Devin

Image
Devin is relatively tall, standing at approximately 6'0", and he has a light and slim build. His skin is a warm ivory hue. It burns easily and hardly ever tans. Since an adventure in Ashan 718, his formerly black eyes are violet, with hints of almost blue, almost like two galaxies. He has full lips and slightly wavy, jet-black hair that he either wears tucked back behind his ears or tied back into a short ponytail. He is usually clean-shaven, mostly because he can’t seem to grow a sufficiently impressive beard, and he is not at all unpleasant to look at – if he wants to. He tends to move with confidence as well as a certain nonchalance, and there is often an amused and slightly mocking smile on his face, as if there is a secret that only he is privy to.

He has slender hands with long fingers that are just as good at wielding a weapon as they are at picking the pockets of the people around him or strumming the strings of a lute. In fact, when he’s off work, he can often be found in a tavern, playing his instrument and singing songs. His voice is in the baritone range, and it’s quite a bit deeper than people expect it to be, considering his slightly feminine appearance.

His style of clothing tends to vary wildly, depending on where he is, who he is with, what he does and who he pretends to be. He often wears a hat though as it's his favourite piece of clothing. He doesn't have any scars, and he hasn't broken any bones yet which is a rather fortunate coincidence considering his high risk lifestyle.

Since late 719 Devin has fancy black claw-like nails. The Grafter Rakvald made them from the spines that grow on a dubaebo's back and attached them to his hands.

► Show Spoiler
Devin doesn’t discriminate. He steals from everybody, from the rich, from the poor, from dark-skinned people, from light-skinned people, from blue-skinned people, from young people, from old people, from mages, from those that burn them, from Immortal-haters and from Immortal-lovers. He supports equal opportunities for everybody, and he wants to give everybody a chance to find out what being deprived of their possessions feels like.

He is daring, assertive and stubborn, he has a flair for the dramatic, and he’s extremely vain and sure of himself. These character traits often lead to him making decisions that have negative consequences for those that are unfortunate enough to be caught in the line of fire. He’s sarcastic and morbid and has a very strange sense of humour that is definitely not everybody’s cup of tea, but he is rarely truly malicious.

He doesn’t particularly care about most people and won't shed any tears if somebody dies, but he’s loyal to his friends. He also cares about his parents, even though he doesn't agree with everything they've taught him, and he regularly sends them gifts - things that he has stolen or bought with stolen money. Of course they don't know that. Sometimes it's better to keep people in the dark, for their own peace of mind.
1. Birth of a Thief

Not all criminals are orphans or come from a broken home. Devin was never abused, his parents were never drunk, and they didn’t use drugs either. They fed him, they treated him well, and they sent him to school so that he would learn something and be able to stand on his own two feet one trial. Nobody ever tried to murder them, and they didn’t die from a horrible disease either. On the contrary, they are still alive and well twenty-two arcs after Devin’s birth.

He is their only child. His parents wanted more children, but his mother was already over forty when he was born, and it was just not meant to be. They weren’t rich, but they had their own little house in Andaris. His father, Daniel, was a labourer, and his mother, Emma, worked as a servant in the house of a judge.

Devin was an active child. He loved to sing and dance, and he had a gift for languages as well. Had his parents been richer, they would have hired tutors to foster his talents, but they didn’t have that kind of money. They occasionally allowed him visit their neighbour though. He owned an old, beat-up lute, and he would sometimes let Devin play on it if he helped him with the work around the house. Since an accident he had trouble walking.

One trial, when his parents and he were going for a walk together, Devin saw another lute in a shop window. It didn’t look anything like his neighbour’s. It was made of fine wood, and it was painted with beautiful ornaments He asked his parents if he could have it, but they said no. They couldn’t afford it. Instead they gave him a couple of coppers so that he would be able to buy sweets. He didn’t want sweets. He wanted the lute. It was all that he could think of.

A few trials later he was sitting at the side of the road, daydreaming, as he often did, when two of his classmates, Harry and Lily, walked his way. They asked him what was wrong, and when he complained about not having enough money, they asked him if he wanted to help him with a trick. They walked to a busy street. Harry told Devin to keep watch, and then he pointed at a woman that looked reasonably well off. Lily grinned, nodded and strolled in her direction. A few metres in front of her she pretended to have a fit. She was even vomiting and foaming at the mouth. Devin was quite impressed.

While the woman desperately called for a doctor to help the poor little girl, Harry quickly reached into her purse and removed a bag full of nels. Soon after that Lily recovered miraculously, and the three children ran as quickly as they could. Devin was upset at first of course because he wasn’t used to this way of life yet and his parents had always told him that stealing was wrong, but then Lily give him twenty golden nels, his share of the booty, and his eyes lit up. That was the money for the lute! He couldn’t believe it!

He immediately ran to the shop where he had seen it and bought it, and then he hid it under his bed. He only played it when his parents weren’t at home because he knew that they were going to ask him where he had gotten it from, suspect that he had done something illegal and take it away from him again. He didn't want them to take it away from him again.

