APPEARANCE

Height: 6'1"
Weight: 185 Pounds
Hair: Light-black
Eyes: Grey-green

Description: Godric has a small, slightly pointed face. His hair is a light color that changes from brown to black depending on the angle or the light, and his eyes are an emotionless grey bordering on green. He keeps his hair at a medium length but its exact size fluctuates as he isn't picky about it and usually only cuts it when it gets in his way. A small pointed nose and mouth cap off his facial features. An expressionless look is often worn by Godric who prefers to keep his emotions on the inside.

He is not particularly tall or muscular but he is in good shape and has a toned body. Godric mostly wears a dark green and black coat that looks halfway between a jacket and a trench coat, extending past the waist on his back but staying short in front. Underneath are unremarkable black pants, brown boots which reach just below the kneecaps, and a brown shirt rounded off with a single belt. Godric is often found wearing his favorite pair of gloves, which are black in color and feature over-sized cuffs that extended just below his wrists.

PERSONALITY

Godric's aloof nature has had people refer to him as self-absorbed, cold, and uncaring but those who know him on a deeper level know he is anything but. Preferring instead to keep his emotions and thoughts to himself it is hard for others to get to know him and because of this he has trouble connecting with others and opening up. Godric is capable of love or having friends but those few people must first crack his shell before he will let them into his life. He would prefer to do things on his own but if a group or guilds current goal aligns with his he isn't above working together. When he is dealing with strangers who are friendly Godric may tone down his stronger personality traits for the sake of the group and to make accomplishing whatever mission easier. When he encounters people who are either neutral or enemies he is very curt and doesn't waste time with formalities or niceties.

Godric believes that good and evil are abstracts. People have goals and desires, people they like and people they hate, and that is what defines them, not some silly notion that one action is inherently more moral than the other. He is not above killing to achieve whatever he currently has his mind set on, but he also won't do such an action for its own sake. Local laws or rules have no meaning to Godric and he prefers to follow his own personal code, though he won't disrupt such systems for no reason, only unless they directly go against his desires. Titles, ranks, or reputation is meaningless to him and he only gives his respect to those he deems worthy, which generally hinges on their own personal power and strength.

Motivations: Personal power is Godric's primary motivation. It has become something of an obsession since a certain event in his childhood and he lives and breathes improvement every day of his life. He works hard to increase his own strength and abilities often at the cost of everything else. Godric is willing to do almost anything to become the best version of himself that he can be. To a lesser degree he can have some loyalty to those who have helped him in the past or who have earned his trust and found themselves in his inner circle. Though such an event is rare he has a weakness to those people and their well-being is important to him. He can often find himself doing things he would never do normally or going the extra mile for such people.

Fears: Godric has a deeply ingrained fear of inadequacy due to his childhood events. As such whenever he is defeated or powerless to stop something it is a serious blow to his pride and mental stability. This fear causes him to overcompensate to prove himself capable or to push his limits, often to disastrous outcomes. He may challenge someone out of his league to test his abilities or he might jump into a life threatening situation. In Godric's mind it's better to fight than run, he almost always refuses to back down from a losing battle as it would confirm his fears that he wasn't strong enough.

Positive Characteristics (+10):

  • Enhanced Strength (+3): Your character is slightly stronger than other characters when it comes to physical strength.
    Explanation: Players have C-rank strength buff passively.

  • Regeneration (+4): You heal very fast inside and outside of combat. Small cuts that go up to one inch deep are healed in the next post.
    Explanation: C-rank damage healed every post.

  • Swift (+3): You are fleet of foot. When running, you move faster than most people.
    Explanation: C-rank speed buff passive.

Negative Characteristics (-10):

  • Aloof (-1): Your manner is cold and unapproachable, distancing you from friends and strangers alike. Your preternatural intelligence lends itself to viewing others as slow-witted and a waste of your precious time. Your charisma is lowered.
    Explanation: You can't act nice to people and you can't make friends easily.

  • Daredevil (-2): You only really feel alive when you're staring death in the face. Your character is addicted to the thrill of death-defying stunts, pushing themselves to the limit at every available opportunity.
    Explanation: You can't refuse the opportunity of engaging into combat with anyone or anything that is stronger than you. You also always volunteer and perform tasks that have a risk attached to them when you are in a group.

  • Greedy (-1): Money makes your eyes light up with joy. The more, the merrier, as long as it spends. Once in a while, whenever you're divvying up shares of the loot, being offered a hefty bribe, or catching wind of some fabulous treasure, the flaw can to convince you to grab for as much money as possible.
    Explanation: You may act differently when money comes into play.

  • Proud (-1): You don't like accepting help from others. If a gift or offer of aid smacks of charity or pity even the slightest bit, you grow indignant and refuse it.
    Explanation: You win 10% less jewels from wheel spins.

  • Obsessions (-3): The character cannot help thinking about an idea, image, or impulse incessantly, often involving violence and self-doubt. These ideas are frequently repugnant to the character, but they are so strong that during times of stress (such as combat) she may be unable to concentrate on anything else, even if doing so is necessary for her survival.
    Explanation: Character must think about the target of their obsession one out of five posts.
    [Godric's obsession is his incessant pursuit of personal power and strength. Though he faces challenges head on and takes opportunities to learn from stronger opponents a loss or defeat is a serious below to his pride.]

