Elf, Eophyrhim


« on: January 18, 2007, 06:19:53 AM »

    Yellow = Changes


Name:
    *Weivóc'Neán(destiny end)

Gender:
    Male.

Age:
    273.

Height:
    Approximately 2 peds and a palmspan.

Weight:
    1 pygge, 5 hebs, 8 ods.

Eye Color:
    Black.

Hair Color:
    Nor'sidian

Race:
    Elf.

Tribe:
    Eophyrhim Elf.

Occupation:
    Assassin, Bounty Hunter.

Title:
    The Forsaken.

Overview:
    From the looks of him, one would not guess this mans gruesome past. He has grown into a expert assassin. If asked, this man would say "I enjoy what I do for a living". He moves in the night very swiftly and silently. He always sticks to the shadows and never reveals himself at night while on a mission.   

Physical Appearance:
    Overall Body- He is a tall and slender elf. Even though he is actually strong, his body structure deceives the eye and gives him a different appearance. He has some tattoos that are just the drawings and not colored in.

    Head- He has three piercing on his right ear and two piercing on his left ear. Two of the piercing on his right ear, and a piercing on his left ear are dangling diamonds, which he believes brings good luck to him on his missions. The other two, one on each ear, are studs, which he believes keeps bad omens from entering his dreams. His hair falls down to his shoulder blades in the back, gradually shortening while heading to his face where it only goes down just below his, almond shaped, crystal blue eyes. Even though his hair is sort of long, it has never given him away.

    Arms- He has a tattoo of a hawk soaring on each of his upper arms. This is over tight sinewy rippling muscles. These are from long periods of working out and strengthening these muscles in different ways.

    Upper Body- He has a tattoo of a lone mithral wolf on his back. Also, on his chest, there is a tattoo of a frost dragon curling around staring straight out with spine chilling eyes. This is over a tight well worked out chest and abs that show no trace of fat.

    Legs- There is a tattoo of the Eophyrhim hunting hound on each one. Even though his legs don't look like they have much muscle, they can actually carry him and his belongings quite a distance relatively fast without tiring. This is due to endurance and speed training.

Clothes:
    He is always wearing a black cloak with a hood. Under his cloak, he is wearing a black ether-flake shirt and leather pants. He wears black dyed animal hide shoes. He also wears a black silk scarf that is very long but just short enough that when standing its just barely above the ground.

Personality:
    He has always been different including his personality. Some even say his outlook on life is twisted, but he says that he doesn't have a strange outlook. He says we are destined to become very strong and show that you are more superior compared to others. Also, you need to have some compassion for someone or something in someway. He thinks this because this is what he has always thought, since he has been an outcast. He has always been afraid of being in a giant crowd. When in one, he get nervous and can easily lose control and start attacking people. Even though he doesn't use weapons when he does this, it does usually have one or two people need medical treatment. He does not mind openly telling people the truth, because he thinks people who lie are just weak people who deserve to die.

    Though no one knows it but him, he has a soft spot for wolves and foxes and will not abandon one in danger or that is injured. This is because he understands their pain and how they are outcasts for no reason. He also think that with power there comes responsibility. His responsibility is to work for people and do their work for them which is killing and murdering people. This is due to the thrill he finds in killing people and the fact that he believes he should give the privilege of death to those who deserve it. Otherwise when making idle chat, he is actually seems quite normal and knows much about what's happening in the world. Also if one asks, he can have the knowledge on anything that is happening around the world.

Strengths:
    *Stealth Skills- Ability to stealthily kill and to conceal himself in the shadows.
    *Strength- Able to swing a blade even of considerable weight very fast.
    *Endurance- Able to run long distances and able to last long through fights.
    *Adaptable- He has always been able to learn and adapt very easily to anything including weapon skills or harsh weather.
    *Customized Scimitar- he can use it quite well and has a very unique in fighting style.
    *Salén Pins- he can use these with pretty good accuracy.
    *Coorán'Lóh Blades- he can use these very well, but can't use in combination with his scimitar. Only used for if he loses his weapon, whether it be by it breaking or knocked out of his hands.

