Joaquim Flannigan is an Okagnoma Elf Bard played initially by Coestar and then Rob in The Tower of Ultimate Wizardry: Chapter One. Joaquim Flannigan is a member of the bard band Brothers Flannigan along with Buford Flannigan and Reesi Gandolin and was one of five classmates who went to climb the Tower of Ultimate Wizardry.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Joaquim is a relatively shorter Elf who has long hair and a Van Dyke beard. He wears a beanie cap loosely over his head and a suit.

Personality[edit]

Joaquim is a very laid back Elf, being very calm and collected initially. However after going through several flights of floors Joaquim became very exhausted, often telling the group that he was going to leave, much to their dismay. It was even furthered when he learned of the death of Reesi, becoming depressed and angry towards Rhed.

Joaquim also has shown to have some underlying issues about his nature of being adopted. He has even considered out loud that he might be a Barringster as he never met his own family.

Relationships[edit]

Joaquim holds his strongest relationships with his band members Buford Flannigan and Reesi Gandolin. He regards Buford like a brother, putting him and the band before anything and willing to go with Buford on most decisions. He is oblivious to the secret relationship between Buford and Reesi, however, and was visibly confused when he was apart of the bonding. With Reesi, he appears to still care about her deeply, being extremely depressed following her death. When Joaquim was suffering under the effects of King Leomaris' floor of the Tower of Ultimate Wizardry, he forgot that Reesi broke up with him, initially believing her to be his wife, but was talked out of it by the group.

Joaquim seems to be indifferent to Trandon Barringster's actions and antics, often simply going with them and believing Trandon's excessive lies. However, Joaquim feels that Rhedmun has wronged him dealing by keeping the "truth" of Reesi's death by Dragon ingestion away from him.

History[edit]

Background[edit]

Joaquim Flannigan was orphaned in the city of Okagnoma and raised by Okagnoma Gnomes who taught him to be very intelligent. Joaquim soon left the city of Okagnoma and met with Buford Flannigan, and together they formed the band known as Brothers Flannigan and traveled from bar to bar, tavern to tavern, expanding their music. However, they chose to initially do so non-profit, living off of several other people and other free room and board. Eventually they landed in a college where they met Trandon Barringster, Rhedmun Kriel and their future bandmate Reesi Gandolin. Joaquim and Reesi eventually date for a time, but parted ways on good terms.

Joaquim joined his bandmates and former classmates on a journey to Climb the tower of Ultimate Wizardry with the initial goal to gain a Battle of the Bards VIP Entry form, but also to look for a new place to crash for a while.

The Tower of Ultimate Wizardry: Chapter One[edit]

Joaquim and the group meet at the gate to the Tower of Ultimate Wizardry, waiting on Reesi Gandolin to join up with them. Reesi joins up with them, which causes some slight shock to Joaquim, who did not know she was coming.

After some talking about why they wanted to climb the tower, they begin their adventure into the Tower. They enter the lobby and met with a sales man known as J.J. who tries to dissuade the group from climbing the Tower, but with success. J.J. then gives each of the group an enchanted item that shows a single hidden trap on a single floor. However, Trandon attempts to steal some of the decorative items, causing a ruckus as Trandon tries to get Rhedmun Kriel to steal them. However after finding the items to be completely useless, the begin to ascend to the first floor.

Unfortunately, Joaquim did not enter the portal, instead went back to grab some forgotten supplies. Right before he entered the portal he was rendered unconscious by Rhed's Altuni Cloth. This caused him to fight though the first two floors by himself. Joaquim managed to catch up with the rest of the group. After Trandon lies to Joaquim and says that Reesi abandoned the group, Joaquim then successfully jumps over the rocks and ascends to the next floor. Rhedmun follows Joaquim and goes through the portal. Trandon is then caught off guard by the appearance of four Pot Puppies, who then carries them to the portal. However, Trandon's insanity kicks in causing him to want to toss Buford out of the portal and towards the lava. Buford catches himself on some nearby rocks, but easily jumps through the portal along with Trandon, to the third floor.

On the Third floor, the group finds themselves in a golden room with two Clockodiles. There they confront a lion statue called the Lionia Statue, who tells the group that the if they answer five questions, he will let them pass. The group answers the questions, but the lion statue simple disappears, leaving the group to try and figure out the way to open the door. They assume that the nearby Clockodiles have the key to the door inside of them, so the group begins to fight one of them. After not finding any key inside of the Clockodile, room begins to shake and seven levers appear on the wall, each with a difference animal or monster face. Buford very quickly pulled third lever, causing a loud growl but nothing else happened. Trandon then has one of his pot puppies, Anson, to choose. This time it was the fourth lever which had nothing but a wolf howl. After the levers harbor no answer, the group defeats the other Clockodile to find no key again. Joaquim, Buford and Trandon decided to descend to the Lobby to find the answer, leaving Rhed on floor 3. Once the guys return to the lobby, J.J. reveals that the key was hidden in Trandon's pocket the entire time, under his sunglasses. After working through the floors once more, the group uses the key and ascends to Floor 4.

The fourth floor is a beautiful room filled with books and colored pencils and clouds. There Trandon founds that he is missing a pot puppy, and descends down to find her, while the rest of the group continues to examine the room. Trandon returned back to the room, carrying a Dragon Egg stolen from Vlaurunga, to which Trandon used to solidify his lie about Reesi dying to a Dragon. This caused tension in the group between Joaquim and Rhed. After some small bonding, Trandon begins to quickly figure out the puzzle: simply draw a door. A portal opens up where Trandon drew, and the guys ascended to the fifth floor.

