On the idea of their history, you have to take into the idea that their backstory defines their character. For instance, mine is marked by years of abuse and neglect; but the culture he was raised in gave him the idea of wanting to become more than what everyone was making him out to be and be the bigger man. This gives him a helpful personality but being prone to an inferiority complex and depression.

If you want an interesting history, think of a interesting personality. For instance, I want my new character Joe to become a wanna be dog. He dresses up like them and the sorts. Well, your backstory would be connected with dogs. Perhaps he found the way they live a lot more idealistic than his dull human existence?

Seeing as your character is a wanderer, I'd advice instability in her past; or something else that made her want a longing for the new life in Port Silver. @ForestRose 's charcter Cali is a great example of why someone would want to wonder, seeing as her original family life was marked by instability in a poor family.

Experiment, I'd advice, too. Don't make it too gimicky. Enjoooy!

Just make sure your history defines who Raindes is today. Make it show why she needs a new life in Port Silver, maybe she couldn't deal with the pressure of living up to her elders expectations, maybe her tribe had an arranged marriage for her and she needed to escape. No matter what you choose, make it show how she became who she is today.

Oooh, more Forest Elves, yay! May I suggest (after taking the backstory into account) that she does not know Common? It could make for some interesting RP if she's in Port Silver and the only language she knows is Elven (which would be similar to Fae, the language of the Caparii, so she might be able to semi-understand them). It is of course your choice, but if she's lived all her life in an Eldnarí with her parents, then I can't see how she'd know other languages :3 Also, she might find stone buildings very odd, and might generally have a distrust for fire. *Resists the urge to link the Forest Elf lore.*

Whoops, I'm rambling- She sounds like one of the very remote Forest Elves (the ones that haven't seen Human civilisation, living deep in the Forests), hence the above ideas. But of course it's all up to you~ Just try not to break the lore too vastly, we have enough Elves who do that already ^.^

I would suggest you avoid the direct use of Queen Grief in the backstory. If Queen Grief were to appear in Altera, she'd be able to instantly destroy the planet, though she'd probably just settle for reducing what few people survived her onslaught to scavengers living in caves.

Are we allowed to have Grief Show up in our back stories? Especially now that she's dead?

Baron snipped me
Grief's physical presence, no. Your character being somehow influenced by her or actively worshipping her, sure. Influence being stuff like visions, dreams, etc, though they could just as likely be your own hallucinations.

Especially since she's dead.

@Ced, how did you know I had the elven pages opened while I was writing this?
And I love the idea of her not knowing common, I'm going to incorporate that into her saga.

At 8'9" you're looking at death by 35 from chronic heart failure or limb necrosis from blood pooling. That and arthritis, joint failure, maybe even throw in a little osteoporosis.

Just noticed that as well, plus you're only 154 lbs, which would mean you're literally dead at that height :p

Yeeep.

I checked the math and this character has a BMI of 9.8, which doesn't even show up on the scale. Literally a hollow skeleton.

*In Raindes's satchel can be found a heavily worn book, the cover used to read "RAINDES" in Eldarin.*
(( Information garnered from the Journal should be considered OOC ))

*Several pages in the front of the book are torn and mangled, they must have contained writing at one point, but are now illegible. The first legible entry reads . . .*
