Personal Feature: My hammer Durandal was transformed from a typical Smith’s Hammer in a moment of Divine blessing. My God’s follower’s are usually pacifists but this is both a) clearly God’s will and b) clearly designed to hurt people rather badly. I’m still working out how I feel about this, and have sworn a solemn oath never to outright kill save for “anti-life” like Demons, Devils and Undead…and to try and rein in some of the more casual murder of my compatriots. For now Durandal is my Holy Symbol. It has led me towards a path of Divine Artifice – beginning with the improvement of the Silver Shackles used by the Abyssal Guard to bind demonkin. It made Beausoleil. It made Veillantif. It can absorb powers of weapons: I have 1 ‘safe’ month to get 20 points (for Tier 3), 15 (Tier 2) or 10 (Tier 1). After that, 20% chance cumulative per week enchantment degrades. It has currently absorbed:

  1. Vampire Greatsword: +3d6 Necrotic/Heal for 1/2 Necrotic Dealt on 1 attack/Expedition.

Bio:

Jean-Pierre du Veyrir de la Grand Contumace Saint-Emilion is from the lowest dregs of Dwarven society – as is evidenced by his humiliating lack of a full name. (It only identifies his canton and ONE RELATIVE. It’s the Dwarven equivalent of “Hob” for a manservant.)

Jean-Pierre is a servant of the Ever-Flowering Tree, a member of a pacifist sect of healers and seekers after truth that worship said vaguely defined Divine Concept through a tightly cloistered existence in the highlands outside of the Dwarven nation of Pardubien-Grand-Amanoir. He was raised as a smith and lay brother, making plows and belt buckles for the glory of the Tree; one day he would be ordained and make vestments and complex machine parts. For the glory, as above. In between, he would eat leafy greens, sleep 4 hours a day, and sweep a great quantity of hallway flagstone.

For most of his life this suited Jean-Pierre right down to the ground. His faith was pure and his manners perfect.

And perhaps that was why he was Chosen.

One morning Jean-Pierre woke up feeling sore and exhausted and surrounded by his fellow Acolytes – all pressed firmly against the walls of their dormitory to get away from the stinking, hissing automatic printing press that he had apparently spent all night building in one ecstatic (and very noisy) burst of divine inspiration. Roses had bloomed in his beard, and his sightless eyes had shone like a Solar’s, and he had sung the great hymns of the Ever-Flowering Tree in perfect 5-part harmony (yea, even unto the really tricky descant in “Have You Ever Tried Being Religious? It Really Does Help”.)

Looking at the press more closely, it was set to spew out copy at a moment’s notice. Jean-Pierre saw that the typesetting was already complete, and pulled a lever – ten minutes later, just as the Abbot was finally working up the nerve to come into the room and start shouting, Jean-Pierre was the proud owner of 1000 perfect reproductions of his own original treatise, “Hey, You – I Think You Should Believe In My Organized Religion, And Here’s Why.”)

(It bears mentioning that the Ever-Flowering Tree, while not over-big on Commandments, was known to take a Very Dim View of figurative language or metaphor. The Tree’s holy writings and psalms were, therefore, rather blunt and to the point in title and content.)

The Abbot finally slipped open the door and bustled in ready to lay down some prime discipline, only to find that one of the two Smith’s Hammers to which Jean-Pierre was entitled by virtue of his position had swelled, through a clear miracle, into a great black warhammer engraved with snarling faces of war dogs and dwarven heroes of old – and, beneath them all, the sigul of the Tree.

This was a weapon of war made by a pacifist(?) God. This was a challenge of faith as received and faith as divinely inspired. There was only one solution for a true Dwarf of belief.

They pooled their money on a set of armour and kicked Jean-Pierre out – or, in their words, “Released this new Prophet from his Vows so that he might Spread the Word to the Unenlightened By Visiting Them With Pamphlets and Following Up With Well-Thought-Out Arguments.” It was a bold move, and – very contented with their wild vision in this instance – the Brothers decided they could take a well-earned break from any more such innovations for at least 200-300 years.

Meanwhile Jean-Pierre, clad all in jet black and very imposing gear (the Brothers had a…bit of a negative association with martial implements and assumed that ‘Evil Henchman’ must be a la mode for those forced to utilize them) had a mission that filled him with joy.

By the simple mathematical operation of finding the location with the lowest percentage of Ever-Flowering Tree worshippers, Jean-Pierre settled on Silanya – where there were literally none – and set out to bring Truth, Freedom, and Tree-Worshipping to the Savage Heathen. He has worked out a bargain with his God – if he doesn’t KILL anyone, but only INCAPACITATES THEM, he is only IMMOBILIZING them so that they might become a captive audience to his cunning theological propositions and inducements to belief. (For Yea, Verily, Is Not It Meet That One To Be Brought To Religious Conviction Be Restrained So That They Are Unable To Leave And Get Distracted By Mundane Chores, as wrote Cardinal Etienne Camille Bourmand de la Seconde-Chaumiere-Rambouillet?)

Armed with this tenuously balanced belief system and a great big hammer, look out Silanya – here comes Jean-Pierre!

UPDATE:
Since his first burst of enthusiasm onto the Silanyan scene, Jean-Pierre – or, now, ‘Jeepers’ as the barbarian ‘wit’ of Bertholdt dubbed him sufficiently publicly for it to stick like glue – has failed himself.

He has taken life.

He has, in trying to deliver a fallen Paladin to her Rest Eterne, taken a friend’s life. That this was not clear to him at the time avails him not.

Since then his flawless body has been wracked with chain-scarring and his hands have wrung against each other, helpless, as friends and mentors died around him.

He has rededicated himself to his mission – he will not try to save every life around him, but by the Tree and the Loam and the Blossoming Blaze he will do no physical harm to any other being. He will endeavour as much as is possible to dissuade others from doing any. He will speak for higher principles than expediency and casual bloodlust and greed.

But where there is no life – where there is anti-life, malice incarnate, black bile from the depths – he will strike and strike true. Demons and Devils? No tolerance. No bargaining. Jean-Pierre has seen where that leads. Every one that he smites and binds is another that cannot lead a good woman to ruin or a bad man to becoming worse.

The Silanyan Expeditionary Forge rings, now, to the sounds of Jean-Pierre du Vayrir de la Grand Contumace St-Emilion working to improve a set of silver manacles that can catch the hell-born in thrall.

When they are sufficient to the task he will begin to mass-produce them.

He no longer sees the Tree through the lens of Life, the Fruitful One, the All-Flowering; he sees it as Forge of Creation, Bringer Forth of Multitudes, Forge of the Righteous.

His Calling has…changed accordingly.

The Tree is a Tree of Mercy – but the only mercy possible to the Dark is to relieve it of the suffering of its purely malevolent existence. Jean-Pierre is a pacifist. He has come to understand that this does not preclude him destroying in their multitudes those who are, at heart, merely ambulatory manifestations of the insane and unlovely horror that is war.

A penitent’s stint among the Abyssal Guard will begin his rededication to the Demon Slayer’s way. He will heal their bodies and meditate upon his many flaws; they will teach him how they hunt and trap those fiends far stronger than they.

As of Expedition 70, JP has decided to rededicate his life to pacifism and crafting armor to protect his friends and colleagues.
