Antagonist NPCs

Image
Every story needs a villain, right?

If you have claimed a Calendar Event, Bounty, Odd Job, etc - if you have a story you're telling in Scalv - then you're going to need an antagonist! This is where you can quick-dev one for your RP pleasure.

Use this thread to create NPC antagonists. They might be one-off story pieces, or they might be someone you think of and just submit here. This will allow consistency between players and will mean that you can have more skilled NPCs than the usual "faceless" ones being played consistently without needing to go through the full approval process.

As long as the NPC meets the requirements / restrictions below, you may play them immediately and don't need to wait for approval. They should be submitted before the thread starts, however, you just don't need to wait for approval. Also - please still be aware that Scalvoris is a place with a military and laws etc. Please play within the context of Scalv, and don't go overboard. Maybe your new arch-nemesis is below!

The Antagonists are sorted by Role - as in the Role they will play in the movie of your PCs life.

Nazik is a scrawny guy - not fit to punch a pillow - but he figures at the right price anyone would do anything.

Appearance: As with most of his kind, Naddar has a plant-like hue and might be described to be of average appearance for his age. He likes to keep himself well presented, clean and precise.
Personality / Quirks: He sports a slender frame and a disapproving 'resting face' that is not tempered by his superiority complex. He has an unwavering attention to detail and a tendency for the practice of perfectionism. This is not always a good combination, where time constraints are concerned, Naddar firmly believes such things to be a concern purely for those of an 'inferior skill and intellect'.

Skills: Gardening: Expert, Alchemy: Expert, Hunting: Competent, Fieldcraft: Competent, Basketweaving: Competent. Brewing: Novice.
Personality / Quirks A maddened wizard living in a hut in the middle of the Sweetwine. He's taken to studying tunawa, and has captured several of them in the past in order to study them for his alchemy and gardening needs. He often takes more ingredients from his surroundings than he needs, often over-foraging entire groes of flowers and trees to near extinction.

He has a crooked nose, and a bald patch on the top of his scalp, with a graying wisp of hairs growing long around the balding patch. His chin has a few sparse whiskers that he often takes to twirling when deep in thought.

Any tunawa that he happens across, unless they are accompanied by another person, he will often attempt to trap and keep for his experiments.
Dates & Links Have Fun Storming the Castle - Konsu atttempts to capture Kisaik, but finds him a slippery tunawa. Kisaik uses his mark abilities and skills to help free a pair of tunawa females from his evil clutches, and absconds with them into the Sweetwine, with a promise of protection.

Swimming 30 Competent
Combat: Polearm 30 Competent
Linguistics 30 Competent

Hunting 10 Novice

Appearance/Biometrics: She appeared to have bluish skin with a pink underbelly. Her tentacles were as those of an octopus, and her upper body appeared more humanoid than most, with arms and hands as such, albeit scaled skin of the same color as the rest. Her head tails were gathered into a mess of small tentacles and greenish blonde hair, which fell to shoulder length. Her eyes were red.

Personality: A sultry yet no-nonsense mer woman, Qairona tends toward the civilized and is well adapted to Scalveen culture. As such, she gets on well with non=mer, preferring their company most times to that of her own. She's got a bit of an issue respecting the personal space of other people, possibly a hold-over from her tribal mer past, and enjoys personal contact a fair bit. That said, she's not at all flirty in the sense that she is almost entirely serious about her inclination to seduce humanoids. It's not a matter of romance, however, but of personal comfort and entertainment to her.

Backstory: A former tribal mer of the Akktava, she lived for at least a few decades among her own tribe before removing herself from that life for reasons that she is reluctant to share. At first, her task from the Akktava was to infiltrate Scalveen society, as an Element recruit. In time, however, as she got to know the Scalvorites and learn their ways she went 'native' so to speak. She learned to love the people and ways of Scalvoris, to the detriment of her own tribal loyalties.

She left the Elements as of 721, retiring from service in order to pursue self-employment as a mercenary.

Qairona has no love lost toward her former Tribe. She sees them as a threat to her life in Scalvoris, as the children of Chrien. That said, she's fairly open minded toward mer who are well-adjusted to life among the Scalveen.

