Meet the Iconics: Imrijka

Thursday, October 11, 2012

Wails regularly echo through the eastern wing of Gravecharge, Pharasma's cathedral in the university city of Lepidstadt. Yet such aren't the breathless screams of the dead that so often ring through the corners of Ustalav, but rather the cries of life. Since its construction, Gravecharge has maintained a clean and well-supervised hospice for sick and orphaned youths. Just as the goddess Pharasma concerns herself with the transition of life to death, so does she cherish even the most tragic lives.

Imrijka came to Gravecharge in the arms of a city watchman, wrapped in a tattered uniform and held at arm's length. The guard claimed his patrol had found "the thing" during their dawn patrol to the Spiral Cromlech, a Kellid ruin overlooking the city that was notorious for ill fortune and mysterious disappearances—but never for mysterious appearances. Hearing a babe bawling amid the moon-bleached standing stones, the guards bold enough to investigate momentarily took her for some stray fiend-child and almost slew her amid the eerie ruins. Identifying her as a half-orc infant did little to stay the hands of those ready to mete out death, but the argument that matters of life and death should be left to Pharasma sheathed the blades of those not truly eager to spill a child's blood—regardless of the color of her skin.

Dubbed Imrijka after Gravecharge's first high priestess, Imrijka Castavelik, the pistachio-skinned girl was cleaned, clothed, and given a place among the cathedral's other orphans. At first she terrified those youths, being larger, stronger, and more vicious in her biting than some children double her age. But only for a time. The priestesses of Pharasma explained the mysteries of their goddess's will and the vastness and variety of her creations, teaching the children that they were blessed to have such a unique new sister. For a time, behind the cathedral's walls, that was even the truth.


Illstruation by Wayne Reynolds

When she was old enough to understand and be understood, Imrijka reported to the offices of Jarlos Teym, Gravecharge's high exorcist, for the first time. He asked her a great deal about her life, how she felt about her studies, the clergy, the other children, and if there was anything he could do to make things more comfortable for her. A shy girl, Imrijka declined. Subsequent discussions bent toward the future, Imrijka's dreams, her prayers, and her vision for a long life. Finally, though, after months of building a rapport with the girl, Teym asked about her past. But for Imrijka, life began with the cathedral, priestesses, and other orphans. Teym pressed, insisting on answers, even verifying them with magic. After one particularly intense interview, a confused Imrijka finally started asking her own questions: Why did it matter? Why did Teym care? Couldn't what she might be outweigh what she might have been?

Deeming her mature enough to know, Teym explained his tenacity: someone had come to adopt Imrijka. Thrice. Every Kuthona for the past 3 years. First came a man dressed like a count's footman, articulate and with more questions than answers. He left after raising the clergy's suspicions with his too-pointed inquiries about Imrijka. A year later he returned, this time with a human woman of vulpine beauty who claimed to be Imrijka's mother—though her apparent age made that only the barest possibility. It was Teym's own suspicions and skill at discerning lies that kept the strangers from Imrijka, and the unusual pair left with wordless detachment. Finally, only a few months past—days before Teym's first meeting with Imrijka—the two strangers returned, led by a man dressed in white and silver. The bold newcomer spoke as one used to being obeyed and demanded Imrijka be handed over to him. Teym personally denied him, insisting to know what right he had to the girl. A father's right, the man persisted. The high exorcist ordered them out of the cathedral in that instant, but before they obeyed the man in white smiled. "She's not like us," he said, eyes glimmering. "Excellent."

Despite Teym's explanation, Imrijka understood only that her parents had come for her and that the high exorcist had sent them away. She held back both questions and tears, nodding blankly until Teym excused her. But she didn't return to her room. Rather, she exited through the front doors of Gravecharge and out onto the snowy streets—where someone waited.

A man in white sat upon the icy benches of the nearby circle, slowly feeding bits of shredded meat to the crows. Seeing Imrijka enter the plaza through the flurry of sound-deadening snow, he rose and walked toward her. Wary, she approached. In his gloved hand appeared a strange token, a disk etched with barbaric symbols and a figure impaled upon a spear. She reached for it.

A merciless iron arrow shattered the man's hand, sending the strange icon spiraling into the snow. Teym stood across the circle, another arrow nocked in his bent hawthorn bow. Around him whipped the black-edged crimson of Pharasma's inquisitors, woven flames that engulfed any flakes the whirling wind blew against them. "Back, girl," he commanded in a voice Imrijka had never heard him use.

The man in white might have been carved of ice. He had never flinched. Though the icon was knocked away, a tangle of disjoined fingers and bloodless flesh-ribbons remained outstretched toward Imrijka. Her small tusks clattered against her teeth, but she didn't scream.

