WIP

Name:Valaria
Age:23
Gender:Female
Race:Tiefling
Class:Rogue

Appearance:Valaria stands around 5 foot 6, her crimson skin mostly hidden by her armor. Her silver hair falls in a braid about 2/3'rds of the way down her back, her sharp green eyes always searching.

General Personality/Traits:Valaria is adaptive, willing to work with others when necessary. She has an interesting sense of humor, and can be pleasant once you get to know her. When in a fight, though, she seems to be another person. Rough, crass, angry, Valaria is a whirling dervish.

Equipment:She is wearing an emerald green tunic, with a chain-mesh short sleeved shirt over that, with a leather corset on top of that. Leather bracers adorn her forearms, studded with metal rivets, leading up to soft leather gloves, with their fingers cut off from the second knuckle.
Her lower body is covered by leather pants and leather boots, all studded with metal rivets.

Adorning her back is an emerald green cowl, with a quiver and short bow criss-crossing. Around her hips is a belt with multiple small throwing daggers, and two dirks, one on each hip.

Brief History:Valaria is a sell-sword, always looking to make a few coins by the odd job. She is usually found in taverns, listening for information and occasionally a loose coin purse. She has been a sell-sword for the past 13 years, once she found out how useful she could be, either with her words or her dirks. No stranger to brawls, she openly looks for opportunities to practice her fighting, whether it be close combat, or ranged.

Valaria has honed her skills in archery, but she is far from perfect, but the feel of a bow in her hands feels right, though the dirks twirling in her hands feel just as good. Her hand work is far from the top, but it's damned good for her occupation.

WIP

Name: Baenshadr the Wicked
Age: 43
Gender: Male
Race: Drow
Class: Warlock

Appearance: Baenshadr is an average drow height of 6'1." His build is relatively slender, though it's sometimes hard to tell underneath the billowing robes he favors. His skin is an ashen gray color, his eyes a not-unusual blue. Though young by the standards of his people, his face shows signs of strain that look a bit like aging, particularly the constant dark circles and thin lines around his eyes, as though he spent hours squinting at something and very little time sleeping. The crisscrossing scars there don't really help the impression, and at any long distance, he'd appear to be just shy of middle age, though younger up close. He's missing the last two fingers of his left hand.

Personality: You'd think someone called "the Wicked" would have a heart black as pitch and generally care fairly little for his surroundings. It's hard to tell exactly what Baenshadr thinks of his surroundings, but at the very least it seems that the appellation was earned more for his looks and profession than anything else. Though he treats everyone coolly and without much notable concern, he is polite at least, and has never been seen behaving in a way that is wantonly cruel- at least not in broad daylight. Admittedly, nobody really knows what he's like, but warlocks don't have the cleanest of reputations generally.

Equipment: Hidden away in various pockets of his black robes are enchanted trinkets and small items. There's a poison detector, a navigational aid, and two small crystals enchanted with long-distance communication spells. As it turns, out, enchanting is one of his primary skills. Though he prefers to fight at a distance, he also carries a single-edged enchanted blade, the blunt end inscribed with fel runes that seem to glow a dull red most of the time. The blade itself is about three feet long, and slightly curved, the blunt side considerably thicker than the sharpened one, hinting at its functions: slashing and cleaving. His clothes are also enchanted by his own hand, to make him a more difficult, fuzzy target at a distance and to provide more armor in close quarters.

Brief History: He was apprenticed to his master at the age of seven, as is common for those in his line of work. Though the power granted by his arts is a worthwhile pursuit in its own right, communing with the damned and summoning entities from the depths of the abyss doesn't have many worldly applications if you have no desire to rule it, and Baenshadr does not. So, much like his master before him, he took up the enchanter's trade as a natural and much more lucrative complement to his other skills.

Since finishing his apprenticeship, he's spent many years hiring out as a mercenary as well, to supplement his income and grow his skills. He recently took and passed the examination for his Mastery, and hired on as an enchanter for the royal family and their allies.When he heard about the tournament, he decided to participate on a whim.
