Tu’an-Yao, the Scholar from the Viswa order

The Rabbitohs are peaciful rabbit-men from Verdant Valley, a flourish and almost self-sufficient Freeland nearby the Obsidian Valley and the Four Moon Tower, a Demiurge place as beautiful as misterious. They are easily recognized for their big, powerful haunches, that they use to jump and kick and run with prowess; big big-pupiled eyes, many times on albino pink; big cowls with big noses and nostrils that allow them to distinguish smells (with training) and big ears, some times a fifty from his full height, with is a lot as many of them are from the size of a small man, not counting the ears.

However, they never closed their eyes for the suffering and evil outside the Valley. Here and there all around you can see Rabbitohs Scholars, Warriors, Sages, Rogues and Monks helping the free peoples. And Tu’an-Yao is one of those Scholars: when he finished his scholastic training, where he learned some mind techniques with his knowledge, he was sent around as a representative from his order, the Viswa, to gather knowledge the Rabbitohs could use for improve their lives and those nearby the Verdant Valley.

He saw all kind of people and learned lot of things. He even found some comrades, like Shukul, the Crystal-blade heir; and Sheila, the Rogue that allied with them after some events. As he’s not exactly a fighter, he thought it was a good idea to gather aside Shukul, Sheila and others.

Tu’an-Yao is average-sized for an Rabbitoh (165cm height, including 30cm ears). He’s a little too much chubby for a Rabbitoh (that normally looks more like a hare-man than a rabbit-man), but he’s nimbler than he could look. He always dresses on blue light fabrics. His big pupiled eyes are on aquamarine, and he has a grey spot over his right eye. He has only some parchment on tubes, with records from his errands and what he learned from them, and a small chakram, the only weapon he uses as defense.

Tu’an-Yao tries to solve everything without resorting on violence, and trust his own mind: not only on his knowledge, but his skill as an ambassador and negotiator, and on his mind powers. He doesn’t cope with injustice and is a sucker for the weaker. This can even be a very big problem, as Rabbitohs are known as very dangerous fighters when put against all odds, and there’s a burning flame hidden on every Rabbitohs eyes, and Tu’an-Yao isn’t exception.

Natva, the Skunk-Man Warrior

Born a slave, his family and clan was sold as slave to one of the Masters. When he proved himself strong enough in combat when he was five, he was trained as a gladiator, surviving lots of robeats and fights, even when the robeast was really bigger than himself.

In his heart, however, he still wanted freedom and revenge. He faked his loyalty to the Master because he knew about his power, but also used his fame to contact some rebels that was working to topple the Master.

With time, he grew as one of the favorite of the rabble, as he defeated enemies more and more powerful in the arenas. And his power and influence grew.

It was when Natva chose that the time had came to rise the people against the Master…

A rebellion that started and fell in a blink of eye.

Natva and his allies’ power and influence where less than nothing against the Artifacts and forbbiden knowledge the Master had.

Many of his allies had died, his blood mixing with the people that risen against the Master and was killed by example

Natva received a destiny worse than death,

On a very specially made ceremony, ready by the Master himself to gloat on his power, Natva was forced to drink from the Chalice of Changing, a very rare Artifact that is said was created by some god or by the Demiurges. The liquid on it, from a nauseating smell and even worse taste, made Natva pass through a very shameful, humiliating transformation, that turned him form the very powerful and vigorous gladiator to a Mephitum, a skunk-man.

Why, on the populace the Mephita where always saw as raiders and dishonarable rabble and scoundrels. Add on this that he was one of the leaders of the failed rebellion, and Natva fell in disgrace. And to worse even more, the Master declared Natva a Persona Non Grata, someone that could be humiliated, ashamed and even killed for anyone without consequence.

No wonder he ran away to the Wilderness Nexuses in shame, wander around withou any destiny, until he found a clan of Mephita scholars called the Speakers of Dead, that celebrated (and chastised) the lives of those recently deceased.

During months, he stayed with them, learning the Ways of the Mephita, how to fight and control the worst piece of his shameful transformation, the nauseating stink from his tail now turned into a weapon he could control. After that time, understanding what he was now, when the Speakers of Dead came to the Fartime Elysium, a Freeland where he could stay with Delaware, teaching what he could for those who needed to learn the combat arts.

And Natva now lives to protect his new home.

Delaware, the Shooter

All the Masters of Umdaar needs warriors and lieutenants and other lackey. Some came in the form of slaves, but some are taken under their wings from local people. There’s even those that legitly believes the Masters wants everyone’s wellbeing, and that slaves and rebels are subversive scroundels and culgels at large.

Delaware was one of those men.

From a family aligned with some of the Masters, he was trained since a child to be a soldier, until he became one of the Master’s many lieutenants, receiving orders straigth from himself, and receiving from him his Plasma Crossbow, that he skillfully used to kill ciminals and subversives.

That untli he saw the truth.

When he came back home from a common mission, he found it empty. Father, Mother, brothers… All gone. No message. No nothing.

He searched and searched all aroung the Dread Domain, when he found his father’s diary, and discovered his father wanted to tackle down the Master, as he know all the criminal horrors the Master did, how he use slaves and rebels (like Natva) on terrible experiments, how he throw children as staple to the laser-bears.

Disiluded and lost on himself, Delaware defected the Master, looking for his family.

If the Master was the one behind their abduction, certainly it would not reveal: Delaware always was strong, only his loyalty avoided him to rise an insurgency against the Master.

But there would have a chance that at least some of his family was safe under Archeonauts protections, or under the Freelands that fight against the Masters’ incursions.

With only his crossbow, he became a Soldier of Fortune, looking for clues for his family. Obviously, he got into Freelands and they discovered his past and, even under some (justified, to be honest) grudge, they accept (somewhat) him under their banners.

But, even helping the Freelands and Archeonauts, he is drive to find his family.

And, if the Master was his abductor, Delaware have a called shot for him
