    Default

    In-game name: Malconia
    Server: Faeblight
    Guild: Destiny and Dream
    Preferred RP type: Any

    The character:

    Full name: Malconia id-Mirielle
    Faction: Guardian
    Race: High Elf
    Gender: Male
    Occupation: Hunter and Mercenary


    Past:
    Malconia id-Mirielle grew up privileged, skilled, and above all, arrogant. The youngest daughter of a tribal chieftain in a secluded Elven settlement, Malconia is the young gun everywhere that she goes, even amongst mathosians and the other shirt lived races. Always brash, always confident, and unwavering in her opinions, she has only ever truly respected her father, even seeing her eldest brothers as less than she.

    From the time she could walk, the elf was trained for the hunt, learning how to track an animal over bare rock, and efficiently dispatch it when it was inevitably found. Far too often as a girl, Mal's father had to scold the girl for hunting lethal and dangerous prey, far too much for a child of her years. Still though, the young hunter never failed, and never as much as sustained as much as a scratch from her quarry. Naturally silent and with the keen aim of the famed Elven archers, Malconia often killed before anything even realized she was there.

    By the time she had reached her teen years, Mal had slain every type of beast in her forest, and was regarded amongst the best in the tribe when it came to using a bow, no small honor. Soon after, she began accompanying his father and brothers on weeklong expeditions to the depths of the Fae, honing her craft further. Soon she began undertaking these expeditions on his own, feeling the need to see more and more of the world.

    The last of these treks was a reconnaissance mission on the outskirts of her own forest, she was with 3 of her fellow tribesman. It was the last of these treks because Malconia was both literally and figuratively stabbed in the back by one of them, and was dead before she could comprehend what had happened. The face of her killer remains a mystery, and it infuriates the hunter to know he walked free. Her ascendence has gifted her new life, but Mal remains much the same. Perhaps a bit more driven by anger these days, but the same snide killer she always was.

    Looks:
    Malconia is a dark beauty, in all senses. Her hair is a deep black that oft looks blue in the light, her rich olive skin a stark contrast to many of her brethren's translucence. Slender and graceful, she isn't too tall, even by Elven standards, but is by no means diminutive.

    Identifying Marks/Quirks/Signature Items:
    She prefers dark hues, for practical reasons and preferential ones. She has small markings on the outside or her eyes that contrast sharply with her light corneas.

    RP type: Any and all.

    Default Zrin Kiraneth

    I'm doing this as a sort of archive for my character. Warning: Wall of text!

    Full name: Zrin Kiraneth
    Faction: Defiant
    Race: Kelari/Human
    Gender: Male
    Occupation: None, Ex-Keeper of the Dead for The Caretakers of Dusken

    Appearance:
    In public and (rarely) not wearing his plethora of helmets, Zrin sports dark blue fair hair with identical coloured eyes. Though it is no secret that upon reaching points of strong emotion, they darken to a deep purple, shortly followed by mist that shimmers the same colour that seeps from the man.
    His armour alternates between two suits, one displays him as a hulking behemoth with ethereal spikes that protrude from his helmet and shoulderplates, flanked by steel gauntlets and finished off with a heavy breastplate that extends downwards to his leggings and sabatons.
    The other suit of armour brings him under a new light as a nimble fighter in a setup that seems to stretch and bend to his movements. Weilding energy weapons under the tutelage of Harbinger and Arbiter magic, Zrin strides with pride and confidence wherever he goes.
    To carry the armour he wears, Zrin's body is toned and muscular beyond the norm, though not absurdly so. It is obvious he keeps himself in shape with exercise and "magnificent genocide" as he has once been reported saying.

    Past:
    Zrin's past differs from lifetime to lifetime, seeing as he has had many. In public knowledge, he was on the last ship to leave what is now Ember Isle following the Rifts opening in the Kelari's home. He was a young man with a stutter and a fiancee. She was taken from him by the very Death magic that he possesses in terrifying quantity, clinging to his family's line for generations. Akylios, or perhaps an avatar of such, assaulted the ship that Zrin sailed on and slaughtered the crew. For whatever reason, the creature allowed the Kelari to live, but not before cracking his mind into fragments, from which Zrin's second undead servant was born. The first was his father, Sybra Kiraneth who pledged mind and soul to his son after being killed by a Death Rift. Arriving at the Kelari Refuge, Zrin hid from his kin, fearing and eventually receiving ridicule for having a warped form of insanity. Eventually he attempted suicide by drowning, but was saved by a Bahmi who upheld the Oath of Hospitality and took him in.

