Character Name: Kasluul Solozel
Item name: (if you are applying for multiple items, it should be made into a list with the description, name and appearance together): Iron Mask, Maraziite Throw Over
Item function(s): The mask does nothing (as it'd have to be a helmet accessory to have any armor, I imagine), and the throw-over has two pockets. It would be neat if it can be used as an accessory like other ponchos.
Iron Mask- It's a painted mask of white cast iron, decorated with two massive Hegeranzi horns. This is a slightly older design, worn by the members of the Maraziite Order; used to strike fear into the hearts of heretics.
Maraziite Throw Over- It's a grey poncho, exclusively donned by the members of the Maraziite Order. This one has a Izweski Hegemony flag boldly sewn onto the shoulder.
Item Appearance: I will probably play around with having a frill or not. Slightly out of date images.
Why is your character bringing this item to work?
Kasluul is an Iron Mask, a member of the Maraziite Order. The mask and throw-over embody the aspect of Sk'akh that they took - the Warrior. To them, it is everything, and the Warrior perfectly represents their oaths and lifestyle. The garb is not only to show that the wearer is something of an inquisitor, it is to communicate their ambitions, deeds, and what they are capable of to any that would seek their aid, or dare to cross them.
How did your character obtain this item (1 paragraph or more please):
Kasluul was hatched only months before human first contact, and grew up in a clan of warriors; particularly War Riders. Being too young for a long time to ride a Hegeranzi into battle himself, nonetheless Kasluul was still trusted to assist the older males with the taming of the clan's beasts, as well as going out into the wilderness of Tzonia to hunt. Working with animals, and the occasional hunting of them, was not just a sport to the Solozel clan, it was also a religious experience in Sk'akh. Food must be brought onto the table, dangerous beasts must be repelled for a village to grow, and the Overlord's enemies must be stricken out. During the Contact War, this last part would become ultimately important. He grew to hate the Traditionalists, growing to know them only as demons. As they broke his clan and people's morale, he found himself taking on more and more adult duties; eventually finding himself aiding in religious ways as well. By the end of the war, Kasluul was a man now. Not only a warrior strong as the beasts he's tamed, but a priest one with the Great Spirit's teachings.
What value does this item have to your character, and what story does it tell? (2 paragraphs here please): Though of course, I didn't put their *entire* background and story above, their membership of the Maraziite Order, and their faith in the wider Sk'akh community, is everything to them. Coming from Moghes' darkest hour, it required both faith and blade to keep the people safe. Kasluul sees himself as forever bound to fight and slay anyone that would go against the order of Sk'akh; Th'akh blood cultists that would seek to destroy the Unathi way of life, primarily. If a conflict would arise that cannot be contained by words alone, it is an Iron Mask's task to decide the outcome.
How will you use this to better interact with crew and/or stimulate RP?
Being a Maraziite is a full time job, and Kasluul has not hung up his gear just because he has taken a job with NanoTrasen. Though he does not have the law of the Hegemony on his side, nor the ability to unleash the vengeance of the Great Spirit, he still very much has the powerful gaze and dreadful countenance of an Iron Mask, and will use this to all the effects it carries.
