The Mirror of the Morteo is an ancient painting which shows a portrait of it’s owner. The Mirror was originally commissioned by Miguelli de Morteo de Santolini to be created by the great artisan of magical items Masamune as a powerful weapon. The Mirror has been passed down through the Morteo line for hundreds of years, and over time has developed a soul and personality of it’s own, being arrogant, fanatically loyal to the Morteos, and bitingly witty and sarcastic.

Roleplaying the Mirror of the Morteo

The Mirror of the Morteo communicates by means of the portrait portrayed on it’s surface moving and speaking. The Mirror can abide with long silences if it is in thought, but is quick to speak if it sees an opportunity to be witty, point out something that might be helpful to the Morteo line, or sees something interesting.

The Mirror of the Morteo is also liable to, whenever it sees something especially ugly, launch off on a tirade about it’s hate for ugliness. Due to it’s long life, the Mirror of the Morteo can harbor long reaching plans, grudges, and debts, but is also quite vigilant of the short term.
If it is owned by someone other than it’s true owner, the Mirror will do everything in it’s power to be reunited with it’s owner, and it eagerly awaits the day when it will be.

The Mirror of the Morteo becomes more bitingly sarcastic, witty, disrespectful, and rude the lower it’s concordance becomes.
