Denizens of Disaster (Public City/Mentor NPCs)

Sat Sep 01, 2018 4:51 pm



This thread will serve as a general repository for any City and Mentor NPCs who are publicly available for use throughout the city of Quacia and its surrounding areas. These NPCs are available for anyone to use, and do not require the explicit permission of any of the city Storytellers or Developers to use.

On the subject of Magic Mentor NPCs, it is required that any Magic Initiators be sent through the PSF for creation. After these have been approved, you are more than welcome to use them for furthering your abilities, but they will not be included on this list as they are a more personalized form of NPC. They are also not be used for personal quests, and are instead merely present to initiate and improve one's ability in a magical skill.

If you have any submissions to make for City or Mentor NPCs for the city, feel free to submit these characters Here in the official city development forum.

As a further note, this list is not comprehensive for every single NPC in the city and excludes any personal NPCs that are attached to individual characters as well as any NPCs which would require moderator authorization to use, such as those found in the Factions thread.

Thank you and happy hunting,
Tyrant

Big
Image
Name: Big
Race: Human
Age: 1st of Ymiden, 700
Moderation Type: Self (If in New Haven)
Able/Willing to Mentor?: No
Other Information:

Big was born in New Haven, and named for rather grandiose expectations. However, Big left these expectations a little behind him. Always a late bloomer, Big was nearly always a solid two inches shorter than the other boys in his age group, always a little bit behind. While his training with a quarterstaff wasn't awful, it was no where near the caliber hoped for or expected by Big's parents.

Big was born to a destiny, and that destiny should have become of paramount concern. However, Big was almost consistently a disappointment, and never recognized as a candidate for Reception. This, ordinarily, would not be a big issue. However, being the son of a master of The Gift, it warranted concern.

Shatter
Image
Name: Shatter
Race: Human
Age: 15th of Vhalar, 693
Moderation Type: Self (If on New Haven)
Able/Willing to Mentor?: Yes
Skills able/willing to Mentor in: Expert Polearms (Quarterstaff)
Other Information:

In New Haven, a child is named for the qualities their parents wish them to have, or perhaps, occasionally, for the abilities the parents hope their child possesses. This individual was named aptly.

This individual was named Shatter.

Once a candidate for Reception, Shatter, standing at 6'4", was deemed too quick to anger by the masters of The Gift. An individual with such rage should not be allowed the power The Gift can provide.

Ironically, this made Shatter angrier.

Shatter, if he was not already, became angrier, more dedicated to his craft, and if he was not already, became the strongest fighter on the island. Absolutely merciless in his battles, but not without companionship. Those who managed to beat him became his best friends, and were nearly inseparable.

Shatter doesn't have many friends.

Kind

Image
Name: Kind
Race: Human
Age: 14th Vhalar, 701
Moderation Type: Self, in New Haven
Able/Willing to Mentor?: No
Other Information: The naming convention of New Haven is peculiar.

Children are named for qualities their parents wish them to have. Often times, those individuals adopt some definition of their name into their personality in some way, shape, or form.

The world is made better that Kind has taken her namesake to heart.

Kind lived a modest life, and her parents were not names of great respect within New Haven. They worked, but neither as hard as they could have. New Haven, since its founding, has grown to be a successful town, and the sign of their success can be seen by way of it allowing its citizens to take breaks from their work.

In recent generations, however, some individuals have taken advantage of this system, and become reliant on the fruits of others labors.

This is the environment Kind was born into.

Kind, like any other child born into New Haven, has a prophecy attached to them upon birth, a concept tied to their future that they are forever expected to live up to. A loose definition, but one that must be kept.

Kind knew this.

And Kind embraced it.

She chose, early, after meeting others of her age and meeting the other citizens of New Haven, after comparing their way of life with that of her parents', she made a judgement call.

She wasn't going to be her parents.

She was going to be a model citizen.

