A relaxed and kind soul, Leasick takes life as it comes. He's always willing to lend a helping hand, but tends to just go with the flow of things when there is nothing that require his direct attention. This means he never (intentionally) gets himself into trouble and generally well liked by others. Despite his relaxed personality Leasick can be a hard worker when given the proper motivation and very wrathful if crossed
though the latter would take quite something to achieve.Biography:
Far, far up in the north, at the very edge of civilization, where land meets the frozen wastes of the north pole, lies a small village by the name of Breanthal. It is here that Leasick was born and raised. The town consisted of only a handfull of families, so everyone knew each other and worked together to survive in this harsh environment. Most of the men were fishermen or huntsman, responsible for the food supply. As such, young Leasick learned early on the ways of both the cold sea and the frozen lands surrounding his home. While life was so far up north was anything but easy, it wasn't hard to see the warmth such a tightly knit community held, and it shaped Leasick into a kind and compassionate soul that would walk miles through the frozen wastes if a friend asked it of him.
About a month after his eighteenth birthday Leasick and his father went out into the frozen forests to check if their traps had caught any small game
like snowrabbits. What started out as a calm day with clear sky soon turned into a raging blizzard. Fighting their way through an almost blinding snowstorm, the pair was caught by surprise when an avalanche was triggered atop the mountain the forest lay at the feet of. A massive wall of snow raced towards the two, predicting certain doom. Fate, however, seemed to have different plans.
With no clue what he was doing, as if his body was moving on its own, young Leasick stepped foreward, in front of his equally terrified father. Setting one foot in front of the other, taking on a sturdy stance, he stretched both his balled fists foreward, as if punching someone. Father and son were equally surprised when the seemingly unstoppable stream of snow, which came pouring down the mountainside, actually halted dead in its tracks. The snow that came after it piled up on top, but surely enough, the snow had magically stopped short just mere feet from them.
The pair just stood there in shock and awe until the blizzard had subsided, departing as swiftly as it came. When the sky grew clear once more they could clearly see the extend of the miracle which had befallen them. All along the mountainside a tall wall of snow had formed, never coming further down then were they stood.
When they returned to the village many questions were asked, as the wall was easily seen even from there. Leasick's father had chosen to remain quiet about what seemed to be his only son's miracle powers and had told said son to do so as well, for everyone's sake. In the end it was written off as an act of the gods and life continued on.
In the weeks after that Leasick would, every now and then, sneak off to a secluded part of the beach near the village. He found he couldn't reproduce the control he had on the snow during that fateful day in any way. Not even the smallest snowflake could be moved by him, but he did find that he could control water a little. Taking a bucket of seawater, he found that, if he focused hard enough, he could make the water ripple a little. While it wasn't much, it proved to him that it was indeed his hands that stopped the avalanche. Fascinated by his newfound ability, weak as it might be, Leasick secretly spends what little time he can dedicate to it practicing his ability, trying to make larger ripples in the bucket.Appearance: #1
~ Living so far up north, Leasick usually wears an assortment of clothing
made of thick animal skins and furs, protecting him the deathly winter weather that rules the lands surrounding his home for most of the year. Seeing as the village is too small for shops and too remote for traders coming from elsewhere, so all clothing is custommade by the women in the village
the wives and the mothers. Leasick's most distinguished feature are his icy blue eyes; a trait most members of his father's side of the family share. Combat Information:Weapon(s):
- Hunter's Knife
Leasick knows his way around a knife after years of gutting and cleaning fish and small animals to help out in the village after the fishermen and hunters returned with their caught game. This particular type of knife is most commonly used by the hunters and fisherman of the village. With its handle included, the knife is almost as long as a grown man's forearm, making it resemble a dagger or short sword more than a knife, when you think about it. The reason for its size is so that it can easily penetrate and cut through thick hide or blubber.
- Water Magic
Leasick wields the power of water. Still untrained and unfamiliar with its might and capabilities, he can do little more than create ripples insides a bucket of water at the moment.
- Hunter, Gatherer and Fisherman
From an early age on he was taught these vital food gathering skills, so that he too can survive in the harsh winterlands of the north and help out the village as a whole in their ongoing struggle to survive in these lands.
- Survival Expert
Not only does he know how to hunt and gather food, Leasick also knows how to survive in the (wintery) wilds. Things like building shelter and getting a fire started are all part of his skillset.
The waters in the north are cold and its weather deadly. Despite that though, every hand able to help is one worth having, even if it belongs to a man barely at the doorstep of adulthood. Going out with the other fishermen of village on a regular basis, Leasick has learned how to sail a ship. While still only a greenhorn when compared to the older fishermen, he is perfectly capable to handle a ship under normal conditions.
Leasick's strong points are that he is calm, kind and collected. He is good friend to have and would fit well in groups, especially if that group needs that one person that's always there no matter what and can be counted on. Due to his upbringings, he is well equipped with extensive knowledge when it concerns surviving in harsh winter lands and catching or finding your own food.Weaknesses:
Leasick is not a leader. He can do his best to try and keep the members of a group together and on the right path, but he is not the one who can determine what the right path for the group is. Sexual Information:Sexual Nature:
