It’s time to do a little work on some NPC’s for the good old campaign world and I’ve got some new toys to do it. Where better to start than the pair that was really influential in the last campaign. Aurora and Behring.
This sister/brother duo is rarely seen together. But when they are, it usually means that Aurora is getting her younger brother out of trouble which happens way more often than she would like.
Aurora is honorable and generally honest but she’s not above using deception or manipulation for what she sees as the greater good. She proudly keeps the scars across her chest. She received these while destroying the Temple of Tiamat in Malkuth. With the Cult of Tiamat gone, the Cult of Mordiggian rose to prominence in the city. While she despises the Ghoul God, she is not above calling in a favor from them. They owe her. She prefers to keep a low profile and be a power behind the scenes.
Behring is Aurora’s younger brother. He’s impulsive and overconfident. He rarely thinks of the larger consequences of most of his actions unless it’s his hide on the line. He drinks more than is humanly possible. He’s rarely found outside of an ale house, gambling den, or brothel. Despite his skills, he has the annoying habit of getting in over this head. While he’ll abide by his word, getting him to give it is another thing entirely.
Aurora: Ancient Gold Dragon
Behring: Young Gold Dragon
Yes, these two were fun to play the party. Neither was a “Batman” NPC. Aurora didn’t fight until she had too. For the first several sessions, she portrayed herself as a dimwitted and helpless maiden. As for Behring, his recklessness and lack of impulse control caused more problems than it solved.
