Postby Averila » March 28th, 2014, 9:49 pm

1. List four things you like very much.

-Power
-A good Grimoire
-A good meal
-A certain someone

2. List four things you dislike very much.

-People who get in my way
-Arrogance
-You
-People who ask stupid questions

3. Did you have a happy childhood?

I'm a warlock. Guess.

4. Describe the incident in childhood that you think most affected you.

When I first spilled my own blood to summon an imp. I can still remember the sensation of drawing the knife across my palm, the hot blood spilling out, hand throbbing in pain as the summoning circle ignited...

Well, when the imp finally appeared, I stomped on him for about five minutes to get him to quit mocking me. It's shown me that pain is necessary to grow stronger.

5. Describe your mother and how you feel about her.

This is like asking a priest of Elune to describe an Annihian Pit Lord. Pass.

6. Describe your father and how you feel about him.

Th... well, he was generally mediocre. A decent shadowcaster, but an awful summoner. I regard him with less respect and generally less hatred than my mother.

7. What are you favorite pastimes?

Souls. Whether it be setting fire to the very essence of someone, stifling their very life-force with shadowflames or entropic fire, or afflicting them virulent magical maladies and sucking their soul out for later use, it is a most delightful activity that I relish at every opportunity.

And erotic paintings. Turns out it's really hard for a known warlock to break into the art business, so I must make do with less prestigious endeavors. Pays well, though. Lots of goblins are willing to part with a good sum of gold to see... some very interesting renderings.

8. What person do you think has most influenced you?

Demisette Cloyce. Never has there been someone in my life who I have despised more than her. It is therefore her I have to thank for granting me the willpower to do the things I have been most afraid of. Mostly to spite her.

9. How do you feel about sex?

As of late? Sore.

10. What are your people's religious beliefs?

"My people"? What do you mean by that? Humans seem to be mostly a very pious race, a trait I do not share with many of them.

If you ask of warlocks then, well... I think you can use your imagination.

11. How far do you go along with these beliefs, and how important are they to you?

Hmph. The Light. Supposedly it will, one day, lead us all to tranquility, peace, and happiness. What a load. I knew nothing of the Light during my childhood. I knew Shadow and Felfire. I was born into it, molded by it, I had not seen the Light until I was a grown woman. Where was the Light when I faced my trials, alone, in the darkness? Where was the Light when I had to burn my home and kill my family? It was not there. So you tell me how important it is to someone like me.

12. How are your people organized and led?

Our King is an absentee father who thinks a kingdom is ruled from the front lines of a battlefield and his son who would be better off without him.

13. How do you feel about the leadership, and how important is it to you?

Ask yourself: Does a warlock care what anyone thinks but themselves? I'll give you a hint: No.

14. What is your philosophy of life?

"Power demands sacrifice."

15. If you could have any tangible thing in the world you wanted, what would it be?

Anything? Anything at all? ...I'd love to have some of that expensive Sin'dorei bedding. Those silken sheets are just to kill for.

16. Have you any physical difficulties?

Since my new housemate moved in? Yes, I have trouble walking in the mornings.

17. What kind of education have you had, and how did you feel about it?

I was instructed, quite thoroughly, on the arts of fel magics, demonology, summoning, rituals, calligraphy, paintings, writing, reading, a little cooking, and, more recently, I've been making forays into painting.

18. How do you think other people react to you as a person?

The same way most people react to a mad, fel-corrupted dog when it isn't kept on a tight leash. Some within the Empire might attempt civility, to which they are rewarded with further civility and favor. Mostly.

19. What are you proudest of?

Enslaving some of the most exotic demons known. Pit Lords, Nathrezim, even an Eredar Lord once, for a bit.

20. What are you most ashamed of?

Knowing that the days I spend lazing around the house are days I could be using to set more people on fire.

21. What is your deepest fear?

A normal fear-type compulsion charm, further empowered by fel-infusion. Oh, you meant mine... I'm afraid I can't say.

22. How do you feel about food?

There are few things in life that can be as satisfying as a good meat and vegetable stew. A well-made stew can keep you fed throughout the longest battles.

23. What makes you feel good?

Uhhh, not to be mentioned in polite company.

24. What do you dream about?

*Glare* Pass.

25. What do you try hardest to avoid?

Aside from doing any kind of actual work? Well, due to my recent expulsion from the Military, the entirety of Kalimdor.

26. What makes you angry? How do you react when you're angry?

Very few things can earn any kind of real anger. Frustration may be common, but it takes a certain kind of effort to really earn my ire. As for what I do when angry? Nothing. Aside from plot the slow, torturous demise of those who have gained my hatred.

27. How do you react to your people's relationship with the world around you?

We are a tiny speck of light midst the stygian, inky blackness of eternity, our lives as short as an insect, our progenitors abandoned by the Titans, and we, abandoned by them. We are the unwanted children of the gods and our ancestors, and slowly we are realizing this, and we are very, very angry about that.

