As a very young child, Vincenzo was enamored with performers of circus acts. He would sneak out after bed time just to watch the local market performers. One day when on a late night excursion, he watched as a wizard was added to the evening performance - and his heart was lost.

The stars in his eyes must have shone bright to the master of ceremonies as the word that man saw was "Recruit". The lad he saw is a recurring audience and has been seen imitating the antics of the performers.

*sent on first job to a wiard's lab to 'liberate' an item
*was caught and spent 5 years in he wizard's confines to see how the bow succeeded in getting in.
*the boy showed how he had learned to speak a command word on an item to defeat the defenses
*to use the item needed talent, which the wizard recognized
*at the end of 5 years the boy started in his training
*his parents had already turned him over to the guild
*because of the kind and fair treatment during his incarceration he gave his loyalty to the wizard

Well, I've Always enjoyed your games, KF, so I am seriously thinking about joining. I'll have to read the summary first, though. :)

Big Tim and Quinn already know each other, right?
Nope.

Dude, it's been since 2017 since I played Big Tim, lol. I have no idea. But if it makes party integration easier, I am all for it. :cool:
Quinn is Scott's Crow God PC.

Very well then. Since I inherited Quinn from Voda Vosa, I did not know.
This game is on the other side of Kulan, no where near Harqual let alone the Strandlands. Of course, Big Tim started his adventuring career on another world, altogether, so anything is possible in the long run. :sneaky:

Cast of Former PCs
Ayse Ajam
(female half-elf, Urban Ranger) – An agent of House Asuras who refused to sign Lord Rande Mateû's contract, as it would conflict with her loyalty to House Asuras. She didn't stay in Bluffside long.

Ginthalas “Gint” Silverleaf (male elf, Rogue) – An elven rogue who was one of the original PCs in the group. He was called away after the first group of PCs investigated the under-cellars under The Winesome Heart (an inn being built in New City).

Gralfinicon “Gralf” Dashtorquezip (male gnome, Fighter) – An ex-slave who was one of the original PCs in the group. He left with Pekko after the 'deal' was struck with the Rising Swords.

Koln Voolsha (male human, Fighter/Martial Rogue) – An avid diver and warrior who was around for a very short period of time during the crisis in New City.

Pekko Lempoinen (male human, Cleric of Ahto) – A cleric of Ahto from the Far North who was one of the original PCs in the group. He left with Gralf on a ship for Pekko's homeland. (This character spent some time as a NPC.)

Phellep (male dragontouched, Beguiler) – A young arcanist who was one of the original PCs in the group. He mysteriously disappeared one night. It is believed that Phelix killed him. (Phellep was @Dog Moon's PC.)

Terger Alela (male human, Rogue) – Terger is a rogue and fixer for The Five, although his loyalty leans more towards the people in the Dark Lanterns, a clandestine spy organization created by The Five to protect Bluffside from its enemies –– any enemies. He first entered the narrative in the floating city of Sordadon. He found his way to New City where he worked alongside Gralf and Pekko to help try to track the renegade sorcerer known as Phelix Del Cannitha (aka Waldo). He was recently called away by the Dark Lanterns for an important mission outside the city that only he can do due to his connections.

Thersean Stormdancer (male Taraean elf, Monk/Cleric) – Thersean is a Taraean elf from Burning Sands region to the south of Bluffside. He is an attache to the the Dragori Empire. He entered the narrative at the Dragori Embassy where he was asked by the Dragori Ambassador to join in the hunt for the renegade sorcerer. He has since gone back to the Dragori Embassy.

Thistle Ravenwood (female wood elf, Paladin (spell-less)/Elf Paragon) – A paladin of Arn who is one of the original PCs in the group. She went into seclusion for a while after the explosion. She recently died in a fight in Sem La Vah against evil creatures known as Dark Reptilians. (This character spent some time as a NPC.)

* I'm 99% ready to say that Relgar's player, willpell, isn't going to come over to EN World and continue playing his PC. I'm pretty sure he would contacted me by now.

