Human Age (Pre-Cyrus 718):Adulthood bears the traces of childhood experience in many ways. A happy childhood can reflect itself in a brightness of the eye, the lines of laughter around the eyes, a certain trusting gaze. Neronin possesses none of these. His eyes bear the dark flinty look of one who has grown to adulthood by being as untrusting as possible. Instead of laugh lines, his eyes bear dark circles, red and agitated from lack of sleep. His skin is pale and waxy from constant night-time activity. Though he is dark and macabre in appearance, he does possess a subtle attractiveness and a well crafted charisma cultivated by necessity in a city where talking yourself out of a situation could be life or death.








The Kennings



Necromancy
Competent Awakening
Mortisvein Creep: At Competent, Neronin’s veins turn black on his right arm. When casting using his necrotic spark they glow and flicker with a vile green light. At the same time, the area affected by this becomes gaunt and undead. This kenning grows as he gains strength in the discipline, creeping up his arm and eventually across his entire body by mastery. At revelation Neronin is permanently in the state of the undeath visage. The extensive growth of this awakening makes it difficult to blend in in public. Most assume Neronin is diseased, though the learned may suspect the truth.

Expert Awakening
Dualshadow Haunt: At expert, Neronin’s shadow appears as a dark aura around his feet, shifting and moving as if alive. The shadow will reach out and attack other shadows with clawed limbs and occasionally green eyes can be seen there. This mutation has infused Neronin’s shadow with residual necrotic ether which gives him the capability of summoning from it two separate Haunts rather than the traditional one haunt. It also makes it very hard for him to blend in to public, forcing him to take care where he goes. This second haunt counts against Neronin’s thrall count.

Master Awakening
1. Curse of the Decayed: This Master level mutation manifests as a rotten and decaying digestive tract. Neronin will swallow bits of intestines he has reanimated and they will fester inside him. After three trials he is capable of regurgitating the undead matter to create Blights, Pestilents, and Plaguemen at reduced rates. It will then enter the corpse’s mouth and begin the process of converting it to the desired thrall. A Blight will cost 2 thralls, Pestilents will be 1.5x thrall modifier, and plaguemen will cost 5 thralls. This undead gut can be seen sliding under his skin, searching for flesh to consume. Its presence inside him makes Neronin hunger for more undead flesh to feed it.

2. Command of the Cryptlord: At mastery, Neronin’s voice becomes ethereal and rasps with arcane energy, as if he is speaking from the spirit world. His words are clearly corrupted by his arcane spark. Because of this kenning, Neronin’s Rotknights cost 7 thralls, but each is specialized moreso than other Rotknights. Each can only cast one necrotic spell, and raise a single type of thrall. These three subsets are:
1)The Leech: Sap and Husks
2)The Decayor: Wither and Marrows
3)The Corruptor: Restore and Blights


Rupturing
Competent Awakening
Sigilcrown: At Competent, flickering green runes appear in a language he does not know on his temples. These runes glow at all times with the chaotic light of his rupturing spark. As he progresses in strength more runes appear in a crown-like circle around his head. They make it very difficult to blend into polite society since their flickering light can be seen through make-up if not careful.

Expert Awakening
Firemark Rune: At Expert, vivid and painful runes of the same type as the Sigilcrown appear at random, at random times, all over Neronin’s body as burned into flesh. These runes last a trial and fade. This effect causes discomfort (until undeath) to Neronin and can signal to the casual observer that he is a mage.

Master Awakenings
1. Corrupted Portals: At master, Neronin’s portals are corrupted by his necrotic spark. They appear surrounded by the black miasma that makes up his Sap and Siphon spells. This corrupted ether often manifests momentarily into skulls and other bony limbs. This does not affect the function or cost of abilities.

2. Thrall Network: Neronin’s portals cost less ether to create when he has a thrall he controls within ten feet of the destination area. On the other hand, casting long range portals without the presence of a thrall costs more ether for Neronin.


Abrogation

Personality
Neronin is guarded in his social interactions. He often holds back or outright lies to avoid giving someone any real connection. But he can be starkly frank to those who he deems trustworthy. Born as a common weaver’s son in Etzos, he has grown to be street-smart, using aggression and submissiveness as tools more than personality traits. In truth, he burns with a general loathing of those who let themselves be controlled. This is his defining trait, the need to be in control of himself. He lacks the ability to be truly free of other’s will, living under Vuda’s regime in Etzos, and compensates by trying to exert control over others. He does this by manipulating other’s through sheer charisma, or on a much darker level by reanimating the dead. This sick obsession is as much a product of his weaknesses and decisions as it is a product of the oppressive nature of Etzos.

