Finished app

Character Application


Name: Gideon Half-Elven, Gideon of Achisia
Age: 57
Gender:Male
Sexual Orientation: Not interested.
Race: Human/Elf Hybrid
Appearance: Image
5'11, approximately 145 lbs. Gideon looks about fifteen years younger than he actually is.


Position/Status/Affiliation: Outcast. Wanderer. Scholar. Gideon never stays in one place for long. He is a skilled cartographer, translator, and historian by trade. Will occasionally forge documents for the right price.
Skills/Powers//Magic: Oath magic. As a warrior may sit down nightly to lovingly hone and polish a fine blade, so has Gideon spent his life training his mind to wield that eldritch energy that flows through every being. Having detached himself from material joys and earthly pleasures he has become a conduit between that which is seen and that which is unseen, able to channel the raw power of the primeval. He seeks to master the power of the ancients, that old magic that could drive a man insane and destroy his body. To what end is known only to Gideon.
Equipment: Parchment. Ink. Quill. Spotlight lantern. Oil. Rope (50 ft). Traveling robes. Worn leather boots. Fine shoes. Silk robes. Tomes. Scrolls. Wineskin. Tinderbox. Ornate dagger. Sigil. Pipe. Tobacco. Incense. Spell components.


Personality: Driven. Condescending. Secretive. He is loyal to no one and no thing, but he always pays his debts and keeps his promises. Feels superior to others, and feels an affinity to the dwarves more than to either of his progenitor's races.

Moral Alignment: Chaotic neutral.

Biography: Gideon's father was one of the Children of the Sun, of an ancient line even by Vorian standards. He kept many slaves. One of these slaves was Gideon's mother. He knew neither. Before her pregnancy could be discovered, she was able to escape. This is quite a tale in itself, but altogether irrelevant. Gideon was later born in Arghyo. His mother gave the boy to her sister and disappeared from his life forever.

The woman who raised him, a human named Majira Caros, was kind but strict. He was given chores and lessons daily. When he was not dusting shelves or tending the garden, he studied history. When he wasn't gathering components for her spells or tending to Majira in her laboratory, Gideon learned of politics and the geography that shaped his world.

As he grew older, Majira taught him to meditate upon the mysteries of mana and it's many uses. She eventually took Gideon as her apprentice after he demonstrated his aptitude and natural inclination towards the arcane arts and other pursuits of the mind.

He left Arghyo on a journey to Achisia, which was prospering. Here he further studied magic and becamr associated with several different academies. Gideon witnessed the decline of Achisia into darkness firsthand. By the time he was a master of the Oath, Achisia was marching on the other realms of men, and he left, wanting no part in the wars to come.

Gideon returned to Arghyo. Majira had passed during his time away and left him as the sole beneficiary of her will, which included the estate he had grown up in as well as a small inheritance. When Achisia fell, Gideon left again to study the darkness that had taken hold of the once shining empire, determined to find a link between the Shadow, the Blight, and the ruin of Achisia.

Goals: Mastering of the arcane arts. Exploration of the Shadow. Immortality.
Theme Song: Right in Two


RP Sample: This RP never took off. My post is at the bottom viewtopic.php?f=31&t=429594&start=200
Did you read the Rules?: Yes

Well, I will be going to sleep soon, as I said, I'll try to review all the apps tomorrow. And the IC should follow shortly after.

Those who have no plans for the IC should just say something, either here or through a TG, we will be forming groups of characters wherever possible!

And the roleplay itself will always remain open to new players.

Hmm, I'm not sure what he could do, but we'll think about it. As I said, I'll properly review apps tomorrow, but I noticed something - it's Arghyo, not Arghyos.

Just curious, is there any organization or group that has the reputation of being noble and honourable when in reality there's plenty of corruption behind the seams?

Well essentially Gideon is a morally ambiguous wizard driven by an ambition for a deeper knowledge of the arcane and the mystery of the Shadow and the Blight. He would throw in his lot with anybody he thought would further his own goals for power and knowledge. Let me know if anything else in the app sticks out/needs to be edited.

Hmm.. that's a good question. The Scriptures have the reputation of being noble and honorable, but some people already clearly know to that corruption is everywhere among their ranks - even if the normal people would have no idea.

I don't think that we have a group that has been able to maintain such a reputation without any shade of doubt, besides from the Paladins, but their reputation is true.

I mean, my characters can meet up with yours in a city or something and work together for a while.

Sure, we should brainstorm how that happens and towards what end we are working. Let me take a look at your characters

Or well, now that I think about it, there actually is a group like that, with a noble and honorable reputation but that is actually corrupt. The issue however is that none of the players or the characters knows it.

Kek.
You sure? That could be 12 apps or so still left to be reviewed.

Granted, most of them are absolute shit.

I can tell you if you want. It's part of the super secret major plot that might never actually happen.

I've just had another idea for a character..

But I probably won't have time for it.

And it would be a character who sent through a lot of sufferings.. and I don't like that.

I'll send you a small comic I just found, tomorrow. It's easier than trying to explain the idea :p

And then there's me. I always end up making characters with dark backstories and some level of suffering. Be it due to a morbid curiosity with such things, or perhaps my masochistic tendencies. Though there's always a decent chance I end up reading it and feeling sorry for the character I've just written.

On a relevant note, the trap character I'm making is using the appearance of a character from a game, who according to what I've read, has some severe psychological problems and ends up hanging himself.

I really should feel sorry for my characters, 'cause some of them... oh boy have I screwed them over. And sometimes I do. But most of the time, I don't.
