The Lord Ruler's perfect capital city, Luthadel, is doing the impossible: rebelling. Skaa half-breeds are being taught the power of Allomancy, something that the Lord Ruler's obligators said only existed in the nobility. The enslaved skaa, with their murderous benefactor, now fight back against a living god's oppression.

So, the Inquisition was formed. The nobles begin to fear assassination from all sides. The times of nobility Mistborn killing each other are over. The Steel Inquisitors look for aristocrat traitors and insurgent skaa, and the skaa try with all their strength to merely survive. The Lord Ruler's perfect Final Empire is slowly devolving into chaos.

Hey there, Grim! I’m glad to see how excited you are to make new characters and get started in the RP! Aldric/Baer is off to a great start, but I just need to get clarification on a few things before we can proceed.

First, unfortunately, the name “Aldric” is already taken, so I’m going to have to ask you to pick a different given name for Lord Charbonneau. While realistically we know there are plenty of in-world people with the same given name, we try to not let it happen with player characters to keep things from getting too confusing.

We talked on the Discord about how the staff need to actually see a character in their entirety before we can or will approve them. And while you’re off to a good start here, I would like a little clarification on which of his dual identities is the original one. If I’m reading correctly, Baer killed the original Lord Charbonneau, took over as him, and then due to an unseen traumatic event began to dissociate and formed false memories of having been him all along? Is that correct? If so, how did he get away with it without the other Charbonneaus noticing that their heir had been replaced? How did he learn how to impersonate a noble? Honestly, the story of him taking over Charbonneau sounds really compelling, and seeing it in his app would add a lot to this character.

And last but not least, we do need to see this traumatic event that led to his mental break. Was it the murder of the Charbonneaus, or something else?

You’ve got a fascinating start here! I just need to fill in the blanks before I can stamp him. And as always, we’re available to brainstorm with you if you want via the Workshop and the Discord. Thanks!

To say that Jalen was getting frustrated would be an understatement. No matter how he tried to get Lady Delissia's attention, by following her or calling her name or even reaching for her arm, she slipped away. As though getting away from him would get her closer to her friend with the hotel burning out from under them! They were going to need to all move up every minute, not down, and trying to make her way alone would only get her hurt - or killed.

Finally, she broke away through the crowd and made her way to the door, and Jalen saw his chance. He burned his brass a little hotter, laying on the comforting layer of calm all the more, hoping that it would keep the crowd subdued while he ran about like a cat chasing its own tail while maybe making Lady Delissia focus enough to listen to him.

"Delissia!" He called as her hand wrapped around the doorknob. "Delissia, wait!" The door opened and he lunged forward, slamming it shut again before too much smoke could pour into the room. There were a few shouts and grumbles at what did make it in, but Jalen flared his brass, and they settled down.

"There's no going to your friend by that route," he told her in a firm but low voice. "The floors beneath us are completely engulfed; the reason Daeric is ferrying everyone out is because nobody can walk any further. We're all stuck up here until our turns to be carried down. If your friend was on the bottom floor when you lost him, your only choice to find him is to search from ground level. Is he an Allomancer?"
