    Appearance: In the circles in which she moves, it is a not uncommon assumption that Ysande must surely be a succubus taken human form. She is not, though her flame-red hair - worn in a bewildering array of lengths and styles - and ivory skin indicate that there might just be a certain hint of that blood in her linage. Her features are regal and delicate at the same time, her sapphire eyes as wide and innocent as a doe or as icy and compelling as an empress. Her form is slight and lithe, as slim and elegant as a sylph. She accentuates it with close-fitting, filmy dresses and a subtle dancer's sway in her movement.

    Personality: Ysande is something of an enigma. A life spent in intrigue and deception has taught her to keep her cards close to her chest, and that's precisely what she does. The face she presents to the world is elegant, refined and alluring, self-controlled and self-willed, with no hint of weakness. She is always composed, and always courteous. When she speaks, everybody in the room is sure she is speaking particularly to them, and when she breaks into one of her radiant smiles it is a private and confidential smile meant just for them.

    She seems, in short, like a ray of sunshine in a world of horror and evil. She wades as deeply through the mire as anybody, but the dirt never seems to stick to her.

    This is, as far as she's concerned, the great purpose of her existence - to be a light in the darkness, to bring a flash of inspiration and beauty into lives that might otherwise be quite devoid of hope.

    Background: Ysande was born to a courtesan in the court of a minor demon lord, the result of her dalliance with one of the many Tieflings - most of them distant descendants of the lord himself - who were part of his retinue. As a result, she's always been used to surviving and even thriving amongst the subtle webs of abyssal politics. With natural intelligence, a great musical talent, and extraordinary good looks - the taint of demon blood providing a frisson of the exotic - she was a natural at these games. As she grew up she became a great favorite in court and proved well able to spin some webs of her own.

    She has moved from court to court since she came of age, always in demand as word of her voice and her beauty spread. Demons like to play with mortal toys, and she knew the right games. She also had a natural instinct for the delicate business of judging that moment where the game becomes wearisome and the toy is smashed in a fit of pique. She's no stranger to close shaves, but so far she's always managed to walk the line. In her progress up the precarious and ever-shifting ladder of influence and position in the demonic courts she has certainly made her fair share of enemies, but she's also been adept at making the right allies at the right time. So far she remains one step ahead of anybody who would see her fall.

    Appearance: Kaj is ever-present, a hulking presence behind Ysande's shoulder. He is unsettling to say the least, particularly as he is built like a bear - nearly seven feet tall and broad to match. His skin is a deep purple, almost black, with a scaled patch on one cheek giving his face a strange asymmetry. His eyes are flickering green flames, and a pair of bat wings are folded neatly across his back. His fiendish heritage is thus quite plain, topped off with the gleaming white fangs revealed when he smiles.

    That savage appearance is offset somewhat by the way he presents himself. He dresses in extravagant and luxurious style, always keeping up with the latest fashions of the courts. Likewise, his hair is always neatly combed back from his brow - punctuated by two curved horns - and his beard is always trimmed and oiled. Somehow these accoutrements of sophistication only serve to add to the sinister effect of his appearance.

    Personality: Kaj's manner is detached, laid-back and ironic. He keeps silent most of the time, content to let Ysande do the talking, but he always has a wry observation or a witty quip for any situation.

    He seems, most of the time, entirely unruffled. His bad moods strike like a tropical storm. He can be pushed just so far, serene and sarcastic all the way, but once he is pushed beyond that point his rage is dark and bloody.

    Ysande, it seems, is the only one who escapes both his anger and his sardonic view of the world. He seems somewhat in awe of her, and there's something very funny about the way that this creature, alternately inscrutable or terrifying, seems to turn into a blushing schoolboy with a well-placed word or touch from Ysande.

    Background: Kaj is the son of a minor demon lord. He was never favored - the victim of demonic primogeniture that classes him below his pure-blooded siblings. When Ysande came to the court of his father she found him seething with frustrated ambition. She soon realised, firstly, that he had talents that were being wasted and, secondly, that it would be an easy matter to wrap him around her little finger.

