Tristan Venora

Image



Tristan Venora is a typical member of his family, striking and elegant. His skin is perhaps a bit paler than what is the norm for a member of the human race and unlikely to properly tan, even when exposed to sunlight for extended amounts of times. His hair is dark brown, nearly black and falls to his shoulders in loose curls.

He has intensely bright blue eyes, as blue as the sky on a clear day and long, dark eyelashes. His face is usually clean-shaven, with high cheekbones and lush, full lips. His body is slim and only very lightly muscled, and he is not particularly physically strong. All in all, he is beautiful rather than handsome. He does in fact look like an Edashaborn (Literally, his brother who looks exactly like him is one!).

His voice is in the middle of the baritone range and sounds slightly husky. When he speaks, he always enunciates his words clearly to make sure that he is not misunderstood.

Tristan looks the opposite of intimidating, due to his beauty, his slim build and his mediocre height. When he moves, he does so gracefully. He keeps his back perfectly straight most of the time, and he doesn't slouch.

Tristan's clothes tend to be elegant and fashionable, but not too flashy, and he dresses in a way that accentuates his body rather than hiding himself under some sort of sack cloth.

As of Zi'da 90, Arc 718, Tristan's fingers end in blackened, claw-like nails - Bellinos, the mark of Vri.

He also has silver runic markings on the left side of his face - Vaelus, the mark of Vhalar.



Tristan is not one of those people that are unsure of who they are and what they want from life. He is proud and ambitious, self confident and straightforward in approaching others. There is nothing shy or introverted about him, although he may seem like that to others every now and then.

Tristan is an extremely curious young man and wants to learn everything he can about anything. He sees the world as one big playground full of secrets that are waiting to be uncovered. He is passionate, both when it comes to love and hatred and does not forgive people who betray his trust and abuse his friendship easily.

Once upon a time, Tristan was rather eccentric, with a somewhat skewed moral compass. He's matured a lot though. He doesn't associate with questionable people anymore, and he disapproves of slavery. He still likes quirkly things though!



Birth
Tristan was born on the 3rd day of Ashan, Arc 695 – on Nora’s Birthday. That circumstance affected his life from the beginning in his opinion. The first queen of Rynmere was beloved, she had a reputation of being kind and just. Tristan’s parents, Noah and Shannon Venora, had high expectations of their son because of it. The wanted their first child to become just like Queen Nora which unfortunately didn’t work out. Since people always went on about Queen Nora, and he could never celebrate his birthday in peace, Tristan loved her a little less than the rest of Rynmere. He was usually drunk on Nora's Birthday.
Early Childhood
Tristan led a very sheltered life as a child. He was his parent’s firstborn son and thus especially spoiled, even after his siblings had been born. He learned to walk a little later than most other children. When people commented on that, he usually claimed that he could of course already walk at that age, but that he enjoyed being carried around so much more! Why walk when you could have other people walk for you?

Once he had finally figured out what to do with his feet, nothing could stop him though.

While he was a little behind other children as far as his physical development was concerned, he learned to talk very early – and he talked a lot. He was an extremely curious child that wanted to know everything about anything. Why is the sky blue? Why do we practice Rynlism? Why can’t Queen Nora just celebrate her birthday on another day so that I can have that day for myself? I’m importanrt as well!

Even at that early age, Tristan’s artistic talent was obvious. He loved to draw and paint, and if he didn’t have any paper left, he would just draw on the walls of his room. He also made little sculptures of clay or wood or a crazy mixture of different materials. They were not very good in his opinion, but his parents liked them so much that they felt the need to foster his talents. They sent for an artist that had been trained at the University of Rynmere so that he would be able to teach the boy, in a way that was appropriate for a child that had not even begun school yet. Tristan absolutely loved those early lessons.
School
At the age of seven Tristan was sent to school, much to his chagrin. He would have preferred to be homeschooled like some of his friends. His parents thought that it would be good for him if he came in contact with children from all kinds of different backgrounds though. They were a little concerned about the way he socialized. He had a rather unique personality and was just a hint too arrogant.

He disliked school almost from the beginning, despite his nearly insatiable thirst for knowledge. The other children were fun – they usually felt drawn to him because of his looks and his personality - but the teachers were a different matter. They always insisted on giving him homework. He didn’t understand why they did that and why he should do homework when he already knew everything anyway! He told them that more than once, which made them even angrier than they had been to begin with.

The worst thing about his teachers was the fact that they were monks though. Even before he started caring about things like love and sex, Tristan was suspicious of men that claimed to be all noble and peaceful and have no need for a lover or a spouse. In his opinion their lives were extremely boring!

Outside of school Tristan’s lessons continued, as was the norm for a highborn child. He was also taught about subjects such as etiquette and politics by a private tutor. His parents also wanted him to learn to dance. As the firstborn son of a noble it was essential for him to know how to comport himself among the members of the high society of Andaris and know how to talk to those that were of a higher station than him, including the royal family.
University and Beyond
Since he was a talented artist and enjoyed creating things, Tristan decided to study sculpting at the University of Rynmere once he had finished school. It was fun, and it was a respectable job for a man of his station.

