  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!

    Feel free to utilize this character sheet or create your own:

    Current Goal/Purpose:

  2. Name: Sköll and Hati

    Gender: Male twins

    Age: Sköll (19) and Hati (19)

    Species: Human

    Family: Sol and Mani (Mother and Father of Sköll and Hati)

    Sköll: Rash, hard headed, strong and reliable
    Hati: Polite, smart, witty and calm

    History: Star crossed lovers, Sol and Mani wed in the first week of September. Soon, news of Sol's pregnancy brought jubilee to their parents as the doctor revealed their newborns as twins. After birth of young twin boys, Sol named them Sköll and Hati, the couple decided to go on a hiking trip in the cold mountains that hugged their city. Upon a night of much needed rest, disaster was only a few feet away- Sol shrieked as Mani was attacked by a pack of hungry wolves- he fought bravely to fend them off but he was overwhelmed by the trickery of savage beasts, Sol managed to hide their kin before preparing herself for her ultimate sacrifice- she grabbed a hunting knife and headed out. Tragically, Sol and Mani didn't come back- Sköll and Hati were found by the high sense of smell by the hungry wolves- but luck was at their side, Sköll and Hati treated the wolves like puppies and began hugging them, the leader of the pack took this as a sign and bit their collars and took the young infants under their care. Several years later, a monk who lives in the Temple of Nature found a group of wolves encircling a young boys, with the thought of danger, the monk hurried to fend off the wolves but the young boy stopped him from hurting the four legged canines and revealed himself as Sköll. With the knowledge, the monk offered them a place to stay but Sköll demanded that the wolves come with him, with the help of Hati- who possessed much more politeness managed to persuade the monk to allow the wolves to follow them. As soon as Sköll and Hati reached the temple, the grand master bowed in their respect and feverishly called them the Sons of the Wolves.

    Current Goal:
    Now named the Sons of the Wolves. Sköll and Hati guard the temple from intruders and potential threats, Sköll helps the new guards in training while Hati helps with the gathering of natural resources for medicine and other helpful purposes. They plan to live the rest of their lives in peace and prosperity.

    Appearance: Both twins have rough and scraggly short hair due to their origins, with Sköll having red hair while Hati has pale blue. Sköll is muscular and big frame due to his physical training while Hati is slender and quite fragile, Sköll discards his upper robe to show off his physique while Hati is happy to wear the standard clothes of the monks. Both have identical facial features but their facial expressions really tells them apart.

    Fun Fact: In Norse Mythology, Sol and Mani were created by Odin and are ordered to travel the world as sun and moon. But Sol and Mani found the world interesting and refused to travel, making severe droughts and never ending darkness to areas. Odin summoned Loki to create a plot to make Sol and Mani run away, he traveled to the land of giants and found twin wolves named Sköll and Hati- he offered them meat and they demanded more, he pointed at Sol and Mani who were still admiring the world, Loki granted them ability to fly and Sol and Mani saw the danger and drove their chariots to escape the twin wolves, this is the reason why the sun and moon travel across our skies.

    Pretty Ironic that Sol and Mani named their twins as Sköll and Hati, named them after the wolves that would actually devour them and start Ragnarok.
