Krios (Character App)

Post  Krios on Sun Sep 04, 2011 12:25 pm

Name: Krios Apollos

Gender:Male

Race: Human/Elf

Age:23

Birth place:The plains of Wildervale

Hair colour:Black

Eye colour:Emerald green

Physical description:Krios stands to be 6'5 weighing a mere 215 pounds. His skin is tan, yet not too dark. His eyes are a glowing emerald green. There is a single scar running under his right eye. His face he leaves scruffy. Krios typically wears a black cloak, black undershirt with black pants following. This specific attire allows him to better blend in.

Personality/History: Krios was raised in a poor home. He was not accepted by his peers as a result of his "race"...his father was a human...his mother an elf...where did that leave young Krios?...a "half-ling"...a "mixed-breed"...just a couple of the cruel names that he was labeled by.

His parents were...well they were there...in a sense. His mother was sick most of the time...she was bedbound and given very little hope by the numerous doctors that came to see about her...not much was known about her sickness, perhaps a plague...perhaps an evil spirit...nevertheless she was a very sick woman.

His father, on the other hand...was out of the picture. He had not abandoned them...at least not in the sense that one would think. He was a part of the army...a knight...serving the high king and going to conquer distant lands, or so Krios had been told...needless to say Krios knew very little about his father, only what his mother told him. On the wall inside their home was a picture of a valient warrior said to be his father...that is the only thing left of his father, save an old sword which Krios took a particular interest in.

Unfortunately the kingdom cared very little about taking care of the soldier's families while they were away so Krios was forced to turn to theivery just to make a way...he was much too young at the time to try and find a job and he couldn't find work because who would be left to attend to his sick mother?...

At the brutal age of thirteen his mother drew her final breath. Her spirit formed into a gem while her body slowly evaporated into thin air, which Krios placed upon a thin piece of rope and tied it around his neck. He had heard legends of spirit gems before , yet he had never seen one being forged before his very eyes....this way he would always have his loving mother with him.

At the time he knew not of any surviving family membmers...save his father, yet he only knew his father was in a distant land, running errands for the king.

With his father's sword, and his mother's spirit, Krios left with nothing more than the clothes on his back. Since then he has honed his skills as not only a petty thief, but a lone warrior...longing for something more...



Specialisation:Rogue, archery, swordsmanship.

Prominent skills/spells:Excellent swordmanship, quiet and sneaky, grand assassin.

Occupation:Thief..

(My profile pic should serve as a sample of how my character would appear. I'm sorry that this is so short, but perhaps it will be sufficient.)

Hello! I will have to say that the app is a bit vague. If you could expand on his history a bit, that should be fine. Wildervale is in the Free Marches, isn't it? How did he end up in Ferelden? What happened to his family and what did his father think about him taking on a darker line of work? Was it a specific instance that led him to change his mind about enlisting in an army? If he was valiant and too honourable to "backstab" his way up in the ranks, what made him okay with assassination and thieving?

A little more insight into his past and details regarding his personality and this application should be approved no problem. :]

Hello! Thanks for expanding on your character's history. I'm a little curious about this "spirit gem". I personally haven't heard about people's souls or spirits or ghosts congealing and becoming a jewel. Is this some form of magic? Does it have any special powers? How did it become a gem? Did the body disappear and suddenly a pendant was in its place? This seems like an unusual occurrence; did Krios find it odd? If you could find some way to explain that, it should be fine.

That's the only problem I see with your application except for your Specialisation. Your Class would be Rogue and then you pick areas of expertise for your character for your Specialisation (for example, maybe your Rogue has Archery and Bard as its Specialisations). You're welcome to have up to 2 Specialisations at creation. Right now, you have picked none, so I thought I would point it out in case you wanted some areas of expertise. Otherwise, your character might just be a jack of all trades, master of none or unskilled in all areas, which is perfectly acceptable and possible too. Just pointing it out! :] If you'd like, feel free to check out the Specialisations section.

Changes have been added. The gem is merely for a somewhat moral support, not powers come with it or anything of the sort.

Sorry to have been so picky. :] Sometimes it's difficult to understand a character's motivation or their creator's vision when it's not your own, you know?

APPROVED!

It's all good. I completely understand, I've been an Admin and Mod before, sometimes you have to clarify things like that.
