Bio:

Workin on it….

  • Appearance/Origins
  • What is your given name?
    • Kiri, no last name
  • Is your given name commonly known?
    • Yes
  • Do you know who your parents are? If yes, what kind of relationship do you have with them? If no, do you want to or are you trying to find out who they are?
    • Yep, I know who my parents are… what do you think shifters live like animals? Contrary to popular belief, we shifters keep close track of our heritage. I come from an upstanding shifter line (not to be confused with snooty nobility types)
  • What was your childhood like? Do you know where you were born?
    • Hmmm, my childhood…. My childhood was spent roaming the Feydark Forest and the Frostreaver’s Woods. My tribe moved from place to place, looking for work or investigating problems within the forest. The elders rely heavily on the children and yound adults to keep watch of the forest, while they bartered their services for supplies. You see, we consider ourselves guardians of the forest and therefore keep a close watch on both the forest and it’s travelers. And when I say close watch, I mean close watch: if we find that a variety of plant moss is slowly withering away, then we investigate the cause until we find the problem; or if a band of hunters is over-exploiting the wildlife outside of Rakas, then they might find 5-foot thick brambles encircling their camp every morning or owl-bears stalking their every movement. So, our children are taught from a young age to be alert, to pay attention to the smallest details in the forest. Most often times, we find that something quite serious is underway from what the children observe while playing in the woods (such as the Great Grub Fiasco that happened in my 13th year). Had it not been for my brother Kharlea and his fondness for grubs, we might never have known….
    • I was born in the Feydark Forest near Rakas, though I would never claim that filthy place as my home or birthplace.
  • Do you know how old you are?
    • This is my 22nd year
  • Many people join mercenary companies to escape their past. Why did you join a mercenary company?
    • After my family was exterminated at their settlement in the Frostreaver’s woods just north of the Warrens, I went searching for answers and revenge. I met an arcane member of the Legion of the Jade Lynx during my travels and joined the group because of their swiftness. I want to find who killed my family and grant them a slow, agonizing death. I figure the more people I talk to, the more ground I cover… the better my chances of finding their killers. I also like the nomadic lifestyle, the group atmosphere, and the bloodshed is kind of growing on me. I don’t think I could tear Ferox away if I wanted to, so I guess I’ll have to get used to it.
  • How did you earn living before joining the mercenary company?
    • My family roamed the Frostweaver’s Woods and the Feydark Forest acting as guides, trackers, and escorts to non-foresty types (NFTs). We traded our services for supplies.
  • What is your hair style and hair color?
    • Blonde, waist length, Long braid
  • Other physical characteristics?
    • Gold eyes
    • Basic Cat-like features, becomes more fossa-like when enraged
    • 6’ll", 150 lbs, tanned
  • Do you have any scars? Tattoos? Birthmarks? If yes, where and how did you get them (except the birthmarks)? Do they have any special meaning to you?
    • Bite mark encircles the second joint of my left index finger. I was bitten by my younger brother, Kharlea, as a child. It really hurt (and still does a little). The mark is now a bittersweet reminder of Kharlea and the rest of my missing family.
    • I have claw mark tattoos on the insides of my wrists that were imprinted in my 16th year, the age of my maturity. Every individual in my tribe has some sort of tattoo on their wrists; they occur naturally and indicate your life-path. My claw tats signify that I am a fighter, a protector. The tattoos, no matter what form they take, are believed to aide in the protective rituals used on settlements at night. I used to believe in their magic, however my family is gone… and the ritual was performed every single night. Perhaps it was forest was protecting our camps at night, in return for our protection during the day, and not our silly rituals.
  • What is the first thing people notice about you?
    • The intimidating black fossa at my side and my striking resemblance to him
  • Personality
  • What is your personality like? What are your motivations?
    • generally good-natured, tho with a twisted sense of humor; enjoy a good practical joke, especially when it’s on some else; good follower because of pack life,
    • motivations: avenging family, preserving nature in all it’s forms
  • Do you have any taboos or superstitious beliefs? What are they? What are the consequences of breaking/ignoring them?
    • don’t pee on the north side of a tree, male or female. bushes are okay for any directions, just not the north side of a tree
  • Do you have any unique mannerisms or rituals that you perform on regular basis?
    • Despite the fact that I no longer believe in the magic behind it, I perform a ritual to protect me while I sleep.
  • What are you afraid of? Do you have any phobias? Why are you afraid of them?
    • I don’t like water, or rather I don’t like submerging myself in water.
  • How well do you work with others?
    • well enough… I like to be heard, I want others to consider my opinions before dismissing them. If there is a clear leader, I will follow.
  • What do you do for enjoyment when you have time off?
  • Do you have any vices? What are they?
