Henri's driving purpose is to find her and kill her-- and any responsible for her original murder.

NPC Description: A beautiful woman in the upper-middle class. She married into the Janvier family chasing Gaston's inheritance. Due to the complications of his disappearance, there has been a consistent struggle to claim it. Victoria is unkind, manipulative, and prone to frequent infidelity-- causing a great deal of damage and suspicion to the Janvier reputation-- and to Henri specifically, as he is a man who cannot control his wife. (And one who does not appear to appreciate her enough!) The two remain in a distant, unloving marriage. She often seeks to punish Henri by engaging in frequent affairs.

PC Name: Olivier Larue


NPC Name: Vasiliy Lagounov
Relation to PC: Father
NPC Location: Unknown

NPC Description:
Vasiliy is a full-blooded Vistana from the Corvara Tribe. He would be best described as a middle-aged man with dark features, an olive complexion and a typical Boemian morality. Around 752 B.C. Vasiliy seduced a young lady from Dementlieu's upper class as part of a con. He made off with a share of her family's wealth, leaving the young woman (Olivier's mother) behind with an unwanted pregnancy. The Vistani had packed up and moved on long before anyone realised what had truly transpired, so whether Vasiliy ever learned of his child's existence is unclear. So are his current whereabouts.

Native PCs - Holzknecht Family
« Reply #56 on: February 22, 2015, 03:58:10 PM »
-----The Holzknecht Family-----

Little is known of the Holzknecht family's past, as life in Falkovnia has crushed underfoot much desire to continue the family lines history.  The only ones who may know would be the government of Falkovnia itself, and their census takers.

NPC Name: Gertruda Holzknecht
Relation: Mother
Location: Aerie
Age: Late forties
Description: A woman, who in her prime, could be considered beautiful.  In another life, perhaps she could have achieved great things, but years of toil and hardship have left her a hardened heart.  She speaks nothing of her past, and any who ask would receive a zealous rebuttal.  Any mention of the father of her youngest would receive a similar response. She is blonde, fair skinned, and even in her later years shows clear signs of her past beauty.

NPC Name: Florian Holzknecht
Relation: Father to Walther
Location: Deceased on the northern border, to the undead.  Never returned home.
Age: Deceased
Description: A soldier in the Falkovnian military.  He died early in the two sons lives.  His relations with his wife became bitter with the birth of Dietrich.

NPC Name: Walther Holzknecht
Relation: Brother
Location: (???) Deceased
Age: 30
Description: A stout man, clad often in his chainmail prison guards uniform.  He takes his job quite seriously, and gloats about his torturous activities he and his friends commit on a day to day basis.  He disappeared around the same time Dietrich fled Falkovnia for the outside world.  He loved his brother deeply, despite being a bastard.

PC Name: Dietrich Holzknecht
Relation: Bastard Son
Location: Dementlieu, prior Silbervas
Age: 28
Description: A man who clearly sports none of the features of his brothers father.  Handsome, in a hardened way.  An early life of trouble making earned him the scars of the scourge upon his back.  He holds an extreme hatred for the Falkovnian government, and everyone who supports it.  He hated his half brother for his evil ways.

-----The MacGillivray Family-----

NPC Name: Brigit MacGillivray
Relation: Mother
Description: Siobhan's loving mother, it was Brigit whom convinced her husband to convert to Ezra. While she is not much of a wood-worker, her own mercantile cunning has helped the business stay afloat; particularly when Nial's pride got the better of him.

NPC Name: Áine MacGillivray
Relation: Sister
Description: Aine is Siobhan's sister. The two were always close friends. She helps out her the rest of the family with the family bussiness.

NPC Name: Fearghus MacGillivray
Relation: brother

PC Name: Christine Harlow

NPC Name: Charles Harlow
Relation to PC: Father
NPC Location: Paridon
NPC Description: A solicitor in his early seventies, he is a charming, albeit critical, man. While he cares deeply for his daughter, he seemingly cares more for his wealth, reputation, and influence in Paridon. After the birth of his son, he began an affair with his children’s governess. After Christine left, he disinherited her.

