More importantly, what do the new classes do?
Andre is not available to answer at the moment. He is and I quote Ahem "Taking a day to ignore the world and relax on my own."
Well, damn. That leaves some mysteries open. Oh well. Character concept GO!
Name: Shivnas(First) Alfresin(Al-free-sin)(Old last name) Cassivgnot(That's Cass-iv-know)(New last name)
Age: 19 (25 Human years)
Skin: Black as night.
Eyes: Red, glowy, but not as glowy as most Malphi, for some reason. They're almost tolerable.
Hair: Brown, but he generally keeps it under a hat or a bandana. Baldness represents power in his family.
Outfit: A lot like Xivlan's in the fact that it's a suit of black leather armor. However, he normally carries a black fedora-ish hat on him, as well as a dark green shawl and a pair of dark green leather gloves. He doesn't cover his face.
Strength: 12(Pretty average, if not a bit higher)
Dexterity: 18(Malphas enhanced)
Constitution: 10(Not so good)
Intelligence: 18(Damn smart)
Wisdom: 16(He knows his way around)
Charisma: 14(Not too bad looking, either)
-Belief system (the stuff of it that can be quantified, no vices list here)-
Alignment: True Neutral. He does what he wants, though he gets along with people. Later he might shift to Neutral Good or Chaotic Neutral, depending upon what happens.
Religion: Catholic. Most Malphi are, due to them being generally poor and looking to the church. However, unlike most catholics, he doesn't really let it get in the way of personal affairs, and he's nowhere near evangelistic. You could say he's not even catholic due to how un-religious he is around people. This is especially because of the raid of his village, which was orchestrated by the church. He enjoys religion, but not the church itself.
General moral statement: "Prove to me you can be helped and I'll help you."
-Magic. Oddly, he has a taste for books, and reading. While most Malphi in his family go off to be lawyers or doctors(HINT HINT), he decides to slave away in his study and learn about magic. This lead him to his discovery of witches and vampires, and their unbridled magic power. He studied more, and learned he could fill a loophole by gaining awesome power while at the same time not being excommunicated by the church, which he is legally bound to due to his grandfather being a bishop.
-Martial Arts. He got a bit of training during his time with the noble family.
Desired classes: Witch Hunter/Vampire Hunter(magic-based)
Favored weapons: Blades, any kind of blades. His cousin taught him how to cut things properly once. He mainly fights with a swordbreaker knife, you know, those knives with the notches in them.
Favorite food: Pork.
Favorite drink: Good wine.
Favorite color: Green
Other likes: Books, arcane mysteries, other Malphi, God.
Least favorite food: Nothing.
Least favorite drink: Hard liquor.
Least favorite color: White.
Least favorite thing: Fanatics.
I chose this because mostly of how his foster noble parents don't like what he's done with his life. They want him to be bigger and better, not reading books. Despite this, Shivnas continues onward and doesn't listen. That's why he left them in the first place.
I really like this for a battle theme. It starts up slow, but is epic DnB goodness throughout. It also illustrates Shivnas' individuality and almost fluid battle pattern.
Bio(Bad enough to save the president):
-Shivnas was born in a small town in Poland, a community thriving with other Malphi, some humans, and the occasional Dhampyir. Like most Malphas children, he led a life of semi-poverty, often looking to the church for salvation and alms while his parents made ends meet. His mother died at childbirth, which made matters worse. When the plague hit his father, he was migrated to his cousin Xivlan's family, which was much more middle-class and prosperous than his own. With his uncle being a lawyer and his aunt a government secretary, his late childhood years were happy and carefree. Then, the raid. Inquisition soldiers raided the town, declaring the entire population to be "heathens". He and Xivlan survived with a few other Malphi, but the carnage took his new family, along with his other cousin and Xivlan's little sister. For a while, he lived with Xivlan, though it looked more like he was taking care of the poor child, as the raid traumatized him to the point where he couldn't leave his home or do anything. Saddended, Shivnas fought for survival. Oddly, his grievances were minor compared to Xivlan's. One day, a noble Frenchman came to survey the ruins of the town and picked out a few Malphas children to adopt as his own. Shivnas was one of them, Xivlan, unfortunately, was not. The other Malphas was left in the cold, and eventually pursued medicine...questionable medicine. Shivnas traveled to France, where he met his foster parents, Marie de Cassivgnot and Sir Alfred Cassivgnot. He was raised as a nobleman along with three other Malphi Alfred had taken. In that time, he got an education, studied magic, and learned some martial arts. As a teenager, he was taught French and English, along with knowing Polish due to his ancestry. Soon, his studying became almost obsessive, and Marie was worried sick about Shivnas' safety. Eventually, the Malphas simply left, taking nothing with him but his knife and his books. Despite his arrogance in leaving his noble foster parents, he respected them, and kept their last name as his own. His story begins with his travels coming to an abrupt stop...
What is the true path to victory? I say start with Flashman's stage.
