[Riverfall] The NPC Creation/Request Thread

Greetings Rivarians!

In the months to come I foresee many of us needing NPCs. Now since I don't have the NPC library completed there is no one real source to go to for NPC characters. During NaNo and beyond I have a feeling that people are going to be wanting to use NPCs frequently throughout Riverfall and absolutely NO ONE wants to wait for me to give them one or approve one. So, in the light of that happening, I'm giving everyone free reign to create NPCs. All you have to do to make them legitmate is to submit them here. I will then add a note to your post if I make any changes to stats, and where I'm going to have them be employed if you do not state a place. These will be city npcs so you don't need to follow the NPC rules in the wiki. In addition, this thread is not for PERSONAL NPCs. Personal NPCs need to go through the help desk and be added to your SS threads.

Within this thread, you can also request NPCs. If you make a request, anyone can create you an NPC and post it here - myself included. It will be based on ic needs and RF Culture.

NPC submissions must be in the format below and include an image that is 200x200 pixils wide.

So, if you need an obscure type of person that isn't already developed, place them here and start playing them. I'll be along shortly thereafter and I will let you know if I make any corrections. :)

[Riverfall] The NPC Creation/Request Thread

Postby Gossamer on December 14th, 2012, 5:52 pm

NPCs in storage... they need avatars and proper formatting.

This is a partial list of the NPC's of Riverfall other ST's have created but I haven't gotten around to filecarding and plugging into the library yet. Ignore the format, they'll be changed out soon. This list will be added to a great deal and changed up as need requires and times change. If you have any requests for the NPC list, please contact Gossamer or a Riverfall Staff Member for assistance. NPCs can also be submitted to a Riverfall Storyteller to be added to the list.


Elder Councilors :
Sidifi Taktian_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 308
Position: Councilor
Skills: Intelligence 73, Interrogation 48, Writing 36
Other: It is said that Sidifi Taktian knows everything there is to know about Riverfall, and is exceedingly proud of it. He is exceptionally in tune with his city, and often works as a liaison between those with questions and those with answers. Many times one can find him consulting with a citizen (or a contact), writing notes at fever pace in one of his many journals.



Dunali Cenandros_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 264
Position: Councilor
Skills: Weaponry: Lakan 70, Teaching 58, Philosophy 29
Other: The youngest member of the council is Dunali Cenandros. Originally a warrior of note, Dunali retired his Lakan after a near fatal accident with a Kimenth. Now he has turned his interests toward the welfare of Riverfall while pursuing more scholarly skills.


Uratto Janarnys_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 422
Position: Councilor
Skills: Philosophy 83, Teaching 65, Politics 50
Other: In contrast to Dunali, Uratto is the oldest member of the council. His interests lay primarily in the educational, and the theoretical "what ifs" that may plague the city. He has formed a strong friendship with Dunali Cenandros, even mentoring the younger councilor as his interests have shifted. Many other Akalak joke about Uratto being the stereotypical old sage, and the councilor certainly does nothing but encourage the perspective. Indeed, Uratto is a rather content and light hearted individual in his old age, having come to terms with his other half many years ago.


Butros Jovai_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 225
Position: Councilor
Skills: History 84; Archaeology 63; Auristics 58; Writing 28
Other: Butros Jovai is, among other things, the only councilor who studies a form of magic. Given, Butros studies auristics which is one of the less studious and demanding disciplines. Despite being known as a "The Magician Councilor", Butros is first and foremost a historian and archaeologist. In his youth he had spent a great deal of time searching for clues and methods to discover the old city of Valkalah. After his father died and he became an elder, Butros settled down to life in Riverfall and sired a child. Eventually, the Jovai elder became part of the elder council, lending his invaluable skills and wisdom to the board. He is often slow to speak, and usually views the aura of a subject as a method of first impression. Like Sidifi, he keeps several journals (of less detail) where he jots notes on various auras and their developments.


