Marn's Upper Class 6/10 claimed

Marn's Upper Class 6/10 claimed

Post by Saruna on

If you see a character you like please post in this thread to claim it. Or tell me in chat if you like being all anarchist and shit.

Interested in playing part of Marn's elite but not sure where to start? Fear not, I am here to guide you! Marn's upper class has not much been explored in rp except by the intrepid Navarre, Guile and Metarie, but we're here to fix that.

Like political power plays? Wealth? Wild parties? All but three of these characters are geared towards first-time players or longtime players. A few are meant to be paired, and generally speaking all of them should know or know of the others in this list. These characters can fit into their own plots, or be involved with things like the currently-running Marn Restoration Gala, or the Rebellion plot. Totally up to the player!

First names are open to changing, but please keep the last names. These are meant to be the starting players in the larger scheme of Marn's social and political sphere, and as such the characters have been tailored to suit their originating families. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!

Purpose: Upper class shenanigans!
Name: Demetri Vincas (Vincas family)
Gender: male
Age: 18-30
Race: human
Character details:
  • Personal assistant to Agniete Katona. Not by choice. He got a little too handsy with an Oslun girl promised to another man, and now he's stuck with the old biddy. "Keep her occupied!" they said.

  • A patron of the arts?

Oooh, shiney character option....
A villain is in control. A villain is a mask of elegance and style, behind which, is a whirring and brilliant intelligence.

I quite like the idea of Demitri Vincas. Contrary to what I said in my other thread, I think I will get back writing, but with the understanding it might be a week or two per post. So I'll tentatively claim him? I have a few ideas for him I might want to run by someone.
