I’m doing well.
He doesn’t even know what that word means, and the feeling isn’t even completely formed but- *stops, and blinks a few times* He does. He… is having weird feelings for Jericho. His first time… oy… *babies grow up fast* *eish*
…how did that happen? Although, Jericho is single and would not be opposed to companionship.

Haha, and we have another Dharin/Lytt thingy!
(Don’t you hate it when your characters decide to do stuff like that without permission?)

Thanks for filling me in! Could you give me a list of the existing characters? I know the names Nithel and Jericho, but details?
Name: Gavin Thunderfoot, or ‘Thunder’
Abilities: Good swordsman, natural leader, physical strength and speed, and high intelligence
Demeanor: Has mood swings, depending on who he’s with. If he’s with his really close friends, he can be goofy, and funky, but with strangers and aquaintences he can be cold and very serious. He puts others safety before his own
Hobbies: Whittling, honing his skillsMay 5, 2021 at 8:30 pm #133703
Ok! So the characters here are: Nithel, Brendin, Jericho, Malvat and Alessio (I think I’ve got ‘em all…). Lemmie find all the profiles and copy and paste…
Appearance in dragon-form:
(BTW, I’m tailoring these to fit from a section I wrote in my book, so sorry if they’re choppy)
A massive black, dragon with silver eyes. Very long tail. Wings sprout from the beast’s shoulders, made of leathery black hide flecked with silver. The neck is long and lithe, but the head on it is the most impressive.
It’s over six feet in length with a diadem of silver horns crowning the top. The snout is elegant in its way, with wide flaring nostrils and a dished nose. A forked tongue hides behind gigantic teeth, white as snow. The largest ones are three feet long, and narrow to a menacing point.
Appearance in human-form:
A man 6’4″ tall, clad in a color that is not simply black, but a void that seems to suck all life into it. Leathery black wings flare from his back, larger and clearly more powerful than even Lytt’s remember her?). A tail coils on the ground behind him, and the majestic crown of silver horns still adorn his dark locks of hair. His face is handsome in its stern, pointed way, and young. But his eyes tell a different story. They are large, and full of the wisdom of the ages. Silver they are, with slitted pupils resembling that of a reptile. Anger easily sparkles in them, but the wisdom counters it.
The name he answers to is Brendin Warin, though he isn’t sure it still belongs to him. Among the Kelts ‘Brendin’ means ‘dark prince’, an irony which is not lost on him. In appearance he is tall and fit, strong, with light reddish brown hair between his chin and shoulders in length, reddish stubble, and piercing blue eyes. His skin is marred by patches of burns across his arms, shoulders and chest. On his right forearm there is a black mark, about the size of his palm, in the shape of a triangle sided by flames. Brendin is suffering from deep turmoil and furor as a result of his mutilated soul and the loss of his memories, the memories of who he was before his soul was torn. He tries to isolate himself to avoid hurting others when he lashes out.
His appearance and voice are based on Garrett Hedlund (the picture is of Hedlund from the movie Mojave, which I haven’t actually seen…)
…I can’t relocate Jericho’s profile…sorry XD
Nithel son of Father:
Age: Classified, but for simplicity, 21. (You could ask him, it will be fun to see how he answers…hm.)
Height: 5′ 6”. Quite short.
Eye Color: Light brown, with a bit of gold.
Hair: Gold (almost literally, and there is a reason for it), with some brown. It is long, to his shoulders, and thick. But he ties it into a ponytail with a leather strip usually.
Build/other stuff: Thin, but not skinny. He is muscled in the arms, but they are only visible when he’s moving something heavy, from carpentry. His legs have ordinary strength.
Clothes: All look rather old, though he keeps them clean.
At this point he’ll be barefoot. They only where a cloth slipper for special occasions.
His shirt is basically a sheet that has been cut, so a head can stick through it. Holes large enough for arms and the torso have been left open as well, but all the other sides have been sewn shut. The shirt is a pale beige. the sleeves come to just above his elbows.
Pants. Almost the same as the shirt, except a rope is tied around the waist to keep them from falling. They are also a darker brown. The pants go to just above his ankles.
Gait: He walks with short steps, his head usually lowered. But, he still watches all those around him. His footsteps are unsure, unless he is about to help someone. Then he likely has started to run. He runs on the balls of his feet.
Speech: Hesitant and calm, thoughtful.
Unless upset, then it goes quieter, faster, and smoother. (It is against his culture for one to raise their voice to one of the opposite sex.)
Or, if he’s defending someone. Then his voice will get stronger, faster, and smoother as well.
Posture: Relaxed, almost always. Unless defending someone, or about to.
Eye Contact: He meets whoever’s speaking to him directly in the eye. Every time. No flinching.
Face: It is always thoughtful looking, stoic, unless said otherwise.
Other Stuff: He sees his life as nothing, and everyone else’s worth more than the sun. He acts on such.
He is honest, he will not lie, I doubt you can make him.
His sense of when things are unjust is strong, but, he usually can’t think of how to force the offender right the injustice. This doesn’t stop him from acting though. He’s to have a rough life…
He can be fun. He likes to spend time with people. He would truly be the ideal friend.
Weapons: A sling. He is excellent. He could also throw a large amount of dangerous objects in his workshop I suppose.
Name; Alessio (defender) Eliakim (God has raised)
Physical appearance; dark expressive eyes, dark curly hair, olive skin, a scar from his forehead to his left eyebrow, some scars on his wrists and a buncha other scars but those are the obvious.
Personality; very very shy, has a very strong intuition very perceptive, INFJ-t, surprisingly charismatic, human lie detector, compulsively honest/compulsively helps people, kind, strong sense of right and wrong, so idealistic he tends to be gullible, can be very scary if pushed far enough, will not use his powers (long story…the entire first book actually ), if you get past his shell (which is a feat) he’s very sweet and expressive, has a rather morbid deadpan sense of humor, has panic attacks will do anything to hide them, used to being called a coward.
History; ok so the short rundown; there’s a war between the two major world powers in Casumbra (the world) immediately after a previous worldwide revolution against ability-borns who were like the Old Testament prophets (ability-borns are equated with mystical properties too) but they began to abuse their power and normal people found ways to bypass their powers and rebelled and the wizards picked sides and now ability-borns are a hated minority but a lot of people think they’re extinct other people form lynch mobs and then you can the ability-born secret guilds who want revenge. So also, there’s a persecuted religion that people equate with ability-borns, or gifteds, as they were originally called, and through all that the necromancer-lord of the vassal kingdom of the one world power is reviving a snake-cult while plotting treason and then the windigo fever gets released by the real villain and the war’s been going on so long everybody’s beginning to get restless-rebellious and there’s also a prophecy and…this isn’t really a short rundown, is it? I better stop there. But there’s also his betrayed brother and a bounty-hunter and–! I better stop here or I’m gonna spoiler and/or go on for pages. Oh, and also there’s different levels of strength every ability-born has and Alessio is like one of the strongest every seen so all the war leaders consider him a potential asset/danger so everybo–right right, stopping there XD
Biggest motivation; truth
Favorite color; red
Things Alessio likes; philosophical/theoretical/theological conversations, listening in on conversations, learning, music, really likes this vigilante, Thayer, his ballads (who is a symbol of hope and justice to the villagers, a lot of people don the role, and…ok that’s gotta lot of spoilers attached to), uses a bow which his brother gave him (has never killed anyone or anything before) with red feathers off that story, also likes climbing although not quite as, ahem, energetic as Ehud with that.
Things Alessio hates; injustice, bullies, any form a cruelty or manipulation