Sinecus Horve_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 372
Position: Councilor
Skills: Cartography 85; Navigation 64; History 45
Other: While of a different generation than Butros, Sinecus also was interested in rediscovering the location of Valkalah. While most of his time in the present has been taken over by running the city of Riverfall, studying old maps and clues from historical texts occupies much of his free time. Quite often he can be found at the academy when not at his home or the council chambers. He is good friends with Butros, as they share a very common interest. Sinecus also maintains close relations with Sidifi, though it is unknown as to whether this is merely a political interest or not. Generally Sinecus is extroverted, more than willing to speak his piece on whatever topic is at hand. He tends to think out loud as well, often muttering to himself when thinking or studying.



Tiber Revnaj_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 402
Position: Councilor
Skills: Anthropology 79; Interrogation 43; Lakan 40; Writing 39
Other: An aficionado of other cultures, Tiber strives (much to his chagrin, often) to bring a sense of the world to Riverfall. Although he has subtly prodded the council for many years to make building connections with other cultures a concern, his agenda has never really been taken up. Despite this, he is still a great boon to the other council members when dealing with foreigners or even day to day tasks. Tiber has been waiting patiently for these years, growing old, and now his patience grows thin in his elderly years. More recently he has increased his pressures, but little progress has been made as the council generally has more pressing concerns.



Lorvet Quiavec_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 397
Position: Councilor
Skills: Business 83; Accounting 67; History 53; Unarmed Combat 57
Other: An eager student of business, Lorvet Quaivec is in charge of many of the business aspects of Riverfall. He is the primary councilor others will look to when asking for sound business advice, and has planned many of the contracts prospective entrepreneurs now hold. One particular interest of his is Alahean business practices, and one day he wishes to implement them into Riverfall. Unlike several other councilors, Lorvet is adamant about not only maintaining but improving upon the combative skills he learned in his youth.



Genvisv Utovosm_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 349
Position: Councilor
Skills: Negotiaton 87; Interrogation 76; Storytelling 54
Other: Genvisv is by far the most forthright of the councilors. He is blunt, extroverted, and talkative. Many often call him "the Vanthan Akalak" because of his storytelling and people skills (he also speaks Vani). It is said that once a person has sat down with Genvisv, there is nothing he cannot extract from you. His calm sincerity makes it easy for him to make friends, though the fact that he is a councilor often puts people off occasionally. Genvisv's social skills surpass even those of Nevar Chivan's, though he lacks the same touch of leadership.



Wolcirkm Javelis_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 311
Position: Councilor
Skills: Seduction 67; Politics 53; Lakan 45; Dual Wield 40
Other: Fascinated with the practices of Ahnatep at a young age, and determined to see that his city never make the same mistakes, Wolcirkm has since expanded his studies to other political centers. Whether it be the martial states like Syliras, the intricate hierarchies of Ahnatep, or those cities ran by deities such as Alvadas, Wolcirkm makes it a point to know at least something about them. He maintains close ties with Tiber despite the large gap in their ages, often having long and drawn out discussions regarding the various cities of Mizahar. Wolcirkm also landed his position on the council by having an inordinate number of children- simply put many females have been wooed by him


Combative :
Mos'rila_____
Race: Human
Age: 39
Position: Proprietor of Godiva's Refuge, Martial Arts Expert
Skills: Unarmed Combat 65; Massage 58; Business 45; Singing 40
Gnosis: 1 Wysar
Other: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).


Sohryn Nurhahj_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 172
Position: Weapons Instructor at the Kendoka Sasaran
Skills: Spear 69; Javelin 47; Bo Staff 45
Other: 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 down. Sohryn is the dominant half, yet small amounts of stress tend to cause Reveric to stir.


Woredev Icarvu_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 173
Position: Champion of Riverfall
Skills: Mace 75; Dual Wielding: Mace 57; Unarmed Combat 48; Dance 48; Dagger 24
Other: Woredev Aerus 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 Thre_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 232
Position: Champion of Riverfall
Skills: Lakan 67; Trident 56; Net 45; Dual Wield (Net & Spear) 43; Shield 40; Unarmed Combat 40
Other: 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_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 172
Position: Nakivak Hunter
Skills: Tracking 54; Hunting 43; Riding 31; Light Crossbow 30; Poison 26; Weighted Net 26
Other: 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.



