  • 1. How would your character describe their childhood?
    alaya barely remembers her childhood now, given that it was so long ago. she grew up with her parents and younger brother who she loved. they didn't have much to call their own, often toeing the line on having enough to get by. despite this, she remembers being very happy growing up surrounded by friends and generally having a lot of fun despite the circumstances they were living under. although she doesn't remember a lot of it, her childhood had a big influence on the kind of person she is now - she always remembers not having much, and as a result she is careful to never take anything for granted and to treat people with the respect they deserve regardless of where they come from.
    2. What were your character’s favorite childhood activities?
    she adored reading as a child and would read whichever books she could get her hands on. stargazing was also something she enjoyed when she got the chance to stay up late enough to see them. her brother often used to drag her out exploring the forest nearby their home and whilst she protested it to begin with she came to enjoy it - although she would never admit that to him of course. all of the activities she enjoyed were simple things, and the simplicity of them was one of the main reasons that they were her favourites.
    3. What was your character’s fondest childhood memory?
    one moment that alaya will always remember from her childhood was the family trip to the beach. they'd never been able to afford anything vaguely resembling a holiday so the three day trip was a very exciting occasion for them all. the weather was incredible and running across the sand with her brother was one of the most thrilling moments for her at that time. because of it being a one of occasion it has always stuck in her head as it was one of the few times her family were all together and all genuinely happy.
    4. Is your character a virgin? If not, when did they lose their virginity?
    no. she's a couple of hundred years old by this point so it's not surprising that she doesn't remember when exactly it was.
    5. Who has the greatest influence on your character? Why?
    this is a difficult question to answer with regards to alaya. she is very much a 'people person' and as such almost everyone she comes into contact with has had some kind of influence on her, whether it's been positive or negative. if it was to be narrowed down to one person, however, it would be liam. he's been there for almost as long as she can remember now and has seen her at her best and at her worst. he has been a large part of her being the person she is now and has only made her strive to be better as much as she can.
    6. Is your character able to kill? Under what circumstances do they find it acceptable?
    alaya likes to think that if it came down to a life or death situation she would be able to, but in reality she most likely wouldn't be able to bring herself to do it. she has a great deal of power, especially when compared to humans, but she has never abused it - she only tends to use it defensively when she or someone she cares about is in trouble. she cares too much about other people and at the end of the day is too gentle to be capable of killing someone. she's also surrounded by people who love her and would do their best to avoid her ending up in a position where she would have to kill.
    7. Is there anything your character refuses to do? What is it and why?
    there are probably a few things, but one of the main ones (and perhaps one of her greatest flaws) is that she will refuse to turn her back on someone she believes she can help. she's extremely loyal to her friends regardless of what's happened between them and will not give up on them even if she's lost them for good. this has been a problem for her in the past but that doesn't stop her from making the same mistakes again.
    8. In general, how does your character treat others?
    alaya approaches everyone as a potential friend until they give her a reason to treat them otherwise. she does her best to be kind to everyone she meets as far as possible and dislikes getting caught up in disagreements or fights which is another reason for her to be as positive as she can around others. she is too trusting a lot of the time, wanting to see the best in other people unless they reveal themselves to be someone she cannot get on with. in this situation she will be more likely to then just try and avoid that person as much as she can so that she doesn't have to confront them.
    9. Who is your character’s best friend? How did they meet?
    liam. hands down. they often reminisce about how they originally met but hardly interacted at all and then were lucky enough to find each other again. their first meeting was at a masquerade ball being hosted by liam's family. both of them had escaped to the fountain for some air and met in an encounter that resulted in liam tripping back into the fountain - a reason that it is a memory that gets brought up on a regular basis. they weren't properly introduced at this and it wasn't until a gathering of all of the immortals that they next met and realised that neither of them were humans.
    10. If your character died or went missing, who would miss them?
    a lot of people. as mentioned, alaya is a people person and has a lot of friends. she's generally an upbeat and optimistic person and her being missing would be noticeable. she has several close friends who would miss her dearly, and liam especially would be distraught - much in the same way she was distraught when she thought she had lost him.
    11. What does your character look for in a potential lover?
    someone she can rely on and who will be there through the good and the bad. someone who would be a best friend. she found all of this in liam and couldn't be happier - they're perfect for each other.
    12. How can someone impress your character?
    by being kind - either to her or to others. she's not one to be impressed by displays of strength or power but if someone demonstrates compassion when there's another option available alaya will be impressed.
    13. What are your character’s pet peeves?
    when people argue for no real reason - especially when they're in the wrong, are aware of that fact, but still continue to try and argue their case anyway. alaya also hates it when people are cruel or unkind to children simply because they "don't like children."
    14. Name three things your character is good at. Name three things they’re bad at.
    alaya is good at defusing arguments before they can completely blow up. she's become an incredible baker after putting in a great deal of practice. she is also good at listening and is more than happy to simply be someone people can talk to when they need it. whilst she can settle arguments between other people, alaya is bad at dealing with confrontation when it's directed at her. she's bad at taking charge and being in a leadership position and actively avoids ending up with that role when she can. finally, she is not the best at letting go of things - she doesn't want to give up on anything until it becomes absolutely necessary.
    15. What would your character want to be remembered for after death?
    she would want people to remember her as she was, nothing more and nothing less. for her positivity and kindness - most people would probably remember her fondly and she couldn't hope for anything more than that.

