This is for your ooc knowledge only. Do not assume your character knows this. If you want to discover it ic, clear it with me first.

Poems, Notes, and Diary Entries

Wretched Girl (early life)

14th of March,
I did it. He's gone, but somehow I thought it would be different. I've finally rid myself of my source of torment and all I can think about is how alone I am. Oh well, no use worrying about that now. There is a whole world to explore outside of the Dark Forest that I can't wait to see. Perhaps there is a place where I can figure out how to use the magic surging inside of me. Tomorrow I'll head to Kelay Way and poke about the Sage Forest a bit. Who knows? Maybe somebody there can be my teacher... 

-Excerpt from the "Diary of a Swamp Girl"

Who is this wretched girl?

With black hair greasy and eyes all mixed up

That must be Quintessa of Black Pond

With arms too gangly

With legs too thin

Why is she here?

Why does she meddle in our affairs?

Quintessa is everywhere

A bloodline as dark and twisted as the woods she came from

From east to west they tell of her misdeeds

It's better to leave her alone

Bad things happen to those who spend too much time around her

After all

Look what happened

To her father...

18th of August,
An amazing development- I've been recruited by the Mage's Guild! Magister Dyraxdiin personally oversaw my exam and was so impressed that he put word in for me to join the Necromancer's Guild as well. Larewen Dragana herself wants to be my teacher, can you believe that? I grew up in the shadows of her manor and now she's actually inviting me to stay with her while she teaches me necromancy. This is a dream come true!
Out of all the amazing people I've met since I left home, none catch my eye quite like my classmate and fellow apprentice, Karasu Tsuji. She got to grow up here, a real-life Xalious princess, among rare books and great casters, learning from the best since she could walk. Ooo, she's so lucky! She's gotta be my biggest rival so far, but she's also my best friend. None give my life drive and meaning quite like her, but one day I'll surpass her and be the greatet spell blade in the entire guild- Just wait and see!

-Excerpt from "Arh'Nuk's Chosen"

Strange Girl (the apprentice)

Who is this strange girl?

I recognize her stare

Even with black hair clean

Even with nails and face painted

She's still Quintessa of Black Pond

Even with her new sword

Even with her new clothes

She's still just a wretch

She's still a hag's daughter

She's still an abomination

Who is Quintessa?

An apprentice of mages

A practitioner of dark magic

Someone who shouldn't be trusted

Someone twisted

Something unnatural

After all

Look how far she's come

In such

A short


22nd of October,
I expected the final battle to be bloody but I'm still piecing together what I witnessed. Reports from Master Kasyr collaborate with the reports on the ground; The Razurath killed themselves down to the last woman and child. On the battlefield it was no better as the flames of chaos grew in the melee. The Drows' bloodlust rivaled my own as we cut down foe after foe together, not yet realizing the trap we were walking into. With Aetherclaw's death came the trigger of magic and the most powerful sphere of annihilation I've ever seen manifested before our eyes. They were using necromancy! The horror and fear of the innocents sacrificed for this spell reverberated from the center like a nest of hornets, buzzing with agony. And then... Luffy. She was too slow to make it out in time and the sphere shredded her to pieces. I've never felt so heartbroken before... Master Kasyr is supposed to stop by House Dragana later... maybe together we can make sense of all of this...

-Excerpt from "A Hex Blade's War Journal"

Pretentious Girl (the baroness)

2nd of February,
Xicotl is a slippery bastard but he's left breadcrumbs for me everywhere. Athis, the Coalition of Chrome, the Belghaxian Reach, the Xin Akashi, and the Order of the Third Moon... How have so many civilizations come and gone without contemporary scholars learning about them? There are many secrets out there that are just waiting to be explored and I reckon that's how I'll attain true power. 
Too long have I held myself back from learning forbidden knowledge but this recent mission has opened my eyes to the truth- No knowledge should be forbidden. That's just bullocks that the old men at he Mage's College tell you when they think you have too much potential. Had we been learning about Xicotl all along we would be ready for him now but no more! If nobody else will do what it takes for the security of Lithrydel then I must take this burden upon my own shoulders. I will not stand by and watch what happened to the Razurath happen to me, not while I can still resist. Better to die with my boots on than lie down and die like a dog, and while my mind is still sharp I will use it as a weapon for the Warrior's Guild. They can count on that.

-Excerpt from "Quintessa Dragana's Notes on Xicotl"

Who is this pretentious girl?

Making claims to baronies and titles undeserving

That's Quintessa of Black Pond

Quintessa Dragana now

The Monster of the Dark Forest

The swordsman who wields curses

The dangerous creature that haunts the house

What makes her think she's fit to lead?

She's still a wretch of a baroness

She's still a neophyte of a spell-weaver

An upstart sell-sword playing at politics

Does she have what it takes?

Or will the vampire houses

Bleed her


21st of April,
At first I thought it was just paranoia but since my 18th name day it's been worse. The whispers that had all fallen silent have returned to a deafening volume. The daily itching on the back of my mind has become a glaring irritation that nothing will soothe. Even in my dreams she haunts me and I know deep down who the night hag who rides my back until morning is... My mother. 
She's been watching me all along, I just know it, and now she's come to lure me in with her call. But what can she want with me? Is she beckoning me home to fulfill my potential as an Unseelie or is this simply a siren's call? Will my mother snap her jaws around my neck the moment I poke my head through the rabbit hole? 
I don't know. Nothing makes sense anymore. Even my normal research has been slowed as the whispers distract me, pulling me from my duties. I've worked too hard for too long for some disembodied voice to ruin it now, but what if I'm passing up my destiny? I'm not sure how much longer I can resist the lure of the unknown, but I can't let everybody down. I have to finish my work here in Venturil first and then perhaps I can go off looking for 'Mummy'...
