Louis (Fraz-Urb’Luu the Prince of Deception)Gender;
He doesn't like to count, appears to be in his late twenties Appearance; Demon form
: In his demon forms he retains his wings but at a smaller, just enough for him to glide short distances, true flying is impossible, best he could manage would be to jump nearly half again as far as normal. He is always accompanied by silver chain around his neck with the one piece of his staff he has managed to find clasped at the middle on his chest along with other pieces of jewelry, rings, bracelets; all of them silver. Apart from these obviously demon attributes he looks much like a human in their late twenties. Louis has a habit of changing his hair color every decade or so just to throw people off. Human Form
: In his human for Louis is stuck much in the fashion of his all time favorite author. He often wears shirt, tie, and vest with a coat of some description, nice slacks and shoes to match. Never to be parted with his silver, Louis has developed a penchant for tooling his clothing with silver filigree in various patterns and designs. Often in human form he turns his hair white to thumb his nose at their concept of old people with white hair.True Form
of Fraz-Urb'luu in his true form Louis is a large beast over eighteen feet in height, despite his hunched posture. His muscular gorilla-like body is covered with short coarse hair of pale blue. His feet are broad and splayed, and his hands are large but the fingers relatively stubby and tipped with long, jagged silvered talons. Two vast batlike wings protrude from his back. His tail is long and hairless with a gray base fading to a razor sharp base. His head is bald and gray-skinned, save for tufts of ragged hair hanging from his jowls. Large ragged ears protrude from the center of his skull to well above its pointed ridged peak. His eyes are relatively small but burn with cold blue light. Yet the most terrible aspect of his visage is his mouth which is overly large and filled with huge fangs which are also silvered.Race;
Tanar'ri Birth Circle;
Circle 8 Abilities; Smooth Tongue:
Has spent years talking to people of different languages and influencing them in any country at any time. He has learned not merely to communicate in any language but to make his voice sound as though he’s been speaking it all his life. Not the harsh translation that The gift of tongues” allows demons to speak.Sojutsu:
Having spent a very long time in the urn with nothing but the Ichor Lance, he practiced with it, and he practiced and he practiced eventually coming to a basic understanding of Sojutsu; which means the way of the spear.Scent:
Because of his hunting, Louis has developed his sense of smell extensively. He can distinguish between the scent of different humans and even track them by their smell. Demons are harder as most have very little scent. Powers; Thirty Pieces of Silver:
Louis has always been fond of silver because he is a silver claimer. Silver claiming is the ability manipulate and wield silver, either as a weapon or for other purposes. It is a very versatile skill, as it can be used for anything from a weapon to a rope to stop oneself from falling. This is the real prize he bribed Judas Iscariot, not money.Blood Memories:
Louis doesn't just hunt for fun. He hunts to gain knowledge. If Louis gets even a drop of your blood, he will have access to all of your memories. Everyone’s memories are linked to their DNA allowing you to trade them with other people, this is called blood memories.Phantasm:
Louis can alter reality around himself to project images of whatever he chooses into the minds of his victims, the stronger willed the victim the harder it is, but after centuries of practice a human who presents a challenge is a rare thing. One which Louis would relish by trying over and over again. In conjunction with this, Louis has spent so much time "creating" one phantasm of his pet hell hound
that it has become real. This is the only thing he has been able to summon sense his powers got sealed with the destruction and scattering of his staff.Class You Teach or Plan to Teach;
Fraz-Urb’luu will teach Thy Will Be Done” in his classroom “The Hallow’s Heart”. Thy Will Be Done is an introduction to the arts of deception. You will learn how to defend yourself against deception. Others should not be in control of your actions. You will learn how to study humans and learn their secrets, desires, even their fears, and use this to influence their decisions without the need for possession. The better you become at influence the less direct approach you need. You think your reading this class advertisement because you decided to for yourself? You clearly need this class.Possible Club Interest;
The S&M club sounded like fun. Someone mentioned a torture club which Id be game to help. And I’d be interested in a club, for advanced students, that would take supervised training runs to earth and “practiced” their skills with teachers there in case something goes wrong or some meddler tries to hinder us. Personality
; Louis started his life as a very arrogant demon. Not much has changed. He acts out trying to prove he’s still young at heart, assuming he had one. Louis has one goal for being a teacher; to prevent demons from being banished the way he was. He believes its stupid and a waste of talent to lose a demon like that. Louis wants to give as many demons as possible the ability to survive on their own in their planes as well as the human plane. This is the only reason he has agreed to teach at S.I.N. Louis is also anxious to get back the pieces of his staff and as such believes teaching is a waste of time. He has agreed to teach and sworn to never miss a class but that doesn't mean if he’s found a particularly good clue he won’t want to skip class and go run it down. By nature a very anti-social demon he is trying to overcome that and believe that all the other teachers are in fact not out for his throne, just as he is not after theirs.Background Information;
The demon Fraz-Urb’luu, or Louis as he prefers to be called. Is a very old Demon. He is one of the first children of Amadeus himself after the Great War of the heavens and the Demons were banished to the Abyss, before time was time.
The demon prince Fraz-Urb'luu was one of the first tanar'ri to rise to power in the Abyss after the fall of the obyriths. Although he was never the most powerful of the demon princes, his vast intellect has enabled him to outlive countless rivals. Fraz-Urb'luu eventually mastered the art of summoning, to the point where he could forcibly summon other demon lords into his court in order to humiliate and degrade them for his own amusement. Fraz-Urb'luu's staff, which granted him control of every aspect of his layer, discouraged any retaliatory strikes against him from his revenge-seeking "guests," so they conspired for a more subtle punishment.
These demon lords fashioned an artifact called the Ichor Lance, which they gave to the mad archmage Zagig Yragerne. Zagig summoned Fraz-Urb'luu and tried to use the lance on the Prince of Deception. Fraz-Urb'luu seized the lance and used his power to disjoin the artifact. However, as a side effect of destroying the lance, the demon prince lost most of his innate magical powers, which enabled Zagyg to imprison the demon prince in a bas-relief in the dungeon beneath Castle Greyhawk.
This caused Fraz-Urb'luu to search for another way to “fight”. For centuries, many adventurers in the dungeon were destroyed after speaking to this imprisoned form as Fraz-Urb'luu learned he still had a few magic gifts left. He learned deception and cunning so he ferreted secrets out of his victims. The demon recently managed to escape by tricking a wizard and a cleric into freeing him. Immediately after this Fraz-Urb'luu walks the earth for a time, he stumbles upon Judas Iscariot and tricks him into betraying Jesus. Satan, suitably impressed retitled him and gave him back his station in the 8Th circle. Since then, Fraz-Urb'luu has spent much of his time eliminating other demon lords who moved into his territory with him away and searching for his staff.
Fraz-Urb'luu has sired two types of Demon. First are the Erinyes, in Greek mythology both Homer and Virgil refer to them furies. They are his torturers in the Underworld, typically three in all, one vengeance, one pain, and one spite. Fraz-Urb’luu also created, The Parasi-nosfero, a pure image of himself. The human call them vampires and thanks to Bram Stocker, most humans believe they are mere fiction, allowing Fraz-Urb’luu to walk upon the earth and “hunt” as he pleases.
