Elan: This NPC is perfect
for romantic sub plots since she will be traveling with the party
during most of the adventures. She is initially attracted to strong,
stoic types, who remind her of her capable grandfather. However
she eventually tires of these people and may become more interested
in flashy scoundrels who make casual but spicy banter.
Note: she will rebuff these people when first met but if
they do not give her cause to dislike them she becomes easily enamored
of their easy going ways. Could lead to interesting conflict if
she switches her attention from one player to another.
Black Lily: Lily is an
odd one for a romantic sub plot, but a very likely one. She is attracted
to handsome men who she can manipulate. She is something of an emotional
sadist and enjoys putting people in bad positions. For example,
she will threaten to do bad things to others to get her way. Lily
could eventually come to care for someone who shows her genuine
attention and care, but her relationships are often with other pirates
who want her position or wealth.
Black Thorn: Black Thorn
is another possible love interest for a female party member but
he is exceedingly cautious about all romantic entanglements. He
is enamored of a lifestyle with nobility and would be attracted
to someone with a cultured air or perhaps a full elf who did not
look down on him for his half-breed status. One thing to remember
is although Blackthorn is paranoid about his safety, he is very
lonely. His life does not offer time for close relationships.
Shar the Cold: Another strong
female, Shar is attracted to men who either prove themselves equally
knowledgeable about battle and tactics or men who are total opposites,
those who are more carefree and casual. She sees those type of men
more as kept pets. She is liable to make a potential suitor prove
his loyalty towards her.
Marne: This psychotic elf
is not really a viable choice for a romantic subplot. She is a brutal
sadist who lashes out almost randomly. She would be attracted to
males who have soft skin and handsome looks but she would eventually
carve her own art on their hide.
Phantasm: This being will
not be attracted to anyone. He will toy with anyone thinking to
get closer to it in a romantic fashion.
Kangran: This committed
individual would show a female player a good time when she was in
Laribus. However he is devoted to duty first and foremost and is
unlikely to leave the city for any extended periods. He would like
to start a lasting relationship but is unlikely to be happy with
a world-traveling player.
