Taruma I always imagine as having one of those faces where the age is a little hard to guess, and having no hair probably doesn't help, but if she's anywhere past 40 based on her face that would probably be surprising. I don't actually imagine much standing out about her physically, shaved head aside. About 5'6", not particularly muscled, scarred, or calloused, though she does have tattoos on her arms (and the rest of her, though she's not often showing off all that much more skin than that). There's no real pattern to them- both colorful and monochrome, predominantly abstract designs, some little bits of poetry or prayer in a couple of languages, one further up the sleeve that appears to be some kind of gnomish mathematical equation. Multiply pierced ears but usually no earrings in them.

As far as posture and attitude, I sort of picture her as always having the feel of someone who is sitting in their favorite comfy chair, having just been told an amusing little story or joke, even when she's standing in the rain talking to murderers. She has a tendency to lounge and lean. She makes little attempt in her posture or positioning to call attention to herself. I imagine as far as accent she probably sounds close to local, but occasionally has a word or two that she pronounces oddly, with little consistency between what accent it has- like she's picked up a little from everywhere.

Taruma's clothes are generally brown, generic, travel-worn, but clean, without much in the way of jewelry or ornamentation- in many cases I think she probably gives the impression of only owning the robes she's got on, and not being at all bothered by that. She's not usually wearing a holy symbol of any kind. She does clean up well though, and looks as casual and at home in a fine dress as she does in her priest robes, and she's more than capable of accessorizing to match, but even when it's well done, I don't imagine it seems like something she cares terribly about. Like they're just, you know, clothes, and past that the particulars are not all that important.

PostAuthor: Brayon » Tue Feb 17, 2015 8:58 am

Five Years, and Six Pages, and I haven't posted on this? What's up with that! For my 2 main ones:

Jon:
Race: Half-Nymph
Height: 6ft.
Weight: 175 lbs.
Hair Color: Black, and somewhat spiky
Eye Color: Silver Blue
Build: Slender build, has little body hair, and no facial hair
Skin tone: Semi-Alabaster tone. Burns easily in harsh sunlight.

Jon is the stereotypical hipster twink, to use modern and gay phrasing. His clothing is always clean, using the Cantrip - Prestidigitation to keep it so. Though it maybe questionable as to what he is wearing, from his Order Robes, a nice Silk Suit, or just a Loin Cloth, sometimes at the oddest of places. Such as his Red Order Robes, while going through sewers in Mikona on an investigation. He's talks with a mix vocabulary of Nanshi and Common, sometimes to aggravate intentionally the locals of Mikona, while others its habit. He has an Elysian accent to his voice, and besides, Common and Nanshi, he does know Sylvan. Raised in the church of O'Ma as his mother was an O'man Priestess, he has some of their mannerism, but mostly he shows the mannerism of his patron god Dru'El. Dru'El's holy symbol can always be seen prominently on his chest, as he never takes it off. He likes to keep his hair short and spiky. Using his gifts as a Sorcerer and Aeromancer, he sparks lightning off of his hands from time to time, and sometimes will produce St. Elmo's Fire around them for dramatic effects. He is very fond of Jade's Coffee, and will carry a cup with him wherever he goes. He's even taken up the habit of having a wine-skin of it with him. When done, he sparks the cup to oblivion.

See Jon's Wiki page, or my Gallery for an updated pic I found for Jon.

AJ:
Race: Changeling
He's out of the closet about being a changeling, and doesn't hide it from anyone. There are some forms, that he does not share with people, so he can have his alone time, from others. Typically he will be seen in his Hound Archon form, or as a Male Human.

As Fuzzy Butt, the Holy Hound Archon of Forian, AJ stands 6 ft 5 in, and is covered in short brown fur. He has a canine head, and talks in a gruff voice. Powerful muscles, and build in this form. (Augmented by items, and spells.) Cloaked in his Forianite Garb, the real stuff, he strolls as a warrior about the place. His outlook is one of strength, and calm vigilance.

In Human Form, AJ stand 6 ft even. Red hair, and goatee. Hazel Eyes. Warrior build, and gait as he walks, and talks with a strong Kurtheren Accent. His voice does not sound like it does in his Hound Archon form, like all changelings in other forms. His outlook is a calm warrior, but compassionate as well. Lots of Playfulness, Merriment, and lately loves to hug people.

In all his doings, he puts Forian first and foremost, even before himself. He loves Forian with all his heart, and soul, and privately will admit that is why he is single. He follows Forian's will, and lives a life that brings him pleasure. Either working in his shops, plane-hopping to other worlds, taking a stroll to Zvidureth, causing some ruckus in Mikona, or fishing at the Port in Ferrell.

