Elf Fire Warlock, Worshiper of Bennu

Demigoddess of the Elements and Duality


Elycia is an Elven woman whose lithe form belies an unexpected strength developed from long hours spent hiking and exploring. She lacks the dextrous grace seemingly inherent to most Elves and has neither the skill nor practice to hide it well. Amongst Elves there is little about her which stands out, especially when compared to her more serene sister Saria. This has resulted in her being outspoken and brash around other Elves. Amongst other races, or when she’s around her element of Fire, she is even more more confident and comfortable. She always carries herself with the casual air of superiority common amongst Elves, though her outspoken and inquisitive nature makes her attitude less offensive. She never sits by idly and always steps forward when she believes her talents or opinions are called for.

Long strawberry-blonde hair frames her beautiful face, though she does little to care for it. Many years of outdoor activity have led Elycia to dress practically instead of elegantly, preferring clothing which allows for freedom of movement and resists wear and tear. Unlike her sister who believes in a blend of form and function, Elycia is just all about the function and couldn’t give two shits about “form.”

Semi-Divine Regeneration Heals 1D6×5 H.P. or S.D.C. every minute (four melees)
Demigoddess of Elements: Body of Fire/ Smoke Elycia’s connection to the element of fire allows her to transform her body into fire/ smoke without changing her outside appearance at all. While fire/ smoke, all physical attacks will pass harmlessly through her body. Energy (such as magical and psionic) attacks will do half damage. She can only use this once per day, for up to 1 minute per level. Can be activated in response to an attack as a “parry”, but only straight dice rolls are compared.
Demigoddess of Duality: Manifestation Can summon Saria as a transparent, ghostly spirit, tethered by silver cord to Elycia’s body. Only Elycia, psychics, children under 13, animals, and most supernatural creatures can see Saria. She can hover and fly (670 mph), is intangible, see the invisible, impervious to physical harm (including cold, heat, and energy), but vulnerable to magic and psionics. Saria can only communicate with Elycia; others need to use telepathy or empathy. If Saria is within 90ft, Elycia gains the benefits of Sixth Sense (+6 initiative, +2 parry, +3 dodge, cannot be surprised). She can only call her sister out three times per day, for up to 5 minute per level each time. If Saria “dies” the ability ends and Saria becomes the new dominant personality.
Demigoddess of Mania: One, Two, Three, Not It! Elycia can voluntarily relinquish control to her sister, forcing Saria to become the dominant personality. They still swap at Dawn. Whenever they swap the memories of what the other did are transferred also. This can be done at will, but takes one attack/ action to accomplish.

Special Powers/Skills Description Notes
Assistance Elycia may mentally ask for help from Saria, who will be able to provide assistance in the form of one skill or spell to be used immediately. Only usable 1×/ day.
Burning Life Fire damage is converted to healing. Cannot go above max H.P./ S.D.C.. Fire is soothing. Permanent due to Permanency Ward affixed/ sewn on body behind left ear.
Nightvision 60′
Fire Resistance Character, clothes, and armor are immune to normal fire. Magic fire does half damage. Automatic and constant.
Fire Sense 98% (62% +2%/ level) Sense presence, general direction and distance of fires. Campfire or bigger, 40 mile diameter. Raging forest fires and bigger, 100 mile diameter.
Heat Touch 98% (30% +5%/ level) Accurately sense air and surface temperatures, and changes in air temperature. Also touching charred remains and telling how recently it was active/hot (within 6D6 minutes). Also check a person’s body temp and tell if they have a fever.
Sense Elementals 98% (25% +5%/ level) Automatic if within 120ft. Can deliberately sense out to 240ft with a +20% bonus. Will always recognize other Warlocks and intuitively know the elemental force(s) they are aligned with. Can also sense an invisible elemental (including Air Elementals, Spirits of Light, and Jinn) at a flat 75% chance.
Summon Elemental 98% (5%/ level) Can attempt to summon a Lesser Fire Elemental once/ day. Requires two hours of concentration and chanting, a fire present (for focal point of concentration), and the fire element symbol scrawled on the floor in charcoal or in dirt/dust. +10% on a Ley Line, +20% at a Nexus. Halve the percentage to summon a Greater Elemental instead.

