Winter Power (Fleeting)
Mark one of this condition’s five boxes to use the well of power granted to you by your mantle, as described in your stunts. Recover fully at the end of any scene in which Arcane Power is unused. This condition may also be utilised to create an approach with a bonus equal to the number of unmarked boxes minus one (minimum of +0), usable on any action using the approach. The GM, however, will exacerbate your self-described actions according to the character of the mantle – cold, predatory, and domineering.
If the impact of allowing the mantle to control your action is sufficiently complicating, the GM may also treat it as a compel and award you a fate point.
“What do I do with this curse? How do I break it, or live with it?”
Mythos, Adapation. Kutu was once one of the Sylvar, or Forest Elves, but was cursed to wear the skin of his divine victim. Now he walks as a wolf amongst men, his will barely holding his primal instincts in check.
Strengths. Acute senses; Feral strength; Nimble feet
Weakness. Primal instincts
“Everyone starts out as strangers, full of story. Not many will remain to be family.”
Logos, Personality. When it comes to learning new things, Kutu has an innate talent. This has made him hungry for knowledge, but past experiences with others have made him wary of those wanting to take advantage of his skills for their own benefit.
Strengths. Silver tongue; Historical knowledge; Good memory
Weakness. Trust issues
“By the gods, what was that thing that granted us our powers?”

Strengths. Summon bonded weapons; Manipulate water and ice; Innate arcane understanding
Weakness. Borrowed power
“Life isn’t finding shelter in the storm. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”
Logos, Mission. Kutu wishes to become the greatest hunter of them all, and constantly strives towards this goal. Unfortunately, this over competitiveness sometimes means he can loose sight of what is really important.
Strengths. Tracking; Great marksmanship; Stalking prey
Weakness. Extremely competetive
(Short description of the character’s appearance.)
(A description of the character’s personality.)
(A few paragraphs on the character’s history leading up to joining the Silver Ravens Guild. Make sure to include the connections that we created during character creation.)
Kutu and Rayk were childhood friends. Kutu an outspoken and athletic Pembu elf, and Rayk was the son of a catfolk skyship merchant who often stopped by the village to trade. The two played recklessly, played pranks on other people, and explored Pembu together.
Kutu always wanted to be a great hunter. To prove his worth, he ventured into the forbidden lands and killed one of the wolves that belonged to the Goddess of the Hunt, Mengjari. The Goddess appeared and cursed him for his wrongdoing. No longer an elf, Kutu now lives as a wolfkin, a mirror of his own victim.
Kutu’s village banished him for breaking the ancient law. Having nowhere else to go, Rayk brought Kutu to his father’s airship. Outside of the airship, the two took on dangerous jobs. Their friendship grew stronger as bounty hunters. They metand Darrak on their travels.
None the wiser in their youths, Kutu and Rayk ventured into treacherous wildlands. They broke an archaic spell, and an unspeakable entity nearly took Kutu’s life. To save his friend, Rayk made a pact with it. They were both granted magical powers by the entity, but at a cost of memory: Rayk’s memory of Kutu from when they first met. Rayk does not remember his childhood. Kutu remembers everything about his childhood friend, wishing he could find his memory one day.
To Kutu, the world is a desolate and cruel place, and he thought it too depressing to not have a laugh about.shares a similar insight, and is always able to make him laugh in the worst of days.
Kutu’s wolfkin appearance drew harmless attention on the streets, but Kalmer Redbrand saw him and swore to cleanse the unclean. He was sent a forged note to meet Darrak in an alley. Darrak was there with a similar forged note. Order of the Crimson Flame ambushed the two and threw them in an underground cell to be executed the next morning, claiming them unclean with godly curses.
In the cell, Kutu and Darrak made a bet to see who can escape first. Darrak attempted to convince the cell watchman for the key, while Kutu attempted to copy the key from ice magic. However, the Crimson Flame suspected sorcery and had already created an anti-magic zone. Unbroken, Darrak managed to distract the watchman enough for Kutu to steal his dagger and forced him to give up the cell key. The two escaped overnight.
Since then, they never agreed who won the bet to escape first. The two are still hunted by the Crimson Flame, so they stayed clear from unfriendly territories.