Coming from an especially harsh background, Neronin possesses a decidedly dark humor, revelling in the misfortunes of others he perceives as better off, or enemies. He gives of an air of apathy, though that is his outward appearance. It is controlled, stylized. Internally he is more disdainful than apathetic. He is capable of empathy, and loyalty, and all the rest of the spectrum of positive human qualities. He is just out of practice. The last person he loved was his mother, who betrayed that love. Bitterness flavors his every motivation, his every decision.

Neronin

Postby Neronin » Wed Jan 11, 2017 7:18 pm

History




Blood and tears flavored the youngest years of Neronin’s life. Then the tears ran out. Born to an abusive father and a weak mother he spent his early years learning survival from the end of his father's fire-poker or the unforgiving cruelty of the streets of Etzos. Abused and desperate for attention, Neronin sought comfort from his mother. He desperately tried to be whatever he needed to be to make his mother protect him, or make his father stop beating him. It did not work. The only thing that kept the fear and pain at bay was, as he grew to find, anger, hate, and independence. He slowly weened himself off the need for his parents, though he still lived with them. It was better than getting stabbed on the street or kidnapped into slavery.

This independence came with a new wrathful defiance toward his father and his abusive hold over the household. The result was more beatings, more poker-scars, and more hate brewing in the boy. But Neronin was no longer the soft child he had once been. Still a boy he was, but a smart one hardened by a life of suffering. When his father got in the mood for violence, Neronin would often slip out of the house knowing full well the blows would land on his mother instead. But her weakness and slavish servitude long ago sapped whatever empathy or pity Neronin had for her. She had never raised a hand in his defense, instead rationalizing the blows. She encouraged some mysterious conformity, as if his father's anger could ever be abated by any change Neronin could make.

One evening it all went too far. Too far by the screwed up standard of Neronin's family, not by normal standards. He showed up at the door after a day spent resolutely away from kin, a good day. Before entering the battered old home he could hear his father's panting effort. He felt anger flare up inside him. It was not born of affection for his mother, indeed she caused it as much as he. Her disgusting submissive nature, his pathetic, cowardly physical dominance. Both were so typical, so predictable in their behavior that the anger flared up in a vile pool of disgust within him. He kicked in the door then, unable to help himself. They deserved to know what he thought of them. When he stepped in the room, however, his father took one look at him and launched into the most vicious assault he had ever conducted.

The fire-poker, an old enemy of Neronin's, danced from his mother's whimpering form to his. He felt the hot pangs of pain lace his body, dousing the anger within him. He had no room for it, all he could think about was the pain. Neronin collapsed and found the wooden floor's cool boards a surprising vivid sensation coupled with the iron cruelness of the poker. But that only lasted a moment, until the world fell into darkness. Neronin was eleven.

He wasn't supposed to wake up. His parents had inspected his body and were sure he was dead. They had muttered between themselves of what to do with the corpse. Eventually they decided to haul him over to old Gavrel, they heard the old man paid real money for fresh corpses. In the end it had cost Gavrel nine silver nels. He didn't even get what he paid for.

Neronin awoke with a start, his whole body aching with pain. He moaned and struggled on a cold, stone surface. As he opened his eyes, Neronin was greeted with faint candle light and the eerie sight of bones. Bones lain upon shelves, bones piled in wooden crates and barrels, bones that seemed fresh from a corpse. He was in a small room, stone with a dirt floor. Neronin saw a few scrolls and books littered across a desk which was the primary source of light in the small chamber. Behind the desk sat a gaunt, pale man. He watched in surprise as Neronin sat up and rasped in broken breaths.

"You're supposed to be dead." the man said simply.

"Well..." Neronin breathed, every word a struggle. "My... father always... was a dis...appointment." He stared back at the older man.

"This isn't what I paid for!" The old man stood, extending one hand palm down. "You had a purpose when dead, now you're useless."

Neronin was profoundly confused by this. Could his corpse really be more useful than the living being? Was he that worthless? He watched as the old man muttered under his breath, gesturing with surprising dexterity for one his age. Neronin was thoroughly confused for a moment, and then one of the barrels of bones moved. He watched in horror as they shuffled about and one ivory hand clutched the edge of the barrel. The hand became an arm, and then Neronin watched as the top half of a human skeleton pushed itself out of the barrel. The empty eye sockets were fixated on him with a hunger that he would never forget. This was magic. This was power.

