    :guin: -B'kaw! Here's my first character!

    Name: Botanicus
    Species: Demi-Dryad
    Class: Druid
    Age: 134
    Appearance: An ethereally good looking elf, with dark skin and deep green eyes that almost seem to glow. When angered, he can assume his dryad form, his skin assumes bark-like qualitys and his fingers elongate into harsh branches.
    Abilities: Due to an apprenticeship with a mage, and due to his natural affinity :D with the world of nature, he can cast many earth-orientated spells, as well as assuming the properties of different trees.
    Quirks: If away from a source of nature for too long, he will wilt and die. If he can 'enter' a tree, he will heal almost instantly whilst within it, but is vulnerable for this space of time.

    Name: Sarok (of Eternal Darkness)
    Species: Hooded Assassin- Cobra anthro
    Class: Bard/Rogue
    Age: 27
    Appearance: A sleek, snake, as beautiful as his kind can be. However, when he dances...
    Abilities: Adept knowledge in venom, and once he begins to move, all beings who watch feel an intense longing to be with him. The effect wears off as soon as the dance stops, but all members of both sexes are attracted to him whilst he uses his 'hypnotic tango'
    Quirks: Blind, but still uses infravision

    Sci-Fi Character

    Name: Sarok (Revised)
    Age: 23
    Species: Arclanian Viper
    Lifespan: 700 turns of his planet (About 300 human years)
    Homeplanet: Arclania
    Sentient: You betcha
    Pros: Astounding Flexibility, Agility and Speed. Huge strength within his 'coils.' Extensive knowledge of assassination, specialising in poisons. Assumes a male aspect, but has no clear gender.
    Cons: (If listed, can be exploited :p)
    Appearance: The upper torso of an anthromorphic cobra, with sleek, beautiful scales, that appear green mostly, but can have their hue changed to almost anything- useful for camoflage, and for asthetic purposes. His eyes are black slits, and the only part of him that betrays his emotions. In his bite is a powerful toxin, that causes temporary paralasis, and can also be spat. In place of legs, he has a serpents coils, lined with barbs, that can be venomous, but require concentration beforehand. His main weakness lies in his lack of arm strength, and his inappropriate size. Although blind, he has infravision, so an explosion of heat is to him, what a flash of light is to anyone else.
    Special Ability: When he dances, his skin reflects every colour of the rainbow, and all those watching have an overwhelming urge to join- his dance must be exactly that, if he attempts to do a hostile action simultaneously, the spell is broken.
    History: Born an Arclanian Viper, who grow through metamorphosis, he was born, like most of his kind, as a winged snakeling. After forming a cocoon, he gradually evolved into the form he posesses today. His home planet was at war, humans did not speak his language, and he did not speak theirs, so both assumed the others were hostile- one the invaders, the other the natives. After a brief war, resulting in the almost entire annihilation of his race, he discovered technology, and mastered the human language, although its gutterish tones were strange to the smooth hisses of home. Working as a servant- then a mercenary, he finally managed to afford his own small ship, and travelled the universe looking for places to hone his extraordinary skills.
    Equipment: A 'newbie' to technology, he can fly a ship, and uses two 'light-daggers', and various rogues devices, but other than that, has nothing except light armour.

    :guin: Irrelevant to any RP at this point

    Name: Hengeyokai
    Age: 430, roughly- he has no idea himself
    Appearance: A golden sword of amazing quality, with beautiful gems studded down the side. However, he can also become a mirror, and various other relics on request of his wielder. His human appearance is of an ethereally handsome ronin.
    Abilities: Essentially a sword, but that of excellent quality, that never breaks or rusts. It cannot leave its wielders posession unwillingly, and the spirit inside (Hengeyokai) is also a master of illusion.

    Name: Maelor 'Brakensword'
    Age: 28 (Physically)
    Appearance: That of a stocky human, with skin of a greenish hue. He has the ears, and eyes of an elf, but all the muscles of an orc- and some of the strength. His hair is long and black, his teeth are perfect but his nose is slightly mishapen. His hands are also huge, out of proportion with the rest of him.

    Equipment: He lacks the delicate hands of an elf, and any bow he has tried to use has broken in his hands- he is still a skilled marksman, preferring to use a sling and any nearby weapons. He is also an expert with throwing daggers- but his main skill is with the trident he wields. He has a mithril vest, which he presumably stole off a dead foe- he is not known for his temperament. He also wears leather armour over the top, with studded gauntlets and a helm crafted into the shape of a wolf. He can wear heavy armour, but prefers the freedom of movement of lighter items.

    Species: Elf/Orc cross-breed

    History: His father, an orc, was an outcast of his kind- he lacked the strength, and malice of his kin. As his tribe grew stronger, he became a liability to them, and so was 'disposed of.' He awoke in a forest, covered in scratches, having nearly drowned. There he was found by Maelor's mother, an elf who was also an outcast. When she was young, she had strayed far from the paradise she lived in- she was uncommonly wreckless- and was attacked by marauding goblins. She somehow survived, but her face had been so cruelly maimed, that although her kind were not vain enough to cast her out, the males certainly lost all interest in her. So she too had fled to the same forest. Mistaking the orc for a human, she nursed him back to health. When she discovered his origin, she was drawn to him- their stories seemed the same. They fell in love, and had a child- half orc and half elf.

    The child was, himself, an outcast- he could not join the elves in the golden wood, and had no desire to rape and pillage with his fathers brethren, and so he lived in the forest, feeding off berries, beasts, and the occassional human who came his way. When he was still fairly young, goblins visited his homeland- that was the last time he ever saw his parents. And so he strayed to a nearby human village, and learned of mortal life with them. After another few seasons, he decided to make his way as a mercenary...which brings him to today.
