Behind the Waterfall (BtW) is Riverfalls Development and Contest Forum. Designed to support the IC forum in an OOC way, BtW contains The Suggestion Box, all Riverfall's design contests, the Perk Center, and a place for Rivarians - regardless of whether they are storytellers or not - to work on any kind of Riverfall Project they might need. BtW also contains all the discussion threads Rivarians need to support the RP in their city.

❖ The Leadership ❖


 
Nivar Chivan
Image
Name: Nivar/Teval Chivan
Race: Akalak
DoB: 292 AV (220 YO)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Leader of Riverfall
Skills: Leadership: 89, Rhetoric: 59, Negotiation: 53, Weapon (Lakan): 95, Anthropology: 34
Gnosis: 3 Wysar, 2 Akajia

Nevar and Teval Chivan are unparalleled orators that are able to truly inspire the masses. They never seems to lose their calm while speaking, though the few that know them personally are aware of their great nervousness at the activity. Many of the mannerisms that others attribute to mindless habits are actually spawned from anxiety. Nevar's other half is rarely seen, and none in the recent past could even recall seeing him. It is often speculated that the two have reached a state of unparalleled actualization and have essentially merged into the same entity. He has a scar along his entire right shoulder both front and back. It is a bite from one of the great wyrms of the plains. He is the only person to ever fight a great wyrm and survive. To date, no one has ever killed one of the great wyrms of the Cyphrus Plains. Rumor claims there are seven of them. Nevar is the first son of Cauldric Chivan, founder of Riverfall (now dead). Nevar has two brothers, Baldic ( 200 yrs old, 6'7" 245 lbs. runs Sattui Vineyard) and Typhus (187 yrs old, 6'11" 275 lbs, runs Coalinga Gem Mines).

 
Sava Chivan
Image
Name: Sava Chivan
Race: Konti
DoB: 413 AV (100 YO)
PoB: Mura
Title: Wife of Nivar and Teval
Skills: Leadership 79, Diplomacy 76, Business Management 65, Psychology 62, Weapon (Suvai) 51
Gnosis: Avalis 3

Sava was called to Riverfall almost the moment she came of age. Arriving in the city she took one look at Nivar and knew he was her destiny. So many of her sisters were moving between Riverfall and Mura that it only made sense that Riverfall's leadership had a mate that understood her people and could help guide him in dealing with their sister city so far to the northeast. Sava is rarely out and about, but when she is needed she seems to appear. And interestingly enough, her Konti Gift is directly associated with her Konti Sisters. Sava has the ability to sense distress in a Konti and know what is causing the distress and where the Konti is that needs her help. This Konti Distress beacon built within her acts in a five mile capacity and only careful shielding has been able to dampen it. Of course, unbeknownst to Sava, the Oathmaster has - since her arrival - made drastic shields around the Oathmasters Tower designed to lock in strong emotions and distress.


Moderator Notes: Nivar, Teval and Sava get along well. They are very loyal to each other and are approachable during office hours. Sava always has time to talk to Konti in need within the city, though she also expands out her influence and awareness to help women in general. Nivar and Teval have a remarkable bond and rarely switch personalities but seem to be blended almost integrally which is a mental state most Akalak could envy.

❖ City Officials & Religious Figures ❖

 
Wind Lavniar
Image
Name: Wind Lav'niar
Race: Kelvic (Sea Eagle)
DoB: 510 AV
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Priestess of Qalaya
Skills: Writing, Calligraphy, Composition
Gnosis: 3 Marks Qalaya

Wind was called to her profession. Being kelvic never stopped her. She roosts in an enormous rooftop nest above the square and can be often found dancing on the wind above Riverfall when her services are not needed. However, with her sharp eyes and discerning taste she always manages to notice when someone is in need of her help or perhaps some comforting words from a priestess of Qalaya. Wind is the second generation of Qalaya priestess to guard the square and keep it clean. Her mother was also a priestess who fell for a priest of Zulrav. Wind was bound to be born a bird kelvic when she started to grow abnormally fast and her parents realized she was kelvic. Her mother, Lavas, passed during the spring djed storm trying to protect the statue of Qalaya from damage.

 
Feolan
Image
Name: Feolan
Race: Drykas
DoB: Spring 495 AV
PoB: Endrykas
Title: Pathwarden of the Western Tunnels
Skills: 46 Bladed staff, 15 Shuriken, 29 Navigation, 42 Running
Gnosis: None

Like all members of the Underwatch, Feolan has no surname nor claims ties to any clan or pavilion. Recently reaching his one-year mark, he knows the passages around the Shadowhall rather well, if he does say so himself. With a bit of an ego, he frowns on "abovers" but tolerates them when needed. He is always the first to approach a traveler, and if the situation his dire he will fetch his superior.


 
Sunder
Image
Name: Sunder
Race: Drykas
DoB: Winter 492 AV
PoB: Endrykas
Title: Pathguardian of the Western Tunnels
Skills: 67 Mace, 21 Dagger, 39 Wilderness Survival, 46 Running, 20 Observation
Gnosis: 1 mark of Semele

If Feolan cannot handle whatever situation arises then he will find Sunder. Born of a slave and a full Drykas, Sunder spent his life on the surface struggling to make his own status within his pavilion. Years passed without his effort bearing any real fruit, and his constant humiliation eventually convinced him to give up. He took to the Underpass, forsaking not only his last name but his first one as well and taking the name Sunder. His time underground has hardened him, and he will suffer no fool gladly. If his time it wasted, he may very well kill the messenger in annoyance.


 
Tensval and Jiensen
Image
Name: Tensval
Race: Akalak
DoB: Fall 389 AV
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Pathmaster of the Western Tunnels
Skills: 94 Symenestran lash, 31 Shortsword, 40 Navigation, 38 Wilderness Survival, 52 Leadership
Gnosis: 1 mark of Semele, 1 mark of Akajia

One of the few Akalak to join the Underwatch and the only one that currently survives, Tensval's presence is imposing. He knows the world beneath like he knows his own body, and he knows his own body extremely well. Over a decade of battling the threats beneath has made him a powerful man as is reflected in his well-built physique. His gaze is one of utter and complete calm, which can be more unnerving than anger. In this world, his word is law and he lives that responsibility as naturally as he eats or breathes. It is rare for him to personally be needed; allowing the population of Riverfall to take shelter in his tunnels was the first, and it would take nothing less of a disaster to earn a second audience with him.

His other half, Jiensen, rarely if ever shows himself. Weak-willed, lethargic and greedy, it is always easy to spot him in place of his stronger and more disciplined personality. Centered around personal pleasure and a slave to his own wants and needs, his lack of mental strength make him rather easy for Tensval to suppress.


 
Malin and Malix
Image
Name: Malin & Malix
Race: Akalak
DoB: 308 AV (204 yo)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Labor & Citizenship Administrator
Skills: Accounting 59; Writing 44; Business 39; Spear 38
Gnosis: None

Malin and Malix are second generation Labor and Citizenship Officers. They administrate all the dealings in the citizenship and labor aid office, keep track of its records and administer the tests for citizenship with the weapon type spear. Malin and Malix are both fair, organized and polite. They enjoy the company of others and like meeting new people.

Malin loves to be social while Malix loves to talk business. Being a well adjusted Akalak, the two men often switch mid sentence.


 
Ivory Snowsong
Image
Name: Ivory Snowsong
Race: Vantha
DoB: 479 AV (33)
PoB: Avanthal
Title: Watchtower Guardian or "The Guardian"
Skills: Storytelling 72, Carving 54, Singing 34, Reimancy 35 (Air, Earth)
Gnosis: Priskil 3 - Priestess

Ivory appeared, one lonely winter day, out of the brilliant light of the watchtower when it activated all on its own. At fourteen, the strange Vantha girl was considered a curiosity to the local Akalaks but no one really did or said anything negatively when she proceeded to move into the ruin of the tower and fix it up. One thing was for certain, Albino and Priestess of Priskil, Ivory Snowsong bothers no one and no one bothers her. Occasionally she takes visitors and serves them tea, but otherwise it is just her and a kelvic companion that occupy the Tower.

Occasionally she can be talked into activating the Tower, but she does not guarantee safe passage in any way shape or form.


 
Lakkargan and Rorgril
Image
Name: Lakkargan/Rorgril
Race: Akalak
DoB: 262 AV (150 YO)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: High Priest of Wysar
Skills: Unarmed Combat 83, Lakan 80, Daggers 78, Longbow 65, Leadership 55, Dual Wielding 48
Gnosis: 3 Wysar

Lakkargan and Rorgril are the first born in a set of twin High Priests of Wysar. At the prepubescent age of twenty, the twins severely lacked any sense of discipline or structure. The four personalities were simply too much for their father to raise and he turned over their care to the Father of all Akalak, Wysar. Lakkargan and Rorgril are the more gregarious pair in this wily set of twins males. They are most comfortable with the more physical aspects of Akalak life like hunting and combat, be it armed or unarmed.


 
Kroskmin and Scarklan
Image
Name: Kroskmin/Scarklan
Race: Akalak
DoB: 262 AV (150 YO)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: High Priest of Wysar
Skills: Reimancy 82, Shielding 79, Glyphing 76, Philosophy 68, Blind Fighting 50, Unarmed Combat 49
Gnosis: 3 Wysar

Kroskmin and Scarklan are the second born in a set of twin High Priests of Wysar. At the prepubescent age of twenty, the twins severely lacked any sense of discipline or structure. The four personalities were simply too much for their father to raise and he turned over their care to the Father of all Akalak, Wysar. Kroskmin and Scarklan chose to embrace the wellspring of Djed within and harness it toward their own use. They spend much of their time thinking on the deeper religious and secular philosophies, but still keep a physical balance with constant practice in unarmed combat and blind fighting.


 
Salana and Annaka
Image
Name: Salana/Annaka
Race: Akontak
DoB: 200 AV (112 YO)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: High Priestess of Akajia
Skills: Interrogation 83, Persuasion 80, Rhetoric 55, Investigation 50, Stealth 48, Leadership 26
Gnosis: 3 Akajia

The High Priestess of Akajia is a strong devotee to her Mistress and takes her duties very seriously. As an honored Akontak, she became an acolyte of Akajia from an early age. Her personality is similar in traits to the great Goddess herself. Although her manner is honest and forthright, she creates more questions than she answers.
Salana is a persuasive woman with a silver tongue, while her sister Annaka is a more direct and commanding personality. Together they make an ideal High Priestess for they can not only discover secrets, but keep them for eternity as well.
Their Konti mother gave them the gift to Know truth from lies.


 
Osdyn and Alvikin
Image
Name: Osdyn/Alvikin
Race: Akalak
DoB: 442 AV (70 YO)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Dreamguide & High Priest
Skills: Dream Interpretation 78, Tarot 75, Unarmed 65, Glittern 45
Gnosis: Nysel +3, Avalis +2

Osdyn was a rare marked by birth Dreamwalker. He was walking Chavi before he could actually walk. And as such he understood the nature of his more suppressed side and so grew to age being a great deal more balanced than most. Osdyn and Alvikin work as one, probably one of the most united duo's in Riverfall outside of the Elder and Exalted Members who have had far more time in the world than he himself has to balance out their personalities. Osdyn likes to think things through where Alvikin is a man of action. Both routinely keep each other out of trouble and do a great deal for the community, mostly in the shadows, to help out youth facing difficult transitions into adulthood or facing families that can't give them as much as they need attention wise. Nysel's tower is in the shadow of the falls with many parks in close walking proximity. The Akalak pair often are found therein, enjoying the scenery or teaching a class to one or more or their students on faith or playing his Glittern.