Weaknesses:
    *Agoraphobia(Fear of Big Crowds)- He has always been afraid of being in a giant crowd, and when in one, he get nervous and can easily lose control and start attacking people.
    *Slow Healing- He heals relatively slowly. No one knows the cause of this.
    *Persistent- Due to always being persistent, he has almost killed himself several times and has lost many deals on items and merchandise.
    *Weak Immune- Due to an ingrown immune system, he is susceptible to poisons, toxins, and diseases more than the usual elf. He has not grown immune to poison like a normal Eophyrhim elf, because he has never used poison on an enemy except for missions, and not to catch animals. It is ingrown due to the fact that he had recieved a good poison immnue when he was a kid and then he got older, he didn't eat anything with the usual poisons used by his tribe to hunt. Due to this, it became worse then if he never had it when born.
    *Bad Left Shoulder- Due to a badly healed injury to his shoulder during a mission, it sometimes causes him pain making him unable to use that arm.
    *Wolves/Foxes- Due to an unusual compassion for wolves and foxes, he will help them no matter what. This has put him in dangerous and unnecessary situations and also has caused him to be bit time to time.
    *Oneirophobia(Fear of Dreams)- For some odd reason, he grew up with a fear of his dreams and nightmares. No matter what they were, it always meant something bad happening depending on the dream. Sometimes he dreamt of people just dieing in front of him and the next day he would get hurt some way. Whenever he has a dream, he is always seen at a hand-made shack in the woods just out of the town he is staying at, or his home until he moves to a new town. Even though this doesn't stop what was going to happen from happening he feels like it makes it less painful. The only time he isn't at home, is when he is on a mission, but somewhere in town that day.
    *Heliophobia(Fear of Sun)- Due to a fear of the sun since birth, he has never looked at the sun, studied about the sun, or ventured into sunlight with out his entire body being covered by clothing. Due to this, he has been hindered from traveling at some points where there were rips or tears in his clothing, being afraid something would happen to him if the sun touched his skin. This has also caused his skin to become intolerant to the sun. If he were to venture into the sun with a part of his body exposed to it, it would burn very easily and could even scar.

History:
    He was born to a pretty rich family that worked as assassins. Ever since his birth he has had 3 majors fears he couldn't conquer. These were fear of the sun, big crowds, and his dreams. Due to the fear of the sun, he has always wore a full body cloak, and tilting his head down to shade his head, to protect his skin from the sun and thought of himself tainted if he were ever touched by the sunlight. Also, when being taught, he never listened to the studies about the sun since he feared it. He naturally wanted to follow in his parent's footsteps, so they started training him at the age of 16. As he grew up he started wondering why he was on this earth and what was his purpose. He also decided that when he grew up, he was going to kill people for a living. He decided this, because he enjoyed the thrill of the hunt and success. When he turned 19, he started to work out everyday in the woods to work out. At the age of 26, his parents bought him a customized scimitar because they were starting to train him to fight with swords. It was customized how he wanted by making it longer and less curved but still kinda thin. He asked for it this way, because he liked long two handed swords, but did not like them to be excessively heavy which is how most are. He learned to use this well and fast. After he was through training with them, he became a hunter and started developing very good stealth and learn to kill quickly.

    At the age of 89, he killed many of the people in the Arvins Festival. It is a festival held every 25 years in which there is a great feast honoring 25-40 random humans. That night after the feast, the humans are released, and the Eophyrhim chase after and kill them once the sun rises. It usually lasts 2-8 days. This scared everyone because it had never been done before by one person alone so fast. They were also scared because they thought that he might give the privilege of death to fellow clan members. Even though others see him as twisted, he thinks he is just misunderstood. Before this happened, he had a dream about two wolves running across a empty field in the middle of the night when a full moon was in the sky. He believes this to symbolize him being exiled from the clan since it was a full moon that night and he was thus exiled. He then ran far away across an empty field all throughout the night.

    After he killed most of the people in the festival by himself, he was exiled from the tribe, because they felt he might betray them for some reason, and was never seen there from then on. He became a hired assassin with a scary past. He went to the nearest city to work in his new life. He worked for 8 years before he bought some coorán'lóh blades to fit his shoes. He noticed these when he saw a kaierian warrior using them. He asked what they were and if he could get some and the kaierian warrior happily helped him. He trained himself to use these, to be able to use without making major mistake, for the next 5 years, while living off money he acquired in the last 8 years. After he resumed killing for awhile, he met a stranger that introduced him into salén pins. After learning some about them he learned to use them better on his own in a small training course he built himself off in the woods.

    After that he resumed being an assassin until he was 198, then a bartender that knew what he did for a living, and that always asked him questions, asked this question, while serving him a drink, "Are your parents proud of what you do?"
    "Yes, but they don't know how good I am at my job," he replied.
    "Why haven't you told them what you do?" The bartender asked.
    Taking a drink from his glass, he then replied "Because I can't tell them how good I am on account of something I did causing me to get exiled from the tribe."
    "What was that?" The bartender inquired with a wondering voice.
    He drank the rest of his drink and set his glass down. He then replied, "I enjoy killing so much that I started to scare them all, including my own parents."

