Flintlock (The Swashbuckling Sorceress)


Power Level: 10/15  (250/250PP)
Unspent Power Points: 0
Trade-Offs: None
In Brief: Pirate-Sorcerer with a dash of Lovecraft. And rum. 
Alternate Identity: Annabelle Flint 
Birthplace: Holland
Residence: On her ship (The Black Flag)
Base of Operations: Oceans and Coastlines around Freedom City
Occupation: Sorcerer
Affiliations: None
Family: None
Age: 337
Apparent Age: 25
Gender: Female
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Eyes: Green
Hair: Red (Dark)


Flintlock has no particular costume but will (nearly) always dress as a (historical) pirate, with a flintlock pistol. Other than that she appears as a tall woman with a deep suntan and long, dark red hair. She has several scars on her body and a number of maritime, arcane, and saucy tattoos on her body. 

Annabelle Flint was born in Holland, a bastard, to a seamstress and a priest. Her mother fled to the new world with young Annabelle in tow. Alas, ill fortune awaited them there, with disease, famine, and destitution. By the time she was fifteen, Annabelle had wrangled her way on to the decks of a pirate ship as a deck scrubber. She was a cunning, determined, and charming young lady, and had soon talked her way up the ranks, eventually becoming captain Flintlock, the ruthless pirate queen. 


Until one day, the Black Flag and her crew were sunk by Captain Blood. Annabelle swam to the nearest shore, living like a savage, until she was captured by a degenerate cult who worshipped the Yellow Sign. Originally a human sacrifice, once again her silver tongue saved her, and she was taken as a slave by their high priest. 


Annabelle was quick of wit and, whilst living under her quite mad master, learned his arcane ways, eventually growing strong enough to crush both her master and the cult. Now a powerful sorceress, she summoned up her ship, the Black Flag, and its crew from the depths of the ocean. 


Armed with her power, her cunning, and a bewitched ship that could speed through any sea, she set sail through strange coasts in this world and others in search of treasure, adventure, and the Yellow Sign. Having recently heard that the Yellow Sign has resurfaced in her world, she had navigated back to the coasts of America, and Freedom City…
Personality & Motivation:

Flintlock is, at heart, a rogue, a rapscallion, and a pirate. She can be brutal, ruthless, and deceptive. However, she is also a daring and dashing adventurer. Flintlock loves lost treasure, be it material or arcane.


From her experiences has arisen the mantle of an arcane defender of the mundane world. Particularly, she seeks to wipe out the cult of the yellow sign, and fears the horrible outer gods that dwell in equally horrible dimensions. The serpent people, the deep ones, and all such degenerate tribes are on her hit list. 


Aside from that, Flintlock has a special adversity to slavery or racial prejudice, and an equal dislike of maltreatment of women (many of her pirate crew were women and non-caucasians). She is a libertarian – to such an extent that she believes laws don’t completely apply to her. 
Powers & Tactics:

Flintlocks sorcery involves summoning spirits, which appear as ghostly white figures or shapes. Usually, she uses such apparitions as poltergeists, picking up, rending, and throwing her enemies around. For larger groups she will summon horrible spectres that scare her enemies. In desperate, brutal times, she will summon up spectral seawater to the lungs of a man, making him drown (a psychological effect but quite deadly). 


Her magic powers are not too broad; they revolve around creating / moving things in an intangible way (illusions, poltergeists), or manipulating somebodies spirit (e,g causing pain, pleasure, madness, or fear). 


Flintlocks tattoos protect her (to some degree) from injury or harm and the ravages of time. 


Aside from her sorcery, Flintlock is a capable fighter and pirate. Her greatest strength is her uncanny insight (giving her superhuman wisdom and charisma). 


Power Descriptions:

Flintlocks sorcery appears as ghostly figures, shapes, or forms. Spectres, ghouls, illusions, or even just giant hands or tentacles. 



Incantations: Flintlock must speak (or at least mutter) to use her sorcery. A gag will stop her.  
Greedy: Flintlock still seeks treasure of all sorts. 
Drunkard: Flintlock also still drinks, particularly rum, and enough to get drunk. She always gets quite drunk when using rituals. 
Enemy: With all the spirits she has commanded and dominated over the centuries, there is a good chance that any encountered spirit will be, at best, ill-disposed towards her, if not plain aggressive. 

Song: Flintlock will monologue, by song!

History: Centuries of wild living and infamy might be a problem. From jilted lovers Like Captain Nemo, to the fear and loathing of modern day Somalian pirates. There is much to have as plot hook and complication. 

Unruly: Whilst Flintlock technically has fanatical minions, and summons bound spirits, such sorcery is dangerous. Experienced as she is, under certain circumstances they may disobey, misinterpret commands, or demand some awful price (i.e. create drama) for services. Even the Black Flag might be semi sentient. A semi-sentient pirate ship. This all means the GM can step in to play any spirit. In any case, Flintlock does not unleash these powers without good reason.

So sorted. 

On further reflection, I have slightly modified Illusion to have the phantasm flaw (as it makes more sense and is more interesting), and slightly modified the Suffocate to coastal areas only (again, more sense and more interesting). Hope that is ok.
