Character concept thread for The Other Side

Post  Berserker on Fri Aug 23, 2013 7:30 am

Viewing this is likely to spoil stuff, but if you actually DO want to ruin the surprises I make for you, go right ahead. Spoil yourself at your own discretion.

Name: Havaird Melcer
Age: 32
Gender: Male
Occupation: Mercenary
Origins: Fort Rockden, Adrila
Height: 181 cm
Weight: 87 kgs

Image:
Havaird:
BEING CHANGED

Stats:
StrDexMPConSpd
55354
Personality:
Brash, bold and equipped with the typical Adrilan desire for a battle, Havaird makes an interesting center of attention when abroad. Where the calmed, dignified manner of Elthern nobles and the inherent silver-tongue of Ivelleans often lead to refined and civilised conversation, Havaird possesses a natural ability to spread chaos around himself. He is polite on the rare occasion he meets someone he considers worthy of his respect, but otherwise he won't hold back at all, neither in combat nor conversation.

Weapons: Havaird wields a standard-issue longsword, crafted in Adrila.

Magic affinity: Not yet seen by anyone

Traits and flaws: His brashness, for both. He isn't afraid of saying what must be said, but it's easy for him to earn enemies, despite his mostly friendly nature.

General Chesmor

Full name and title: General Chesmor Achrenne of Adrila
Age: 54
Gender: Male
Occupation: Military commander in the Adrilan army
Residence: Adrila City, military quarter
Height: 180 cm
Weight: 82 kgs unarmoured; 101 armoured

Images: Coming soon™

Stats:

StrDexMPConSpd
65455


Personality:
While generally formal and commanding around soldiers, Chesmor has a light-hearted side to him. He's quite fond of telling old stories, seeking out the moral in them and always seeking to learn a lesson from things past. He had a wilder youth as a knight of Rockden; fierce in battle and pursuing the path of the Champion, but he was forced to take command after his sergeant was slain in battle. Since then, he has sought to look after the younger generations of knights, teaching them the Adrilan ideals and tempering his reckless nature with the responsibility of others' lives. He has become a well known figure in Adrilan military, known as a man taking battle more seriously than General Jarris and having a remarkable mental endurance.

Weapons:
Chesmor wields a bastard sword, long enough to swing with both hands and short enough to swing with one. He is proficient in the usage of shields.

Magic affinity:
Over the long years, Chesmor has been forced to maintain mental clarity for a long time, during protracted battles. He has developed the ability to draw upon his physical strength to reinforce his mental strength, allowing him to sacrifice combat strength to maintain focus for longer without tiring.

Traits and flaws:
With great power comes great responsibility, a lesson Chesmor has learnt well. He has been forced to make several decisions in his life, some that haunt him to this day. He will try to avoid having to make these choices again, working hard to plan a strategy ahead of time with as little risk as possible. When his strategies go awry, however, he will often begin formulating a new replacement strategy as fast as he can, making some tactical errors underway and almost forgetting to command his troops. In the worst case scenario, he will charge in himself along with his bodyguards to turn a situation around.

Captain Lynne

Full name and title: Captain Lynne Feagard of Highton
Age: 31
Gender: Female
Occupation: Military commander among the knights of Highton
Residence: Highton City, the barracks
Height: 174 cm
Weight: 67 kgs unarmoured, 89 armoured

Images: Coming soon™

Stats:
StrDexMPConSpd
54354
Personality:
Already being a veteran commander and quite skillful, Lynne has a tendency of speaking to younger people in a patronising way, though she means nothing ill with it - she seeks to impart her knowledge into those younger than her, so that they may learn from her mistakes. As a commander, she's disciplined and full of initiative. She maintains a good tactical understanding of the battlefield, and will take most low-risk chances she gets. This makes her a very useful second-in-command, as she can be relied upon to take field command outside the range of the army general.
Outside of military matters, she's a quite pleasant person to be around. She's more than willing to drink with her men and has quite thick skin, meaning she won't be easily insulted. In the Highton companies, she has become well known by the knights as someone who's very sociable and gladly forms friendships with her fellows. Her positive outlook on life is quite typical for Adrilans in general.

Weapons:
A longsword and a kite shield are Lynne's favoured weapons; weapons all Adrilan knights know well. She wields them alongside her fellow knights, leading from the front and helping uphold the shield wall.

Magic affinity:
Lynne's magical ability is of the aura type; she brings optimism and hope with her into battle, something that serves to remedy a weakness among Highton knights.

