Clarissa GM Information

From DQWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Clarissa d'Ornay is a slightly short, compactly muscular (5'8"/114lbs) young elven woman, with shoulder length auburn hair, an enchanting face, and extensive tattooing. Her natural PB of 21 has been increased by a variety of blessings to 24 for most observers and 26 for Elves and Fae.

In her work-a-day life, Clarissa is furnished with beautiful garments by the best seamstresses in Sanctuary and can avail herself of a range of fashionable outfits suited to the formality and intimacy of her engagements.

On adventure, Clarissa is armed with a serrated hand-and-a-half made of black wood and carries a number of daggers, with a similarly pointy or jagged look to them. She is generally armoured either in suit of mundane full plate, a patched set of Guild leathers, a tight-fitting fur cat-suit, or a shimmering chamsong-style evening dress (Prot. 6) for formal wear.

Visible Value

Clarissa's everyday garments are simple and (somewhat) tasteful, while all the time betrayal their exquisite workmanship and appalling cost to educated eye. Her full combat attire comes to about 80,000sp (Guild Valuation) of weapons, armour, amulets, invested, and potions, through none of the items are overtly magical or ostentatious.

(Note - almost the entirety of Clarissa's direct reward for her service to the Governor of Sanctuary has appeared in the form of filmy garments, "party supplies", and lavishly furnished apartments. "Kitty Cat" thereby annoys his wife, supports local traders, and completely fails to lose with any real currency on his latest "investment" at the same time.)
