Corina Archerous


Corina Archerus is a researcher and a wizard. She is also completely blind.

Human female, age 37. Fair skin, dirty blond hair, fairly average appearance except for her eyes. These are blank white orbs of scar tissue that she makes no attempt to hide.

Corina was blinded when a dry log exploded in the hearth she was watching at her childhood home. She had already been accepted as an apprentice magicker, so she followed that path. Her natural gifts and dogged determination (she is an Archerous after all!) allowed her to complete her basic training. Her natural aptitude for sound has made her quite the accomplished mistress of sound magic.

She can also play a dozen or so instruments: Harp, Flute, Fiddle, Arune Sphere, and others.

Special Equipment
A raven familiar called Sqwack, who serves her in much the same manner as a guide dog. He is usually perched on her shoulder.

Roleplaying Notes
All attempts to restore her sight have so far failed.

This has led her to an almost fanatical interest in sound and sound-based magics. She has written several theses on the nature of sound and has developed a number of quite unique spells that rely on sound for their effect.

Known Expert at sound illusions and all sound based magics.

Is her name a play on the word Cornia?
As part of the city, I could see where she'd be useful as part of a noir type campaign, but their just isn't much here. The write up gives you idea of how she might be useful to a person, but almost nothing of the nuances or surprises that interactions with here might bring. A usable but flavorless character.

Corina is just an Known World name.

Did you miss the link to the Extras character scroll where little background characters are given some notice?

Hey Moon,

Again I felt sorry for ya so I looked up your lowest ranked sub, and here I find you again defending something based on how low you set your own bar. But I will give you a 5 anyway, because I think the sub is okay.

Blind mage that focuses on sound, you really didn't reach out the box for this one. Have you read that story about the dancing wizard?

No. No I haven't.

Nope it was an example character from way back when. It is an extra. She is a background mage to stuff in a bar or mage shot or someplace you need a minor mage. That is why she has so little detail. She is an extra.

Arkths or Ravagers: These are large landbound crablike creatures about the size of Grizzly Bears. They live partially in the astreal plane. Their food is magic. They can sense it at huge distances. Since spells and such are hard to eat (being in motion) and magical places are the equivalent of a sea of krill to them, they are looking for magic stashed in concrete places. Their primary food source is magic items, alchemical potions, and enchantments. They do a pretty good job of mangling/ eating the physical aspect of said items in the process of chowing down. These things will be the bane of dungeons everywhere, as they will slowly eat away much of the treasure (and the magical traps... so it can be advantagous to follow these things). Note: They will attack people with highly magical natures (i.e. high magic powers). They will probably kill the person in the process of sucking out the power.
