Bann Vaughan Urien
Member No.: 263
Joined: 25-January 12
Full Name: Vaughan Urien (or Kendell - he’s called both in the game which I’m assuming is just something which slipped through the editors. I picked one. If you want me to use the other one, I will.)
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual / Sadist
Occupation: Current Arl of Denerim after his release from Howe’s Dungeon and the death of Howe
Religion: Andrastian, of course
Specialization: None, unless you count being without personality and being sadistic scum a specialization
Gear: Noble clothing, sword, heavy chainmail which spends most of its time on an armour stand in his estate.
Appearance: Short cropped, brown hair, a permanent sneer, brown eyes and an air of arrogant cruelty.
Personality: Vaughan is the kind of person who thinks he can buy anyone and everyone. He’s a sadist, a bully, and enjoys humiliating / hurting people when they are weaker than himself. He’s arrogant, self centered, hedonistic, and a sociopath. He’s also nobility and he knows it. He’s got a decent mind for politics, but he’s the kind of person who strangles kittens for amusement and buries puppies alive because it’s funny.
Vaughan had a rough year during the Blight. He’s the son of Arl Urien and his father had always turned a blind eye toward his son’s more “eccentric behavior.” He began when he was just a boy, and he was quick to make friends with other noble children who shared his enthusiasm for torturing animals. They pushed other children around, bullied, beat them up, and enjoyed spreading terror where they went.
When Vaughan and his sycophants started coming into their teens, their perversity began to really come to life. (Let’s just use our imaginations here, because there’s no need to go into details. Most people have played the City Elf Origin.) He attracted people into the guards who had similar tastes and there was some problems in the Alienage right before the Blight. Some bitch bottled him around that time when he and his boys were grabbing a few elven whores at a mockery of a wedding. They rounded up some of them later to have their fun anyway, but things didn’t go as well as planned. They escaped, and before he could get his revenge over it, his father, Arl Urien, was killed at Ostagar.
Rendon Howe put him in prison as “another victim of the elven uprising” and took his place as the Arl of Denerim. On his release by the unwitting Hero of Ferelden who had no idea what sort of Monster he was, Vaughan got out of his cell on an oath to support Alistair at the Landsmeet. He lived up to his promise. Once things settled after the Blight, his Arling was returned to him as the rightful owner.
[Knight Capt Storyteller’s note. This guy is a villain and he’s supposed to be. We need an antagonist. He’s sleezy and can be alive with your permission. He’ll be staying in Ferelden.]
