Gaspard Gillead, SWADE D'norr Shifter

Post by Gaspard Gillead »

D'norr Shifter (Intended for 12th AAT, if slots left after new/patron players claim places)

Narrative Hook:
The Evil That Men Do. The world of Rifts Earth is exceedingly dangerous, and
there’s no greater threat to survival than that of human beings willing to commit all
manner of violence and atrocities. Your character’s been out there, fghting bandits,
raiders, and the soldiers of would-be warlords and conquerors. Alternately, he
might have been such a person, robbing and hurting others for his own ends until
one day the truth of who he’d become hit him and he decided to make a change.
Joining the Legion is the start of that new journey

HJ Rolls (Keeping two from original build):


Magic & Mysticism: Arcane casters benefit from a variety of spells. Your hero knows one Novice power normally unavailable: Mind Reading

Magic & Mysticism: Choice: 14: Some arcane wielders learn how to use certain spells as almost second nature. Choose one power your hero knows; if she casts it successfully, she automatically gains the raise effect: Mind Reading

Re: Gaspard Gillead, SWADE D'norr Shifter

Post by Gaspard Gillead »

Background

Location: The True Federation of Magic, City of Brass--Offices for the Department of Liberty Security

The commander looked up as Gaspard entered the room, giving a brief nod in response to the salute. "You have the information, Trainee Constable Gillead?"

Gaspard nodded. "Yes, Commander Lichten, my interrogation charm was quite effective. The rebels are hiding out in a small town about 50 miles of Stormspire. Apparently, they have found an area with no nearby Ley Lines, and then managed to set up an illusory mask--it only blocks remote viewing, but that was enough to confound our Clairvoyants. Without traveling there physically, we had no means of locating them before this."

The Commander nodded, pleased. "And he has no idea you were able to glean the location from him?"

"No, sir."

"Good. We'll arrange a fake escape, but make it obvious. He'll run anyplace but there, in order to lead us astray. Of course, only a token force will follow him. Meanwhile, our forces will be able to convene on their hideout."

Gaspard furrowed his brow. "Why not simply hold him until we can act?"

The commander smiled benignly. "Well, Trainee Constable, we know they have an observer here. If we hold him here, he will be presumed compromised. The fake escape scenario will assure them that we've had to resort to less direct approaches. Meanwhile, we can send in the Daemonix and root out this viper's nest that dares to spurn the liberties Lord Dunscom provides them."

Gaspard blinked. "Oh, I doubt that level of force will be required, Sir. I determined there were only a dozen or so actual rebels hiding there; the townsfolk are unaware of the nature of their activities. It should be an easy matter to go in and round them up."

"Hm. Yes. But there are other factors to consider, here, Trainee Constable. We have to send a message." A brief pause, then the commander added, "You and Trainee Constable Heiros have both done quite well on this investigation, and I think it's time you got into the field. I'll send you both along under Officer Siegal. Do as admirably there as you have so far, and I think we'll be losing that 'Trainee' designation. Consult with Siegal as to what sort of support you should bring along. This should give you a good idea of what it takes to maintain the liberties Lord Dunscom gives to us all."

Gaspard quelled his distaste at the notion of working with the bizarre Trimadore Necromancer, Heiros, as the promise of promotion was dangled in front of him. He snapped off a stiff salute and went off to speak with Siegal.

*********

Location: The True Federation of Magic, Outside the village of Bethelridge--a high ridge overlooking the village


Gaspard stood next to Officer Siegal (an experienced Techno-Wizard with a small personal arsenal) and Gaspard's newly bound demon, Proditione (a minor member of its ilk, of course, all that a novitiate Shifter such as Gaspard could control), looking down into the valley, trying to fully comprehend what he was seeing.

As he'd been told, a small group of Daemonix had been sent in. The traitors had come out during the initial attack and had inflicted some damage before being overwhelmed, but the outcome really was inevitable. The last of the traitors had been slain several minutes ago, and the rest of the village was either in a pose of surrender, or attempting to flee.

The Daemonix were relentless, cutting down and slaughtering the cowering villagers. As for those who fled, Heiros and his undead minions were hidden in the copse of trees that filled the one pass out of the far side of the valley, waiting and killing any who came that way. Occasionally, an attempted escapee would come staggering back out of the woods as an animated corpse now joining in the slaughter of their former neighbors.

"Sir, I... I don't understand. Of course the traitors had to be dealt with harshly, but why..." He just gestured at the outdoor abattoir that now occupied the space once held by the village.

