It would have been simple to merely state that twelve children were sacrificed to create a Frankensteinian monster that looked like an elf and had higher motivations. The extra effort to create, and name the twelve is worthy of more than five flames, but as that is all that I can give, that is what I will give. Very well done!
This is an excellent character. Just finished watching Blue Exrocist, and having a person deliberately serving as a prison for a demon is excellent! It is a great backstory for your sorcerer/warlock characters as well. Maybe even a Paladin? :) Go to Comment
Wow, I love the character. The classical villian, powerful, yet a coward. Likable, and quick to anger, selfish and greedy. the item is astounding, but shouldent he destroy it? You know, so no one can use it against him? Or, is it so that if he destroys it he will revert back to his weak state, and even be consumed by the clock?
I have a question. If Korrney could get enormous powers with the bell, why hasn't he already used it in a town of, say, 2 millions of people? Then he would be like a god. Hasn't this occurred to him or something?
Anyways, a good character, with strong points, and weak points to make him feel real, not some munchkin guy, with powers to blast you into oblivion in the blink of an eye. Strong background, although finding the lost city was almost funny, the way he did it, it's a wonder it wasn't found before. Anyway.
I forgot to mention:
The bell works only once for each person without much risk and work - using it more than once would be coupled with quite some risk - and Korrney was to lazy/cowardly to work on using it another time. As he is written, I doubt he would risk losing what he has for an uncertain gain... Go to Comment
Now, Korrney is greedy - while he will not use the clock again anytime soon, he will preserve it in case he trust himslef enough to give it another go, and raze a more populous city.
So, he's afraid to use it, but well aware of its potential, and unwilling to let it go. Go to Comment
In this culture it is not wise to talk too much good things about anything - especially children,lest some evil spirit steals it. So it is customary to say it is ugly and weak and will surely not survive. Also:

The man who boasts of his wares will get rich."
