Title: Native PCs - Family NPCs
Post by: Nox on March 25, 2013, 11:18:47 AM
Attention Mistdwellers!  This space is reserved for Native PCs to list significant characters from their background and can/will be used by DMs in an attempt to enrich the setting.  Native PCs offer a unique opportunity in that they are from the areas we play in and unlike Outlanders, who have been ripped from their homes and families, Natives have a lingering background that can be used to enhance our storytelling.  If this were PnP this would be a resource we could draw on, so as an experiment we're going to try and compile a list of potential NPCs we can use to populate our adventures who have some ties to current native PCs.  If you play a Native PC and want to list some significant characters from your characters background, this is the place.  Who knows, you might see them in game or have a plot revolve around them.

Anyways, there will be some ground rules here, we don't want to bog this down:


By submitting an NPC, you are agreeing to and understanding that:


If you understand and agree to all of the above, please C&P the following for every viable NPC you want to include.

PC Name: Gavril Arcos

NPC Name: Petru and Daciana Arcos, Carina Vulpescu
Relation to PC: Parent's
NPC Location : Krofburg

Describe the NPC :

Petru - was formerly a garda of Vallaki until he moved his family to the village of krofburg after the death of his youngest child Luminita who was trampled by a horse. A Stern man with a rigid sense of honor who excels at the use of the Halberd due to it being something of a family tradition for fathers to train the men of the Arcos line with the weapon. He now works as a grizzled old warrior alongside his peers as a Krofburg garda. He and his Son have something of a strained relationship for a number of reasons, most recently having arranged a marriage for Gavril which ended badly.

Daciana
Is a Rope maker that has a somewhat protective nature over the men of her family, often placing herself between them when the two would quarrel. It's said she is known to make all manner of meals with the ample supply of goat meat and goat milk that saturates the small village even trying out extremely unorthodox recipes. Whether this is out of creativity or boredom is left up to interpretation however. Her Rope's are said to be well made and fulfill a basic need that the small village has.

Carina - Carina was formerly Gavril's wife of seven years having been roped into a marriage with the large man that was arranged by their fathers. She was an unfaithful wife who in the end ran away with a rich vineyard owners son causing something of a scandal in the small village.

Relation to PC: The man who called himself 'father' to a handful of girls under his employment. Scarlet's previous boss.

Describe the NPC: An overweight and greedy man in his mid fifties, Emilian owns a tiny and run down 'club' in the slums of Vallaki. While he says 'club', what goes on behind closed doors is all but public knowledge. The girls were abused and treated poorly, to the point where it was more of an ownership than a proper job. Too afraid to try and leave, they accept their existance and go on with life as usual. Scarlet however did not, and after making her escape changed her name, and her appearance.

Scarlet has a deep grudge against this man, and any man like him. She'd be more than happy to see his end.

Describe The NPC:

 Sarina and Orthello share a close bond to eachother, albeit some heavy differences. Being a devotee to the Morninglord Sarina often spends much of her time in prayer in the morninglord temple within vallaki. She has a reputable hatred for -varja- and undead, often saying she will one day pick  up a weapon and fight such, yet she has never gotten the nerve to do so instead being the simple merchant she is. She and her brother Orthello recently had an argument in which orthello struck her (and regrets it dearly) over her zealous faith to the morninglord. He inquires that her zeal will be the death of her and since then has not spoken to her since and ignores her whenever they see eachother. Her main reason for her faith is because of her love for a morninglordian alcolyte named Ivan Bedrilui who Orthello hates with a passion and can often be heard muttering about the blithering idiot.

The alcolyte truly does mean good and truly does love Orthello's sister but he like her has a zealous hate for undead and has often spoke about his desire to hunt the evil forces, in which though he knows he endangers Sarina would love for her to accompany him so that they may bring -glory- to the morninglord together.

NPC Location : Port-á-Lucine

Describe the NPC : A Nobleman who once held minor political power in Chateaufaux and used his position to force himself on numerous women of the peasantry instilling fear of legal ramifications should any of them decide to 'Talk'. Rémi's mother being one of his unfortunate victims. She had never told her son he was a product of rape though did warn him to be wary of Gérard, confessing the wrong's he had done to her when Rémi was but a boy. Rémi always operated under the assumption that the man who inflicted this malice on his mother and his father were two different people. they are not. Gérard is a typical member of the gentry, arrogant and narcissistic thinking himself beyond reproach and having no regrets to the various ill's he's afflicted over the years, likely thinking he has some rights to do such given his high birth.  He eventually left Chateaufaux and Moved to port-á-Lucine for reasons unknown.


NPC Name: Claudette Durand
Relation to PC: Mother

Describe the NPC :  Claudette Durand made the decision to keep her baseborn child and came to resent it not long after it was born, having little material wealth and no trades to speak of she was forced into the oldest profession, selling her body in exchange for coin. As her son grew older and became more independent she became increasingly detached from him and fell to the use of opium developing an addiction to the substance which saw her further estranged from her young son though they shared the same living space, at some point in his late teens she disappeared and her whereabouts remain unknown to Rémi, though he often tells people she's dead.

PC Name: Constance Sèverin

NPC Name: François Sèverin (Age: 33)
Relation to PC: Brother
NPC Location: Port-a-Lucine

Description: Ten years ago, Constance and her family heard the gang François was part of had been wiped out entirely by bounty hunters. Since then, Constance has assumed her brother dead. They both came from what would be the closest to a middle class Port-a-Lucine has. François became part of a gang in the Quartier Ouvrier largely due to boredom, but became increasingly active in that gang as time went on. My concept for him for the present is that he escaped the bounty hunter assault, and seeing the chance, cut all ties with him family, letting them believe him dead in order to rise up further in the ranks of Port-a-Lucine's underworld.

I'm seeing quite a few NPC relatives that are living in areas that aren't in the Module.  Please refer to the guidelines on page 1.  Remember, this is to build a reservoir of NPCs for the DM staff to use if they should so please to add atmosphere to the server.  We can't use them if they're in areas we have yet to build.

PC Name: Charlemagne Devereaux

I may run over a hundred words with these, but I will try to make it concise and make key points.

NPC Name: Genevieve ??????  (Last name likely changed)
Relation to PC:  Ex-wife
NPC Location:  Somewhere in Dementlieu

Describe the NPC:  She and Charlemagne married at a very young age as was common of the working class in Chateaufaux.  She was fourteen, he was sixteen, and they had a whirlwind relationship for the first year of marriage.  Her family disapproved of the marriage and eventually stopped supplementing their income, which forced Charlemagne to give up his childhood dream of being a magician and get a real job at Clerque and Verbois carriage manufacturers, where he had to work sixteen hour days and never got to spend time with his family.  The young woman's heart was won over by a young man of minor nobility she met at the market, who could both provide for and spend leisure time with the young woman and her daughter.  One day while Charlemagne was at work, she left with him, never to look back.


NPC Name:  Colette ?????? (Last name likely changed)
Relation to PC: Daughter
NPC Location:  Somewhere in Dementlieu

Describe the NPC:  Colette never really knew her father.  At the age of two, her mother took her, and left Charlemagne for a man she was having an affair with.   They moved from Chateaufaux to Port au Lucine with her new husband.  After he lost his wife and child, he quit his job at Clerque and Verbois to travel the world with a dual purpose.  He pursued his childhood dream, traveling the country as a masked magician to hopefully, someday, find his family in a crowd at one of his performances.  While he no longer cares for his ex-wife, he misses his daughter terribly.  She has her father's light brown hair and hazel eyes.  She also had freckles as a young child, but might have outgrown them.  She would be eight years old now.  


NPC Name:  ??????
Relationship to PC:  Loving husband and excellent father to his ex wife and daughter
NPC Location:  Somewhere in Dementlieu

Describe the NPC:  The son of landed nobles.  This mystery man owns a horse farm, where he, Genevieve, and Colette live happily, having forgotten the rough times they lived with a man who could barely provide for them and never got to see them.  This NPC is practical, good with money, and a kind and loving soul.  He is also very handsome, charismatic, and physically strong.  This man truly cares for both Genevieve and Colette and would sooner die than lose either of them.

He regrets marrying an outlander and is embarrassed by her accent, so he has forbidden her from going out in public or speaking to anyone. He physically abuses her, (as well as other kinds of abuse.) He is a proud, controlling man who has kept his wife hidden for nearly three years, to protect his reputation and standing in the Garda.

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.

-----The Holzknecht Family-----

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.

