[Noble] [Ranged Cavalry] [Human] Ashlynn Luvelle
#1
( Thanks Reigen for moving it into the Archive, I ended up rewriting her while keeping some points from the other profile. She should be more of a Noble now, and I think I've managed to flesh her out a bit more while being a less 'rebellious' Noble. )

Player: Psychyn

Character Full Name: Ashlynn Luvelle

Character In-Game Name: Ashlynn

Nickname(s): (Preferred name) Ash.

Association(s): Luvelle Family, The Alliance

Race: Human

Class: Ranged Cavalry (Warrior)

Skills and Abilities:

Ashlynn has by trial and error become knowledgeable in the field of herbalism, but it is still very much an experiment whenever she tries to make use of her knowledge. She's build up a small resistance to poison after having poisoned herself several times by taking in small doses of the wrong plants. She can however, very much improvise and survive in the wilderness using the environment to her advantage; from building shelters to hunting for her food.

Alongside that, she's capable of mounted combat specifically with guns. The less strength and skill required makes the gun her preferred weapon over the bow or other weaponry. While she strives to avoid close combat when possible, she has practiced in using a saber in case things don't go her way. She has become knowledgeable on mounted manoeuvres and riding a horse has become second nature for Ashlynn. On foot, she prefers make-shift traps and ambushes rather then face-to-face 'honourable' combat.

Age: 27

Sex: Female

Hair: Cherry red, tied up in a knot. When loose it reaches just below her shoulders.

Eyes: Blue

Weight: 88kg, muscles mainly in her stomach (abs), hips and legs.

Height: 170 cm

Usual Garments/Armor:

Strongly varies on the scene as she usually tries to blend in with the area, she has a formal dress just in case it is ever required to wear one but feels really self-conscious in it. She can be seen wearing cloth, leather and mail equipment but would be absolutely ineffective in plate. Choosing to carry as little as possible, she has modified her saddlebags to allow for a multitude of guns to be taken on her travels. On horse, her preferred weaponry is an typical human long rifle with iron sights on it. (( Think the black rifle available at the OOC vendor! )) A typical long-range firearm with only one shot in the chamber, that has to be reloaded after each fired shot. She uses it in her charges before the fighting has yet to fully erupt, choosing to snipe off enemies in the distance as she rides into battle.

Reference: http://www.wowpedia.org/File:Long_Rifle.jpg (Without the scope, iron sight.)

For close-range, she has purchased a more advanced shotgun; A single barrelled pump action shotgun with a chamber that holds eight shells. As she charges closer to her enemies, she switches the long range rifle for the pump action one, allowing her to rapidly alternate between targets and unleash a barrage. The single barrel has less recoil then it's two barrelled counterpart and in tight situation is easier to manoeuvre (at the cost of firepower). It clearly has less range then the long rifle, and it's ammunition is meant to do more wide-spread damage instead of focussing on a single area of the body. The side of the shotgun has six shell carriers, made from leather at the hilt of the shotgun.

Reference: http://cdn2.armslist.com/sites/armslist/...ad_640.jpg

Alongside these two rifles, she carries a (gnomish crafted) handgun with chamber in a holster at her left hip. Able to quickly draw and fire it with less time needed then the other two rifles, mainly used as last resort weapon. She takes it with her when on foot, keeping the ammunition for it in a pouch at her right hip. It can fire six rounds before she needs to reload the bullets one by one, and has a tendency of jamming in the chamber. Nonetheless, she knows it will save her life one day and thus keeps it around.

Reference: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_qiABbAVBJYA/TH...5B1%5D.jpg

When all else fails, she has a saber which was granted to her the day she began to lead the cavalry division of her house. It is of simple design, with leather as hilt. She has sharpened both sides of it to increase her combat effectiveness, able to use both edges of the weapon. It lacks any other modifications or adjustments apart from that.

Reference: http://www.cavhooah.com/media/catalog/pr..._saber.jpg

Other: Carries another pouch just next to the ammunition pouch which is filled with herbs.