Pleth is the Best!
AJ is Arcadia's Brother

Liam stands at about Five foot seven inches, is slender and well proportioned having inherited much of the beauty of his nymph mother. He has medium length reddish blonde hair and clear pale blue eyes.

When travelling he will be attired in his Champions armor, hooded cloak surrounding him, at his waist a pair of identical longswords are slung from his belt. Over his right shoulder the hilt of another sword can be spied.

Liam has a personality that many would expect one of fey heritage to have, he is quick to smile or laugh and is generally lighthearted. Some might mistake this for naivety or simple youthfulness though they couldn't be more wrong. Liam can be very serious when its justified but he tries his best to remain optimistic and cheerful.

Hey, who's not in this thread that you wish was? Shout out and maybe they'll do requests.

I for one would like to see Vastin, Jacksen, Kice, and Flux for starters.

PostAuthor: Sloth King » Wed Feb 18, 2015 11:20 pm

Vastin stands at 5'9 with a thin, wiry build. Looking somewhere in his early thirties or late twenties, Vastin's flesh is the sort of pale that an unhealthy diet and long periods of time without sunlight tend to bring. Vastin's lanky hair is jet black and is usually tied back in a pony tail, bound tight such that the hair clings close to his scalp. Vastin's face is on the gaunt side, with narrow cheek bones and a pointed nose. He maintains a spanish style beard, though it does overgrow from inattention infrequently.

Vastin usually dresses in his order robes, which are kept at a minimum of presentable, often heavily creased or with a stain or crumbs scattered on them. Vastin most often stands in a comfortable slouch and is constantly fidgeting; shifting his weight, his stance and focus with regularity. Vastin's speech tends to be just as shifty and informal with frequent pauses, uhs, ahs and y'knows, his accent that of a delocalised Mikonan. Vastin approaches most people with a cheerful irreverence, his conversations tending to be a relatively unfocused friendly mess. This changes if a topic takes his interest, particularly if it relates to his areas of research; Vastin shifts to focused conversation with directed questioning and lengthy explanations though he often struggles to fully communicate his ideas, taking his own logical steps for granted in the minds of others.

Vastin wears no obvious religious paraphenalia, a thin rapier at his hip and has a myriad of pouches and pockets about his person. Vastin can infrequently be seen retrieving cookies, chocolate and other sweet goods from these pockets, his tendency to purchase many in advance meaning most of the time the baked goods are stale.

//As requested :)//

Kice has a very typical human build when it comes to her bone structure with slightly longer legs than torso, her shoulders and hips mirroring the other in broadness. She is very slender like a dancer with small, lean and taut muscles that grant her flexibility and speed more so than strength. At 5'7 tall she's not particularly imposing at a glance, more of a exotic quandary for the stark contrast of her silty brown complexion and the lightness of her hair, brows and lashes; all as white as sea foam. Her features lend her a girlish almost pixie look in a round jaw and narrow chin, complimented by a petite nose and lips, though her eyes possess a nymphish slant that lend a clearer impression of her fey parentage. Her posture is usually composed and a little regimented as though she is never fully at ease either in her surroundings or in herself, though she'll permit herself to occasionally lean or perch against a convenient surface at times something suitably captivating holds her attention.

She is well spoken and has a strong dislike of raising her voice, her accent suggests time spent around Elysians, though an inflection more typical of Crosstreams's middle class sometimes slips in when her speech becomes more animated. Kice tends to stay quite still when expected to listen or offer explanation but this can change once her focus turns inward in order to explore her own mind; lips pursed or nibbled and hands hidden in pockets or behind her back when wrestling with particularly complicated thoughts. To the casual acquaintance Kice's behaviour is perceivable as intriguing, confusing or frustrating depending on how they find her. She often does not express as much as she is thinking, her own methods of analysis, rationalization and sense of priorities honed by a personal discipline and rule set that has her habitually lean toward thinking hard before deciding who to engage and how. To people who recognize such things she is a typical introvert; possessing a desire to socialise and form relationships she is drawn to the vibrancy of intellect and creativity in others and yet easily worn out by the process of articulating her ideas and beliefs well enough to be understood.