28. What one person had the greatest affect on you as a child?

I'll not dignify them with the mere enunciation of their name, lest someone happen to remember it.

29. How athletic are you?

Oh, not very. Enough to keep trim.

30. How methodical are you?

When such a situation warrants that I should bring my intellect to bear upon whatever pithy situation or person demands it, very. Most of the time? I'd rather just burn it and have done with the affair.

31. What are your chief taboos?

As a warlock I am unburdened by such things.

32. How much traveling have you done?

A good sum, especially to Outland.

33. Describe a situation in which you behaved courageously.

"Courageous" does not well describe a warlock's behavior. "Vicious, spiteful, and malign" might be better descriptors.

34. Do you see yourself as a self-centered person?

No one else wanted to care about me, so why should I have cared about them?

35. Do you see yourself as a loving person?

I... don't want to discuss this.

36. Do you see yourself as a popular person?

HAH! No.

37. Do you see yourself having a potentially important influence on the world?

Mother once told me that I should strive to make an impact on the world. I can only presume she meant that I should leap from as high as possible to make a more distinct impression on the paving stones.

38. What is the purpose of your race?

To fail. To die. A hundred, a thousand, a million, a billion... it does not matter how many times. It is our purpose to die until someone comes along who knows enough to succeed just once, and then the cycle continues.

39. How artistic are you?

I was rather surprised, but I am very artistic when I am in the mood.

40. How do you feel about material things?

As a warlock, I have often become somewhat detached from the material world, but ever since I found a good bed, and some fine robes, I'll admit I have a certain affection for such things.

41. What are your plans for the future?

What are plans but things which others may ruin, either intentionally or not?

42. How idealistic are you?

Oh, you're funny aren't you?

43. How realistic are you?

I wouldn't say I'm especially realistic, either in my goals or expectations. Pragmatic at times, but not realistic.

44. How successful are you?

Financially? I just bought a giant, metal-plated golem that can fly. Was a good bit of retail therapy, that...

45. Name the four things you object to in other people.

Arrogance, stupidity, insolence, and, if I don't especially like them, their souls.

46. Name the four things you object to in yourself.

Needless haste, too much drink, my enemies' weapons, and low expectations.

47. How gullible are you?

At times... fairly gullible.

48. How intelligent are you?

I like to think I'm intelligent enough to outwit you.

49. Does the end justify the means?

Yes.

50. How attractive are you physically?

Many ritual sacrifices have seen that I am, indeed, very beautiful. Sometimes I forget to clean my nails, though.

51. Do you believe there is anything worth dying for? What experiences led you to this conclusion?

Death is certain. Why die a meaningless, impertinent existence when I can attempt to help my pitiable race.

52. What do you worry about the most?

I... am afraid to say.

53. What makes life worth living for you?

A memory, and that's all I'll say on the matter.

54. What is the difference between good and evil?

The only real difference is who has the power to dictate what is good and evil.

55. What kind of person would you like to be?

Me, of course.

56. What ideas in the history of the world as you know it should be forgotten?

Imagine that, somewhere in long forgotten libraries in civilizations that have passed from this world that there are books that describe things so abominable, acts so heinous, that it would darken your mind so that you might seek solace in death, yet in your pursuit you know that not even in the cold embrace of the grave will you find peace. These are the things that I have bore witness to, and these things I will keep buried if I should have my way.

57. What changes taking place in the world as you know it should be encouraged,
which discouraged?

The blind obedience which our leaders have asked of us is uncalled for. Each must fight his own battles insofar as I am concerned. No one has stepped in to help me, to aid my cause, so why should I bother with theirs? Let us encourage dissent, discourse, and actively question those who would impose their wills upon us. We are not gnomish automatons, nor slaves.

58. What ideas now popular among the people you know do you consider
potentially dangerous?

The notion that peace is possible without bloodshed.

59. What do you think is worth knowing?

The dangers of what one must do to protect yourself and those you love. And a good recipe for a meat and vegetable stew.

60. How do you feel about violence?

Useful, necessary, but often poorly practiced.

61. Do you have any children? Describe them if you do.

This conversation is over.

Postby Verin » March 30th, 2014, 2:15 am

1. List four things you like very much.
Let's see. I'd say studying the mind as I am fascinated by how powerful, yet fragile it is. I also like running, my hat, and nearly half my co-workers...much to my chagrin.

2. List four things you dislike very much.
Sincere insults, to start, followed by know-it-alls. I don't care much for getting up early either, though I fight through it. Lastly I can't stand being tricked, especially by friends.

3. Did you have a happy childhood?
Oh yeah. It was incredible to say the least. My parents supported my decision to join the Silver Hand as an initiate and from there...things go down hill when Arthas 'purged' the city.