    She did just that, and found to her pleasant surprise that, beyond his immediate usefulness, she rather enjoyed his companionship. He did, at first, display unpleasant signs of jealousy when she took other lovers, but it wasn't too difficult to soothe and cajole him out of that. There's still the occasional flare, but she's sure he's under control.

    When she moved on from that court, she took Kaj with her. He wanted to come, swayed by her promises that a better life awaited him elsewhere - and indeed, she believes it. His father, meanwhile, was happy for her to take him, glad to have him out of his hair and perhaps a little buoyed by her flattering assurances that by the next time he saw the boy he would be worthy to call himself his father's son.

    Background

    He was born William of Kalesh, Only son of Cormand, a minor lord of the deserts of Kalesh. His mother was killed when he was young, caught trying to smuggle him away from his father, though some say she is still alive in the dungeons, being tortured endlessly for daring to go against a Lord.

    Cormand info

    Cormand, fiendish a human from the abyss, and one of the consorts of the Succubus Lady Love seems to be deep under her sway, but perceptions can be deceptive. His domain, an area of deserts the size and shape of the Sahara is poor in souls but rich in ores, even of the rarest kind. Still, Kalesh is considered the weakest of the ordered domains and Cormand, lacking a reserve of soul-components to fuel his epic spells that comes close to most others of the spellcasting Lords is wise to ally himself closely to those who are stronger than himself. Because of his apparent poverty in Souls few demons follow him, but he holds great powers over the undead.
    Of his two epic apprentices only Ilva remains, but her wereabouts are unknown.


    William's early life was spent being trained in the arts of warfare, so that he could take his fathers place one day. Though he showed minor skills in magic (A side=effect of his fathers fiendish heritage, and perhaps a proving of the rumours that his mother was a descendant of ancient dragons), his father disdained having a magic-user for his only son, wanting to raise a Warlord. And so he did, training William in the ways of the Black-Guard.
    But William was NOT his fathers son, and kept feeling that something was wrong. Still, this was the only life he had ever known, and as such, could not conceive of anything better. Until he met HER.

    She was everything he could ever want... Beautiful, smart, passionate.. and above all, kind (Not something one comes across often in this world). She was too good to be true, but she WAS true. And she was his, as much as he was hers. The two of them shared two years together and then she became pregnant. This was when Lord Cormand decided it had gone to far. He would not have his son taken by some common girl. Cormand stole their baby and had her drawn and quartered in front of William.
    Thinking that both his love and his child were lost to him, William became withdrawn and cruel - Exactly what his father had hoped for. But when he found out that the child was still alive, a new hope sprang into his heart, and - renouncing his father and his evil ways - he stole the child back and fled his fathers land, taking shelther in one of the many monasteries
    that dotted the lands. He stay there for a year, recovering and taking care of his child, learning to control his rage and his anger from the monks.

    That is also where he was found by the Knights of Shadow, and approached by an old monk who told him that he could teach him how to get back at his father, and to help others like himself.. his mother.. his wife.. and to, maybe, one day, make the world a better place for his child. Agreeing, William took a new name.. Windwalker, and reluctantly left his child to be
    raised by the monks, while he set out with the old man to train, and.. a year later.. He was given the rank and title of a Knight of Shadow, and released into the world, to help spread good however he could (without being captured or killed, preferably).

    Knights of Shadow

    The Knights of Shadow are an order of holy men who dedicate their lives to keeping Good people as seperated from the true darkness from the world as possible. They do this by placing their own souls and bodies between the innocents and the evil. As the Shadow stands between light and darkness, so do the Knights of Shadow. They are a secretive organization - Akin to a cult in more 'normal' worlds, that hide their members across the lands, to avoid discovery and eradication. They are one of the few (If not perhaps the last) organizations of Good left in the lands. To help avoid detection, many Knights of Shadow have given up the paladins traditional weaponry and armour and follow the Monk's path.


