Niral Depsin


Madman, prophet, political radical, and terrorist are all words use to describe this Elysian, the man who speaks of manifest complexity.


Niral is a typical Elysian; slightly shorter and stockier than his Terran ancestors, shaped by the marginally higher gravity of his pelagic homeworld, his skin done in shades of bronze and copper. His hair is a muddy shade of brown, cut short and trim, his face clean-shaven and blandly pleasant, with plain brown eyes gazing out at the world placidly. Even at his most animated, he seems eminently forgettable, a person rendered to fill the role of the average.

A scientist by profession, he often dresses the part, in relatively formal attire due to his regular presentations - or as detractors prefer to call them,

Roleplaying Notes

Niral truly believes his doctrine; that the universe came into being from empty void, and from there has been evolving into ever more complex shapes because complexity, more than anything else, is the destiny of everything. Fromvoid, to primal plasma, to condensing gas and dust, to eventually form stars, galaxies, and planets. Chemical structure, going from simple chains to complex molecular compounds, and from there to life, and onward to the birth of intelligent life. From this point, he contends, it is the duty of intelligent life to seed the cosmos with more life, more intelligence, until a web of sentience spans the stars to birth the next stage of complexity in the cosmos; and onward, ever greater, toward a state of infinite complexity from which something new will be born. He doesn’t know what; the state is too distant for him to envision it. God, perhaps. Or a new universe, fresh for birth of still more complexity. Or both, or neither. It isn’t important to him; only the growth in the now concerns him, and he can speak for hours on end about it, about the duty and destiny of humanity as an intelligent race.

the dead mechent of death

       By: celticring

To Dougles Nye money is power, a powerful wizard only newly into lich-hood

Originally the son of servants to a noble family, yet he found that life humiliating. "How could anyone stand to serve another?" he often wondered. His father, was a greedy man who offered an explanation one day “It’s all for the coin, every demanding, humiliating thing. It’s for the coin, boy."

So when Dougles began developing the potential for magic, he found a way out of a life of servitude. Learning magic though stolen books, he made his escape. Taking the all the possessions of the lord’s vaults with him. He set out to gain as much money as possible.

His gifts for magic allowed him many advantages other merchants could only dream of. Capitalized on the use of deviation magic, allowing him to always having what the city he is in needs most, whether that is wheat or weapons, poison or drug doesn’t matter to him.

Some would say he follows war, disease, famine, and political strife like a vulture looking for a nice carcass to claim. What they don’t know is he has a hand in the conflict he supposedly follows. Assassinating ruler to incite wars, casting spells that decimating crops, acting as an information broker to both sides in a conflict. Dougles is known as a man who can get what you need to some, to other a monster who capitalizes on the suffering of others.

The lich know as Dougles Nye, prefers the title ”The Merchant of Death” for that shows just how much power money has earned him.