Sculpting alone never satisfied him though. He had always had a little rebellious streak. He was not content with sitting at university or in school and looking pretty like all other Venora children. He wanted more from life. He wanted to experience everything and learn everything, no matter whether it was considered good or bad. Even when he had still been in school, he would sometimes sneak out of his room at night and explore the city and everything Andaris had to offer.

He especially enjoyed visiting the Fighting Pits – and still does. He even sponsored a mercenary himself at one point. The man won a couple of fights and earned him a fair amount of money before he unfortunately died. Since then Tristan just watches the fights, although he is sometimes tempted to find a new mercenary or even buy a slave that he can force to fight to the death in the pit.

Tristan also began to seek the company of thieves and pirates, despite the dangers involved in such encounters. One of his best friends during his time at the university was a prostitute. That friendship was enlightening in more than one way. He learned just as much from that friendship – and from his other contacts - as he learned in school, although most upstanding citizens would disapprove of the things he had learned.

Tristan could never explain why he felt so drawn to the questionable elements of society – he still can’t. He didn’t care about the reason anyway. All that mattered was that he was having fun. When he spent time with his so called friends, he sometimes pretended to be a man of very questionable reputation and a notorious gambler as a noble would not be welcome in those circles. He was in fact convinced that his friends would just kidnap him and demand ransom if they knew who he really was. He didn't mind that though. If their roles were reversed, he would happily have done the same.

Sometimes he also pretended to be the king though. Who doesn't want to be king?

Living the life of a noble sometimes felt like a chore to Tristan, although he definitely liked the prestige that came with being a member of Andaris' high society.

He dreaded the trial when he would have to choose though.

Tristan Venora



Elithem

Favored
  • Musical Enchantment (Minor)
    The character is able to control the emotions of a crowd within a short area around them and for a very short period of time while playing or singing music.
  • Eye of the Beholder (Minor)
    At this level, the character has only enough control to cover small parts of their body with the aura of Elithem, causing all who look upon them to see only pleasant, attractive, desirable features. This ability lasts for a short period of time.
  • Passionate Skills I
    Add an extra three skill points to one of the following skills: Any Musical Instrument skill, Singing, Seduction, or Persuasion.
  • Mesmerize
    Character is able to control the attention and actions of an individual (1 person) through song or instrument for a short amount of time. (This is not to be used as a form of god modding, the PC is allowed to decline and/or resist any commands given. This skill is used is to be used as a means of coaxing someone.)
  • Words of Empowerment (Minor)
    Can be in the form of poetry, lyrics, or speech. The character is able to empower and buff a single person or themselves with strength and focus. The effects only last for a short period of time.
  • Steadfast
    When this ability is in use, character is able to perform enormous feats of strength for a short amount of time. (Between 2-5 minutes)
  • Temptations (Minor)
    When in use, the Elithem aura is able to extend briefly from the character to another individual within arms reach. The aura acts as a transmitter and receiver, implanting suggestions into the person's thoughts while the character receives impressions of the individuals' interests and desires. The ability may only be used on 1 person at a time.(Certain skills, like meditation, may prevent this ability from working.)
  • Elithem's Light (Minor)
    The aura is able to envelop the character for a short period of time, allowing them to recover from being dazed. Light emits from them during this time, resisting any and all toxins that prevent consciousness and acts as a barrier against the character and the outside world. This ability is a trigger effect and will automatically activate when the player is dazed. It will last only until the character regains full consciousness. This ability has the potential to massively drain the character's energy.
  • Musical Enchantment (Moderate)
    After two song progressions, whether by musical instrument or singing, the character is able to mesmerize and control a decently sized crowd around them. They are able to send out strong emotional suggestions to their audience that may be either positive or negative. Depending on the strength of the suggestions and the individual's mentality, the character is able to implant emotional memories into the minds of the people, causing them to have false memories of certain events.


Adored
  • Energy Preservation
    This ability acts as a simple buff and allows the character to have better control and focus over their abilities for a longer period of time. However, to use this ability effectively, the character must rest for 12 hours.
  • Passionate Skills II
    The character is granted an extra six skill points which may be spent only on the following skills: Any Musical Instrument skill, Singing, Seduction, or Socialization. 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.
  • Words of Empowerment (Moderate)
    Can be in the form of poetry, lyrics, or speech. The character is able to empower and buff a small crowd and/or themselves with strength and focus. The effects are almost always felt and can raise anyone from the depths of despair. The buff lasts for a period of time.

