Story & Biography:

Answer - In her early life she lived with her parents, she'd go to school like any normal kid come home do her school work. But, after all that was done she'd take an old book she found in the attic and attempt to decipher the symbols on it. It seemed the more and more she learned about the book the more magical it seemed, one word placement here and one there and something happened. Until one day a depiction of flames in the book was found she set fire to the building burning it down killing everyone inside barely surviving it. She lived off the streets for a long while she got a job later in life working at a bar in the end the book was burned to a crisp now she's bouncing around from town to town....

She stands at 5"2, Black hair, Emerald eyes, a dark purple robe.

Open-ended questions
At least three must be answered. Delete the spares(if applicable). Please include at least one paragraph for each of the answered questions.

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...

Answer: I’d stumble my way to the learnest guardsmen and tell them about the women and what i’ve seen.


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?

Answer: Browsing the wears.


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...

Answer: Eat it, it be rude not too.


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…

Answer: I’d spare him and leave him there.


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?

Answer: Well its either die or die may as well go in.

Your application has been denied.
While in this state it is unsuitable for approving, you are welcome to try again.
The reasons for the denial are as follows:
1. Your roleplay definition is lacking a bit. Whose actions? What story?
2. Your Mary-Sue definition could also be expanded upon.
3. It's unlikely for a normal kid to go to school. These are dark, hard times - that of a medieval-like world. Having been educated as a child, let alone in an actual school, would make your character above a normal kid.
4. Magic is scarce on Esna, you cannot simply find books of magical practices in attics. It's easier to assume it doesn't exist at all.
5. While not necessarily an outright disallowed trope, having your character experience early trauma where everyone they know dies is very common. It doesn't have to be that way! Your character can have plenty of reason to leave their home and family behind even without it burning down.
6. Your open-ended question answers are too short. They need to be at least a paragraph each.
Should you choose to re-apply, please make a new application!
