Two of my favorite villains from the Wasteland Saga.
Lean and athletic in build, Flint stands just under six feet in height and is most unpleasant in appearance, with a bone-white complexion, a long and pointed nose, a prominent chin, and a spiky mane of coarse raven-black hair, while his smile would make small children run screaming. Although Flint can use magic to disguise himself as human, without his faerie glamour there is no mistaking him for a Goblin: his ears are long and pointed, his sharp teeth are wicked fangs with a prominent pair of incisors like those of a rat, and his piercing eyes are a ghastly blood crimson while his fingernails are razor-sharp claws. Flint prefers to wear expensive clothes in the style of the middle Victorian period and can be quite the dandy, wearing the business suit of an upper class gentleman in somber black, charcoal gray, and ivory with a pair of fingerless gloves made from soft leather and an ebony walking stick with a silver head; his only piece of jewelry is an expensive watch chain forged from nickel silver from which hangs an elaborate pocket watch in a matching case.Personality:
Mister Flint is the more eloquent of the two Goblins, and says ten words for every one made by his partner. Flint prides himself on his vocabulary and education, and although a bit rough around the edges is quite crafty and intelligent. His voice is pleasing to the ear and has a strong British accent, although it often sounds like Flint is someone from the middle class attempting to imitate an aristocrat without the manners that comes with the social status. Flint prefers flashy and impressive magic, especially magical effects involving lightning and fire; of course, the more pain it inflicts, the more Mister Flint likes it.
Like his partner, Mister Flint is truly a monster: the Goblin takes a perverse pride in terrorizing his victims as well as inflicting pain and suffering, and his victims have been known to survive for days or even weeks before Flint allows them the mercy of death. Flint has spent centuries studying the nature of pain as well as the effects it can have on both mind and body, and on an intuitive level knows exactly how much torment a person can withstand before breaking them. This morbid fascination with pain and suffering has sometimes become his undoing, as Flint often becomes so involved with torturing his victims that other opponents can sneak up on him. Flint prefers knives and daggers in combat, and in addition to his talents as an expert knife-fighter can throw them with deadly accuracy. Flint is also an expert thief and con artist, and keeps an impressive number of throwing knives hidden on his person at all times; Flint can also summon knives and daggers at will, and with his magic can hurl up to a dozen knives at once.
As a final note, Mister Flint carries a walking stick that can instantly become an enchanted rapier capable of piercing almost any defenses while his pocket watch allows him to sidestep time, moving with such superhuman speed that Flint appears to vanish from one spot and reappear in another a split-second later.
Physical Description: Steel is one of the most lethal minions of Queen Bloodrose, and has been described as resembling a timber wolf attempting to imitate a Goblin. Massive and powerful in build, Mister Steel stands over seven feet in height and is most unpleasant in appearance, with a ruddy complexion like someone with a bad sunburn, a square chin like a bulldog, unpleasant features, and a disorderly mane of rust-colored hair. Although Steel would have difficulty disguising himself as human without magic, there is no mistaking him for a Goblin: his ears are long and pointed, his sharp teeth are lupine fangs, and his piercing eyes are a hideous green in color while his fingernails resemble wicked claws. Like his partner, Steel prefers to wear expensive clothes in the style of the middle Victorian period and can be quite the dandy, wearing the business suit of an upper class gentleman in somber black, charcoal gray, and ivory accented with blood crimson. Steel carries an ebony walking stick with a silver head while bracelets of nickel silver inscribed with strange runes encircle his wrists.
Personality: Mister Steel is more quiet and taciturn of the two partners, speaking only when necessary. His voice is a bass growl that bears a lower class British accent and is in sharp contrast to that of his partner, although it is obvious that in spite of his upbringing that Steel is a fairly intelligent and educated man. Steel prefers magic that enhances his already formidable combat skills, and in hand-to-hand combat is definitely the more dangerous of the two partners.
Like his partner, Steel is truly a monster: the Goblin takes a perverse pride in terrorizing his victims as well as inflicting pain and suffering, and his victims have been known to survive for days or even weeks before Flint allows them the mercy of death. Although his knowledge of torture is not as extensive as that of his partner, Steel more than makes up for it in inventiveness and sheer brutality; but much like his partner, Mister Steel can get so caught up in torturing his victims that other opponents can sneak up on him. In contrast to Mister Flint, Mister Steel is an expert cracksman and locksmith, and is an expert at breaking through defenses both magical and mundane. In battle, his bracelets become fighting gauntlets enchanted with the power to punch through almost anything while his walking stick becomes a longsword of supernatural sharpness; Mister Steel prefers to engage his opponents in hand-to-hand combat, and is a master of fisticuffs and medieval sword-fighting.
