Nalinna Blackstone [Human]
#1
Player: Symi

Character Full Name: Nalinna Gem Blackstone

Character In-Game Name: Nali

Nickname(s): Nali

Association(s): House Blackstone

Race: Human

Class: (OOC: Rogue) IC: Mage in training with the possibility of going bad. (ie:warlock/necromancer)

Skills and Abilities: A variety of very fail spells, very nearly untrained in many areas so far. As a former orphan/street ruffian she has a few knife skills but no formal training with them.

Age: 18

Sex: Female

Hair: Black

Eyes: Dark Blue

Weight: 89lbs

Height: 4'7

Usual Garments/Armor: Pants/shirt cloth with bits of leather, varying degrees of cleanliness and quality.

Other: Nali's small stature is attributed to the fact that as a whore's neglected daughter and as an orphan she received very little proper sustenance. She was malnourished most of her life and it is a miracle she survived. She was somewhat better fed at the orphanage but the damage to her growth was already done.

Personality: Nali is impetuous and exuberant, a normally kindly young lass with a very curious nature. Her personality is ever fluid and changing however because of those she lives with and the strange happenings that tend to befall her family. Recently, her curiosities have taken a turn for the dark and morbid. The little twists and changes of her life have strongly affected her sense of morality.

The changes to her morality are very simple and subtle. A lack of empathy for those "stupid" enough to get killed or tortured by members of the household. A very soft view on death, a lack of impact when those she does not know well die. Greed and immoral behaviors of those around her are completely overlooked due to her inability to do anything about them. In short, she is beginning to view her horrific environment as normal.

History Timeline Style:
Ages 0-5: Nali lived these years at a tavern and inn owned by dwarves. Her mother was a small woman for her profession and provided an exotic "treat" for dwarven men. A great deal of Nali's accent was influenced by her time with the dwarves. She has a horrible incurable hint of female brogue to her inflections.

Ages 5-10: These years were spent in Elwynn Forest, her mother managed to get a job as a bar wench at the Goldshire inn. (A questionably respectable job.) During this time she got quite a bit of tutoring from the local forest dwellers in the art of thievery. She also learned to pull her own little cons and trick poor souls out of their hard earned coin. Of course, all her coins went to her mother and were quickly wasted on alcohol and 'beauty potions' which were really a horrible drug that some bastard had addicted her mother to.

Ages 10-12: These short years were quite significant because Nali was on her own. Her mother passed away twenty-three days after her tenth birthday and the young girl was left to fend for herself in a world unforgiving of youth and innocence. Though, it was questionable at this point whether this particular ruffian youth could be portrayed as innocent. She thieved to stay alive, there was no time or reason for her to mope and mourn her mother, not if she wanted to continue breathing. On a botched thieving mission into a small cottage near Northshire Abbey, she found herself caught red-handed by a kindly old priest. The old man eventually managed to talk her into getting respectable work, he took her to the Stormwind Orphanage and introduced her to the matrons there. She was too old to be coddled but she wholeheartedly embraced working there.

Ages 12-18: She spent these years working in the orphanage. Her duties included many things she was familiar with already and plenty she was not. She was expected to clean up after the small children, run messages for the matrons, watch after the young ones at times and perhaps the most baffling duty to her, she was expected to learn. They sent her for at least two hours a day to be tutored in the Cathedral by some of the priests who worked charity cases and though they hoped she might, she never showed any interest in joining the clergy and learning the spells she studied. What interested her most was magery but she was quite positive she would never have the money to afford a mage tutor. Two weeks after her eighteenth birthday she was approached by a very noble looking priestess who claimed that not only was Nali her sister but that her family wanted her home. Nali was soon spirited away to the stormy madhouse that is Castle Blackstone.

I like the profile, dear!

The only problem is that it's a bit bare. We usually ask for the history and personality to be upwards of ten lines, and while you just scrape by it really doesn't do your character any justice.

Expand on that and you should get approval easily!

I added a tad more to the personality but I'm really not quite sure what I can add to the history. The tiny details I tend to leave out because I feel it detracts from the character as a whole in rp with others to allow everything out in the open. I made sure to include anything that could possibly be argued against or pointed out as a timeline flaw, the small things, (ie: Scars and how she got them or little emotional moments.) were left out to allow people to actually get to know her and also to let her develop naturally as a character without too many pre-set ideas. I do promise I've included absolutely anything that could come up as controversial or "an issue."

WAIT
MESSING UP ROSEN AS USUAL

The Blackstone house is one of nobility, and Nobles are only open to Grunts.

It has been explained to me that they are not nobles. HOWEVER, even if they were, Nali is not a noble. She is the daughter of a whore and the -bastard- child of the former leading member of the household. This makes her -quite- common and I've already had another profile of a bastard child of a -noble- family approved. ^^

Aye. I have always been of the mind that a noble needs a special profile when they wish to claim title, wealth or influence.

Since Nali is as noble as a wet rag, I can't see her being able to claim any of that!

Four foot seven is -extremely- small for an adult female. It actually is considered a handicap (in the states) at that height.

Luckily this is fantasy and if we prefer to play short characters it's not so unbelievable. As far as I know, it's perfectly allowable as I've already met one other person who plays a character that short. They even received a custom height for it.

Except for the fact that we still do have guidelines we wish for players to adhere to. I understand that we do allow some players to have shorter or taller heights, but that is extremely short.

I'd encourage you to bump her height up a bit, or at least explain why she is that short in her profile.

But it is just a recommendation, I'll let whoever decide if it is okay.

I deliberately chose a height that was already approved on someone else. ^^ I don't plan on changing it because it would completely change the character, the height does influence her personality. As I said, her mother was very short and Nali spent much of her time a starving orphan, her growth was stunted very early on. Not every one starts growing again even when they begin to get regular meals. I did think it was implied but if it's an insanely big deal I will add it in the "other" section as a note for those who miss the other details.

If there's any dispute as to the height of this particular character...

I'd just like to point out that there are currently six player characters with modded sizes.

I'm not sure why number seven seems to be such a big deal, to be quite frank.

Oh, I know that, Belth. I even acknowledged it.

Like I said, it doesn't really matter if I think it is a bit short. I mean, I am just a GM.

There is no need for that.

She's short, yes. But we allow people to play short humans.

Anyways! Her height is canon! Just barely, but still allowed, all according to Wowwiki.

Actually, there is a need for it Rosen.

But like I said, people obviously didn't read what I said. I said it was a suggestion.
