Menet Serbana – Level 5

Artists featured: yeez_art on instagram, animositi on instagram

Menet Serbanea

Menet is a half-Garundi, half-Varisian woman who has spent half of her life in Osirion, and half traveling with a Varisian caravan. As a working class child in Osirion, she learned of Khepri, who she worshipped devotedly from the moment she was given a choice. As a Paladin of Khepri, she fights for the working folk, those oppressed by the nobility and without the means to fight for themselves.

 

Menet has felt an undeniable wanderlust in her heart from a very young age. She adapts quickly to new terrains, and though she grew up under the harsh sun of Osirion, she’s just as comfortable in the colder climes of Irrisen.

Alignment Statement:

“At the end of the day, I fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. If that makes me an outlaw, so be it. I’ve been called worse.” – Angela Parkhurst, Forget Me Not

 

“God made this money – the fresh air, too – for his children’s use. He never made the difference between poor and rich.” – Rebecca Harding Davis, Life in the Iron Mills and Other Stories

Values:

Freedom

None who may be redeemed should be imprisoned, and none should be restricted by circumstance. Menet believes that only the most heinous criminals deserve to be in a cage, and even they may be redeemed under different circumstances.

Compassion

Menet believes that all who live deserve that life, and deserve the basic necessities of life. Every person should be provided shelter, food, and healing, and she will do her best to help those who go without.

Adventure

Born of the migratory Garundi and caravaneering Varisians, Menet’s proclivity for travel and adventure is in her blood. She feels most at home on the road, and especially in locales that differ greatly from Osirion.

Humility

Menet has never been a woman of prodigious means. She has cobbled together a suit of armor, acquired weaponry second-hand, and basically scraped by since birth. She knows she looks nothing like the shining Paladins of Iomedae or Desna, but she also knows that people look to her for hope. She will never show self-consciousness about her patchwork armor, nor her well-worn weapons, whether she feels distressed by them or not. She exudes confidence regardless of her circumstances, and hopes to inspire confidence in those she serves – the poor and downtrodden.

Bonds:

  • Abraxas seems to be grappling with his wolfy curse more than usual. I hope to help him cope with his feelings, even though there is little I can do to properly help him.

  • Abraxas is conflicted about working with Baba Yaga, and I can understand why. I also have some trepidation considering that she is rumored to be evil. However, I believe that we can trust in the guidance of fate, and I hope to convince
  • Abraxas that no matter what happens, we will find the power to stop Baba Yaga from controlling us further when it’s all over.
  • Pippa and I have similar aims, I want to help her to reach her goals.
  • Pippa has a hunger for wealth, I want to dissuade her from pursuing coin as it is a corrupting force. I believe we should both be aiming to dismantle the system that requires it and creates such disparity between people based on earthly goods.
  • Odessa is sensitive under that hard outer shell, and I want to protect her from the things in the world that will cause her psychological or physical pain.
  • Hearing the words “my world kind of ended at 16” shocked and alarmed me. I couldn’t have guessed at what Odessa had been through. I knew it was nothing good from her emotional state, but to have everything so dramatically turned on its head… she must have endured a lot of pain. It has clearly contributed to her lack of self-worth. It will surely take time, but I want to help Odessa see her own value, and the value of living again.

  • I’ve admitted it – I told Odessa I was falling in love with her. Who knows what we are now… it feels so ill-defined, but I don’t want to push her too far. I want to let things happen naturally, but I’m so antsy to move forward at the same time. I truly didn’t think I could feel like this until now, and I have a lot of regrets concerning my past love life, but I want things to go right this time. I need to make sure I’m conscious of her feelings and work hard not to make mistakes that cause her to question this relationship.

    I’ve come to the realization that my worth to my companions is more substantial than I believed, and that this quest is indeed a quest I am meant to be part of. And I understand now that I was seeking martyrdom and believed I was going to die, which was clearly the reason my fear of death grew so strong. Though my fear has not gone completely, I am much more self-assured and I believe I will conquer it entirely with time. Now more than ever, I must work hard to be strong and keep my emotions in check. Khepri, please guide me, and help me keep this fear at bay.

  • Abraxas is knowledgeable about nature and traveling through wild areas, I want to learn how to be as helpful when traveling outside of cities (and without wagons and the relative comfort of the caravan). – Resolved
  • Abraxas’ knowledge of Irrisen will be invaluable in our journey. I should spend time comparing notes with him. -Retired

Co-Host Love Letter: Jess

Co-Host Love Letter Banner

So I get to kind of be the odd one out on some of these. I live up in Portland an everyone else lives in Northern California, so I don’t get to spend much time with them. I haven’t even met Angel or Jess in person, and it wasn’t until a couple months ago that I met Abbie. She and Dustin came up for my birthday ♡ but I have yet to get to hug Jess and Angel despite how much I’d love to. So for me, much or our friendships come from wonderful conversations and just getting to know each other through gameplay. So here we go my cast love letters:

Jess

Jess is the player I strive to be one day. She is almost always the one that calls out the mistakes if there is one, even if it’s her own, and just totally owns it. I recently listened back from the beginning to where we are now, and let me tell you how big of a difference it has made to have Jess in the game with us. She adds an element I didn’t know we needed, and then BAM there she was, and she was everything. We interviewed a few people to bring on as an additional player when we realized we were going to need the help. She was the one, no contest. I remember Dustin and I doing the interview and Abbie came in late. We were worried that whoever we chose would be drowned out by how obnoxious Abbie and I can be, but girl held her own. She wasn’t even phased and has just been an absolute joy to play with.

We all had to get to know Jess and figure her out mainly through gameplay, but as some people know I aggressively friend people, so I made a goal to befriend our resident hermit (Jess). I can only hope that she knows that we are friends now and she doesn’t really get a choice in the matter (sorry not sorry Jess). I hope in the very near future I will get a chance to see her in person and make up for the months of hugs that she has missed out on.

Don’t even get me started on Menet. If Menet miraculously jumped out of a portal into our world, I would drop everything and hop into her big strong arms never to be seen again. Menet is the kind of character that is made of so many layers, and I’m always ecstatic when we find out something new. Jess picked the perfect voice for her, and it’s all just so fabulous. I basically play constantly swooning over Menet. It’s fine.

One of my favorite things about Jess is that when we are playing, I can almost always rely on her to laugh at the same dumb stuff that I do. Sometimes we will be playing, and I’m stifling laughter and I look up, and Jess is too, which then turns into both of us bursting out laughing because we have not an ounce of self-control between the two of us. She is such a blessing, and I am so glad I have someone to talk to about magical girls and gay trash.

I don’t even know what I did before she joined us. Nothing nearly as funny, that’s what.
