[Pathfinder] Ursht - New Character

A vile demon-worshiping cult has wormed its way into the noble Houses of the Yeomanry of the Flanaess. What began as a fashionable séance-enacting occult society evolved into The Ebon Six, a coven which venerates Graz'zt and holds ties to the warlord Iuz. To cement the cult's power and prove their faith to the Dark Prince, the cabal's leader Heneras gave Graz'zt his eldest unmarried daughter. Surulla disappeared in a flash during the ritual but was found several days later walking back towards the capital, babblingly insane.


Her pregnancy was not difficult for the cabal to hide. Ursht's birth killed Surulla, and her ghost still haunts her father and Ursht. The child was kept from normal society, brought up by the cult and sequestered away. Ursht knows the rites the coven created before his birth, and has contributed a number of new rituals to their repertoire since. His presence is venerated as a blessing by the Dark Prince, and they listen to Ursht's counsel as if he knew his father's will.

Ursht is not one for direct conflict. He would not survive a straight-up fight, and knows this. At this point in his life, he makes effective use of the members of the cabal as a screen. They protect him, and he guides them in enacting his father's will upon the face of the Flanaess. Ursht uses his "otherness" to fascinate the members of the cult, and is working hard at following in his father's path by seducing the women of the cabal and blessing their families with his noble blood.

Heneras has been told to familiarize the boy with the use of the spear, and to ensure he has access to any library he desires. Graz'zt is playing the long game again; focusing this scion into something terrible. Heneras has been told that their mutual grandson's development is more important than the cabal, and to beware the consequences of not doing as the demon-lord decrees...

STRATEGY
: At this stage in his development, Ursht will only be encountered with several members of the cabal in tow. He is too important for them to be risked in random fights, and the cultists have used their considerable position and money to have three mercenaries attached as personal bodyguards. Ursht himself is less than pleased with this, but will use the resources to survive.
TACTICS
: If Ursht is caught in a fight, he will use his cantrips and Intimidate skill to disrupt and demoralize opponents and give advantage to his cadre of bodyguards. Should he become cornered or forced to fight, he will use his claws and True Strike / Touch of Fatigue to generate an opportunity to escape. Withdrawal is his favorite maneuver - he is a lover, not a fighter. He does not consider "commoners" worthy of his touch, but relishes the idea of causing pain.