"Stop please! I'll do anything! Spare me and I will serve you." He pleaded, sickeningly servile. "Let me learn from you and I will give you far more than one corpse! I'll give you anything." By this time the skeletal minion had it's cold boney hands grasping Neronin's shirt. It stopped, Neronin stared into the face of undeath.

"Very well. You will provide me with corpses, free of charge, for your life." The man said, making a waving motion with his hand. The skeleton released Neronin, turning back to it's barrel. "I will be your master, my name is Gavrel."

"What is this?" Neronin gestured at the barrel that now housed a recently motionless pile of human bones.

"That? Something of a Marrow. Well, are you going to find me a corpse for tonight's experiment?" Gavrel asked impatiently. And so Neronin's unlikely apprenticeship in Necromancy began. Under constant threat of being killed and turned into a 'useful' aide, Neronin learned to pretend at servitude. The hunger for power became too great under Gavrel to rebel against the mage. Gavrel was not a kind master, but Neronin was not accustomed to kindness anyway, and was not bothered. Gavrel constantly threatened or manipulated Neronin. He sent him out to rob graves or switch medicines, anything to bring in more corpses for his dark magic. He sometimes Sapped Neronin of his energy and threatened to let his minions devour the boy.

Gavrel was, however prickly, an excellent teacher. Eventually Neronin was initiated into the art himself. It was a horrific and glorious day. The threats did not stop coming after that, the need to find corpses to keep himself from becoming one did not go away. Now instead of the few hours of sleep he would have gotten, he scavenged the city for dead rodents for his own practices. They were easily acquired and able to be hidden from Gavrel, who would see any corpse not his as a breach of their agreement, even a rat.

And so it went on, Neronin dancing the line between power and death. He constantly tested Gavrel, unable to fully commit to his servile role. He would challenge Gavrel's ability in subtle ways, pushing him to dangerous levels. Sometimes it would cause breakthroughs, of which Neronin would have to endure silently. Sometimes, though, it would cause disaster. His subtle coaxing would on occasion cause a minion to get out of Gavrel's control. Neronin knew that Gavrel making a mistake was the only way he would be released of service, and he loathed service.

Eventually he convinced Gavrel to attempt a Hulk, a massive meaty monster that would propel Gavrel's prestige as a mage past anything he had previously achieved. They were both present in the dank chamber when Gavrel began the incantation. Neronin could feel the effort in it. He smiled inwardly at the older man's complacency. What an idiot he was to trust in another's presence during such a vulnerable ritual. But that was the weakness of arrogance. Neronin waited until his master was fully invested in the incantation before he began to work his own ether. He pulled from himself a miasma of dark, vile ether and willed the dark cloud to hurl itself at Gavrel's back. The Sap made him falter and fall to his knees. Neronin knew he had to run. Whether his plan worked or not, he should not be present or risk being devoured himself. As he fled the room and leant against the wooden door he heard the sound of Gavrel's screams. The horror and pain of the sound brought a satisfied smile to the face that so rarely wore them. His visage almost seemed kind in that moment.

He let the Hulk have its meal without interruption. Instead he gathered the burlap sack of rodent bones he had in his room, the meager menagerie of allies he could trust. He left the old man's home with all his belongings in two bags and made his way to another familiar home. Before entering his parent's home he wondered vaguely if they would recognize their supposedly dead son. He dropped the bag of bones on the ground outside their door and raised his hands. It took a long moment to cast the spell, but no one disturbed the solitude of the street. The bag began to move with the new life he had bestowed. A thrill of power surged through him and he watched as the decaying rats crawled into view, searching with that ever present hunger for living flesh. Neronin gently opened the door for them. He stepped easily over the foremost rats of the swarm and entered the familiar room. It was empty, but the door to his parent's bedroom was ajar.

He walked to it, urging his tiny minions along in his wake. The scratching of their claws upon the floor was a faint hissing. peered inside the bedroom and saw the familiar forms of his parents in bed. He hesitated, struggling with whether he should wake them or not, then decided against it. They were not worthy of a final conscious thought. Instead he poured his hatred and disgust into the swarms of rats under his command. They scurried past their master and into the bedroom. He did not watch as they climbed the blanket onto the bed. He did not listen as his parents awoke with terrified screams. He did not come when they begged for help. He did not regret when they died.

