He is pessimistic, morose and energetic, and speaks in a guttural, a whining voice, and is primarily interested in Nature.
He seems of normal sanity.

One other item of interest concerning this man; he is always out of breath.

Personal History
This character was raised in an Elven City with a population of close to 3000 Elves. Only a handful of these cities exist. It was the center of elven government. He was raised in an area considered Temperate Forests – primarily sparse evergreen copses.
Both of his Parents are alive and healthy. He has no living Grandparents, He is the oldest child of his family, and has two younger siblings. He has at least 22 other living relatives. He lost a significant friend by the name of Tamur Jamalgataimei who died 2 years ago as the result of a conflict c
alled Thregnor’s Battle..


He grew up in a family that was run by the Elders of the family. The oldest members controlled the family, and made all critical decisions with little, if no input from the rest of the family.
His family is Wealthy. His family owns its home , since the family’s income significantly exceeds their basic needs. As he was growing up, his family was closely tied to an Arcane group by the name of The Seventh Servants of The Thirteenth Staff of The Three Books that was generally well regarded by the community.
During the times of his life when it became necessary to defend themselves, his family proved to be very ineffectual in their defense of the family holdings. Essentially, his family had no cognizant ability to defend themselves – and were often berated as cowards, fools, or worse – but that was about all that could be said about them.
Privately, his family held to the letter of contracts and agreements, and could always be depended on to ‘do the right thing’ – earning them a reputation for honesty and reliability. His family’s public ethics could be considered beneath contempt. Regardless of his family’s actual ethics, public opinion is so ingrained concerning his family that it’s essentially unchangeable. In this case however, public opinion is wrong. His family’s reputation in the community however, is generally well respected, although it has been known to produce a Black Sheep or two over the years. In general, his family is considered upstanding, but at least four members of the family are known to be disreputable.
His family’s Religious preferences could be considered uninterested since his family had no real commitment family religious direction as he was growing up.
Politically, his family would be considered Mixed. One part of his family supports the current rulers, and other factions are actively working to remove those rulers.
His family tree is rather barren of any special branches or notoriety, as his family has no remarkable relatives or ancestors of note to date.

His childhood was otherwise unremarkable. The only thing that might be considered unusual was the fact that he had been born when a comet appeared in the night skies that has always had an unusual effect on the way he is treated by others. Although the event was traumatic, he would not have been the man he is now without it.
During the years of his youth, he had broken the law as a youngster. He was able to avoid the repercussions of the crime, and subsequently learned how to dodge the consequences and survive.
Unfortunately, he has become a Refugee. He was forced to become a displaced person as the result of a flood that decimated his community 3 years ago.
His early education was couched in Multicultural skills. His parents traveled around enough to teach him that the world was a big place – filled with many different kinds of people, places, and things, that helped nourish his overwhelming thirst for knowledge. Later, he began to develop his skills in the Arts, concentrating primarily on singing. Currently, he has been making a living as an Infantry Soldier. The job’s not that fulfilling, but it helps pay the bills.
As far as his relationships with his Instructors went, he had a basic education. A particularly good instructor taught him the basic skills, but, unfortunately, he has since died as the result of an accident.
His family has earned the enmity of a Mystical group called The Bronze Servants.

Character Description
This halfling is short and plump (28 lbs.) for her race.
She is a young woman with thick, kinky silver hair, and wondering blue eyes with bushy eyebrows. She has a pink complexion, weather-beaten skin, and a normal-sized head with an oval face that has a high forehead. Her nose is small and her mouth is normal sized with a thick upper lip. Her teeth are rotting and her breath is odorless. Her ears are small, and she has virtually no visible breasts. Her arms are muscular, her legs are short, and her fingers are normal. She is wearing threadbare clothing and a confused expression, and walks with graceful movements. There are no notable body odors (excluding her breath) emanating from the woman.
She is precise, anti-intellectual and compulsive, and speaks in an accented, a stuttering voice, and is primarily interested in Collecting Books and Scrolls.
She seems of normal sanity.

One other item of interest concerning this woman; she speaks with an accent.

Personal History
This character spent her formative years in a Troupe of 51 wandering Halflings. She was raised in an area considered Subarctic Aquatic – primarily underwater communities.
Both of her Parents are alive and healthy. Her Grandparents are unknown. They all died before she was old enough to remember them. She is the oldest child of her family, and has four younger siblings. She has other relatives out there somewhere, but she doesn’t know who or how many there are. She has several friends that she considers companions, but they aren’t particularly close to her.