    Years passed and Zrin was introduced to a man by the name of Xosh Darkheart, shortly afterward becoming apprentice to him. Both Xosh and Zrin were Kelari and so formed a bond quickly, taking on a very dysfunctional duo who called themselves family. After a time, Zrin disappeared, having run away to the Moonshade Highlands following possession by a fragment of Akylios embedded in his mind. He was cleansed of this after an arduous series of brutal procedures at the hand of an Ethian woman whom he had begun to spend time with. She and Zrin were married for a short time before infidelity split them apart, with Zrin feeling the victim for not being open enough. During his period of being single, Zrin spent almost all of his time in the Death-touched lands of Dusken and the Steppes of Infinity, skyrocketing through the ranks of The Caretakers until The Overseer promoted him to a Keeper of the Dead, being given command of three divisions of troops along with freedom to do as he saw fit to keep Dusken and the Steppes of Infinity safe.

    Rage and borderline insanity clawed at the man constantly until such time that he met a Mathosian woman who commanded the powers of a Tempest. They held a tentative relationship for a time, both unsure exactly what direction they wanted to go until they shared a bed together for the first time and became a couple. They have since never been seen far apart from one another, having formed an emotional and Soul Bond together.

    Lately, however, rumblings in the Vengeful Sky have triggered warning lights across the board as a dimensional shard has been revealed to being concealed by advanced technology not seen since the time of the Karthans. With the assault from the Bloodfire Army and demons around every corner, the true nature of Zrin Kiraneth is revealed...

    Talking Alososus

    Full Name: Alososus. (He abandoned his name long ago, replacing it with what he heard the waves whisper.)
    Nicknames: N/A (Far too secretive to become well known enough for any titles.)

    Biographical: Alososus
    Level: 60
    Class: Mage (Necromancer)
    RP Power: Masterful control over the plane of death, and the ability to become undead himself.

    Race: Kelari
    Gender: Male
    Date of Birth: Ten years before The Shade.
    Age: (Since there is no specific date given for the events of The Shade, I will go with his ascended age of 29.)
    Hair: Mohawk, with deep purple highlights.
    Skin: Light grey with purple taint, caused by prolonged exposure to death energy.
    Eyes: Deep purple, also influenced by prolonged exposure to death energy.
    Height: Very tall for a Kelari, dwarfing even some elves.
    Weight: Very light.

    Place of Residence: N/A (nomadic, traveling across Telara, attempting to find a way to ressurect the mad dragon god Akylios.)
    Place of Birth: Ember Isles

    Relatives: N/A (died long before his ascension)
    Enemies: Guardians, Defiants, Rival cults, especially The Wanton,
    Allies: The Abyssal Cult, The Endless Court, Defiants (not really- just a spy.)

    Occupation: Abyssal Technomagus, spy.
    Crafting: Dream Weaver, Mining, Outfitter.

    Appearance: A very tall Kelari with welcoming features and a warm smile, this particular Kelari has become tainted with death magic after years of living with The Endless Court. He says he has left his old ways behind, but some still suspect him of being up to no good.

    Fashion of Choice: He enjoys dressing to impress, and you will often see him in elaborate getup designed to strike fear into the hearts of lesser beings.
    Armor of Choice: See above.
    Weapons of Choice: He enjoys using staves, as they can store and release high powered bursts of energy best suited for taking down an opponent quickly.

