She is a spitfire of the Court. She is smart, sassy, and well versed. She fights for female rights and being rights and smart planing in the court. Think a young Catherine Hepburn. Her main quirk is that she wears conservative (but pretty) clothing. She may advance the cause of rationality and women's rights, but she will set fashion back a few decades.
Connor and Heather:
Connor is an Urban Paladin, more interested in Law and People than fighting EVIL in a dungeon somewhere. He has been nearly disowned by his church, as he is the Dirty Harry sort of Paladain. But his God still invests him with power, even th
Heather is his sidekick. Being of a clerical magical bend, she is interested more in helping people than in church politics and obligations. The yin and yang team of Connor and Heather are very effective as his pragmatism is balance by her optimism, her enthusiasm and idealism are tempered by his cautious paranoia, his wounds are healed by her, and they are NOT a couple.
A shapeshifting Droppelganger. He is not Evil per say. He just likes meddling in people's lives. He manipulates groups of people, lets say a court, for his own admusement, by impersonating people and occasionally hypnotizing others. Think of him as the first Sims player. He sets situations up, just to see them play our.
He is a thin, nervous sort. You would never think twice about him. He is always trying to do the right thing, getting the world to do it too. He seems to stumble and bumble his way to success. This includes combat. Though he seems twitchy and nervous, he is an excellent fencer. In fact his fearful and kinetic demenor actually, and his partial dodges and avoidances, give him effectively a drunken style that is very, very effective. Think of him being played by a young Rodney McDowell.
A young woman who is the product of the union between a woman and a POWERFUL Earth Elemental. Imagine a human being with all the powers of a green earth elemental. She can manipulate stone and plants, travel great distances by moving through the Earth, and heal. She is the thing of legends, almost a demi-goddess. So why is she living in this little hick village, trying to be a barmaid?
Hiding. Everyone wants a piece of her. She has currently managed to get a stalemate with several of the beings that see her as either a threat or a tool. She is trying to live her own life, thank you very much. She is hiding from those who think they might be able to manipulate or control her. She is also avoiding adventuring types because they are always trying to drag her along. She just wants to be left alone, to tend her gardens, and raise a family.
I see her as Kathy Ireland.
He is a dashing and suave minor functionary. He has no title or lands. He works with the Seneshall procuring ducks and minor supplies. He occasionally travels just to get spices and such. In fact, he often travels with nobles visiting other courts to assist some more major domo in arrangements. He likes travelling because he can be more extravagent on the coin of the Kingdom. Except for that he is very charismatic, he would be a total background character.
He is also the Dark Hand of the King. An agent of great skill and cunning, he inflicts policy (death) on those the King deems, steals what the King needs, and has literally saved the world four times. Sean Connery, eat your heart out.