    Personality

    Sir Windwalker (William to his peers) is steadfastly dedicated to Good, whether it be through Acts of kindness, Eradication of Evil, or whatever. He is a firm believer in 'doing the right thing', even when it's not always the smart thing. (Though that does not, as some have wrongly guessed, stem from a lack of intelligence, merely a belief that if it's the right thing
    to do, it's probably worth it).

    William is not your standard 'stick up the rear' Holy Warrior, and is dedicated to the Spirit of law and Goodness rather than the specific innuendo's of it. As a Shadow Knight, he believes in the greater good, though not to the point of overwriting individual freedoms. There is a very fine line that must be walked between doing what you think is right for everyone, and taking away their freedom to decide that themselves.

    The Knights of Shadow believe that by placing themselves closer to the darkness, they keep everyone else safer, and they do the things that the really good people shouldn't have to. Sometimes, if the knight is not pure enough, this can lead to a degradation of character, and some knights have been known to cross too far into the shadows, loosing themselves. It's tough to maintain your righteousness when you're constantly in contact with such
    vileness, but William has managed to do so... Thus far.

    Intelligence is the capacity to understand old Ideas.
    Imagination is the ability to come up with New Ideas.

    This isn't evil! You're just a bunch of NERDS!

    Personality: Canthan seeks to increase his power and open a portal to the far realm. Quite meticulous he is a planner and dislikes being harried. He has no qualms about who he works with as long as they do not prevent him from his ultimate goal. He sees the lords and their allies as a stumbling block in his plans as seeks to undermine their power base by pitting them against each other.

    Background: It was not too long ago. It came to me in a dream. I can only describe it as a presence for my mind could not comprehend its entirety. I was consumed and reshaped with the knowledge I now carry. It gave me knowledge and whispered secrets in my ear, secrets of power. I can hear it now, on the wind, there, feast upon the desecrated, it says.

    It bade me seek one of its servitors, an ancient aboleth in the husk of a ruined civilization. The beast was a wreck, its obsession obvious. It knew I was coming however and was prepared. Though it was the elder, its knowledge concerning the outside was limited. While it instructed me and passed its knowledge onto me I fed it information and sought out relics, instruments, and other items to further our joint studiesThe rotting god is the key I soon learned. Within it is enough power to open a door beyond the veil. I must retrieve and return with the flesh of the rotting god.

    I have to secure aid however, this is not something I am prepared to do alone. I must work within the power structure of the world. Enclave, demon lord, human lord they are all the same. They want my allegiance, I owe allegiance only to myself.. They want my services, well that is another story. My services are always for sale if you can meet the price.

    Hooks:
    1) The rotting god is a font of power that can be tapped and those powers beyond the veil are whispering to Canthan how to do it.
    2) Canthan is determined (obsessed) to conduct his ritual upon the rotting god and increase his power and complete the ritual
    3) He is working with an aboleth, need I say more.

    Background: The Mystic, or the Nameless One as he is sometimes called, is a disiciple of the balance. It all began when he read a book about the gods at the age of 8.
    "Why have the gods gone, Mommy?"
    "The demons took over."

    As he witnessed the corruption and predation of the demons, he realized that something had to be done. But as he studied more, he realized that evil is necessary to balance the good, and that without one, the other cannot survive.

    The balance had been disrupted, however, and our hero set off to restore it. Abandoning his previous name as part of his old life, and fearful of demonic retaliation against those he knew, he became the Mystic.

    Appearance: The Mystic wears a chain shirt, a black cape, and a top hat. He carries a short metal walking stick (a heavy mace) which is powerfully enchanted, and a crossbow at his belt. Around his neck hangs an amulet of the Balance: a wooden scale, perfectly balanced. He is a young man of 21, with straight black hair cut short and a goatee.