I’m actually pretty tired, I’ve been dog- and house-sitting the past two nights and didn’t get nearly enough sleep, but last night was the last night and I get to sleep in tomorrow morning 🙂 .
And I’m really excited about my bro, his fiancee is really sweet and kind and I can’t wait for her to officially be my sister. She’s so much nicer to me than my actual sister… 😛 (Difference is my sister is a tough-girl tomboy and my to-be sister-in-law is a girly girl 🙂 ).
So when i introduce my character, where in the castle should i start?
You can just drop Thunder in somewhere around the rooms the others are in, or throw him in the tunnel behind them. Maybe he’s sleeping in one of the beds. Maybe he’s sleeping under a pile of books in the library. Maybe he’s with whatever’s in that curtained-off room…

Thunder coughed, the dust from the old tomes settling around him.
Where am i? What is this place?
He had no memory of entering this dark room, and in fact, he didnt remember much at all, except his name. Gavin Thunderfoot. Or just Thunder.
He pushed himself out of the massive pile of books, old scrolls, and ancient writings tumbling across the cold stone floor. His leather jerkin and buckskin pants were covered in dust, as was the sheath that held his sword. He knew nothing but his name, and that he had to find out where he was, and how to get out.
He walked silently over to the heavy wooden door, with a small looking space at eye level, an he pulled it open. He grimaced at the lound thud it made, hitting the stone floor, alerting everybody and anybody to his existence. He looked down the hall, lit by dim torches, and he decided to take the left. Before he could however, he heard footsteps.