4. Describe the incident in childhood that you think most affected you.
It would be when I discovered my affinity for The Light. It was...kind of embarrassing in hind sight and was how I met my rival-turned friend, Stanford. Long story short: Alcohol does wonders on your aim.

5. Describe your mother and how you feel about her.
Distant. Always tending to her duties at her bakery. It wasn't a very big or successful shop, though she got it to where it was from devoting all her time to it. She was nice enough during dinner or on outings.

6. Describe your father and how you feel about him.
Also...kind of distant. He was a Knight serving in the defense of Stratholme, though at the time before the 'Purge' those duties only extended to training squires and Silver Hand recruits. He never manifested any connection to The Light, so when I showed promise he sent me off to train under the local Bishop. It was my decision to later join the Silver Hand and he couldn't have been more proud.

7. What are you favorite pastimes?
I've always been a bit of a book worm, so, reading. I've taken to patrolling well enough and actually enjoy it as well. Also, ah...I have an interest in Geology so...um...I collect...uh...rocks...

8. What person do you think has most influenced you?
Stanford, easily. It's one thing to have a friend and another to have a rival. He was both and pushed me like no one else has. I mean, I pushed back, sometimes, but he'd always be right there behind me. I kind of wanted to be like him and still do, to a degree.

9. How do you feel about sex?
It's...ah...been awhile...

10. What are your people's religious beliefs?
The Light, mostly.

11. How far do you go along with these beliefs, and how important are they to you?
While I know the scripture and try to follow it, I don't adhere to any of the tenants like glue. They are stepping stones in the right direction, guideposts so you can keep to a straight path.

12. How are your people organized and led?
I can't speak to the actual organization of our people, but I do know we are ruled by a King.

13. How do you feel about the leadership, and how important is it to you?
I don't know the King personally, obviously, but I'd say the way things are run is just fine. I serve the Stormwind City Guard, so it is kind of important I agree with what I'm protecting, which I do.

14. What is your philosophy of life?
Take everything one step at a time, always moving forward.

15. If you could have any tangible thing in the world you wanted, what would it be?
I already had to let him go.

16. Have you any physical difficulties?
Physical? Not really thanks to the Guard and a few friends. Mental? I think crippling self-doubt is appropriate.

17. What kind of education have you had, and how did you feel about it?
The Church taught me most of what I know, though the Silver Hand promoted basic studies outside of it. Everything else I've picked up over the past decade or two.

18. How do you think other people react to you as a person?
Warmly enough. I don't go out of my way to offend people and I often find what others say interesting.

19. What are you proudest of?
Saving those I could throughout the Third War.

20. What are you most ashamed of?
Failing someone when he needed me most.

21. What is your deepest fear?
Failing others.

22. How do you feel about food?
I will eat you out of house and home. Channeling the Light is incredibly taxing. It's no surprise my appetite is so large.

23. What makes you feel good?
Ending the day having done more than I thought I could handle and spending time with friends over a few drinks.

24. What do you dream about?
Seeing loved ones one last time.

25. What do you try hardest to avoid?
Being alone.

26. What makes you angry? How do you react when you're angry?
If someone refuses to better themselves and continues to do so, my patience with them wears thin. Also, being tricked by friends is a sure way to set me off. Typically I vent my rage with silent brooding. It's a skill.

27. How do you react to your people's relationship with the world around you?
Uh...I've never really considered it before. Sorry.

28. What one person had the greatest affect on you as a child?
As a child? No one sticks out to me. I guess I can consider the local Bishop, as he and his Priests/Priestesses taught me in the Light alongside other Initiates.

29. How athletic are you?
I keep in good shape. I'm not bulky by any stretch of the word, but I've got a decent amount of muscle. Enough to have a 'chest' and 'shapely backside' according to others, anyway.

30. How methodical are you?
I pay very close attention to small details and anything I deem important goes straight to my notes. I'd say I am.

31. What are your chief taboos?
Never tamper with the mind of another without consent or in self-defense.

32. How much traveling have you done?
In hindsight, a lot. I followed Jaina to Kalimdor, helping those of us who survived the Stratholme 'Purge' as well as those who chose to fight.

33. Describe a situation in which you behaved courageously.
The first patrolling exercise as an Initiate of the Silver Hand went south when we were ambushed by robed figures who I later found out to be apart of the Cult of the Damned. Stanford and I fought to buy time for our other Initiates to regroup and await an order from out Knight-Instructor. The call for retreat was sounded. Only Stanford and I were left alive to hear it.

34. Do you see yourself as a self-centered person?
Not really. I enjoy putting others first.

35. Do you see yourself as a loving person?
I was and probably still am.

36. Do you see yourself as a popular person?
Likeable for sure. Popular? I *am* known as a Punching Bag around the Garrison. I don't think anyone's been to the infirmary more...

