    text-dividers-01-c-o.png
    cooltext265791679435263.png
    The Favored:
    If Áedán favours an individual, he will count them as allies. He would protect them with his life if it is called for.

    +Arthur Ashenfeld: A man of the same faith. May the light of Ignis give him courage. Morbid

    +Fronslin: Old elf. But kind enough to let me stay in his home till I had talked to Archduc Bolivar I. Fronslin

    + Thorne: A good and godly realm. I have only heard good things.

    The Neutral:
    If neutral, Áedán will regard them with the same level of respect and attention that he gives to strangers. He doesn't really particularly care about them.

    + Blackstone: Got a job in the city now. That's a step up from being unemployed.

    + Forrest Westergard: He's alright. I would need to learn more about him to trust him though. LeftwardElk

    + Archduc Bolivar I: He's alright but I have a feeling that he doesn't respect Ignis as much as he should. DraconDarknight

    The Disfavored:
    If Áedán disfavors someone, he believes that for some reason that they are not worth his time and effort. He still respects them, but he doesn't count them as allies.

    The Heretics:
    Áedán despises anyone who slanders the faith, practices magic, or worships false Gods and believes that they ought to repent or be burned at a stake for their sins, preferably both.

    + "Westmay": Some lord/duke that is somehow connected to the Kanes (Who are they?). Never seen him but from what I hear -- he practices the most foulest of arts. Mitch

  2. Jase

    Jase Loyal Servant of Altera

    Character Name:
    Áedán Ó Corván
    Alt Name:
    drunk_on_cheez or CheezAlt
    Race:
    Human
    In-game Town/City:
    Blackstone
    House:
    Ó Corván
    cooltext265856838837586.png
    IMG_5123.jpg
    text-dividers-01-c-o.png
    cooltext265857267448490.png
    Eye Color: A dark brown.
    Hair color length and style: A mop of generally straight hair.
    Height:
    Weight: A little on the heavy side.
    Skin tone and type: German looking.
    Shape of face: Rounded
    Distinguishing marks/piercing:
    + Large burn scars on his left hand from a childhood religious ritual.
    + Wears very fancy clothing.
    Predominant feature: Either his eyes which can be described as enchanting, or his left hand due to it being horribly scared from childhood burns.
    Is he healthy?: Although he is on the heavy side, he is healthy.
    Does he look healthy? Yes. Except for his hand.
    Clothing: He is particularly fond of rich and colourful clothing. He will always try to wear the latest and most extravagant of cloths where he can regardless of the work he does or the place he is in. The more colourful, expensive and frilly the better. He takes an almost obsessive care of his clothing and appearance.
    Hotness rating: 10/10

    text-dividers-01-c-o.png
    cooltext265859870797566.png
    Due to him consistently emulating the actions and appearances of the nobility (as seen from his tastes in clothing), Áedán has become familiar with writing and reading, as well as some other traits. How else can he appreciate good clothing?
    As such:
    Writing: 5/10
    Reading: 5/10
    Organisation: 6/10
    Cleanliness: 6/10​

    Áedán believes that showing spontaneous emotion is a mortal weakness of Man, against the will of Ignis. He consistently attempts to deny his emotions any foothold on his thoughts and mind, and due to his age, he has gotten pretty good at it. This shows as him rarely showing any emotions that are perceived as negative -- anger, sadness, jealousy. More on this in the Beliefs section.

    As such:
    Aura of calm: 9/10
    Reading emotion: 0/10​

    Due to not having any formal training:
    Fighting: 1/10

    Other skills:
    Holding down liquor: 4/10
    Singing: 2/10
    Foresight: 1/10
    Talking: 5/10
    Lying: 7/10
    Drawing: 2/10
    Medicinal Use: 1/10​
    text-dividers-01-c-o.png
    cooltext265861734133862.png
    Habits:
    + Appreciating fine clothing
    + (Some) early morning meditation to ease the mind back into its aura of calm.
    Drinks (alcohol): Will drink the cheapest alcohol available, but partial to the occasional good wine (as he likes to emulate the upper classes).
    How much: Until he either passes out or until the bartender realises he is broke and can't pay.
    Greatest Strength: Rational and logical mental evaluations of problems in highly tense situations (due to aura of calm)
    Greatest Weakness: Pride, and his love for expensive clothing
    Soft spot: Good clothing, what else?
    Is his soft spot obvious, why/why not: Very.
    Biggest Vulnerability: N/A
    Most at ease when: At a bar or tavern with his back to the wall.
    Most ill at ease when: There are unfamiliar surroundings, peoples and in danger.
    Priorities: N/A
    How he feels about himself: My mind is a beast that needs to be contained, and harnessed.
    Optimist or pessimist? Why?: Pessimist.
    Introvert or extrovert? Why? N/A
    Drives and motives: Aeden seeks to continue to serve the divine will of Ignis, in thought and action.
    Mannerisms:
    - Will scratch at scars on his hand

    text-dividers-01-c-o.png
    cooltext265862158726794.png
    Short Term:
    - Establish a permanent residence, and hold a job. [Done!]
    - "Where's my drink??" [Ongoing!]
    - Get a big sword or halberd (the bigger the better) and do weapons training. [Not yet started!]
    - Newer, better, frillier clothes [Ongoing!]

