Very well done CS, Zephyr! You've got a great character going on there. Accepted~Name: Raelius “Rae” Tyr
Race: Human, Caucasian
Background: Raelius was born and raised in a city far to the north, known as Teuran. Teuran is not a particularly rich, nor an impoverished, city. Most of its wealth is derived from lumber trading, as it is located at the edge of an abundant forest. Relius became an officer of the Teuran City Guard at the age of nineteen. At age twenty, he found a beautiful wife, by the name of Lizaben, and had a daughter, named Helena two years later.
One season ago, a terrible plague, known only as the Affliction, befell the city of Teuran. Within a fortnight, over half of the city had died of the Affliction. By the next fortnight, Teuran had fallen to complete anarchy. The surviving lower class of the city and the infected began indiscriminately burning homes and tearing the city apart in hysteria. As a loyal member of the Guard, he did his best to keep the peace, but to no avail.
One cold night, little more than a month ago, Raelius was held up from completing his rounds by a small group of bandits attempting to raid a merchant’s weekly shipment. The fight was four-to-one, but Raelius managed to kill three of them. The forth, however, was much more skilled, and seemed to be the leader of the group. He carried an exceptionally large sword, which he swung with ease, and wore a dark cloak that overshadowed his face. Raelius managed to wound the man, but with injury to himself as well. The marauder retreated and Raelius made his way home.
By the time he arrived, however, flames had engulfed the entirety of his home, with his wife and child inside. In front of the burning property, there was a single note, pinned in the dirt by the villain’s blade. The note read: “Follow your hope and hated and you shall find me.”
Personality: Raelius is very quiet and reserved. He says only things he finds necessary to say, and is not one for rhetoric.
Occupation: Officer of the Teuran City Guard.
Power/Weapon: Carries a six-foot-long, seven-inch-wide English Claymore. Currently knows no magic.
Weakness:Emotional – Raelius is very emotionally attached to the memories of his beloved family. The possibility of bringing them back only strengthens this bond.
Physical – Raelius’s fighting technique focuses mainly on brute strength, considering his weapon. He can move at a decent pace, but is not particularly agile.
Dislikes/Fears: Raelius fears very little, since he has already lost everything. Whether he lives or dies matters little to him; either way he will be reunited with his wife and daughter.
Wish: Resurrection of Lizaben and Helena.
Other: He hates ignorance. Because reasons.