NPC Name: Holly Grant-Harlow
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Paridon
NPC Description: Currently in her late forties, she is dour, and pragmatic to a fault. Holly married Charles Harlow at the young age of twenty, and quickly gave him Christine. After the sudden death of her parents, she took over their business, proving herself to be a shrewd and ruthless businesswoman. Ten years after the birth of Christine, Holly had Warren. She discovered Charles and Hattie’s affair only a few months after Warren’s birth, but chose to ignore it. Her company frequently does business with merchants in Port-a-Lucine and Martira Bay.

NPC Name: Warren Harlow
Relation to PC: Brother
NPC Location: Paridon
NPC Description: Christine’s brother is seventeen, and a large, simple caliban. He was often ignored by his parents, and treated with disgust by Hattie. Christine removed him from the Harlow house, and hid him with other caliban in the city.

NPC Name: Hattie Atwater
Relation to PC: Former governess
NPC Location: Paridon
NPC Description: Hattie’s currently thirty-eight and a beautiful woman. She is well-versed in various languages and literature, arithmetic, and art. Hattie was always disinterested in the children, and cruel to Warren. She is always with the Harlow family, and has a fondness for publicly alluding to the affair.

NPC Name: Jonathan Burke
Relation to PC: Former fiance
NPC Location: [?]
NPC Description: Burke is nobility in Paridon, and was pushed upon Christine by her parents in an attempt to further their influence and power. He usually displays a charming demeanor, but is a volatile man and can quickly turn incredibly violent and cruel. The sole reason he agreed to marry Christine was for her family’s money, as he has outrageous debts. He may have ended up fleeing his creditors, and likely holds a grudge against Christine; she fled without a word, mere days before the wedding. He has weaknesses for whores, liquor, and opium.

PC Name: Blaise Scintillement deFleur

NPC Name: Elias deFleur
Relation to PC: Elder Brother (Deceased - Port-a-Lucine Revolution)
NPC Location: Port a Lucine, Dementlieu
Describe NPC: Elias is much more capable of the two deFleur sons, excelling in physical prowess and military intelligence. Elias was always protective and supportive of Blaise's sensitivity and artistic inclination, but wished that Blaise would step up into a more masculine and assertive role in society, and abandon his gifts for magic all together. He passed away in the recent civil unrest, his body identified some two weeks after his death. Cause: Gunshot. This serves as Blaise's greatest loss in his lifetime.

NPC Name: Paulette deFleur
Relation to PC: Mother - Missing
NPC Location: Chateaufaux, Dementlieu
Describe NPC: A ballet teacher, and hobbyest dress maker.

NPC Name: Franc deFleur
Relation to PC: Father - Missing
NPC Location: Chateaufaux, Dementlieu
Describe NPC: master of the minor gentry household deFleur, Franc is a hard and bitter man with apathy for his youngest son, who he finds is a disappointment. 

