Character Name: Tsarsaidor
Alternate Identities: Nick, Tsar, The Red Thing, The Ruby Dragon, Rogue's Lover
Player Name: Phil
 
APPEARANCE
Hair Color: Red Scales
Eye Color: Golden
Height: 104' 2"
Weight: 900000 lbs
Description:

     As a dragon, Tsar is a magnificent ruby in color, deep red and luminous. His wing span is somewhat less than Oldest of Dragons but no less impressive. As a human he prefers long black hair, golden eyes, and a tall lean form, nicely muscled but not overly so. At home, in his tree house, he prefers silk shirts and crisply pressed slacks and goes barefoot. On a mission he dresses in expensive hand made Savel Row suits, silk ties and Italian shoes. As the Red Thing he is a tiny version of his true dragon form, still the incredible ruby red with golden eyes. He is only about 18" nose to tail and weighs only about two pounds. His favorite spot in Red Thing form is draped around Rogue's shoulders, his tail gently encircling her neck.

BACKGROUND

     From the dawn of time he came, complete Master of the Balance between Good and Evil, his very existence not even guessed. His history is as vast as his experience and he has seen everything. Tsar's involvement with the Wild Hunt began when he manipulated Ghost Archer and his group into a trip across the galaxy to stem an invasion of a peaceful world. The mission resulted in success for Ghost Archer and Tsar but the death of Sparkler began an animosity on the Archer's part that has yet to abate.
     Nearly a year ago, Tsar approached Ghost Archer with a mission to again save a planet but Archer's own commitments to Thistle precluded his aiding the Master of Balance. The rest of the Wild Hunt was recruited and for the first time Tsar encountered Lady Rogue of the Ocean. He was familiar with the desire this svelte young girl inspired in him and at first he thought nothing of it. However, after the group completed their mission, Tsar began to take an interest in the beautiful Rogue. Archer's return from his travels without Thistle kindled something new in the Dragon, jealousy, for Rogue's concern for her former love pricked a nerve in Tsar. As usual, his evil side surfaced and in spite he began to use his magic to increase Archer's despair at Thistle's apparent death while increasing his attraction to Rogue. Thistle sudden return after many months halted his well-laid plans and made Tsar realize his true feelings for Rogue. Ghost Archer has not forgiven or forgotten the incident no matter that Tsar strives to make amends.
     Tsar has taken up residence in a house built in a Mallorn tree transported from Narel's home world of Arda. With Rogue's help he has decorated the tree house and made it a warm and comfortable abode, far different then the cave dwellings he is used too. Recently, he and Rogue journeyed to her home world of V but that story will be chronicled elsewhere.

POWERS/TACTICS

     It is difficult to imagine a being more powerful than Tsarsaidor, his skills with magic are vast and varied but he is not one to display his full power, preferring minor magics or manipulating others into doing the work for him. His very physical strength and speed makes him a nearly unbeatable foe but coupled with his magic, he is supreme.

PERSONALITY/MOTIVATION

     Tsar before meeting Rogue was a cold, methodical being, concerned only with the Balance and caring nothing of the results of his actions. He was ruthless in his manipulation of others and thought nothing of condemning millions to death. Those that knew of his existence found him a heartless practical joker that could only be influenced by intense flattery or downright begging. Always the lives he touched change dramatically and rarely to the good. He used everyone and everything to maintain his precious Balance.
     Then came Rogue. She unleashed in him millions of years of pent up emotions leaving him dazed and confused. His sense of the Balance slipped and for a time the Universe tipped violently back and forth. Slowly with the help of the woman he loved he came to grips with his tumultuous soul and has become a kinder Master of Balance. Now he regrets the Evil he must do and strives to minimize it's effect, as a result the Universe is slowly sliding into a Golden Age.
Tsar is an inquisitive being, given to constant investigation of all around him. He still has a slightly twisted sense of humor and delights in practical jokes few find funny. Another thing the 'old' Tsar would never have been, the 'new' Tsar is a caring, loving being. His newest joy is in helping his new friends, unfortunately, his idea of help does not always coincide with their point of view.
     Rogue is now the most important thing in his life and he loves her to distraction, so much so, in fact, that for a time he tried to deny his very nature as Balance. After accompanying Rogue to her home world he learned it was possible to love this girl and do his job as Master of Balance.

 

Meditations On a Girl

      "You are going into a ‘good' phase," Jade's cool, unaccented voice broke Tsar's concentration.  He looked up from the fire, the images vanishing.
      "What makes you think that?"
      "For one thing," the delicate Japanese face was set in an inscrutable mask. "You failed to bring your project with the Archer to fruition when you had the opportunity."
      "Thistle returned," Tsar pointed out.
      "Convenient excuse ," the girl retorted.  "With little effort on your part Archer would have surrendered his hope.  Your skill in manipulating his feelings was less then whole-hearted and your spells on the girl were only marginally effective."
      "You question my talents?" Tsar's scowling face did not cause the least bit of concern in Jade.
      "Your talents are peerless, Lord," the girl replied.  "It is your heart I question."
      "Speak plainly, Jade," the anger in the dragon's voice was not anywhere near levels she had witnessed.
      "You would have this girl for yourself," she said simply.
      All trace of ire vanished from Tsar's countenance.
      "There is something about this WaterOne that has taken hold of your heart and shifted the balance too to the ‘good'," Jade said.
      Tsar sat before the blaze, head sunk on his shoulders, making no comment.
      "One more spell and Archer and she would have tumbled but you would not have her in another's arms."
      "It was not necessary," Tsar replied.  "Archer is to honest for his own good.  He told Thistle of his attraction to Rogue and that may have been enough to destroy her love."
      "Do not place money on it, Lord," Jade said.  "Thistle is granddaughter to Ishtar, Goddess of Love as well as War."
      "Did he not leave?" he asked the rhetorical.  "Even now they have not spoken in a fort night."
      "You will never understand a woman's heart," Jade shook her head, long black hair flowing across her shoulders.  "She loves him still, only her trust is damaged."
      "It will be enough," he said.
      "Will you cast a spell on her to increase her mistrust?"
      "I cannot," he said.  "She is an Avatar now."
      "Your spells work on Archer and Rogue."
      "They are incarnations not the embodiment of a Goddess," Tsar gestured and the flames in the hearth turned the color of the deep sea.  Images formed of Rogue swimming slowly through the depths.  Tsar smiled.
      "No, nature will out from here," he said, nearly inaudibly.
      "In all things, it would seem."
      Tsar did not hear Jade or affected not to notice.  The girl watched Rogue speculatively in the magic fire.
      *This one touches Tsar's heart.* she thought to herself. *Perhaps if I study her I may see what it is he sees and emulate it.*
      Tsar grinned.
      "No, Jade," he rumbled.  "You will never have what this girl has.  She is sweet and innocent, full of play and quixotic moods.  Her beauty is but a physical manifestation.  It is her soul that entices.  You are jaded, world wise and boring.  Take thyself and thy ilk and be gone from me, I tire of thee and thine."
      Jade vanished.  Else where in the lair Crystal and Emmy followed her.  Around the world the hand maidens of Balance disappeared.  At last, alone for the first time in a million years, Tsar smiled to himself.
      "Now, Love," he said to the girl pictured in the sea blue blaze.  "Thou art mine only confidant.  Be assured, it is as I wish it."
      Far out to sea Rogue entered her cozy underwater home, climbing slowly from the pool.  She stood a moment, still, as though realizing she was watched, then smiled softly.
      "May the waters . . ." she said quietly.
      "Sweet dreams, Treasured," Tsar replied.
      And Rogue heard.
