Currently, Sepa is a blacksmith. Long ago, in the mercenary days and in the times the clan arose, she was also a warrior, patching up armor when there was time between skirmishes. After the arrival of the Wolf Fangs into the fold, she raised a wolf named Ranga. However, in the war after the Skyhole incident, a particular brutal fight with the Sharen killed Ranga and crippled Sepa's right leg. She left the battle field after this to become a full time blacksmith. She's been offered the pick of the litter for many of Ranga's descendants, but only in recent years did she actually agree to take one and raise it. She now uses Valtan to quickly get around, surveying the movement of damaged armors and golems so her workshop can make repairs.
Inspiration is of course our favorite Nori'fu and her daughter, as well as Aveline Vallen of Dragon Age (who was a blacksmith-turned-guardsman). I swear Handsome Squidward was not involve until it was too late to unsee him in her face, but that is my fault for trying to accent a bit more "female" by giving her lipstick - she doesn't wear makeup normally. She is tattooed along her upper arms, shoulders, back and chest though, and rips any tall collars off to keep cool (so she's Exhibitionist Handsome Squidward). That tuft of hair connected to the chain on her apron is a bit of Ranga's fur, a keepsake. She's a gruff sort, but if she finds something she likes about you, then you got a good friend for life.
Sulu is a member of the house that no longer has females, mentioned in the Beldrobbaen podcast. He has two jobs in the clan - one is his hobby of sorts too, that is recopying old manuscripts into newer books, preserving the past. The other is his vocation and skill - he teaches youth of the clan about light and shadow manipulation, giving them pre-Orthorbbae starts and enhancing their skills during breaks. He is fairly curt, and I would liken him to a bit more relaxed version of Severus Snape, who helped inspire his costume (a mix of Drowtales usual, the wraps seen in this page
, and slight nods to Snape and something in the Regency fashion era with the collar and neckcloth). His face had some referencing of Trent Reznor, but he looks nothing like Trent in the end!
As on DA, I teased maybe he had a wild streak in his youth and is Khal'harror's dad. Not likely, but amusing to see him do some Snape-like whaps upside the head to Khal, but with a small knowing smile on his face while he did it.
