Spheres Character 2
Markus Stormwolf
Character Details
Race:Human (Ulfen)Age:19Class:Skald (Storm Herald)Alignment:CGRole:Face, Melee, Buff, Battlefield Control, Utility
Physical DescriptionPersonality
Markus, a tall, imposing figure with a braided head and jawline colored a fiery red. To go with a lightning-shaped scar that runs along the right side of his brow to near the back of his scalp is a resting grim expression. With every beat of his heart, that scar of his ripples with light as if holding back a great storm. His eyes, otherwise betray this fear with their calm blue color and clearness. His skin is a soft pink, originally fair like crushed snow, perhaps sunburnt from exposure to nature. He is dressed in dark woolen clothes underneath a coat of knee-length coat of brigandine armor. Over his armor, he wears a mantle made of the hide of a grey wolf to ward away the wind or the cold. On his belt, he has two well-worn axes, with a short enough handle for throwing. Worn on a sling across his back is a greataxe, with simple Ulfen runes carved into the axehead, spelling out Markus's name. His left arm, with the sleeve of his shirt rolled up, bears the tattoo of Gozreh, the image of the deities' avatars of sea and sky touching upon his arm.Despite his looks, Markus is a sociable person, eager to hear tales, tall or grounded, of all persons in the land. With these stories learned, he in turn retells them at near every opportunity as there are few tales that he himself can tell without feeling guilty about embellishing his life. Markus himself, though something of a bard, wishes to make a great story of his own life. His favorite of all stories is a tale as old as the ages of the world, a mortal man against a beast of legend and the man coming on top. He enjoys monuments, epic narratives, the weight of steel in his hands, and the sound of storms. He dislikes cowardice, mind-altering magics, large cities and insects, mainly spiders.

Background
Born within the sprawling city of monuments, Magnimar, the young Markus grew up upon the tales of travelers and adventurers as the third son of a tavernkeep. It was only a bit later in his life that he learned there was to be little room for him to continue living with his family. He, as a star-struck youngster, didn't think much about his future. He got along with the neighborhood kids, frequently got into fights about mundane matters such as what the greatest hero-name was or if talking about what is the scariest monster. Sometimes these little things came to blows. It wasn't often that Markus had won any of these fights with much skill until much later, but he was the largest of all of his friends, and that had to count for something in the end.
A childhood of mutual bruisemaking and avoiding the scarier of the city residents later, Markus became a less impressionable teen. He still had a great love and respect for adventurers and storytellers, but by this time, his parents were pressing upon him the importance of making a life for himself. Underneath all of these lessons was the greater message, 'get out'. Markus was nearly being set up to learn to be the apprentice of the street's local, childless, smithy; however, with a chance encounter of a haggard, grey-cloaked man that could convincingly pass as a storybook wizard, Markus had a different destiny. This man, Markus's soon-to-be mentor, was something of a storyteller himself, by the title of skald. This man could do impressive things with his voice, not in the very least being turning a clear sky into a cloudy, rainy day all across the city. Though gifted with a strong arm, Markus wanted to learn how to be a magic man like this, rather than spending a life of study to throw a fireball or swinging a hammer at a smithy, both admirable professions that they might be. His mentor, though needing convincing to take an apprentice in the first place, taught Markus about the greatness of Gozreh and the beauties of nature and the passing of the seasons. His stories included tales of men with storms in their heart, yearning for freedom to be released, only to grow cold and bitter within the walls of civilized society. Those, he said, that could live in tune with nature, can release the tempest in their heart and soul through the voice, and change the world about them with great practice.
Markus, as one that aspired an adventuring life, followed this grey-bearded mentor into the countryside to learn his ways, though Markus never gave up the training of his natural Ulfen physique so he might one day slay a mighty beast and have songs sung about him. As an aspiring skald of nature, Markus was a poor woodsman and had to unlearn much of what civilization taught him, but with strength in arm, and a weapon in his hand, he could keep himself out of most trouble that his naivety put him into. It took several years, but the completion of his training allowed him to split the skies outside of Magnimar asunder. His voice booming like thunder in itself. The magic, first spent and used by a body and bloodline foreign to the influence of spellwork, formed a wound. Electricity coursed about his form during this first strong manipulation of weather, a strong bolt of lightning had burned by his right temple, forming a painful, burning scar that Markus has to this day. But despite the experience, he never surrendered the art that was passed onto him, for Markus was then a storm herald.
With power learned, his body tempered and his form garbed in equipment, Markus was ready to begin his epic tale. He ventured further into the wilds of Varisia that he had ever accomplished. Much to his chagrin, there were no great dragons to find lurking behind every stone, nor was some other beast of magical origin, not that he was ready for anything close to the level of a warg. After months of partial success in living off the land, he ventured back to the village of Sandpoint, to meet with others that were luckier and could draw to him a tale worthy of his dreams.

