In a land with odd creatures and evil rulers. Unusual scenery and crazed characters. Mysteries unsolved and places undiscovered. Where will you stand?

When the five, once peaceful, Kingdoms-Diamond, Ruby, Sapphire, Amethyst, and Emerald Kingdoms-of Aetherynn break out in war all appears hopeless. The evil King Varlenx of Diamond Kingdom, the leading Kingdom, has taken over and has sent the Kingdoms into mayhem. Now it seems as though all is lost.

This world is very loosely inspired by Alice in Wonderland as well as a fairytale-type place, so keep that in mind with the places and people during Roleplaying.

PostSubject: Claudius of the Faith of the Perfectly Flat Stone   Tue Aug 10, 2010 10:00 pm

(Mmm... I'm suffering from mild writer's block, so the writing 'prolly isn't up to par. But I think this character might be fun to play.)

Name- Claudius of the Faith of the Perfectly Flat Stone

Nickname- Claudius gets very upset when someone neglects to include his full title, nearly furious when someone replaces “Stone” with “Rock”, and simply outraged when someone tries to shorten his name to “Claud”, “Claus”, or the oh-so-hilarious-‘cause-he’s-a-gecko-with-(geddit?)-claws, “Claw”.

Gender- Male

Age- Claudius is two years old, a rather young gecko verging on his prime.

Race- As there is a decided lack of naturalists in any of the kingdoms, Claudius is of a certain species of gecko which is referred to by the natives as “good eating”, and is best when fried and served with some cactus which is, oddly enough, also called “good eating”.

Home Kingdom- Diamond Kingdom

Side- None, assumed neutral, though perhaps that may be open to change.

Profession- Traveling monk of the Faith of the Perfectly Flat Stone.

Kin- None known.

Personality- Claudius is a rather good natured fellow, a bit snobbish at times but generally peaceful and a bit naïve. Claudius is rather patient, though when he angered he tends to react as any lizard monk would- by screeching and violently quoting the sacred writings at the offender. Despite his claims that other’s opinions of his do not concern him in the least, he often tries a bit too hard to appear wise and knowledgeable. In his eagerness to contribute and bring peace, he often ignores common sense to throw himself between arguing parties, often quoting appropriate passages from the sacred writings and even flipping onto his back to strum his guitar-like instrument if things seem a bit heated.

History- The deserts of the Diamond Kingdom are odd places, drier than any other place in Aetherynn, and almost as full of odd things as the Amethyst kingdom. Near the heart of one of these deserts is a stone. Not a very interesting one, though it is perfectly, amazingly flat. It’s nothing short of miraculous how flat it is, and apparently resistant to any weathering the desert forces upon it. The geckos that live around this stone have for long regarded this stone with awe, and believe that there is where the gods are closest to the earth. Only the truest can safely sit upon its surface, brought hot enough to boil water by the desert sun, and become completely enlightened. Nests were only meant to hold two eggs- any extras were claimed by the Faith to be brought up as monks. Claudius first learned human glyphs by reading the sacred Inscriptions carved into the sides of the Perfectly Flat Stone, and so went on to become scandalously great at an odd instrument made out of dried cactus, and so was deemed, at two years old, ready to go out into the world to learn the ways of the land.

Weapon(s)- Weapons are instrument of evil! Claudius does carry an odd musical instrument, which resembles a guitar but resembles a dried miniature variation of a cactus that grows near the Perfectly Flat Stone. It is traditionally played by flipping over onto your back and holding the body of the instrument with your hind legs, pressing down on the frets with your foreclaws and strumming with your tail. Claudius is surprisingly good at playing it, and it makes a fine accompaniment to some of his favorite hymns, which involve lizard-like chirps and squeaks more than human words.

Appearance- (Pic hopefully coming soon.) Claudius is a handsome little lizard about the size of your hand, a sort of sand color with faint stripes across his back. Two “crests” run from over his eyes to his tail. His legs are rather short, with four toes each and small but sharp claws. Claudius has a rather hard time expressing emotion on his features, and he has a transparent scale that serves a better job than an eyelid for keeping his eyes moist, leaving him always appearing to stare. Both of his eyes are large, round and red, and his slitted eyes give him a somewhat surprised appearance.

Very interesting character! I think 'Claud' (Hehe Wink ) will make quite an interesting addition to Aetherynn!
