something else on a more grander scale, like assassins and general thugs.

Unfortunately Autumn seems to be just as crafty as she is, always being able to escape harm, or unknowingly avoid it. Autumn is well aware of Anastasia’s attempt on her life, but she is still unaware of the extend of her skills…

The Riktophen family come from a long line of just plain evil people. Anastasia is no exception. In her younger days, she prayed on young men for their blood and life force. She married the Baron Riktophen simply for the power and history of his family, and as all of men men do… he died a horrible death at her hands. The only man in her life she ever cared for was her son, Lorant, who’s attention was taken from her by that wench of a woman…

When he died, she went senile.. more so than her usual self. She was desperate to bring her son back, and using the greatest of her powers she called the spirit of Lilith and used her body as a shell. Thus, Lilith consumed her body being ‘reborn’ into the human world… Lilith seemed to have similar goals, also wanting her own son reborn… Lorant Riktophen was to be the shell for Azazel’s return…

Present Life: Plans in motion, her son will soon be reborn. “Their” plans of destruction will be realized!