-sigh- I can't pass this up. It's too good of an opportunity...

Character Application
Application Complete!

left-aligned image
Human Form

Name: Darastrix'Rasvem (Darai) J'skar
Race: Half-Dragon (Green)
Class: Inquisitor (Spellbreaker)
Party Role(s): Melee, Buffing, Mage Killing
Alignment: CG
Physical Description: Darai is an alluring woman. A little on the tall side brushing up against 6 ft. but with flowing brown locks, an easy smile, warm chocolate eyes, and a nicely toned figure in the form-fitting leathers she wore. A rather humble color palate of browns and blues with splashes of silver for buttons or simple embroidery for a bit of flash. Perhaps, however, what was most off-putting was that this above-average woman carried a hefty two-handed sword on her back, and wore a suit of scale mail audible under her traveling cloak and clothing. Striding past she catches your eye and flashes a playful grin, fully aware of the looks she was getting, those golden eyes staring right into yours before turning away and continuing down the-

...Wait, gold?

Personality: Darai can come across as imposing upon first meeting, setting the weight of her stern gaze on one's brow and not letting up should the conversation go south. The greatsword is hardly for show though isn't always keen to draw it without a good reason to do so. Those that dig a little past her somewhat prickly exterior can find a surprising amount of empathy for those in need or dealing with trauma, even willing to share what knowledge she has of healing from her Father if possible. Such kindness can erupt into rage however, if it's trodden upon carelessly or if she witnesses the act that caused great harm in the first place. If her blade doesn't find you then her magicks certainly will. She seems to harbor a hate for users of the arcane in particular. Or at least those that flaunt or abuse such powers over those that don't have them. She's dangerous in a fight, sporting cutting wit in an argument, comfort during those dark times, and wants to find her own happiness in a world that left her parents comfortably rich, but took a part of their mind and soul in exchange.

Green Dragon Form


Background:
 


Role-play Example: Darai grumbled to herself as she strolled the relatively quiet streets of Sandpoint, chewing on a roasted chicken leg rather noisily. She had been advised by her Father this coastal town had seen a surge in monsters as of late but once she arrived there was nary any sign of a troll, orc, goblin, gnoll, or even Kua-Toa! There wasn't much work to be done aside from helping set up for a festival in a couple days. She had pitched in to help set up the bigger stuff, putting her dragonic strength to good use, and was finishing off her 'payment' as she walked the streets. She had finished with the juicy meat and crunched loudly into the bone, enjoying the flavor-soaked marrow as well. Much to the surprise and unease of those who witnessed this lovely young woman doing so. She would try to remain vigilant in the coming days, keeping eyes open as best she could as a concerned citizen. She knew she couldn't start checking carts coming and going without town guard permission.

She foresaw her days largely filled with training, and reading.

Character Sheet: Right here!

Traits/Drawback: Reactionary, Fate's Favored, Avarice, Scholar of the Ancients

I wouldn’t worry. Yes, there are a lot of applicants, but you only have a little over half the time left for new ones to come in.

I'll have the RP example for Naugrimm up this weekend. Except for the RP example, the application should otherwise be ready for review.

I'm not sure that's the kind of reassurance they're looking for!

There's one week left for people to bribe me with RPXP submit and finalize their applications. Poke me if I've missed any questions.