37. Do you see yourself having a potentially important influence on the world?
On the world-at-large? Light no. On the world of a few individuals? I already have.

38. What is the purpose of your race?
To strive forward.

39. How artistic are you?
I've...doodled a little in my notes...

40. How do you feel about material things?
Little things like personal mementos are fine. The essentials are fine. Anything more, I feel, is pointless extra baggage. I might be biased considering I spent a good portion of my life moving around with the refugees from Stratholme.

41. What are your plans for the future?
Settle some personal demons.

42. How idealistic are you?
Everyone has the potential to better themselves.

43. How realistic are you?
Enough to place facts over assumption.

44. How successful are you?
I don't consider myself to be, overall. Reference 'crippling self down' somewhere in a previous answer.

45. Name the four things you object to in other people.
Refusal to face facts, blind adherence to only one side of an argument, inflexibility, and selfishness.

46. Name the four things you object to in yourself.
Self-doubt, my libido, hesitance, and a little hypocrisy.

47. How gullible are you?
Replace 'Gullible' with 'Trusting' and I'll answer with 'Very much so."

48. How intelligent are you?
Perceptive is a better word. There are many other ways to define 'Intelligence'.

49. Does the end justify the means?
In only a few cases, yes.

50. How attractive are you physically?
I wouldn't say that I am. ((He is...))

51. Do you believe there is anything worth dying for? What experiences led you to this conclusion?
He is already dead.

52. What do you worry about the most?
How I can better be there for a friend.

53. What makes life worth living for you?
For awhile, it wasn't. Things change though.

54. What is the difference between good and evil?
Intent.

55. What kind of person would you like to be?
I want to be the shoulder for people to lean on, the pillar of strength they can go to and feel safe, secure.

56. What ideas in the history of the world as you know it should be forgotten?
Nothing. We wouldn't get to where we are now by forgetting a mistake.

57. What changes taking place in the world as you know it should be encouraged,
which discouraged?

The exchange of culture should be encouraged, especially with the Pandaren. As for something to discourage, I would say all the gold spent on war efforts. It can be put to use elsewhere, especially with this 'treaty' I've heard about.

58. What ideas now popular among the people you know do you consider
potentially dangerous?

Haven't heard anything concerning.

59. What do you think is worth knowing?
Someone else.

60. How do you feel about violence?
You need to be prepared to handle and deal it. I am not.

61. Do you have any children? Describe them if you do.
No.

Postby Niala » April 1st, 2014, 7:01 am

((An OOC note first! This bleak view on everything isn't normal for Niala. Once she's better, I'll probably do another of these for her normal optimistic nature! :D))

1. List four things you like very much.
The wilds, Solarity (My animal companion), home, and those dear to me.

2. List four things you dislike very much.
Arrogance, blind faith, emotions, and... love.

3. Did you have a happy childhood?
Yes.

4. Describe the incident in childhood that you think most affected you.
Loving parents.

5. Describe your mother and how you feel about her.
She was kind. Did everything she could for me.

6. Describe your father and how you feel about him.
Had a temper and couldn't control it well. He cared for me, but couldn't show it well.

7. What are your favorite pastimes?
Spending time with those dear to me. Studying the arcane. Fighting on the front lines. Those are normally some of my favorite pastimes, but... lately, I have nothing. I only try to keep it together.

8. What person do you think has most influenced you?
There is no single person, but... those who have most changed me... Probably those I have loved since my kind joined the Alliance. If it weren't a person, my answer would be very different.

9. How do you feel about sex?
Only with those I love. If that's met, then I'm always ready.

10. What are your people's religious beliefs?
We follow under the High Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind. We worship our goddess Elune.

11. How far do you go along with these beliefs, and how important are they to you?
I worship Elune and heed the words of our High Priestess. Elune is very important to me.

12. How are your people organized and led?
We are led by the High Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind and through his relation to our High Priestess, Malfurion Stormrage. We live in a rather open society, but we are distrustful of many new things due to our past experiences in new things such as the events leading up to the Sundering.

13. How do you feel about the leadership, and how important is it to you?
Tyrande is a good leader. Malfurion has some potential, but he has made grave mistakes that take away much of my respect for him.

14. What is your philosophy of life?
...As of late... “In the end, you're all alone. In the end, there is only agony.” I think... it used to be along the lines of “Live it to the fullest.”

15. If you could have any tangible thing in the world you wanted, what would it be?
...There's nothing tangible I want. I only want my torment to end.

16. Have you any physical difficulties?
I wish it were physical. No.

17. What kind of education have you had, and how did you feel about it?
I had extensive education among my people before the Sundering. We had universities.