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.

~~~House Rozycki~~~
(http://i1281.photobucket.com/albums/a519/herkles2/rozylki_zpsmzuc9jlr.png)

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

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

NPC Name: Szymon

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

NPC Name:Beau Savu
Relation to PC:Father
Location:Village of Barovia
Description:A descendant from an 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 himself as being an 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 too 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 elsewhere. This is how he and Crina met, he became a hired hand to till the fields. Over time the two became friendly, and then closer till a proposal was offered and accepted.

NPC Name: Crina Savu
Relation to PC:Mother.
Location:Village of Barovia
Description:A mother of three, and a faithful wife. Crina has lived in the village of Barovia all her life, never even stepping foot beyond the villages edge. Crina is a simple woman 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 themselves. 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 elsewhere. For some time the family would have 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 woman was found badly burned the next day. Over time the woman had her child and managed to rebuild a rather tiny cottage on her perished family's land, raising the small girl alone. Using what little wealth was left behind to mend the lands and upkeep 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 woman of bronze skin and dark hair, with eyes of a bottomless blackness.

NPC Name:Mihai Savu
Relation to PC:Oldest Sibling (Brother)
Location:Village of Barovia
Description:A embodiment of his mother, this strapping young man has grown to be an ideal specimen of a halfling young man. While his looks seem taken from his mother he does not seem to share his mother's or father's 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 than 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 an unnatural angle.

NPC Name:Lucian Savu
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 lankier 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 himself 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 seem 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 haggard elderly destitute barovian women. While this halfling woman 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 woman is lucky to of lived as long as she had or perhaps owes much 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 than 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's 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 woman 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 an aptitude for knowledge. Learning speaks 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 family's apparent humble kindness, all three siblings would seem very estranged and cold with one another. Even while growing up together.
* The first fire occurred exactly two decades before the second fire. Both only having a sole survivor.
* Shortly after the birth of their third child, the Savus took on a border. An odd elderly woman dressed in black rags who had nowhere else to go. Seeming to pay her way with watching the children while their mother and father worked the land. The elderly woman seeming to die in a mysterious fall one night many years later, only for it to be ruled an 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 to who it may actually apply. 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 are minor nobles within Dementlieu, holding the title of the Baron of Granthe, which lies in the south of the republic along lake Sebastian. Many of of the men also hold 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 foremost 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 brought the restoration of their lands and titles was given to Gaspard, elevating the family as a whole.

~~ House Voclain ~~
(https://i.gyazo.com/96553a74602a6c1e49dcd56cb13c4d81.jpg)

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.

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.

NPC Location: Vallaki Slums

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words):

Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Here, there, and elsewhere; with her caravan.

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Isabella is a radiantly beautiful Vistana and a talented violinist, though her skill is spent on the sorrowful, bitter strains of the Corvara. Met Mihai when her caravan passed Vallaki; they had a brief tryst, producing Stefan.

Relation to PC: Father

NPC Name: Vasile Sobolescu
Relation to PC: Half-Brother (Younger)
NPC Location: Vallaki - Docks District

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Stefan's youngest brother spent most of his youth moving from illness to illness. He's a soft man, now, easily frightened and controlled by Ioana or Dimitry.

-------------------------------------------------------------

NPC Name: Dimitry Sobolescu
Relation to PC: Half-Brother (Younger)
NPC Location: Vallaki - Docks District

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Dimitry takes after the best traits of Mihai, though has inherited the malice of Ioana. He is a sturdy, vital Barovian man, taking to the pursuits of a woodsman with glee. He takes any other work he can find, as well, which has landed him in trouble from time to time. Shares his mother's disposition towards Stefan, though a facial scar he bears from their last confrontation gives him pause.

During much of the year he fended for himself on the streets as a waif (both his parents worked long, long hours in the guild houses and factories), but during summers and also some holidays he got to spend time with his much loved uncle who was the gardener of the DeFleur estate. This was a reprieve from his gritty rest of the time as basically a latchkey kid. Uncle Michel tried to give Pierron exposure to culture as best he could during these summers. "Pierron we 'ave a family historie serving the Defleurs."

PC Name: Verinne van Haute

NPC Name: Crespin van Haute
Relation to PC: Father
NPC Location: Ste. Ronges, Richemulot

Describe the NPC:

This man is now in his mid-fifties, his expression often haggard and weary, wracked by guilt. Once upon a time, he was a part of one of Richemulot's most prestigious watch companies, the Soleils Craimoisi. However, as a result of Verinne's mother seemingly abandoning them both when she was just a little girl, he turned to the bottle and never bothered to crawl out. His alcoholism caused him to be dismissed dishonorably from Soleils Craimoisi, and kept him from holding a steady job for years. Verinne had to support them both, leading her to the unsavory work she was once known for.

Seemingly both sober and gainfully employed, he remains wracked by guilt over his daughter's disappearance, believing he failed her. He continues to hold out hope she's out there, somewhere.

Her current whereabouts and status both remain unknown, and Verinne has thought very little of her mother and her possible fate.

Describe the NPC: Philip Viray was a common man born to a line of fishermen in Ste. Luciennes. In his early adulthood, he took up what little savings he had and went off to adventure the Core and the known world - in his travels, he was a proponent of helping those in need around him and espousing a derivative of the ideals of the Pureheart Ezrites of Mordent. He often spoke of his good deeds as his Clarion Call, an oath taken on his own honor.

Eventually, after many years and hardships, he decided to settle down with a woman he met on his travels, leaving his vows behind for the sake of family.

During the days of the Revolution, Trudi Viray was dragged out of her family home, then brutalized and killed in the wheat fields surrounding the farm by looters and brigands, while her husband was in the town for market and her children off at play.

The following weeks, Philip Viray was missing from the farmstead, as were his sword and armor.

If he was sick of politics and pettiness he could hardly put up with Dementlieu. He went missing before their caravan arrived in Barovia. Kyou assumes he's dead.

Antoinette was left without a source of income and with growing debt, becoming a courtesan and eventually dying of syphilis in late 773 B.C., having estranged herself from the local Ezrite congregation with her work, and the pills of mercury from the Docteur not quite saving her.

Quote
Georges Deschamps
Father
Mortigny - Richemulot

58 year old industrial merchant. Born dementlieuse, he moved to Richemulot for it's class permeability and married a local woman in Mortigny. He is intelligent and loves his children equally, but expressed this in his very high expectations to their respective skills, pushing them to ambition and a better life since an early age. He indebted himself to the Lavigny family for 20.522 scandals and to the maison des Cent Papillons for 120.000 scandals to pay for their respective educations, before his weavery business failed.

Quote
Cecile La Berche
Sister
Port-A-Lucine - Dementlieu

27 year old classical beauty. She inherited her looks and temperament from the dementlieuse side of the family and is moderately clever. She spent much more time at home with her parents while Felise was at the maison des Cent Papillons for her arcane education. She despises Felise for being their father's "favourite" because he paid so much more for her schooling. Cecile was expected to play her socialite skills well and save the weavery through a beneficial marriage into a minor dementlieuse noble house in the dye trade; the marriage was a success but instead of saving the weavery, Cecile moved to Port-A-Lucine with her husband.

Quote
Thibaud Engels
Husband
Mortigny - Richemulot

42 year old barbier. Though diligent and talented in his field, he is indebted to the Lavigny family for 44.695 scandals in living costs and supplies of trade. A traditional man struggling to find a wife up to his mid-thirties due to his debt, he married Felise out of desire to sire a son and have a seemly family. He considers her mouthy. He was the only one to take her off her father's pocket after his business went bankrupt.

Quote
Jacques Engels
Son
Mortigny - Richemulot

8 years old. His parents sold him into the debt to the Lavigny family as a stable boy in exchange for Felise's permission to work elsewhere. Since his parents worked at the noble's court for as long as he could remember, the change in his life was merely formal – he considers the court's cook and the stablemaster more of a family than Felise and Thibaud.

NPC Name: Luann Eslinger
