Thing is our GM just got his printed copy of 7th Sea 2e and has decided to change from directing Firefly to 7th Sea.
We were talking about what kind of characters we want to play and all the other players wanted quite dark archetypes who are moved by revenge against the cousin of a Vodacce Prince and/or a Vaticine Inquisitor.
So the other characters are likely to be an Eisen objectionist priest with a pantherfaut and (probably) hexenwerk, a pirate with some badass firepower and scoundrel habilities and an Avalon duelist knight.
With so much in game I just decided I wanted to go on a completely opposite direction and make a "mascot" character who would help relieve tensions and set them straight when they come close to corruption.
So far this is what I'm working with:
Name: Catalina Arciniega Zepeda de Altamira.
Concept: Damiselle in distress.
Traits: brawn 2, finesse 3, resolve 2, wits 3, panache 3.
Backgrounds: aristocrat and antropólogo.
Free advantages: convinced our GM to switch Rich to Appearance above average (she's an Hidalgo)
Advantages: Appearance Stunning, small and survivalist (studied herbology at university).
Skills: aim 1, athletics 1, brawl 0, convince 3, empathy 3, hide 2, intimidate 0, notice 3, perform 2, ride 2, sailing 0, scholarship 3, tempt 0, theft 0, warfare 0, weaponry 0.
Secret society: 0.
Brief introduction: Catalina lost her parents at a very young age during the War of the Cross (they volunteered to fight for the Vaticine). When she became an orphan, the Vaticine took her in, raising her in a nunnery, managing her state and teaching her all she would need to turn into a pious Vaticine noble wife. She then went to (a Vaticine and Inquisition controled) university to study antropology, theology, herbology, a bit of medicine (veterinary), some practical maths and physcs (something usefull to diagnose the state of buildings, irrigation and facilites) and economics so that she would properly administer her future husband's state. She's been rised in a blisfull environment and taught of the good of Theus and people so she is extremely naïve, trusting and forgiving and quite pious but she's inteligent and a true Castillian beauty.
History so far: the Vaticine Inquisitor has been nurturing Catalina so that he can secure allies through an arranged marriage, her fiance is a Vodacce nobleman known for his bad temperament and aggresiveness but he also is a cousin of Giovanni Vilanova. The Inquisition wants to get a firmer grasp at Vodacce politics and Giovanni wants to get comercial advantage in Castille as It hasn't yet fully acepted the Guilder.
The heroes need to stop this deal if they want to prevent both villians from gaining further influence.
So, what do you think so far?
