• None, but he is mentioned in Virtuosa's app

Arbutus is very much akin to that stern, overly-cautious older brother who you tend to sigh and roll your eyes at but still love anyway (think Percy Weasley!), or at least that's generally how he acts where Virtuosa is concerned. The quintessential Prince in nearly every way, he is unabashedly the more grounding force out of Virtuosa's Bonded and takes little hesitance in trying to rein her back in from her more reckless endeavors, but truthfully he does mean well and attempts to have the young woman's best interests and safety at heart. He oozes common sense and pragmatism, exceptionally well-versed in Protocol and Blood Law (a boon since his Queen is pretty clumsy and tactless in that arena), he is vehemently in the camp of wishing she would just settle down and prepare to rule over a court like a sane proper Queen. It's safer, and he really doesn't desire to see his Darkness-bound Lady get slaughtered by some rampant Brood!

Despite that and despite the way they tend to butt heads more often than not, she is still His and she adores him to the ends of the earth. He is, however, combat-trained and has plenty of experience due to having served the minimum term of service within the Ebon Guard. Arbutus may prefer the idea of a stationary court for Virtuosa, but he follows her into battle just as readily as the others.

The details of how/when/where they met are entirely up for negotiation, though I would say they've been together for at least a few years now. I have it headcanoned that one of his Craft Strengths is Contracts (because lol Virtuosa can't perform Geas Craft at all) so it tends to help her out in the event that she needs some sort of bound agreement with someone. Beyond that, any other quirks and nuances are 100% up to whoever takes him and we can discuss any tweaks you might like to make!

The Brood has claimed the lives of many people and their families, and this prickly Black Widow is no exception to that rule. Whether the Waste befell her immediate family or they decided to join the Brood willingly and/or were slain trying to fight them (#dramatic), the gal lost her mother, father and siblings many years ago and has been somewhat of a lone wolf ever since.

It's made her fairly harsh and unforgiving even for one of her caste, though how she chose to exact her revenge upon the Brood is up to you. She could've been in the Red Cloaks or part of the Hourglass Coven instead, whatever kind of BW you fancy her to be. The only requirement being that she ended up meeting and accompanying this band of Brood-slayers and takes an exceptionally lethal delight in seeing those creatures fall to their end.

I'm not fussed as to how long she's known Virtuosa and co. and she could even be related to any of the Queen's Bonded males listed up in here if you wanted some additional connection on that front (though you'd need to speak to phinn re: Hawk as she has that boy claimed). Could be a newer addition to the group or maybe she's been a childhood friend of the fighter Queen, I'm open for anything!

Above are some suggestions for name, playby (I like picspam and they were in a show together so it's lovely), etc. but those aren't necessary and you're free to change whatever.

Do any of the above not suit your fancy but you still wanna get in on the action with this rad warrior elf Queen? That's a-okay too! I personally imagine her retinue at present isn't enormous, but I would definitely say she's acquired/will be acquiring at least a handful of other folks to add to her squad of heroic misfits! And they're definitely skilled enough to have started earning a reputation for their success when it comes to vanquishing those creepy Brood jerks.

I am absolutely open for her to run into any array of new men or women for her to Bond with (or even not, they could just be really chill friends~) and join the foray into this deadly lifestyle. She needs people who try to talk sense into her as much as she does people who go along with her shenanigans so that's an option for sure. They don't even have to be into the fighting if that's not their style. Every good pack of warriors could use a skilled Healer or a Black Widow within their circle (Priestesses too, but you'll have to keep in mind Dea al Mon's lore/canon and huge deficit of that caste if you decide to make one of those).

Backstories, personalities, etc. are all wide open for anyone in this category, but if you need some inspiration or ideas to jump off of, I do have a few general concepts that I think would be neat to see play out, so anyone is more than welcome to hit me up for those if they'd like. Let it also be noted that these peeps don't necessarily have to be the goody-two-shoes types - they're fully welcome to have their own motivations and machinations for falling into this group, for better or for worse.

There is no limit to the number of spots that are open so this will just run sort of indefinitely until we get a nice little assortment of folks.



This is assuredly not an enclosed sort of plot, there will be opportunities for interactions with other members of the Esgarth Province Court (to be played by Dany, Dash and Em thus far) and even reaching out to other courts and people within the expanse of Dea al Mon as Virtousa tends to roam and drag her motley crew around with her (Brood lurk around all parts, after all). Kassel will probably be a big point of interest given that it's become a Brood stronghold of sorts, but they'll definitely meander to interact with whoever.

Bear in mind that this is not necessarily guaranteed to be a quest with a happy ending for everyone involved, the potential for injury or death is something that could easily come about if people aren't careful. The Brood are very real and very dangerous and I am absolutely intending to get some plotting in with the folks that play members of the Brood so we can have some badass combat threads and such. I'm certainly not saying it's required to gravely injure or kill off your C by any means, I'd simply like to be realistic about the notion that shit happens, but we'll cross those bridges when we get to them~

As usual, if you have any questions or interest in any of this fabulous cavalcade, don't hesitate to hit me up via PM or Discord! <3
