CHARACTER APP

 

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

Zalxius

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

“Have him thrown out. Or maybe he can be used as dog food.”

Fole’kmai said in his ever-demanding tone, his voice echoing through the long hallway, “But--.. S-Sire, this is-- this is your son! Have you--.. Have you no honor? No di--” Fole’kmai looked back, furrowing his brows in almost disbelief, though there was a hesitance in his voice, and tears in his eyes, “.. -Silence. Do you forget who you speak to?” The strong Ae Il’ha yelled towards the simple human librarian, as Hei’kara stumbled back, before sighing, “I-.. I apologize.. My liege..” Fole’kmai would then wave his hand dismissively.

“Throw. Him. Out.”

Hei’kara looked down at the demonkin, his mother, a demonkin, was murdered by his own father. The woman had masked herself as a Rehk to survive, most to all of her demonkin-like features had been cut off but Fole'kmai was rather aware a few months after knowing her, considering her episodes of pain from said areas, as well as scarring leftover from said procedures. One would think because of the rather religious environment he would have killed her right away, but he had already been in love with the woman, and all of the tropes he had been taught by his family were proved wrong, and right, countless times by the woman. 

However upon having the child, it seemed the secret was given away to everyone, and his father showed no mercy to anyone, not even his own wife, who was of tainted blood. But he only did this, because it was in the title. His father did hold care for the woman, but played it off as if he had not known, for if his image were to be ruined, it would be likely the entire place that was Xemara would be in ruins as well. It greatly pained him to end the woman, but he figured it a mercy for him to deal with her, rather then she be publicly tortured and likely set afire or hung later. His father, at a point, wanted to care for the beast known as Zalxius. But as he gave him away so early in his life, and had known what would happen, along with the beliefs of his family being pressured on to him from day one, the desire for his son didn't last long. 

Hei'kara had watched Fole'kmai grow as a person for many years, and knew how the man truly felt.

This caused the librarian to have other plans. Simply nodding to Fole’kmai, and leaving the large castle structure. However, he had no intention of throwing Zalxius away. Hei’kara was but a simple librarian, he owned his own land, outside the large kingdom of Xemara. He had a long past with Fole’kmai, the Lord of said Xemara. And so many years ago, they were close friends. But it seems, the phrase that power changes people was right. They were far from friends now.

The boy-- was meant to be the prince. However, he was not accepted as a demonkin. In fact, no demonkin were accepted, the same going for Halfbloods. Fole’kmai was a religious man, and he refused to let his city ‘fall to it’s knees by the hands of the tainted.’

But Zalxius was lucky Hei’kara was a soft-hearted man, and would never leave a child to die. But his wings and tail-- well, they just wouldn’t do. Hei’kara brought the boy home, to the large library, and decided he would father him. A fast decision at that, and the man had no idea what he was getting himself into. But still, he had made a final decision. He couldn’t just leave the child to die, nor give him a pat on the back and say “Go get em’.” Before leaving the boy to his own devices. He decided to teach the boy that the original tainted path, carved just for him, would not fit. And if Hei’kara failed? Well, he could only hope he was still strong enough by then to be rid of Zalxius. 

As he got home, he knew it would be better to get rid of the wings and tail while he still could, he got to work, and but a few hours later, the boy was only with horns. Hei’kara was not going to hide who the boy truly was from him, but he was going to make sure to hide it from everyone else. He decided he could better pass off as a Rehk then anything else, getting the idea from his mother, he was strong and had thick skin, and passing him off as a half-blood still meant he was tainted-- it just wasn’t safe.

The small child yawned, but upon feeling the agonizing pain from his recent ‘surgery’ of types, he would let out a wail, beginning to cry uncontrollably, as a child would of course. Hei’kara wasn’t an amazing medic, he had his books to teach him what he needed to know of course, but he was lucky enough to have makeshift supplies to even do the work, however, he had nothing to kill the pain. 

The years went by rather slowly for Zalxius, he was taught to keep the books in check, sort them, and help clean around the home. But he was shown love from his father-like figure nonetheless, every night there was dinner on the table, a comfy bed to sleep in, and a warm fire to keep the place a nice temperature for the boy. For Hei’kara, however, it seemed like the days just flew by, and it made him sad to watch Zalxius grow so quickly.

It was extremely tough to keep the library in shape with Zalxius around however, his taint would only spread more and more, and to make sure it wasn’t noticeable Hei’kara would occasionally have them go on long vacations. It was only natural that such a tainted creature would spread taint rather easily. But to keep this to a minimum, or maybe not at all, Hei'kara took the boy with him, and they traveled around the Old Lands, selling books, and buying them. Even sometimes going on small adventures, through mountains and forests.

