About Aramant Drakkuskail

Questions:

How much experience do you have in RPG's?
Probably something around twenty five years.

How many PbP games are you currently in? GMing?
I'm currently playing on three. I'd love to keep it under five for a maximum. Although I GMed in the past, currently I'm just playing.

Have you played, GMed or read Reign of Winter? Note that experience will not rule you out.
I never GMed or read, but played the very beginning of a game that unfortunately died.

Can you post at least once per day M-F 90% of the time?
Yes, definitely.

Would you, if requested, provide an actual email for contact if you ghost the game?
Sure, not a problem.

As there any other information you would like to share?
Please feel free to check my history of posts and past/current PbPs if you'd like to see some samples of how I post.

Do you understand that you need to track XP and other resources for yourself?
Yes - even if unusual, it wouldn't be the first PbP where I track it. I usually add it to the header of the character. Hero Lab helps me track it.

Who would you cast to play your character?
Andy Serkis - not only I think his work is great as an actor (even funny sometimes, like in Black Panther), but he could also do the motion capture later on when the shifting abilities of the character would turn him into an animal! Even if he looks quite older than Aramant (which is probably around 27), since the character uses long beard and hair (and has trails of white hair because of his heritage), with some makeup this wouldn't be an issue.

Background:

Aramant was born in the North to two Ulfen parents. With the death of his father, Patroclo, when he was still a baby, his mother - Magdalene, member of the Pathfinder Society - traveled far towards Taldan to fill the tasks of the Society, and Aramant got used to the nomadic life between the different lodges and not-too-adequate babysitters that came with it. Yet, he grew strong and agile, and it was natural for him to join the same group of his mother. He paint on his shield the heraldry of his parents - the sabertooth tiger, a proud memory of his northern ancestry - and started accompanying the group.

Patroclo was a miner on the frozen lands of the north - a dimdweller, and with a natural passion for exploration of the underground. Aramant liked a lot more the work of his mother, but to make gold in-between the missions, he adopted the same job as his father, and slowly became a proficient miner. If the months inside caves digging for iron somewhat affected his sight, every time he'd be called it was a natural bliss. The adventures of the Society were interesting and, by times, dangerous, and he appreciated it. He felt it was, again, something burning strong on his cold veins; the essence of his ancestors.

Such heritage was already quite obvious on his physique, but during an adventure - while still not even of age - Aramant was exposed to intense cold, and somehow resisted well to such. His mother had similar characteristics, but no idea where it came from. Such specialization pushed the Society to assign them to missions much closer to the lands they were originally from, and by the age of nineteen Aramant and his mother were already back on parties with skalds and other northmen. By that time, different than his mother - an arcane spellcaster - the young man assumed a more druidic role, and Gozreh guided him to become a shifter focused on the tiger of his frosty roots.

Almost a decade passed, and it was during a separate mission that Magdalene disappeared together with all the rest of her group. They were investigating some fey on the far lands of the south, near the village of Heldren - but this was all that Aramant could gather. He was working on the Taldan mines when the news arrived, but the Society didn't have more to offer in terms of information. The man then took a leave of absence and went to investigate on his own, without much information of what could be happening; And, on his path, somehow he had the impression that the cold of his northern ancestry was closer than he could ever dream...

Appearance and Behavior:

Aramant is taller than the average, although not as towering as some individuals. He's bulky but not exaggeratedly muscular - he fights more with agility, despite his solidly built fists. His skin is more on the pale side with small light blue eyes, probably reminding a British man with some viking ancestry. His hair is brown and long, and he uses equally long beard - with traces of white; despite his age (27), the frost giant heritage affects him in this matter. He usually dresses comfortable clothes over his armor, but the past travels to the north made him collect cold weather gear and furs.

He is a gentle man, fiercely loyal to his friends, but not exactly charismatic: in fact, he's more silent and contemplative. His eyes give the impression that he is wise beyond his years, and he tries to lend his thoughts every time a friend is in need of council. He misses his mother and prays to Gozreh constantly, but will immediately shy when asked about it.