Alignment: Neutral Good

Personality:

Ashlynn is determined to do what she believes is right, following her own conscience while trying to avoid laws and regulations that restrict her. She realizes that sometimes she has no other choice then to follow the law, but will subtly try to find loopholes to bend the law to her personal preference. She holds freedom high in her own believes, believing that a person should be able to do as he or she wants to if it aids the world around them in a positive way. Sometimes that means a law has to be crossed, such as a thief stealing bread to feed his own family; Or a Noble who chooses to send only half of the men asked so that the other half may aid in the lands nearby instead.

She acknowledges the need for balance in things however, as too much freedom leads to anarchy which in turn leads to survival of the fittest. She can follow the law, providing the law makes sense and is a 'just' one. If the law makes the people happy and protects them, then she will not fight it; If it is harming her people however, then she's quick to raise her voice and step up for the people.

Ashlynn enjoys helping others in any way she can, be it through sharing some of her wealth or providing equipment or materials. She realizes not everyone is as 'fortunate' as her, and tries to not be dragged into politics or traditions. She longs for a simple, more balanced and equal life instead of being spoiled and having everything she could ever want because it is just not satisfying her. She seeks to provide direct, visual aid by either boosting the local economy by spending more then one usually would; Training farmers to defend themselves, learning people new skills and abilities they can utilize to survive and so forth.

Her passion and strength lies with helping others, lending her voice to those that are voiceless and standing up for them when asked to. The Horde has no place in her 'ideal' world and as such that same passion can turn into fury to stop them from hurting humanity or it's allies. Ever since they destroyed Stormwind and killed several of her family, she's felt a gap in her life and has been unable to give it a place in her heart. They took away who she loved, and they will pay the price.

History:

[ Born in year -2, 0 years old.]

Ashlynn Luvelle, born into the Luvelle family of whom most resided in Stormwind, her birth taking place in a summer estate in Gilneas. Close near the richest and wealthiest of the city with her family consisting of nine members. She had three brothers and a sister, with a grandfather and grandmother to top it off. While her grandparents had chosen to stay and reside in Stormwind, her father James had travelled towards Gilneas with Ashlynn's brothers and sister to witness the birth.

Jake was the youngest, only three years older then Ashlynn. Jerod, named after his grandfather was the middle one (14 years) with John being the oldest (18 years older). John and Amy were twins and shared much of their looks.

One big happy family, that had it all; Wealth, power, land and riches. After Ashlynn's birth, James would travel back towards Stormwind with Jake, John and Amy. Tamara, Ashlynn's mother stayed behind with Jerod in Gilneas, along with several servants and guards.

[ Year 0 - 2 ]

Upon the news of Stormwind's destruction and the nearby lands reaching the family, in which both of her Grandparents had been killed along with her father and younger brother, the family would hold their funeral within Gilneas. They would stay for another six years before deeming their travel safe enough, and would return to Stormwind to reclaim their lands. Within Gilneas they had objected to the decision of the Greymane Wall, but had no power within Gilneas to prevent it from happening. Not wishing to leave the Gilneas residence fully unattended, foolishly assuming the shut-down would last perhaps a few weeks at most, they assigned Jerod (now eighteen), to stay behind and oversee the servants and estate there. He would be shut in with Gilneas of which all news halted shortly afterwards, a regrettable decision as they would never hear from him again.

As they reached the rubble of what once was Stormwind by ship, she found John and Amy to be waiting for them. He had taken the tasks of his father upon him and actively helped with Stormwind's rebuilding, providing what remaining men they had after the raid. Amy would marry in the same year, to strengthen their house and raise morale of those that had survived within.

[ Year 12 - 14 ]

Ashlynn had grown up in a protective environment, restricted to the family's lands. Her remaining family had rebuild both the land and military force and had their hands full. As such, most of Ashlynn's education was left to a teacher and most of her struggles aided to by servants; She didn't like it one bit, and felt a great loss in her life.

She grew up into a wilder child, exploring the lands around the estate. Hide and seek was her favorite game and she talked a befriended guard into it whenever she could. She found her bond with John to fade, being pushed around and ignored as he hopelessly tried to replace her father. Something he simply could not do, no matter how hard he tried.