Artisan :
Haiduk_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 156
Position: Head Weaponsmith
Skills: Weaponsmithing 87; Weaponry: Lakan 58; Blacksmithing 36; Rhetoric 24
Other: Rather reserved. Allows Ureig, his other half, out when not working.


Jacinkto Valereig_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 183
Position: Jeweler
Skills: Jeweling 76; Lakan 28; Riding 20; Land Navigation 20
Other: 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.


Loriim_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 122
Position: Head Armorsmith
Skills: Armorsmithing 92; Metalworking 57; Meditation 34
Other: Has extreme control over his other half, Belladus. A little bit introverted but still tries to enjoy company


Tuvos Jerusc_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 394
Position: Undanas
Skills: Metalsmithing 84; Medicine 67; Interrogation 48; Observation 45
Other: 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.



Magical :
Vincent Callatori_____
Race: Human
Age: 61
Position: Reimancer
Skills: Reimancy 76; Glyphing 47; Voiding 39; Plant Identification 26; Herbalism 18
Other: 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.



Miscellaneous :
Acadius Suari_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 137
Position: Librarian at Valkalah Academy
Skills: Writing 79; Observation 46; History 26
Other: Unquestioning, he will attempt to puzzle out motives on his own. Acadius is usually introverted and reserved around strangers, though still sincerely wishes to help. His younger brother is Renvalatai Suari.


Chell_____
Race: Human
Age: 29
Position: Waitress at the Kulkukan Tavern
Skills: Negotiation 39; Brewing 20; Seduction 17
Other: Amiable like Nystir, flirtish with customers.


Huorin Jerus_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 283
Position: Coordinator of the Riverfall Orchestra
Skills: Instrument (Violin) 78; Teaching 53; Instrument (Piano) 54; Instrument (Trumpet) 47
Other: Ever extroverted and passionate, Huorin Jerus has worked long and hard to achieve the position he is in right now. Given his lack of troubles with his other half, Yourus, Huorin has become a relatively respected Akalak for both his talents and stability.


Nystir_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 97
Position: Head Bartender/Waiter at the Kulkukan Tavern
Skills: Bartending 63; Rhetoric 59; Business 37; Brewing 30
Other: Very Amiable, enjoys the company of others


Karkaus Vorin_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 174
Position: Head Chef at the Baha'Tian Resort
Skills: Cooking 85; Philtering 56; Poison 40
Other: Karkaus can be rather difficult to get along with. His temper is renowned in his kitchen and the resorts in general, and one of the only reasons he is kept is because of his almost legendary skill as a chef. He has what must be a veritable batallion of cooks in training beneath him, scurrying around to serve customers and work the line. He does private catering, and though the affair usually has to go exactly as he plans it, the events are usually notable for their excellent food. Karkaus usually charges extremely cheaply for his services because his salary at Baha'Tian is rather large, and it allows him to do one of the only things he actually enjoys. Very few people have ever seen Karkaus' other side, Giohvoz, though those that have say he is rather subdued where Karkaus' is grouchy and difficult.


Renvalatai Suari_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 92
Position: Chef (Bastani Bakery)
Skills: Cooking 59; Herbalism 29; Philtering 28
Other: A generally amiable fellow, Renvalatai is seen as a chef on the rise in Riverfall. He is not near as skilled as Karkaus, but he did serve a stint as the older Akalak's apprentice. Renvalatai is easy going and confident, so much so that he became one of the few apprentices Karkaus maintains a friendship with. Even though Renvalatai is pleasant, Yori manifests when he becomes stressed or boxed in (particularly if it is in the kitchen). Where his other side is compassionate and relaxed, Yori is anxious, stressed, and snappy. Renvalatai currently provides catering services only, and works in tandem with the Bastani Bakery. If one wishes to contract him for an event, it is quickest to go to the bakery and inquire about him, and the proprietor make note for Renvalatai. It is seen as an unfortunate fact of business that Renvalatai must charge significantly more than other catering services, because his practice is still so small with no other means of income.