Key Current/Former NPCs
Alel Monderand, commander
(male kindred dwarf) – Towermaster of the Bluffside Regulars post at Wyndlasmere House near the Gardens in Old City.

Chalsarda Shantilayla, captain, lady (female nevae) – An up-and-coming member of the Bluffside Elite. She was promoted to captain after the fiasco in New City. She is now the de facto leader of the Bluffside Elite in that district. Shantilayla is her first name and Chalsarda is her family name.

Custodio Vecchi (male human) – A once renown member of the Bluffside Elite. He was believed to become the next lieutenant in New City but after the crisis, he has fallen out of favor with the high ups. However, the people love him still for his bravery and connection to the former PCs, Gralf, Pekko, and Thistle (who many citizens viewed as great heroes). He lost some prestige in their eyes when Gralf and Pekko chose to leave the city. Custodio is a member of the church of the Purifier and is member of the order known as The Vanquishers. (He cannot fight from a hidden position.) His family is well known in the city but they aren't considered nobles, which suits him fine. He was assigned to work with the previous group of PCs (including Big Tim, Relgar, Terger, and Thersean) to find Phelix and bring the sorcerer to justice. He plans to continue working with Big Tim and the new PCs (you guys) to continue the search for the renegade.

Demetrios Zinon Aris Rhodes (male human) – An ex-guard who was disgraced decades ago after his insane father, Tjaard, unleashed an unnatural horror in the Military District. While what happened wasn't Demetrios' fault, he did defend his father when the Bluffside Elite tried to take Tjaard into custody. He was likely dominated by his father, but he was still jailed without a trial for political reasons. He was released into Terger's custody, and when Terger left the city for his new mission, Rhodes went with him.

Elkgrar Ashhand (male hill dwarf) – A dwarven cleric of the Builder whose rich family is from Old City. He worked with the previous PCs to find Phelix. He was recruited for the group by Lady Pomander. He likes the sound of his own voice. He nominated his father for the vacant seat among The Five. (NOTE: His church has called him back to the Temple District.)

Émilienne, lady (female elf) – A powerful tower wizard/cleric of the Seventh Order.

Erwan Patenaude, captain (male human) – The gnome Gralf first meets this captain of the Elite while fighting alongside him and his men versus a basilisk and undead minotaur in New City. He worked with Gralf and the gnome's allies up until the confrontation with the Quartermaster of the Rising Swords. After that, he gave up his position and left the city for parts unknown.

"Garret" (male half-kobold) – An important member of the Bluffside Elite stationed at the Dungeon in New City. He keeps track of all inmates in the prison.

Gervas Rosenberg, master (male human) – the owner of the Golden Lantern Inn.

"The Headman" (male ?) – A man posing as the lead digger in the ruins of Sem La Vah during the events that lead to Thistle's death. He turned out to be a rogue who runs away during a fight with dangerous flying reptilians. He is currently at large and wanted for theft and murder. He is the fourth most wanted person in Bluffside.

Horatio Hollingsworth, lord (male human) – Formerly, lord mayor of Bluffside and one of The Five. He was recently found dead in his home. No one is sure how he died, but all evidence points to his wife who has disappeared.

Kinkar Kinlay (male human) – The owner of Kinley's Outfitters. Relgar met him in the Wizard District before he knew that there was a connection between Kinkar and the renegade sorcerer. It is believed that Kinkar has fled the city.

Niklas (male human) – A member of the Rising Swords who was taken prisoner by Gralf, Pekko, and Terger. He made a deal with those PCs to lead them to the Quartermaster in order to save his neck from the noose. His deal fell threw and he ended up with five years of hard labor.

"Old City" Killer (?) – Unknown serial killer who is leaving bodies all across Old City. No one has been able to divine the killer's identity. This killer is the third most wanted person in the city, but the person's infamy is rising.

Penthesilea (female ?) – The High Priestess of the World Goddess, Mirella. She and her goddess brought "Big Tim" to Kulan from the world of Almagra. While her body is sundered in the process, she doesn't truly die, as she is a Chosen in service to Mirella.

