He has a faintly protruding nose, more like slits. Is a vegetarian since his body cannot digest meat. Has three rows of sharp, triangular teeth in his mouth.

Clothing worn in threads :

This is the clothing worn in his threads:


Baylin can always be seen wearing a black linen short sleeve shirt, black linen pants, linen undergarments, and no shoes. In threads where he is not in water or on a beach, then he will be wearing simple black boots.

Over his shirt Baylin wears stiffened kelp light armor; Somewhat tougher than soft kelp and woven in thicker layers, this armor offers more protection at some cost in comfort and mobility. It is dark emerald green and is often decorated with small, brightly-colored mollusks that cling to the armor. The treatment process prevents them from digesting it. Most likely found in use by aquatic cultures.

Over the armor, he wears a Body Pack; This items consists of what looks like a padded body harness, crossing the chest, circling the waist and covering the back with a flat thin pack. The pack can store approximately 15 pounds of goods in a watertight containment.

And over top the pack is his where he keeps his trident.

Being a Charodae, he is able to withstand frigid underwater temperatures with little problem, he will however wear a hooded cloak over his armor should he feel the need to be innocuous. So unless it is stated that he is wearing it, you can assume that he is not.



Character Concept


For most of his life, Baylin was basically a good person...

Image
His initial involvements with magic were innocuous, but it became increasingly addictive to the charodae. Throughout his arcane practice, Bay'Lin lived his life through the dogma of a Voider, that every truth is empty. And all things are inherently absent of meaning. Bay'Lin had come to believe that life was absent of morality and that its continued existence was hollow in the grand scheme of things. He does not view the world with his eyes, but by what he can touch with his own will because the only real truth is what he experiences.

But despite how he sees the void, Baylin is still a living and breathing person.

There are a few things that can make him happy. Like many Charodae, he enjoys collecting small items, bits-n-bobbles, and random objects from adventures to build up his own sentimental 'horde' of personal treasure. To receive one as a gift from Baylin is a sign of his paramount trust in someone. Likewise, to steal one would call forth his immediate Ire. While collecting objects is a hobby he also loves seahorses, and debates relating to: philosophy and magic.

When conflict arises, Baylin believes that killing is neither inherently right or wrong. He will question if conflict is worth the time and effort to remove someones existence from reality, then act accordingly. But he is not a pacifist. He will use violence if he believes that it is the only way to continue his personal existence.


Character History


History :
Childhood
    Bay Lin La was hatched among the 'Ae'loru' in Charbosi within a mass coral pouch of eggs. He was raised by Day'len La, an artist a coral sculptor. His mother was an underwater dancer and musician named Nula. He was cared for lovingly by his family as the six other siblings who hatched with him grew up to be his younger brothers and sisters.

    May'lin, Ha'lasa, and Talaya were his sisters, while Ye'lan and Tan'ath became his his little brothers. Despite the fact that they were all hatched at the same time, he was born into the role of the eldest sibling by being the most responsible child when they were children.

    Baylin's childhood was a relatively peaceful one. He attend school like all children do to learn how to manipulate coral, study herbs, language of common, aquaculture, botany , history, and basic math. He was a well mannered boy who studied hard, although spent much of his free time doing one of the two hobbies he loved: Seahorse riding and playing music on the violin his mother gave him. At the age of fifteen when Baylin was deemed knowledgeable by his teachers to end his schooling, he talked to his parents about venturing out on his own.

Knowing the Void

    During his journey from Lhavit to wind reach, he learned the philosophies of voiding from a human mage who held the magonym name of "Enidriv".

    The mage sailed ocean from wind reach suvan searching for special bones to use for Malediction. Baylin aided the mage in collecting several items from under the sea one fateful day, but was betrayed by Enidriv when the mage wished to harvest his body part. Baylin fended of the mage off by tackling him into the ocean, trying to drown him. Enidriv agreed to stand down if Baylin spared him and although cautious of another betrayal, he let the man go.