Family Status and current situations: After the death of Elias deFleur, Franc had the foresight to evacuate his modest estate of his wife and closest retainers. The home was ransacked shortly after the death of the Emperor Foquelaine's death, and all their riches and finery seized and hawked and looted by all walks of life. It is said that the deFleurs took nothing but the necessities to travel, and they did not attempt to reach out to their youngest son to tell them where they were going. It is presumed they are still alive, however, Blaise has noticed his mother has ceased monthly deposits into his account without notification. The deFleurs are not without cousins, aunts, relatives from other houses and origins, however, these family members remain perfectly content to their reclusive nature.

~~~House Rozycki~~~


Motto: Sound the Charge
Lord: House Vistins
Rivals: House Ciesinski

House Rozycki are a vassal house to the Vistins, One of the five great Families in Nova Vaasa. They are often mocked as “jumped-up merchants” and similar insults for their power and influence comes not from an ancient house but from being a business of horse breeders for the Vistins Family. They have an infamous, heated and ugly rivalry with the Ciesinski House, another family of horse breeders. The two families loathe each other immensely. It hasn't helped that they have repeatedly tried to kill each other, tried to ruin each other's name, tried to harm each other's horses, tried to destroy each other's bussiness. On one or two occasions affairs have occurred between the two families. The fact they haven't gone to open war is due to the fact that neither family is committed to war, and war would bring the Prince's wrath upon them, something they do not want. They are also both sworn to the Vistins, which also keeps them in line.

The family lands are near the city of Bergovitsa where they often sell some of the horses they don't provide for the Vistins. Krzysztof was born the third son of the Rozycki family.


NPC Name: Mikaal Rozycki
Relation to PC: Father and head of the Household
Location:Bergovitsa
Description: The patriarch of the household. Mikaal is a stern man, a man who is said to rarely smile. He is a ruthless politician. He knows very well his status, but he has a keen eye for and is on the look out to for opportunities that can gain prestige, money, and glory for himself and his families. He does love his wife and children though he rarely shows it. He rules with an iron hand over his family and house. Though on occasion he has shown his kind side towards those closest to him.


NPC Name: Kataryna Rozycki née Fredskild
Relation to PC: Mother
Location:Bergovitsa
Description: The mother of the Rozycki children married into the family not for love but for politics. She has grown in time to love her husband and especially her children. She would do anything for them. That said she married also to have some of the wealth of the family. She enjoys the finer things in life. She is quite greedy, yet in spite or perhaps because of that, she focuses on making sure that the family's business side is successful and profitable.

NPC Name: Krzesimir
Relation to PC: Eldest Brother
Location: Bergovitsa
Description: Krzesimir: The heir of the family and he knows it. He has been raised from birth as the little lordling whom will be the head of the family. He has never shied away from letting any of his siblings know this status. Of all the family members, he is the most martial. He is a skilled musketeer, easily using both sword or Muskeet upon horse back.  Despite this as both Krysztof and Krzesimir knew their places in the family, they came to a mutual understanding of each other. Krysztof has long known that he would never inherit but he has applied his own skills for the benefit. Which has made the two allies. His recent marriage to his long time friend Józefina helps solidify his place as the lord of the family, and the birth of his son, Stefan, has given him an heir and further solidify his hold as heir of the Family

NPC Name: Józefina Rozlyki nee Olszewska
Relation to PC: Sister-in-law
Location:Bergovitsa
Description: Krzesimir's wife. The eldest daughter of the Olszewska family, another minor family that married Józefina off for a political alliance. Józefina and Krezsimir do seem to care for each other. There are rumors that they had a long affair before their marriage and that this was to provide the families something to benefit from two love-birds; which has some merit as they have been long time friends. Others whisper that she was already pregnant and the marriage was to prevent a scandal. She presents herself as a kind and proper noble-woman, and while some of that is not a mask; she is much more power-hungry and ambitious then she is kind. A few months after the marriage, she gave birth to a son, Stefan.

NPC Name: Stefan
Relation to PC: Nephew
