A mistress punishing her slave.
by John Willie

At some point in your life, you perform pleasure and feel the power of being in charge, something that gives you liveliness. Unlike a prostitute or courtesan, a domineering woman knows very well what she wants and what pleases her. That is why she is not paid to do undesirable work since she commands her submissives. It can be viewed professionally or simply personal as it can carry this philosophy throughout your personality and the way you view the world. The dominatrix can consistently and responsibly perform this fetish and respect its submissive before pushing it to the limit or simply using its will and indulging in sadism for the sake of pleasure. When making a character with this background ask yourself these questions: What led your character this way? Did something in your destiny compel you? Was it a twisted and unfortunate fate? Or was it by your own choice? How much does this psychologically build your character? Is it in your nature to dominate or is it simply about money? What are the limits that define your way of dominating? Do you take domination to other areas of your life or just where you want to attend? Do violence and pleasure really go together or is this for your character just an act? Ask, because the only one who can ask questions here is the dominator.

Feature: Dominating Presence[edit]

Whenever people are around them, they feel a dominant and empowering aura. Because of this, many people tend to be intimidated by you and avoid you as much as possible. However, your presence can also be used to your advantage; extracting information is easier for you because people crack under the pressure of your dominance. Likewise, people find it harder to deceive or withhold information from you.

As such, you gain advantages on Persuasion & Insight checks.

Alternate Feature: Personal Slave[edit]

At some point in her life as a Dominatrix, she chose one of her submissives either by force or merit, to bring with her on her travels. Choose this trait to earn a loyal slave who will perform as your pet.

This character is a peasant or ordinary person who can perform common tasks ordered by you, but cannot fight for you, though is always very willing to obey.