18. How do you think other people react to you as a person?
Hatred. Disgust. Anger. Betrayal. False friendship.

19. What are you proudest of?
My work within the Alliance. My missions as an ambassador. My aid to the front lines. My recent work in the arcane. Nothing else.

20. What are you most ashamed of?
Being a nuisance to everyone near me.

21. What is your deepest fear?
Myself.

22. How do you feel about food?
I like it. I like cooking it. Someone else may poison it.

23. What makes you feel good?
Those dear to me. Nothing else. Often not even them.

24. What do you dream about?
Horror. Betrayal. My death. The death of others.

25. What do you try hardest to avoid?
Losing myself to the whispers.

26. What makes you angry? How do you react when you're angry?
Small things now. Sometimes I lash out. Sometimes I talk back. Sometimes I simply stay quiet. It depends on how unreasonably angry I am.

27. How do you react to your people's relationship with the world around you?
It depends on the issue. Sometimes I feel betrayed. Sometimes proud. Sometimes annoyed.

28. What one person had the greatest affect on you as a child?
Probably my mother.

29. How athletic are you?
Extremely. I'm a huntress. A beast master.

30. How methodical are you?
Usually I don't bother with being methodical if I can get away with it. If the situation demands it, I can be very methodical.

31. What are your chief taboos?
Losing myself. Cruelty to others. I'm sure I have others, but cannot think of them at the moment.

32. How much traveling have you done?
I am from before the Sundering. I have done immense amounts. I have seen lands that now lay below the sea.

33. Describe a situation in which you behaved courageously.
Right now? Trusting anyone. Or trying to at least. Overall, fighting on the front lines in Northrend and other campaigns.

34. Do you see yourself as a self-centered person?
Now, I try not to be. Normally, I try to be selfless.

35. Do you see yourself as a loving person?
Very much so. Seeing as love comes hand-in-hand with torment, it is much to my regret.

36. Do you see yourself as a popular person?
No. I am a nuisance. Everyone wishes to be rid of me.

37. Do you see yourself having a potentially important influence on the world?
For better or worse, I can see a potential for massive influence.

38. What is the purpose of your race?
A race does not have purpose. Only individuals do.

39. How artistic are you?

40. How do you feel about material things?
I enjoy them greatly. I will live without them. I'm a huntress.

41. What are your plans for the future?
Try to live. Try to find happiness. Try to find love that doesn't end in torment.

42. How idealistic are you?
Normally, I am very idealistic.

43. How realistic are you?
...I'm not sure these days. I think I normally am when I'm serious. Though, I'm optimistic.

44. How successful are you?
In many ways, very. In others, I am pitiful.

45. Name the four things you object to in other people.
Betrayal. Refusal to ever place trust in me. Lack of loyalty. Lies.

46. Name the four things you object to in yourself.
Paranoia, anger, weak will, and my emotions.

47. How gullible are you?
When I am relaxed, I can be quite gullible. When serious, not very.

48. How intelligent are you?
Very. May not always seem it.

49. Does the end justify the means?
Sometimes.

50. How attractive are you physically?
I have been told I am quite attractive by more than a few people. In fact, during a game of Hearthstone earlier today, General Katelle Larmont of the Imperial Military said I was quite attractive and even asked me if I'm normally as “inexplicably hot” as I was during our game.

51. Do you believe there is anything worth dying for? What experiences led you to this conclusion?
If there is no choice, yes. I don't intend to die if I can help it. I feel there are methods to ignore mortality. I'm more useful to causes worth dying for if I'm alive. Though, as of late, I feel as though ending my torment might be worth death. I'm... not sure.

52. What do you worry about the most?
Losing myself to the whispers. Losing those I love.

53. What makes life worth living for you?
Very. Very. Little. Perhaps those I love.

54. What is the difference between good and evil?
Perspective.

55. What kind of person would you like to be?
Kind. Trusting. Loved.

56. What ideas in the history of the world as you know it should be forgotten?
The ideas that float through my head. Also, the idea that warlocks are all rude or evil. Suffering is all their path has. Don't add to it.

57. What changes taking place in the world as you know it should be encouraged,
which discouraged?
Peace should be encouraged. Distrust should be discouraged.

58. What ideas now popular among the people you know do you consider
potentially dangerous?
Blind faith. Hidden leadership.

59. What do you think is worth knowing?
Everything.

60. How do you feel about violence?
I prefer to avoid it. Sometimes, it must be used.

61. Do you have any children? Describe them if you do.

Brinnea's Response

Postby RiktheRed21 » April 1st, 2014, 9:43 pm

1. List four things you like very much.
The color blue, the crunch of fresh snow under my feet, walks around town, and books of adventure and magic.

2. List four things you dislike very much.
People lacking empathy, injustice in any form, disrespect, and my inherent nature to kill as a death knight.