2. All Good Things come to an End

Devin grew quite ambitious. He constantly developed new techniques and tried to perfect his tricks. He discovered that a mixture of mashed bananas, applesauce and different grains made a perfect vomit-substitute. Sometimes he hid a pouch filled with pig’s blood under his shirt and smashed it in front of his victims (usually riders or carriages) so that they would believe that they had hurt him and give him free stuff, and sometimes he just down somewhere, cried and claimed that he was looking for his mummy. The latter usually earned him a meal or a bunch of sweets.

He realized that hiding all the things that he had stolen or bought with stolen money under his bed would be a bad idea. Soon he hid things in the backyard or behind the things that stood on the shelf in the living room as well. His mother discovered that hiding place when she decided to clean the house and get rid of all the dust one trial. When his parents asked him where the money had come from, he claimed that he made music in a tavern after school and that he had hid the money because he wanted to buy them a gift.

He was already fourteen and sitting somewhere and crying for his mummy had stopped working some time ago, but his parents thought that he was too young to work in a tavern nevertheless. They were quite touched by his desire to buy them a gift though. After he had given the matter some thought, his father decided to see if he could find a job for him, and thus Devin started to work at a tailor’s every other trial after school, with the offer of an apprenticeship once he had graduated.

On his way home he would sometimes visit The Crown and watch all the noble lords and ladies, and he began to study them, the way the talked, the way they acted, the way they dressed and the way they walked. He wanted more from life than to work the same job for decades and yet never be able to afford more than a little house in Andaris. He had no qualms about stealing anymore. In his opinion he was only transferring money, from them to him because he had more use for it than they did.

By the time that he was seventeen, he had made enough money to rent a small apartment above a scribe’s shop. His parents thought that he was a hard-working young man (which wasn’t exactly a lie, stealing was occasionally very hard work) and an upstanding member of society, and he persuaded them that he was old enough and responsible enough to live on his own. He still visited them regularly though. Despite the fact that they had very different outlooks on life, he loved them, and he thought that they deserved better as well.

All good things eventually come to an end though. Even as a boy Devin had had a penchant for dramatics, and his crimes didn’t go unnoticed. One evening two men visited him. They informed him that he had been intruding on their master’s turf, beat him within an inch of his life and took all his hard-earned money – and then they gave him the choice between working for their master and giving a share of his earnings to him or stopping to steal. Devin had absolutely no interest in working for the people that had beat him up. Instead he vowed to exact revenge on the master when he was old enough and strong enough to do so.

3. Branching Out

Devin did not stop stealing despite the fact that doing so had become much more dangerous for him. He had lost everything, and he had no interest in being poor again. He just became a lot more careful. Soon his purse was full of coins again. He had made more than three hundred golden nels, and he had even managed to steal a sword off a drunken warrior. It was about then that he realized that he needed to branch out if he really wanted to make it and become a master thief. Besides, he had grown bored of Rynmere. He already knew every tavern and every street. He wanted to travel and see the world and experience everything it had to offer!

He decided not to become a tailor’s apprentice – he’d never wanted to be one anyway - but travel north. His parents were quite sad to see him go, even when he told them that they had a famous university in Viden and that he might just enroll. It was around that time that the first of his false identities was born. As he boarded the ship to Viden, he became Devin Thorn, the merchant’s son. He had found out that there was a wealthy family that had the same name as his family in the Eastern Settlement. A member of a wealthy merchant family was much more likely to get what they wanted than a labourer’s son.

The next chapter of his life began in Ashan 718. Having grown tired of Viden, he booked passage to Scalvoris, an island full of strange plants and animals and nearly endless opportunities.

Capstones

Athletics Capstone 1: Upside Down Man: Devin has a great sense of balance, perhaps because he's had so much practice walking on his two hands, or because of his Mortalborn Domain of Goats. Whatever the case, he finds now that he can move as fast as a run without upsetting his balance, all while maintaining only one point of contact with a stable structure. Mechanically this allows him to move on his feet, his hands, even a combination of one foot and one hand. Should something unbalance him, all he needs is contact with a stable structure in order to right himself. The length of time Devin can do this is dependent on his strength and his endurance skills.

(Approval)

Cosmetology Capstone 1: Wear Anything: Devin has become such an incredibly skilled stylist that he can take virtually anything and create an amazing look for himself or for others with it. He can make someone look stunning in a potato sack. In his hands, a bunch of Moss Bunny fur, twigs or random flowers and grass from a meadow become amazing hair accessories. He can style a trash bag so that it looks like a perfect outfit for a ball.

Even armor can, when combined with accessories or clothing, be transformed into a great look. Things that might normally smell bad can easily be covered with perfume. When it comes to weapons, Devin can incorporate a small weapon, such as a knife or a dagger into an elaborate hairstyle so that it looks like some sort of hair accessory, for example, but bigger weapons are not within the scope of this capstone ability.

Making a halberd or a longsword seem like part of your look requires more than just cosmetology.

While Devin is very good at creating an amazing look with even highly unusual items, this capstone ability does not enable him, or anybody else, to enter a social situation stark naked and pretend that it’s some sort of avantgarde outfit. He could make someone that is wearing next to nothing look great through the clever use of makeup and accessories though, for example.