    After this, everyone that learned of his past started calling him "The Forsaken" because he did not seem normal. They thought this because it was not normal for a elf, even a Eophyrhim, to have a love for killing as much as he did. He then left the town he was in and started moving from town to town never staying longer than 10 years anywhere. He sometimes did end up in a town he had visited before but no one recognized him, because it had been at least 75 years before he went back to the same town. While in town he would find a bar after about a week of looking. When he found it he would go to the bar and order the same drink he always did. He would then let everyone know he was a bounty hunter and to leave a note on the board or to tell him personally right then of requests. He would then leave and go off into the crowd of people and disappear. He would come back later and check the board and complete the requests in less than a week, except certain ones that required much travel that would take longer.

Weapons:
    *Salén Pin- Was showed to him by a stranger when he was 134 and he choose to use them while this stranger taught him somewhat how to use them. He got better on his own with his own training course for them he built.
    *Coorán'Lóh Blades- He bought these himself, after seeing a Kaierian Warrior use some, at the age of 98 and learned to use them on his own.
    *Modified Scimitar- Given to him as his 26th birthday present. It's modified by making the blade longer and a little less curved. This was made at his request.

Belongings:
    *His weapons.
    *His clothes.
    *A sack for all his money.

Hi, Devien, and well met!  I hope you won't mind another newbie making some comments on your preliminary CD?  My comments will be in green.

"Name: Devien Lionhart.
Gender: Male.
Age: 273.
Height:    1 Ped, 2 Fores, 2 Palmspans, 8 Nailsbreadths, 4 Grains.
Weight:    1 pygge, 4 hebs, 3 ods.
Eye Color:    A very deep blue.
Hair Color:    Nor'sidian- 2 Palmspans, 1 Grain length in back while gradually working to 7 Nailsbreadths, and 3 Grains in front.
Race:   Dark Elf.
Tribe:    Eophyrhim Elf.
Occupation:    Assassin.
Title:    The Unborn."
You've clearly familiarized yourself with the Santharian color scheme and measurements; very good!  I realize it's not yet written, but with as obscure a Title as "The Unborn", you *must* explain that one in the history, if for no other than reason than to satisfy my curiosity.  Please?

"Overview:
    From the looks of him, one could not guess this mans troubled and gruesome past. He has grown into a expert assassin and doesn't regret any of his sins. If asked, this man would say "I enjoy what I do for a living". Even though to most this makes no sense, to him it makes perfect sense."
Check, looks good.

"Physical Appearance:
    He is a tall and slender man. He is always seen wearing a cloak with a hood on it. From his body structure, one would suppose he is not very strong but a weak and fragile man.
Clothes:
    He is always wearing a Nor'sidian cloak with a hood. Under his cloak, he is wearing a Nor'sidian cloth shirt and pants. He wears Nor'sidian dyed animal hide shoes."
Elaborate, elaborate, elaborate!  You've given us your measurements, eyes, and hair color; now describe how he might look lurking in the shadow of a partly-opened gate, his hood drawn close to his face, his hair tied neatly to eliminate any rustling, his hands slipping into secret pockets to find this or that tool...  Transform him from a comic character to a flesh-and-blood elfin man.

"Personality:
    "A very grim look on life" is what most people say his personality is. He says that he doesn't have a grim outlook, but that he has grown out of his naive life and has gone into the true nature destined for all living beings. (Could you explain that this true nature is, please?)  When one asks why, he responds "I did it because I found out my true destiny and took it into my own hands, turning it into what I wanted. Also, why hold back your true power when you can show the whole world what you are capable of?" Then he would laugh sinisterly. ('Sinisterly' sounds kind of, well, off.  How about 'with sinister and disconcerting glee'?)  Most people avoid him because they don't want to get on his bad side, which is easy to get on.
Okay, so he revels in committing atrocious acts.  Explain why in his History.

"Strengths:
    *Stealth Skills- Ability to stealthily kill people without others' knowledge and to conceal himself in the shadows.
    *Agility- Can run long distances without tiring and can also swing even some of the heavy blades relatively fast.
    *Strength- Can swing weapons down with much force. Also, can carry a lot long distances without tiring.
    *No Feeling- He doesn't feel regret for all of the killing he has done and does not regret his past.
    *Weapon skills- Can use swords (preferably his customized scimitar), Salén Pins, and Coorán'Lóh Blades very well.

