Maxine is not a girl that's overly fussy with her appearance. Her dark, wavy hair frames her rounded face to hover always just above her shoulders. Her black-lined, striking caramel eyes are rivaled for attention only by her sharp cheekbones and plump lips. If someone were to gaze upon her for some time, however, they might notice some peculiar attributes associated with her mixed heritage. Diluted Biqaj blood from her birth mother sometimes changes the hue of her usually caramel eyes depending on Max's mood. These alterations are certainly not so drastic as a true Biqaj, but they may appear on a spectrum from hazel to nearly black. Likewise, there exists Avriel influence in her irises, too. Flecks of black proliferate it as though the dark abyss in the center were slowly gaining ground against the Biqaj cover. Any other Avriel influence seems to be deeply rooted in psychology rather than appearance.

Chosen clothes tend to be light-weight and breathable, allowing her the most room to breathe in a world that she feels is constantly trying to nail her down and suffocate her. More often than not she'll happily wear a bandeau beneath a tank-top in the warm cycles and layer up with practical furs come the cold. Yet beneath those clothes one can glimpse the wounds of the past. Small, circular burns, lashes and miscellaneous scars mark her tan skin and sometimes peek outside whatever she's wearing. Since Chrien took notice, Max also boasts the goddess's mark upon her torso.

As someone who was left by everyone practically at birth, it shouldn't come to much surprise that Maxine is geared toward self-preservation. Repeated let-downs and exposure to the cruelty of the human spirit hasn't planted any trusting seeds in the Mixed Blood. Suspicious of virtually everyone and reluctant to get her hopes up, most will be hard-pressed to deceive the girl that is always expecting it. Being passed along from orphanage to orphanage made making and keeping friends hard, and after a while, Maxine became less preoccupied in developing a friendly/fake attitude that might make creating bonds easier later in life. Given the choice it's likely she wouldn't spend more time than necessary with others in general. Only the fittest of the fittest shall survive and Max has every intention of doing just that. She alone is her closest confidant, her most reliable friend, and her own family. No one can protect Max better than Max least that's what she's come to firmly believe. All in all, when it comes to playing with others, Maxine doesn't play well. If the going gets precarious one shouldn't rely on the Mixed Blood to unreasonably risk her own life for anyone else's.

In many ways Maxine hasn't grown up. Besides her hypervigilance and paranoia, her emotions are tumultuous in that there's very little regulation. While guarded, her ego is easily wounded. Disrespect is answered with violence either verbally or physically. Those that have received both might even admit a verbal lash from the girl packs just as much stopping power as one of her bare-knuckle punches. Even criticism is met with strong resistance. Demanding too much of her can trigger her into a spiral of spite, the end result of such a mistake being entirely unpredictable but no doubt carrying heavy consequences for all. It's probably easier to lead a stubborn horse to water and make it drink than it is to force Max to do something she doesn't want to.

Despite her stark flaws, Max does have some merits. Unless seen as a necessity, the Mixed Blood prefers blunt candor over telling lies. What integrity she does have will manifest strongly despite the punishment she might earn for it. The very, very rare few that manage to create a bond with her will be protected fiercely and enjoy perks of her loyalty. Getting in the way of her determination when she has her mind set on something is extremely difficult. When she likes and is truly dedicated to something, it may manifest like an obsession.

For as long as she can remember, Maxine was always some sort of nomad. Perhaps it's due to some defense mechanism that she can recall so little of her early childhood. Whatever the case, even she admits there are glaring holes in her origin story. Most of what she does know has been filled in by caregivers she's had over the years. Born a Mixed Blood to a venturing Avriel man and half-Human, half-Biqaj woman, there's reason to believe she was never born out of love. From the moment she was abandoned at the first, orphanage after orphanage took turns passing the little abomination. Each place of asylum was different: some serving as waking nightmares, and others offering a glimpse into a life filled with genuine compassion and affection. After many arcs she landed in one particularly abhorrent place. It was the sort of establishment that smiled when young couples walked in the door but viciously lashed a starving child with the audacity to reach for seconds. One bout of corporal punishment too many sent a small Max slipping into the night with a sack of stolen, stale bread. The next morning she awoke to find that the docked sloop she'd hidden inside to safely sleep was well out to sea, and a few pairs of pointy-eared sailors blinking down at their stowaway with eyes that changed in light of their curiosity.

For the most part, the Biqaj people had embraced her rather warmly since they discovered her stowed away as a child in one of their sloops. She was fed, clothed, and taught like any other child in their communities. One would've assumed such an upbringing would've resulted in the Mixed Blood practically becoming no different from the pure-blooded adventurers that had taken her in. The charisma and light-hearted attitudes that defined the sea-farers was the part that never seemed to take. Everyday she seemed to wake up just as angry, just as distrusting of the intentions of those around her. No matter how much she practiced her smile never quite reached her eyes. Rolling with the punches was a foreign concept. Yet her prior trauma and paranoia weren't the only problems that barred her from becoming a proper Biqaj. There was simply no denying it: Maxine was a poor sailor. Everyone knew it. Her knots were never quite tight enough, the deck never quite clean enough, but the orphan had did her best to do her part all the same. Max was an unruly ward. Joking slights and ridicule by other children had almost always resulted in fist-to-cuffs. Even the smallest indiscretions seemed capable of setting the emotionally unstable half-Avriel off. Where Max went trouble always followed. Whether one wished to blame it on her genetics or early childhood trauma, the fact was that Max would never fit in. Still she always tried.

