Aberrant: Theomachy - The NPC thread

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I know, this should be BT's post. I just copy/pasted the stuff he put in the general thread, and added a bit at the bottom for Coraline's father and brother.

The Archon (ruler)

Marmir - The Archon of the Pantheon. Portfolio is rulership, authority, strength, mountains, retribution. Marmir has Q8 with the Climactic Supremacy power, but this power affects regions within Darmathia instead of the entire planet. He sits upon his throne and uses this power remotely to punish any uppity regions with droughts, floods, hailstorms, etc. He is also very capable in physical combat, though he doesn't leave his throne anymore. He has an extremely buff body with the head of a bull. He rarely discusses issues with his underlings once he has made up his mind and has been known to go into rages when things don't work out his way. He allows a great deal of in-fighting and bickering to happen within Darmathia as long as outside forces are stopped from invading. There are many novas who feel his hands-off approach and lack of mobility weakens the entire domain, a feeling that is slowly growing greater. He keeps his three wives against against one another so they don't turn on him, and it is rumored he is looking for a fourth wife.

The Imperatrices (singular: Imperatrix, the three wives who form the Triumvirate who are the power players of the Pantheon)

Samaethir - Wife of Marmir. A sun goddess who is also devoted to education, family bonds, truth, honesty, and loyalty. Samaethir leads what is often called the "Heavenly" branch of the Pantheon, which includes novas that share her philosophy. She has Q6 and very powerful light-based abilities. She is popular among the baseline population, who consider her the most beautiful and pure of heart out of all the wives. She has a welcoming personality and a warm smile to underlings, but also considers herself "at war" with the other two wives, who she feels are sinful savages that need to be smited and their novas converted.

Asona Mahea - Wife of Marmir. A nature goddess who is also devoted to health, fertility, judgment, fortune, revenge, and punishment. Asona Mahea leads what is often called the "Earthly" branch of the Pantheon, which includes novas that share her philosophy. She has Q6 and very powerful nature-based abilities. She is popular among the baseline population, who consider her the most honest and well-intentioned out of all the wives. She is ambivalent to the smaller-scale politics of the Pantheon and prefers to see the big picture but is not above crushing anyone that slights her, and she believes the other two wives need to be killed in order for the world to be a better place.

Viatami - Wife of Marmir. A death goddess who is also devoted to strength, manipulation, fear, the afterlife, necromancy, and war. Viatami leads what is often called the "Infernal" branch of the Pantheon, which includes novas that share her philosophy. She has Q6 and very powerful necromancy-based abilities. She is popular among the baseline population, who consider her the most feared and capable warrior out of all the wives. She is accepting of all novas as long as they show her respect, but makes sure everyone falls within her web somehow, and works day and night to undermine the power of the other wives who she considers weak and bound by morals.

The Duces (singular: Dux, the leading generals of the Pantheon)

Ojin - One of the eldest Pantheon novas, who wears a thick suit of armor and carries a massive cleaving blade capable of cutting down a dozen soldiers at once. He lives by a strict code of personal conduct. He is devoted entirely to Samaethir.

Eresin - A god of the night who tends to be more analytical than the other duces. He has a habit of considering others expendable in battle and will do anything to insure victory. He is devoted entirely to Asona Mahea.

Anashatala - The newest Dux whose bloodthirst on the battlefield is already the stuff of legend. She does not tolerate weakness or cowardice in combat. She is devoted entirely to Viatami.

Others

Phyremus - The guardian of Silgaea city. She carries out punishments on those that break the law.

Cirnace - A god of thieves and potions who is also the praetor of Lichiduum. Unpopular with the Pantheon.

Shoya - A fertility goddess and daughter of Samaethir and Marmir. She has numerous daughters, who she uses to marry off to baselines and novas in order spread the Heavenly branch's power.

Steume, Heryadu, and Nolesa - Three serpent brothers who serve under Anashatala.

Khaosammu - One nova that has two bodies. One body is a mother and the other a daughter, yet the daughter is also the mother of the mother in a strange paradox. She (they?) represent eternity and cycles. Time manipulator.

Ishteros - A god of love. He is extremely popular with baselines. He carries a bow whose arrows can cause targets to become lovestruck. Shuns clothing.

Foreign

Nabananke - The leader of Sile Amune's government. A seer and legendary inventor responsible for many advances in the crafts of war.

Nertartaral - The leader of Sile Amune's armies. A massive grotesquerie that is feared by his neighbors. Brother of Nabananke.

PC Family Members

Benjamin Hutchins, the Gryphon Rider - newly promoted to Commander in the Darmathian army, serving under Ojin. His fame comes from capturing and taming Sonora, a great white gryphon, and the first of the beasts to be used by the Darmathian army. He is the former consort of Skuld, Norn of the Future. Benjamin stands about 5'7", and weighs close to 200 pounds, with platinum-blond hair and pale blue eyes. He has strength and endurance to rival the most powerful of the gods, and a great bow gifted to him by Skuld. He has slain two Sile Amunen novas during the last war, and captured one of Nertartaral's generals.

Erwin Hutchins - newly promoted to Hecatontarch in the Darmathian army, also serving under Ojin. Though the child of Benjamin and Skuld, Erwin has not displayed any sort of god-like abilities, leading some to believe that he is a foundling rather than Benjamin's son. Erwin stands an inch taller than his father, but weight some forty pounds less, with his father's eyes and his mother's dark hair. A betting pool has sprung up among the other hecatontarchs in his battalion as to whether Erwin will display divine heritage in the battle everyone believes is upcoming.