 
Lera
Image
Name: Lera
Race: Eypharian
DoB: 477 AV (35)
PoB: Endrykas
Title: The Dark Lady, Priestess of Nysel
Skills: Hunting 43, weaving 40, Wilderness Survival 26, Longbow 15
Gnosis: Nysel +3, Akajia +1

Lera has had a hard life. Born among captured Eypharians in a zith colony, she escaped as a child to Endrykas where she was raised by the Ruby Clan in the Savantha Pavilion where Akajia marked her as a child. Later, she was captured by Akalak's when her hunting party was separated and she was left for dead with an injured horse. She came to live in Riverfall at that point under a Nakivak status and was able to work off her debt with two children before she earned her third mark and dedicated herself to Nysel's faith. Marked by Nysel and Akajia from an early age, Lera has an insatiable curiosity for nightmares, the macabre, and all things interesting and extraordinary.

Lera is not an easy person to talk too but her expertise on the dark side of dreams is phenomenal.


 
Ackran
Image
Name: Ackran
Race: Drykas
DoB: 481 AV (31 YO)
PoB: Endrykas
Title: Tower Master & Stormwarden Priest
Skills: Longbow 61, Dancing 55, Running 41, Aurisitics 25
Gnosis: 3 Marks Zulrav

Ackran was born to the Emerald Clan in Endrykas. Born with one Zulrav mark, he earned his second on the Sea of Grass and his third in Riverfall when he felt called to the city to protect it against storms. Dancing the storms, as Ackran calls it, creates the vast majority of stormgems sold at the tower.

Ackran is a very friendly approachable person. He's often seen at Coils and is a frequent contributor to anything to further the Drykas in Riverfall. He never goes anywhere without breezes following him, riffling his hair, and whispering to him about what they know. When he's in a dark mood, the winds rage about him. And while he can command them with a firm hand, he does not. He considers the winds free creatures and lets them rage as they will unless they are being destructive.


 
Shoiss
Image
Name: Shoiss
Race: Konti
DoB: 459 AV (53 YO)
PoB: Mura
Title: Stormwarden & Healer
Skills: Medicine 62, Flute 51, Unarmed 42, Flux 33
Gnosis: Zulrav 2 Marks, Avalis 2 Marks, Rak'keli 2

Shoiss was Called to Zulrav and later to Riverfall to help Ackran craft the tower. She has dedicated her life to Zulrav and is considered a weather seer of the highest form because her Konti gift involves sensing what will come weatherwise long before her Stormwarden powers can tell her. Due to this unique ability, the Konti is very valuable to Riverfall and is one of the main reasons the city is usually forewarned about storms coming.

 
Belea
Image
Name: Belea Tana’ti
Race: Charoda
DoB: 90th of Spring
PoB: Charbosi
Title: High Priestess
Skills: Leadership 68, Coral Manipulation 50, Riding: Seahorse 41, Weapon: Spear 30,
Gnosis: 3 Oceanus
Additional Info: One of the very few Charoda in the city, she is considered a passionate, but stern woman, who speaks almost too often of Laviku’s blessings. It is an understandable devotion, stemming from events that led her to priesthood: As a child, after straying too far from home while gathering seaweed, she encountered a massive Kalvikasi sleeping in a trench. Being a curious child, she swam closer instead of fleeing, and accidentally woke the great sea-beast. Startled awake, it turned on her, and though it had no intention of harming her, she felt certain that she would die in that moment. In a flourish of seaweed and cool water, Laviku appeared before her and told her not to be afraid. He took the terrified girl’s hand, and together they faced the Kalvikasi, who, now calmed by the sea god’s presence, slowly turned his enormous body and swam away.

She earned her first mark that day, and has devoted her life to Laviku ever since. In Riverfall, she is always on hand for festivals celebrating Laviku, though is always disappointed that more is not done to celebrate his name. She, like most of her race, abhors violence, but maintains competency with a spear to retain her Riverfall citizenship.

 
Tuvos and Suvos Jerusc
Image
Name: Tuvos Jerusc
Race: Akalak
DoB: The 25th of the Winter Season, 119 AV
PoB: Riverfall, Cyphrus Region
Title: Undanas, The Oathmaster
Skills: Metalsmithing 84; Medicine 67; Interrogation 48; Observation 45
Additional Info: Tuvos Jerusc can be seen as either the wizened, compassionate elder or the ruthless dictator. The aforementioned is the kind half, while Sovus is is seen as merciless. More often than not Nakivak or others will deal with Tuvos, as he is the dominant half. Despite this, he has no stomach for inflicting harm or displeasure upon others, and has to cede to Sovus whenever such an act is needed. The darker side of the Undanas is exacting and unwavering in his interpretation of what needs done. If a Nakivak runs away, Urvinisic shall hunt her down. When a crime is committed, they are thrown in the holding cells. There is no room for interpretation or compassion, the laws must be followed to the letter.

 
Kavalor Furat
Image
Name: Kavalor Furat
Race: Akalak
DoB: 172 A.V.
PoB: Riverfall
Title: The Warren's Keeper
Skills: Organization 93, Food Preservation 82, Masonry 64, Camouflage 54

Kavalor is the first and only Keeper that has ever watched over The Warren. He feels a strong connection to the structure (especially since he also worked on it during its last decade of construction) and often grumbles about how its importance is too frequently overlooked. His primary personality is paranoid and over-cautious, and has been known to establish strange rules for his assistants to follow. He is the only person in Riverfall (besides the Council of Elders) who knows every single nook, cranny, chamber, and secret passage in The Warren, however, and his extraordinary caution makes him a tremendous secret keeper.

❖ The Kuvay'Nas ❖




 
Commander Nodorus and Kavinal
Image
Name: Nodorus/Kavinal
Race: Akalak
DoB: 357 AV (155 YO)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Commander of the Kuvay'Nas
Skills: Hunting 83, Longbow 55, Long Knives 80, Dual Weilding 50, Leadership 48, Riding 25
Gnosis: 3 Wysar, 2 Akajia

Info Forthcoming

 
Taskel and Tarkan Salgrinas
Image
Name: Taskel/Tarkan Salgrinas
Race: Akalak
DoB: 81st of Summer, 475 (Age 37)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Kuvay'Nas Guard
Skills: Weapon: Lakan 63, Observation 60, Bodybuilding 45, Socialization 38
Gnosis: None
Additional Info: Taskel considers himself a red-blooded son of Riverfall, and loves the city with a deep pride. Raised an average life by an average family, we went into the duty of protecting his city. His mother was a Konti Nakivak, and though he remains in close touch with her, but does not stay close with his siblings. He has yet to sire a child, to his family's chagrin, but professes he simply hasn't found the 'right one'. He's a romantic at heart, and though he has promised his father that he'll take a Nakivak by age 45, he hopes he'll find a wife before that becomes necessary.

He is known for being a little too fond of drinks after work, and a little cocky about his looks, but does not let either interfere with his work. He is not the most intimidating guard in the city, nor is he the loosest, but falls in the average area of common men doing their duty. Tarkan takes duty much more seriously, but rarely gets a chance to do more than patrol when it's his turn to be at the forefront.

❖ Business Owners ❖


 
Ivanu and Revar
Image
Name: Ivanu & Revar
Race: Akalak
DoB: 369 AV (143 yo)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Head Zookeeper
Skills: Animal Husbandry 85, Carpentry 28, Hunting 78, Zookeeping 75, Construction 49, Leadership 64, Organization 32. Lasso 49, Crossbow 68
Gnosis: Caihya 1, Wysar 3

Ivanu and Revar have always been animal husbandry people who have kept large stables of all sorts of exotic creatures. Hired by Nevar Chivan, the Akalak runs a tight ship in terms of keeping his monsters and animals safe and making sure the visitors have a good time.

Ivanu and Revar do all the hiring of staff. Their office is located near the entrance of the Menagerie.

 
Seafoam Kandu
Image
Name: Seafoam Kandu
Race: Charoda
DoB: 471 AV (41 yo)
PoB: Riverfall's Bay
Title: Head Aquarist
Skills: Animal Husbandry 75, Aquaculture 92, Fishing 71, Painting 32, Leadership 94, Organization 22, Spear 71
Gnosis: Zintila 3, Laviku 2

Seafoam, as she likes to be called, was hired by Nevar to establish the Aquarium. She is uniquely suited due to her priestess status with Zintila and her ability to make skyglass. Invaluable to both Menageries has resulted in her leadership of the Aquatic portion. Friendly, enthusiastic, and deeply caring of her charges, Seafoam gets the job done and has made a remarkable leader of the underwater Menagerie.
 
Aena and Korva
ImageName: Aena and Korva
Race: Akontak
DoB: 150 years old, born in the spring of 363
PoB: Mura
Title: Owner of the White Crane
Skills: 90 fortune-telling, 61 business, 47 rhetoric, 30 silversmithing, 11 storytelling
Gnosis: 1 mark of Avalis, 1 mark of Akajia
Additional Info: Though they are getting up there in their years, both Aena and Korva are as sharp as ever. Aena is the owner of the White Crane and has kept it running for a very long time, though talking with her can be immensely confusing. She finds everything funny except jokes, and almost all of her conversations are interrupted by her exploding into laughter at completely normal things, such as a certain pattern in the wood or a bit of string hanging of someone’s coat. Some say that it is because she sees all futures and that such sight has driven her mad, for she certainly has skill in the area, but she certainly wouldn’t verify the claim.

Korva is similar to Aena in many ways, though she is much more sinister in how she amuses herself. A merciless trickster, Korva absolutely loves the confusion of others and will go out of her way to visit such a state upon those she interacts with.


 
Narista Chevan
Image
Name: Narista Chevan
Race: Human
DoB: 489 (23 YO)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Gallery Manager
Skills: Business 62, Interior Design 54, Drawing 42, Painting 38, Calligraphy 15
Gnosis: None

Narista, daughter of one of Chevan's Nakivaks, has long since been adopted into the Chevan family and enjoys the privileges that being a daughter of the Chevan Family brings her. Being born artistic, Narista is an interior designer with a wide artistic streak. Friendly and approachable, Narista is a bubbly woman that spends a great deal of time seeking out new artistic talent and working with the students in the Valkalah Institute's Art Center.

 
Maltar and Ruvan
Image

DoB: 452 (60 Yo)
PoB: Mura
Title: Hostess/Proprietor
Skills: Hostessing 65, Cooking 71, Cleaning 25
Gnosis: 1 Avalis

Nati was born in Mura but called to Riverfall to open a house just for her fellow sisters so that they'd feel more comfortable in Riverfall away from their homes.

Keket and Kebrat Ximphar
Image
Name: Keket/Kebrat Ximphar
Race: Akalak
DoB: 22nd of Summer 340AV (Age 172)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Landlord
Skills: Musical Instrument: Flute 81, Musical Instrument: Cello 55, Cooking 32, Gardening 31, Weapon: Lakan 31, Socialization 30
Gnosis: 1 Audius
Additional Info: Keket was the creative, altruistic soul who had the inspiration to create Northwind Suites. While his brother handles all the unpleasantries of accounting and collecting rent, Keket keeps the place clean and looking good – as much as he can. He loves interacting with the tenants, and is almost always found either in the common room or the kitchen. He’ll often stop by an open door to inquire about the tenant’s music and inspiration, and is always happy to join up for a duet. Kebrat is less enjoyable, and is only truly happy when practicing their music. He is however, and important part of Keket’s creative process, and the pair have produced many musical pieces while working in harmony.

 
Levrad and Likend Ximphar

PoB: Riverfall
Title: Landlord
Skills: Musical Instrument: Violin 80, Musical Instrument: Trumpet 49, Leadership 35, Carpentry 32, Weapon: Lakan 31
Gnosis: 1 Audius
Additional Info: Levrad can come across as a very stern figure, and many are shocked to hear he and Keket are even related. While Keket had the inspiration to start Northwind, it was Levrad who had the discipline and planning to pull the idea together. While Keket keeps the place looking nice and full of tenants, Levrad keeps the books balanced and the repairs fixed. He rarely offers to join for a duet, but can be tempted on occasion. The extent of the social interaction he offers to tenants is a critique of sheet music, which is universally acknowledged as honest and entirely correct, but harsh. Likend and Kebrat get along better than Levrad and Keket do, and if the pair are playing together in the common room, a momentous and beautiful occurrence, Likend and Kebrat are usually behind it.