And so she was. She worked hard. She was generous with what little fruits of her labor that she earned, always valuing the safety and well-being of others over her own. She became what her name demanded she become.

And for that, she was rewarded with Reception.

Not yet a master, Kind attached herself with the oceans, and the waves. She loves her town, becoming independent at a much earlier age than most. She is a model citizen, but unfortunately, nothing more than that.

Deliberate

Image
Name: Deliberate
Race: Human
Age: 5th of Vhalar, 698
Moderation Type: Self, if in New Haven
Able/Willing to Mentor?: No
Other Information: Deliberate was raised, unlike most in New Haven, to fill a specific purpose. While most were raised with a hope for purpose, a desire by their parents to find worth for themselves, Deliberate was born with a purpose in mind.

Deliberate was not born to meditate. She wasn't born to become adept at quarterstaff combat, nor was she born in the hopes of becoming a candidate for Reception. Not all children can fill those same few roles; some must be born with a separate identity in mind.

This is Deliberate.

Deliberate is a planner. She's an organizer. Deliberate was born to be a leader, not on the order of the Masters of the Gift, but on the order of a town leader. She leads production. She rallies troops. She assigns tasks, and sees them through.

Perhaps others might see Deliberate as an unnecessary individual, a waste of resources. If she did not aspire to receive the Gift, what use could she be?

But Deliberate never asked these questions.

No, Deliberate knows that, without her, New Haven would be worse than it is with her.

Ildred Gallows
break

NPC NAME

Image

Name: Ildred Gallows
Race: Human
Date of Birth: 23rd of Ashan arc 697
Moderation Type: (Self, Modded)
Able/Willing to Mentor?: Only within those businesses in the good graces of the Guilds. She will not train independent farmers or civilians.
Skills able/willing to Mentor in: Animal Husbandry, Animal Training, Butchering, Agriculture.
Other Information: A thwarthog rancher from Scalvoris, she runs one of the more successful operations in the Plenty. Her hogs are happy, intelligent, and excessively fertile. Her ability to provide for the city above has granted her a degree of leeway in the way she conducts her business, in addition to some seduction and bribery on the side to give her even more freedom.

Rubenesque and vivacious like the thwarthogs she raises, she entertains a good number of gentleman callers, even some among the lesser nobility. She has brown hair, green eyes, and stands rather tall for a human woman at 5'11". Her clothes are well cared for, and her nose is quite often powdered to perfection.

She is, however, excessively ambitious. Ildred has no qualms about driving smaller farms out of business, to the point where they must relinquish their land and animals to her, increasing her status.

Malvo du Gäap

Image
Name: Malvo Du Gäap
Race: Male
Age: 36th of Ashan, 680
Title: Musician & Composer
Moderation Type: Self
Able/Willing to Mentor?: Yes
Skills able/willing to Mentor in: Musical Instrument: Piano , Composing
Other Information: With a strong presence, and an aura of competence, Malvo is an intimidating man. His capacity to maintain a firm eye contact is enough to make anyone buckle, and his aristocratic looks often further diminish one's ability to speak their mind. Malvo's whole being screams he knows the only way things should be, and that nobody or nothing could change this fact. Despite this presence, Malvo is a withdrawn man that minds only his business. Famed for various compositions and piano pieces in the past, Malvo is a Quacian only few remember. Never benig big enough of a composer to have his name mean something, in the present moment the composer is hardly seen and even rarely heard. There is an unspoken truth about him circling around the circles of musicians, and that is that what were once beautiful melodies made from Malvo's hand had been corrupted by something dark and sinister, and so his pieces, once prized and whistled through the streets, have become as illusive as Malvo's involvement in Quacian issues.

The death of an artist is not as bad as the death of his legacy.

