She has no real memories of who was before. Bits and pieces, fragments of words and sounds and images that have given her a general image of what she may have been. This she knows. She was one of the earliest to walk in the world. She was a mortal and she strove to gain power and immortality. She was not nice and she thinks she may have even sacrificed a daughter to try and stay young. Much more then that is lost to her. What ever she did too piss off a god or the gods she has no idea. Their punishment she does know and remember.
A statue was formed and her shattered essence was poured within. Added was clay and various other items that gave her life. The statue was on a magic pedestal in some grand city. The pedestal shape shifted her form often to the amusement of the denizens of the city. What was worst was all knowledge of who she had been was erased from the cosmos. There she stood alive within a prison of the finest marble, regaining a sense of self, shifting forms, imprisoned, watching as years passed. Decades. Centuries. But in the mortal world nothing lasts forever and she watched as the city fell. How it fell? She is not really sure. There was a war yes and death. It was the great shaking though that freed her. The city crumbled and the pedestal shattered and she fell to the ground.
That first real breath was filled with smoke and ash and fowl odors yet it was the sweetest breath she ever took for it was a breath of freedom. She found herself in a ruined city filled with monsters and all matter of creatures and then discovered the unintended gift
the gods had given her. She could shape-shift into any small or even medium humanoid being. Doing just that she blended in and used her mind to learn the languages spoken.
She swore she would never be imprisoned like that again and so she learned the skills of a rogue, a thief. Yet there was a deep almost obsession in her about wishes. She stole them. She knew exactly how to use them, how to make sure the effects worked. She knew the differences between a wish spell from a powerful wizard and a wish from a being like a djinn and even a god wish. As she grew in ability she stole wishes using her shape-shifting and her mind reading to gain advantages where needed. She then began to steel the essence and abilities and traits of other beings.
A prodigy, a half janni, a half fey, she picked and choose where to use those wishes she had.
Perhaps one her best steals was from a powerful wizard/smith that had two beautiful twin daughters. For them he began to forge matching luck blades filled with powerful wishes. She replaced one of the daughters, stole that sword, used her skills to make the sister attack and then stole her sword as well...leaving the twins to kill each other. She named the blades 'The sister swords' and used their wishes and others to add to their power.
The years passed and she found she did not age...another gift unintended from the gods...she grew in skill. Learned to use magic. Was everything from a tavern wench to a King, from a slave to a slaver master. She had many lovers. She killed and she saved and in all that time in all those shapes the one things he could not do for some reason was have a child of her own. She felt the need to protect the orphans and over the years there arose the myth of the godmother, protector of lost children. Avenger if need be.
She found an artifact called the "Perfection's Key"
, as well as a way to again hide knowledge of her. With that she stole into Ao's own palace and opened his vault. Caught there before she could escape she was imprisoned with monster's since Ao deeded her a bit to dangerous with her skills and the wish bound Key. She had learned much and in that prison she stayed low and watched...stealling from the monsters themselves... she herself never thought of her as a monster.
She finally gave herself...her true shape a name...a simple "Me" was what she called her self for she had many many names she could use.
This is the basic idea for my character. I have not really decided if she has a real name!
So if I understand this right the monster build should go like this:Doppelganger
CR = 3/ LA +4Draconic Creature
CR= Base +1/ LA +1Prodigy
CR 11 HD = Base +3/ LA +3Half Celestial
CR = Base +1/ LA +1Half-Janni
CR = Base +1/ LA +1Spellwarped
CR = Base +2/ LA +3Shar-Kissed
CR =Base +2/ LA +2
If i am right here 'Me' would have a monster CR of 13 and a LA of 15???
Is that right so far?
I am looking at rogue/ Hexblade
and the Chameleon
So I need help working up the details...I have been wading through stuff working out how this all works. It is very fasicanting.
As some extra info, 'Me' will probably be Chaotic Neutral and can work as a spy/scout/identity thief!!
