Quote from: Vell on August 30, 2013, 06:58:39 pmName: Alfred BlackwoodGender: MaleRace: humanAge: 25Class: WarriorPhysical Appearance: A man who is only slightly taller than average, Alfred Blackwood carries himself with a confident stride. Thick shoulders and powerful arms crossed with old scars and new ones match his strong legs. Still, his strong face and slightly wavy golden hair match his dark eyes and sun-darkened complexion to the point that he may appear moderately attractive. Background / Profession : Alfred claims to have been a nobleman in his younger years - before his twelfth year, he claims, when he and his family were put out as exiles for the petty schemes of an opposing family - but there is little to prove this as nobody can match his claimed family name to any noble house. Instead, his comfortably deadly confidence and the ease with which he holds sword and spear tell a lifelong tale of bloodshed. Personality: A cunning intelligence is hidden under his gruff exterior. While he is warm and kind to those he is able, those who speak to Alfred Blackwood for any length of time become aware of the suspicion cut into his bones.Unique Talent: Alfred has a knack for reading political currents he claims comes from the teaching he received as a child of nobility.Other: He is actually just a lowborn man who became a mercenary to make ends meet and realised that politics was as a game.

Quote from: SBR* on August 31, 2013, 09:54:51 amSpoiler: ShowHideName: AzimuthGender: MaleRace: ElfAge: 37Class: BattlemagePhysical Appearance: It is clear that Azimuth is not used to strenuous, outdoor physical activites; he is not particularly muscled, has a little bit of fat and his skin is rather light, though not pale. Apart from that, he looks like a regular elf, with pointy ears, a long face and blue eyes. However, unlike many elves, he is rather tall, even for human standards. The clothes he wears are pretty plain and not exceptionally interesting, as he wears the characteristic blue robe of the Tower of Magi. He also wears a ring with a red unidentified gem, which is the only remnant he has of his parents.Background/Profession: Having been abandoned by his parents in the forest when he was still a baby, carrying only a ring with a red gem, this foundling was found by a group of magicians from the Tower of Magi. There, he was raised as a magician. He was named Azimuth, for it was customary for younglings found by the magicians of the Tower to be named given tems which found their origins in scientific terminology. Not having all too much to do, he heavily focused on his studies of natural sciences and magic. He's fully aware of the negative impact the magic has on his body, but as he was born and raised in the Tower of Magi, he doesn't really know better than this life. Besides, he sees the Tower as his home and the inhabitants as his family. He wouldn't have it any other way. Also, he secretly hopes his magical endeavours will eventually somehow lead him to his biological parents. He got this belief at a very young age, though he doesn't know where it came from, and has never since shared it with anyone, feeling it might ruin what he has come to see as a prophecy.Though he is still young according to elfern standards, he has spend every year of his life studying hard. It's difficult work, but he doesn't mind, as he actually enjoys studying. In fact, he hardly ever leaves the Tower and has never traveled far from it, for the farther he traveled, the more homesick he got and the badlier he wanted to return to the certainty of his studies. That's why his magical capabilities are above standard for someone his age, although they are very minor compared to those of some of the elderly mages living in the Tower of Magi. Due to his rapid learning, his friends gave him the nickname Zenith a long time ago, for he used to rise above most of them, although by now he has made new ones far more powerful than himself. Nobody except for his best friend is still aware of this old nickname and even he seems to have forgotten about it. Lately he decided to spend some of his spare time on training in swordmanship, for he did not want to fully rely on magic in case something unforeseeable happened. Although he has slowly been improving, he's still not capable of defeating even the weakest goblin without the help of his magic. This partially has to do with the negative impact the magic has on his body, as well as his lack of natural gracefulness and talent for swordfighting.Personality: Azimuth likes to think a lot. This helps him with his studies, but is also his biggest downfall. He tends to drift away, even at times when he has to pay attention, and he tends to overcomplicate and -analyze things. Apart from that, he is what some people like to call "a little selfish". It's not that he doesn't care about other people or that he ruins the environment he lives in, but he doesn't make an all too active attempt to improve it either. That being said, he would not intentionally hurt anyone or get in anyone's way, especially when it concerns a friend. He is aware of this slight selfishness, but thinks it wouldn't be so bad if people could take care of themselves. He thinks this may be caused by his being alone often, not having any family apart from his fosters, despite his seeing the inhabitans of the Tower as family members, but believes he may have been overanalyzing that as well. Also, having been raised amidst people from all races, he doesn't have any prejudice against any of them and is not burdened by resentment of them. The Tower of Magi, its inhabitants and the red ring he was found with are the things he holds most dear to him and he would risk anything to protects those, even his life, as those are the only certainties he has about his otherwise uncertain past. He has trouble dealing with this uncertainty and often resorts to the sureness of his studies to take his mind off things.Unique talent: Having studied his entire life, he knows a lot about the world he lives in; from the laws even nature has to abide to what kind of creatures live in this world, athough he's mainly interested in their intelligence, lifestyles abd how to defeat those creatures in combat rather than how their biology works. He's often applauded due to his broad spectrum of interests. Also, in order to help him with his swordfighting, he has learned how to enchant his weapons, a skill only few are interested in learning, for magicians generally prefer to fight with only their magic rather than physical weapons.Other: This character actually resembles myself in various ways - with a few exceptions of course; for instance, I was raised by my biological parents, unlike Azimuth. Some personality traits were made up as well in order to fit the backstory. As for his name, refer to this picture for its meaningAlso, as is clearly visible on the picture, the zenith is the point in the sky directly above your head, thus higher than any other point.I added a few snippets of information to the tekst, WR, so feel free to skim through the tekst again.Get hype.

