Okay! I'll think of something else, then ^^; I guess you could say that idea...fell to pieces. *rimshot*
Here we go; I think this'll do it!Name:
Human, with Siren somewhere in there.Sex:
Offensive BardMode of Attack:
Screaming very, very loudlyOne Thing In My Pack:
A metronome to help keep the tune of his heartDescription:
He's never the largest person in the party, nor the biggest. In fact, among adventurers and "main characters", if you will, he's often the easiest to pass by. Average black hair, an average body shape, and an average facial structure often make people write him off as the NPC-type, which he's often not loud enough to correct. His only standout feature is a pair of glasses that tend to not fit on his face very well at all.Personality:
Shy to a fault, but extremely determined. Patrick's never really learned how to interact well with others, and often times he's either too quiet or too loud. Desperately eager to please, he misinterprets things based on what comes first and ends up missing out on what truly matters.Likes:
Helping others with their adventures, singing, fighting, pretty trinkets, tavern parties, quest rewards, small adventuresDislikes:
When evil wins, being bullied/seeing bullies, seeing two people on the same side fight, Story:
Raised alone by an eccentric musician living in the forest, Patrick had an odd childhood that centered around him being the musician's slave and student at the same time. Unfortunately, he never took to music as quickly or as soon as his master would have liked, and was often instead relegated to simple errands, such as polishing the piano, tuning the violin, and recopying sheets of music. A few of his errands took him into town, where he often saw and admired the adventurers that passed by. The occupation of bard, especially, seemed to sing to him.
And so he practiced and trained. Not sure of how adventuring actually worked, he focused on trying to use his surprisingly loud voice in an offensive capability. His crude, self-developed method of attack is basically screaming very loudly in a targeted fashion to disorient opponents. The damage he does is minimal, and the supporting effect is not as appreciated as what real bards do, but he doesn't know that yet.
He doesn't want to work with the musician anymore. The musician doesn't actually seem to care, except to tell Patrick what chores to run when he does return "home". He stays away, now, only going back to nab a few coins or run a few errands out of appreciation or convenience; he prefers to sleep on the streets rather than sleep at home. It feels much more adventure-y and real that way! He's still finding his place in life, and hopefully, his place in a story, but he's driven and he wants to go places.
Also, despite his occupation and upbringing, Patrick's singing can be rated on the bad side of average. He often trades volume for tune, singing louder and louder as he grows less and less confident if he's actually singing correctly. The metronome gives him confidence, though, and something to follow!
