I'll join in... just joined this site so thought why not, this was second on the list and it looks fun
Name: Xaren (Ser-ren is it's pronunciation... I just looked up dragon age names and changed a letter or two...)(No last name, might invent one later, if he gets annoyed with people adding no-name to his name)
Age: Roughly 16
Appearance: Tanned skin, Black hair and green eyes. A hunted, almost feral look comes and leaves unbidden by Xaren. He prefers to wear darker colors or colors that blend with the area. He is 5' 5" 150 Lbs. His features are average, though the scars don't help him his appearance. There is one nasty purple scar on his right cheek, ranging from the bridge of his nose down to his jaw bone. He has countless old, white scars on his back also.
Personality: Introverted but not shy. It is hard to gain trust as he is used to trusting no one, but if you earn his trust and respect, he'll die for you. Cold and calculated externally, until he believes he is in a safe area.
Back story time!!!: Xaren grew on the streets of Redmoor's cities, begging, stealing, pick pocketing, and doing odd jobs. Anything to survive. If the guards caught on to him, he would just leave with a trade caravan to a new city, allowing things to cool down and come back whenever he wanted. He had forgotten about his parents long ago. His father was a drunk and his mother did whatever jobs she could find. One day his father killed his mother in a fit, then the guards took him away and confiscated the house and everything in it. The orphanages were poor and if Xaren got caught during some mischief, the penalties would be a day's meal being skipped and a beating. He took it upon himself to leave and find himself food. He learned how to cut purses without people noticing, how to fake wounds, when and how to move to avoid attention, all things street brats learn to live. He failed as often as he succeed, giving him his back scars, but he learned. One day, a guard caught him stealing knives from a stall,and the guard and owner gave him a particularly rough beating. During this time is when he received his face scar. Halfway through, he got up and tore the guards arm off at the elbow. He was restrained quickly after that and after a lengthy discussion with some paladins, the guards handed him over to be sent to the tower. He is under strict orders to behave by the paladins, and since they saved his life, he feels it is obligation to follow them. he also looks up to them.
Skills: Basic steps, hiding, silent movement, stealing (not overpowered, just basics... cause these could easily be OP, the hiding and movement are for leaving places, not for information gathering...)
Magic: Physical Augmentation, minor healing(not very good at it but strives for it)
Tell me if there's anything to edit, I based it off of dragon age but some things might be a bit... too far, I couldn't think of a better physical magic awakening... also I'm assuming this is after the dragon age series so the physical magic was spread again...
EDIT: I noticed on the basic CS sheet that it was 16-19... that gets rid of the 13-15 idea... bit better this way, he'll have completed what he could have done as a street rat and would have joined something as a thug/knife soon so the tower would be an easy transition... sort of... Also added to the description, which I might do more after this prompt I have to write... Also changed combat magic to Physical Augmentation to make it more clear
