Hahahaha.. Listening to the Assassins creed IV soundtrack while reading this Bio. His appearance is quite detailed and I do have a picture in my head on what he looks like. I find it interesting that you put his rumors down and that really makes me think on which ones are fake and which ones are real. I mean they might seem pretty obvious but I could be wrong.

I think of your Character Bio as "short and sweet." Not too detailed, but well written. So with that being said you earned my like

P.S. congrats on your 100th like :)

Thank you, if you PM me your guesses on the rumors I'll tell you if they are true or not...

A few things:

1. Never ever say your character is a master or expert at anything. In-game all characters will start off with novice-apprentice skills so it would be rather awkward running into this char that has a bio that says he's an uber-powerful destruction mage yet can only cast the basics.

2. Don't say noble and ancient house. I can guarantee you that in-game you could boast of the name of that house all you want and no one would bat an eye. If it was noble and ancient you'd think people would've heard about it and that it would be mentioned in Tamriel's history.

3. Don't you dare try and imitate an AC char. No one like those kind of chars and your char is currently shaping up to be more than a bit like Edward Kenway.

I don't know about Hob but I can't really picture this char in my head very well.

1. I'll change those.

2. This is an RP character only (for now) and I can say that the House has "faded" in power the last few generations. I also never said that the House was powerful or significant.

3. I am not trying to imitate an AC character. I said that he has a hood similar to them, which is due to his family's crest. That is not imitating one, it just seemed like the best way to describe it. How does this seem like Edward Kenway?

Thank you though, that is why this is a W.I.P, which is a Work In Progress.

"Noble and ancient" implies powerful and significant, otherwise it would just be called "house..." with no title.

It sure looks like you're trying to imitate an AC character. His robes overall seem similar to that of one of the AC protagonists not to mention the huge knives-in-sleeves give away. A huge AC protagonist characteristic. He really just sounds like any AC protagonist (except the character from liberations) but he sounds a bit more like Edward because you mention a dead wife which is a trait that Edward has.

They are an old house and they are nobles, hence the name "The Noble and Ancient House of Velaion".

I did not realize those similarities, but now I see where you are coming from. The reasons he has a dead wife, which I forgot about Edward having, are because I did not want him to have a family and wanted to give him something different than most RP characters that I know of. I suppose I could change the are the daggers are but that seemed like the best place to me, due to ease with which they can be reached and that they are also semi-hidden.
