For this roleplay, I'm looking for some creative; as such, there is no basic outline for a character, nor is there a general outline for your character. As long as your character is relevant to the Roleplay, you can be as creative as you'd like (Note: I may still decline characters whom I deem not suitable to the roleplay, so take the creativity I'm giving you with a grain of salt). If you struggle, use my character sheet below as an example:
Appearance: Lanius gives of an intimidating presence, standing at slightly over six foot in height, with an athletic frame gained from years of military service. His hair falls to his neck, a deep chestnut brown to complement his eyes and natural dark complexion. His jaw appears almost chiseled, with a few various scars covering his body from wounds, both gained in battle and self inflicted. His is the spitting image of his father, which he loathes about himself, to the point that he rarely looks at himself in the mirror.
Personality: Lanius is a strong minded individual; if he wants something, he becomes obsessed with the thought of it until it is his. His is malicious, cunning, and very dangerous. As a King, he demands respect from those around him, and rarely shows any sign of weakness. He is extremely confident in himself, to the point that he openly allows anyone to challenge him in combat, to which he has yet to lose.
History:Lanius. Self proclaimed King and Ruler of the Kingdom of Taethil. Born thirty-eight years ago, under the rule of his father, Thedric, Lanius was never destined for the thrown; that duty belonged to his brother, Francis II, whom Lanius held a deep hatred for as long as he could remember. His father, Thedric, saw Lanius for what he was; a malicious, calculating, cunning and vengeful man, whom would stop at nothing to get what he wants. Because of this, he declared his son unfit to be apart of his Court, and instead, had him placed within the ranks of Taethils Legion at the mere age of twelve. Whilst his father had hoped this would give his troubled son a sense of order and respect, it did very little in terms of changing his character; instead, he learnt how to fight with the best that Taethil had to offer. His skills in armed combat, as well as unarmed, excelled above his peers, as did his knowledge of war. At the age of twenty-two, Lanius held the rank of General within the Legionnaire forces, as respected as he was feared by the men under his command, for his willingness to fight the enemy head on without fear.
Lanius was never satisfied by his position in the Legion; he had aspirations, and dreams. While he fought, his brother took the thrown, a just and fair King, one that Taethil needed. Lanius loathed this, and his hatred for his Brother grew day by day. Eventually, at the age of twenty-eight, Lanius lead his Legionnaire force to the capital city of Cadean, where he stormed the Spire that his brother sat atop, in a seige of blood and steel, which ultimately lead to him removing his brother from the very thrown of Taethil itself, plunging his sword into his brothers heart personally. From that day forth, with noone to challenge his right to the Throne, he declared himself ruler of Taethil, a position his father had desperately tried to prevent him gaining.
For the past ten years, Lanius has held the Throne with an iron fist; he killed those who challenge him, exiled those who opposed him, and imprisoned those who disrespected him.
Then, the mist came to the lands, claiming the Kingdom to the East. With his land threatened, Lanius is hell-driven to preserve his order and ensure his claim to the throne, no matter what the cost.
Skills: After years in the Legion, Lanius is an incredibly talents fighter, more than capable of holding his own in a fight. He is also a natural born leader, capable of manipulating those around him to suit his purpose.
Fears: Lanius has but one fear, and it is losing everything he has dedicated himself to creating.
Prejudices: Lanius isn't fond of the people of Olaello, deeming them a threat to his rule. Because of this, he openly opposes their presence in his Court, and has gone as far as to exile them from Cadean.
I'm running late as I write this, so my character sheet is slightly rushed. Also, this may not be my only character, but I'll decide that later.