Vaelus

  • Autumn's Servant
    This ability grants the Vaelus a small Autumn spirit familiar. Taking the physical manifestation of autumn leaves, and the strong smell of a Harvest, this spirit is not one granted for combat but rather for protection. The spirit can innately communicate when something the Favored is about to eat is rotten, altered, or poisoned. Ordinarly it is a patient and quiet spirit, communicating in simple concepts and generally enjoying the Favored's presence.Should this spirit ever be destroyed it will take one whole Cycle before another will come.
  • Art Works (1 Color)
    For Vhalar, there is no greater pursuit than that of an artist. This ability works off that artist's skill of creation. Drawing, Painting, or Sculpting are the skills used in tangent with this power specifically, although some dancers and poets have found some success utilizing it as well. This ability allows the artist to create a small item from a special Immortal paint they can draw from their mark. Usually this item can be no larger than a long sword and must be a simple item. 1 color refers to the first color of Vhalar's palette that the Favored has to draw from. This can be any color but it is the only color that can be used with this ability. Creations last only a few breaks before dissolving and this ability cannot be used more than twice a trial at this level.
  • Discipline Skills I
    Add an extra three skill points to one of the following skills: Any Weapons skill, Socialization, Linguistics, or Leadership.
  • Crafting Creations
    This ability allows the character to make things not normally appealing into fashionable, protective, tasteful items or food. Acting as a buff, the character has a greater chance of crafting exceptional items. Any artwork or general crafts made by the Vaelus sells for 25% more than the list price.
  • Lesser Oath
    The Favored is able to put the force of Vhalar behind small promises. Only one oath may be active at any time and the other party must willingly swear to honor the oath. This oath is minor and can only be as complicated as a simple act of service. Should this act be performed to expectation, the one the Favored pacted with will enjoy unexpected fortune for the next three trials. Should they fail to honor the bargain, however, either party will begin to face a series of unexpected setbacks and accidents till the debt is honored. This oath cannot be struck over an impossible task nor done so with hidden intentions.
  • Uplifting Hymn
    A song normally conducted through chant and drum. This ability is often performed for a small group of people and serves as an empowering rally. This ability sends out subtle suggestions to the surrounding audience of unity and strength. Often times, the ability is used to form a subtle, weak bond with the group of people. This Hymn can banish artificially and naturally created fear. Any fear based ability used by a marked of higher tier than the Vaelus will not be effected by this Hymn.
  • Blood Bond (Minor)
    This ability may only be used on one other person as it has the power to connect both the character and the individual to each other. When the blood bond is made, an oath is taken between two people, an oath of service and alliance. Only one such Bond can be active for the Vaelus. After the bond is made, both characters are linked mentally, though they may only feel impressions of the other's thoughts. The blood bond must be honored. Whomever breaks the sanctity of this Oath on their blood will be denied the benefit of it. Until reparations and forgiveness is granted for the breach in the oath, the one who breaks it will find their blood will no longer clot.

Bellinos

  • Final Moment
    When working with a Pier & Pre-marked who is using their ability of the same name, the Bellinos can use this ability to work in tandem with the Gwelliph. Final Moment allows the Vri-marked to share and experience the death of an individual; the Gwelliph is able to ‘tune in’ to this and do the same. When working alone, this ability is as shown below:

    A Favored of Vri has the ability to experience the last few minutes of a corpse’s life. They experience the death as if it were happening to them and only come out of the trance when the experience has ended. This is always a jarring and emotionally devastating ability to use as one can never quite get ‘used’ to dying, but it can reveal remarkable clues and insights as to the wishes or circumstances behind a death. A body must be presented, mostly intact (Within a Cycle or two of age), for the ability to work.