    To ease their tensions, they had a long conversation about magic. Baylin grew intrigued about the mage's philosophy on the topic the void, wondering how anyone could believe that life could be so empty. It was a foreign concept to the naive pacifistic young Baylin. Their conversation was long, detailed, and confusing;. Enidriv simply guided the Charoda towards the art of voiding, the man gifting the knowledge but was no mentor.

    Once Baylin grasped the general concept of Voiding the mage sailed away.

    Voiding was incredibly difficult for the typically social Charoda. It was difficult for him to grasp the difference between loneliness and solitude as he wandered while thinking about absolute emptiness. During many long nights Baylin remained alone while floating atop the ocean surface. His eyes gazing out into the empty night sky. He grew to understood that solitude was self-awareness; and with that he began to think about nothingness.

    Baylin began to believe that It was impossible to distinguish 'existence' from 'non-existence', and thus the concept of reality had no meaning; or in other words, absolute emptiness, his own word were hollow in the grand scheme of things. After using his djed to cast nothingness into the air above him, he summoned his first void portal the size of a small grape.

    Bits and bobbles of Baylin's Horde.

  • Driftwood Necklace: A horse-shaped piece of wood, carved from the hull of a small crashed ship. It hangs on a small green chord made of select, strong, wrapped seaweed fibers. It's not worth much, but the previous owner was still rather fussy about parting with it.

    Oxidized Copper Ring: A dark-green ring made of copper, previously a glowing yellow, the water has taken its tole on the metal. It was too big for the young Charoda who handed it over to Baylin, so he wore it on a small rope around his neck. Fortunately, it seems to be just the right size for its new owner's finger.

    Various Shells: A random collection of oddly colored or shaped shells. Given to Baylin by those who had nothing else of value to part with.


Heirloom: Mother's Violin: Passed down from his grandfather, to his mother, and then him. The fiddle was crafted in Charbosi, and as such is made from hardened Kelp and coral; materials that can withstand water, and has a dark green tint. Its bow hair and strings are made from animal sinew.

Baylin

Postby Bay'Lin La on December 1st, 2013, 3:01 pm

PC relationships, NPCs, & Animal Companions


ImageSpieces: Seahorse
Name: Allsi
Gender: Female
Special Abilities: Seahorses have natural camouflage abilities that they can extend to their riders. For example, in a bed of kelp they can transform colors to match that exact shade and hence blend in. Their camouflage effects their riders as well, often tinting their skin a match color so long as they are in physical contact with the Seahorse. If they wish, they can change colors to match almost anything - coral, anemones, the sand of the seafloor.

Additional Information: In the Charodae language, Char, the seahorses name is sung elegantly underwater as Anyalsi. She is Baylin's Underwater mount. By default the horse tends to take a golden yellow color when not actively camouflaging herself. When above ground he simple refers to her as Allsi.


ImageCharacter Name: May'lin
Race: Charoda
Age: Thirty six
Relationship: Younger Sister
NPC Type: Traveling Companion
Skills: Singing :5, Dancing :5, Weaving :5, Carving :5
Aquiculture :5, Acrobatics: 5

Information:

May'lin was born in Charbosi within a coral pouch as one among six hatch'lings. Even though they were all hatched at the same time she quickly became known as the youngest child and sister to her eldest brother Baylin. May had a fairly normal childhood for a Charoda playing within Charbosi and the waters around the city with her siblings. Even though she was a kind, soft spoken, and loving soul. She enjoyed tagging along with Baylin when he set off on his own trips that often led her following him into grand mischievous adventures, or at least what seemed like grand adventures to children.

Not all of the adventures that she had wandered into ere lovely and nice, she also saw things that proved why the sea was willing to remain distant from the surface. During her visits to the world above the waters with Baylin , finding herself terrified by so many things and grew to learn of Myrian savagery first and seeking refuge under the sea. She follows her brother around out of hope that she would keep him safe. She has seen his obsession with the void grow and hopes to anchor him to the “family unit” less she lose him to his empty and lonely madness.
