Faction Membership


He is the one who is willing to make the hard call, to get blood on his hands, to do what is necessary when no one else is willing to do so. Detached, for one reason or another, The Beast can be cold, ruthless, and without mercy. Sometimes charismatic, sometimes distant, sometimes with claws out, and sometimes silent, but always a predator.

Archetype Roster Concept 

Someone has to do the things that need to be done, and that's you. Some think you're cruel, or savage, or a sociopath. You know what you really are: Necessary.

Role in The Last Road

He was born in Sanctuary, one of the clean. As a meanie, he worked in the kitchens preparing meals and stoking the fires, keeping them going. He was strong, and fierce, and he took no bullying from the other kids. He had a penchant for flame, and started with fire eating as a trick to perform for others in the kitchens. He made his first set of poi out of some old chains, bits of leather, and balls of tightly wound material that would hold a flame. He began spinning fire at night after meals were over. He grew up to be athletic, and talented, and that talent was noticed. He was trained to be a performer and a Companion, his natural animal charisma an advantage in that area. He is an animal caged -- his body not his own, not free to leave the Sanctuary for fear of contamination, and sometimes literally bound in chains for the pleasure of others. Some enjoy the power in the dancer and his fire. Some like to see him chained. Few know what he might be capable of if he ever decided to slip the leash.

These are just some ideas. I am always happy to come up with additional reasons for character connections, so feel free to inquire.

  • Fortunate - He is one of the clean and pure, of strong and athletic form.
  • Companion - He will perform for those who have the tokens to claim his company.
  • Fire Performer - He is a performer. He spins fire using poi, staves, whips, and other accoutrements, dances, breathes, and swallows flame.
  • Beast in Chains - There are those who delight in his wildness, and others who like to bind the powerful man in chains. Either way, he is a captive of the gilded cage.

Beast Kit.jpg

Kit (The Last Road)

Kit has always been a Scavenger. His father had been a Scavenger. He knew nothing of his mother. She'd left his father when he was too young to remember, and his father never spoke of her. He grew up in Sanctuary, and used his quickness to sneak in and out of places and obtain the things that people needed. He liked the challenge of sourcing specific things rather than just going out and taking whatever he could find. That lead him to get into his share of trouble, but then, trouble was what kept life interesting.

Cavalier (The Last Road)

Fortunate Artisan
Cavalier and Phoenix share a mother, though they have different fathers. Where Phoenix was sent to the kitchens, Cavalier joined those who made and mended clothing. As he grew older, he took on the role of an Artisan and uses whatever cloth and fibers he can get ahold of to create clothing. He can weave cloth, himself, and often designs his own patterns for making everything from trousers and shirts to finery worn by the Fortunate. He has a stall in the Fortunate Bazaar where he sells his goods to those who have the Lux to afford it. He often employs Scavengers to bring him back interesting buttons, baubles, and decorative items that he can add to his creations.