"Another time, dear," the man whispered, just for her. Then the snow whirled around him. For a moment he seemed to be one with the cold, a blizzard-born prince. Then he was gone, leaving Imrijka cold and frightened—but not alone. High Exorcist Teym's cloak around her was heavy, and warm, and smelled strongly of tobacco and dust—what Imrijka imagined a grandfather should smell like. It didn't smell anything like the man in white.

Until Imrijka reached maturity and was fully able to defend herself, she rarely left Gravecharge Cathedral. When finally she did, it was in the crimson and black of an initiate inquisitor of Pharasma's faith. Even after the retirement of High Exorcist Teym, she continued to serve the church and the man she'd adopted as her grandfather, assisting him in his more scholarly pursuits as a consultant on religious antiquities at the University of Lepidstadt. She's traveled much of Ustalav and beyond—guarded an expedition to the boney towers of Kalexcourt, spent a night in the haunted hotel known as House Beumhal, been shouted off the porch of retired monster hunter Ailson Kinder (but not before getting her copy of Hunter's Moon signed), and had numerous other adventures. She regularly returns to Gravecharge, where several of her childhood companions have grown into positions within the church's sphere of influence—including Brel Vhalsik, an argumentative Kellid theologian with whom she shares a complicated relationship. But increasingly her interests and Teym's research send her beyond Ustalav's borders, where she treads with her goddess's blessing, bringing judgment to all who would violate the laws of life and death. In her travels she's faced significant prejudice, but tales of Pharasma's "monster monster-hunter" and Imrijka's ever-present arsenal convince most bigots to keep their fool mouths firmly shut. Through it all, she's never seen the man in white again—at least, not with total confidence, as there have been far too many shadows and half-recognized faces to be sure. She recovered his strange gift on that snowy day and wears the disk openly, hoping that someone someday might recognize it and lead her to some hint of where she came from and who she was. But for now, the future holds far greater promises for Imrijka, and she strides into it boldly, confident in her faith, where she's going, and who she is.

What a bait-and-switch! Still scratching my head.

Y'know, that's another PR boost this story provides, one for inquisitors.

That class has been struggling against some stereotypes on the boards for a while now, with them usually constrained to a decidedly non-heroic flavor at the worst of times. This story shows some of their possible positive aspects that new players can look to without feeling pushed into Monty Python/Warhammer 40k/Witchfinder General territory. :)

But yeah, when she first appeared in color art I think people were torn on whether she served Asmodeus or Sarenrae due to the colors. ;)


The spiky motifs embellishing the robe gave it a "hard" appearance that reminded me of Asmodeus' unholy symbol.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules Subscriber

Yeah, I can see that now. I think when I first saw it in color it was only via a very very tiny picture in the back of a Wayfinder issue, so I was seeing the gold trim a bit more than the black.


There's also that golden statuette hanging from her belt; it looks sort of Sarenrae-like.

Am I the only one who really liked the "pistachio colored skin" reference? It's wonderful to hear a more nuanced description of an orc skin tone then just straight green.

Such is the life of a Half-Orc ...

It's not that easy being green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold
Or something much more colorful like that

It's not easy being green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're
Not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky

But green's the color of Spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like an ocean, or important
Like a mountain, or tall like a tree

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why
Wonder, I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful
And I think it's what I want to be

F.W.S's slightly over-the top writing style (those damned echoes of breathless screams, my chandelier is shaking already!) is strangely fitting here. Well done!

Oh, I particularly like the "pistachio" skin as well, and all the rest. Lots of fun possibilities with her background.

In these sorts of fantasy character descriptions, 'nut-brown' is not uncommon as a descriptor, but this is definitely the first time I've heard someone described as 'pistachio-green.'

SInce the coming of APG, Imrijka has been my favourite iconic. She is mysterious, cool, sports an nice array of weapons and is half-orc (my favourite race when I first started D&D) and top of all that, Half-orc lady! So this when this story popped up in the blog, I stopped everything I was doing, and read it.

It was awesome.

I'm very glad to see her story. Thank you.

I eagerly await F. Wesley Schneider writing Galdyce's Guest and Hunter's Moon for the Pathfinder Tales novel series. Both should be written under the nom de plume of Ailson Kindler, of course.

I really want Galdyce's Guest to be a real novel. My sandbox is centered on Sen's Pass.

F. Wesley Schneider, if you could suggest to me where in Amaans to find Sen's Pass, I would be very grateful. (It isn't on the maps of Ustalav I've seen.) Without further details, I'm putting Sen's Pass on the High Senir River in Northwestern Amaans, but I'd love to have a canon location for the location.

Of course if you elect not to respond on the topic of Sen's Pass, I understand. Still, you should definitely write Galdyce's Guest and Hunter's Moon for the Pathfinder Tales series. Doo eeet!

