Power Descriptions: Necromantic, Magical, Psychic.

History: The Baron Nicolas Necromme was born into a very wealth austere family with a history of dabbling in the black arts. The young Baron was soon spending all his time in the Necromme library, and developed a perverse aptitude for the horrors of necromancy. By the time he was head of the family, he had already mastered the arts and was spoken of in hushed tones in the village he resided, and beyond. The Baron cared for immortality first and power second, and soon foresaw a way to achieve the first – through his offspring. He thus acquired a second reputation, as father to scores of illegitimate children that he usually did not acknowledge or care for other to than to ensure their very basic needs and survival – and later, to try and ensure they themselves bore as many children as possible.

By the time the revolution came, Broken Crow, the master mage of the time, had tracked him down, and with the help of the young Rene deSaens, trapped the necromancer and his undead slaves in the Necromme mansion, burning it to the ground.

But that was not the end. Necromme somehow survived as an undead creature himself, his charred remains stored in a magic vessel. Whilst lacking a body, he could still exert a powerful psychic force from this position. And most importantly, he could seek out a new body – one of the Necromme descendants!

Personality & Motivation:

The Baron Nercomme is as cold hearted as they come. He desires immortality first, power second. This is peppered with a slight fascination with death, corruption, and perverting everything noble, good, or beautiful. How much of this is due to his inherent personality, how much due to his new state of “higher†being, and how much due to the frustration of years trapped in the Necromme mansion rubble, is hard to say.

Powers & Tactics:

Baron Necromme’s first priority is to get allies. He could do this either by undead minions (plot devices), seducing weak willed people with persuasion and intimidation (in combination with his dream control and communication powers) or otherwise direct mind control. All are equally attractive to him, he enjoys direct enslavement as much as corrupting people.

This is usually just the means to his next goal, getting a Necromme Heir to touch his container and thus swap souls (mind), entrapping his heir in the container and gaining himself a new body. There are plenty of ways to do this, directly seducing an heir with tales of power, or becoming a beautiful artefact, getting a slave to move him, or bringing an heir to him.

In combat, Baron Necromme will usually try to mind control to cause his attackers to fight amongst themselves, or alternatively use emotion control to cause love, fear, or despair amongst his enemies. If damaged or hurt, he will use necromantic drains to directly leech out his enemies life force and heal himself.