All in all, Devin is only limited by his imagination. (Approval)


Deception Capstone 1: The Language of Lies: Devin has become so good at lying that there are no signs that he is lying anymore. He doesn’t fidget and squirm, he doesn’t avoid eye contact, his heart rate doesn’t change, and he appears to be completely comfortable. He knows exactly how to modify his body language and the tone of his voice and how to word things to make people believe that he is telling the truth.
(Approval)

Deception Capstone 2: Living a Lie: Devin has become such an exceptional liar and so good at misleading people that he can lie his way into just about any place. He can walk into a room full of people that don’t know him, he can join a gathering of a group that he isn’t really a part of, and claim that he’s supposed to be there, and they’ll be inclined to believe him.

What does that mean in detail? Devin could walk into the university, approach a group of students and claim that he’s their new professor, for example, and even attempt to teach them. He could walk into a ballroom or a party and tell people that he was invited, too, or attend the private meeting of a faction as if he actually were a member, too – or even pretend that he’s the new recruit of the bandits whose hideout he stumbled upon.

As long as he doesn't say or do anything too weird, they won’t question his presence or think about him too much (unless he wants to attract attention!) – which makes his crimes much easier and even provide an additional tool for survival, among other things.

Of course, Devin might have a problem if the real professor in the example above showed up - and he'd need a good excuse.

Furthermore, he might also have a problem if he has to perform (unless he's familiar with the subject in question), and he cannot portray someone that he doesn't know flawlessly. Furthermore, he can obviously not pretend that he's another person's employee, friend or relative as they would know (unless they have memory problems).

Some skill in Acting as well as background research can make this capstone more effective.
(Approval)

Deception Capstone 3: Fake It Till They Make It: Devin is an accomplished conman and liar, but he's long since left a life of attempted crime behind him to pursue altruism. As such, he believes that making people happy is a far better way of getting on their good side.

He can lie to someone, telling them they are great at something, or have this wonderful quality, to the point where the other person will believe it.

Mechanically, this means that Devin can boost a skill that they not have by one level, meaning that an untrained individual now functions at Competent in the skill in question.
(Approval)

Medicine Capstone 1: Staring at Mutants: Due to his extensive knowledge of both magic and medicine, Devin can tell if a mutation, a deformity or something similar has a natural or unnatural cause. He can tell if someone was cursed, has a magical mutation, a corruption, a disease, a grafted addition or a birth defect, for example.

If he diagnoses something as a magical mutation or a corruption, he can tell which domain it is related to as long as he has studied the domain in question beforehand. He can only diagnose physical traits or traits that have a physical component, such as unusual eating habits.

As far as mental mutations are concerned, Devin can tell that they are mental mutations, but nothing more than that. He cannot tell which domain they are related to. (Approval)

Medicine Capstone 2: Improvisation: Devin is such a skilled doctor and surgeon now that he doesn’t have to use proper medical equipment or surgical tools in order to do a good job anymore. Household objects, or whatever other objects happen to be in his vicinity, work just as well. He can make do with whatever is available. Examples of this would be treating a ganglion cyst by striking it with a random heavy object, or using construction tools when performing an orthopedic surgery, treating bone problems or even amputating something. The improvised tools are no better than average quality for the purpose of medical procedures.(Approval)

Socialization Capstone 1: Barely Logical: Devin can be quite a weird and eccentric man sometimes, but if he wants to, he can also be so charismatic and charming that people find it hard to resist him and are inclined to just go along with what he says. When it comes to persuading them or convincing them of his point of view, or of doing certain things for him, his arguments only have to make the tiniest amount of sense. He doesn’t have to carefully craft his arguments or think things through anymore. Barely logical does the job very well nowadays!

Should Devin fail at persuading someone of something, after all, they will be disinclined to be mad at him or feel offended. They are more likely to be amused or entertained instead!(Approval)

Socialization Capstone 2: A Torrent of Persuasion: Some people can persuade quietly, others firmly. Devin has learned that he can persuade people by sheer enthusiasm and a torrent of talking. He waxes lyrical about how wonderful something is and those around him start to feel the same enthusiasm. Rather than being irritating or too much, Devin has learned the fine balance of being absolutely endearing and entirely contagious in his outlook. While this can, of course, be resisted, it is a very up-beat and positive thing and one has to be trying very hard to be very grumpy in order to not feel better about whatever it is Devin is talking about.(Approval)

Socialization Capstone 3: Generosity Boomerang: Devin loves giving gifts and has given many gifts to many people over time. He has developed a reputation as a generous man, and this means that people are more likely to think of him when they are performing acts of kindness. Because of his reputation as a gift-giver, Devin receives many small gifts from people, grateful for what he has done for them. Mechanically, this will add +3WP to his wealth threads, each season.

In terms of narrative, I will write in Devin receiving small gifts throughout my threads, from faceless NPCs, but will not claim the gifts as loot. (Approval)

Socialization Capstone 4: Pathos: From the sermon that he held during the opening of the new Temple of Delroth in Scalvoris Town to his various speeches, Devin knows exactly how he needs to act and how he needs to word things in order to get his point across. He has in fact become so good a rhetoric that he can cause an emotional reaction of his choosing in his audience now. They might feel sad if he talks about all the losses that Scalvoris has suffered recently (and subsequently wants them to try and help people), or they might feel a hint of his admiration for Delroth, for example. He can even get through to someone that isn’t normally likely to go along with him. High levels in relevant skills such as Meditation or Discipline are necessary for a listener to ignore Devin or tune him out. Why would you want to ignore such a brilliant speech though? (Approval)

Devin


Divination
Scrying
By moving a hand across a reflective, translucent, refractive or luminescent surface or even smoke or a burning fire, Devin can temporarily turn it into a mirror that shows him a glimpse of an event that takes place in the future* of the city that he is currently in.

