    Heresi
    • Name: Heresi

      Nickname /Alias: n/a

      Age: 28

      Apparent Age: 20

      Sex: M

      Race: Human

      Height: Six foot.

      Weight: 160 lbs

      Eye Color: Left eye green, right eye blue.

      Hair Color/Style: Black, a bit past his ears, bedhead/messy style.

      Skin Color/Complexion: White but very tan.

      Appearance: Scars cover his face and body, thin and not very deep, he was born with them. He wears heavy robes, kind of like a gi but has many layers, all of which are dark colors like black, grey, purple, and dark green. He wears tied sandals with black socks, and black gloves. He also wears a thick dark green scarf that covers a bit of his face, and also has bright red earrings. He also has a tattoo of the crescent moon on the back of his left hand, always covered by the glove. His robes are a bit tattered in places, but not outright torn. He always keeps his right hand in his robes pocket, and rarely takes it out.


      Weapon: Ancient spell book, violet cover, that cannot be open or read. Unknown origin. Since he cannot use the book to cast spells, he created a grip around the binding so he can bash things with it, creating magical bursts upon impact. These bursts are random, ranging from fire, ice, and lightning. Whatever he hits, the area around the impact suffers from either burns, frostbite, or shocks. And the book has no limit. Each strike is a low leveled random attack spell.

      Armor: He has shingaurds underneath his robes made of steel to protect the front of his legs, but that's it.

      Carried Possessions: A locket of his dead wife that he carries next to his heart, a 20 oz. bottle for carrying water and a small leather pouch for storing food, both concealed in his robes. He also carries a spool of fishing line.


      Powers/Magic/Skills: n/a

      Limits: Just the typical stuff. If he runs for a long time he gets winded, if he's hungry he gets cranky, etc. (basic human limits)

      Side-Effects: None, really.

      Battle Strengths: While not exactly fearless, he never runs unless it's necessary. He's quick on his feet and hold nothing back. When hit by magical attacks, the book absorbs most of the magic, but he still gets hurt. He is extremely flexible and has good reaction time, be it dodging attacks or thinking fast in any situation.

      Battle Weaknesses: He's human, so of course blades can cut him, even kill him. The same goes for other weapons as well. He tries his best to protect his friends, sometimes focusing more on them than himself.

      Other: He has some knowledge of medicine, and can make simple tinctures and potions out of plants, but doesn't carry anything to make them with. Likewise, he can fashion a fishing pole out of bamboo, and is good at fishing.

      Personality: Oftentimes a bit cold, and serious. Lightens up around pretty girls and tries to make his friends smile and laugh. Quick to anger and hard to calm down. Likes to take time to brood over things, and is usually deep in thought.

      Likes: Spicy food and poetry.

      Dislikes: Rudeness and those who prey on the weak. Also doesn't like the wind for some reason, but he could never put his finger on it.

      Fears: Falling in love, and death.

      Virtues: Does what he believes is right as often as possible.

      Vices: n/a

      History: He grew up in a seaside town, and lived happily there. He was a fisherman later on in his life, and got married to his best friend whom he'd known since childhood. They planned to start a family, but the town was attacked by pirates and burned to the ground. His wife was murdered and he was almost killed, but managed to kill on of the pirates and take his sword. He had no skill with the blade but managed to kill several pirates in his rage. He escaped the town with his dead wife in his arms, and buried her the following day. He vowed to one day rid the world of pirates and anyone who preyed on the weak. On his travels to become stronger, he found the book inside of an old shrine. He tried to open it to learn the spells within, but it was not possible for some reason. He threw the book in his frustration, and noticed that when it struck the wall it left a patch of ice. He's been carrying it ever since, and beats the crap out of stuff with it.

    • That sounds like a plan!

      Does this magic have any limits? How powerful are the attacks?
      (You may also want to change thunder to lightning, since thunder is actually the sound made by lightning.)
    • Let's say a somewhat large enemy made of ice attacks, and the book just so happened to give out a flameful burst on impact. If the ice enemy was pretty strong, maybe the book would melt enough ice around its legs to cause it to slip. Maybe. But if the ice enemy was small? Yeah. The book would defeat it.

      Now, back to the giant ice creature. Heresi is the type of guy who would attack it no matter the spells being randomly cast. And of course he has back-up weapons. He'd beat the crap out of that ice demon.

      Edit- And the book has no limit. Each strike is a low leveled random attack spell.

    • I'm glad that you're excited to start! Once we're done approving Heresi and you strike up an RP with somebody using him, we can start approving Kobo. For now, let's focus on Heresi. The armor and carried possessions look good, so we can move on to the Powers/Magic/Skills section now.

      Powers/Magic/Skills: 1) Badass magic book that really hurts when he strikes. No magical abilities aside from the book when he attacks. 2) He is extremely flexible and has good reaction time, be it dodging attacks or thinking fast in any situation. 3) Is a bit charming around pretty girls, but never outright tries to pursue any type of romance. He is good at fishing as well, and has some knowledge of medicine.

      Most of this stuff is useful information, but a lot if it can go into different sections.
      1. This part was already covered in the Weapons section, so you don't really need to repeat it here.
      2. While this can be called a skill, it isn't really the kind of skill that belongs in this section. It should go in the Battle Strengths section.
      3. I personally consider being charming around pretty girls to be a magical skill, but it (as well as the fishing) should probably go in the Other section.
      If he doesn't have any abilities besides the book, then you can just write N/A in this part. You might also want to move the book's limits that we talked about earlier into the Limits section instead of the Weapons section.