3. Did you have a happy childhood?
Not particularly, I blame my father for that, although I do have a few fairly fond memories of my mother, and only one or two of him.

4. Describe the incident in childhood that you think most affected you.
The night my mother took me away from Father. He came in drunk, as usual, and demanded a warm supper. My mother was reading to me, as she often did, and told him to wait or make it himself. He got angry and used magic to strike her, leaving a burn under her right eye. It was the first time he’d used his spells to hurt her, and the first time I managed to use a spell of my own. I froze him in place, and we packed and left as quick as possible.

5. Describe your mother and how you feel about her.
She was the warmest person I’ve ever met. It fit her hair, really, that long tangle of wild red often reminded me of a cozy fire in our hearth on a winter’s night. She was the real parent to me, and inspired me to do the work I do today.

6. Describe your father and how you feel about him.
He was a vile drunk and an abusive mess of a man. I would be lying to say he had no redeeming qualities, though; he wasn’t always a drunken mess. When I was quite young, he taught me to read so he could teach me magic. He would point to the heroes of stories and tell me I could be as great as them. That was always his fascination, being great and wealthy and well-loved. That’s why when the reality set in that he wasn’t as respected for his deeds in the Second War as he thought he was, he lost his way. I regret not being able to save him, but part of me is just glad I haven’t seen him since my mother and I left.

7. What are you favorite pastimes?
Practicing with my swords and reading diversionary books.

8. What person do you think has most influenced you?
My mother, quite clearly.

9. How do you feel about sex?
I haven’t given it much thought since I became undead. After that, the urge never came to me again.

10. What are your people's religious beliefs?
As a human, most of my people believe in the Light, but as a member of the Twilight Empire, I know people of varying faiths and degrees of practice.

11. How far do you go along with these beliefs, and how important are they to you?
Not particularly important, although I have some memories of Mother taking me to the cathedral in Gilneas or the chapel in our hamlet outside Andorhal. She was very religious, but since she died, I haven’t thought on it much.

12. How are your people organized and led?
My people are of the Empire. We are organized into two main branches, the Citizenry and the Military. As a soldier, I have no official power, and must follow the instructions of all officers.

13. How do you feel about the leadership, and how important is it to you?
I respect and obey my officers to the letter, and encourage others to do the same. I trust the Empire enough to put my faith in them.

14. What is your philosophy of life?
All deeds should lead to the ultimate good, as in, peace and prosperity for all people, especially those who hate me.

15. If you could have any tangible thing in the world you wanted, what would it be?
((The line is a messy scrawl of crossed-out words)).

16. Have you any physical difficulties?
I previously had my vocal cords cut, so I communicated via telepathy for a time, until I received special treatment for the wound.

17. What kind of education have you had, and how did you feel about it?
Minimal, mostly reading and writing. My husband, Parigan taught me a few things he’d learned from his own education. I wished I’d had the chance to learn more about magic before my death in Gilneas.

18. How do you think other people react to you as a person?
Recently I’ve been wearing my armor almost all the time, to improve my stamina. The gear is rather vicious-looking and my own demeanor is usually distant and cold, so I can come off as anti-social. I’ve tried to open up as I used to, but I’ve always been a shy person.

19. What are you proudest of?
((Another line of scratches, then)); Doing my duty for the Empire.

20. What are you most ashamed of?
My lust for death as a death knight.

21. What is your deepest fear?
Disappointing my peers or being responsible for their downfall.

22. How do you feel about food?
I miss being able to taste it. I don’t even feel satisfied after a meal since I became undead.

23. What makes you feel good?
Unfortunately, fighting and killing.

24. What do you dream about?
((The line is left blank))

25. What do you try hardest to avoid?
Failure.

26. What makes you angry? How do you react when you're angry?
Disrespect for my officers and friends. I tend to jump off the handle a bit, but I’ve improved my self-control quite a bit since my conversion to being a death knight.

27. How do you react to your people's relationship with the world around you?
I do my best to make it positive.

28. What one person had the greatest affect on you as a child?
My mother.

29. How athletic are you?
In fair shape, largely thanks to being an undead and lacking for pain.

30. How methodical are you?
I plan everything before acting, except when my bloodlust takes over.

31. What are your chief taboos?
I used to have the ability to enter people’s thoughts. I toiled a long time in isolation to get over my power addiction, as well as my bloodlust.

32. How much traveling have you done?
I’ve been all over the Eastern Kingdoms, Northrend, and Pandaria.

33. Describe a situation in which you behaved courageous.
I don’t care to boast, but I suppose there have been a few times where my passion could be considered courageous.

34. Do you see yourself as a self-centered person?
No.

35. Do you see yourself as a loving person?
I try, but life hasn’t made it easy.

36. Do you see yourself as a popular person?
No.

37. Do you see yourself having a potentially important influence on the world?
I try.

38. What is the purpose of your race?
As a human, I try to make the world better for humanity, but my work extends to all races.