Devin can only see events that take place in the current cycle. Furthermore, he can only use this ability once per trial. After using this ability, he will feel slightly confused and lightheaded for several bits.

Attempting to use this ability more often, will result in a splitting headache that will make it hard for him to function properly, and Devin won’t see anything at all, of course.

*This ability is tied directly to the calendar of the city that Devin is currently in. It allows him to predict the calendar event in a rather general way – meaning that the only information available to him will be what’s in the calendar. He won’t be able to predict any details.

(Approval.)
Doorways
Forced Entry
By outlining the shape of a door in front of a wall or another kind of barrier with his hands, Devin can create a temporary opening and access that which that can be found behind the wall or barrier which enables him to bypass locks, guards and other unpleasant obstacles that make a thief’s work so much harder.

Of course, the opening doesn’t manifest instantly. How long it takes for the opening to manifest depends on his Meditation skill as he has to focus on it. Only Devin himself can make the opening disappear, but others can walk through it as long as it is there. In order to make the opening disappear, Devin has to move a hand across it.

At Novice Meditation, it takes 40 trills for the opening to become big enough for Devin to walk through, 20 trills for the opening to become big enough for Devin to crawl through and 10 trills for the opening to become big enough for Devin to stick his head or a hand through it.

These numbers are reduced to 20/10/5 trills at Competent Meditation, 10/5/2 trills at Expert Meditation and 5/2/1 trills at Master Meditation. No matter what Devin does, he cannot create an opening that is bigger than a grown man (which means that he can’t create an opening that is big enough for him to drive a wagon through it, for example).

The same numbers apply to closing the opening.

At Novice Meditation, the opening remains for 15 bits, at Competent Meditation it remains for 25 bits, at Expert Meditation it remains for 40 bits, and at Master Meditation it remains for a break.

Devin can only create one opening at a time.

Should a part of someone’s body be inside the opening when it closes, they become trapped.

How long it takes them to free themselves, depends on their Strength skill.

At Unskilled Strength it takes them 2 bits to free themselves, at Novice Strength it takes them 1 bit to free themselves, at Competent Strength it takes them 30 trills to free themselves, and at Expert Strength it takes them 15 trills to free themselves. An individual with Master Strength can free themselves in 5 trills.
(Approval.)

(MB Ability Edit.)
Goats
Fainting Goat
There is a breed of goat called the fainting goat that falls over when startled. As the Mortalborn of Goats, Devin is capable of doing something similar – no, something even better. When he plays dead, those that are around him, including people and creatures that are about to attack, lose interest in him and focus on something else, or just walk away. For the ability to work, Devin mustn’t say anything, of course, and it stops working the moment he stands up again - which means that he'd better try to make sure that everybody is out of range beforehand.

Name: Emma Thorn
Race: Human
Date of Birth: Ashan 22, Arc 653
Skills: Singing 30, Storytelling 30, Caregiving 30, Socialization 26, Cooking 20, Dancing 10
Appearance: Emma Thorn was a beautiful woman in her youth, tall, with raven black hair, pale skin and warm brown eyes. She is still beautiful in a way, even though her hair is grey, and her face is covered with wrinkles now. Her style of dress is quite eccentric. In spite of her age, she dresses in colourful clothes, she wears high heels, and she is quite fond of makeup.
Personality: Emma is an endlessly creative woman that loves to sing and tell stories, and she’s quite eccentric. She dances in the rain, even though people insist that it’s inappropriate for an old lady like her, she loves thunderstorms, and she laughs at the people that criticize her. She’s a kind and warm-hearted woman, and she is quite fond of her only son.

Emma is usually quite optimistic and happy. She only wonders what her life would have been like if things had gone differently, if she hadn’t met her husband, if she hadn’t become a simple maid and married a labourer, if she hadn’t been poor and if she hadn’t spent her whole life in Andaris occasionally, usually when she thinks she’s alone, and nobody’s watching.

Skill Points Ledger: 10 Caregiving, 10 Dancing (Thread Review), 10 Caregiving, 26 Socialization (PB)
Everybody in that little street in Andaris’ Lowtown district wondered how Mrs. Thorn who was already in her forties and had been married to her husband for more than fifteen arcs without having a child had suddenly fallen pregnant and given birth to a baby boy.

Some claimed that Mrs. Thorn and her husband had adopted a child and decided to pass it off as their own. Others insisted that they were raising the child of a dead relative. Some even claimed that they had abducted a child because they had been so desperate. According to the gossips of Lowtown, there had always been something off about Mrs. Thorn.

She wasn’t like the other, hard-working, stuck-up and conservative wives in the district. She danced in the rain, she laughed when there was a thunderstorm, and she sang when she was working, all those songs about heroes and villains and spirits that visited you in your dreams, and she didn’t dress like a proper lady either. Her clothes were colourful, and her makeup, the gossips who never wore more than a bit of lipstick said, was too much.