The fifth floor houses a very empty room. Joaquim first enters alone, finding what appears to be Reesi, they are then followed by the rest of the group. The "Reesi" walks in front of Rhed and turns into a Gnome Pirate. The thing then turns into a Pot Puppy, and by the order of the rest of the group, Beauford attempts to shoot it. The thing turns into a new variant of Reesi. Finding that shooting it wasn't solving the puzzle, the group believes that its time for Joaquim and Buford have to move on from the lost of their bandmate. However this too, is not the answer, and the Reesi transforms again this time based on Trandon's mind, turning into a giant Dragon. Finding that it transforms into anything they think about, they begin to think about a portal to the next floor, solving the answer to the floor.

The group appears in the sixth floor into a room that they cannot see at all. Each member of the group begins trying to figure out what is happening while their vision is obscured, except Trandon, who had brought sunglasses. Trandon attempts to summon Buford close to the rest of the group activating some nearby traps, causing his Blunderbuss to be chopped, sawing it off. Eventually Rhed finds a switch and turns on the lights, showing the room filled to the brim of traps. The group begins to disable the traps and save some more Pot Puppies in order to solve the puzzle. Eventually all of the traps turned themselves off, and the group finds buttons in the corners of the room. Finding the buttons, the group presses them simultaneously, opening the portal to the next floor.

On the seventh floor, the group are in seats around a large round table, with a mysterious elf. This elf introduces itself as King Leomaris and begins offering the group a way to better their lives,telling them that they were at the top of the tower. They notice as they get up from the chairs they feel extremely happy and free, up until they sit back down into the chairs. Eventually the group upsets the King, causing him to reveal that this was a projection and open up a red portal to unknown destination. After agreeing to leave Joaquim to listen to the King's stories, he creates a portal to the next floor. Trandon then plans to teleport Joaquim secretly via Mark of Summoning, however it fails. However the King turns to ash for an unknown reason, and the two flee to the next floor.

On Floor 8, they find a room covered in green pipes coating the entire room. However, Joaquim appears to be very different, with now much older with heavy wrinkles and white hair. This causes the group to notice that they all appear older due to the effects of the last floor. Joaquim, suffering from the effects more so than the others, passes out in the middle of the floor. They then decide that maybe putting Joaquim down a pipe will fix him, however this fails to produce any visible results (leading the group to believe that they might have killed Joaquim). After investigating the pipes, they fail to find anything different between them. Eventually they hear Joaquim, now back to his senses, screaming up through the pipes, appearing in a newly reset sixth floor. The group then discusses on how to get Joaquim back to the current floor, but after several minutes of conversation, they decide to use Rhed's Pot Puppies as way points for Joaquim, by dropping parts of the deceased puppies. However, they find out that all of the pipes are connected, save for the one pipe Joaquim fell down, which had an alternative color. After a heavy argument between Rhed and Trandon, Rhed decided to jump down pipe himself, which causes him to be multiplied into three versions of himself. Eventually Joaquim, in an attempt to leave the Tower, gets teleported back to Floor 8, and convinces the group to go back down the pipe to floor six. Now back down, they have to solve the floor and save three new Pot Puppies. After solving that floor again, then ascend to the seventh floor (this time everyone immediately rises from their seat, which in turn, turns the projection of King Leomaris to dust). After ascending to floor 8, they then pull a Hail Mary and tap their shoes, which allows them to go UP a floor this time.

On floor 9, the group find themselves on a chess board and are spoken to by the Great Pot Puppy Master Douglas Oggo, or Pot Pupper Doggo for short. Doggo then explains that he designed this floor as a chess game using pot puppies as pieces. Through the use of Lascene, the group survives the fight with eight Pot Puppies left, squarely defeating Doggo at his game, and enter the portal to the ten

The tenth floor, a floor filled with a multicolored tiled floor and the wizard Coober. There Coober reveals that he is lost in the tower, and asks to join the group. The guys agree, and Coober says he has a quiz for them, to which Buford very much signs the group up. At the end of the quiz, Trandon had 1 points, Buford had 1 points, and Rhed had 3 points. This gave Rhed the first place price of a Legendary item, Trandon rolled for second place and a new Tambok Ticket, and Buford with third place. Coober challenges the party to a battle, but Buford initiates Charm to bypass Coober, allowing the group ascend to the Eleventh Floor.

Fate[edit]

On the Eleventh Floor, the group finds a rest area. The group decides to recuperate for a spell before continuing on through the tower another day.

Trivia[edit]

  • Joaquim was played by Rob after Coe's internet experienced heavy trouble.
    • Joaquim is the second character of Coe's to be played by Rob, the first being Captain Merci.
  • Coe's "Legendary Streak" that started in Okagnoma Guild Hall was broken with Joaquim, however this was also the first character to which Coe did not roll for his own Legendary, so it may be argued that the streak can still continue.
    • This is also supported by how this campaign is one of many, so Coe can still have the legendary for his character.
  • Joaquim is the Portuguese form of the Hebrew Bibical name Jehoiachin, which means "established by Yahweh." Flannigan is an Irish surname that comes from O'Flannagain, meaning "Son of Flann," or rather "Son of Reddish/Ruddy".
    • However, the etymology does not appear to be the bases for Joaquim Flannigan's character. Rather, the Flannigan surname was created by Coe and Justin during one of Coe's StreamADay for their in game names on Steam.
