William Adolphe Homer (He generally just goes by his last name, Homer)
Yin and Yang
Although dressed a lot differently...
Homer was raised in a monastery, where he went through very harsh and almost cruel training to gain spiritual enlightenment and combat ability. This training left him a cold and generally apathetic towards most things. If he showed his true personality he would probably be a man more fear/hated than liked, but throughout his life he has always shown an incredible talent for dissembling, putting on whatever face he needs to to get things done. He takes pride in his ability to manipulate people and conceal his true motives, the only person who would know how he truely is would be Genzo.
He is also, having been raised in a monastery to them, a loyal servant to Yin and Yang. The only true motivation he has, aside from obvious personal gain, would be serving them. He and Genzo decided on their own to take on the task of restoring balance and peace to allaria as they hope their gods wish... It is because of this that they both used their talents to start and lead this rebellion, while they really aren't sympathetic to the people of allaria and don't really hold an opinion towards the apostheoses (aside from not liking their rebellion towards the gods), they ultimately are doing what would be considered best for the people of allaria.
Burro, the raccoon king.
A giant (8ft tall) and slightly overweight raccoon who is always wearing a magnificent acorn crown and carrying around a oak scepter.
Palace of the Raccoon King.
The weapons he carries vary, considering he is skilled with a wide variety of weaponry. He wears light armor if any. Whatever it is he is using, he would have relatively high quality equipment, considering his position in the rebellion. He and Genzo also have several magical artifacts in their possession that may come in to play later.
Homer has received extensive training in weapon usage for both melee and ranged combat. He would have highly advanced skill in the usage of all common weapons (swords, bows, axes, spears, ect.) along with many uncommon weapons. He also has been trained in the martial arts style popular among tengu.
He just couldn't be a good leader if he didn't have a way with people...
Inspiring/Captivating Presence: The true secret of Homer's charisma is a magical aura that is always surrounding him, which he isn't even aware of. It gives him a noticeable air of dominance and like-ability that couldn't be achieved without magic. It does not effect peoples minds to the point of mind control, but any sort creature, no matter their personality, that comes close enough (probably about 20-50ft) to him would have a hard time not noticing or liking him. Because of this most animals will choose to not attack him or even befriend/protect him unless provoked otherwise. This aura combined with his abilities of persuasion makes him a perfect leader to rally people to a cause (and motivate them in combat).
- Advanced skill with most weapons out there
- Incredible charisma and ability to rally/inspire the masses
- Born leader
- Skilled in dissembling an conceal his true motives
- Training left him with a high resolve for pain
- Agile, flexible, and strong as a motherfucker
- Animals tend to like him
- His aura makes it hard for him to really go anywhere where there are people around unnoticed and makes stealth relatively impossible for him because he cannot conceal his presence.
- He is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve his goal... His true goal being to restore balance to allaria, not to liberate the people from the apostheoses.
- Animals are attracted to him if they are within range of his aura, although most won't attack him... They might not be so friendly if there are people with him.
- He has spent nearly all of his life in a monastery separated from the rest of the world... He might not have the best knowledge of how things work.
When he was four he was brought to a monastery for worshipers of Yin and Yang; there he lived secluded from the rest of the realm, surrounded mostly by Tengu. For the over thirty years he lived there, he went through intense physical and spiritual training which left him with most of the skills he possesses now. About six months from the start of the quest, he and Genzo decided that they were meant to serve Yin and Yang through leaving the monastery and restoring balance to the realm... the best way they could see to do that was to liberate Allaria from the apostheoses.
She has black fur, with various silver streaks through it. She stands at about 6' with a more athletic build. Her eyes are a brilliant shade of silver with blue specks in it.
She is cunning and very tricky, she only seems to care about herself and herself alone.
Spirit Animal: Anur she is a medium sized panther.
A pine forest.
Tooth and Claw
She is a very good huntress capable of following even the most faint of trails. This has allowed her to survive several of the times when the rest of pack was starving.
She is capable of using an ancient form of wind magic.
She is physically strong capable of lifting at most 145lbs. Anything larger then that she cannot lift.
She is very fast, although due to her lack of stamina she cannot move at her peak speed for very long. *Peak speed is roughly 45mph*
She has limited stamina due to her preferring ambush techniques. She has not had to run for extended periods time resulting in her having less stamina then most of her kind.
She can only channel the wind magic for a maximum of 5min otherwise she'll collapse from exhaustion.
While she was a pup she saw a vision of a chained animal. As she grew up the visions continued to haunt her, she tried to make the vision leave her. But every time she made them go away, they would return all the worse. Leaving her almost breathless.
Huntress: *Was asked to explain what exactly a Huntress is*
A huntress is a female version of a hunter. They typically prefer to use ambush techniques as they are smaller physically then the male-counter part. However, a huntress is typically more agile and capable of out-maneuvering the male counterpart. The huntress is basically a wasp. They maneuver quickly, avoid damage and wait for the opportune moment to deliver the killing shot.