    Long Term:
    - Meet the heads of the faith [Not yet started!]

    text-dividers-01-c-o.png
    cooltext265862073738499.png
    General:
    - A small pouch containing a few radiants, enough to buy two cheap ales and a potato.
    - A plasma rifle
    - A small collection of oddly shaped rocks (To remind him to stay grounded, and to aid his aura of calm)
    - A necklace around his neck with a small Ignis inspired cross attached to it. (The cross is made from iron and is attached to neck by string.)
    - A large handkerchief in his pocket.

    text-dividers-01-c-o.png
    cooltext265862113031542.png
    + Met Fronslin the Forest Elf in a tavern in Storm's Landing and then headed off to Blackstone in the hope of finding a job.
    + Talks to Forrest and the Archduke Bolivar I, and gets a job in the vineyards. Is also promised a job as a soldier if he talks to the commander of the Hawklight forces in the region. Gets a apartment in Blackstone.

  3. Jase

    Jase Loyal Servant of Altera

    Character Name:
    Áedán Ó Corván
    Alt Name:
    drunk_on_cheez or CheezAlt
    Race:
    Human
    In-game Town/City:
    Blackstone
    House:
    Ó Corván
    cooltext266306457831005.png

    This is a guide to some of the belief systems behind Áedán Ó Corván. These include a devotion to Ignis and Stoicism. These may change over time, and I will update these further if that happens.

    Note currently these are kinda a mess and I will begin to make it more legible over the lifetime of the character. I haven't fully hashed all of this stuff out yet.

    text-dividers-01-c-o.png
    cooltext266307241160543.png

    Nature of Ignis and the Gods:
    The belief that Ignis is the center of the universe, and the belief that he represents all that is good and true is a core concept that drives Áedán's actions. This belief is apparent in his words, actions and thoughts.

    Áedán believes that Ignis is the center of the Pantheon. He is, in essence, the Pantheon. All other beings that others call "Gods" like Sallana, Jax and Crusade are subordinate personalities that Ignis uses to relate to those who worship him. Áedán dislikes how some worship these personalities of Ignis, rather that Ignis himself. (It is like speaking to a mask that someone is wearing that talking to the person behind the mask.)

    How these personalities are personified will change based on his worshipper's needs.

    Jax represents man's need for luck.
    Sallana his need for love.
    Shallahera, his need for growth.

    How Ignis appears to Man never changes.

    How this affects RP:

    These concepts may be shown through RP interactions by his slight dislike for those who directly talk about the personalities without recognizing Ignis for what he is.

    Rite of Burning:
    A coming of age rite that was celebrated in the region that Áedán grew up in. It requires the covering of the arm in a protective salve against flames, building a large bonfire, and meditating with a hand in the flames.
    By meditating, the individual opens their mind, and with their hand in the flames, they are physically and spiritually close to Ignis.
    Sometimes an individual will have their hand in the flames for too long and will burn their hand. They may not notice the moment it begins to happen due to the deep meditation required for the connection with Ignis.

    Common ways he addresses Ignis:

    - Burning God
    - God of Light and Truth

    Sample blessing he may use:
    - May the Burning God bless your passage to the divine and breathe peace into your thoughts, mind, and presence.

    Concepts behind heresy:
    Áedán believes any who worship false gods, or practices magic are heretics. These men and women have fallen from the divine grace of Ignis, and the only way their souls can be redeemed is to be purified by burning at the stake. Such is the only way for these souls to return to the embrace of Ignis.
    Áedán believes that although the heretic may not see beyond the pain in the cleansing of his soul at the pyre, the heretic's best chance at eternal happiness and contentment lies with Ignis.

    Mortal desires and emotion are only temporary and fluctuate day to day, and only through Ignis can one be happy forever.

    I was on the train without anything else to do so - I added some relations for Fronslin , DraconDarknight , LeftwardElk , Morbid , Blackstone, Thorne and a guy called "Westmay" based on rp from the last couple of days.

    Also I updated timeline.