There were, of course, times when the boy had gotten close to death. Whenever Empyreans or Drakofrys were seen around, he would immediately be sent to the back room and put in a small room with a hidden trapdoor. Even if they weren’t in the library, they were still a danger. And if Zalxius was found, that wouldn’t be the end of it, because then it would be apparent that the old man himself was harboring demonkin.

But soon, Zalxius was an 8’1 tall ‘Rehk’. With two large pairs of horns jutting from his head, and bright Hazel Wood colored eyes, newcomers to the library were slightly surprised upon seeing him, and a bit suspicious, but those who went there often seemed to-- well-- care less about him. However soon, people became more and more suspicious, until someone decided they would test the theory that he was not a Rehk at all.

The person in question was known as Amaeria, a simple, small, but smart Spring Elf. She often came to the library for books about plants, but this time she would bring a platinum dagger with her. Upon going into the library, she would move straight for Zalxius, unsheathing the dagger and holding it out for him

“I was wondering, might I trade this for books?” The girl asked, Zalxius looked down towards her, and simply smiled, “Let me see..”

 He held out his hand for the dagger, and the girl grinned, placing it into his hand. Zalxius would let out an agonizing scream, flinging the dagger across the library as he trembled, his other hand moved to hold his wrist as he looked back up at the girl, his eyebrows furrowing. He had felt pain before, but never like this. Was the metal hot?? It didn’t seem hot-- and it didn’t burn the girl.. But as anger filled his mind he began to lowly snarl, his temper snapped. The girl flinched, staring up in fear. She had planned it out, but that didn’t take away the fact how much bigger Zalxius was compared to her. Hei’kara rushed over, waving his hands towards Zalxius, “Stay calm my boy, it was mere accid-” Zalxius furrowed his brows, shaking his head in anger as he let out a low snarl, hitting Hei’kara away harshly, a gross noise coming from the librarian as his body slammed against the counters wood, a few spikes that were there for decoration stuck into his skin, he attempted to scream, yet his mouth was too dry to follow through with this. 

As Zalxius’ head darted in the direction of Amaeria-- in which, she was running towards the exit of the library, “Come back, little girl. Aren’t you going to apologize?” He screamed towards the terrified girl, beginning to run towards the exit, before he felt a weak tug as his arm, and looked down to see his step-father. Hei’kara looked up at Zalxius, blood draining from his mouth as he coughed, a large wound at his back was causing blood to soak his shirt, “Please-- c-calm.. Down.. Y-You’ll hurt s-some.. One..” 

Zalxius paused, falling to his knees to stare at Hei’kara. They sat there for many long moments silently, Zalxius had nothing to say, and Hei’kara? No enough energy to say what needed to be said. The old man was far from saving, and Zalxius knew it. 

A few tears fled from his eyes, yet as he heard distant cheering, screaming and arguing, as well as occasional bangs of what they could only assume to be swords against shields, he looked up, his ears pointing down. Hei’kara knew that that marching was no happy crowd, and that girl was bringing her town and more with her to be rid of the library, and more specifically, Zalxius. Hei’kara tugged at Zalxius once more, to get his attention, he weakly pointed towards the back room, knowing there was an exit, and he nodded.

“Go.. Leave, while you can.. D-Do not come back, and hope y-you never see t-that girl again..”

Zalxius nodded, but before he went he gave Hei’kara one last hug, he didn’t want to leave him, but his father wouldn’t make it even 20 feet from the library. The demonkin would then swiftly get up, tears continuing to fall from his eyes as he would remove his father’s old long-sword from the wall, and then quickly leave.

He held a hatred for that girl. As he stood from the faraway forest, and watched the library begin to distantly burn, however as he saw the crowd leaving, cheering and lifting the girl up in their arms, as if she were some hero. He couldn’t help but follow them in nothing but pure anger and hatred.

As night began to fall, he looked over the various houses, but as he saw the vibrant red colored hair move into a house, that was the one. The one house that was going to burn, and she can burn along with it. He skittered off, finding some alcohol and a cloth. With a stick and a rock, he hit them together until said cloth ignited aflame, he smirked, holding the bottle in his hand. Before moving towards the woman’s house quickly, and in a swift motion, threw the bottle, as the house suddenly erupted into flames, the bottles glass shattering over the ground. As the flames flickered, a few thoughts came into his mind. 

He would scoff, spitting at the ground, and he found himself leaving quickly soon-after.

“You burnt my home. You took the life of an innocent man. So I’ll do the same to you, you selfish bitch. You and your damned city can burn in hell. There’s no rest for the wicked.” As he watched the once standing town, slowly crumble into ashes, he knew he had placement elsewhere. He remembered a name, the New Lands called ‘Anoma’. And soon he was on his way to said ‘Anoma’.. Zalxius overheard his father speaking about it days before his death with one of the customers coming to borrow books, and it wasn’t all that hard to find more information about it either.