Traits and flaws:
A certain disadvantage Lynne possesses is a certain amount of pride. She knows her skill is above average for a knight, and she will display it. Her optimism only fuels this, as she grows confident in herself, believing she can win a duel against all but the most legendary of knights in Adrila; she'll accept all challenges, even when it's tactically unsound to do so.
Another flaw of hers is that while she enjoys drinking, she easily goes overboard while drinking, and has no memory of what she did the night before when she wakes up.

Captain Tanred of Adrila

Full name and title: Captain Tanred Heras of Westbank
Age: 57
Gender: Male
Occupation: Military commander of the knights of Westbank
Residence: Westbank, inner barracks
Height: 194 cm
Weight: 103 kgs unarmoured, 132 armoured

Images: Coming soon™

Stats:
StrDexMPConSpd
63363

Personality:
Slightly thickheaded and slow in the mind, Captain Tanred was initially promoted to sergeant because of his fierce dedication to fighting, then later to captain when it turned out he made an excellent example for his fellow knights. Old as he is, he remains a stubborn man who's learnt from his experiences, and he's quite proficient as a commander now as a result. He'll lead on with a cold discipline, showing his men what way they should face and then advance in that direction until they're amidst the enemy.
Off the field, he's somewhat of a loner, often sticking with himself. He's drawn to rivers and brooks, and will often sit by riversides unless there's something important happening. When approached, he'll talk for a bit about all things crossing his mind, before going quiet.

Weapons:
Disregarding what is commonly accepted in Adrila, Tanred wields a large morning star into battle, along with a large tower shield. While he's not as strong and powerful as he once was, he still is extremely destructive in melee combat, and the old giant is both feared and respected all the more because of it.

Magic affinity:
Tanred's skin can toughen, becoming as tough as stone. While like this, he moves more slowly, but in return he becomes invulnerable to arrows, and he takes less damage from bladed weapons.

Traits and flaws:
Tanred is notably stubborn; both in the good ways, and the bad ways. Occasionally he will get the idea that he must defend a point, and he will stay there until either his men or a higher ranked commander convinces him he can move on. However, this also means that when he is set to hold the correct objective, nothing short of annihilation can move him off the point, and by that virtue, also his men.

Captain Galdor

Full name and title: Captain Galdor Rudgard of Fort Rockden
Age: 28
Gender: Male
Occupation: Military commander of the Rockden province's knights
Residence: Fort Rockden, inner fortress
Height: 177 cm
Weight: 78 kgs unarmoured, 94 armoured

Images: Coming soon

Stats:
StrDexMPConSpd
64354

Personality:
While aggressive and headstrong, Galdor possesses a certain degree of tactical understanding; having learnt early that blindly charging in is a poor idea, he is capable of leading smaller armies into battle. His bravery is well known in Rockden, and he has fought in many skirmishes against the Bear Tribes to the south.
When not in battle, he is a very calm and quiet man, slow to anger; most often found polishing his wargear and sharpening his weapons. He is independant of others, just as his men.

Weapons:
Galdor carries a greatsword with him, forged for durability and power over speed and grace. It is almost as long as he is. A shortsword hangs from his belt, used as a secondary weapon in tight spaces.

Magic affinity:
Having taken many blows in the past, Galdor has gained the ability to absorb an impact completely, so that a heavy blow won't stagger him, even if it wounds him.

Traits and flaws:
A major issue of his is that once he finally joins battle, he enters a deadly calm, where only he and his enemies are what he notices. He will not hear orders given during battle, until his enemies are scattered or broken; this quickly becomes very dangerous if the enemy readies a counterattack on his men.
This deadly calm is a great advantage as well, however; seeing a single captain slash down one foe after another is very unnerving for his enemies.

Captain Syvelle

Full name and title: Captain Syvelle Randegard of Lowerfell
Age: 43
Gender: Female
Occupation: Military commander of the knights of Lowerfell
Residence: Fort Lancepoint, northern Lowerfell
Height: 167 cm
Weight: 73 kgs unarmoured, 97 armoured

Images: Under production.

Stats:
StrDexMPConSpd
54464


Personality:
She appears cold-blooded, disciplined and professional in her tasks; never overstepping her bounds as a captain, but doing her best to fulfill her duties. She's remarkably humble in her actions; the pride that one often finds in Adrilans is hardly present in Captain Randegard at all. However, this does not make her a less capable combatant. She is a most apt warrior, and her personality represents this - while she is not hindered by personal pride, she will not accept leading her knights into skirmishes Lowerfell's regular soldiery can handle.
When off duty, she likes spending time with her fellow knights, an act widely appreciated by the knights. Whether it's sparring or just talking, she gets along with them on a close and personal level, something that is seen as unsightly by some other military commanders.

