Dramatis Persona

NPC

Enrico Folgore:

Enrico is a boisterous, flamboyant, and outspoken opera singer from Pescara, Italy. He maintains an estate on an island just off the coast of the city. He is wanted to perform by all of the royalty of Europe, though he will not perform in the Prussian Empire. He constantly flirts with every woman of any appropriate age. He is never forward and is always polite.  Recently Dr. Myra Smyth discovered during treatment of injuries that Falgore is not human, but rather a Tuatha De Danaan lord of the Sidhe.  Part of his true name is Midhir mac Calbach. He is a Knight Champion of the Selee court beholden unto Auberon.  This gives him significant power and influence in the world.  He disguises himself to allow his success as a singer to be credited with his extraordinary performance skills and not as a Fay using glamour.  A human singer of his caliber is incredible, a faerie is only some chap using his powers of allure to beholden you.  He has trained for almost 1200 years to achieve his extraordinary skill level.

Note: Falgore's unique shapechanging powers allow him to stand the touch of common iron or steel without the loss of form.  No one other than the Selee high court, and our own adventurers, know of this.  It is the only thing that allows him to bide his time disguised as a human without fear of discovery.



Albert Schweiser:

Dr. Albert Schweiser is the royal physician for the Emperor of Austria. He is an older man in his early 60’s and treats everyone he meets as a grandchild, even the emperor. He is at the forefront of research into the causes of disease, and was able to understand the “Malicians” that Dr. Von Malice was to unleash on Vienna.

He is very good with a train's systems and is considered one of the best steam engineers in school. This brought him to the attention of Dr. Von Malice who kidnapped his daughter and held her hostage to force Andrew to work for him.

Jonas Constantine:

Jonas is a pirate, smuggler, bandit, and black marketer who is always on the gray side of the law. He captains the fast clipper ship “Black Hawk” throughout the Mediterranean Sea and most of Europe. He has made trips to China and America, but does not regularly conduct business in these ports. He has bribed most of the port officials and does not need to make customs in any port he sails into.

He is steadfast against all forms of slavery, and will assist escaped slaves in any way that does not interrupt his profits. Most other forms of trade are open game for him.

Sir Adam Sinclair:

Sir Adam is a gentleman lawyer from lowland Scotland. He is a terrific Egyptian buff and travels to the region to search through the ruins of antiquity. He is a life-long bachelor and is currently traveling in a semi-retirement. He recently had a run in where his life was saved by Major Stern and he is exceptionally grateful for this. He is known to be an acquaintance of the Prince of Wales, but it is unknown how far this goes.

He was of some assistance with the saving of the slaves from the camp in Greece and took passage on Constantine’s vessel. He is currently traveling to stop an evil society bent of the destruction of society and the sowing of chaos throughout the world. This travel was interrupted by selecting a guide that would rather steal from him and leave him for dead rather than guide him to his final destination.  There is concern that Sinclair is working for foreign intelligence services as he was found snooping around a meeting of the Night Baron and our group of adventurers in Cario.

Francis Forrester:

Francis is a mad American inventor who is currently working for the Bavarian Secret Service. His time in America left his work plagiarized and himself penniless. He started his career in the Union Army learning both to soldier and how to pick up loose tinkering materials that the military no longer needed. He has been struck by lightning twice during his experiments, and this gives him a blasé attitude where electricity comes in. He is safe, just feels that it is no big deal.  He is currently working on an electron cannon that can be used against various steam-powered juggernauts.

When running from debts he joined the Bavarian Secret Service as a technical expert. He currently teaches at the Bavarian Technical Institute as a tenured professor. He is upset that much of his work is on secret projects that will not be shared with the rest of civilization.  He puts up with the Bavarian government, but wishes he had a bit more press on his creative genius.  If not that, he simply wants more money to work on the government projects.  Even with his salary and patent income he is still in debt due to his purchases for his experiments.