    However, by working in unison, the Gwelliph and Bellinos are both able to see, feel and fully experience the death of the individual and can also see their past. The whole life is opened up before the blessed, who has access to all memories and emotions of the deceased. This can be incredibly overwhelming and requires high levels of Discipline or Meditation in order to withstand. If either the Gwelliph or the Bellinos are overwhelmed during this process, it is likely to cause medium to long term psychological problems; these might be things such as getting memories confused, losing one’s own memories for a time etc.
  • Death's Pallor
    A Favored of Vri understands the nature of life and death better than any. This ability allows a user to suspend their bodily functions and fall into a death-like trance. Unless another marked of Vri is in attendance, this act is almost impossible to see through without a mastery in the medicinal or surgical field. When entering this suspension, the body effectively acts dead. Limbs stiffen, skin pales, and eyes become cloudy. Any wounds suffered by the marked will bleed coagulated blood. Some marked, after receiving a grievous wound, will leave instructions to fetch a doctor and suspend themselves in the state till help arrives. The marked must define how long they intend to stay in this state. At Favored, the time cannot exceed three trials. At Adored this time cannot exceed a single cycle. Likewise at Adored this ability can be transferred to another, although only one use of this power may remain active at a time. Supposedly there is no upper limit on how long an exalted or Champion can remain in this deathless trance, although none dare exit the world for too long. The body will not decay in this state, appearing freshly slain for the entirety of the duration. A marked can be killed in this state if irreparable harm is done to the body, in which case the state will become permanent upon the ending of the ability.
  • Deathkeeper's Skills I
    The character is granted an extra three skill points which may be spent only on the following skills: Interrogation, Investigation, Meditation, Detection. 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.
  • Eidetic
    Those marked by Vri aren’t able to forget anything they have been exposed to or seen within their lifetime. The marked can recall events, conversations, and picture moments with perfect clarity, no matter what time frame within their life they draw the memory from.
  • Genetic Memory (Minor)
    As a domain, Remembrance is often overlooked by those who follow Vri. Although of vital importance, few pay it the proper homage it’s due. Most take it for granted. Those who follow Vri know differently, however. Memory is a record of the past and in that past, answers to current problems can be found. This ability relies on the creative powers of the player to help describe, but can be immensely valuable to the marked. Entering into a meditative trance, a marked of Vri can step ‘back’ two generations of their lineage seeking the answer to a problem. These answers come in the forms of visions, snatches of imagery and experience. Some with this ability spend many trials poring through the lives of their parents and their parents parents, hungry for experience and knowledge. This ability cannot be used on those who are already alive as they must have passed through Vri’s hands to be applicable. If one's father still draws breath, this ability cannot look into their lives. Only the dead may whisper their secrets through genetic experience.
  • Durge's Stain
    For the marked of Vri, Death becomes a tangible force. Those with this ability require but a few moments of concentration to know if death occurred in a building or locale around them. They will always know exactly how many have died and the area in which the body fell. Even if the death is ages old, a marked of Vri can find the exact spot they breathed their last. Without a body, the marked can determine little else but vague impressions in the nature of the death (Violence, age, sickness), but this ability has been used before to aid investigations on where the scene of a murder really happened and whether further investigation is warranted. The marked, when touching the spot of death, can determine the age, name (The name the deceased most identified with), and sex of the individual who passed.
  • Memento
    Memory is tangible, it has a weight. All experiences have a power to them. A marked of Vri can designate objects as Memento’s, specially enchanted items that hold memories. Most small objects can hold, at most, a single uninterrupted memory. It is said that working with a master crafter, specialized memento’s can be created but at this level, only one memory can be stored per object. When the memory is stored the user has a choice, to share the memory completely and sever it from their own mind, or share an echo of it. The echo will be muted, not completely clear, as if experiencing things through a heavy curtain. Usually this will still be enough to communicate the experience, but to truly have the owner of a memento experience the memory, it must be cut away entirely from the mind of the one giving it. Once tasked, the Memento can impart this memory to anyone who holds the object next. At this level, the memory is limited. The first other person to touch the object will receive the memory, causing the Memento to once again be only an object. A marked can either task their own memories, or the willing memories of another. At Exalted level, a Grand Memento can be crafted which will always hold its memory, never relinquishing the charge when gifting it to another. Those who are Vri’s champions can create Echo Mementos, which can include every memory within a Champion’s life. Sometimes such rare objects are left as guides to new Champions, who can ask a facsimile personality created by the memories for guidance and wisdom.
  • Lament's Judge
    Sorrow is the domain of Vri and his marked hold a special relationship with the emotion. Lament’s Judge is an ability which can only be used when sorrow has manifested. The marked contains the ability to reach out and pluck the sorrow from the heart of another, taking it into themselves instead. They can allay the sadness of the aggrieved by imbibing their emotions through touch and experiencing them firsthand. This ability can be dangerous for a marked as Sorrow is an endless chalice and to drink too deep of it is to invite madness. That said, the marked have been known to bring momentary relief to those stricken by despair. When a marked chooses to take sorrow, they remove the ability for the target to feel sorrow over a specific subject for the remainder of the Trial. Instead, the marked will bare the weight. They will grieve the dead as ardently as a lover, even if they never knew them. At the end of the Trial, the ability ends and the target can once again feel the emotions. The reverse of this ability allows a marked to conjure up deep sorrow from their own life and then pass it to a victim. This ability works the same way, one Trial of sorrow over a specific subject while the marked would feel calm and peace.
  • Love's Caress
    Love is an important domain expressed by the Immortal and thus, is reflected within the abilities of those he marks. This ability is only found when a marked individual has acknowledged their true love and vise versa, allowing the two to telepathically connect to one another. This connection is soul binding, where the two may feel the emotions of the other, sometimes the physically touches of the other, or hear the thoughts of the other, depending on how focused the two are when attempting to communicate. No matter the distance, this connection will always provide communication between the two. However, this communication may be blocked or disrupted by certain magics and/or with meditation.

Capstones:

Alchemy Capstone #1: Spirit Tongue Elixirs
In 717, Tristan invented a potion that enables you to talk to cats during an adventure in the Misty Miasma, with the Diplomat Scroll Lily, a plant that gives you an intuitive understanding of languages, as the key reagent.

He has finally moved beyond that first alchemical invention and managed to figure out a way to talk to more than just cats.

He can now make potions that enable you to talk to spirits that are associated with an alchemical quality that he has acquired knowledge of.

Apart from adding a reagent that has an effect that is similar to that of the Diplomat Scroll Lily in nature, Tristan does of course need to add a reagent that has the quality that the spirits that he wants the drinker of the potion to be able to talk to are associated with.

It is important to note that spirits don’t magically show up the moment someone drinks a Spirit Tongue Elixir. You still need to look for them. Furthermore, more powerful spirits require more potent reagents, otherwise the effect will leave something to be desired.

