Cela Calming Heart – Balazaring Chalana Arroy Initiate, 23
Runes: Earth, Life, Harmony
Threat Level **
Traits: Calm, Patient, Diligent, Curious
Cela is a physically delicate but emotionally strong young woman, she has been training and working with Dushi Sone for six years now.
Cela is due to undergo the rites which will make her an acolyte of Chalana Arroy at the next opportunity. She has been Dushi’s best student to date, and Dushi hopes she will be able to take her work over after she passes on.
She is from the Blood Viper clan and has a long standing and delicate association with Garnst the Chaos Tracker. They are the closest each other has to family and she is one of the very few who know his full story. She is able to reach inside and touch his soul like no one else can. This connection has remained neither one thing nor another for as number of years now and is starting to concern her.
Cela gets on very well with two apprentices but Wiliska believes she should be Dushis right hand woman, so there is some friction between the two of them
Wiliska has been with Dushi longer than any of the other current initiates feels she should be Dushis right hand woman, is jealous of Cela. She is the younger daughter of a citadel guard.
She is faithful but does not take the initiative in things. Dushy sees here as a faithful servant to the temple and someone who will be important for years to come but not a potential leader or replacement.
She is a great cook and enjoys doing most of the cooking in the Lightbringers hall, she is very keen on good diet and believes most grains and breads are bad for the body. Thus she cooks mainly with meats and vegetables and fruits.
She also organises the practical issues of cleaning and repairs around the Lightbringers hall. The truth is the place would not function without her, but she lacks the spark of character to catch Dushis eye.
Yanka is a young friendly redhead, with slight frame and pleasant manner. She is the daughter of a pig farmer, grew up in Trilus.
She is a social climber and party girl, who enjoys a drink at the stuck pig. She is friendly with a number of the Kings citadel guards and enjoys the male attention.
Dushi is disappointed with the attitude she shows to her family who she virtually ignores as she feels she is now above them. Both Dushi and Cela are trying to reign her behaviour in a little both in terms of her family and the her friendships with the guards..
However she is a very effective healer and powerful magician with a strong natural tie to the life rune, Dushi has high hopes for her.
A quiet girl diligent in her studies who has learned to read some of Dushi’s books, and is gaining a wider range of knowledge because of it.
She has developed a friendships with both Quintas and Eleanor, and visits Quintas house often. She borrows books and talks in depth philosophically with Quintas and as such is on the process of becoming illuminated without being aware.
Due to the close friendship with Eleanor, Eleanor has shared large parts of her back-story and Inari hasn’ t told too many of the other healers yet.
These are really colour characters but may be used to create ways in to plots with Quintas, Elenaor or Garnst or to introduce smaller character sub plots and complications. Such as
- Two citadel warriors start a vicious fight over Yanka which she had encouraged, PC’s have to calm it down and then decide who inform about it.
- Wiliska walks out on the cult in a sulk and players are sent to persuade her to return.
- Yanka publicly embarrasses her father in the stuck pig tavern with, players witness and can respond.
- PC’s asked to escort junior healer to clan, all kinds of stuff could happen.
- Drunk Citadel Warrior hits on Inari in the stuck pig, he refuses to get that she is not interested , a scuffle then breaks out when Quintas intervenes and is knocked to the floor.
- Cela develops a friendship with a PC, who will then have to deal with a slightly unhinged Garnst as a consequence.