There were so many rumours, but nobody could have guessed the truth. Mrs. Thorn hadn’t adopted a child, and she hadn’t abducted one either. She’d met a man, a most wonderful man, a divine man, that had given her what her husband hadn’t managed to give her.

~~~

She was forty-two at the time, and she had been working as a servant in the house of a wealthy judge in Andaris for several arcs by then. It was a demanding job. Her employer’s wife and his daughters were quite rude to her and treated her more like a slave, but she didn’t mind. It didn’t matter to her. She smiled when she made their beds and cleaned their rooms and even when she emptied their chamber pots, and when she thought that nobody could hear her, she sang. Everything was better with a little song in her opinion. Some looked down on her because she was only someone’s servant, but her thoughts were free.

She met him at one of the numerous social gatherings that took place in the judge’s house. She was just preparing a tray with snacks for the judge’s guests in the kitchen, softly singing a song about a sailor that fell in love with a mermaid, when she could suddenly hear someone clap their hands. She was so shocked that she nearly dropped the tray and abruptly stopped singing.

At first, she was afraid of him. He was a very tall man, broad-shouldered, with dark hair, but he had the most beautiful smile, and his voice was so gentle and kind. “I’ve never heard a more beautiful song”, the man said, and she knew that he meant it. There was something special about him, something that she hadn’t seen in any other man, not even in her husband. He reminded her of the songs and the stories she loved so much.

She’d never minded her life before, even though they were poor and didn’t have any children. Her husband was a simple man who didn’t understand the things she dreamed of at night, but she loved him all the same. In that moment, she couldn’t help but wonder what her life could have been like if things had gone differently though – what her life might be like if she had met someone like this man who she simply assumed to be one of the judge’s numerous guests instead of the man she was married to now.

“Can you sing another song for me?” he asked her, and she handed the tray to one of the servants in order to join him outside, on one of the balconies, where they would have a bit of privacy. She didn’t care that the judge’s wife would likely scream at her for not doing her job properly. She didn’t think of her husband. All that she could think of was that man that had something about him that was out of this world, or, maybe, simply magical.

She sang a song for him, and then another, and when he asked her if she wanted to join him in one of the bedrooms upstairs, she went with him willingly. For a moment, as she lay next to him, her head on his chest, she wondered what would happen if she asked him to take her with him – she barely knew him, but she was already quite enamoured with him – if she left her husband and came with him, if they travelled the world together.

Would her dreams come true then?

“I’m sorry”, he said, as if he could read her thoughts. “But I cannot take you with me. I have given you a gift though, something that you wanted all your life.” She was confused, and for a moment she was even angry, even though she knew that he spoke the truth – she was not aware of his divine nature, but she knew that he was much more than he appeared to be.

They parted ways but a break later, and she never saw him again. She went back to her husband and her little house in Lowtown. A part of her was slightly bitter from that trial onwards, but another part of her was almost overjoyed, because something special had happened that night, something that the other wives in her street would never have.

A few seasons after she had met him, she gave birth to a boy that she named Devin. She never told her husband that she had cheated on him – she knew that it was wrong, but she just couldn’t regret what she had done – and her husband never asked. He’d been wondering if their childlessness was his fault for a while and suspected that the boy was not truly his. He was fine with it for the most part though, and he loved him even though there was something quite different about him. He’d always dreamed of having a son one trial.

Marks

Tarouz (Adored)

Abilities

Favored
  • Feathered Friend: Immediately granted when blessed by Delroth, Feathered Friend takes the form of a bird companion that is tied mentally and emotionally to the Tarouz. At this level, the bird may be of any species of a Medium size, which is roughly 9-16 inches tall. The bird need not eat or sleep, but will often to mimic other birds to avoid suspicion.
    At this level, the Tarouz can communicate with the bird familiar through flashes of mental and emotional signals, which each interprets flawlessly. The bird can be used to scout, to offer a distraction in combat, or at this level, is mostly used for companionship.
  • Wings of Steel: By using this ability, the Tarouz can grow organic steel feathers all along his or her arms, allowing them both a weapon and armor at a moment's notice. The feathers are as durable as steel, and offer resistance to piercing and bludgeoning damage. They are also razor sharp, though at this level, they must be wielded as melee weapons, as they can't be thrown from the Tarouz. The biggest drawback is that the feathers each weigh a moderate amount, slowing the Tarouz considerably unless well practiced with the ability.
  • The Charismatics Toolbox: The Tarouz may add 3 skill points to any of the following skills: Appraisal, Cosmetology, Falconry, Flying, Persuasion or Seduction. These points may be used to surpass the 100 skill points of the skill chosen.
  • Clothed in Finery: The Tarouz gains the ability to enhance the look and feel of any of his or her clothing, making them appear to be of a much higher quality than they actually are. The illusion is far less effective under close scrutiny, and once discovered, the ability ceases to work until the Tarouz changes clothing, or they don't interact with the same people for 1 trial.