Pennant Hassenforth, master (male human) – The current head cleric and master historian of the Teacher's Library.

Phelix Del Cannitha (male human) – The former manager of The Winsome Heart who went by the name Felix Yoxell while pretending to be Lord Mateû's friend. He set up several ambushes to try to kill the previous group of PCs. It is believed that he is currently hiding somewhere in Old City (it is believed to be near the Gardens). He is the most wanted person in Bluffside right now. The previous PCs nicknamed him "Waldo," after worrying that invoking his name might somehow draw his attention after they fell prey to a set fireball trap that went off in the Silver Lantern Inn.

The Quartermaster (male ?) – This man was/is the head of the Rising Swords in Bluffside, in secret. When Niklas led the former PCs and Captain Patenaude to the hideout of the Rising Swords in the Undercity, The Quartermaster revealed that he knew much about them and the events they were embroiled in. Terger managed to finesse a deal out of the man that gave up the location of where Phelix might be hiding. Only later did Terger learn that he'd been making a deal with the devil. The Quartermaster is an evil man wanted for genocide and other vicious crimes; he is also known as Magnus the Trapmaster. He is a rogue of the worst kind and some believe he is actually a half-fiend. He is the second most wanted person in Bluffside only because Phelix has done so much damage to the city. There are people in the city who would consider him the greater threat to the security of Bluffside and the entire region. It is not known whether or not he's still in the city.

Rande Mateû, lord (male human) – the owner of The Winsome Heart. It was Rande who sent the original note that brings the first group of PCs to his inn in hopes that they can clean out creatures infesting the cellars. It all goes bad for him after he and the heroes are betrayed by his so-called friend, Felix/Phelix. He is currently 'hiding out' from his wife at Russell Cowden's house.

Reginald Oakfirst, lord commander (male human) – The commander of the Bluffside Regulars (and Elites) in every district they have sway in. He was first encountered by the gnome Gralf in the Dungeon in New City and, later on, by the previous group of PCs at the Tribunal in Old City. He set up those heroes in Oakfirst Manor –– a traditional home of his family that he no longer lives in. He is a key figure in the hunt for the renegade and has set up you as the new 'crew' to figure out where Phelix is hiding.

Revel Varian, lord mayor (male human) – A member of The Five who is obsessed with making the Great Teacher the official deity of Bluffside. He is now the interim lord mayor due mainly to his age.

Roose Simonis, lord commander (male human) – Terger's uncle; he is the Lord Commander of the Dark Lanterns. He has been nominated for the vacant spot among The Five, but he quickly declined. His brother, Terger's father, was then nominated.

Russell Cowden, lord (male human) – Former captain of the Dungeon of Bluffside. He has fallen from grace as a member of the Bluffside Regulars. Shantilayla was given his position and titles in New City.

Samantha Pomander, lady (female human) – One of The Five, the rulers of Bluffside. She was the previous group's patron in their hunt for Phelix.

Selwyn Mattick (male human) – A member of the Bluffside Elite and an able tracker. He doesn't say a whole lot and tends to blend into the background. He was quite loyal to Captain Patenaude. He now works for Shantilayla, exclusively (not his idea).

Simissin Elisine Nisselim (male dragori) – The current ambassador to Bluffside from the Dragori Empire.

Traherne Merrick, lord (male human) – A low-level member of the Wizard Council. He is a 'fixer' for the council.

Ubon Metharom (male human) – A fanatical Loyalist cleric under thrall to Phelix Del Cannitha. He is the fifth most wanted person in Bluffside.

William Wellington III, lord (male human) – A dispassionate member of The Five who cares more about archaeology than the day-to-day running of the city.

Wilton Blander, lord (male human) – An egotistical and rude member of The Five.

Yelte Gale (male human) – Minister of Urban Protections.

