Songs of the Lance
How would your character describe themselves before a court of their respected peers? Magic will reveal outright lies, but not subtle deceit.
I don’t like to talk about myself much, I’m shy and I prefer not to surround myself with people. I try not to rely on others but I’m not above asking for help when I need it. I love my friends and sister and would do almost anything for them.
what virtues, like courage, generosity, justice, or truthfulness does your character value the most? What qualities does your character despise?
Selflessness is most important to me. If someone is in trouble or needs help I believe you should try to help. Others have gone out of their way to help and protect me and I respect them and I would do anything to help them. When I see someone just sitting there, doing nothing, when they have the influence or materials to make a change, or even to just help, that disgusts me.
What is your character’s greatest strength?
I’m an excellent tracker, and have taught myself how to kill my prey with a well placed arrow. I pride myself on the ability to save the hide and the best meat.
What is your character’s greatest weakness?
I find that in my eagerness to help others, certain people end up walking all over me and taking advantage of my kindness.
Generally it is believed the gods abandoned the world or never existed. Does your character believe in the old gods?
I guess I have never really believed in the gods and I don’t really think they ever existed. If the gods do exist and they have abandoned us wouldn’t it be like they don’t exist anyway?
Describe your character’s family? What are your parents’ like? Do you have brothers or sisters? Which family or friends do you hold most dear?
I never really knew my father because he left when I was very young, but I have been told that he is a dark elf and he wasn’t the most wonderful, but for some reason my mother loved him. My mother was a kind women and she was very loving and forgiving. My sister is interesting, intelligent, and very gifted. She lives with her teacher, but I see her often. I believe one day she will do something great with her gifts.
Everyone has something that is important, whether it is a ring, a sword, or a memento. What is sacred to your character? Explain why it is important.
I have a ring that my mother gave me before she died. It has no magic powers and its not of great value, but for some reason I know its special.
Has your character ever killed someone? If so please describe what happened with as much detail as possible.
I have never killed anyone, and unless its absolutely necessary, I never will.
Does your character have any enemies? If so, why? What happened?
I have been attacked before and I’m still attacked by people who don’t like me for just being what I am, but I wouldn’t call them enemies.
Your character is plagued by a recurring dream/nightmare. Describe the dream.
Many nights I will have a dream of lying in a field out in the forest, when a hooded figure starts coming towards me, I don’t know why, but I’m stricken with fear and try to run, but my feet never move. I always wake before the figure gets to me.
What is your character’s greatest regret?
No one has really told me anything about about my father and I want to know about him.
How do you want people to remember you after your death?
