    So, as i am now a (giddy) member of this darkest roleplay community, i figured this is a good place to give more life to the characters were sporting in this grim and dark world.

    Everyone is invited to describe his characters looks, motivations and background as detailed as they wish in this thread.

    This is of course by no means a must, but i think it would massivly enrich the interaction between the characters and characterplay for the players themselves (im speaking only from personal experience, i’ve been roleplaying for about 15 years now and i noticed having a rich background makes me, at least, be more invested in the characters).

    So, happy typing^^

    Karl-Heinz von Kaltenstein
    Highwayman, male, 34 jears.

    His skin looks somewhat like weathered leather, long black, greasy hair, badly trimmed facial hair and sharp, but tired brown eyes.

    Karl-Heinz is the last son of the Kaltenstein noblefamiliy originating in the Ostmark, a land overrun by the undead and their necromancer and vampirelords. So Karl-Heinz grew up with only the knowledge of his noble heritage, his younger sister and nothing else.

    So he’s set out to train himself in the art of fighting the monsters that overran his home and earn enough coin to buy the mercenarys he needs to retake his home and rebuild his once noble family. The way so far has made Karl-Heinz bitter, sarcastic and disillusioned who seeks refuge from the terrors he fought in alcohol and behind the curtains of many a brothel.

    He feels a deep friendship to the Fighter-priest Magnus Tobrand, who came in the last second to save his life as he was about to be made what he most despises, a vampire. From that day he and Magnus travelled together to fight the monsters that lurk in the darkness. Using the opportunity to gather resources and contacts for his big day, the day he and his sister could finally return home.

    Karl-Heinz mostly wears practical, sturdy but somewhat worn down clothes. Clad in an well used coachers cloak which saw a lot of combat. When he isn’t drinking or whoring, he spents most time cleaning and maintaining his weapons which are 3 flintlockpistols, a handcrossbow and a dagger bearing his familycrest all well kept and in prime condition.

    Love the thread idea. : )

    Morgrim Kavair

    A mercenary, gladiator, hunter and warrior. Morgrim has crossed blades with people and creatures of all kinds, and his appearance is evidence of that. Decorated with trophies of scalped savages and trinkets taken from the bodies of the clans who live under the earth, it is apparent he has a fair bit of stories to tell.

    His armor was that he wore in the pits of foreign lands. Fighting off beast and man for coin and survival. Studded and spiked, decorated with a worn purple cape billowing from his waist, he is an intimidating sight.

    Though impressive, the armor is more for show than fuction, and while the studs are dangerous, the armor itself does not offer the greatest amount of protection.

    His arsenal is vast but hardly lethal. Most of thr instruments hanging from his belt were for bleeding and causing pain. He relies on his axe and his experience to land the devastating blows he needs.

    Overall an experienced killer with a checkered past. He can land blows that tear through armor and disembowel the mightiest creatures, but only after observing and careful planning.

    Magnus Tobrand
    Crusader, male, 31 years

    His face has sharp features. Shoulderlong bright brown hair and a finely groomed goatee with dark blue, sadlooking eyes.

    Magnus is an orphan who lived his youth on the streets, surviving by stealing and begging. One day got captured when he tried to sell a holy symbol of the Light to his fence and got turned over to the church. There Father Asbel had pity on the boy who was trying not to starve. He took him in lectured the boy in the ways of the Light. Having finally found someone who cares, Magnus absorbed eagerly his tutors lessons anfd became a eager follower of the Light.

    By the time he became 16 he was a fully trained and fanatic priest and warrior. Then the crusade called, and he followed, wading into bloody battle for ‘justice’, king and faith. He bore witness to many cruelties of the human soul and was forced to see crimes against humanity in the name of all that he had fought for. By the time he returned, he had changed, dispising the crusade, as he saw that the crusade was a mere excuse for kings to conquer, and mercenarys to plunder and pillage. His cause betryed by those with holiness and justice on their banners.

    He swore to his mentor to be a real crusader, feeding his steel only to blasphemers and creatures of evil beyond redemption, spreading the faith not by force, but by deed and compassion.