Weaknesses:
    *Fear- People that know his past fear him for what he has done, Because of this he doesn't have many friends or people that will help him. (Being that he's an assassin, secretive by nature, this sounds more like a Strength to me, or at least a feature of his history.  I disagree that this is a Weakness.)
    *Slow Healing- He heals relatively slowly. This has been proven to hinder him by making him be sick or injured longer than usual.
    *Persistent- Even if odds are grim, he won't give up no matter what. Even if he uses stealth, he gets in regular fights very often. (Again, persistence is close to valor, which is a Strength.  If he's stealthy, he should be able to slip out of notice of city patrols, royal guards, whomever.)
    *Always moving- He's always moving so he has no time to settle and get used to one place, thus he never knows where anything is and gets lost easily."
I could be mistaken, but weighing his Strengths against his Weaknesses, he seems unbalanced to me.  I believe it's supposed to be a 1-to-1 ratio.

"Weapons:
    *Salén Pin- Was showed to him by his dad when he was 69 and he choose to use them while his dad taught him somewhat how to use them. He got better on his own with his own training course for them he built.  IMHO, people train better under someone else's tutelage than by themselves. 
    *Coorán'Lóh Blades- He bought these himself at the age of 97 and learned to use them on his own.  Same comment.
    *Modified Scimitar- Given to him as his 82th birthday present. It's modified by making the blade longer and a little less curved while still keeping it slim. This was made at his request.  Same comment.

Okay, he does indeed seem like a Bad Mister Frumper.  What makes someone eee-vil is what goes into their History.  For example, "the Bone Queen" sounds a little spooky, but that's it until you read her history, and learn that she's largely responsible for holding ancient Sarvonia in mortal terror of her whimsical cruelty for, what, a few centuries?  Make the Unborn just as grisly, or mysterious, or eeevil as you envision him.  That's it for now.  Good luck!

Hello and welcome to Santharia, ok my comments will be in Red

P.S. I can be a little nitpicky.

Name:
    Devien Lionhart.

Gender:
    Male.

Age:
    273.

Height:
    1 Ped, 2 Fores, 2 Palmspans, 8 Nailsbreadths, 4 Grains.

Weight:
    1 pygge, 4 hebs, 3 ods.

Eye Color:
    A very deep blue. (Drow tend to have darker colored eyes, browns and blacks)

Hair Color:
    Nor'sidian- 2 Palmspans, 1 Grain length in back while gradually working to 7 Nailsbreadths, and 3 Grains in front. All but the front is naturally spiked sorta leaning backwards when he wakes up.

Race:
    Dark Elf. (Here the term Drow would be better suited but IMHO just call him an elf)
Tribe:
    Eophyrhim Elf.

Occupation:
    Assassin, Bount Hunter.

Title:
    The Unborn.

Overview:
    From the looks of him, one could not guess this mans troubled and gruesome past. He has grown into a expert assassin and doesn't regret any of his sins. If asked, this man would say I enjoy what I do for a living. Even though to most this makes no sense, to him it makes perfect sense. He moves in the night very swiftly and silently. Even though his hair is not tied, it has never given him away. He always sticks to the shadows and never reveals himself in the light at night while on a mission.   

Physical Appearance:
    He is a tall and slender man (elf  grin). He is always seen wearing a cloak with a hood on it. From his body structure, one would suppose he is not very strong but a weak and fragile man. You can see a grey scarf dangling from his neck that is just barely over the ground. (expand here, this will help the reader get a better visual veiw of your character. So in other words help us see what you are seeing)

Clothes:
    He is always wearing a Nor'sidian cloak with a hood. Under his cloak, he is wearing a Nor'sidian cloth shirt and pants. He wears Nor'sidian dyed animal hide shoes. He also wears a
grey scarf that is very long but just short enough that when standing its just barely above the ground.

Personality:
    "A very grim look on life" is what most people say his personality is. He says that he doesn't have a grim outlook,but he says that he has grown out of his naive life and has gone into the true nature destined for all living beings, which is to become the one on top of the food chain and show that you are more superior compared to thers. When one asks why, he responds I did it because i found out my true destiny and took it into my own hands and turning it into what I wanted. Also, why hold back your true power when you can show the whole world what you are capable of. sneering with a sinister laugh. Most people avoid him because they don't want to get on his bad side which is easy to get on. He does not mind openly telling people the truth, because he thinks people who lie are just weak people who deserve to die, even if it is not there true time to go.