    Personality: Driven, focused, and dedicated, but has a great sense of humor and a scathing wit.

    Dogma: Reality is an illusion, maintained by the four Great powers: Good, Law, Chaos, and Evil. These powers consistently struggle to reform the world in it's own image, and all of these would be bad. In a perfect good world, nothing could be achieved, and self-sacrifice would rule. A lawful world is a great gray space, a chaotic world eternally changing and random. and an evil world- where we are now.

    As a side note, pseudonatural creatures are outside of this struggle and are good summons for neutral divine casters

    Hooks: Will his traffic with alien creatures drive him insane? Will his identity be discovered?

    Big Ironmaul
    Half-Giant Psychic Warrior 12

    Appearance and Attitude
    Spoiler:

    Standing nearly 8 feet tall and weighing in at just under 400 pounds Big appears to be in his mid to late 20's but even he is unsure of his exact age. His skin has been deeply tanned by a childhood growing up in the sands of the deserts of his ancestral homelands and followed up by an adulthood of fighting on the sands of the arena. His eyes are a deep haunted blue and he typically wears his sandy hair cropped very short to his head. He is heavily scarred from the numerous fights he's been in but is still handsome in an overgrown way. He wears a set of heavy plate made of mithril covered in razor edges and small spikes along the arms and shoulders. The plate is also finely engraved with runes that seem to writhe when the magic of the armor is summoned. His typical armament is an oversized two handed axe. Infrequently he will use a bow based off of an old gnomish design that uses pulleys, steel supports, and various other ways to non-magically increase the pull of the bow into a herculean range.

    He is often brusque with others as he has not had much social experience and this has left him confused with the social niceties that a normal person automatically uses. He's trying to be a better man but he's grown up hard and doesn't expect or plan for life to get any easier anytime soon.


    Background
    Spoiler:

    Sitting on a rotting stump of wood the barkeep was using as a stool Big Ironmaul thought back to the day he had died...

    It had been hot that day in the slave pens outside the gladiator ring and he had been glad to get his hammer and get into the arena. Standing on the baking sand hadn't been much of an improvement but it was more or less clean and open compared to inside the pens. As he heard the crowd begin to howl for the fight to start he mentally began to prepare. He took control of his metabolism to slow blood loss from wounds, the air around him warped to protect him from blows and his mouth stretched out for it's new razor sharp fangs. The door dropped open and he strode into the ring.

    He had known he was a dead man as soon as he entered the arena and saw the dozen men inside. Had known it ever since he had won a wrestling match his master had wanted him to throw and cost his patron a great deal of money. As a slave he had had nothing but his record of perfect fights and not even the threat of death would take that from him.

    Mama Grater, the succubus in charge of the slaves, had always been fond of Big. Had in fact given him his name when he had first gotten to the slave pens and impressed her with his size. After the thrown fight she was the one who had whispered to him, "Trust the tiger's bite."

    Then he had entered the arena and seen the men inside waiting for him. One of the men he noticed was wearing a tiger mask. During that long painful fight as Big crushed and ripped his foes he kept one eye on that man. He never really participated in the fight and the few blows he did make were all easily blocked and soon he was the last one standing. Badly wounded Big had staggered over to the man in the tiger's mask and tackled him to the ground. While they were wrestling he had felt a slash under his ribs and a soothing blackness had fallen over everything.

    He had awoken several hours later half buried in rotten corpses in the Meat Pit, where the bodies of the dead are left till they can be re-animated for labor or to give the ghouls and cannibal human tribes something to eat so they don't venture into the slums. Thus started Big's life of freedom.

    Big had left town after that and moved far from his roots to avoid bumping into any unfriendly familiar faces. He'd taken several jobs as guard, assassin, bodyguard, anything really but had finally ended up in this dump tavern looking for something new. And this pathetic brew certainly wasn't it he mused with a frown at his beer. Slowly standing to his full height of nearly eight feet he grabbed his gear and turned to go. A bleary eyed drunk on a nearby stool stared up at him and whistled, "Damn you sure are BIG ain't ya boy?"