As this a capstone, there is no risk of backlash or toxicity as long as Tristan uses natural reagents for his Spirit Tongue Elixirs. (Approval)
Alchemy Capstone #2: Special Effects
Making useful things with alchemy has never been enough for Tristan. He also wants his creations to be interesting. When he was just starting out as an alchemist, he involuntarily produced things that emit smoke, smell strange, taste strange or are strangely colored due to his lack of skill.

Over the course of time, Tristan has managed to turn those alchemical mishaps into something amazing.

Through careful finetuning, Tristan has learned to add all kinds of special effects to his alchemical creations. A potion will not only make the drinker resistant to cold, for example, but also emit smoke that is reminiscent of a fire that has been lit to protect yourself against the chill. Another potion might start to make a sizzling sound if the vial is being opened, and sparks might briefly start to fly, or a certain smell might be noticed if an alchemically enhanced garment is activated.

These special effects can be on theme or not. They are only cosmetic in nature and afford no additional advantage. (Approval)
Etiquette Capstone #1: Impeccable Manners
Someone who has mastered the Etiquette skill possesses an extensive knowledge of the societal expectations and norms for most cultures and can smoothly fit in with most situations.

Tristan has moved beyond that.

He is so intricately familiar with social norms and expectations that he even manages to fit in with groups and cultures that he has not encountered yet or that he has had very little contact with so far, with cultures that may not even be native to the world of Idalos, predict what is expected of him and behave in a manner that they consider to be appropriate which ultimately makes it more likely for them to accept him and be favorably inclined towards him.

This includes the cat people that he briefly met in the Misty Miasma once upon a time, goblins and similar beings, but also undiscovered tribes and cultures, for example - or otherworldy beings, such as Emeyans. (Approval)
Etiquette Capstone #2: Appropriately Inappropriate
Tristan's practice of etiquette is at such a level that he can use a salad fork for steak and otherwise do things not appropriate to local etiquette but get away with it. Because he's so polite, it must be appropriate for him to do those things!

This capstone obviously doesn't allow Tristan to break the law. Minor to major social faux pas and things that might be considered rude are seen as perfectly acceptable and even proper though.(Approval)
Politics Capstone #1: Anti-Corruption
Tristan often has the needs of others in mind. As such, he can turn the principles of corruption on their head, and prompt a corrupt system to reverse course to the point where the governmental entity's charitable aspects become self-sustaining without outside donations.(Approval)
Politics Capstone #2: Ceasefire
Tristan has never been a violent man but believes that a diplomatic solution can nearly always be found, and that conflicts between different parties, from individual people over groups to entire nations, can nearly always be resolved without the use of weapons if you only know how.

With a few words to either party he can arrange a ceasefire of hostilities and bring two parties together for a limited time in peace, in order to accomplish a series of settlements or compromises that are mutually agreeable, enough to cease hostilities almost indefinitely. (Approval)
Sculpting Capstone #1: Galatea
This ability allows Tristan to create statues that are capable of movement and sound. A casual observer might think that they are alive, but upon closer inspection it is obvious that they are not. Tristan’s statues do not walk around. Their movement is static, and they are incapable of executing more than one action and interacting with their environment in any meaningful way.

A statue of a dancer will only ever do that, dance, stop and then begin her dance anew, never changing or growing tired, and a statue of a bird will flap its wings, but never fly away. By adding an alchemical trigger, Tristan might be able to create a statue that reacts to a loud sound for example, but never more than that. He cannot really create life.

Somebody listening to one of Tristan’s statues might hear a cry, a scream or a whisper, but they will never hear what those whispers are, although the sound of one of his birds sounds almost like the real deal. On the other hand it might just be due to the clever use of physics as well as certain materials. (Approval)
Writing Capstone #1: Empathic Characters
When writing a work of fiction, be it a play, novel, or poem, Tristan's mastery of characterization and written language allow him to make characters that resonate emotionally with the readers, listeners or viewers. Tristan can spend fifteen bits per character before writing them into the work developing, brainstorming and visualizing the character, and when he introduces them into the work, the reader, listener or viewer can plainly see them exactly as Tristan intended them to be seen, as if they were real. For novels and poems, the characters appear distinctly in the readers' and listeners' minds, acting out whatever the narrative expresses. For plays, the actor themselves appear as the character was intended, so long as they stay in that character until they are finished portraying them. (Approval)

Re: Tristan Venora



Brandon

Name: Brandon
Race: Human
Date of Birth: Ymiden 35, Arc 792
Skills: Blades, Shortsword (30), Acrobatics (20), Stealth (20), Lock Picking (15), Cryptography (10), Intelligence (5)
Appearance: Bradon is average in every way. He stands at a mediocre 5’11”, he is neither overweight nor underweight, he wears plain clothes, and his hair and his eyes are just brown. The only thing about him that is out of the ordinary is a scar on his left cheek that he got during a fight – or so he claims.
Personality: Brandon has a practical attitude towards all things in life. In his opinion something’s only illegal if you get caught. He used to work in a number of different jobs. He was a caravan guard, an information broker, a waiter in the Blacksmith Arms in Andaris, he once broke into a house, and he is currently in the employ of the new Duke of Oakleigh, an old friend of his that he used to play cards with back when life was much simpler.
Relationship to PC: Bodyguard/Spy
Approval

