Corina Archerous

By:

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

Appearance
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.

History/Background
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
Staff.
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?

5/5

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.

Which way is he going?

       By: Murometz

Molk Peruda is encountered by the PCs on the second day of their journey west from the salt-choked port of Quyn, as they prepare to explore the jungle.

He appears a gaunt, wolfish man, with matted, dark hair that sprouts from his head in dreadlocks, contrasting with his well-oiled, blue-black, conical beard. His eyes are hidden ebon shards beneath thick arching brows, his nose, crooked, long, and reminiscent of a snout. His mouth is a thin, dark line, his teeth unseen even when he parts his lips to speak.

His skin is the color of tallow, surprising perhaps for a renowned jungle guide, yet his natural helm of dreads and the jungle's canopy keeps the sun from bronzing his originally pale flesh. On his back are tattooed three women from the waist up, side-by-side, each resembling the other but of different ages. This is a tattoo of Molk's mother, sister, and daughter. His wife (don't bring her up to him!) was killed by marauding Qullan years ago, and appears as her own tattoo on his broad but sunken chest.

His feet shockingly are turned around 180 degrees at the ankle, facing towards his back! A curse from a pernicious shaman. Molk walks feet backwards (he's used to it) and walks backwards, forwards. This can be very disconcerting and outright creepy to the PCs as he guides them through the rainforest.

Slung from his back is an archer's quarrel of treated wood carved to resemble a stalking leopard, in his hand a re-curved composite bow of horn and sinew, with a pair of vivid, red eyes, each one painted on the opposite side of the hand-grip. In a leather sheath at his belt, hangs a falchion, its pommel adorned with a curved bird's head and beak.
