Biography

Alex Walter was born to a poor and unfortunate family. His mother dead in childbirth, and his father killed when he was 7.

Even before the death of his father, Alex had a difficult life, having to try to work and get money at a young age for what was left of his poor family, even attempting to carve things out of wood and sell them on the street, even though. With money hard to find, and violence all over his hometown, he carried a weapon from an early age, and taught himself in their use. Especially after his father died, and at an early age, Alex had to resort to theft to keep himself clothed and fed, at this point in his life, he started practicing the vital skills he uses to keep himself alive. His favorite small, lethal, versatile and easy to conceal weapon, the knife or dagger was his weapon of choice. He even learned how to throw knives through contests of skill with other poor children that he knew.

The one thing that Alex always envied was those who practiced magic, or even alchemy and scroll-making. From an early age, he wished he had the money or proper upbringing to learn magic, but he soon realized that the only way he could ever learn any is if he either stole the knowledge, or if he managed to force someone to teach him.

As he grew up, Alex spent most of his time outside during the night, mugging anyone and stealing anything that he could. At points, it was very easy for him to cross the line into murder, he would do anything for money or food. He also wore dark clothes, especially a dark cloak which he wore whenever possible, to make him harder to spot. Still, at the age of 20 he outgrew his hometown and moved along, traveling from town to town, honing his skills, and stealing more whenever possible.

Eventually, he arrived at Surna, seeing a town with a weak guard, and plenty of people with knowledge of magic for the taking.

bump melee and stealth down by 1 each and I'd say this character is balanced enough. Also, it couldn't hurt to add some bold parts, italics and color coding. Just makes it easier to read.

About the stolen equipment, it seems fine, considering you took it from another player (right?). I'd say it's fine to have it once the profile is approved. The other starting items also seem fine.

In addition, always love a good thief, but I suggest having him just run away from home because he didn't like it or something? Otherwise, everyone's parents really are dead, or so the trend shows. :V

Also, may want to think over 'No Diety.' You can get some benefits if you actually -choose- one, you know. From the looks of this character, I'd imagine he'd prefer having a diety on his side.

Anyway, if I see some improvements on the next go, I'll approve. This char is -almost- ready.

There is a trend of people's parents dying? I only read two other apps here, and this was my first app that involves dead parents, I have bumped the skills down (I was thinking the same thing but wasn't sure enough). By "outgrowing" his home town, I meant to imply that he was bored with it. And yes, the stolen equipment was taken from other players. I still don't want to have a deity, that involves too much commitment. I have updated the skills, and I have used bold and italics this time. I also added a new goal.

Wrong section. Moved. Anyways, don't post the bio twice in the same thread, you can easily edit the original post. Speaking of stolen items; http://aeria.omgforum.net/approval-f9/read-this-or-be-banned-t1510.htm

Aside from that, the character is fine, really. The skills, to be honest, won't mean much when you face an older character one on one. I have some magic-sensitive characters in mind that this character could target, yet most likely be one-hit killed by them, but an outlaw character knows the risks, I assume.

Let's hear some opinions from the community.

All good. Idc about the bio all that much, I'm just saying, half our characters have dead parents, or foster parents of some kind. Some have dead foster parents, too, lol.

Anyway, Approved.