  • The Covetous Covenant: At will, a Tarouz may mark an object that he or she greatly desires. Once marked, the Tarouz will know the basic whereabouts and condition of the object, regardless of distance between the two. This link lasts until the Tarouz comes into possession of the item, and will cause the Tarouz to become more and more obsessed with its acquisition until he or she does so. Once the Tarouz comes to own the object, he or she becomes extremely blissful and their basic needs (eating, sleeping or drinking) are fulfilled.
  • Mirror Mirror: Once per season, a Tarouz may designate two mirrors to act as a two-way communication device. The mirrors become linked, and when a codeword is spoken in front of it, the mirror shows whatever is on the other side of the second mirror. This can be used a way to guard one's belongings, or send a message to a friend. At Favored, this effect is only as large as a city. At Adored, it can be regional. At Exalted, the mirrors may travel to any corners of the world they wish.
  • A Feather's Weight: Once per trial, the Tarouz has the ability to reduce the weight of any item to that of a single feather. This ability only lasts ten bits per level of Tarouz, at the end of which the item returns to its original weight. Often used to carry larger amounts of gold to hide, A Feather's Weight is one of the most coveted abilities of the Favored Tarouz.
  • Secrets in the Wind: Only viable when both parties are outside, Secrets in the Wind allows a Tarouz to whisper into the wind and have that whisper carried to someone the Tarouz desires. Helpful in relaying commands or changing plans, this ability is the available as many times per trial as the Tarouz wishes. At Favored, it affects half a city. At Adored it can affect a whole city. At Exalted it can reach between cities in the same region, as long as both recipients are outside.
  • Birdtongue: This ability allows a Tarouz to communicate with any species of bird, regardless of the Tarouz' familiarity of the species. Birdtongue lets the Tarouz convey basic information, while receiving the same. At Favored, the bird is compelled to obey any orders, but may resist. At Adored, the bird will only resist if the action would endanger itself or its young. At Exalted, the bird will obey, no matter what.

Adored

  • Nest: Considered by some to be Delroth's greatest blessing, Nest allows a Tarouz to designate a home or building as his or her 'nest' once per arc. By doing so, the Tarouz grants the abode the ability to remain hidden, even against practiced eyes, of any who should seek to rob or harm the Tarouz. Addtionally, the Tarouz will always be aware of his or her Nest, and may be able to recollect with certainty every object held within. As a final benefit, the Tarouz will always rest fully and peacefully in his or her nest, cutting their time needed to sleep in half.
  • Feathergrace: The Tarouz' avian familiar may, once every 9 trials, grant the Tarouz a single feather from it's coat. The feather may then be imbued by the Tarouz to improve the charisma of the one wearing it, drawing the eyes of those around them without any true explanation as to why. The Feathergrace draws the targets' interest and attention, forcing them to focus on the Tarouz. This effect may only last two trials, after which the feather must be incinerated lest it confer a curse that causes the opposite effects to happen to the wearer.
  • The Charismatics Toolbox II: The character is granted an extra six skill points which may be spent only on the following skills: Appraisal, Cosmetology, Animal Husbandry, Animal Training, Flying, Socialization or Seduction. Any skill points granted by this Mark can break the 250 (or 100 if fast track) point cap on skills. Within these skills, the points may be spent how the pc chooses.
  • The Cloak of Wind: Once every trial, a Tarouz may summon around him or herself a strong wind, capable of pushing large objects with its power. The wind surrounds the Tarouz, offering protection against projectiles and increased movement speed as the wind carries the Tarouz. This lasts for one break per level of Tarouz, and may be used even inside, where no air movement is present. The Tarouz may command the wind to break or cease as he or she sees fit, so as to not damage their own property or allies.
  • Hawkeye: At will, the Tarouz may increase his or her vision to that of a hawk's, allowing them to see vast distances with ease. The Tarouz must have a clear view of the target, as the ability cannot circumnavigate any people or structures. The end result is one of a slightly-fisheyed area, where the Tarouz may view in clear detail the surroundings. The use of this ability leaves the Tarouz feeling dizzy and restricts their depth perception for ten bits per use.
  • The Windmasters Boon: When outside, the Tarouz may instruct a breeze to blow at his or her behest. This wind grants the Tarouz and all allies within 250' faster movement speed and the decreased weight of their equipment and belongings. This effect lasts as long as the Tarouz remains outside and commands the wind to blow, and will wear off as soon as willed or the Tarouz enters an abode.
  • Stalwart Against The Storm: The Tarouz with this ability has gained immunity from the wind. This effect allows the Tarouz to stand strong against even the strongest winds, and though it will not diminish other storm effects such as rain or lightning, the winds will split and break before the Tarouz. At Adored, the Tarouz may resist an Air Defier up to the Expert Level, whereas at Exalted, he or she can resist Master, and at Champion, Legendary.