  • How religious are you?
    • Not very religious, but extremely superstitious
  • Are there certain things that you refuse to do? Why will you not do them?
    • I hate horseback riding, but will do it the occasion calls for it. For starters, horse generally don’t like having on their backs. I also hate using an animal in such a way, especially when I have two good legs of my own. It’s one thing to place your belongings on the back of a horse, it’s another think you’re so far above the beast to place your hind-end on it’s back. I always ask permission before riding and give thanks when I dismount. Poor creatures.
  • In Your Opinion…
  • What do you see your class/role as (such as instead of being a ranger you are a “wilderness scout” or a “stealthy warrior highly skilled with two swords”)?
    • Forest protector, wilderness scout
  • How do you feel about own race? How do you feel about other races? Are you prejudiced against any of them? Why?
    • My race is one above all others, though I don’t flaunt this fact. Our blend of feral and tame is unlike any other, we have the freedom of the wild and the gentility of the civilized. I accept others as they are, no matter their race. I judge based on the individual. That’s my rule, though I can make exceptions.
  • How do you feel about slavery? Why?
    • It’s an abomination and must eradicated at all costs. Anyone who would enslave another being should be tortured and imprisoned. The way some individuals treat their horses is slavery, thus my aversion to riding. Distasteful.
  • Relationships/Associations
  • Describe three people that are close to you, such as close family, loved ones, or close friends. Who are they? What do they mean to you? Do you know where they are? Are they still alive?
    • Kharlea. My little brother, he disappeared with the rest of my family… I’m pretty sure he’s dead; he was my partner in crime when we were growing up; he was always more mischievous than I, but he couldn’t have pulled off half the shenanigans he did without my plotting; I miss him terribly and will find the beings that killed him and destroy them… slowly and painfully.
    • Nizhoni. My best friend growing up. Pack-life did not agree with her, so she struck out on her own when she was 15. After she left, I saw her every so often, as she stayed in the Forest. I haven’t seen her since my tribe was murdered, though I haven’t really been in the forest since then. I assume she’s still in the forest. I hope she’s still alive and okay.
  • Describe three associates that you know, people that would help you as long as it doesn’t put them in too much danger or people who owe you favors for example. How did you meet them? How much do you trust them? If they owe you favors, how did you gain those favors?
    • Merchant from Rakas, I actually owe him for keeping me informed on the hunters in and around Rakas. He intel has saved our necks numerous times.
  • Describe three enemies or rivals that you have made. These may be people who simply want you dead, or they might be rivals who just want to best you or swordplay or eating doughnuts. However these are people that will go to great lengths to get in your way. What did you do to cross these people in the first place? How much do you know about them, if anything? Do you even know that you crossed them? What are they capable of (even if your character doesn’t know)?
    • Skritch, a feral pixie. I pissed him off when I stopped his tribe from exterminating all of the lightning bugs in the woods. The pixie tribe went to war with the lightning bugs… apparently they didn’t like the lightning bugs random blinking… or at least that’s all I could understand from the the garbled feral pixie dialect. Their language is so primitive.
    • Old elf/dark elf/drow crone from the Frostweaver’s woods. I “took” her prized possession (Ferox). Don’t know what she was going to do to him, but it wasn’t good. She must’ve gone through a lot to acquire him…. I’ve never seen anything like a fossa in our world and she really, really, really wants him back. She’s popped up a few times and I’ve managed to hold her off. As tough as Ferox is, he’s scared of this old bag.
  • Do you have an animal companion/pet/familiar? How did you acquire your animal companion?
    • Ferox is my fossa companion. I found him in the lair of an old elven crone in the Frostweaver’s Woods. Or maybe she was a dark elf, didn’t really get a good look at her… whatever she was, she was creepy looking. She was performing some kind of ritual on Ferox and I’m pretty sure she was either going to kill him or force him to be her minion, if I hadn’t saved him.
  • Other
  • What is the name of your Legacy Weapon? What meaning does it hold to you? How did you acquire it/how did it come to be? Does it have any history? Do you know what is its history?
    • Grimhilde
  • What is your theme song?
    • Born to be Wild…. until I think of something better…..
  • Will you use your powers for good or awesome?
    • uh awesome, seriously who would settle for good…. even Good aligned would have to choose awesome, then you’re using your awesome for good :)
  • Write any other information or history relevant to your character.
  • If you were to die, would you be willing to be brought back to life? What if you could not be returned to life the way you were, would you accept an “alternate” new form to return as (a spirit possessing your old suit of armor or an undead just to give two examples)? If you were to accept an “alternate” form, what would be acceptable, or not acceptable.
    • Death is a natural part of life, if it is my time then so be it. I will not accept any form of life except my own.
