Bastien is tall with natural good looks and grace. He sometimes lets his hair grow but usually it is cropped at least above his shoulders and is thick and black. He often wears bright and eccentric clothing designed to accentuate his body. He has a large scar on his left hip.

(FC: Adyita Roy Kapur)

Bastien has good intentions in general, but his tendency to wax lyrical and act pretentious about most things can rub people up the wrong way. Everything he does is a kind of performance with an effort to charm and attract those around him - residual from being a performer for much of his youth.

If he is passionate about something he can quickly grow angry and insistent but never violent. He is knowledgeable on many subjects relevant to 1700s Earth, but none in the Hollowed Grounds. Still it is clear he is intelligent and willing to learn.

A naturally creative person, he spends a lot of time painting, drawing and making up performances.

Bastien was born in 1700s Venice to 3rd generation Indian immigrants to France. He grew up not poor but hardly a prince, spending much of his childhood performing tricks in the streets of Paris with travelling circus troupes to make money. In his teens he earned a scholarship to a college of the arts in Venice and stayed there for the rest of his life.

At 22 he began the 'Lost and Found Refuge', a bohemian shelter for young artists and creatives. The deal was simple - room and board and support in return for 50% of artistic profits and a mention of Bastien's name. Within three years he was one of the most important men in the countries art scene. Dealing his students work and making his own was rewarding and profitable; before long Bastien was rubbing elbows (and other things) with the elite nobles.

Ten years passed before he knew it. His work had begun to get stale, his paintings dull, when his entire life changed. He went to sleep in Venice and woke up being spat out into the Hollowed Grounds. Such a change was difficult to adjust to, having no idea where he was or why he was there, but Bastien was pleased to see that this place had alcohol to help him adjust to the idea.

The Rathskeller was familiar enough he could almost forget he wasn't home, at least sometimes. Getting work there as a bartender, he now spends his time trying to charm the patrons in order to forget the aching homesickness and confusion in his gut.

Bastien made friends with Rexanna, Remi, Ronin. He worked briefly as a bartender at the Rathskeller, where he had a...experience with Edrei, in Where Everybody Knows Your Name.

Bastien met Safrin and began a church dedicated to her ({PQ} Dionysus Reborn) involved in plenty of hedonism and orgies and drinking. However, eventually he ran foul of Safrin and was cursed by her to be an old man in Lost Potential.

Bastien decided he had had enough of being cursed and took up The Voice on an offer to ascend in {God Quest} Delivery. He showed Rexanna his fangs and to his great delight (because he has a crush on her) was allowed to bite her in Ascended to Greatness. He then began the 'Artist's Sanctuary', an artist's guild, in {PQ} The Artist's Sanctuary.