  • Eye of the Flock: A Tarouz, in meditation, may piggyback their senses to any bird within sight. While they may not have the ability to command all birds, they can gain immense vantage. This ability can be used on as many birds as the Tarouz sees when utilizing this ability and can subtly direct their path through the sky. Many Tarouz have used this to ride the senses of entire migrating flocks to scout miles ahead of them. This ability can be maintained as long as the Tarouz likes, but eventually they will need to return to their senses to eat, drink, and take care of themselves.
  • Flawless Visage: The Adored of Delroth's image can never be marred, not by any physical or magical means outside of a mage's Revelation. All physical wounds will heal smoothly, and no burn or bite may leave its mark.


Black Claws While Devin is in a humanoid form, he will have blackened, claw-like nails on his hands that are shiny and attractive, with interesting marbling through the blackness of their surface. They can heal and regrow if cut/manicured just as his ordinary nails would be. They can be filed to be sharpened as well as a big cat's claws, or can be dulled with a file. But they will skew toward sharpness if not tended to. Due to the way that Devin's Becoming ether and Rakvald's Graft ether mixed, the claws do not carry the risk of corruption, like other additions made with Graft. (PSF Approval)

These claws are also connected to one of Devin's Becoming mutations.

Edasha Consequence: Devin has gained enormously in terms of renown / fame now - and he has also drawn Edasha's attention. From this point onwards, Devin will find himself developing a small group of devout "followers" who will do their best to meet his every whim. Are they genuinely adoring of him (they are all devout Delroth followers) - or are they more of Edasha's attempts to seduce him? Up to you! If you ever choose to pursue Edasha's mark, please cite this thread as a reason for why she would look favourably on him.

Liar, Liar: Since trying to throw suspicions on Linika, red, blotchy marks appear on the back of Devin's neck when he lies. It starts out as feeling hot like a blush and the bigger the lies become the worse it gets. If he tells a few lies in the space of a few bits, the marks will become itchy and the desire to rub and scratch at it will grow, eventually causing it to develop into a full-blown rash. The rash develops more quickly when he tells lies that are potentially damaging to others. It’s uncertain if this is a subconscious guilt response or some sort of curse but either way, it’s bloody uncomfortable!

-> Devin is free of this curse as per this PSF thread.

Aidan

Name: Aidan (Approval)
Race: Human
Date of Birth: Cylus 24, Arc 695
Skills: Linguistics 51, Research 30, Teaching 30, Combat: Blades (One-Handed) 54, Swimming 30, Animal Training 30, Animal Husbandry 51, Endurance 20, Strength 26, Medicine 26
Appearance: Aidan stands at approximately 6’0” and is slender, but not underweight. He has curly black hair, gentle brown eyes and pale skin. As far as clothing is concerned, he prefers to wear suits made of tweed, often with elbow patches.
Personality: Aidan is quite a studious young man. As of Saun 718 he is studying for his Diploma in Linguistics. His greatest wish is to become a professor and teach one trial. That doesn’t mean that he is a total bookworm though. Once he is done studying for the trial, he usually goes to Cally’s to listen to the resident bard or to a tavern to drink with his friends. He is a gentle young man that rarely loses his temper, but you shouldn’t mistake his calm demeanor for weakness and helplessness. He knows how to use a weapon!
Relationship to PC: Roommate, friend with benefits etc.
Skill Points Ledger: 20 Animal Training (PB), 10 Animal Husbandry (Zi'da 719), 10 Blades (PB), 10 Linguistics (Cylus 720), 10 Blades (Ashan 720), 30 Swimming (PB), 10 Animal Training (Saun 720), 10 Endurance (Vhalar 720), 20 Animal Husbandry (PB), 10 Endurance (PB), 20 Strength (PB), 10 Animal Husbandry (Cylus 721), 11 Animal Husbandry (PB), 11 Linguistics (PB), 10 Medicine (Ashan 721), 16 Medicine (PB), 10 Teaching (Ymiden 721), 10 Blades (Saun 721), 4 Blades, 6 Strength (Vhalar 721)

Talieson

Name: Talieson (Approval)
Race: Human
Date of Birth: Ashan 34, Arc 688
Skills: Musical Instrument (Lute) 70, Acting 26, Seduction 76, Singing 26, Deception 26
Appearance: Talieson stands at 6'1" He has dark brown hair and hazel eyes that often twinkle with some hidden mischief. His voice is deep and pleasant, the voice of an experienced singer who makes music for a living. He usually walks with a swagger in his step and with utter confidence, as if the world is his for the taking, he wears fine clothes, and he is almost never seen without his beloved lute.
Personality: Talieson is a vain man who really enjoys his fame and who has a way with words that is almost magical. He can often be seen walking down the streets of Scalvoris with a beautiful woman or a handsome man on his arm and enjoying the looks that he is getting from the people that he passes by. He worships Edasha as much as he worships Zanik, he has few inhibitions and dubious morals, and he thinks that there is nothing wrong with adultery. In fact, he thinks adultery a great idea. He smiles frequently, he quite enjoys playing pranks on people and provoking them, and he loves alcohol, perhaps a little too much. When you ask him why he drinks so much, he claims that he’s a better lutist when he’s drunk.
Relationship to PC: Roommate, colleague etc.
Notes: This is a personal NPC that does NOT require upkeep.
Skill Points Ledger: 10 Lute (Zi'da 719), 50 Seduction (PB)

Appearance: When he was younger, Daniel Thorn had deep black hair, and he was tall, and strong, making a living with physical labor most of the time. He’s still tall, but his hair has turned grey for the most part, and there are lines on his face that speak of a life that was in equal measures filled with hardships and joyful experiences. As far as clothes are concerned, Daniel prefers plain and functional clothes, and muted colors, quite unlike his wife, and he doesn’t wear any jewelry.
