Europa’s renowned detective and investigator extraordinareHugo, an eccentric fellow from Montagne, is a devoted christian who has aspired to be an investigator as early as the age of 10 when his mother had given him his first magnifying glass invented specifically for him. Prior to pursing a career in investigation, Hugo had dreamed of being a doctor until his mother had quickly shot his dream down, claiming that his chosen career path was “beneath him” for he was destined for greatness. As his mother prophesied, he became the greatest detective in all of Euros. In memory of his deceased mother, he carries a tiny portrait of her in his pocket watch.
Hugo de la plume is a stumpy, distinguished, well-dressed man above the age of 30 with a curly mustache. A decorative feather protruding from his rounded hat is a family heirloom and the “la Plume” insignia. While working on a murder case in Avalon, detective Hugo was approached by a message sent by Elena, the Marquesa of Castille, requesting Hugo’s expertise to venture to the new World and retrieve her missing daughter.
The detective was reluctant at first but once promised riches, delicacies, exquisite women and most importantly, the reputation as the greatest investigator in the world, it was an offer he couldn’t refuse.