 
Tkana Vylisa
ImageName: T’kana Vylisa
Race: Konti
DoB: 2nd of Winter 390AV (Age 122)
PoB: Mura
Title: Owner
Skills: Organization 82, Philosophy 50, Anthropology 45, Copying 41, Weapon: Suvai 30
Gnosis: 1 Avalis
Additional Info: A quiet woman who prefers not to speak much, few in Riverfall know of her, and almost none know more than the few details she’s chosen to reveal about herself. She was born on Mura, and traveled to Riverfall in search of a mate. She’s borne three children by her husband, all of whom occasionally visit the Perch.

Her fascination with books and learning the odds and ends of everything began shortly after she arrived in Riverfall. After a fantastically dull stint working in the Riverfall library, she opened the Raven’s Perch at the suggestion of her husband, opening up her budding collection of books to the public. Public donations and grants from the Council have allowed her to expand the Perch’s selection into what it is today.

Any who frequent the Perch know to watch the subtleties of her actions, as she is very non-confrontational, but also very protective of her books. Her Konti gift is very specific, and allows her to see if someone actively wants to steal from her, which she takes advantage of by requiring her books be unlocked by her alone. On the rare occasion she encounters such an unscrupulous character, she makes up an excuse for not being able to get the book – such as needing to be cleaned, or the key not working. This is such a rare occasion that anyone around will immediately take notice and the person in question will be subtly shamed into leaving.
 
Linison and Hane

DoB: 312 AV, 200
PoB:Riverfall
Title: Land Lord of Baywatch Apartments
Skills: Management 50, Persuasion 50, Seduction 90, Unarmed Combat 60
Gnosis: 1 Ranuri

Linison is a thoughtful and patient individual with good business sense and a taste for wealth that he received early on in life. He did not wish to get a business approved by the council until he had exactly the kind of money to support and continue it and so he made his way working as a male companion for women, learning all he could of how to please them, and making quite a bit of money doing so. He saved and saved until and about 25 years ago set up the apartments which turn a pretty penny and never leave a tenant unsatisfied.

Hane is very similar to Linison in taste and demeanor, but is the carnal and visceral side of the more thoughtful Linison and it is said that one has to experience a night with each soul to truly experience all the Akalak has to offer, one of the reasons Linison and Hane were able to make the money they did, and Hane never lets Linison forget it.
 
Lodum and Hatrum Trecktak
Image Name: Lodum/Hatrum Trecktak
Race: Akalak
DoB: 57th of Autumn 455AV (Age 57)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Landlord
Skills: Hostessing 91, Reimancy 82, Plumbing 55, Weapon: Lakan 51, Leadership 45, Bodybuilding 43
Gnosis: N/A
Additional Info: While the faces of the maids and various servants may change, the face of Lodum and Hatrum are a constant for residents. He is very active in assuring residents are in complete comfort during their stay, and his strong, calm countenance of often enough to ease even the pickiest of residents. There is almost always an assistant at his side, chosen from the pool of maids and hand servants, which he is ready to reassign to a resident at any moment to solve a problem he cannot stay long enough to attend to.

Personally, he never intended to be a landlord – instead starting out at the Kuvay’Nas, where a knee injury forced him to take temporary leave and work at the Bluevein Apartments for a paycheck. Guests took to him so well, he retired permanently from the guard once his knee was healed, and over the years has worked his way up from manservant, to head of household duties, to superintendent, and finally to landlord once the previous one passed away. The hot springs in each room were his making – originally only one suite had access to a spring, and through his masterful Reimancy, he was able to redirect water from the Bluevein into the cliffs to supplement the supply of water, and then to create pools that accessed it in each room.

He’s sired a few children through Nakivaks, and never engages in improper activity with a guest. Hatrum often protests this, but otherwise acquiesces to Lodum’s dominance. Hatrum is much more in love with sumptuousness, and is the most vocal when the time comes around to redecorate.

Gnosis: Zulrav 2

Almost childlike in their joy, the pair worship Zulrav and coordinate at the Stormtower when they aren't building kites and holding festivals.

Kenneth is the brother who really enjoys flying kites while Rarmor is the one that really enjoys designing them. Both, however, will talk kites day in and day out if you let them. The Kite shop is always looking for help as well because more often than naught the brothers have to close it and put a sign on the door saying "Gone flying..."

Cara: Massage 61, Aromatherapy 52, Perfumery 25
Tara: Soapmaking 75, Candlemaking 66, Massage 45
Gnosis: None

The Twins have lived in Riverfall for the whole of their lives being the product of an advanced pregnancy of a Nakivak that was allowed to be carried to term. Once in the system, the twins were allowed to start their own business once they hit maturity and having trained most of their lives with healers in the art of anatomy, muscle structure, and how to relieve pain and fatigue, they opened their own massage center. They were able to pay off their debt to Riverfall without becoming Nakivaks themselves. This payoff was allowed partially due to the fact they are full human and while this can result in reproductive success, such conditions have a high mortality rate in mothers.


 
Picalum and Harplen Kanan

Race: Akalak
DoB: 478 (44 YO)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Head Shipwright
Skills: Shipwright 74, Carpentry 43, Business 38, Weapon: Trident 36
Gnosis: Laviku 1, Wysar 1

Picalum can't remember when he fell in love with the sea, but he can tell you when that love will waver; never. After passing the rite of passage, Picalum left Riverfall for Zeltiva where he studied Shipwrighting with the best teachers all over Mizahar. Once he felt he knew enough to benefit his home, he returned, and paid for a dock to be constructed for him. Wavemaster Shipwrighting had been established.


 
Nessela

PoB: Mura
Title: Spiritist and Owner
Skills: Spititism 85, Suvai 65, Maladiction 30, Weaponsmithing 20, Singing 15
Gnosis: 1 Dira, 2 Viratas

Nessela has been in Riverfall since a young age, born and then almost immediately called from Mura to caretake the spirits of Riverfall. She's kind, generous, and a little ruthless when necessary. Nessela is a realist and can be a generous teacher though she often withholds information from her teachings so students learn to think for themselves.

Nessela isn't in the best health recently and fears her death is coming upon her soon. She actively looks for an apprentice to replace her because she worries for the spirits in Riverfall if she were to depart for Leth's judgement and leave them without care.


 
Sumithal and Nakaris
Image Name: Sumithal/Nakaris
Race: Akalak
DoB: 33rd of Fall, 445AV (Age 67)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Jeweler
Skills: Jewelcrafting 89, Metalsmithing 74, Etching 55, Weapon (Lakan) 43
Gnosis: 1 Izentor
Additional Info: As a young Akalak, while many of his friends were bulking up and learning to fight with pure, brute strength, Sumithal found his abilities in quick, complex movements and technique. As a grown man, he may not be as large as other Akalaks, but his gifts lie in his hands. Lean arms taper down into long, dexterous hands and fingers, with neat nails and only lightly calloused palms. He returned to Riverfall in 501 from the trading posts of Sultros, where he studied the Isur, as closely as an outsider could, and brought his knowledge back to his homeland. Though he realizes his skills are nowhere near that of the Isur, what little knowledge he gleaned was valuable, and his diligence in learning caught the attention of Izurdin, who blessed him with a mark.

Sumithal is usually the personality displayed in front of customers, while Nakaris takes over during the work of crafting. Both halves have a deep appreciation of the beauty of gems and precious metals, though Sumithal loves to share his love with anyone who walks in, and Nakaris just wishes everyone would go away so they could concentrate on perfecting their work.

Fuffa and Furfur, his pet yowlwings, only allow their owner to stroke them, much to the disappointment of Arikamiss and many a customer.

Skills: Tattooing 81, Business 59, Drawing 57, Unarmed Combat 43, Teaching 41, Weapon: Lakan 38
Gnosis: None

Herrlock grew up with a quill in his hand, but he found his true calling in tattooing years ago. As a boy, he witnessed an Akalak being branded as a cerulean with the art form of tattoooing, and the rest can be considered history. Herrlock opened Riverfall Ink for use of the council to mark the Cerulean. But it didn't take long for Herrlock to notice the overall desire for tattoos from men and women all over the city. Riverfall Ink soon became a stop for visitors and residents to have art mark their skin. And Herrlock could not have been happier.

Hruthar, though not a bad person, finds it difficult to care for things that do not directly benefit him.

He handles all business transactions, though his incredibly blunt manner of interacting with others causes him to leave the actual socializing to his colleagues.

Gnosis: Ovek 1

Vin is a very self driven entrepreneur. When he first stepped foot in Riverfall he realized quickly that physically he could not best an Akalak nor have any respect earned from the race unless he did something that hadn't been done before. And pulling on the great traditions of the southern smokehouses, Vin decided to cater to the single males of Riverfall and provide a place for them to come and be served tobacco and spirits by lovely ladies and gentleman who would leave them to their drinking, smoking, and gaming.

Vin's Smokehouse was a smashing success. It quickly became the gathering place for Akalak and human males alike. Popular for its free-thinking environment and eye-candy waitresses, the Smokehouse is usually packed every evening until closing time.

He has a knack for find out information, as well as spreading rumors, sometimes real, and sometimes false. Tom is the eyes and ears of the Black Sun in Riverfall, though there are few who are aware of it.

Biography

Tom Volus was born into a family of shipwrights, and in his early years help his father build the fishing boats for the city of Ravok. He was not destined to be a shipwright like his father, however, and aspired to serve the Defiler in a more direct way. Tom's knack for bartering information first surfaced when he overheard a plot being formed by one merchant to ruin a rival merchant's reputation. Acting quickly, Tom went to the rival merchant and sold the information to him in exchange for a few gold mizas. From then on Tom realized his calling, and it wasn't long before he was selling information to the Black Sun itself.

Eventually one of the Acolyte's at the temple took an interest in the young man, and began educating him in the ways of Rhysol. A few years later he received his mark and was made an agent of the Black Sun. Tom was eventually sent to Riverfall to assist one of the Acolytes there who setting up a base of operations for their members in the city. Tom and the fellow agent worked together to open the Rat Hole, and eventually Tom was promoted and put in charge of the establishment himself. When Tom isn't at the tavern, he is out in the city learning what he can.

Personality

Tom is an amiable man, and always knows just what to say to get someone to talk to him. He has a knack for gathering information without outright interrogating a person, and people tend to trust him despite their better judgment. Or perhaps they know that as long as they have more coin than their rivals, Tom's lips will be sealed. Tom enjoys spreading rumors, whether they are true or not, and has been known to stir up trouble just to see what chaos comes of it.

Melanos and Ilavik are a dominating presence, often the first thing seen among the other aspiring body builders and athletes. Standing six and a half feet tall, the two can often be found instructing and encouraging the hopefuls found exercising in the Glory, as it is commonly known. Melanos has a calm and stoic disposition, often counseling those within the halls on their diet, routines and cautioning when to stretch and rest. Ilavik, on the other hand, is usually pushing that extra bit of effort out of every muscle of the trainees, be it through encouragement or intimidation. His booming voice can often be the thing that gets a body builder over the hump into a new weight class.

Melanos does any interviewing or assessments in his office, a simple room with an oversized desk and a few chairs. Ilavik constantly wants his brother out on the floor, pushing the Akalak to be their very best. Melanos respects this but has to constantly remind his dark brother that the Glory is also a business and must answer to the Council like everyone else.

Title: Owner and Hostess
Skills: Socialization 80, Business 75, Hostessing 58, Waitressing 55
Gnosis: Avalis 1

Korana was called to Riverfall and found her place opening and running The Almond Blossom. It has been speculated that before Korana put her mark on Alakak cuisine, that the culture as a whole was woefully stuck on meat and potatoes withe the occasional smattering of fruit and cheese. Korana changed that, introducing fine quality meals, excellent service, and an upper crust social scene that allows people to dine for the pleasure of dining not just to feed themselves.

Korana got a business loan from the Council, opened the Almond Blossom, and had it paid for within a single year. She is an inspiration to Konti and all foreigners about how immigrants to Riverfall can make their dreams come true.