Officer Siegal shrugged. "Three reasons, all matters of experience and practicality. First, we cannot be certain that none of the traitors remain among the townsfolk. Secondly, even if all the traitors participated in the actual counterattack, the fact is they've been living among these people for months. It is sophant nature to form bonds with those whom you live and work with every day. I assure you, had we only killed the active traitors, somewhere among the populace would be a friend, a lover, or even a child yet unborn who would someday rise and try to overthrow Lord Dunscom out of some misguided sense of vengeance. And finally, you must understand that we do not all share your own school of magic's facility for commanding otherplanar entities. To employ the Daemonix, we must agree to let them perform their duties as they see fit. This is the price of the liberties Lord Dunscom secures for us all. This is the lesson Commander Lichten wanted you to learn. Do you understand?"

Gaspard reeled under the cold logic put forward by his superior, as Siegal turned back to the valley to observe the operation enter its final phase. "Yes... yes, I see now, what it takes to be part of our Lord's forces. Thank you for educating me." As he spoke, he gave a simple hand-signal, one of a few he'd instructed Proditione on during the initial binding two nights ago. Attack. "And that is why I resign." The last few words were accompanied with a quick gesture and a few brief words that turned the entirety of Officer Siegal's arsenal into a collection of junk. Even as Siegal started to turn, Proditione responded to the signal and leaped forward, surprise allowing the demon to land two quick blows to the neck, severing Siegal's head, which rolled off the cliff down into the thick brush.

Taking a deep breath at the enormity of his action, Gaspard then turned and ran into the mountains, towards the Ley Line he knew was about fifteen miles away. It would be hard travel through the mountains, but he knew he'd have a good thirty minutes' head start, before Heiros would finally be done with the foul business in the valley, and find the body. It would be enough. Gaspard's command of Ley Line travel was more than sufficient to make him almost impossible for the Necromancer to follow.

**********

Location: The True Federation of Magic, City of Brass--Offices for the Department of Liberty Security

Toben Heiros stood before Commander Lichten, trying not to sweat as he gave his report. A complete success in the operation, ruined by that soft-hearted fool, Gaspard. Heiros had used his own magics to consult with the severed head (which had taken far too long for him to find) and learn the truth of the events on the ridge. But by that time, the treasonous oaf had gotten away--a fact for which Commander Lichten's probing questions made it clear that Toben was going to have to bear responsibility.

Finally, after six hours going over every action, decision and outcome the Trainee Constable had taken, Commander Lichten shook his head. I've heard enough. You disgrace yourself with your failure, Toben. Get out of my sight. I will have to determine your fate in the morning."

Toben nodded, but did not return to his quarters. He knew his fate--at best, indentured servitude in Dunscom's fortress; at worst, any number of magical, tortuous deaths meant to extract some use out of those deemed wastes of breath. Instead, he immediately went to the Rifts that served as the gates to the City of Brass, and went through. I will get you for this, Gaspard. I will feast on your heart, traitor.

Gear

Soulguard (Enchanted Signature Item)
Base Item: Cold Iron Headband & Silver Amulet (Value ~400 Cr.)
This item is popular with mages of the Federation of Magic, who often must deal with powerful entities from other planes that seek to sway or even dominate them. It consists of two parts, both of which must be worn to be effective; the first is a band of cold iron that fits snugly around the temples; the second half is a silver amulet, worn on a chain over the heart.
Upgrades:
+2 Spirit to resist Corruption, or against Powers that might control or influence the wielder (puppet, slumber, empathy, etc.). It does not affect Fear checks (unless caused by the fear Power), nor does it apply to Skill-based Tests.
Boost Trait: Spirit (Limitations for Aspect and Self-Only apply, and reduce the casting cost)
May be cast with Greater Boost Trait Modifier.

Bag of Holding (Patron Item) (Bronze, SWADE)
Image
Rare Enchanted Bag
Made for hiding what valuables are contained inside. As a free action, the character can activate the bag's magic and
• Weight: 1 lb.
Magic Features:
• Effect: Dimensional Pocket
• • Activation: A free action is needed to activate access to this function. Until the bag is activated, it is simply an empty, ratty looking (though sturdy) leather pouch. See Detection below.
• • Unless Activated, the pouch itself is usually empty or filled with a few random odds and ends. A canny user might keep a handful of few decoy items in the pouch while not activated to fool casual inspection.
• • Capacity: 50 lbs.
• • Restrictions: Though flexible, the orifice for deposit is only 4"x4", so nothing larger can fit inside the bag of holding. Retrieving an item takes an action. For every 4th item after the first in the bag, the time to grab an item increases by 1 action. 1-4 items: 1 Action 5-8 items: 2 actions, 9-12 items: 3 actions, etc. This can be spread over multiple rounds.
Contains