39. How artistic are you?
I’ve never picked up a brush.

40. How do you feel about material things?
Besides some people I can’t live without, I don’t get attached.

41. What are your plans for the future?
Much the same, working for the Empire to see the world improve.

42. How idealistic are you?
I use my ideals as a starting point for all my actions.

43. How realistic are you?
I take everything I can into consideration, but I don’t let what people tell me is impossible get me down.

44. How successful are you?
Not very, but I still live and fight for what is right.

45. Name the four things you object to in other people.
Selfishness, need for power, murder for the sake of self-benefit, and thievery.

46. Name the four things you object to in yourself.
My bloodlust, my tendency for gullibility, my lack of education, and weakness that slows me down.

47. How gullible are you?
I can be easily tricked by a superior intellect, but my equals find me a challenge.

48. How intelligent are you?
Practically intelligent, but I lack book-smarts or formal education.

49. Does the end justify the means?
Only in particular circumstances.

50. How attractive are you physically?
I’ve had compliments for my red hair and pale face of fine complexion, but I don’t find myself anything to boast about.

51. Do you believe there is anything worth dying for? What experiences led you to this conclusion?
Love is worth it, as is peace for many, or for those greater than myself. I’ve seen many a valiant hero or heroine perish to save others they loved or respected beyond measure, and they’ve all passed on with peaceful minds or even smiles on their faces.

52. What do you worry about the most?
Dissention and betrayal.

53. What makes life worth living for you?
Seeing when my work has actually put people in a better state of life.

54. What is the difference between good and evil?
Good can be felt and dealt, we all know what feels good for us, although empathy is a developed skill, not one we are born with. Evil can be felt and dealt in much the same way, but it is about taking, whereas good is about sharing.

55. What kind of person would you like to be?
A fearless follower or wise leader.

56. What ideas in the history of the world as you know it should be forgotten?
Prejudice and hatred.

57. What changes taking place in the world as you know it should be encouraged,
which are discouraged?
Empathy and humility.

58. What ideas now popular among the people you know do you consider
potentially dangerous?
Pride and nationalism.

59. What do you think is worth knowing?
Every person has emotion, and lives. No one should want war, but many times they are forced into it, which is why killing should never be encouraged, even as a last resort.

60. How do you feel about violence?
It cannot be truly justified without infringing on someone else’ freedom, but sometimes it is necessary.

61. Do you have any children? Describe them if you do.
((A few fainter scratches appear under the last question. In trembled script, two lines are written)): Her name was Hong. She had the look of my mother.
"I am the Night!" -Brinnea, Rikthered, Cynthya, Orgog, Kazarak.....

1. List four things you like very much.

My daggers, the last rasp of a dying man, blood, the color black

2. List four things you dislike very much.

Questions. Play nice. Fine. Intrusive questions, complex contracts, pirates, goblins.

3. Did you have a happy childhood?

Wonderfully happy. Don't lie to the nice people. No, really. It was very happy. You're a psychopathic killer with a mysterious voice in her head. Doesn't mean my childhood was unahppy. What was it? Daddy issues? Mommy? We're getting there. Did you even read the whole form yet?

4. Describe the incident in childhood that you think most affected you.

No. Come on, tell them! No.

5. Describe your mother and how you feel about her.

She was a lovely woman. A Sentinel, quite devoted to her work and to me. I never truly wanted for much of anything in my youth, and growing up in a military family gave me quite a lot of early exposure to combat training.

6. Describe your father and how you feel about him.

I never really knew him. You know how druids are.

7. What are you favorite pastimes?

Work.

8. What person do you think has most influenced you?

I call her Falore. Even though I'm not your sister. Does it matter? You're closer than any sister would ever be.

9. How do you feel about sex?

It is what it is.

10. What are your people's religious beliefs?

We follow the Goddess.

11. How far do you go along with these beliefs, and how important are they to you?

I follow the Goddess.

12. How are your people organized and led?

Prior to what your kind call the Third War, we were a heavily matriarchal society. The men were mostly druids, and they resided in the Emerald Dream. As such the High Priestess was left to lead us, and the women were left to handle everything. Now the men have returned and they are slowly reintegrating into our society, even taking positions in the army.

13. How do you feel about the leadership, and how important is it to you?

That would not be proper to discuss.

14. What is your philosophy of life?

Everyone's ends eventually.

15. If you could have any tangible thing in the world you wanted, what would it be?

Another dagger. Don't you have enough? One can never have too many friends.

16. Have you any physical difficulties?

No.

17. What kind of education have you had, and how did you feel about it?

Plenty. As was said, my mother was a Sentinel, so I had plenty of early exposure to combat training, which has served me well through life.

18. How do you think other people react to you as a person?

I often hope they don't react all.

