Elanora & Adriana

  1. These are characters that Anson & Elvia rolled for randomly using my tables.
  2. What is this character’s name? - Anson's character is named Elanora. Elvia's character is named Adriana.
  3. What is their ancestry (i.e. human, elf, dwarf, halfling, etc)? - Elanora & Adriana are twin sisters AND rakshashas.
  4. What is your job or role (i.e. farmer, hierling/mercenary, shopowner, bandit, etc)? - Currently, they are masquerading as a pair of composers. Previously, they were magicians, store owners, etc.
  5. How old are you? - Ancient, they have been corrupting souls for a LONG time.
  6. Describe your physical appearance. - Elanora is decked out in shades of tiffany blue/lighter blues. Adriana is decked out in shades of pink/red tones. SILKS! ONLY THE FINEST! When the sisters are in humanoid disguises, they tend to reflect their ancient nature -- they are hunched over and compact and appear older, but they are still strong and powerful. They've adopted a multitude of disguises over the centuries.
  7. Describe yourself with 3 adjectives. - Elanora is Patient, Wise, Sympathetic. Adriana is Defiant, Headstrong, Ruthless.
  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.) - Elanora has a jeweled collar which gives a bonus to her Charisma. Adriana has an earring that lets you cast the spell Detect Thoughts once per day.
  9. What is a particular quest you would be willing to recruit or hire the player characters to go do? - Elanora and Adriana believe that someone is suspicious of them being rakshasas and has gone into hiding. Because the sisters do not want their secret to be exposed, the sisters ask the player characters to locate this "missing person" by either reporting on their location or bringing them back to the sisters.
  10. What would be their reward for succeeding? - If you have a Bard in your party, the sisters will teach them a song that will allow them to cast the Detect Thoughts spell once per day. At the DM's discretion, if there is no bard in the party, perhaps a monetary reward might be in order or something equal in value (OR CURSED).
  11. What would be the consequence of failure or refusing the call? - If the party refuses the sidequest, the sisters DO NOT want to risk their ruse being found out, they will not immediately react (despite Adriana's ruthless nature). If the party talks with the "missing person" to discover that the composers are actually a pair of rakshasas that are hunting them, then Elanora & Adriana will have no choice but to attack the party at the next available opportunity -- the sisters DO NOT want their secret getting out! If the party genuinely fails to the find the "missing person", the sisters will not teach your Bard the song. Instead, they will "thank you" for trying to help them -- perhaps they will follow your party for a time to torment or mess with your group with their presence/music OR they make plans to strike back at you for failure at a future, UNEXPECTED point in time.