Trystan Blackwell
Human Bard


1. How would your character describe their childhood? Trystan's childhood was a free and happy one. Despite having lost his parents at a young age, he followed his best friend Alastor as his loyal servant, serving as second command as the two of them led their group of friends on outrageous adventures during their childhood. He'd describe his childhood as the happiest time of his life.
2. What were your character’s favorite childhood activities? Definitely getting into trouble around Daggerford, they'd spook the cows and pretend they were heroes off on quests and see who could get closest to Old Man Jenkins while he was asleep without waking him up.
3. What was your character’s fondest childhood memory? Something that would involve him and his 'family' or at least the people he considered family. Himself, Alastor, Karissa, Thoril, Mirek and Loissa, probably hanging out at Alastor's house.
4. Is your character a virgin? If not, when did they lose their virginity? Probably not lol. Alastor is prone to getting himself into trouble with the ladies.
5. Who has the greatest influence on your character? Why? Alastor Land, his best friend and brother. Before they met, Trystan was a good for nothing orphan thief, and Alastor was the one who convinced him to get a job at the local tavern and serve as a secondary leader figure among their group of friends, without him he would have gotten into a lot more trouble than he already has
6. Is your character able to kill? Under what circumstances do they find it acceptable? He's not a natural killer, but he'll kill if he has to. In Daggerford, especially under King Sephiran's rein, you learn that you have to do what you have to do
7. Is there anything your character refuses to do? What is it and why? Nah. xD Trystan is willing to do pretty much anything it takes to win, so long as it doesn't mean disrespecting or betraying his friends.
8. In general, how does your character treat others? Trystan is overall a friendly and social guy. He works as a musician at the local inn, The Rusty Bucket and loves listening to others tell stories and tell stories himself.
9. Who is your character’s best friend? How did they meet? Alastor Land. They met because they grew up together, with completely different lives in the same village. Alastor had the perfect family, loving parents and siblings and Trystan was some punk on the street. Alastor took pity on him and invited him over for some warm bread when they were little and it just went from there
10. If your character died or went missing, who would miss them? Trystan is generally well liked, so his loss would be a blow to most of the villagers of Daggerford but his friends, whom he adventures with and grew up with would surely feel his death hit hardst the most.
11. What does your character look for in a potential lover? For as much of a womanizer as Trystan is, he has no idea what he wants in a woman. But if he were to choose, he'd want for them to have a sense of humor, to be brave, to be fun and unafraid to get down and dirty.
12. How can someone impress your character? Definitely by telling him something he doesn't already know, or getting him some juicy gossip. xD
13. What are your character’s pet peeves? Sticks. In. The. Mud.
14. Name three things your character is good at. Name three things they’re bad at. Good: Singing, diplomacy, his spear. Bad: Flirting, drinking and general navigation.
15. What would your character want to be remembered for after death? Being fun and being free.

