Liadan

Player Name

Ragazzo

Name

Liadan

Concept

Deferential Dullahan

Power

A Dullahan Knows No Boundaries: Barring Liadan from going somewhere it wants is very difficult indeed. For an Action Point, Liadan can embrace his ethereal nature, and pass through solid objects, excepting water, gold and iron, or have then pass through him, for a brief time. (One Action) Is capable of sharing this effect with Cailleach, at the same cost. (I.E. they both become ethereal at the cost of two Action Points)

Aspects

Flickering Fire: Liadan is…indistinct to say the least. His head is composed of an ethereal mist, that is seemingly generated from the small font of ghastly flame emanating from the exposed end of spinal column at the top of his stump. There is also, of course, the fact that a phosphorescent, crackling head attracts attention.
Stop-crunch-talking!: Liadan has no patience for the verbose, or long-winded. For Liadan, extended speaking is difficult, and tiresome. A terrible communicator, with a short temper for being misunderstood. Much prefers when Cailleach does the talking. He loathes those who are overly personable as well.
Dullahan's Dray Horse: Liadan is much more capable, and fearsome, when seated on his ethereal mount. However, when he does take a seat on his steed, a single-minded sinister passion storms Liadan's mind, allowing his barely held in check true nature as a Dullahan, to run rampant. Rearing hooves, and cackling laughter, chases under dark bridges at midnight, whilst his severed head bearing a gruesome grin, borne aloft like a lantern, emits a ghastly glow, and thunders the name of some poor soul. Liadan exults in that moment when his whip lashes out into the shadows, unerringly ripping a ragged swath into the throat of the wicked and damned.

Personal History

Liadan is something of a popular figure with those who study ethereal beings, and especially those that hunt them. At only 217 years of age, this Dullahan is by no means as notorious as the Headless Horseman, or other such famous spirits, but if you asked around for stories if those of his kind, soon enough, Liadan's name would come up. Usually in a hushed whisper, and not before the teller made sure they had some gold on them. Considered by those who know him to be a fair deal more scrupulous, than the other types of psychopomps who roam the earth, Liadan is regardless good at what he does. And what Liadan does, is hunt down problematic individuals, and end them. And, to liadan, a problem is whatever Cailleach says one is. He follows her will unconditionally.

Miscellaneous

The shape and form of a tall man, say 6'4". Liadan is permanently garbed in a oppressively black cloak. A ghostly white veil wraps around his right bicep, tied snugly, marking him as servant and protector of Cailleach
