Character Information Edit

Background Edit

The murky history of Colgrave's family tree lies somewhere in the Demon Wastes, but his parents were always loath to speak of it. What he knows is that they fled from their homeland together to start a new life, free from the past. They crossed the border to Aundair, and took sanctuary in a mission of the Silver Flame. In time, they came to the faith, and Colgrave's father Arrevain entered the service of the Church as a paladin. Thanks to this status, despite the hostilities between the two nations, they were able to move freely to Thrane. There they were married, conceiving a child soon after.

So Colgrave was born, and grew up in a world steeped in faith. During his childhood, his father was making a name for himself as a great champion of the Church, and there was never any doubt that the same was expected of Colgrave. From the first manifestation of his magical talent, however, he never had any interest in following in his father's footsteps. Increasingly he felt oppressed by his environment and the expectations that were put upon him, and he ran from home to make his own way in the world when he was only fourteen years old.

He supported himself as a performer in taverns and on street corners, doing magic tricks. His arcane talent was raw and undeveloped, but he used it with imagination, and if it wasn't enough to impress any experienced wizard it was sufficient to pay his way and earn him admirers in the crowd. With his startling looks, he quickly realised that if he didn't make himself into a public exhibit then people would notice him anyway and he could quickly lose control of the kind of attention he received. So he learned to rely on his wits and charm, to never let his guard down - and gradually he honed his magical abilities, teaching himself as best he could.

In order to get safe passage from Thrane during wartime he joined up with a troupe of minstrels and entertainers in the employ of House Phiarlan. He travelled on with them for a time after that, learning what he could from them and carrying on a rather ill-advised dalliance with their leader and star performer Astrae d'Phiarlan. When he realised that things were in danger of becoming serious - serious enough to draw House attention to him - he took his hurried leave and continued his wanderings alone.

Appearance Edit

Colgrave stands just under seven feet tall, not counting the bony horns that curve up from his forehead. His short, curly hair is an iridescent violet colour like the plumage of a tropical bird, and his skin is deep bronze. His eyes are opalescent orbs. It's fair to say that he would have a hard time blending into a crowd if he tried, but it's evident that he doesn't have the slightest desire to do so. He sports a goatee beard, meticulously waxed, and walks with a gold-tipped cane. His costume is a flamboyantly dandified affair of dark silk and white lace, and he comports himself with a sort of dissipated elegance.

Age: 19 Gender: Male Height: 6'10" Weight: 190 lbs.

Personality Edit

Colgrave behaves with an exaggerated theatrical politeness which, combined with the obvious infernal overtones to his looks, gives him a distinctly Mephistopholean air. He's entirely aware of this, and indeed goes out of his way to cultivate it as his public persona.

In truth, though, there's little that's devilish about his personality, except perhaps for a slight overabundance of pride. Despite his aversion to personal responsibility, the fact is that he shares more principles than he would ever admit with his Paladin father. Like him, he's determined more than anything not to let his actions or views be dictated by the base urges and temptations of his bloodline. But where his father found a cause in the Silver Flame, Colgrave takes his stand upon a sort of personal gentleman's honour.

Alignment: Good

Hooks Edit

  • Colgrave hasn't spoken to his parents in five years, and as far as he knows, they have no idea of his whereabouts. He'd like to keep it that way, fearing that his father would try to press him back into the service of the church of the Silver Flame.
  • Colgrave carried on an affair with Astrae d'Phiarlan, a young dragonmarked scion of the House and one of its brightest rising stars - and then he left her in the lurch when he became concerned about the House's possible reaction to their relationship. Wherever she is, it's doubtful whether she's thinking of him fondly.

Kicker Edit

Colgrave is running from his past, feeling beset on all sides by pressures that he'd rather avoid confronting - but he's never been one to let petty concerns like that stop him from enjoying life or pursuing new interests.

Level 4 Edit

Approval 1 Edit

Approval from renau1g

  • Feats - it's technically called Superior Implement Training
  • Summary - AC should be 18, not 17
  • Summary - MBA should only be +5 to hit, not +6 (not a big deal, but the Accurate property only applies to it being an implement not a weapon)
  • Summary - Skills - please add Stealth here due to the racial bonus.

Minor things though, so approved

Great, thanks again r1! Fixed this stuff - cheers for the info on the Accurate property, I remember wondering about this but ending up uncertain. -Antithetist

Approval 2Edit

Approval from [Ladylaw]

Issue fixed. All fine by me.