Location:Bergovitsa
Description: Stefan is a young boy of four years of age. He is the son of Józefina and Krzesimir. 

NPC Name: Szymon
Relation to PC: older brother/ lawgiver priest
Location: Bergovitsa
Description: Szymon is the second brother. A stern and zealous man, it is of no surprise then that he entered the Lawgiver's clergy. Since entering the clergy he has risen to the rank of Dommer and is preparing to become a biskop. Despite his zeal, he does use his position to help the family and most importantly himself. Of all the members of House Rozycki though, Szymon is the one least interested in the Ciesinski-Rozycki feud. The fact that he did have an affair with a young lady of the Ciesinski is one of the reasons; after the affair was broken up he became the stern man that he is today. Szymon and Krzyzstof do not get along much. Krzyzstof while religious, is no where near the pious man that Szymon is and his brother constantly chastises him about that when they visit.

NPC Name: Jadwiga Rozycki

Relation to PC:Father
Location:Village of Barovia
Description:A descendant from a outlander halfling coupling with a local halfling, this man holds a blend of features from both bloodlines. Rich dark hair sits atop his head, while light pale flesh covers the rest of him. His dark brown eyes show his age, along with the many wrinkles he has accumulated around his tired eyes. While not remarkable in any way, the stout man has prided him self as being a upstanding figure of his village. Never getting into trouble and always being as humble as possible. Though he can often be found at the inn for quite a few hours on any given night drinking his past away, having lost his side of the family in a rather tragic fire of unknown origins. Very little was left by the fire, bodies to badly burned to have any idea what may of occurred. Much of the property gone, left with nothing in his youth Beau was forced to seek out work else where.

Crina is a simple women of simple means, though should someone look beyond the mundane life they would begin to find eerie unexplained mysteries around the woman's family line. No one is quite sure when the Savu's arrived, only that one day a man seemed to arrive with coin to purchase the rights to a small farm. Though such was so long ago no one can say for sure. But the Savu's seemed to keep to them selves. Nothing seeming to stand out, other then they gave off a odd feeling and rarely engaged with the rest of the village. Over time the family became increasingly more public as the members of the family got older. The family began to see its members married off, and moving on else where. For some time the family would of been like any other, seeming entirely normal. Over time, those who had left seemed to return with child. Though oddly alone, without their husband or wife. As the family begins to gather once more, a horrible mysterious fire broke out one night. Killing every family member, except one. A lone pregnant women who was found badly burned the next day. Over time the women had her child, and managed to rebuild a rather tiny cottage on her perished families land, raising the small girl alone. Using what little wealth that was left behind to mend the lands and up keep them. Hiring aid when needed. Eventually, Antanasia Savu perished. It is claimed she did so in her sleep after a life of suffering from her injuries. Leaving the land and remaining small wealth and crops to her sole living family, Crina Savu. A women of bronze skin and dark hair, with eyes of a bottomless blackness.

NPC Name:Mihai Darlings
Relation to PC:Oldest Sibling (Brother)
Location:Village of Barovia
Description:A embodiment of his mother, this strapping young man has grown to be a ideal specimen of a halfling young man. While his looks seem taken from his mother he does not seem to share his mothers or fathers simple humble nature. The young man seems caught in perpetual anger. Often found releasing his ever present rage in the fields or around the farm. A habit that has given him a form that any would desire to possess. Rarely seen away from the farm the young man seems of few words, and less sociable then a feral wolf. Despite the ever present look of rage in his eyes he seems fiercely protective of his family and their farm. Some rumor of him taking down a worg with just his hands, leaving the creature behind with its lower jaw broken and its head twisted to a unnatural angle.

NPC Name:Lucian Darlings
Relation to PC:Middle Sibling (Brother)
Location:Village of Barovia
Description:Lucian seems to favor his father in both appearance and personality. The two never seem far apart, always easy going and relatively happy. Lucian seems far more lanky and rather clumsy in comparison to his strapping brother and well built father. Lucian seems far more interested in the halfling women of his village, very often making a fool of him self in his pursuit of love. His relatively good looks seem to make him easy enough on the eyes, but his youthful awkwardness has made him fit in well with the village. Most seeming to get along and enjoy the young man as well as can be expected.

