  1. This challenge is one about making characters based on the setting that they're destined for and also just a fun romp with one of the most creative aspects of roleplaying: character making. Based on the image posted, my challenge is for you to create a character for that setting and post it here!

  2. Name: Orion Suun
    Gender: Male
    Age: 45
    Species: Human
    Family: He is a father to two daughters, and married to his wife, Maria Suun for 25 years. His eldest daughter is named Sarah Suun, age 17, his youngest is Lilo Suun, age 15. Sometimes when their mother doesn't need helping hands in the kitchen, his daughters will come with him to fish for their dinner. His mother is the only parent that is alive, his father never came home after setting out to sea.
    Occupation: He is a fisherman.
    Personality: He is a very hardworking man, and often times he comes home very exhausted. Orion is a bit rough around the edges because his job requires him to stay out at sea for long periods of time, alone. This is why he enjoys bringing his daughters. Rarely does he show affection to his wife or his daughters, but prefers to show that he cares so much for his family by letting his actions speak for himself. He is a gruff man, with a dry sense of humor, but fiercely loyal to his family.
    History: Orion quickly became the sole provider for his family at the age of 14 when his father was lost at sea. The village gossiped that his raft had fallen apart and he was quickly gobbled up by a monster. Orion grew enraged that his own village, the people he grew up with, could talk so openly and ruthlessly about his father's death. After spending a year or so lashing out at random villagers, Orion was quieted by his mother, who warned him that his anger would soon consume him, like the sea consumed his father. He relented and absorbed himself in his work, trying too feed himself and his mother. But the anger was always there, as was the void.

    When he was 18 he met the love of his life Maria whose kindness opened up Orion's heart. They met at the wharf and she offered to help carry some of his equipment. Orion blatantly refused, saying that a woman shouldn't have to carry a man's possessions. Maria thought that such notions were rubbish, that both men and women had to work together to survive in this place. Ever sense that encounter Maria always waited at the wharf for Orion to return, even at their marriage.
    Current Goal/Purpose: Orion secretly years to find out what happened to his father, even if the ocean is good at destroying evidence

  3. Name: Norin Theddick

    Gender:
    Male

    Age:
    15

    Species:
    Human

    Family:
    Norin lives with his protective mother Enn and sweet but stubborn little sister Kella. Everyone has a good relationship for the most part, but Norin has slipped into being a rebel and taking risks as of late, earning him lectures from his mother (and tantrums from his sister when she can't accompany him on outings)

    Personality:
    Strong-willed/determined, Brave, Independent (to the point of defiance), Scatterbrained

    History:
    Norin grew up in the marshes of Adal, where primary modes of transportation are either boats or docks, but never the air. Many marsh birds rest in the branches and canopy of the giant trees which make Adal inhabitable for humans as well. These colorful creatures always fascinated and inspired Norin as a child, giving him dreams of seeing a world outside the marsh.

    Current Goal/Purpose: To leave the cramped confines of Adal and adventure in world that legends speak of. He is particularly interested in the legend of the Sky Palace, where birds of every kind and color gather and croon to the princess of the heavens, whose beauty is beyond compare.

    Appearance: Dark chocolate hair, Hazel eyes, fair skin, and a hearty build. He has an average height, and wears the poor-fitting, rumpled hand-me-downs of his family.

    Species:
    Human
    Family:
    Two sons, Wife
    Pesrsonality: Very old and wise. He is kind in heart and will do anything to protect anyone in need. He's a hard worker and will not stop entill the job is done.
    History:
    When he was a young child growing up, on Galactic Coloney A-294_b, he was not what you would call bright. An outcast most of his life, he never really felt like he belonged anywhere. Whence hearing about a program from the Galactic Republic of the Human Race (G.R.H.R) where they send indaviduals to help out less fortunate Coloney's in need, it interested him. After graduating from the Acadamy, he was sent out to his first Coloney, GC B-092_a in the Alpha Quadrent of the Republic. Building shelters, erecting Water Supply Depo's, and making sure that the lives of the Colonists are not in harms way was their mission, as well as his.

    He's been with the "Program for as long as he could remember, and retiared on the first Coloney he was sent to. Greanted, he had been to others in the past, but there's a slight heritage aspect of this one, being his first. It was a slight trophy, a momento of some kind. Just a reminder that he once did something in his life to have meaning. He wouldn't give that feeling of self accomplishment for anything.

    Current Goal/Purpose:
    To live the rest of his life in peace.