Her Chef, Dolmar, seems somewhat infatuated with her. But much to the whole city's chagrin, everyone knows this fact but Korana. Dolmar puts up with her long hours, incredible demands for quality, and her micro scrutiny with a smile.

Skills: Meditation 85, Rhetoric 40, Singing 90, Teaching 80
Gnosis:

Missinar and Slint were the initial reason the Resort was created in the first place. They first found Silari in a drunken bout of rage after they had lost both of his legs in battle and were gently nursed back to mental health by the understanding and kindness of the patient Konti: After all, how can you claim that no one understands when your partner has the ability to feel your memories as if they were her own?

Once Missinar and Slint had recovered, all three individuals realized how much the city could use a place of rehabilitation in a place almost entirely comprised of warriors. Together they made an impassioned case to the Council of Ten who accepted and helped the Konti and Akalak build their sanctuary. Though the Resort is largely non-profit, donations comes from all over the city, even from citizens who have never stayed in the Resort themselves, and both Silari, Missinar, and Flint live in relative comfort as they aid those around them.

Missinar is a singer who is always there to uplift a fallen soul, loud and boisterous it is hard to be in a bad mood with the lively Akalak in your midst. Slint on the other hand is silent and reclusive, but does is part as well. He believes that calm mediation and control of the mind are the true elements to recovering from physical and mental trauma, and teaches in the meditation gardens every morning.

Silari is a calm and reserved Konti who runs the Fresh Star Resort with her Akalak partner: Missinar

Silari’s Konti gift allows her upon contact with another person to experience a brief flash of the memory that is most at the forefront of their mind at the time. By spending more time with an individual she can glean longer and more powerful sensations, which makes her ideal as a psychiatrist and confidant to healing Akalaks at the Resort.

Kind, and always concerned for her patients, Silari helps with the emotional side of recovery alongside her healers and is always there to listen or even experience a grueling moment of battle and to commiserate with her patients. Though she has little skill in medicine, most of the people inhabiting the resort employees and residents refer to her as ‘the doctor’.

Title: Owner/Madam
Skills: Seduction 82, Socialization 75, Leadership 52, Dance 34, Cosmetology 32
Gnosis: None
Additional Info: Silka is a beautiful woman who can make any man feel like the center of the world. She still speaks Arumenic, and will do so on occasion for an exotic appeal. Many of the lonely, wealthy men of Riverfall may claim to be in her confidence, but she is beholden to no man, and intends to stay that way for a while longer yet.

She inherited the Velvet Curtain in Spring 512, after the previous owner vanished in the Djed Storm. By that point, she was already the most accomplished woman on staff, and was happy to retire the life. You’ll never get her in one of the back rooms, but she does play hostess for a hefty price. She’s most often found in a gem-encrusted bustier, a gift from one of her regular, more wealthy clients. Her hair color changes daily, but she favors a shocking confection of pink curls.


 
Ailodes
Image
Name: Ailodes
Race: Human
DoB: 478 (34 YO)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Proprietor - Head Gardener
Skills: Gardening 78; Philtering 45; Poison 39; Medicine 30
Gnosis: Avalis 3

While Vytoria has long since died, her granddaughter continues to run the conservatory in her stead. Though where her ancestor was a bold leader hoping to establish a resource for the healers of Cyphrus, Ailodes just wants to be with her plants. Seemingly more interested in the plant life than the cause of healing wounded Akalak, the girl is quite taciturn even if skilled. In her seven years as head gardener (after her mother died), Ailodes has turned the conservatory into a healer's number one resource into a true haven for plants; though it still caters well to disciples of Rak'keli. Ailodes does not handle public situations well, but she is still rather dependent on her friends in the conservatory. As such, she is tentative to hire new faces, but has recently needed to due to an accidental poisoning.


 
Devan and Volas Rockward
Image
Name: Devan (Volas) Rockward
Race: Akalak
DoB: 298 AV (214 YO)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Orchard Manager
Skills: Farming 82, Herbalism 75, Arborism 92.
Gnosis: 2 Bala Marks

The Orchards are something of a group project having no real manager but a series of Council Decrees that keep them running. However, Devan feels he was born to tend trees and does so with great enthusiasm. And slowly, over the last 150 years since hes come of age and then some, hes been taking over the duties as Orchard Manager unasked. The Council pays him handsomely and displays gratitude over this since the southern slopes of the Bluevein River have turned into a really ideal spot for most fruit and nut trees to thrive.


 
Levan and Katuv
Image
Name: Levan & Katuv
Race: Akalak
DoB: 372 AV (140 yo)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Creamery Owner
Skills: Business Management 64, Lakan 56, Cheesemaking 30
Gnosis: 1 Wysar

Levan and Katuv are very level headed very well merged brothers who run the Creamery with a solid joy that shows in everything they do. The animals in their care are treated very well by the handlers and given the best possible life. They are culled when they stop producing, so they have a far more reasonable and lengthy lifespan than the majority of food animals in Riverfall.

They attribute the high quality of milk to the high quality of care and swear by their product despite the risks things like Djed Storms pose to their herds.


 
Burgundy Elva
Image
Name: Burgundy (Dandi) Elva
Race: Human
DoB: 482 (32 YO)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Proprietor
Skills: Fortune Telling 82, Drawing 75, Painting 65
Gnosis: Avalis 3

Born and raised in Riverfall, Dandi learned from her Konti nursemaid at a very early age that she was gifted in fortune telling and divination. Having been trained by the same woman, Dandi found herself in multiple situations where she's aided the city of Riverfall with early warnings of impending dangerous and assisted a God or two earning her three Divination marks thus far. And because she's marked as a priestess of Avalis, Dandi can always help with many sorts of crisis'.


 
Carla Heshin
Image
Name: Carla Heshin
Race: Human
DoB: 1st of Summer, 472AV (Age 40)
PoB: Ravok
Title: Owner
Skills: Leadership 61, Dance 54, Weapon: Dagger 46, Socialization 39
Gnosis: None
Additional Info: Carla was born in Ravok to a poor family. When her parents were found dead in an alleyway, victims of a mugging gone wrong, she survived as long as she could on the streets until she was caught and sold into slavery. Bouncing around from master to master, she finally ended up in Riverfall where the Council bought her contract. The profits from the Sapphire Star go directly to the Council to pay off her debt. To anyone who asks, it is a delicate subject that she appears to be ambivalent about, saying only that the mizas she pays are a small price to pay for her freedom.

She initially intended the Sapphire Star to be a general lounge, but her close friend Lika gave her the idea of having a place exclusively for women to mingle.

 
Riharo and Suliss
Image
Name: Riharo/Suliss
Race: Akalak
DoB: 500 AV (112 YO)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Owner
Skills: Climbing 70, Body Building 35, Teaching 30, Hunting 45
Gnosis: None

Riharo spent his entire life in Riverfall, and was always a fan of the beauty of the cliffs that made up his home. He spent his early years scaling the smallest of them, and discovered he was good at it. One day he decided to make a business of it. Riharo is a friendly, energetic man who loves physical sport whether it be climbing, or some other form of physical activity. When his shop closes due to weather, he can usually be found training with his lakan or doing some other sort of physical activity.

Biography

Riharo was born in the year 382 AV to an Akalak father and a Konti mother. He has one other sibling, and he himself sired a child in the year 440 AV. Unfortunately, he lost his son to the Sea of Grass during his coming of age ceremony and has yet to sire another, though not for lack of trying. He has lost two children to childbirth since his son died, and sometimes he thinks he just wasn't meant to have any children.

Riharo was a hunter before he opened his business, though he always enjoyed rock climbing. He hunted the grasslands for many years before finally settling down, growing tired of the boring plains, and wanting to explore other things. He opened Riverfall Rock Climbing in the year 477 AV, and ran it by himself until he met Rynn, a kelvic who after several attempts finally conceived a child. Unfortunately, yet again, the child was lost, but Riharo had taken a liking to Rynn, and continued to try. Just after the Djed Storm of 512, she became pregnant once more. Rynn moved in with him immediately, and has helped him run his business ever since.

Personality

Riharo is friendly and energetic, always willing to lend a helping hand. He is certainly more dominant than his dark soul Suliss, which is fortunate for any students he takes on, because Suliss is a prankster. While he rarely goes so far as to put someone in a situation that could prove lethal, there have been a few accidents in which someone was injured while climbing due to his darker soul. Both souls are romantics, and both are in love with Rynn, which sometimes fosters competition between the two sides. Riharo being the stronger of the two usually wins out, however.

 
Haiduk and Ureig
Image
Name: Haiduk
Race: Akalak
DoB: The 23rd of the Spring Season, 357 AV
PoB: Riverfall, Cyphrus Region
Title: Head Weaponsmith at the Arma'Drex Smithy
Skills: Weaponsmithing 87; Weaponry: Lakan 58; Blacksmithing 36; Rhetoric 24
Additional Info: Haiduk was born and raised in Riverfall. From a young age he decided he would forge the best Lakan in Riverfall. Most of his childhood was spent practicing his craft when not training. He had few close friends, but many acquaintances, for everybody respected his hard work and persistence. When the time came to forge his Lakan, the entire city held its breath. This was the moment Haiduk had been building up to his entire life. Today, Haiduk has what is considered to be one of the most finely crafted Lakan in Riverfall.

The weaponsmith of the Arma'Drex is quiet and focused for the most part, this side of Haiduk. Most of the time it is he who is in control, because his other side Ureig, cannot seem to focus on the task of weaponsmithing. Ureig and Haiduk have a rather easy truce though: Haiduk does the work, and Ureig makes his counterpart relax when the time comes. Where Haiduk is introverted and usually not too brilliant around people, Ureig delights in surrounding himself with others, and loves playing jokes even more so; although often his idea of amusement is rather cruel.

 
Loriim and Belladus
Image
Name: Loriim
Race: Akalak
DoB: The 3rd of the Spring Season, 391 AV
PoB: Riverfall, Cyphrus Region
Title: Head Armorsmith at the Arma'Drex Smithy
Skills: Armorsmithing 92; Metalworking 57: Meditation 34
Additional Info: Short and light for an Akalak, it is surprising that Loriim is an armorsmith. However, he spent much of his childhood working and studying armor. His lack of skill with weapons almost got him killed during both his Rites, and he bears numerous scars to tell the tale. Many would think him to be a grizzled veteran of sorts, but Loriim is anything but. Now he works with his armor, safely away from Glassbeaks and Zith.

Loriim gets along fantastically with Ureig, and enjoys Haiduk's company as well. He enjoys the pranks and tricks Ureig delights in, though often gets uncomfortable when they turn nasty and does not often trick people himself. Loriim himself is rather introverted, but enjoys relaxing when not working with a customer. His other half, Belladus, is the polar opposite of Loriim. Belladus revels is stone serious, revels in combat, loud, and exceptionally undisciplined. In his childhood, Loriim often struggled when suppressing Belladus, but now Loriim's trained mind easily thwarts Belladus and his impulsive nature. The darker side of the armor smith resents him deeply, mainly for his lack of skill with any weaponry and lack of desire to fight. Loriim shares this sentiment, though will begrudgingly admit it was only Belladus that saw him through his Rites.

 
Jackinto and Efrev Valreig
Image
Name: Jacinkto Valereig
Race: Akalak
DoB: The 43rd of the Winter Season, 330 AV
PoB: Riverfall, Cyphrus Region
Title: Jeweler at Valereig's Gem Shop
Skills: Jeweling 76; Weaponry: Lakan 28; Metalsmithing 20
Additional Info: Jacinkto is a restless individual, as well as a homebody. His darker half, Efrev, is a very cloistered and private person. Given the chance, he would sit in the shop all day with his precious gems. He lacks social skills, and lashes out when he believes people are patronizing him. Jacinkto, on the other hand, is a rather optimistic soul. Often he finds himself wandering the city or surrounding area, or striking out deeper into the Sea of Grass. For this, Efrev often patronizes him though, and the pair will struggle for control until Jacinkto agrees to return to his work for a while.


