This is a character that Jessica Duval brought that we are making into an NPC.
What is this character’s name? - Seraphine Luna
What is their ancestry (i.e. human, elf, dwarf, halfling, etc)? - Half-elf. Her human father was a mercenary, and her mother was a wood elf/nature elf that served as a healer for her clan and specialized in conjuring the dead.
What is your job or role (i.e. farmer, hierling/mercenary, shopowner, bandit, etc)? - Assassin. She trained with her father and surpassed his skill level, and now hires herself out as an assassin for hire.
How old are you? - Real age is unknown. She appears to be in her 20's. The Shadow Dagger grants her immortality, so she is much older than she appears.
Describe your physical appearance. - An average height of 5'5". Long black curly hair, worn in a braid off to the side. She is built like an acrobat (muscular) but still feminine. Her skin tone has a slight blue shimmer undertone that reflects in the sunlight. In moonlight, her skin takes on a sea green to help blend in with the environment. These skin tone effects are similar to iridescence. Her face is soft and elflike. Her eyes are piercingly light blue to the point of not appearing to be real. A little ninja. Liv Tyler/Arwen-esque.
Describe yourself with 3 adjectives. - Ruthless, Cunning, Enthralling
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.) - The Shadow Dagger which grants her eternal life. It was gifted to her upon her mother's death in combat.
What is a particular quest you would be willing to recruit or hire the player characters to go do? - For causing the death of her mother, Seraphine wants aid in killing the King of the Ashlands. It is Seraphine's sworn duty to avenger her mother's death.
What would be their reward for succeeding? - Seraphine would give one of the player characters a mirror of The Shadow Dagger, but this dagger has a magical effect which grants Health Regeneration. They are each made from the same magical steel, but each magic dagger has separate magical properties.
What would be the consequence of failure or refusing the call? - If the players don't succeed in killing the king (but you at least tried), she will be understanding and recognize you at least tried to help her out--no negative consequences. If the players refuse to accept the quest, she will work as a chaotic and antagonistic element tormenting the party and sabotaging future quests for the party by killing NPCs with information, etc. (she does not like being slighted or refused--she gets this trait from her father). If the players betray or purposefully sabotage her attempts at assasinating the king, she will immediately become hostile and attempt to murder the entire party.
