Characters Biography (This is where you can get creative. Write down your characters story from birth to present time. Use lore and follow the server timeline, and events. Must be a minimum of 2 paragraphs long)
Sah'Mir being of Crosian descent has never experienced much hardship. He was born in the Crosian capital and had both his mother and father in his life. His father was a high-ranking officer in the Crosian military and his mother was an aspiring artist. His father, being in the brass of the military, was able to keep delicious food and clean clothes on Sah'Mir's back and they always had money to spare. Once Sah'Mir was about fifteen years old his father started giving him military training. Sah'Mir excelled in the ways of martial combat. As Sah'Mir grew older to be an adult he enlisted into the military and fought alongside his father for many years. One day, he and his father we're annexing a Drahl settlement and as they were patrolling the streets a Drahl-folk snuck up on them and pulled a crude shiv out in an attempt to stab Sah'Mir. His father noticed and got in the way, receiving a very nasty wound. While Sah'Mir's father did not die, he had severe breathing problems from then on and was no longer able to serve in the military. Sah'Mir being the second-in-command, took his father's spot as Officer.
Sah'Mir's men were loyal to him, just as they were to his father. His squad excelled in their duties and Sah'Mir recieved many rewards and recognition, however this was soon to be all in vain. One day, he and his squad were given orders to patrol a nearby village that was pillaged by some Grulken bandits. As they entered the settlement they saw fire, destroyed homes, dead bodies, the works. Sah'Mir being a man of war, was used to this but there was one thing he had never seen before that had shocked him so awfully. He saw a young boy, with his leg severed and cuts all over his body. It utterly shocked Sah'Mir. He was in recluse for weeks after the event. He would not eat, sleep, speak, or drink. After a couple weeks he was able to somewhat snap out of it and he immediately retired from the military service. He now lives a peaceful life in his home in the Crosian capital. Sah'Mir and keeps a close relationship with his parents who are now quite elderly.

Character Traits & Ambitions- Sah'Mir's mother being the artist she was, taught him how to paint and sketch. In Sah'Mir's spare time he is improving his artistry. He wishes to open an art gallery one day and feature some of his mother's pieces.

Characters Strengths and Weaknesses- Sah'Mir tends to stray from fights but if he is to ever be forced into battle, he always keeps his blade at his side and will not hesitate to defeat his foe or die trying. Sah'Mir is completely terrified of the thought of maimed children and hate's Drahl-Folk for the attempt on his life and his father's injury and will never miss an opportunity to harass them or upset them, even though he usually a quite peaceful person. Since Sah'Mir toured so much during his military service he never formed a real bond with anybody and as a result his social skills have stunted and he has grown distant from anybody besides his parents. He is a bit of a momma's boy as well.

Characters appearance (Be descriptive)-
Sah'Mir usually keeps his hair well-kempt and his face clean-shaven. Adorned in gilded armor covering his torso and arm and a blue robe underneath his plate. He has deep brown eyes that resemble that of a strong spruce tree's bark, his facial features are rather smooth and unnoticeable besides that. (See screenshot below).

Role-Playing Scenarios:
These scenarios will be used in order to test your role-playing abilities. Please answer any 3 of the 4 scenarios listed, and remember to complete these scenarios in as much detail as possible.

Your character finds themselves in the middle of an arena with nothing more than a robe on their back. As you character looks around there is what appears to be a spear on the ground approximately 15 meters ahead of them. They’re not the only person in this arena however, with several others scattered around the arena. Each member in that arena is trying to get that spear. How does you character survive this ordeal?
Sah'Mir has learned how to avoid confrontation by simply letting others involved eliminating each other and picking off the remaining enemies who are now weakened. He would hide in a far off corner and let the other fighters kill each other off and who ever has the spear last, he would disarm and defeat the remaining foe with minimal effort used.


Returning from the tavern after a long night of drinking, your character passes through the streets and alleyways on the short return home. However, on the way you hear a woman in distress coming from around the corner. The woman is being robbed and is clearly distraught. What does your character do next?
Sah'Mir does not drink so I will not fill this one out.

On the road going passing from Oseria to Crosia, your character gets lost and ends up at Crookmire Swamp. Although lost, your character decides to stay the night in Crookmire and continue their travels in the morning. After a few hours your character begins to get hungry and heads to a local street vendor. The vendor offers you some baked goods, however warns of out of body experiences if they are to eat this food. What does your character do next, and how do they react to this situation?
Sah'Mir has never experienced severe hunger and if he were to be put in such a situation would probably be desperate so would eat the bread regardless of the consequence for fear of starvation. Once he starts to experience the "trip" he would more than likely get flashbacks to his time in the military and that fateful patrol of the village where he found the maimed boy, it would more than likely scar him even further.

In the midst of battle, your character finds themselves next a wounded enemy soldier. The soldier is on the floor, clearly upset as he cradles one of his dead. The soldier then grasps at a cloth and removes it from the dead soldiers pocket. He continues to cry, and starts calling the dead soldier's name is despair. Then the soldier glances up to see your character with sword in hand, but does not care of your approach, continuing to cradle the dead soldier. What does your character do next?
Sah'Mir being a man of military, is used to sights like this and has grown numb to situations such as this. He would strike down the enemy so that he could join his now deceased friend in the after life. If the soldier was a Drahl he would kill him with even more severe vindication and fierceness.

Any extra information you would like to add on your application? [Optional]: I would love to be part of the beta-testers!
