CHARACTER APP

 

1. Character Name: (This is your character's name!)

Silla

2. Character Backstory: (This is your character's general backstory!)

Silla was born from a Snowind mother and a demonkin father, he was born with glowing cat-like eyes and skin paler than the snow on the ground. His father had to return to Demonic Steppes, but not without giving the boy a stone mask carved to be a polar bear to hide his eyes. His father sent him out into the wilderness like he himself was raised and told Silla to not return until he survived in the wilderness for two years, his father only handed him a worn knife. The young snowind went out to do what his father said, he slept in the snow and in trees later in his stay in the tundra.

Silla soon found himself hungry, he tried to pass it off by eating the snow to quench his thirst and hunger, this lasted him two weeks before he needed something more substantial so he started trying to hunt the creatures of the tundra. Of course, it was hard at first, the arctic hares and foxes were quicker than him, so he had to make use of poorly made traps that consisted of wood and a stone. Silla picked up a stone that he could use to knock the stick out from under the rock. Silla went to walk away from the trap, but in viewing distance. It took a few hours but something did come to the trap, but when he threw the stone the stone fell too late only barely getting a fox's tail. 

Silla hunted small game for a few months until he hungered for more of a challenge, where he decided to hunt a bear that he has seen in the area,  the Snowind climbed the tree he slept on with a few rocks in his hands to throw to gain the bear's attention. The bear arrived during the night, Silla smiled as he waited for the bear to approach the tree. Silla jumped down, wrapping her legs around its neck. The bear shook the lad about but Silla held on as he laid his hands on the head of bear, he began freezing the bear's head causing it to drop down on its belly. The Snowind took the worn knife his father gave him and plunged it repeatedly into the bear's head, making sure the beast is dead.

He got off the bear before beginning to carve into it cutting its hide roughly from its skin and cutting the meat when he was hungry. He took bites of the raw meat like he always did just snacking on the meat which lasted him few months as he ate it in moderation. He slept well with the warm fur drape around him. Silla woke the next morning, prepared to go home. His memory was faded from where his Father's home was but he eventually found the igloo that resembled his old home, he called out to his father, but didn't hear a reply. He entered the Igloo to find his blood ridden mother cleaning a spear. The Snownid stood, pointing a spear at Silla's neck, "Have you brought a hunt?"

Silla nodded, held up the fur of the polar bear which his father took inspecting it with a nod, "Quite the find, your Father would be found."

Silla frowned, he was only given his mask from his Father before he left. Would he be proud of what he did, would he had given him a reward. He had many questions about what could've been, but no one to ask. Silla smiled to his mother, clearing his throat, "Mother....I wish....to find father."

"You will, but first we have some things to learn before you do." The older snownid smiles down at his son.

Silla nods his head at his mother, this began his mother teaching him how to forge ice into weapons and other miscellaneous things, he hunted and learned under his mother. His hunger to know more about his father and the world sated a bit until his turning of 32 ages. His mother was still youthful as ever, she still out stride his son though. His mother during this time also sat him down to discuss a issue, "Son, us fey have a special gift called the Fae Spark. It allows us to still connect to our Fae Court. I don't know with your heritage you'll still have it but if you do, you will unlock it by connecting to your soul through meditation and patience."

"Can't you just show me how now," Silla scratches his chin.

"Well, I can only guide you through the vision to your spark."

"So when will you guide me?"

"When you're ready."

The silence was dead as SIlla just stared at his mother absently before sighing at the empty response of his mother. his mother just took a sip of some iced water, "What do you plan to do now, my child?"

"I want to find father, so I want to travel Anoma to find him."

"It will be long journey, but if you do find him, smack his head for me."

"I will try mother."

The two Near-Feys spent the night eating meat and drinking water as they had a merry time, the next morning, SIlla left to find his father and learn about Anoma.

3. Character's Purpose: (This is what your character seeks to achieve!)

To find his Demonkin father and unlock his spark.

