Valka Fae Clan spotlight: Gadgix

Chieftain: Desz (Pronounced Dez)

History: Once led by the overzealous, even bigoted at times, Ferrarus, the Gadgix clan has always devoted itself to the studying of technology. Believing it to be a superior means of defense than simple brute force, most in this clan aren’t very physically imposing. Ferrarus believed in this cause so much, that when Gladius was inducting Natalie and her clan into the Valka Fae – he challenged her to a fight to the death. The fact that he also thought of her as sub fairy filth may have also played a role in this challenge. As with most fights of this nature, it was a highly public spectacle in which Natalie emerged victorious, however she opted not to kill Ferrarus; stating that she didn’t waste her time or her appetite on the weak.

Infuriated by her refusal to kill him after his weakness was made public, he orchestrated a plan to kidnap Natalie’s daughter Relina, and force her into an unfair fight elsewhere. Desz, his second in command at the time, alerted Natalie to the plot – which enabled her to turn the tables entirely on Ferrarus’s plot. Enraged by the attempt on her daughter, Natalie used her full power to utterly crush him in the rematch. Thereafter she devoured him, after hours of playing with him and teasing him with various things, such as chocolate. After the plot was made public, his son and everyone else involved were exiled from the spire, while Desz was promoted to be the new chieftain and given the opportunity to promote someone else to her “lieutenant”.

After that, she suddenly vanished without a trace, and most of her clan along with her. There was a note which eluded to a temporary self-exile – for the clan to find itself, and really rebuild anew after its former leader brought such disgrace. Lately, the Gadgix have started to return to Valkyrus (the inter-dimensional Valka Fae Spire) and word of their chieftain and lieutenant’s return has the entire community abuzz…

Threat Level: Low to Moderate-While the females are still very much man-eating, they spend a lot of time around humans and other species (generally disguised), working odd jobs as guides, mercenaries, soldiers, assassins, and many other things where their “unique” skillset and abilities may be useful. As a result, many Gadgix have very specific predation rules, and most have sworn off humans and the like all together. This also means they don’t run around picking or seeking fights, like those of Natalie’s clan would.

Their near obsession with new tech, also makes them easy to deal with should one ever find themselves the subject of a Gadgix’s hunger. They will almost always opt for the technology over devouring the person with it – even after getting it from that person they won’t harm them.

Habits: Tinkering and theorizing is what most Gadgix spend their time doing. If not that, then whatever job they’ve taken up – they tend to be very meticulous with mastering that and bettering themselves at it.

Techniques: Varies widely from fairy to fairy. They do, however, all make use of a similar tech they refer to as ether generators. In most cases, this allows them to channel, transfer, and use the magic their wings have plus that in their bodies and in the atmosphere to power their devices. As a result, Gadgix don’t use completed spells in combat at all – they use the raw energy behind the magic instead. The only exception to this is shrinking and growth spells of course. Without magic, or a great understanding of how Gadgix technology works, one cannot hope to use their own weapons against them. Disarming a Gadgix does not render them harmless at all, but rather now you’re dealing with a Felaryan fairy with combat training and a willingness to use it…
This is
Valkyrus, Natalie, Desz, Relina, and anything else related would be minez ^_^the first of several Valka Clan spotlights - to detail the histories of each clan and some of it's reason for existing. I plan on doing one for each clan, followed by a spotlight for it's leader. I would ask that anyone interested in making a Valka Fae follow that format for the character description :)

I figured'd i do the Gadgix first, because i'm changing up their lore

Felarya is property of :iconkarbo: , any other mentions are property of their respective owners

To say this is a late comment is an understatement heh... but good to hear about this clan as well now, in particular Desz's actions with them all.  Seeing you have some more on her as well in your comment to Brent makes me more curious on her as well.  The chocolate, as mentioned quite a bit now heh, was very amusing though haha.

better late than never right? :P

Mhh teasing him with things involving chocolate ? XD I get strange pictures in my head :D

Oh she had plenty of fun before eating him - all at his expense of course!

Woo! Good stuff, thanks for the info :D I like them even more... silly egotistical ex-leader and all. I love that Ferrarus is a double pun on Ferrari and Iron... nice work if you can get it :P I don't know if Desz is a traitor who sold out her leader to take his place, or a concerned citizen who did the right thing when her leader went too far... I'm sure there are fey on both sides of the issue.

My OC EmberJoy comes from a technologically advanced space-faring race that doesn't believe in magic :lol: They have a lot of trouble making their arm-mounted fusion-powered pico-maniupulator work once they crash-land on Felarya, and I was thinking that a fey obsessed with technology would be just the thing to help/hinder/drive them insane... and now I'm sure of it!

I look forward to reading more about the clans and their leaders :)

geez - when they hell did you do this?!... and why did i not see it ;-;. Now i feel terrible!

Desz is actually a fairy of honor, and Natalie had taken her in at one point before she ended up in Valkyrus. So they had a history - Natalie was almost like a mother to her, as she is with many.

Oh i can't wait to see how that plays out!

I did it a while ago... and don't feel bad, I think only 2 of my watchers ever read it... I'm better known for 3D art and the occasional sketch rather than any kind of literature :D I've got the second and third chapters planned out, and now that you and Karbo both said you're interested, I have to continue it :D

It's good to know more about Desz and Natalie... If Nat's like a mom to her, then kidnapping Nat's daughter is almost like stealing Desz's little sister... and that ain't right.

Every time I read "Ferrarus", I think of Ferrari. I really must question why he chose to challenge the obviously athletic and combat savvy woman to a fist fight when he's an engineer, but I guess not everyone becomes wiser as they get older. I would ask what Natalie was exactly doing when she teased him with chocolate, but I'm just going to pretend it was like that episode of Spongebob Squarepants where he and Patrick were on the run and only had two bars of chocolate to subsit on, because it's probably funnier that way. I don't really have anything to criticize since from what I can gather, they're essentially fairies with a knack for magitech over sorcery.

You are perceptive in a myriad of ways :) - That is what his name is based on - his son's name is Enzo = Ferrari Enzo

The technology that the Gadgix use, allows them to fight on the level of Natalie's clan. They augment and boost their strength in major ways.

Natalie's chocolate torture would have be the equivalent of water boarding with chocoalate - in and out of her mouth... for hours... and hours.

So they basically wear some sort of magic-fueled power armor. Sounds like a clan of Dr. Dooms minus the supremely hammy and egotistical dictator.
