OK! So. I'm rebooting an old character of mine with a new name, new occupation, things that are more appropriate to the personality he's being written with.
The short: He's named Cassiel, and he has a young Nick Cave as a playby (this guy
. . .voice is also important!
). He's from a world that mixes technology and magic, because it has two races of humans--zal'Berei, who can use magic naturally, and zal'Kerei, who can't. Its advancements are mostly in the medical field, otherwise it's not too hugely different from Earth, other than cultural differences. He made his living as a poet. He's very sweet-tempered--slow to anger, quick to understand, cautious at times but ultimately rather trusting. Really, he's pretty innocent. Not sheltered, just good-natured.
His concept is that he's a poet, who's also a natural realm traveler. Basically, his people, the zal'Berei, go on a journey some time after puberty. One day they're doing whatever, then they feel a little funny and POOF!, they appear in a different world. It's considered a spiritual journey to experience that world, and learn the magic necessary to return home. Most zal'Berei don't remain on their home planet, because it's very small--around the size of your average European country, I imagine--and, well, they've got the entire universe out there for them! Cassiel still tends to appear places without intending to, though. He has a portable hole/portable dimension/whatever you call it that he takes around. It's the size of a walk-in closet and contains, honestly, whatever I think it should--but mostly clothing and reference materials that can be laughably inaccurate.
Anywho, I tend to default him to medieval-fantasy type places because I spent years playing there, and I'm used to them. However, I'd welcome any setting, even Earth, with the right characters and stuff! I have a passing interest in him meeting an android. . .basically, I want to brainstorm ideas! Contact me however it suits you--respond to this topic, PM me on here, IM me, doesn't matter. Thanks for your consideration.
