A mage who is a consummate specialist in orc breeding, Balia has worked since she was young in the employ of the Lustlord. She is very absorbed in her research and doesn't show interest in politics or personal security for that matter. In some aspects, she has the same outlook in life as Qum D'umpe. She is the archetype of a distracted academic:
|“||Oh, it's... you. I remember you because you showed up between the first and the second rounds, while I was investigating orc mass conversion.||”|
Unfortunately, she no longer has a job with the Lustlord as he no longer finds her expertise necessary:
|“||Trouble? No, the Lustlord just believes I'm no longer necessary.||”|
And although her life isn't in danger, she can't imagine life without her research. So she decides to take up with another Incubus King who has need of her skills.
She shows little interest in any sexual shenanigans, even with her masters, but beware of the quiet waters. It's clear that her abilities will be a valued asset for the team, but will she able to give him something meaningful, or vice versa?
Balia's personality is that, as mentioned above, of a distracted academic. She tends to be rather air-headed when it comes to things that aren't orc breeding, and often she categorizes when she has last spoken to a person not by time or date, but by what reference material she was reading before and after their conversation. When she learns that she won't be needed in the service of the Lustlord as an orc breeder she becomes distressed and lost as it is all she has ever done with her life since she was young. She takes great joy in the various facets of orc breeding, and she shows the most emotion when Simon does various orc-related activities with her.
Due to her single-mindedness, her social skills are atrocious. She's unable to directly ask Yarra for a simple request, showing a great deal of anxiety when Simon tries to have her ask and she makes him do it instead.
She also shows a good of amorality dealing with others, not really understanding why forcing women into the orc breeding pits or showing no remorse to the loss of the Fancy Walker orc, is bad. She runs on very detached logic; if it helps orc breeding then it's good, if it hurts orc breeding then it's bad, if it doesn't affect orc breeding she couldn't care less.
Balia expects sex from her master as a matter of course, and is off-put when Simon refuses to have a sex-only relationship with her. She denies needing sex, but she's clearly disappointed. She does later agree to have a relationship as she needs a way to relieve the "distraction" that being horny brings . While not particularly loving, she shows the same laser focus she does to orc breeding to having sex. She does seem to miss Simon when he leaves, if only because she wants him nearby to satisfy her sexual needs.
Maximum affection is 100, at which you can have a conversation with the harem girl that will lock her affection there.
Balia's affection is mostly tied to how much you seem to care about her work and orc-related matters in general. She's rather... focused.