Known Guilds with Influence
Archaeological Guild:
A powerful guild that has its origins in Bluffside. Its guildhouse is located in Old City, but there are branches in both New City and the Mining District, and it has tons of holdings out in the ruins of Sem La Vah. They scour all of The Northwest, and beyond, for artifacts both mundane and magical. They control the archaeology sites in Bluffside, including much of Sem La Vah (but usually only during the day). The Five have great respect for them.

Criers House: This new guild arose after the disaster in New City. That district is now under a constant cerfew, which has hurt several businesses that carries messages across Bluffside, including both Bluffside Crier and LaRousa's Messengers and Guides. The guild is the "mind-child" of Scribner Thriftmore and Hector LaRoussa who have often been rivals in the past. Now, they work together to make sure the bards, criers, guides, runners, touts, and other people who work for them have a voice and are more protected in the city. The House is located in the Temple District as they weren't allowed to set up in New City. There is a tiny Chapterhouse in Old City as well.

Dark Lanterns: Knowledge of this guild is an open secret among the higher-ups of Bluffside. The people aren't generally aware of them, but there are always rumors and whispers about the 'lanterns at night'. Most believe they are just another group of bards or rogues that like to keep to themselves. (The truth is more clandestine, and you wouldn't know anything about them at all if Big Tim hadn't met and worked alongside Terger. Beyond that, Tim doesn't know much other than Terger told him that his patron wanted the previous heroes to be temporary members while hunting for Phelix. You don't have to make that choice. as that patron has stepped away from the hunt.)

Miners and Burrowers Society: This guild is located primarily in the Mining District (where its guildhouse is located) and controls the licensing of all mines controlled by the city. It has strong ties to the ASC and has almost total control of the mining industry in Bluffside. Its access to vast wealth, including adamantine, makes the guild very influential. There are many dwarves and gnomes in this guild, as well as other races that tend to like the underground. The bulk of the membership is still human, however. Many of the members congregate at the Temple of the Miner in the Skills Quarter of the Undercity. It is considered a second guildhall.

Seafarer's Shanty: This old guild has its origins in Sordadon and the bulk of its membership is made up of sailors who work the docks of that floating port and Cavern Harbor in Undercity. There are very few members in Bluffside proper, although a few ex-members of the Trader's League have been forced to join the Shanty in order to keep their heads above water. The guild is full of rogues and traders that have few qualms about what they buy and sell on their ships. The guild's hose is actually an old ship known as The Shanty, which also acts as a tavern for members only. The Shanty is one of the few open guilds that accepts sorcerers and other 'wildcard' arcanists as members.

Society of Explorers and Adventurers: The SEA is a loose collective of peoples who love exploring and discovering new lands. Most of the rumors that arrive in the city, do so through this guild. Active members include well-to-do traders, travelling bards, and well-known adventurers who've struck it it rich. There is an elite group within the society known as The Explorers (a prestige class). The society isn't centralized so it doesn't have a guildhouse. There is at least one Chapterhouse in each district except the Mining District. The chapter in the Wizard District only allows wizards and other arcane spellcasters who memorize spells. Memembers of this guild often come and go from The Exploratory in the Temple District, as many of them worship The Traveler.

Trader's League: This guild has its roots in New City and was set up soon after founding of the city. New City is where it conducts most of its business and where its guildhouse is located, but the guild has holdings in both the Undercity and Sordadon as well. This guild is for ship captains, merchants, and traders only. Adventurers need not apply. Since the disaster in New City, the league is losing grip on many of its holdings. No one is crying over their losses. Much of the day-to-day activity of the guild has been forced to move to the Undercity.

