- Haradaeir av Dunsgate
~ freeman ~ no bond of landed tenure.
Age: 26, Male, 187 cm, 102kg. ~hazel eyes, short brown hair, short brown beard.
Unmarried, sired no offspring, taken oaths to uphold the 9 holy laws.

Born in North Oseria, in Dunsgate, the Grand Duchy of Avendale.
Childhood: productive assistant to father, but enjoyed a lively and troublemaking childhood in the streets of Dunsgate, where I grew to cooperate with the other lads there.
Age 12-15: Served a term of 3 years as a lay monks’ assistant in a lesser known monastery in Karn in service to The One. Outcome of piety, basic literacy, and a fondness for ecclesiastical architecture.
Learned the basic crafts of the cooper and brewer by my father in Dunsgate.
Ages 16-20: Worked as a caravan assistant and guard, taking up odd jobs in villages and towns, but refusing to sail or row ships. Dislike for piratical folks, like for agriculturalists.
Ages 20-26: Joined the Blue Orchid, a break-away chapter of the Order of the Healing Hand, with more of a focus on protecting merchant travellers and pilgrims. Some experience in this position included masonry work at a chapel, small scale military skirmishing, basic healing, and thorough arms training.

Presently: traveling as a lesser knight of the Blue Orchid chapter. Not yeat wealthy enough to buy armour, but well equipped with a winter monk’s robes.

Mother:~ Skadi the younger; was a traveling fabric merchant from the Melting Lands.
She always claimed a long lost link to the Northern kings of old, but this is hardly any statement of worth, given the virility of the early northern warrior lords.

Father:~ Hadvar Hadvarsson av Dunsgate; Father was an established brewer in the employ of Frigots Ales. He served some time in the service of the ducal lords of Avendale in his youth, and taught me the basics of swords-craft.

Grandfather by sire-side; Hadvar av Oakenbri; a once renowned knight in the service of the Order of the Healing Hand. Settled in Dunsgate, whereupon he fathered 13 sons by three wives all named Hilde. Died in 965 AT by the Great Death (One rest his soul).

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?

-It was on this recent occasion that I purchased my fine monk's robe from a rather suspicious vendor. The robe belongs to the chapter of the Blue Orchid, but I hesitated to ask where the man acquired it. Having need for the garb for my planned northern travels, I made a deal to exchange the robe for my last three pieces of gold and and afternoons work. Having had spent much time with the caravans, it was an easy afternoon operating the gentlemans stall whilst he drank in the tavern.

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...

- I stomach my distaste for native foods, and thank The One for blessing me with life and health. I learn that the crone is wise in the ways of treating bad dreams in the area, and I tactfully convince here to share some of her spiritual and herblore knowledge. Amusingly, she is delighted to learn from me that a local plant in the swamp she thought was a weed is very useful for flavouring broths, a trick I learned in my father's brewery.

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?

- Not having too many years of experience under my belt with regard to traveling the lands of the north, I trust in The One, that he will protect me. I know that I must hide my faith, but I need the warmth of a fire. Having collected several rare specimens of bitteroot and greyoak bark from the tundra undergrowth in my travels, I humbly plead with the head of the village to allow me to take rest and supper in exchange for tending to any ailments or sickness in the small settlement.