A series of altercations, disappointments, and failed jobs convinced Max her best bet would be to join a trading or pirating crew. With her best childhood friend Ned, she joined a ship with good intentions. Yet as the pattern prevailed, repeated conflict with the ships' captain escalated into outright violence. Max struck the last nail in her proverbial coffin when she hit him in the back of the head with the mop, humiliating him in front of his crew after he'd cruelly admonished her for the last time. After a firm kick to the face she was tossed into the ship's stores as punishment. In the midst of her childish tantrum below deck, Max spilled a large volume of gunpowder. By the time she was sent up to take watch the whole night as part of her reparations, a sea swell knocked a lantern lose. The explosion blew the ship apart and sent both Max and Ned into the sea. While those that perished in the explosion or the ship's sinking likely didn't know who was to blame for the tragedy, Ned did.

After a day of drifting a ship appeared on the horizon. At first relief washed over her. Then dread. Before the ship was upon them, Max plunged Ned's own sword into his middle and dropped him in the sea. Though she mourned the murder of her only friend, self-preservation was the strongest instinct. And dead men tell no tales. The Goddess Chrien took notice of this deceitful, devastating performance and elected to mark Max with Rusalkis; effectively unleashing a new, unpredictable, uncontrolled weapon to bring devastation upon the Human world. Soon after Chrien's storm, the ship returned to view to scoop the sea goddess's "Little Storm" from the sea. The simple lie of a ferocious storm breaking her ship apart in the water was bought by the benevolent crew. Without further suspicions, they dropped her off at the nearest trade port: Scalvoris. Now, with a dark secret to keep, Max will see how far she can go before her self-destructive tendencies reveal her again.

Skill Capstones

  • Detection
    • Sense Focusing

      Between the chaotic surface world and a long stay in the abysmally dark Level Seven of Slags Deep Prison, Maxine's senses have been honed beyond that of most people. She notices more detail, remains sensitive to sound, picks up more scents, and etc. as a product of her advancement. While better sense awareness has upped her detection game, it's Sense Focusing that separates her from the rest. The skill is best described as a toggle between her enhanced senses. If she finds herself surrounded by darkness, for example, Maxine may choose to focus her sense of hearing above all others. As a result, her mind and body become far more aware of auditory stimuli. She can hear things like the exhale of an enemy as they begin to execute their attack, or the sound of a large sword cutting through the air toward her. A toggle shifting to focus her sense of touch might allow her to pick up changes in the air that suggest an incoming storm on the horizon. While Sense Focusing is an extraordinary detection perk, the ability itself is limited. Under no circumstances can more than one sense be toggled into focus. The more Maxine toggles between senses within a given trial, the less potent the sense enhancement.
  • Resistance
    • Acclimated Immunity

      Maxine is far more resistant to illness and plague compared to the general population. Her body seems to recognize the most efficient response to fight foreign invaders as they're introduced to her immune system, rendering her less affected or entirely asymptomatic. Toxins and poisons work in the same way. Depending on their potency, type, and familiarity, a substance introduced to Maxine may achieve some of its desired effect or none at all. Maxine need only be exposed to an illness, toxin, or poison once to acclimate an immunity toward it. Even intentional self-poisoning (alcohol, drugs, etc.) are required in large doses in very short period to have an effect on her anymore. This ability is double-edged. While Maxine offers a robust natural defense to the aforementioned threats, her body does not differentiate between harmful tinctures and benign medicines.