    One fateful day he followed a trail of foul necromancers to their hideout and interrupted a vile ritual that was supposed to turn their victim into a vampire. After he slaughtered the foul magicians he freed the prisoner, Karl-Heinz, and from that day, the 2 seemed inseperable. Karl-Heinz swore to repay his dept and Magnus tried to teach him in the ways of the Light, but to no avail. Over the time the 2 became fast friends and have been routing evil since then.

    Normaly he wears a platearmor, relying on it for protection while wielding a massive Zweihänder for offense. Always on him is his holy symbol of the Light and his book of holy scriptures. All shrouded by a tabard bearing the sign of the holy Light and a dark red cloak.

    Somewhere in the depths of page 34 of the Darkest Roleplay Hamlet page, there lies an outdated character list. This is the shiny new one!

    Anyone can join at any time! Also, if you’ve been gone from the roleplay for a while, feel free to jump back in as soon as you feel like it!

    -Characters with italicized names are characters that haven’t been active in at least 1 week. Pre 12/6, though. Kinda pressed for time nowadays. ;_; It’s okay to be inactive! Sometimes things come up, that’s fine.
    -Characters that have been crossed out are officially not in the roleplay anymore. This will only happen the person who has the character specifically states that they are not in the roleplay anymore for whatever reason
    -Names in glorious bold belong to characters that have a character sheet
    -If your character is not on here, or if the information is incorrect, let me know and I’ll fix it right away omg there are so many characters please don’t yell at me
    I update this as we go on so I usually try to stay on top of this.psyche!
    -If the character class has a (?) next to it, that means that it’s my best guess at what their hero class is.

    Update: Oh god I totally underestimated the amount of characters that would be in this RP. Not that the amount’s a bad thing! It just makes the character list a lot more difficult to maintain. I’ll try to keep this relevant, but there’s a lot of missing info and it’s not always accurate so… use at your own risk, I guess?

    That definitely makes it easier to find! Oh, and Cugey has a last name now! Cugey Noyes.

    Cugey Noyes
    Age- 18
    Class- Highwayman

    Appearance- Rather different from the game’s actually Highwayman. Somewhat pale and easy to bruise skin, soft features, big deep blue eyes, wild black hair, and a rather thin body.
    His clothes consist of a dark blue coat, brown pants, a white dress shirt, boots, and his red scarf(a gift from his parents). (some sketches I did of him:http://www.archives.darkestdungeon.com/topic/cugey-the-highwayman/)

    (Some of my characters have things about them that I want to keep secret and then reveal in the RP. ^-^)

    The son of a former highwayman and a landlord’s daughter, Cugey had a decent upbringing. Growing up in the care of his mother, father, and their doting families. He was given a fine education where he excelled in his studies.

    However, he was naturally very shy and timid which made it easy for people to pick on him. Cugey then decided to become a highwayman like his fearless father used to be, joining a gang of robbers in his town. He began a double life that was hidden from everyone he knew, even his own parents. Though he continually felt a nagging feeling that he made the wrong choice.

    One night, that feeling was confirmed when his mates *SPOILER*. They then forced him to *SPOLIER*. Horrified and disgusted with himself, Cugey wanted to confess to what he did. However, his mates threatened to “silence” him if he told.

    With no choice left, Cugey left town without a trace. But he hopes to someday return and take responsibility for his actions without the possibility of losing his life.

    Other Facts
    -his voice sounds like Roxas’ from the Kingdom Hearts games: http://youtu.be/G6Lc5sOf7vs (Roxas is the blond character)
    -has a pollen allergy, but ironically loves flowers
    -is a pretty good cook
    -has a pet rabbit named Tulip
    -has a few nervous habits(lip biting, fiddling with objects)
    – is demiromantic(can only fall in love with someone after developing an emotional bond with them) and asexual(not interested in sex)
    -is half English on his father’s side and half Japanese on his mother’s side
    -fluent in Japanese and can write in it too

    (short story I wrote for him:http://www.archives.darkestdungeon.com/topic/only-way-out/)

    Note: There are some references to Alfred Noyes’ “The Highwayman” in his story. One, his last name being Noyes like the author. Two, his parents are a(former) highwayman and a landlord’s daughter, the main characters of the poem.

    I know I’m going to create a second character at some point. He sounds really cool in my head, but we’ll have to wait and see.