Personality: Daniel Thorn is a quiet man, and he is not given to being overly emotional. He’s not creative, and he doesn’t know how to make music or paint, but he cares deeply about his family and would do anything in order to protect them.

Raine

Name: Raine (Approval)
Race: Human
Date of Birth: Ashan 21, Arc 696
Skills: 40 Seduction, 40 Cosmetology, 30 Socialization, 30 Leadership, 30 Etiquette, 28 Logistics, 26 Linguistics, 26 Discipline
Languages Spoken: Fluent Common, Fluent Scalveen, Broken Rakahi, Broken Common Sign
Appearance: Raine is a tall, bronze skinned woman with long hair the colour of honey and vivid green eyes. She is always exquisitely put together. You will never see her wearing plain or ugly clothes!
Personality: Raine is sultry and seductive, without ever being slutty, and she is absolutely devoted to Delroth and, perhaps, a little to Devin himself. She is familiar with the rules of etiquette and absolutely meticulous when it comes to doing her job – because Delroth deserves nothing but the best in her opinion – but there are certain things she refuses to do, either because they are disgusting, or she considers them to be below her. Well, she refuses to do those things for anybody but Delroth!
Backstory: Raine is the only daughter of the first priest that took care of the original shrine of Delroth. Her father grew old and weak and could no longer serve their patron Immortal the way that he deserved it. She took care of her father as he grew older, and when Devin became her “Pappy’s” successor, she decided to help him as his assistant.
Relationship to PC: Assistant

Lily

Name: Lily (Approval)
Race: Human
Date of Birth: Ashan 9, Arc 695
Skills: Larceny 25, Acting 25, Deception 25, Cosmetology 25
Appearance: Lily has brown eyes, pale skin and long thick auburn hair that she usually wears in a braid that comes down to the middle of her back. Her face is covered with a multitude of freckles, and there is usually a mischievous smile on her face. She favours trousers over dresses and skirts because dresses and skirts can get in your way when you are running from the guards or climbing through a window.
Personality: Lily is cheeky and stubborn and has a wicked sense of humour – and absolutely no sense of right and wrong. She is a thief and a con woman, and she is creative and extremely proud of what she is and what she does. Furthermore, she is quite bossy sometimes.
Relationship to PC: Childhood friend
Notes: Memory NPC

SSD: "Disguise" changed to "Cosmetology"

Magic Mentor

Name: Adeline
City Location: Scalvoris
DoB: Cylus 17, Arc 695
Race: Human
Organization: ~
Skills:
Becoming: 76
Attunement: 51
Transmutation: 26
Blades: 51
Jewelry Crafting 30
Meditation: 16


Bio: Adeline grew up in Lowtown in Andaris. Her father owned a tavern. She could have taken his tavern over one trial, being his oldest child, but she wanted more from life than that. Even as a girl, Adeline was exceedingly ambitious. When a group of mercenaries stayed at her father’s inn, she persuaded them to let her join them and ran away with them.

For the next couple of arcs, they travelled the world together, selling their swords to the highest bidder and occasionally looking for treasure (that they sold to the highest bidder as well). After a while, they started to argue though. Adeline thought that they should become mages as magic might make them even more successful. Her companions who were wary of magic were firmly against it. For that reason, Adeline left.

She decided to become a mage on her own. Her travels took her from Scalvoris over Yaralon to the deepest jungles of Desnind and back to Scalvoris, looking for adventures and treasure – and allies that might be worth sharing her magic with. During her travels, Adeline didn’t only acquire one spark, but three sparks in order to improve herself and her companions and give herself an edge.

Appearance: Adeline is a pretty woman, with long blonde hair and big brown eyes. She is slender, her skin is slightly tanned, and she has a lot of freckles.

Relationship: Magic Mentor

Signature Items

Memory Mirror

Memory Mirror (250 Renown): The Memory Mirror is a beautiful, large mirror with a frame that is made of gold and decorated with feather-like engravings. If Devin touches it, the enchantment that was placed on it starts to work. The Memory Mirror can record Devin’s favourite looks so that he can see himself with them without having to actually put his clothes on or do his hair and makeup. He just has to tap the mirror and stand still for approximately ten trills. By touching the left and right side of the mirror, Devin can cycle through his various looks, and by tapping the mirror twice, he can delete a look that he doesn’t want anymore

Approval

Legendary Mount

Scalvoris Winged Goat: Upon seeing the Scalvoris Winged Goat, most people cannot help but wonder what exactly it is and where it comes from. Speculations range from it being the result of magic to being some sort of freak of nature. The former is actually the case. The Scalvoris Winged Goat is the result of a Grafting experiment gone wrong (or right?). It is a modified Scalvwing Steed.

The Scalvoris Winged Goat looks just like a somewhat shaggy and unusually large goat with black fur for the most part, it eats the same kind of food that goats eat, and it has most of the other traits that goats have as well, albeit it is comparatively docile.

From its back sprout a pair of magnificent black wings that enable it to fly for an extended period of time though, and it can be ridden like a horse – or rather, like a Scalvwing.

And what more, when someone climbs onto its back, its fur changes color to match their clothes!

The lifespan of the Scalvoris Winged Goat is more or less similar to that of a Scalvwing Steed. Unfortunately, the Scalvoris Winged Goat is completely sterile, most likely due to what esulted in it changing color and having wings that no goat should ever have. Attempts to breed it will not lead to a new kind of goat. They will lead to – exactly nothing!