He counted out nine silver nels and let them fall, one by one, onto the floor.

NPCs : Name:Roland
Race: Human
Date of Birth: 690 Arc, 4th Zi'da, 28
Skills: Investigation 30, Intelligence 30, Pickpocketing 30, Stealth 10
Appearance: With a long, scarred face, Ronald has a blind eye and unkempt hair. He wears stained leathers and linens and a cowl almost all the time. He smells of onions and seems to be covered in the grime characteristic of an Underground native.
Personality: Roland gravitates towards the dark and powerful. He is nosey by nature and profession and quick with his fingers and his wit. Sometimes this peevish humor rubs people the wrong way, or most of the time really. In fact, most who know him well don't like Roland. Luckily enough for him, most of those individual's reside exclusively in the Underground, leaving him to roam the topside freely.
Relationship to PC: Employee, Spy
Anything: No

Necromancy Spellbook

Thrall Types : 
ImageNameCountDifficultyDesc.
ImageSwarm2 ThrallsNoviceA hive mind group of undead rodents/insects that can have a mass up to that of a normal human. Neronin mostly uses dead rats because of their convenience.
#Fetch1 thrallCompetent Small, mischievous golems that are simple to create. While limited in their intellectual capacity, they reason with simple instinct and cruel intent.
ImageMarrow2 ThrallsNoviceSkeletal thralls with no flesh. These are some of the easiest to transport and animate and are vulnerable to bludgeon attacks but not piercing.
ImageHusk1 ThrallNoviceHusks are corpses reanimated and are some of the easiest to create. They are untampered with cadavers and move slowly. They are difficult to kill.
ImageHaunt 4 thrallsCompetentHaunt is a translucent specter, often shaped from the shadow of the necromancer. Unlike any other undead type, a Haunt can be shaped to the necromancer's whims while it is in existence, manifesting claws, teeth, or any manner of weapons and additions the necromancer needs. While relatively fragile, it can easily be reformed with a necromancer's will.
ImageGolem1-5 thrallsCompetent Golems are beings created from clay, wood, or stone that are imbued with specific instructions and sometimes wells to keep them active in a necromancer's lair.
#Blights3 thrallsExpertCurrently known. A Blight vomits and bleeds an acrid bile-like substance that burns like acid to the touch. Writhing within them are also flesh-hungry carrion worms, grown to the thickness of pythons that erupt from their skin to clamp grasping maws onto anything with a heartbeat, eager to devour and grow. In addition, a miasma of choking smell surrounds the Blights, making it difficult, if not impossible to breathe while within three feet of them. Those outside that range up to fifteen feet risk vomiting and intense nausea (counteracted by meditation, Resistance, or Discipline) when these creatures approach. Some necromancers cruelly use Blights to poison water supplies, or leave disease in the wake of an attack. While not particularly quick, the Blight has surprisingly resilient skin to piercing.
ImageGaunts4 thrallsExpertCurrently known. Neronin has create a customized form of the gaunt he calls 'Maimers', these are tall distorted beings with claws and vicious teeth. They have broad muscled backs and elongated arms. Their feet have been alongated to resemble those of canines and they run with a wild loping stride. Neronin prefers to keep them animates with wells such as Ezymite.
ImageMetalbornX3 thrallsMasteryAt Mastery a Golem can be crafted or animated from metal (although the body must be prepared ahead of time). Weaker metals retain a based cost but metals beyond accrue additional penalties depending on their construction. Steel adds an additional 10% (rounded up) in point cost and various metals have a different cost depending on the metal used.
ImageRevenant3-12 thrallsMasteryA Revenants is the soul of the body, trapped in a well, and placed within the body the soul belongs to. The necromancer usually painstakingly restores the body as best they can before placing the soulstone within. While the soul is actually trapped with no will of its own to enact, the body remembers the skills it had in life.
#Stitchborn2-5MasteryA grotesque example of Necromantic mastery, a Stichborn is a thrall created of two or more corpses fused or shaped together. Stitchborn types and appearances vary wildly. A necromancer no longer needs the entire body to animate. Utilizing a well, they can truly let their creativity bleed through their craft.
ImageRotknight10 thrallsRevealCurrently unknown. A Rotknight is best described as a kind of general to a Necromancer. Not only are they quite physically sound, fast, and likely well shaped against damage...but a RotKnight can do what no other construct type can...channel its own necromantic spells. A RotKnight is capable of almost any ability the necromancer is at their own level, save raising thralls with wells. Sap, Wither, Preserve, Restore are all powers the RotKnight possesses. Additionally the RotKnight can raise Husks and other terrible things of its own accord.
#Plaguemen7 thrallsReveal Currently unknown. Those a Plagueman wounds will quickly contract a virulent and devastating sickness. High fever, convulsions, and hallucinations are the hallmark of the illness, Grave Touch, with a tell-tale purple-black bruising under the eyes. Most cannot last more than a few days in the throes of the sickness and the weak can barely last one. Those killed by the Plagueman or by the diseases it carries, Grave Touch, will rise from death as Husks, bent only on devouring the living and bringing the bodies to the Plagueman for infection.
#StoneheartN/ARevealStonehearts, among Necromancers, are the only undead who retain their intellect. Sacrificing a necromancer's ability to control them, a Stoneheart is a mortal being with a soulstone in place of their own heart. Some consider the Stoneheart to be a sort of protolich.