Kice has a sense of style befitting to her own needs and tastes, her choice of attire often changing to best suit her surroundings or the seasons with effort made to keep clean and presentable whenever she can. She invests in a professionally tailored look, yet opts away from the extravagance of expensive fabric or decoration unless circumstances require such, favouring darker shades of most colours besides gold and yellow tones that she unapologetically shuns whenever she can get away with it. However, she collects items of jewellery and little trinkets that serve either a practical function for their magic or as a reminder of the steps she has taken on her own journey through life. She is often hooded, especially outdoors where the shadows casts across her eyes paired with magic woven into the material seem to bring her a measure of comfort especially at times she is required to draw upon and manipulate psionic energy. A symbol of Mikon's faith is sometimes visible about her neck though usually tucked discretely beneath her clothing.

Re: An open question about your characters

PostAuthor: Jacksen » Wed Feb 25, 2015 9:57 pm

Alright, heres a bit o' jacksen..

Physically, he does a good job of representing a surname like Aiken, standing tall and broad of shoulder. He is built sturdily, but defies a few stereotypes with some lightness to his feet. When I envision him, I tend to consider the fact that while he still employs and trains his martial aspects, he has been more focused on progressing his sorcery for some time, and so while perhaps once he had a very defined,athletic physique ... now I would simply describe it as respectably solid. As one might think from a more northern type, he possesses a healthy dusting of hair on his chest and forearms, etc.
His hair is a rich brown and falls in layers from his head, framing it well. In his mid-twenties, he owns a solid jaw, strong symmetrical features, and steel blue eyes. His face is usually possessing a light brushing of beard, occasionally it is heavier, sometimes clean shaven. It can often depend on his most recent circumstance and necessity.

His physical presence, facial hair, and pierced ears would make him easily taken for some traveling mercenary or sailor, if he were not most often in his armored mage robes.

Said robes are well maintained and kept as clean as manageable without being obsessed, the chainmail and plates shined and polished. His weapon of choice is maintained equally if not more so, a large curved sabre blade with an elongated handle, often visible slung over his back if not leaning against a nearby object.

Jacksen tends to stand with good posture though no one would call it perfect, and appears generally comfortable in the way he holds himself; from standing in his mage robes to kicking his boots up in 'mundane' attire. Whether this is just confidence, the ease of the charismatic, or a product of imperial upbringing - it could be a combination.
He speaks well and intelligently with a distinctly Trenish accent.

Neutrally he is quick with a grin, a chuckle, a witty remark, or a scathing opinion. Really with his personality what you see is what you get..whether thats interested, friendly, surprised, outraged, sardonic, imperious, or all of them in swift succession.

As a mage he is actually not particularly religious in the form of one all encompassing reverence. He tends to put more immediate belief into what he can effect, the weapon he can hold or the magic that his gift allows him to manipulate. He does however find an alignment of thought with the precepts of Senath, and on occasion a symbol of said deity can be found tucked under his armor. When he does pray his devotions go that direction. He will also tithe and pay deference to Andrinor, understandably, uttering the occasional prayer as well. Aside the two, he also gives appropriate nods and offerings when suiting to Ingoren and Toran.

Update: Post recent-ish trials/tribulations/encounters with ancient ice witches.

The greatest change following these events is the most obvious when you see him. Having his left eye gouged out by a witchery fueled talon, he now wears a thick patch over the eye in question. Scars from the wound spill out from under the patch down his left cheek.
Since the incident he has let his beard grow more fully and allowed his hair to now brush his shoulders - at times letting it cascade loosely, while at other times tying at least the top portions back.

His mannerisms and behavior are largely unchanged at the surface level, noticeably however his fighting style when in melee has perhaps understandably shifted - where before he may have relied more on spins and flourishes that benefited from the confidence of being able to see the field, now with his decreased field of vision he is far more economic, if appearing simple in his movements. Large sweeping strokes, chops, and attempts at impalement - a greater amount of strength and the inherent leverages of the 'horse-cleaver' weapon being employed.

Five foot tall somewhere between 110 and 120 pounds. I figure with MJ, her weight fluctuates as she sometimes forgets to eat, sometimes refuses to eat, is sometimes ravenously 'hun-ger- y', sometimes highly active and sometimes incredibly sedentary.

I picture her with her ginger hair swept up into a rough pony tail with strands hanging in her hazel eyes half the time and not a person to be overly concerned about her appearance - maybe with a smudge of dirt on her face and mud on her clothes. However, I think, she cleans up good when she goes to a party.

MJ's facial features and physique hint at a human and Nanshilae heritage, but the signs are very subtle probably only disernable by someone keen to make such classifications. Most likely people who don't care about such things are going to classify her as human.

