Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end

(May I join, tell me if there is any issue with the cs or if it doesn't have enough effort)
Name/Alias: Thomas Strig
Age: 19
Gender: male
Race: human

Weapons/Equipment: A iron Rapier, iron dagger, throwing knives, medical ointment for small cuts and wounds, leather Backpack filled with rations and tools, and multiple notebooks filled with stories and songs he has accumulated. He also carries his two favorite instrument with him; a small, a hand carved mahogany flute and a teardrop-shaped lute made from spruce. He wears leather armor under his regular clothing, as he grew accustomed to being able to move around easily while being inconspicuous.

Magic, Skills/abilities: Vocal Evocation: A technique taught among bards in order to create magic and varying effects via their voices. Music and art already have the power to sway emotions, so it is much easier for bards to cast spells that affect the mind or the heart than creating destructive magic. Each dab of colour, each word of a tale, each note played - all of these have a tiny, tiny effect on the echos of creation magic that exist around them. Bards study their songs and stories, perfecting them and adding their own flavor until the metaphorical magic of song becomes literal. They combine notes and lyrics in the same way a wizard combines words and materials. But seeing as how Thomas only has a few years of the first level bard college education, his vocal evocation doesn't have the duration and potential of a bard who actually finished the higher level of studies studies. Besides that, his evocations aren't guaranteed as some can be broken through or resisted if the command goes against a person's morality/ sense of judgment or by sheer force of will (AKA the reason why it won't work on bosses or powerful creature).

Performer: Thomas as a bard in training is proficient in keeping attention and standing out as he gives his performances. He knows several spells to help enhance his stories and songs; he uses minor illusions to give imagery and depth to his stories, Using mage hand if he needs a helping hand in playing instruments or to just clean up after his performance, and finally he can use prestidigitation to create his harmless special affects like rain showers, smells, or fireworks.

Thief's knowledge: Various skills and techniques were taught to help Thomas if he were ever in a struggle or found out while on an info gathering mission by Varyndir. He was taught the basics of sneaking around and blending into the surroundings, sleight of hand, and a mix of close quarter combat while armed and disarmed.

Personality: Thomas is creative and passionate when it comes to the topic of stories or songs, even getting to to heated conversations on the ending or plot holes of some stories. He is really easy going, deceptive, and energetic, but his easy going attitude shifts into anger when he sees discrimination or someone being treated like trash due to his previous personal experiences. But in most situation he will just put on a mask or fake personality, seeing as it is simpler to manipulate or deal with other people if you act the way that they prefer. He will try his hardest if something he wants or enjoys is on the line, if it is not he will will most likely try to take short cuts or take the easy way out.

Backstory: Thomas was born a commoner along with his younger sister Evelyn, they were raised by a single mother, and lived a life of poverty. Growing up, Thomas always put every ounce of effort at everything he put his mind to, yet he grew up being constantly mocked and often the butt of all practical jokes by the other children in the town. It didn't phase him much, except when they tried to ridicule his sister. The one thing that he looked forward to every year was a bard who would come singing about heroes and dragons and other grand tales. The boy with almost nothing clung to these stories, constantly practicing his story telling. Eventually he saved up enough money to buy a lute, not the highest quality of lute but a lute nonetheless.

By the age of thirteen he was esceptionally good at stringed instruments, and soon was the sole provider of his household purely by the strum of a lute. He found he made the most money playing songs in bars and taverns, and that typically the more shady the establishment, the bigger the payout. One night, while playing in a particularly rotten bar rumored for being the hideout of a well-established thieve's guild, he was approached by what he later found to be the second in command. "Can you keep a secret kiddo?", the man asked. "Sure!... For a price" replied Thomas, with a sly wink and an outstretched hand. This was the begining of a long and beneficial relationship with Varyndir, and Thomas made this man his father figure in life. Tom would eavesdrop on the patrons of various bars and gather info that he could overhear, then he would report directly to the man and trade the info in exchange for gold and praises.

The following year his mother passed away from illness at the age of forty-five, it was a sad day from both Thomas and his sister. But Thomas didn't go into depression, but rather put his effort into being a licensed bard and taking care of his sister, and trying to give her the best life possible. Thus with the funds he had saved he attended a small bard college in his town to be taught the basics of being a bard, there he learnt how to perform vocal evocations and 3 spells to help entertain audiences. While still being the man's information thief, and eventually joining their ranks after an incriminating bit of information he overheard involving the current leader of the thief guild. This lead to the thieves guild leader being seen as a traitor and being killed in his sleep by other high ranking members once the info was spread among the guild. And this all lead to Varyndir, who was actually the second in command, to take over the guild.

Thomas by the age of eighteen now has been working nonstop as a source of income for his sister and himself, by playing at middle class inns and bars while performing the odd jobs at the thief guild; just the simple stuff ranging from entertainment, distractions, and tailing people for information. He felt like his life was great and fulfilling as he could want, he even felt like trying to go to a proper bard college to become a true bard. But one night on Thomas's tailing mission, Evelyn decided to follow to see what was keeping his brother out and why he always return exhausted even though he just plays his lute and does some magic tricks. An associate of the person Thomas was charged with following had misjudged Evelyn as the information thief instead of Thomas, what came next was gruesome. The next day there was a crowd gathered around a dead end alley-way that contained a cut up, bruised, and bloody corpse of a woman that Thomas could help but weep over, his sister Evelyn.

He cut ties with the guild and set off on his own, bought some adventuring equipment, not knowing where he was headed or what he wanted to do, but knew he had couldn't just stand being in place that brought him only sorrow. He tried to figure out what to do, like trying to search for a magic spell to bring back his sister, or maybe just an adventure to get his mind off of what had happened. He has traveled to the land of Meskara from overseas due to the claims that it is a good place that openly accepted adventurers. Thomas passed through a couple of cities to look for guilds or groups that would take him, while giving performances to the people of the town as well. He wasn't taken up mostly due to the fact that he was still green and had no prior experiences to adventuring. But today when he walked to the quest board of a guild to attempt to find any beginner quests for some basic experience, he noticed an out of place piece of paper. He could tell the request was out of place due to it not only being made from different parchment compared to the requests normally present, but also the hand writing was very unique to say the least. After reading through the posted paper a couple of times he copied it down and made a personal note to go to place listed, his mind was racing at the possibility of a place where he could have a decent start to his new life of adventures.

Extra:Thomas is 5 feet and 10 inches tall and treasures his sister's silver ring, the first thing he bought for her with the income he got from playing his lute, and keeps it with at all times as a memento of her on a necklace. He loves the rain and is more of a night person, due to this he isn't a fan of waking up early. Smiles Go For Miles!
