  • Magic item- Treacherous hand of Deicide (34 point magic item)

Orlando's right hand is a magic item with a particular knack for circumventing god's hard to kill conditions (given the right circumstances). It has a circulatory system made of glass and flesh crafted from dream. It appears as a normal fleshy hand specked with flecks of blood but to the touch the flesh is insubstantial and the veins hard. It is possibly the most attuned to treachery object in the world. The hand was forged by being frozen in the Frost Prince's breath, then having the veins vitrified and the flesh destroyed, the flesh was then replaced by dream flesh using glass magic, finally the item was fixed by being used to backstab the Rattle Prince. Bound all his levels of magic in to it to overcome Dishonour's hard to kill condition. Part of the Godhood of the Frost Prince is now stored inside it waiting to activate if he gains the other portion.

In Character Background Information

Orlando was the youngest of nine children (all sons) born to Annabella Cristofori, the wife of Gerard Cristofori. Like most useless youngest sons he was packed off to military school as soon as he was old enough. Orlando was a terrible student, more interested in men, wine and song, than actually learning anything of use. He was in spite of this quite popular with some of his fellow students. His mother, Annabella, adored him but there was very little love lost between him and his father. This situation was helped very little by the occassional rumours that Orlando was not Gerard's son at all. Orlando's relationship with his brothers was for the most part equally appalling, with the exception of Henry, an accountant and priest of the Prince of Trade Winds, who was the closest to him in age.

It was no surprise to anyone when Orlando got himself expelled from school and sent home. Nor was it any surprise that he had managed to spend all of the money that his father had gave him on frivolities. Although his father wished to cast him out for this, his mother's pleas were enough to spare him. Several months later, however, his mother passed away from a sudden illness and Orlando was cast out from the family. Fortunately his skill as a musician earned him a few gigs at the homes of some minor nobility and he managed to work his way out of poverty. Depending on who you talk to the Shining Order became interested in him or he took an interest in the Shining Order. Whatever he case someone took a fancy to the idea of hiring him as an embedded bard to follow their young acolyte Ulrych von Rauschpfeife and to generally promote the Order's image.

Orlando seemingly is a reformed character. Having invested in a small bakery and various other merchantile ventures, he is known as an upstanding, if only thus far moderately successful, businessman. He is happily married under the eyes of the Light to Sir Ulrych. Orlando is a competent Wind Sorcerer and in polite company claims to be a servant of an obscure wind power of music, the Prince of Sighs. In less polite company he claims to serve the Hushed Princess.

Out of Character Background Information

Annabella Cristofori was married off at a young age in an affair that had been arranged by her family. She never really loved her husband and so when a travelling salesman came by the White City she was quick to fall for his charms. She hid the truth of Orlando's parentage from her husband and quietly doted upon the boy as her favorite son but she suspected her husband knew the truth. Orlando was badly mistreated by Gerard because of this and moreover he now suspects that he poisoned his mother in order to allow himself to remarry. Orlando would like nothing more than to gain vengence for this. Orlando's true father to date has shown no obvious interest in him.

Whilst he was living on the streets of the White City he was mentored in the ways of the Rattle Prince by an elderly man by the name of Escorias (who he later killed, well that's what he would have wanted). Escorias also taught him purse cutting techniques, which got him in to trouble when he tried to steal the wallet of the wrong person. Wn he was offered the choice of joining the ranks of the Low Guard or loosing his hands he made the predictable decision. The Low Guard helped him set himself up as a spy on the Shining Order by ensuring he got assigned to one of their new acolytes.


Although Orlando in a very odd way does care about Sir Ulrych, he has many other lovers (and quite possibly illegitimate children) about the city. He has made inways with the Port of Glass embassy through Avity, his friend with benefits.