4.  Write a small scenario for how your character reacts to one of the following circumstances, and what ensues:

 

4a. It is night, and you're leaving a tavern by the docks. A man bumps into you, and you feel his hand at your pocket.

Silla shrugs as he didn't have money or anything particularly valuable in his pocket. He maintained his cool and proceeded on his way past the man, offering a cold smile.

4b. You come upon a burning building, and you can hear the sounds of someone shouting from within.

Silla sweats heavily, his icy body unable to stay in the heat of hot building, he goes to the guards for help instead after directing them to the building, Silla hurries to the tundra to regain his icy form.

4c. You come upon an overturned wagon in the road, with a pair of bandits looting the unmoving bodies of its previous owner.

Silla darts forward, a dagger in a reverse grip. He swipes the small blade upward at one of the unexpecting bandits, catching the side of his head. The other bandit alerted to Silla's presence takes up a dagger to aid his partner, Silla tries to sidestep as first thief let loose a punch, catching the side of the Near-Fey's head. Silla drops his dagger, grapping the arm before forcing it behind his back. The thief rocks his head back to collide it with Silla's nose, but the fey grips the back of the thief's head to activate his freezing touch. The second thief during this time would go to Silla's side to slash. Silla adjusts grip on the first thief to shift him to cover his shield like a shield, their body going limp for a round. The second thief cuts his partner, giving SIlla an opportunity to kick the paralyzed thief into his knife partner. The dead weight colliding with them, Silla stepped on the wrist of the second thief, taking their knife and stabbing their hand with their own knife. Silla would take a bag of loot while the two thieves are pinned against each other before running off into the Tundra.

4d. Awaking in the middle of night, you find yourself covered in blood.

SIlla tastes the blood, frowning. He couldn't remember what he did but what he did must've been doing last night, he looked around him to see if he had any carcasses but nothing. Did his father have some control over him to have him unleash some kind of bloodlust. The fey runs his fingers through his white hair quite confused about had happened to get so much blood. He would quickly find a cold stream to wash his clothes and body of the blood.

5. Character's primary axis of morality: (What is the most important thing to your character?) 

Finding his Father and improve Halfbloods' reputation in Anoma.

6. Is your character a good person?

Silla is chaotic neutral, he sees the world in grey. Everyone has evil and good tendencies and he knows that. He himself if need be will use others to fix halfbloods' reputation and find his father. Good or evil, Silla doesn't care as long as he shows that halfbloods aren't all corruption.

PLAYER APP

 

1. Why do you want to play an application race?

I think a Snowind Halfblood would be fun to play and they seem to be a interesting race with alot of potential, both sides that is. Cause you have this halfblood demon that has been tainted by demonic energy either by birth or just corruption being present with the womb. They get wrote off as these demonspawn that spawn corruption when reality, most just want to live like tieflings are in most DnD campaigns. Snowind are a rather new race that no one has applied for and combining the two makes for a interesting character and story to be told

2. How long, and through what mediums have you been roleplaying?

5 years of DnD with two years of MCRP on other servers.

3. Summarize the lore of the specific species you are applying for. This answer very important, tied only with character question number four. Answer with care.

Snowinds are Winter Near-Fey that can look like winter elves or yetis, they have access to the winter fae spark which allows they to forge true ice out of blood from a hunt and the spirit of the ice will judge if its adequate. They also melt and die if they're not back in the tundra after a day. They need to meditate and walk through visions to unlock their spark which they need the help of someone who has done it to guide them through the dream. 

Halfbloods are a common demonic offspring that either have tails, hooves, cat eyes or claws with all of them having horns that most file down like nails. They were belived to be only made between a demon and another race but that has been added to of them being born when the womb is affected by a demon's corrupting power. They're only weak to magical diseases and not non-magical diseases. They also carry the base race traits which in Silla's situation is Snowinds/Winter Near-Fey.