I imagine she moves with an animal kind of grace and strength. I also imagine she typically makes big movements and speaks loudly like someone use to living out-of-doors might. I also don't see her being very lady-like but moving in more of a tom-boy type way. She'll slouch, put her boots on the table and eat off her knife but its just because that's the way she does things not because she's trying to make herself look tough.

No matter what else she is wearing, she has a holy symbol of O'Ma prominatly displayed around her neck, and the chain of it is adorned with shark's teeth. She also has a finely woven belt with little charms hanging from it, a leaf, a wolf, an hourglass, an owl, a turtle and a tiny crystal castle.

Her weapons are all stored in magical bags that hang from the belt. She still favors the longbow, however she no longer carries the Cutest Longbow in all of Avlis. She also has refined her fighting style and wields a smallish longsword and a small shield. Occasionally, she will use a sling. If a weapon is not in her hand, she typically is holding a plain looking walking stick.

Having been rendered scarless by the Great Dragonari Healer Aevedean during the battle of Gantir, she picked up a few new phyisical scars during the Spirit- kin battles of Elysia and Helby'ssia. Mosly notably, the palm of her left hand bears a thick heavy scar. A new mark on the palm of her right hand shows a circle bisected with four lines.

If your character is inclined to notice such things, MJ and her companion have the scent of rosemary and wintermint about them.

MJ's mannerism can swing from cold and distant to warm and intimate in an instant.

Khazak,

Four feet, three inches (and don't you forget it)
Beard, hair, armor, shield and weapons are usually very well kept (clean, polished, etc) hair and beard are usually braided carefully
Boisterous, good-natured, prideful, stubborn

Almost never separated from his shield.

Kha'lee

Race: Human
Height: 7'
Weight: 170 lbs
Hair: Sun Blond
Eye color: Ocean Blue
Body Build: Athletic, her 170 lb mass evenly proportioned on her frame
Skin tone: Tanned bronze

She is well groomed keeping a reasonable length of hair on her head but none anywhere else.
She usually only wears one of two outfits, her fall colored legless sleeveless robes while in public
or nothing at all in private. She can be spied on at times next to bodies of water basking
in the sun fully naked. She will mostly remain quiet when in large gatherings only speaking
when given the opportunity , however she often mutters under her breath. She has no accent
to her common and will try to use the lingo or phrases she hears spoken of the particular city or
area she is in. If she remains long enough in a particular city or wooded area she will attempt to
learn the language of the locals for better communication. She is not the helpfull type when she is,
she is doing it to better herself or sister's situation. She is not quick to anger and she will not remain
in a situation where she could explode into chaos, she will leave and plan for a better time to repay the vendetta.

Alaria C. Fryar
(Sister Clemence)
[Wiki Entry]
Last update: July 2017

Standing 5'7" at 140-145 lbs, Alaria is overboard top-heavy, with the strong limbs of a laundry maid and the stride of a farmer's market belle carrying a cider cask under each arm. That's where the resemblance with common riff-raff ends. In her attire and grooming, Alaria looks like she comes from money and is sparing no effort to retain it. Her heavy black hair is kept smooth by fragrant natural oils, her custom-tailored dresses flirt between handmaiden and heiress.

Whether Sister Clemence is wearing a hand-embroidered silk gown or a dark Shaahesk-scale armour, she favors a plain cloak of pristine white cloth. Not one for ostentatious jewelry, at all times she bears a twin set of acolyte's bands, one on each ring finger. Aarilax's holy symbol, another constant companion of Alaria's, may not be immediately apparent -- lost in the depths of her cleavage.

She is keenly aware of her social surroundings and chooses to follow along or ignore them as she sees fit. Eg. recently she opted for a waist-deep neckline at a royal infant's birthday reception, whereas the patrons of Vorin's Trove invariably see her in a modest corseted tunic. Wear what she may, it is still difficult for Sister Clemence to be perceived as modest exactly, no thanks to her ample bosom or her come-hither disposition.

Above the eye-popping anatomy details, also notable are her pointed chin and shapely, often pouting lips. Fair skin which the sun does not seem to touch and squinted, swamp green eyes hint at distant fey heritage; Alaria is otherwise as human as they come. Her voice is a soft mezzo-soprano, a bit on the sultry side. In her everyday discourse she maintains a superficial tone, abundant with hook/tag questions, endearments and interjections -- but she can talk business while at it.

