Personality: Althair is an man that always travels around Azeroth searching answers from the Light he so much believes.

He has an special hability to read the people’s souls and mind with the Light’s help to search if there’s any source of evil cursing the same. He’s a calm man. But he just get angry when someone disrespect him, his comrades or the Holy Light that guides him.

History: Althair was born in the Kingdom of Lordaeron, 25 years before Varian Wrynn’s born. As a child, he was raised in around Hearthglen, his parents worked for an rich land owner called Rivendare. But his fate was not to be an farmer. In the same town, he entered in the Light’s path as an apprentice under Bishop Garvenus Jhorgensen. The bishop had faith in the boy and believed that one day he should be an Light bearer in the field. When Prince Arthas was made a paladin in the Cathedral of Light in Stormwind, Althair, in his 35 years, was fascinated with the great city. Bishop Garvenus, now sick in an bed, send him an letter telling him that his time had come to raise to an true priest of the Holy Light and Stormwind was the place. There he stood to learn more of the Light. He and the other apprentices, under constant attention of the Church's old priests, learned the ways of the Light. He was not upset and charged anymore of the long hour of praying he was set under. His praying was now more comfortable than in his young age. To him, the Light was embracing him more than once and he felt that with such happiness. Then in some years arrived an letter, saying that his first mentor and his family had fallen under the Plague that affected Lordaeron’s northern lands. He went back in dispair but yet faithful that this Plague could be contained. But, when he arrived it was too late. Lordaeron have already felt, after Arthas killed his own father and his mentor, Uther Lightbringer. He only thought about his family, now undead and his hometown. He runned his horse to Hearthglen as hurry as the wind just to arrive there and see the city in a bad state and full of knights of the once mighty Silver Hand. He arrived just in the time that the message carrier arrived with news of Highlord Alexandros Mograine has fallen. After hear this, he takes leave from Lordaeron and go to Ironforge. He found food and a bed to sleep there in the dwarven tavern. It was where he learned to like dwarven ale. It was where he met with an young paladin in training called Vandermar. When he questioned the boy about his origins, he said that he came from Stromgarde, and that he would not stop in trying to help rebuild his kingdom for nothing and that the Light would hlep him. Althair saw great faith in the boy and promissed him that in his daily prays he would not forget him and his cause. Then, in an week he departed to Stormwind to seek the Light’s help. He was searching some guidance in the Light to end his torment insisde his very soul. His questions and doubts were answered after so much pray and penitence, the Light just set him calm with its essence. After this, he stood in the Cathedral, praying in its halls and helping young apprentices in his training. In one of the days he was in his daily pray, the Light was through him but did not answered him as ever did. He only realized that he should went back to his hometown, Hearthglen, now an reformed city after the Argent Crusade returned from its campaign in Northrend against the Lich King. Althair was decided to return back to Hearthglen to again be in his home, in an place where he could feel alright and welcome every time, as the city now was under rule of the Argent Crusade . In some days he departed, and with an smile in his face, he returned to his ancient home, riding his new brown horse wich he name Strongest, in memory of his father's old horse. After he was ready in the town, he quickly was going to the Chapel, to search what the Light was trying to tell. After hours of pray, the Light communicated he again, just to say that he should search for answers in distant places, where so much people does not have rights to go. There he would find the answers to questions or problems. In the actual days, he search for this answer in various sacred places, and he will not rest until he finds what he seek.

...Don't repost the whole profile, just edit the first post!
Perhaps it is your imperfection that which grants you free will, that allows you to persevere against cosmically calculated odds. You prevailed where the Titans' own perfect creations have failed.

You'll need to wait for a staff member (GM, Trial or FH) to read and make the post on that.

It's best to edit the original post rather than make a new one with added edits, otherwise the thread tends to get long and messy.

Anyway!

Issues with Althair's timeline:
  • Varian Wrynn was born ten years before the First War, which would make it year -10. So, to be born 25 years before him, he'd have to be born in year -35, making him 65 years old now. Changing that to being born 10 years before Varian Wrynn would fix it handily.
  • Arthas was made a paladin when he was 19, in the year 15. This would make Althair 35 years old, rather than 21.

On another note, we've got a policy against mingling too much with extremely powerful, well known lore figures - Alonsus Faol, Tirion Fordring, etc. These characters should be replaced with ones like Jhorgenson. The reason for this is, if he is on speaking / friendly terms with such important figures then most people in the world would know about him as well, which would make him much more powerful and well-known, which isn't fair for them. Simply changing these characters to smaller level NPCs, or making up characters (this is fine) to replace them, provided they are less well-known - but Alonsus Faol could be replaced with a bishop, for example, and he wouldn't need to send a letter to stay in Hearthglen, as it's an open city and friendly to priests, they'd likely give him a bed anyway.

Also, Althair's ability to read souls is fine, as long as it doesn't breach metagaming rules - that is to say, that people are allowed to deny the ability OOCly, but if they agree to it OOCly then he's allowed to use it. I doubt this should be much of an issue, but I'd like to clear it just in case!

I think that is all. If there isn't, I'll make an addendum, but otherwise making these edits should be enough for an approval!

@lordnathal : just a point about the profile approval process and editing: instead of editing your posts like you did in post #5 to let us know you've made the edits, make sure to reply/bump the thread stating that you've made the edits or are going to. If a staff member doesn't see a new reply there is less of a chance that they'll check it again if they were the last post.