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Nartok, Darkon. Eslinger Manor.

A gregarious woman who often keeps her knowledge at hearts length, Luann has ever been a mystery in the eyes of her community. Numerous rumors abound about her supposed hobbies, and as rumors go, many aren't too kind due to the way she keeps her private life barred to most, even her own daughter. The most striking of these rumors is the fact that she has never been married.  Not once.  Yet, one day, she began to show.  And in time?  She was immensely gravid with her first and only child. During these days, a young woman had visited the Eslinger Manor on a weekly basis. Considering the two's overly fond reactions to one another, the rumors only continued.

As Beve grew older, Luann pressured the young Eslinger to learn the Arcane, and so set her on the path by tutoring her with a local arcanist. Later, she would see her daughter off on a caravan bound for Demeneltieu, to learn from Port-au-Lucine's arcane "scientists." It all came together quickly, lending her daughter to believe she was sent away for a reason.

Residing in Charbonne, Dementlieu

The old baron of the small demesne town of Charbonne. He is the reclusive head of the de la Rochenoire family, hardly interested in communicating with other nobles after the controversies done by his predecessor, Guillaume de la Rochenorie. His only interest is to maintain his family holdings and assure that it survives. His obsession to his family’s success has come with the pressure for his heirs to marry and provide the family with children. When Balthazar was wed to Valentine Bonacieux, the pair were stressed to provide an heir, for his older brothers had been incapable of doing such at the time.

Sylvie de la Rochenoire née Mercier
Mother

She is a polite, creative and calm woman. Balthazar has always been closer to his mother than with his father, preferring her talents over the family’s industrious side.

Augustin de la Rochenoire
Older Brother
Residing in Charbonne, Dementlieu

The middle-aged Augustin has adopted Bernard’s industrious side, however resents what he calls his father’s “inaction”, criticizing his reclusive nature.

Currently Augustin is married to Claire Brosseau and has a son called Gabriel.

Olivier de la Rochenoire
Second Older Brother
Residing in Charbonne, Dementlieu

Olivier is similar to his older brother, Augustin, and often supports him in his trade expeditions for the family. Balthazar’s relations with Olivier are similar to Augustin, the pair hardly ever speaking to one another due to a lack of common interest. Unlike his brothers, Olivier remains unmarried.

Charlotte de la Rochenoire
Older sister
Residing in Charbonne, Dementlieu

Along with both his mother and younger sister, Charlotte gets along with Balthazar very well. The pair often growing up together and sharing their artistic works. Any matters personal, the pair would always trust one another. Throughout their lives the two have supported one another when in distress.

Lambert de la Rochenoire
Uncle
Residing in Port-a-Lucine, Dementlieu

Guillaume was a controversial figure and responsible for the family’s drop in popularity due to open comments against the lower class and open support over the ruling of Lord-Governor Foquelaine. Balthazar never had the opportunity to meet Guillaume for he passed away prior to his birth.

Gaston de la Rochenoire
Son
Deceased

Gastion is the child that was not meant to be. The complications of the birth produced an offspring that did not survive its first week in a loss that took a great toll on the couple. It resulted in years of seclusion from both Balthazar and Valentine, with rumors spread that the young woman required additional care to acquaint herself with the death.

Spoiler: show
Quote
Moulded from humble beginnings as Wine sellers, Peregrinus' were initially simple merchants in the Wine industry, having little to their name aside from a sweet, yet clear vintage of Wine that came from vineyards close by the city of Karg. The founder of the house, Secundus Valerian Peregrinus was the son of a simple merchant who, due to his exceptional skill with book-keeping, caught the eye of an affluent Baron in Ualle, one of many stops for the caravan his family operated. Through his skills, the Baron of house Vociferor became wealthier by the day. Upon Azalin's disappearance, Baron Vociferor grew proud and more dangerously, ambitious, starting a feud with a neighbouring baron in hopes of taking their lands and increasing his own holdings.

The bitter feud went on for five long years where many from each hamlet died at the behest of their lords. Upon Azalins return, seeing the damage the two nobles had wrought, he got rid of the two nobles. To the rival neighbouring land, the barons son took over the house, in the case of House Vociferor, the war he had with his neighbour had not been kind to him and he had lost his sons. Azalin instead noted that despite the destruction, the Vineyards, run in Baron Vociferors stead by Secundus had not only continued their sales, but nigh doubled them. In recognition of his efforts, and his affiliation with the previous house non withstanding, Azalin appointed Secundus as Baron of Ualle and it's holdings, tasked to continue the work he had already wrought. Seeking to establish himself and seeing potential in the youngest daughter of the late Baron Vociferor, Secundus had his layabout son, Pelagious marry , cementing both houses in marriage and later, children.


House Peregrinus Emblem:

A black Falcon clutching an equally black rose upon a escutcheon of wine-red. The Falcon symbolises the Peregrinus name, the black-rose a symbol once belonging to the Vociferor family, now clearly held by the Peregrinus House. The wine-red escutcheon points to the families vineyard roots.

Whatever coin he makes from bouncing between jobs that doesn't go to paying rent, goes to poison his liver.

Quote
NPC Name: Emmanuelle Mimieux

Relation to PC: Mother

NPC Location: Quartier Ouvrier, Port-à-Lucine

Describe the NPC: Fallen for Jerome's charms, Emmanuelle was a bright-faced girl that quickly became embittered with her fate. She works the loom, selling simple tailoring goods to her neighbors, whenever she is not cussing out her husband or throwing a shoe at her children.

Quote
NPC Name: Paul Mimieux

Relation to PC: Older Brother

NPC Location: Cimetière des Âmes-Sereines

Describe the NPC: A stalwart patriot of Dementlieu, Paul fought in the failed revolution and lost his life in the streets of Quartier Publique. He was, by all accounts, the pride of the family.

Quote
NPC Name: Robine Mimieux

Relation to PC: Twin Sister

NPC Location: Chateaufaux

Describe the NPC: The estranged (and technically youngest) Mimieux, Robine does not get along with any member of her family and has left them behind for promises of a brighter future serving in the household of a southern aristocrat. She does not write nor send back solars to her struggling kin, and since 771 B.C., no one back home has heard word from her.

Curiously, even though she is without a doubt Brigitte's twin, the two look nothing alike.

PC Name: Lidia Chirilov

Quote
NPC Name: Vasile Chirilov
Relation to PC: Father (Executed in 768 B.C.)
NPC Location: Buried on the Grounds of the Wachter Family's Estate

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Vasile was a Lance Corporal within the Wachter Family's militia and participated in the War of Copper Knives. He was present at the Battle of the Banner, but saw little action. He was, however, heavily involved in the taking of Vallaki by the late Lord-Boyar's forces. Fanatically loyal to the Wachters and zealous in his newly-discovered Ezrite faith, he was a true believer in the righteousness of the Wachters' cause. Ultimately, he would be one of the unlucky ones executed after Strahd von Zarovich XI ordered the decimation of the Wachter militia at the War of Copper Knives' conclusion.

Lidia was far closer to her father than to her mother, and this shows. To this day, Lidia cannot bring herself to forgive the Grey City, the Wachter Family, or the "Dilisnya cultists" for the roles they had in taking her father away from her.

Quote
NPC Name: Ecaterina Chirilov
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Lives in a farm on Krezk's outskirts

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): The loss of her husband caused Ecaterina to turn towards the bottle for comfort. When this wasn't enough, she brought one man after another into the bed she and Vasile once shared. Ecaterina's current lover, who gambled away the family's money and successfully convinced her that Lidia ought to be wed off herself so they can be rid of her, proved to be the final straw and Lidia made her way east with only the clothes on her back.

Quote
NPC Name: Pavel Chirilov
Relation to PC: Brother
NPC Location: Lives on a farm in Krezk's outskirts

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): A dull-witted ox of a man who tends to the day-to-day operations of the Chirilov family's failing farm. With Lidia's sudden departure, Pavel must also handle the farm's book-keeping as well. The results are mixed, as Pavel was never a man for numbers.

Quote
NPC Name: Magdalena Chirilov
Relation to PC: Grandmother (Paternal, Passed Away in 765 B.C.)
NPC Location: Deceased

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Lidia never knew her grandmother terribly well. However, when she passed, Lidia inherited a peculiar book from her. Its contents, until recently, remained a mystery.

Since Mirabel left home, she's lived on her own, until one day her home was found with a splintered door and a mess of blood inside, the woman herself nowhere to be found.

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): A rabid alcoholic with a troublesome streak of getting himself into trouble more often than not due to the impetuous tongue his drunken self has. It is a small miracle he scrapes a living, doesn't hold a stable job instead resorting to petty crime mainly involving pickpocketting.

Quote
Valerian Desrosiers
Grandfather
Residing in Valay, Dementlieu

Marquis de Valay is a rotound man approaching his late sixties and his boisterous manners easily remind the people around him that he is not ready to pass on just yet. As with many in the family before him, he is quick to anger but also quick to cool down and forgive. Beneath the raucous laughter and at times, a rather easy going manner, there is a scheming mind that has hold on to the position as the head of the family and sought to ensure a prosperous future for the grandchildren. While there are at times tensions with the grandsons, he is known to be doting on the granddaughter, the delicate bloom.