Karissa Harwood
Human Ranger

1. How would your character describe their childhood? While the rest of her family were often fooling around, Karissa was oftentimes hunting and taking care of her younger brother, Finnick. Her parents were always working in the mines but the coin they earned always ended up being snatched up by their 'boss' Balabar Smenk, who worked them to the bone with little to no coin in return, leaving Karissa to be the one to hunt and fend for the family
2. What were your character’s favorite childhood activities? The brief times that she was able to hang out with her friends, although she never really managed to be as imaginative as them
3. What was your character’s fondest childhood memory? Snuggled up with her dog under a tree, or maybe when she shot down her first buck.
4. Is your character a virgin? If not, when did they lose their virginity? Virgin
5. Who has the greatest influence on your character? Why? She doesn't have anyone. While she looked up to Alastor Land he didn't have a profound effect on her life, and her whole life she's always had to take care of herself.
6. Is your character able to kill? Under what circumstances do they find it acceptable? She kills (animals) as a profession but if she had to shoot down someone who endangered her or her family that dude is going down.
7. Is there anything your character refuses to do? What is it and why? Dresses and learning how to read. She finds dresses uncomfortable and thinks that if anything is worth knowing it can be said and not read.
8. In general, how does your character treat others? Karissa is generally pretty aloof and cold to people who first meet her, despite having a good heart. She's a very down to earth young owman and can be perceived as being haughty.
9. Who is your character’s best friend? How did they meet? Her best friend is her dog, Shiloh. Their meeting is nothing exceptional, there was a box of pups one day out in the rain on the streets of Daggerford. Most of the pups had frozen to death, save for one so she scooped him up and claimed him as her own.
10. If your character died or went missing, who would miss them? Her friends would miss her for a while, but Karissa has managed to keep a bit of distance between herself and them so they wouldn't be traumatized. Her dog would probably miss her the most
11. What does your character look for in a potential lover? She ain't interested rn
12. How can someone impress your character? Karissa's traction and speed in the woods is unmatched, so when someone can outshoot her or outrun her, they earn her immediate respect. She admires people who speak through their body rather than their mouth.
13. What are your character’s pet peeves? Posh people, definitely. And mages....she's definitely not fond of mages. Especially mages that TURN HER DOGS INTO HUMANS. @ You know who
14. Name three things your character is good at. Name three things they’re bad at. Good: Archery, tree parkour, navigation. Bad: Diplomacy, literacy, general cleanliness
15. What would your character want to be remembered for after death? She doens't care what people think of her when she's dead, it's when she's alive that she's concerned about

    • 1. How would your character describe their childhood?
      Verity had little to no stability growing up. Her parents were junkies and were part of the reason she headed down the wrong path. Foster care lead to homelessness by choice, which lead to drug dealing, theft, and other illegal activities. She was a criminal by the age of six and continued until she was arrested for a DUI at the age of twenty.

      2. What were your character’s favorite childhood activities?
      Despite her rough past, she loved art. She had a talent for design and drawing from the very beginning, her work being very accurate and detailed for such a young kid. She drew her first portrait at age eight which looked incredible realistic for something drawn by the hands of a child. From there her passion only grew.

      3. What was your character’s fondest childhood memory?
      There are little to none, but she does remember spending many night at her Grandmothers when her parents were too drugged to do anything with her. She would teach her how to bake and cook and then they would spend hours on the porch painting or drawing. She ended up on foster care when she was ten after her Grandmother passed as there was no longer a fitting adult to care for her.

      4. Is your character a virgin? If not, when did they lose their virginity?
      God, no. It took her awhile and a lot of sex with men until she realized she was a lesbian. And then the sex just continued on with women from there. She was rather promiscuous as a young adult and still had a bit of that fire in her. She lost her virginity at age 14, which was not ideal or legal, but at the time she didn't care.

      5. Who has the greatest influence on your character? Why?
      Nobody. V has nobody in her life anymore, so the greatest influence would have to be her art. That, or booze.

      6. Is your character able to kill? Under what circumstances do they find it acceptable?
      She almost killed someone in the car accident that had her arrested for a DUI, but other than that she had never come close and would never plan to. It's not acceptable for her.

      7. Is there anything your character refuses to do? What is it and why?
      Drugs. Never again will they be in her system, no matter how hard it would be.

      8. In general, how does your character treat others?
      She has a short fuse, but she does try to treat people with respect.

      9. Who is your character’s best friend? How did they meet?
      She doesn't have one. Her Grandmother was, but she's long gone now.

      10. If your character died or went missing, who would miss them?
      Nobody would know. Except her parole officer who now checks in annually.

      11. What does your character look for in a potential lover?
      Somebody honest, patient, and kind. As much as Verity loves sex, she's done with sleeping around and wants someone loyal and someone to love her for who she is.