Other Important Locales/Organizations
Academy of Arcane Arts:
The school of magic located in the Wizard District. Its headmaster is an elderly man named Finus Lomusin.
ASC Ore Squads: These guards work exclusively in the Mining District to protect carts of unrefined Adamantine ore. They answer only to the Adamantine Security Council. Each squad has its own leader but that leader is chosen by the ASC. Failure is not an option for these squads; it can get you sent to the Dungeon.
Asylum, the: Bluffside's final rest for the broken and insane. It is currently overflowing with those affected by the disaster in New City. It is located in that district.
Bluffside Elites: The Elites are those promoted from the Regulars who have proved themselves exceptional. Rarely, new members come in without going through the Regulars. Lord Commander Reginald Oakfirst is the supreme leader of the Elites (and the Regulars). He usually delegates the day-to-day activities to his most trusted captains.
Bluffside Mountain Rangers: The first line of defense in the mountains surrounding Bluffside. Their work rarely brings them into the city. The captain of the rangers is a man named Darius Slade.
Bluffside Regulars: The day-to-day guards and soldiers of Bluffside. The city's charter says they are meant to protect every part of Bluffside, but they don't have much sway in the Mining District and Sordadon and absolutely none in the Wizard District. They tend to be overworked and underpaid, and after the disaster in New City, they are stretched very thin right now. The bulk of them are being tasked to Old City.
Citadel of Phenbras: This is the high-security prison in the Commoners' District of Sordadon where the worst criminals are sent to die (or just suffer). It used to be the old naval academy, and it is a bleak and spartan place to be imprisoned. The Citadel is hard to escape from (magically reinforced) and can hold over 200 prisoners easily. Usually, it holds twice that many.
Dungeon of Bluffside: This labyrinthine prison is in New City, and most of it exists underground. It is a dark and dangerous place and being sent to the Dungeon can be a death sentence, if you don't keep your head down and do your time. A lot of political prisoners are sent to the Dungeon. However, there are worse places to be sent, like the Citadel.
Naval Academy: This military training ground can be found in the Sea District of Sordadon. It is run by Admiral Kale Benocia.
Sectarian Guard: The elite guards of the Wizard District. Its leaders are cloaked in secrecy, and they answer only to the Wizard Council. Fear them in their own district and be wary of them when encountered in Bluffside's other districts.

A Quick Note About Languages
Note that there is isn't a standard 'Common' language for Kanpur, as per the PHB. However, there are two languages that fit that role in The Northwest. The first is called Cliffspeak and its origins are the coastal cities and towns of the region including not only Bluffside, but also Banbridge, Orra, and Saltmarsh to the south, as well as the Kingdom of Tarminan to the north.

The second common language is more widely spoken and originated in the Imperial Lands of Ticinum to the northeast of Bluffside across the Red Mountains. Ticin is one of the oldest languages on the continent and is this world's equivalent to Latin. Thus, Old Ticinum is basically an old Roman-style empire that has seen better days. The language endures but the Imperial Lands aren't what they used to be.

All of the standard racial languages are available with Dwarven, Gnome, and Halfling being spoken the most in Bluffside alongside Cliffspeak. Elven is more often spoken by Bluffside Mountain Rangers, if dealing with humans. Orc is often spoken by sailors and the lowborn.

Note that there are other human regional languages but Cliffspeak and Ticin are the important ones for you guys to know. :)

Efficient Quiver

Ákos is a fit man in his early thirties. Well-groomed, well-spoken and intense. He holds oration in the Temple District evangelizing The Fey, encouraging others to enjoy life, play pranks, love strongly, work passionately and live well. At the same time, he abhors violence and will work long and hard to advise the peaceful resolutions, harmless pranks, going as far as to serve as a go-between in various feuds of the lower classes.
When left alone, he is self-absorbed, focused on his own life, analyzing the knowledge he acquired and not really paying attention to his surroundings. When remembering Anoria, he will smile, looking into the distance.
He always has clean water on himself and whenever possible, he goes to large bodies of water and preaches on the shore.

Titania, Queen of Seelie Court, Lady of the Summer
Titania.jpg

Zefír was born in a Batan clan grazing Hills of Hasna, near the Autumntane Woods. Yet, early in his childhood, there was a raid and part of the clan was killed or taken. He survived the pillaging by hiding into the woods. He already knew basics of survival and somehow he made it. He was lucky not to run into more dangerous denizens (and who knows, maybe he had the help of the fey even then).

