Lord Danar Vorpadaran Character in Star Wars: Shards | World Anvil

Lord Danar Vorpadaran

((Introduced in Shards of Honor adventure 1.0, “Blood Inheritance”.))

Mental characteristics

Failures & Embarrassments

There was that one time when a renegade Bene Geesserit (player can't remember her name) used The Voice on Danar to stop him from being a factor in the fight against her and he botched his resistance, rendering him to do anything but stand there motionless. It was the most helpless and impotent Danar had ever been in his life and I believe it was the reason he started raising his Willpower.   The Mind-Flayer would probably try to bring it up to gloat about how powerless Danar is when faced with beings wielding power like his. Danar would either reply he's grown stronger since then and either mentally punch him out with Willpower (if some sort of telepathic link is involved) or just strike or shoot him physically while No Selling any attempt to stop him mentally.


Family Ties

VNY's notes in the right column may get deleted once the Player fills in his proper Character information. (Anyway, Ysadora's notes - since she does not bother put access security on the read permissions for her datapadd, only on write permissions - should be suspected for inaccuracies or at least assumed to be wildly biased)

Third son of a minor house (therefore addressed as “Lord Danar” and not “Lord Vorpaderan” at formal occasions), a saber-rake, his greater House (and, later, government) make use of him to solve awkward problems, which started with relocating the new secret allies — the Jedi Council — onto a privately-owned world which appeared on no star charts: Dendarii. Regent Aral Vorkosigan depended on him for the most outre things, and now, so does Emperor Gregor Vortapani.

Excellent shot with ship-based weapons, able to talk at incredible speeds when trying to persuade someone to go with his suggestions, consistently generous to his companions and even to new acquaintances. He genuinely likes being a member of the Vor class. I’m not sure what’s going to happen to his overall personality when his relatives finally grasp the notion that he’s a man, not a boy, and has BEEN an adult for some time now.

He has a military rank so he’s a member of the Tapani Military somehow.
