Family :
1. Who are your parents and what are they like?
I have a dad named Jared and a Mum named Silvia. They were the busy sort, hard workers and they worked long hours. Hardly see them in the day time, seemed convinced that every GM they earn would set me on the right path.

No, my parents could barely support all three of us.
3. What is your extended family like?
I’ve never met nor heard anything about them, I’m assuming I have none

If they’re as close as family then they’re family, that there’s a no brainer.
5. Do you treat animals like family?

Location :

Syliras, its stuffy inside but it has a nice wilderness around it so I can’t complain much.
2. Where do you live now?
Kenash, its interesting though the Dynasts are a worrying thing.

The wilderness if I thought I could survive long enough.

In a grave.

I’ve got a stab wound on me chest and cut on me neck.
2. Are you right handed or left handed?

Common is my native tongue, And I guess you could say I sound a bit deep with a sort of accent that sounded like a big dog whimpering

I like to wander, leave me by my lonesome and I’ll probably walk into a snake pit because I thought I saw something interesting

You’d have to numb me first before I get any of those things, I hate pain!

Be an animal… that’s what you mean, right?

I’m living it, an animal handler gets to works with all sorts of animals, breed ‘em and train them lots of stuff. Don’t think I’d admire anything more.
5. What occupation do you lest like? Why?
Mercenary, not that I haven’t tried my hand at it when times are desperate but I actively try to avoid professions where I could get killed and being a merc sounds like the most dangerous and thankless.

None, if I learn anything new that’s good but I won’t actively seek it unless I need it in the near future.

Not really, not the talkative sort if I had a choice. I’d be giving you one word responses now if I weren’t prompted

Parents, they raised after all for a given value of it.

Collaborative Thread Limit= 2/3

Right, from experience I noticed a tendancy of me taking too many threads I can handle with other people. So I'm establishing that thread limit up there. If the limit is 3/3 then take note that I can't thread with you until one of those threads I'm part of are done and gone.
