    The Vernal Family 



  • Combat Pragmatist: Rhoslyn rules-lawyered the SHIT out of Gaia's Heaven or Hell, and has bitten the tip of someone's dick off mid-combat when the opportunity presented itself.
  • Cool Sword: Guindisalvus is an Ancestral Weapon made of soulsteel that can grow or shrink, confers spells of light and darkness, and kills unworthy wielders.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: Sun-kissed tan skin, bright red hair.
  • Fertile Feet: When barefoot. He doesn't have much control over it.
  • Gender Bender: Rhoslyn goes by Ross while male and Rhos while female.
  • Gun Nut: He has a replica of Charlston Heston's armory as a small personal armory.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: Ruthless slaughtering of NPC's, casual elimination of bad guys, occasionally blasting people into permanent orbit...
  • Jerkass: Rhoslyn is a dick. Examples?
    • Spikes the drinks of his mistress and a friend of hers with illegal lust potion, then dumps the mistress seconds before she gets dragged off to what she imagined would kill her.
    • Tells the wife of a friend about his friend's affairs just to sleep with her
    • Keeps captive Seelie Knights on leashes, and regularly skins them, bleeds them, breaks their minds, and otherwise abuses them for the lulz and profit. Note that faeries are immortal.
  • Kissing Cousins: With his cousin Akasha, the current leader of the Winter Court and Unseelie Court.
  • Knife Nut: He carries an irrational number of knives at ay given time, made of different materials to kill different things.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Fast, tough, good with weapons and magic, and an [[Determinator iron will]].
  • Parental Incest: Both with his mother and his older daughters, not by his choice.
  • The Pornomancer: Rhoslyn gets a lot of tail, both PC and NPC, and has induced orgies.
  • Refuge in Audacity: When given the opportunity to help rebel forces capture the city of Puerto Diablo, Rhoslyn's idea of help was to throw a giant outlaw rock concert, passing out drugs and looting implements while multiple people - himself included - played protest songs and used mind-control powers to start a riot.
  • Sword and Gun: Moonblade and magelock. Alternately, moonblade and Magic Wand
  • The Unfettered: Rhoslyn has very clear goals in mind, and acts accordingly.









    The Patrons 







  • Beware the Nice Ones: Polite, soft-spoken, will blast you with lightning.
  • Incurable Cough of Death: Still keeps going, but tends to get racked by coughs and cough up blood.
  • Mighty Glacier: Casually cuts mostly through trees, survived being shot in the face and exploded violently by one of Rhoslyn's spells. His bum knee keeps him from moving fast.
  • Old Master: Not many bold atheist human paladins live to the age of seventy.





  • All Guitars Are Stratocasters: averted; Aveline's guitar is a Fender Jaguar.
  • Beauty Is Bad: Aveline has far less respect for anybody who is "artificially" beautiful. In fact, Aveline never uses any makeup, seeing it only for sluts and whores.
  • Brother-Sister Team: Aveline is half of one (Thurgood is the other)
  • Friendly Sniper: Aveline snipes well; she is also much more social than her big brother Thurgood.
  • Gamer Chick: Aveline plays Warhammer 40,000, has at least 2,000 points of Imperial Guard and she's fairly good at it (she usually beats Thurgood).
  • Gun Nut: Aveline can look at a firearm and usually tell what model it is.
