Chesten Gloyne[GMC]

Post by Slimcreeper » Sun Jan 26, 2020 1:47 am

Description/ Context: PR 2 Novice Wierd Scientist. Female dwarf. Promethean.

Gloyne is fascinated with the sea and all that we do not understand about its creatures. She believes that by understanding more about sea life, she will be able to push human potential. In the interest of that noble goal, she is always on the lookout for an opportunity to gain funds for her research and expeditions. In appearance, she is of average stature for a dwarf, with dark hair and eyes. When she went through LGF her mouth widened into an almost frog-like appearance. She is fantastically, magnificently, almost erotically ugly.

Her family has been fishermen for time immemorial in Cornwall. She has begged, stolen or borrowed both the education and the world travel she's required to achieve her current skill level, and believes there is no ceiling to what she can learn from the depths of the sea. She has simply bowled over anyone who presented her sex as an objection to her ambitions. Despite her time spent away from her homeland, she is deeply connected to her family and heritage. In fact she is one of the few fluent speakers of Cornish who learned it as a first language.

Going for the Deep One here? Just a picky point, barding is horse armor.

I imagined it as strips reinforcing a cloth backing under her respectable clothing. And light area is a lantern fish arm attached to a sessile lump of flesh that she tosses up to the ceiling where it sticks and the aquatic sight is a strangely organic lensed set of goggles and the mudskippers are slug-like fish that squirm all over whatever it is she’s cleaning.

You know what tentacles are 🦑

I’m thinking of using her as a GM player character to explore the enchanting side of things. Don’t want the players to know that about her though … I guess we’ll see how open–minded they are!
