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.

PC Name: Mirabel Taltos

Quote
NPC Name: Stefania Taltos
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Lives in a small house on the outskirts of Krezk, currently missing, presumed dead.

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): A middle aged woman with long, dark hair and brown eyes, she has a strength to her that her growing age hasn't diminished. She works as a tailor, and never got along well with her only child. They would often have arguments over Mirabel's propensity to vanish the whole day and return covered in mud, or with a black eye and bloodied nose from getting in fights. 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.

PC Name: Ingrid Voll

Quote
NPC Name: Elya Voll
Relation to PC: Daughter
NPC Location: Radiant Tower, Lekar, Falkovnia

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Eighteen years old, Elya is a young and patriotic Falkovnian ready to die for her country. She is blonde, striking, and fiercely logical.

Elya is supported by her mother, who sends her monies and letters every week. Even so, Elya has not forgiven her mother for deserting Falkovnia, taking every opportunity to prove herself a true daughter of the Hawk. She has a dog named Wilhelm.

PC Name: Seneca Laelithar

Quote
NPC Name: Ardmor Laelithar
Relation to PC: Father
NPC Location: Darkon, The Mistlands, Neblus

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): A strong and prideful elven man, although harsh at time, he always means well. Has long dark hair, with greenish grey eyes. Both tall and muscular in build, due to many years of harsh labor, as well from being a sort of retired monster hunter.

Quote
NPC Name: Uulia Laelithar
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Darkon, The Mistlands, Neblus

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): A deeply spiritual elven woman, riddled with both wisdom and superstition equally. Has long dark hair and violet eyes, her build is tall but slim. Taught all of her family members about the arcane. Adores her children more than anything else in the world.

Quote
NPC Name: Sereya Laelithar
Relation to PC: Sister (Presumed dead or missing)
NPC Location: Formerly Darkon, the Mistlands, Neblus.

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): The very opposite of Seneca; Brash, wild, outgoing, and sporting incredible physical prowess. Looks a lot like her brother, with dark long hair and violet eyes, only a lot physically stronger in appearance than him. She vanished during a winter solstice several years ago, and has never been seen since then.

PC Name: Stoian Stanciu

Quote
NPC Name: Ioana Stanciu
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Deceased, buried near Krezk

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Passed away when Stoian was still an infant. A loving and caring mother who was denied the opportunity of raising her child due to the swift and merciless hand of death.

Quote
NPC Name: Matei Stanciu
Relation to PC: Father
NPC Location: A rundown small house in the seedier parts of Krezk

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. Has never been violent in any stretch towards his son but he never paid any attention to him either. This has made Stoian feel seething hatred towards his father.

Quote
NPC Name: Florin Stanciu
Relation to PC: Uncle
NPC Location: Deceased, buried near Krezk

Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Florin took care of his good-for-nothing brother's son after Stoian's mother passed away. He'd seem emotionally distant at times but nevertheless he cared deeply for Stoian and showed him the ropes in his little general store as well as teaching him the letters. Stoian did a number of odd jobs and menial tasks in his uncle store including offloading and moving stock, cleaning the place, helping with the ledgers, guarding the place and so on.

One night he was murdered by an unknown blade, leaving Stoian with no other choice than to seek a fresh start far away in Vallaki.

PC Name: Eglantine Desrosiers (born 756 BC)

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.