He obeys Kenway out of fear more than loyalty and is driven by an urge to hunt and collect treasure. Apprehended 25 Ymiden ,721.

Location Scalvoris Town
Submitted by Goku
Role: Bad guy in scene 3
Skills: Seduction: expert, Socialization: expert, Deception: competent, Endurance: competent, Intelligence: competent, Tactics: novice, Cooking: Novice

Personality / Quirks Sunpha is a married woman to a businessman. She entertains herself by having affairs with people (typically her husband's employees) and relishing the inevitable consequences. Sometimes she let it slip to her husband so he’d seek revenge, other times she wanted only to get the workers in trouble for failing to successfully complete their job.

After the events of Ashan 15 721, with some encouragement from her husband, Sunpha has taken up (or been thrust into) a new hobby in an attempt to put her 'attentions' into something less 'adultery-ish' and a little more 'anything other than adultery-ish'. Backed by her husband's money, she intends to charm, seduce and deceive her way to success, which is something her husband is very happy to encourage, if the success means she continues to make tarts instead of being one.

Skills: Storytelling: Expert, Writing: Expert, Seduction: Expert, Intelligence: Competent, Swimming: Competent, Seafaring: Competent, Deception: Competent, Hunting: Novice.
Personality / Quirks He's an author of dreadful little novels involving romance between seafarers and mer. He definitely seems to have a preoccupation with that trope of star-crossed lovers, separated by two different worlds. He's reputed to have first-hand knowledge of the Akktava tribe, and even is said to be a land-dwelling agent of the tribe, although he does far too much to encourage such rumors for them to hold much credence. Even so, he knows quite a lot about the Mer and their lore.

Competent: Combat: Unarmed, Leadership, Discipline, Combat: Blades
Expert: Intimidation, Strength, Endurance.
Personality / Quirks Standing at 6'5", with a muscle-bound build and a temper to match his size, Iver is one of the more formidable opponents one might face when coming up from the ranks of the Proving Ground. He's taken part in many tournaments of physical skill and combat, and even won runner up in a few of the melees. However, for all his success, he's insecure and tends to take that out on the new people coming to the Proving Ground to train, often targeting lesser skilled opponents in order to show them how much better he is, and to gain satisfaction that way. He's not above using dirty tricks either, whether pocket sand, or other cheap tricks when he's met a match.

Name: Brevdyn Lettering
Race/ Age / Gender: Human / 12 / Male
Location Egilrun
Submitted by: Woe
Role: A street urchin who steals letters in transit for profit. He's rumored to work for the Watcher's Union in Egilrun and perhaps even more shadowy individuals. However, he only works for his own keep in the end. He's a true mercenary pickpocket.
Skills: Athletics: Expert, Largency: Expert, Stealth: Competent, Deception: Competent, Endurance: Competent, Intelligence: Competent ,Detection: Novice

Personality / Quirks He's not at all literate, having skipped out of the school system of Scalvoris in favor of honing his 'craft' and hoarding a personal wealth of personal credit and nels. In just the few years he's been active as a pickpocket, he's improved by leaps and bounds, and most times have been able to filch letters without arousing attention. However, the boy most of all relies on his speed and agility to evade pursuit from those who lose their letters.

At times he's pretended at times to be an assigned courier or crier, carrying sensitive documents for people only to turn them over to those who might want them for nels. Despite his nefarious reputation, he's only a tool of more dangerous individuals, who employ his services in order to blackmail, intimidate, and terrorize his victims.

Skills: Business Management, Woodworking, Logistics (Expert) Strength, Deception, Combat: Polearms, Politics (Competent), Engineering (Novice).

He is greedy and ambitious (well, okay, some things his wife is, too), and deeply resents the control that the Scalvoris Council has imposed on his business operations, especially since their takeover of the Logging Consortium. Saw has the support of interests in Egilrun who strongly believe that the “old ways” were better, and who share his disdain for and resentment of outside interference, such as the recently-increased presence of groups like the Rangers and Elements. Saw is pledged to reverse these developments. He wears a bright red fox-fur hat with the embroidered letters MEGA on it. Make Egilrun Great Again!