NPC Name:Draguta Hagi [Deceased]
Relation to PC:Grandmother of Sorts (live in help)
Location:Village of Barovia
Description:A hagered elderly destitute barovian women. While this halfling women may of once been pretty, it is hard to tell. The years have been rather unkind to her, stealing her sight almost completely and leaving her partially crippled. This women is lucky to of lived as long as she had, or perhaps owes such to those who were kind enough to take her in and keep her well fed and safe from the night. With little to offer, she made her way caring for the children of the house. While her body may of failed her, her mind was stronger then ever, spinning tales of such wonder and interest that the children never seem bored for very long. The age in her voice seemed almost hypnotic when she spun tales, drawing in even the children parents at times as they all sat close to the homes hearth.  The source of her tales seeming to stem from a life lived in wonder. Confessing she was once a great adventurer. The source of her many physical ailments. The elderly women seemed to share all her knowledge with the children. Schooling them in a sense, a prospect both parents seemed most fond of. Even in the early ages of each child, each showed a aptitude for knowledge. Learning speak clearly and coherently while other children struggled to grasp at words. Learning the usefulness of the local fauna, as well as maps and how to tell direction. Even how to properly skin a kill and tend the hide so it could be sold for coin.


Points of Interest:
* Despite the families apparent humble kindness, all three siblings would seem very estranged and cold with one another. Even while growing up together.
* The Savu fire occurred exactly two decades before the Darlings fire. Both only having a sole survivor.
* Shortly after the birth of their third child, the Darlings took on a boarder. A odd elderly women dressed in black rags who had no where else to go. Seeming to pay her way with watching the children while their mother and father worked the land. The elderly women seeming to die in a mysterious fall one night many years later, only for it to be ruled a accident, That given her age she missed a step and fell down the stairs which killed her.
* The only daughter and youngest child of the family vanished one eve. Leaving only a short note behind that she was going to travel abroad.


The above can be all considered ic knowledge for those who it may actually apply to. Such as other locals from the village or someone who might of been there from that time. If a player is interested in the backstory and wanting to play one of the family members, feel free to pm to discuss such. If any dm has questions, or wants to know more exact ooc details feel free to message me.

PC Name: Niklaus Von Burkhart

NPC Name: Johanna Von Burkhart (born: Gisler)
Relation to PC: Wife
NPC Location: Deceased (alleged) - unknown

Describe the NPC: To hear Niklaus describe Johanna is to get the image of an angel, and the biased opinion of her widower is not too far off.  Johanna was a beautiful woman, with hair of gold and eyes like the clearest skies. As a lower class citizen it was a surprise to everyone when Niklaus took her hand in marriage. Some who remember her say she spoke with a voice of honey, and her singing was second to none.  She is believed to have died in the inferno that engulfed the Von Burkhart home, consuming her body. Her death was a shock to the community.

NPC Name: Conrad Von Burkhart
Relation to PC: Son
NPC Location: Deceased - Buried on the Von Burkhart family plot on the coast of Lamordia

Describe the NPC: Conrad passed at the age of twelve. In life he was rambunctious and every bit as curious about the world as his father is.  They say Conrad has his father's nose and jaw, but his mother's eyes.  At the age of ten young Conrad came down with an unknown illness which began to eat away at the lining of his muscles. At the age of eleven the disease accellerated and began to deteriorate the boy's bones. Every day of life was agony.  Many think it was his son's suffering that drove Niklaus into seclusion.  The boy's charred, mutilated body was found after the flames in the Von Burkhart home had finally been snuffed out. His remains were found in the charred out husk of a laboratory in the basement of the home.

NPC Name: Berthold Von Burkhart
Relation to PC: Father
NPC Location: Bedridden in Ludendorf, Lamordia

Describe the NPC: Berthold is a proud man. In his youth he was a brilliant mind, but old age has dulled his wits substantially. While his memory begins to fail him, he is attended to by his second son. The loss of Johanna and Conrad broke the old man's heart, and despite his withering health, he still visits Conrad's grave every week. There, it is said, he weeps and begs Conrad to forgive Niklaus.