Condemned Curse of Famula

Rusalkis Abilities

  • Turbulent Waters
    • An ability that works on any body of water deep enough for the Rusalka to swim in, Turbulent Waters causes the water to toss and turn, rage and roar as if a storm had risen, even if the day is as clear as can be. In addition, there are strong and uncontrollable riptides under the waves. For an unskilled Rusalka, Turbelent Waters can be dangerous to use, but for the skilled, it is a dangerous and deadly ability. This is due to the fact that while the Rusalka is safe from the waters themselves, they are not immune to any effects the waters have on other things. This ability can only be used once a trial at full strength, more often if the Rusalka affects a smaller area. The power affects an area up to three nautical miles in diameter and lasts for a break.
  • Favorable Outcome
    • An ability that allows the Rusalka to affect the odds of things like dice rolls and card draws, or any thing of a similarly small nature, so that they fall in the Rusalka's favor. The skill can be used as many times in a row as the Rusalka desires, but each consecutive use is less likely to succeed than the one before it, though going a whole Trial without using the ability will reset it.
  • Rusalkis Skills I
    • Add an extra three skill points to one of the following skills: Swimming, Seafaring, Torture, Polearms, Gambling, or Fishing. Any skill points granted by this Mark can break the 100 point cap on skills.
  • Seed of Spite
    • A surprisingly subtle ability for the usually operatic Chrien, Seed of Spite allows the Rusalka to plant the beginnings of a grudge in a target, a seed that can grow into a deep seated resentment and anger. Seed of Spite has been used in the past to ruin friendships, destroy loves, and topple dynasties, for such a small thing is so easily ignored. The seed is planted by touch, and will grow according to the victims natural inclinations, though the Rusalka can sort of "aim" a grudge by whispering into their hand what type of grudge they want the target to have.
  • Root of Dissent
    • Like Seed of Spite, Root of Dissent is a subtle skill, mainly for use in information gathering. Root of Dissent allows the Rusalka to tell what the cause of any given grudge is at any time, as well as being able to tell when someone is holding a grudge. A skill with a myriad of uses, heroic Rusalka's have used such information to heal breaches, while more villainous Rusalka's have used the knowledge to cause entire families to tear themselves apart.
  • Stormy Skies
    • Stormy Skies is an ability that, when activated, surrounds the Rusalka with storm clouds that then flow out from the Rusalka in a wave, allowing for a brief way to hide. The ability can be be used once five times a break, but repeated uses will cause the Rusalka to feel increasingly light headed.
  • Lucky Break
    • An ability that is passive in nature, Lucky Break causes random acts of good fortune to befall the Rusalka, anything from accidentally landing a perfect thrust or managing to avoid hitting hard rocks on a fall. However, this ability is random, chaotic, and out of the Rusalka's control, so many Rusalka prefer not to rely on it, especially as once it causes a good stroke of luck to happen, a bad one is certain to shortly follow. (OOC: While players can use this ability, keep in mind that abusing it will result in a loss of points and repeated offenses could be result in firmer action.)
  • Windstorm
    • A skill that allows the Rusalka to raise a terrible, but localized, wind against their enemies, the winds of this ability are no minor breeze, but rather a gale that can fling objects around, bend trees and collapse ships. However, not even Chrien can control the winds, so this ability can be almost as dangerous to the Rusalka as to their foes, for while the Rusalka is immune to the winds, they aren't immune to flying debris. This ability can only be used once a trial, covers an area about 500 feet in diameter and lasts for a break.
  • Spiteful Acid
    • The Rusalka is given the ability to launch a short range acid spray from their hands. Against most people, this acid is little more than irritating and itchy. To anyone against whom the Rusalka holds a grudge against, however, the acid will burn, the burning getting worse the more the Rusalka hates their target. The ability can be used five times a break.

  • Seeker of Spite
    • An ability that allows the Rusalka to trace an act of spite to it's source, Seeker of Spite can be used to allow the Rusalka to make easier use of the other spite-based abilities of Rusalkis by letting them sense when an act of spite has been performed near them and trace it to it's source.

  • Fan the Flames
    • A skill that is passive in nature, Fan the Flames allows the Rusalka infuse their own words so that they naturally augment the already existing spite and wrath in the people around them. However, it can not cause people to act in a specific manner, as they will still act how they choose to act, whatever that is to them.

  • Rusalkis II
    • Add an extra six skill points to one of the following skills: Swimming, Seafaring, Torture, Polearm, Gambling, or Fishing. Any skill points granted by this Mark can break the 100 point cap on skills.

  • Twister
    • The Rusalkis is able to conjure up and command man sized cyclones to send at foes. These miniature storm are drawn and send tearing along the earth towards their target, ripping up anything that gets in their way. Once the storm finds its victim, the twister will tear them through its body and hurl them out, dissipating. When the storm has taken too many things into its small cyclone body it will naturally dissipate. This ability is can be draining when used extensively. Rather than simply attack a victim, a Rusalkis can command a cyclone to instead hold them captive with powerful winds.

  • Horrific Deluge
    • The Rusalka causes powerful, driving rains that put out raging fires, flood rivers, and drown those who can't escape rising waters. Unlike a normal rain, however, Horrific Deluge is a power born of Chrien's anger and bitterness, and those dark emotions corrupt this downpour, causing any caught in it to be stalked by phantoms of their worst enemy. These phantoms have a physical presence and can injure the stalked and can only be defeated if the one caught in the rain lets go of their grudge. This ability can only be use once every three trials and lasts for a break.

  • Spitewalker
    • The spirit of a Storm is a wrathful entity. The Rusalkis can temporarily merge with a Storm spirit to take on some of that strength and power. The Rusalkis will immediately fall into a wrathful frenzy that will persist as long as the storm spirit is within them. Their form will meld with the storm itself, taking on styleized appearances relating to the storm at hand. They will become aware of all event transpiring under the radius of the storm itself and subtly have control over the direction and devastation the storm will bring. While in the radius of the storm the spirit is part of, the Stormbearer will heal at an extraordinary pace and gain resistance to any elements the storm is currently employing. The Rusalkis can cut the connection at any time, but ordinarily they will rage to exhaustion...and the spirit will leave their unconscious body.

  • Luckbringer
    • Like Stormbearer, Luckbringer allows the Rusalka to safely harness with a spirit, this time a spirit of luck. The Rusalkis places the luck spirit into a charm or item, something worn or held. The charm grants the Rusalkis enhanced mental capacity and an innate knowledge of when someone is cheating, at the cost of their impulse control and discipline, making them more chaotic and unreserved. The Rusalka retains the ability to sever the luck spirit from their charm.

  • Rusalkis Familiar
    • The Rusalka can now summon the spirit of a large, venomous octopus. Unlike a normal cephalapod, the familiar does not require water to breath when it is active, and floats through the air like it was water. This beast is aggressive and murderous, but also as fragile as one would think an octopus to be, meaning its best used to ambush opponents. When not active, the spirit takes the form of an octopus tattoo that runs across the Rusalka's body, able to lash out at any time. While in tattoo form, the octopus naturally enhances the grappling strength of the Rusalka. When first obtained, the venom of the the octopus will merely make a target slow and groggy, but it grows stronger as the Rusalka gains more of Chrien's power. At Exalted, the venom is paralytic, and for Champions, it is lethal.