Quote
Arlette Desrosiers
Grandmother
Buried in Valay, Dementlieu

Marquise de Valay passed away peacefully in her sleep from old age in the beginning of 775 BC and was buried on the family lands. Unlike her husband, Arlette had a gentler way with people and often quietly soothed any tense relations caused. During her life she had come to oversee many cultivars of roses herself. She was a traditional woman and her marriage to her husband was not a love match but they managed the lands and family efficiently, balancing each other out in temperament.

Quote
Amand Desrosiers
Father
Buried in the cemetery by Port-a-Lucine, Dementlieu

Executed in the wake of the revolution 770 BC. Amand was known as a softer man than Valerian, seeming to have taken after his mother's personality more. There were often tensions between Amand and Valerian, with Valerian being of the opinion that his heir was not responsible enough to manage the family lands.


Quote
Marilene Desrosiers
Mother
Buried in the cemetery by Port-a-Lucine, Dementlieu

Executed in the wake of the revolution 770 BC. Marilene was a woman of fine bearing and with fine tastes, which her husband did not deny her. Her own family were accustomed to the easy luxuries of Port-a-Lucine which the border nobles of House Desrosiers were not concerned with to the same extent.

Quote
Emile Desrosiers
Oldest brother - born 753 BC
Residing in Valay, Dementlieu

Married to Edwige with a young son by the name of Gabin. As the heir, Emile is trying to do what he can to please his grandfather the Marquis. He often finds himself falling short, struggling to meet with the demands and accused of being too much like his father. Whether the struggles are due to his own incompetence or too high demands of the Marquis is up to debate. Often loud ones on the family estate. He is close to his brother, Emeric.

Quote
Emeric Desrosiers
Younger brother - Born 754 BC
Residing in Valay, Dementlieu

Unmarried. Known to have a clever head on his shoulders but also sharing some of the Marquis' temper. He is very supportive of his brother Emile and tries to mend relations between Emile and their grandfather but just as often also makes them worse. He is pressured to find a wife but not to accept just any kind of marriage arrangement.

Quote
PC Name: Severin Marceaux
NPC Name: Marianne Belmont
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Middle-Upper class residence in Chateaufaux
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Marianne is an artful individual who is mostly disconnected from the mundane realms of politics and finances, preferring instead to dwell on beauty and expression. In fact she considers herself to be a devoted servant and patron of the Arts, no doubt enabled by the fact her brother, the family patriarch, adequately takes care of the dirtier realities of upper class living. After many years in Richemulot, she has recently returned to Chateaufaux to be a woman of leisure and invest in the budding artistic talents of the city from the ashes of her failed career as a singer.

Relation to PC: Estranged Mother

NPC Location: Near Mistree, Dementlieu

Describe the NPC: A tall, thin woman with angular facial features and a softer voice. Her hair is a deep red, and her eyes are a deep green. She is middle-aged, and looks it. Héloïse has worked her whole life as a nurse in the countryside near the town of Mistree, but became pregnant out of wedlock after falling in love with a visitor. Soon after her son's birth, Héloïse handed her child over to an old widow in a local hamlet. The young Arséne had always wanted to spend time with his mother, but out of shame, she always kept her distance.

NPC Location: Buried near Mistree, Dementlieu

Describe the NPC: In life she was an elderly woman who often dressed modestly and conducted herself very politely around others. Her nationality was oddly difficult to place. She had fully raised all of her children and outlived her husband by the time a nurse appeared on her doorstep and pleaded for the woman to take the illegitimate child from her. Celine hesitantly agreed, and raised the young Arséne on her own until he was old enough to be taken as an apprentice. Sometime during Arséne's travels, Celine died of old age in her sleep. Arséne returned to his hometown long enough to attend her funeral.

Seeing talent in the young Arséne, he took the boy as his apprentice and educated him in the ways of a bard.  While Arséne had always shown promise, Guy was frustrated with his pupil's absentmindedness and impulsive nature, and would often be strict and demanding around his apprentice in hopes of pushing him to be more diligent.

Quote
PC Name: Claire Artois
NPC Name: Guy-Jean Artois, Marquis de Damas
Relation to PC: Father
NPC Location: Chateau Eau Vive of Damas
Describe the NPC: Guy-Jean is a war hero, leading Artois forces in skirmishes against Falkovian forces, his successes stemming from a tactical savvy and intelligence. He likes his hunting hounds, his wife, and his children, and in age has forgotten the youthful energy of a soldier in favor of the reserved dignity of a cautious ruler. His presence easily intimidating to lesser men, as he carries himself as a man who has purchased his privilege in war, and knows it.

Quote
PC Name: Claire Artois
NPC Name: Evangeline Artois
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Chateau Eau Vive of Damas
Describe the NPC: Evangeline Artois is the textbook image of a dictionary's definition of a stately matriarch. Where her husband is an easy-going man with a tendency to be severe, Evangeline is severe with a tendency of being easy-going. Her talents lie in business accounting and botany, and through her keen intellect has guided the family finances to prosperity. She is highly critical, and generally intimidating to speak to.

PC Name: Claire Artois
NPC Name: Killian Artois
Relation to PC: Oldest Brother (heir)
NPC Location: Chateau Eau Vive of Damas
Describe the NPC:  A young man, polite and easy going with stunning charisma and social grace. Killian is sensitive, and likes poetry, literature, art, and botany- a far cry from the legacy of gunpowder and steel he's to inherit. The burden of expectations weighs heavily on him, aware that he lacks the military experience of his father, though his studies in the military sciences boast impressive grades. He gets on famously with the youngest Artois, and remains in regular letters with her.

PC Name: Claire Artois
NPC Name: Angelica Artois
Relation to PC: Older sister
NPC Location: Chateau Eau Vive of Damas
Describe the NPC: Angelica is the spinning image of her father with the severity and wit of her mother. Highly critical like her mother, she has been picky about her future husband, and prefers to busy herself in the botanist's shed on the expansive property. Effortlessly, Angelica maintains the illusion of elegance and prestige sought by most courtiers, though the cold veneer seems to go deeper than just the skin. She trains closely with her mother to learn more about the affairs of the house and how to manage accounts.

Describe the NPC:   Jean-Luc is living his best life. He lacks the responsibilities of Killian or the ambition of Angelica, and enjoys the frequent Artois parties with lavish indifference. Noblesse Obliege? Jean-Luc doesn't know her. He answers most problems with his boisterous laughter which carries heavily in any hall, and supposedly is an excellent shot, even after a bottle deep in wine.


The Aunties

PC Name: Claire Artois
NPC Name: Vivienne, Gabrielle, Marie Motte
Relation to PC: Aunts (mother's sisters)
NPC Location: Motte estate
Describe the NPC: The weird sisters Motte are rare to come onto the Dementlieuse scene, and for good reason. Strange, eccentric, and with a fondness for wildlife and nature, the sisters live in an estate that lost its battle with the greenhouse, and is over-grown with flora. In best depictions they are gardeners who prefer a pastoral life style, in worst they are strange pagan witches who whisper to plants. It's hard to imagine the weird sisters are related to the business-practical Evangeline, though it's apparent they don't get along. The Aunties adore the Artois children and Guy-Jean, much to Evangeline's dismay. They have a fondness for the estranged and strange, and dislike Dementlieuse nobility as a whole, preferring their plant craft.

Having lost her children and first husband to a mysterious illness, misfortune had befell every other husband she married afterwards. She was hired as Claire's private Governess, where she raised and conditioned the youngest Artois into the woman she is today. Highly critical, and often times verbally and physically abusive, much to the ignorance of the Artois parents, this woman dwells in unpleasant memories of a childhood spent in isolation.

Having always lived in the shadow of the family, the man keeps his bitterness to himself and his barony under his far more charming and accomplished brother's rule. His sour mood could also be attributed to the recent death of his wife in childbirth. He remembers her by his only child, a babe not old enough to be taken out of the swaddle. He is generally unpleasant to speak to.

Family of Jacques Boucher (to be appended as needed)

Spoiler: FATHER • show

NPC Name: Guy Boucher
Relation to PC: Father
Location of NPC: Chateaufaux
Description of NPC:

Guy Boucher is the boisterous, big bellied, hairy, burly father of Jacques. Despite standing at an impressive six feet-three inches, his supreme friendliness and joviality makes him more akin to Santa Claus than anything approaching imposing. He is the owner and proprietor of a small bakery on the outskirts of Chateaufaux, passed down from his father, and he is very proud of this small accomplishment achieved by his family. Alongside his wife, who he loves dearly, Guy has managed to keep his family in relative comfort, firmly placing them within the lower-middle class of the city. The rising price of grain has impacted his livelihood significantly, as he refuses to significantly raise his prices to accommodate this change. This, in concert with perhaps a bit excessive amount of charity to those in need (he is quite keen to give a free baguette to struggling persons), as made his family increasingly reliant on their son for relief, who supplements their income by sending home a portion of his weekly wage. Though he comes from humble beginnings, he and his wife raised Jacques to be a well-mannered, educated man. This, in turn, has placed some faint tension between the two, as Guy finds his son a bit pretentious and uptight in contrast to his direct and easygoing disposition. Nevertheless, the two cherish each other, and Guy writes Jacques frequently, inquiring on his well-being and current happenings, as well as playfully pestering him to find a wife and carry on the family line.


