Actually, this was my answer to that:
Quote
Calm and Docile Towards a Conflict *A strict pacifist with a nonexistent temper, Scriabin simply does not harm people. Having a spine is seen as barbaric and useless to him; Anger does nothing more than to discredit, confuse, and hurt both the perpetrator and victim.

I hope it was adequate.

???? I was under the impression that I was ready for more comments, as I had been clear as to my answer on Azhira's comment. If I'm not ready, than feel free to correct me. As always, no offense intended Thumb up

Hi Alexandre,

I really like what you've done with the history section in which you've mentioned all the various cities and landforms he has seen/visited.

I've just got a couple of comments/questions related to the part you have included on 'His Religious Studies and Conclusions'. I've repeated that below for ease of reference.

Most of my questions are just curiousities about your CD.

Quote
His Religious Studies and Conclusions-

Ancestor Worship *He believes that ones ancestors should be revered and remembered, but not worshiped. There is no individual (excluding deities) that has come even close to earning something akin to worship. Those who are mortal have apparently earned death, not glory.

Deities *When an individual is fully enlightened, there is only one choice: either have perspective (good) or lack perspective (evil). He views the idea of many gods with different goals and opinions as silly and misguided. The only distinct parameters he can find is that there is bad and there is good. So obviously, there is no room for these other gods of power, sensuality, authority, humor, fertility, jealousy, etc. There isn't much reason in naming the two contradicting gods, but Ava and Coor seem like good enough defaults to him.

1) In Ancestor Worship ... I believe it should be He believes that one's ... with the apostrophe before that 's' rather than without the apostrophe.

2) Is that solely from his Erpheronian perspective or from his Rhulran perspective as well? Or did he mainly just consider himself as an Erpheronian who was raised with Erpheronian perspectives? Does he consider the Rhulran perspective of such things in his religious studies?

Edit: This one seems to have been addressed somewhat by Azhira.

3) Unless I'm mistaken (and I'm sure I'll be corrected by Azhira/Kalina/someone else if I am mistaken with this) Ava and Coor are Styrash gods, not ones that humans from Caelereth would necessarily know about.

Edit: This one seems to have been addressed by Azhira when Valan asked it previously.

Another quote from your CD follows ... this time from your possessions

Quote
religious texts for him to study (they vary depending upon the beliefs of the individuals in his current location).

4) In light of the above quote ... I'm not sure if I've missed it or not, but I can't seem to find any indication of where he picked up reading. I've read through your history as well as your strengths ... and can't see it. Maybe you could enlighten me on that?

5) Also, if he only considers concepts of Good and Evil with respect as being deities (Ava and Coor), why would he be carting around religious texts based on the beliefs of the individuals in his current location. If he is wandering through Santharia, surely those texts would be based on the twelve? Why would he have those texts with him if he doesn't believe in the deities they are by/about?

EDIT: The last part of this 5) already seems to have been asked by Valan/addressed by Azhira.

EDIT: I've now looked back through previous comments, and have seen that some of my questions have already been asked and addressed. I've put them in a different colour as a result. Feel free to address them if you'd like to

Thank you for your poignant observations, my friend.

I wasn't specific enough about a few things, and really did little more than hint at things that were central to his perspective.

The foremost point: Yes, he is rather well read. I will add that as a strength and realize now that it was dimwitted of me to assume that it goes without saying.

In response to number two, he doesn't necessarily just act like or identify with Erpheronians and/or Rhulrans. One of his most important traits is that he is a product of logic, not his environment. He identifies with people in general, and is endlessly inquisitive and sympathetic towards any and all conscious entities.

He doesn't have any prejudice within him not only because of simpler cliches we tend to identify with on the matter, rather that he can't find any reason anything at all is superior or inferior to anything else. It's all just relative and symbolic to him.

As for number three, the problem is that I'm dumb, but I'm not stupid. I should have recognized this one. :D I really think it would be more appropriate if he didn't give either of them a name. Words are such simple, subjective, and barbaric things anyways.  cool

As for number five, he has a strong passion for religion, and isn't picky when it comes to scriptures. Wisdom can be found in a creek, in a tree hollow, under a bridge, lying on the road, in a savage man's hands. Who is he to assume that such a thing as wisdom is confined to any location? I'll elaborate upon that in his personality.

Also, yes, most likely they would be based upon the twelve. But that doesn't necessarily rule out the possibility of anything else. It seems best to keep the wording that's already there.

I think Alex is ready for approval. He has worked hard on this CD and it looks balanced to me. The religious beliefs are more humanistic then the norm, but that's ok. Personally, I do not see how such a person could fit in well in a Santharian setting. His views would be quite different, and he makes this a weakness, as appropriate. This is not so much as a "fantasy" type character to me, but more of a philosopher in the likes of Voltaire or someone similar. That's ok too.  Thumb up

Thank you. And you hit it right on the mark. I was going for a kind of Enlightenment period philosopher in Santharia, so to speak.

And I agree with Azhira ... it seems balanced to me as well, and so here's a 2nd Re-Approval.

So, please remove those colours, and we can get it down into the archives for you,Alexandre.
