Name:

Age:

- 20

Culture:

- Flintfolk

Can your character read and write?:

Story & Biography (please go into detail, we recommend two paragraphs but expect at least one. Please outline character history, personality traits and the things that make your character unique. Have fun with this section!)

Danielle is the only girl in her family among her 4 older brothers. Danielle's mother was a flintfolk and her father a summit folk. Her mother died at birth and her father was left to raise his 5 children until he passed from a mining incident when Danielle was thirteen years old. She was crushed, for her father was her idol and wanted to be just like him someday. Though Danielle loved her father so much She took more of her mothers features to be shorter and thinner than a Summit folk, leaving her at an average height of 5'6" feet tall. Despite her smaller frame, she still wants to be a blacksmith like her father, and takes any learning possibility she can. Danielle's brother's ridiculed her for big ambitions, and left her with most of the cooking while they earned the family money.

Danielle's would be described a stubborn yet witty girl. She has a kind heart but sometimes fails to show that. She's ambitious and loves to travel, her only wish is to someday make her deceased father proud. She prefers the cold northern lands she grew up in and despises the heat and the desert.

Section 4/4 - Open-ended questions
Please answer at least three of the questions to show how your character would interact with the world. Delete the spares (if applicable). Please include at least one paragraph for each question you answer.

Question 1

You stumble outside into the open air after some heavy drinking in an Oserian tavern. Just before you're about to pass an alleyway, a hooded man rushes out of it and runs for it - seemingly, he has both a blade and some jewellery on him. You take a quick peek in the alleyway to see a feminine figure collapsed on the ground, holding her hands over a bleeding wound in her torso. The thief is about to escape and the woman seems in critical condition.

-Danielle burps, still being woozy from all the countless drinks. She looks over the scene and wonders what weird dream she is in. Upon looking at the wounded woman, she drunkily wobbles over and slumps down next to her to tell her of the weird dream Danielle seemed to be having. After the woman most likely explaining how it wasn't a dream, Danielle dismisses the statement with a chuckle and a wave of her hand, not believing the woman.


Question 3

You've gotten lost and wandered awhile into Drahl lands, eventually finding yourself in Crookmire Swamp, where you decide to settle for the night. Finding a meal to buy for the evening takes some effort, but you do come across an old crone in ragged clothing, who offers to sell you some sea-looking food. She doesn't ask much, but warns you that eating it is 'unpleasant' to outsiders.

-Danielle scrunches her nose at the unpleasant looking food. She decides she'd rather catch a fish herself or starve before trusting a stranger that could possibly poison her. She dismisses the old crone and searches for a nearby plant that would be pleasant to smell to get the disgusting scent of the sea looking food out of her nose.



Question 5

You have wandered across a seemingly endless tundra for what have felt like days. A raging snowstorm makes you unable to see more than a few metres ahead. Being almost out of resources, you are delighted to find out that you have stumbled your way to a village. Upon closer inspection you find out it's a Northern village, and the residents are not very friendly towards strangers. What do you do in this dire situation?

-Danielle takes her chances with her father's people and wanders right into the town with little caution. She tries to remember everything of her northerner family members and attempts to embody their character. She strolls through the town with a puffed chest and snow covered clothing. If any northerner were to question her, she just requestioned back to whatever was asked.
