Unimposing Demeanor, Prefers Spirits over Science
(High Aspirations) Male Human Occultist
(DC 10) A direct descendant of the Astrologian Teycitite General, Harold LaCroix, Charles’ life has been one of relative distance from the rest of his ancestral people. Whereas most denizens of Teycit enjoy the increased ease with which their lives have come to know with the technological revolution, Charles prefers to shun science, in favor of Jeoujian spiritcraft. He claims that his reason for joining the First Expedition was to get as far away from technology as possible.
(DC 15) As a surprise to none that know of his lineage, Charles’ true reason for traveling to Edenecho is to gain prestige, and make a name for himself among the names that would no doubt go down in history for being the first to conquer the new land. He is a proficient user in a fringe branch of creation necromancy, using only the earth and natural resources to form his soldiers, rather than the corpses of the fallen.
(DC 20) Although his efforts to gain prestige are a mystery to none who pay attention to the man, Charles’ true motivation lies in cleansing the disgraced lineage that he hails from. In addition to holding the Astrologian title of Aries, his ancestor Harold LaCroix was also (quite secretly) the final Herald of Saint Croix, using his abilities to puppet a revolution via the philosopher Symund Gray. Charles finds the act terribly distasteful, and hopes to forge a new story for the LaCroix family. One that would reflect upon the lens of time a bit more favorably. Charles’ Ideal is ‘Redemption’.
A direct descendant of famed Astrologian Teycitite General, Harold LaCroix, Charles’ life has been one of relative distance from his ancestral people. Whereas most denizens of Teycit enjoy the increased ease of which their lives have come to know with the technological revolution, Charles prefers to shun science, in favor of Jeoujian Spiritcraft. He spent most of his early life among the Imperial lands, learning what he could of their magicks and culture.
As a surprise to none that know of his lineage, Charles’ reasoning for going to Edenecho is to gain prestige for himself and his family name, hoping that one day his own moniker might shine as brightly as his ancestors. His proficiency in a fringe branch of necromancy, used by animating the earth and stone around him instead of the corpses of the fallen, has earned him many an odd eye on the new land.
Yet, for all his supposed bluster, at his core LaCroix is a calm and focused man, sometimes even bordering on sluggish as he drags his feet from place to place around town. His position as Seat Seven among the Council of Edenecho is an honest shock to most people, who wonder what sort of person would possibly vote for such an off-putting gentleman. Yet still, he diligently performs the duties that the rest of the Council assigns him, not having much of a personal agenda as of yet.
