Sea of Souls update

I wrote a few descriptions the other day. Nothing to overly complicated or serious – just to accompany some folders on my DeviantArt Gallery.

They were of some of the characters in the Sea of Souls project that I have had going on for some time (Which reminds me, I really should add a section for projects on my new Website)

It got me back into the mood of the whole project again and I’m looking forward to doing some more stuff with it when I get the chance.
The world needs a lot of work and development, but I can feel the strength returning to pick it up again and work on the intricate details of it.

Anyway, I wanted to share these descriptions with you.

What is Skaejre?

A Soul Forager – A hunter of the dying. It is her role – along with her kinsmen – to find the Souls of those on the brink of death and take the remnants of their life and add it to their own. Or to spare them; depending on they whim.

Skaejre is worldly, a traveller and a font of wisdom when she wishes; yet to others of her clan she is young and often regarded as foolish. Her choices to not marry with the rest of the Soul Foragers and often her agenda is her own. 

As to what Skaejre actually is… that is currently under investigation!

You do know you spell your name wrong don’t you, Sabastian?

Sabastian is a mage – his skills are unquestionably there. His sanity? That’s the more difficult part of his character to grasp.
He’s not always a jibbering mess. Only on his bad days.

His life was saved by Skaejre when she foresaw his usefulness for events unknown.
Yet her actions snapped his mind for he feared her and what she would do. The confusion of her saving him conflicted him greatly. Adding this to his fae curse was just to much.

Yet, like so many madmen he is prone to bouts of wisdom and clarity. 

If only he knew what Skaejre saw in him…

Ethan doomed the world to lose one third of it’s population.
Not through any direct action of his own; but it was through him that Severance manifested.

He comes from a world of higher technology and control – one not known or understood by many that he meets. A conflicted world, wrapped in war and terror through it’s own making.

He is a key – yet he is so elusive!

Everard actually started off as a Dragon Age fan character, and while I still use him as such from time to time I have come to think of him finding a place in Sea of Souls also.

Everard is not a complicated man he has been a Templar in the Order of the Cross for most of his years. His function is as a Relic Hunter; finding lost artefacts of his faith and returning them to their rightful home – back with the Order.

He has made many contacts throughout the world and while his profession may carry the air of arrogance, stubbornness and ignorant there is something to be said about this particular Templar.
Sky Captain of the Valhalla. A simple sky-ship with various smuggling capabilities. Legal trade also happens!

He once had a fling with Skaejre, but her demanding word and the constant worry that she might just die, was not an agenda they agreed upon. Nor was his pre-arranged Dandarian marriage As such they went their own ways with mutual accord.

A Dandarian – a reclusive race of traditionalists. They’re crafters, musicians, dancers and all that foppish sort of thing. Not rugged Captains of Skyships. Farrell couldn’t agree with the regal life offered and thus left it and his family to seek his own life.
He still feels some level of doubt for the life he left behind and often wonders if he would be better still in it – rather than slogging with his sweaty crew men.
Still, sweat is better than playing the fiddle for a few spare coin
There is the outstanding matter of Severances description – I shall get to work on that one soon.
