Building a world, one character at a time.


  1. This is a character that Charles Basile randomly generated with my tables.
  2. What is this character’s name? - Anamaria
  3. What is their ancestry (i.e. human, elf, dwarf, halfling, etc)? - Mind-flayer a.k.a. Illithid
  4. What is your job or role (i.e. farmer, hierling/mercenary, shopowner, bandit, etc)? - Calligraphist. Works for the local governemnt (in both official and corrupt/criminal capacities).
  5. How old are you? - Teenager
  6. Describe your physical appearance. - Average medieval teenage peasant girl, except a mind-flayer. Her farm-basic dress is embroidered and a littler finer. She has ink stains on her mouth tentacles.
  7. Describe yourself with 3 adjectives. - Precise, Prissy, Sarcastic
  8. What is a valuable item/piece of lore/secret that this character possesses? Or do they value an ideal/concept or particular person (i.e. family member, guild member, honor, justice, love etc.) - A gemstone necklace. It's from her first meal.
  9. What is a particular quest you would be willing to recruit or hire the player characters to go do? - Steal some documents and switching them out with a forgery. In this case, it's a love letter and mundane document switch situation; she will make up the story about how serious it is, but in reality, she sent her crush (a shopkeeper type figure) a love letter and she meant to give him a requisition order.
  10. What would be their reward for succeeding? - A forged copy of a prominent, inaccurate compendenium that was written by a famous person (with a forged signature).
  11. What would be the consequence of failure or refusing the call? - Her and the shopkeeper will actually hit it off, but she will be resentful towards the party for this. Whether her beau will just be her next meal, will remain to be seen.