19. What are you proudest of?

Pass. It's no fun if you don't brag about things! No.

20. What are you most ashamed of?

Shame is for other people.

21. What is your deepest fear?

... Pass.

22. How do you feel about food?

Food is food.

23. What makes you feel good?

Work. Blood, blood! Shut up.

24. What do you dream about?

Tea and crumpets. And murder and death! Mostly tea and crumpets.

25. What do you try hardest to avoid?

Pirates. And guards. Mostly pirates.

26. What makes you angry? How do you react when you're angry?

There are many things which draw my ire, but very few that I would bother to act upon.

27. How do you react to your people's relationship with the world around you?

Pass.

28. What one person had the greatest affect on you as a child?

I could swear we did this one earlier. It was me, wasn't it?! No.

29. How athletic are you?

Extremely.

30. How methodical are you?

Very.

31. What are your chief taboos?

I have none.

32. How much traveling have you done?

More than most.

33. Describe a situation in which you behaved courageously.

None come to mind. There was that one time you didn't kill the guy and told your employer to stuff it. That wasn't courageous; that was just good business. Oh right! Because then your mark gave you more money to kill the other guy! Exactly.

34. Do you see yourself as a self-centered person?

Yes.

35. Do you see yourself as a loving person?

No.

36. Do you see yourself as a popular person?

No.

37. Do you see yourself having a potentially important influence on the world?

What would be the point of living if your actions had no impact on the world?

38. What is the purpose of your race?

I have no thoughts to offer.

39. How artistic are you?

Define art. Yes, does painting the walls red with blood count? Subtle as always, Falore.

40. How do you feel about material things?

I like them.

41. What are your plans for the future?

The same as my plans for right now.

42. How idealistic are you?

Somewhat.

43. How realistic are you?

Very.

44. How successful are you?

Extremely.

45. Name the four things you object to in other people.

Greed, blood, archaic attitudes, impatience. What was that middle one? Archaic attitudes?

46. Name the four things you object to in yourself.

Swords, daggers, axes, polearms. I think the question meant things you didn't like about yourself. Then they should word it more clearly.

47. How gullible are you?

No.

48. How intelligent are you?

How intelligent do you think I am? You have a voice living inside your head. That means I might be insane, not that I'm not intelligent.

49. Does the end justify the means?

The only way the end gets into a person is through the means. I think that was meant in a philosophical sense. I thought my answer was very philosophical.

50. How attractive are you physically?

Very.

51. Do you believe there is anything worth dying for? What experiences led you to this conclusion?

Of course. We kill people for lots of reasons!

52. What do you worry about the most?

Pirates. And getting caught! Pretty much just pirates.

53. What makes life worth living for you?

So many things. The rush of blood when we slit a throat! So very many things.

54. What is the difference between good and evil?

Gold.

55. What kind of person would you like to be?

I am who I want to be.

56. What ideas in the history of the world as you know it should be forgotten?

No comment.

57. What changes taking place in the world as you know it should be encouraged, which discouraged?

I thrive in chaos. Peace is bad for profits.

58. What ideas now popular among the people you know do you consider potentially dangerous?

None.

59. What do you think is worth knowing?

How to sail your ship through bad weather. A mark's schedule, where he will be and when. Nice, predictable targets.

*Laughs*

61. Do you have any children? Describe them if you do.

No.

1. List four things you like very much.
Breaking stone. Smelting, and pouring molten metal into a form. Tempering metals with blows. Polishing metal to a brilliant luster

2. List four things you dislike very much.
Politics. Sycophants. Boasters. Traitors. Those are the four stages of the nithing's path.

3. Did you have a happy childhood?
Very.

4. Describe the incident in childhood that you think most affected you.
Once, I left a wooden toy battleaxe in the yard behind our family quarters. Mother found it and brought it to Father. He seized me by the throat and lifted me into the air, where I kicked and strangled without relief. He beat me in the face with the wooden axe until it splintered and broke, and my face was torn and bleeding. Then he told me to never, ever abandon a weapon in the field again. It means that one is disarmed, and an enemy could find your own weapon and use it against you or one of your comrades. He dropped me to the ground unconscious. I was left there to recover by myself and make my own way back to our quarters.

5. Describe your mother and how you feel about her.
She was observant, attentive and loyal. I respect and love her. She is dead now.

12. How are your people organized and led?
My race: poorly and deceitfully. My clan: with determination and honor.

13. How do you feel about the leadership, and how important is it to you?
I will live to see the ravens glut themselves on Vol'jin's rotting face! I will laugh as they jab their beaks at the sky, and his bleary eyes and wormlike lips drop down their throats!

14. What is your philosophy of life?
Endure. Prevail.

15. If you could have any tangible thing in the world you wanted, what would it be?
My second; my heart.
