It should come as no surprise that I make my own luck, and in a wager, I won Par Impar, a world class casino resort in the Caribbean. With our many attractions, including our aquariums, snorkeling, and miles of white sandy beaches, people come here to relax, rejuvenate, and see if the wheel of fortune spins in their favor. We’re a favorite resort of those on private yachts and many a mogul will dock in our harbor.
Private compound at Par Impar along with my residence at the Olympus Administration Building, Olympus Complex, Greece.
Tyche is known to grant favor or not on a whim and is often described as being fickle. Life is but a game, so it’s important to know the rules. She enjoys the chase and excitement that mortals provide, the way they fling themselves through their daily lives and rewards boldness and courage, the kind of firm determination that might be like a writer working hard on the next novel or an entrepreneur taking a bold move in a crowded market.
She finds love and romance to be too unpredictable in this modern age, the “rules” of courtship not well established and all too up to personal interpretation. So she keeps her relationships strictly business, and would much rather be the one to spin the wheel of fate rather than be spun.
She spends most of her time at her Caribbean resort. Enough excitement finds her there that she sees little value in traveling, but she’s also been known to show up at horse races or other big sporting events. She blends in well with the surroundings, so it’s quite possible you never know that Lady Luck is peering over your shoulder, ready for your next move.
Likes: Gambling, Horse Races, Sporting Contests, Boldness, Directness, Courage, Determination
Dislikes: Ambiguity, Deceit, Cheating, Breaking The Rules
Immortality – Tyche is technically immortal. She is immune to the effects of aging, cannot die by any conventional means, and is immune to all known mortal diseases and infections.
Babble-speak – Tyche can communicate in all languages and dialects.
Telekinesis – Tyche can move small objects, up to the size of a small suitcase, in visible range without physically touching them.
Telepathy – Tyche can influence thoughts and emotions to create or take away luck. She also uses this to make herself relatively invisible so people don’t notice she’s there or think she’s not there.
Normal Daily Wear: She prefers slacks these days and when walking around her resort can often be seen in a dressy jacket, sleeveless blouse and shorts with sandals. She usually wears jeweled bracelets and earrings that are shaped like gold dice or horseshoes.
Alternative Dress Wear: N/A
Golden Dice bag: She has a gold velvet bag that contains all the usual props of gambling like dice, cards, chips and a roulette ball. She’ll use these to entertain her exclusive guests or perhaps for an impromptu turn at the roulette wheel or card table.
Introduction written by Mary Kit Calesto
Welcome, welcome to Par Impar, where it doesn’t matter if you came on a cruise ship or on your own private yacht. We’re all subject to the whims of fate, and I should know, for it’s rumored that I won this beautiful island casino on a wager. A wise one, I assure you, though I’ll never tell the story.
If you’d like to get down to business, you’ll find our slots are loose, our dealers darling, and our roulette wheel more than ready to land on red or black. Prefer a little pari mutuel wagering? We have simulcasts from some of the world’s best race tracks, or perhaps sports betting is more your game. I prefer the ponies to the footballers myself, but everyone loves something and is willing to bet on anything.
When you’re done gambling or out of money, don’t worry; the house is ever generous. Stroll along our pristine beaches or through our grotto aquarium and beautiful displays. You’ll find your room comfortable with soft linens and only the finest amenities for my guests. When you awake refreshed and ready to try your luck again, our games will await you. Or, perhaps you never go to bed at all. We are here whenever you want to try your luck.
I assure you if you came here as a part of your business trip that my staff is discreet and won’t tell if you spend the day at the beach instead. We cater to C-level executives and the worker alike, and ensure that you’re treated like the royalty you are.
You see, some may call me fickle, but I love mortals. You’re so delightful and your boldness and courage is unmatched, except perhaps by that of a big cat chasing prey across the savanna. I love how you live in the moment and how you apply yourself so fully to your pursuits.
So here, take a pair of dice on the house. Let me kiss them for you for luck. But remember, any luck you gain or lose is wholly yours. After all, we’re all subject to the whims of the Fates, am I right?