      12. How can someone impress your character?
      Being artistic in some form. Whether it be writing, music, drawing, or tattooing like herself.

      13. What are your character’s pet peeves?
      Any parent that doesn't take care of their kid.

      14. Name three things your character is good at. Name three things they’re bad at.
      She's good at tattooing, drawing, and keeping to her word.
      She's bad at controlling her temper, meeting new people, and opening up to others.

      15. What would your character want to be remembered for after death?
      Verity would want to be remembered for her art work, not for the horrible adolescent and criminal she used to be.

Centa Avius
1. How would your character describe their childhood?

Centa's childhood wasn't too great. Her mother died while giving birth to her and her father was a drunkard that would always tell Centa that it was her fault that her mother died. At the age of six, she ran away from her horrible life to live a more free one on the streets. This lasted until the age of 12, when she was caught in the act of one of her survival techniques.

2. What were your character’s favorite childhood activities?

Centa was, what most people called, a "street rat". Most of her childhood activities involved pickpocketing and general theft, but these were things she needed to do to survive. She wasn't allowed many other opportunities to take up other hobbies as the rest of her day would usually be spent either running from or hiding from the local guards.

3. What was your character’s fondest childhood memory?

Centa's fondest childhood memory was simply escaping her drunkard father's abuse and taking up her life on the streets. She may have been throwing herself into a difficult life, but it couldn't have been any worse than the life her father was giving her.

4. Is your character a virgin? If not, when did they lose their virginity?

Centa is a virgin. She has too many trust issues to get into any type of stable relationship before resolving the thing that gave her the trust issues.

5. Who has the greatest influence on your character? Why?

Centa's friends and "family" hold a great amount of influence over her for two completely different reasons. Even though she is distant and will quickly shut herself down to anyone prying too deep into her history, anyone who can overlook these quirks, Centa will consider a friend and she will fight her hardest to protect them. Centa's "family", however, holds influence over her through fear that she is about to lose her very essence. She does not consider her father as one of her family.

6. Is your character able to kill? Under what circumstances do they find it acceptable?

Centa is able to kill. She will kill for defense of herself and her friends. When she kills for hers and her friends' defense, it is usually provoked by attackers. She will defend just herself, even if her friends are right there beside her. This is a reaction to the fear she has of her "family".

7. Is there anything your character refuses to do? What is it and why?

Centa refuses to become the type of person that her "family" wants her to be. Her "family" wants her to be a cruel, callous person and she's too kind-hearted to want any of that.

8. In general, how does your character treat others?

At first, Centa will seem distant to normal people; however, she will always be willing to help those that she sees on the streets due to her past. Over time, she will become closer to those that accept her quirks and push away those who deny her quirks. She will never harm someone unless either provoked or scared.

9. Who is your character’s best friend? How did they meet?

Centa's best friend is a bar owner named Madame Siliana Reece. She really helped Centa get accustomed to her new surroundings upon fleeing from her "family". They met when Centa was 23. Centa walked into Madame Reece's bar to gather information about her new environment and got all the help she needed, and more, from the owner.

10. If your character died or went missing, who would miss them?

If Centa went missing, she wouldn't be missing for long due to her amazing ability to escape. Either she will escape on her own or her friends would come looking for her and help her escape. The ones she considers her friends would definitely be the ones to miss her if she were to pass away or suddenly go missing.

11. What does your character look for in a potential lover?

If Centa was able to get passed her trust issues to consider a potential lover, it would have to be someone from her close friends. This person would have to have proven to her that there's no secret that he/she wouldn't take to the grave. It would most likely be this person that Centa tells her whole past to.

12. How can someone impress your character?

Centa is impressed by people who treat the less fortunate/less privileged with kindness, rather than pushing them around. This is one thing she considers before she considers a person as one of her friends.

13. What are your character’s pet peeves?

Centa's biggest pet peeve is seeing someone bully or pick on someone else just because of the person looks or acts differently.

14. Name three things your character is good at. Name three things they’re bad at.

Centa is amazing at hiding from those she doesn't want to find her, listening to those she deems important, and bluffing as a means to hide her past. She isn't too good at dealing with animals (either training them or trying to keep them calm while she's trying to run or hide), entertaining others, and fixing things.

15. What would your character want to be remembered for after death?

Centa would like to be remembered as the one who would always stand up for those who couldn't stand up for themselves. She has been very passionate about helping people ever since she left her "family" behind.
