High Concept: Bridge Mound Troll
Motivation: This is my home, you shall not pass
Relationships: Blanch and Ringo (Antagonists), Charles Wielkiczłowiek (Son, unwilling heir) Anyone who gets too close

Yobchug is a wildfae troll who is old enough, experienced enough, and cunning enough to rise somewhat above the brute stereotype of his kind. He’s been around a long time, enough to have a better claim on the mound than anyone. Maybe he was even one of the fae who built it, though he hasn’t bothered to say.

Whatever his background though, he believes in keeping the mound whole, and as free as possible from the machinations of the courts. How successful that’s been, and how much of that success is truly due to him and not either court not wanting the other to gain control is hardly clear, not that anything in Faerie or its politics ever is.

The Serpent Mound Dragon
Face: Some Old Legend
Motivation: Who Even Knows
Relationships: None

The Serpent Mound was built with a purpose, one linked to worship of power, meteorites, magic, the solstice, and big snakes. The Cherokee specifically link it to the Ukenta, a large, winged serpent of power. Its obvious to anyone in the “community” that its a dragon, and there are all sorts of old stories linked to the mound.

However, most are in agreement that the stories are just of a dragon, some lesser beast that tormented the area for a time, around a thousand years ago. There are those that might make the case for a greater dragon being involved, but they can’t link it to a specific one, and none of them have ever had any interest in it as far as the community can tell. The dragon remains just that, a legend lurking in the minds of any practitioner or being that brushes up against the Serpent Ley and feels its power.