 
Mosrila
ImageName: Mos'rila
Race: Human
DoB: The 15th of the Spring Season, 474 AV
PoB: Syliras, Sylira Region
Title: Proprietor of Godiva's Refuge, Martial Arts Expert
Skills: Unarmed Combat 65; Acrobatics 61; Massage 58; Business 45; Singing 40
Gnosis: 1 Wysar
Additional Info: There once existed a complete lack of organization in Riverfall when the Council first started sending out patrols further into the Grasslands around Riverfall. At first, it was to keep the youth in practice at their training when they encountered slave caravans and raiders. Later though, it was discovered that there was a side benefit from these trips, for more females started coming into the Riverfall community. Mos'rila was among the first of these ladies and saw an opportunity not only to provide a much needed service for the inbound, but to expand her skills. Petitioning to the Council, she was able to secure a facility and opened Godiva's to both provide housing for newcomers free of charge and long term housing for individuals that were under contract as Nakivak (but who did not reside with their contractees).

 
Karvin Lostrum
Image
Name: Karvin/Lostrum Gilia
Race: Akalak
DoB: 298 AV (214)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Head Healer
Skills: Healing 91, Herbalism 85, Philtering 75, Business 55
Gnosis: Rak'keli 3

Karvin is a second generation healer who's family has ran the Gilia Medical Center for all of its existence. They've sweated and toiled, building it up to what it is today by sheer dedication. Karvin and his dark brother Lostrum pull long hours at the healing center. They run the day to day operations of the place, hiring and firing people and acquiring the necessary needed supplies to keep everything from bandages to medicines in stock.

Karvin is incredibly personable and considered one of the most approachable Akalaks in the city. He has yet to be a father and is said to be on the lookout for the perfect kelvic or Nakivak of Konti origins. Karvin's office has an open door policy and is often occupied by visitors, concerned relatives of patience or people who are trying to get in on Karvin's supply chain and be a seller to the prestigious institute.

 
Vincent Callatori
Image
Name: Vincent Callatori
Race: Human
DoB: 87th of Winter 451AV
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Reimancer, Keeper of The Mist Residence
Skills: Reimancy 76; Glyphing 47; Voiding 39; Plant Identification 26; Herbalism 18
Gnosis: None
Additional Info:

Not in the best standing with the Akalak due to lack of discipline and being a male. Drinks copious amounts of alcohol. Does not travel. Looking for an apprentice to take up some of the slack because he's tired of working so hard. Vincent isn't immune to flattery when it comes to his not inconsiderable Reimancy abilities.

 
Tsarahas
Image
Name: Tsarahas
Race: Half Eypharian
DoB: 2nd of Spring 485AV
PoB: Ahnatep
Title: Procurer and Hostess of the Suvan Suites
Skills: Politics 81, Hostessing 75, Seduction 62, Persuasion, 48, Negotiation 45, Dagger 30, Dual Wield 26
Gnosis: 1 Makutsi
Additional Info:

Tsarahas is an incredibly beautiful Half Eypharian with an enchanting manner. Never one to raise her voice or show her ire, she is the ideal hostess in every situation. With savvy political and persuasive skills, consider yourself lucky if she patronizes your shop with her flawless taste.

 
Garob
Image
Name: Garob re Ahnatep
Race: Eypharian
DoB: 3rd of Winter, 480AV
PoB: Ahnatep, Eyktol
Title: Owner of Terra Cottage
Skills: Pottery 65, Leadership 30, Negotiation 25, Metalworking 30, Polearm 30
Gnosis: None
Additional Info:

Garob of Ahnatep is a well-traveled Eypharian. For most of his life, he conducted business in Ahnatep. Clay is scarce in the desert region making his dealings more lucrative. The catch was, it required a great deal of travel. After many seasons of traversing the Kabrin Road, he decided to settle down in Riverfall. It meant a bit more travel, but he'd had enough of the scorching heat and the dusty roads. After receiving his citizenship he began his reputation in earner.

This gentlemen is a vivid personality. He gestures wildly with his arms and tells grandiose tales of his youth. Though still handsome, his skin has begun to line with age. He tends toward introversion, secluding himself ofttimes to the work rooms of the back. Garob struggled with being a workaholic and is only kept in line by his Kelvic Bondmate, Alheira. To counteract his constant activity she shifts into a indolent housecat, demanding attention from all of his appendages. Their relationship was the primary reason for his moving into the city proper.

Garob deals well with customers and is sought out for his unique style. Each ceramic item is crafted with care and evaluated many times before being displayed. His work ranges somewhere in the thousands, easily. Each object is inscribed with a calligraphic "G."

 
Kyole Vastanik
Image
Name: Kyole Vastanik
Race: Akalak
DoB: 15 Winter 339AV (Age 173)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Owner of Kyole's Butcher Shop
Skills: Food Preservation - 82, Butchery - 90, Cooking - 29, Weapon: Cleaver - 42, Hunting - 58, Negotiation - 40, Rhetoric - 61
Gnosis: None
Additional Info: Kyole Vastanik stands at 7’2” tall and has a large, athletic build. Most women would say he has a pleasing face, if it weren’t always distorted in a weird expression during his practical jokes at the shop. He has dark brown eyes, a long, narrow nose and short, thick lips. His face is clean shaven, with black hair that would fall just beyond his shoulder if it were constantly tied back into the cloth he keeps wrapped around his head when handling the food. If he’s not found at the shop in his usual attire, Kyole can normally be found wearing a casual pair of brown leather pants, shin high black leather boots, and a simple white tunic with an open front.

Kyole Vastanik was one of the few children who cut up and field dressed the Glassbeak he killed during his Rite of Trial, and many of his peers and even those who supervised their hunt, found he did it much more efficiently than those who had been doing it for years before him. So it came to no surprise by any of his family when he announced his plans to prepare and sell meat, providing for Riverfall for those who had the coin, but no skill at obtaining such foods on their own.

Kyole is often a warm and welcoming individual, whether to those he sees on the street or the customers who comes into his shop. If you have a question about field dressing your animals, he will be happy to answer. If there is a particular meat you are looking for, he’ll normally have it if the animal isn’t rare or out of season. Whatever the reason people approach him for, they often find Kyole one of the easiest Akalak’s to befriend in the city, it’s those who know of his mischievous Dark brother that they could do without. While some of the Dark Akalak’s are violent, others manipulative, and other’s still just a complete ass, Kyole’s dark brother is a prankster, often surfacing to come out of the back room of his shop screaming with some butchered meat hanging from the sleeve of his tunic like bloody chunks where his hand would normally be. Other times, especially if out in the street, he will slip pieces of meat to other’s waists just for the opportunity to see dogs chasing after them, or fish just to see people and the victim of his joke, react to the smell. Likely the cruelest joke Kyole’s dark brother played, was on Nevar, who generally is Kyole’s first customer of the day. Nevar one morning was found screaming for guards and sentries when he came into Kyole’s butcher shop to see Kyole laying on the floor, one of his cleavers stuck into a bloodied heave of sliced flesh along Koyle’s chest. Only when several people and guards had gathered, did Kyole’s dark half suddenly burst out laughing, pulling the cleaver and a large chunk of destroyed meat from his chest, revealing his ruse. While several had laughed, Nevar did not, and it took Kyole two years to pay off the fine he was levied with for such. In the end, his brother thought it worth it.

PoB: Syliras
Title: Prostitute for the Velvet Curtain
Skills: Seduction 51, Socialization 38, Dance 30, Juggling 15
Gnosis:
Additional Info: One of the bubblier denizens of Riverfall’s brothel, she makes for an enthusiastic, but unfortunately dim, companion. Those who request her find her passionate about making them comfortable, but quick to change the subject if the conversation makes a turn for the more complex. She juggles on occasion for a laugh, and has a favorite trick where she’s able to fill a shotglass balanced on her head.

Kiki was sold into slavery at the tender age of 15 and was passed to progressively worse owners, until she ended up in a Ravok brothel at 17. From there, the former madam of the Velvet Curtain bought her contact and brought her to Riverfall. Kiki’s working towards the goal of paying off her contract, so she might be free of prostitution forever, but her somewhat average popularity among clients puts her several years away from that goal.

Alia Mnerit
Image
Name: Alia Mnerit
Race: Human
DoB: Summer 490, AV
PoB: Claridon
Title: Cook and Manager of Laviku's Secret (aka "the Lasher")
Skills: 54 Cooking, 49 Socializing, 30 Intimidation
Gnosis: None

While she may be gentle and courteous to customers, those who work for her fear her. With a voice like a lash and less patience than could fit in a thimble, she talks fast, assigns large amounts of work and expects her employees to keep up. While Laviku’s Secret certainly provides good sights, her food prevents it from becoming a mere ferry and though it is certainly not the best on Mizahar, it is well-made and filling.


 
Skrev
Image
Name: Skrev Mnerit
Race: Human
DoB: Summer 490, AV
PoB: Claridon
Title: None (Skrev has been long searching for a name of his exact position, but as of yet has never come up with one.)
Skills: 44 Accounting, 43 Socializing, 37 Business, 5 Massage
Gnosis: None

Slow to anger and quick to calm, Skrev is a likeable fellow with a gentle sense of humor. Though he does little on the ship itself, he takes care of most arrangements made between Hruthar and others. He works out appointments with patrons, organizes nightly entertainment and carries all complaints to his superiors. He rarely goes on the trips themselves, but can easily be found on the docks during off hours, tending to the ship.


 
Ardan
Image
Name: Ardan
Race: Human
DoB: 486 AV
PoB: Unknown
Title: Bouncer, Ebonstryfe Soldier
Skills: Brawling 55, Shortsword 40, Intelligence 15, Interrogation 25
Gnosis: Chaon - Rank 1

Ardan was born a slave, and still bears the mark of it burned into the top of his right hand. The brand, however, has become a symbol of pride for the man as it is also where Rhysol's blood first touched him, making him one of the Chaon. Ardan is the bouncer at the Rat Hole, but he is also a soldier of the Ebonstrfye. He was assigned to protect and assist Tom in any way necessary. Ardan is a grim, rough man, and won’t hesitate to throw a body out the window just to make a point.

Biography

Ardan was born a slave and spent most of his childhood being passed from one slaver to the next until he finally ended up in Ravok. He was purchased by a member of the Ebonstryfe, who trained him in the arts of combat. Korgan earned his freedom when he saved his master from a Syliran spy who tried to kill him. His master, impressed by his slave, set him free and invited him to join the Ebonstryfe. Ardan excelled and earned his mark making him a full soldier in the Ebonstryfe. He was eventually sent to Riverfall, where he was assigned to protect an Acolyte named Tom Volus. Ardan arrived in Riverfall in the year 509 AV, and lives in the back room of the Rat Hole.

Personality

Ardan is a grim man with a hard personality. Growing up a slave, and after that becoming a member of the Ebonstryfe, he did not know much joy in his youth, and thus has trouble expressing it. He enjoys women, ale, and good food, and little else. Ardan isn't much for conversation, but he is skilled in prying the words from someone's lips through other means if necessary.


 
Sashin and Sebek Bodulan
Image
Name: Sashin/Sebek Bodulan
Race: Akalak
DoB: 16th of Winter, 439AV (Age 73)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Head Psychiatrist
Skills: Observation 91, Interrogation 84, Persuasion 66, Rhetoric 50, Weapon: Lakan 33
Gnosis: 1 Ionu, 1 Avalis
Additional Info: Sashin’s family has been connected with the Vortake’s as long as either of them can remember. Sashin and Kartash played together as boys, and while their darker sides butt heads sometimes, they’ve remained good friends.

Sashin grew up with a slight distaste for blood, and had early ambitions to go into politics, after an early affinity for rhetoric showed him to be a level headed young man. He’s sired a couple children, many of whom have followed him into the healing arts, and almost always apprentice with him at the Center.

