The Fessal Race

People of the Fessal race are politely called “Long Noses”, but are most often referred to as “Spoilers”, “Raiders”, “Soldiers”, or even “Swine.”

STENGE: by artist Riley Stark,

Stenge
Long Nose race, male.
Age: c. 26 years old.
Coloring: His skin could be most any skin color. Not sure about his eyes, or hair.
Clothing: shabby primitive fatigues, barefoot. Stenge is a lowly Private – a Sad Sack – in Razor’s Battalion Headquarters. This Fessal is mostly for some comic relief, though as part of the protagonist faction he does cause some considerable trouble for our heroes. He isn’t all that bright, and he has trouble becoming proficient in the Soldier art of using creative insults. Socially, he is a loser. He desperately wants to gain a promotion for himself, and for his dead father’s name. Stenge is well known for his very foul-smelling body odor. It seems he doesn’t bathe. Ever. But for some reason, this odd and not-so-bright character is remarkably good at swordplay.

RAZOR: by artist Riley Stark,

Colonel Razor
Long Nose race, male.
Age: c. 50 years old.
Coloring: His skin could be most any skin color. Not sure about his eyes, or hair.
Razor is a cold, cruel, ruthless, cunning, commander of a Long Nose Army Battalion.
Clothing: When he wears his full battle dress, it consists of a polished black leather thigh-length coat, black leather pants, shiny black leather boots and black leather gloves. His coat is overlaid with polished silver mail, (and, for special occasions it’s decorated with his many campaign medals.) His scabbard is leather as well, but is dyed a bright and shiny red. His helmet is highly polished copper.
Scared and torn ears, right eye is clouded white and blind. walks with a painful battle-won limp.

Lieutenant Fleam
Long Nose race, male.
Age: c. 30 years old.
Coloring: His skin could be most any skin color. Not sure about his eyes, or hair.
Clothing: nice military tunic, boots. Fleam is one of Razor’s Lieutenants. Fleam is unusually “straight arrow” for a soldier and this makes him a threat to Razor. The two don’t like each other. Fleam is serious and ambitious.

Sergeant Klek
Long Nose race, male.
Age: c. 30 years old.
Coloring: His skin could be most any skin color. Not sure about his eyes, or hair.
Clothing: shabby primitive fatigues, simple boots. Kleck is a Sergeant in Razor’s Battalion, and heads the same squad Stenge is in. Klek is a no-nonsense Sergeant, and he isn’t a fan of Stenge. Eventually, Klek crosses Stenge and the two have some tension between themselves. Klek eventually gets “disappeared”.

WINNIE: by artist Riley Stark,

Winniver ‘Winnie’ Flaystone
Long Nose race, female.
Age: c. 30 years old.
Coloring: Her skin could be most any skin color. Not sure about her eyes, or hair.
Clothing: Crisp, clean, modest, homemaker style. Winnie is the wife of the commander of city/military installation. She receives a surprise visit by the story’s main characters – but they are even more surprised to learn that the Fessal race can be more than civilized – they can be charming, gracious, and kind.
