Lochlann Ó Corcáin

Quote
Name: Ceat Ó Corcáin
Relation to PC: Father (Raised Lochlann)
NPC Location: Deceased (Stoned to death, remains burned to ash)
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Ceat was a softer man that acted as a young Lochlann's father. Becoming Lochlann's father was a scarring struggle for Ceat because he did not sire Lochlann. This fact lead to Ceat and his wife becoming ridiculed for their behavior. Nevertheless they were tolerated in town and Ceat had made a living working as a Cloudberry farmer in Linde. Ceat was dragged out of his own home when the Church of Belenus' inquisition found his daughter to be guilty of Witchcraft. At this point; the inquisition decided to go after the entire family to rid the taint of the fey upon the Ó Corcáin family.

Quote
Name: Mairéad Ó Corcáin
Relation to PC: Mother
NPC Location: Deceased (Stoned to death, remains burned to ash)
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Mairéad was a free spirit of a wife who like Ceat would be cursed with shame. Mairéad had an affair with a Vistani man that was short lived but would carry her through out the rest of her life by the slander of her fellow villagers, and by Lochlann whose true father was the Vistani visitor. Mairéad was said to be a kind but airheaded woman who was easily amused and excited by the wonders of the world around her. Mairéad was killed after the Inquisition of Belenus dragged her and her husband Ceat out of their home, stoned them to death and burned their remains.

Quote
Name: 'Ratka'
Relation to PC: Father (Biological)
NPC Location: Nomadic; Corvara tribe Location unknown
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Little is known of Ratka beyond his first name. The biological father of Lochlann truly is an enigma that none of the family except Mairéad ever met. Though Mairéad has described him fondly; she never talked too much about him as to not upset Ceat or continue the rumors regarding her family. Ratka is perhaps the only known relative of Lochlann still alive out there.

Quote
Name: Ionait Ó Corcáin
Relation to PC: Older Half-Sister
NPC Location: Deceased (Hands removed, Burned at the stake)
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Ionait was Lochlann's older sister whom like her mother was a free spirit that did as she pleased. This nature of hers would find her trouble however when she made contact with fey of the forests. They taught her witchcraft and she kept it a secret from everyone including her family until one day she got impatient while working in the Cloudberry fields and used magic to try and repair something thinking no one was watching. Unbeknownst to her, the neighbors son was watching and reported her to the inquisition. When the inquisition arrived they found everything: spell books, spell components, and arcane literature. It was all burned and destroyed and Ionait was put to the stake and burned alive. Ionait was the kindest of Lochlann's siblings when it came towards Lochlann. Ionait never minded that they didn't share a father and saw him as family regardless.

Quote
Name: Maolcholm Ó Corcáin
Relation to PC: Younger Half-Brother
NPC Location: Deceased (Murdered by angry villagers)
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Maolcholm was Lochlann's younger half-brother and the two got along, but often times Lochlann was kept at arms length and even sometimes bullied by his brother outright for being different from the others. Maolcholm was incredibly close to Ionait though and would often do his best to be a 'good brother' and protect his sister from the 'horrible nasty fey' of the forest. Maolcholm never lived up to that though, and instead died trying to protect his sister from the inquisitions raid on the home. Maolcholm bought time for Ionait to try and escape but these attempts were futile. Angry villagers demanding immediate justice killed Maolcholm and his brother Malachi in protest of them defending their sister.

Quote
Name: Malachi Ó Corcáin
Relation to PC: Youngest Half-Brother
NPC Location: Deceased (Murdered by angry villagers)
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Malachi was the youngest of the Ó Corcáin family and was very close to his older brother Maolcholm. Malachi was never too close to Ionait or Lochlann; and yet nonetheless he stood by Maolcholm's side even into death as rampaging villagers tore them to pieces with farming utensils. Malachi was a young man who looked forward to participating in his labors on the farm.

Description of the NPC (less than 100 words): An awkward middle aged man with a curious sense of humor, most of his dialogues containing an absurd amount of dad jokes.  He's an athletic man for his age, several flintlocks and a trident on his back at all times.

Quote

Name: Henri Valcourt
Relation to PC: Grandfather, very old
NPC Location: Henri Valcourt's Estate, Mordent
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Henri Valcourt largely keeps to himself and a quiet life in Mordent so much so that many commonly think he is dead.  He recently gave an ultimatum to Godwin Valcourt's branch of the family to do something with the Valcourt name other than wasting away the fortune or be disowned.


Name: Godwin Valcourt
Relation to PC: Father, age 53
NPC Location: Port-a-Lucine
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): Godwin is a schmoozer and a greaseball of a Mordentish man, eager to do what benefits him.  While he does care about his children, he has a tendency to be shortsighted and selfish with his aims and take things which give him instant gratification.  He quite loves parties and any exquisite and exclusive outings, and is eager to spend money—sometimes money he does not have.


Name: Bernadette Valcourt
Relation to PC: Mother, dead
NPC Location: Valcourt family mausoleum, Mordent
Describe the NPC (less than 100 words): A strict, albeit caring, wife and mother, Bernadette died when Cornelius was ten.  Cornelius remembers little about Bernadette beyond her tendency to hold him at too high of a standard.  After her death, Godwin never remarried and he seemed changed for the worse.


There are numerous other children that Godwin has had before the death of his wife, left undefined for now.
