Marquot Alabast - New Character
« on: June 21, 2020, 01:32:29 pm »
Name: Marquot Alabast
Profession: Guard
Race: Human   Age: 19
Classes: 10 Fighter / 10 Weapon Master
Alignment: Lawful Neutral

His father was a guard. His mother was a guard before his birth. And it goes back generations. All he knows is regiment life, and how to protect Center. Utterly obsessed with hierarchy, and infatuated with pomp and circumstance, he arrives to protect and defend the status quo. He is fearless and obsessed with law and order. Having been only to the handful of cities in extremely close proximity, he lacks a cohesive and nuanced view of reality.

Hello Cascadian,

I am trying to see a motivation for Marquot to leave his position as a guard and become an adventurer. Can you please elaborate this a little more? Why would he leave the life behind that his father and mother also had? How do they feel about it? Being guards in Center, they have seen several adventurers coming and going and sometimes not coming back as well. I'd like to also see a little bit more on how he strives to become a weapon master.

He doesn't actually intend to leave to leave his position as a guard. His parents would disapprove, though they support him in his decisions. They would be very disappointed in his decision to become an adventurer. He doesn't want to be an adventurer.

If the story requires him to leave the area immediately around Center, he might. He lives to protect Center, but also the general idea of a safe land for the commonest of common folk. Assuming they obey the rules.

He wishes to be not merely a good guard, but the best. Other men pursue gold, fame and fortune. All he strives for is protection of the innocent, and invisible, common people of Center. And he'll kill for the status quo.

// This is a meditation on extreme Lawful Neutral. It's an excuse to explore the land without the 10 death penalty applying. He's Central Casting; a pug nosed, Lawful Neutral zealot. He's done nothing but swing swords and briefly incarcerate drunks, the former mostly. He's learned from generations of swordhands, so I don't feel WM is a reach.