Tinerhun Jevoi_____
Race: Akalak
Age: 139
Position: Riverfall Archivist
Skills: Accounting 59; Writing 44; Business 39; Spear 38
Other: Tinerhun Jevoi has issues. A majority of the time, his other half Yoric is content to allow him to go about his daily activities in the Labor Aid. This is because despite the fact that Yoric loves battle, he is not skilled at it and could hardly make a living as a warrior. So whenever Tinerhun gets a moment of free time, Yoric wrenches control from him and runs off to practice with his beloved spear. Tinerhun himself is rather introverted, while Yoric is brash and belligerent. So despite the fact that Tinerhun is vastly more intelligent than his counterpart, he often finds himself overwhelmed by his presence.


Nalana Gracefoot Image
Age: 24
Race: Drykas
Height: 5’1”
Weight: 98 lbs.

Skills:
Acrobatics: 77
Contortionism: 68
Construction: 23
Evasion: 42
Teaching: 39

Biography:
For reasons known only to her, Nalana left the Drykas and sought out her own path in life. Her travels didn’t carry her far from the tent city, however, as she soon found herself wondering the streets of Riverfall. She often found herself being propositioned by many of the warrior race, but turned all of them down. It wasn’t long before she found herself using the free time offered by Godiva’s Refuge to figure out what she would be doing with her life next.

Late one night, within the sands of the Arena, Nalana set to practicing something she had always been known for since growing up: Acrobatics and Tumbling. Her body rolled along the ground like a willow in the wind, barely disturbing the ground. She flipped through the air like a feather free flowing, drawing the attention of more than a few Akalak spectators. Many of them suspected that with a short running start, the Drykas woman could have vaulted over their tallest of their race with ease. Finally, one of them approached, inquiring how she managed to land along the ground with so little impact. She didn’t know how to explain to the Akalak, who’s bodies were generally to stiff and solid muscle what it meant to be to bend the body and soar through the air. In the end, she just replied simple with, “Practice.”

What surprised her next was the fact that the Akalak next asked her to teach him, rather than beginning to proposition her to sire his child. As time progressed, Nalana found herself teaching more and more Akalak. While they couldn’t really flip or vault through the air like she could, many of them began to roll with a fall and tumble around obstacles with increasing proficiency. As time passed further, her reputation increased among Riverfall society, as did the revelation that she was a contortionist. The ability to bend her body and dislocate joints in such ways that she could slip into tight places and slip out of bonds did not go unnoticed, especially among the Cerulean of Riverfall. And so, with a steady supply of students, all wishing to learn such skills to improve their own abilities out in the field. However, she hadn’t built her own place for which to train such students, rather she remained and could be contacted in Godiva’s Refuge, preferring to work with the students in an environment they were comfortable with.

Personality:
Upbeat and energetic, Nalana is willing to teach anyone in Riverfall, as well as speak of anything save for why she left her Pavilion and Endrykas overall. She tends to take a slow pace with them, letting students get comfortable and discovering how their body can move in ways they hadn’t thought of before. She shows the patience of the Elders in her teaching and often tells students bluntly what they are lacking or doing wrong, forcing them to repeat the process several times over until they get it right. This is mainly due to the fact that she knows if such moves were performed wrong while in a fight, out in harsher lands, that the student would likely end up breaking a bone.

While she doesn’t often admit it, a glimmer of pride can be seen in her eyes when she teaches, and an almost maternal, nurturing tone. It could be that many of her students she sees as children she never had, those she is passing her own legacy onto.