  • Acting (Expert)
  • Endurance (Expert)
  • Caregiving (Competent)
  • Athletics (Competent)
  • Larceny (Competent)
  • Detection (Competent)
  • Leadership (Novice)
Appearance: A cursory inspection would give the clear impression of a smartly (if inexpensively) dressed little girl with an endearing smile, blond hair and green eyes. A closer inspection (something she would do her best to avoid being performed) or a dicerning eye, might notice that her cloths were heavily repaired and skin well weathered for someone so young.
Personality / Quirks:
This street rat maintains a thinly painted, but well maintained facade of an accomplished young girl
, talented in Cooking and Caring for those around her. Anyone that does not know otherwise, would be forgiven for assuming that she was on the fast-track to success, given her unusual culinary talent, once her parents have finished paying for what must be a very accomplished education and she moves on to bigger and better things.

The truth could not be further from this. As a child orphaned by the docks collapse in Scalvoris town, she lives hand to mouth these days,
caring for a small group of fellow street rats and vagabonds
. She aspires to do more with her life, but will not elevate herself without taking her friends along with her. Spending every waking hour either leading her little group of thieves, scrounging for food or stealing away time
in a local kitchen's voluntary service in order to practice her passion
(Cooking),
she has lived a life much harder than any normal person should (let alone a child)
.

She has fond memories of her doting parents and is determined to get back to a place of honest graft, but to get there, she needs something to launch her into a place she can do this. Money? Renown? Support of ANY kind is all she needs... and the Scalvoris Chef competition is it. She and her friends have scrapped together everything they can, by thieving, scrounging, begging lying and cheating to get accepted into the competition, Angela is their only hope for salvation and the competition Angelas only hope for a future above the gutters of Almund.

Personality / Quirks: Easton carries himself with the arrogance of someone who was raised with a surplus of nels despite the fact that he is the furthest from that. Growing up as a criminal, Easton used his charisma and charm to convince enough people to follow him that he began his own mercenary company. He is the first to exaggerate their success and more importantly to play down their failures. Easton always presents himself as calm and composed until he is backed into a corner. He can spin a story better than he can wield any weapon and it has helped him succeed in the business world more than the mercenary one.

His office is littered with strange and obscure items and he seems to speak in riddles. He talks normally, but it always seems like he is leading towards something he wants you to bring up first. His hair is cut short on one side only and he often spends longer looking at what you are wearing than at you. He's an odd but incredibly observant man with little to no sense of morality. He will do what he is paid to do. You ask him to uncover infidelity in a partner and he will, even if the evidence he presents is fake.

Personality/Quirks: Lucas Mallory considers himself an 'honorable' killer and he carries himself like a gentleman in most social situations. He is not only a polite man, but a kind one who performs acts of philanthropy across Scalvoris in his free time. He kills because he is good at it and because he does not feel that life is a particularly valuable thing. He enjoys seeing people he cares about happy, and he is willing to do whatever pays best to make sure that they can be. He prides himself on the fact that he had never hurt anyone other than his targets and he has never stolen from someone who would not be able to recover from it. He thinks of his work as the cleanest that it can be in his profession. Lucas employs a wide range of techniques to eliminate his target but almost all of them end up close and personal. He likes his targets to know why they have to meet their end, and that it is not personal.

He is a good leader and an oddly friendly one for a pirate, but friendly is not the same as kind. Jacob does not like taking unnecessary risks and he can not stand when he is not in control of the situation, but the caution involved to stay in control of each situation has kept him ahead of most who tried to stop him.

Role: A bandit poacher of turtles and fairies. A turtle murderer.
Skills: Leadership: Master, Axes and Bludgeons: Expert, Hunting: Expert, Shield: Expert, Leatherworking: Expert, Detection: Competent, Tactics: Competent
Personality / Quirks A roughneck bandit leader that enjoys turtle meat. He wears a lot of leather apparel, armor, and equipment derived from the byproducts of turtle murder, such as shell shields, hats, bones for making tools and weapons, etc. He despises fairies, having run afoul of them lately. He runs a sizeable gang of bandits (flavor npcs) who accompany him on his robberies and turtle hunts.

