Julia Weisz

Quote
Name: Lea Weisz
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Teufeldorf
Occupation: Seamstress
Description of the NPC (less than 100 words): Julia knows very little of her mother aside from the fact that she vehemently supports Ardonk Szerieza and the rebellion. Though she never did take up arms, she has supported through other means, taking in strangers to her home and hiding them, sending whatever supplies and provisions she could spare to Castle Hunadora, and other such practices. Whenever the subject of Julia's birth was broached, her mother would find some excuse to clam up. After many attempts, Julia gave up asking. As her mother has kept to their Gundarakite traditions and customs, Julia is left to assume that she is the product of either rape, or some trickery by the foul vistani man who is her father. The seedy truth is that her mother willingly and knowingly bed the vistani man whom she had become infatuated with in her youth. A secret she has done well to bury. A shame upon herself and her people.

Quote
Name: Pal Sitari
Relation to PC: Father
NPC Location: Wandering the Mists
Occupation: Horse Handler
Description of the NPC (less than 100 words): Pal Sitari is a vistani of the Equaar tribe. His deep connection with animals, particularly horses, has lead him to become one of his tribes horse handlers. While travelling through Barovia, he met Julia's mother, a very young woman at the time. He seduced her easily, as she was barely more than a girl, and the pair laid together on his last night in Teufeldorf. She bore him a daughter that he would never know. It is likely he still does not know as he wanders the mists with his tribe.

Quote
Name: Anton Czapek
Relation to PC: Mentor
NPC Location: Teufeldorf (Deceased)
Occupation: Traveler and adventurer (Retired)
Description of the NPC (less than 100 words): A whithered old man who spent many years travelling and adventuring. He was an uncommon man among the Gundarakite people. In his youth he worked farms and kept to the traditions of his people. Around the age of 30, he struck out to explore the land and it's people. In his travels, he learned of the Divinity of Mankind which he studied for some time. Around the age of 60, he returned home to find his country had been taken over by the forces fo Barovia and Invidia. Having little fight left in him, he kept to a quiet life of solitude within the city of Teufeldorf. The neighbors and children of the area regarded him as strange and reclusive. He lived a simple life adhering to the teachings he had learned abroad and admiring the many artifacts he had collected over the years. One day, a wild young woman stole into his home and tried to make off with one of those artifacts, a scroll case that was intricately adorned with gold and silver. He caught her, raised the guard, and upon hearing that she would lose a hand, took her in to begin teaching her a better way of living. He worked with Julia daily until the time of his passing from natural causes around the age of 80. While he could not impart all of his wisdom upon her, she regards him very highly to this day.

~ GENERATION I ~
Quote

Name: Ulrich Armbrüster I (NPC; Grandfather)
Status: Alive
NPC Location: Falkovnia
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): The current symbolic patriarch of Haus Armbrüster, he is in his current state very old and venerable. A fair chunk of the family's finances go towards keeping him alive and healthy. Doctors are surprised he has lived to such age. In his younger years he has proven quite the capable soldier. But he has now grown into a man wishing for his death. As his body has become useless he is no longer the soldier he used to be. Instead he is in a way cursed to observe his great lineage and endure all of its hardship. Ulrich has lost many sons and daughters to his enemies, and has had the misfortune of burying many of his grandchildren. Ulrich bitterly hates the Darkonians the most who have taken many of his children and his grandchild Ulrich II who served as his name sake and legacy.

Quote

Name: Madleen Armbrüster (NPC; Mother)
Status: Alive
NPC Location: Falkovnia
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Wife to Hauke, Madleen is a very proud wizardess that serves in the Ministry of the Arcane. Perhaps her greatest regret is that her only daughter chose to enroll in the military rather than following a tradition she wished to begin to mark her own familial legacy. Despite this, Madleen has worked hard to arrange marriages between Ministry women and military men in her family. Madleen considers the marriage of Krauzer and Anja (PC) to be one of her greatest successes towards her family goals. Prideful but intelligent in her own right; Madleen serves as a faithful companion to Hauke.

NPC Location: Falkovnia
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Kaspar is one of the few siblings of Hauke that survived into his adult years. A very capable swordsman known for his skill with a messer blade. Kaspar has had a hand in training all of the young Armbrüster men including Hauke's sons. Despite his swordsman ship his ability to command has been lacking. Forever living in the shadow of his elder brother Hauke yet despite this he is content with his position.

Status: Alive
NPC Location: Falkovnia
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): The wife of Kaspar, Stella served the Falkovnian military for many years in the Ministry of Intelligence before she was forced into retirement when a powder keg took her leg. It's a tale that she never ceases to talk about. If she can find an opportunity to explain how she got a wooden leg; she'll tell you. Needless to say she was never the same after the incident had instead been resigned to administrative work for Falkovnia's armies.