Personally, he has a kind heart, and a slow, gentle manner of speaking. He is almost universally liked, though few know much about his personal life. Sebek, his darker side, is more tolerant of bloodshed, but the pair share an understanding of a warrior's heart. When dealing with cases that involve the darker half of another Akalak, Sebek usually makes an appearance to connect on that level.


 
Kartash and Letin Vortake
Image
Name: Kartash/Letin Vortake
Race: Akalak
DoB: 91st of Winter, 443AV (Age 69)
PoB: Riverfall

Skills: Observation 82, Medicine 80, Herbalism 69, Philtering 65, Weapon: Lakan 45
Gnosis: 2 Rak’keli, 1 Viratas
Additional Info: Kartash is, and always has been, stubborn to the point of bull headedness, and a natural leader. In his first Zith raid, the hunting party was ambushed and out numbered, and though they eventually put down the Zith, the party would have never made it back to Riverfall if not for Kartash’s talent in healing, and he was recognized for the Council for his valor, and by Rak’keli with his first gnosis mark.

Unlike Sashin, he has no distaste for blood, and has no problem getting elbows deep in blood and gore in order to save a patient. Letin is just as stubborn as his lighter side, but takes a patient’s well being much more personally. Not to say he cares for them personally, but that it becomes an affront to his pride if they don’t immediately get better. When not in Intensive Care or the Inpatient Ward, he is often the Healer seen when someone comes in for Outpatient physical therapy.

Kartash and Sashin have been known to have arguments over what path of treatment to take with a patient, but if Letin and Sebek get involved, the arguments can and have gotten physical. On the rare occasions this has happened, only Nikana, or specifically Nipra, can pull them apart.


 
Lanas and Savak Aswin
Image
Name: Lanas and Savak Aswin
Race: Akalak
DoB: 399 AV (114)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Renowned Jewelcrafter
Skills: Jewelcrafter 75, Metalsmithing 61, Engraving 45, Singing 28
Gnosis: 1 Semele
Additional Info: Lanas Aswin and his dark brother Savak Aswin are noted Jewelcrafters in Riverfall. Lanas' family has strong ties to the Coalinga Gem Mines and he has connections enough within the mines via his son Nesco to acquire just about everything he needs for his profession. Lanas has who daughters (Rose and Suni), and a son (Nesco) who all live with him. His daughters run his retail operations, while his son Nesco is an official at the mine. Lanas lives with Lars Varkas, an important mage, and their Nakivak Nivasa whom has given the two men seven children to date. Tanival and Lars live on the Varkas Estate which is within the city overlooking the Suvan on the top tier. Potential clients and students can seek him there as well as talk to Lars or Kavin, Lars' dark brother, for reimancy work or apprenticeships.


 
Nikana and Nipra Vortake
Image
Name: Nikana/Nipra Vortake
Race: Akontak
DoB: 1st of Autumn, 472AV (Age 40)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Head Nurse
Skills: Observation 70, Medicine 60, Organization 55, Unarmed Combat 50
Gnosis: None
Additional Info: Nikana is Kartash’s younger sister, but you’d only know it from their bickering, as there is little open affection between them. She tolerates no insubordination from either patient or staff, and has been known to take even Kartash and Sashin to task for a poorly handled situation. Years of handling warriors, particularly when they’re not in their right mind, has given her sizeable physical strength, though a slight addiction to sweets has given her a little extra girth.

Any flirtatious behavior from a patient will get them an immediate trip to her bad side, as a woman with a husband and two children has no interest in wasting time letting men down gently. As head nurse, she is responsible for not only all the patients, but organizing the staff and paperwork. She has the final say in all matters not directly involving the Head Healer or Psychiatrist, and can be extremely strict. She occasionally helps out with the Outpatient physical therapy, and also heads all of the group exercise classes.

Nikana and Nipra have a good relationship, though Nipra can get a little violent when putting down an unruly patient.


 
Dolmar
Image
Name: Dolmar
Race: Akalak
DoB: 412 (100 Yo)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Chef
Skills: Cooking 85, Baking 75, Unarmed Combat 65, Cleaver 45
Gnosis: Wysar 1

If Korana was the mastermind behind the Almond Blossom, it is certainly chef Dolmar's talent that keeps it alive (and his mistress from unwanted attentions). Dolmar loves to cook. His joy in his duties ooze from every pore of his being and reflect in his eyes when he hears the hint of a new technique or a new food source. Many times the Almond Blossom has played host to his creations and its due to his vigilance as a cook that people keep coming back.

Dolmar is fair and often takes apprentices and trainees under his belt. He always has need of kitchen help, but is very selective of who he picks. They must be clean, polite, and willing to listen. They must also treat Korana with kid gloves.


 
Mason Charvi
Image
Name: Mason Charvi
Race: Dyrkas
DoB: 480 AV (32 YO)
PoB: Endrykas
Title: Head Viticulturist
Skills: Vinting 65, Botany 55, Bullwhip 45
Gnosis: 3 Bala

As a priest of Bala, Mason left the Sea of Grass at an early age (just after 22) and found himself at Jonathan Black's door. Jonathan had just lost his uncle to a slave raid accident and that left him without serious help in the vineyard and winery. Mason discovered he worked well with Jon and together the two of them have been overseeing the winery ever since. Mason is generally in charge of the day to day workings of the vines while more and more Jon and Koz oversee the actual vinting.

PoB: Riverfall
Title: Waitress
Skills: Waitressing 55, Gambling 32, Short Bow 25, Seduction 13
Gnosis: None.

Janii is nothing special, just a Drykas girl hard on her luck who took a job at The Blue Bull because she wasn't scared of the giant Akalaks nor of good strong wine. She's fiercely loyal to Kevlar and is rumored to be about to enter into a Nakivak contract with him even with the inherent risks.

 
Ann Flowerheart
Image
Name: Ann Flowerheart
Race: Drykas
DoB: 480 (32 yo)
PoB: Endyrkas
Title: Barkeeper
Skills: Bartending 75, Philtering 45, Socialization 30
Gnosis: None.

Ann is by and large the most friendly person in The Blue Bull. She talks to everyone and they more importantly talk to her. She's an excellent mixologist and careful with how she crafts her drinks, never shorting her clients and never leaving them unsatisfied. It is said that Ann knows at least half the gossip worth knowing in Riverfall and whether or not the current rumors are true regardless of who's talking about whom or what said gossip entails.


 
Morgal Trokas
Image
Name: Morgal Trokas
Race: Akalak
DoB: Spring 15th, 469AV (43)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Head Bouncer
Skills: Bodybuilding 62, Unarmed combat 59, Observation 52, Intimidation 45
Gnosis: 1 Wysar
Additional Info: A silent and stoic shadow, Morgal is the only employee who has been with the Velvet Curtain since its opening. Like all of the bouncers, he does not interact with the customers unless things get out of hand, though he most often patrols the other side of the mirrors of the back rooms, which are connected to a single hallway behind them for working girls and bouncers. Occasionally, he can be seen outside of the establishment, walking groups of the women home. Rumors fly that he has a deep, unrequited love for Silka, but neither have confirmed it and the supposed evidence is nothing more than heresay.


 
Horicant
Image
Name: Horicant
Race: Akalak
DoB: 423 (89 YO)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Receptionist
Skills: Business 54; Accounting 34; Negotiation 30; Lakan 28
Gnosis: Bala 1

Horicant has been unable to reproduce since an injury he received long ago. As such, he has grown to accept his low status, and received a job working outside the city for a boss that would not judge him. However he is still constantly attacked and ridiculed by his other half, Tujok. While Tujok is unable to fully seize control from Horicant, he still often barrages his other half with insults and mockery because of their situation. Many people see the good brother in this Akalak as the evil one, because while Horicant is always in control, Tujok often makes it a point to ruin his day and make him irritable. He just takes life one day at a time though, and has become good friends with Ailodes

 
Savena Whitestone
Image
Name: Savena Whitestone
Race: Konti
DoB: 412 AV (100 yo)
PoB: Mura
Title: Head Cheesemaker
Skills: Cheesemaking 81, Food Preservation 60, Animal Husbandry 45, Suvai 25
Gnosis: 1 Rak'Kali

Savena is in charge of the Zuva Creamery and has been since she was sent on Call to Riverfall to begin her career here. Apprenticing in the Zuva Creamery as a young Konti, Savena worked her way up out producing a great many Akalaks and finding her true forte in cheese.

Savena is friendly, outgoing, and loves to talk her craft. She's in a position to take students and to give advice of all sorts on utilizing milk products and turning them into food. Savena is also the owner, Levan & Katuv's Nakivak.


 
Lika and Predera Kibraxa
Image

Race: Akontak
DoB: 1st of Summer, 471 (Age 41)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Bouncer
Skills: Intimidation 79, Observation 71, Unarmed Combat 56, Body Building 50
Gnosis: 1 Ennervism, 1 Night Stalking
Additional Info: Lika was born to a prolific Akalak and Konti pair, the youngest in a line of five older brothers. All her brothers were exceptional warriors, leading Lika to follow in their footsteps. She is serious to a fault, and is pointedly lacking any sense of humor. She has a soft spot for Carla alone, and has manned the doors at the Sapphire Star since the day it opened. Pradera can get violent if an intruder is caught, but otherwise she and Lika have a productive relationship.

Lika is a Nakivak of her own volition, swearing to anyone who asks that she’ll never take a husband. There are many rumors that she is sevetal, with more than just a soft spot for Carla, but neither admit anything untoward.
 
Nimi
Image
Name: Nimi
Race: Inarta
DoB: The 5th of the Fall Season, 460 AV
PoB: Wind Reach, Kalea Region
Title: Glassworker at the Artfire Glassworks
Skills: Glassworking 55; Boomerang 45; Organization 25; Persuasion 25
Additional Info: Brash and bawdy with a flare for the dramatic, Nimi naturally caught the eye of numerous Akalaks as she arrived in Riverfall during the summer of 485 AV. However, her travelling companions at the time - a caravan of Drykas merchants that she befriended only a season earlier - managed to keep the natives at bay, which afforded the young Inarta the time and space she needed to settle in as a permanent resident. Just a few seasons later, Nimi solidified her citizenship when she began to produce some of the most breathtaking glassworks in all the region. A hardworking, savvy merchant till this very day, the Inarta is proud of her numerous accomplishments - including transforming her niece, Uopa, from an unfocused wild child into a respectable woman and skilled artisan - and she is pleased to call Riverfall her home.

 
Sohryn and Reveric Nurhahj
Image
Name: Sohryn Nurhahj

PoB: Riverfall, Cyphrus Region
Title: Weapons Instructor at the Kendoka Sasaran
Skills: Weapon: Spear 69; Weapon: Javelin 47; Weapon: Bo Staff 45
Additional Info: Sohryn and his other half, Reveric, are two halves of the same coin. Both enjoy teaching, and both enjoy their weaponry. However, where Sohryn will take time with his students and find a great deal (often too much) pride in them, Reveric will waste no time beating them down if comprehension does not immediately come. Sohryn is the dominant half, yet small amounts of stress tend to cause Reveric to stir.

 
Clarissa
Image
Name: Clarissa
Race: Human
DoB: 486 (25 YO)
PoB: Syliras
Title: Healer
Skills: Medicine 73, Philtering 31, Massage: 42, Rhetoric: 28, Herbalism: 59
Gnosis: Priskil 1, Rak'keli 1

Clarissa is relatively new to Riverfall, having traveled from Syliras after hearing the rumors of how life for women would be easier within their city walls. And for a while, she did find things easier. However, after repeated offers from Akalak men were turned down, she eventually found herself having to work harder for what she needed. It wasn’t until she had saved the elder of a prominent Akalak family, from dying from injuries sustained in a raid, that her skill as a healer was recognized. Only a year had passed before she took over as the chief healer of the first floor, soon after the Medical Center’s previous chief healer died from natural causes.
 
