Agnes’ Ashes

    Meet The Wing Mob, a small mercenary band on their way to deliver their boss’ remains to her native sea. Passing through the Countryside of Galthreach, things are tense. There’s a civil war on and the busiest merchant corridor has been disrupted by disappearances – neither side knows why. In an effort to make some much needed scratch, Wing Mob quickly become involved in an eerie and highly clandestine contract to escort a strange man down that very route.

    Do Wing Mob have what it takes to rebuild, or will the loss of their leader and disarray under the new administration bring their destruction on this dubious mission?

    The Wing Mob

    Frixa – Played by Josh La Forge

    Race: Tiktani  | Core: Radiance  | Step 1: Scoundrel

    Character Sheet

    Appearance: A handsome bug of 6’5″ with a slender exterior of stately yellow chitin marked with dark brown accents that compliment his distinguished bearing. He resembles a gregarious locust of ages long forgotten if they had walked upright and wore leather doublets and top hats.

    Background: Having gained control of The Wing Mob rather suddenly due to Agnes’ untimely death, Frixa is doing his best to inspire confidence in his leadership and push the group towards bigger and better things. He always knew that he was more fit to lead than Agnes, and he now has the chance to prove it! They will see soon enough. They will all see.

    Chookie Caw – Played by Cap Blackard

    Race: Krex  | Core: Marksman | Step 1: Fire

    Character Sheet

    Appearance: Bright red with underfeathers of yellow and vibrant blue, Chookie is a loud bird in more ways than one. She resembles the prehistoric Macaw with taloned feet and hands. Chookie wears a small pouch of alchemical vials and ingredients around her waist and is never seen without her trusty chef’s knife.

    Background: Chookie was the daughter of an old war buddy of Agnes’. When her parents died, Agnes literally took her under her wing. Grooming her to one day lead The Wing Mob, Agnes relied on her to observe from the rear as the group’s fire mage and in camp as their cook. Sadly, Agnes died before passing on the torch, and Chookie grates under the new leadership.

    Slish – Played by Maxx Wessel

    Race: Gelt | Core: Marksman | Step 1: Marksman

    Character Sheet

    Appearance: Resembling a large river otter, Slish is a brown-furred mustachioed sea dog. He wears his time-worn marine coat and boots, and his eyes are rarely seen unshaded by his large, brown kettle helm. Adorned only with his bow, quiver, sword, and a vial of water around his neck from the river Faella, on first look, he appears largely unremarkable.

    Background: Employed as a medic in the Akaenoshian merchant marines for decades, Slish left the service once the civil war broke out, having no desire to fight former comrades. Agnes, a Skimmer herself, convinced him to join The Wing Mob, and he hasn’t looked back. After her death, Slish is largely unconcerned with the change in leadership so long as Agnes’ remains are handled to his satisfaction.

    Grandon – Played by Doug Banks

    Race: Toldun | Core: Citadel | Step 1: Citadel & Champion

    Character Sheet

    Appearance: Dark-skinned with a neat, if bushy moustache, Grandon’s smart style and imposing silhouette give him a regal air. he wears a large, black thawb over his immaculately kept armor and a matching keffiyeh to divert from exactly how prepared he is for battle.

    Background: Soft spoken, polite, and powerful, Grandon made the ideal bodyguard for an extremely wealthy and aging merchant. When his client inevitably passed, Agnes scooped him up, rescuing him from the sad fate of the obsolete warrior. Having found new purpose in protecting his new comrades, Agnes’ death only served to strengthen his resolve.

They’re joined by the soft spoken and polite, yet immovable as stone Toldun, Grandon (Doug Banks); and Slish (Maxx Wessel) the mustachioed Gelt sea dog – a former merchant marine and faithful Skimmer.