Groups :
Valkalah Academy Musicians Compact_____
Location: Valkalah Academy
Leader: Huorin Jerus
Notable Members: Ickavir Rewore (Director of Orchestra 1 (Beginning Class)); Quarieo Quorin (Director of Orchestra 2 (Advanced Class))
Services: Musical Events, Instrumental Training
Entry Requirement: Instrument (Any) 25, Enrollment at the Valkalah Academy
Other: They will attend musical events and provide a full orchestra, the cost for this is relatively cheap unless you do not provide catering for the band members. There are different prices for the orchestras, depending on the level of the class you wish to rent. Rates stand at 125 gold to rent the entire beginning orchestra, and 350 gold for the entire advanced class. Half bands and other assemblies are available for negotiation as well in the case that an event does not desire an entire orchestra. It is advised to keep in mind that the beginning class may not give a perfect showing.


Special Group :
The Six
Loacation: Vantath Ralo Sasaran
Leader: No leader, all of them consider each other equal
Notable Members[b]: See below
[b]Services
: Teaching in multiple skills, most notably various Unarmed Combat styles

Info: This Six are a group of highly skilled individuals who recently took up residence and offered to teach their skills to students coming to the Vantath Ralo. While they most notably teach in Unarmed forms of Combat with Isa teaching primarily weapon skills, the other skills they are knowledgeable in are also offered for teaching. Their fees are often negotiable, and isn't always monetary, as it is decided by each teacher what they will ask for in return for the knowledge they impart. There are a few who suspect they have arrived for a more specific purpose, but what that purpose is no one really knows save for perhaps the Elder Council. In the end, the group has been allowed to stay, provided they offer their teachings free of charge to Akalak students of the Council's choosing.

The Six:
ImageName: The Elder (real name unknown)
Race: Suspected Human
Height: 6’
Weight: 200 lbs
Age: Unknown

"There is a fine line between what you want, and what you need."

A Brief Glimpse: Not much is known about The Elder, except for the fact that he brought The Six together, and each one of them respect him greatly. Silent and often smiling, when The Elder is around, he can often be seen peering over those of his group or students they may be teaching. He himself has never taken on a student or disciple, but rather is found offering enlightening advice that sometimes makes surprises even Tarth. Of The Six, The Elder is the one who is most often absent, going on what he calls his “Pilgrimages” that sees him absent from the group for days on end, the longest of which was an entire year.

Much of The Elder’s life is shrouded in mystery, and it would cause many who stand outside the group to be cautious of him. The rest of The Six, however, trust him implicitly, and none of them have wavered in that trust. If there was a leader among their group, they would consider The Elder the most likely one, and almost a fatherly type of figure to them at times.

Skills:
Due to his absences, and any serious lack of involvement in actual training, little is known about what The Elder is truly capable of.

About The Elder’s Unarmed Combat: There is hardly anyone outside of The Six who has witnessed The Elder fight, and those outside of the group who have are either dead, or could not seem to recall exactly how they were beaten. When asked, any of the other members will tell you to simply not ask, that his skill is beyond even them. In the end, they can only say that he has seemed to display the perfect defense, and that no mortal strike, be it magical or physical, can land upon him.

ImageName: Torth
Race: Jamoura
Height: 7’ 3”
Weight: 550 lbs
Age: 583 Years old

“What you do with your life, reflects the kind of individual you are."

A Brief Glimpse: Patient, calm and philosophical, Torth is a individual who never seems to be in a hurry. He has spent most of his life to the gathering of knowledge and skills that he feels has helped him find a deeper understanding of himself. Such has lead him to live a very pacifistic lifestyle, where is rarely ever times where he is seen angry or harsh, and for the most part, that also extended to those who would threaten him. More than a few have even heard him talking calmly with people who would take his life, stating with a smile, “I have no desire to bully you.” As such, he has let a majority of those he has had conflict with live, though they may have, after the ordeal, wish they were not alive.

