    Ah! Yes. He and Amy (Alice's mama) were very...fruitful. But hey, when you're married for thirty years and know each other for about fourty you've got a lot of time on your hands, you know? Anyway, here's Titus. (Sorry in advance for no pic. He doesn't actually exist in-game.)

    Name: Titus Psyrakon

    Race: Imperial

    Age: 18

    Class: Warrior

    Afflictions: Lycanthropy

    Gender: Male

    Looks: 5' 0" with a lean muscular body, pale cream colored skin, sapphire blue eyes and a triangular clean shaven face. His long ebony hair goes down to his shoulders and is kept in a ponytail by a leather strip. He almost always wears a confidant smile and is quite handsome when he cleans himself up. He usually smells like sweat though, as he trains and fights alot.

    Equipment: Titus wields a skyforge steel battleaxe forged by Eorlund Gray-Mane, as well as a hunting bow his mother made for him for his eighteenth birthday. He uses steel arrows. He also has a skyforge steel sword and steel shield. None of his weapons are enchanted as he considers all forms of magic a crutch. Something that could diminsh your true skills as a warrior by doing more of the work for you. He wears Nordic steel armor with steel shin boots and steel Nordic gauntlets. He also has two sleevless black shirts and two pairs of olive green pants and a pair of leather boots. Both sets of clothing resemble sackcloth prison outfits but are nicer and more comfortable.

    Personality: Titus is soul of fire and passion. He's curious to the point of being foolish, friendly to the point of being boistrous, self-confident to the point of being arrogant and decisive to the point of bravado. He rushes into most situations bullheaded and meets all problems head on, regardless of the best way to approach them. This has gotten him into trouble many times, not to mention driving his parents nuts, but it also means he doesn't back down from a challange. Titus is driven enough to overcome any obstacle and firmly believes that with enough force and willpower any barrier can be crushed, knocked over, smashed through or otherwise forcibly removed. He also fights to the death for any he calls friend and is unshakably loyal, be it on the battlefield or in a social situation.

    Titus' manners are rather rough and he often speaks before thinking. These traits, combined with being easily frustrated by those in power have gotten him into trouble many times and led to a good number of tavern brawls but he always comes to regret it later. He doesn't wish harm on anyone but sometimes it happens and even though he is slow to learn from his mistakes he always tries to correct them.

    Backstory: Titus was born in the Imperial City in Cyrodiil along with his twin sister Alice. Even though they look similar and were born together, their personalites are very different. Alice has a deep interest in magic and learning while Titus has little interest in such things. He does not share his sister's good manners or sophistication and smashes through obsticales with passion and zeal while Alice, while just as unyielding, is much more cerebral in her problem solving. She looks for ways over or around problems rather than streight through them. This vastly different outlook on life has been the flashpoint of constant conflict between the two siblings but also allows them to complement each other's deficiancies very nicely. As Titus and Alice have grown up, their sibling rivalry has become more focused and competitive. They constantly push each other to be faster or smarter or more perceptive or otherwise improve their young lives.

    When the Thalmor came down on their family and descovered that their father Simus was a Talos worshipper and their mother Amy was a former Blade from the Great War, Titus and Alice reconglized that they needed each other mroe than ever. They fought and bled together as they fled the Imperial City towards Bruma with the Thalmor hot on their heels. Their parents were the guardians, their older brother Stephen the stratagest, their little sister Cilla the morale officer, but Titus and Alice became the sword of the family. They were the first to fight the Bruma guards after they sold them out to the Thalmro and they were the first to take the fight to the Thalmor in the Jerrall Mountains when they caught up with them. That was when things got hard.

    As Simus and Amy bought their four children time to escape, Simus was incapacitated and Amy was struck down and stabbed to death by moonstone blades. Titus watched in horror with his brother and sisters as their mother died before their very eyes. Alice was the closest of them all to her and she flew into a blind rage, charging the Thalmor to try and save her mother. She was quickly struck down and stabbed through the shoulder while Simus was pinned to the ground and had to watch. Alice cried in pain and Titus and Stephen tried to drag her away as she screamed for her mother. A stray arrow hit Stephen in the shoulder and the brothers dropped Alice. The Thalmor were on them and they knew if they tried to carry Alice they would all die. While Stephen carried Cilla away, Titus was forced to abandon his sister and best friend, hoping against hope that their father would survive and protect her. He ran through the snow and never looked back.

    Titus was separated from his brother and sister in Skyrim's wilds and for a week wandered on his own, trying to find his family. In that time he found Whiterun and The Companions. He knew his father was a member and once he told Kodlack Whitemane who he was and had proved himself some, he was welcomed as family. Over a month he trained with his new family, and among this group of warriors in a foreign land he felt he had come home.