  • Manifestation of the Storm
    • The sole defensive skill in Rusalkis, Manifestation of Storms channels the essence of the storm and uses it to create an shielding exoskeleton that surrounds the Rusalka. This exoskeleton mimics the Rusalka's movement, but can take a solid amount of punishment before shattering. When hit, enemies will find that the storm armor is no solid mass, but rather all the elements of a hurricane made into an armor. Raging winds surround the Rusalka, and lighting and pounding rains lace the winds, though the Rusalka feels none of this. Manifestation of Storms can only be used once a trial.

  • Rising Flood
    • A dangerous ability to both the Rusalka and the people around, them Rising Flood allows the user to flood any river or lake they can see, though the ocean is powerful and vast enough that even Chrien has never dared to try and cause it to flood. The reason for this is that the larger the body of water the Rusalka tries to flood, the greater the strain on their mind and body. If they don't go too far, the Rusalka can stop the flood before it kills them, but after a certain point, they lose all control and the water they raised consumes them to feed itself. The point at which it becomes too much varies based on the discipline, endurance, and meditative abilities of the Rusalka, but even the best of the Rusalka have never been able to get flood waters above three stories in a ten square mile radius.

  • Rusalkis Skills III
    • The character is granted an extra nine skill points which may be spent only on the following skills: Swimming, Seafaring, Torture, Polearms, Gambling, or Hunting. 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.

  • Unbreakable Grudge
    • An ability that allows the Rusalka to lock their target into an unbreakable grip of spite and bitterness, turning them against everyone and everything they love. This ability can only work on someone who is already holding a strong grudge, but it lasts until the Rusalka breaks their hold on their target. One with an absolute grip on who they truly are or a great deal of discipline could resist the effects, and the grudge can be cleaned out of the target by someone with the ability to effect emotions, though even then the grudge will return again and again. In addition, only one such grudge may be active at a time.

  • Spiteful Trial
    • The Rusalka imparts all of their anger and malice into a single person, causing everything around them to take a turn for the worse. This curse, as it might be guessed, only lasts for one trial, but it will make that trial one of the worst of the victims life. Everything that could go wrong without killing the victim will, though a clever target could avoid the worst of the social repercussions. This ability can only be used once a Cycle.

  • Great Maelstrom
    • A devastating, but highly limited ability, Great Maelstrom allows the Rusalka to create a massive whirlpool in any body of water big enough to sustain it. Though dangerous to any Rusalka who is not a skilled enough sailor or ship captain to safely traverse such dangerous waters, in the hands of the truly skilled, it has been used to accomplish what many would deem to be impossible, such as a single ship defeating a large group of ships, escaping pursuit by sailing perfectly against the wind after slingshotting out of the maelstrom, or other nautical feats that require a great deal of speed. This ability may only be used once a season.

  • Grudging Might
    • An ability that feeds of the Rusalka's own bitterness and spite, Grudging Might makes the Rusalka stronger in direct proportion to the strength of their grudge. There is no known upper limit to Grudging Might, and the strength of the Rusalka grows in direct proportion to the strength of their grudge. However, against someone the Rusalka lacks a grudge against, this ability is practically worthless. An ability that varies greatly depending on the personality of the Rusalka, but more famous bearers of Chrien's Blessing have been famous for the strength born of their spite.

Audnev Abilities

  • Blood Tie
    • The blessed can always tell in what direction The city of Augiery lies. This does not magically open an easy path, but it does give a boon to ignore the many decoys and avoid the traps that ensnare the unblessed who attempt to locate the hidden city. It can double as a compass of sorts. Can be activated twice per trial.
  • Leading the Blind
    • The blessed is able to inflict, upon a single victim, a sense of absolute certainty that some item could only be hidden in one particular place. The victim simply refuses to consider the possibility of it being concealed anywhere else. It lasts as long as the searcher feels the necessity to search, or as many bits (minutes) as the blessed's "Deception" skill point total, whichever comes first. This can be done twice per trial, but not both uses at once, so a pair of guards will still be a problem.
  • Stare Down
    • The blessed is always able to think clearly under extremes of terrifying situations. This does not mean they will never decide to run or hide (or whatever) anyway. But they will have been able to give lucid consideration to other options at the time. This includes the option of acting scared if they think it might give them some edge. This does not protect them from fear inflicted by drugs or arcana, but the impact will be significantly reduced.
  • Hand of Truth
    • Once per trial, the blessed can impose a twitch upon a single victim, by which they can not keep their hand still if they tell something that is either an outright lie, or a distortion meant to deceive. It will be the same hand as the blessed's own primary hand. If the victim is missing that hand, this blessing will be ineffective. The duration is for half as many bits (minutes) as the blessed's "Intimidation" skill point total. The victim will be unaware of this condition, but this blessing does not compel him to talk if he chooses not to.
  • Shadow Blind
    • Once per trial, the blessed can cloak themselves in a concealing shadow for as many bits (minutes) as their "Stealth" skill point total. However, use of this blessing in an unlikely spot, like broad daylight, will still be noticed, and probably draw unwanted investigation. At "Adored" level, this can be done three times per trial; at "Exalted", five.