Skills:
Philosophy - 72
Medicine: 44
Sculpting - 33
Calligraphy - 22
Construction - 58
Wilderness Survival - 40
Teaching - 62
Hand to Hand - 95

About Torth’s Unarmed Combat - Consisting of holds and throws, Torth’s style focus’ on his own philosophy of passiveness, manipulating a person’s center of gravity and the natural reaction for the body to move itself away from pain. Very rarely will you see his large hands balling into a fist and striking someone, especially when he can use so very little effort to twist and hand and see that person flipping their own body over in order to avoid having their own wrist broken. Other times, simple momentum will do the work. In the end, his style becomes so fluid that he rarely has to exert much energy to defeat a foe as most of their aggression will do the work for him.

ImageName: Dral Roeph
Race: Human
Height: 6’2”
Weight: 243 lbs
Age: 38 Years Old

“Strength is merely a matter of perspective. As is weakness. Never view it as a simple black and white point of view.”

A Brief Glimps: Stand offish some may call him, abrasive others would. Dral is a human who tends to look adversity dead in the eyes and then spit in its face. Quite often, it has caused people to believe that he is confrontational, but in reality he is a man who lives his life to the fullest whenever he can, even if it means going out and seeking that dangerous thrill from time to time in order to get his adrenalin flowing. This is sometimes countered by his habitual drinking. Though he never seriously appears to be drunk most of the time, he is still just as often found with a drink in his hand, save for when he himself is training or teaching another. The few who have managed to get past his bad habits has found him to be a kind and caring person, to the point that if someone has hurt someone he cares for, they’ll generally have to pull him off of an adversary as he gives in to a bit of his own rage in retribution.

Skills:
Drinking - 65
Body Building - 42
Rhetoric - 38
Teaching - 53
Wilderness Survival - 23
Hand to Hand - 95
Intimidation - 20
Tattooing - 15

About Dral’s Unarmed Combat - Strong punches and shifting body, Dral’s style may seem simplistic to some, but those who have been on the receiving end of such strikes knows it is anything but. Developed primarily for defense, especially against armed opponents, Dral’s style focus’ on deflecting weapon attacks while at the same time following through with a strong punch that has all of one’s body weight put into that strike. While some kicks are involved, they are generally involved at the tail end of a combination string of attacks.

ImageName: Isa of The Silent Death
Race: Myrian
Height: 6’
Weight: 160 lbs
Age: 35 Years Old

“One must master themselves before they can master their weapon.”

A Brief Glimps: Silent and reserved, Isa is not one to engage in witty banter with others. It may be that she feels a little out of place with those she travels with, it could be because of her culture as a Myrian, or it could be that common is just simply not her strong suit when it comes to languages. For whatever reason, it is difficult to tell as even the others she travels with find themselves unable to really form any significant bond, even to the point that she moves off on her own to eat during dinners or breakfast.

Back in her home, however, she is more renowned, having been a prodigy of the blade. To this day she is one of only a few that had managed to last in a one on one spar against Myri for longer than three chimes, and actually forced her on the defensive for three seconds during their spar. For her skill, Myri rewarded Isa by having Taloba’s prime Maledictor craft her a special blade, which would be later be known to be called The Whispering Cut.

For whatever reason Isa eventually left her homeland and began traveling with the current company she kept is not completely known, but it is known that Isa does have care for those she travels with, and respects them highly having faced each one individually to see if they were worthy.

Unarmed Combat - 25

About Isa’s Unarmed Combat - Being a prodigy of weapons, it is rare to actually see Isa fighting hand to hand with someone, which in some cases makes her the individual that seems out of place with the group. In reality, while she doesn’t fight unarmed, that’s not to say you won’t see any out of her while she’s fighting with weapons. The agility of her acrobatics often come into play when using unarmed combined with her weapon skills as it’s never all that uncommon to see her flipping backwards while throwing the tip of her foot into someone’s chin, or kicking strait out at an opponent trying to flank her side while she is thrusting her blade into someone in front of her. Many of her group have often said that, given time to develop such, her unarmed style could be one of the most unpredictable and advantageous of their styles, as you will often be unaware of where the next kick will come from.

