Adelheid Dagmar [Undead, Mage]
#1
Player: Laucian

Character Full Name: Adelheid Dagmar

Character In-Game Name: Adelheid

Nickname(s): N/A

Association(s): The Forsaken

Race: Forsaken

Class: Mage (Necromancer)

Skills and Abilities: Adelheid's true power lies on Necromancy - she is skilled in both creating and mending undead, although she has been focusing mostly in their healing of late. Her time as a necromancer of the Scourge has taught her with a number of offensive and defensive spells based in shadow and frost, although she has not practiced them in many years.

Her brief studies of demonology allow her the creation of various magical stones created with shards from the souls of the living, although those are crude in nature.

Age: 52

Sex: Female

Hair: Black

Eyes: Glowy yellow

Weight: 97lbs (44kg)

Height: 6’1” (1,60m)

Usual Garments/Armor: Adelheid is usually clad in grey and battered robes which holds many pockets, accompanied by a hooded cloak, which is often lifted. A small but sturdy shovel is often strapped to her right shoulder by a thin strip of leather. A large curved knife hangs from her belt.

Alignment: Lawful Evil

Personality: First and foremost, she is Forsaken. Unlike others she accepts - even embraces - that fact. As such, she considers undeath a blessing instead of a curse. Even though she originally joined the Cult of the Damned willingly and was later betrayed and raised as undead, she knows her true place is under the Dark Lady’s service, whom she is a faithful servant of.

Her upbringing and the altered perceptions brought by her undeath make her cold towards most strangers and even to those whom she might consider close. Typically arrogant when it comes to things which she has learned, she will very often refuse to accept the fact - or even the possibility - that she might be wrong.

Nevertheless, she has a great deal of respect for authority and wishes only for the best to her fellow Forsaken, often going out of her way to help her brethren. However, she holds the living in scant regard, blood and high elves the only ones to be partially spared from her dislike.



History: Adelheid was born in Sunnyglade, currently called Raven Hill to a single mother and her only spoken-of father, whom she never met or had much information about. She grew secluded from the world, living with her mother at the cemetery. As she grew older, her mother allowed Adelheid to help her with her work: embalming and grave digging - Sunnyglade’s work. She did not have any formal education, learning with her mother, reading and by practicing her newfound trade.
As she turned nineteen, her mother caught a strange disease, which left her frail and constantly tired. She made several visit to the local alchemists, priests and doctors, but none had a cure to the illness she also contracted after a few months.

Their work became more difficult as her mother became more and more incapable of performing her duties. She came to pass not long before her twentieth birthday. She showed no signs of recovery either, but her case seemed to be less severe than her mother. Nevertheless, she carried on despite the illness.

When the First War began, she escaped along other survivors of Sunnyglade and united with the survivors of the whole of the Kingdom of Azeroth, sailing north to Lordaeron. She remained in Southshore for a while before moving northwards, to the Tirisfal Glades. Word came to her that embalmers were required in Brill.

The change of airs seemed to have done her well. She seemed to make some progress in fighting her illness, though it still plagued her. Although she never was a people person, she befriended the other embalmers that worked on Brill’s cemetery - now increasingly growing due the losses in the Second War.

After the end of the war, her health began to slowly worsen again, to a point where she was greatly strained to perform her work. Even worse, whatever she contracted seemed to spread among the other embalmers. Again, no alchemist or priest seemed to rid them of it.

But then, they were contacted by a group of mages which promised them a cure from the illness and powers beyond their wildest dreams. Adelheid was the first to accept although others followed shortly. Some refused their offers altogether.

She was easily swayed by the Cult of the Damned’s ideals for a new world. She served Ner’zhul dutifully, reading and practicing with the other members of the Cult, growing to become one of the Cult’s necromancers as the years passed. The Scourging of Lordaeron was eventually complete, regret filling her soul as she witnessed the citizens of Lordaeron turned into mindless husks. But she dared not speak up against her masters. Nevertheless, the Cult became aware that Adelheid was no longer fit and turned her into another undead servant, bound by the Lich King’s will.

Feeling betrayed by those she deposited her trust on, she struggled fruitlessly against the will of the Lich King... Until his will faltered, freeing many undead. At first, she was unsure of who to follow among the three factions that were created from the Scourge. But only one promised her freedom. As such, she joined Sylvannas, following her host until the taking of the Capital City.

She was left to gather her thoughts after the war. Although she loathed her undeath at first, now it seemed to be much like the empty promises of the Cultists: eternal life, free of disease. A perfect society of such superior beings was being formed in the ruins of Lordaeron. Even though she was frail in life, she was now more capable than she ever was during her living days.

Embracing her old life, she worked hard to repair the multitude of the Forsaken that were damaged during the war. She slowly lost her social ineptitude as months passed by, never becoming an extrovert but feeling more well at ease among others.

As she attempted to further progress her necrotic studies, she pondered about the obvious link between the Scourge and the Burning Legion. She studied ancient and recent books about demonology, her focus on the nature of the undead soul.

Ever fearful of corruption, her studies bore fruits very slowly, until she learned of the nature of stones created by small shards of souls. Believing only that to be of use to the Forsaken, she ceased her studies once she learned how to produce them, daring not to dabble further in the Fel magics.

To this day she continues her necromantic studies in secret, always looking to better understand the nature of the Forsaken. With the aid of her necrotic powers, healthstones and old-fashioned embalming, she has taken to herself to repair the forsaken that are damaged, considering it to be a good way to serve the Dark Lady, the one whom she owes her freedom.

Do her skills and abilities differ significantly from a base warlock? You mention that she's continuing her necromantic studies. If they do, then you should list that in the profile in the skills and abilities section thing that is currently absent.

Initial approval.

Whops. I kind of forgot that. I had it written in the paper but forgot to type it down.

I've added it now, sorry about that.

We generally only allow Magi to be the OOC base class for Necromancers.

Also, you should keep in mind that all the members of the Cult of the Damned are fed a potion that ensures their loyalty for the remainder of their lives. There is no turning back once you're in. You won't even think about it.

Quote:With the promise of wealth, power, knowledge — whatever will motivate them — the Cult draws them in. When the mortals commit to the Cult, they are forced to drink a concoction that steals their will and enslaves them forever to the Lich King, to help them with the final act of submission.

Alright, I will change the class.

Hrm, I seem to have missed that, sorry.

As all necromancers become undead eventually, would it be feasible that she became another undead slave but was freed when the Lich King was weakened? If not, she can have died and raised again as undead.

I double-checked. The membership loyalty potion was part of the RPG, which is now considered non-canon. You can read about it here. This basically means that your character wouldn't have to have drank the potion to be part of the cult, and the potion may not even exist at this point.

Quote:Race: Human Forsaken

The only Forsaken playable are all humans, so you only need to list Forsaken here.

What Wuvvums said above is also correct. The potion was an RPG only thing and it was decided that it would be non-canon, thus allowing people to escape from the cult if they please.

Quote:As all necromancers become undead eventually, would it be feasible that she became another undead slave but was freed when the Lich King was weakened? If not, she can have died and raised again as undead.

As a note, not all Necromancers become undead, only those who aspire to become Liches really. The current way you have it described seems just fine to me however.

First of all, thanks for your time!

I removed the 'human' bit before the Forsaken for the sake of clarity.

I double checked: the information that all necromancers eventually turn into undead was apparently one of the RPG books as well, so it is non-canon as well.

I'm glad I didn't change the story, since that particular tidbit of the story is okay.