Spoiler: MOTHER • show

NPC Name: Diane Boucher (nee Nôtre)
Relation to PC: Mother
Location of NPC: Chateaufaux
Description of NPC:

Diane Boucher is a slight and diminutive figure beside her loving husband. A wisp of a woman, Diane is reserved, soft-spoken, and introspective, taking to observation and quiet contemplation rather than direct confrontation. She inherited this disposition from her own parents, who emigrated from Mordent when she was in the womb under circumstances never explained to their dear child. At times she can come across as distant and even downright melancholy, but she has the heart of a poet, and writes feverishly. Perhaps this is what drew her to Guy, who met her in his father's bakery when she was just a young girl. The two children conspired to steal a honey cake from the shop, invoking the sharp consternation of both families, and have been inseperable since, and she is still quietly moved by the rowdy man's big heart. Despite her faint presence, she has shown to be quite adept at subtle affairs, using her sensitivity to others and a profound resourcefulness to find advantage in otherwise trepidatious situations. Perhaps this is why people say Jacques takes more after his mother, though the similarities in physical appearance should not be overlooked. She shares the same stark black hair, hers now streaked with silver threads of time's march, and sharp, angular features. The anxiety of current affairs is not lost on her, and she represents a more logical voice in Guy's decision-making, and more than once has she pressed him to react to the grain shortage with pragmatism, though she cannot bring herself to scold him for his charity, which she deeply admires.

Restless, they married young, leaving Immol behind, settling in the reconstructed Krofburg in 764. Keen botanist Miron found lucrative work in the vineyards. When the ash came, everything changed: the vines withered. The harvest doubtful, the Thaani was first on the chopping block. Now, he works down the mines. It takes a toll. Each day, he returns a more broken man, barely making enough to support the family, leaving Anjeza despondent and desperate.

Krofburg is all they have ever known, though by Barovian standards they have been well-provided for.

Relation to PC: Mother, age 64
NPC Location: Blaustein
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Eleonore is an old woman, her hair silvered and youth now gone. As a young woman, she worked as an escort in Blaustein. She is a boisterous woman using her cleverness and wit to get her way. As she grew older she became more begrudging towards her lost youth. Now she spends her time cleaning and managing younger escorts as a sort of matriarch. Like all Blausteiners she views her Lord with love, even wishing to be swept off her feet and taken to a life of luxury.

Quote
Name: Unknown
Relation to PC: Father, unknown age.
NPC Location: Unknown
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): As described by Éléonore, Lambert's father was a handsome young man who often would pay to see only her. He would arrive on a ship every month and spend a week celebrating with his coin and with Éléonore. After the week was done he would sail off for business. Though, once she became pregnant, he never returned. All he left behind was his hat, which Lambert wears to this day.

His shriveled brown eyes always squinting and his mouth formed in a perpetual scowl. He spends his days drinking at the Inn spending what little coin he makes working as one of Lord Bluebeards Town Guards. His ambition outweighs his cleverness most often as he strives to become one of Bluebeard's trusted castle guards. His relationship with Lambert is strained at best as his younger sibling.

Quote

Relation to PC: Sibling's Father, age 58
NPC Location: Dead at sea
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Renard was a shrewd old man who was the runt of the bunch.

In his youth, he was a strong sailor though over time his sailor tattoos became wrinkled and faded. He died one night on sea never to return. His son, Gillebert, still holds Renard with high regard often blaming his mother and Lambert for his final sail on the sea.

A severe man and druid who believes he has a strong connection with the old gods of the forest and raised Creighton to follow in his footsteps to keeping the people of the forest safe from myriad curses he feared.

THE DIMITRESCU FAMILY
PC Name: Elisabeta Dimitrescu

Quote
NPC Name: Dimitriy Dimitrescu
Relation to PC: Father
NPC Location: Missing as of 5/27

Describe the NPC: A heavy-browed merchant & trapper of intimidating physique, with short black hair and glassy brown eyes. His skin is medium-toned. He speaks slowly; not because of any mental deficiency, but because he chooses his words carefully. He sells animal-skin rugs and tanned hides & furs. Contrary to what one may expect, he is proud of his daughter for her recent advances up the social ladder - he expresses this readily and encourages her to reach even further for the family's sake.

Quote
NPC Name: Steliana Dimitrescu
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Vallaki, Western Outskirts - the graveyard, deceased

Quote
NPC Name: Sergeiy Dimitrescu
Relation to PC: Brother
NPC Location: Vallaki, Western Outskirts - any patch of farmland

Describe the NPC: A gaunt young man with short black hair & empty brown eyes, born with a bum leg that kept him from ever enlisting with the garda. His skin is medium-toned. He works on one of the farms outside of Vallaki, for it is all that he can do; he is shunned by all of his family except Elisabeta, which has led to them cultivating a healthy kinship. He is proud of his sister, just like his father… though he is envious enough of her newfound station that he would do whatever it takes to achieve the same.

Quote
NPC Name: Nicolai Dimitrescu
Relation to PC: Brother
NPC Location: Vallaki, Docks - moving boxes and/or repairing ships

Describe the NPC: A charming & muscular young man, with tied-up black hair & soulful brown eyes. His skin is medium-toned. He often speaks before he actually thinks; he is a passionate man, so much so that his heart rivals that of an Invidian's. He works at the docks but helps his father out in the Market District on occasion. Unlike his father, he is resentful of his sister's recent ascension to Vallaki's upper echelon by way of serving the Adamachis - as such, his interactions with her are tense and full of one-sided contempt.

Quote
NPC Name: Mihail Dimitrescu
Relation to PC: Brother
NPC Location: Krezk - the Sanctuary of First Light

Describe the NPC: A portly young man of long black hair & gentle brown eyes, with well-defined laugh lines despite his often grim expression. His skin is medium-toned. Following the massacre at Krezk Outpost in April of 776, he has started to volunteer at the Sanctuary of First Light. It is suspected that he has grown sympathetic to the Gundarakites' cause - even willing to procure them certain supplies they may not be permitted to themselves. Should this be found out, he may face dire consequences...

When Zeidenberg was re-taken in 771, the Gárdonyi home was sacked by Von Zarovich soldiers. Nine months later, Noémi was born.

Though her current status is unknown, Emánuel hopes to have her smuggled out of Zeidenberg before the conflict comes to a head.
Irisko was smuggled out of Zeidenberg two days before the fateful elections. Emánuel transported her to Krofburg and found her work at one of the vineyards. He affords her accommodations.
She is a very shy and nervous woman, and incredibly short-statured. She doesn't speak much common-tongue.

Silvio taught Florin all he knew about archaeology, and even had the youth accompany him on field expeditions (including a month-long journey to Pharazia). In the latter years of Florin's service, Silvio came to regard him as a son. When he died, the property and all contained within it was seized by the authorities due to Silvio's outstanding debts.

It is only by the faith of the Lawgiver does he even consider that rewards await him one day. Øistein has never formally met Kaazimir; however he has attended the Citadel fane many a time and has tried to find him.

NPC Name: Kaarina Aaker
Relation to PC: Eldest Sister (Second of the Dvornikov Children)
NPC Location: Kantora, Nova Vaasa
Occupation: Married member of the Dvornikov family

Describe the NPC: Kaarina is the first daughter of the Dvornikov family. It was not easy being the first Dvornikov daughter as there was very high expectations set. After all, when the time would come she would be married off into another family of wealth as a means of expanding Vegaar's reach. Kaarina always had a curious and inquisitive nature. While Vegaar disapproved of educating Kaarina, it was by her mother Maagnhild's wishes and dying requests that she continue to be educated. When Kaarina came of age she was married to a man belonging to another merchant family: The Aaker family. Despite being displeased in her fathers choice in husband, Kaarina welcomed an escape from the Dvornikov house hold. Kaarina detested her father and his very apathetic nature. While her husband may be an idiot, he is a controllable idiot that she can more than handle. Kaarina has never met Kaazimir but is aware that he exists.

NPC Name: Gudmund Dvornikov
Relation to PC: Older Brother (Third of the Dvornikov Children; Deceased)
NPC Location: Bergovitsa, Nova Vaasa
Occupation: Merchant

Describe the NPC: Gudmund was the third child and second son of the Dvornikov family. A frail man who took a great interest in his studies growing up. Gudmund was absolutely fascinated with science, astrology, and the world around him. Though he too was eager to take over the family business perhaps a little too eager. In the year 762 Gudmund was found dead in the woods. Multiple stab wounds, disembowelment, and hanging. Gudmunds death was declared a murder; however the murderer was never to be found. Gudmund never met Kaazimir but was aware that a brother of his was sent away at birth.
~
NPC Name: Niklaas 'Crooked Nick' Dvornikov
Relation to PC: Older Brother (Fourth of the Dvornikov Children)
NPC Location: Bergovitsa, Nova Vaasa
Occupation: Merchant/Criminal