:-)


I haven't had anything to respond to this except yaaaaaay, and that's all I really have to say. Well, actually--I don't honestly pay much attention to the Golarion setting or fiction or iconics. I read this story and enjoyed it. So that's damn good.

That's an interesting point. I'm fairly certain there's a spell out there that forcefully reincarnates a target into the body of a baby of a random race.

Oh very frickin' cool! Well if it's a pass it should be on a traveled route, so I'd suggest drawing a snaking trail between Chateau Douleurs, the Monastery of the Veil, and Kavapesta. I'd place Sen's Pass somewhere along that route. So yeah, your placement makes a lot of sense. Having this be on the route to Caliphas, but just outside its border, has some interesting implications for Viscount Galdyce and his connections to or avoidance of Luvick Siervage's brood in the capital.

In fact, unless I can find some contradiction (doubtful) I'm putting this on our big continuity map in the editorial pit!

I actually really hope this isn't the case, especially since she's the only half-orc iconic and learning the truth about the biggest half-orc name in modern Golarion still kind of stings from the half-orc fan point of view.

Crazy unusual parentage though...lot to wonder about there.


nice, I'd been wondering if the iconics were going to be expanded on anymore. have been wanting to learn a bit more about the summoner for a while.

This little story was good, interesting take on the half-orc and inquisitor.

Very cool! I look forward to future maps of Ustalav. If it's not exactly where I imagine it, my players don't know the setting enough that they'll notice when I ret-con my location to match canon.

I'm not joking about you writing Galdyce's Guest though. I want to read it.

Note that I said Northwestern Amaans and I meant Northeastern Amaans. I assume you knew what I meant though because everything you mentioned was also in Northeastern Amaans. I'm glad I mentioned the High Senir (which is in Northeastern Amaans) as a reference point. I basically picked that location because it was mountainous and I was looking at the SEN in Sen's Pass and High Senir. Probably no relation, but I went with it anyway.

I can't wait for updated Ustalav maps now. I've got my Carrion Crown Ustalav map framed.

Enjoyed the write-up on Imrijka too. First I've actually noticed a Pharasmin orphanage but it makes sense.


Great write up for Imrijka, Wes.

Did anyone else imagine Pharasmins to dress in Blue not Red. Or do more Veteran Inquisitors wear blue?

Cheliax

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The thing about inquisitors is that they're not necessarily a part of the established clergy. They answer to their deity and to their deity alone. I imagine this extends to clothing trends as well. Inquisitors dress however they want.

That's not to say that inquisitors can't comform to some kind of agreed upon trend. For instance, there might be a lot of ceremony and rigid structure present within the brotherhood that has formed among the inquisitors operating out of Gravecharge, resulting in a trend calling for red attire.

Another thing about inquisitors in general, I think, is that they want to stand out. They want people to know when they're in the company of an inquisitor with all the fear and trepidation that knowledge brings with it. Should an inquisition call for a subtler approach, then an inquisitor simply won't stand out.

That's how I see it at least. I'm sure Mr Schneider has a much cooler explanation. :)


Coooool, Awesome, fantastic. One of my favorite blog post ever. Provides a lot of inspiration for me. What alignment does she have?

Agree with Fenris_Chosen, I want more of this story!

exactly, it would be situational I think.....you want to blend in when you need to, but sometimes you need to walk down the main street and have all the villagers screaming "oh crap!". Not as formal a uniform as say Jordans White Cloaks but some type of symbol of office to strike fear into the hearts of the unrighteous.

Blue is definitely popular among the majority of Pharasmins (Pharasma is known as the Blue Lady after all). That said, we've seen a number of her priests in purple (PF #44 and Blood of the Night [newly posted cover!]) and red like you see here, which likely has some symbolic blood related meaning within the church--something to the effect of garbing its inquisitors in this shade so they never forget the blood they've spilled and the seriousness with which death should be meted out.

There's also room for some variation between nations and cultures when it comes to religious raiments. The garb Kyra wears, for example, is obviously suited to warmer climes, and would have some variation in the far north (actually, we'll see her arctic getup in Player Companion: People of the North). This would go doubly for Pharasma's church in a region like Ustalav where the more puritanical sect of her faith known as the Pharasmin Penitence preaches. Gravecharge isn't a bastion of that sect (that's mostly a central and eastern Ustalav thing), but elements and philosophies might creep in.

Totally totally! Good point. While Imrijka will always be shown in this or very similar garb (since she has to because of her role as an iconic), inquisitors shouldn't feel like they ALWAYS have to wear their "LOOK! I'M AN INQUISITOR!" clothes.

I know Pharasma is neutral, but her inquisitors can be one step away from her alignment. That means Imrijka is N, LN, NG, CN or NE. So have you decided what alignment she has?

Is pronounced "Imrijka". Is hard to pronounce properly if not fluent in the mother tongue. Most companions says "im-ree-kah". Is close enough.