  • Intolerance (-1): You have an irrational dislike of a certain thing. It may be an animal, a class of person, a situation, or just about anything at all. Note that some dislikes may be too trivial or ridiculous to count--a dislike of Bavarian-crème-filled donuts or mechanical pencils, for example, has no real dramatic value and will not be allowed.
    Explanation: You must act very disgusted and displeased when your dislike comes into play.
    [Godric's intolerance is weakness and complacency. Especially in himself but also in others he despises those he do not work to improve, especially if they are more than capable. Though he dislikes weakness he respects those that try to improve.]

  • Righteous (-1): The end justifies the means. You are willing to perform morally repugnant actions in order to achieve noble goals. Unfortunately, this can alienate those people who might support your cause if you didn't use such heavy-handed methods.
    Explanation: Your beliefs guide you so strongly that you are willing to kill an entire village that's harboring a thief, if it kills the thief too.
    [Godric has no moral qualms about doing what he believes is right or necessary for his personal goals. If he has to kill somebody to achieve absolute power than so be it.]


MAGIC

Magic: Barrier
Type: Caster
Classes: Offensive, Defensive, Buff
Element: None
Description: Barrier is a versatile school of magic which allows the user to create "barriers" of magical energy which the caster can then use for a variety of applications. It manifests itself as a light green translucent screen or bubble, and can be shaped or molded depending on the specific needs of the wizard. As the difficulty of the spells increase the shade of green gets darker. The caster could erect a barrier screen in front of themselves to block a technique. They could mold a barrier around their fist to increase their physical strength or place barriers around their feet which would act as springs allowing them to move faster. The magi could also project such a barrier forward as a long-range attack, which would take the shape of a small "bullet" of energy, or a large ball depending on the skill level of the caster. Upon reaching the highest ranks the user would have the potential to create massive barriers for himself and others. The various uses of this technique are only limited by the users imagination and skill level.

Weaknesses: Godric's form of Barrier Magic appears as a green translucent screen or bubble (depending on the way he forms it), and due to this his opponents arealways aware of a spell being cast. It's an obvious ability; any enemies would be able to clearly see it coming, or be able to work around it due to this limitation.Because the barriers are made of magical essence the caster must draw upon his own physical and mental energies to both create and maintain his techniques. Overuse or holding a barrier against a powerful magic for too long will start to weaken the user. At the lowest levels of drain this could simply cause the wizard to feel sleepy or take a little extra time to mentally process things. At medium levels of drain the user would start to experience exhaustion, and would need rest before being able to perform at his highest levels again. At maximum drain the user would be starting to put his life at risk. Bleeding from the nose and eyes would be common side effects at this stage. Repeated use of this magic after reaching maximum levels of drain would result in severe damage to the users body or in the worst of cases, death.


HISTORY

Godric was born in a small unnamed village in the countryside of Fiore, far away from the pillars of civilization. This village was unremarkable and was for the most part self-sustaining, being that it was so far out of the way. Even still the village had a small Inn which made a respectable profit off of travels from foreign lands and kingdoms. Godric's family were the proprietors of the Inn and he spent most of his youth helping out here and there. He enjoyed the wanderers and strangers staying during their travels and despite his parents warnings he would sneak away to be regaled with tales of adventure and strange lands. The outside world seemed so exciting and mysterious and was a welcome break from his actual existence which he grew to resent.

One day when he had grown to a teenager a wanderer stayed at the Inn and Godric struck up a friendship with him. This man stayed for almost a month and in that time he taught the boy of the outside world, and of magic. His parents being strictly against it the pair would practice in secrecy. Eventually Godric learned how to use the Barrier Magic that his teacher used, though he was only capable of making small shields. With that accomplished his friend and mentor declared that his time in the village was over. Before he left he promised to return one day to check up on his student's progress. Godric never saw him again.

For the next couple years he continued to work in the Inn with his parents, and his two little sisters who were now almost ten had begun to help out as well. He trained his Barrier Magic almost everyday in his spare time, thinking only of the world and the wonders that lay outside his village. Godric was out in the forest one day working on his abilities when he could smell something burning. As he approached the village his sight was impaired by great plumes of smoke. In the distance the village burned and he waded through the smoke and fire. He made his way into the Inn and managed to gather his sisters together before the Inn came crashing down around them. His Barrier Magic was just able to protect the trio but his family and the village were lost in the attack.

Godric never found out who or what had razed the village. His sisters said it happened so fast, one minute they were helping in the back and the next the place was ablaze. They had distance family in the interior of the Kingdom who took them in and cared for them after the terrible tragedy. Godric never got over what had happened and felt immense guilt over not being there and not being strong enough to save his entire family. This event had a profound effect on him and is a major motivation factor in his search for personal power. Haunting him in his dreams he awakens everyday to train and push his limits as a way of atoning for his perceived weakness.
