Yashonk is now complete. I actually went with a Bard approach, more shaman-like to me.

EDIT: Application withdrawn. Character was fun to write, but probably not fun to play. If I get a new bug in my bonnet I'll write another.

Nope because it’s going to take me time to get through them all.

Introduction
left-aligned image
Asteria Majere
Race: Silvanesti Half-Elf
Class: Druid (Circle of Stars)
Alignment: Neutral Good
Theme: Fire, Light, Healing and Knowledge
Home plane: Krynn (Dragonlance)
Background: Haunted One
Asteria is the only daughter of the infamous wizard Raistlin Majere. Living in the shadow of such a legacy has taken its toll and shaped the person she is, for better or worse.

Personality Trait:
My mother taught me a sense of duty. I strive to uphold it, even when the odds are against me.
Personality Trait:
I take great pains to appear as virtuous as possible. I always look my best and follow the latest fashions.
Personal Ideal:
Beauty. I have to look for the splendor in life. What is beautiful points us beyond itself toward what is true. (Good)
Personal Bond:
There is evil in me, I can feel it. It must never be set free.
Personal Flaw:
I’m convinced of the significance of my destiny, and secretively believe I am better than everyone else.
DescriptionAppearance:
Asteria is a petite half-elf maiden with light skin and platinum hair. Her bright blue eyes seem to stare through space. The pretty half-elf speaks in an sweet voice. She is always well groomed and clean, she smells like flowers and marjoram. She loves jewelry and trinkets preferring to wear silver.

Her clothing and armor is colorful without being too bright in shades of blue and purple. Asteria carries a polished wooden staff with a round crystal at the top. On her left arm is a heavy leather glove and bracer set with a glass disk depicting the constellations. She casts her magic through these two foci as the stars expand around her and shift about to form her spells. Most of her effects come in the form of radiant glowing starlight.

Personality:
Asteria is a brilliant young girl but she is afraid of what she might become. As a result she lacks the confidence and discipline to live up to her full potential. Given her heritage that may not be a bad thing.

The girl has all the exuberance of youth, and the naivety that goes along with it. Outwardly she shows the world an optimistic and charming young woman in hopes of being accepted, However she secretly likes that others fear her. Asteria is used to being the center of attention and can get jealous when she has to share the starlight.

Her mother's influence has taught her patience and an uncanny ability in foresight. She is highly perceptive and always aware of her surroundings. Asteria has her father's passion for magic and desire for power however and can be condescending at times.

BackgroundHistory:
Since her childhood Asteria has had to deal with a certain degree of attention and expectation. Some assume she will be a great mage others worry about her taking a darker path. Of course there are those that simply want to gawk and whisper as well. Though she has learned to keep her identity relatively quiet it is not exactly a secret who her father is. Although she has never met her infamous patriarch she has met many of his companions. Her "Ants and Uncles" as she calls them and they have helped form the young woman she is today. Her mother has done well to teach her virtue for the most part and she is still working on humility.

As a youngster she did indeed show great promise particularly in matters of magic. Her mother taught her to be a star-seer, part fortune teller part astronomer. Over the years Asteria has become quite adept at her art even petitioning for admittance at the Tower of High Sorcery. She was denied however because of her age and inexperience. Undaunted she continued to study her craft. Recently she has been a bit more restless as her destiny seems to be calling her for adventure.

I will be away on holiday from 15th July to 28th July. Although I might get access to post in that time period I wouldn't count on it so I'll be aiming to complete outstanding reviews before I go. Selections will be made soon after I return.

I am very interested in this, as ancient Egypt, Egyptology, the pyramids, etc., are all a fascinating subject that I have spent some of my free time reading up on throughout my life. It's a period in our own history that is still largely a mystery, and I feel we've only scratched the surface of understanding.

With that said, I will be putting forth an application in the coming few days, hopefully before you head off on holiday. But one question I have up front is in regards to the secrets that you are asking for (one we know, one we don't). Can you expand on what you mean here? Are you talking about meta-plot secrets, or things in general? Secrets about Ravenloft, or where we are from? I have an idea on a secret that my character wouldn't know, but I'd like clarification from you on the overall secrets thing before I divert too much of my energy into fleshing that out.

Thank you in advance for answering the question! I shall start working on the mechanics right now!

EDIT: Another question! Are custom Backgrounds allowed? I like the Investigator Background from Van Richten's, but for the concept I have going on, neither the Disguise Kit or the Thieves' Tools work. Could I swap those out with Alchemist Supplies and Forgery Kit?
