I would use my fav characters, but they are already involved in another RP, and it really messes up a person's mind to have the same characters doing different thinkgs at the same time. lol. I'll dig up some of my past characters adn pick one that suits me. I'll get back to you later.

Name: Sévi Kallasilyatinwe<BR><BR>Age: 14 years old by human standards<BR><BR>Gender: Female<BR><BR>Race: Elf<BR><BR>Hair: Dirty blond, cut short<BR><BR>Eyes: Green, but she is blind so they have an opaque film over them<BR><BR>Skin tone: light tan<BR><BR>Siblings: Has a brother, Terri, but he will probably not be in this RP.<BR><BR>Appearance: Her attire is that of an elvish boy. She wears long brown trousers, high worn brown boots, a dark green tunic, leather jerkin, and gray elvish cloak. She has a bow, but since she is blind she actually only has it for looks most of the time. He weapons of choice are two long fine elvish daggers, with pearl handles and set with sapphires in the hilt. She never carries much money with her, as it attracts thieves. She carries a long staff made from the wood of a tree from the golden wood. She uses it to find her way on her travels, and as another means of protection.<BR><BR>Other: Her remaining four senses are almost three times as sensitive as the normal elf’s. She has trained her mind and body so that she is a very formidable foe. It also gives her the upper hand when in dark places, because her opponent is handicapped by the darkness, when she is not.<BR><BR><BR>-------------------<BR><BR>This is the bio of one of my past characters, but I have modified it slightly. So, can I join, and when will th main thread be open, if it already isn't?

Hey this sounds interesting. Can I join??? Here's my character...<BR><BR>Name: Maranwiel<BR>Gender: female<BR>Age: unknown, looks 21 <BR>Race: Elf<BR>Height: 5'7" <BR>Marital Status: single<BR>Skills: medicine, gardening, and any kind of fighting (best at sword)<BR>Horse: Maranwiel has a black horse named Melda.<BR>Appearance: fair complexion with soft, strait golden hair reaching to her waist. She is very lovely and many men have fallen for her outstanding beauty. She carries herself reagaly as if she were a princess (or maybe she was one!). Her eyes are a pale blue that glisten in the moonlight. Don't let her appearence fool you, as it has fooled many unfortunate enemies, she's sharp with the bow and arrow, not bad with a sword and daggar, and she is tough and can survive almost any weather.<BR>Personaliey: Maranwiel is usually a quiet reserved elf, although she can be quite outgoingwhen she wants to. She can be mysterious at times, especially when her dark green cloak is on with the hood up. She is very nice, and loves to cheer people up.<BR>Weakness: her only fear that she shows is the death of a loved one, which sometimes can keep her away from adventures. and if a loved one does die, she goes into a state of total despair for a while.<BR>History: Maranwiel was born in Rohon and secretly trained in the art of the sword, daggar, and bow. Her mother died when she was 15 and her father (being so distrought) ignored her unintentionally. Maranwiel decided to run away and seek adventures. Her horse has been a very good friend when she was lonly and she has learned how to survive in the wild very well.<BR><BR>Hope she will fit in with this journey and i hope swordsman comes back. This sounds like it will be great.<BR>~Lindaranel

Hey - can I join you? I doesn't lok as if the IC thread is up yet, so I'll keep an eye out <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>.<BR><BR>Name: Raewan Hadlin<BR><BR>Race: Elven, but a self-proclaimed outcast<BR><BR>Age: Tends not to count her age - but is actually approaching her 2,000th year.<BR><BR>Occupation: Nomad, wanderer - when in the cities promotes herself a a mercenary or a hired blade<BR><BR>Appearance: 5'9" tall, slender. Long, raven-black hair in loose ringlets (though she normally ties it out of the way). Grey eyes, fair-skinned. Has often been remarked on as pretty - even beautiful, though everyone with Elven heritage is classed thus -, but is never particularly interested.<BR><BR>Marital status: single<BR><BR>Siblings: Has a brother named Talryen, who lives in Imladris. Probably won't be in this RP.<BR><BR>Skills: Is very quick with knives and throwing blades, and consequently prefers them and stabbing blades compared to long/broadswords. Her aim is very good, and she knows much about the in-city underworld, as well as their somewhat underhand methods.<BR><BR>Weapons: A belt of throwing blades, two shortswords strapped to her back. Also has a knife with a retractable blade strapped to her left calf, and a bootblade/lock pick in the heel of her right boot.<BR><BR>Clothes: Dark brown/black trousers, black knee-high riding boots, a long-sleeved dark red shirt and a shorter-sleeved black fitted tunic.<BR><BR>Bio: She was forced to make the choice between staying with her brother or travelling - she chose the latter, and her brother, to whom she had been very close, chose that of remaining in Imladris and serving in the forces. They went their seperate ways from then on, and Raewan has never taken up his offers of getting in contact. Her parents died soon after that, both in combat. She has wandered since then, preferring not to be tied down rather than settling and taking a husband. Currently, she resides in the Gondor underworld.<BR><BR>Personality: Is quite bitter at her brother's insistance to join the forces - she saw her parents die where her brother did not, and is more aware of the pain and the fear than he is. She regards him as being naive, and resents his stubbornness.<BR><BR>She always rebukes men, Elven and otherwise, who take an interest in her (of whom there have been few in the past decades) - but is secretly longing for a friend, at least. She has neither, and is known among the human thieves and murderers in the backstreets as being cold, efficient, and ruthless in her work. <BR><BR>I'll keep checking back to see when the RP's up and running!<BR><BR> <BR><BR><BR>