Strengths:
    *Stealth Skills- Ability to stealthily kill people without other knowledge and to conceal himself in the shadows.
    *Agility- Can run long distances without tiring and can also swing even some of the heavy blades relatively fast.
    *No Feeling- He doesn't feel regret for all of the killing he has done and does not regret his past.
    *Weapon skills- Can use swords(preferably his customized scimitar), Salén Pins, and Coorán'Lóh Blades very well.
    *Learning- He has always been able to learn and adapt very easily to anything including weapon skills or harsh weather.

Weaknesses:
    *Fear- People that know his past fear him for what he has done, Because of this he doesn't have many friends or people that will help him. Also, this causes him to not get as many requests for assassinations or for bounty kills because people are afraid of his work.
    *Slow Healing- He heals relatively slowly. This has been proven to hinder him by making him sick or injured longer than usual.
    *Persistent- Even if odds are grim, he won't give up no matter what. (re word this part, it sounds like a strength the way you have it worded) Even if he uses stealth, he gets in regular fights very often. This has led to him many times to almost being dead.
    *Always moving- He's always moving so he has no time to settle and get use to one place, thus he never knows where anything is and gets lost easily. (I am failing to see how this is a weakness, your character is an assassin and does not need to settle down)

History:
    He grew up disliked by everyone except his parents, that he knew of, including his older brother. Although he was hated, he did better than anyone else at learning how to use weapons, read and write, and even to use stealth skills. As he grew up he started wondering why he was on this earth and what was his purpose. Then he overheard his parents talking about how they hated him ever since he was born. From then on he decided to stick to his work and not have as much fun as he used to. He also decided tahat when he grew up, he was going to regret nothing and kill people for a living. At the age of 26, his parents bought him a customized scimitar because they were starting to train him to fight. It was customized how he wanted by making it longer and less curved but still kinda thin. He learned to use this well very fast, so his dad decided to show him what salén pins were. After he was through training with them, he became a hunter and started developing very good stealth and quick kills. At the age of 89, he killed his parents and brother for how they treated him and betrayed him. Even though others see him as evil, he is just getting revenge for his troubled and unwanted childhood. His words to why he killed his family is I wanted to see how deep my "container" was. Although no one new what he meant, they didn't want to ask anymore about it.
    After he killed his family, he left the tribe and was never seen there from then on out. He became a hired assassin with a secret past behind him. He worked for 8 years before by some coorán'lóh blades to fit his shoes. He trained himself to use these for the next 5 years, while living off money he aquired in the last 8 years. After that he resumed being a assassin and was not bothered much, until he was 198, then a bartender asked this question, while serving him a drink, "Are your parents proud of what you do?"
    Not exactly, but they don't know that i do this job. he replied.
    "Why havent you told them what you do?" the bartender asked.
    Taking a drink from his glass, he then replied Because I can't tell them what I do for a living on account of something I did causing me to get exiled from the tribe.
    "What was that?" the bartender inquired with a wondering voice.
    He drank the rest of his drink and slammed his glass down cracking it almost all the way through. I killed my entire family at the age of 89.
    After this, everyone that learned of his past started calling him "the Unborn" because he did not seem human to have no regret for killing your own family and so many people for no reason. He then left the town he was in and started moving from town to town never staying longer than 25 years anywhere. He sometimes did end up in a town he had visited before but no one recognized him. While in town he would find a bar after about a week of looking. When he found it he would go to the bar and order the same drink he always did and when done he would turn around and yell If anyone needs to hire me as a assassin or bounty hunter, then leave a note with the bartender and I will visit him each day looking for any and all notes addressed to me.
    He would then lelave and go off into the crowd of people and disappear and appear at exactly midnight and gather the notes and then complete the requests in less than a week, except certain ones that required much travel that would take longer.

Weapons:
    *Salén Pin- Was showed to him by his dad when he was 49 and he choose to use them while his dad taught him somewhat how to use them. He got better on his own with his own training course for them he built.
    *Coorán'Lóh Blades- He bought these himself at the age of 97 and learned to use them on his own.
    *Modified Scimitar- Given to him as his 26th birthday present. It's modified by making the blade longer and a little less curved while still keeping it slim. This was made at his request.

Belongings:
    *His weapons.
    *His clothes.
    *A sack for all his money.

