Character background:

Like so many other gray elves, Galia started dabbling with magic at an early age and with a combination of outstanding talent and rigorous training he soon proved to be more than a match for his teachers. His innate talent made him arrogant too. He seeked knowledge that could not be gained with arcane arts, so he directed his endeavours to calling spirits and oppressing them for greater power.

In due time he learned the most terrible of combinations, that of arcane magic and spirit binding. He knew he would be caught if he continued his sinister ways within the elven community and so he fled. His years of travels made him a lot more powerful, but the power came at a great price. He lost his vitality and both his mind and soul slowly corrupted. After almost a decade of reading and preparing he went through a terrible ritual that transformed him into a living dead, a necropolitan as he calls it.

At around this time his greed grew so great he was ready to utilise any means to gain more might. Eventually, in a ritual that devastated an entire city, he called the Demon Prince Graz'zt to the Mortal Coil. Swearing to be his eternal servant he was granted powers beyond his expectations and now he is planning to destroy Graz'zt and take over his demesne, Azzagrat...

Appearance and personality
Galia's mind is a raging ocean of hatred, insanity and malevolence. He usually keeps his true mind locked behind a layer of arrogance and knowledge, but mental pressure can easily make him lash out and destroy everything nearby. Galia loves to use his vast intellect to stay one step ahead of his foes and allies alike and never reveals the entirety of his knowledge unless his very existence depends on it.

Galia is a relatively tall elf, standing at 5'9'', but weighing next to nothing due to his undead transformation. He prefers to wear elaborate and extremely expensive purple and red robes and a regal crown often adorns his head. His eyes are dead white and never seem to move, but there is no doubting his eternal vigilance.

Usually Galia appears as an angelic creature of outstanding beauty. The skin of this creaure is beautiful green and the lush white wings are usually folded around him like a celestial cloak. This form of his is, naturally, nothing but a facade to protect him from external attacks and suspicion.

Flaws: Noncombatant, Vulnerable
Environment: The snowy mountains of Finland
Organization: Solitary (unique)
Alignment: Lawful Evil
Languages Spoken: Common, Saame

Possessions: +6 ability boosters to charisma, dexterity, constitution, intelligence and wisdom, +3 tome to wisdom, +1 eager warning gauntlets, +1 splitting composite shortbow (with a high, high STR bonus), dozens of +1 spell storing arrows, monk's belt, masterwork drum, +10 competence bonus item to intimidate, belt of battle. Toss in whatever normal Clerics use: prayer beads, metamagic rods and so forth. Masterwork tools for all the skills I put ranks in and a variety of poisons are great for the fluff.

Spells prepared: 6/8/8/7/6/6/6/5/3/2.

Vestiges: Dantalion, Chupoclops, Haures. The EBL of the character is 16 so 7th level vestiges are available. Astaroth is mighty handy for cheating the WBL curve.

Numbers crunching and mechanical aspects: A Lapinnoita is a horrendous creature of the northern tundras. They act as shamans and are known for their ability to invoke create pain and anguish in those who are around them. They are also associated with storms and destruction of crops. Anguish is brought in to the game with the decent intimidation abilities, the piercing cold of Winter's chill and Chupoclops' Aura of sadness. The pain aspect is achieved with Spell storing arrows packed with Contagion and, of course, Poison spell is utilised here. This strategy is also thematically appropriate seeing how the pain-causing causing curse is called noidannuoli which translates to witch's arrow.

According to the legends a Lapinnoita travels like the wind or mere thought. It so happens that Dantalion offers an ability called Thought travel and with Haures a Lapinnoita can become essentially ethereal when moving. They also keep contacts to spirits and often join their world in meditation. How appropriate are vestiges and Astral projection here? The last method of travel commonly associated with the lapinnoita myth is becoming a bird and flying. Owl is a very Finnish bird and Druid levels were not thematically appropriate, so I used this option instead. Not the worst choice, right?

