Strix SkaldCharacter SheetDescription & Background
Although most strix are feared and reviled, those of the Golden Cliffs hold a very different reputation. They are prized for their exotic beauty and delicate voices, traits gained from a mix of harpy blood that fetch a good price in the flesh trade. Speculators often hunt the southern isle in search of eggs or young to steal from the vanishing tribe. Aria was older than the typical capture; usually trainers prefer chicks who won't remember the taste of freedom. But her new mistresses were free with their whips; after a few months of beatings they were certain they'd broken Aria's spirit. They watched, smug in their superiority, as she learned to cooperate and master the arts of a Red House courtesan.
She was merely patient, though, biding her time and playing at the role of simpering songbird, gathering more knowledge than her fool captors realized as she waited for the time to strike. The opportunity came at the end of her training. She was less guarded at sea, en route to her buyer. The crew didnít understand the import of her wings and the navigator was driven by his lust to visit the strange girl that languished in the hold. A bit of flattery, a touch of magic and a quick murder left her ready to flee - except the daft, lecherous bastard hadn't brought the key as usual. By the time she'd worked herself free the ship had spent a night of aimless wandering, and Aria found herself caught with the rest in the storm. Personality
Intense, bold, daring, narcissistic, decisive, and playful, Aria has an unbreakable spirit and a constant delight in the world around her, from a good thermal on a cloudless night to the rigorous satiation of her own sexuality. Unlike others she is happy to be on the island, rid of the Red House and away from the claustrophobic stench of the city. If there are a few dangers and the odd quirk, they are a small price to pay for freedom. Sexuality
Aria is bisexual, although she views the sexes differently: women are more prized for companionship while men have a more purely carnal purpose. Formally trained in the infamous Red House, Aria has a thorough theoretical understanding and is very practiced in many ways; however, her virginity has been preserved - with the help of a chastity belt - to increase her value. The product of a matriarchal clan and relishing her newly recovered freedom, she has a keen interest in power games and bondage - and a decided preference about who is in charge.
Yes please! I do tend to prefer things from the top side. Of course, making Aria suffer now and then can be fun and I expect her to sometimes end up on the sticky end of things, but I'm much more interested in having my way with others rather than being their plaything.
Meh; it's not an issue, but not an On, either. I would prefer to avoid the chaotic mashup that tends to occur in CoC and stick to 2 or 3 simultaneous creature types at the most, and the potential for 'resets'. Temporary transformations, that the character could enjoy briefly or force on another, have more appeal.
...is fun, yes!
Complicated. Nothing is a hard limit. Normally I shy away from pregnancy because it either breaks belief or carries a ton of baggage, but Aria is a bit of a special case in that she lays eggs rather than giving birth normally. So it could be fun to play through some of that and wouldn't derail the game.
Oviposition/parasites carry much less baggage and as long as the experience slants more kinky than gross I'm willing.
I would heavily prefer to play Aria, but I rolled up another option as well: Maki the Blue
Aasimar PaladinCharacter SheetDescription & Background
The Blue Lotus House is shrouded in myth and mystery, a cult that mix religion and prostitution in a way few understand. Most mistake the Blue Lotus for simple, if very esteemed, courtesans. However, their faith is deep and true. A gathering of talented oracles, the seers use the spiritual force of sex to perform rituals to create miracles and to touch upon the mysteries of the unknown. The act of prostitution is considered divine and pure, both a duty and a privilege for the clergy to serve their secret goddess, spread the joy and tranquility of physical release, and provide prosperity for the House. None are exempt from that call, but while some of the Blue show greater skill harnessing the spiritual others take the role of protectors and escorts. From time to time, they are even knights errant, preventing foreseen disaster or righting injustice. Few realize it, but these paladins are no less skilled than their more traditional brethren.
Like most of the Blue, Maki was birthed by the goddess herself, sown by the seed of a unknown client. The Blue served as her family and consoled her when the visions that came so easily to her sisters eluded her. She quickly learned to love the path of protector, however, and her faith grew deeper rather than broke. Her future with the House seemed certain and secure until the Solstice Orgy. Every oracle touched upon the same vision: that Maki would have to undertake a journey to prevent some unknown catastrophe. With a stalwart mien and the fondest of farewells from her sisters, she set upon an unknown course. Personality
Loyal, fair, accepting and supportive, Maki tries to present a dignified air of placid calm. She's young, though, and her cheerful eagerness breaks through when excited by something new or carried away by the pleasure of religious rites. She strives to lead by quiet example or polite encouragement rather than intimidation, although she will intervene more forcefully to protect the helpless. In particular, Maki is dedicated to the protection of prostitutes and gravitates toward their activity peripherally, as a worker or even as a client. Sexuality
The Blue Lotus House teaches that all members must practice the holy rites of prostitution, an obligation Maki has never resented. She is beautiful, young and skilled, and has never lacked for potential clients. Respect is required of clients, but refusing a fee for selfish reasons - beauty, politics, or sexual preference for instance - is frowned upon, with the injunction that a priestess must find the beauty in each person and has a duty to grant them pleasure. Maki is, therefore, very experienced and omnisexual. Sex outside of commerce is fine, but relationships are not if they encourage monogamy and interfere with faith.
Maki's own interpretation of scripture emphasizes the duty to impart pleasure as a carthartic safeguard against evil. Ideally, it should push limits and incite lust. Bindings are particularly effective to help build intensity before release. Nor is consent always strictly required in the face of repression.
