Story & Biography:

Darius was born to common nameless serfs, working the lush oasis farms of the Korsian deserts. The first years of his life consisted of running errands and watching his father and watching work in the fields. Though, a stride home on the paths, past the various buildings father and son walked led to a surprising event. And all hazy memory provides is walking up to two men, a disagreement between them was obvious. Something small held in one man's hand thrust to the others. Without thinking, Darius’ father rushed to aid the assaulted man, a struggle ensued but the hard labour favored his father and the criminal ran. The day after that, a man came to the small family's door. After this, he was brought deep into the city where tradesmen lived. There he was introduced to another small family, taken as a blacksmith's apprentice.

There he lived the rest of his late childhood, learning the works of metal. Getting good at working with strong enduring materials. Getting quite good at the work, he was able to make fine things, jewelry, nails, and other works. All of this got him attention from the man that put him in the apprenticeship, after a visit and a talk- and as reward for his and his father's work long years ago, he was to be raised to citizenship and take the name ‘Ali Sahel’ as his second name. It was then that Darius reached his adulthood, with his newfound name and backing of a Mirza he joined the armed forces of the local lord. Learning there that he was quite good at the work, with a steady hand from his smiting work, and a surprisingly light foot, he found himself raising him through the armed ranks, becoming akin to a master at arms.

Due to a significant injury obtained on his leg during a tournament, he was relieved from his work of Master-At-Arms and on request. Still in his prime, he found a job on a ship- where he spent most of his most recent life. With a careful and sharp mind earned from his experience, he grew decent at speaking. And become an assistant to the Ship's captain who traded goods and was by his side on deals, and of the buying and selling of goods. Growing decently wealthy and well off due do such, even learning- albeit slightly, how to read and write.

After gaining a decent amount of wealth to himself, on nearly on a whim- he set off to explore as a traveler. Though sad to let him go, Darius’ Captain paid him the amount of money earned through his years working, and allowed him to be on his way with a bitter-sweet departure.

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...

  • Darius in a drunken stupor, stumbled past the thief- almost forcing himself past. As such, the criminal was left to his own devices. “Mm, Light will surely bless your passing..” The man muttered nearly inaudible, though began his work to try to deny any loss of life. With his hands steady but his vision steady.. It would be a rather painful experience for the poor woman, it wasn’t great.. But enough to keep the victim stable until she was escorted to a proper medic.

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?

  • Darius, a man of craft spent his time rather productively, spending it doing just that. With the little metal and tools to work with.. He made nails, proper cooking utensils, but most importantly- making proper tools for the refugees to work with. He made quite a name for himself within the camp, denying entry to the city to continue his work. Making a fair bit of coin, but most importantly bonds with his fellows.

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...

  • Starving and close to very low energy, the man moved to place a silver piece into the woman's hand. Hoping it was enough for the food. The old crone sneered upon looking up from the knitting, saying towards Darius- the Korsian. “Make et’ three for you.” Frowning, though too hungry for an argument, the man placed down two additional coins, snatching up the food to have himself a meal.. Poorly tasting or not.

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 start 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…

  • With a shaking grip, lowered the spear readied to run the other man through. A simple nod is given to the grieving man and a proper but short prayer offered to the Light above. With a light foot, Darius fell back, the last of his unit within the spear wall moved to join up with another one of the units as drilled to do. After the battle, Darius was not blessed with a blissful sleep, but a night of wondering what happened to the grieving person and the soldier in their arms.

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?

  • With a dire situation in his hand, Darius hobbled to the closest market stall, while shabby and half out of stock of anything useful. Darius was simply ignored. Slamming his hand down on the counter, he released a clenched hand with a couple silver coins in hand. Pointing to a few things, to which were given to him. Quickly hobbling away from the hostile village, guards thinking and thumbing their weapons, Darius fled at a quick pace- glad to have a refill of supplies and his hide.
