Create a Character Challenge #83

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Kitti, Dec 19, 2013.

  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!

    This week's image:


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

    Current Goal/Purpose:
  2. Name: Windswept Currents
    Gender: Male
    Age: 173
    Species: Kalamaruvian
    Family: Mother: Rising Tides, Father (deceased): Roaring Rapids, Brother (deceased): Trickling Brook, Sister: Flowing River, Wife (deceased): Silent Waters
    Personality: Stubborn, Gullible, Demanding
    History: Wind used to be a kind, caring soul, a man many respected and admired until fate dealt him a crap hand. The Waelyns, a race of fish people descended from the mighty carnivores of the sea, had once again ravaged the marshland home of the Kalamaruvians, looting, pillaging, and eating alive all who opposed them or who didn't have a chance to escape. His wife, Silent Waters, was one of the first to be butchered, eaten piece by piece by their captors as he was forced to watch simply because he tried to protect her, his anguish giving the creatures a sick satisfaction. Next went his father, who was tortured mercilessly before being consumed as well. Finally, his brother was taken from the cage. Being the strongest and wisest of his tribe, he found his chance to strike as they removed his shackles to bind him to their table. He killed many and fought valiantly, yet it was all for naught as he slipped away with the keys to Wind's cage, only to find a throwing spear pierced through his stomach as he unlocked the door. Wind jumped out of the cage and started running, arrows and knives flying through the air after him. He finally reached the deep waters of the ocean but not before an arrow slid past his face as he looked back, cutting into his eye. After being hounded for hours on end, his pursuers finally gave up the chase and headed home. That day he lost everything, and he swore that he wouldn't rest until he had his revenge.
    Current Goal/Purpose: Revenge on those that slew his wife, father, and brother.
    Appearance: Windswept Currents is a Kalamaruvian, a race of fish people that inhabit Karalon III's swamps and oceans that reach maturity at 50, yet can live upwards of 500 years. His arms, legs, and tail have fins resembling that of the merpeople of old, while his face looks similar to that of a Human, despite being covered in scales. His hands and feet are webbed, as well as covered by a thick fur-like growth made up of algae and kelp that naturally grows on certain areas of the Kalamaruvian male's body as they age.
  3. Name: Orion Brant

    Gender: Male

    Age: 35

    Species: Human

    Family: Mother -Alive, Father -Deceased, No siblings

    Personality: Reserved, Observant, sharp, calm under pressure, thrown off by charms of the opposite gender. tender and handsome smile, focused.
    History: Orion was born on a planet far away from this one. He came of age to become militant and dutiful. Serving as an spacecraft specialist, built, maintained and piloted shuttles as well as crafts. Summoned by royal aliens to built them the largest spacecraft known to the universe, Orion refused at first. "It's not possible" he said, Then they introduced their daughter, Moffshea. She explained to Orion her plains and schematics for building a multi-dimensional craft. Orion shortly after found himself attracted to this alien woman's intellect and therefore agreed to begin construction under the condition she always be present to answer questions and be a part of this project.

    Current Goal/Purpose: 2 years into the construction of the multi-dimensional spacecraft, Orion and Moffshea ran into complications as the kingdom was under attack. Currently Orion quests to locate Moffshea and return to the spacecraft to escape and search for his still living mother.

Broad shoulder under a long 17th century navy trench coat of pale blue, with black pant held up by suspender draped over a white buttoned up shirt. Mangled hands rough and torn from years of building ships. Mostly expressionless he rarely smiles to reveal straight white teeth, quite charming and diplomatic.
