Aligned With: The Red Dragonarmy 3rd Battalion

Candida Nesmith – [Human Paladin Daughter of Mercy]
Aspects: “Clueless Daughter of Mercy”, “Sins Are Cleansed In Blood”, “It’s For Your Own Good, I Promise”
An extremely tall woman with blond hair and green eyes clad in full plate, who wields two-handed seven-branched Shichishito sword. She has a guileless, friendly expression, and appears to be somewhat bewildered by the strange sights all around her.
Candida is a new recruit of the Sons of Mercy who has recently arrived at Sigil. She comes from a world whose mythology links body and soul inextricably, and as such, she believes that for someone to truly repent for their sins, their body equal contrition to their soul.

Nonsense – [Human Sodkiller]
Aspects: “Sodkiller Executioner”, “No Pleasure And No Pain”, “From Nothingness, Coherence”, “Don’t Understand Others’ World, Don’t Care”, “Anything For Revenge”
A man covered in scars with black hair and azure eyes. He has a perpetually flat expression, and wears light armor and a pair of curved, twisted knives. A small raven is perched upon his shoulder, and rarely leaves his side.
The victim of a nasty curse that deprived him of all sensory input, Nonsense is a latent magus whose talent saved his life from a quick, horrifying death. His familiar, Coherence the raven, could transmit impressions of his surroundings through their mental connection, allowing him to interact with the world by proxy. Once a cheery fellow, Nonsense has become a bitter, bitter man thanks to his curse which no one has been able to lift, and hunts criminals for the Sodkillers in hopes of one day ending the life of the man who cursed him to live such a miserable existence.

Angularia Temperata – [Succubus Ring Giver]
Aspects: “Extraplanar Ringer Financist”, “Devilish Dealmaker”, “An Offer You Won’t Refuse”, “Am I Evil?”, “‘Trampoline, take out the trash!’”
A woman with red skin, cyan eyes with no discernible pupils or cornea, massive bat wings and a twisting, lizardlike tale whose beauty defies comprehension, clearly a succubus who steals the souls and minds of men. She has a perpetually amused and slightly beatific expression, and her manner is teasing and frank.
Nobody knows why a greater succubus chose to appear at the Ring Givers’ doorstep one day to demand membership, but the fact of the matter is that Angularia has become a regular stop for any of Sigil’s Blood, as she happily hands away significant gold sums to those who ask, demanding no qualifications or promises from them, following the Ring Givers’ credo. Nobody knows what sort of game she’s playing, but the angelic powers of Sigil are so suspicious of her that they’ve set up a permanent watch on her Finance Tower and keep her under surveillance whenever she ventures outside. Though she does her best to make her guests comfortable while discussing business and has not intentionally used her powers on any of her clients as far as the angels know, her aura of seduction is so overwhelming that many lesser beings have become enraptured by her, requiring her giant bodyguard Trampoline to remove them from the premises.

Gladiator Joe – [Githzerai Arena Master]
Aspects: “Master of the Arena Eternal”, “Retired Great Warrior”, “Always Looking For New Talent”, “Close Friend of the Ciphers”, “Where Does He Get All Those Wonderful Toys?”
A gith who appears to be in the prime of his life, wearing a leathery lorica musculata, matching bracers and a simple navy traveling cloak. He seems to carry no weapons, but when threatened he can manifest purpleish energy from his hands, giving it the shape of any weapon he desires. He has a welcoming demeanor, and his eyes always have an appraising look to them.
In the Great Gymnasium there is a permanently active artificial portal, leading to an island floating in the middle of an endless night, all around which pieces of rubble float. A spacious colosseum is built on top of the island, filled with merchants peddling their wares and dangerous men and women from all places and demanors. It is the Arena Eternal, a place removed from time and space where warriors from entirely different worlds and eras can do battle with each other. The man who runs it is a githzerai who responds to the name of Gladiator Joe. A warrior of tremendous skill, Joe does not speak much of how he founded the Arena Eternal. When confronted about it, he simply says it is what it is, and its purpose is to test the mettle of the greatest fighters of the multiverse, with the goal of finding its champion. Multiple leagues are constantly running, from team battles to individual fights to ladder matches. The warriors who sign up for a league are provided with a tuning crystal. Once their match is about to begin, the crystal whisks them to the Arena Eternal, healing all their injuries and replenishing them in the process, for the purpose of doing battle with fierce opponents until one side has fallen. For some reason, not even the worst blows are lethal in the Arena Eternal, and after the matches are concluded and a winner is announced, the fighters are once again restored to full health and whisked back to the place and time were they previously were, as if nothing had happened. As the fighters defeat their opponents and advance through the ladders and brackets, they gain rewards for their mettle and inch ever closer to fighting the reigning Champions, each of them a grandmaster of war in his own ways. Those who succeed become the new champions, and rumor has it that Gladiator Joe awards those clever and powerful enough to fight their way to the top with prizes that can shake up the very nature of the Planes.

Captain Lara DiZel – [Human Spelljammer Captain]
Aspects: “Spelljamming Captain of Fire Runner”, “More Than Just Precious Stones, An Ancient Promise”, “Factional Courier”, “Hatred For The Lich Queen”
A striking woman with auburn hair, who wears elegant pirate garb and a tricorn. Instead of the usual cutlass, she carries a saber on her waist, along with an ever-ready flintlock pistol. She is graceful and approachable, but maintains an air of mystery and tries to keep people at arm’s length.
The Captain of the Fire Runner, Lara DiZel is an experienced Spelljammer, and a woman respected by all for her many services as a dependable emissary between the now-scattered factions. She is willing to take passengers anywhere, for the right price or a strange service: the Captain is looking for certain precious stones, for a purpose which she will not discuss. These stones are apparently no different from your average emerald, ruby or diamond, but they are incredibly important to her and she has gone into debt before to track down the whereabouts of one. Her jewel collection is almost complete, but in this case, ‘almost’ is not good enough. Though she prefers to keep her opinions hidden for most things, she is outspoken in her tremendous dislike for the Lich Queen of the Githyanki, and will go out of her way to spite her agents, citing an old enmity with her.

Foes

Half-Mask
Aspects: “Master Spellsword”

Chancellor Adek – [Veo’s Psychopathic In-Law]
Aspects: “Wizard-Spymaster of the Realm”, “If I Can’t Have It No-One Can”, “The World Owes Me”
Brother of Queen Sulure of Edu-Sarminan and a right wanker. Willing to start a civil war just so he could take the throne a few years sooner. Finds judicious use of murder, intrigue, and raw magical power a decent substitute for being remotely likable.
