    SKILLS & ABILITIES



    Special Abilities Quirrel might not be a warrior, but he wields his nail skillfully and is fully capable of defending himself. He can move short distances quickly, enough so to almost appear to be teleporting, and utilizes this to fight by darting around until he can find a good opportunity to deal a decisive strike with his nail. Aside from combat, Quirrel is able to travel through dangerous areas while avoiding damage from both hostile creatures and difficult terrain. Additionally, bugs from Hallownest possess an energy called Soul. While Soul can be used to power magic and heal, Quirrel has not been shown to possess such capabilities. Still, the energy is there if someone would find a way to harvest it. Finally, when a bug dies with a potent wish or desire a magic charm with an effect related to their wish can form.
    Equipment Quirrel only possesses two items of note. The first is his trusty nail, a blade mixed with a spear used by many bugs of Hallownest. The other item of interest is the mask Quirrel wears on top of his head. The mask is magically resistant to damage and can effectively block attacks that hit it. Though not relevant, it also serves to unseal Monomon the Teacher, a great scholar from a long past age that Quirrel was connected to.






    WEAKNESSES

    Aside from his mask, Quirrel should be close to as durable as a normal human. Being a bug probably means he has an exoskeleton instead of skin, but if something could kill a person it could probably kill him.


    PERSONALITY

    Curious and adventurous most of the time, there is nothing that draws Quirrel as much as the thrill of discovery. The thrill of a quest is exhilirating, and he thrives in an atmosphere where one is either alert or dead. However, despite the danger of excessive curiosity he still excersises a healthy amount of practicality, such as endorsing the use of weapons taken from the dead if one needs to and recognizing the need to get adequate equipment before rushing into a dangerous situation. Far from coldly pragmatic though, Quirrel won't strike unless someone has given him reason to, although his nail will be readied just in case. He is even inclined to help those who need it, even putting himself into a fight if the situation demands it. Even with his love for adventure, Quirrel can find joy in activities as simple as sharing a meal or seeing a beautiful sight with another.

    Underneath his behavior lies a level of uncertainty about himself. Certain memories were wiped away from his mind but still left remnants of knowledge that he cannot explain the origin of. These hidden memories contribute to his wanderlust by manifesting as a pull to places he at one point knew about. He frequently will feel confusion over why he knows what he knows, and is unaware of what is missing from his mind.




    BRIEF HISTORY

    Long ago, Quirrel served Monomon the Teacher, an important member of the kingdom of Hallownest. Bugs in Hallownest are blessed with sentience, but the spread of an infection that removed the mind from all who caught it threatened the kingdom. Three great people, including Monomon, became seals for the source of the infection. But Monomon was wise and placed an additional level of security on herself in the form of Quirrel. Quirrel's memories of the matter were removed and he was entrusted with a mask that could be used to remove the protection shielding Monomon from harm.

    Many years passed. Quirrel had at some point left Hallownest for the sandy wasteland, but was now heading back to the kingdom that he could no longer remember was his home. After a brief conflict with a knight named Hornet, Quirrel finally returned to Hallownest. Exploring the now hostile environment of the kingdom, he was filled with the strange feeling of being pulled towards certain places. Without the knowledge of his missing memories, Quirrel was left with a bunch of information with no discernable source and many questions about his purpose for being here. During his travels the explorer had multiple encounters with a diminutive and silent knight. He had many one sided conversations with the hollow vessel, and had no idea that his exchange with the knight on Crystal Peak would be his last.


    ROLEPLAY SAMPLE

    The little knight that Quirrel had started to see as a travelling companion of sorts had left a few minutes ago. Quirrel remained seated on the bench, looking out onto the City of Tears. "Ah, so beautiful even in mourning!" he said to himself as he watched the endless cascade of water go by the window. He had told the little knight about his desire to find just where the water came from, but he really had no idea where to start. Hallownest's locales were connected in complex ways, and the infected guards still wandering the city would make getting lost significantly more dangerous. It was a real problem to be sure.

    Though he might claim it was due to other factors, Quirrel was afraid. The pull he felt towards this city was strong, almost as strong as the pull that brought him to Hallownest in the first place. That alone could be dismissed as wanderlust, but he seemed to know too much about the capital for a first time visitor. The sense of deja vu when he first looked through this window was off-putting, to say the least.

    It was a nice rest, but there was much to do. Quirrel stood up from the bench slowly and adjusted the mask atop his head. It suddenly struck him that he couldn't remember how he came into possession of such a well crafted ornament. Oh well, that wasn't important. Readying his nail, Quirrel went exploring.
