I would say elves are the least populated, particularly ones from Athela. Though fair warning they might be somewhat unpopular :P plenty of other factions like the Merry Men of the Vine, the Keepers of the Glass, the Enchanter's order are currently unrepresented

Ah, I think I'll do an Athelan elf, then.

@Skygg

I'd probably handle it in recap if possible, save Prax's stories of it for part of the RP. Just TG me what you have leading up to the collapse, and I'll add on after.

Also Tom, who won at Eckers, or was it a draw?

I imagine the battle was quite catastrophic. 3-way medieval warfare is not pretty.

I'm thinking of making a high-ranking member of the Guardians of Light who may have been present at Eckers - Can I help?

(On a related note - Tomia, how separate are the Guardians from the standard Athelan military? Would they remain a domestic policing force, or fight and/or command troops in actual battles?)

If you do that we may be able to say that our characters have fought before.

I would say they are mostly domestic special forces, but they some of them would be on the front line if the army needed purifiers

Not necessarily relevant but something I wanted to know--does Alchemy count as magic for the purposes of things like "X race can't use magic, magic is very rare for Y", and so on? Just stuck out to me.

Since Magic involves directly creating and manipulating magika while Alchemy and Runesmithing only involve manipulating naturally-occurring magika, I'd say they're distinct in that regard - Elves are stated to be unable to create/manipulate magika, but I don't see a reason they couldn't make a few mixes or an enchanted weapon.

That said, I don't know if it would be accepted in Athelan society - that would be something to ask our OP.

Alchemy and runesmithing are not magic in the sense that you do not need to be a mage to use them. I would say that Athela uses things like runesmith and alchemy for military purposes but its highly regulated

Well, I figure the Shi'el mostly fight the jaguars and caracals from the southernmost part of the Wastes, so probably not as badly as if he were one of those :P In any case though, even if she reacts negatively it wouldn't be with hate - I figure most beastfolk understand that things in nature kill each other all the time.

Probably. Like I said, the Wastes are violent because that's just their nature.

Name: Tenna
Age: 25
Gender: F
Race: Elf
Appearance: Image This, but with the weapons more concealed. FC is Marisiel from Pathfinder.
Mage?: Not in the slightest
Bio : Tenna was originally born Tennasir, a lively child growing up in the slums of Southport. The young elvish girl partook in many games common for those of her ilk: pickpocketing passerby, hide and seek, and avoiding the gaze of those in power. It turned out, however, that she was very poor at that latter. You see, even from a young age Tenna (she never bothered to write her full name) felt drawn to small blades, be it daggers, butcher's knives, or even whittling tools. Whilst her fascination had gotten her into a spot of trouble, she always had managed to get out of it just as easily as she got in. That is, of course, until she couldn't.

The dagger, to be fair, was glorious to behold, and she still possessed it to this day. The designs on the blade flowed and spiraled like a river, whilst the golden hit was decorated with a karp, two rubies where the eyes were kept. It was slightly curved at the tip, clearly more for decorative reasons than anything useful, and a small vein of blue shined through the center of the pristine, lethal steel. It's sheathe was nothing special, as it was more to show off the prize than anything else, and just so happened to always be on the person of a wealthy young merchant's child. That is, until Tenna tried to *ahem* liberate it.

She was caught, of course, by the rich boy. The child begged his father not to kill the poor girl, as he had needed a new playmate for quite some time. The father reluctantly agreed, and Tenna was bound, gagged, and taken to their mansion.

It was here, late at night, that the white haired elf's live changed drastically. Some could argue for the better, others for the wise, but all could agree that the turning point began after everyone had gone to bed. Everything, that is, except the young boy. He had a cruel streak in him that could only be defined as mad, and a streak of intelligence that could only be described as.....highly lacking. It was a bad combination, as he failed to understand why the girl distressed so when he cut at her arms and bit at her flesh. The girl retaliated, spitting and clawing in return. The boy decided then that this toy wouldn't last, and got his trusty knife.

There is something to be said about Tenna's luck, as she was saved purely by the young merchants equal parts naivete and stupidity. He cut her neck, but did not even pierce the trachea, instead slashing away her vocal chords in such a manner as that they would never heal. She bit at him once more, then, taking him by surprise before he could go in for another cut. In her adrenaline infused mind and his shock she wretched the prize from his hand. She, however, brought the blade home, and the young boy died without a sound.

Tenna ran, then, out of the mansion. She fled from the city, and in time from the country altogether. It was there that the street crawlers found her and took her in, feeling pity for the now starved and delirious child. In time they would raise her to be one of them, and hone her already natural skills. She became so adept in fact, that she founded her own group within the street crawlers in the city of Varum. She also takes jobs for spying, smuggling, and scouting for those who do not go against her morals and pay the right fee be it coin, goods, or information. Her own information is what brought her to this adventure, hoping to glean or cause the death or defeat of anyone that may be of use to her at...The Battle of Haden Hill.
Fighting Style : Medium and close range medley of small weapon styles, primarily knives, with a touch of ambush tactics
Abilities:
  • [Dexterous Accuracy]: With a blade, can clip the wings of a butterfly leaving the bugs body in tact
  • [Stealth]: Adept in camouflage, disguising herself, and quick getaways
  • [Child of the streets]: Adept at pickpocketing, keeping an eye out for danger, and concealing small items. Like, say, knives.
  • [Espionage]: Adept at entering areas she shouldn't be, finding information she shouldn't get, and leaving without people suspecting her.
  • [Secret Sign Language]: For a select few she trusts or for those under her, she teaches them a coded sign language where she can communicate, which utilizes body language and hand motions used in every day life to disguise that there is any communication at all.

Limitations:
  • Very Little Armor. Can't move fast or hide well in something bulky. Most she has is a hide shirt.
  • Long Range: She's not an archer, and she can't throw a knife much farther than 50 feet.
  • Physically Average: She is fit, but her strength is traded off for manueverability and seeming mostly harmless.
  • Mute. Her voice box was utterly destroyed, and thus can only really click her tongue and whistle.

Equipment:
  • [Knifeaggedon] Tenna has upon her, at any given time, 10-20 concealed blades for various purposes. She also collects them, and will generally retrieve them.
  • [Chalk] For writing or making pictures.
  • [Paper and quill]As above
  • [Glass Metsubushi] The "black egg", a small breakable container filled with sand, shards of glass, smoke pellets, or just the foul smelling odor of a rotten egg and that which causes it. Used primarily for escaping or disorienting an opponent.


Optional Questionnaire
Personal Quest: Upheave corruption. Claims to want to make a people's state (though views Faefnir's faithful with equal regard to the npbles), but is mostly doing so to aid people that were in the position she was once in.
Favorite Factions: The Street Crawlers
Least Favorite Factions: The Ruling nobles, merchants, etc of Southrun
Favorite Memory: Many combined memories of a kind elven woman who would give her and other street rats sweets, pies being her favorite.
Goals: Save orphans, change the world, collect 10,000 knives, learn how to make a good sweet pie. Simple stuff.
Greatest Fear: Drowning. Due to this, she will not swim through any fast moving water deeper than her knees, nor through any slow or still water deeper than her.
Religion:Faefnir primarily from the pantheon, though she's not fond of the faction.
