Before I start, I would like to state that I am not new to roleplay, but I am newish to Kaldorei specific lore and roleplay. I am a lore-abiding, but not extremely strict in this. I do read and seek out lore on my own.

Some aspects of my character may not be lore fitting, I am working on it and willing to change to be more lore appropriate if those aspects are not within accepted lore.

Currently I have a good general Idea for my character’s background, though the exact details and lore correctness are still being worked out on my end.


Touch of Elune
OOC: What about the kaldorei inspires you, and what is your favorite thing about them?

Besides Orcs, as written about by Christie Golden, Kaldorei were my favorite units and story in Warcraft 3! Back in the days of 2002, not as a new player of Reforged. I have always been drawn to more nature and tribal based characters and lore. It just feels right!

IC: What memory has the most impact on your character's life, and does it drive them today?

He failed in his duties. He was assigned to guard the slumbering druids, and specifically his father. With the more current warfare, and his brash and impulsive nature, he decided to unwisely abandon his duties and went to fight on the front lines in Darkshore. This ultimately led to this father’s death, though Marsarias would likely have also died if he had been there. At some level he understands this, but denies that he father would have died either way. He holds himself, and Sylvanus, wholly at fault.


Quickness
OOC: Describe your dream job or the hobbies you most enjoy and why.

My dream job would be as a blacksmith. I have my grandfather's anvil, and when I was younger I spent much of my free time hammering away at that old heavily worn down anvil.
Life took me another direction though. At 18 I joined the military and spent four years as and active duty U.S. Army Soldier. I have deployed for those wondering.
After my time in the military I spent a long time adrift, eventually finding my wife! Now I am pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering.

IC: What skills can your character teach and do they have any hidden talents?

He has none! He may bluff and posture like he is some great warrior, but if put to the test by a truly seasoned warrior he would fall short very quickly.

As for a hidden talent, it would be his determination. Chop off his arms and legs, and he would bite you to death.


Nature Resistance
OOC: What personal strengths and weaknesses do you want to develop as a writer?

Personal strength, I feel that I keep my characters grounded and with flaws. Everything is more fun when you are not the master of all! I can be very creative, though not always!

Weakness, I type kinda slow. I usually play out a scenario or two in my head before committing to typing one out. It usually takes me quite a few interactions with a character before I feel that I have a good grasp on how they should act and behave.

IC: Name one thing you love about your character, and one thing you'd like to improve for them.

I like the idea of his (work in progress) background. I feel that it gives him a great drive and need to improve, but also makes him brash and overly impulsive. He needs to temper his mettle before he can really bring justice to the world.


Wisp Spirit
OOC: Describe your hopes and expectations for your ideal roleplay community.

Relaxed, free of excessive drama. I have a thick skin and joke and take jokes with the best of them.
A lore abiding roleplay community has become much more a personal need for me to continue roleplay. I feel that Wyrmrest Accord has very few such guilds left.

IC: Is your character spiritual, and what made them that way?

Undecided for certain. Though likely he is, and would more so once he gets over his own shame and grief.


Shadowmeld
OOC: Are you an introvert or extrovert, and what does your ideal get together consist of?

I am an introvert. I enjoy people, but for short bursts, and in smaller crowds or gatherings. Too many people talking all at once, or about more than a few topics sets me on edge for some reason. The same generally goes for RP as well, if too many people are typing all at once and I have trouble keeping up with that current story I may step away.

IC: Does your character like going on adventures or would they prefer to stay home and relax, why?

He would most definitely be the adventurous type. After the death of his father, and the burning of Teldrassil he has no true home.

For his shame, and dishonor, he has taken up a fake name and set about to sell his blade, and bluster, to whoever will pay and let him kill Horde.

Hooah! Will be nice to have another soldier about ;)

I rather enjoyed your entry, the IC one being of great interest as it's always fun to see what direction a character can go and what they can learn along the way. I suppose the better word is "potential". Keep an eye on our calendar for our roleplay events and hope to see you around more!

It seems that soldiers make up a large portion of the RP community, or at least I keep bumping into them at any rate.

I'll be around more! I just have a conflicting schedule with another guild, The Order of the Silver Hand, which I am an officer in. Our event times are also on Mon, Wed, Sat. However, I see that the Silver Circle often has event times on Sun and Fri, so I should be able to attend those, and other spontaneous RP.

I know we barely "met", even if we never introduced ourselves, but I wanted to say I absolutely LOVED the way you played Marsarius last night! <3
