Background:
Andrei was the son of two simple human farmers. While they did not lack for food, they did not have much in the way of money, so they lived a very simple, hand-to-mouth lifestyle. This suited Andrei fine, as he was a very active, friendly young boy who spent his days playing with others. It was not until a horrific wasting disease swept through the countryside where they lived that Andrei's picturesque childhood ended. Taking his parents, their livestock and most of the people of the area, the aasimar boy was left homeless and destitute.

In order to survive, he began to do odd jobs in the nearest city, everything from shining boots to cleaning latrines. He was personable, and he worked hard in each of the tasks he was given. When he was finally old enough to handle himself in a fight, he joined a mercenary corp and never looked back.

Andrei's aasimar heritage is rather difficult to detect in most situations. His silver hair is just considered uncommon, and the characteristic reflection of his semi-metallic chest is usually hidden by his clothing. It was not until a passing priest mentioned it to the mercenary that he even considered he was not human. It made little difference, anyway, as he kept to his life as a soldier for hire. Now, after his prophetic dream, he sharpens his blade and waits for what he believes is now his true calling.

Physical Description:
Andrei is a tall, handsome, and well-built man. His neatly-maintained hair and beard are of a vibrant silver color that is rather unusual on a man of his age. His steel blue eyes are cold and piercing, but his feeling clearly show in them. His celestial heritage shows only slightly, as sometimes his tan skin will catch the light in such a way as to appear slightly metallic and reflective.

He tends to wear warm leather and chain armor, or simple clothing in dark colors. He always wears a spiked leather glove on his left hand, and has his sword sheathed at his left hip.

Portrait of Andrei.

Personality:
Andrei is a friendly, boisterous fellow. His time working as a mercenary has made him quite adept at getting along with others, but it has also made him more prone to deal with disputes with threats, rather than diplomacy. While he will do most mercenary work for coin, his true loyalty is not so easily won. Those who do earn his respect and faith will see that he is a trustworthy and capable companion.

Andrei can be quite hotheaded, and his short temper can quite easily get the better of him. Some might even say he behaves more like a tiefling than an aasimar, but no one would dare say that to his face.

Interview in a Dream:

Woman in a Dream wrote:
"So, why should I choose you?"

Grinning, the muscular Aasimar stands with his hands on his hips. "My arms are strong, my feet agile, my blade sharp. If it's muscle that you need, I'll provide it. I am trustworthy, honorable, and when I take up a cause, I see it to the end. If I gotta bloody my hands in your service, and to serve the greater good, I will do it without a second thought." He nods deeply, not an ounce of uncertainty in his voice.

Woman in a Dream wrote:
"What have you done with your life so far?"

"I have gone where coin and combat have taken me," Andrei speaks, smiling calmly. "Since I was but a boy, I have done what I needed to, to stay alive. My parents died of disease, and I had to take care of myself. It wasn't pretty, but I managed. As soon as I could lift a sword, that was what I did," the silver-haired man states, looking wistful.

"I lived by my wits. I took what I needed from those who had taken it from others. I fought, and I killed men. Some of those men had no reason to be there, to die for a cause they didn't care about. But you gotta do what you gotta do. I wouldn't be here, otherwise." Andrei looks at the floor beneath his feet sadly. "I don't regret it, though. A mercenary's lifetime has left me the skills to do everything and anything that I gotta, no matter how it weighs on my conscience," he says while looking up, his eyes clear, but full of frustration. "But that don't make it any easier for me to sleep at night," Andrei finishes, a sad smile playing on his lips.

Woman in a Dream wrote:
"What talents can you bring to the cause of good?"

Andrei returns to his normal businesslike demeanor at the question, answering, "I will do anything and everything necessary for your cause. I don't kill men in their beds, I cut them down on the field, where they struggle for men who would bring evil upon the world, if not for me and my kind." He starts grinning again, crossing his arms across his chest. "I could, but I don't," he says with a smirk. "Other than my ability to fight, I have numerous other skills, and they would all be at your disposal."

Woman in a Dream wrote:
"And, most of all, how do I know I can trust you with this mission?"

Andrei's grin becomes slightly playful, as he says, "Haven't proven unloyal to anyone yet, and my word is much stronger than any of the coin they've given me." He chuckles lightly, resting a hand on the pommel of his blade. "I will sooner die than break my word, but if you're lookin' for more than just my word, then, sadly, that's all I got."
