Male What your character looks like:
Rakshasas stand 6 to 7 feet tall and weigh between 250 and 300 pounds. Their natural shapes are relatively humanoid although they are clearly not human, as they appear more as humanoid beasts, usually tigers. Their hands also look disturbing to most humans, as their palms are where the back of the hands would be in humans. The Rakshasa are capable of hiding their disturbing appearance at any time, as they can choose any humanoid form at will. All rakshasas wear human clothing of the highest quality.
Your Weapons: He uses a scimitar, a long curved blade, and has a couple of daggers secreted in his boots. Also possesses a crossbow, though he's not as skilled with it as the scimitar.
Your Bio: Rajiv is a skilled mage, along with further developing his shifting capabilities to include human-scale monstrous forms, like hobgoblins and orcs, along with the less encountered forms such as drow and other intelligent beings, and also normal animals, such as wolves, big cats, bears, and others. His mage abilities are general in nature, though he tends towards the enchantment spells, using them to ensorcell opponents minds. Speaking of minds, he can read them, a bit, and communicate with others mentally, a bit.
He's a hedonist at heart, enjoying pleasures of many sorts, and he's not as thoroughly evil as others of his kind. He is known for bad puns, and odd humor, but he's also faithful to friends. With regards to his sexual orientation, he's strictly hetero, interested in females, though females of all sorts.
His past is a bit hazy. He's mentioned that he once fell in love, though not with whom. And that he lost his love when she died at the hands of his father, for which he has vowed never to return to his home plane again. Instead, he wanders the planes, adventuring, seeking enjoyment, making friends--much as any other being.
His fuzziness is renown. When he smiles, it's either "fuzzily" with his mouth closed, or "toothily" with his mouth open. The first is reserved for humor. Few have seen the second kind...
He signed on with the ship recently, but seems to be a good and faithful ship's mage, though he seems willing to spare lives of the victims more often than not. "It's just good business--people won't fight out of fear, like they will if we are known for killing all our captives!"