Famula Curse

The Curse of Zuuda (Condemned)

Famula's curse manifests as a design of twisting chain links and an intricately tattooed lock across the heart. These marks persist past death, unlike any other divine mark. Maxine has been able to shed the chains on her arms and shoulders.

The Condemned of Famula will never feel the effects of this damning curse during their lives. Instead, when they die they will find no twins to judge them, no Vri to lead them to their rest. A Condemned of Famula is forever cursed to exist in purgatory, watching the world go by with no rest or peace for their tortured soul. They can be identified by the branding of her curse across their ectoplasmic bodies and each Zuuda instinctively knows that this soul is beyond their help.

To Overcome the Curse: Max must sincerely seek forgiveness from Famula's Champion Faith Augustin, and/or Faith's husband, the son of Famula, Padraig Augustin. She must do it on her own without being compelled or advised to. The next cycle after this apology is given, she will be freed from her curse, and the leash's power will be broken, and the collar will be removed from Maxine.

Acquired here.

Maxine had been fired. Again. She could try and tell everyone one of the usual stories: her boss was a dick, the job was a stupid waste of time, or that everyone knew that that one coworker had it coming. It didn't matter. Whatever her excuse, there would be no escaping the look of disappointment and defeat on the faces of her guardians when she broke the news. So routine was the exchange that the Mixed Blood could predict every word of the lecture to come. It seemed, in their opinion, she always was too much of something: too angry, too unfocused, too irresponsible. The redundancy was more than she could bear that day, and for once she desperately wanted to return as a ward that didn't fill anyone up with immense regret. After kicking over one of the business's rubbish bins and throwing up an obscene gesture, Maxine elected to venture down to the docks with what she believed was a genius idea: taking a contract out to sea. It seemed like a master plan. Pirating or trading would relieve her guardians of their unruly ward, and perhaps out on the open ocean she could hone her skills to find her place. She had to try. Just one last time.

Max had the contract pinned for easy. The captain had a reputation for candor but overall he was regarded as a favorite by his crews. Responsibilities were doled out based on merit, and the nature of even the simplest trading voyage could change if he spied a prize upon the horizon. The Mixed Blood had managed to keep quiet enough for the first mate to agree to her usefulness, and so the next day she set sail with her new crew. Most of the faces were new and surprisingly overwhelmingly Human, but Maxine was pleasantly surprised to identify a Human boy from her youth in her company. Ned began his life with the Biqaj as an outcast, too. Though his family preferred to embrace the Biqaj culture from land, Ned was forced to become sea savvy. Through hard work he became a model sailor in his adolescence and a friend to Maxine. He was one of her only friends, really, and perhaps one of the only children in their cohort she'd never felt the urge to smack. Glancing around the crew quarters, it was nice to know there was someone she could trust.

"It'll be a breeze," Ned said with a reassuring smile, the kind that made all worries briefly seem like a distant dream. "Just tie your hammock tighter to the post this time. Don't want it coming loose in the middle of the night again, do you?" Maxine rolled her eyes. She could still feel the pain of her head smacking against the wooden floor all those arcs ago. "And you keep your lips puckered," the Mixed Blood countered quickly. "I'm sure this captain will like all the ass kissing you were always into." Ned scoffed and threw a rag at her before the pair raced like children toward the upper deck to receive their orders. Predictably, Ned scored the duties that required a reliable, experienced sailor. Max was begrudgingly banished to maintenance duties. With each swab of the deck the excitement of her sailing adventure sorely waned. The reputation of their captain proved to be false when it came to her. The more he was on her case for the slightest infractions, the harder it became for her to keep her cool. The slipping of her facade merited her more frequent admonishment until the treatment between her and the rest of the crew was stark indeed.

"MAXINE!" The captain bellowed from beside the first mate at the helm. She felt her heart sink and something begin burning in her chest. She tightened her grip on the mop handle and slopped more water across the deck's surface. His voice came again. "MAXINE!" Heavy boots thumped toward her with hasty fervor. For a moment she shut her eyes tight, wishing him away like a child might the monster in the closet. At only a couple feet away his steps became deafening. Her eyes opened in time to watch his pair of clunky boots print mud all through where she'd just cleaned. Her knuckles around the mop turned white. "Yes, Captain?" If there was any attempt at restraint in her voice, it couldn't have been convincing.
"Have you ever owned a ship before?"
"No, what?"
"No, sir," Maxine forced the words out between her teeth. By now the rest of the crew had taken notice of the confrontation and a general hush had fallen over the ship. Captain stepped forward so there was little space between their chests. His color-turning eyes looked down upon her as his body cast a shadow. Maxine couldn't help but become acutely aware of the mop in her hands. "This ship is a representation of this crew," Captain bellowed again. "Do you respect your fellow crew members?"
"Yes, sir."
"Do you respect me?"
"Yes...sir," she lied after a lengthy pause. The Captain's anger beat against her skin like the flames from an open pit. She kept her eyes down on the deck, not out of cowardice, but for fear that if he saw the contempt she had for him her final chance would be blown. He shifted one of his muddy boots into her vision and twisted the filth on their bottoms onto the deck. "Get cleaning, you ungrateful mutt," he growled before turning on his heels. It was then that Maxine's gaze lifted. Ned caught her eye once, his brows raised and head shaking wildly. He seemed to repeatedly mouth "no" at her but it was too late. The Mixed Blood had already spun the mop around and smashed the cloth head into the back of the captain's skull. The big Biqaj slammed down into his own footprints and it seemed like everything but the waves breaking against the ship went quiet. One of the other crew members wrenched the mop from Maxine's hands while the first mate helped their disgraced leader up. The crew seemed divided on who needed the most restraint, but ultimately it was the captain that broke through to deliver a kick to Maxine's face when the crew had wrestled her down to her knees.

