- The Blackheart
- Ageless Alchemist
In the middle of the Nineteenth Century, a girl was born in Prussia with a heart three sizes too small. In an effort to overcome this condition, as a teenager she turned to alchemy, seeking the Elixir of Life. She crafted a strange alchemical engine—the Blackheart—which uses the power of coal to sustain her miserable life, at the cost of her emotions, leaving her bereft of any sense of humanity. Thus, the girl came to be known to the world as Baroness Blackheart.
She searches for lost alchemical formularies, mystical ingredients, and dangerous technologies to aid her in her quest…
Because she lacks emotions, she cares not at all about destroying economies with her alchemical gold. She doesn’t blink an eye about removing the pituitary glands from orphan children, or wince at destroying an entire soup kitchen just to get at a particular copper kettle (because someone of mystical import once used it). Initially, she sought the Elixir of Life so that she could put aside the Blackheart, but who knows now if that is yet her plan?
The Baroness has severe and stereotypically Germanic features, with long black hair. She tends to wear men’s clothing, tending towards leather and dark wools. In the center of her chest is the Blackheart, a large metal device that seems to be a cross between a vest and a cast iron stove. The burning coal within surrounds her with smoke and soot.
