Character Name: Buhari Swakhart
Age: 34
Sex: Male
Race, Town, Region: Ceyfipian, Fifonet, Bandit Wastes

Appearance: Buhari much like most that fall into his troupe has a rather strapping build tailored by the rough lifestyle that he inhabits. The dark reddish-brown hue of his skin speaks of his heritage all the while acknowledging the harsh environments of the territory he calls home. Surprisingly, Buhari had not amassed many scars which is astonishing given his “profession” and irresponsible lifestyle. Buhari’s dark brown eyes have a somber glaze about them sometimes making it difficult to truly read him wholly. His bristly crow black hair twines in length twisted into braids which are weight down by rings of bone and brass.

Buhari cares very little about appearances and can typically be seen in one get-up that he deems “comfortable” regardless of the apparent wear it has sustained overtime. He is most “comfortable” in his tatty green jerkin paired with his gray hemp trousers and crude black leather pauldron. Upon each wrist and forearm stretches a pair of black studded gauntlets, matched by the black studded greaves that protect each shin.

Personality: Despite his uncivil background Buhari carries himself in a somewhat respectable way; there are times where he can maintain a half decent conversation as long as it’s kept brief. Calling the man “mellow” would be too polite, for he is by all means fairly lazy and disinterested in the affairs of others. However, with the proper motivation he may surprise some with his tenacity.

Biography: What must it be like for those whom merely cling to survival, without truly thriving in their existence or understanding the implied precepts a gift such as life might offer. None know the answer to this question more so than the dejected Ceyfipian people of the Bandit Wastes. Most who occupy the desert and its ever stretching sands have very few options in life and ultimately you are either prey for the many anarchic war bands that sweep the ruins of the old Ceyfipe civilizations or you are part of that war band who pilfers, defiles, and murders either for sport or necessity. Either party is trapped in a ceaseless struggle that is only exasperated by the tumultuous nature of the wasteland itself.

Buhari Swakhart a man with rich Ceyfipian blood coursing through his veins was born to this land at a time where most youths would most likely die from the unwholesome conditions in which they lived or by some ambiguous incident. Family wasn’t something Buhari learned paternally or maternally in part to the fact that he had never truly seen his mother or father. Instead he learned what a family was fraternally, though most bandits were uncivil and barbaric these roving tribes typically offered an opportunity to lost children and orphans to survive. Buhari’s adoptive family was a gang known simply as Crucible which was led by a brute of a man titled “Cleaver”. It wasn’t long before the orphan had become a man himself and earned a bit of infamy, he eventually found himself as Cleaver’s “Second” or second in command a title that had not been earned before. It was apparent that Buhari was being positioned to ultimately take over the Crucible and that was to the pleasure of some however the displeasure of a great few.

Weapon: Buhari prefers to brawl with adversaries rather than swinging his large sword in frenzy. But, when it’s deemed necessary he unsheathes his steel Claymore and devastates his opponents
Buhari is accepted

Character Name: Erik Yerkir-Teren
Age: 24
Sex: Male
Race, town, region: Bolarench, Teren, Bolaren

Appearance: Erik is fairy average in build and height. His skin is a pale brown and his black hair is incredibly curly. He dresses up in traditional attire, made from leather and decorative feathers hunters have found or obtained throughout their hunts. His eyes are such a dark brown, they can sometimes be mistaken as black. He carries his stone hatchet with him in a small pouch. Other pouches are used to carry berries, medicinal herbs and cooking fat.

Personality: Erik is a very curious man, often spending time wandering around the wilderness documenting birds and animals with a piece of charcoal and leather. Some he named himself, although they all often fall under of the pattern of "Erik's ____". Aside from this, Erik has shown little to no selfishness or ego. He'd rather spend his time helping his tribe and family, cultivating the crops to a high quality. He finds beauty in all things in life, even in the most insignificant of plants.

Biography: The tribes of the Bolarench are divided into "families": Krak, Yekir, Jur and Ody. Every time someone was born within a tribe, they were assigned a family depending on various conditions, such as population or bloodline. Those who were a member of a family could not marry someone of their own. Erik was born into the Yekir family, which helped take care of the crops they learned to cultivate. Erik had heard many stories of the Archduke, and how he liberated the land from Androsita, allowing the native tribesmen to stick with traditions. Acting selfless with the fellow tribespeople over his life, he spent the most time with the Yekir Spiritmother - The oldest member of the family. As the Spiritmother grew older, she started to experience weird visions, telling her to visit the Doutove temple. Howwever, due to her age, the Spiritmother decided to stay with the tribe until she passed away. Determined to figure out what exactly the dreams meant, Erik decided to set off in her honour.

Weapon: A stone hatchet he crafted himself. Not the most efficient tool, but it works.