Insanity Notes
Multiple Personalities (?) Elycia shares this body with her sister, Saria. Both personalities are aware of each other but cannot communicate directly with each other. Each morning at dawn the two personalities swap. There are also several conditions which can force a change:

  1. Severe Shock or Trauma: An emotional shock such as seeing a brutal murder, seeing a friend or loved one killed or seriously injured, psionic, magic or drug induced hallucination, feeling completely helpless, or intense pain/torture.
  2. Incapacitation, Threat of Death, or Coma and Near Death: The other personality will take control, usually to try to escape death; +20% to save vs coma, but when the character snaps out of it, she’s the new personality.
  3. Hypnosis: 01-50% chance of calling forth Saria. If that roll fails, roll to see who takes random control (1-3 on 1D6 is Saria, 4-6 on 1D6 is Elycia). There is a 01-80% chance of bringing Elycia back into control when using hypnosis. Casual use of Hypnotic Suggestion to manipulate either Saria or Elycia has a 01-30% chance of randomly releasing one of the other personalities.
  4. Telepathic Probe: 01-65% chance of pulling out a specific personality when used for that purpose. If the roll fails, roll to see who takes random control (1-3 on 1D6 is Saria, 4-6 on 1D6 is Elycia). Once the personality is aware that a psionic probe is being used to suppress her and bring out a different personality, she gets a +4 to save vs psionic attack, and is likely to attack the psychic out to undermine her control. If she fails to make the saving throw vs psionic attack, there is a 01-80% chance of pulling forth the specific personality desired the second time it is tried.
  5. Possession: Since Elycia has multiple personalities inside her head already, she gets an additional +4 to save vs possession, but the attempt is likely to unleash Saria.
  6. Mind Wipe (psionic): Whenever a Mind Wipe is being used, the current, dominant personality will retreat into the subconscious, automatically breaking the effect of the Mind Wipe and bringing out the other personality.

Saria ran over and knelt beside Elycia’s body. She clasped her sister’s hand tightly with one hand and desperately shook her with the other. “Elycia. Elycia! No…” Tears welled up and made her vision blurry as Saria looked at the too-still form of her sister. “Please, no,” she pleaded. She was too late. Saria stopped shaking Elycia and pulled her hand close to her. “Please, Goddess,” she whispered in prayer to Bennu. “Please don’t let me lose my sister.” She closed her eyes tightly in prayer and in sorrow, but it didn’t stop the tears.

Elycia woke up in an unfamiliar bed. She felt tired and disoriented. “How did I get here?” She wondered. She sat up but winced as the motion suddenly made her head hurt, like having a bad hangover. Carefully she looked around. It took her a moment to recognize where she was. “This is Saria’s room. What…?” She asked aloud to the empty room. There was no sign of her sister. Slowly she rose out of the bed to stand up. She took only two steps before she tripped and fell flat on the floor. “Ow fuck fuck fuck,” she swore as she lay there, letting the throbbing in her head subside. “Saria’s the clumsy one, not me. I must be really fucked up.”

As she pulled herself up she caught sight of herself in a full-length mirror on the other side of the room. Except it wasn’t her reflection in the mirror. It was her sister’s, Saria. “What?” She said aloud, and the mirror’s reflection mouthed the word in sync. Elycia stood up and watched the reflection mimic exactly what she was doing. She looked away and at her own body, realizing now that the mirror wasn’t playing some sort of trick. This was her sister’s body, and she was in it! She looked back at the unfamiliar reflection questioningly, and silently mouthed “What-the-fuck?”

Saria read the diary entry to herself again. It was clearly Elycia’s writing. In her diary. And it hadn’t been there when she went to sleep. Her sister was alive! But, somehow, alive within her own body? That explained why she remembered going to bed but woke up two days later. What Elycia wrote in the diary was incredible. Vulgar, but incredible. Was this Bennu answering her prayer? Saria picked up the quill and began to write a new entry, in reply to her sister.

The Priests and Priestesses of Bennu couldn’t help. They prayed and tried to see the evidence of Bennu’s works but their prayers were unanswered and there was nothing they could see which indicated a divine miracle. Still, they tried to comfort her. “This is Bennu’s will,” they told her.

