Ever since I've started playing Gw2 in '13, I've been fascinated by the Ghosts of Ascalon and the lore around it. I thought it would be really neat to play as a character that is an Ascalonian Necromancer who managed to retain her free will, much like Bria, perhaps insofar as to make my character Bria's sister. Unable to pass on, Margoux Fournier wanders the earth trying to find a way to free her friends and loved ones from the foefire.
I have three questions/problems with making this character.
1. I have never played the original Guild Wars. How much would this be a problem? I've read the "Ghosts of Ascalon" book and have read up on lore. I thought about perhaps making it that since my character, Margoux, has been wandering the earth for three hundred years that her memory of her life is foggy.
2. How to telegraph my character's appearance and name to communicate that she is an Ascalonian ghost? I've looked for something to make my character look transparent, to no avail. I've thought about stacking Winter's Heart Infusion and Ghost Infusion on top of each other, would that work?
3. Does this character break lore at all? I think she might stretch it a little bit, but perhaps in an acceptable way? Margoux was a scholar in life, as well as a necromancer and estranged sibling of Bria. Plus, Margoux's powers were weakened, Whether from resisting or from the Foefire itself she can no longer remember.