Re: An open question about your characters

PostAuthor: Ulu Elexin » Fri Aug 07, 2015 1:12 am

So, I should update this.

ulu is:

an elf in her older years, ulu bears more lines in her face than were in her young adventuring days, and she squints through her dark green eyes when she speaks to someone, usually seeming to focus all her attention on whoever she is speaking with. her tone often belies amusement, her pointed elven face usually displaying a small smirk as if at some private joke. ulu is not often one to seem to speak in any serious manner, though it's well known she is quick to express her irritation with some hapless beings that may cross her path.

more often than not - at least in recent times - she can be found reading at a table near fort karr, glancing to those who pass by, and sometimes engaging in idle conversation with those who take time to stop. other days she reads outside the city, enjoying a glass of wine. it's clear she cares little for the aquisition of material wealth, her robes and items of high quality, any wands she is seen to use fashioned from gold.

Since I've forgotten how to backlink...I'll just update this.

Some things about Khazak that people may notice:
He's got crow's feet and laugh lines as if he often smiles or laughs, enjoying good humor. His eyes are extremely expressive, despite being hidden behind bushy brows and a lot of facial hair, it's easy to tell when he's angry, frustrated, excited, happy or otherwise.

He's also honest, sometimes brutally so, and is one of those types that you'll always know where you stand with him.

Perhaps less obvious but noticeable by those who spend the most time with him, he wrestles with his own predispositions and prejudices, often expressing distrust or mild aggression toward creature-types and people-types that he's had bad experiences with or be raised with prejudices against and often trying to check himself against that behavior.

At a glance

Kiara is a Elf from Southren Tyedu. Her skin is as white as the snows of her homeland.Her face showing the usual traits of the Northmen, Mixed with her Elven nature cold hard and chiseled. deep blue eyes, appraising those nearby.

Her hair is blood red and styled into several long braids that are adorned with several runes and trinkets from her homeland.She is tall and slender her long legs contribute towards the stately height of five feet two inches,very tall for an Elf.Her form is one of strength combined with slenderness and grace. her body is covered in scars and tyeduian runes in blue across her skin.

Equipment and clothing

Kiara is most often seen in a suit of modified plate mail of Red and blue and a long loincloth robe, her legs free but covered in a set of greaves and well worn boots. A large hooded greatcloak draped over one should and clasped with a wolfs head broach hangs from her.

Around her neck hangs a holy symbol of Ra-ghul. She is never seen with out a pair of long well crafted scimitar one on each hip. In battle she is seen to wear the Face of wrath, a helmet indicating her High position in the Fury of Ra-ghul.

Vaako SandFireStorm

Nimble looking halfling with white hair that is tied back. Most of the time hidden beneath a broad hat with a feather sticking out of that hat.
Around his wrist black and red tattoo's when ask about them, people get told they are to honor his mother.
The most prominent feature if you look at him are the daggers strapped almost every where on his body, around his waste a belt with daggers sticking out of them, on the backside these daggers seem to be crossed over and with some imagination you can make out the letter V. Same can be said for other part of his body out of his boots stick handles most likely also from daggers. This halfling sure must have a dagger fetish or he must be really well prepared.

Before in going into battle he change into his battle cloths, black clothing that is skin tight and almost looks like painted onto his body. And as always there are daggers.
It's good to be evil.

Bask in the angst-ridden awkwardness...

Ursula Seleivara

Ursula is a young avariel, a few inches shy of five feet tall (hard to tell how many inches as her boots have heels). She has long jet black hair, possibly dyed, usually pulled up into a high pony tail, and bangs frame her face. She is quite pale, even for some of her race, and her eyes are deep violet. She is very slender though shapely. Her wings, perhaps the first thing you would notice about her, are dark black and the tips are almost inky black.

She dresses in all black, head to toe, and often wears tight clothing. Short leather skirts, patterned tights, heeled high black boots, and form-fitting lace tops are all part of her usual look. She carries a black guitar strapped to her back and a black bow. She keeps a (you guessed it) black journal on her at all times and is often found with her nose buried inside. Her boots are almost always covered in grave dust and her fingers are often covered in ink or pencils. She wears dark eye makeup and blue tinted lipstick. She has one tattoo, which appears new, of marrowroot and musical notes encircling her right biceps.

She is painfully awkward in groups, shy, and tends to blush when the attention is turned towards her in any fashion. She is not at all unfriendly and does okay one-on-one, but seems to utterly lack confidence. Angsty and brooding if left alone to it, she will snap out of it when challenged to do something.

Edit added August 2016: Her usual old beat up black guitar has been replaced by a new guitar, a remarkable instrument of the finest quality, black lacquered with deep red underlay. She appears quite pleased when asked about it, almost enthusiastic...almost.