Jessil Del Gentel; 'Master Duelist'
Name: Jessil Del Gentel
Race/ Age / Gender: Human, 29, Male
Location Travelling
Submitted by Devin
Role: Starring; Master Duelist
Skills: Master Blades, Expert Endurance, Expert Detection, Expert Seduction, Expert Strength, Competent Tactics, Competent Athletics, Competent Cosmetology
Personality / Quirks To call Jessil Del Gentel a charming rogue or any other kind of rogue, for that matter, would be incorrect. He fits the stereotype quite well at first glance, but he doesn’t engage in criminal acts. There’s more to be gained from being a more or less upstanding citizen in his opinion; besides, prison is not a particularly appealing place!

Jessil is an extremely skilled swordsman that would be able to defeat seasoned soldiers effortlessly if he wanted to (He doesn’t want to though as he considers soldiers and similar people to be dreadfully boring and not worth associating with.).

Once a resident of Lysoria, dark-haired and dark-eyed Jessil moved to Scalvoris after the disappearance of the Pirate Lords in order to take advantage of the countless opportunities that he saw there, sell his swords to the highest bidder and impress people with his talent at all kinds of public events. He is someone that definitely craves money and fame.

Far from a typical sellsword, Jessil is quick-witted, ambitious, seductive and fashionable. He wouldn’t be caught dead in plain and boring chainmail or an unadorned suit of leather armor.

Giedre Crystale; 'Courtesan'
Name: Giedre Crystale
Race/ Age / Gender: Biqaj/28/Female
Location Egilrun - Two Queens Shy
Submitted by Woe
Role: Starring- Courtesan with a jealous former client.
Skills: Caregiving: Master, Endurance: Expert, Seduction: Expert, Cosmetology: Expert, Socialization: Expert, Athletics: Competent, Acting: Competent, Combat: Unarmed: Competent.
Personality / Quirks A very friendly courtesan with a warm disposition, as far as courtesans go. While many of the courtesans of the Two Queens are more down to earth and business-like, she's an incorrigible romantic, and genuinely cares for her clients. It's this sunny disposition that has broken the heart of one Client, Indrid Yeoman, as he thought she cared only for him. Despite the danger she reputedly poses for clients, she is one of the more expensive courtesans at the Two-Queens, commanding the highest price of any of them. Only the rich can generally afford her services.

Indrid Yeoman, 'Brothel Creeper'
Name: Indrid Yeoman
Race/ Age / Gender: Human/55/Male
Location Egilrun
Submitted by Woe
Role: Starring- Brothel Creeper with a Crush
Skills: Tactics: Master, Hunting: Expert, Combat: Ranged: Expert, Fieldcraft: Expert, Psychology: Expert, Strength: Competent, Endurance: Competent, Combat: Unarmed: Competent.
Personality / Quirks An old hermit, who spends much of his time in Civilization at one brothel or another. He stopped visiting brothels recently, however, after one of the courtesans (Giedre Crystale) refused to see him, when he displayed a temper to her. He became obsessed, and has since stalked any man who dares to hire her as a courtesan.

He is a master at setting of an ambush, and used to work as a ranger of sorts before settling down to a quiet life in the middle of the Sweetwine. He's an expert marksman, who prefers to use longbows and hunting on foot.

So far, he's evaded capture or discovery, usually by using his strategic wiles and woodcraft to outsmart the Elements and Rangers.

He's also nearly bald, with a receding hairline to the back of his head.

Jaques Black 'Captain of the Destiny'
Name: Jaques Black
Race/ Age / Gender: Human, Male, 28 Arcs old
Location The Hollow Sea / Various Towns

Role: Starring
Skills: Combat: Blades (Master)
Seafaring (Expert)
Leadership (Expert)
Stealth (Expert)
Deception (Expert)
Musical Instrument: String (Competent)
Larceny (Competent)
Singing (Competent)
Personality / Quirks Jaques Black is a light hearted but equally terrifying pirate. He is the type to crack jokes one trill and burry a sword in you the next. He is the captain of the pirate ship known as The Destiny and he has successfully evaded the Element's pursuit for a few arcs- in part because they can't find evidence to link him to crimes he clearly commit and in part because they often can not find him. The strange thing about Jaques is that he proudly boasts that he is the brother of Balthazar Black for some reason. Maybe he really believes it, maybe he is just trying to make people think more of him based on Balthazar's relationship. He is a kind captain to his crew and a momentarily enjoyable pirate to the ships he attacks.

