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.

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.

PC Name: Seneca Laelithar

Quote

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

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.
Liss Santraeger - "Life is a song. Don't be scared to sing along."
Eglantine Desrosiers - "A rose is still a rose, even if it has only one petal left."

Dortoga Khatorus

Quote
NPC Name: Eryk Khatorus
Relation to PC: Father
NPC Location: Port-A-Lucine, Dementlieu
Current Age: 124

Notes: Eryk and his family were shamed and exiled for thievery from Corvia thirty years ago. He was forced to shave his long, braided beard and take his wife and daughter away with him. He had grown to be irritable and desolute. He blames his brother for what he has always maintained were false accusations. He has resigned himself to a life of work, squandering much of his earnings on nightly trips to bars.

Describe the NPC: Sereya lives for her children. She had twenty years of genuine, simple, and warm happiness after her marriage and the early years of her marriage but that is past. Her greatest shame is that her children will grow up without access to dwarven teachers or temples. She has insisted that despite living in Dementlieu, her children will learn dwarven and be brought up with stories of dwarven heroes and culture.

Quote
NPC Name: Aevar Khatorus
Relation to PC: Younger Brother
NPC Location: Port-A-Lucine, Dementlieu

Eryk and Sereya never intended on having children, but after a particularly good week, fate had it that decades after Dortoga was born, Sereya became pregnant again. This revitalized Sereya's life- but for Eryk, only magnified his shame as he now had a son who would inherit the name of an exile.

Quote
NPC Name: Alfgeir Krateris (formerly Khatorus)

Relation to PC: Mother (born 726)

Notes: Born in Ste. Ronges to a fisherman, Larissa left Richemulot to escape her father's gambling debts to the local criminal organizations and settled down in Port-a-Lucine. There she found employment in the docks and eventually joined one of the early trading expeditions to Rokushima Táiyoo. Fascinated by the exotic country she became a translator for future Dementlieuse expeditions, but in 750 she was stranded in Rokushima Táiyoo after a shipwreck. Finding shelter among a Vistani camp that had travelled to Rokushima Táiyoo for unknown reasons, she eventually gave birth to a daughter by a Vistani man. Four years later, she was believed to have been killed in a seemingly random attack by Oni.

Severin Marceaux

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.

PC Name: Arséne de l'Hôpital

NPC Name: Héloïse Pascal

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.

PC Name: Arséne de l'Hôpital

NPC Name: Celine Bernoulli

Relation to PC: Adoptive Caregiver

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.

NPC Name: Guy Descartes

Relation to PC: Mentor

NPC Location: Edrigan, Dementlieu

Describe the NPC: An old man with greyed hair, a balding head, and a well-sculpted mustache. He typically wears finer clothing and speaks in a softly toned voice. Guy is an experienced bard, and a talented musician and magician. 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.

Father
Spoiler: show
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.


Mother
Spoiler: show
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.


Brother (oldest)
Spoiler: show
Quote
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.


Sister (oldest)
Spoiler: show
Quote
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.


Brother (second)
Spoiler: show
Quote
PC Name: Claire Artois
NPC Name: Jean-luc
Relation to PC: Older brother (second brother, third child)
NPC Location: Chateau Eau Vive of Damas
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
Spoiler: show
Quote
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.


The Governess
Spoiler: show
Quote
PC Name: Claire Artois
NPC Name: Madame Baudelaire
Relation to PC: Governess
NPC Location: ?
Describe the NPC: An abjurationist and a frequent widower, Madame Baudelaire is a husk of a woman being piloted by the last vestiges of bitterness and grief. 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.


The Uncle
Spoiler: show
Quote
PC Name: Claire Artois
NPC Name: Antoine-François Artois
Relation to PC: Uncle (father's side)
NPC Location: Some Barony in Damas
Describe the NPC: This is the brother of Guy-Jean. While his name is much cooler than his older brother's, Antoine-François is less cool in person. 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.