Here you go that should be enough for now, once again welcome to Santharia. Navar

Weaknesses:
    *Fear- People that know his past fear him for what he has done, Because of this he doesn't have many friends or people that will help him. Also, this causes him to not get as many requests for assassinations or for bounty kills because people are afraid of his work. (most assassin's work alone and only care about them selves, apart from the Coorhem, many assassins prefer to be alone)
    *Slow Healing- He heals relatively slowly. This has been proven to hinder him by making him sick or injured longer than usual.
    *Persistent- Due to always being persistent, he has almost killed himself several times and has lost many deals on items and merchandise.
    *Weak Immune- Due to an ingrown immune system, he is suseptible to poisons, toxins, and diseases more than the usual elf.

As of now your weaknesses do not off set your strengths, you will need to come up with a couple extra weaknesses.

Just a suggestion, but you don't need to put actions and your character's words in different colors.  Edits during the approval process, of course, can be colored (i.e. Edits thanks to This Guy in pink) but other things within the CD should just be plain text.  Otherwise, it gets a little complicated to read, all in technicolor.  You can just use quotations marks ("") for speech and the rest in regular white.  It's much cleaner-looking.

All right, time for a Uri-check!  (I've done so many of these lately, it's crazy! :D)  Comments in teal.


    Yellow = Changes
    Blue = Chat By Me
    Red = Actions
See above note.
Name:
    Devien Lionhart. I do like the name Devien...not very Elven, but it's neat.

Gender:
    Male.

Age:
    273.

Height:
    1 Ped, 2 Fores, 2 Palmspans, 8 Nailsbreadths, 4 Grains. Not a huge thing, but I don't think you need to be so specific.  But you don't need to change it.

Weight:
    1 pygge, 4 hebs, 3 ods.

Eye Color:
    Black.

Hair Color:
    Nor'sidian- 2 Palmspans, 1 Grain length in back while gradually working to 7 Nailsbreadths, and 3 Grains in front. All but the front is naturally spiked sorta leaning backwards when he wakes up. This is hard to visualize with exact measurements.  Be a little more general here, like, "His hair is long in the back, falling to the nape of his neck, but grows gradually shoter as it reaches his cheeks and eyes."  Also, I don't think Eophyrhim have shortish hair like that.  It's normally long and wild, with braids through out, and natural spiking isn't..really possible.

Race:
    Elf.

Tribe:
    Eophyrhim Elf.

Occupation:
    Assassin, Bounty Hunter.

Title:
    The Unborn. Ooh, creepy.  Make sure to explain this title in the history, as "the unborn" isn't something one normally hears.

Overview:
    From the looks of him, one would not guess this man's troubled and gruesome past. He has grown into a expert assassin and doesn't regret any of his sins They're not sins if he doesn't regret them. ;). If asked, this man would say "I enjoy what I do for a living". Even though to most this makes no sense, to him it makes perfect sense This sentence is unnecessary.  The statement makes perfect sense; people may not think he's entirely great to be around because of it, but it makes sense.. He moves in the night very swiftly and silently. Even though his hair is not tied, it has never given him away Also unnecessary.  The Eophyrhim rarely tie their hair. He always sticks to the shadows and never reveals himself in the light at night while on a mission.   

Physical Appearance:
    He is a tall and slender elf. He is always seen wearing a color? cloak with a hood on it. From his body structure, one would suppose he is not very strong but a weak and fragile man Is he a weak and fragile man?  Maybe tack on "...a weak and fragile man; on the contrary, he is quite strong, his sinuous muscles rippling just beneath the skin."  Well, that last bit was from the Eophyrhim entry, but still.. A grey scarf dangles from his neck that is just barely over the ground This seems rather inconvenient, especially for an assassin.  A scarf that long would get caught in things, and be highly visible streaking behind him in the night.  Most assassins were tight-fitting clothes for easier movement.. He has a tattoo of a lone mithral wolf on a snowy mountain sitting and howling at a full moon on his back. He also has a hawk soaring in the open sky on each of his upper arms. On his legs, there is a tattoo of the Eophyrhim hunting hound on each one. Also on his chest, there is a tattoo of a frost dragon curling around staring straight out with spine chilling eyes. These tattoos seem a little excessive.  I'm not saying he shouldn't have any at all, of course, but I don't know if Santharian tattoo artists have the ability to paint such intricate, multicolored designs on skin.  They don't have sophisticated tattoo parlors, after all.  And why does he have so many tattoos?  What do they mean to him? He also has 3 piercing on his right ear and 2 piecrings on his left ear.
Space between segments.
Clothes:
    He is always wearing a Nor'sidian cloak with a hood. Under his cloak, he is wearing a Nor'sidian cloth shirt and pants. He wears Nor'sidian dyed animal hide shoes. He also wears a
grey scarf that is very long but just short enough that when standing its just barely above the ground. You can just say black, instead of Nor'sidian each time.  It'll read smoother.

