In-Depth Relationships

The Useful
Those whom Preotul sees use for


The Apathetic

Amelia Flint: "Nu am nici un folos pentru ea."
He keeps running into this woman for some reason or other, and finds her little more than a slight amusement to listen to. Preotul doubts she will serve any real purpose to him later down the road (Samiwashere )

Arianne Fuvur: "Un astfel de puzzle simplu de rezolvat."
A woman who tried to come off mysterious, but left herself open to being read by a blind man's ear. She favors no gods, but that is no matter of his. However, Preotul did find her insight on these things refreshing (Rossu )

The Dark One: "S-ar putea să fiți un instrument util..."
Preotul's knowledge of this being is limited, and he can only glean bits and pieces from the underworld networks. Still, they may be a valuable ally, and a useful benefactor in the manner of his experiments

The Useless
Those whom Preotul sees no use for


The Worthless
Those Preotul views as less than dirt

The Rotting

An Old Friend: "Ah, cum au căzut cei puternici."
A former colleague and liege lord to Rev. Vârcolac, he too was once a follower of Jishrim in the times of the Old World. Preotul soon became tired of the man, as he mellowed too much with age to still be of use

Goon: "Om prost."
A goon he hired to help him dig up some graves near Rogue's Hearth, he was far less than impressed with the idiot, and proceeded to kill him in cold blood. What he has done with the body is unknown


Inspirations
The inspirations for the major character aspects of Rev. Preotul Vârcolac came from several classic monsters of horror: Edward Hyde in "Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde", Wilbur Whateley of "The Dunwich Horror", Dr. Moreau from "The Isle of Dr. Moreau", and the many gruesome legends of the Spanish Inquisition. In appearance, he is a mirror image of Father Gascoigne from the game "Bloodborne", with a bit of an H.P. Lovecraft style flare for theatrics

Equipment
Sângeros (Hatchet)

A worn, rusted, but still sharp axe carried by Preotul for protection. It is by no means small, though it is easily concealed by his bulky frame and thick
longcoat. His brute strength, combined with its great size, make it an effective weapon

Weapon_Sângeros.jpg


Măciucă (Staff)

A stout, oaken staff that can easily break bones with enough rage behind it. It is usually used more, however, as it was intended to be used; as a walking stick, helping him see and navigate

No, it is you who must fight me!


Is there an inside joke here, or did I legit just do something wrong!
Well you went wrong making a Jishrim preacher. The moment that his existence is public there's going to be a proper pitchfork mob coming after him.

Hmm... I suppose it would be the insane thing to do if he were to go public... but he is also not stupid, so he might not... these are the tough choices I now face.

Oh my god, I was about to make a character that is the priest of Jishrim in 2 or so days. Can you read my mind.?
If it makes you feel better, he is looking for an assistant! Digging up bodies and performing unspeakable horrors is hard work for one guy, especially when that guy is blind.
