Born and raised in Esna, as a farmer he was. His chance at accending to nobility wasnt high, this was predetermined from birth. He was of dark skin and had blue eyes, After he opened his eyes his mother was beaten to death by the husband and he was thrown in the river. He was very much so a product of non faithfulness. After this he was found by a young girl, who quickly brought him to their home as family. This quickly became his sister Nyla. He was raised as a normal child working on a farm, his new family had no connection to his past, and did not care to. He was their son, as a child he dreamed of being a great warrior to server under a Mirza. But alas he was a serf, one with a dream however. As a teen he began his work on his body and became a guard for warehouses, he stopped intruders on numerous occassions but this went up to his 20s. Until he decided to settle down and get a woman of his own and some kids, he succeeded and raised a family for about 20 years. He has 2 daughters and a kind wife, their nnames are Inbar and Jamila. They were raised with no issues by his wife Karmye, while he was in the military. He was in a Cavalry unit and served 20 years, occassionally visiting his children and watching them grow up in no time at all. About 4 years ago from now he was found to have commited numerous war crimes and been apart of numerous Nobles assassinations. To escape death he fled the country and went up North and renounced his last name. His hobbies include karoke, recreational drugs and hunting.

He is a well built 7 foot tall dark skinned and blue eyed Shari man. He wears furs in the cold north and light clothing down in the south. He wields a axe but is better with a spear and shield. He is bald and has a full beard, he possesses many scars across his body that have been tattood over with light blue ink.
-

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 back of his neck would tingle as he felt the wind of this man running. His eyes would follow the thief and his legs would instintually run towards the cloaked figure. Byrne is a very well bit man, and can run quite far. "GET OVER HERE YOU SCUM" Byrne would yell while running, keeping his breath steady. A consistant runner is a alive runner, the chase would drag on, for minutes and minutes. To Byrne, this man was prey, this man had already dropped the necklace a while back, he did not care about that. Eventually the thief would look behind his shoulder, only to find a axe blade being swung right at his head and he would see no more.
-

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?
He would spend his time helping out the elderly with manual labor putting his muscles to work. To help the local community to serve the sun, to be a beacon of hope and inspiration for children. He's been in this situation before and it is quite the norm.
-

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...
Byrne would begrudgingly bite into the fish as his hunger was to great for his mind to suppress, trying to swallow as quick as possible with his eyes closed not looking at the meal and only imagining the finest of meals. The food would be stomached down and thanks would be given along with a coin for her troubles. The path would then be further walked.
-

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…

Byrne knows the dangers of war, and has closed his heart off to others. His compassion is little during a battle. The man would breath no more after finding a dagger to his throat and fingers closing his eyes for him only to hear one last thing, a prayer to the sun god to let him and his friend enter the warm embrace of the bright beacon itself.
-

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?

Continue walking forward axe in hand, yelling out towards the village that he is willing to work for his food, if only they let him in as otherwise he will die. Praying that the sun might reveal itself soon to save him, he would collapse in the snow to hear no response.

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 needs to be expanded upon to include multiplayer RP scenarios.

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

3. Your culture, description, and bio all somewhat conflict. Shari are considered Drahl and not traditional Korsians. They do live in the Korsian region however more often than not.

4. Your first question somewhat discounts the fact that you are drunk. Overall your answers are good however.

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!
