I've tried to gloss over this post, but it keeps bringing me back... Throwing my name in the hat.
"Prince" Zephyr Erki̇n the Blind Monkey
Half-Elf Oracle/Snake-bite Striker Brawler
CN Heterosexual Male (although it is not uncommon for him to do gay-ish things if he knows it will annoy somebody)Backstory:
Born of a noble in the pirate-run city of Sharazad, "Prince" Zephyr Erki̇n was born to into a mercantile family tradition. His father was an explorer and appraiser, his mother a former dancer. Being the youngest of 3 children, he was the most carefree, forsaking his studies to learn many an art, both fine and arcane from his mother. As was tradition in his household, starting at age 10 he was forced to learn a fighting style, preparing for various invasions and plundering. He chose a dervish style, incorporating the disciplines of the monks that taught him his books and the free-flow movements of his mother. Unfortunately he lost a significant portion of his sight during one such encounter, as the rather lawless city somehow was viewed as viable during the attack on King Arlan's empire.
However, with his newfound blindness and injury came a power to 'see' nature and magic with a new comprehension. His lack of sight gave him access to a divine presence, of which he used his studies to control and attune. This sparked a thirst for knowledge within him, wanting to find out more about this mystical force that sewed the planes both together and apart. Less of the family's responsibility was placed on his since then, and just as well, he wasn't one for doing too much work... At age 19, while he was supposed to hop onto a fishing vessel to aid with the shipping, he (literally) stumbled onto the wrong ship, a pirate vessel. As the pirates found him aboard, a few attempted to attack him. He beat the small lot, jesting and prodding as he deftly dodged their attacks. He was allowed to stay on the ship, and he worked (to a degree, he's kinda lazy) and kept in good spirits. He decided not to return home and has since been traveling the world on various vessels, searching for more arcane lore and trinkets of power.Personality:
A tad lazy and a lot aloof, Zephyr is rather optimistic and wisecracking, living each day as if it is his last, with an attempt to keep everyone in his presence in a good mood as well. He is placed on odd jobs often, helping with navigation, or invisegating spirits and curses. He would mainly be on call in the kitchen to serve and heal or as a runner delivering things around the ship, which can lead to interesting results as he is partially blind. In combat, it is not uncommon for him to play a front role, although he may use non-lethal attacks in addition. He carries some belongings from his past, and while he wouldn't admit it, he is a little homesick but enjoys the freedom. Not one with too many motives except to troll and to screw, this fun-loving half-elf seeks thrills throwing caution out of the window.About Me?:
What I hope to gain from this adventure is a fun diverse pbp tabletop experience. Nobody really plays around my way, and I have been trying to get into pathfinder for a while as I like the modular nature. I have 5E and AGE experience, so I know the basics. I will
come up with a pic once I find one I like,
then describe it.