Once the clan got back together, it was determined that his father was killed and mother taken. He traveled with a merchant into the great town of Bluffside, to meet with his uncle Zobor who should raise him as per the family tradition. Clansman that brought Zefír left him with the uncle and left. It was soon clear to the young Zefír that Zobor doesn't hold much with the tradition of his clan. He left the child mostly to himself, doing his own business. Zefír was fed and taken care of by an old woman who thought him tribal mores more than his uncle ever did. Eventually, he grew up enough to join Zobor in his expeditions. His role was mostly a distraction in various missions to obtain items or information. As he grew, he learned that Zobor serves a rather old spymaster of the city, running the informant network within it (Solvas Kémcéhje). Following the footsteps of his uncle, growing Zefír entered the service as little more than a messenger boy. He learned, grew cynical, witnessed several police raids, framings, spies being caught. But he had keen ears, knew what was expected and learned. Along the way, he learned his letters and ways of Bhaal his uncle favored. Life was just starting to be interesting when his uncle came home one day and brought him fine black clothes with silvery trim, told him to dress up and took him to see an old man in a mansion. The master spy Patrik Arany himself (or at least that's what Zefír thought at the time) gave him a task. He was to go to the Cloister of Brigias that was suspected of harboring the freed slaves. Specifically, its abbot was suspected of being a highly positioned priest of The Order of the Flame even though the cloister was little more than a library.

Zefír was stripped of his possessions, beaten to an inch of his life and was dragged there in chains. Malnourished, beaten and with a broken manacle still on his wrist he appeared on the cloister doorstep with the prepared story of kidnapping, raid, and slavery. And lucky chain break that enabled him to slip into the night and home in on the lights in the darkness that was the cloister. He was accepted, learned the ways of the library, listened to priests talk and sent whatever he learned back to the city as he was able. In the years time, he started learning to be a priest of The Traveller (even if he maintained the books and read about travels rather than go on them), hoping he will get to see more of the temple and maybe prove there are free slaves around. He easily passed the first year since his budding power in the power of Bhaal enabled him to cast minor spells required by the temple. But as the year progressed and nothing new was discovered he started asking himself if he was forgotten. Is there any point in his sitting in the cold cloister, being bored out of his wits. He grew slower, weaker and with nothing to do but read in the library, he did it. At first, he despised himself for the weakness and weakening of purpose. But he also started despising his uncle who forgot about him. He resented the old master that sent him here without any further word or ways to advance.

Finally, the resentment grew into full-fledged hate when he saw a group of men, barely out of boyhood he remembered from the streets, finely dressed, playing the part of some noble group and going for a rich traveler, maybe a merchant who crossed someone he shouldn't have. The boys were far advanced from where they were before and one of them was a full priest of Bhaal. And he, Zefír, their senior by at least 5 years was sitting here, reading books and cleaning the halls. He grew bitter, reclusive and people in the temple started avoiding him. He was cold and unpleasant, even rude. His sources of information dried up and he started going out into the open. He was warned more than once that it was dangerous outside. But there was nothing for him inside. And nothing for him outside. His former 'friends' within the cloister grew in the power of their priesthoods, mostly Travellers and The Great Teacher. And he still had no idea if any of Order of the Flame clergy even visited the place.

His favorite spot was a high cliff overlooking the small lake in the hills. He could contemplate in peace the way he could kill himself. Or kill anyone and everyone at the cloister. Or the teachings of various gods he learned in the library. As time passed, he accepted he will never be called back. He will never be brave enough to kill himself. And he (now that he thought about it) even enjoyed quiet evenings with his books. The life outside was meaningless when everything he could think of, he could read about.