Shrike - 'Mastermind of the Shadowed Hand'
Name: "Shrike"
Race/ Age / Gender: Yludih, Male, 56 Arcs old

Submitted by Balthazar Black
Role: Starring
Skills: Larceny (Master)
Intelligence (Expert)
Deception (Expert)
Logistics (Expert)
Combat: Blades (Expert)
Combat: Unarmed (Competent)
Acting (Competent)
Socialization (Competent)
Personality / Quirks: The Mastermind behind The Shadowed Hand, Shrike's real name has been discarded and all that remains is the alias he has chosen to live his life by. Little is known about him and he remains a mystery to the Elements who patrol Scalvoris, but he has had his hand in a massive number of robberies and calamities over the arcs he has been alive. Whether it was simply pawning off a well thought out plan to another group or assembling his own team to go through with a crime, Shrike has made his living ensuring that the criminals who come to work with and for him do not get caught- and it has been a good living. If there had ever been reports of his physical appearance, they would be just as varied as the crimes he had had a hand in committing due to his unique race. Apart from his recent endeavor to assemble a more lasting unit of criminals (The Shadowed Hand), Shrike has had a tendency only to work with a group or individual a few times before discarding them. He has an even more pressing tendency to pretend he is not actually 'Shrike' and is instead an envoy or agent representing the real mastermind behind the crime. The few who know him can't tell whether he turned to crime for noble reasons or out of a sick desire to become wealthy, but whatever the reason really is, he picked something he is very good at. Shrike does not seem like a fighter and rarely takes a form that looks like they'd be intimidating, but he uses his skills in deception to lull opponents into a false sense of security.

Erika Wilder - 'Eyes of the Shadowed Hand'
Name: Erika Wilder
Race/ Age / Gender: Human, Female, 38 Arcs old
Location Almund / Scalvoris Town
Submitted by Balthazar Black
Role: Starring
Skills: Detection (Master)
Larceny (Expert)
Stealth (Expert)
Appraisal (Expert)
Athletics (Expert)
Etiquette (Competent)
Alchemy (Competent)
Seduction (Competent)
Personality / Quirks: The Eyes of The Shadowed Hand, Erika Wilder is a kind and friendly woman with a rotten heart. She is never one to skip manners or playful banter but she is equally never one to leave you with everything you began with. Referred to as 'The Eyes,' Erika has a special ability to locate and figure out the value of objects worth stealing- even when they are completely concealed. Whether it is slight impressions on clothing or a familiar scent of gold and jewels, Erika always seems to be able to detect when someone had something of value on them. She fell in with The Shadowed Hand a few arcs ago and has done well to earn her place among the group. She is one of the only members who has not been replaced since joining. She is fiercely loyal to her team and any information she give out about them is probably a lie. Erika is not a fighter but she is nimble and clever which, in combination with various devices and smoke screens she has developed, often helps her escape in a chase.

Combat: Ranged (Expert)
Combat: Blades (Competent)
Resistance (Competent)
Intimidation (Competent)
Personality / Quirks: The Toxic Palm of The Shadowed Hand, Herman Mills is a quiet but observant man in the middle of his life. He didn't start out thinking he was a criminal but as the arcs drew on he grew to embrace his newfound purpose. He is a killer and a thief but he will never make a move for less than a small fortune. Events in his life ensured that he does not need the ill-gotten gains in order to live comfortably, but he also denies any satisfaction in the work he does. Even his close allies are unaware of why it is that he does what he does, but he has never given any of them reason to think that he'd turn on them to save himself. Maybe it's a death wish? Maybe he really is just seeking a little thrill? Maybe he is just trying to do something different before the end of his time? Whatever the reason, he is a reliable criminal and the member that The Shadowed Hand turn to when something truly dark needs to happen... or when they have found an unbreakable lock that they need to get past. He refused to be called 'The Toxic Finger of The Shadowed Hand.' Some think it was because he thought it sounded dumb. Herman typically utilizes various forms of poison on his blades and darts in order to incapacitate or kill obstacles in the path of his work.