Lianne

Name: Lianne
Race: Human
Age: 25
Blessings: -
Skills: Lianne is very good (ooc think about expert level) at the following skills: Dagger, Unarmed Combat, Politics, Acting.
Description: Lianne has worked as a servant since she was a young woman ~ her parents died when she was 14 and she needed to get a job to look after her two younger brothers. She did that for a long time, although both of her brothers were killed in the Qe'dreki Civil War. She will eventually tell Tristan the story of how the Empress herself found Lianne, sitting in the Temple after the war, feeling completely lost and alone. Emerson Sands saw the young woman and was kind to her. Lianne told her about her brothers, about how she felt lost and Emerson took her in. Lianne has worked as Emerson's personal servant and bodyguard since then. She has seen first hand the love grow between Emerson and Cassander and she says that they seem genuinely happy together.

If Tristan wants it, Lianne is happy to advise him on politics and so on, but mostly she's happy to drink wine (nearly as much as him... nearly!) and have fun with him. However, if he is attacked she will act with immediate and deadly effect. She always has at least three or four daggers secreted about her person at any one time.

Moderator's Note: This npc was granted by Pegasus. Please check the post in Tristan's Prophets' Notes for full information.

Lianne was gained here.

Hannah

Name: Hannah
Race: Human
Date of Birth: Cylus 7, Arc 793
Skills: Longsword (30), Detection (30), Strength (20), Endurance (20), Mount (Land) (26)
Appearance: Hannah stands at 5’8” and is of medium weight. She has a round face with hazel eyes and lots of freckles and auburn hair that she keeps comparatively short so that nobody will be able to grab it during a fight. She’s tanned and toned and wears practical clothes when she’s working. When she’s off work though, she really likes frilly and girly things!
Personality: Hannah, the daughter of a tavernkeeper from Andaris, is a cheerful young woman with a wicked sense of humor. She’s not as stiff as one commonly expects a professional guard to be – although she takes her job very seriously. She loves to flirt with men and women alike, and she really likes dogs which is something that her employer who is a cat person through and through doesn't understand.
Relationship to PC: Bodyguard
Skill Points Ledger: 26 Mount (Land) (PB points)

Koral

Name: Koral
Race: Tunawa
Date of Birth: Saun 3, Arc 701
Skills: Gardening 40, Medicine 40, Blades (One-Handed) 30, Musical Instrument (Wind) 30, Storytelling 30, Endurance 30, Teaching 30, Discipline 20
Appearance: Koral is the smallest of the three Tunawa that were found near one of the longhouses of House Imair in Cylus 721. She stands at no more than 10” and has beautiful turquoise skin and long graceful limbs. Her hair is lightly colored, almost white, like snow, in fact and very silky, with little flowers on them, and her features are delicate, with big dark eyes. She is not ashamed of being naked, but will decorate her body with feathers, silk and dried leaves when she is surrounded by members of the big races.
Personality: Koral is a calm and quiet Tunawa most of the time, and she worries about the future a fair bit. She can also be more extroverted and optimistic though. When she’s in a good mood, she loves to talk about her people, and about plants and healing, which are two of her passions, and she plays music. Despite her size, Koral is not helpless. The events of Cylus 721 prove that she’s a survivor, and she also knows how to use a little knife quite well – or even two little knives at the same time.

Ayla

Image
Name: Ayla Venora
Race: Mortalborn (Syroa x Human)
Date of Birth: Ashan 92, Arc 717
Skills: Socialization 30, Etiquette 20, Dancing 20, Gardening 10, Writing 10, Art 10
Appearance: Unlike other Mortalborn children, Ayla does not resemble her Immortal mother. Shortly after her birth, Aelig and Syroa wove a powerful glamour over the child. Into this glamour, elements of Tristan Venora and his former slave Faith were mixed. As a result, Ayla looks almost like a duplicate of Faith. The only obvious influence from her father are her eyes that are a striking blue, like the iridescence of a storm cloud before lightning strikes. At the beginning of her life, Ayla aged faster than a normal child. As a consequence, she appears to be approximately two arcs older than she really is.
Personality: Ayla possesses the same warm, innocent curiosity as her father, and the same creativity. She is a mostly happy child that is polite to the people around her and sometimes, when she is in an unfamiliar environment, a little shy. The aspect of her personality that most obviously resembles her Immortal mother’s is her ability to capture and maintain the attention of those around her. She does that without being manipulative though.

