Alexander Of Zeltiva

Appearance

Race: Human
Gender: Male
Age: 22
Birthday: Day, Season, Year.
Birthplace: Zeltiva

Appearance: Alexander is bronze skinned with medium long curly brown hair and is clean shaven. He is 182 cm tall and weighs 80 kg. His body is of medium build and lean and muscular as the result of hard physical training and careful dieting. He has heterochromia iridis causing his eyes to have different colors, left eye brown, right eye green, he believes this to be Gnosis mark but it isn't. Alexander takes great pride in his physical appearance and will regularly take time to groom and bathe, including clipping his nails, shaving, washing and combing his hair. Normally he smells slightly of perfume from anointed oils he puts in his hair and rubs on his skin. He is quite handsome, but this is diminished by his prominent nose and bushy eyebrows. When in casual situations, and temperature permitting, Alexander usually wears a short sleeved white tunic with an elaborate floral pattern embodied in purple, a leather belt with a gold plated buckle and leather sandals. If it is too cold he will sometimes don a red cloak and white pants over his outfit.

Character Concept

Alexander believes himself to be the offspring of his beloved mother and one of the Gods, though he does not know which one. Determined to prove himself to his godly parent and gain their approval, he travels the world in search of opportunities to commit great deeds and gain glory. He believes that when he has proven himself worthy, he will shred his human body and ascend to the level of godhood. And so Alexander tries his hardest to act as befitting of both a great hero and a demigod. Although good at heart, he has a tendency to act arrogantly, patronizing and pompous due to his beliefs about his heritage and status as a hero. He is a strong believer that actions speak louder than words, thus he is often reckless and rash much to his own detriment.

Alexander is willing to converse with just about anyone despite race or creed. Not knowing exactly who his godly parents is, he tries to stay open minded, fearing that by judging specific worlds views or races he might offend his godly parent. And so despite being a hero, he doesn't usually have anything personal against the people and monsters that he slays, as they were created as the gods intended and are only a mean to an end. Despite his fixation with the gods, he isn't particular devout or observant of religious rituals, but he tries to respect all the gods in his own way, considering them his extended family.

As he travels he will try to make contact with the gods at their places of worship, hoping to either gain knowledge of who exactly his parent is, or be told in specifics what he must do to ascend to divinity.

Now here's the twist, Alexander isn't actually a demi god. He just believes himself to be so, because of his mothers indoctrination. He holds this belief so strongly that even if he was told to his face by an actual god that he wasn't of godly decent, he would believe that they were merely trying to deceive him or test him in some way and continue his quest unfazed.

Character History

If one wants to understand the story of Alexander one must start with his parents. Both of Alexanders parents were born in Zeltiva, his mother Olympias to a wealthy family with many connections in both trade and to the Administrative Committee of the Sailors' Guild. His father Phillip on the other hand was born into a family of fishermen, eventual managing to become a sailor on one of Olympias family's ships. The two met when Olympias accompanied her father on an inspection of the ship Philip was working on. They got to talking when Olympias father wasn't looking and took an instant liking to each other. Quickly they agreed to meet again in secret, knowing that their relationship would be frowned upon. So they met in town every time Phillip was in port, soon falling in love. They hid their romance the best they could until one day Olympias began showing signs of pregnancy's while Phillip were out to sea. It didn't take long for her family to find out and she was disowned.

Having to leave her family home with no belongings or prospects, one of her relatives took pity on her and rented her a small apartment for her to live in, as well as giving her a small allowance to live on. She waited in her new apartment for Phillip to come home, but he never did. The ship he had served on had been sunk in a storm. Olympias was overcome with despair and her mental health quickly deteriorated.

When Alexander was born, Olympias claimed to have seen a beam of light appearing in front of her. It told her that all was not lost, for her child were not Phillips, but instead granted to her by the gods. Should she raise him to be a great hero, they would give back to Olympias all she had lost. The proof of Alexanders divinity she claimed was in his different colored eyes. Already unstable Olympias accepted her vision and did her best to raise Alexander to be the best hero she could. Although poor the same relative that paid for Olympias apartment and food agreed to pay for rudimentary education for Alexander.