Personality:
    "A very grim look on life" is what most people What people? say his personality is like. He says that he doesn't have a grim outlook,but he says that he has grown out of his naive life and has gone into the true nature destined for all living beings, which is to become the one on top of the food chain and show that you are more superior compared to thers. When one asks why, he responds I did it because i found out my true destiny and took it into my own hands and turning it into what I wanted. Also, why hold back your true power when you can show the whole world what you are capable of. sneering with a sinister laugh. Most people avoid him because they don't want to get on his bad side which is easy to get on. He does not mind openly telling people the truth, because he thinks people who lie are just weak people who deserve to die, even if it is not there true time to go.
This whole section is a little confusing, a lot of run-on sentences and miscommunications.  I can see where you're going, but it needs clarification.  Why did he decide that was a person's true destiny?  What's his "true power"?  How would people know it's easy to get on his bad side if they avoid him?  He seems like he could be a little more rounded; right now he's just a sinister guy with a megalomaniacal streak.  Maybe he's tender-hearted to other Elves, or likes kittens or long moonlit walks, you know, whatever.  Nobody's just one things. ;)

Strengths:
    *Stealth Skills- Ability to stealthily kill people without theirknowledge and to conceal himself in the shadows.
    *Agility- Can run long distances without tiring and can also swing even some of the heavy blades relatively fast. These aren't agility skills.  Agility is being flexible, able to, say, run and leap onto a high branch without difficulty, hold one's balance, etc.  Running long distances is endurance, and swing a heavy blade quickly is strength and a steady hand.  Also, how long of a distance can he run?  A day?  A few strals?  The Eophyrhim aren't known for extreme endurance, so don't go too overboard.
    *No Feeling- He doesn't feel regret for all of the killing he has done and does not regret his past. This doesn't seem like a strength.  This just seems like a character trait.  Perhaps you could say that he invests no emotion in his killing?  It's a little unreasonable to say he has no feelings.
    *Weapon skills- Can use swords(preferably his customized scimitar), Salén Pins, and Coorán'Lóh Blades very well. All swords?  Maybe just his scimitar.
    *Learning- He has always been able to learn and adapt very easily to anything including weapon skills or harsh weather. I would phrase this as "Adaptation" instead, as "Learning" is an activity, not a skill.  Also, adaptation is what you're describing. ;)

Weaknesses:
    *Big Crowds- He has always been afraid of being in a giant crowd, and when in one, he get nervous and can easily lose control and start attacking people. Why?  Is he claustrophobic, afraid of people?
    *Speaking- Never been able to speak to people that well since he left his tribe, the only time he speaks to people is when he is talking one-on-one or yelling, but usually leaves right after done talking due to how nervous he gets. This isn't really a weakness for someone who spends his time by himself and, on top of that, is an assassin.  His only really necessary speaking skills would be for his clients.
    *Slow Healing- He heals relatively slowly. This has been proven to hinder him by making him sick or injured longer than usual. Last sentence is unnecessary.
    *Persistent- Due to always being persistent, he has almost killed himself several times and has lost many deals on items and merchandise. I don't know about this one either.  Persistence can be a strength, too.  You may want to ask a higher-up, like Kain Cristar.
    *Weak Immune- Due to an ingrown immune system, he is suseptible to poisons, toxins, and diseases more than the usual elf. From the Eophyrhim entry: "They may also capture creatures and poison them, so they may eat the animal when the poison has worked effectively. This process has made them well-defended against most poisons."  So having your Eophyrhim Elf susceptible to poisons wouldn't make sense.

