Character Name : Baroness Kathyrn Elizabeth Perenolde Rivendare Silverlaine Von Faustadt

Race & Class : Undead Desolate Templar

Short description of your character’s personality and backstory : Born into Lordaeronian aristocracy before the Second War, Lady Faustadt’s formative years were one of learning proper etiquette and royal conduct. When she came of age she fled into the arms of the Church of Light, less out of faith and more to escape her future as a bargaining chip in her father’s political maneuvering. She’d eventually become a Paladin of the Holy Light. But like many sworn defenders of Light and Lordaeron she was twisted into a champion of the Scourge. The once noble templar still preaches of salvation and eternal reward in her own macabre fashion.

None at time of writing.

What are your IC goals ?
To save the unwashed masses from the world’s many cruelties by granting them the gift of undeath. Well, those who prove themselves worthy, at any rate.

Character Name: Nightvain, Sylvanas Wolf Rider, last of Commander Oedifices Nameless Shadows

  • Vall Ridder prior to the Culling of Stratholme when he was a Human.

Race & Class: Undead Rogue

Short description of your character’s personality and backstory:
Once a Cavalry Soldier of Lorderon based on the kingdoms northern border at a Stratholme garrison, then human Vall Ridder had finally accepted his human heritage sharing a humble apartment with his Blood Elf sister Valaora. At the age of three, he had been discovered by a High Elf family on the eastern shores of the then Eversong Woods. Raised by the Ridders, a High Elf family; he took their last name Ridder. Once coming of age, and being encouraged by his Elf family to join his own kind, Vall served faithfully as a Sergeant and then Staff Sergeant in several Lorderon Cavalry and intelligence units until the Culling of Stratholme where he fell with his entire regiment.

Able to save his now undead sister and taking her to Brill to become a Warlock, Nightvain as he was being known by other freed Undead volunteered to serve in the Dark Lady’s service. Answering a call, he served as a Wolf Rider and intelligence agent reporting on Horde activities abroad. Wolf Riders had been a brief attempt by the new powerful Undead to bridge the gap between them and their new Orc allies, but in reality was an intelligence gathering mission from Undercity.

His personality is always of a professional, even after slaying the Lich King, while others celebrated Nightvain humbly reported back to Undercity. Knelt before the Dark Lady and his Paladin General requesting the next assignment while searching for surviving Shadows of Commander Oedifice, another of his kind. Loyalty has replaced that feeling of a human moral code since becoming Undead. Faith in the Light, and human ethical codes; which his adopted brother tried to reteach him after being reunited seemed to have been lost for the time being with the loss of his life and death. The additional loss of Undercity devastated him along with the deaths of so many he’s worked with over the years, veterans, warriors, brothers in Undeath. Nightvain remains quiet and feels lost in the new world before him as he spends a great deal of time watching you and others from the shadows.

Nightvain to this day refuses to turn his back on Lady Sylvanas despite her questionable motives, the Dark Lady rescued him and his sister from the slavery of the Scourge. He will remain faithful to the end.

Presently his ware bouts are unknown, he was last seen with his adopted brother, a Blood Elf Highlord Paladin charging to his Banshee Queen’s scream fighting Alliance forces during the Battle of Undercity.

Does your characters have IC ties to any other ED character (describe)?
None. Returning player (Jan 2020), moved toons here a year ago but didn’t play. I haven’t met anyone on this server yet, just playing solo. Was a Vanilla – Lich King player.

What are your IC goals?
Find a new home for Nightvain, his warlock sister and the Ridder clan. Perhaps monitor Undercity to see if it can ever be saved or recovered. Continue his faithful service to the Dark Lady, even if he’s the last to believe in her he will remain at her side. Figure out what to do as the last remaining Shadow, his commander, a Highlord Paladin has encouraged him to consider training a new team of Shadows to serve in the recovery of Undercity.

Share a favorite RP memory with this character:
On another RP-PVP server, myself and several others were secretly recruited for a Rogue assassination team. No one in our fairly large and successful raiding guild new of it, and if we failed a trail we never heard about it again. Someone would report being ganked, all of us would quietly log on our Rogues and kill everything in the zone the member was questing in, none of them even knew it was us protecting them. We assassinated in Storm Wind, Iron Forge and across Azeroth, Outlands and Northrend. Later when the guy running it wanted to build a second crew of Rogues, Nightvain became one of the trainers, the group was a different name then, so he was the only remaining Shadow of the original team. Very heavy RP with trials in game based on lore (player made quests, riddles, targets, objectives, etc.) To this day I carry all of the objects I recovered in my bag, each with its own story. Nightvain is the last of a group only known to each other as Shadows.

