Lvl 1 Half-elf Male SlayerHP:
To a teacher of swordsmanship, fighting is all about the technique and balance, yet to anyone who has been in an actual duel knows it's more than just that. Fighting an enemy is more than just about technique. It's also about imposing your will upon them and making them believe that their battle is already lost, because this means fighting an enemy who has already accepted defeat. It's about taking even the smallest opportunities presented to you and exploiting them thoroughly.
Kyras considers himself a practical swordsman. Even if one's honour is intact if they lose, you don't influence others by failing. So Kyras makes it a point to win with all means he has at his disposal, short of sacrificing friends and ally's.
GM Notice: Can post on a daily basis (anywhere from 1-3 times), barring the occasional hiccup in RL. No special requirements for this character; I simply intend him to serve as striker and point-man to any group he's in, though I would like the occasional chance to develop his character in game.
Brief History: Experience:

Common, Elven, Skald, Varisian
Though born in a mostly human dominated nobility in Brevoy, Kyras was fortunate to have parents who accepted his dual nature despite prejudices. When he wanted to become one of the famed Aldori Swordlords, his dual heritage helped again, for though the people of Restov were generally antagonistic towards Issians in general, especially the dominant nobility, they were more willing to accept a boy who was more an embarrassment to the Surtova House.
Unfortunately, successful association with the Restovites was not pleasing to upper echelons of the Issianic Surtova House, but since Kyras' father hadn't disowned the child, as was standard practice for a half-breed, Kyras still stood as a legitimate Surtova. As an elegant, yet blatantly truculent solution, Kyras was given the 'honour' of representing his house's interest in distant Absalom. Kyras wasn't blind to all this, but went along with it, since it represented a sort of freedom in itself.
Once in Absalom, Kyras quickly decided that a future among the Pathfinder Society would be the lightest hand on lifestyle he wanted - to travel and see new places - taking no small pains to advertise his skills and unique style of aldori swordsmanship.Brief Personality Description:
Kyras is a generally easy-going individual who lives for the day and by his own terms. Whilst he would generally be described a pleasant sort, he has a strong penchant for glory-seeking that would see him take up unscrupulous opportunities if it would further his reputation without making dangerous enemies. In moments of indecision, he has been known to flip a coin and let fate decide for him. He also has a strong interest in all things elven since his only real contact with the elven part of his heritage was his mother, who had little to offer him of elven culture. He daydreams of one day acquiring enough skill and fame to travel to distant Kyonin where he can show his skills before Queen Telendia Edasseril herself...
Though he aligns himself with the Andoran faction, he doesn't hold particularly loyalty to their doctrine of democracy - in Kyras' freeing the oppressed makes him feel good and looks good on his resume, and slavers do tend to have ill-gotten spoils lying around, don't they? He might have easily aligned with the Cheliaxian faction for the wealth they have on offer and a chance to see the Paracountess, but he doesn't care much for all the rules, nor for devil-worship.Ons/Offs:
