Hello all! If there is room for another, I'll just drop this here.
Currently a WIP so please, don't get too into what you see thus far (I've talked with Gladiator about this a good deal and he so far has little issue with what I have in mind).
Weight: 210 LBs
Appearance: One would usually describe Halsnek as a tall young warrior and wouldn't be far off the mark with the exception of a far peculiarities. from a distance one would have difficulty telling their species, elf or human, too much flesh to be elf, too angular to be a human, so one would assume they was half elf and wouldn't be far off the mark. Closer in one would notice other differences and suddenly find themself thinking of an orc, or half orc to be closer, and again one wouldn't be far off the mark. Tall, thin yet brutish appearing, Halsnek has angular features, slightly pointed ears, green tinged skin, surprisingly good looking orcish teeth, even the sharp nose of an elf is more rugged and rounded. While 'thin' none who see them would mistake them for slim. In a work 'bulky' would fit Halsnek well enough though would not quite capture their image completely. Corded with muscle from both their racial heritage and a good third of a life time dedicated to training, Halsnek is a naturally strong, flexible young warrior.
Personality: Reserved, Observant, Paranoid and Adventurous.
Biography: Halsnek was born into a tough and rugged world surrounded by very simple and very deadly folk whom looked out for their own. By the time most children were making friends and learning wonderful things about the world, Halsnek was introduced to the way of life they would have as an adult. At the age of four their training and education in the craft of soldiering would begin and continue for much of their early life time, the hard, grueling training broken only by snatches of sleep and the odd campaign or quick job. they learned quickly how to survive in many situations and how to adapt and, most importantly of all, how to not only fight, but to kill. Training wasn't about just practicing over and over and over, though they did that, nor was it about overcoming tougher, stronger or even smarter opponents, though they did that, it was about killing them. To get anywhere in training the children usually had to have their first kill under their belt and Halsnek was no exception. At age twelve Halsnek would go on their first campaign, primarily to sit and watch, to learn how those in the company did things, how it all worked. Learn they did as they and the other children were often in or near the command areas, watching and seeing battles or skirmishes play out, how the commanders acted and reacted. By the time they were fifteen Halsnek had a fair if not great grasp of military procedure and practice and would see their first serious campaign, fighting in several skirmishes. After the campaign was over Halsnek would be given smaller jobs to perform, usually by themself or with a small group of others until they were seventeen, at which they would march on their third and fourth campaigns, both of the short, bloody and vicious. After the fourth campaign Halsnek had proven themself capable of the job and was given the rank of captain, their own men and sent on their way to find and fulfill more contracts.