With a rag to take care of her bloody face, Max was tossed down beneath and banished from the upper deck. A verbally violent tirade was still occurring up top, but she was far too busy attending her own tempest. Her knuckles bloodied against wooden posts. Crates of food were toppled and once carefully wrapped lines strewn about the cabin. "Fucking prick!" she shrieked. "Bastard and his cheap ass fucking ship. Clean this about you fucking clean this!" With two hands she grabbed one of the powder kegs and flung it down upon the floor. The dark powder spilled about in thick clumps at her feet. A large swell crashed against the ship so hard it nearly tossed the tantrum-throwing girl off her feet. The oil lanterns rattled and precariously swung about. "Maxine," Ned's voice came a bit later alongside the sound of a swinging hatch.
"What?!" she griped and turned toward the stream of moonlight, realizing only then she must've been down there for at least a few breaks. Ned smiled kindly but it never reached his eyes. "You'll get the lashing tomorrow," he explained. "But tonight you start making amends with the shit watch." Maxine made for the opening and all but shoved past him. "Don't you give me that look," she sighed to him before slipping past the crew quarters to venture above deck. A long, precarious ascent into the crow's nest started her watch. With each passing break, every swell seemed to disturb the ship with more violence than the last. Then...boom.

An explosion shot out from down below with a force that rocked Maxine in her perch. Thrown against the rim of the nest, she peered down with horror to see bits of the ship hull blasted out in every direction. The ship moaned and immediately began to plunge sidelong. Her eyes widened, but it was too late. Before she knew it, she was tipped with the nest down into the sea. The ocean invited her into its massive, dark swells with heartless chill. Maxine clutched desperately to what she could to stay afloat as she listened to the screams of trapped crew. There were less tormenting her ears than there should've been, leading her to believe a large portions of her compatriots were killed in the blast. Seized with panicked, her eyes blinked at the carnage with horror. The reality of the situation seemed inconceivable...until. The gunpowder. Witless tears streamed down her face. She let out a whimper and desperately attempted to maneuver back toward what little of the ship remained afloat. The door to below peeked up from the waves, and she could hear someone slamming upon it and shouting from inside. Maxine swam over to it and yanked it open, only to peer down and spy Ned hardly keeping afloat inside. "Ned!" she shouted before reaching her hand down. With wide eyes he hurriedly lunged upward to grasp it so she might help hoist him out. A deafening crack sounded before pieces of the ship began to break apart, leaving the two little time to swim from the doomed ship to clamber onto a massive section of debris.

The two rested in their grief upon their makeshift raft, the silence speaking volumes between the two. Ned had seen the mess she'd made in the stores, and with the rock of the ship, it didn't require a detective to assume it must've been a loose lantern that blew their world and friends apart. The next day Maxine lifted her head to spy large white sails drifting toward them. "Ship," she murmured through chapped lips. Ned lifted his own head and the corners of his lips immediately tugged up. He willed himself on top of the makeshift raft and began waving his hands and shouting toward rescue. "Over here, we're here!" he called above the waves, hopping up and down so his short sword slapped against his hip. "Max! Get up here! Quick!" Exhausted, she pulled herself up to stand among the wreckage with less hope than her friend. "They'll never see or hear us, Ned," she despaired. Still he continued to shout. To both their surprise, the ship rotated toward them.
"See!" he whooped. "See! Look at that, Maxine, they're coming. They'll take us home!" Max looked from the incoming ship on the horizon, to her only friend in the world, and then back again. Something panged within her. Then, at near-lightning speed, she tugged his short sword free from the sheath on his hip, and thrust the blade through his center mass with an agonized shriek. The whooping stopped. Max's chest heaved. Blood poured down from the wound and over the hilt of the sword, rolling over her fingers. Sobs began to shake her rib cage when she dared look up at his face. His expression was twisted with pain and disbelief. "Maxine...why?" he managed to choke out. Tears rolled down her cheeks, breath turning haggard as she tried to force the words out.
"You were going to tell," she said softly before yanking the blade free from her friend's chest. Ned blinked and then stumbled back into the water where he would exsanguinate.

Max collapsed onto the bloody, floating wood choking while clutching her sword. The water churned furiously and the wind seemed to pick up out of no where. Clouds gathered above and the promising white sails disappeared in a fury of rain. Lightning flashed. Then something from the depths of the sea themselves ascended. A beautiful, horrifying sea creature broke the sea's surface to loom over the Mixed Blood. Max shook though the sight of the deity paralyzed her in place. The creature's gaze eyed the drenched girl with a mix between disgust and admiration. "You really will betray anyone, won't you?" the deity accused in a way that suggested Maxine need not answer just yet. A webbed hand churned the sea, causing the raft to spin as if the deity wished to get a better look at the Mixed Blood at her mercy. "Do you know who I am, girl?"
"Ch-Chrien," Max managed to voice between shivers. She looked up to glimpse the vast array of white scars that marked the infamous body of her captor.
"Yes," Chrien purred back, sinking deeper in the water until she was nearly eye level with the object of her interest. "I sunk a ship full of humans in these waters just trials ago with a storm you couldn't see through...and somehow you managed to blow apart one and everyone inside in a matter of seconds. Well..." She scooped Ned's lifeless body from the depths, presenting it to Max with a false sense of sympathy before pulling him back down into the darkness again. "Almost everyone."
"Stop it," Max whispered and hurled the bloody sword into the sea.
"Oh, Max," Chrien tsked. "Just what do I do with you? Destroy you? Is that what you deserve?"

