- Theralyse was a sheltered child, raised by her single mother. She is very innocent and is very unaware of the world, she wishes to adventure and experience new towns and cities. She was left alone after the death of her mother so she decided to pursue her dreams, one day she would like a forever home and a family, but she wishes to adventure with her youth.

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...

- Run quickly to the wounded woman, saving a life is more important than riches. I have very little knowledge about medicine, but enough to stop the bleeding. After doing so, I would look for the nearest person who could help her.

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?

- I would settle my curiosity and look around, I would talk with others and learn about them. I would listen to stories from anyone that would give them.

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...

- Try it, my curiosity often controls my actions.

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…

- Leave him to grieve, his fellow soldiers will support him. Doing anything else could make the situation worse or end with me being killed.

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?

- I would expose myself as a northerner, and name the faces I know to calm the villagers. With other people named that could prove my identity, it would hopefully handle the situation with a lack of violence, but that is unlikely knowing our culture.

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 bio does not touch on the server lore at all. It is also a little on the short side. Please read up on our server lore and use it to build upon your character biography.

3. Your question answers are a little on the short side. Expand upon at least three of your answers as if you were roleplaying with other players as much as you can.

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!