NPC Name: Berthold Von Burkhart II
Relation to PC: Brother (Younger)
NPC Location: Ludendorf, Lamordia

Describe the NPC: Berthold junior is the spitting image of his father.  He is tall, well built, and devilishly handsome.  Where his brother was gifted with intelligence, Berthold was gifted with a quick wit and a silver tongue.  Combining his family's penchant for the medical with his own mercantile skills, Berthold has build himself a nice life selling remedies and herbal concoctions.  Some whisper that he is nothing more than a snake oil salesman, but yet others swear his curatives have saved lives.

House Sallembier
House Sallembier


"Connaissance, Éloquence, et Piété"
" Knowledge, Eloquence, and Piety"

House Sallembier are minor nobles within Dementlieu. Before the revolution of 770, the family held the title of Baron with many of the men being holding the title of Chevalier as well. The family was known and still is known for two things: their piety and Support of the Church of Ezra, and their support of learning. They were patronizers of both. Supporting both chapels to Ezra and Libraries of various subjects. They remain strong supporters of education and of the faith to this day; including the university of Dementlieu. 

When the revolution of 770 happened they supported the council of Brilliance over Foquelaine or the revolutionaries. While they remained quiet during the Foquelaine reign, they did what they could to protect others from his goons quietly. Those who might have been targets they kept safe. The house survived that chaos to meet the fires of the revolution.

As they were nobles, the revolutionaries targeted them. Like all nobles, the house was stripped of its lands and titles. The revolution during their bloodier moments brought up some of their members for execution. Any support they may have had for things to get better died with the mass executions, especially when Antoinette was executed. Antoinette, the younger sister of Clarisse, even though she did try to help others and was a kind woman, the revolutionaries executed her nonetheless.

When Falkovinia invaded the family offered to fight against the invading hawks. Claude being the formost of the members to volunteer to fight. In addition to fighting, they made the decision to back Helene DuSuius and Dominic as they restored power. This not only brought the restoration of their lands and titles but the title of Viscount was given to Gaspard, elevating the family as a whole. This along with the near the end of of the twins, Jeanne and Alphonse, education at the university and the recent birth of Renard, son of Claude and Sophie, make the house look forward to what the future holds.


NPC Name:  Gaspard Sallembier
Relation to PC: Father and head of the Household
Location:Port-a-Lucine
Description: Gaspard is the reigning head of House Sallembier. He is a stern man, a stubborn man, yet also a kind and loving father. He helped to nuture Yvette's love for firearms and all things related to gunpowder based weaponry often taking her with her when he practice shooting at their estate or when they went hunting. He is not a conservative man, and indeed opposed Foquelaine like the rest of the family, but he turned quickly against the revolution due to the murder of his wife's sister. While he did marry Clarisse for politics, and when they were married there was no love there, that is very much not the case today as he loves his wife and children.

NPC Name: Bernard Sallembier
Relation to PC: Uncle and anchorite of Ezra
Location:Port-a-lucine
Description: One of the few members of the family to take up the cloth. He is a kindly man and humble man who tends to his duties to Ezra. Though he spends much of his time working for the Church, he does come and visit his family every now and then. He often helps with church charity projects that encourage literacy and reading.

NPC Name: Antoinette Martineau
Relation to PC: Aunt
Location: Dead
Description: The younger sister of Clarisse. A cheerful and joyful woman who was almost always smiling. She was a ballet dancer, someone young who was up and coming. Then the revolution happened. Because she was a noble, and because she did not agree with everything that they said. This brought her to meet the guillotine and thus she died. Her death is what catalyzed the family against the revolution.

NPC Name:  Clarisse Sallembier née Martineau
Relation to PC: Mother
Location:Port-a-Lucine
Description: A scholarly woman, kind and nurturing. She was the one to help nuture her children's talents in terms of learning. Yvette has fond memories of her reading to her as a little girl. Clarisse was the one to help allow Nurture Yvette's potential to the arcane, encouraging her to study the Arcane Sciences at the University. While she did marry Gaspard for politics, and when they were married there was no love there, that is very much not the case today. She loves her husband and her children.

