[Nyka location] The Great Infirmary

Postby Liar on December 29th, 2011, 11:48 pm


Considering the rather violent nature of its residents, Nyka’s Great Infirmary is constantly busy. Though disease is certainly not uncommon, most healers are better trained by experience to handle broken bones and flesh wounds. Admitting any individual without question, the healers are incredibly knowledgeable and often seem unnervingly indifferent. Most share the philosophy that medicine is as much a science as a service, and most Nykan patients are accustomed to, or even respect, this attitude.

While some of the Infirmary’s workers are marked by Rak’keli, they are sure to make a display of their mutual loyalties to the Celestials. Every room and hall contains an altar to one or all of them, though they are not the mess of banners and offerings that litter homes and streets. All items are kept in neat stacks between rose petals and other scented things, meant to drown out the odors of blood and disease before the healers manage to clean it up.

The inside of the Infirmary is kept as flawlessly clean as mortally possible, so as to account for all variables in any experiment. Even the main hall, where prospective patients wait to be shown a private room, follows this theme. The back rooms of the first floor are where the bulk of treatment occurs, though there are some rooms on the second floor, between offices, for special cases. Surgery chambers are all underground, to hide the noise.

NPCs :
ImageName: Sakhya Bhiska
Age: 46
Position: Head of Medicine
Considering his patients are nearly always terminal, Sakhya’s skill in healing is debatable. As a rule, he never uses herbal or alcoholic sedation, for his interests lie in the mechanism of pain and his methods would never be forgiven by someone who could live to remember them. Even to the oldest of healers around him, his smile is just as mythical. Not to be bothered with the complaints of his patients, he is without tact or embellishment in all manner of social dealings. Whatever his reputation, his passion for research is certain, manifest in the sheer amount of time he spends experimenting. It is this dedication that inspired the last Head of Medicine to promote him, though some argue that his predecessor was out of his mind, by then.
Skills: Medicine 62, Intimidation 28, Socialization 5

ImageName: Thera ‘Iron Touch’ Vasta
Age: 36
Position: Healer
While Sakhya spends his time downstairs, Thera has taken unofficial command of the Infirmary and the details of its running. Only when Bhiska is present is her authority overruled, but that only happens on rare occasions. She is efficient above all else, and does not like to waste her time explaining her methods or diagnoses. She demands similar competence from all other healers, and will not suffer their mistakes for long: if she sees something she does not think is correct, she will not hesitate to step in and remedy it. Her position allows her to take her pick of the cases presented to the Infirmary on any given day, and she is as prideful as she is pragmatic. Though she severely lacks the empathy desired by her patients, anyone that is assigned to her is almost guaranteed their life.
Skills: Medicine 55, Leadership 52, Organization 49, Intimidation 27
Gnosis: 1 mark of Rak'keli