Dialogue Color: A variety of colors
Post Sample: (Can be a link, or a freshly written piece)
She could see the deer tracks, it was close. Her steely blue eyes were glued on her prey, she could taste the flesh of her deer. She extenders her claws out waiting for the moment to happen. She moves silently waiting, the deer raises it's head turning to look around for any threat to it's life. She waits...then she leaps into the air crashing into the deer. Her claws dug into the flesh of the deer tearing it out. She then bites into the deers neck tearing it out drinking in the creatures last moments. Her eyes dart around looking to see if anyone would come across her kill. With none coming she stands up letting out her ferocious howl. For the past 5 years she'd been living by herself. Her old pack had all but died out. Leaving her alone in solitude.

Name: Borus Clay
Appearance: 3'7''. Long partly-braided brown hair with a partly braided brown beard. Muscular. Very pale. Has a tattoo above his right eye that marks hm as a very skilled teramancer.
Personality: Generic dwarf personality. A funloving drinker who is also a battle loving warrior. The many years he spent constructing the tunnels has left him very intelligent and wise, at least in regards to that. In recent years he has become a bit of an alcoholic and has a taste for brothels.
Spirit Animal: Giant Carnivorous Mole
Spirit World: Endless tunnel
Equipment: Mining/climbing gear, map of all mapped regions of of dwarven civilization. Short Sword.
Major: Dwarven Tunnel Navigation: He has spent many years in the underground civilization of the dwarves and knows most areas there like the back of his hand, even many
Minor: Construction: He is a master of dwarven construction
Magic: Teramancy: Allows him to mold earth to his will. Used primarily to quickly construct buildings or clear out tunnels but it is a very versitile form of magic.
Strengths: Master Teramancer, Incredible Knowledge of dwarven tunnels/engineering, relatively skilled in combat, high tolerance for alcohol and poisons.
Weaknesses: Not agile, very little knowledge of the world above ground, a drunk
History: Born in Balmourg, Borus showed an incredible talent for teramancy at an early age. In his teens he bagan working in the tunnels. After several close calls he earned a reputation among the miners and was eventually inducted into a special order of teramancers, for which he recieved the tattoo above his eye. He retired from mining at 50 to live a more relaxed life, supporting himself by doing odd jobs and spending most of his time in bars or brothels.
Name: Genzo Mallku
Class: Tactician/Martial Artist
God: Yin and Yang
Only he also has two humanoid arms.
He is old and wise but,at the same time, his personality is much like Homers, although he lacks the ability to effectively conceal his apathy and coldness from most. Also, he has a distinct air of confidence about him that could only come from incredible skill in battle... Just looking at him, most would be able to tell that he is not someone to be trifled with.
A living/hopping lantern.
Just ignore all the spirited away characters in thar ;D
Spirit World: The eternal staircase... an endless crystal staircase surrounded by complete darkness.
Equipment: He carries very little on him and, much like Homer, the equipment he carries will vary widely depending on the situation.
Weapons Mastery: Much like Homer, he has received vary intense training with a wide variety of weaponry... Although where Homer is only 38, Genzo has had hundreds of years to sharpen his skills. Even against the most dangerous of enemies, defeating him would be an incredible challenge.
Wisdom/Tactics: He is old and has been involved in many military conflicts. He is wise and knows more than most about the art of war. Homer trusts him as the tactical leader of the rebellion.
Transfiguration: Genzo has the ability to alter the form or appearance of an object, via the alteration of the object's molecular structure. He can do this to nearly any, if not all objects if given enough time and concentration to complete the transformation. Through training he has expanded this ability to the point of being able to transform objects in to animals or even to undo the transformations when the object is nowhere near him. The most common way he implements this is through transforming a letter in to a bird or some other form of messenger animal, which then travels to the person the letter is meant to go to, then, once the animal reaches its target, returning it back in to a letter.
It is still undetermined as to what extent this power can go to, but one thing Genzo knows for sure is that the magic does not effect living targets, unless the targets were objects to begin with that he then transformed in to a creature.
+He is a complete badass when it comes to combat, melee or ranged.
+He is Agile and strong as a motherfucker
+He has an incredible resolve for pain
+He is very wise and is a skilled tactician
+Fire....... He is really REALLY bad with fire.... that would be his most viable combat weakness. He also isn't too good if his wings are wet... it just fucks up his mojo completely.
+He holds the same apathetic attitude as Homer, but lacks the skill Homer has to conceal it... Because of that he would be pretty much the opposite of Homer as far as charisma.
+He is probably one of the strongest people involved with the rebellion... But if something were to happen to him, the rebellion would be crippled and Homer would probably abandon his quest right after avenging his master's death. So this guy goes down, two of the rebellion's leaders are out.
He wandered a lot in his younger years, but eventually settled in the monastery. There he lived for several hundred years before Homer arrived. He oversaw most of Homer's training. Eventually he and Homer both agreed that they were meant to serve Yin and Yang through restoring balance to the realm. (Refer to Homer's CS for slightly more info on Genzo)