    As Big left the tavern he paused at the door to say over one shoulder, "That's what Mama used to say."

    Appearance
    Appearance: The majority of Aeryk's body is scarred from his torture at the hands of the Demonlord's bruisers. Fire was one of their many tools and it has left him with no hair on his face or head, except for a few oddly palced tuffs between the scars. The burns and scars have left him looking more monster then man. His eyes though remain the window to his former self. They are a faded yellow, but they are keen and would seem to belong to a predator.

    Personality
    Personality: Aeryk is only concerned with his own survival and well being. It was not always this way but this is how he has adapted to the harsh conditions of his world. He is cold and uncompassionate to others, their tribulations are of little concern to him. However, he has a hunger for revenge against those who tortured him and left him as a monstrosity. To survive and exist is the highest priority... He refuses to have his soul used as a chew toy!

    Background
    Background: I am Aeryk Voss... I was a Black Cowl… an assassin in the employment of the Demonlords. For killing who they tell me to kill I myself see another day. The trick is to not draw too much attention, remain faceless and nameless. The Black Cowl’s are traitors in the eyes of many, we turned our back on our mortal brethren and joined the “dark side”. I don’t buy that sorta talk though... when a Demonlord comes calling, you answer. If I had not agreed to join the Black Cowls my soul would’a been tossed to the dretch to squabble over as a play thing.

    The demons have no care for us though… they just use us as pawns. Members rarely work together so we operate as individuals, that suits me fine. Our leader is an unnamed Shadow of a creature maybe a man more then likely a demon. So Shadow contacts me with a target… a vrock captain that is to be eliminated.

    I do it quick, I don’t even think the vulture knew he had it coming. But the tricks on me cause his allies were aware… they probably were the ones that ordered it in the first place. They drag me kicking and screaming to a torture chamber and I am cut, bruised and violated. I keep wondering why they don’t kill me and get it over with. That’s when the Shadow comes in and asks me if I am enjoying my stay. I’ve been framed! Some sort of scape goat... at some point I musta become expendable.

    When they left me alone I manage to slip my bonds and with a lot of luck I escape the place their holding me. So everyman for himself… If the demons don’t get ya something else will. My wounds have healed, but the scars are not going anywhere. Maybe its best they don’t, fuel for my fire I guess. One things for sure I am looking out for number one, but a little revenge would suit me fine.

    Jeran Almistral
    Human Warblade 13

    (Alternate)

    Background

    Jeran's earliest memories are of fear and pain. His family was enslaved by a demon house for an imagined infraction; his parents were both skilled performers, but their talents for music and dance didn't extend to political savvy, and when they performed a certain piece in front of the wrong demon lord, the consequences were severe.

    Jeran's father died mere weeks later, thrust into the house's gladiatorial arena with neither the training nor the temperament to defend himself.

    Jeran's mother lived longer: three years that no doubt seemed an eternity to her; the less said about that the better.

    Jeran's beloved younger brother Ales was trained as a house slave, his slight form only useful for small tasks such as washing dishes and folding linens, at least until his innate abilities at sorcery manifested themselves. The lord of the demon house lost no time in brainwashing the small boy and cultivating him into a valuable servant. Ales took to his training with undisguised relish; no doubt he enjoyed the sudden change from powerless and unvalued to powerful and respected.

    Jeran watched his brother's corruption, unable to intervene; his place was in the house guard, training sunup to sundown with sword and body. Finally he could stand it no longer; he killed his sergeant with his bare hands, stole the man's sword, and tried to assassinate his own brother--an act of mercy, in his own mind. He failed, Ales' own magic turning aside Jeran's blade and blasting him senseless in the bargain. When he awoke he was in the gladiatorial pens, bruised and burned but alive, and unlike his father he had both the skill and temperament necessary for survival. He won, time after time, against single and multiple opponents, cold rage fueling him to spend hour after hour learning to make his sword an extension of his body and will. Finally his chance came and he escaped, leaving a trail of dead and mutilated overseers to the compound gates.

