Story & Biography
-Within a large land, a small village lay in peace, out of any trouble the world offered, within The Krelkar Wilds . Multiple people from every different culture lived there. But their nature was pretty wild, wicked. The weakest did not survive, every minute and weak physically newborn would've been abandoned unto a grim fate, even if certain members of certain cultures were made to being small. Though, one day a particular girl named Akuji was born. Father never known, but her mother ... her mother treated her like a golden jewel; The first thing that the eye can catch is Akuji's appearance, pale eyes of orange color ... a short stature and a weak, gaunt build. Clearly a illness of some sort, which made her particularly weak. Her mother knew what would happen if someone found out such a weak person. Thus, she decided to hide Akuji, in a cave near the village. Where from time to time, she taught them how to write and speak, even if the mother wasn't very 'experienced'. Even in morality, in fact - her mother was not so 'bad', rather a woman with a heart of gold. Years passed, and sooner or later Akuji would be discovered. In fact this happened, luckily her mother was there, ready to defend her by giving Akuji time to escape when she was distracting the angered people. Akuji ran, ran away without looking behind her, and only with a mere flute and a tiny bag filled with pieces of gold, followed by some
Horses of Esna which trotted alongside her. Getting as far away from those wicked lands as possible, withtin a forest filled with Popserry Tree! From then on, her life changed. She had to find food for herself, and such ... She did, she became a wandered, a good hearted one. Deciding to help whoever she could, even if when she smiled a slight sadness was visible onto her lips. Akuji particularly suffers from her terrible past, and has visions, and voices from time to time that disturb her at night. Though, despite this she is a normal person, and she would try not abbandon anyone else again, and fight if something is 'wrong'.

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. You...

-The wanderer observed the situation with an anxious frown, and threw herself into the middle of the vent. advancing fast enough, and raising her cane to scare away the rogue that was escaping, attempt to at least. After that, she gently pulled the wounded woman to position her comfortably against a wall. She then detached bandages from her belt, and a set of needles, and then pulled a thread of her own ruined dress. This, she was ready to close the poor woman's wound. "Don't worry, I'm here now." She said, fantly smiling. To then begin and do whatever it takes to help her out, she won't abandon the wounded woman.

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?

-She looked at each member present, and with the little money left she bought some food. And she began to offer it kindly to every person who was waiting to enter into the city. She detached an instrument from her bag, an old fluato. Starting to play a cheerful, hopping, dancing with pure joy. Making the crowd's mood happier, and fineer!
Everyone clapped their hands, got up in unison with the melody, couples and groups had formed to share that precious moment after a couple of hours. When everything had been calmed down, the wanderer was ready to enter within the city. Everyone greeted her, as if Akuna was a blessing whose was fading away. She said with a grin: "We will meet again! My music may be at rest now, but at least it continues to flow within all of you!" her strange words echoed like a precious chant. Thus- now she was within said city, away from everyone.


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. You...

-She inspected the food with her eyes narrowed, then cast her gaze at the crone. Said soften look at the malnourished elderly figure, she lowered her hand to pull out a bag full of gold, and offer it to the vendor, and take the purchased food. "It doesn't matter if it tastes terrible, I know it will taste good. Because such a person full of energy decided to sell me this!" The wanderer reassured. The old woman was way more confused after accepting the bag. But she withdrew, offering a merely grunt unto the generous woman. Then she'd go away, stumbling onto her feet.

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?

-Akuji at the sight of those barbarians, she thought about on what to do. She wanted to avoid any kind of conflict, and somehow that village reminded Akuji of her old home. Thus, in one attempt Akuji moved step by step within the city, covering herself behind some walls, within the barrels . And such ... if not blocked, or discovered by some local citizen. She came unto the end, overcoming that obstacle and returning onto the main path! Thus, getting away from the tundra as fast as possible. It wasn't an environment, which she liked very much.

You’re almost there! Your application is pending.

There are only a few things to change for a final decision.

Make the following edits to your application:

1. Your powergaming definition works in a multiplayer roleplaying context but lacks in a general context. Try to display all potential meanings of powergaming.

2. Your mary sue definition is lacking in terms of social interaction. Try to explain how they interact or how other people interact with them.

3. Your bio does not use any server lore. You need to use two items from server lore at least. One must be something other than a location. This could be something such as a type of organization, a religion, or an animal for example.You can find accepted canon lore here:

https://taleofbanners.com/forum/categories/official-canon-lore.158/ (Official Canon Lore)

Once that is done, make a comment affirming you have made these changes and your application will be reviewed again as soon as possible.

Good luck!