 

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

He just wants to make a library, and sell books in peace. Continue his fathers legacy. He believes he has already carried out enough revenge, knowing his father would never want him to continue further. But this doesn’t stop the occasional thought popping in his mind.

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 in your pocket.

He would turn quickly to the thief, grabbing his collar and dragging him off, there were too many people at the tavern to deal with him there. The man would find a place in the nearby forest, before slamming the thief against the tree

“Find your own shit, thief.” 

He spat at the man, and but a few hours later, he left him lying on the floor with more than just bruises.

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

He looked up at the burning building, and it slightly reminded him of the burning library.

He relived the distant memory, before he sighed. He looked towards the path, and then back at the building. 

“Oh-- god damn it..”

He sighed, before he began running inside quickly. He ran towards the screaming, and picked up the screaming individual, before he quickly left the house, setting the person down, and scattering off quickly, doing his best not to be seen by anyone who had gathered.

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

He raised a brow at the bandits, and upon just walking near then, they looked up at him, and at first they were just going to attack him, but as he flashed a sharp, toothy smile, they stumbled back, before running off. The man simply kicked the body to the side, before shoving anything of importance into a small bag, looking around and then moving off quietly.

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

He looked down at the blood, before simply letting his head fall back to the pillow.

“No.”

 

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

 He wants to create a library and sell books.

6. Is your character a good person?

Sort of, depends on how you look at it.

He will never do something inherently evil for the sake of being evil.

However he’s quick to judge and easily gets snappy with people he believes to be rude or otherwise. His temper is extremely short, and most things he does have to be powered by self-gain, or past experiences.

He has a natural hatred for Spring Elves, but won't do anything irrational, most likely he'll be ever slightly rude.

But from what he was taught, he is still kind at heart.

PLAYER APP

 

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

The lore of races you have to apply for is always interesting, and I absolutely love there being such a harsh difference between application races and base races. They are overall unique and bring a lot of fun to play as, and to play with.

 

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

A couple years(I forgot the specific number), through a little D&D, MC RP on things such as Elysium, LOTC(Redacted), fnafsisterserver(We don’t talk about this one), and also a bit of cringy high-school rp that didn’t last long, I also roleplayed on plot based servers like IDMC, and eventually came to LF after hearing about it from my friend Josey. (J0S3Y)

 

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.

Demonkin are the mix of mortals, and blooded. However, they look more like blooded, then anything else. They are known for their power, being twice as strong as their base race, usually being quite tall and large, a remarkable foot taller than their base race usually was. They also seem to be known for their explosive tempers. They have very thick skin, much like harsh leather, leaving molten metals to simply roll off the creatures. They can survive extreme heat up to 1,200 degrees. However, they are weakened in cold weather, despite being fine in ambient cold, in weather below -100 degrees they will die twice as fast as any normal person would.

Demonkin typically have vestigial wings, claws, cloven hooves, and a prehensile tail. This tail has barb on it, and if someone is stung by said tail, it will cause them extreme agonizing pain, yet using the tail will make them have to wait to use it again. The creatures also seem to be capable of seeing perfectly fine in complete darkness.

Unlike many other cultures, the Kindred accept and actively promote demonkin. In fact, most of demonkin parents are members of the Kindred. But there is also an Order of Purification, helping the beastly race to learn self-discipline, and resent their original explosive and murderous nature. However, many of the creatures try to avoid both like the plague, hoping to not be sucked into one or the other.

Heartsey, your application is pending. You’re so close! Your app is very will written, you just had a couple minor lore issues. The following are changes you need to make before you are accepted;

 

  •  Demonkin are not born by Demonkin and Gaians coupling. The only way in which they can be created is when a demon has sex with a mortal. Please amend your backstory and lore summary (blooded are the spawn of demons, not demons). In adition to this, I find it highly unlikely that your character's father would not have realized sooner (i.e. before a child was made) that the mother was a demonkin, as their wings and tail, unless removed, are fairly obvious when the demonkin is not wearing a covering garment. 

  • Demonkin spread corruption; corruption that manifests the longer they spend in a specific area. If your demonkin spent his childhood into early adulthood in a library, that corruption would likely be very present in the surrounding area. Please incorporate this into your backstory.

  • This one requires no actual changes to your app, but, as a result of having lost your wings and tail your character will occasionally feel short, relatively minor bursts of phantom pain/itchiness in those areas, akin to as if they lost a limb. 

 

The following changes must be made within the next 48 hours. If you fail to make these changes, your application will be denied. If you have any questions or need any assistance, you may contact me at the following locations; Discord: MagicTurtle#9888, Forums: blackhand7

Ohkie dohkie, I can change this. (Had not stated this up front but both of her wings and tail were removed for the sake of masking herself as a Rehk.)

It's in there, but it's really only hinted at I guess, do you want me to change it still?