    Fortunately the demon lord didn't consider Jeran an immediate priority, enmeshed as he was in politics and his own amusements, so other than the occasional bounty hunter or demon, sorceror, or other creature/person looking to curry favor with the demon lord, Jeran by and large has not been heavily pursued by his former master.

    Today Jeran is a skilled swordsman and killer; he sometimes feels he is only truly alive in combat, with sharp edges all around and his blood up. Sometimes he even feels bad about that. He shows no mercy to demons and their allies, and only little to others, although he can be generous and kind when the mood strikes him. Jeran is a surprisingly skilled singer and dancer (owing to his early training with his parents), skills which he still strives to improve as his only remaining link to a happier time. Being around other performers, particularly singers and dancers, often brings out his more cheerful, friendly side.

    Jeran has no true long-term goals; for the moment he drifts from place to place. He evinces a cool pragmatism about his employment (and his employers); although he much prefers employment that brings him the opportunity to slay demons, he will consider all sorts of work for which he is suitable.

    Despite the calm and pragmatic personality he adopts in public, the same cold rage over the loss of his family and especially the corruption of his brother still burns in him, waiting for something or someone to give it a target and turn Jeran from a simple hired sword into something much, much more dangerous. Given the chance, Jeran would absolutely make another attempt to assassinate Ales, as long as there was a reasonable chance of success. Any other long-term plans that result in the slaying of demons (ideally) or at least the foiling of their plots is likely to pique his interest as well.


    Appearance
    In appearance, Jeran is a large, well-muscled man, clearly a trained warrior. His body and face are scarred from his training as a demonic guard and his further time as a gladiator; half of his right ear is missing, and a livid scar traces from there down the line of his jaw, leaving a hairless streak through his customary short reddish beard. At some point his nose was broken; the net effect is that although he was once handsome, his current appearance is somewhat less than beautiful. He does have a certain intensity of personality which some people find attractive, although he tends neither to make friends easily nor keep them very long.

    When prepared for combat, Jeran wears unadorned mithral full plate and carries a similarly unblazoned mithral heavy shield. In other circumstances he wears simple traveler's clothing: tunic, trousers, sturdy boots and a warm cloak. While his clothes, armor, and shield are simple, unadorned, and sturdy, his longsword (which he has named Chainbreaker) is elegant and clearly valued: its blade is inlaid with platinum and silver, scabbarded in fine jewel-worked leather, polished to a mirrorlike sheen, and honed to a razor's edge. When he wears it--as he nearly always does--inevitably the sword is the first thing anyone notices about him.

    Chainbreaker is Jaren's most prized possession. It originated as a relatively simple (unenchanted) adamantine longsword--it was, in fact, the sword he took from his sergeant and used to try to assassinate Ales. Later, as he escaped the gladiatorial pits, he managed to overpower a guard who had "inherited" the weapon and reclaim it. Over the years, as Jaren has acquired wealth, he has spent much of it on magical enhancements as well as nonmagical improvements (the metal inlays and jewelled scabbard). Of all the things he owns, only Chainbreaker is irreplaceable in his mind; he equates the blade with his freedom from fear, pain, and slavery, and as such its value to him far outstrips the mere metal and magic from which it is constructed. (Woe betide him if Chainbreaker is ever broken, and any thief would be pursued to the ends of Jaren's power and endurance.)

    Despite his generally workmanlike appearance (sword and scabbard aside), Jeran does have a fair appreciation for the finer things in life. He is fond of a cup of strong coffee in the morning (sometimes sweetened by honey) and, although not an accomplished cook himself, he is appreciative of good food and good drink.
