Faculty/Staff Directory

Post by Peace Emberlain on Sat Oct 10, 2015 6:54 pm

After talking to Breanna, we figured it might be cool to make a topic for various open spots for teachers and stuff. So I'm gonna do that, and post some NPCs here. This is also an ok place for brainstorming or requests on the topic of teachers and classes.

Some people have already made teachers, including PCs. Y'all do whatever you feel is most convenient: post them here, link the existing topics, leave them be, whatever.

Enjoy!

Reserving the second post here in case we ever have enough that we need an actual pretty directory with links and stuff.

Player Name: NPC (Open)

Name: Stella Aether
Age: 51
Grade and/or Occupation: Math Teacher (Academy)
Species: Human (Fae-touched)
Race/Ethnicity: Black/African-American
Gender: Female
Sexual Orientation: Straight? Likes men probably, she's married to one. Are you going to ask your old math teacher what she likes in the sack, because I'm not.

Magical Powers/Abilities: Fae-touched. Mrs. Aether has some powers developed from spending so much time in Lakeshore, and specifically around her husband and children. She can whistle up a light breeze, warm the air around her by a degree or two, and in a very strong wind, she might start floating.

Magical Weaknesses: Nothing in particular. She has a small fondness for ribbons and chimes, like many sylphs, but that could just be an aesthetic thing.

Personality: A nice, quiet introvert with an absolutely brilliant mind. Sometimes prone to moodiness and a tendency to overwork, especially during periods of stress. Strict but rarely mean about it, with a strong sense of community obligation.

Backstory: Mrs. Aether had a somewhat turbulent childhood, given her parents were strongly involved in the Civil Rights Movement. When she was about twenty, she fell in love and had a whirlwind relationship until one day, he revealed he was fae: a sylph named Aethrys. She wasn't happy at first, but it wasn't long before she forgave and accepted him, and on that day he proposed to her. A few years later upon the birth of their first child, desiring a place they could settle down safely (and where she could really focus on her love of theoretical math), they moved to Lakeshore. Since then she's spent her years developing the community and teaching some of the younger Fae-blooded types running around- including her own three children, now grown- and has been a strong supporter of Dunehelden since it started.

Current Classes on Offer: Generally teaches Pre-Algebra as well as the most advanced Academy classes. During summers she teaches adult education classes, as well as classes on education, which she tries to encourage the more talented and sociable students to join. Mrs. Aether has been teaching since Dunehelden started.

Appearance: Mrs. Aether is a youthful-looking old lady, though a bit on the frail side. She has close-cropped, tightly-curled graying hair, dark skin, and dark brown eyes with little flecks of sky blue in them. She tends to dress conservatively, preferring long patterned dresses and smart jackets.

Player Name: NPC (Open)

Name: Heinrich Obenauer
Age: 29
Grade and/or Occupation: History/Magic Teacher (Academy)
Species: Human
Race/Ethnicity: German
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation: Gay

Magical Powers/Abilities: Mage. Dr. Obenauer doesn't have much in the way of innate magic, though he's learned a lot of practical things. He's good at household magic, translation spells, and some of the trickier positive necromantic stuff (like being able to keep yourself awake and alert for a few days straight). His passions, though, are enchantment and alchemy.

Magical Weaknesses: He's mostly a normal human being. Enchantment and alchemy, as you might expect, also take a good amount of time, ingredients, and energy.

Personality: He's bright but dorky, socially awkward and easily obsessed. He can be highly disciplined when pursuing a goal. He's known for being pretty hardcore about exams and pushing the best students in his classes to do better, but if you don't catch his special attention, he's a pretty easy grader for papers if you're clearly trying and paying attention in class.

Backstory: Dr. Obenauer is from a small city in Germany. In school, he befriended a child being bullied and over time, realized there was something very strange about the other boy's family. Eventually, he learned the boy and his family were fae-blooded. He's spent his whole life being fascinated by the secret world of the fae and their history, as well as the secrets of human magic, and wants to spend his life as a scholar.

Current Classes on Offer: Teaches the main Academy history courses: World History, History of Arcadia, and History of Magic. He's also one of a few people that teaches Intro to Magic, which like many classes is Academy/University. He's been teaching at Dunehelden for about four years, since he finished his own degree.

Appearance: A tall, weedy-looking man with wavy light brown/dark blond hair, pale skin, brown eyes and glasses. He dresses casually unless he has reason not to, and talks with his hands a lot.

Player Name: NPC (Open)

Name: Caliban
Age: A couple hundred or so
Grade and/or Occupation: Glamour and Shapeshifting Professor (Academy/University)
Species: Fae (Pooka)
Race/Ethnicity: Talking Lion, usually
Gender: Whatevs (Ey/Em or They/Them preferred)
Sexual Orientation: Demiromantic Asexual

Magical Powers/Abilities: Pooka. Caliban can shapeshift into pretty much any animal or human form he's seen before, including different variations of humans. Ey's also gotten down some inanimate forms, and can turn himself into a roaring fire, a rose, or a table. With glamours, ey's pretty solid and can create detailed, mostly-realistic audiovisual illusions.

Magical Weaknesses: Cold iron, moderate compulsion to help those who respect em. Does not appreciate being thanked. (Among students, usually responds with something like "don't thank me, damnit, thank yourself for getting it right!") If ey tries to mimic a specific person's look or take a form ey hasn't before, ey needs to put some study into it or use some kind of magical catalyst. Large or detailed glamours require concentration.

Personality: Caliban is loud, confident, strong, and brash, befitting eir usual form of King of the Jungle. Ey is also a very friendly sort when you get to know em, erudite and well-spoken, and has a strong protective instinct towards Changelings specifically. While solidly fae in instinct, Caliban is also perfectly capable of acting as human as ey wishes to look, though ey's a bit midcentury old-fashioned about manners.

His trickster tendencies tend to tend to come out during exams, where riddles and elaborate challenges are the usual fare. He tends to grade students based on clever thinking and/or effort presented over results per se.

Backstory: Caliban is fairly open about having spent a couple of "lifetimes" living among humans, but not about why or why ey stopped. There are stories, of course (some possibly started by em): stories of love requited or unrequited, of exile from an Unseelie court that turned into a life-changing experience, or of a prank gone wrong and a long fallout. Many suspect the story is far more prosaic than that, but whatever it is, Caliban seems to be both deeply reticent and amused by the speculation. Ey has been teaching at Dunehelden for about a decade.

Current Classes on Offer: Caliban teaches four levels each of glamour and shapeshifting classes, though often students of different levels are taught togethr during part of the week. All classes are based on the students' level regardless of their grade. Over the summers, he also teaches a practical effects art/theatre class jointly with another teacher.

Appearance: Usually a large adult lion with an impressive mane, who may or may not be wearing clothes. Ey can switch effortlessly between standard lion and anthropomorphic form and does whenever is convenient, sometimes multiple times a minute. (Most other forms require at least a little concentration.) When ey feels like looking human but has no other particular intention, ey has two main forms: one of a tall, handsome Ghanaian man, and another of a scrappy, strawberry blond Welshman with a full beard.

Character Model: Physically, imagine a mix between Lion and Karl Marx.
