Brissard

by Marco Dalmonte English translation by Gary Davies

(BA PIAN-SHU)
Patron of Domination and Slavery

Level, Alignment, Sphere: 10th (Temporal), NE, Entropy
Symbol: a chain prepared to form a horizontal “eight”
Portfolio: domination, slavery, oppression, circumvention
Worshipped in: Alphatia, Esterhold, Ochalea
Appearance: a robust human of pallid complexion, with violet eyes and jet-black hair with blue highlights (the classic pure Alphatian), an expression of eternal cleverness and a deep and mellifluous voice, dressed in a short tunic and a pair of black trousers, with a whip at the belt.
History: in life a cleric of Talitha given of incredible guile and charisma, applied the teachings of his Immortal until achieving Immortality in the Sphere of Entropy about 630 BC, ensuring that the cult of Talitha became a strong presence in the Alphatian Empire taking advantage of the confused period of the civil war of unification. His cult was then enforced as one of the cornerstones in the formation of the new Alphatia, promoting slavery and the class division that still characterises the Alphatian society. Brissard gets particular sympathy among the more arrogant and violent nobles of Esterhold and among the more able cheats and manipulator.
Personality: Brissard acts as one of the more crafty and enterprising Entropic messengers and negotiators, capable of bending to his logic and to his will any individual thanks to his strength of will and to his distinct persuasive capacity. He is the patron of slavery and of mental and physical enslavement, and any means is valid in order to dominate others, whether brute force, deceit, perverse logic or blackmail. For this he is a fierce adversary of Saturnius, patron of liberty, and tends to collaborate with several Entropics for his own advantage, in particular with Talitha.
