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!)

-Kiira Trevis was born in a small nomadic tent village. From a young age, she learned the basics of riding and hunting (more recently how to use herbs). The years passed and there was a strong urge to see the world. She grew tired of the vast savannahs where her ancestors had lived for so long. At the age of 17 she turned to one of her relatives and sought advice on how to get out of this desolate area without getting in trouble. This advised her to become a traveling merchant. A few months after this conversation, she decided to buy a small cart with the little money she had. Since then, she has been using the skills she was taught to see the world and earn some money on the side.^

Appearance: Medium: White / gray hair due to pigmentation disorders. Dark, tanned skin. An arakh on her back,
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...

-I would hurry to the woman on the floor to help her. If it is clear that she is dying and there is nothing more I can do for her, I would call out for City Guards or the people from the Tavern to help because I know that I am to drunk to do anything against the murderer.
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?

-I would choose to guard my goods or not. If not, I would look for a herb shop for my private supplies. It would also be good to stay away from all shady things and not doing anything that would drag attention to me.

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...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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…

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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?

-I am aware of my terrible situation and would do everything in my power to get a place to sleep. In my pockets there are exotic herbs and dry fruits that I could give away for trading. Hopefully it won't make them even more angry.

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 roleplaying definition is a little short. Please expand upon it.

2. Your powergaming definition is good for MP roleplay scenarios, but needs to be expanded upon to include other items.

3. Your Mary-sue definition does not cover the entirety of what a mary-sue could be. Please look into this more.

4. Your skin and character description are that of a fantasy dark elf. This may not be what you 'say' the character is, but the appearance is too much. Your screenshot also does a poor job of showing the character.

5. Your bio does not touch on the server lore at all. Please read up on our server lore and use it to build upon your character biography. It is also on the short side.

6. Your question answers are a little on the short side. The kind of answers you gave is fine, just expand a point or two and your good to go.

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!