Granny Ebony

Name: Ebony Venora
Created by: Alistair
Race: Human
Date of Birth: 3rd of Cylus, Arc 647
Title: Ex-Duchess of Venora as of Ashan 2 717
Blessings/Curses: N/A
Skills: Leadership: 75, Politics: 55, Deception: 40, Etiquette: 35, Intelligence: 30, Discipline: 26, Business Management: 25
Description: Duchess Ebony of Venora is known to be an incredibly traditional woman, one who firmly supports the divide between noble and lowborn. She is not known to be greatly loved by the people, but rather respected, and adored by the nobility. She has ruled as Duchess of Venora for 38 years, placed as the heir of Venora after the tragic and sudden passing of her brother Wolsingham at a Knight's tourney, one where an upstart count drugged his horse which resulted in his dismounting and the breaking of his neck.

This was said to have inspired a change in her to become a proper Lord, provoking authority and demanding the loyalty of her vassals. Since then, she has also given more and more counties and baronies to Venora cadet branches rather than other, rival families, ensuring the family remain strong within the Duchy.

Now, in her old age, she is ready to retire to the town of Lamonte on the coast, living on a beachfront home her family has owned; one she's visited each year, and one she hopes to die in with her aging husband, Karl Venora (nee Warrick).
Relationship to PC: Grandmother
Skill Points Ledger: 26 Discipline (PB points), 10 Leadership (Ashan 722)
Notes: Awarded in this review.

Approval

Shannon Venora

Name:Shannon Venora
Race: Human
Date of Birth: Ashan 40, Arc 662
Skills: Politics 30, Etiquette 30, Dancing 30, Art 10
Appearance: Shannon Venora is a relatively tall woman, standing at 5’8”. She has black and slightly curly hair that is showing the first hints of grey and vivid blue eyes. In spite of having given birth two four children, she has remained relatively slender, and she is graceful and in good shape, despite her somewhat advanced age due to dancing regularly.
Personality: Shannon Venora, née Meadow, is an elegant and well-mannered woman, without being stuck-up or arrogant and interested in fashion, dancing and literature. She has lived most of her life among the members of Rynmere’s high society and been rather privileged; for that reason, she has had a hard time adjusting to life as a commoner at first.

Shannon’s marriage to Duchess Ebony Venora’s second son Noah was arranged. At first, she voiced her displeasure at being told to marry a man that was seven arcs her junior, a man that she barely knew and didn’t think she would have much in common with due to their age difference, but she eventually fell in love with him and gave birth to four children in quick succession. She still loves her husband deeply almost thirty arcs later.

Shannon is mostly happy despite the hardships that she has faced; there are moments where she is a little melancholic though and can’t help but mourn the loss of her home and most of her family.

skills
politics 30/100 [competent]
leadership 30/100 [competent]
socialization 30/100 [competent]
blades: one-handed 10/100 [novice]

personality
Fond is the best way to describe Noah; fond of his position, his life, his wife, his children. Noah has most always been content to live his life as a baron, glad to imbibe of the wealth and status of his family. That is not to say that Noah is greedy or arrogant; on the contrary, he has a kind heart and a likability that most find difficult to disagree with. Mostly, Noah just wants to be happy and let others deal with the tragedies of life.

history
Noah Venora has lived a simple life, for being a noble. His mother, Ebony Venora, is a very strict woman with very particular views about what it means to be nobility. As such, early in life Noah agreed to an arranged marriage with a noble woman whom he later found love with, Shannon Meadow. Noah and Shannon promptly produced four heirs, including two sons Tristan and Teddy.

However, like many, Noah made mistakes in his youth. He found himself, around the time of his engagement, to be in an adulterous relationship with another woman. The woman, who was more beautiful than any woman he'd ever met before, said her name was Ambrosine. Though their time spent together was defiantly public, it was not to last. By the end of the Vhalar of their love, Noah was married to Shannon Meadow. It seemed that Ambrosine was there one day; gone mysteriously the next.

Over time, Noah's memories of Ambrosine have faded as he turned his affections to his wife and children. Nowadays, he thinks little of his past love, if at all.

other
Noah doesn't know that the woman he had an affair with, Ambrosine, was the immortal Edasha. Neither does he know that, when she left, she was pregnant with his first son, Hart.

timeline
early Vhalar, 691
Noah Venora and Shannon Meadow are courting. They are engaged to be married.
Edasha meets Noah in Rynmere. They begin an adulterous relationship.
late Vhalar, 691 Noah and Shannon are married. Edasha disappears from Noah's life.
23rd Ymiden, 692 Hart, Noah and Edasha's son, is born.
3rd Ashan, 695 Tristan, Noah and Shannon's son, is born.
Arc 697 Noah and Shannon have a daughter.
Arc 698 Noah and Shannon have their second daughter.
15th Ymiden, 699 Theodore, Noah and Shannon's second son, is born.

the Rynmere plague
With the collapse of Venora, Noah has migrated from the capital city of Sabaissant, where he used to live. Having lost his home and much else, Noah now spends his time with Tristan, his son.

notes
Ebony Venora, Noah's mother, is a noble NPC of Venora with an NPC writeup, here.
Noah Venora is a noble NPC of Venora, listed in Venora's noble lines, here.
Noah was previously approved as an NPC in Hart's mortalborn approval, here.
This writeup is much like the previous writeup, but some edits have been made.

