Grizzled Investigator: Dragoon FarrowEscaped FugitiveCharacter Sheet
; Undetermined; AC 24
I had a sterling reputation once. People respected me. I had a title, a career and a family. But that life is over.
A beautiful dame ended it.
Police work is a business and you never let business get personal. That's what they always tell you. Brush up against the seedy barnacles of a city's criminal underbelly, wash up before dinner. It never works that way. You develop angles and then you work them. It gets personal fast and things aren't black and white. Sometimes, to get a lead, you need a taste.
I know what you're thinking. Another corrupt guard. I didn't get into the job intending to live off bribes. I believe in justice. I believe in a system of laws. But I live in the real world. And I learned quickly that to catch the big fishes, you needed to get wet. I didn't cannonball in, but I did drown.
A beautiful dame did me in.
She had been a prolific assassin, and I had been tracking her down for three years. All I had to show for my work was a mangled line of corpses. Whenever I got close, she slipped from my grasp. There was talk that there was an information leak in the guard. Someone was feeding her our plans before we made our moves. I never thought it that it could have been me.
That beautiful dame got me good.
She drugged me one night. I awoke covered in the blood of the three whores I frequented in some bordello that perpetually owed me favors. That beautiful dame sat before me, her legs crossed, smiling at me. She set me up gorgeously. She wanted me to know that she had done it. She wanted me to remember her while I rotted in a jail cell. No one would have believed my side of the story. I could hardly believe it myself.
That beautiful dame was my wife. And I'm going to make that bitch pay some day soon.P.O.I.:
Sir Drelcor Farrow was once a distinguished dragoon for the city guard until he was framed by his wife, Lady Susan Farrow, for the murder of numerous prostitutes in the Red District. He is a competent investigator, interrogator and combatant, capable of utilizing a number of underworld talents to work his cases. He is a master fencer. Farrow is a fugitive from justice and should be considered armed and dangerous.