Describe the NPC: The fourth child of Vegaar and Maagnhild was perhaps the most unfortunate of them all. Niklaas came out of the womb sickly and grotesque, and yet he was no caliban. Niklaas' stood hunched over with a large brow and a slightly misshapen jaw. The mans nose was stunted and turned up, and his eyes were large. It was his hideousness that lead to him being the most walked over of the Dvornikov children. Ridiculed in school, ridiculed at home, and by his father; life was difficult for Niklaas. It infuriated him when he had heard he was at the near bottom of Vegaar's will. The only one below him is Kaazimir who is considered so distant from the family that he may as well not be family. Niklaas despite his offensive yet weak and harmless appearance was truly neither. At night Niklaas would join the crowd of criminals when he wasn't working in the back storage rooms of the family. Among them he was known as 'Crooked Nick'.  Using his underworld ties, Niklaas has been plotting against Vegaar, Øistein, Gudmund, and Jørgen for years. It is only a misfortune for him that most of his plans have failed. The only ones who have sympathized for Niklaas were his two sisters but even they were unnerved by his appearance. Niklaas has never met Kaazimir and does not think much of him; infact he questions if Kaazimir was even real or if Vegaar actually murdered Maagnhild and was using the tale of an infant sent to the fane as a means of covering up the 'murder' of his mother. Niklaas hates Vegaar the most out of all the Dvornikov children.
~
NPC Name: Jørgen Dvornikov
Relation to PC: Older Brother (Fifth of the Dvornikov Children)
NPC Location: Bergovitsa, Nova Vaasa
Occupation: Merchant

Describe the NPC: Jørgen was gifted with a silver tongue and handsome face. Though this came at a heavy price. Hardly competent in his studies, and easily distracted. Jørgen is considered the 'dumb' one. Though despite his lack of intellect he would be a well accomplished salesman and always had a woman in his arms. Handsome, masculine, and strong. Jørgen would have been the favorite of the brood if he didn't have such a tendency to pull the family into trouble. Often times it is other siblings who have to help him out of unfortunate situations with just about anyone. Jørgen has been married three times and constantly finds himself in trouble balancing his families. It was his 'tomfoolery' that Vegaar decided he would be just above Niklaas when it came to a family inheritance. Jørgen has never met Kaazimir, forgets he's even been told about Kaazimir, and the few times he remembers he has a younger brother out there somewhere he thinks his name is Knut.
~
NPC Name: Maargot Dvornikov
Relation to PC: Youngest Sister (Sixth of the Dvornikov Children)
NPC Location: Bergovitsa, Nova Vaasa
Occupation: Bachelorette

Describe the NPC: Maargot is the second youngest of all the Dvornikov children. Unmarried and distressed constantly. Maargot wants to be married so she can escape the Dvornikov household and acquire a new life. Maargot is a vain woman constantly looking for a husband in order to fulfill her goals. Vegaar sees her as a disappointment since none wish to wed her and she remains unmarried. Of all the children remaining in the Dvornikov house; Maargot is most sympathetic and kind to Niklaas. In turn Niklaas insists that Maargot is much like their mother in both appearance and demeanor. Maargot was too young to remember Kaazimir and has never met him. While she disregards Niklaas' conspiracy theory about their father having actually murdered their Mother Maagnhild; deep down she believes it is skeptical.
~
NPC Name: Klaus Naas
Relation to PC: Adoptive Father
NPC Location: Bergovitsa, Nova Vaasa
Occupation: Retired Gudkaedes and Clergy with Bergovitsa Citadel Fane

Describe the NPC: The most outstanding of all of Kaazimir's father figures growing up in the Citadel Fane. Klaus was a grizzled old warrior who held both his men and young Kaazimir at a high military standard. Everything the travelling Gudkaedes learned came from Klaus. Klaus was careful and strict in his raising and training of young Kaazimir. Holding him to incredibly high standards but also giving him a loving push from time to time. Though he never showed how much he truly cared for Kaazimir. Klaus held it a secret that he could not have children on his own and saw Kaazimir as his only opportunity to raise a son. To this day, Kaazimir and Klaus still communicate through written letter.

Maristela Beldorn

Mother: Bethia Cantwell
NPC Location: Nosos
Bethia was a maid working in the Beldorn household. She was seduced by the master, Herman Beldorn, but was cast out when she fell pregnant. Destitute, she turned to petty theft to eke out a living. In a bid to get Herman's attention, she gave the child his surname and harrassed his family constantly (to no avail). When Maristela turned seven, Bethia sent the child to work as a servant in a merchant household. Maristela had a knack for cookery, and was well-liked by her employers. When Maristela turned fourteen, Bethia began encouraging the girl to employ her 'womanly wiles' to earn favors from her masters. Maristela refused, and her deranged mother reasoned that she had no use for her beauty if she would not take advantage of it. She then attacked and maimed Maristela.
Presently, Bethia lives in utter squalor in the Nosian sprawl and wastes away from sickness.

Father: Herman Beldorn
NPC Location: Nosos, aristocratic compound.
Herman is a wealthy financier, and a member of Nosos' decadent aristocracy. He has invested in several of Lord Scleris' coal-mining operations around the Core.
Herman has sired no less than fourteen children; however, only the bastard-child Maristela has survived infancy. With his third wife now deceased, and his health failing, he seeks to locate his sole child.

Wakana Ikegami

Father
Spoiler: show
NPC Name: Taishiro Ikegami
NPC Location: Beikoku, Rokuma Táiyoo
Describe the NPC: Once a leader of a vicious yakuza gang, Taishiro Utsuhi improved his social status by marrying into the Ikegami family. Being an orphan with no connection to his birth family, he gladly accepted the noble name and cast away his old identity. Now as a proper Ikegami, he continued the clan's rise to power through shrewd deals and underworld contacts, proving the wisdom of his father-in-law's choice of an heir. It seems only one thing is troubling this man of success - the lack of a male progeny.


Mother
Spoiler: show
NPC Name: Chiyo Ikegami
NPC Location: Beikoku, Rokuma Táiyoo
Describe the NPC: Nobody knows what Chiyo-hime thought when her father, the previous daimyo, arranged her marriage to Taishiro. She seemed to approach it with a dull acceptance, and while there was never any love between the two, Taishiro seemed to respect his wife... or perhaps fear her. She has not been seen in public for over a decade, with many speculating she might have died or commited suicide.


Older sisters
Spoiler: show

NPCs Location: Beikoku, Rokuma Táiyoo
Describe the NPCs: Not much is known about the daughers of the clan, as they usually keep to themselves and have little interest in the world beyon the walls of Osaki Castle.

NPC Name:Zakuro
Describe the NPC: Zakuro was more of a parent to her sisters than their aloof father and absent mother ever were. Even after they all grew up, she is still the one to tend to the needs of the family, unoficially replacing Chiyo as the lady of the house.

NPC Name:Sadako,
Describe the NPC: A quiet sort, Sadako has an unhealthy interest in knives, which she collects obsessively, always eager to try them out...

NPC Name:Momoka
Describe the NPC: A childlish and immature individual. Momoka rarely cares about anything other than the beautiful clothes, toys and cosmetics brought by the gaijin merchants wishing to curry favours with Taishiro. Ikegami children quickly found out she cannot be trusted with family pets.

NPC Name:Tenko
Describe the NPC: The tomboy Tenko could never accept Taishiro's dismissive treatment of her and her sisters and - against his will - started to train with a sword. She keeps chasing the impossible dream of becoming a samurai under the prince's command.

NPC Name:Inori
Describe the NPC: Nobody can quite tell what is wrong with Inori. She claims to see and hear things others cannot, raving about ghosts and demons living within the walls of the castle. These days the only people visiting her rooms are the servants forced to bring her food and water.

NPC Name:Haruka

Severin de Roquefort

Quote
Louis-Joseph de Roquefort (Father)

The present head and face of House de Roquefort. Louis-Joseph is the younger brother of the infamous Augustin de Roquefort, Vicomte de Vexin. Louis-Joseph makes his home in Port-a-Lucine after what is speculated to be his expulsion from the familial estates after conflict with his older brother regarding his marriage to a commoner woman. He is a severe and greying man in his middling fifties who serves the law offices of the magistrate. He is known to place heavy value on tradition but is struggling to maintain the dwindling reputation of what is now a weak and dishonored household. It is observed he pays routine respects to the grave of his late wife and has never considered courting another to replace her.

Quote
Charlotte de Roquefort (Mother - Deceased)

The noble wife of Louis-Joseph now two decades deceased. The youngest daughter of a wealthy baron, her dowry brought further wealth to the de Roquefort line. Her union with Louis-Joseph was arranged at a time when the reputation of the family was without fault. Charlotte died from a grave illness in what is regarded by others as the first of ill tidings for the blighted Roquefort line. The terrible history that would follow soured relations with the baron and what once had been a doting grandfather has now become a distant memory to the adult children of Charlotte.

Quote
Marion de Roquefort (Younger sister)

Marion is the second child of the family. Perhaps inspired by the conviction of her older brother to defy their father, she has grown to be rebellious and resentful of the feminine role within the gentry. She occupies her time writing an unpopular paper contesting the treatment of women, discussing such topics as inheritance laws, marriage, conduct, and dress. She is regarded as controversial and avoided in proper circles, wearing her hair short and preferring styles fashionable among men. Scandalous gossip surrounds her conduct and she is rumored to have paramours among the common worker class. Despite her outspoken opinions, she appears inclined to keep her station among the gentry and refuses to marry any of her fair weather lovers.

Quote
Martin de Roquefort (Younger brother)