[ Year 14 - 16 ]

Ashlynn had taken it up on herself to become a soldier, believing their lives would be far more interesting then her own. She was spoiled like a princess, treated like a child and kept safe whenever possible. All the attention, rules and regulations began to irritate her more and more and she had frequent fights with her family. She was a rebel teen and protested against everything offered and granted to her, just trying to do the things that made her happy.

One particular night it escalated into a fight in which her brother had smacked her, and despite having screamed and pointed out that he wasn't her father; He had ignored her, and ordered servants to lock her up in her room.

At this point, she began to protest against the rules, etiquette and restrictions vocally. Hoping to be able to do what she wanted for a change, instead of doing what was required and expected. She feared she would end up the same as Amy, who despite having everything, did nothing else but her duty.

[ Year 16 - 18 ]

House Luvelle thrived, only having become bigger and wealthier but the relationships within had changed. Behind the wealthy and seemingly perfect outward appearance of the house, arguments erupted to which they eventually gave in. Ashlynn had stuck to her desire of becoming a soldier and would begin to be trained accordingly, something both John and Tamara did not appreciate.

She refused to marry anyone and in one of her first training days the men had been ordered to go easy on her, treating her like a fragile child. Where others ran twenty laps, she ran two and quickly grew sick of it. She challenged whoever she could to a spar, ordering them to treat her like a real soldier or be dismissed from all service. While not having the real authority to do so, it grasped the attention of some of the younger soldiers and she quickly found herself to be out skilled, resulting in frequent bruises.

Ashlynn got through them without complaining, and in a way enjoyed the pain as it increased her limits. She learned to take and deal with more, learned to fight from horseback and discovered she had a knack for ranged combat. Something she ended up enjoying very much over the years.

[ Year 18 - 20 ]

After two years of training, Ashlynn was send with several of the men on a first mission. She had yet to taste real combat but she deemed herself ready, feeling disappointed when it proved to be just an escort mission. As they travelled from Elwynn into Westfall with a carriage that included the payment for several soldiers stationed there, they were ambushed by the Defias.

The fight quickly escalated and several of the guards were killed till only her and three others were left. Facing the overwhelming odds, the Defias would have killed them all had Ashlynn not offered herself to go with them as captive. Her life in exchange for the three soldiers, offering the Defias not only the pay but also the ability to ransom her back to the house; They accepted.

John had no other choice upon hearing the news to accept to the deal, but as it almost had finished peacefully, he retaliated. In the fight, another guard died to protect Ashlynn where as John would be wounded by a sword. He survived the encounter but would forever be scarred across the chest where as Ashlynn had been kept safe by the guards.

During the travel back home they would talk for a first time since months, restoring some of the broken relationship. She would move out to the second estate so that she would be able to find her way without John directing every move, and for that she would be grateful.

[ Year 29 - 27 ]

Ashlynn had taken it upon herself to practice, to become more proficient with ranged combat and had learned more techniques to defend herself. She had found herself reading books about herbs and healing, travelling further and further to find them. It had been a slow and tedious process at first, mistaking any plant for a useful one; Learning to not be always so impulsive after poisoning herself numerous times. She had learned how to improvise and tend to wounds, being tough yet flexible and in the last five years she had found herself to take on a leading role of the cavalry.

Yeah but after my last thread fell off the board and went in limbo for two months I'm making sure this one isn't. All it requires is a read and a comment like any other profile.

Quote:[ Born in year 4 - 0 ]

While her grandparents had chosen to stay and reside in Stormwind, her father James had travelled towards Gilneas with Ashlynn's brothers and sister to witness the birth.

Quote:[ Year 6 - 2 ]

Upon the news of Stormwind's destruction and the nearby lands reaching the family, in which both of her Grandparents had been killed along with her father and younger brother, the family would depart from Gilneas.

