Character Name: Aggy
Full Name: Aggy Cassana
Occupation: Spy for the Faceless Man
Birth Place: Brevane, Ardent Domain, Cassana Estate
Appearance: Standing a tall 5’11”, Aggy carries herself with much grace and dignity. Despite her height, she is nimble and quick. Her sparkling, emerald eyes are full of warmth and sometimes even mischief, but all is done in good jest. She carries her honey golden hair is usually tide up into a pony tail.
Identifying marks/Quirks/Signature items: A small band of light green markings stretch around her neck, but she doesn’t remember how, where and why she got those tattoos. She prefers dark leather garments and usually covers her head with a hood, which she can pull over her face, in order to avoid recognition. Her signature weapons are two daggers, which she can spin and twirl during her deadly blade dance.
Her strong sense of justice and to do what is right can sometimes interfere with her missions. However, she has no qualms of defending herself if she must. Currently, she is assigned to Brevane. She fights the Strom Legion with a fervor that sometimes borders on obsession and she often wonders why that is.
When she is not spying for the Faceless Man, she enjoys the peaceful and tranquil atmosphere of Tempest Bay. Here, she can easily lose herself in creating outfits or crafting runes. She likes to work with the various materials and she gets a sense of satisfaction after having created a useful piece of equipment.
After a particular difficult mission, Aggy withdraws to her private estate located in Dolcega Valley. The tranquil solitude does wonders to her soul and sometimes, she believes she can catch fleeting glimpses of a past that eludes her.
Aggy was born on Cassana Estate during a time of peace and tranquility. Back then, the Citizen’s Library was a place of great beauty and learning. People came from all across Brevane to admire the divine architecture of the City Core and to peruse the large collection of books at the library.
Markets sold exotic goods, shipped across the sea from the Kingdom of Pelladane. Market day was always a busy one. People traveled long distances through the humid jungles, without fear of abominations. The only thing they had to look out for was an occasionally irritated rhino, maybe a bear or a wild cat. However, overall the roads where kept save by stout soldiers.
Aggy was one of those soldiers, serving her country and keeping the people safe. Her patrol route stretched from her home, Cassana Estate, east to the Vaud Tower and then north, up to Karthan Inn. She enjoyed her route, since it lead through an arid region, into the lush City Core with its amazing buildings and gardens. On hot days, she lingered at the Inn, but did not partake in the good mead that was sold there, but opted instead for water.
This all changed when Crucia’s gaze fell onto Brevane and she desired its glory, its beauty and its power. She needed a place to call her own, so she could hedge a plan of attack.
Crucia’s influence spread across Brevane like a raging thunder storm, encompassing everything and everyone. Large stretches of land were completely changed and instead of bears and wild cats, abominations now walked the jungles. Soldiers were turned into Storm Legions without their consent. Well, some of them followed the Storm Queen willingly.
Aggy was among those who didn’t fight the change. Crucia had succeeded in turning Aggy’s mind, to make her believe that a dire wrong had been committed. Her strong sense of right and wrong was a greater drive than the lust for power others coveted.
After fighting for Crucia for several months, she came across a small village. Only the children and the elderly remained. Her platoon had the order to destroy everyone, because they had spoken out against Crucia.
Seeing the innocence in the children’s eyes, Aggy turned and commanded her troops to lay down arms and not spill the blood of those who can’t defend themselves. When they refused, Aggy turned her blades against her comrades. For the first time, she knew that what she did was right. That Crucia had lied to her.
And so, with her last breath, Aggy begged for redemption. For a chance to make it all right, to stop the Blood Storms, to stop Crucia and her ilk.
When she awoke, she found herself in a chamber with strange machines.
“Where, where am I?” she uttered confused, while trying to remember her lineage, her fighting prowess, but it was as if her past did not exist. All she could remember was her first name.
“You are in Mathosia, Ascended. You were part of the soulstream and I was able to pull you through to this side. Now, no more time for questions, we must get you to the time machine,” the man called out and pointed at the exit.
A war raged on the other side of the threshold. Abominations fought against soldiers and machines. Aggy walked on unsteady legs towards the carnage. Before she stepped outside though, she turned back to the man who had brought her back from the dead.
“What will happen once I step through the time machine?” she asked with an unsure voice.
“You will return to the past in order to right a wrong,” was all the man said, before shooing her out of the door once more.
Grey and subdued skies covered the path to the time machine, which lead through destroyed villages and Mathosian war camps. Most towns had been taken over by abominations; their citizens had fled or were killed. The Endless Court under the rule of Alsbeth the Discordant and Regulos the Destroyer had taken over. They were planning of unleashing the dragons into the world and nothing will be as it once was.
All this, Aggy learned from a woman named Asha Catari, an Arcane Warrior of the Dragonslayer Covenant.
When Aggy finally reached the time machine and stepped through it, she remembered the words of the dying Asha Catari.
“You are sent back to warn our people of a failed future. Tell them that if nothing is done, the world will fall and the dragons will devour it. If you fail, then everything we have fought for will be in vain.”
