    Pinocchio ("Lord Pino") The Puppetmaster



    Pinocchio was originally a puppet carved from a block of wood by his maker/father, and was magically imbued with life. He got into many scrapes during his misspent youth, ranging from simple mischief to outright debauchery and criminality. He was lucky to escape with his life, only through the intervention of his father Geppetto and the kindly Blue Fairy. Somehow, Pinocchio never quite managed to learn his lesson, and every time he promised to change his ways, he would eventually sink back into his old patterns and have to be rescued again.

    Eventually, Pinocchio found an opportunity presenting itself to him. In the hopes of getting her to owe him a major favor, Pinocchio used his savings to pay the medical bills of the Blue Fairy. She assumed his reason was generosity, and as a result she rewarded him by turning him into a "real boy," a creature of flesh rather than wood. Pinocchio was very displeased with this turn of events - rather than getting the boon of his choosing from the Blue Fairy later, he was now stuck in a weakened body and burdened with psychological conundrums that had never troubled his previously simple mind before.

    He is determined that someday, he will return to what he once was, and he hopes that his father's grimoire will allow him to do so. In the meantime, he has honed his own skills. He is a shrewd manipulator with a habit of spying on those who could prove useful to him, and also has developed the skill of influencing minions, both living puppets he has created for himself and unwitting humans he has bewitched into serving him.

    Geppetto


    Geppetto was a kindly woodcarver who was thrilled when he was able to become a father by using his magical powers to carve his son out of a block of special wood. Unfortunately for Geppetto, fatherhood did not turn out as he had hoped. Pinocchio's lack of conscience and inability to make good choices worried him greatly, both for his son and for others that Pinocchio could put in harm's way.

    When Pinocchio demanded his father's grimoire to change himself from flesh back to wood, Geppetto feared that his son would use the book of spells for evil rather than good. He wanted to give Pinocchio a chance, though, so he set up a series of challenges in an abandoned castle so that Pinocchio could prove himself worthy of his father's trust.

    What happened next, only Geppetto and Pinocchio know. Currently Geppetto is missing, and Pinocchio has given himself free run of the castle in his father's absence.
