Name Thomas Mountian
Religion/God/dess Worshiped:* No paticular God/Goddess at the moment
Occupation: Constable, Valermoore City Guard
Physical Appearance Brown eyes, brown hair.
*Personality: He is normally friendly towards those he meets, willing to help out those who are in trouble, and come to the aid of someone who is being attacked, even when he is off duty. He longs to meet a Human girl of his own age one day and settle down with her. He is unforgiving, however, of liars and criminals (except when the crime committed is so petty that few would even consider it a crime) and speficly joined the City Guard to fight crime rather then for money. He has a burning desire for promotion but is able to keep it hidden.
Magics He has limited fire magics, just enough to make a small amount of someoneÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s skin or clothing burst into flames for a few seconds, which is a great advantage in a fight.
Strengths/Good Qualities: He is kind and helpful to people, is a good swordfighter, and has a burning desire to do the right thing.
Weaknesses/Bad Qualities: He never learned any of the hand-to hand martial arts, so if he loses his weapon in a combat he is likely to be overpowered quickly unless he can cast a fire spell. He is unable to tell a lie without blushing scarlet, and his desire to do the right thing can sometimes lead to him annoying people including fellow City Guards.
Belongings: Sword, dagger, baton, Valermoore City Guard uniform/armour, small book of the lesser Fire Spells, enough money to live on.
Thomas Mountian at birth seemed to be one of the least likely people to be a City Guard ever. He was born to a wealthy coastal crime family known to outsiders as the Tens. The Tens were known for their habit of being split into loose ten-person cells, so that if some of them were killed or captured by City Guards or vigilantes, the others would survive. They also extracted 10% of the profits of those under their rule, maiming or killing those who refused to pay tribute. It was not a lot but when everyone paid it, it added up.
From birth he was taught to hate the City Guards. At the age of ten he started going with other Tens to collect tribute money. At the age of thirteen his father paid for him to go to the Isle of Adepts to be taught Fire Magic, and whilst he never quite reached full Mage level, he learnt enougth of it to be able to set people's clothing in fire in places.His father warned him, however, to be careful not to use the magic in public unless he had to,for fear of bringing mobs of vigilantes and powerful clerical mages down upon him.
He seemed all set for a life of violence and extortion until in a fight with a rival criminal gang, the powerful Red Hands, his brother Rufus, died in his arms after getting a dagger wound in the heart. He decided to turn his back on his entire family amd the night after his brother's funeral and burial, he fled to the capital city of Valermoore, a week's travel away, keeping warm by night by lighting a fire with his magic, telling nobody in his family where he had gone.
Seeking redemption for a life of crime, he enlisted as a lowly constable in the Valermoore City Guards, where he placed his life in danger in the service of the law. Unlike others, he refused to take bribes from anyone to let them escape, drop criminal charges or reveal the indentity of informants and witnesses, nor did he fit up the innocent by planting banned weapons and/or banned magical books on them.He didn't tell lies in court either.
He became nicknamed "Holy Mountian" because of his goodness,and none of his fellow City Guards knew of his wicked past.
Roleplay Notes : He cannot tell lies, or fight well without magic or a weapon. He can also be highly irritating to fellow PC's at times.But he is basicly a good and loyal person.He will not want to get involved in crime.