    He found Simus and Alice after this month and hugging his sister again remains one of his happiest memories. His father was immensly proud of the strong focused warrior his son had become and despite the loss of their mother, they were a family again.

    Simus and Alice joined the Stormcloaks but Titus remained in Whiterun with The Companions. Simus was sad to leave his son again so soon but he could see this was where he belonged. Titus went on to have his own adventures, bringing honor and glory to both his families and always having good stories to try and one up his sister with whenever they meet.

    It's okay. For some reason, when I visualize him, I see this guy. I have no idea why, as he looks nothing like him.

    I realized that if I am playing Natesse, I have to play Rythe, too. I can leave him to wander all alone! :C He IS my bartender and friend, after all...

    So THREE characters at once... Omg, a first. It shouldn't be a problem though. I think I will make Sebek's presence mostly experimental, having him come and go throughout the story. He really doesn't have much to fear from the draugr being a necromancer, and all.

    Heres my Character Card :) Oh and I don't believe anyone has taken white for their font colour as of yet? ^_^


    Name: Hlíf’Ulfr
    Race: Nord
    Class: Warrior/Hunter
    Gender: Male
    Looks: After many weeks spent in journeying through Skyrim at first glance Hlíf’Ulfr has a rugged look about him although a usually relaxing demeanor. He stands at roughly 6 feet 3, his strong build emphasized by his toned muscles. His brown hair, although not short is always well kept which is more than can be said about his strong jaw upon which forgotten stubble would often appear against his tanned skin. Although he is adamant that it would never longer than this stubble. This stubble at times would be accompanied by war paint, painted to resemble bloody scratches along his face, thought removed at first opportunity upon entering a town or city. His chocolate brown eyes, gentle yet pensive most often times would smolder with unknown emotion and gleam with an almost childish interest but could change to become unreadable in an instance if he so chose.

    Personality: Many different things could be said about his way of acting all of this strongly depending on circumstances. Even when first met one could tell that behind his words he is always analyzing not only the words he hears spoken but the things, people, places, and everything else around him. This may if only explained to you and not having encountered him may give one the impression that he was not the best of listeners as he seems to always be in his head but the opposite is true. Hlíf’Ulfr has been said to have a inborn gift for making people feel heard and will listen intently and with genuine interest when the situation calls for it, concern to those he meets. Hlíf’Ulfr had always been more of a listener than a talker, although thoroughly enjoying deep conversations he is an introvert at heart, preferring one on one. This is not to say he is not a sociable person as when he so chooses he will immerse himself in many groups although he prefers a few close friends compared too many acquaintances. He is comparable to a vault of his own and countless others secrets, and does not easily trust others with all he is.
    The warm and friendly side to Hlíf’Ulfr may quickly change. When angered or when his morals or values are violated his face becomes like a stone, no emotion is shown and likewise his voice becomes hard, condescending, and unwavering. When in this state he is quick and clever often if he finds it unfit to walk away devastation his opponent. This side of him does not often surface as he is generally tolerant, this behavior also does not carry over to friends or those who did not intentionally do wrong. In these cases he prefers to walk away and later have a calm conversation to resolve the problem.
    Although rather reserved in some ways as a fighter he is anything but weak. He is skilled with many one handed weapons as well as the bow. Deadly, cunning, skilled, and accurate he fights with all that is in him, as with everything else pouring his very heart and soul, all that is his being into this that is one of his arts. Although he does not take joy in killing he will not hesitate to cut down an enemy that has well earned its demise.

    Likes, Dislikes, Bio: You’ll have to learn these from him for yourself, have something you’d like to know? Send him some correspondence, maybe a letter requesting a meeting or if you happen to encounter him on your own journeys approach him and ask him yourself.

    Well, I just filled my last slot, but I have two others that were supposed to join but I haven't heard from in a few days... I will put you on a wait list and if neither of them get back to me in another few days I will bring you in. I will message you as soon as I know. :)

    Are you in any other RPs?

    I used to be in many, but put it down for a while. I wanted just a refresher because these RPs greatly improved my writing skills and creativity. If I do get a spot in this RP, I don't think you will regret it.

    Weeeeeell...if you're writing is fairly exceptional, I will consider making another slot, bringing the total to seven. Message me your best intro and we'll see.

    Sound fair? :)

    It really depends on the setting. Environment can play a large role in some posts. Have we decided where to start, or is there still some debate?

    No, no. It doesn't have to be this RP, it could be anything.

    How about...the setting is Riften. You've just come through the gates.

    Oh, and the poll is open for three days. I want to get all the player's opinion. You can cast a your vote as well.

    Well technically he is pansexual, but since there are no beast races here yes, for all intents and purposes, he is bi. :D

    Now that I think of it, the only straight characters are Nadir and Kiera. Everyone else is bi-or pansexual. o_O