Stormwind was destoryed in the first war, which happened in year 0. This is when the character is born, thus it seems odd that her family, from Stormwind, would be visiting during that time and then return back to a City under siege. Year six is when the humans took the land back, started to cage up the orcs and started to rebuild the city. News might be slow, however the amount of refugees that would have come to the north [some faster with the aid of mages], it wouldn't have been horribly so.

Quote: [ Year 14 - 10 ]

Ashlynn had mostly stayed on the land they still owned, the rubble of Stormwind being deemed no place for a child.

I may be reading this wrong, but it seems as though during this time in the profile it is implied that the city is still in rubbles. However, Stormwind was fully finished being rebuilt in year 14, so during this time it wouldn't have been a danger. Once more, I'm unsure if this is an error or a misread on my part.

Much appreciated Reigen! I mixed up the timeline years there with 0 and 6. ;.; She's actually born in year four which is even a bigger derp, as her father would have seemingly walked out whistlin' during the sacking of Stormwind. Lol.

As for:

Quote:[ Year 14 - 10 ]

Ashlynn had mostly stayed on the land they still owned, the rubble of Stormwind being deemed no place for a child.

I was trying to imply she had stayed on the land for as long as Stormwind was being rebuild; Failed that sentence. I'll have it edited in the next ~10 minutes.

<3 Much appreciated!

Edit:

- Adjusted her age, made her 2 years older for the timeline to make sense.
- Reworded a few things.

Quote:Upon the news of Stormwind's destruction and the nearby lands reaching the family, in which both of her Grandparents had been killed along with her father and younger brother, the family would hold their funeral within Gilneas. They would stay for another six years before deeming their travel safe enough, and would return to Stormwind to reclaim their lands.

Not sure about the 'fully unattended' sentence, is that working?

- Removed the bit regarding the rubble of Stormwind.

That sentence works, yes. It all looks fine now to me.

Cherry red hair? Did she dye it? Just find it rather interesting.

Quote:Her preferred choice with weaponry would be her hunting rifle with a scope on it

Does she actually use the scope while on a moving horse? I would believe she would make use of more than one type of rifle: one for stationary shooting and the other for when her horse is moving.

I would like to ask if you can make note of what kinds of rifles and firearms she use--as mounted cavalry, descriptions of firearms and how she'd use it would benefit her skills and abilities as a class variant. Humans wouldn't be able to use gnomish semi-automatic rifles and handguns unless stated, so if she is using traditional human firearms, which tend to be manually-loadable guns (like muskets and flintlock-styled rifles), her battle strategies would really differ.

I can suggest she carries different rifles for different tasks, especially if they to be reloaded completely by gunpowder-pouch and a single bullet; her horse's saddlebag can be adjusted to have her pull out her different guns on a whim. A shotgun can be used for closer ranged "panic" attacks, a long-ranged musket for further distant targets, and so forth. Scoped rifles are usually intended for sniping, and they're best used when the shooter is stationary.

Those are my suggestions by far. I'll give my approval once I see your skillset more elaborated :).

That's actually an awesome suggestion and I'm loving the idea of using multiple firearms. I'll give it some thought and will edit it in later tonight! (As I'm currently alt-tabbed out of a LoL game) As for her hair; Yup! It's like.. Well, a brighter-red hair color

I was thinking along the lines of:
http://vi.sualize.us/hayley_cherry_red_h..._is4d.html

Thank you! <3

Edit: Updated it a whole bit, I'm not sure if it is too much or too little still! I'm not sure what else to give her, a fancy hat seems fitting. I actually love the suggestion you gave and looked up various guns to get a better idea of things, this seemed to be fitting in alright. Added pictures to clarify it in terms of looks and uses.

I added in the jamming of the pistol to balance it out a bit more, I intend to (if I end up using it IC) to roll for the shots and see how it goes.

I'm not sure if you wanted it under skills or her appearance. :3 Thinking of her skills, should I write a bit regarding her knowledge on cavalry formations?

Quote:Strongly varies on the scene as she usually tries to blend in with the area, she has a formal dress just in case it is ever required to wear one but feels really self-conscious in it.