ImageName: Lokoril Ironknees Vutros
Race: Isur
Height: 5’
Weight: 250 lbs
Age: 43

“Why do you not DODGE? It will hurt if you don’t!”

A Brief Glimps: Energetic and straightforward, Lokroil will often be found with a smile on his face, and it is one that others of his group have found to be infectious. Many find it hard to believe at times that he is actually an Isur, as his personality is often contrast to that of his culture, giving a warm greeting to those he meets and is easy to befriend. To his own people, this has made him a bit of a odd person, to the point that many other Isur might call him naïve at best, simpleton most often. His childlike embrace doesn’t waver however, even when he has been betrayed by someone who takes advantage of his openness and in the end he still believes that the world will one day become a better place. When not practicing one of his skills or teaching, Lokroil can often be found warming up to animals or playing with children, as he has a friendly fascination for both, further extending the contrast of warmth that is often reflected among Isur. That, combined with his skills in weaponsmithing may be the reasons why he seems to be the only one Isa seems to warm up to from time to time. If there is one true fault to Lokoril, it is that he has difficulties going easy on someone during training or sparring, even if it is one of his students.

Skills:
Weaponsmithing: 66
Masonry: 41
Animal Husbandry: 37
Wilderness Survival: 15
Carving: 52
Unarmed Combat: 95
Teaching: 43
Body Building: 48

About Lokoril’s Unarmed Combat - Due to his hardened skin and tough skeletal structure, Lokoril’s style often finds powerful strait strikes, often using the knees and elbows especially. This is due mainly to his shorter height as he often invades an opponents personal space, using such joints in confined combat. The strikes that he reigns down are powerful enough that they often dent armor and shatter unprotected bones.

ImageName: Yiru Atora
Race: Human
Height: 4’ 5”
Weight: 140 lbs
Age: 37

"I've learned, that in life, there is nothing entirely wrong with being yourself, being who you were meant to be. Just know that not everyone will like you for it."

A Brief Glimps - Fun loving, and a bit of a pervert, it’s easy to see why Yiru was one day banished from the city of Lhavit. While he did have total disciple and devotion in all aspects of his life there as a teacher to a handful of the would be Unarmed Prodigies there, his inability to remain proper around a beautiful woman eventually got him into trouble when he was one day caught fornicating with one of his students. Shamed and disowned, Yiru was forced to leave the city, never to return, or face a mortal punishment. At first, it brought him to a state of depression, and he would often find himself facing off against individuals that he would hope would one day end his life. One day however, he met Torth, and as the two spared for a bit, he found the Jamoura on even ground with him skills wise, while at the same time trying to get Yiru to talk about his death wish. Eventually the fighting stopped, and the two simply took the time to talk. It was then that Torth convinced him to look towards new horizons, and embrace who he was now, rather than cling to the life that would no longer welcome him. The two had been traveling ever since, and while Yiru is often called the “runt” of the six, he takes it in good humor and in them has found a new family. Even if, from time to time, he crosses the line with Isa and often has to defend himself from being beheaded from her blade.

Skills:
Running: 54
Cooking: 42
Acrobatics: 38
Unarmed Combat: 95
Negotiation: 27
Wilderness Survival: 15
Teaching: 75
Medicine: 30

About Yiru’s Unarmed Combat - Speed is often the key to Yiru’s fighting style as lightning fast punches and kicks are brought to his opponents, often striking three times to their one. While each individual strike in of itself isn’t as damaging as one from Lokoril or Dral, several strikes in the same place is just as debilitating. It is often thought, especially in Yiru’s case, that Flux is used in this style. However such is not the case, and Yiru himself frowns on those who use such to achieve such, calling the personal magic a crutch for the potential they could achieve through hard training alone.

We could really use a few mage NPCs for our masterlist. We're short on them for some reason... or mages are business owners and craftsman first...

Anyhow, give it a shot. Perk points are up for grabs for those who design some and use them.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Name: 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; 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).

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.

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.