ImagePestilentX2 thrallsExpertThe Pestilent undead carries a necrotizing disease and hundreds of small, carnivorous carrion worms within their bodies. When destroyed they release their toxins into the air around them and the small carrion worms spread from the body looking for fresh flesh for up to a break before expiring. These carrion warms can break through the thrall's flesh if they sense life around them. Pestilent undead also have the remarkable ability to sense life.
ImageGiantX2 thrallsCompetent A Giant is a thrall type of any creature or person exceeding 6’5 or weighing twice that of an ordinary human (Roughly above 300 lbs).
ImageHulkX3 thrallsExpertCurrently unknown, Not so much a Thrall type as it is a thrall size. Hulk can be applied to any undead thrall template in order to denote the size. A Hulk is an undead up to the size of an elephant. In terms of control, a Hulk counts as triple the base value of the thrall type controlled.
ImageBehemoth5X thrallRevealBehemoth is anything larger than a Hulk up to the size of a whale in terms of size.
Abilities : 
ImageNameDifficultyDesc.
#SapNoviceA necromancer releases a miasma of black-tinged ether. The ether clings to whatever living thing it can find, stealing their strength, heat, and energy.
#PreserveNovicePreserve is the simple cessation of decay in living matter. Necessary for the longevity of thralls, Necromancers can sometimes overlook the importance of this ability.
#LinkCompetentLink extends that radius for a single thrall and opens a Necromancer's power to a ranged component. Many necromancers are all too aware of their magic's limitations.
#RestoreCompetentRestore is a regenerative technique that undoes the damage of rot and damage to a corpse. Usually a fairly slow process at competence, this ability can be made much quicker at mastery and near instantaneous for a legendary necromancer.
#ProtocolExpert Protocol is the process of encoding commands into the undead. As a necromancer grows in power they may not always be directly controlling their thralls. Some must be trusted to operate or defend on their own without the necromancer's intervention.
#WitherExpertThe necromancer can focus entropic energy around their hands which swiftly rots away any living matter that comes in contact with it. While primarily an expedited tool from Sap, Wither has become an essential part of a necromancer's arsenal in combat.
#Corpse MoldingExpertAt this stage the necromancer can warp a dead body like clay, similar to what a Grafter can do, truly coming into their own as a creative power. Corpse Molding allows a Necromancer to easily manipulate all dead flesh and bone into the shapes and directions he or she desires. Stitchborn and Marrows are the result of Corpse Molding.
#SiphonMasterA master necromancer can choose to impart an extra effect to both Wither and Sap once they ascend to mastery and learn the technique. As an opponent becomes exhausted or injured, a necromancer will heal with their vital energy.
Known Wells : Ezymite: Weakest well, good for beginning level thralls.
Imedyte: Second weakest, good for beginning to intermediate thralls.
Current Forces :

#Gaunt (Maimer)ExpertCurrently x3 (ezymite wells). Strong and fast, these horrific undead are not very smart and do not Belen in well. These are Neronin's general fighters.
#Raven/RatNoviceNeronin sometimes uses an undead raven to Link and observe his surroundings for intelligence gathering purposes. While he hasn't made a permanent thrall of this type with a well, he can easily acquire and animate one for the cost of 1 thrall.
#Yoriq JavarMasterExpert Revenant, Imedyte Well, Expert Blades (Longsword), Competent Strength, Acrobatics, And Endurance.
