Shabel-Grah

Postby Magus » Wed Apr 06, 2005 8:30 pm

I guess I'll start this off with copying my characters from the other site.

SHABEL-GRAH
-----------------

Shabel-Grah is a Necromancer/Cleric. He is of a race that has all but died out, almost but not quite human. There are only three distinct characteristics of this race that differ them from human. Every child is gifted in magic, they are always born as twins, and only one of those twins ever has a soul.

Shabel-Grah has a soul. His brother, Sabal-Gah, does not. They look almost identical when standing next to each other. Shabel-Grah is about six foot three inches tall. He is of a sturdy yet slim build. He has sky blue eyes and a short brown beard. He wears a full length silk crimson robe unadorned by any symbol, with a hood that can completely cover his face. Underneath he keeps numerous potions of varying natures in vials of varying shape, size and color. He has a magical dagger on his side, black and silver handle with a long curved crimson blade. Whenever this blade is thrown and embedds itself into something it immediately dissapears and reappears in his hand. He has a brown leather drawstring bag containing several items. The greatest among these are three scrolls of powerful magic spells that are unknown until they are cast and a map that shows the owner exactly where they desire to go (places, not people).

His brother, Sabal-Gah, killed both of his parents and burned their home to the ground when Shabel-Grah was only eleven years old. Shabel-Grah escaped and faced off against his brother and fought him. Seeing that they were equally matched and would come to a draw Sabal-Gah fled to find the fabled Jewels of Orceth to make himself more powerful and manage to kill his brother. Shabel-Grah went to his master, a wise and famed necromancer, and recieved the map and scrolls from him.

He travelled and met Jacatour on his way. He came to the Jewel too late. Sabal-Gah had already taken it. They fight again and it is again a draw. Sabal-Gah left to find the third and final jewel in a tomb near Avanoor.

Jacatour

Postby Magus » Wed Apr 06, 2005 8:31 pm

JACATOUR
------------------

Jacatour is a Half-Orc, a Rolc. He doesn't share the same lineage as most Rolcs, however. His mother was raped by an orc who lead a raid on her village, burning it and everyone in it to the ground. She gave birth to Jacatour. About a week later she flung him into the nearby river before hanging herself.

He grew up among a group of Nomadic Barbarians. He adopted their simple and honest, honor-bound mentality. When he came of age he left them, promising to return and tell of his adventures and good deeds.

He left and came to two warring factions, a human kingdom and an orc tribe. There he met Aliandra, a beautiful woman in the human kingdom. He fell in love with her and, after much trial and error, married her. This union made the humans respect him also, after some tention, trial and error.

Yissam Snizwatt, his full Orc half brother, came to know of him. He came for him at dawn and demanded that he join his brothers in arms. He declines and they battled. Aliandra was stirred by the sounds and came out to see what was the matter. Yissam Snizwatt killed her in hopes that he would change his mentality, then left for Jacatour to contemplate his fate.

In a fury he rouses the men and leads them to one last battle against the orcs, which they won. Yissam escaped with a company of his best men, but stalks him and tries to convert him back to his orcish nature. Jacatour constantly seeks him out in order to avenge the death of his true love.

Along the way he met Shabel-Grah and joins him. They become great deep friends, and Thomas too.

He is over seven feet tall. He has green hair all over his body, forest green and coarse. His head hair is braided into thin yet long strands and have maroon string intertwined with it. He has no armor on him, wearing only tanned leather pants and a dark forest green cloak.

He has two famed katanas, which he named the brother's fury, held in black sheaths in his black leather belt. They are identical, crimson hilts with milky white blades. Both blades have an identical inscription on them. In fine golden runes the words "In the name of justice, yee not guilty".

He follows his own moral compass and does what he believes to be the right thing to do, whether or not it's illegal is society's problem.

Sabal-Gah

Postby Magus » Wed Apr 06, 2005 8:33 pm

SABAL-GAH
-----------------

Sabal-Gah is Shabel-Grah's twin brother. He was born without a soul and killed his parents at eleven years old. He tried to kill Shabel-Grah, but they were equally matched. He went to get the jewels of Orceth and succeeded in getting one. They were still equally matched, however; as his brother had also come across one of his own. Sabal-Gah is a powerful illusionist who loves to bask in his own cleverness in setting traps and elaborate plans.

He's exactly the same physically as Shabel-Grah in every way except the following. His frame, while muscular, appears skeletal. He has deep piercing black eyes and his skin, while pale, seems to be constantly basking in a thin film of shadows. His teeth appear more like fangs and his hands more like claws.

He wears a robe identical to Shabel-Grah's, only black and with golden symbols of illusionists. He doesn't have any potions with him, but carries a long dagger that is highly posionous.

