Dungeon: Tale of the Seekers

Post by Snœflæk on Tue Apr 19, 2016 3:38 pm

Players:

Spork:

Name:  Elena ???

Age: 36

Seeker: Ecclesiast

Appearance: Short dark brown hair, light green eyes. Old bandages cover their right eye.

History: A young woman of the cloth who has been left constantly questioning their faith. Once a trusted clergyman, now they're left in constant shock after committing the involuntary manslaughter of a fellow member of the church. They've left behind who they once were, as they still struggle with their own faith and the truth.

Now they seek absolution in this Ancient Holy Place.

Fountain:

Name: Tet-batar Amennakhti

Age: Early thirties.

Seeker: The Eldritch

Appearance: Tet has light-brown skintone. He has scraggly, black, and straw-like hair, and wears a stubble all across his face. When wearing his hood, only his deep-set eyes can be seen which glow like bright and brilliant shining steel. Clickity click.

History: Tet-batar is related to the royal family of a faraway land; though, his exact position within the family is unknown. Sometime in his adolescence and after spending much of his childhood in the royal libraries, curiosity took hold of Tet and compelled him to take up a small host of friends-at-arms to seek out a hidden ruin called the Temple of the Forbiddens. Most of his host, which included some of the most skilled men and women of the land and even some of Tet's own family, perished in the most unspeakable of ways during this search, and after five long years, they arrived at the temple.

Despite Tet's pleas and arguments, no one would dare enter the ruins after what they had been through. So, Tet entered alone. Perhaps it was out of guilt and whatever remained of their loyalty that they waited for so long, but when Tet finally exited the ruins, an entire month had passed. His regal clothing had been torn to shreds. He was bruised and cut all over. Gripping madly onto an old amulet and speaking in riddles of gods across the stars and horrors that hid in the air, Tet was taken back in by his loyal group. They made haste away from the ruins, wanting to get home as quickly as possible, but when they set up their first camp on the journey back, Tet dissappeared with the night.

Now, the crazed foreigner finds himself here. His curiosity and ambition urging him onwards to new power and knowledge.

Weengalore

Name: Josephine A. Foy

Age: 26

Seeker: The Thrall

Appearance: She has dark brown eyes, followed by braided shoulder-length black hair.

History: During the ball in which Josephine was formally introduced into society, she was greeted rudely by a familiar face.  It was the eldest daughter of her rival family, aristocracy-wise. After accidentally shoving her into a puddle near the gate, the eldest daughter cast a curse upon the young girl. She experienced immense nausea, and went unconscious quickly. The day passed, and the nausea faded away, but a heavy feeling of being held down, chained even, had replaced it. The thirst of venturing. The feeling gave her a thirst for Seeking. She assumed, in order to quench this thirst and hopefully rid herself of her curse, she needed to seek.

Fishy Yakov

Name: Sion, No.4

Age: ??

Seeker: The Automaton

Appearance: A sheath of thick armor wraps the "man's" form, with segments of his shell imitating the visage of things such as a face and hair. The would be-human has wrapped himself in the hides of slayed monsters in a disturbing attempt to clothe himself. Has the number four grafted into several segments of its armor, leading many to call it by its numerical designation. [CLICK HERE]

History: Automaton No. 4, a product of the dungeon itself. Details of it's past, from how long it's been alive to how much it knows about the dungeon, are impossible to ascertain from its monosyllabic responses to inquiry. Regardless, the being that calls itself Sion fights the creatures of the dungeon and helps those who venture its depths without question.

No. 4 doubtlessly believes that by testing the Dungeon, it may achieve the humanity it relentlessly pursues.

Seccom Masada

Name: Mauno Järvinen

Age: Late Twenties.

Seeker: The Ashen

Appearance: A rather small man covered in thick, tattered and burnt robes. His only bit of attire untouched by the flame is a pristine porcelain mask that he had stolen from his teacher, among other things. In fact, almost all of him is covered in robe, so his appearance is difficult to make out. What little can be seen of him shows that his hair is ashy black and his eyes are a bright blue. Click 'Ere

History: The son of an impoverished noble sent far away because his gift was viewed with fear disdain.
Swayed by lofty ambitions, Mauno studied all he could of the arts of pyromancy... to the point of madness.
Eventually he snapped and burned down the academy he was "imprisoned" in, using the corpses of his master and fellow apprentices as kindling.
Of course, he will never forgive his family for casting him out. So he'll show them the beauty of his gift's new radiance, whether they want it or not.

For now he only seeks ways with which to grow his gift, The Dungeon seeming to provide the perfect opportunity.
...Or you would know this, if the man spoke more than an occasional few words.

Name: Sir Harkanus Marco Delruze Quincy III, AKA Sir Marco, or Sir Delruze, or more simply just Harkan.

Other Titles: Son of the Silverblood, Harbinger of Enchrion, The Valiant Shell, Bearer of the Black Cross.

Age: 37

Seeker: The Arbiter

Appearance: CLICK

History: Bastard son of the King of Arkanne, crusader of the Enchrion Faith, Harkan was bestowed his knighthood at the age of 18 after the Seige of the Wickerlands. During the decisive battle, Harkan assumed command of an entire regiment of cavalrymen after the death of their most experienced general, split the troop into four units in order to flank the enemy from all fronts, forcing the enemy deeper into the woodlands where Harkan would set fire to the entire forest unconcerned about the gypsy village nestled deep within it. It was only after the last blaze had burned out, that Harkan realized what he had done as he stared at the bodies of innocent women and children caught amongst the tragedy of war. Praying to Enchrion for forgiveness and guidance, Harkan continued serving his king at the cost of having to commit even fouler atrocities in the coming decades.

Unwavering in his beliefs, Harkan has come to the conclusion that law and order must be upheld at any cost, even if that cost is his mind, body, and soul.

After the death of his father, Harkan became disillusioned with the new direction his nation. Once again asking Enchrion for guidance, his dreams were cast with images of the great, mysterious dungeon that lies beyond his homeland. Realizing he must embark on this holy quest in order to truly discover the man he is, the Arbiter departed from Arkanne bidding his home a final farewell.
