edit: since the Dog said that we could have 250 words, I'm re-submitting the original.

_____________________________________________________________________

Veluthil comes from a common Elven family. He has had three things going for him his whole life – being stunningly beautiful, being highly charismatic and well-liked, and having both a skill and a fondness for disguise and acting. He has had two personality pitfalls – a love of money, and a love of the excitement of a risky challenge. He left home early, and took up with a crowd of genteel and talented gamblers and whoremongerers. A young and rash scheme to cheat a very high class gaming establishment left a young Veluthil, under the alias of “Rodney,” a fugitive from the shady and powerful owners of the establishment he tried to cheat. Veluthil has taken on different appearances and personas in an attempt to evade his enemies and the bounty hunters in their employ. They have cracked a handful of his disguises and aliases, but not the one he is currently employing. In the intervening time he has become proficient in standard theft as well as running confidence games. His latest persona is a young, seductive female adventurer named Claudia. Only people who knew him in his adolescence know his true name and identity, and even they would be hard pressed to casually recognize him.

It was nicer before I had to pare it down :P

This is a character I created for the D&D game Domo-Kun ran a few years back. You can actually read the original, uncut bio here. Also, "Claudia" has her own backstory.

I created this character for the express purpose of Crying Game-ing you, you know. And then you didn't play, and I had to Crying Game Tim :P

Wow, that's a lot of detail for a DnD character. Do you always put so much thought into them?

He is a very intriguing character.

I wish there was a way Icy and I could play D and D. :( Unfortunately my internet connection is too jacked up to allow a normal IM conversation.

Thank you :)

This is pretty typical for one of my characters pre-gameplay. By the time we've played for awhile, I've added more backstory, personality quirks, more details on how they look or how they act, etc. After a couple of campaigns, you might as well just call them a split personality... like this :lol: Characters I can do, it's situations I struggle with.

A likely excuse. I'm sure you're too scared of what I'd do to you :lol:

I'm so much like this character, I feel like litigation is in order. It's a clear case of plagiarism. Prepare to be served. By legal papers. And my arrogant obnoxiousness.

Wanna play dress-up together?

lol! Frankly, I do not like the name "Veluthil" for this character. It's either Claudia or Rodney. But you can't have an Elf named "Rodney"...