Martin de Roquefort suffers from the same illness that claimed his mother years prior. He is a fragile man who has attempted many professions but ultimately returns to the mercy of his father when his addiction to drink and other substances leads to his dismissal. His father has often sought to correct his ways but ultimately succumbs to guilt surrounding the fragile constitution of his child and the resemblance he holds to his late wife. Martin resents his elder siblings for their health and passions as he wanders listlessly through his vices, unable to realize his own dreams. He has all but exhausted the friends of his youth and it is rumored his indiscretions have caused lingering upset to more than a few families among the gentry.

LIVING
Spoiler: show
Quote
NPC Name: Marciel de Chauret, Baron de Roquefeuil
Relation to PC: Father
NPC Location: Manoir de Chauret - Roquefeuil - Richemulot

Describe the NPC: A dark-haired man with one clean streak of silver denoting middle age; his features are angular, often cold in countenance, and it has been said that he lacks the capability to smile entirely. He follows the ever-shifting fashion trends of Richemuloise nobility and dresses in dark, muted colors. His voice is sharp and clear like a knife cutting through to the ears, and his words tend to reflect these very qualities.

Quote
NPC Name: Lemoura de Chauret
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Manoir de Chauret - Roquefeuil - Richemulot

Describe the NPC: Her hair is a shining platinum blonde, almost stark white, and it cascades freely down her back with the faintest of grey strands. Whereas her husband's features are sharp, hers are soft and inspire a sense of innate trust; she is the warmth to his frigidity. The dresses she wears are always at least five to ten years out-of-date and boast bright or pastel colors. Her voice is quiet and sweeter than honey, and she speaks almost too nicely to whomever she deigns to. She is the sister of Lisseta.

Quote
NPC Name: Guthelaque de Chauret
Relation to PC: Uncle, by blood
NPC Location: Manoir de Chauret - Roquefeuil - Richemulot

Describe the NPC: His hair, once dark, is a striking silver brought on by stress and middle age. Much like his brother, he bears a sharp face and an expression of grim severity -- however, the angularity of his features have been reduced by his sheer weight. He tends to forgo the fashion trends of Richemuloise nobility and dresses eccentrically with bright colors and striking patterns. His voice is booming and powerful like gunfire, and so he tends towards bomastic vocabulary to complement such.

Quote
NPC Name: Lisseta de Chauret
Relation to PC: Aunt, married to Guthelaque
NPC Location: Manoir de Chauret - Roquefeuil - Richemulot

Describe the NPC: To those who have managed to catch a glimpse of her, she looks almost identical to her sister Lemoura, except for the fact that her hair is stark white and pulled into a tight bun. Her dresses are of the same antiquity yet tend towards black and other drab colors. As for her voice, it is nonexistent -- she is a mute, no better than a pretty doll propped up in the background of an otherwise dour scene. Particular rumormongers claim that she is an honest-to-goodness ghost.

NPC Name: Gregoire de Chauret
Relation to PC: Grandfather
NPC Location: Cimetière de Chauret - Roquefeuil - Richemulot

Describe the NPC: The old patriarch of the family; he who started it all, kicking off the house's death-spiral into their hated reputation and later obscurity. He died just five years after the family fled from Dementlieu in 746 on accusations of necromantic dabbling. His tomb in the family cemetery is dilapidated and abandoned, exemplary of the family's eagerness to escape the dark shadow he cast over their legacy.

Quote
NPC Name: Audette de Chauret
Relation to PC: Grandmother
NPC Location: Cimetière de Chauret - Roquefeuil - Richemulot

Describe the NPC: Whereas Gregoire was vilified, Audette was essentially made into a martyr-like figure for the family, regarded by her children and their children as the most faithful wife of all wives. It is widely held by the surviving members of the family that she was murdered by Gregoire in their own bed for condemning his proclivities -- leading Gregoire to die of a broken heart that very night.

A beautiful woman with long silver hair, she was the youngest daughter of the current patriarch of the Venenum family at the time of the Requiem. When the Requiem came and destroyed the family's base of power in Il Aluk, she happened to be on a trip in Martira Bay, and so survived. In the aftermath, with money running out and news of the deaths of those other family members who had by luck avoided the Requiem, she ended up marrying a wealthy merchant name Augustus. Her health began to fail in recent years, eventually leading to her passing away. She lamented the lost glories of the Venenum family daily, filling Somnia's head with tales of past grandeur.

Quote
NPC name: Augustus 'Venenum'
Relation to PC: Father
NPC Location: Martira Bay

A distant father, he never had much time for Somnia. His primary concern has always been gaining more power and influence, more wealth- More. He took the Venenum family name after the marriage, and styles himself as powerful and important. Certainly, the name and his use of it has seemed to open some doors for the man, as his continued success shows. The most attention he ever gave his daughter was briefly encouraging her when she wanted to study at the University of Il Aluk in exile.

Quote
NPC name: Avitus Venenum

A stern and cold eyed man, his advancing age only seemed to make the lines of his face grow harsher.

The patriarch of the family, Avitus and most of the rest of the Venenum family, was in the city of Il Aluk during the Requiem and perished.

Description: Third wife of Silvaine Corbeau, Etiennette shows a degree of disdain for the half Borcan brothers, happy to express such to Basile when alone. Etiennette is the daughter of a minor noble family, House Jeune. Her hair is a silvery blonde akin to that of Silvaines aging hue with blue eyes that remind one of ice. She has an equally cold disposition to all but Lambert who she senses Silvaine would not tolerate rudeness to. She resides in Chateaufaux where she waits on her husband, aware of his constant acts of adultry. She does not speak up however, for fear of losing her place within the family.

Relation to PC: Grandfather
Location: Levkarest
Description: Patriarch of House da Peraga and Grandfather to Basile and Marco. Well past his prime and entering his golden years, Raffiano is nonetheless a ruthless businessman with several enterprises within Borca he tends to. His once silky black hair is now the colour of dried ash and he wears a thin moustache with the grace of a Borcan. Though distant from his grandsons, Raffiano adores them. Having seen the children only when they visited Borca, he is not a constant in their lives but holds them as da Peraga's more than Corbeaus, believing firmly in the adage 'Blood is thicker than water'

Razgriz

Spoiler: show
Name: Nimira Davenport
Relation to PC: Mother
Location: Village of Barovia
Description: Mother of one and widow, Nimira, once by the maiden name of Nimira Antonova, was considered to be the most typical sight within the worn village- A quiet young woman of a large family, many of them dying within their older years and leaving her working intensely as a barmaid within the Blood of Vine. However as humble of an existence that may have been, she came to love an Outlander man- Despite their initial wariness, he gave her warmth, coin, and genuine interest. This man, of both orange hair and strange accent, ended up being the father of Razgriz himself, James Davenport, before he inevitably passed. An adventurer of his kind had his days limited, but not before he established a decent, quiet home with his newfound wife and had his son. Nimira had long lectured and was quite wary of having a child, and was even more so when Razgriz had retained the Outlander's strange abilities and even worse, innate sorcery. She hid it away as best as she could, and was even somewhat cruel to the boy, but it wasn't in her nature to be so; She often apologized and was just simply worried of losing what they had to childish mistakes.

When James had finally died within an adventuring incident, it not only left her without a father for her child, but without balance to her life- No outside influence, and slowly seeping back into the general superstition of the common Barovian way. Emotionally, she was torn, mentally, she was even further worn down by the trials that life had pushed her- No family outside of her son, half-Outlander, looking far too much like his father. As she grew in age, her mind begun to fray, and more early than expected in her older years had she begun to lose her memory, which is roughly when Razgriz had left the village to begin his own adventuring-- At her great disapproval, as well, but he did not mind. He still takes time to visit the shrewd, smaller Barovian woman of stark black hair and tired eyes, half his height, but each time must remind her of so many things due to her memory loss. It breaks his heart, but he still returns to give her coin, food, and small talk despite her awful words about adventuring and his Outlander tendencies. It is still his mother, after all...

Naël Osterberg (38), Lamordian

Quote
Karsten & Francesia Osterberg
Parents
???
Naël's parents eked out a living on a remote stead near Riefa Schwoat, raising sheep for wool, mutton, and milk. They set enough coin aside so that Naël could be sent to Ludendorf to study medicine. Two years into the young man's education, Karsten and Francesia vanished without a trace. A neighboring crofter noted the couple's absence from their usual chores and sounded the alarm. An investigation turned up nothing: their last meal was laid out on the table, and their Winter coats were still on their hooks. A lantern was knocked over, and the door was wide open, as though the occupants of the cottage had departed in a hurry.
Naël inherited the farm and abandoned his studies in order to maintain it. It had been in the Osterberg family for several generations, and he did not want it to fall into ruin.

Quote
Niklaus Osterberg (21)
Adopted Son
Osterberg Stead near Riefa Schwoat, Lamordia
Naël adopted Niklaus from an orphanage when he was six. Brawny and a little slow-witted, he spends most of his time performing shepherd's work in the pastures. When he was younger, he would often claim to have seen 'strangers' on the land. No-one else could verify this claim, even after thorough searches.

Quote
Lüder Osterberg (24)
Adopted Son
Osterberg Stead near Riefa Schwoat, Lamordia
Lüder came from a family of nine children; too many for his parents to feed and clothe. Naël adopted him when he was eight so that he could help on the farm. He grew to be skilled in managing both the herd and the accounts, turning a handsome profit for the family. Naël ceded the deed for the land to Lüder when he came of age. They write to one another regularly.
