PostSubject: Alex Nye   Sat Sep 25, 2010 7:32 pm





-General Information-
Name: Alex Nye
Age: 26
Race: Human
Gender: Male
Birthplace: A valley in the mountains near Surna

-Appearance-
When in public, Alex will usually appear as an angry and powerful man, his eyes will shine and his hair will turn snow white. Circles can be seen all over his clothing. He would wear a blue cloak and pieces of armor around his forearms. When around a more trustworthy crowd his eyes will turn to a solid blue and his hair will become blond, he'll reduce in muscle mass and look much less intimidating.

-Biography-
Alex was born and raised in the mountains, his mother cared for him dearly while his father was distant. Alex's father was a failed mage who attempted to develop a new method of using magic completely through circles, his ideas were looked at as unnecessary and his constant attempts to obtain funds and followers had him booted from every magical organization in all of Aeria. He went mad in the mountains, every day was dedicated to finding a method of proving himself right, weeks turned into months of tedious study for him until eventually, when Alex was ten, his first circle was complete.

Alex's father attempted to use the circle to make himself into a creature capable of killing all of those who had made him a laughingstock. Fortunate for many, even with the sacrifice of his pregnant wife and a lukewarm bowl of stew, he couldn't muster enough energy or substance to complete himself. Alex found his mother reduced to a scorch mark, his father a bloated mass of flesh, and an empty bowl; licked clean. It was then Alex learned to fend for himself, his days were spent tending to the animals and plants so he could sustain himself, and his nights were dedicated to learning. Alex looked through his father's notes, he looked through them until he had memorized them, until he understood every single minute portion of what he was doing. When Alex was fifteen, he completed his first circle. He didn't go for such a large goal like his father, he started small, he heated up his soup. When Alex ate that soup, a world of new possibilities opened up to him.

Years were spent working on the art, Alex studied the fundamentals that it was built upon, the ideas of balance, the idea of energy flowing eternally in circular form, never dying out, just changing, constantly changing until it became what it once was just so it can go through the same cycle again. Balance became Alex's new life mission, to keep opposing forces in check. As he studied, his one circle became two, and then three, and then expanded into a language composed completely of circles, circles that all had different purposes for all different sorts of different variables. Then, Alex managed to generalize the abilities of these circles into three different circles. Three distinct circles that became the basis of his power. Alex was Twenty-two when he finished the basics of his art. He doubted he would ever manage to do anything like discover everything there was about it in his lifetime. That's a ridiculous idea, there was always something new to discover. And that's when Alex decided on his two life goals. To preserve balance between opposing forces, and to find an apprentice, so all his work didn't go to waste.

He was going to have a long road ahead of him.

______________________________________________________________________________

-Skills-

Conjuration, and Transmutation
Alex's circles revolve around these two arts the most, he's trained in them for most of his life. They can only be used through a circle.

{ | | | | | | | | | |}

Other magical schools
Alex has little to no knowledge in these arts besides the basics and a little terminology.

{ | | | | | | | | | }

Hand to hand/ weapon based combat
Alex is very unskilled in physical combat and tries to avoid it by transmuting himself into a more intimidating form through the circles on his clothing.

{ | | | | | | | | }

-Morals and Beliefs-

Alignment: True Neutral, must preserve balance.

Deity: Believes they should all be treated with equal respect.

-Tasks-

Preserve balance: Ongoing

Find an apprentice: In progress

Set up a shop where his skills will be of use: Work in progress

-Inventory-

Weaponry: None

Other items: Chalk, lots of chalk.

Clothing: A blue cloak with circles on the inside to allow for self transmutation.
Dyed leather armor.
Forearm protection for storing materials for self transmutation

Oh, sorry, I forgot to label that, it's Discombobulate by Hans Zimmer, it was used in the score to Sherlock Holmes.

Denied. Transmutation is too open a field as you seem to interpret it, you're making him a general master of two other things as well-evocation is 'weapon' magic, as defined by Geo's old terminology, which is outdated. That means that Alex would be a near-complete master of all elemental magic, defensive magic, and also has the ability to morph himself and things into forms that would not be possible when considering the current lore. Also, most magical practices already involve circles in some way.

I'm not trying to discourage you, Xeloras. This is your first character, after all, and I can't expect you to know the nuances of the lore yet...few do, actually. So, come talk to me, if you need help. I also don't mean to sound harsh in any way, though it might sound like that.

Come talk to me if you need help on anything.

I talked with Pat and I am going to deny this too. My thoughts are the same as Pat's; this is way too much for a starting character.
Further proof to Kruggly's hypothesis that people don't read bios before accepting them.

I apologize for whatever ignorance I posses, I'll attempt to tone him down till acceptable.

Attempt?

You mean you will tone it down. Beginner characters have 1-4 bars at least.

Pretty sure Xeloras means that they'll try to tone the character down in a way where it still possess most of what it has, yet still in an acceptable range.

And Psyche, I don't bother to comment on a character app unless I read the bio.

[[ Xel probably should've checked this with one of the admins at first, but they're new so you really can't expect much, despite if they were at a different RP community or not. Plus, I don't think many newcomers are open to reading every single piece of lore before they create a character. ]]

My hypothesis too.

They should read what they need to to create the character, not "every single piece".

PS: I'm really starting to hate it when people put things in tiny text that's just big enough to read. There's no point to it, at all.

So, he found his mom reduced to a scorch mark and his dad a bloated mass of flesh, and he goes to make soup.

Spoiler:
 



Sorry, no offence meant but I found that very hilarious when I read it. Also, for a new character that skill is very vague as Pat said, plus you mashed three different schools into one and bumped him to the skill level of a master. Denied, I'm afraid. If that wasn't the case however, I apologize for bad skim-... reading.

I haven't seen such emotionally unrealistic characters since Hyperiant.

i'd kill my mother for a can of campbell's.

but anyway, i wouldn't really want to deny your app, since it's a really creative char, but that part of the bio really threw me off. maybe you can make them not die at all, since having a character with dead parents is really very cliche'd.