NPC Name:  Claude Sallembier
Relation to PC: Older brother
Location:Port-a-Lucine
Description:  The career soldier. Claude is a gentlemen and a scholar, as well as the heir to House Sallembier. A career soldier, who became an officer. Like most of the family he was and is a liberal noble, and disagreed both with Foqueliane, as well as the revolution. He put aside his dislike of the revolution and made sure he was willing to fight for dementlieu, the moment Falkovinia Invaded.

When the war ended, he married his love Sophie Doulcet, now Sophie Sallembier. Since then he has one son with her, Renard.

NPC Name: Sophie Sallembier née Doulcet:
Relation to PC: Sister in law
Location: Port-a-Lucine
Description
Sophie comes from a minor noble house that was of equal standing before the whole Revolution began. She was the only daughter of the Doulcet family. During the revolution she stayed quite though she hated the revolution for all the guilutining that they did. She is a trained nurse with a degree in medicine from the university and with the war with Falkovinia, she volunteered to aid as a Nurse and help in any way she can.

since the revolution and war ended, she married her love, Claude Sallembier. She has since had one son with him, Renard Sallembier.

NPC Name: Alphonse Sallembier
Relation to PC: Younger brother – twin of  Jeanne
Location:Port-a-Lucine
Description: The playboy; Yvette's younger brother and twin to Jeanne, is a young man who rather play then study. That does not mean he does not study, but compared to either of his sisters, he is far less studious. He is a lady's man and often flirts with them and seems to bring home a different girl every other week or so.

He is quite the fencer and skilled swordsmen. He has recently entered the gendarme after he graduated from the university to follow his older brother's footsteps. He does take his job somewhat serious. That said he is a playboy and very much believes in the idea of work hard and play hard.

NPC Name:  Jeanne Sallembier
Relation to PC: Younger sister twin of Alphonse
Location:Port-a-Lucine
Description: Artist and lawyer. Jeanne is the younger sister of Yvette and twin of Alphonse. She is very much a liberal noble, doing what she can from her position of status to help the republic and her people. That said, she is also very much a young noblewoman, and does enjoy spending time with other nobles.

During the revolution, she first embraced it, being somewhat of an idealist and thought it would bring about a better society for dementlieu. The killings in front of the Palais got rid of the idea that the Revolutionaries were good in her mind, especially when her aunt was among the dead.

Since the Revolution she has finished her studies at the Universite de Dementlieu to become a practicing lawyer. She takes her work very seriously.  She is very much a meticulous woman when it comes to her work. She is a highly detailed woman, preferring to study all the details of a case. She is rather dedicated to her profession as a lawyer. When not practicing her legal work, she often spends her time painting.

~~ House Voclain ~~


Motto: "Nul n'est si sage", trans. "None Are So Wise"

House Voclain are a relatively new house, having bought their way into the gentry with the large sums of money earned by trading in spices such as cloves, nutmeg, and garlic. Too unimportant to have been made a target of either revolutionaries or more influential noble families, the members of House Voclain managed to avoid meeting an ignoble end in the uprising of 770 BC. They emerged from that ordeal more or less unscathed, somehow. Instead, the family found itself dealing with a different kind of calamity altogether, one having to deal with a reversal of fortunes in the realm of finance and commerce. Will things change, with Anselme as the family's new patriarch? Only time shall tell.



NPC Name:  Ernest Voclain
Relation to PC: Father, and former head of the household
Location: Six feet under
Description: A spice merchant of some renown, Ernest would be cited as the man who put the Voclains on the map, having made a considerable amount of wealth via the spice trade, enough to buy himself and his family a place among the gentry. Unfortunately, Ernest became afflicted with dementia as he grew more advanced in age yet retained his leadership of the household, leading to a host of poor investments on his part. These poor investments would cause Ernest to borrow massive amounts of coin from his relatives, who would later harangue him constantly over paying them back. Although his son Anselme mortgaged their property and managed to pay off the debts his father owed, it is hard to say as to whether or not the family shall recover from such heavy financial losses.

