    Oh, because I didn't mention it yet-- the rp will be starting in the Atian Empire. There is a town at the crossroads in the south of the Empire called Cale Cal. We will be starting out there.

    I have better pictures to come.

    Ylva Mallory

    PALADIN

    Race: Human
    Age: 28
    Gender: Female
    Alignment: Lawful Good
    • Personality
      Ylva is very duty bound, as well as godly. She chose to be a paladin, a path she knew she was to follow even as a toddler. Her biggest devotion is to the gods who granted her the holy power to be a Paladin. Her personality can be seen mostly as cold and collected, she has a soft spot for those in need. Perhaps it is in her nature as a Holy Woman, or maybe her own weakness. That being said, she can also be rather judgemental and harsh to those with beliefs that contradict her own. The same goes for those who act with evil intention. Criminals deserve no mercy, as everyone makes a choice.

      To those that she holds dear, she is loyal. That being said, she does have a family and will reject any sort of intimate advance towards her. She honestly doesn’t talk too much about her family, which most people don’t even know exist since she is always on a journey away from them. Those types of secrets are held for only the closest friends, as few as they may be.

      Above all, Ylva is devoted to her cause and is not afraid to do what is needed for what is right. ​
      History
      Ylva was adopted into a prestigious family as a very young child, young enough that she was accepted worldly as blood to royals. She never knew her biological family, nor cared to look into them. Even still, she had trouble adapting to her adopted family. Her only real connection was with her uncle. The same uncle that would eventually train her to become the Paladin of the present.

      In the time between being a recruit and being blessed by the gods, Ylva was promised to a Yarl. She followed the engagement out of pure duty, eventually having a child with the Yarl. She does not speak of her family, very few people even know their names.

      Since joining the High Order of Helm and becoming a Paladin, Ylva has fought in many wars and skirmishes for the Asorsian Military. She has also fought for smaller battles which she felt duty bound to help. While she is loyal her command, she will always follow her own path of light.

      Her latest and nearly fatal endeavor was one of the larger battles for the Asorsian military. She was left for dead amidst the battlefield a bloodied battlefield. While the details are blurred, Ylva was saved. Upon given this second chance, her life had also been given a new meaning and a new mission. While she follows blindly to the warning given, she is also (just as blindly) searching for her savior. ​

    Sorry for the silence. I've got 2 potentially 3 characters coming in soon and I'm slowly working through character storylines.

    I'm hoping to get the dice mechanics I want to use down so I can have Genak and Metallic to start picking out stats and skills.

    @CNJ25 so far I've only gotten 3 characters submitted to me, and have 2-3 potentially on the way. However, if one of them decides to not join I'll have one open slot.

    @ThreeHeartsAndThreeLions @Nyctibius @MajinKirbuu you guys still feeling interest? If not, totally fine.

    I'm absolutely interested.

    Just, fuck me whoa, this is going to be a completely new playing field I've never experienced before.

    I'm stoked.

    I'mma read into this in more detail tomorrow and make up a character and have my sheet for you guys to look at. I feel like I took a sip out of a Red Bull reading this. I'm so excited.

    Also: Sorry for the delay in inital response. Its been an oddly busy past two days. But fuck yeah. I'm down.

    Name: Fionnan O'Douds
    Race: (TBA!) (Still working on it, notable non-human features have been ommited until I solidify what his race is. )
    Gender: Male
    Age: Young, emotionally, and physically in the early 20's range. Although his actual age is yet to be determined.

    Personality: When you first meet him, he's very much a silent type, this is because he's focusing most of his mental energy on trying to figure you out. He's gauging you, to see how he can present himself to you in an appealing way. He wants to be someone's favorite, one way or another, whether he wants to admit it or not, this can lead to him being a bit of a suck up. He insists that he doesn't care what other people think, but his behavior says quite the opposite. Although, the downside of this is, he is very susceptible to taking part in picking on the underdog- in a, "Thank god that isn't me," kind of way. He's kind of a jerk, doesn't have many close friends at the moment, nothing is really holding him to any sort of commitment. He tends to surround himself with older people, seeing himself as more mature than his peers, though he couldn't be more wrong- not that he'd admit it.

    History: He had a few older siblings growing up, and each of those siblings had many friends, Fionnan, however, never really made friends of his own. He was always tagging along with one of his older brothers, and frankly, they were not kind to him. He wasn't old enough to get what they were doing, or old enough to take part in what looked like some serious fun! So, there he sat on the sidelines, 'keeping watch', feeling important, like he was doing something. "Go away, Fionnan," "Not right now, Fionnan," "You brought your little brother?" Common phrases he heard growing up. It got tiring, it got annoying, feeling left out all the time. He felt like he wasn't wanted around, and he began to act out because of it, sabotaging plenty of small scale heists for 'fun', for attention, while he got to watch his brothers scramble to make excuses for themselves. That kind of behavior eventually threw itself back in his face, when his brothers stopped talking to him all together. He was cut off from them, after all, Fionnan was the reason their oldest brother ended up serving time in prison. Why would they take him anywhere after that?

    With nothing really left to entertain himself, and a stockpile of coin saved up from years of heists with his brothers, Fionnan thought it was time to take his life in another direction. He enrolled in the Mages academy, and his competitive persona, and ways of sucking up to the teachers helped guide him effortlessly through the courses, preforming as expected. He chose a major in healing magics and conjuring, a trait that would cement him as an asset in any team. Graduating at the top of his class was probably his finest achievement, but, after completing his education, and being back out on the road again, it was a little obvious how little anyone actually cared about that.

    Weapons: Staff, when not casting spells, its good for a nice whack or two. Some off hand knives to defend himself close range.
    Skills: Observant, a kiss ass.
    Strengths: Healing magic, use of regenerative spells. Frees up his time to deal more damage. - he will be annoyed if he has to heal you too much, so for his sake, try to dodge.
    Alignment: Chaotic neutral
    [Physical]
    Body type: Short, Scrawny, a bit scrappy.
    complexion: Very fair
    Expression: Looks to be scowling constantly, probably because of the scar running up his upper lip. Don't ask him how he got it.
    Height: 5'0" even
    weight: 90 lbs
    Hair: Sleek, white, and a bit too proper looking. Might look a bit dorky, but don't tell him that. He seems almost proud of his hairstyle.
    Fashion: princely would be a good word to describe it, favorite colors are black and red.
    Notable features: A bit of a Pinocchio nose, always turned up at something or other.
