    Wik Human Ranger Archer

    Background

    Wik was the child of a yeoman farmer. His father was also an accomplished bowman and served the local lord as an archer whenever the levies were called. He taught his son to use a bow as well. Unfortunately, the local lord got entangled in an internal struggle within the nobility of the Kingdom. Wikís father died in a battle and the local lord was stripped of lands and title. The new lord had no love for the local people and has been ruling with an iron hand. His familyís lands were tied to the lord and so they have been taken and given to men loyal to the new lord. He turned to hunting to provide food for his mother and younger sister. He was soon branded an outlaw for taking the lords deer and fowl. He took to living in the wild and soon met up with a band of other disenfranchised men. Most had served the old lord and had no love for the new authority. They took to raiding those who traveled roads in the wilder parts of the lordís domain. Mertainís Marauders as they came to be known on wanted posters nailed in every local village took pains to only take part of the travelersí goods unless they were lordís men. Often times they took merely a few turnips from a farmer going to market or a song from a wandering minstrel and Mertain became infamous for stealing kisses from ladies and leaving them their jewels. Often merchants would return from the forest with the bulk of their goods and still drunk from joining the Marauders in a forest feast. It was a good life and the local lord lacked the resources to chase the Marauders from the wilds with so many of his own men caught and striped of weapons and tax money.

    Wik was an able archer and thief and soon became skilled in woodcraft and surviving the wilds. The reputation of his bowman-ship helped the Marauders to bring down many a victim without drawing a blade. The large green fletched arrows striking suddenly on a wagon seat or in a tree beside a travelerís head were often enough to elicit cooperation from travelers.

    But change comes to all men good and bad. The depredations of the Giants brought the local lord down, but also destroyed the village where Wikís mother and sister lived. With their friends, enemies and families killed, Wik and many of the Marauders swore to fight the Giants. Mertain was one of the first to fall in an early skirmish. Wik has been fighting for some time now and learning about his quarry. He knows their habits and even some of their language. After so many losses the Marauders have been effectively disbanded and the few survivors scattered. He has joined an official band of adventurers in hopes of securing a pardon for past crimes though there is some doubt that he will live long enough to collect such a pardon.


    Appearance/Personality

    Wik moves with the grace of great cat hunting in the forest. His body is finely honed and his motions confident. He glides noiselessly from shadow to shadow in a cloak that seems to fade into the background. His hide armor is carefully fitted with a vambrace on the left arm while the right is bare except for an Archer's glove. The blades he wears are secondary to the massive great bow he carries. It never leaves his side. His long dark hair is neatly pulled back and tied with a black ribbon. His van dyke beard is pointed like a dagger extending an inch below his chin with waxed mustaches above. His green eyes miss little while the sly smile never seems to leave his lips.

    He has seen much loss and suffering in his life and copes with dark humor. While he has been known to lapse into dark moods of drink and brooding silence he is much more often playing the laughing rogue with gusto. He is slow to trust, but loyal to the death once he makes a friend. He often questions authority and has little respect for titles, but his true hatred is reserved for the Giants.

    background
    House Arellic had held the border for five generations in the Margravate of Crystalmir March. Five generations where it sent its sons and daughters to fight the kingdom's wars. And Gwenn had been raised to be the sixth. But in a chain of events that even now she didn't fully understand, the crown had turned against her family, declared them outlaws, and handed their lands to her family's oldest enemies all in the name of 'peace'. Not surprisingly, her father had raised his banner in rebellion. Also not surprisingly, the open rebellion he led had been crushed, and Gwenn barely escaped with a handful of supporters to the mountains. No closer relatives than an illegitimate cousin survived the open rebellion, and even some of those had died to get her to safety, no matter that even as a teenaged girl she was a natural with a blade.

    She has been leading a band of outlaws since then, reminding the crown of its betrayal and the people of who their leige lady truly is. And now the other shoe has dropped, and the other enemy the Arellics had always guarded against is menacing her home. And that craven fool who called himself a king knew her too well; she couldn't think of not trying to stop them. If she hadn't seen some of the damage herself, Gwenn might have thought it a ruse to draw her out. But it wasn't.
    story
    - two years ago -

    "We've been at this for a decade," Gwenn told her oldest friend, rehashing an old argument. "And we still have the same problem."

