Ginford Lena

By:

A lovable old traveller with a voice that can make stories come alive.

Appearance:

Standing at about 5’6” he is in reasonable condition thanks to his constant travelling.
Ginford’s hair is grey and rather thick for a man of his age. Only reaching shoulder length Ginford’s hair is usually tick back in a loose ponytail with stray bits of hair stick out here and there.

Due to failing eyesight, Ginford is almost always squinting, but by just by looking at the mans eyes and seeing the sparkle, you can tell that his mind is still sharp.

Ginford’s most prized procession is his carefully trimmed grey beard; which he grew it in order to try to hide his weak chin. This was a very wise decision as the beard fit in almost perfectly with his long hooked nose and heavy eyebrows.
Comfort would be the key word when describing the clothes normally worn by Ginford. He enjoys fitting into the typical Bard outfits, with flowing, old and worn robes that have obviously been unskilfully patched up a number of times, overlaying his baggy work pants. Sandals are the main type of shoe that Ginford wears, as any other shoes tend to give him blisters.

He has no cloak but will always been seen carrying his trusty shoulder bag filled with his personal belongings, he likes to believe that it is his lucky bag as even after many years it has never broken.



Background:

Born to a simple religious faming family, Ginford was a happy-go-lucky child and was taught to grow and harvest crops.
Living with a family that was decently well off, little Ginford grew into what was described as a cute young boy, in other words, he was very ugly but interesting boy. As a child, he leant that he had to reply on his wit and charm to get what he wanted.

When Ginford was 18 years old, he decided that he wanted to become more then a farmer, and went to visit local genius Mazza who was extremely gifted in the magic arts for her age, but very shy and didn’t leave her house very often. After convincing her to teach him about the world of magic, they soon fell in love. At 19, Ginford and Mazza were married, Ginford grew a beard in order to appear more attractive to his wife.

When Ginford was 30, he was proficient with many high level illusionist spells and some average element spells. With the help of his brothers, he owned a successful farm. It was at this age that he became a father for the first time.
A few months after his 40th birthday, Ginford awoke one morning to find that his wife and daughter were gone. A note left by Mazza told him that she had to leave on urgent business, but nothing else. After a few days of considering this information, Ginford packed up his belongings, left the farm with his brother, and set off to find his wife and child. Eight years later and he is still looking.



Roleplaying Notes:


He is a jolly sort of fellow who loves to talk more then life itself.

Motto:
“Everything will always end up alright in the end as long as you believe. “

Hmmm...
Allright. Good description with some minor syntax blips, although I'm not entirely sure what "Bard clothes" entails.
Background is not particularly interesting, but it is good. I'm not sure that the way in which he became so good at illusions is very well explained, even if you factor in Mazza's magical aptitude.
Thank you for not giving us a bunch of D&D stats. You described the spells well, in enough detail to tell what they do, but not too much.
Overall, average.

3/5.

A nice average character, an NPC to fill out an tavern or faire. It has a small hook to explain its travelling. The history gives some reason as to why he is a competent illusionist. It is an average entry in my mind.

A good filler character, and the positive outlook despite his loss is interesting.