Until such time he spotted maiden bathing in the lake. It had to be one of the priestesses, but he couldn't recognize her from the above. It could have been one of the local girls, but they never left their clans without an escort and he couldn't see anyone else. Driven by curiosity, he went down to the water and was surprised there was no trace of the girl. He shrugged and left. But this repeated two more times over the course of the summer so he decided to make an ambush. He found the place to wait unseen, much closer to the shore. And he was rewarded by his patience, the seventh summer since his arrival. The girl was beautiful, alone and free. He didn't recognize her as any of the priestesses or travelers and humans could barely enjoy the cold water of the spring lake. He waited until she came out and dressed before making himself discreetly known. In this, his former training came useful, he could boldly lie that he just arrived (even if his young body felt the difference) and asked her if she needed help or an escort. And he kept his bitterness and rudeness in check. She introduced herself as Anoria and they spoke for several minutes before she said she had to go away. Zefír was smitten. He essentially begged to see her again if she came this way again. They met several times that summer and his growing knowledge identified her at some point as one of the fey. But at that point, there was nothing that would keep him from her. As the leaves grew yellow their meetings came more often and they truly fell in love. At some point, she heard the full story of his life and in telling it, he broke free of the shackles of the past. In turn, he learned she was from the Seelie Court, stuck on this plane waiting for a gate to open back as she lacked the power to open it herself.

One day, after especially large caravan arrived at the pass, Zefír was busy providing for, cleaning and healing the men and the beasts that arrived along with several others. Thus, he was late to the meeting. And when he approached, he saw blood traces and heard harsh laughter of crude men. Fearing for his love, he rushed forward and found her bleeding, but not seriously hurt, held by two men and two others wrestling with the one charmed by her power. Yelling at them to let her go he made a mistake of ignoring the three wrestling. Charm protected the girl, but not the new arrival. Zefír got hit three times in quick succession, seized and thrown into the lake. He didn't even hear Anoria scream.

Cold. Darkness. Pain. His last thoughts were for Anoria rather than a prayer for his soul. And something in the depth answered. It promised salvation for both. But at the price of their closeness. Still, it would mean she would live and not be hurt by those men. Zefír accepted the offer and suddenly, he could breathe. He could move. He could...Eyes blazing with fury, he rocketed toward the surface. So quick was his ascent that he ended up standing at the rock the thugs tossed him down from.

"Release her!" Zefír pointed with his hand and fury flashed forward, green and silver bolt streaked toward the closest thug. Everything stopped as they gaped at the apparition advancing on them. "Release her. Or die." Another bolt. By this time, thugs recovered and went for their weapons. "You're still outnumbered, boy. Run away and let us have our fun."

"I am never outnumbered. The Queen is with me." came the answer, so full of cold fury the thugs, now close enough to look into his eyes, were shaken. The one he hit with the bolt broke and ran for safety. Others, uncertain now looked on. And one more looked into the Eyes of Fury and broke down. "You will leave now or your bones will dance at the bottom of the lake as your souls cry for release." Zefír knelt next to the girl and raised his hand and the gaze. That was the final straw for the thugs and they retreated, looking for their fun elsewhere. Zefír ignored them as he put his powers to help the girl recover. For the first time, he openly called upon The Great Teacher, the one whose teachings freed him from his former life. One that let him enjoy the love and beauty of the world. And The Historian answered. Healing energies went to the girl and her eyes opened. She looked at the boy, now a man. And saw the changes.

"You are alive..." in wonder "...but...the mark...The GATE! The gate is open!" He quickly explained what happened and the price to be paid. Nodding, she accepted the limitation of the pact.

She gave him a ring, her true name and the ritual to call her whenever next to some big body of water. The ritual had its limits and her time would be limited. But years are nothing in the life of immortal fey. And he is still young. And he will NOT be cooped up in the cloister anymore. It is time to see the sights for himself and find a way to The Seelie Court. He took new name Ákos inspired by the barely noticeable sheen visible around him when he uses Queen's powers. And went into town a changed man.

Ákos tries to avoid conflict whenever possible. He is open, gregarious and friendly. He lives his life to the fullest, enjoying the physical contests, wit challenges, jokes...any fun activity. He tries to diffuse the potential conflict situation with words or his powers. But every now and then, the words fail. While his anger is slow to wake, once it does it is terrible indeed. Just as the fey he loves, just as her Queen, his emotion always run strong. And the fury and the magic comes to the fore.
