#1
Player: Maarten777

Character Full Name: Ophelia Blacktear

Other: She has three pets. Kaeden, a dark blue wind serpent. Rima, a lynx and Sam a worg.

Personality: Ophelia can be friendly to those she likes. She is easily offended and quite overconfident of herself. She has a love for her animals almost the equivalent of an actual mother. She is usually just looking for fun which gets her in quite the trouble sometimes, leading up to wounds from time to time. She can be naïve from time to time. She is usually neutral to people. She is stubborn and has trouble learning anything. Ophelia hates the fact that her kin turned against the humans, especially knowing how kind humans can be. The now undead humans, the Forsaken, are seen as the next best thing to humans by Ophelia as long as they're not busy with trying to destroy all living.


History: Ophelia was born away from Silvermoon to poor parents, her mother perished giving birth and her father turned to alcohol to deal with his wife's loss. She never got a real name. A neighbour came to their house to check on the new parents, or so he expected. Instead he found the young girl being neglected by her drunk father. Her father shouted at the neighbour to get out but the man did not leave. After a short struggle he took the child with him and left the drunk father alone in his misery. Alas, he couldn't raise her either, having three children of his own and she ended up in an orphanage. Here she was raised until the age of three when she was adopted by an unlikely new mother, a human, barely the age of thirty. This woman named the young Elf after her own mother, Ophelia.

When she turned sixteen her 'mother' finally allowed her to practice with the bow and a set of blades. Her new mother always kept a close eye on her. Ophelia became skilled with her blades but her skill with the bow was always lacking. In frustration she bought a rifle from that little coin she made. She returned with it to her 'mother' and at first, she refused to let Ophelia practice with the weapon. After a discussion with her 'mother', she finally let Ophelia train with the weapon.

At the age of fifty she became highly accurate with her rifle against stationary targets but she was unable to hit a moving target even after several years. At the age of 55 she was finally able to hit a moving target but not in a way that would leave a big wound or death. She also kept practicing how to disassemble and reassemble her rifle within a matter of minutes, being able to replace most parts of it should a part break. She kept practicing with her rifle to be able to hit moving targets. As Ophelia kept training, her 'mother' grew older and older and when Ophelia was fifty-two, her 'mother' passed away at the age of seventy-three. Ophelia mourned her loss for half a year, now all alone for the first time in her life. All friends she made during her youth died or moved on and she was still a child.

She sold her 'mother's' house and left to Silvermoon, trying to start a life with her own kin. Each time she told someone she was raised by a human, the common folk would frown upon her. Due to the tensions between the elves and the humans this is most likely the reason for that.

She tried over and over again but each time she told people she was raised by a human, there was this vibe of hostility towards her and a lot of times they turned their back on her. Ophelia eventually ran from Silvermoon and into the wild. Only the occasional traveller came by to talk to her and her entire life from now on was living of the hunt. Once the First War started, Ophelia heard of it and ignored it, only wondering what Orcs were or where they came from. Years later she once more learnt of another year between Orcs and humans, this time she was closer to the War, actually observing a lot of it. The Orcs fought with savagery and honor the likes she had never seen before and Ophelia was impressed.

Ophelia returned to Silvermoon after the war's end but this time, she never mentioned who raised her or where. In Silvermoon she found someone to help her with her rifle aiming and even her bow. During one of their training trips she found a lynx, young and without anyone around to protect her. She took the little lynx in and trained with her, becoming quite the team.

When the Scourge attacked, Ophelia was quite the skilled markwoman and beast master. She observed the undead approaching and knew it was not worth to fight and risk her life so she ran away. She ran until she found a place for her and Rima to stay. Here they helped with the defense and the gathering of food, leaving Ophelia wounded every so often. After surviving for quite some time they fled on a boat towards Kalimdor where an army of the Alliance set up camp. She helped with the defense and sometimes helped on the improvised farms.

During one of her scout/defense trips in the barrens she found a small, wounded worg and took him in, raising him back to full health and naming him Sam. After the war she returned home again, finding her Silvermoon in ruin. With help of other survivors she managed to rebuild again.

As all members of the Elven race she suffered from her addiction. Out of options she did what the rest of her kind did and turned to the fel. She rejoined her brothers and sisters and started naming herself a blood elf as well.

Once she learned of the Elves joining the Horde, Ophelia left Silvermoon in the hopes to be allowed into Stormwind to prove not all Elves hate the humans. Alas, when she arrived, she was greeted with swords and racism. Devastated by this sudden hate for her kin, especially from a race that had proven itself caring and nice to her, she turned away from Alliance lands and returned to Silvermoon.

During one of her “I am bored, I want some action” moments she left home with nothing but her leather suit, her rifle and her blades. She returned to Kalimdor and managed to find a dark blue wind serpent. She managed to tame him after a fight, including a bite, poisoning her. At first Rima, Sam and Kaeden couldn’t be in the same room together but after a while they learned to accept and eventually protect each other should the need arise. She trained her pets for several years, they usually listen to any commands she gives them and usually just treats them as friends.

The Cataclysm eventually happened. She remained unaffected by any of the actions but felt sorry for the people she grew up with, living near the heart of Deathwing's initial strike. Unable to do anything about it, she shrugged it off and continued her life.

A tragic story of an elf outliving their loved ones, but I must ask: how does she feel about her people being against humanity now? Or to the now-undead human Forsaken?

Ah, what I meant was to implement that into her story, but that's my bad. I'll toss an initial just in case another FH wants to chime in!

Initial approval!

Added a paragraph to add to what Cappn meant.

Seems alright, lore-wise.

A Blood Elf that regrets removal from the Alliance is somewhat unusual, but her adoptive mother certainly justifies it. I also like that you gave her plenty of misgivings in her personality - they allow for interesting RP.

Approved!
