PAPRIKA

OVERVIEW

High in the Huacaya Mountains, alpaca roam though inhospitable wilderness as their ancestors have since the dawn of time. The harsh, barren environment leaves little room for any pursuits other than raw survival.

But there is one among them who eschews their sober, serious attitude. Her name is Paprika, and she’s brimming with vigorous affection. Some say she aims to fill the world with love the land never had for her, but whatever her reasons, she feels compelled to share all she has and more, whether you’re willing or not.

Paprika is a basket case and a whole bag of tricks, tossing a variety of gifts and zipping around the stage faster than anyone is able to keep track of. Crushing embraces and surprising kisses make for some of her deadliest techniques. Once she decides you’re the love of her life, there can be no escape.

PLAYSTYLE: All-Rounder, tricky

ANCIENT HUACAYA

The Alpake of the Huacaya Mountains, or Alpacas as they are known more commonly, live as their ancestors have for thousands of years in the harsh conditions of The High Plains. They are pragmatic, rugged, sober, and serious, and have not changed one bit since a time not long after ungulates learned to control fire.

Dotted throughout this forsaken land of salted soil, cold wind, and withering rock lie ruins of civilizations long dead. There is little reason to journey into the mountains unless you’re an archaeologist, ghost hunter, or grave robber.
