Organization: Order of Assassins (Modern Day)
Sex: Female

Character Description:
     A somewhat tall dark haired woman with a fair olive complexion, her dark chocolate brown eyes seem to always be moving, taking in the world around her.  She keeps her hair covered with a white colored turban.  Her other attire consists of a slightly oversized white and red hoodie, stone washed denim jeans and a good pair of running shoes. Her shoes look like she has been everywhere in them and probably stepped in plenty of curious things that a Mister Clean Eraser could not remove.  Otherwise, her clothing is clean and stain free.   When she moves her left arm, there seems to be something creating a slight bulge visible on her inner arm.

The Rhakasah Heresy (Lore)
The Rhakasah Heresy
 To Whom it May Concern,
    The Rhakasah Heresy is a belief system about the Force that has surfaced out of Wild Space over the last few years, as more inhabitants from Wild Space have begun to travel within the Rim Worlds.  This heresy has found some popularity among some of the force sensitive beings living in neutral aligned space, in particular, on the Void Station.  Seeking the origin of this heresy has only led me to the mention of the Rhakasah, who seem to be an extra-galactic race.  When I have asked what the word Rhakasah means, I am told it means 'I do not know.'  I managed to pick pocket a Fetch's journals on Void station.  I had to use the Force in order to read these journals because they are not written in any language that I recognized.  Upon reading the contents, I was even further alarmed to discover that this heresy is not just a belief system but a way of practicing the Force.  This heresy

Character Name: Ekaterina Volkov

Character Type: Vampire

Nature/Demeanor:      Cavalier/Confidant

Clan: Gangrel

Sex: Female

Age: 165 yrs. old


Physical description:   This is a woman with vibrant blue eyes set in a face possessing traditional slavic features.  Framing her face is  a thick mane of extra long medium golden brown curly hair that has been woven into two braids on either side of her head.  Her braids fall down just below her waist. She wears a fur hat and a fur trimmed long cut vest with bone and hemp toggle closures.   Also, she is wearing loose fitting black pants tucked into the tops of fur trimmed boots, which lace up to just over her calves.


Character History:  Ekaterina Volkov was born during the late 1800s in Russia.  In 1870, Russia had just begun to offer vocational subjects taught to girls in school and Ekaterina walked with Zoya, her younger sister, to the nearby school to see if they might both be able to gain some education.  At the time, Ekaterina was seventeen years old and the eldest student in her class.  Pyotr Velikiy, her teacher had her tutor the younger students in content that Ekaterina had already mastered.  As time passed, Ekaterina's teacher seemed to develop a fondest for her though she did wonder about some of his peculiar behaviors.  One such behavior was that he would never venture out into the sunlight and he had nailed shut the shudders on the school house to keep them closed.  Ekaterina and the other students would do all their studies by lamp light.  Sometimes, Pyotr would ask Ekaterina and Zoya to run errands for him in town during the day.

    One evening, Pyotr Velikiy asked Ekaterina to stay late in order to help him hang a map which he had ordered.  Ekaterina suspected that her teacher wanted an excuse to see her home afterwards with the intent of speaking to her father about her hand in marriage. Zoya remained at the school house as a chaperone.   When the map hanging was finished,  all three of them started to head back.  It was winter time and the ground was covered with a fresh new carpet of sparkling snow.  The three of them could hear wolves howling in the distance and within the nearby treeline it sounded like some creature of the night cried out in pain.  Ekaterina did not understand when Pyotr told her to stay with her sister while he went into the woods.   Ekaterina stood there holding the lantern and Zoya's hand for sometime before calling out her teacher's name.  No one answered. Only the wind howled.

    It was quite sudden for the two of them when a wolf burst out of the treeline and charged for Ekaterina and her sister.  Both of them screamed when the wolf lunged for the younger of the two girls and knocked her down in the snow.   Ekaterina swung the lantern at the wolf's head until it shied away.  Keeping her eyes on the wolf, Ekaterina knelt beside Zoya and called her name.  When her sister didn't answer, Ekaterina glanced at her sister's torn form.  It was that moment that the wolf chose to strike.  Ekaterina could still remember the feel of its fangs sinking into her flesh, the sudden paralysis that seemed to overtake her.   Her pulse pounded in her ears and she stared dumbfounded up at the stars while the wolf became a man...her teacher.  She felt herself slipping away just as Pyotr pulled away from her to look down at her.  Then she saw him tear his own wrist open with his teeth and felt him press his wrist against her mouth, letting gravity pour his blood down her throat.  Ekaterina wanted to cry and choke on the blood at the same time.  The longer he held his wrist to her mouth, the more of his blood she wanted.   She could hear him murmuring to her the words, "I am so sorry. I am so very sorry."

    Later he would take her from her home town forever, leaving behind her younger sister's mangled body staining the snow red.  Ekaterina would remember that night. Pyotr would tell her that he was in love with her and she would not beileve him.   She learned what little her sire and teacher would teach her.  Pyotr Velikiy did not completely trust her with good cause for Ekaterina plotted her sire's death in revenge for her sister's brutal death.  Ekaterina waited.  One night her Sire returned to her severly wounded and Ekaterina seized her moment. In his weakened state, Ekaterina drank Pyotr Velikiy dry.  She did not care about the consequences because she did not want to live.  Ekaterina just hoped that when she destroyed her Sire that his soul would be damned to the worst level of hell for what he had done to her and her sister.

