Lords of Gossamer and Shadow NPC’s: Grace of Simpkin

Grace at war with the Delion of Uppar
Image by Fadly Romdhani, legalese at bottom of page

The Gossamer World of which I was born, Simpkin, has always known a state of war.  We are one of two planets in close proximity orbiting an anomaly of space with a dense gravitational pull.  The Delion’s (native ape like denizens of the planet Uppar) are jealous of our technology and seek to destroy our own hold over our planet.

Millennia ago this meant defending against rag-tag warrior groups making their way to our planets on stolen old technology from our mining crews on their own planet but recently our intelligence suggests that the apes have found a new source of technology and support.  They apparently found a door that leads to the Grand Stair.

I am the head of our intelligence operation as I have known the secret of the Grand Stair for a great deal of time.  Much of our advanced technology was created from designs that I had personally secured the blue prints for.  Now the threat is different though as it will take me into the Grand Stair and its multiple intrigues to find what in Vala’s name is going on!  Who would deal with the filthy Delion’s.  They are barely sentient at best and need to be tamed and subjugated to work on our mining exploration rigs.

I will not rest until I have the head of the Delion who has found the Grand Stair and the conspirators that join with them in fighting back against us, the superior beings of Simpkin.

Powers

Warden of the Stair (10 Points)

Artifact
Tiara of Vision (5 Points)
A piece of technology completely designed by Grace and versions of it are in common use across the SIO.  Very aware of surroundings and possessing a certain pre sentience that allows for the device to communicate to the user when they are under threat.


  • Able to Speak (1 Point)
  • Extraordinary Psychic Sense (4 Points)
Cape of Disguise (21 Points)
Grace’s clothing is made of a highly changeable fabric that has the ability to alter Grace’s appearance and shape as well as protect her from weapons to a degree.

  • Confers Quality to Wearer (5 Points) Resistant to Firearms
  • Limited to Shape Shift (4 Points)
  • Resistant to Firearms (2 Points)
Grace’s Sting (6 Points)
Grace’s ever present blade is a thing of beauty.  She had it crafted from the heart of a meteor that struck Simpkin.  She had the Simpkin media believe that the meteor was an Upparian attack and authorised a strike on the planet that killed thousands of the Delion.
  • Invulnerable to Conventional Weapons (4 Points)
  • Double Damage (2 Points)



Allies
Delton Vess (2 Points) Mentor
Delton is from the Gossamer world of Luten who are technologically superior to the Simpkin.  Grace has befriended him and has been siphoning technical blueprints from the reality through Delton as their Gossamer Worlds are similar in makeup to one another, so similar in fact that Grace believes the two worlds may actually co-exist in the same Universe.

SIO (3 Points) Partisan Support
The Simpkin Intelligence Organisation (SIO) is the responsibility of Grace.  They are able to provide her support throughout Simpkin and Upparia should she require it.

Vaughn Little (3 Points) Gossamer World Devotee
Grace’s position as the head of the intelligence agency is assured by her relationship with the General of the war effort on Simpkin.  There are many Delion sympathisers on Simpkin that believe Grace is an old school dinosaur who needs to be removed from office.  General Vaughn Little though is in favour of her tactics and has been in love with the woman since he was a young child and she was used on posters for the war effort.  

Ketaria Vexon (4 Points) Dwimmerlaik Ally
Grace is actually working as a double agent and is an informant to the Dwimmerlaik, collecting intelligence for them on the Lady Vala and her favoured subjects.  In return she believes that she is buying a measure of protection for Simpkin when the Dwimmerlaik start pushing their plans against the lords and ladies.

Lady Vala (5 Points) Lady of the Grand Stair
Once Grace found the Grand Stair she approached the Lady herself to see if her rulership was one she approved of.  She finds Lady Vala to be a little reserved in her power and therefore not worthy of her respect though she hides her true feelings.

Lucien (5 Points) Lord of the Grand Stair
When the Lady is indisposed Grace finds that Lucien is the best to get information from, regardless of his moodiness.  She actually has a secret desire to be closer to Lucien but is also a little scared of him as she feels he is intelligent enough to figure out her other connections if she is not careful.