Thanks so much for reading. Hopefully I’ll see you “out there” … or you won’t see me until I’m a cloud of flash powder leaving your dead body. :sunglasses:

Character Name : Baast Duskwing

Race & Class : Wildhammer Dwarf hunter

Baast’s personality is far greater than her stature. She is exuberant and cheerful with a welcoming smile. She’ll talk to anyone, especially if someone buys her a drink. She’s often equipped with a bawdy joke or a tale of conquest and glory. Although based in truth, those tales are often embellished a bit. She’s seen some s***, a lot of s***, spanning from the Second War through the Argus Campaign. She decided to retire after the defeat of the Burning Legion and take up the family business of brewing. She currently runs Duskwing Brewing Company and hosts tap takeovers at taverns all across Azeroth.

IC ties to other ED characters : Baast is a crew member with the Salty Sea Doggos, a motley crew of pirates, privateers, bandits, and saints.

Baast’s IC goals are to make the best beer she can and put that beer in as many people’s mugs as possible!

I’m old as dirt so I have a lot of fond RP memories with this character. My favorite recent memory is the Great Noodle Wedding. If you know, you know.

Character Name : Cinderion Bloodhawk

Race & Class : Sin’Dorei Blood Mage

Short description of your character’s personality and backstory : Being an Elf of nearly 3,000 years of age Cinderion would be considerably more frail if he did not draw vitality from the tortured demon souls he keeps imprisoned in the verdant spheres that surround him at all times. His age has garnered him a wealth of knowledge and experiences that, amongst other things, have left him with a costly learned prejudice of the shorter lived races - with humans being a particular focus of contempt. This ironically led to a close friendship with the Forsaken who’s functional immortality and sterility make them reliable allies in his eyes.

Does your characters have IC ties to any other ED character (describe) ? He’s the stern headmaster foil to Governess Thelesia’s friendly teacher archetype in the BDS education wing.

What are your IC goals ?
A walking history and weapon, Cinderion seeks to protect his people and proven friends by any means necessary.

Character Name : Cyrik Sunshadow

Race & Class : Sin’dorei Assassin

Age: 95 years old

Affiliation: House Sunstrider

Short description of your character’s personality and backstory: Though young by most elvish standards, Cyrik is aged by the slight bags under his eyes and his dry, maliciously snarky demeanors and mannerisms. He is curious, intelligent, and well travelled with an interest in toys and archeology. Unlike most other high elves who opted to stay within the comforts of Quel’thalas and studying the arcane, Cyrik was far more interested in meeting new people and learning about new things. What sparked the fire of his wanderlust was a toy he was given as a child by a dwarven engineer friend of his father. Amazed by a play thing that appeared to move on its own when wound astounded him more than many of the magical play-things other High Elven children were accustomed to. He travelled to learn more about engineering and toy making but eventually found himself taking up odd-jobs to support himself as he possessed neither the magical acumen of most quel’dorei nor the survival training of a farstrider. Due to his initial curious and trusting nature, what seemed like harmless odd-jobs at the time such as acquiring materials and securing payments for work orders slowly began to snowball into outright criminal activity such as theft, smuggling and debt collection. This eventually led him to munitions and explosives manufacturing. Though he would frequently return home when he could, Cyrik was absent at the time the Scourge had invaded Quel’thalas. When the news had reached him and he returned to Quel’thalas, he had come to learn the fate of his family and friends. When Kael’thas had called for those who would come to the aid of their people and travel with him to Outland, Cyrik was among the first to volunteer himself into the unknown and ultimately brought him into contact with The Burning Legion.

Does your characters have IC ties to any other ED character?

Yes. I’ll leave that narrative up to those who I’ve encountered.

What are your IC goals?

To find a solution for the void poisoning experienced first-hand at manaforge Ultris that is slowly, but assuredly killing him. To establish his own House guild to establish the services, trade, and resources necessary to provide for the general defense and well-being of Quel’thalas (especially more now since it is the only Horde capital in the Eastern Kingdoms and is now dangerously exposed).

My character was being chased by another roleplayer from another realm after attempting to assassinate him for a pvp quest. The fight and the chase continued for so long, it eventually reached the point where we had NO BLOODY iDEA where we were and it turned into a cooperative quest of “Where the hell are we and how do we get out of here?”

Pet Peeve: Being called “Boy” by others of his race and other elven races due to his age.

Short description of your character’s personality and backstory:

Young, dumb and kind. Renato was an orphan who grew up in Stormwind and worked as a farm boy for most of his life. He stumbled upon the Salty Sea Doggos crew and convinced the captain to let him join as a deckhand. Since then he spends his time working on the ship and taking assignments and odd-jobs from fellow crew-mates.

Does your characters have IC ties to any other ED character (describe)?

He is friends with a warlock named Browyn, whom he was assigned to accompany and “protect” on a trip to Outlands. He also accidentally joined a “special fan club” for a tentacly overlord, because he is so very dumb. He’s currently making friends with his crew.

Ren had never left Stormwind until joining up with the Doggos, so he’s really excited to see the world and have new adventures. He’d love to learn to read, too.
