Tibalan of the Earthhand [Tauren Civilian]
Player: imagenashyun

Character Full Name: Tibalan of the Earthhand

Character In-Game Name: Tibalan

Nickname(s): Tib, Tibby, Tibs, Jerry (?)

Association(s): Thunder Bluff, The Earthhand Clan

Race: Tauren

Class: Civilian (OOC Warrior)

Skills and Abilities: After dropping out of his shaman studies and quitting druidism before his training ever really started, Tibalan has very little skill in regards to either except for knowledge of what is commonly known among his people. Since then, Tibalan has taken up the rifle and began focusing his skills in ranged or otherwise unarmed combat--he can wrestle, box, and grapple. These skills, however, are self-taught and too unrefined to consider Tibalan a true warrior.

Besides these, Tibalan has talents lying in culinary arts. He can cook many recipes not typical among the Tauren, and among the things he enjoys is baking. In addition, he is an artist. His skills lie in Shu'halo tapestry and totemic imagery, and he also excels in charcoal-based portraiture. At times Tibalan would combine both, going into storytelling through his woven and drawn arts.

Age: 30

Sex: Male

Hair: Soft, short chestnut-brown fur with a dark brown mane and head hair braided into two long queues on the sides of his head.

Eyes: Brown

Weight: 550 lbs

Height: 8'2"

Usual Garments/Armor: A gray hat on his head and feathers attached to the ends of his queues. He wears a large, woven poncho over his shoulders and typical Shu'halo clothing underneath. He has a ring piercing between his nostrils and another hanging from his right ear.

Other: Tibalan's body shape slightly differs from his in-game model in that he has bigger, doe-like eyes and a large gut. In his native language, he is a very slow speaker as is, but when speaking Orcish, he tends to speak very slow, broken sentences where he has problems linking his subjects to their verbs. His Common is far worse, barely able to form complete thoughts.

Alignment: Lawful Good

Personality: Tibalan seems to be a typical Tauren... except in ways when he is not. Like most of his people, he is peaceful, mild-mannered, soft-spoken, in harmony with the earth and nature around him, and unwilling to resort to war. Unlike others, he is very painfully shy--in his clan, he is known to be the family "shrinking violet", often hiding (and failing) under or behind his hat whenever he is approached by strangers. This is due to a long history of bullying and enforced compliance and obedience, resulting in a very meek, sheepish man.

In spite of this, Tibalan possesses a less restrained pre-disposition to violence, especially when he is angry. When first approached, Tibalan seems weak, but once he is appropriately angered, Tibalan shows himself to be vicious and even Tauren-inappropriately brutal. Tibalan is aware of this, and thus, he tries to keep himself in constant mental watch. This then added to his already lowered self-esteem, becoming very self-aware, conscientious with himself, and lacking in self-efficacy and confidence in himself as a person.

History: Tibalan was born in the Earthhand Clan, a clan of primarily made up of shamans, druids, and occasional hunters. His parents, druid father Karabow and shamaness mother Vakah, were the elders and patriarchs, giving the immediate family relational prestige among their clan. In spite of this, Tibalan was bullied by his older cousins, mostly due to his unusually slow speech pattern that suggested stupidity. Adding his history of bullying to his mother being very overbearing and demanding to her only son out of several daughters, Tibalan grew up being overly compliant and docile towards everyone around him.

When Tibalan turned 16, he attempted to break out of his shell by taking up shamanism, beginning his studies early with his mother as his mentor. This did not go well, however--her domineering attitudes towards her son only caused great stress onto the young calf, and after only two years of studying shamanism he had a mental breakdown that debilitated him. His father, feeling sympathetic, suggested Tibalan druidism wherein he will be the one to mentor him. Feeling that druidism was more a calling for him wherein he'd connect with nature more than the elements, Tib followed his father for a few years. This too, however, did not last long. By the time Tibalan turned 23, Karabow was killed by marauding centaurs one day as the Earthhand was travelling through the plains. Tib tried to continue druidism without him but abandoned this path after another two years. His inability to stay track in one path earned the ire from his mother and distaste from the rest of the Clan, ostracizing him further.

The Earthhands continued to roam as a clan until the establishment of Thunder Bluff, where many tribes and other clans gave up their nomadic ways and settled down. Due to the clan's struggling with the gathering of resources since Karabow's death, Vakah decided upon having the Earthhands settle as well... but she, and others of the clan, felt only repugnance towards their Horde allies. Tibalan, nonetheless, decided to try to make some friends, finding some fascination with the orcs and trolls, and then the Forsaken, when they would visit Thunder Bluff. However, seeing how culturally different the other Horde races are, Tibalan continued to withdraw, staying with his family and devoting time just hunting and assisting in the clan's survival.

Tibalan stayed in Thunder Bluff until roughly a few months ago, when he moved out and built his own home in Bloodhoof Village as an attempt to start his own life. He would be only a few days of travelling from the Barrens and Ratchet, where he would more attempts in interacting with other members of the Horde. Recently he found a job in a faction-neutral business, "The Love Exchange", where he would also have access to people of the Alliance, whom he never had any hostility towards in the first place. Nowadays, he hopes to find some friends and perhaps some love and companionship, as well as strength as he learns to stand up to those who would try to beat him down again.