Character Name: Foretio Armergial

Age: 31

Sex: Male

Race, town, region: Bamorefiese, Brodby, Bamorefia

Appearance: Foretio is a tall figure, not slender but not bulky, he sits somewhere in the middle. He stands at 6’ 6” and weighs 210 pounds. His hair is black and thick and rests at his shoulders. A large scar starts on the right of his face and goes across the bridge of his nose and continues down his cheek on the left. He wears the clothes of a farmer, his tan tunic made from a burlap like materiel and his trousers made from something similar yet darker in color, more brown, however since his journey began he brought out his old iron armor, gifted to him by Lady Cantrielle and the Army of Bamorefia. It consists of a breastplate, shoulder besagues, gauntlets, and a pair of greaves. The besagues and breastplate bear the insignia of the Army of Bamorefia, a large red and black Crocoliean, a native species of reptile resembling a jaguar also know to be an apex predator. The iron armor is well polished and filed, but large dents and cuts remain embedded into it, telling the stories of past battles.

Personality: Though he was a previous lieutenant of the Army, Foretio was not one to talk much. Occasionally he talked to troops and commanding officers but it was never a deep or long conversation. He never initiates a talk, but he has no problem responding when spoken too, something he was taught to do in the military. Foretio mostly seeks solitude and aloneness and most likely suffers from PTSD. Often times he wakes in his sleep from awful dreams of past wars.

Biography: Foretio was born to a family of soldiers, his mother and father both infantry in the Army of Bamorefia. Growing up Foretio was taught to fight and wield a longsword. As he aged more and more, it became clear he was destined to be a fine soldier, maybe even one of the best. At the age of 16 he left home and joined up with the Army, ready to wage battles and wars in their name. Through the years he showed his prowess and skill in battle and floated up the ranks faster than many expected. By his 25’th birthday he was a lieutenant in the army, the youngest ever in the history of Bamorefia. He even was given a set of armor bearing the Army’s insignia over his chest and shoulders. It was specially crafted for him and was meant to show his bravery and dedication to the Lady and the country.

Towards the end of his service he was a part of a special operation with a few soldiers. A small group of towns in the East of Bamorefia were beginning to have protests against Bamorefia’s Lady and her militaristic government. Foretio and a handful of soldiers were sent into the towns to silence the protests before they reached out to other cities. During one such protest the people began to rush Foretio and his men and in the heat of the moment one of the men began to cut down the civilians charging them. The others joined in and soon the crowd began to draw weapons of their own. After 2 hours of fighting Foretio was left with only 3 of his men. They had slaughtered most of the town and were covered in blood and bodies littered the town’s center, many still bleeding. A river of blood flowed down the street, soaking the men’s boots. When Foretio returned to the Lady with news of the event she was disappointed with the outcome, but happy the protests were settled. She then covered up the slaughter as an attack from a village of Gammorbelites in hopes to turn the event from tragedy to martyr. Foretio resigned a few weeks later, never quite shaking the visions of the people being cut down by his blade, the screams of villagers, or the crying of children as they found their parents dead and mangled bodies. Months later the country found itself in a famine, the once rich land slowly losing it's fertility. Lady Cantrielle shifted her focus from a militaristic campaign to one of agriculture and farming, having soldiers trained to become farmersto save the villages and the people. Foretio had already taken up farming, but he only focused on self-sustainment. He had moved himself to a hut outside of Modfery and grew food for himself. Every few weeks he would take a contract to rid the nearby towns of local beasts just to keep his combat skills sharp, but other than that, his armor and sword remained in a chest underneath his bed.

Recently after one such hunt for a crocolien, he returned to his hut and began dreaming of a palace in the mountains and others standing at his entrance. After a month of the same dream over and over, he took his armor and sword along with food and ventured into the hills to find out what the dream meant.

Weapon: Foretio carries a longsword given to him by Lady Cantrielle. Special crafted to his fighting style, the steel blade is weighted perfectly and take little effort to swing. On the handle a small black and red crocolien is carved and painted on. Foretio has a very passive fighting style, one of parrying and blocking, draining the stamina of his opponent. As soon as the enemy makes a miscalculated move, Foretio takes advantage and instantly switches to a very aggressive and fast paced style, typically finishing his tired opponents with heavy attacks after barraging them with quick cuts and fast swipes.

Growing up I thought quicksand would be a much bigger problem than it turned out to be.

Foretio is pending only because of the fact that the Pillars fell silent centuries prior to the events of the RP. What I would say instead is that the plague swept in months after the event.

