Ascorbite Scraver, played by Dawson Kriska



Q’t-t’k (Ascorbite Scraver)

Future Histories: Imperial Space.


Tech Level: Fourth Stellar Age.

Social Status: Well-to-Do, Commoner/Not of a Noble Line

These folk are the upper end of the middle class. They typically own larger homes, have a household servant (a cook and/or maid), have conspicuous private transportation, and travel abroad (including interplanetary or interstellar travel). They often own more than one well-appointed home in more than one city. Their children are privately educated and attend prominent universities. Luxuries include elegant furnishings, artwork, libraries, parties, fine clothing, and some exotic foods. This class includes younger offspring of Nobility, highly skilled craftsmen and technicians, high-ranking military officers, successful merchants, ship owners, high-ranking clergy of prominent religions, high-level office and government workers.

Roleplay: Outward appearances are often the be-all and end-all of this Social Status and these folk may try to act like they are Wealthy. A strong tendency hereto look on lower Social Statuses as something bordering on “unclean” and to attempt to associate only with those of equal or higher status. Of all Social Statuses, Well-to-Do folk are probably the least tolerant of their children becoming adventurers (“What will the neighbors think?”).

Other Songs

Q’k-t’k’s brother (sibling 4), one time, said that after his horrible wound that separated him from the hive mind, he could hear other Songs.  Some Songs were wonderful and peaceful, whiles were dark and sinister.  He was convinced that there was one Song that wanted to dominate them all.  One Song that would absorb all others into one hive mind.  Q’k-t’k remembers a horrible panting he rendered on some caves walls that depicted this horrible creature devouring all of Severus.