“How could this possibly be something Bennu would fucking do to someone?” Elycia demanded.

“Bennu the Phoenix is the Goddess of Rebirth. If you are right then She has blessed you with renewed life. Why in this manner is not for us mortals to know. It is either that, or…” They trailed off, unsure how to say to the Fire Warlock’s face that she may be crazy. “Have you tried talking to a Psychic Healer, or a Mind Mage? Maybe they can offer an… alternate answer.”

“No. I’m not crazy,” Elycia asserted back at them. “I remember that I was dying. I still have my link to the Element of Fire. My sister’s desperate prayer had to have been answered. I’ll be damned if I let a shit-sucking psychic mess around in a head that’s already too full.” She took a breath and then added, “I’m not crazy.”

“Then you need to accept that this is simply Bennu’s will.”

“Fuck,” Elycia simply stated in response.

Finally out on the sea again, Saria let the calmness of sailing on the open water relax her. Now that they were fully underway there was less to do and she could just enjoy the open sea. She had convinced the captain of the Rebellious Harry to bring her aboard. Having a Water Warlock on this trip wasn’t really necessary but she convinced him it couldn’t hurt. Saria was eager to at least do a little sailing – she loved being on the water. Her sister didn’t care for it thought. Elycia always got nervous and anxious when out to sea so Saria had promised her that she would only take them on a short voyage.

This was so weird, having to share time with her sister in her body. But it meant her sister was alive again, at least in a way, and she was thankful to Bennu for that. It had taken a while for the two of them to get used to this, and they were still adjusting. Saria would wake up sometimes with wicked hangovers, or her whole body sore from whatever her sister had done the day before, or even worse that she deliberately didn’t think about right now (but blushed anyway as the memory partially surfaced). But it was getting better.

“Hey, watch out!” One of the crew yelled at Saria, bringing her out of her daydream. She looked up just as the boom of the mainsail swung over to her and smacked her in the head. It knocked her out cold. When she came to she was underwater and sinking. The water was dark, which was weird because it was just daytime. She was in her element though, and quickly enough she gained her bearings and swam back to the surface. As she approached the surface she could start to see a bright, flickering light source and hear muffled shouts and yelling.

She broke the surface of the water and gasped for air, throwing her head and long hair back as she did so. Saria looked around and saw a scene of chaos straight from her nightmares. All around her was ship debris, and more than a few other sailors in the water – some moving, some still. The ship itself was completely engulfed in flames and sinking. Much of the crew were in lifeboats, yelling over the noise of the conflagration as they tried to recover crewmembers from the water. A large creature of some kind was just at the edge of her vision, swimming away from the ship and lifeboats as if it were injured or afraid. It was too far away for her to tell what it might be.

She swam over to the nearest lifeboat, confused. The first mate was pulling a sailor out of the water when she came into his view. She waved at him but he scowled back at her. As she swam closer she told him, “Pull me up. I can help.”

Instead he glared at her angrily. “Haven’t you already done enough?” He demanded. One of the other crew hesitantly pulled her into the boat, then moved away from her once she was on board. “Just sit there and shut up while we clean up your mess,” he angrily told her. She opened her mouth to protest and to ask what happened but a quick glare from him made her close it again.

“What did Elycia do?” She wondered.

“It’s been weeks! I fucking said I’m sorry!” Elycia yelled at the journal as she threw it across the room. She had just woken up and like any morning now, or anytime she comes to, the first thing she did was read Saria’s latest entry. Saria did the same. It was how they were able to communicate. Saria’s latest update told her that apparently no ship Captain would hire her anymore, or even let her on their boats. Word of what Elycia had done to the Rebellious Harry had spread everywhere it seemed. Saria was pretty upset. “What whiney bitches,” Elycia said. “You burn down one fucking boat and everyone gets all pissy.”

She took a calming breath and sighed. That whole situation had gone south fast. “Shit. I wasn’t even supposed to be there,” she pleaded to no-one again. Saria had every right to be upset – Elycia had fucked this up royally. And they both had to deal with the consequences. This was their life now. Like it or not, they needed to try and get along.