Quote from: Dreaming Sun on September 01, 2013, 05:14:27 amI hope this works out fine... Though now I'm unsure if Elven culture works this way D:Spoiler: ShowHideName: Sofia WintersGender: FemaleRace: ElfAge: 33Class: MagePhysical Appearance: Sofia's black hair contrasts with her pale skin and blue, creating a striking face that presents all manner of emotions upon it. Her hair is usually let out and as long as her shoulders, but occasionally held towards one side by means of a navy ribbon. Around her neck is a clasp with the insignia of House Winters - an owl on a tree, eyes open even in the light blue of a midday sky - that holds in place the traditional blue robe of the Tower of Magi. Her shirt is a plan white, over leggings that are died a pitch black. Her feet are covered in simple black shoes, and on her right hand is a small silver ring adorned with a small sapphire.When outside the safety of the tower, a sheathe on her left hip holds House Winter's ancestral sword, Azura. The weapon is single edged and slightly curved, tapering into a tip about two and a half foot from the crossguard. The crossguard is coated in a deep blue enamel, the same colour as the sapphire that makes the blade's pommel. The underside of the crossguard has the weapon's name engraved twice, while its grip is made of simple, light blue dyed cloth. Its sheathe is a similar light blue, with a cross being formed on either side with suspicious navy ribbons.Background/Profession: The firstborn of House Winters life was set from birth. A home and a bed and a family. Her own private tutoring by some of the greatest elven sages on the land's histories and studies on some playwright's greatest tragedies. How to keep a household and how to manage their economic affairs. Battle tactics. Battle skills. Art, surgery, science, and first aid. The magic to bend the world to the whim of House Winters. The education to lead the family to a prosperous future.But as she aged, it was apparent that much of the work was for naught. Although House Winters had invested a small fortune of time and money on the education of their daughter, and young Sofia seemed to have the will to push herself, those around her would come to realise she had no internal talent. Her swordfighting was fair, she had a flair for music, and could recite the tactics of some of the world's most decisive battles, but for all purposes Sofia was not one to lead. No one could see a flourishing House Winters underneath Miss Sofia. Fortunately, they did not need to, for a brother to Sofia was born and, realising her own inadequacy, renounced her birthright of House Winters. She would learn and grow. Marry into another house, as a woman would otherwise be expected to do.Still finding the supplied education inadequate, Sofia found herself at the Tower of Magi. Perhaps there, she thought, she would learn better there...Personality: Sofia is a young woman with an unbreakable will. She will try and try and try until she succeeds with whatever it is she does. A smile is always printed on her face, and the self-confidence it gives her radiates out to all who know her. She is kind and outgoing, but is somewhat suspicious around large groups of people and those she find too forward towards her. And yet, despite this, sometimes she would find her confidence faltering and those around her unhelpful. Sometimes, the only company she needs or wants is the company of herself.Unique Talent: A keen tactical mind. Sofia can think fast and understands how to undermine a foe in battle, and has a theoretical understanding for larger strategy. However, oftentimes Sofia finds herself without sufficient strength and speed to execute her plans.Other: Although a student of the Tower of Magi for a year, Sofia has trouble casting the most basic of spells. It doesn't mean she won't try, however.
