Post your characters here. All the usual stuff, name, age, description, personality etc. No god-moding, no supernatural beings, the occasional wise woman or wizard is okay but in this world they are not common.3/22/2009 #1
Name: Emara Hayfeather
Physical Appearance: She has brown curly hair which is constantly trying to break out of the ribbon tying it behind her deeply tanned head. She has light grey eyes. Emara usually wears tight black leggings over a long green frock with a light shirt underneath. She is considered a bit exotic looking, even by her own people.
Personality: She is always smiling and is an unabashed optimist, which can get annoying at times. She is a determined and hard worker. She is comfortable in crowds, but awkward around men. She is usually unafraid to voice her opinion. Wants to please, yet yearns for excitement. Emara has trouble making friends, but once she does, she is loyal to a fault.
Occupation: None as of yet. Is travelling to Sontispont.
Background: She lived with a traveling caravan with her parents and siblings until she was 10. Then the caravan was attacked by prejudiced towns folk who claimed that the caravan had stolen from the town. It was burnt to the ground, and Emara doesn't know if there were any other survivers. She has been traveling ever since searching for her family. Just recently she gave up her quest and decided to settle down. She refuses to let herself think about her past and instead attempts to look only to the future. She was instilled with her optimism by her father. He also taught her to read and speak both Besijelain and Farielian. She can write in only Besijelain, but she can sign her name in Farielian as well. She was taught to cook by her mother. Her oldest brother taught her the traditional dances of their people. She knows the basic skills of survival.
I hope the changes are ok. ^^'3/22/2009 #2
Yep, that's fine except for a few minor things. 1) Besijel is no longer so travelling to Sontispont mightn't be the greatset idea as the Haeleans persecute them severly (one of the reasons so many escaped to what was then Fariel)-just an thought, you don't have to change it. 2) Languages. The current language of Anrien is a strange mix of Farielian and Bashraanian but most people can speak both languages. Besijelian has almost all but died out so I like the use of it with your character. 3) would you also be able to give a few details of where she grew up, I'm slightly confused at the moment.
Um, OK. Lets not go to Sontispont. Is there is another major city she could be traveling to? As for languages... do I have to change something? Cause she can speak Anrien and Besijelian if that's what you meant. Whatever is fine with me! ^_^
Ok, as for where she grew up:
She grew up on a traveling caravan. It moved around a lot so she never had a specific hometown. She was born somewhere near the sea, and the caravan stuck mostly to the western side of the country, beacuse it was their homeland, though they were sometimes subject to persecution. Her caravan was eventually attacked for this very reason, and she is the only known survior. (may be others... idk.) She traveled around a lot after that, blah blah blah. If you want more on caravan life I can give you that too. Just say the word. ^_
Hope this helped!3/23/2009 #4
Name: Eliti Opri
Height: 5' 7"
Physical Appearance: Pale skinned, but very large. She looks like the average mother-type. Voluptuous with a warm glow around her. She usually wears a long brown apron over a coarse white dress with puffy sleeves.
Occupation: She runs an Inn, and a brothel as a side venture. She also works undercover for the army, keeping an eye out for spies, information. She passes along coded messages as well.
Personality: She acts matronly towards paying customers, and girls she is trying to lure into her service. However, she is cold and calculating in actuality. She is strict with 'her girls' and is unafraid to voice her opinion. She is loud and boisterous always. She looks at life as one big game, and the goal is to get rich and stay alive. She has no known family. Usually has ulterior motives. She likes having control over her own life, and when she doesn't she looks endlessly for a way to wriggle free.
Race: Anrien - slightly mixed descent
Weapon: Anything she can lift and throw.
Background: She was raised by a poor single mother in Melean. They opened the inn together, and she took care of her mother until she died. Opened the brothel illegally. Was approached shortly after by a member of the military, and agreed to help them on the condition she could keep her brothel, and they agreed. This arrangement still stands.
I don't know why, but this character just seemed to pop into my head and I kinda liked her. *shrugs* I hope she's ok too! ^^"3/23/2009 . Edited 4/08/2009 #5
Sounds good. One issue (i'm sorry i'm so picky!) There is no Fariel or Bashraan anymore, only Anrien. To have someone purely of one race or the other is unusual but not impossible. If she is Farielian without any Bashraanian blood that' fine, just say so. Thanks. You may start RPing as soon as you want but just let me know if you would like some more topics.3/23/2009 #6
Okay, here are my characters...

Weapons: Can see the future, telekinesis, dagger, sword
Background: Found so close to death by Fariel's army and doesn't remember a thing; they believe she is an enemy but force her to swear her loyalty.4/23/2009 #8
Welcome! Usually the only race is human, others are very rare and keep themselves hidden so having one or two such characters will make it more interessting.4/24/2009 #9
Hey could Renez and Eriden be sisters but they were different when they were younger so they dont recognize eachother...? Just an idea, which would explain why she was found so close to death...?9/25/2009 #10
Possibly, but they would have to be half-sisters or something because Eriden is completely human. Prehaps Eriden's father (a shady character at the best of times) could have sexually abused Renez's mother and she became pregnant which would explian them not knowing eachotehr if they grew up apart. We would just have to find a way for them to find out. Any ideas?9/26/2009 #11
Maybe Renez's telekinesis doesn't work on Eriden or something because mind reading within a family is impossible for some reason. (privacy within family??) Renez could know this and begin to suspect Eriden or something... idk, just a thought.9/27/2009 #12
Welcome back! We should probably continue this in the chat thread but for nnow it's fine here.
That's an interessting idea. Both are described as dark aired, blue-eyed and slim.9/27/2009 . Edited 9/27/2009 #13
That is an intiresting idea. What if they had the same mom but she gave Renez to someone so they didn't know eachother?9/29/2009 #14
So they had different fathers? Or Eriden is really a witch/elf but doesn't know?9/29/2009 #15
I dont know. just an idea... If you want..?9/30/2009 #16

Very interssting character
Name: Danyl Reen
Allegiance: Anrien (Fighting for the rebels under Gen. Natkim)
Personality: Energetic yet measured. He is a young man of determination and persistant optimism. He refuses to give into desperate situations and always strives for victory. Though noted as brave many have known him to be reckless, risking his life in impossible situations.
Danyl believes firmly in Anrien independence and does not wish it to join with the Empire( Hence joining with the rebels).
Appearance: 5'9 in height. Danyl has brown wavy hair and blue eyes which he is affectionatly mocked by his peers for his attractive looks only lend to a feeling for some that Danyl is not ready to lead and too inexperienced.
