(Please note although the character you apply with can commit illegal or immoral acts you cannot do these things on the server without an Intrigue application. This can be applied for once you are whitelisted) Found here:

https://taleofbanners.com/forum/forums/intrigue-application.119/ (Intrigue Application)

- Born to a small merchant family in the city of Avendale, Andrik has been subjected to many pleasantries within his early life. Unlike most commoners, the extra money that his family received from their lucrative business gifted him with a lavish education. Due to this, he has been known to be well-educated in both diplomacy and stewardship. As a boy, however, Andrik would get picked on by his elder brothers: Edmure, Denis, and Jared. These boys grew up without much of an education due to the family not obtaining their wealth till Andrik was near the age of 7. He was consistently bullied by his elder siblings since he received no proper training on how to defend himself. However, he used this opportunity to learn diplomacy. Andrik knew that if he could convince the other kids around his district to gang up on his older brothers then he would no longer be harassed. Thus began the journey of Andrik Tosali as a man of diplomacy.

- In his teenage years, Andrik's family lost most of their wealth in a trading deal gone wrong. This happened when one of the rival families stole most of their gold while killing his father in the process. This devastated Andrik and gave him the signature cynicism that trademarks the boy. Without much of anything in Avendale anymore, his mother left the city in search of meaning in life, never to speak to him again. His brothers also left the city in search of adventure, leaving Andrik to fend for himself. Due to this, Andrik took up odd jobs around the city and hoped to reclaim his family's wealth.


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 2

You are on your way to the Korsian city of Telth to sell some wares. Upon reaching the front gates you are stopped by the guard. They deny you entry for the time being as the traffic into the city is too high. You are effectively forced to wait in the refugee camp located between the two gates for the time being. The camp is
filled with shopping stalls and refugees sleeping on the floor. How do you spend your time in the camp?

- Andrik would gaze upon the refugees, eyeing the elder. He'd curiously explore the camp with a stern expression on his face, walking from stall to stall. Before he could get to a stall that caught his eye, he'd quickly turn to a beggar at his feet. "Please my lord, please spare a few coins!" the beggar would call out. He'd offer his hand to the middle-aged man, granting him a smile as he inspected him. "Desperate for coin ai? I can offer you far more than just coin friend -- a job that would make you wealthy" he'd say to the peasant.


Question 4

In the midst of battle, you find yourself approaching a wounded enemy soldier. The soldier is on the floor, clearly in terror as they cradle one of the dead. Enemy forces begin to advance in the distance and you know you have to act fast. The soldier then grasps at a cloth and removes it from the dead soldiers pocket. They continue to cry, and starts calling the dead soldier's name in despair. Then the soldier glances up to see you - with your weapon up - but does not care of your approach, continuing to cradle the dead soldier. You…

- Andrik would sigh as he sees the man unarmed on the floor. He'd grit his teeth a bit as he brings his sword up to swing down onto the man. Andrik would not hesitate as he went to slam the sword onto the enemy soldier's scalp. As the man lays dead, Andrik would loot the corpse stating to it "Should've played your cards better ludd."

Question 5

You have wandered across a seemingly endless tundra for what has felt like days. A raging snowstorm makes you unable to see more than a few meters 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

Andrik would rush to the village, quickly inspecting for the merchants of the settlement. He quickly finds a stall that has a southern insignia on it; this being his spurt of hope as he quickly walks to the stall to see who is the owner. He'd quickly see to find that the stall is owned by a southern man by the name of David. He'd quickly bolt around the town, looking for the man as he tried to avoid the Northerners. Once he found David, he would hope that his southern hospitality would pay off in the end.
