Ventus may have been young for a sylph, but that was because she was a squire, not a fully fledged knight, and to build attachment to Hans, and she has neither a 5 con nor a life of slavery, 12 Con before items, sure. Slayer levels, definitely.That's good to hear, and I shouldn't have brought it up. I deleted it because it was too personal, and a low blow. I apologize.
thank you, apology accepted, please be careful about bringing up such a low blow again. just because i am a fan of the lolita fashion subculture and the cute anime girls that utilize it, because they are cute, doesn't make me a certain word i would rather not say. i did use a lot of dark and creepy backstories, but i am trying to reduce the creepiness. i may include bullying or abuse in a character's backstory, just not the stuff that Kira Moonsong, Kurogetsu Yamiko and Atsuko Aniri went through because i am doing my best to change that for hopefully the better.
my current Umbriere clone in the current Savage worlds campaign on saturdays is youthful and anemic, but the technology level of the setting is so advanced that she is fighting with a plasma pistol and light tactical power armor with a hologram projector and energy shield, not a melee build, still stealthy and persuasive to a point, but more classic rogue with a title and less creepy bard. her mother is still a fey alchemist and her rich uncle was genderswapped to a rich aunt due to fey matriarchy. but she is nowhere near as helpless in combat and her sickliness served as a reason for encouraging her to focus on wearing power armor and using a plasma pistol instead of adopting normal fey magic, because she didn't have the health for neither arcane magic nor the health for physical combat. power armor carries it's own weight and plasma ammo is weightless.
