Re: (OOC) Background Talk
Cyrus Weaver, the weavers' eldest son, started training under the local witch, Meredith Blackpool, when she discovered his above-average intelligence and common sense, boredom with his inherited profession, and pleasant disposition.

Re: (OOC) Background Talk
 Cohen has mostly been a goof around town, a walking joke. Lately he's had it in his head he is fed up with being the youngest in a family of farmers and Cohen has attempted lame and often embarrassing attempts at heroism. His plans to be a powerful warrior ad great hero some day all comes from his actual ambition of being adored by women. He's a social loser, but there is no doubt he is at the very least trying... at times very trying.

Re: (OOC) Background Talk
Leo was orphaned and left on the streets.  Unlike other kids in his predicament, he didn't turn to a life of crime.  Instead, he wandered off into the surrounding forest.  Several days later he returned.  He was hungry, filthy and deliriously happy.  He had found a place where food was free for the taking and the scenery was amazingly beautiful.  His skill as a hunter is growing.  You've probably seen him around town selling furs and meat.  Quiet, a little uncomfortable around people, but generally likable.

Re: (OOC) Background Talk
Denyssa is the younger child of a exiled Elf and his human mistress turned wife. She was raised in and around their Inn and was always adventurous about town and outside it. When she was very young she and her brother would listen to her father's tales of adventure with her mother and she, at least, took them to heart.

While she is working hard for her father in the Inn, she has always yearned for the life her parents had and would jump at an opportunity to leave. She is somewhat quiet and shy around new people but around those whom she has grown up with she is more open and boisterous.

Re: (OOC) Background Talk
Gurstine Serpenthelm is the older child of a smith, from a brief marriage with a half-orc adventurer; brief because her mother had continued to quest from time to time, and disappeared for the last time several years ago. Her younger brother takes after their father, but Gurstine is more like their mother. Their father's elderly parents live with them, in the same building as the smith, and are just deaf enough to mistake the pounding as music. She's friendly and inquisitive, encouraged by her family to be thoughtful and beautiful if she likes. The last few years, she's been spending a lot of her time in the church, praying to reconcile her love of the peaceful town life with the desire to be that orc stereotype, pick up a weapon and wade into combat. After all, everyone she cares about has supported her in learning to read, write, make jewelry, and other dainty pursuits.

Michael

Re: (OOC) Background Talk
Michael is a 17 year old with ideas of running off and becoming a great warrior. He loves hearing stories of adventure and heroes. While not the strongest person ever, he doesn't back down from a chance to try and prove himself.

He keeps his brown hair cut short, as he is working with his family at the inn a lot and it gets quite warm. He has blue eyes and stands just shy of six feet tall. Right now he is around 150 lbs, but he still doesn't look done growing so that may change.

He has a strange sense of honor, which he assumes is from hearing the stories about heroes and knights and the like.

Michael is not blood kin to the Tassarion family (the inn keepers). During some adventuring time in their past, they found Michael and have been raising him as their own. He has grown up watching out for his younger sister Denyssa, although he is only a year older than her. Though not actually blood related he feels strongly for the family that has taken him in and always feels accepted there.gh, that has yet to happen.

Re: (OOC) Background Talk
Articus Thane enjoys nature, and has a strong sense of justice. 17 years old, but wise for his age, Articus seeks to help others by first honing his body and mind.

A disciplined young man, Articus has a strong sense of justice and seems to follow his own code. He doesn't have many interactions with other kids his age, but he's always been available to lend a hand or help on a hunting expidition.

He has been training with the militia and is pretty good with a bow.

Re: (OOC) Background Talk
Ziggy (who is 15) is a youngest of three brothers in a farmer's family. His mother is long dead and Ziggy doesn't remember her. Ziggy is fat, short, redhead and smiles all the time. He's also very noisy, and sometimes extremely arrogant, rude and selfish. At every opportunity he plays his wooden flute; when he does not, he explains everyone that he is going to be -- and already is -- a great musician. Frankly speaking, his music skills are not so good as he thinks they are. Ziggy's father doesn't think much about Ziggy's music and prefers him to do useful work instead. His brothers completely agree with the father.

Re: (OOC) Background Talk
All the world is a stage, especially those parts that really are. Regardless of how you think of showmanship, you can never go wrong with a little flair and panache, a flick of the wrist that turns handkerchiefs to doves and flowers to confetti. The sounds of the lute drift back and forth over all else, music emboldening the soul to such great heights as dragon taming, world saving, and winning this years pie eating competition.

Aedan has never been quite right. Head in the clouds is an understatement, regardless of the insights and social graces which go along with it. The daughter of an old trader and his wife now settled down to a sedentary life, her early years were filled with tales of the world and the heroics of the world's many adventurers. Now it seems as though she cannot always separate the stories and her own life. At only thirteen years old, she still has a ways to go until adulthood and perhaps the intervening time will help settle the loose pieces in her mind; though perhaps it will only serve to shatter them further, dispersing all rational thought through tales and song.

Re: (OOC) Background Talk

 Most know felix as one of the locals but he is smart, even those who dont care much for him have to admit he has a good brain, now if he would only act like it most of the time.

 Dark brown hair cut to about neck length thick and wavy. He has Hazel eyes with flecks of gold along the iris. He is average hgt around 5' 9", slim about 155. Everyone knows he is on his 16th birthday. Somewhat reserved and he likes to every now and then go into the forest for the day by himself.

 He dresses with comfortable clothes of sturdy weave and soft boots for comfort. He has a dagger that he eats with more then considering it a weapon to fight with.

 His parents work a tanners shop close to town and he seems to not want to follow that line of work
Hejami Tycom

Re: (OOC) Background Talk
Hejami has literally only been in the village for a few weeks. He came by only a few weeks before the ritual and was openly looking for young people who would be interested in being "adventurers". He apparently grew up as a young hireling of a mercenary party. Since he had witnessed more battles (though it doesn't seem to have rubbed off on his lackluster battle skills), the small group of town watch decided to keep him around for what he could teach them about how to fight bandits and similar threats from stories of the fights he had beheld.

No one knows anything about how old he is or where his family is and probably doesn't really care much to ask.

After people (slowly) became accustomed to his being around, it was agreed that if he too could pass the ritual then they would encourage the young people who wanted to take up "adventuring" to join with him. But, clearly the ritual didn't go quite as had been expected and things are a bit more complicated now.

Re: (OOC) Background Talk
Quarion has all ways been a little strange. He never really knew his mother and his father was always trying to get him to hide his elven looks and accent, he did the former to the best of his ability but he would always speak in the musical tones of the elves.
He has natural talent with magic but no formal training though he does practice when none are wathing, conjuring flsmall flames and other simple things. One would believe his affinity for magic had something to do with the rune on his right hand though he does not know himself what said rune means.