NPC Name: Hortense Voclain
Relation to PC: Aunt
Location: Chateaunoir
Description: One of the many creditors Ernest borrowed from, Anselme regards this woman as being a 'shrill harpy', with 'all the likeness of the mythical medusae haunting the island of Demise'. Needless to say that although the debts she was owed have been paid, the two of them do not get along very well.

NPC Name:  Marceline Voclain
Relation to PC: Mother
Location: Dominia
Description: Marceline was involuntarily committed by Ernest shortly after having Anselme, and for this reason Anselme knows little to nothing about her, who she was, or why she was committed. She spent some time in Chateaufaux's asylum, but was eventually transferred to Dr. Heinfroth's asylum on the island of Dominia, because it was believed the world-renowned physician could help her better than Dr. Wilhelm Mikki ever could. How a meeting with his mother would go is anyone's guess.

PC Name: Ecaterina Lacusta

NPC Name: Sorin Lacusta (Aged 50)
Relation to PC: Father
NPC Location: Krofburg, Barovia.
Description: A hardy man, Sorin is the head of the Lacusta family and their goat produce business. Sorin started the business and set up trade with Vallaki. Under his guidance, it has grown. They trade their milk, cheese and meat across Barovia, and even as far as Nova Vaasa.

NPC Name: Florica Lacusta (Aged 44)
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Krofburg, Barovia.
Description: This wise and worldly woman married Sorin at a young age, as is Barovian custom, but worked to match her husband's drive for business. Her own father served in the Krofburg Militia, and taught her how to use a shortsword, which is a skill she passed on to Ecaterina.

NPC Name: Gregor, Pavel and Anghel Lacusta (Aged 25)
Relation to PC: Brothers (triplets)
NPC Location: Krofburg, Barovia.
Description: Ecaterina's brothers are just over five years older than her, so she grew up used to roughhousing and boyish games. Gregor is the cleverest of the three brothers, and handles the administration of their business (a position he took over from Ecaterina when she left for the garda). Pavel and Anghel provide the brawn and manpower, wrangling the goats and preparing the bulk of their produce. All three of them can be given to teasing their younger sister, but it is done out of love.

Seeing that this thread hasn't been posted into in a while, but seeing how its still open, I shall post anyway!

PC Name: Liliana Iliescu

NPC Name: Stanislaw Iliescu
Relation to PC: Father
NPC Location: Vallaki Slums

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words):
A dockworker of 45 years with hair long gone grey, Stanislaw is a rather average barovian man. While he does not necessarily drink his entire income away, he certainly is on a downward spiral towards alcoholism and with this his violent streak increases. He disapproves of Liliana joining the cult of the Morninglord but has, not for the least part since the young woman has developed some strength of herself, stopped attempting to "beat sense" into her. Their relationship is tense and the long term development unclear.

NPC Name: Maria Iliescu
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Vallaki Slums

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words):
Liliana's mother is a quiet woman, from whom Liliana inherited her dark red hair. In her younger years she tried to sooth her husbands anger, with the years however she has increasingly become apathetic towards it. She sees Liliana's membership in the church of a foolish waste of time and would rather have her married off.

NPC Name: Marius Iliescu
Relation to PC: Oldest brother
NPC Location: Vallaki Slums

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words):
A man of 23 years, Marius joined his father as a dockworker and is slowly starting to resemble him in other aspects as well. While he does not view Liliana's choices quite as harshly as her parents, he has little understanding for them

NPC Name: Traian Iliescu
Relation to PC: Older brother
NPC Location: Slums of Vallaki

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words):
Traian is a 19 year old in the last year of his apprenticeship. He is kinder then his brother and father, having taken more after his mother in her earlier years. While he thinks that Liliana joining the cult was naive, he does not view it with the same harshness and is generally unbothered, provided his sister is alright.


NPC Name: Elena Iliescu
Relation to PC: Younger sister
NPC Location: Vallaki Slums

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words):
Elena is a girl of 14 and like Liliana herself and Traian of a more cheerful persuasion. She is the only family member who truely believes the cult is the right place for her sister to be.