History:
    He grew up disliked by everyone except his parents, that he knew of, including his older brother. Why?  A really good reason is needed here, as a) no one is born hated by everyone, and b) the Eophyrhim are proud of their culture and their society, and wouldn't just shun one of their own.  Perhaps he was born in a strange manner, or has some mark that they think is cursed?  I don't know.  Although he was hated, he did better than anyone else at learning how to use weapons, read and write, and even to use stealth skills. Again, how?  If eveyone hated him, who taught him? As he grew up he started wondering why he was on this earth and what was his purpose. Then he overheard his parents talking about how they hated him ever since he was born. From then on he decided to stick to his work and not have as much fun as he used to When did he have fun before, if everyone hated him?  I think this universal hate isn't really feasible.  Somebody has to like him, even if it's only, say, a hunting dog.. He also decided tahat when he grew up, he was going to regret nothing and was kill people for a living Whoa there, how did he decide that?. At the age of 26, his parents bought him a customized scimitar because they were starting to train him to fight Even though they hated him...?. It was customized how he wanted by making it longer and less curved but still kinda thin Where did they find this customized scimitar?  And are you describing a katana...?. He learned to use this well and fast, so his dad decided to show him what salén pins were Again, if his parents hate him, why are they showing him all this cool stuff?. After he was through training with them, he became a hunter and started developing very good stealth and quick kills. At the age of 89, he killed his parents and brother for how they treated him and betrayed him What?  Why?  This is sudden and random!  There should be an event there that makes him snap; randomly killing his parents is, well, random.. Even though others see him as evil, he is just getting revenge for his troubled and unwanted childhood. Revenge on the rest of the world?  His words to why he killed his family is I wanted to see how deep my "container" was. Although no one new what he meant, they didn't want to ask anymore about it. What...container?
    After he killed his family, he left the tribe Why? and was never seen there from then on out. He became a hired assassin Where did he go? with a secret past behind him. He worked for 8 years before buying some coorán'lóh blades to fit his shoes. He trained himself to use these for the next 5 years Would it really take 5 years to learn to use blades in your boots?, while living off money he aquired in the last 8 years. After that he resumed being an assassin and was not bothered much Why would he be bothered in the first place?, until he was 198, then a bartender asked this question, while serving him a drink, "Are your parents proud of what you do?" Again, see top note for dialogue and colors.
    Not exactly, but they don't know that i do this job. he replied.
    "Why havent you told them what you do?" the bartender asked. Does the bartender know he's an assassin?  If so, why would he be asking these questions?
    Taking a drink from his glass, he then replied Because I can't tell them what I do for a living on account of something I did causing me to get exiled from the tribe.
    "What was that?" the bartender inquired with a wondering voice.
    He drank the rest of his drink and slammed his glass down cracking it almost all the way through. I killed my entire family at the age of 89.
    After this, everyone that learned of his past started calling him "the Unborn" because he did not seem human to have no regret for killing your own family Breaking a glass like that seems show an emotion and so many people for no reason I don't know, the Unborn still doesn't seem to fit. It makes me think of zombies.. He then left the town he was in and started moving from town to town never staying longer than 25 years anywhere. 25 years is a long time, especially since many towns in Santharia are primarily human.  That's almost half a human lifespan!  Someone would notice this brooding guy if he was there for that long. He sometimes did end up in a town he had visited before but no one recognized him Why not?. While in town he would find a bar after about a week of looking. When he found it he would go to the bar and order the same drink he always did and when done he would turn around and yell If anyone needs to hire me as a assassin or bounty hunter, then leave a note with the bartender and I will visit him each day looking for any and all notes addressed to me. This is unrealistic.  An assassin would not announce to the world he was an assassin.  It would get him killed.  He must be surreptitious and stealthy, that is the nature of assassin work.   This is something a boisterous pirate or mercenary looking for work might do.  Not someone who requires the shadows to do his job.
    He would then lelave and go off into the crowd of people and disappear and appear at exactly midnight and gather the notes and then complete the requests in less than a week, except certain ones that required much travel that would take longer.
There are a lot of holes here, but nothing that can't be fixed.  Round your guy out.  Right now he just seems unreasonably angst-y; sure he had a bad childhood but it's almost unbelievable.  He's not a preteen, after all, but a mature and wise Elf. :)

Weapons:
    *Salén Pin- Was showed to him by his dad when he was 49 and he choose to use them while his dad taught him somewhat how to use them. He got better on his own with his own training course for them he built.
    *Coorán'Lóh Blades- He bought these himself at the age of 97 and learned to use them on his own.
    *Modified Scimitar- Given to him as his 26th birthday present. It's modified by making the blade longer and a little less curved while still keeping it slim. This was made at his request.

Belongings:
    *His weapons.
    *His clothes.
    *A sack for all his money.

It's coming along.  Things need tweaking and editing, but it'll get there.  And spellcheck spellcheck spellcheck!

Ok well a certain part i can't fix until I have this question answered. What god do the Eophyrhim elves worship? What I need it for, which I ouldn't find in race page, was that he had a resemblance of the opposite good or some sign of that god as to show a bad omen for the tribe.

It's there on the page, though it may not say it explicitly.  Usually festivals are an easy way to see which god they celebrate.  If that doesn't answer your question, do a little research on dark elves in general.
