Dossier file of Aengoth Elmlock, the self-flagellating warrior. Some stuff taken from the people on /tg/. Visit 1d4chan for more info.
File Name: Aengoth Elmlock
Morphology: Standard Human
Current Age: 20
Current Residence: Squatting in an abandoned royal tomb in Arrin’ak
Aengoth is a warrior who specializes in melee combat with various
types of swords. Currently he lives in the small kingdom of Arrin’ak
ruled by a benevolent necromancer.
is also a master with the whip and the scourge for an esoteric
reason. He engages in self-harming behavior by using a whip and a
scourge on his own back. This has resulted in him gaining a negative reputation across online. He is relentlessly trolled on FaceTome and other social media profiles about this behavior as people are unable to understand his reasons for this self-flagellation.
whip which is made of braided leather taken from a demon he slew is 6
feet in length. The scourge is made of the same material but also has
a set of demonsteel barbs woven into its 6 leather strands. He can be
seen carrying these with him at all times as well as some kind of
sword for combat.
joint investigation with the Guild of Biomancers and Technomancers
was conducted to determine if this was one of these so-called
neurological sicknesses that are speculated to exist by Biomancer
Ashamanu Assunbahanammu. After multiple interviews with Aengoth
himself and other people who know him, it was determined to not be.
most reliable person was a healer known as Melvuli Llandu who
frequently visits his dwelling place in a royal tomb which, thanks to
the king’s necromancy, has been abandoned.
on the information gathered from these interviews, he was the victim
of an attempted human sacrifice conducted by his own parents at the
age of 10. But thanks to the ritual being performed incorrectly, he
was able to escape and flee his home town. This failed ritual was
meant to earn the favor of a demon lord and involved a flagellation
that was meant put him a nearly half dead state. The demon was then
supposed to take him.
claimed that before the ritual went wrong, he was able to see a
different realm. He was able to ask the demon lord what was happening
and why. But before it could answer, the portal to its realm became
unstable causing it to close unexpectedly. He was able to escape
remembers nothing about the ritual except the fact that he needs to
be flagellated till he is almost half dead. Nor can he even remember
the name of the demon lord or provide a description. There are
currently no known methods of detecting or recovering lost memories.
It is suspected those memories are gone for good.
joined the Fighters Guild at age 16 and got his swordsmanship skills
from there. During a contracted mission he slew a low-level demon and
used it’s hide to craft his whip and scourge. He proceeded to
flagellate himself in private to see if he could summon the demon
guild tolerated this at first but after awhile the guild healer was
getting disturbed by his actions and had him kicked out. Shortly
afterwards he was doxed on FaceTome and everything about him was sent
across the outernet including pictures of his back and the whips. A
video of his self-flagellation that was secretly taken got posted to
5 different shock video sites and eventually made it onto YouVid.
life was basically ruined from there as no one in his home kingdom
wanted him around. He got a reputation as worshiping an evil
torturing deity despite that being not true. Shortly after, he made
his way to the kingdom of Arrin’ak and settled inside an abandoned
tomb. At the time he was unaware it was the royal crypts but no one
cared he was living in them.
his reputation online, no one in Arrin’ak cared about what he did
as their necromancer king would deal with him if he caused any kind
Status: As of now, he does various quests for rewards and loots
abandoned locations for things he can use and trade. He knows a basic
healing spell that was taught to him by his healer friend and will
use it while out adventuring. He can be identified by the whips he
carries and the mess of scars on his back. He is still flagellating himself to see if he can summon that demon lord. Unless he can remember the rest of the ritual though, this is not likely going to happen.
End of line.

I was onboard until we got to FaceTome, the juxtaposition of social media into what originally felt like dark fantasy was jarring. I would consider bringing this aspect up much sooner in the write up, perhaps even in the intro paragraph.
Brought it up in the second paragraph. Try it now.
Adjusted my awarded points accordingly
