Okay, here's my sign up. Nothing to scream about, and I will be rusty, but hopefully I'm still literate.
Name: Bess Flynn
Starting Class: Fighter/ Red Mage (Sort of, but not really)
Appearance: Bess is a little under average height for a women and well tanned. Her very long light brown hair is always braided to keep it out of her face which makes her vibrant green eyes stand out better. Her delicate facial features are easy to read, her face is always reflecting her inner thoughts. On the whole, she has a very unthreatining and unassuming apperance. Used to the policies in Ralik she always keeps herself modestly covered, hiding her curves well. Her typical attire consists of lossely fitting pants held up with a large black belt, a sturdy pair of worn leather boots, a light white tunic and a red vest.
History: Born and raised in Ralik, Bess has always lead a strict life. She came from a very well respected family, which added to her pressures and in her angsty teen years, ultimately lead to her rebellion. Her family has a history of magic, indeed one of her great, great, great grandfathers was a talented Mage, but over the years the family lost respect for the practice. Naturally, Bess showed an interest mostly in spite, and later ran away to a magical college in trainging to be a Mage (having stolen family money to do so). Her family disowned her, but she was ready and excited to become a Mage and chart her own course. Once in school she found that she lacked all forms of talent, both natural and taught. Even with her best efforts behind her learning, she could barely master the simplist healing and non-healing magics and she was kicked out of college. With little money and no one to turn to she traveled with whomever would take her, finally ending up in Duath where she was forced to learn how to fight simply for survival. She's scrounged enough money to get out, and she's on the road again.
Personality: Bess tends to take on a mothering role with people she trusts which makes her come across as obnoxious and stubborn. She'll tell you that her hometown didn't have an affect on her, but in truth she can be somewhat paranoid at times and it takes a lot to earn her trust. She still holds onto some of the culture and rules at a subcouncious level, making her a bit judgemental. She is suspicious of almost everything and although she seeks adventure, she won't dive in blindly. She prefers smaller weapons, favouring short swords, daggers and the like. She won't use magic unless seriously pressured to and normally regrets it afterwards.
