Lolito was born among a well established family of Korvosa, in Varisia. He grew as an spoiled teenager having access to all kind of commodities and soon fell into alcohol, drugs and prostitution. During this spiral of self-destruction chaos erupted in his city and economic support was put on the edge as vandalism and destruction menaced to finish his family income. It was then when a band of adventurers appeared to safe the city from chaos, that one of the adventurers promised to safe Lolito’s family and way of living under the promise he will clean himself from his vicious life and adhere to the way of the monk under his teachings.
It resulted this adventurer was a monk of the Platinum Band, who had came to expand Apsu’s fight against Dahak’s forces by defeating the evil dragon behind the chaos in Korvosa. As they were successful, Lolito hold his promise and from then on he travelled with his master through Golarion, searching for evil dragons and other Dahak’s followers, guarding the knowledge of Apsu, writing down the true history of the world and building up self-enlightenment as he discovered the draconic teachings and his own human limitations.
After decades of travel and adventures Lolito was prepared to become a monk of himself and so his master decided it was time for them to split parts and the new monk to find out his own student whom to pass the teachings of Apsu. During his travels, he met one person that wanted to follow the teachings of The Exiled Wyrm, and so, Lolito decided to show this person the ways of the monk.
Recently his student came to the conclusion a great menace of Dahak [or optionally an old piece of knowledge related with the history of the world and the knowledge of Apsu] was concealed in old Azlant. Against Lolito’s judgement his student enrolled into the expedition that travelled to build a colony on those lands. Despite knowing this fact, Lolito let his student to depart stealthy during the night, as he decided this was a teaching his student should discover alone.
That said, Lolito recently felt his student is in danger, and so, he decided to enroll himself in the expedition. His vast knowledge of travelling and exploration made it easy for him to convince the Bountiful Venture Company he shall be added to the most recent wave of colonists putting feet in their new Azlanti colony.
Note about the name of Lolito’s student: I think this works best if the GM selects a NPC from the first wave, as it gives a motivation for Lolito to find what has been of those people.
Personality and Appearance:
Lolito’s cheerful mood hides the enlightment of a man who has learned by stumbling with all stones there are to fall in the road of a man’s life. He is a person able to live with very little, but he is quick to give others as they need, to share his knowledge and help others in their own path of enlightenment showing a patience rare on short lived races as humans.
Lolito travels with very few equipment. Just some comfortable linen clothing and his nine-section whip rolled around his waist as if it was a belt. The man’s appearance is uncared, he lacks many teeth, no doubt the price of his early life vice. His hair is white and a prominent baldness gives him an old man’s appearance. Drawn onto his back, his clothes hide a large tattoo of a golden dragon.
High level character details:
Lolito will evolve to adapt to how the adventure actually plays out, but most likely he will keep leveling as an Unchained Monk, providing a resilient and skillful scout for the party, and becoming a solid secondary melee participant.
If aquatic combat becomes prevalent he will likely take aquatic combatant to improve his ability while the group fights underwater.
All in all, I see him advancing as an interesting and fun personality in the team with scouting abilities and a solid skill to support the group’s fighter in combat.
Level of familiarity with the AP:
I don’t own this AP, I have not read or glanced at the pages of any of it’s volumes. My knowledge comes from just reading the Player’s Guide and applying to GM Strider’s recruitment a couple of years ago.
My motivation for this AP is because I love the building a new colony and exploring an ancient civilization themes. I do know the open nature of the AP makes it more difficult to run in PbP as the GM is not able to push the party that easily through. That said I consider myself a good party pusher and lore motivated player. As such I hope to be a good addition to your party.
How many other PbP games are you involved in:
I am playing on 5 campaigns (including one of your Reign of Winter ones) and GMing one (Shackled City which we are past half-way to the end). Although I have time for more, I prefer to keep myself on those numbers so I can carefully read and participate with quality posts on those campaigns I am in.
That said, I am eager to play both Ironfang Invasion and Ruins of Azlant, and thus I still hope to get into one or both of those AP’s in the future.