Lüder is a well-known name in the local wool trade.

Quote
Anjette Osterberg (29)
Daughter-in-Law
Osterberg Stead near Riefa Schwoat, Lamordia
Anjette is Lüder's wife: a stocky, muscular woman. A talented carpenter, she maintains the sheds, barns, and fences on the property. She recently fell pregnant.

Stella Seifert

Quote
NPC name: Ursula Seifert
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Deceased

A beautiful woman with an equally beautiful soul, she was a diamond in the rough. A rarity in the cold, rational land of Lamordia, Ursula was a painter of some small renown, who pursued her interests despite her family and friends telling her it was a "dead end". She regularly cultivated Stella's creative side until she was seven years old, whereupon she developed a wasting sickness and perished.

Quote
NPC name: Dietrich Seifert
Relation to PC: Father
NPC Location: Ludendorf, Lamordia

Dietrich Seifert is owner and proprietor of Seifert Timepieces, Limited. While he was once a kind man with a vast soul (as evidenced by his love for his late wife Ursula), his warmth was snuffed out not long after Ursula passed away. He became a control freak, a man who was insistent upon regulating every piece of his daughter's life. He was obsessed with having her inherit his legacy. When Dietrich thought to try and run for a place on Ludendorf's schultebott, Stella made a point of sabotaging his political ambitions so he would notice her. Furious, he schemed to have her married off; in response, Stella acted hysterical around her suitors, successfully scaring them all away.

With Stella having ran away from home to pursue her flourishing career as a stage magician, Dietrich realizes he went too far in trying to keep her under his thumb. He has turned to the bottle, drinking away his sorrows and misery while his business. He truly wishes nothing more than to reconcile with his estranged daughter and have at least a fraction of the family he once had, again.

Henrietta Voltaire

NPC Name: René Voltaire
Relation to PC: Mother
Location: Port d'Elhour
Description: Twenty years ago there wasn't a soul who had not heard of René Roche. "The Black Pearl of d'Elhour" was invited to perform in the mansions of Souragne's elite, unsurpassed by other dancers. René was at the cusp of international fame, courted by managers of the finest theaters, when her downfall came in the shape of a man, Marcel Voltaire. Handsome, wealthy and dangerous, Marcel was irresistible to the young dancer, and the two soon wed. Difficult pregnancy and the birth of twin daughters, Marisol and Henrietta, were the final nails to the coffin of René's career. To make matters worse, Marcel's fortune was soon replaced by a mountain of debts. Now, impoverished and forgotten, René became a bitter shade of herself, completely focused on making sure Marisol and Henrietta would achieve what she never could - whether they liked it or not.

NPC Name: Marcel Voltaire
Relation to PC: Father
Location: Port d'Elhour
Description: If Marcel wants something, he will usually get it. A handsome man, skilled in the games of chance, he will gleefully win a lord’s fortune in the span of an evening and gamble it away before the sun is up. Although the flames of passion between him and René never died down, their downright hostile relationship is what makes Marcel avoid home life, and focus on his true love - blackjack.

NPC Name: Marisol Voltaire
Relation to PC: Sister
Location: Unknown
Description: While both sisters inherited their mother's artistic talents, Marisol was the only one to share René's ambitions. Very quickly it became apparent that Port d'Elhour was too small for her larger-than-life attitude, and (to nobody's surprise) she left Souragne on the day of her 24th birthday, seduced by the promises of fame and fortune somewhere abroad. However, instead of dancing on the stages of famous theaters in Dementlieu or Richemulot, Marisol found herself confined to the claustrophobic interior of Miner's Merriment in Krofburg, as far from the spotlight of city life as possible, before vanishing with no explanation. Her mysterious disappearance is what prompted Henrietta to leave the relative safety of Port d'Elhour in the search of her sister.

Else Roesdaahl
The Roesdaahl Family

Named for a"rose-valley" in Pommel Duchy. The Roesdaahls are a small merchant family in service to the Chekivs of Pommel Duchy. Their small amount of wealth has allowed the family to live with relative comfort and freedom, in the already independent frontier towns of the Tordenmark. The family boasts a small home in the countryside, as well as an office in Arbora proper.

Edit, note: Details about the childhood disease can be provided on request. It is based on a real-world condition.

Quote
NPC Name: Hakon Roesdaahl
Relation to PC: Father (Deceased)
NPC Location: Outside Arbora, Pommel County
Occupation: Merchant - Livestock, land transportation

First son of the small but comfortable Roesdaahl house, Hakon is not distinguishable from any number of other Vaasan middle class patriarchs. A serious man and a hard worker, he infused every aspect of the Roesdaahl household with a sense of familial duty and strict discipline. Tutors and governesses cycled through the house regularly, few of them ever meeting his high expectations. These days Hakon works closely with his only son, who is preparing to take over the family business.

Edit: Hakon recently died of a heart attack, though some suspected poisoning. He leaves his estate to his eldest son.

Quote
NPC Name: Kamilla Roesdaahl (birth name: Kamilla Pedrikke)
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Outside Arbora, Pommel County
Occupation: Widow

An illness tore through the Pedrikke family at the prime of Kamilla’s life, costing her a father, brother, and sister: and leaving the family without a patriarch to lead the business. To save the family’s tenuous middle class status, Kamilla was quickly married to a widower in the backwater countryside of Pommel Duchy. Kamila was a poor fit for the rustic region and for the family, and withheld herself from her family in grief and arrogance. She suffers still from weakness and nerve damage caused by the disease, a pain which sees her fiercely addicted to opium.

Kamilla spends most of her time curled up in the drug, consumed with grief and reliving old memories of her family’s prime. Something of her disease lingers: one of her children wasted away shortly after birth, and the other, Else, barely survived early childhood.

Quote
NPC Name: Hugo Roesdaahl
Relation to PC: Uncle
NPC Location: Arbora, Pommel County
Occupation: Businessman - gambling

Hugo is the unlucky second son of the Roesdaahl estate, and inheritor of nothing. Possessed of cunning and ruthlessness, he has managed to scrape together a small business of his own using the family name, connections, and experience expanding the Roesdaahl business. His gambling ventures are technically Hakon’s, but Hakon has come to rely on Hugo’s clever business dealings and grudgingly relents a fair amount of power and money to the man--enough that Hugo schemes to split from his brother.

Despite his ruthlessness, Hugo is far more fond of his nieces--but not his nephew--than Hakon or Kamilla. Lessons are often imparted through clever, roundabout ways, without it ever seeming like a lesson. The girls often spent time at his humble home as an escape from the tyranny of their father, though as the sisters were married off only Else continued to visit. It was through Hugo she came to feel comfortable in the outdoors and around animals, and was later able to put those woodsy skills to use.

Quote
NPC Name: Viggo Roesdaahl
Relation to PC: Elder brother
NPC Location: Arbora, Pommel County
Occupation: Eldest son, merchant

There is little to differentiate Viggo from other eldest sons of the sparse middle class. The delicacy of the family’s social status and wealth has been drilled into him from an early age, and it is a duty he takes seriously. He was the first in the family to swear off opium, disgusted with his mother’s indulgence and idleness. He despises her and everything she represents.

Towards his sisters, Viggo is a reflection of his father. Under the surface, however, he loves them and in rare moments betrays this with warmth. His work puts him in occasional contact with Hugo, and though Viggo disapproves of gambling and opium, the two share a grudging respect for each other. Together they supported Else’s decision to join the church--and then opposed her later decision to join the Hazlani church. Privately, Viggo misses all of his sisters who have been married off one by one. He was always protective of and especially close to Else, and has not forgiven her decision to leave the city.

Edit: Viggo has inherited the family business and is now the Roesdaahl patriarch. He has summoned his sister Else back home.

Qillathe Kaldeist
House Mystic

The Kaldeist family of House Mystic has not been liked for as long as Sithicus has been ruled by tyrants. It is unclear when the family's loyalty to the Sithicans began to waver, but Qillathe does not remember a time before the household was allied with the tyrant.

Quote
NPC Name: Maravallon Kaldeist
Relation to PC: Father
NPC Location: Har-thelen
Occupation: Mage, Politskrae

It is not a well-kept secret that Maravallon began working for the Politskrae long ago. A sour and stern man, Maravallon is a distant father and a stern patriarch. Where warmth and joy are unusual in Sithicus, they are myths under his eye. Maravallon sees those around him, including his own family as tools--but like other Sithicans he lacks any ambition or assertiveness to do much with them. He trudges his way through his rotten life, blandly carrying out orders without enthusiasm or conscience.

Before Qillathe's mysterious disappearance from Sithicus, Maravallon completed the arrangement of his daughter's betrothal to another Mystic family. He is annoyed by the disruption of his plans caused by his daughter's disappearance.

Quote
NPC Name: Lisindrela Kaldeist
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Har-thelen
Occupation: Librarian

A tired woman who is by all accounts dead inside. She oozes apathy, even for her own family's affairs, and makes for a fine case study in Sithican dreariness. When she does converse with her husband or only daughter it is only to remind them how poorly their efforts are likely to go. She largely keeps to her books, dutifully archiving--and occasionally eating--the rotted texts.

When informed of her daughter's disappearance, she nodded and returned to her work.