Lorithi
Image
Name: Lorithi
Race: Konti
DoB: 386 (126 YO)
PoB: Mura
Title: Healer, Ex-Nakivak
Skills: Medicine 42, Philtering 56, Teaching 34, Negotiation 80
Gnosis: Rak'keli 2, Avalis 1

It was close to a century ago since Lorithi had come from the isle, following the call, and like many Konti coming to the mainland, her arrival was not what she expected. Not even a season had passed before she was captured by slavers. She was fortunate in that this particular group merely used her body occasionally in their travels to sell her. Still, her empathic nature caused her to feel the vile nature of each one, every time they took her, and slowly it caused her to lose hope in ever finding the true nature of her call.

Close to a year would pass, before she found saviors, these tall men with blue and cobalt skin tones. They were fierce in their attack of the slavers, dispatching each with a fierce savagery one moment, and a calm efficiency another. When the last slaver was left, he used Lorithi as a shield, hoping to barter her life for his own. One Akalak’s answer came in the form of a sharp Lakan, spinning through the air. It had merely grazed Lorithi’s hair before imbedding itself into the slaver’s head.

Lorithi was saved, and even as one of the Akalaks, who spoke her native language fluently, began to explain to her that she now owed a debt to their race, she couldn’t help but feel her own call as she dropped to her knees and embraced the nearest one, wrapping her arms around his legs in gratitude. In Riverfall, Lorithi found herself lost. Lost to the customs, to the language, even to the customs when they attached her silver bracelet, marking her as a Nakivak. Looking around, she saw that others were as unaware as she. It wasn’t until the first who claimed their right, an Akalak named Delkort, that such was finally explained to her. Over the course of a year she spent with Delkort, carrying his son, she learned the Akalak language, their customs, the dual souls all Akalak carry, what it meant to be a Nakivak and the primary reasons why.

It changed everything for her in the end. Not only did she see the Akalak as saviors, but when she discovered that the status of a Nakivak wasn’t primarily a means for an Akalak to find pleasure without commitment, but to continue their race, it made the call she heard all that much more clear. She discovered that she was helping to continue their race, and that was their primary reasoning. After they had saved her own from an existence she could barely fathom would end, giving her saviors children, doing her part to ensure their race survived, seemed the least she could do. In the end, she didn’t feel her Nakivak status a form of slavery, but a simple step she would be taking overall for her calling.

After a short time, she had finally paid her debt to the city, but instead of leaving in search of other things, she turned her gifts of healing towards helping other expectant mothers within Riverfall, doing whatever she could to ensure that they would live through the birth of an Akalak, ensuring that further members of their race are born, and hoping to save the mother as well. While she is no longer a Nakivak, Lorithi still accepts offers to sire further Akalak children. The only difference now is that she gets to choose whom she sires a child for, and most often her generous nature towards such will favor those who have recently passed their Rite of Manhood, and who’s family line does not run long. She fells every family line should be allowed to grow, not just the prestigious ones who can afford to throw the most mizas at her.

 
Chell
Image
Name: Chell
Race: Human
DoB: 90th of Summer 489AV
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Hostess
Skills: Hostessing 49, Cooking 34, Organization 30
Gnosis: None
Additional Info:

A fair skinned woman with auburn hair which matches the color of the tavern quite well can just about always be found behind the bar. She wears a full, playful smile throughout the days and nights when working, though she hardly calls it work. Also enjoying new faces, Chell enjoys a particularly amiable discourse with the local Akalak residents as well.

 
Sivoret
Image
Name: Sivoret
Race: Human
DoB: 55th of Winter 469AV
PoB: Alvadas
Title: Chemist
Skills: Philtering 67; Herbalism 40; Medicine 37; Rhetoric 28
Gnosis: Ionu 2
Additional Info:

When and why Sivoret arrived in Riverfall is to this day something of a mystery. But one day he arrived on a ship from the city of Alvadas and made himself right at home. Minous was one of the first friends Sivoret made in the city, being drawn to the complex deceptions and round about solutions of his mechanisms. Since their partnership began, the two have been working away in their little corner of Riverfall

Sivoret is not reserved, nor is he open. Given the chance he could speak to somebody for hours on end, the conversation interwoven with the dramatic flair that only a patron of Ionu can bring. Indeed, watching him work is much like watching a magic show, the careful process of philtering mixed with flourishes and smoke and effects. Yet, after nearly two hours of conversation one would notice they know nothing more about Sivoret as the moment they walked in.
Despite his casual demeanor most of the time, certain subjects flip a switch in Sivoret and his keen wit and sociability vanishes for a steely demeanor. What exactly sets him off is as vague as his origins, but most do not have to worry about such an occurrence. Suffice it to say, Sivoret is a confusing individual.

 
Arril
Image
Name:Arril
Race:Inartan
DoB:78 Summer 470(42 yrs)
PoB:Wind Reach
Title:Fletcher, Archery Teacher
Skills:Brawling- 40, Carving- 32, Falconry- 43, Fletching/ Bowing- 52, Hunting- 48, Tracking- 37, Weapon(Shortbow)- 57
Gnosis:
Additional Info:
His wife and the mother of his son, Arril, an fiery red haired Inartan, is the real hunter, and can often be seen out with her bow or birds. She supplements the pelts brought in by hunters, by ones of her own, and puts food on the table. She is also the crafter of bows and arrows, and on occasion has been known to take out a young Akalak on a teaching hunt, though for a cost. She considers her skill to great to give out for free, and to busy running a business and keeping the family afloat.

Hylda Vink
Image
Name: Hylda Vink
Race: Human
DoB: 481AV, 31 years old
PoB: Sunberth
Title: Syliran Knight
Skills: Knife 40, Shield 35, Riding 43, Stealth 49, Persuasion 28, Larceny 52, Cooking 44
Gnosis: 1 Sylir
Additional Info: Has been known by the nickname "Hidden Hands" Hylda

Born as a street rat in Sunberth, Hylda engaged in small time thievery for a living. Working solely as a thief with no "thuggin'" skills, she soon crossed the wrong vendor by her sixteenth birthday whom spotted her, found her, beat her nearly to death, and took everything she had in her little hovel to pay for her larcenous crimes. With her reputation as an able thief shattered she moved to Syliras with the intent of utilizing the Knights for free room and board while she got back on her feet. Caught up in the duty and honor shown by her Patron and her fellow Squires, Hylda soon found herself absorbed almost completely into the Knightly lifestyle, choosing to put her effort toward aiding the Order instead of returning to the grimy backstabbing of Sunberth.

Having lived on bread and water for far too long during her time in Sunberth, she found inspiration from having to opportunity to mix various ingredients together in order to make new and exciting food dishes for her Patron. Now as a Knight herself, Hylda is a well known cook at the Syliran Station near Riverfall, and although her smile is as bright as her crystalline emerald eyes, she still maintains some of her old background. The legends of her hand speed have given her the nickname "Hidden Hands" Hylda, a woman whom is said to enter the battlefield with more than one hundred knives on her person. Hylda denies this, often stating that for practicality purposes she merely carries two blades at any one time.

 
Jerrad Huntingson
Image
Name: Jerrad Huntingson
Race: Human
DoB: 480 AV (32 Years)
PoB: Alvadas
Title: Weapon Trainer
Skills:Broadsword 90, Longsword 60, Shortsword 45, Dagger 55, Teaching 45 , Shield 40, Running 35, Bodybuilding 50 , Endurance 30
Gnosis: 1 Mark Evantia
Additional Info:
Jerrad is an extremely skilled and experienced trainer with a variety of weapons, body building, strength, training, endurance, technique and other various things. He spends his time training a variety of people from beginner to intermediate to even sparring with masters. He sometimes even spends time working on his own skills but those moments have practically died now that he is swamped with work.

Jerrad is one to help those who need help without hesitating. His skills when away from work usually require no costs if he feel as those it is necessary and the conditions are right. However, these times are usually rare. Jerrard does care for others but doesn't forget when someone screws him over and usually keeps it at heart. He is extremely patient and attempts to teach those who don't understand without getting frustrated quite easily.

Jerrad found his way into Riverfall after deciding that the Alvadas life just wasn't right for him. Her got on a boat and sailed straight to Syliras where he thought he would join the Knighthood but later found his calling in Riverfall where he took up the ways of the Akalak and began to train quite vigorously.
 
Kalagin Tromakas
Image
Name: Kalagin Tromakas
Race: Akalak
DoB: Summer, 361 AV, 151 yo
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Teacher
Skills: Teaching: 73, Organization: 32, Leadership: 27, Storytelling: 30, Weapon (Lakan): 35
Gnosis:
Additional Info: Moves slowly, awkwardly, from past fractures of both legs.

"Trade is the lifeblood that nourishes the body of Mizahar" Kalagin's father would say. Feeling that contact with the outside world would bring infusions of vitality, as well as more women, to the Akalak people, his father sought always to encourage interaction with foreigners. Kalagin respected his father's view, but did not want to follow in his footsteps in diplomacy. He wanted to be a warrior.

Fate stepped in, forcing a compromise. Kalagin was horribly injured during his Rite of Passage, and though he was victorious over his Zith adversary, both his legs were broken in a fall when this Zith dropped him from a height it deemed sufficient to kill him. Kalagin slew him when he came down to check. His legs healed poorly and Kalagin stoically accepted the fact that he would not grow to be a great warrior.

Instead, he chose to learn, and to impart what he learned, both to fellow Akalaks for their self-improvement, and to visitors, for more beneficial interaction with foreign cultures.

 
Morivik Xenotak
Image
Name: Morlavik Xenotak
Race: Akalak
DoB: 30th Winter, 460AV (Age 52)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Real Estate Agent/Investor
Skills: Observation 81, Interrogation 62, Socialization 50, Carpentry 46, Masonry 44, Weapon: Lakan 43
Gnosis: None
Additional Info: Morlavik started out as an uninspired carpenter building houses throughout Riverfall. He had an eye for accounting however, and after a few quick tips to his supervisor, started moving up through the ranks of the company. The company was family-owned, and though he had the skills to move into the high management levels, the fact that he was not a member of the family prevented him. He started prospecting in the real estate market, eventually earning enough money to outright buy the company he had not been able to take over from the inside. Since then, he has had wild success with the real estate of Riverfall, making him fantastically rich and very well connected. Most real estate agents in the city have some connection to him, and he now resides in the posh apartments of Suvan Suites.

Personally, few find it in their hearts to dislike him, except those he has undercut in his business. He is a lover of fine wine and beautiful women, though he is not married. He will take a Nakivak on occasion, when he feels his life has gotten stagnant. He is always dressed finely, in tailored suits and custom fashion from his personal tailor.

 
Kimbri
Image
Name: Kimbri
Race: Kelvic Cheetah
DoB: 509 AV (3)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Watchtower Guardian's Guardian, Ivory's Bondmate
Skills: Hunting 70, Unarmed Combat 50, Drumming 22
Gnosis: Priskil 1

Kimbri was bought in the market by Ivory when she was just a kitten. She was too small to be favorable for what the Akalak normally use female kelvics for, so Ivory took Kimbri on as her own and when the Cheetah was two, the pair bonded. They've been together ever since.

 
Kara Bloomsheart
Image
Name: Kara Bloomsheart
Race: Mixed Blood
DoB: 489 (23 YO)
PoB: Endrykas
Title: Secretary of Antiquities
Skills: Archaeology 75, Restoration 64, Organization 55, Anthropology 34, Copying 25, Drawing 20
Gnosis: None

Kara was born with a perfect memory. It suits her well as Secretary of Antiquities in the Society. She is in charge of all the warehouse and museum items, cataloging them, preserving them, and to some extent interpreting them. For being a mixed blood, Kara is tight lipped about what sort of Mixed Blood she is though its suspected she's at least part Dhani due to the unusual shimmery bronze tone to her skin. Rescued from Slavers at an early age, Kara grew up in Riverfall and when she became of age was pressed into service as a Nakivak to repay her debt. The Antiquities Society took her on because of her memory and now the two main movers and shakers enjoy her company and tend to keep her heavy with child almost year round once she proved to be a good breeder. When asked about her status, she mostly just smiles and tells people life is good. It has been rumored that Kara has balanced out both dark personalities in both the Maltar and Deven and they are often seen as a triplet about the city.


