>>>COMPLETE!Feedback very much appreciated!*<<<

Application
right-aligned image
Character Name: Rog-narag Black Bow
Race: Hobgoblin
Class: Mystic
Alignment: Lawful Neutral

Background: Outlander (Bounty Hunter)
2 Personality Traits: I once ran twenty-five miles without stopping to warn to my clan of an approaching enemy horde. I'd do it again if I had to. I'm driven by a sense of justice that is not shared by my own people.
Ideal: Justice. Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind.
Personal Bond: I owe my continued existence to my sister. She's probably dead, but I live the way I do in honor of her sacrifice, and her ideal of what I could be.
City Bond: The Yawning Portal is my new home and source of livelihood, where I can use my abilities to help those who have suffered injustice.
Flaw: I remember every insult I've received and nurse a silent resentment toward anyone who's ever wronged me.

Preferred Starting Season: Winter
Acquaintance: Yagra Stonefist. I found her and her crew on their way back to Waterdeep. Almost cost me my life, but despite her gruff words and manner, the half-orc saw beyond my race and decided I was... interesting. Been working with her ever since.

Appearance: Rog-narag ties his hair in a high topknot, and wears various leathers-and-bones for protection, making him seem more savage and wild than his more militaristic companions. He walks with bare feet, disturbing nary a leaf or twig when he's on the hunt. Tall and lanky, the warchief of Rog-narag's clan described him as weak; cowardly. Though he was almost a head taller than the hobgoblin leader and most of his kin, could hit a target at more than a hundred paces with uncanny precision with his longbow, and possessed a superb intellect for tactics and complex problem-solving, the hobgoblin was considered of lower status than his more martial cousins. And in the clan, status was everything. Compare to Rog's older sister Rakshas who was a champion of a fighter and a fierce leader, it was clear that he was an anomaly in his society. Rakshas was as red-skinned and muscled as the most powerful male, while Rog had a charcoally-red tinge, like that of old clay, and she was second only to the chief in both martial prowess and leadership ability. Still, Rog-narag was tolerated by his clan for his skill in hunting and tracking, as well as his relationship with Rakshas; he even received a black longbow made of strengthened yew wood in recognition of his contributions to his sister's success. Hence he was given the nickname, 'Black Bow'.

In Waterdeep he keeps his appearance and abilities shrouded in dark hooded cloaks, often seeing his "clients" in a shadowy nook of the tavern. They needed his skill, not his skin; and a little bit of theatrics impressed the gullible. Rog always got results, but some would not take kindly to the fact that he was of goblinoid descent.

Some good applications here, folks! Keep up the good work! Also, let me know if you want any critique/review of your character application, and whether or not it's in its final format.

Sadral, glad to hear it! I hope it lives up to your expectations!

Mostlymad, thanks for the backup link! I'll incorporate it into the main post for future applicants as well.

I am leaning towards Obaya Uday.

Is she Chultan or Turnami?

edit: nevermind, there is a stub in the forgotten realms wiki- she's from Chult.

Application
right-aligned image
Name: Almire Coding
Race: Glasya Tiefling
Class: Bard
Alignment: Neutral
Background: City Watch (flavor: Ex-City Watch)
Personality Traits
  1. I face problems head-on. A simple, direct solution is the best path to success.
  2. I have a crude sense of humor.
Ideal: Live and Let Live. Ideals aren't worth killing over or going to war for. (Neutral)
Bonds:
  1. Personal: With my job gone my family has abandoned me. I stay to find a way into their good grace once more.
  2. City: This has been my home, where I served the public. If only they would treat me like they did back then.
Flaw: I made a terrible mistake that cost many lives, and I would do anything to keep it from becoming public knowledge.
Preferred Starting Season: Winter
Acquaintance: "Threestrings" - I've often sought him out to test my abilities with a lute. Nothing brings in a crowd like dueling instruments. He often treats me like we're on good terms but then again, that might just be due to I've never beat him at a duel.


Have you played this adventure?: Negative!~


This should be good to go, let me know if I'm missing something.

right-aligned image

I am extremely slow to trust. Sometimes those who seem fairest have the most to hide.

Ideal: People. I’m loyal to my friends, not to any ideals, and everyone else can take a trip down the Styx for all I care.

2 Bonds:
Someone I loved died because of a mistake I made. That will never happen again.
Waterdeep is an opportunity to start over again, and not have to be reminded of my past.

Flaw: An innocent person is in prison for a crime that I committed. I’m okay with that.

Reese LeChance
right-aligned image

Character Name: Reese LeChance
Race: Human (Variant)
Class: Rogue
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral


Description: Reese is unremarkable by human standards. He has dark hair and eyes, a strong build from his time surviving on his own, and usually a clean-shaven face. He wears leather armor and a long cloak and hood for traveling. Two sword handles rise above his right shoulder and two hand crossbows sit holstered on either thigh.

Background: Outlander (Bounty Hunter)
Trait: I am always calm, no matter what the situation. I never raise my voice or let my emotions control me.
Trait: I place no stock in wealthy or well-mannered folk. Money and manners won’t save you from a hungry owlbear.
Ideal: Life is like the seasons, in constant change, and we must change with it.
Personal Bond: My honor is my life
City Bond: I’m trying to pay off an old debt I owe to a generous benefactor.
Flaw: Don’t expect me to save those who can’t save themselves. It is nature’s way that the strong thrive and the weak perish.

Preferred Starting Season: Winter
Acquaintance: Durnan, the proprietor of the Yawning Portal, has been Reese's friend and confidant with Waterdeep for years. With a firm pulse on the city, Durnan always knows who is offering the most lucrative contracts.

Character Name: Almarin Hawkwinter
Race: Human
Class: Paladin (intended Oath of Redemption)
Alignment: CG
Background: Waterdhavian Noble
Personality Traits:
1. Almarin lives to experience all that life has to offer. He is passionate, curious and more than willing to let himself be tempted. Since he is always searching for something new, he usually does not allow a bad habit to become a vice or addiction.
2. The young man has never experienced true loss or misfortune, the greatest tragedy being not to be invited to a party he would have loved to attend or being rejected by a beautiful woman he just met. This makes him see the world with a (pampered) child’s bright eyes, always cheerful and ready to joke.
Ideal: Almarin truly believes that the world, or at the very least Waterdeep, is a paradise for all - and if not it could become one. There is enough money in the city to allow everyone a life of pleasure and comfort. Peace and prosperity is the solution to all problems.
Bonds:
1. Almarin’s greatest love is the very city of Waterdeep. He would probably die of sorrow if he was ever forced to leave the city and is willing to go to very great lengths to protect the city and its people from those that seek to harm them.
2. The paladin’s relationship with the Vigilant Eyes of Helm is tenuous at best. There are many voices that ask that the young man be expelled from the holy order for neglecting his duties and dishonoring the god and his followers. Still either because he sees something in him or because of his family name, the leader of the order refuses to take such drastic measures. After all, Almarin’s devotion to Helm is -in his own way- sincere.
Flaw: The young man is naive of the ways of the world. Being innocent as a child, to encounter true sadness, as he is eventually bound to do, would either completely shatter him or turn him into another man.
Preferred Starting Season: Winter, being the season Almarin is least socially active.
Acquaintance: Durnan, proprietor of the Yawning Portal.