He would spend most of his early years being taught by a private tutor and closely watched by his mother. She would tell him stories of great heroes of times past, stories of the gods, and stories of his glorious destiny to come. Alexander would eagerly listen, becoming ever more convinced of his divinity.

When he was twelve he was finally allowed more freedom and started mingling with the other children of Zeltiva. It did not go well at first, there were many rumors about him and his mother. He was horribly teased and even more so when he tried hoarding his divinity over his fellow children. They did not take such claims lightly and Alexander would often get into fights. If he ever started to doubt his divinity he would come home to his mother that would reassure and dote on him and tell him of his impending greatness. Though he started to not mention his divinity in public and eventually managed to make a few friends.

When he became a teenager he started taking the preparation for his ambitions seriously. Figuring that he would need to be in good shape to slay monsters or defeat evil tyrants, he started training his body and doing menial labor. As soon as he could he enlisted with the Zeltiva city guard in order to learn how to handle weapons, and though he did learn a little most of his time was spend helping the older guards handling drunk sailors. Having saved his money from his many years of working, he finally decided to set out to meet his destiny at age 22 and bought the necessary equipment and supplies need for his journey. He said farewell to his mother and booked passage on a ship headed to the mainland, hoping to find great deeds to accomplish and hopefully some answers about his divine origin. Alexander first sets his sights Syliras, hoping to make contact with the cities renown knights in his quest for glory.

Let me shed some light on the situation

Welcome to Miz, Alexander! My name is Luminescence, and I'm here to help. Your CS is looking good, but there are a few things you need to adjust before you continue.

*Your username and CS title: Your username and the title of your CS should just be your PC's name without any added titles; please adjust this. You can change your username through the User Control Panel.

*Your birthday: Please include a birthday with a season, day, and year. It is currently autumn 520 AV; in order to be 22, Alex could have been born in 498 AV between spring and autumn, or in winter 497 AV.

*Your skills: Please organize your skills alphabetically; you can further organize them by competency if you choose. You must denote your Starting Package skill points as SP; you have 50 SP. You can only put a minimum of 5 SP and a maximum of 30 SP into a single skill, so please adjust your glaive skill (which should be labelled 'Weapon: Glaive').

As a human, you also get a +15 Racial Bonus that you can add to any one skill of your choice, denoted as RB. You also describe Alexander as muscular and as taking care of his appearance; you need skills to back up the things your PC does, so I recommend reallocating your SP to take some points in Bodybuilding and Cosmetology.

*Your lores: 'Lore of Zeltiva Culture' is too broad of a lore; you cannot have a lore on an entire culture. Please choose another lore; you can choose one based on a specific deity, or perhaps on a skill you have, for example, 'Lore of keeping suspense in a story'.

*Your possessions: Please choose a cloak OR coat. Your SP clothes should match the clothes you describe Alexander wearing (a tunic instead of a shirt, sandals instead of boots, etc). Otherwise, if you want those items as an extra set of clothing, you will have to purchase them. You'll need to purchase Alexander's belt and remove the cost from your ledger either way since it's not part of the SP.

Also, if you list your mizas in your possessions list, please keep them updated to match your ledger.

*Your housing: Please specify where you are staying. Syliras offers apartments within the castle for permanent housing, or inns that are available to rent. You can see more specific information on the Syliras CS template.

*Your ledger: I recommend putting your ledger into a table; it will make it easier on you in the long-run, as well as on STs and graders to make sure it's up to date. Ex:
ItemCostTotal
Starting+100 GM100 GM


*General: You can remove the helpful hints such as languages you aren't taking and the note about organizing your skills, if you wish.

Once you've made the above corrections, let me know and I'll remove this intervention. Otherwise, if you have any questions, feel free to either PM me or find me in chat!