She grew up in a Matriarchy, in which the female members controlled the family.
Wealth is unimportant to her and her family. Her family’s economic status is difficult to measure, since they live a solitary life on the frontier as scouts, living entirely off the land. As she was growing up, her family were Slaves. Her family were considered another person’s property. Her were some of the unlucky ones, they were forced to do backbreaking manual labor for their ‘Masters’.
During the times of her life when it became necessary to defend themselves, her family were prepared – if necesary – for martial conflict. Most of her family members were at least minimally versed in the basics of using clubs, spears, and knives in self-defense and/or the defense of their home – but that was about all.
Privately, her family considered themselves neutral, since they tended to exhibit no consistent familial ethical direction of note throughout her early life. Her family’s public ethics could be summed up as normal. Her family’s ethical reputation matches their private ethics. Her family’s reputation in the community however, is bad. Others treat her family with contempt, and every member is assumed to be disreputable.
Her family’s Religious preferences could be considered uninterested since her family had no real commitment family religious direction as she was growing up.
Politically, her family would be considered Supportive. Her family supports the current political structure and the current rulers.
Her family has an ancestor who is reputed to have come from some place not of this world.

Her childhood was essentially normal. The only thing that might be considered unusual was the fact that she had witnessed a violent event that tarnished her young, impressionable view of the world. Although the event was traumatic, she would not have been the woman she is now without it.
During the years of her youth, her early life was shaped by the practice of Healing. She was forced into caring for her recovering grandfather , and she can trace nearly all her skills in those fields to the trials of her youth as a result of that particular incident.
All in all though, she has been lucky. There have been no Major Events of any consequence in her life – yet.
Her early education was couched in Multicultural skills. Her parents traveled around enough to teach her that the world was a big place – filled with many different kinds of people, places, and things, that helped nourish her overwhelming thirst for knowledge. Later, she began to learn Magic. She studies “Defense Against the Dark Arts”, has learned ways to fight monsters, and is learning how to battle the influences of Black Magic. Currently, she has been making a living as a Trapper. She spends most of her time in the wilderness trapping animals to supply the local populace with skins for public consumption.
As far as her relationships with her Instructors went, the person who taught her the most isn’t actually in her area of expertise, but that person was a pivotal influence in her Life.
She has a minor childhood enemy by the name of Mathäus die Lederoffen who still harbors a prejudice against her, but she can’t think of any reason for the continuing antagonism.

He seems of normal sanity.

One other item of interest concerning this man; he has a high, squeaky voice.

Personal History
This character grew up in a Small steel Mine that was populated by 20 Dwarves. He was raised in an area considered Tropical Forests – primarily deciduous vegetation.
Both of his Parents are alive and healthy. Of his four grandparents, only his paternal grandmother is deceased. He is the youngest child of his family, and has four older siblings. He has at least 4 other living relatives. He has several friends that he considers associates, but they aren’t particularly close to him.

He grew up in a family that was run by the Elders of the family. The oldest members controlled the family.
He and his family are Refugees as the result of The Story Teller’s Mêlée .. Subsequently, his family owns nothing and has no regular income. As he was growing up, his family belonged to a Skilled Merchant family. He was the the child of a Chainmaker.
During the times of his life when it became necessary to defend themselves, there was little to fear. His family maintained a low, but effective level of readiness that included the use of a few weapons and the discussion of how to defend themselves against raiders, or the occasional hostile monster.
Privately, his family held to the letter of contracts and agreements, and could always be depended on to ‘do the right thing’ – earning them a reputation for honesty and reliability. His family’s public ethics could be summed up as normal. His family’s ethical reputation matches their private ethics. His family’s reputation in the community however, is Good. His family is known to produce stalwart companions, and they are always sought out when dependability, or a reputation for steadfastness is desired.
His family’s Religious preferences smack of enmity since his family has had a historical conflict with the followers of Eiryndul. He shares her family’s enmity, and carries the torch for yet one more generation .
Politically, his family would be considered Enfranchised Radical. His family is a part of the system, but is actively seeking to change the system.
His family has an ancestor by the name of Gurguch who was successful in completing a great questthat changed their life forever, but no one believes the story.

His childhood was otherwise unremarkable. The only thing that might be considered unusual was the fact that he had been profoundly affected by a death in the family as he lost his grandfather to a conflict called The Miner’s Meeting.. Although the event was traumatic, he could not have been the man he is now without it.
During the years of his youth, he displayed an affinity for magic early in his life, and others soon took notice of his talents.
All in all though, he has been lucky. There have been no Major Events of any consequence in his life – yet.
His early education was couched in Book Learning. He learned how to read and write at an early age, and it has been a major part of his life ever since. Later, he learned Agriculture, where he was introduced to farming and the techniques associated with animal husbandry. Currently, he has been making a living as a Squire. The job’s not that fulfilling, but it helps pay the bills.
As far as his relationships with his Instructors went, he managed to alienate an instructor of note, and his formal education has suffered as a result of it.
A jilted lover’s relative harbors ill feelings for him due to his actions toward his loved one.