• Communications Band
• Rift Staff

Detection and Identification: While the Bag of Holding is quite subtle, it is not truly hidden, merely disguised. Therefore the user is warned not to allow it to come under scrutiny by the magically or psychically active.
• A successful use of Detect Arcana will register it as magic, but will not usually reveal its purpose. A raise will reveal it uses Dimensional and Temporal magic, but not how.
• Using the Exalted Detect Arcana Power Modifier will reveal its function with a raise and that it uses Dimensional and Temporal Magic on a success.
• A Shifter using Detect Arcana will reveal it to be using Dimensional and Temporal magic on a Success and determine its function with a raise.
• Similarly a Shifter using Exalted Detect Arcana will automatically determine its function

Proditione (Lesser Demon, Bound Summon, Ties up 2 PPE, 2 Advances)
Proditione, aka "Perdi", is a lesser demon who has a long-term association with Gaspard. Like most of his ilk, he is physically imposing and not very bright. He'd cheerfully eat Gaspard's liver if given half a chance, but the Shifter knows better than to trust him with any sort of opportunity for treachery. His skin is a pallid shade of green-grey, while his armor and shield resemble brass. The hilt of the sword matches his armor, and the blade is pitch-black.
Proditione normally wears a long black cloak that hides his features at first glance, though of course, nothing can conceal his immense size.
He has grown in power during his association with Gaspard, which is one reason he continues to accept long-term (though never indefinite) servitude. Of course, he ultimately seeks Gaspard's soul, and each contract renewal brings another opportunity to corrupt the Shifter. For his own part, Gaspard tends to speak dismissively to the demon, especially when reining him in after some offense (Perdi cannot attack other members of the party, but he can insult, taunt or otherwise undermine them, and sometimes Gaspard has to intervene).
As this is an ongoing relationship, the contract is both formal and long, including a variety of clauses and sub-clauses meant to prevent outright betrayal. Many of these deal with circumstances where Gaspard is rendered unconscious, to ensure that the demon doesn't either wander off or finish him off. Still, in such circumstances, Perdi can roll Common Knowledge to get up to minor mischief (GM's call on what happens, depending on circumstance; possibilities include taking Gaspard someplace 'safe', but otherwise inconvenient, or leaving behind important gear, for instance). Of course, if Gaspard dies, all bets are off--Perdi would be free to flee the rest of the party and rampage through the mortal realm until brought to heel.
When Gaspard originally betrayed his masters in the City of Brass, Proditione thought it was a delightful turn of events. The demon is less happy with the affiliation with the Tomorrow Legion. Still, Proditione is pragmatic, and willing to try to make the best of it. The demon lives for combat, and at least that particular urge is readily scratched--arguably, much more than when Gaspard was a mere Constable in the City of Brass.
In addition to his standard demonic gear, Proditione wields a toxic sword they acquired while battling cultists.

Attributes: Agility d6, Smarts d4, Spirit d6, Strength d10, Vigor d10
Skills: Athletics d8, Common Knowledge d4, Fighting d8, Intimidation d6, Notice d4
Pace: 6; Parry: 6; Toughness: 24 (12)
Edges: Arcane Resistance (+2 to resist arcane abilities, +2 armor vs. magical damage), Brawny (extra load/toughness), Charge (attack at end of Run with no penalty), Frenzy (one attack/rd, may double-strike)
Gear: Demonic armor (+4 Armor, +2 Toughness),
Demonic melee weapon (Str+2d4 AP 6),
Small Shield (+1 Parry, +2 Armor vs. ranged damage).
Toxic Blade (Enchanted Vibro-Greatsword; Damage Str+d12 MD, AP 12; Reach 1; Wielded One-Handed; 5 PPE internal storage, May spend 1 PPE before attacking to force target who is at least Shaken to roll Vigor; failure causes a level of Fatigue, but cannot Incapacitate)
Special Abilities:
Armor +8: Armored hide.
Environmental Immunity: Cold, Fire, Heat, and mortal Poison and Disease.
Fear: Even Lesser Demons are terrifying when first encountered, causing
opponents to make a Fear check.
Infravision: Reduce all Illumination penalties by half (round down) when
fighting beings with body heat.
Size 2 (Normal): Lesser Demons are hulking monsters.
Weakness (Holy Attacks): Demons are vulnerable to holy attacks and weapons
wielded by those who are considered holy opponents, such as those with the
Champion or Holy Warrior Edge. CyberKnights and Mystics who follow any
kind of “path of light” spiritually fall into this category. Such attacks inflict
+4 Mega Damage to Lesser Demons and Wounds caused by such attacks cannot
be regenerated.
Weakness (Silver): Silver weapons and attacks have the same effect as holy
weapons, inflicting +4 Mega Damage and negating demonic regeneration.