The Mixed Blood inched back from the deity as though to make a stand or an escape, which only caused the sea goddess to cackle. "After that performance, you still want to live! I think I have just the thing for you." The storm deity reached out and rested a finger on Max's back. Immediately it felt as though lightning had struck the surface of her skin, bouncing about in a strange pattern that made her involuntarily twitch. When the touch relinquished it felt as though something had been left in its wake. It was something that seemed to course through her very veins. "You'll become one of my Rusalka. My "Little Storm". For what better weapon is there to wreak havoc upon the Human scourge than a Mixed Blood that walks like them, talks like them, but just can't help herself from inevitably destroying them?" Chrien laughed and offered her new Rusalka a final stoke upon her head. Then she retrieved Ned's sword from the depths and laid it before Max, before starting to slink beneath the depths of her sea again. "Serve me well, my Little Storm." Just like that Chrien's absence led to the end of the tempest. Skies cleared. The ocean calmed. And as the sun shined down, those promising white sails began to roll rescue back into view.

[anchor=marks]Special Items[/anchor]

Chrien Blessed Cat Suit

This catsuit will always perfectly fit Maxine's body, and will never limit any range of motion. This material is similar to the softest leather in feel, and is as strong as Adamantite. This catsuit cannot be worn over other clothes, and an attempt to do so will find it refusing to be put on. It can be worn underneath other clothes however. If another person possesses this Catsuit, a permanent, albeit small (the size of a city block) hurricane will rampage around the individual until it returns to Maxine's possession. While wearing it, Maxine can communicate with Mer telepathically and breathe underwater.

The Stun Gloves

A pair of fingerless gloves with the ability to interrupt any form of ether, including that used in Domain Magic, divine ether used in mark abilities, ether used to make up Emean creatures, and other such things. Each strike will disturb the ether momentarily. This means that a spell or ability being prepped will need to be started over or reactivated. A being made of ether, ectoplasm, or ephemera will find Maxine's strikes always capable of hitting their form. Maxine is able to mentally toggle the stunning ability on and off while wearing them. However, while it is on, there is a heavy, constant drain on Maxine's body, leading to extreme weariness, hunger, addictions growing stronger, and other adverse effects. Too much use without rest will cause Maxine to pass out, starve to death, or lose control to her addictions. These gloves cannot leave Maxine. Any attempt to take them will find them magically back upon her person.

Ribbon Bracelet

On the 1st Ymiden, 719, Max finds a a small piece of ribbon, tied into a sort of bracelet. When she (if she) puts it on, she discovers that while wearing it she doesn't feel cold. It still impacts her, she can still get frostbite, but she won't feel it. Handy in the winter, though. (CiTW Event reward from Culinary).

Diri of Destruction

The Diri of Destruction has made a home in Maxine's shadow. Unless it chooses to manifest, that is where it remains, feeding off the destruction she inevitably causes one way or another. It is not always a silent companion. Now and then, depending on its level of satiation, it will whisper its impulsive desires and thoughts in her ear in an effort to tempt her or turn her against others. It is a selfish companion. When it does choose to manifest it tends to do so as a mockery of Max. Just as it did in The Lost, it will appear as a dark mirror image of her with red eyes. This can be as unsettling as it is problematic for a host of imaginable reasons.

1.) A high-energy ability, the Diri will manifest to aid Max will battle. Equipped with a sword and axe, the Diri will hack and slash through foes with an alarming power and efficiency only a spirit of its Purpose is capable. Its enemies will find their weapons and defenses hold up poorly against the Diri of Destruction's attacks. The spirit, like its companion, will battle and rage until exhaustion or defeat. If depleted of energy or wounded, the Diri will retreat back into Maxine's shadow from whence it came.

2.) Max has appeared unable to be contained for long and the same bears true for the Diri of Destruction. The spirit, in times of need, will recognize when the two of them are trapped by a barrier. Walls, cages, stone, and etc. will not be tolerated. The spirit will cast Maxine's shadow upon the obstacle, thereby detecting weak points in the structure. Once they are detected, the Diri will expend energy to quite literally, and destructively, render the barriers irrelevant. Materials that are divine or magically protected will likely prevent the Diri from destroying them.

3.) The third ability is the most sudden and perhaps most devastating. In dire circumstances, the Diri will meld with Max entirely. While it shares her form it will release a singular, massive, concussive blast (for a pre-determined distance the approving mod allows) expanding outward in every direction around her. The explosion, like any concussive wave, holds the ability to throwing enemies wildly off their feet and rupture hollow organs within their bodies. The devastation of the wave decreases with distance from the source.

