Race / Were Fang

Twin Blade / Enchanter


Daiyu has had a profilic career even before the Apocalypse. She has repeatedly proven herself a skilled strategist as well as combatant, using her abilities in enchantment and alchemy to pick foes apart with frightening precision, or bolster her allies against the odds. She operates like a master chess player, always planning dozens of steps ahead and backup gambits to pursue her goals. When necessary Daiyu can also be a sabotuer and spy, utilizing the mystical grace and stealth of her Were Fang subspecies to get into places she shouldn't be able. The downside to her method of operation is that Daiyu hates to act before she has a tangible and achievable goal in her sight, that won't expend more time and resources than necessary for efficient execution. She can plan for days and weeks on end, but won't take course until she's certain of an acceptable outcome. This often makes the otherwise wiley vixen appear langourous and indifferent. Until she leaps into action like an elemental dervish when she sees her oppritunity. Aside to her mystic abilities her weapons of choice are the tessen fighting fan, and a dueling sword concealed in the shaft of a parasol.

"The winds of fate blow not in your favor this day." - Daiyu

Aschente! 2023 April 23rd
The town square of Dun Loireag has transformed over the course of a week into a festival dedicated to games of chance and skill. Everything from paying to food and drink to winning carnival prizes to ending up the next subject of the dunk tank is up to the whims of fortune. The only overarching rule is that each game is preceded by a binding oath of 'Aschente'... and that getting caught cheating is strictly not allowed. This isn't necessarily bizarre in and of itself, but the identity of the one sponsoring and organizing the whole thing /is./

That person: the Doctor of Tolbana, Prophylaxis.

What mischief is he up to? Will Alicia Rue lose it all in a game of strip poker!? (Probably not, rating is as rating does) And most importantly, who will go home with the mysterious grand prize!?

Find out here!!
