Name: She Who Mars the Skin of Gods Alias: Lasciel Title: Lady of Darkhallow Previous Name: Mierin Tomanelle Exaltation: Abyssal Caste: Dusk Liege: Eye and Seven Despairs Motivation: To cast down and kill all of the traitorous gods and elementals (especially those who abandoned her tribe in its hour of need)
Life; Cold and Hard, but Life: Death, The Beginning of the End: Twisted, Broken, Remade: Princess of Death:
Clarification: Personally, Lasciel has no desire to kill mortals or undo Creation; her only qualms are with the gods and spirits of the world, whom she aims to kill one by one until there are no deceivers left. The lure of Oblivion is sweet to her, due to the harshness of the life in the north, but she does not actively seek it out outside of her given missions. Of course, though, she has no problems with killing mortals and undoing the works of Creation on necessity (when she is on a mission, for example, or when that path is easier).
Idea: One idea to ease the group dynamics due to my character being an Abyssal Exalted is one of the Lunar Exalted characters (if their player agree) to be the Lunar Mate of Lasciel's tainted Solar Exaltation. If that's the case, it would be much easier to deal with protecting life (ie. the group), since Resonance does not apply to Lunar Mates; even better if both characters had a positive Intimacy.
A small and secluded shadowland in the North, Darkhallow Field does not have much strategic value, and neither is in the middle of any major roads or regions of Creation. As such, the major powers of both Creation and the Underworld leave it largely unmolested. Bored with her lack of missions from her complacent Deathlord, Lasciel saw in Darkhallow the opportunity to gain a foothold in Creation, as well as resources for herself - which she promptly did, claiming Darkhallow as her own. To the present, no one has challenged her on her right.
Well, she IS half-dead, after all, so I figure giving her plenty of health is a way to emulate her shrugging off wounds (that and giving her high Soak, of course!). My only doubt is if I should take out one or two -0 boxes and turn them into -1 boxes...
No Abyssal charms exist to negate wound penalties that I can think of offhand - though that just means I'll have to scan MoEP Bloodgoths and Scroll of Errata a bit more closely. In any case, my advice is, let the Lunars handle the tanking (seriously, a Lunar can get 19L soak without even trying, using Hide-Toughening Essence + Armor-Forming Technique + moonsilver lamellar armour - and that's presuming Ess 2 Stamina 3, which is the minimum for all those), and let the Dusk and the Dawn handle the slashing.