Role: Starring

Art (Expert)

Research (Competent)
Acting (Competent)
Gambling (Competent)
Personality / Quirks: The Knuckle of The Shadowed Hand, Dray Godwin is a joker and a prankster in every way. He did not learn to be a master criminal through efforts to steal. Instead he learned his remarkable skills picking locks, pockets, and other such things through an effort to do the exact opposite. He was a comedian and a clown in a circus that no longer exists but an important part of his act was planting things in places where no one would believe they should have been. He embarrassed one too many people and his circus kicked him out. Shortly after he was recruited by Shrike to work for The Shadowed Hand and Shrike has mentored him a little more closely than the other two members in order to both keep him under control and to hone his skills at taking things rather than placing them. Dray can rarely resist the urge to make a joke- even when they really aren't funny. People tend to find his humor abrasive and annoying, but as long as he is laughing, he doesn't really care what others think. Dray is a fast and agile fighter but he is more interested in evasion than he is in combat. Generally, if he has gotten into a fight it means that something has already gone terribly wrong.

Re: Antagonist NPCs

For the following antagonyst:

Named in the Credits -> ANGELA HOSKINS, 'MYSTERIOUS TEENAGER'

Originally created for use in tracker event.

Since creation, she has been used in most of the threads listed in the url=viewtopic.php?t=29610]tracker[/url] and is now in the finale with Winston.

As such, I would like to progress her to the 'Starring' category, please. :-)

Here's an updated block for her to replace the old one:
Angela Hoskins, 'Mysterious Teenager'
Name: Angela Hoskins
Race/ Age / Gender: Human / 13 / Female
Location: Scalvoris
Submitted by: Winston
Role: Named in the Credits ~ Originally created for the Cooking Competition
Skills:
  • Cooking (Master)
  • Acting (Expert)
  • Endurance (Expert)
  • Athletics (Expert)
  • Detection (Expert)
  • Caregiving (Competent)
  • Larceny (Competent)
  • Leadership (Competent)
Appearance: A cursory inspection would give the clear impression of a smartly (if inexpensively) dressed little girl with an endearing smile, blond hair and green eyes. A closer inspection (something she would do her best to avoid being performed) or a dicerning eye, might notice that her cloths were heavily repaired and skin well weathered for someone so young.

Personality / Quirks:
This street rat maintains a thinly painted, but well maintained facade of an accomplished young girl
, talented in Cooking and Caring for those around her. Anyone that does not know otherwise, would be forgiven for assuming that she was on the fast-track to success, given her unusual culinary talent, once her parents have finished paying for what must be a very accomplished education and she moves on to bigger and better things.

The truth could not be further from this. As a child orphaned by the docks collapse in Scalvoris town, she lives hand to mouth these days,
caring for a small group of fellow street rats and vagabonds
. She aspires to do more with her life, but will not elevate herself without taking her friends along with her. Spending every waking hour either leading her little group of thieves, scrounging for food or stealing away time
in a local kitchen's voluntary service in order to practice her passion
(Cooking),
she has lived a life much harder than any normal person should (let alone a child)
.

She has fond memories of her doting parents and is determined to get back to a place of honest graft, but to get there, she needs something to launch her into a place she can do this. Money? Renown? Support of ANY kind is all she needs... and the Scalvoris Chef competition is it. She and her friends have scrapped together everything they can, by thieving, scrounging, begging lying and cheating to get accepted into the competition, Angela is their only hope for salvation and the competition Angelas only hope for a future above the gutters of Almund.

Appearance

When standing at his full height, Winston towers a full 1 foot and one blueberry tall. A fact he will happily demonstrate before flicking said blue orb into the air with his nose and then eating it with a snappy grin.

His eyes are dark and sharp, ringed by dark brown fur upon the bright white fur that sets off across the rest of his face.

Equipement

Winston usually carries the following on his person:
  • Cassion's Locket hangs snugly around his neck.
  • Winston's Fairy Bell hangs from his tool-belt attached to his hip. It's 'ringer' is often bound by a small piece of cloth to prevent it giving away his position while in the wilderness.