    Special Abilities: His remarkable charm and wit allows him to infiltrate even the most secure of organizations, and he has made away with countless Defiant machinery to use as tools for his perverted studies.
    Personality: Eccentric and slightly mad, most see him as a bit of an oddball, but harmless enough. He will often be seen walking on the beach, staring longingly at the waves, or swimming in a remote pool, playing with the water elementals and teasing the seacaps with his befriended Deep Ones. Even though he specializes in Death, he has a natural affinity to the Plane of Water, and some have reported him speaking with Endless Court cultists, only to turn around and slay another. It is suspected by most that it is his own pet espionage mission, and he has dropped numerous hints leading to this conclusion, all building the facade of trustworthiness and grace. But deep inside lurks a chilling madness, a madness that was present from the beginning of his new life.
    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, but my personal pick is Chaotic. No other added bit, just Chaotic.
    Motivations: All of his actions are either to A: Keep up the facade and allow further infiltration into Defiant operations, or B: To find a way to resurrect Akylios so that he may give the gift of madness to all.
    Disposition: He has a very sunny disposition, and tries to see the bright side of everything. However, there will always be that carnal beast of insanity lurking within.
    Outlook: He subscribes to the belief that all knowledge is good knowledge, and has consequently shattered most of his mind into tiny little pieces. However, the duality of insanity allows him to maintain the disguise of trust.

    Religion/Philosophy: He has no religion or philosophy, besides the worship of Akylios.

    Sexuality: Super gay

    Positive Personality Traits: Creative, energetic, courageous, adaptable
    Negative Personality Traits: Untrustworthy, insane, deceitful, sociopathic
    Misc. Quirks: He enjoys the cuisine of the dwarves immensely, and will often sit with one at a local tavern and share a hearty breakfast.
    Affiliations: The Abyssal.
    Guild: The Abyssal Cult. (not joking, I made it)
    Guild Rank: Leader
    Faction: Defiant
    Interests: Magitech, Planar magic, Planar flora and fauna, the occult and esoteric, forbidden things
    Likes: Water, long walks on the beach, getting hammered with dwarves (haha), hunting in Scarwood Reach
    Dislikes: Ants, The Plane of Earth, anything in the Pus Swamp, Dusken cuisine, Giant spiders

    Favorite Foods: Ghar cuisine, dwarven cuisine, and for some strange reason Seacap Eggs.
    Favorite Drinks: Mathosian Ale, Dwarven Mead, and water.
    Favorite Colors: Purple, Black.

    Hobbies: Going insane, Dreaming, studying with Sylver, talking war with Asha Catari
    Details: If you mention the word "fire" near him, he will grow visibly agitated.
    Played by What Famous Person: Not sure what to put here?

    Theme Songs: Korn- Coming Undone (fitting, eh?)

    Pre-Ascension History: Alososus was born on the Ember Isles, but did not stay long, as he was soon abducted by Endless Court members who arrived via a portal they were able to open within a death rift. While the rest of the children were sacrificed to Regulos to appease his eternal hunger, an Endless Court officer known as Saria Cthan took him in, seeing somthing within his eyes that could be potentially valuable to the Endless. He was raised in Mathosia, learning the arts of death magic. His first minion was his own fallen "mother"- Saria was sacrificed to Maelforge in the most painful and most famous manner possible- Wanton cultists removed various appendages from her body, and laid them on the altar individually, while goblin healers kept her alive whilst increasing the pain she felt twofold with various toxins- all to please the Lord of Suffering. To this day, he has had an unending hatred for the Wanton, without truly being able to explain why. His introduction into The Abyssal Cult began when he first stepped into Freemarch, and found an Abyssal spy hiding in a bush nearby The Ark of The Ascended. After questioning her for some time, she eventually led him to the water's edge, and told him to listen to the waves. After some time had passed, he faintly heard a song of seemingly infinite knowing. He stepped closer to the water, and he tried to make out the words, to no avail. He turned to face the cultist, but she was gone. Taking matters into his own hands, he rowed out to sea, passing monsters of impressive length. As soon as he could almost make out the words, he tied a stone to his feet and dove overboard, increasingly becoming more insane with each passing moment. Only when he finally comprehended what he was hearing that his mind snapped, and he found himself sitting bolt upright, covered in sand and kelp, with crabs crawling on his body. Ever since then, he has aided the Abyssal Cult in attempting to resurrect Akylios after the faith-blind Guardians and the pesky Defiants banded together to kill his master under Hammerknell.

    P.S: This is my first ever character, please let me know if I need to tweak or edit my OC, or if it seems believable.
    Thanks!

    P.P.S: I do enjoy playing the bad guy, and I know how to do it well. I'm not using this as an excuse to be a jerk, I genuinely like doing evil characters. Thanks again!