Veracity 'Vera' Du Gäap

Image
Name: Vera du Gäap
Race: Human
Age: 4th of Zi'da. 685
Title: Actress (Retired)
Moderation Type: Self
Able/Willing to Mentor?: No
Skills able/willing to Mentor in: Acting, but no.
Other Information: Vera was always a beautiful woman, a boon well-prized in the acting sphere. However, it wasn't good enough in Vera's case. Although on the rise throughout her career, Vera would one day vanish from the scene to never return, and so her mingling career was quick to vanish aswell, and all traces of it are dust. Her sudden departure from her professional ambitions carried over to her social life, becoming a figure that is only rarely seen. Vera is always remembered with having an extreme fondness of life, of being a devout member of the Scarlet Belief, and of having a big and compassionate heart. In the present moment, her name carries the same influence as the name of a stranger.

Theddas du Gäap

Image
Name: Theddas du Gäap
Race: Human
Age: 5th of Vahlar, 683
Title: Ambassador for the Seekers
Moderation Type: Self-
Able/Willing to Mentor?: Yes, but no initiations.
Skills able/willing to Mentor in: Empathy & Negotatiation
Other Information: Theddas likes the good life. Sweets? Yes. Tobacco? Yes. Women? A lot of yes. A true connoiseur of the pleasures of life, there are few, if any, activities or pleasures Theddas has indulged in. Not vicious in nature, he does so for the sake of 'living life to the fullest', as he is fond of saying. Charming, upbeat, and rarely without a smile, those are perhaps the reasons he's not quite respected with his colleges. Member of the Seekers from a young age, Theddas has somewhat forgotten his initial passion for magic to, instead, pursue the earthly pleasures. Even so, his word still carries some weight, no matter if often used to crack jokes and make roguish remarks.

Mother Margot du Gäap

Image
Name: Margot du Gäap
Race: Human
Age: 8th of Saun, 660
Title: Herald
Moderation Type: Self
Able/Willing to Mentor?: Yes
Skills able/willing to Mentor in: Politics & anything related to the Scarlet Belief
Other Information: Always with a cigarette close by, Margot is a strange Herald. There is a grace to her few can achieve, earned not through sophisticated mannerisms or figures of speech, but through a life of devotion and self-discovery. An old but affable woman, Margot's word carries a lot of weight, her presence hints she'll either help you if you really need it, or put you in your place if one's only looking for pity. Born and raised in Quacia, Margot became more and more devout the older she got, eventually joining the Theocratum's ranks. She never shared the inquisitive nature of the religious order, albeit she is no liberal either. Instead, her approach to heresy and lack of piousness is that of compassion and understanding. Perhaps once this could've caused trouble for her, but Margot's consistency and honesty towards her positions earned her the respect of both her superiors and those under her purview. Semi-retired as she is due to her growing illness (surely related to tobacco), Margot's house still has its doors open, and she keeps mentoring young Tribunals as well as receiving those that have faith issues.

Nalasi Ej'qy

Image
Name: Nalasi Ej'qy
Race: Biqaj
Age: 22 (30 Saun of 696)
Title: Lair Crawler
Moderation Type: Self
Able/Willing to Mentor?: Yes (in exchange for gold).
Skills able/willing to Mentor in:
Strong: Lock Picking, Pick Pocketing.
Moderate: Stealth.
Mild: Blades (Daggers), Unarmed Combat. (she's still learning)
Vahanic (primary), Rakahi, and Common language.
Other Information: Nalasi lives in Shanty, though she spends most of her time in Lair. She will come upside to Gleam if paid to do so. She is a citizen of Quacia, born to a Viceman and a lady-of-the-night and raised between Lair and Shanty depending on where her mother located over the years. Nalasi is brusque, rude, and selfish... but under all her prickly demeanor, foul behavior, and youthful rage, she has a good heart in the end. It just takes a lot for her to show it. She often works at night, sleeps during the day. When she's on the job, she covers herself up with a wrapped scarf to hide her face and hair from sight and can most often be seen moving between the boundaries of neighborhoods while working for-hire on heists and random thuggery. She is a casual follower of the Scarlet Belief, only attending Blood Prayer about once annually.
