I'm sorry for so many posts in a row...Not being able to edit sucks. I've decided against the Marric character since there seems to be enough chars that could pick a lock or disarm a trap already. This is my new character, let me know if something won't work...
Bio: Storm is the offspring of a weretiger and human woman. Due to his beastial appearance and nature he was abandoned and left for dead. As luck would have it Storm was found and adopted by a traveling Swordmage. Raise on the road Storm grew to be good natured and was a natural prankster to those he let close enough to be friends with.
Intially he had no ability for magic but his mentor took him to an ancient place where Storm made a pact with an unknown entity which unlocked the gift within. From then on he studied mastering his art growing to be experienced wielding both single blades and dual wielding. Storm also learned the basics of using a greatsword, but he considers them to be to slow for him.
When his master finally passed away Storm set out on his own to increase his perspective of the surrounding world and to finally calm the beast within. When he first meets people he is standoffish because he is unsure what others will think of him and for fear of losing control of his more bestial side.
Appearance: Storm is a human being with a catlike appearance that stand about 5'10". He has long hair that he keeps pulled back that is brown, but has an orange tint to it when in the light. His eyes look those of a cat, which allows him to see better in low light conditions then others.
His face has more of a wide flattish nose, large eyes and his ears are pointed. When in the heat of battle he can call upon his beastial nature to look more catlike but never fully shifting like his ancestors. He wears leather armor, but refuses to wear boots. Instead Storm wraps his feet in leather strips so that he can utilize his claws that extend from his toes to increase his mobility. Like wise he uses leather bracers so he can use the claws on his fingers as well.
Weapon wise he carries twin katana's. One remains on his back while the other remain on his hip. Whether he wields them both depends on the situation....
