Name: Conrad Almerion (human, 34)
Class: Soldier -Special Ops
Appearance: Conrad has all the physical traits one would expect from a soldier. He is rather big, measuring 6ft2, and has a muscular build. Like a proper soldier, he keeps his dark-blond hair cut short and his face cleanly shaven. He has grayish-blue eyes residing rather deep in his eye-sockets. He has a powerful chin and his cheecks are rather gaunt, emphasising his cheeckbones.
He selects clothes based on how comfortable they are and their usefulness rather then fashion. He will mostly be seen wearing trousers and vests with many pockets and wearing a belt around his weight. In civil environments, he wears a long black overcoat.
History: Conrad was born the first son of a city-guard and the daughter of an innkeeper. He was mostly raised by his mother, as his father was often called for watch-duty. His family lived in the inn of his grandfather, conveniently situated in the military district. Being one of the few inns in the district, they have a large clientèle yet they have to pay high alcohol taxes -the city frowns upon drunken soldiers.
Hearing the many stories the guards loved to tell, Conrad had soon become interested in becoming a guard himself. At the age of ten he had found the guts to ask his father to teach him how to fight. He has been training ever since , with both his father and regular clients of the inn, and has become rather skilled in melee combat.
At the age of eightteen he enlisted into the army of Arxie. He proved to be a very skilled soldier during his training and was praised by many of his instructors. He was mostly noted for his discipline and responsible behavior.
However, soon after his training had been completed, reality hit him hard: the guards didn't go out on expedition, they only guarded the city-walls and patrolled its streets.
After three years, he decided to leave the corps and enlisted in one of the adventurer guilds. There he received Special Ops training. Though he had initial difficulties, an undiscovered fear of heights, he persevered and succeeded in his training, cum laude. He had proven to be an excellent scout and a good shot.
Conrad has been a valued adventurer ever since. He was often enlisted for borderland expeditions where his fieldskills proved to be very useful. Over the years he has made a very good living. He had brought home many spoils of war and had received good payments from the guild for the missions he had completed. He still has a home in the military district and has an arrangement with the city guard so he can store his weaponry in their depots, as the possession and carrying of arms is forbidden in the district.
Conrad is highly respected within the military district. People know his reputation as an excellent soldier and his past as a guard has caused the other guards to still see him as one of them. Though it is limited, he has permission to the arms depots and is often given the authority to use small military hardware.
Personality: Conrad is always serious and disciplined. He rarely shows any excessive emotions and frowns upon loud people. He tends to choose his words carefully and isn't afraid to appologise should he ever offend anyone.
Having witnessed many combat situations, Conrad has lost more comrades than he would love to. This has led him to adopt a state of ever-awareness for danger. He has also learned to avoid comfrontations when they aren't necessary and one shall rarely see him start a fight. When being assaulted however, he strikes back without any mercy and has a "kill or be killed" attitude.
Though Conrad is very open-minded and acceptive to nearly all, he frowns upon half-orcs and is reluctant to work with them.
