16. What kind of story does your character belong in?
Faces a lot of conflicts of morality, driven by greed and hunger, influenced by different outsiders to their ends, often taking gambles.
Intrigue, detective stories, mysteries, but also hard conflict are her thing.

17. What role does your character fill?
Skills & Knowledge, melee and ranged, traps.

18. What should the other players know about your character?
Veda is a slightly different colored elf, suffering racial profiling and prejudice, which she seeks to overcome.
She can be quite the prick and has selfish tendencies, buried in her past.
Once befriended and her trust is won, she is pretty supportive though and surprises with lots of knowledge, good stories and the occasional supportive heal.

19. What is your play style?
Cooperative and team oriented, prefering good character and story immersion, more frequent interactive posts over lots of only GM oriented posts or self centered short stories. Gameplay should be challenging, but not impossible to solve^^

20. How do you want your character to die? Heroic of course, driven by their own momentum, leaving a print on Golarion, so others will sing about it.