    "The king did not worry about collateral damage when he forced your father from his duchy." He said.

    "And he was threatening one margrave with the resources of the entire kindgom. Whereas we have a handful of people who know for sure I am even alive and just maybe the support of peasants here in my margravate, those of father's bannermen who were allowed to surrender and bend knee rather than be killed in battle, and just possibly a few other lords and merchants not enamored with the new order. That's not enough to beat him. And if we managed to create a general rebellion in the kingdom, we'd be leaving the country wide open to invasion." She said.

    "And you won't attend to the matter personally, either." He said.

    "I could do it. Probably. Though rumor has it he's brought in some very highly skilled guards, and if he has any enemies that justify that kind of expense except me, I don't know about them. But assuming I could do it, then what next? Proclaim myself queen over a score of closer relatives, with an army that is not loyal to me? Marry a son of a man I just killed? Keep killing kings until they got the message -- or managed to hire an assassin good enough to find and kill me, of course?" Gwenn replied. "That's a recipe for civil war, and one of our neighbors would surely be tempted to invade in the chaos."

    Background

    Lucan began working on the song many years ago. At first, when his career had just begun, it was a heroic ballad in honor of an unnamed warrior poet. He performed fragments of his work in front of ambivalent crowds in taverns all across the countryside. One of the men in the audience, a raspy-voiced traveler, handed the performer a card. And so, two months later, after his initiation into the Order of the Singing Blade, Lucan added another verse to his poem. It developed a haunting melody that told the tale of a man who lulls people to sleep with song and then plucks their hearts out.

    Lucan's position in the guild was to perform for noblemen at night, and to kill them before sunrise. Such was the way. He did not care for the life, but each mission, each performance, was a chance to add a note to the melody or a word to the lyrics. Until one time, too drunk to focus, his blade missed its mark. His cover blown, Lucan made a hasty retreat, but the Singing Blade doesn't make allowances for error. The bard fled deep into the woods, where he lived for four years. His song went unsung that whole time.

    And one day, he joined a crew of wandering adventurers, and again he found cause to sing his songs. With allies at his back, he had an audience. And over time, he even found a handful of friends. Then the giants came, and Lucan found a chance to write his next canto; a song writ in the blood of tyrants.

    Backstory

    Deacon Ambersharn comes from a relatively simple town. He enlisted as a soldier at a young age, and displayed considerably prowess on the batttle-field, such that his commanders decided to give him and some other select soldiers special training, turning them into a sort of elite soldiers, trained to protect the most important of government and military officials. His services were soon called upon, as his city was subject to a prolonged war with an ambitious Orc chieftain. The city eventually began to crumble under the waves of Orcs sent against them, and Deacon and a few of the others in his regiment were assigned to evacuate the Thane and his family. However, on their way out, they were waylaid and captured by the Orcish chieftain. After a good few months of imprisonment (during which he picked up the basics of the Giant language, as well as an ability to ignore pain as a necessity), Deacon and one of his allies managed to escape, but the Thane had already been tortured and killed.
    Knowing that they would be discharged from the army should they return having failed to protect such an important figure, the two went their separate ways, away from their city. Deacon was looking for a place were he might put his talents to use, working a few odd jobs as a mercenary to make some money. He did a few odd jobs as a bodyguard, or as a traditional adventurer, retrieving lost artifacts or wiping out bandit nests (though there was that one group that neither he nor any of his other compatriots could never get rid of, those Marauder figures). With the threat of the giants, however, Deacon found a new calling, polished up his hammer, and headed out. He tracked down one of his old adventuring companions, Brook, and the two have been searching for more able-bodied adventurers to aid them in their quest.

    Mannerisms
    Deacon, in general, is relatively friendly and diplomatic. Though earning his trust isn't too difficult, a life of war has taught him to not form attachment to others. As a result, he also tends to be somewhat independent in and out of combat, relying more on his own skill and strength than on that of others. Though he doesn't harbor any particular hatred for giants (that right is reserved for Orcs), he rather likes civilization. Besides, they speak the same language. They're close enough.

