Hm... maybe. I got 2 characters done for sure. A Aes Sedai and her warder. Infantress is working on a bard variant/gleewoman type character. I could work in a 4th character if it meshes with everyone else.

I don't want you to overextend yourself...if three players is your limit I understand.  Let me know, though, and I'll whip up a character.  ;)

I can do 4, plus there is always the very good chance that someone drops, so more the merrier.

Aurora was borne under the name 'Valia Toreska',  to a family of minor nobility and wealth, in the capitol city of Tear.  She lived within the inner circle of the city for most of her childhood.  She had an older brother, though, who became a town guard captain, and as she went to visit him in the city, she began to get closer to some of the poor.  She saw the imbalance of wealth in Tear and did a little research, finding out that the nobles were virtually stealing money from the lower classes...so slowly, she trained herself, with the help of some local pickpockets, in the art of thievery.  She's engaged in many operations with goals of liberating wealth from the nobles and distributing it to the poor. She left her family a few years ago, convinced she was doing the right thing, and changed her name to Aurora as a sign of her new begging.

She has a code of honor, in that she won't steal from the poor-- most of her 'big jobs' have been donated to the impoverished of Tear.  She sees herself as a sort of Robin Hood figure.  That said, she's not entirely selfless, and sometimes her greed gets the best of her...but by and large she tries to stay on the path of an honest thief.

During one heist, she was caught by an Aes Sedai named Naia Revan, whom decided, for one reason or another, not to turn in the young thief.  Instead, Aurora now follows Naia in her journeys.  Although Aurora sometimes criticizes Naia's methods, the two have a working relationship of sorts, and Aurora manages to get along with the other members of the party.

http://www.clydecaldwell.com/jpgs/large_images/battle_ajah.jpg

Birthday:   May 12th
History:   Daughter of a minor nobleman who grew to maturity in Altara, her parent’s denied her the opertunity to pursue studies at the White Tower.  She was checked yearly for signs that she might become a wilder and left in peace. 
Then, in her fifteenth year, Dalin, a boy she loved very much, accepted a challenge for her hand from Lord Morn and was horrifically shamed and maimed. 
Initially, Naia held to custom and excitedly embraced an evening of pleasure with her beloved’s conqueror, but within a few days she was vastly disgusted with Morn, but nor could she bring herself to ask the weakling who could not keep her back into her arms. 
She spurned Morn, but within a week of finding love again, he was back, challenging for her hand once more, and again her suitor wasn’t fit to the task. 
This time, she held to her honor and returned to Morn’s arms out of pride alone, spurning him as soon as honor allowed. 
It was clear that he would never leave her in peace.  She begged her parents for help and they saw fit too send her to Tar Valon for sanctuary.  Rather than simply hide out as a refugee, she quickly enrolled herself in the book of Novice’s and—by Aes Sedai standards—skyrocketed through the ranks in a mere thirty years.

Well you seem eager to begin, though your history is important. Which country you come from, off from the borderlands, is rather important. In either case, borderlanders have plenty of respect for Aes Sedai.

He is from Arafel, principally Shol Aribel.  I want him to have been exiled for insubordination.  That's the gist.  :/

All right, brief history:

Perhaps it is difficult for the important citizens of other nations to realize this, but the aristocratic social circles of martial Arafel are, and have always been, ruled by subtlety and intrigue.  This does not differ from nations that hold court, but it is a striking detail important to the brief history of a young aristocratic outcast.  For Demosthenes Fredrickson, a highly decorated hussar in the Arafel calvary, had never been subtle or liable to suffer intrigue.  Had he been a yeoman, this could have been excused.  But this young soldier was the illegitemate son of a wealthy count, and his favorite, too.  So when the Count expired, it was without surprise that the social circles learned of the Count's petition to the King to permit Demosthenes to inherit.

Intrigues were afoot.  His family, having reviled him since infancy, were now forced to make entreaties to the new Count.  At first, they sought to marry their daughters, his cousins, off to him.  But these entreaties waned off when constant scandal surrounded the good-natured Count.  He drank too much.  He had very many liaisons.  He was fond of gambling.  He hated men who said one thing and meant another.  And he loved to fight.  Keeping the Count's company was like taming a wild animal.

It was concluded that the Count should be commended to a position in the front of the army.  Officials were bribed, opportunities created, and the Count was dispatched to the honorable position of spearheading a dangerous assault against the darkspawn.  But the Count was not vanquished.  He outlived four theaters of war.

A new scheme had to be conjured to injure the Count.  A nephew was recommended to the Count as an adjutant, but only sought to sabotage him.  During one heated battle, the young man was to take a message to another officer with express directions of moving his army forward to flank the darkspawn, but instead, the adjutant told the other officer to retreat.  This spelled disaster for the campaign, and only a handful of Arafel's men survived the battle.  Demosthenes was stripped of his rank and banished for his ineptitude after a military tribunal, influenced by coinage, allowed perjury and improper investigation to be permitted in their courts.

So now, Demosthenes travels the world, doing what he knows best.

Since phantom up and died on us, I still need another male for the party. Someone that could take a liking to dizzied's character, since the aes sedai and her warder are already quite close. I just feel bad about leaving her all alone!

You would have to go without a warder, unless dizzied wanted that connection for her own reasons. The only problem being that dizzied isn't into other girls, so there is that.

Ok, I don't really know the Wheel of time stuff. but I browse a wiki for it, if there is one, and have a character ready to go fairly quickly. I am also willing to play a male character, if no one had any objections to that. I kinda just need to know if there's any race/class restrictions, and if there's any beat stick positions still open.

I'm thinking I'll step up to the plate. The ranger variant we discussed will be fine. Though to be honest I feel completly spoiled by pathfinder's skill system after lookin g back at 3.5's. that and the bonus feats.

Have to ask dizzied if she is okay with you playing a male character or not. I do like to cover my bases and keep all of my players happy. We can talk in yahoo messenger for any good ideas for you.
