Erastil's Arrow, Cleric of Erastil
Level 1 Human ClericBackground:
Born and raised in Rostland, he was quickly introduced into the ways of the bow. Cradled amongst the plains and the thick forests, most of the inhabitants of his hometown either plowed fields or hunted--he fell into the latter category. The sounds, sights, smells, and creatures of the forest became second nature to him, another home. Home became more than just a building to return to at the end of the day, it was the people of the town, it was sharing a hot meal with family, it was working under the hot sun to make way for the next crops. Home was the people as much as the place, something he grew to value a great deal as he grew older.
He earned his kupenia
when he reached adulthood and went on his first hunt alone. He keeps it with him still and hunts with it, proud of his heritage, his home, and his country (despite it's difficulties). It even served to save his life one day when he was out on a bad hunt. Surviving a run in with an angry boar he ended up wounded with a large laceration on his right leg and a minor fracture. Doing what he could to tend the wounds himself he attempted to make his way out of the forest and back home, though the pain from the injury and the loss of blood eventually overcame him as he slowly faded out of consciousness, sending out a prayer to whatever god may be listening. He was found by another hunter, a cleric of Erastil, who stabilized his injuries and carried him to safety.
When Mikhail had recovered enough he began to spend more time with his rescuer who was now staying briefly in his town at the behest and generosity of Mikhail's parents. He often asked the cleric questions, eager to learn about his savior and curious about how he was so lucky to be found. It wasn't long before the inquisitive youngster became student and the cleric became mentor.
When it came time for his mentor to leave his parents already knew that Mikhail would likely leave with him, eager to explore the world and learn more. The small temple became home soon enough, and as the years passed his connection to his god Erastil grew stronger.
Now that the world around him seems as if it may tear itself apart he feels duty-bound to venture out and attempt to heal the wounds in the larger community of Brevoy.Personality:
Attentive and patient, Mikhail tends to listen until he feels it appropriate to give his advice, or when asked. A keen eye and ear to watch and listen before making judgments. He prefers simplicity, be it in clothing, doings, or living. Being raised in the forests and working for his meals has made him appreciate the value of things more than some others in the cities may. Despite the unnecessary "complexity" of the city, he views it as another part of nature. Just as certain natural environments attract certain inhabitants, the sentient races build their own environments and create their own natural laws.
Friendly and caring he will help to support any group he comes into contact with, even if he will only be with them for a short time. Rarely very serious, he has a jovial attitude most times, if only to help others keep hopeful. Despite this he isn't afraid to confront someone who he thinks is doing something wrong.Appearance:
A mix of Varisian and Taldan blood, Mikhail seems to have retained some of the more exotic features of the Varisians. His skin is only faintly darker than the rest of the inhabitants of his hometown. His most notable Varisian trait is his deep, amethyst eyes which seem to have distinct facets radiating from the pupil. Looking into them gives the sense that one is looking into his soul. He is of average build and maintains a youthful appearance, if only because he keeps his face clean shaven. His hair is a stark black color which he keeps short for practical purposes. He may appear to be nothing out of the ordinary, but his otherworldly wisdom sets him apart from the other residents of Brevoy.Sexual Content:
From Light to Extreme, I'm good with just about anything. As far as frequency, on a scale from 0 to 10 where 10 is sex in every other post I'm probably around 7-8 at the most.