Username: Ungraceful
Character Name: Zeno Leorio
Age: 30
Sex: male
Race, town, region: Firodite, Pahadh, Firode

Appearance:
Zeno is a tall and lanky man, though he is actually very fit. He has short jet black spiky hair that swishes up and around his head. He has a narrow long sallow face decorated by 2 dark brown squinty eyes, a long narrow nose and patchy light facial hair surrounding his thin lips. He wears a large plain white cloth around his head like a hood noted at the neck, just above his weaved leather vest. Underneath his vest Zeno wears a long sleeve dark green shirt. He also wears green tight pants with leather greaves over his knees and shines. His shoes are made of cloth with wooden stilted bottoms.

Personality:
Zeno is a loner so he can come off as quiet to most people but he's actually very argumentative in his head. It's like he's constantly disagreeing and chastising others but just chooses to save his input for when it's really needed. When he does speak Zeno is always straight to the point, giving simple yes's and No's and quick precise descriptions. When it comes to any job Zeno likes to do his best and becomes frustrated when he isn't doing as good, but he doesn't like to give up while people are watching and will sometimes even begin to obsess if given the time. He's a workaholic who's happier when completely out of energy and rarely takes time for himself. Despite his redeeming qualities Zeno considers himself a man too far past redemption. He would freely end someone's life for a good enough reason and only draws the line at torture, so children are fair game. He would only kill if paid enough(500 gold pieces is his usual price) or given the right motivation.
Biography:

Zeno was once a simple farmer with his own plot of land. Life was simple then. But then the king died and Firode fell into civil war. For a farmer outside the capital walls war was always knocking on Zeno's door and so he learned to fight with farming equipment. With 2 scythes he killed anyone who intruded on his land and hide their bodies in the cellar. Eventually he just got so used to killing he decided to become a mercenary and work for whichever side paid the most, and apparently he wasn't the only one with that idea. Entire mercenary armies fought for each side, each soldier was promised thousands in gold coins if they came home alive. He fought in several battles and eventually joined a group of mercenaries without a name. The mercenary group wasn't large or well known, but they took up jobs other then those related to war.

Despite having new friends they rarely lasted very long and the war toiled on. Zeno never faltered however, as if his life had no other meaning, and lived long past everyone else in his group eventually becoming it's new captain. It was only shortly after becoming captain that Zeno began having strange dreams telling him to appear at a specific summit. He resisted the dreams for a while but eventually set off with only 2 others from his party. It was a tough journey and both of his men died on the way but Zeno continued.
Weapon:

-2 shotels-
Zeno's first weapons were 2 scythes he once used as gardening tools, but he traded them for curved blades once he started making good money. He still uses them in a similar manner to how he used his scythes, by catching blades and shields then pulling them out of the users grip, but they are actually meant to be able to stab from around shields.

-13 smoke bombs-
-9inch knife-

Username: Toffolus
Character Name: Akrijit Wisetusk (First names are familial whilst surname compose of an attribute and their first gift)
Age: 24
Sex: F
Race, town, region: Gammorbelite, Nut, Gammorbel
Appearance: Due to being surrounded by the swampy landscape of the land around them, Wisetusk’s fur is similar to a platypus: brown and fuzzy, but also very waterproof. Being more built for the water, her fur covers less area of her body: instead of all over, Wisetusk’s fur is only located on her limbs and the top of her head. Wisetusk herself is slightly muscular build coated in a thin layer of fat to supply warmth. Her face is humanoid like other species, with the exception of her ice-white irises and larger canines. She covers herself with clothing made from animal hide and paints tattoos on her torso with Red Nutalis - a rock common in her region.
Personality: Wisetusk is a very cautious person, constantly observing her surroundings for potential threats and dangers. She’s very wise and can inform people of the statistics in the land, gaining her name-sake. However, she tends to explain this information in the tongue of her tribe, rather than the common tongue of other people. She likes to keep things professional in serious situations, but always loves to have a good laugh when the ordeal is over.
Bio: “Dreamwalker. The first in hundreds of years...”
Wisetusk is the daughter of a Psory explorer travelling The Nut Valley who spent time with the local shaman before he returned to his tribe. The shaman trained Wisetusk the arts of using the land’s terrain as a source of knowledge. She learnt that Nut was icy and in the middle of Bamorefia due to an ancient war between the two nations. The Gammorbelites attempted to use large chunks of pillar crystal to convert land into ice. Only one attempt was successful, and that area was the one they lived in.
Wisetusk also learned from a lucid hermit (who would gather her cousin) that she held immense magical energy - Dreamwalkers. The hermit, who was otherwise blind, sensed her due to her affinity and immediately what she was.
Wisetusk told everyone about her revelation, and whilst she was originally cast aside as a lunatic, people began her more as she started experiencing weird dreams of a pilgrimage and visions of events past and in the near future. She was thusly given her staff and was sent to travel to Doutove.
Weapon: A wooden staff with what resembles a dream-catcher woven on top. Animal tusks and canines dangle from the sides of the staff.
