l'Aquile Lore: Dagra

Wed Mar 20, 2019, 8:27 AM
(Remember, Lontra accent is some odd mix of Italian and Scandinavian. Also, multi-syllabic words that begin with a vowel have to repeat the first syllable and has a "da-doo, da-doo" rhythm. And I think I've got an angle to include the Lovecraftian elements that inspired his character.)

Dagra


Oh, hello-a there, friends! I'm-a Dag-a-ra of Dun-a-wich Bevy. Yes, most-a ottotter folkses don't live-a this far from the rivers, correct. But what-a can I say? Dag-a-ra is-a rebel, VERY correct.

I came-a from the Dun-a-wich Bevy...that's what-a you bald folkses call "family". Dun-a-wich Bevy's a very old-a bevy livin' far ininland. I was-a the son of-a very gifted Magio...ottotter folkses magician, who calls-a upupon the power of-a the Swift King. Through-a this, we can-a control the powers-a of the natural world. It's-a somethin' we ottotter folkses have been-a able to do for-a centuries since-a Revoloce led-a us to Delsud!

Though, I was-a ununusually curious on-a the matters of othother things. Like-a ololder things, stuff-a that my fellow ottotters found rather...questionable, correct? So, they-a forbade me from-a doing my research. I...wound-a up exexiled from-a my bevy. Not-a seein' ananother way, I ventured out-a to the lands outside-a my bevy's rivers, to-a the lands of-a the bald folkses, pointy folkses, wolf folkses, and-a big folkses. I travelled-a as far as an ottotter can, studyin' old-a ways before what-a you call-a the Exexitium Magnum. I...did-a not find much, sadly. So, I travelled to-a the Pearl Necklace, passin' over-a the Sirene kingdoms. No happy feelings between-a our peoples, very, VERY correct.

Eveventually, I came-a to the Black Pearl Island, Nera. Afafter esescapin' the...crazy folkses who live there, I found-a a very old temple to Ferro and-a covered it-a in the foliage of the jungle! Problem-a solved, correct! And-a what luck! It-a had a library! With-a books I had-a no knowledge ever-a existed! Surely, this-a place could answer-a my myriad-a of questions!

That-a was interrupted when-a these bald folkses came in. Meaning the crazy folkses could-a get in!

...Ah well, might as-a well move to the next-a place. Even if-a they DO have a Sirene. I would-a say what-a she is...but I can't-a repeat it in-a polite company.

While preparing for the next l'Aquile Lore chapter, just remembering my voice template for the otter-person sorcerer-cleric. This sadistic, super-powered squirrel.

l'Aquile Lore: Adva

Tue Mar 19, 2019, 7:19 PM
(She and Dagra tied in the poll, so they're the next ones...alphabetically. And if it seems completely lacking in self-awareness...that's the point, my friends!)

Adva

Behold, the result of centuries of selective, Sirene breeding. The eldest child of the royal family of Canitalat, the greatest kingdom under the waves! I was to be the ruler of our proud kingdom, leading it into a shining future!

To further prepare myself for it? I was trained by the ultimate Sirene Masters, who mastered our elemental magic. I worked nonstop to build my body to physical perfection and, eventually, managed to harness control of earth, wind, water, and fire!

...Then my family lost their minds. They called me "arrogant", "dumb", and "have no idea what hardships actually are"! ME! Can you believe it? And, to add insult to injury, my sister, who's a manipulative jerk by the way, convinced mother and father to do the unthinkable to me! They told me I would have to...LIVE AMONG THE DIRT MEN UNTIL I LEARNED WHAT HUMILITY WAS!

I know, it's a terrifying prospect! Going from the greatest civilization in the world to people who still think black powder weapons are a pretty neat idea! I thought I was going to die! Oh sure, my prospects seemed to go up when I found out that a renowned alchemist was going to look after me. The legendary Fire Flower of Vomnorden, Johann Falsch, who would doubtless shower me with gold and glory I rightfully deserve...

But he turned out to be some grumpy lush who spends half his time drinking himself blind! And he refuses to give me prestige! Some claptrap about "making too much gold would devalue it and wreck the economy"! Why should I care about that? And does he show me respect? No, he calls me "useless", "dumb", "fish", and many other mean names! And now I'm stuck with him!

We seemed to find a means of obtaining revenue, though; adventuring for hire. Someone has a job and we do it. Moving to Genoard, we hoped to find some good job prospects. We even found this Dario fellow who offered his assistance. He had some small skill in archery, so I agreed to tolerate his presence. We went to...relieve the local strongman of ill-gotten gold while also lining our own pockets as well. Unfortunately...I forgot what the signal was and we were attacked by their guards. We were captured and about to be executed, then suddenly, we were executed by Tarquinius Firo's soldiers. Then the Seafoam Lords protected their descendant in the form of Dario's foster brother! Like a perfect gentleman, he offered to take us with him to Dimariano, the glittering Sapphire of Delsud! How could I refuse!

And my skills have proven utterly invaluable. These dirt men would have been dead three times over. But do they show appreciation for it? Not in the slightest! Oh, how difficult it is to be shunned for how amazing you are. It's a lonely life...

Don't give me that look, Dagra. You're adorable, but I won't stand for being looked at like that.

April Goodeve

Mon Mar 18, 2019, 10:43 AM
While working on the updates for the characters I call the Metas for Prince of Heart, I stopped and thought about the fourth one: April Goodeve. Originally...she was kind of the weak point of the group. She could fly, but not much else considering the unique powers of the others and...she was originally PRETTY bland, made mostly as a girlfriend for their leader, Scott Highflier.

Further installments though, a personality started to emerge: she was the only one of the four who had a relatively normal life, so she was the Only Sane One. She'd be the one remarking how strange something is or have a snarky remark about their life. Then I had the idea of her powers evolving, her flight turning out to be part of wind-manipulation.

Then a friend of mine had a suggestion: what if she was a Blitzball enthusiast?
I already had a design update for her...but I went back to re-redesign her to make her look a bit more sporty.

April Goodeve by Tohokari-Steel

Behold, the TRUE waifu of Prince of Heart. A design that I absolutely ADORE.

Currently, the poll's tied with Adva and Dagra.
...Reminds me, Lontra have different terms than most people use for the various races.
Selvaggi (the giant, wild me): Big Folkses
Mazzamuriello (elves): Pointy Folkses
Humans: Bald Folkses
Zannalupo: Wolf Folkses
Sirene: can't be repeated in polite company
