Part 1: The Basics
What is your full name?
"Avrae Aodhan Kyric."
Where and when were you born?
"The heart of hell itself, Sirothelle. Where else would someone so unlucky be born? As for when… Well, I wasn’t exactly aware of the event at the time, but I’ve been told my birthdate is the 12th of Vhalar, of Arc 691."
Who are/were your parents? (Know their names, occupations, personalities, etc.)
"Well, I didn’t exactly know them. But I’ve been told about them, and I’ve seen paintings of them. My mother was named Eeyrinthia Fletcher. I know that she dabbled in the magical arts, particularly that of healing, and my grandfather, her father, was a physician. She was… beautiful, by an Aukari woman’s standards, I suppose. I’ve been told that she was adventurous, and very passionate about life. I personally think she was just a slut who couldn’t shut her legs. But what would I know? As for my father… Well, his name was Aukyre Kyric, and he was a mercenary. Many described him as foolhardy and hotheaded. How they ever fit together as a couple, I have no idea."
Do you have any siblings? What are/were they like?
"I have… I had a sister. Her name was Lecia. She was… perfect. That’s all I have to say about that."
Where do you live now, and with whom? Describe the place and the person/people.
"I live in Ne’haer. Specifically, I reside at the local inn. It isn’t much, but I’m slowly saving money for a house. A nice big one would be nice… maybe with a few acres. I could have a bee farm or something… But right now I reside in a small room. I stay there with my friend Ailluin. She’s a Tunawa, doesn’t take up much room."
What is your occupation?
"I'm a mercenary. I take work where I can get it. Anywhere from simple tasks and manual labor, to murdering people. It's not the best job, but it pays, and I can do it."
Write a full physical description of yourself. You might want to consider factors such as: height, weight, race, hair and eye color, style of dress, and any tattoos, scars, or distinguishing marks.
"Red hair. Tall. I've been told my eyes are a shade of amber. I wear a leather jacket a lot, I suppose. As for tattoos, well... There's my Becoming tattoo, which is on my right arm from my wrist to my elbow. It looks like flames, starting in red, ending in blue- basically, getting hotter. I have a couple other tattoos I want to get but haven't, and luckily I haven't gotten any scars. Any more of a description, well... you'll need to use your own damn eyes."
To which social class do you belong?
"The bottom one. Well, maybe not rock bottom. I’m not a criminal or something like that. But I’m not famous or wealthy so I suppose there’s that."
Do you have any allergies, diseases, or other physical weaknesses?
"I don’t usually divulge my weaknesses… but I will admit that I’m allergic to cats, but I’ve always wanted one. Which only makes my Becoming form all the more strange… Though I suppose I can’t be allergic to myself when not in my usual form. It’s a conundrum I haven’t gotten yet. But I only itch when I’m around cats, with the occasional sneeze, so I can handle it. As for diseases… Can you count being damned to burst into flames by the age of fifty arcs as a disease?"
Are you right- or left-handed?
“Right handed. However, I can use both hands fairly well.”
What does your voice sound like?
”...Like a voice. I mean, it’s not bad, I suppose, but they say other people hear you differently than you hear yourself.”
Sample: (This singer is how I imagine Avrae's voice to sound)
What words and/or phrases do you use very frequently?
"How the fark would I know? It’s not like I listen to myself. Ask Ailluin if you want the answer to such a question, she’d have more information than I. But I suppose, since she's not around... I use typical Aukari phrases a lot. Calling idiots Ash heads, cursing Faldrun's fiery balls. That type of thing."
What do you have in your pockets?
"I usually keep most of my items in the bag I carry on me. I might keep extra throwing daggers in my pockets if I have them, but otherwise… not much goes in my pockets. I wouldn’t worry about trying the pickpocket me. The most you’d get is a tiny Tunawa that likes to nest in my top right jacket pocket- and she bites."
Do you have any quirks, strange mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics?
”So, I asked Ailluin, since you insist on asking me things I myself can’t answer. She told me that I… tend to talk in my sleep. Particularly when I’m having a good dream, that’s when I get most vocal. When I have bad dreams, she says I’m silent but I toss and turn a lot. When awake, I also tend to run my hand through my hair, like a nervous tick. And I’ve been told that I clench my teeth a lot when I’m around large bodies of water, like the sea.”