     Ekaterina searched for an old silver mine which had been condemned for its lack of stability.  She went as far as she could inside it  before forcing its collapse by destroying what remained of some supports.  Buried in the darkness beneath rock, it was Ekaterina's hope that she would never wake again.  Her hope was not to be realized.   Eventually, Ekaterina was found.  No one ever found the poor prospectors who happened across her body.  Now, Ekaterina travels through a strange world seeking purpose where she is convinced none exists, except the purpose you create.  She listens with avid interest to whatever others might confide to her, seeking some affirmation that all the virtues and beliefs with which she was raised might be true.

Just recently, I performed something that is generally viewed as a no-no. I wrote an OC for Star Wars, who is a prodigy, to actually play in a game!  Now, why is this a no-no? 

First, most people I have met think Wesley Crusher from Star Trek: The Next Generation when they hear the word prodigy and many of those same people have told me that they can not stand Wesley Crusher.  When I have asked them why they did not like the character, either they could not give me a reason or they said it was because he was so smart.

To me, 'the character wasn't dumb enough' is not a good enough reason to me not to write a Prodigy. No, I did not write this character with Wesley Crusher in mind and Tywyll Heliwr bares little resemblence to him.

Second, It is really hard to write a prodigy character who is not a Mary Sue.

So how would I avoid that second obstacle? I looked at prodigy characters and real life prodigies that people actually like.

Remember Quantum Leap?

Dr. Samuel "Sam" Beckett could do advanced calculus in his head at age 5 and by around age 24 had 6 to 7 Doctorate Degrees.  Anyone who watched the program knows that Sam was not a perfect character, that he had flaws.  The program was so well liked that you could not argue that people hated the main protagonist for being a prodigy.  For all his brilliance, could he solve every problem on his own? No!

Remember Dougie Howser, M.D.?

Alright, this one was a comedy and there is going to be some exaggeration of things involved so everyone gets their laugh. Kind of the same thing with Big Bang Theory, which really exaggerates stereotypes.  Anyways, Dougie is 14 years old when he completes Medical School. In the beginning, the other Doctors do not know what to make of Dougie or what to do with him, they think a joke has been played on them.  At the same time, Dougie Howser is just trying to do his best to interact with his colleagues. This makes a good story.

Familiar with Numb3rs?

Dr. Charlie Eppes attended University at age 13 and graduated at 16 years old. Like Dr. Samuel "Sam" Beckett, he also has several Doctorates.  Yes, the character is flawed and relating with others is sometimes difficult for the character but not impossible.  In fact, part of the running storyline is Dr. Charlie Eppes's attempts to better relate socially with others.

I am curious to know, how many here hate the series 'Davinci's Demons'?

I've known some DMs to look like they wanted to run and hide at the thought of a player having a Polymath for a PC. I saw less of this reaction after White Wolf publishing put out there Storytelling game series, which changed the way table top and online gaming on M.U.S.H.es and M.O.O.s were played.

Games like AD&D and Star Wars changed over to the D20 system in an effort to compete with a character building system that did not encourage min maxing on character sheets using some system designed for strictly villian of the weak dungeon crawls, with the repetitive cycle of gaining more treasure, equipment and powers as the constant main goal.

White Wolf's D10 system still beats the pants off of the D20 system because you get rewarded for actually role playing your character and telling a story through play with others.

I actually blame West End Games and TSR for the whole 'No, no. Anything but a polymath in the hands of a player character!' attitude that DMs have had in the past.

But these Prodigy characters are all fictional people...


Dr. Charlie Eppes's character is based off of the real life Richard Feynmon.

Well, these are all male characters and your character is female...

Look up Hedy Lamarr.  She is the reason why you can even be reading this journal entry today.  Her work laid down the foundation for the whole internet.

Now, in my personal experience... 

While attending University, I met Ilyana Mansfield. At the time, she was something like nine years old.  She was only auditing classes because either the University would not allow her to take the credited classes or her family could not afford to do so.  My experience with Ilyana Mansfield was not just one chance meeting in a University class. Ilyana Mansfield is a good friend of mine that I have known for years.

Also, I am above average intelligence. I believe that there should be great stories told about all kinds of people. That includes the really smart ones. This is not me arguing for Mary Sue characters.  Mary Sue does not make for a great story.  R.A. Salvatore's fans became annoyed when Drizzt d'urden always won his fights and never really got injured or died after more than six books.  Finally, R.A. Salvatore had Artemis Entreri kill Drizzt in a fight for that very reason. R.A. Salvatore's fans were happier once Drizzt actually had to be taken to a temple to be resurrected!

But really smart people never make mistakes and never need any body else's help!

Have you seen Doctor Who?

'It is amazing how someone so brilliant can be so thick!'
                                                                    ----Doctor Who
"Oh! I am so thick! Why didn't I see it?!
                                                                   ----The Doctor, Doctor Who

Anyways, where was I?  Oh, yes! My cardinal sin of creating a prodigy character.  I looked at qualities and flaws of prodigies both fictional and real to help me come up with Tywyll Heliwr and I hope that she is a character that others will come to love. If not love, then at least love to hate.