With this approval, Noah will remain a part of Hart's mortalborn story as his father, and will be linked to on Hart's CS, but will be Tristan Venora's personal NPC.

PSF Approval: Noah as Tristan's Personal NPC.
Chester
Chester, Diri Familiar of Communication

Appearance: Takes on an appearance of a cat ensconced with an aurora.

Personality: Chatty, friendly, and sometimes pushy.

Diri of Communication's Abilities:

Omnilingualism: Three times per trial, for a break each in each instance, Tristan can speak and understand any language. Language barriers don't apply while this power is active.

Perfect Communication: When people whisper, mumble, or even make the slightest sound that's detectable to Tristan, he can overhear them and understand clearly what they say and what they mean by what they say. Even coded language will hold no secrets from Tristan.

Bridging the Gap: At any time, Tristan and Ashling can communicate with each other, although this communication is gated by a willingness from either one of them to receive or give the communication. They cannot read each others' minds against their will, but can share thoughts seamlessly when there is a mutual willingness. Chester will not intrude upon Ashling's mind at all, through this link, nor will Tristan ever be able to perceive or communicate with Kyrie without that spirit's consent.

There may be other powers that can be unlocked, to a maximum of five including these three. Should you wish to pursue other abilities, submit them to the PSF including stories where Chester appears, and his concept is utilized/satisfied. This power acquisition works much like mark progression.

Awarded in this thread.

Telepathic Link: This allows Tristan to establish a telepathic link with any one person. The link remains as long as he desires, though they must consciously end it when they wish to. This allows Tristan and their chosen recipient to speak back and forth telepathically. Verbal nuances such as sarcasm or tone are indistinguishable at this level, but they may relay whatever information they want. (Awarded here.)

Signature Items

Item Name: Karl Venora’s Watering Can
Quality: Good
Item: Watering Can
Base Material: Gold and silver
Details: Once upon a time, the duchy of Venora was famous for its flowers, and especially for its roses. The late Duke Karl Venora spent a considerable amount of time in the gardens. He was said to have had something of a green thumb. He also had a little secret though. In his youth, he had managed to acquire a magical watering can made of gold with silver ornaments.

Plants that are watered with said watering can, begin to show signs of accelerated growth after only a few trials. They grow twice as fast as they normally would, and parasites and plant diseases affect them much less frequently. Even plants that come from different climate zones do better.

In winter, the watering can’s power is muted, but it is far from absent. Where indoor plants and greenhouses are concerned, the effect is equally strong throughout the arc.

The can has enough magic in order to service an individual garden of any size short of a castle grounds once a trial.

Item Name: Nora’s Seed Box
Quality: Good+
Item: Seed Box
Base Material: Gemini Wood with Grave Gold hinges
Description: Nora’s seed box, named after the first queen of Rynmere, has been in the possession of House Venora for generations. It has been enchanted with powerful magic, perhaps the same magic that fills Duke Karl’s watering can.

Nora’s seed box is a square box that is made of blackened Gemini Wood from Scalvoris, which makes it very sturdy and resistant to the elements and which is likely one of the reasons why it is still in such good condition after all that time. The lid is decorated with a beautiful inlay ornament in white and different shades of grey, an Ouroboros, a Jacadon that is eating its own tail, the symbol of the now lost Kingdom of Rynmere.

The hinges of the box are made of Grave Gold, a type of metal that doesn’t rust.

The inside of the box consists of six compartments with lids, each one decorated with a smaller Ouroboros.

Once a cycle, the compartments can be opened in order to reveal their magic. Each compartment produces ten common or uncommon seeds for the same plant – meaning that the box produces a maximum of sixty seeds for six different common or uncommon plants per cycle.

Every once in a while, one of the compartments also produces a small number of rare seeds instead. In such a case, moderator approval is necessary before the seeds can appear and be used by Tristan in a thread.

Once the seeds have been removed, the lid of the compartment in question cannot be opened again for another cycle.

Vhalar 721: Acquired a Tier 10 house in the Glass Quarter in Rharne.
► Show Spoiler
Zi'da 719: Relinquished old house, moved into new Tier 8 house in Raelia/Melrath.

The house has one small room, three average rooms, three large rooms and one huge room with good+ quality furnishings. It is luxurious, not only in design, but also in aesthetics.
Rynmere Housing (Probably irrelevant now.)
When he's in Oakleigh, Tristan lives in his estate.

He also owns a small house in Andaris though. It consists of a bedroom, a small bathroom and a living room with a kitchen area. These rooms measure 200 square feet altogether.

Next to the living room is a small windowless storage closet that measures about 50 square feet. Tristan's slave Faith lived there until he freed her.

Tristan also owns a sculptor's workshop that is attached to the house. It measures 220 square feet and has stone walls and a single window.

Finally, there is a garden measuring 1375 square feet.

A black tomcat that is called Mistral because of his fierce temper lives with Tristan. Mistral is probably part demon and the leader of a cat gang that terrorizes the neighbourhood.
