Ghalor (By Annie) (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Ghalor (By Annie) (open) Ghalor (By Annie) (close) Name: Ghalor. He doesn't have a surname, as he has never learnt whether he has parents or not and would prefer to find them(if he could at all) instead of making his own or inheriting someone else's. Age: 167 human years old. Gender: Unknown of gender, but is preferred to be addressed as 'he'. Race: Iroan. Physical Description: (Picture in process.) He appears to be in a reddish-gray colour, as the mineral substance he contains is Germanite. The main elements it contains (descending, by amount) are Copper, Sulfide, Germanium and Iron, making it an impure, but rare mineral. Thanks to the elements he contains, Ghalor is very tough and strong, as well as useful as armour and weaponry. As for his form, it cannot be described, since it changes every day or more often and doesn't look particularly as anything. Something to be noted about his body is that there are two roundish holes on a not-so-far distance of each other in a horizontal line in the front of, what's supposed to be, his head and a triangular hole on the same distance below them, again, in the front of his 'head'. He uses the two roundish holes as vision and the triangular one - as scent. Another interesting fact regarding his senses is that he doesn't feel the different materials (flesh, cloth, etc. Ghalor can't feel if something is soft, prickly, hard and so on.), nor can he taste, as he doesn't have a hole or anything like that for a mouth. But he is capable of hearing through his whole body, as it is cracked almost everywhere you could see and the sound waves get to him through the cracks. And (why, another fact~) yet another thing about his senses is that he sees everything in brownish shades, so he can't differ different colours; and his sense of smell is much weaker than any other mortal/immortal of the races. It's unknown whether it's just him or there's someone else from the same race with such 'problems'. BUT(T) His hearing abilities are much better than most of the races, as the slightest trace of sound gets through any part of his body. A thing about his organs is that he doesn't have any. Therefore he doesn't need to breathe, eat, drink and so on. But he can feel exhaustion and his daily cycle is similar to that of the other races - around 8 hours sleep and through the rest of the time he is awake. (Please note that I am not very fond of Iroans and don't know that much about them, so there may be many mistakes in what I've written so far or write later on about my character from that particular race.) And a last thing about his physics (or not) is that he shapes his form into mostly armour, as he prefers protecting and defending to attacking, and despises violence. Past: It was much before the beginning of the latest peaceful age of Altai that Ghalor was born in the northest part of Iro, not far from the coast. It was a pretty rare sight for an Iroan to be born of a mineral, containing something as rare as Germanium. Germanite - an impure mineral, containing 4 main elements and a few side ones, which are not as important as to even mention them. Ghalor's birth was something quite usual at sight, but incredible as the mineral he's made of is extremely rare. Ever since then he has wondered how he came to life. Ghalor had thought that a female from his race has given him birth, just like with the other races. But he did not regard that he is an Iroan, a mineral creature that is far more different than the other species. And so, he thought he had 'parents' - a caring mother and a loving father, who had taken care of him. But that was all in his imagination, in his thoughts, and nothing proves that that is the truth. A notible thing about him (and probably the other Iroans) is that he can live a long life and doesn't age, as he is not capable of that. That is why he has never changed in the quality of his mineral ever since he had come to life. And the things he had done from then onward was research. Only research. You would see him observing the other races, including his own, or watching the Note Worthy training their expert-level magic. He has always wanted to be a part of those amazing mages, but it was not allowed for them to personally teach him. That is why they explained what are the three magic schools and let him on his way, as they 'were too busy'. Ghalor thought that magic was a really useful thing t learn, as it would aid him in the search of his parents. The thing he did not know was where to start, since he didn't know what they look like or anything like that. He did not know if they even existed. The research he made on Iroans did not help him learn how they were born. Asking the others of his kind didn't either. The Germanite Iroan was quite interested in Spirit magic. All he knew about it is that it's used mainly for healing and helping others, just the use he wanted to have. He knwe it'd be useful in his journey, so he greatly wanted to study it and was headed on the way to the Spirit Magical School. Personality: Ghalor is, so to say, a very cautious creature. He may not have enough knowledge stored from his years of existence, therefore he is careful in everything he does, since he may do the exact opposite of what he wants or the consequences could be fatal. Even though he claims he doesn't know much about anything, he is very wise. He takes as much time as he needs to make a decision or think about something and he ends up almost always wise. But that could also be the wrong thing to do, since each and every second is important and he loses a lot of time just in thoughts. Something to keep in mind about him is that he's not the social type. You'd rarely see him communicating with someone, just because he does not feel comfortable around others and from time to time feels insecure. And probably because of his lack of vocal chords. It's not healthy for him to keep a distance from other living beings, as he usually does, since he gets lonely from time to time and can't think properly when he feels that certain mix of emotions like... sadness, grief, solitude, maybe even lost. As much as he wants to find friends, he isn't capable of doing that or he hasn't observed enough about that. He thinks that when he finds a friend, he'll keep them dear and never leave them. He feels that destiny may find him a friend for life, who he can protect and take care of. He claims he'll be loyal to that one first friend he finds. He KNOWS he will be loyal to that certain being. Due to his feeling of loneliness, he easily gets attached to people he has just socialised with. So, those who want to just tell him 'hi' and be nice to him, keep in mind that very soon Ghalor'll cling to you and never leave your side, even if he annoys you a lot and you try to get rid of him. Magical school of choice: As stated above, he wants to learn Spirit magic. The first spell he wants to learn is a healing one and he is looking forward to starting his studying and aiding his comrades in the upcoming adventures. Summary of Physical Strengths/Weaknesses: His strengths include his hearing ability, the lack of exterior feeling(as he can't feel physical pain on the outside), his toughness, his cautious nature, the knowledge he has stored and his loyalty. The weaknesses are the lack in taste, one-colour-shade vision, lack of scent, the time he takes to make a decision or think about something, his insecure and asocial personality and sometimes his wish to protect someone and help them may lead to some unpleasant situations, such as that particular someone getting annoyed, leaving Ghalor, an argument and so on.
