Hoodwink minimap icon.png Hoodwink
Hoodwink's earliest years were spent in the idyllic expanse of green that once filled the edges of Krimwohl. But as that kingdom grew, and the needs of both her citizens and her armies became ravenous, rival ore and timber barons scratched and clawed to outpace each other in devouring the natural beauty of the border forests, gorging themselves to meet the demands of the changing land.

To those living in the ancient timberlands, the choice came down to following the line of refugees into the pacified zones, falling to Krimwohl's black powder and steel while defending their homes, or fleeing further north to tempt fate in the haunted glens and groves of the misty Wood Tomo'kan.

So it was in those treacherous northern mistwoods that Hoodwink came of age, dodging the horrific predators of the Tomo'kan, ingratiating herself with some of the local banditry whilst antagonizing others, and finding absolutely every which way to be underfoot whenever some interesting mischief arose--often allegedly the cause of it.

But when the faintest whiff of Krimwohl's fires eventually drifted into her adopted home, Hoodwink's thoughts turned to any family and friends who might have survived the invasion--now made to eke out lives in the razed lands whose wounds scarred her very soul--and she couldn't help but approach the edges of civilization to get a glimpse of the devils that had destroyed her old life.

There, she saw that the monsters from her childhood weren't monsters at all. They were just...people. Soldiers, laborers, merchants...and refugees. And the soldiers, even with their black powder and steel, were nothing compared to the dangers of the Tomo'kan--real dangers with tentacles and teeth--dangers she danced around like a twirling maple seed.

Knowing she can always find safe passage in the tangles of the Tomo'kan, where most warm-blooded folk wisely fear to tread, Hoodwink now strikes out against those who dare try to further pacify the wilds, happily taking what she likes from their belongings, destroying what she has no use for, and helping guide any kindred survivors back to a life in the green once again.

  3. Hoodwink response: ▶️ r What'd you bring me, Auntie A? Something good?
  4. Hoodwink response: ▶️ r You can't tell me what to do! I tell me what to do!
  5. Hoodwink response: ▶️ r I nicked a statue that looked kinda like you once. Yeah, threw it by the side of the road. Wonder if somebody grabbed it.
  6. Hoodwink response: ▶️ r They used to tell stories about this one in the Tomo'kan. Quite the little troublemaker. This'll gain me even more respect.

  14. Hoodwink response: ▶️ r If I say what I feel, my tongue might turn black and fall off.
  15. Hoodwink response: ▶️ r This one feels better than most.
  16. Hoodwink response: ▶️ r Okay first I'm gonna murder all of them, Chen, and then I'm definitely gonna get back around to you.
  17. Hoodwink response: ▶️ r Wait there's one of you here too?!
  18. Hoodwink response: ▶️ r Bro she is not going to be happy that I killed you. Oh well, she already had it out for me anyway.