A Man's Suit

Traitor's Ring

Unassuming and simple, the silver ring draws little attention to most eyes. It looks to be of little value and quality, but to the possessor's eyes alone, it tells many tales. The ring acts as a deceptive barometer for the shadier characters in life. When others are being successfully manipulated by the wearer's deception, whatever it may be, it appears to be a piece of stunning quality. The metal will shine brightly. Small gems will dazzle. Everything about its quality will mirror that of the liar's charm. When the opposite is true, the failure is evident in the appearance of the ring just the same. The metal will tarnish and become an ugly relic to behold, the cheapness of the material even coloring the skin around the wearer's finger unnaturally. Only the wearer is privy to the visual changes. Everyone else merely sees a mediocre, dime-a-dozen ring.

Wind Armor Bracelet

A plain silver bracelet. When Max wears it, it will invoke - once a trial - an armour made from hardened air. It is weighless and invisible, and provides the protection of a suit of full plate. Lasts for 1 break.

Loaded Dice

Two dice. Plain, ordinary dice. Except, once a trial you can will them to land how you want. Handy in a high-stakes game.

Chrien Talisman

Given to Maxine via Faith's will after her death with the message: "To Maxine. Wherever you are, it is my hope that you have found peace. I forgive you and I hope, in time, you forgive yourself."

This spiral shell necklace is a simple, gold talisman designed to look like a spiral shell. It has been placed on black ribbon to look inconspicuous. The less attention that is drawn to it, the less likely it's magic will be noticed. It is supposed to bring the owner bountiful fortune once an arc.

PSTF Thread Where Approved.
Gifted IC.

Transformation Gem

A transformation gem: A rainbow colored gemstone that is able to turn the bearer into a human for as long as the user holds/wears it on a piece of jewelry.

The human disguise only has one appearance associated with it that must be set upon the first use of the gem. Variations of height, hair color, skin color, and etc. within normal human ranges are all permitted for the one appearance associated with this gem.

Gifted here.

Good The Barghest

This Barghest can be considered to be of the best breeding and quality and training, and is absolutely obedient. To a point. It will not attack anything living. It can pin them down, or wrestle with living things, but it will not bring itself to harm any living thing through its own direct action.

It's special ability is that it can swallow anything of a certain size and volume. Anything that would easily fit down a large barghest's throat. There, anything that enters its digestive system will be dissolved entirely and permanently destroyed, if such items can be. This has no ill effects upon Good himself.

Originally ranted in this thread. Regifted by Mod again here.

Isra, Raven Curse Familiar

Isra is a solemn raven visible only to Maxine, others who are burdened by curses, and those affiliated with Famula. She tends to fly high overhead or occasionally perch nearby Maxine. While the bird is not unkind by nature she serves as a constant reminder Maxine bears the Condemned curse by Famula, an ominous creature whose presence never allows the woman to forget the fate that waits for her in death. Isra's black feathers seem to drip with blood and her eyes have a red iris like Famula. The bird wears chains to represent the chains of the curse and the tattooed links that remain over Maxine's heart. Isra is a physical manifestation of the reality Maxine will never truly be free. The bird is telepathic.


1.) Curse Origin: Isra is sensitive to the type of ether responsible for Maxine's curse. The raven can sense when Famula’s Zuuda, Famula’s Cursed, or something related to the Immortal is within range. Isra cannot detect the Immortal herself. Her eyes in flight are more attuned to finding traces of this type of ether as well, and she will pinpoint it quickly.

2.) Telepathy: Isra is a grim reminder of Maxine's curse. Now and then the bird will use this ability to warn Maxine of her fate when it seems forgotten. Isra can communicate and allow Maxine to see through her eyes for very brief glimpses of time. The raven is meant to remain with Maxine and will not leave the city or region she is in to provide any sort of reconnaissance elsewhere.

Approved here.

Malice, Kletier Vielkrontier Dragonet

Malice, ironically named for its apparent lack of capacity for any real aggression or malevolence, is Maxine's dragonet given to her after meeting Vielkrontier. Malice is about the size of the small egg he hatched from and bears a light green color to his scales. His many heads sit atop his bipedal body and his beady black eyes hold a playful kindness very unlike the nature of his dragon sire. He tends to follow Maxine wherever she goes.

Awarded here.

Delroth IOU

IOU One minor wish from Delroth, if it's within his purview and power. He won't do anything that makes himself look bad, bear in mind. This is mostly pertaining to his domains of Greed, Birds, Wind, and Vanity. From this thread.

Mercy's Embrace
“Mercy's Embrace”


Mercys Embrace is a master-crafted Gladius with a blade length of 68 cm(27 in), and a pommel length of 7 inches. The weapon has a total length of 34 inches, and the blade width of 2.5 inches; the blade is composed of embersteel, and is thus heavier than the average Gladius. As a result of the master-level of craftsmanship it is incredibly durable. The weapon possesses an elemental illusion thus it always appears to glow a bright cerulean hue, and the entire weapon from blade to pommel dances with azure flame. Max might notice that the weapon is far heavier than any of her older blades, and has a far more ornate design in the metal alone. The pommel of the weapon bares striking similarities to that of a long-sword. With a heavy pommel designed to deliver blunt force crushing blows, and a somewhat abrasive grip as to promote proper hand placement. Unlike the average gladius this one features a hand guard as to protect the wielder. Price deducted from Mercedes Ledger