 
Tellar Verak
Image
Name: Tellar Verak
Race: Human
DoB: winter 489, 24 years old
PoB: Syliras
Title: Bartender
Skills: 50 bartending, 49 seduction, 33 poetry, 12 weapon(dagger)
Gnosis: none
Additional Info: Tellar was always a hopeless romantic, and with two wealthy merchant parents, his love of the immaterial was encouraged and he was sheltered from the world. When he was nineteen, he fell in love with descriptions of Riverfall and begged his parents to let him go. Eager to see their boy off to a place of his dreams, they gave him a sack of mizas and bid him luck.

The trip was stormy and Tellar arrived half-starved. Startled with how harsh the sea had been--he’d only believed in Laviku’s beauty before, and was certain that tales of his fury were exaggerations--he also came to see that Riverfall was not quite what he had expected, either. He discovered that being male in the home city of an all-male race was not quite as nice as he’d thought it to be. Every day was a competition with the mighty Akalaks, and it was a competition that left him physically and mentally exhausted.

He is now much wiser to the world and has found a place at the White Crane mixing drinks and listening to the woes of commoner and noble alike, and is often privy to very juicy secrets of the higher class.


 
Karina Tevener
Image
Name: Karina Tevener
Race: Human
DoB: 23 years old, born summer of 490
PoB: Zeltiva
Title: head waitress
Skills: 90 observation, 57 singing, 30 dancing, 29 seduction
Gnosis: none
Additional Info: Karina was a budding young barmaid in Zeltiva when she met the enigmatic Akalak Curric. He had been traveling to Mura in search of a mate, but he abandoned his quest when he fell in love with the young woman’s spitfire personality. He spent the better part of a year courting her, and eventually both she and her parents relented and she went off with him to Riverfall. She was completely taken by the city, and when she fell pregnant with Curric’s child she couldn’t have been happier. But all things are bound to change, and her happiness was no different.

Curric was called onto the Sea of Grass when the Djed storm raged towards them, even against Karina’s pleas for him to stay. She was forced to take shelter with the rest of the city, and in the caves she weathered the storm. When she emerged to the ravaged land, she feared the worst; it seemed that nothing on the surface had survived the storm. Some teams set out to try and locate the bodies, but she had little hope.

Until Curric returned. At first, she hadn’t recognized him. He had... changed in ways she had not expected. It was a bit difficult to wrap her mind around, but it was not without cause; after all, it was not every day that a wife found her husband turned into a female!

Unsure how to adjust to the unusual development, she and Curric agreed to take a small breather to process the changes. While he... she began to come to terms with the storm’s repercussions, Karina suddenly had to support herself. Already with experience as a barmaid, she managed to impress Aena and began to earn a wage at the Crane. With multiple skills to her name, the woman worked her way through the ranks and now directs a host of underlings. She keeps the orders coming and the taps flowing, and if she recieves the odd flirt on the side, that isn’t too bad, either.

Image

DoB: 434 ( 78 YO)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Society Treasurer & Member
Skills: Archaeology 87, Geography 74, Cartography 65, Spelunking 55, Glyphing 29
Gnosis: Eyris 2, Semele 1

Deven likes to take the back seat to Maltar though hes just as important. While Maltar tends to love to go up in his explorations, Deven and his dark brother tend to go downward.

Arikamiss and Akarcha
Image Name: Arikamiss/Akarcha
Race: Akalak
DoB: 83rd of Winter, 402AV (Age 110)
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Guard at Beautiful Things
Skills: Bodybuilding 71, Intimidation 51, Weapon (Lakan) 49, Philosophy 48
Gnosis: None
Additional Info: Arikamiss was born and raised in Riverfall and is the Elder of his bloodline and very extensive family. Despite his massive build and intimidating demeanor, he considers himself an intellectual, and is rarely seen without seen without a book on politics or philosophy. His family continually pushes him to vie for the Council when a spot opens, but he has refused for decades.

Personally, he is extremely soft-spoken, to the point of being considered antisocial. Both halfs of his personality have long since found a good balance, and while both enjoy the philosophy that occupies their time, Akarcha is a severe cynic. Arikamiss has previously admitted to having long, existential, mental conversations with Akarcha while minding the door to Beautiful Things.

Arikamiss’s one open soft spot is for Fuffa and Furfur. Even years after he started working at the shop, he will attempt to get one of the pair to play with him, or to allow a cuddle.

Gnosis: 1 Sylir, 1 Tyveth

Pel Rickenbacher had great plans on becoming a famous musician and wandering the world, performing his upbeat, whimsical pieces for the populous. Unfortunately by his twenty fifth birthday he found that dream wasn’t even able to pay for the food his stomach needed to sustain his body. Thus, at the behest of his disappointed parents, he joined the Syliran Knights. A far better Knight than the musician he wished to be, the dark, curly haired Syliran has done well for himself and has been in charge of the Glynstein Master Station for almost five years. Passionate and jovial, Pel is always up for gifting a man or woman a song from his trusty lute.


 
Rynn
Image

Race: Kelvic Crimson Jay
DoB: 500 AV
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Bondmate to Riharo
Skills: Climbing 30, Hunting 10, Singing 35, Storytelling 20
Gnosis: None

Happy-go-lucky and always flitting about the shop, Rynn is the Nakivak to Riharo, and has been with him since early in the year 511 AV. Rynn is a kelvic, her true form being that of a Crimson Jay, and when she's not flying around the cliffs of Riverfall with Riharo, she can be found tending the store selling climbing gear and giving advice to potential customers.

Biography

Rynn was born in the year 510 AV to two kelvic parents living in the Sea of Grass just ouside Riverfall. She grew quickly and left her family, intrigued by the handsome blue men of the city, and it wasn't long before she agreed to be a Nakivak. Riharo was one of the first men to come see her, and after several tries, she finally conceived his child. Unfortunately fate did not smile on them, and the child was lost mid-term, but Riharo did not give up, and soon another child was conceived. Rynn moved in with Riharo shortly after, and began helping run his business. She has hopes that Riharo will marry her, allowing her to stay with him forever.

ImagePersonality

Rynn is energetic and all over the place, loves to sing, and is always moving. When she has no customers to tend to, she flits about the shop straightening and cleaning things that probably don't need to be straightened or cleaned. She has a short attention span, but despite her flighty demeanor, one may find that she knows a great deal about the cliffs her customers hope to climb. If one can hold her attention long enough, they will find her to be of great use in preparing for their climb.

Image
Name: Nivasa
Race: Konti
DoB: 415 AV (98)
PoB: Mura
Title: Nakivak of Lars Varkas and Lanas Aswin
Skills: Sewing 64, Weaving 53, Fortune Telling 47
Gnosis: 1 Avalis

Nivasa serves Lars Varkas and Lanas Aswin and has given them three Akalak sons, three Konti daughters and a male Akontak. Nivasa is considered a permanent fixture in Lars and Lanas' lives as well as the lives of their dark brothers. Nivasa owns a small seamstress shop and is very clever with a needle and in making her own fabrics.

Woredev and Lityis Icarvu
Image
Name: Woredev Icarvu
Race: Akalak
DoB: The 32nd of the Summer Season, 340 AV
PoB: Riverfall, Cyphrus Region
Title: Champion of Riverfall
Skills: Weapon: Mace 75; Dual Wielding: Mace 57; Unarmed Combat 48; Dance 48; Weapon: Dagger 24
Additional Info: Woredev Icarvu and his other half Lityis have a good working relationship. Where Woredev is a rather externally jovial sociopath, Lityis is an emotional wreck prone to violent outbreaks of rage. The latter is none too intelligent either, finding his constant subjugation, humiliation, and exploitation at Woredev's hands frustrating. The dominant half holds a vicious control over Lityis, manipulating the lesser Akalak into position and releasing his rage and frustration upon opponents. Woredev will force Lityis into submission for weeks on end, ridiculing his ignorance until breaking point. Then when the day of the fight comes, Lityis unleashes the pent up rage upon whatever happens to be available. Needless to say, between Woredev's cunning and Lityis' anger, this pair has proven to be a valuable asset to the city. Despite the dominant half's utter lack of compassion, to most others he appears to be extremely happy. Woredev has not a shred of guilt.

 
Aerus and Getteri Thre
Image
Name: Aerus Thre
Race: Akalak
DoB: The 33rd of the Spring Season, 281 AV
PoB: Riverfall, Cyphrus Region
Title: Champion of Riverfall
Skills: Weapon: Lakan 67; weapon: Trident 56; Weapon: Net 45; Dual Wield (Net & Spear) 43; Shield 40; Unarmed Combat 40
Additional Info: Aerus and his other half Getteri are more often than not in sync. They trade on and off smoothly when in battle, allowing one to rest their nerves and observe while the other fights. Getteri is naturally more cynical and thoughtful than Aerus, and is considered the better strategic mind and calculator of the two. On the other hand, the latter is a better fighter, for Getteri manifested later in his childhood and missed much training. Even after he appeared though, most practice was done with neither half truly in control, so once more Getteri received a poor education. At first the two had many troubles, and came close to killing several of his brethren, and indeed they never truly came to a conclusion over who was dominant. Instead, over time, their personalities began to sync more as childhood dropped off and they faced their adult life as a warrior. A century ago, Aerus managed to sire his first child and attain the rank of Esteemed.

 
Urvinisic and Norivek
Image
Name: Urvinisic
Race: Akalak
DoB: The 3rd of the Spring Season, 341 AV
PoB: Riverfall, Cyphrus Region
Title: Nakivak Hunter
Skills: Tracking 54; Hunting 43; Riding 31; Weapon: Light Crossbow 30; Poison 26; Weapon: Weighted Net 26
Additional Info: Young and brash, Urvinisic has had many troubles in his life. Neither he nor his other half, Norivek, could truly be considered good people. Where Urvinisic is short tempered and belligerent, the other is apathetic at best. As such, Urvinisic often takes over in situations, because his brother can rarely be bothered. Shortly after Urvinisic had turned 44, he was arrested and tried for petty theft from the city. He faced Woredev Icarvu in the arena, and received two broken bones and extreme humiliation from the man in addition to a season of servitude to the city for his crime. A year later, Urvinisic made an attempt on Woredev's life for the slights regarding his honor. Needless to say, the attempt was foiled and Woredev punished the offender once more. Urvinisic made two more attempts on Woredev, the third culminating in his punisher demanding the council expel him as Cerulean. Now, the Oathmaster has recruited Urvinisic for his tracking and hunting skills to chase down the Nakivak who choose to run. Due to the fact that Nakivak can be tracked via their bracelets, no Nakivak has escaped as of yet.

❖ The Cerulean ❖

 
Venkork
Image
Name: Venkork
Race: Akalak
DoB: Spring 54, 245 AV, 267 years
PoB: Riverfall
Title: Cerulean
Skills: Lakan 67, Leadership 54, Unarmed Combat 46, Stealth 42, Investigate 37
Gnosis: Night Stalking: 1

Venkork has been a Cerulean for much of his life, after his darker brother took a strong hold at a young age, and has never since relented. After several years of crimes, violence, and emotional outbursts, Venkork was branded Cerulean, and sent to the outpost. At first, he simply fell into line with the protection of the city from the outskirts, still losing control, but being maintained by his brethren within. After a handful of decades, Venkork found himself among the upper end of the unofficial hierarchy of the Cerulean, and used the ruins as his own personal meditation and training ground. He is one of the few members that can fight the Ajiazac and live to tell the tale.

He has a gruff demeanor, and is often easily annoyed when approached. He's not the type to go teaching, but he is a natural leader. This means he's likely to berate newcomers and tell them to improve and will not acknowledge them until they do. But in a true combat situation, he is often at the forefront of the fight, taking on enemies alongside his charges. Those who've worked alongside him for a while will begin to notice that he has a tendency to take on more enemies if it means protecting those around him. He doesn't have much respect for anyone higher ranking than him, and is quick to show it. The only exception is to the Council of Elders, because he has no desired to be truly exiled.