Weapons:
In all engagements, Syvelle fights with a standard Adrilan sword and shield combination, as these are the most commonly used armaments by all knights.

Magic affinity:
After many battles spent in formations, Syvelle has learnt well how important supporting one's comrades is. She is capable of, by spending her own strength, strengthen her men's shield formation. While this is a powerful ability, she can't keep it up for long, but it is a great skill for facing down charges.

Traits and flaws:
Her close connection with the knights fighting under her serves as an advantage, as they are far more loyal to her than to a captain they don't know, but her men getting slain will weigh heavily on her, as she loses friends, not unknown knights.

Captain Rol, hero of Greyvale

Full name and title: Captain Rol Treyme of Greyvale
Age: 66
Gender: Male
Occupation: Commander of Greyvale's Second Knight Company
Residence: Misty Pass Fortress, southern Greyvale
Height: 179 cm
Weight: 77 kgs unarmoured, 94 armoured

Images: Coming soon.

Stats:
StrDexMPConSpd
53455
Personality and history:
Having spent his entire life in a military position, first in Greyvale's woodsman militia and then in Greyvale's knight companies when Adrila claimed Greyvale for itself, it's quite natural that Rol's personality is a thing deeply buried in discipline, strategy and warfare. The scars of war are evident both on his body and his mind, and it is sometimes hard to get through to the old veteran. He's seen much; vampires, when they come to Adrila, find Greyvale first. Bear Tribesmen often pillage in the southern provinces, and Greyvale's knights are among the first to strike back. He fought in the battle of Allinsmouth, seeing pirate blackpowder weapons strike down his brothers in arms. At the Battle of Fargate, where Arrendal's forces fought an uphill battle against Ivelleans, Rol was on the front lines. He and his company has taken part in all major Adrilan military campaigns as well as some on their own initiative. Appearing stern, calm, brave and reasonable at once, Rol is an invaluable aid to any military force with his long experience.

Weapons:
Rol fights with a double-edged battle axe and a reinforced kite shield.

Magic affinity:
Rol's magical ability, oddly, has yet to be seen, though he claims to possess one.

Traits and flaws:
As a mighty warrior and fearless leader, Rol is very famous in Adrila, but he feels he only acts as a beacon for all the glory that should have been for his knights. His modesty is valuable, serving to keep him clearheaded through the praise he receives. However, as he's getting old, his once sharp mind is growing dull, and his physique is growing weaker. A legend appears to be ready for his last campaign, but how will he be remembered?

Captain Alere of Fargate

Full name and title: Captain Alere Holgard of Fargate
Age: 34
Gender: Female
Occupation: Commander of Fargate's knights
Residence: Snowfall Fortress, upper Fargate
Height: 166 cm
Weight: 63 kgs unarmoured, 76 kgs armoured

Images: Coming soon.

Stats:
StrDexMPConSpd
45645
Personality:
Aloof, arrogant, antagonistic and an occasional tease, Alere is a very unorthodox Adrilan, caring only little for a knight's honour in battle. She fights with entirely different means than most Adrilans - she fights almost like an Ivellean battlemage, if it was not for her preference of fear tactics. With her on horseback alongside her lightly armoured knights, she can wreak absolute havoc among her enemies prior to an actual engagement. Her arrogance and attitude are due to her results - the campaigns she has participated in have all been extremely successful, even if most knights have had a bad taste in their mouth afterwards. For this reason, she sees herself fit to question any commander she serves under, offering alternate tactical advice and cold-blooded ways of doing war. She is widely criticised as a result, however, and most fighters from other provinces refuse to defer to her sole commands without orders from their direct superiors.
She is not a complete disgrace, however; outside of warfare, the knight's way of life suits her well, and particularly occasions allowing her to dress in finer garments are well loved by her. Arrogant as she may be, she can be quite charming and pleasant to stick around if one manages to impress her.

Weapons:
Fighting is not her strongest suit, but she uses a long steel staff as a weapon in combat, serving as physical weapon and catalyst to magical attacks alike.

Magic affinity:
As a quite adept mage, Alere has developed a good affinity with magic. Her natural ability is quite potent as a result; she can cause any single person within her sight to experience visions of their currently most likely way to die. While dangerous to some, it can fill others with a sense of peace, or prepare them for the inevitable. Particularly cold-blooded individuals might even glean some tactical knowledge from it, if their wills are strong.

Traits and flaws:
These are listed in her Personality entry already.