Mil Relevo

Postby Magus » Wed Apr 06, 2005 8:33 pm

Mil Relevo
---------------------

This character is Sabal-Gah. He changed his name after Elenor, a powerful mage, granted him a soul.

What she did was promise him powers. He never would have accepted had he known the consequences.

The power he gained by having a soul was the power to physically manifest his illusion, to make them real.

He now is on his own, with only his steed as a companion. He seeks to find a way to right the wrongs of his past and atone for his sins the best he can.

With his soul he also gained emotions. Never having them before they seem extremely more powerful, heightened greater then any other person would feel. This results a greater response. His guilt forever haunts him. Simple matters of fear can escalate into panic, simple feelings of happiness will cause eccstacy, simple sorrows cause him to weep and simple anger causes a blind fury.

Cheesor "The Mad" Truesight

Postby Magus » Wed Apr 06, 2005 8:34 pm

Cheesor the Mad
*********************

Cheesor the Mad is an insane bard. She has travelled the world over and along the way picked up many bits and pieces of magic, battle-skills, thieving skills and lore. She is highly intelligent but not overly skilled in most of her abilities, a jack-of-all-traits-and-master-of-none.

She also has the ability to read minds. This ability has been with her for as long as she can remember. She can hear the surface thoughts of anybody within eyeshot of her. The fewer there are the more clearly she can focus on individual minds.

This ability has caused her to go insane. She sometimes gains certain personality traits and speech patterns of those near her, especially those who've been around her for a while. She also sometimes sees, hears, tastes and feels what other do. In rare cases she has even been known to transmit thoughts and her own senses to others, but only when under heightened emotional stress.

She is about five feet five inches tall. She has fiery red unkempt hair that flows in a loose and messy pony-tail from her head. She has round emerald-colored eyes and fair creamy skin.

She carries with her an elogent elfin-bow that she obtained on one of her many travels. Any arrow notched in it will magically catch flame that cannot be doused by water. She wears a worn and tanned heavy leather breast plate, gauntlets, leggings and knee high boots. She has a unique assortment of other items gotten on her various travels, including potions, scrolls, rings and other such items.

Shabel-Rae

Postby Magus » Wed Apr 06, 2005 8:34 pm

Shabel-Rae

***************

Shabel-Rae is the fusion of Shabel-Grah and Mil Relevo (Also known as Sabal-Gah). When this brothers dueled they killed each other. But they both wore their own Jewel of Orceth. This jewel bound their bodies together and created a new, third individual.

Shabel is a title. It is of a tongue rarely uttered anymorewhich meens Guardian, or watcher. It is one common to Necromancers, as the watch life and guard over both the living and the dead. And Rae meens reborn. Shabel-Rae literally meens "reborn watcher"

Shabel-Rae is a physical blend of both Shabel-Grah and his twin, what little physical difference there was between the two. He wears long white robes, light and silky gray trimmed lightly with gold. On the chest is a crest in crimson and black, one where a single rose stemms from the bottom right and bloomed in the upper left. One half of the rose devided crest was filled with lightening and storm clouds, the other was a sunlit vally in the spring. Surrounding these images, in the traditional shield shape crest outline, were bones; two on the top, one on each side and two on a slant that met in a central point.

His mind is also a blend of the brothers. He is like Shabel-Grah in the sense that he is wise, trusting, caring, intelligent and personable. But he is also like Sabal. He is cunning, sharp, quick qitted, more "Street smart" and even a little cynical.

His powers have grown exponentialy. He has the illusionist abilities of Sabal-Gah, the Necromantic magics of Shabel-Grah and all of the magical spells the two of them had. Unlike Mil Relevo he cannot physically manifest his illusions and unlike Shabel-Grah he does not have a direct magical link with Hex. Although he feels that some link may have lingered and exists still.

Although he is reluctant to admit it he finds himself more and more drawn to Hex. Shabel-Grah had cared for her and connected with her and Sabal-Gah had loved her, if only because he had just gained a soul and was entranced by her song. But what he feels now towards her is compassion... which is beginning to blossom into more intimate feelings for her.

Midnight Northstar

Postby Magus » Wed Apr 06, 2005 8:37 pm

Midnight Northstar

***********************

Midnight Northsar is a Half-Elf sorceress. She was born of a human mother and an Elfin father. Her mother died in childbirth and the father never knew of her.

She went to an orphanage in a nearby city where she was found to have great magical potential by a sorceress who wondered in. She was adopted and trained by the woman in the art of spellcraft.

She has a kind and loving disposition, but feels especially for the outcasts of sociaty. She founded a group known as The Silver Swans, who are a sociaty of social outcasts that pool their resources to help bring about political change, as well as to provide console and comfort to those who need it.

