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 faceplate which is fashioned as a closed, featureless metallic surface. It is implied that there is more to his body than he knows.
Personality and InterestsDespite having been sucked into a strange virtual video game world, Invicta takes most of his situation in stride. Accepting that he is in a precarious situation, he is more than willing to get himself our blade first. The sudden intelligence the game's mobs all now seem to possess confuses him, the ramifications of such an ordeal have yet to completely dawn on him. While he doesn't often show it, Invicta has a fear of the enemies of the more powerful and deadly end of the spectrum, and the fact that they may or may not be just as capable or more so as their closest real-life counterparts only bothers him more. While there are a few people in his group that annoy him slightly, he'd prefer it if everyone currently in the group managed to keep themselves alive throughout this ordeal. Yes, even the Dread Knight.
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 of rather frail constitution and always seemed in need of protecting. Invicta was more than happy to oblige though and watched the girl fervently. 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 on a journey from which 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.
Blade of Heroes - A near ancient blade endowed with light-based magic that strengthens its user against dark or evil magics.
Hero's Guard - Whenever the Blade of Heroes is used to slay an enemy of evil or dark alignment, the user is surrounded in armor made of magical light which will completely negate the damage of the first thing to hit it before dissipating.
Light's Embrace - The user of this sword is significantly more resistant to light or holy magic.
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, wariness, and suspicion, if not full-on condescension.
