Physical AppearanceStanding at 6 feet exactly, Invicta has the mainly wooden and metal body expected of a Warforged, however, he sports a rather sleek and streamlined design, most of which is covered by the rags that hang about him. He also bears a unique face which is fashioned as a closed, featureless metallic surface.
Personality and InterestsInvicta, as his faceplate suggests, is a blank slate. Having his memory wiped by his former masters, he has retained almost no knowledge of his past selves, he only knows his name because it is inscribed on his frame, and he can only guess that is actually what he used to be called. Even though he is adequately skilled with his sword, his skill with it is almost all but forgotten, though it is implied that he used to be much more dangerous with it.
LaMarcus is a pretty chill guy who likes a hot cup of coffee or tea in the morning. He can be a bit antisocial around people he doesn't really know, and despite owning a mic, he usually only turns it on when it's absolutely necessary. Fitting, seeing as now that his metallic body has become real, his character lacks natural a speaking feature. He can only communicate using improvised sign language, as he doesn't know actual sign language and the game's built-in chat function.
Brief HistoryInvictus was created for the specific role of serving as a sort of bodyguard to a very high-class family. He was created as a sort of "blank-slate" because he was only seen as a tool and as less than a person. He was a person though and ended up developing a close relationship with the youngest heiress, a 10-year-old girl who happened to be rather dainty and always seemed in need of protecting. Invicta was more than happy to oblige though and watched the girl fervently as if she were related to him. Some 7 years later, during an unfortunate raid in which many of the inhabitants of the family manor were slain by an invading rival family, the girl, now 17, used magic to wipe the Warforged's memories and send him away from where he would never return.
LaMarcus was born into a low-class family and seemed to have a bleak future. However, he turned out to be naturally talented in art and academics. He got into a good university, majored in computer science and taught himself about visual art, and was eventually hired by a video game development company called 'Giant Games', the company that would go on to publish the hit VR game, Dungeons Deep and Dark.
Magic & ArtifactsPossesses "Youth's Locket", which contains a portrait of a girl he no longer recognizes. Wearing it gives him additional hitpoints.
Battle reflex - A passive ability that protects its user from surprise attacks by slowing down their perception of time, effectively putting them into a 'focus' mode and allowing them time to determine an escape route or maneuver out of the way.
'Mere' Mount - Possesses the unique 'Mere' mount, a steed comprised of dark and ancient magic, bound unconditionally to her master's side, even through death. Upon being felled in battle, Mere will regenerate from a black pool at Festus' Rest, and once recovered will return to her master's side at full strength. While she is still alive, she can be summoned anywhere the user can see with the 'Summon Mere' spell.
Character NotesBattle Reflexes do not guarantee the user takes no damage.
Less Than Human- Public opinion is that Warforged, merciless warriors from a past war, are emotionless husks and less than human. There are some stragglers who believe in treating all races equally, but for the most part, Warforged are usually met with slight disdain and suspicion, if not full-on condescension.