But, while it's founder, she rarely stays with the group, in a mansion that had belonged to her old mistress before she had passed on. She journies the country to help those who h need it.

Most recently she had come across Cheesor Truesight, who had become better known as Cheesor the Mad. She helped the bard exercise some limited control of her telepathic abilities, to help teach her how to differentiate from her own mind and those of others she happened to listen to.

Midnight is about five and one half feet tall. She looks human, but is remarkably beautiful for one, due to her elfin heritage. She has finer and more well defined features due to this.

Her skin isn't tan, but is rather the color of soft ivory. Her hair is slightly longer then her neck and is black as... well, midnight. Her eyes have a deep purple color to them and her lips a deep scarlet hue.

Commonly she wears an azure satin cape that extends to her knees and a dark purple shirt with matching leggings. She wears a thin silver belt that holds her coin bag and a long silver dagger.

She only has one possesion that she holds dear to her, her sorceress' staff. It is a staff of yew that is equal to her height. It has intricate spiralling carvings about it's base and following its length but, at the top, is a detailed carving of a great and mighty owl.

She commonly acts the part of a social worker and mediator, never judging a person for their face value but trying to see the good withing. She may be too trusting and open with herself, if not naive and foolish, but her heart is always in the proper place. She is a powerful sorceress of great skill, but nerver uses her art unless she feels that she has too, which may be too late in many instances. And she is always eager to have new companions, to guide and help as best she can.

She is also a lesbian.

Vergil

Postby Mr_D » Sat Apr 09, 2005 3:06 pm

Vergil Armster-

Vergil is the young and charismatic leader of the White Storm, a famous band of soldiers who fought for Avanoor and disappeared mysteriously five years ago, since that day Vergil has been thought slain. Now, as a new threat rises against the kingdoms of Severnia Vergil returns to battle.

Vergil is 25 years old and stands six feet tall with long golden hair, he has naturally dark tanned skin and youthful, androgynous features, with a lean, muscular frame. His clothing consists of a loose, single breasted white shirt, black trousers and a white surcoat emblazoned with a red cross. Beneath these he wears a light chain mail shirt. Vergil's equipment consists of a small bag slung over his left shoulder so that it hangs at his right hip, in this he carries all the essentials for travel. His only weapon is a swept hilt bladed rapier.

Vergil is a famous knight of Avanoor, renown in folklore for his many just deeds. He is the archetypal knight, polite and softly spoken his words are always carefully chosen, but beneath his charming veneer lies a burning ambition and steely resolve, his piercing eyes seem to glimpse into the very soul. In combat he uses his superior speed and agility to run rings around his opponent. Vergil is a master strategist, able to predict the course of battle far in advance and an ability to second guess his opponents to such a degree that it borders on precognition.

During the events of 'Black Sun over Avanoor' Vergil revealed himself to be the demon god K'larkh, reborn in human form. Intent on acheiving his ambition of ruling the world and completing his destiny as the prophesized 'King of the Century's End' Vergil engaged in an arcane ritual, summoning an army of demons to the mortal plane via the blood and corpses of the living. Now with an unparralleled army he seeks to bring about Neseldin's downfall, and orchestrate his own rise to power.

THOMAS
----------

Thomas is a small white rabbit, Shabel-Grah's familier. He is a loyal friend and a skilled pickpocket and spy. He has been with Shabel-Grah since he was just a boy training in the arts of Necromancy. He fell in love with Deovhara and has missed her since she didn't set out with the group. He can change into a fierce creature with the assistance of one of Shabel-Grah's spells. He also speaks in a kind of "clicking" language that only his master or Shapeshifters, or maybe others adept in the languages and ways of animals, can understand

Thomas Swiftfoot
********************

Thomas Swiftfoot is the same Thomas that Shabel-Grah held as his dear friend, companion and familiar. But, after the affair in the Orceth Tomb, Thomas was deeply depressed that he was unable to fight like his friends and help them in battle, being the perpetual observer. His longing to be something more excalated after he met Elizebeth, a human woman who he fell in love with immediately.

In this state he came to Elenor and Lancet, the abjuror that Shabel-Grah had mistrusted so and her innocent counterpart. With their assistance he got what he had desired.

He became human, or mostly so. His skin was cream-colored, tanned but not overly so. He is over six feet tall, a giant by the standards of a rabbit, thin, lanky and very lithe. Instead of nails he has small pointed claws, but not to the extent of being evident at all as they encompass only the nails and not the entire hand. And his ears, as opposed to normal human ears, are tall white rabbit ones on the top of his head.

He wears a dark blue tunic trimmed with gold and dark forest emerald leggings. Ha also has leather moccasins, a leather belt, a short blade and a dagger.