This Lapinnoita can also work as a sage without problems. Dantalion provides hefty bonuses to Knowledge checks and Lore ability can be acquired with other vestiges if the Bardic version (1d20+8 is not much) is not enough. All the divination spells from the Cleric spell list are also available and Miracle is, once again, an extremely helpful tool. The reason for the levels of Bard was not alone to get the skills and lore but to make sure that the musical aspect of Finnish shamans and sages is there. Finnish shamans usually carried a drum they played in their performances.

In short, the build has everything needed to make the Halloween of its opponents living hell. With disease, poison, demoralisation and all the other penalties make sure no-one gets away without punishment if they ever get close to the elusive witch, who can stop foes with a mere glance. A few persistent spells (six if you extend them too) can give this bad girl anything Miracle can reach and that is saying a lot. Superior resistance and Conviction keep the saves up and with full casting acquiring defenses is hardly a tough feat. Level adjustment buy off was used, hope that's alright.

A little summary of the abilities here:
-Able to cause her curses called witch's arrow in the form of disease transmitted by Contagion spell in a spell storing arrow. If possible, use Poison spell on the arrow for extra fun.
-Thought travel and transforming into a bird are right there with Dantalion vestige and lycanthrope template.
-Numbing cold achieved with Unseelie fey's Winter's Chill. This is enhanced with Aura of Sadness from Chupoclops.
-Wind travel is somewhat emulated with Ethereal movement of Dantalion's. Stormrage is a good possibility for a persistent spell here.
-Casting achieved with Ur-Priest.
-Sage role filled with Bardic abilities, divinations and Knowledge skills.
-Freezing people with a glance comes from Awe of Dantalion.
-Drumming actually gives something useful with Bard levels.
-Intimidation is a decent option if you have to be close to someone.

Character background: Lyrin is a rare offspring of an affair between a dwarven mercenary and a young countess of the fey court. A child with such a background is called a domovoi, a rare breed that inherits the hardiness of the dwarves and the elegance and grace of the fey. While domovoi are rare, they tend to be very visible in the communities they inhabit. They believe it is their duty to use their natural talents to ensure no-one around them goes hungry and they do all they can to make their homes comfortable for everyone. Despite this, domovoi hardly ever find solace in one place and move around settling in communities that need their help. Such too was the life of Lyrin until the dawn of his third century.

Shortly after his 300th birthday, the new ruler of a vast empire decided it was time to do away with all the old customs and habits his subjects had followed for ages. Entire towns were subjugated and in some cases outright enslaved. Only a few months passed before the young king had to deal with a full-scale rebellion. Thousands of peasants, blacksmiths and artisans marched against the king and scored a number of impressive victories. However, when their triumph seemed all but inevitable, the king revealed his diabolical plan. He had let the rebellion escalate only to crush it down once and for all, establishing himself as the undisputed ruler of his empire. Utilising his soldiers hardened by half a dozen wars and highly trained mages he swiftly eradicated most of the rebels, but some were dealt excruciating punishments in order to show how unwise it was to question his position.

Of course, Lyrin was such an example. He was put through torture beyond the worst nightmares of mortals; his form was altered, limbs torn of only to be reattached and torn again and that was only the beginning. When the king finally grew tired of torturing his prisoners he gave all of them the same punishment, to be transformed into a tree and then used to create the vast bonfire where the bodies of the rebels were burnt. This is where Lyrin's background saved him. His dwarven perseverance and his magically empowered blood made sure he would not truly die and a year and a day later he was reanimated from the ashes as a ghost sworn to get revenge for every single rebel that died during the uprising.

Lyrin is still new to his new form and having lost most of his memory during the time he spent in the afterlife he remains a cautious combatant. Due to his advanced age and inherent wisdom he knows better than to rush into action and still seeks a more subtle way to set things right...

Lyrin appears as a 4' dwarf of regal bearing, an clear sign of his fey heritage. He always wears an elaborate chainshirt he crafted before joining the rebellion, but tries to hide it under his precious cloak he received from his mother and has cherised eversince. His hair is red and always kept on a tight know, but unlike most dwarves, his beard reminds more of a five o'clock shadow than the long bears of his fathers' side.

Gratitude is a sickness suffered by dogs.
