I want my character to be, first and foremost, a cook. He will explore faraway and remote planets in search of the most exotic ingredients to create culinary masterpieces. Furies seem really fun, so I'll have to find a way to tie that together.I had originally considered a mercenary of sorts, but like @UninsurablePilot said, it might be fun to balance them out with the other side of the business deal.
I have already shared somewhere on this forum a short story depicting my character, but as we are gathering all the concepts here, I'm happy to join in!Basically, it is my intention to build a warrior-poet-lover-mysitic character, much inspired by Oberyn Martell from the Game of Thrones, as well as by Kakita Toshimoko from the L5R universe. As my greatest memories from Achaea come from well role-played rituals and social interactions, I want to create for myself as many opportunities for such role-playing as possible. My real-life inspirations will be: the poetry of Rumi, tantra and some elements of Daoism - but only to the extent that the Jedi were influenced by zen, which is just enough to make the characters engaging.As for the race-class combination, a W'hoorn Fury seems perfect for the job. Star kith will be a great symbol of the intense love of life, the passion and brightness I want to role-play.
The way people've been talking, I don't think we'll have any corporations not doing shady business.
My character will be Adraxus Thrake, a human B.E.A.S.T. pilot that was born and raised in space. He's a fairly odd blend of idealistic and practical, in that he has noble goals but he's not naive - he knows hands will have to get dirty in order to accomplish them. Very driven, very dedicated to his cause and the people that are under his protection. Solid. Reliable. Steady. He's a good man at his core, disgusted by the unconscionable crimes committed by the likes of the Cleax, Voniken Krel and the Nabia.
Adraxus is honourable where it’s feasible, but he knows it's a luxury, and not something to throw lives or advantage away for. Somewhere on the scale of Lawful Good to Lawful Evil. Composed and dignified but not cold or rigid. Absolute confidence, very imposing presence, has a deep, rich voice - though it’s distorted to be more frightening when he’s in his B.E.A.S.T.
He absolutely adores space, and doesn't find it cold, empty or daunting at all. It's unspeakably beautiful to him, a wonder full of promise and possibility, untold freedom. He can often be seen standing before the viewports on his ship, hands clasped behind his back Darkseid style, gazing out at the stars.
Dresses very sharply and puts a lot of stock in how one presents oneself in regards to posture, mannerisms and the like. Intelligent, and very well read. Mannerly and courteous, but approachable and warm when not in command situations. he finds maintaining/working on his B.E.A.S.T. very satisfying and centering. Keeps it in pristine condition, routinely upgrades it. Hobbies and favoured pastimes include browsing through catalogues and magazines related to B.E.A.S.T.s and ships. He likes movies and pantomimes, is a sucker for comedies. He likes to build models, has a bunch of meticulously crafted spaceships, miniature B.E.A.S.T.s, etc in his quarters. Reads biographies and histories a lot.
Ideally, I’d love for him to be able to form a group (Name pending!) that is dedicated to bettering the galaxy and everyone in it - whatever it takes. It'll require multiple personnel roles in order to function as he envisions: Combatants for guard duty and protection, armed intervention and extermination. Transport staff, resource management, people to gather raw materials and manufacture what they need to be self sustaining, intelligence officers, etc, etc. That's a dream, though - I fully intend for him to do all of that himself, as he has every intention of shaping the galaxy into a better place singlehandedly if he needs to.
His B.E.A.S.T. has a somewhat knight-like aesthetic, and he has a fondness for melee combat.
