Characters of Cimmeria: Gregor

Gregor

Gregor is one of the four Dragovinian Enforcers restored to his mortal form by Apollo. He traveled with Sivirdm, Stanton, Wu, and Sergeant Korjak to recover the four missing pieces of the Druid’s Prophecy for the Rebellion. During this journey Gregor proved to be a ferocious combatant, but often attempted to solve problems with diplomacy rather than violence. After recovering the Prophecy pieces Gregor and his companions parted ways with the Rebellion. They traveled into the east to reunite the Orc tribes. Continue reading

Characters of Cimmeria: Jittehalong

Jittehalong.JPG

Jittehalong is the current Queen of the Amazons and vassal of King Jevaninada II. Queen Jittehalong is a warrior of great power and strength, worthy of recognition by the gift of Dragovinian immortality, but she has rejected this offer time and time again. Many Xorians worry that this is a sign that Jittehalong harbors feelings of resentment towards King Jevaninada. In spite of these concerns, Jittehalong remains loyal to her liege.

Jittehalong’s mother, Tiatha, lived on a farm at the Continue reading

Characters of Cimmeria: Darudanano

When searching for Dungeons and Dragons character images sometimes I find something that has the right feel, but ultimately looks nothing like the character. Darudanano is a Dragovinian who wears extended brass claws and has a floating shield that follows him around. He is not a human with a curved blade. But the image still felt right to me and I have used it to represent Darudanano ever since.

Darudanano

The elder brother of Tagenadi, Darudanano entered the military at a young age. Tagenadi often looked up to this older brother and dreamed of joining up after him. Daru spoke against Tagu’s joining, but his little brother did anyways. Tagenadi turned a blind eye to the war crimes of the Xorians while Darudanano saw theses acts as… necessary. Daru’s best friend, Devanane, absolutely reveled in his ability to rape and pillage the women and homes of those the Xorian army defeated.

With the success of their families, soon Daru and Devanane were slated to be Dragovinianized. Tagenadi supported it, but Daru was reluctant. After the process, Daru and Deva came home changed. They were excessively cruel to the non-Dragovinians in Daru’s family. Tagenadi realized his error and arranged for his parents and sister, Tanarenena, to be taken out of the country. Unfortunately the plan failed. Tagu and his parents were captured. Daru and Deva smirked at Tagu’s weakness as he was taken off to his sentencing.

Since his separation from his family, Daru has risen swiftly through the ranks of the enforcers. He now commands a seat in the King’s own combat group. Darudanano’s fighting style allows him to protect King Jevaninada II from nearly all attacks, either taking the blows himself or even turning strikes back against a foe. On the offensive, Daru uses a set of brass talons to strengthen his own Dragovinian claws. He attacks with speed and power, draining his enemy’s energy with every successful blow.

Characters of Cimmeria: Ashabodai


Ashabodai was Queen of the Amazons and a powerful Dragovinian in the Xorian Empire. After the previous Queen Anajakaze died, Ashabodai ascended the throne by besting her competitors through skill of arms as is tradition. She played the subordinate matriarch to King Jevaninada II during her reign, rarely challenging out or contradicting him. During the Second Alliance War she led her Amazon warriors against the soldiers of the Alliance. Ashabodai perished during the Battle of Phoenix at the hands of Logan the Warlock. She was succeeded by Queen Jittehalong, who is not a Dragovinian but still serves the Xorian King.

Ashabodai was born to an Amazon of noble bearing during the reign of Queen Anajakaze Continue reading

Characters of Cimmeria: Hektor Rackgard

Another PC coming at you! This character is played by my friend who goes by Middle_Snu on the Internet. We worked together on writing his backstory so he deserves equal credit for what you see here.

Hektor

Hektor Rackgard is a powerful wizard and a key figure in the Alliace and the Exiles that split off from the Alliance, secretly maintaining a place in both groups for a time. Hektor’s magical expertise lies in summoning, shapeshifting, scrying, and quick elimination of foes through a number of offensive but not necessarily lethal means.

King Jevaninada II leads the Xorian people both as their monarch and as the living avatar of Blendegad’s divine might. Jevaninada II grew up under the feminist regency of his mother, Queen Anajakaze.

Jevaninada spent twenty years undoing his mother’s reforms and spreading his condition to those he deemed worthy within Xoria. Over the last five years, King Jevaninada led an invasion into Eastern Cimmeria against the Second Alliance. Continue reading
