Familiar: Anguselus the Treasure Chest Tortoise
Tulia spends more time extolling the virtues of the College of Durand than she does anywhere else, including class. She burns inside with the nobility, virtue and chivalry of the collegiate ideal, and takes it upon herself to be a beacon of moral instruction. As a result, despite how bright she is, she rarely lives up to her potential in her studies. However, Tulia does perform well on her Negation exams almost without fail. All this accomplishment makes up for her complete lack of skills as a conversationalist.
Ability: College Pride
Tulia Faspalla figured out very early in her time at Academagia that Durand College was good for her, and that it therefore behooved her to be good to it. She goes out of her way to bring positive attention to Durand - to celebrate its virtues and to trumpet its history - and though it occasionally makes her difficult to be around, it really does bring Merit to the college she loves, and Expands her own Passion (by 1 Skill Step) at the same time.
Going to Tulia for Great Advice results in the both of you gaining a 1 point Increase to Confidence for about a week. If your conversation is really deep (i.e., if you succeed at a difficult Insight/Conversation Roll vs 11), you'll also receive a lasting 1 point loss of Stress.
Tulia’s time in the world and on the streets of Alfi have given her the kind of worldly perspective that isn’t usually expected from girls her age; when she sits down for a heart-to-heart with one of her friends, both of them come away feeling better about things than before.
