    Summary

    “... Well, I am hardly the entirety of the Academy,” Caleb finally seems to settle on, and gives Fjord a self-deprecating smile before continuing quickly, “but that is… not a terrible thing, all things considered. My point—” He straightens, and with only a brief hesitation, turns and grabs the left book from under his chest holster, laying it flat on his lap and placing both of his long, pale hands on it. Fjord knows he probably looks way too interested as he peers down at the leather-bound tome, tracing the various scratches and engravings where he can see them, but Caleb continues as if he isn’t being painfully obvious. “My point, being… if you were still interested in learning a little magic, mein Freund, I would be… amenable to showing you a few things.”

    ---

    Caleb offered to teach him some magic, a long time ago.

    Summary

    Fjord sees Caduceus in the middle of meditation and ritual to the Wildmother, and he joins in.

    Summary

    Summary

    There’s an old story about the god of the forest and the god of the sea, they say.

    The god of the forest came about it proper— Melora, the breath of Exandria, she had a son, and she named him Caduceus. A god of Exandria’s forest can never really own it, because Melora is the forest— every tree a finger, a strand of hair. The wind her breath— it gets a little muddied when you think too hard about the orientation of it all in terms of divine anatomy, the breeze, as the mother of the world breathing on herself, but that’s never the point of myths, not really.

    The snake beneath the world had a son, too, they say. Stole him from the surface and dragged him below, so young the only cord left to sever him from the world was the name he’d been given. Fjord. A carving of the world by ice.

    The funny thing is that he is not the god of the sea, the snake. The god of anything becomes so because the Mother gives part of herself to someone, and Melora had not given him the sea.

    The snake, he gave his son a job to do when he returned him to the world.

    He was to steal the sea.

    Summary

    “Are you doing all right?” Caduceus asks him, the morning after, looking over the lichen covered scar that still lingers on his chest. 

    “I’m fine,” Fjord says. “A little on edge, but otherwise - you know, I’m fine.”

    Caduceus doesn’t say anything, just nods, and Fjord wasn’t even trying to lie to him.

    Summary

    Fjord is a multi-faceted character. This is an attempt to explore all of those faces. From being an acolyte of Uk'otoa, to the charismatic face of the Mighty Nein. As a champion of the Wildmother, and a little half-orc who never knew what it was like to be wanted.

    1) Uk'otoa makes a move. Fjord readies for battle (but he's not alone).
    2) Fjord may be good, but there's darkness in his heart. Other people can feel it.

    Summary

    The Wildmother guides quietly. A dream, a few words. Those are all it really takes. Granted, her method of guidance is certainly more hands-on than others of her kind. She knows some deities that simply recluse themselves and largely ignore their worshipers. But as she peers over Caduceus, she thinks that one of his companions has far more divine guidance that is vocal and louder than hers. Newborn gods were always like that. This one in particular has a penchant for mischief and trickery. Still, she settles herself and offers small tidbits to guide Caduceus along the right path.

    Summary

    He could feel the voice coming before it was there. Like a shiver was just about to run up his spine. With it, the water changed, grew colder, heavier. It weighed in his lungs as he sank steadily into the darkness. He felt that presence behind him again, the feeling of something terrible and powerful pressing its lips to his neck.

    “WATCHING.” The voice growled in his head. It was never in the water, never around him, always directly in his mind. Like it was in him. A part of him.

    ___

    Fjord’s nightmares have been getting more and more frequent. When the group travels to Nicodranas for a vacation and to help out the Ruby of the Sea, they only get worse.

    Summary

    The Wildmother has a couple questions about her new paladin and his decidedly shaky understanding of spell components. Uk’otoa has... an answer.

    Maybe not a good answer.

    Summary

    The Wildmother had distilled something in Fjord when she chose him as her champion that he never had before, and that was a new love and appreciation for the natural world.

    And in particular- flowers.

    Summary

    The Wildmother cannot help but smile as she listens to her Clay's prayer.

    “It doesn’t seem to be a very good relationship,” Caduceus says, shaking his head. “This Uk’otoa person seems like a tough customer. I’m not sure what he is, and I know…I know you all have different relationships with your followers. But this can’t be right, can it? Everything about these temples seems unnatural. Wrong.”

    Caduceus prays for Fjord's sake. The Wildmother listens, and makes Fjord an offer. She cannot save him, but if he chooses, perhaps something can be done for him.
