1.0 Character

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Race: Human
Gender: Male
Whereabouts: Lhavit
Profession: Spiritist

Age: 33
Birthday: 50th Fall
Year of Birth: 482
Birthplace: Syliras
 
Appearance
.
Boo is 6'1 in height and weighs 182 pounds. He has dark brown eyes and dark brown hair. His hair is somewhat wavy. He likes to have it well kept and relatively short. Perhaps his most prominent features are his arched eyebrows.

In a flowing red dress, Elsa is every ounce of beauty that can possibly be stuffed into a single entity. Despite her mesmerizing looks, she keeps herself obscured with a large fancy hat, the same scarlet as the rest of her ensemble. What can be seen is a small mouth with thin lips, the corners turned in the beginnings of a smirk.

The entourage is completed by Harold, a unique and unknown breed of chicken whose most obvious characteristic is being blue!

Concept
.
It's easy to divide Boo into two halves. The first is normal, everyday Boo, which in fact is anything but normal. Eccentric? Maybe. Strange? Likely. A slightly obscured and unorthodox outlook on everyday life and everything that it encompasses? Absolutely. Past tragic events, a borderline sociopath for an uncle, years and years of deranged ghosts and desperate spirits, and any amount of time spent in Alvadas whatsoever will do that to a man.

That Boo has held on this long is a petching amazement.

Well done sir.

The second half however comes in complete contrast to the first. As a spiritist of good intent, Boo's work with ghosts has always come accompanied with reverence and a sense of honor. He follows his uncle in being a stalwart agent of redemption and conclusion for those poor lost souls.

Nothing is more important to him.

 
An Explanation
.
Ordinarily, one might balk at the suggestion of an exquisite woman and a magnificent blue chicken as traditional traveling companions. Lucky or not for Boo - depending on how you view such matters - only he can see, hear and converse with them. It's all in his head. Shame for others then, since Elsa has a lot to say and is refreshingly never afraid to speak her mind. Harold meanwhile... Well, Harold is Harold; though it has occurred to Boo that the chicken may only be domesticated fowl in form alone.

Unperturbed by the apparent frailty of his mental state and always the optimist, Boo maintains this has probably happened for good reason, a reason that eludes him for now, but is likely out there somewhere. All in good time. Until then he continues to try and lead a good life, even if that means dragging Elsa and Harold along kicking and screaming.

A noble pursuit perhaps. But then, having spent most his life dealing with tormented souls and angry ghosts, just what a good life constitutes these days, Boo is not entirely sure. But he will figure it out.

Probably.

History

Postby Boo Beckett on February 11th, 2016, 6:00 am


2.0 History

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 
History
.
Boo spent the first fifteen years of life in the bland and monotonous city of Syliras, surrounded by uptight knights ensuring everyone behaved themselves. But then his father was killed in a freak accident involving a donkey and a cart of fresh fruit, while his mother, stricken with grief, managed one more year before choosing to join her husband by way of suicide. Not completely devoid of parental duty, she had at least arranged for her brother Varin to take charge of her son.

Varin was a traveling mage by trade, specializing in spiritism. His dealings with the dead kept him on the road for the most part, a fact that did not change with the addition of a snotty nosed nephew to care for. So it was then that Syliras became a memory behind them, the door of that chapter of Boo's life slamming firmly shut. Good riddance Syliras!

For the next fourteen years or so, the two divided their time between crazy Alvadas, beautiful Riverfall and downright creepy Black Rock, Boo picking up a little Fratava along the way from the Svefra sailors whom they traveled with frequently in between. Varin had begun teaching Boo from the start, regarding the intricacies of his work with ghosts, how to deal with them and so forth. But he had kept to his personal belief that Boo needed to be older before dealing with a spirit unassisted.

It was not until Boo was 30 that Varin deemed him ready to possibly withstand the trials and tribulations of tackling his first ghost. Varin himself was an eccentric man with more than a handful of quirky staples to his personality, to put it lightly. Boo meanwhile had shown a healthy appetite for learning, his progress swift and efficient. However, he was not without distractions either, one of which happened to reside in Alvadas and had expressed her intentions to be married.

So it was a love struck Boo settled in the City of Illusions, having spent only two further years training with Varin after having become a true spiritist in his own right. Sadly his seven seasons in Alvadas were not all fun and sunshine. Varin had grown old in years and in need of care, a fact that had never sat well with Boo's apparently heartless wife. This heaped pressure on an already fragile marriage, the fledgling lovers soon learning that perhaps their affections for one another had not expanded very far. After almost two years, husband and wife resigned themselves to defeat and headed their separate ways. The parting was not amicable.

Having seen enough, Uncle Varin took the opportunity to bow out, urging Boo one final time that he should return to his calling as a spiritist. In his final words, Varin randomly pointed out that he had never before been to Lhavit, and there in that city could be found a fresh start. With his affairs in order, everyone he knew either dead or gone, and little to tie him to Alvadas, Boo settled his accounts and departed on a ship that decided to take a really long time getting anywhere fast.

With Lhavit on the horizon, Boo had put lost love and dead family behind him, cherishing the good memories while locking away the bad. He had yet to determine what kind of man he was. In truth he did not know how. Yet in Lhavit he saw the promise of a blank canvas, where the sins of the past were forgiven and the future was a realm of possibility.

A wedding gift from his father-in-law, Boo decided at the end of his marriage that the set of four ornate yet functional kitchen knives would stay in his possession.