    Background

    Brook, the runt of his family was left to care for himself at an early age. He was caught stealing from a monastery and as punishment was indentured into service of the monks. Though nominally a servant he proved bright and showed the ability to learn from his surrounds, eventually being accepted as a student and being inducted into their secrets.

    He progressed well as a student of the divine runes, showing aptitude in combining them with the martial practices taught at the monastery. Eventually however, he tired of the spartan prison like existance in the monastery and was allowed to leave, after taking a vow to use his knowledge and skills to protect civilization.

    He spent many seasons patrolling the borders of the wildlands with various companions, helping protect the various villages and towns from the savage humanoids beyond, growing in his skills and excelling in bringing down foes larger than himself.

    In his travels in the area he has heard of a local rebellion. A group of rebels loyal to a local lord who had been declared a traitor to the crown.

    In his investigation of the rebellion he ran into Deacon, an old adventuring companion. Deacon filled hm in about the threat the giants posed to the area. Deciding the giants are the greater threat to civilization in the area they have begun looking for experienced warriors to help investigate and neutralize the giant menance


    Appearance

    At first glance Brook appears mainly human, although his slightly elongated snout and canines mark him as a longtooth Shifter.

    He has brown air and a dark brown skin typical of his race.

    Typically he is dressed in a traveling robe over hide armour. The armour has a strange, stonelike, texture and is abrasive to the touch. He wears a baldric over the armour indicating his allegiance to the Monastery of the Word of the World, a small sect of monks and scholars who believe that through the study of life, nature and themselves they will be able to find the original word they believe gave form to the world.

    He is often seen carrying a glaive as his weapon of choice, covered in strange arcane and divine symbols which give off an eldrich glow.

    Background

    Aelar was born in the Winterwoods of the Feywild as part of a small community of elves that returned to the Feywild to live there, but unlike their Eladrin cousins in balance with its primal energies rather than bending it to their will with arcane power.
    Aelar became druid but liked to explore the darker parts of his surroundings, encountering a place where the Feywild brushed with the Shadowfell. He learned much there about the power of darkness and how the fight for survival can become even more desperate. Even more important, he found his faithful companion, Shade, one of the rare black pelted blink dogs there.
    At last he ventured to the material plane, wanting to see the core of existence that was neither the vibrancy of the Feywild, nor the gloom of the Shadowfell. But his roots never left him, as he concentrated on summoning beast from the Feywild and always having Shade around.
    He doesn't like to speak about what forced him to revisit the Feywild and what strange pact he made, but he returned with iceblue eyes, a deeper understanding of the powers of winter and a new staff that changed his magic to freeze his enemies to the death.

    background

    Miranda is the daughter of a powerful wizardess and an efreet noble. She was raised in her father's citadel, in an inhospitable land far from the realms of mortal men. Her heritage earned her many enemies among the efreet, though, and her parents sent her to learn from the same arcane instructors who had tutored her mother many years ago. Miranda proved to be a gifted wizard herself, and her ancestry made her especially skilled with fire spells. For several years, she traveled through the lands of men, learning how to harness her arcane powers. In time, she even traveled to the land where her mother had been born- only to find that the country was now tormented by raiding giants. Declaring herself an emissary of the efreet courts, she offered her assistance to the local ruler, to help deal with the massive troublemakers.


    description


    At a casual glance, Miranda might be mistaken for an attractive, though exotic, young human woman. A closer look reveals the truth- she is half-human, and half-efreet. Her skin has a noticeable golden cast- in the right lighting it looks almost metallic. She has a pair of small horns on her forehead, though these are often hidden by her long, wavy black hair. And there seem to be tiny flames dancing in her eyes... She tends to dress in the fashion of a desert noble- full flowing robes of red and gold silk, light soft boots, and a swirling hooded cloak. Even the lightweight armor she wears is decorated with flowing golden script like twining strands of flame. Her only obvious weapon is a long staff of fire-darkened wood set with a dark red gemstone.
