Julia Zwhagger

By:

Julia went from riches to rags…

Special Equipment:

She carries nothing unique. Just an old, wooden staff and traveling bag.

Appearance:

Julia is very short, standing at about 5’2. She’s is twenty-four years old. Julia has long blonde hair and light brown eyes. She is very thin. When traveling, Julia wears a man’s tunic, breeches, and boots. Everything is very big on her, she ties string around her clothes to keep them on. When she’s not traveling, she wears a simple pink dress that has low neckline and peasant sleeves. When working, she wears an ugly brown dress.

Background:

Julia was born to very wealthy parents. Unfortunately, her parents considered Julia a mistake. They barely paid the girl any attention, but out of parental obligation, they showered Julia with many presents. Growing up, Julia was a spiteful child. She was mean to everyone that crossed her path and cared nothing for the mishaps of others.

One day, a group of thieves accidentally murdered her parents while trying to rob them. She gave her parents a beautiful funeral and went through mourning like a loving daughter, though in actuality, she didn’t feel all that sad.

Naturally, Julia inherited her parent’s fortunate.

Soon after, Julia met a wealthy young man and fell deeply in love with him. They married and lived pretty happily for a while. One day, the young man had gotten terribly drunk with some friends. At some point, he decided that it would be very funny to march naked down the street while singing. Predictably, he was arrested. It was then discovered that young man had a number debts that he could not pay because he had acquired a number of gambling debts and he had squandered Julia’s inheritance money. Julia divorced him and he has remained in jail since then.

Without a penny to her name and heartbroken, Julia was forced to sell many of her expensive possessions. It was a hard thing for Julia to do, and it took her a long time to get use to living like a commoner. After taking what money she earned from selling her things, she decided to learn magic and travel. Julia’s travels were uneventful for the most part. But she did meet a group of thieves that took her in for a while. During her time spent with them, Julia became a little nicer towards people.

Finally, she decided to settle down one day and took a job as a waitress in a local tavern. She is a terrible waitress, but she hears many rumors and secrets. Julia has all the latest gossip and is the prime source for all the news happening around the world.

She is a weak fighter and an inept magic user, as she had to teach herself. The majority of the time, her spells are weak or don’t work at all. But whenever her life is in immediate danger, she’s unable to escape, and all her comrades are fallen, she is able to cast powerful spells.


Roleplaying Notes:

It is of interest to note that Julia is very spoiled because of her upbringing and she used to having everything her way. She is prone to whining, temper tantrums, and short bouts of depression. She’s also selfish. Julia won’t do anything for anyone unless she’s getting something in return.

Mmmmmmm, Perfect in that shes weak, annoying, arrogant and childish - Just like a great character should be! :D

Loved ones accidentally murdered by thieves is slightly cliche in my books, but all in all, not too bad.

Order of the Moonbeard

       By: valadaar

Among the assortment of organized criminals who live in the great city, few command greater fear the Moonbeard Order.

They of course do not call themselves that, but have earned the moniker from their fashion of dying their large beards with lye to produce a distinctive crescent shape running from earlobe to earlobe. This is meant as a taunt for their enemies, for it clearly outlines their throats.

They also wear garb similar to the northern tribesman, carefully tooled leather and showing multiple, colourful glyphs.

They are feared due to the intense discipline that their group maintains, due to their origins as a warrior-sect.

They serve as paid thugs, enforcers and assassins within the city, with the client simply ordering a service from the organization, not hiring an individual. Apart from making the request and providing payment in full in advance, the order completes the assignment themselves.

Their order has many moles through the organizations of the city, and more than a couple of nobles. As such, no organized move has been made against them since their chief activity is directed against other members of the crime world. It is said that their services have been useful for those in power as well, further protecting them from persecution.

Their religion holds that their time in this world is vanishingly brief, and largely unimportant except as training for the Great Battle.

The order is very utilitarian with weapons choice - they simply use the tool needed for the occasion, though not without having trained extensively with it beforehand. Daggers, garrottes, swords, bows, battle axes, polearms, wagons, even siege engines have been used to carry out their contracts.
