Character Name Race Background Class & Levels


Name: Taran 'Jo' Jost
Character Concept: Ethical Psychotic Mage
Race: Grey Elf

Description: I have been told that I have resting elf face. I understand this phrase to be a dwarven invention but in my case it seems apt. My expression is commonly haughty and disinterested. This changes when I grin, and it is a grin, crooked and fierce, and not a smile. I grin when I am fighting, for in truth I never feel more alive than when I am fighting for my life. I carry myself with straight back, dress well and appear as an academic sort when not fighting.

Personality: I keep myself apart from my own people and for good reason. The bloodlust that overcomes me is such that I live a life of danger, of combat. In civilised lands, with no outlet for my addiction, I would be a danger to others and so I travel to where conflict lies. Ashamed of what I am, I endeavor to fight on the right side, with the right people, thus transmuting my sin into virtue. When my addiction is sated, I am told I am genial and relaxed around people. My mind rebels at peace and indeed I hate the word. Peace is something I leave behind me, not looking back. Strangely, while I enjoy conflict, my body rebels when I have to resort to blade, it's simply too close for comfort, and my skill with a bow is not what it should be, I know not why.


Deity: I follow Deleb, the Oerdian God of Reason, Intellect and Study. I ask him for strength to keep my inner demons in check.

Origin: The Faerie Kingdom of Celene. She moves from place to place, attempting to never dwell in one place for too long so as to hide her affliction. The life of an adventurer is both her livelihood and her means of feeding her addiction.

Prologue: Began as a soldier in the Knights of Luna, fighting against Orcs. She was quietly recruited by a faction of the knights that dealt with 'special circumstances', providing full magic support. When this faction was uncovered, she was no longer welcome in the Knights of Luna, but since the scandal was covered up she lives in the grey, neither dismissed nor in active service. Following this she took up with a group who raided tombs and such in orc lands. In addition, she is known for a pursuit, interception and destruction of a raiding party of orcs who had taken human slaves, killing the horse under her in the process. Thus, she is by turns mercenary and entirely non-mercenary, even 'apparently' selflessly heroic, depending on the situation. 


Loyalties: Ex member, in good standing, of the Knights of Luna.

Music: The Life of the World to Come by Rob Dougan. It starts slow, but quickly kicks into gear. Basically a rather turgid beginning, representing her low level self loathing, explodes into ever increasing life when she finds love or combat, or both. It's not music for an ordinary life.
