After a long absence from the Citadel, I have decided to become an active contributor once again. With that preamble out of the way, I'd like to solicit some advice from some of our longtime resident authors here with regard to the NPC that I'm intending to develop and post here.
I'm afraid that this particular project of mine entails me utilizing an old cliched trope, namely that of the misunderstood monster. To be specific, the idea I have involves a great white shark that is suddely endowed with prodigious intellectual abilities due to a magical or alchemical disaster. Gradually developing an identity of his own, he soons finds himself horrified by the ecological damage inflicted on the ocean's marine life by unrestricted fishing on the part of humans. Utilizing his genius level intelligence, he seeks to alter the collective intellectual levels of the other white sharks in the area, determined to mount an active resistance against the mercenary humans who compete with his species for the bounty of the ocean. To this end, he sometimes serves malovelant oceanic terrors such as Ma-O in order to gain the assistance of such beings .
To put it simply, is this something that most of you would consider a viable idea? Or is it as absurd as it sounds? Thanks in advance.
