Traits
[Paranoid] Neutral trait
This character will be more nervous of suspicious situations, and less willing to take risks. They may put extra effort into making sure everything is safe before feeling comfortable. While this normally makes things safer for them, it can also be a huge time waster.
[Stone-Faced] Neutral trait
This character shows a lack of expression, or is able to switch from being expressive to having a lack of it. This character can be hard to read for both friends and foe. You may also be unable to see the morale, sanity, and general feelings of this character in the crew logs.
[Manipulative] Negative trait
This character will, if given the chance, take advantage of a character for their own gain. This character is likely to tell others to do things that help themselves but not the person being told to do the action. Manipulative highly lowers the morale and may lower the sanity of a character if it happens too much.
[Ruthless] Negative trait
A more extreme version of [Pragmatic]. Where a pragmatic person would save 100 lives over one loved one, having done the math and weighed the odds, the ruthless person would be willing to sacrifice 100 lives to get rid of one person.
[Compelling] Positive trait
This character not only has a way with words but people are ready and willing to listen. This trait means this character has a better chance when trying to convince a character to do a deed. Sometimes this character might even be willing to convince others to do things they'd never even consider before.
[Deceptive] Positive trait
This character is crafty when it comes to lying and deception, able to more easily trick others to get what they want. They may also have a knack for illusions.
[Prudent] Positive trait
This character is unlikely to lose sanity in most situations, only being affected by something like a death, even then not by much.
[Augmented] Purple trait
You're not an X anymore, huh?


Original Creator: Iron



Physical Description

Leyler Erdell appears to be a slightly larger than average queolchrost, with a more grayish skin than average and red irises. He has no fin. He is seen occasionally in videos, pictures or broadcasts. It appears the broadcasting is indirect in some form, despite seeming to be live and has an above average delay. The area where the public broadcast is sent out has been proven to not be his location. It is rumored he has not been seen in person for countless years due to an assassination attempt a long time ago.

Personality & Traits

Erdel lives secluded in his home, which many presume to be some sort of fortified building. He conducts all business from his home and people tend to only see segments of it through the backgrounds of images and videos. He tends to act politely to an extent in conversation, but sometimes seems to shift into more aggressive speech with certain topics. He tends to be quite effective at speechcraft in general. He sometimes seems to ignore questions or comments of certain natures. He will often draw out statements regarding some topics for a long time, often leaving little substantial information. This can often lead to sentences that are nearly devoid of meaning. He appears to greatly value the overall success of the only two queolchrost worlds, which he governs. He tends to speak in a less aggressive tone about topics which tend to cause a display of aggression when there appears to be an issue or threat.

History

Most historical information on Erdel are from vague government statements or direct statements. He has officially stated that he is an early queolchrost. It is known he was the director of queolchrost in the queolchrost’s creators’ government and was intended to be able to direct their work efficiently and interpret the creators’ orders. He performed well, but utilized loopholes in the vague phrasing of directives to justify eradication of their creators and the foundation of the current queolchrost government. Ever since, he has acted as a leader. Despite being able to change any part of the government he orders to have changed, he claims to limit it to issues that are important, diplomatic, and/or time sensitive. It is also important to note that even when his word is not being used in a legal setting, many queolchrost still highly value it.

Special

Covered Tracks: Erdel claims to be great at misrepresenting his location for his own safety. This claim is unproven as there are no recorded attempts on his life or recorded attempts to locate him. Some claim that he communicates on encrypted signals across multiple sections, with only the final location having the full decrypted data. Some claim that there is a large deal of misinformation about him. Some theorize that there are false locations that people are diverted to. If that were the case that there would have to be a significant amount of resources used to fund such efforts. It is unclear why someone with no officially recorded attempts on his life would live in protected seclusion.

Trivia

• Leyler Erdel has a minor presence online, but seems to prefer audio broadcasts and voice calls to other methods of communications. He is the host of a radio show in his free time.

• Erdel claims to have a collection of military equipment from the pre-revolution and revolution era of queolchrost history, including his old high general’s gear. The pictures he released appear to show well maintained equipment, but the date of the photography is unknown. They could very well date from before his last recorded public appearance.

• Erdel has made a variety of statements about the queolchrost’s history, but many of them lack fine details including dates and names.
