This is taken, from a character creation i made for an old RP i applied. Unfortunately, he was denied but i put a lot of effort on creating him, although he looks likes Drizzt Do Urden. I would love to see him alive and playing, so if any of you guys like the idea of my character, please let me know if i can join somewhere. I also have a sample play, so can guys see, how actually the character acts and my roleplay.
Name: Shaggrath "Umbra" Vyronren
Age: 720 (appears as 26 in human age)
Species: Dark Elf
Appearance: Umbra stands at 6 feet tall and weights about 154 pounds, he has a strong and agile body, unlike other dark elves, which are thinner and weaker, Umbra's body is well shaped with sculped muscles and formed abs. He has pitch black skin, long white hair in dreadlocks that reach just a palm above his bottom. His white eyes are narrowed and show no expressions or feelings while he never blinks them. On his back there are whippings and wounds carved all over and on his genitalia there are razor cuts along its length and testicles. Always dressed in a tight black leather bodysuit which has five horizontal leather straps with silver rings to use as holders. His boots are the of the same type and reach at his knees. Ussually he covers his face with a hooded dark laventer cloak, that looks like almost black. On his back, forming an X there are two curve-bladed short sworts, sheathed with the hilt downwards.
Special training/Abilities: Umbra is blind for the most part of his life, thus made him an expert swordsman in blind-fighting. Over the years, his sences got heightned, to the point of no needing any eyes. Having his senses maxed, he formed a new sense to replace his sight, a sense that compines the remaining four. When facing somewhere, Umbra can detect auras on objects and living beings, which can help him understand his surroundings. These auras, work as a normal vision to him and they are good as the vision of an ordinary person. However this "shight" has a major drawback, if bright light hits his eyes he will loose this "sight" and his eyes will start bleeding like they were burned.
Swordsmanship/fighting skills: Umbra is an excelent swordfighter and advent in two weapon fighting. Trained for about 150 years on the dark elven swordsmanship, his technique is a mixture of a deliquent dance with disarming pierching attacks with a tiny bit of brutal hits. He has developed a a defensive stance which is baseed on his lightning reflexes, that came with his extreme senses.
Shadow-step: (see equipment)
Dark Elf abilities: Dark Elves possess a variety of spell-like abilities, which are in every Dark elf of any class or position and can be cast instantly under any circumstance. Theses abilities are:
Faerie Fire: A pale glow surrounds and outlines the subjects. Outlined subjects shed light as candles. Outlined creatures do not benefit from the concealment normally provided by darkness, blur, displacement, invisibility, or similar effects. The light is too dim to have any special effect on undead or dark-dwelling creatures vulnerable to light. The faerie fire can be blue, green, or violet, according to your choice at the time of casting. The faerie fire does not cause any harm to the objects or creatures thus outlined. (5/day)
Darkness 15': This spell causes total, impenetrable darkness in the area of effect. Neither normal nor magical light works unless a light or continual light spell is used. In the former event, the darkness spell is negated by the light spell, and vice versa.
Levitation: Levitate allows the caster to move self, another creature, or an object up and down as he wish. A creature must be willing to be levitated, and an object must be unattended or possessed by a willing creature. He can mentally direct the recipient to move up or down as much as 20 feet each minute. He cannot move the recipient horizontally, but the recipient could clamber along the face of a cliff, for example, or push against a ceiling to move laterally (generally at half its base land speed).
Equipment/Gear: Umbra wields two enchanted short swords, Shadowfang and Night's Bane, white got them through his adventures and popularity. Shadowfang's blade has a purple hue with black veins carved all all over. The hilt has two black jewels and the metal forms two fangs over the hand. It is a cursed blade that damages the wielder upon attacks to deliver twice the damage on the target, normaly the sword would do. Night's Bane is a masterpiece sword, crafted by the best blacksmith in the dark elven society, ordered by the Mother Matron of Dark Elves, when Umbra still had his sight and considered the best fighter and duelist amongst all dark elves. Its keen edge can slice through a stone and can pierce through a dragon's scales. The ebony hilt as carved figures of two duelists, joining the swords in a duel. His laventer cloak offers him the ability of shadowstep, which means he can step into a medium sized shadow and phase from another. He cannot stay for long though into the shadows, in case he gets lost in the shadows. The shadow that works as exit must be known to him and same as the entrance, the exit must be a meduim sized shadow.(unlimited use)
Background: Borned in a matriarchic society, Umbra was raised to believe that males were the lowest subjects amongst beings. Raised by his sisters, which possesed a high position in the society he learned how to fight and use his racial abilities. Reaching 60 years old he entered the Warrior school and there learned how to use two weapons, since he was already ambidextrous. From the beggining of his training he showed, what an incredible fighter he was about to become, leading his class in fighting duels and lessons, his trainers desided to skip him one year and put him with older students. On his graduation, he was already known for his fighting skills and his ability to think before his enemy, as well his tracking skills. Serving his Matron as bodyguard and loyal servant, to protect her from her enemies and he did well, preventing hundreds of assasins that tried to murder his mother. A night though he failed to stop a mage that attempt to kill the Matron with a spell, reaching him only when the spell hit directly to his mother, having her dead and him whipped to the ground and his eyes burned from his five sisters combined ritual. Exiled from the society he grew a continuously hate for his family but not for his kind, which he would love to live amongst a day. Blind and alone, he learned how to survive and make his blindness feel like something it wasn't there at all. Learning every rock and corner around his new home in the exile his senses heightened and he could see clearly as any other person. Reaching the surface, he became a mersenary assasin and bounty hunter, in order to survive and create an enemy amongst the world. Now, having a vast number of assasinations on his back, he still tries to find the way to slaughter his own family.
Sample play: Umbra stood at a window looking inside the mansion at the 5 guards that stood inside. Two guards were scanning at the hall, while other two were patrolling down the way towards the door,the last one was right under the window Umbra was.He smiled as the auras of the guards were glowing a thin red shine, thin red aura meant that they were calm but cautious.
He stepped into the shadow next to him and appeared inside the window in the mansion, with his swords drawn and held behind his arms. He kneeled and examined the guards again, calculating his next moves. Umbra jumped on the guard and kicked him down on the floor. He leaned over him and smashed the head of the guard with the hilts of his swords. A gasp was the only thing that was heard from the guard as he died.
He held his swords better in his hands and making a demonstration of his swordsman abilities took an offensive stance towards the guards that turned to face him. They turned their spears at him and attacked, piercing through the air to find his chest and neck. He dodged every spear and with a tumble he got between the two guards that stood there, still holing their spears like statues. In seconds Umbra had their bodies laying headless on his feet. "Three down, two to go" he said and lost in the shadows around him.
He appeard behind one of them and threw Shadowfang at the guard that was standing some feet away. The sword didnt hit the guard but it made him to look away since it passed right next to his head forcing him to dodge the sword.Making a deliquent pirouette, Umbra turned taking the head of the guard behind him, before stepping in the shadow realm once again.
Umbra phased again leaving the last standing guard alone in the middle of the room, recovering from the dodge.He scanned the place in front of him finding only the remains of his fellow guards. Having a guarding position he searched again and again but Umbra was nowhere could be found.
Silently Umbra stood up behind the guard smirking, his pure white eyes giving him a devilish look of hate mixed with pleasure of killing.
"En Garde my friend." He whispered and grabbed the guard's head while piercing his torso from behind with Night'sBane. He left the guard fall on the ground in front of his feet pulling his sword out.
"Now, on with the show!!" he said and swiftly disappeared.
