Saxi

Chiton Paladin

S'xiktl Unknown (a.k.a. Saxi)

Physical Description

General Physical Condition

She is very strong and has a lot of stamina. She is fairly agile as well, but not extremely. Being a paladin requires her to keep herself physically fit and quick on her feet. One of the things she likes about her sign spinning job is the upper body workout that she gets everyday. She earns money and exercises at the same time.

Body Features

She has a chitinous shell that is mostly bright green with yellow, pink, black, and blue accents. She also has two pairs of arms and hands, the lower set is more vestigial, and can only emote or gesticulate as she communicates. Otherwise, these little arms aren't strong enough to do or carry much else.   Beneath the shield-like shell on her back are two sets of iridescent wings. Because of her size they can only carry her a short distance, but they stay well protected beneath her shell.

Facial Features

Saxi has two large, curved horns that cover and protect her auditory sensory organs. There are also two antennae on top of her head, which tend to twitch and move based on her mood.

Identifying Characteristics

To most people she appears to be an imposing, brightly colored, 6ft tall insect. She is the only Chiton in Cinderhaven as far as she knows, so she tends to stand out a lot. It makes hiding in the crowd or trying to blend in nearly impossible.

Physical quirks

Her back is covered by a shield-like shell which protects her very delicate, iridescent wings.

Special abilities

  • She is a Paladin following the Oath of Vengeance.
  • She can fly short distances, has a climb speed, and darkvision.
  • Apparel & Accessories

    She doesn’t wear clothing except for the occasional cloak. She also has a belt with various pouches and a bag of holding.

    Specialized Equipment

    She carries a longsword, as well as a Sentinal Shield across her back which bears the holy symbol of her goddess. She

    Mental characteristics

    Personal history

    She remembers nothing before a few months prior to the start of the campaign. She woke up in a cell below ground, with no solid memories of her past. Oisin arrived in the cell with her about 1 week later and they realized they had one shared memory. They do not know if the memory is from either of their pasts.   A week or so after Oisin arrived in the cell, The Resistance freed them and took them in. She joined the Resistance effort to seek justice for herself and the other prisoners that had been experimented on.

    Education

    None that she knows about. She is relatively intelligent and speaks a few languages, but she has no idea how or where she learned them

    Employment

    She currently works as a sign spinner for a spa in the Pearl District. Her unique appearance makes her stand out among the crowd in Cinderhaven and draws more attention to the spa's advertisement.

    Accomplishments & Achievements

    The Resistance tested her abilities and she discovered that she is a Paladin of Atloxtli, the Chiton goddess of Arcana and Tempest.   She was part of The Resistance's efforts to bring down King Earl Goodsbury , and helped the town into a more democratic leadership.

    Failures & Embarrassments

    She has no concrete memories of her past and does not know anything about Chiton culture beyond what she read in Zeknar Feddle’s book on Lamina Island. This has lead to several instances of her having to be extremely vague or evasive about her past. Her close friends all know the truth, but she hides this fact from everyone else as much as possible. It would lead to too many questions that she can't, or doesn't want, to answer.

    Mental Trauma

    She has suffered extreme memory loss resulting from attempted Nocturne-ification. Somehow, she and Oisin were able to resist being turned, but it left them with a lot of mental scars. Neither can remember anything before the cell they both awoke in. They have a shared memory that is very clear, but otherwise they only remember scattered fragments that tend to jumble together. Neither she nor Oisin know whether their shared memory actually belongs to either of them.

    Intellectual Characteristics

    She is of average intelligence, less than average wisdom, and fairly charismatic. She tends to think on her feet better than being overly strategic, but she'll follow a plan if the group comes up with one.

    Morality & Philosophy

    She believes in doing what is right and does not care overly about breaking the law when it's necessary. Despite what she's learned about her past, she prefers to seek justice rather than vengeance.

    Personality Characteristics

    Motivation

    Find out who she was and protect the friends that have become her family. Especially Oisin.

    Savvies & Ineptitudes

    She is not good with social interactions involving her past, since she does not remember it. She also tends to be very quiet when others discuss family or their pasts. She doesn't want to make them uncomfortable, but has nothing to add to the conversation.   She is concerned about what will happen when the party goes to Lamina Island. She will have obvious gaps in her knowledge that other Chitons are sure to notice.

    Likes & Dislikes

    Likes: Oisin, Pinbol, her friends, Aldion, Zreet, Tirah, to know what her mission is
    Dislikes: Secrets and lies, not knowing who she used to be, evil intentions, callous people

    Virtues & Personality perks

    Very honest, wary of unknown people

    Vices & Personality flaws

    She is distrustful of new people and places. Given what little she knows of her past, anyone and anything could be a threat. She is less quick to trust than some of the others.

    Personality Quirks

    She avoids talking about her past with people who don’t know already. She is VERY vague about her past with most people.   She does not sleep in a bed; it feels strange and uncomfortable to her. Instead, she sleeps on a soft pile of hay in the corner of her room.

    Hygiene

    She keeps herself clean and tries to avoid glitter as much as possible.

    Social

    Contacts & Relations

    Best Friends with Oisin, friend and ally of all members of the Party, Pinbòl
