Maris is a thief. A common, low down, swarmy thief. It’s not her fault she’s that way, though. She’s nice, has a sweet personality, and is most likely to talk a person into giving ‘the poor, suffering little me’ their money, due to her limited skills as a pickpoket.

What she is skilled at, however, is very, very strange for a theif. She likes reading, and has collected many old manuscripts, and is sometimes saught out for just knowledge.

Special Equipment:

Maris doesn’t have a habit of carrying items around, due to her fear of them being stolen from her. As most of her manuscripts are precious, she locks them at home, and the only key is in a place none but she knows.


The first thing that stands out when one looks at Maris is her hair. It’s a light yellow, almost white, and strange compared to her dark, sun browned skin. Her hair is long, and it falls down to her waist. Usually it’s unkempt, and tied up messily at the back, but when it’s really necessary, she would braid it for neatness.

Maris is twenty four, and it shows. Her moderately harrowing childhood has marked her face and bearing in a dozen ways and means.

Maris is usually smiling over the discovery of a new manuscript or a new gain in the transfer of ownership of an item. She likes playing with the city kids, and sometimes teaches them a little of reading and writing as part of play.


No one knows exactly who Maris’s real father is. Her pale hair is unusual for those parts, and her eyes, a shade of blue almost matching the sky are extremely unusual, both these are features of northeners.

However, Maris’s mother, on the other hand, is fairly well known. So well known, in fact, that her mother associates with the upper society on a regular basis.

In fact, Maris’s mother is a whore. The only reason that Maris isn’t is as Maris appeared to have considerable skill with unlocking various things, and an obvious love of money.

Roleplaying Notes:

For plots, characters in search of information could go to Maris, but might have to bribe her. Maris is very, very close to her manuscripts, and prides herself on them. On the other hand, Maris could send characters to retrive things for her for a reward.

Regarding Maris’s father, it is possible that a character could sent a PC to search for her as well.

Definately a good start and I already like the character.

Fear of being stole from her? She is a thief. The safest place for things would be in her control I would think. And a key wouldn't be good enough if she is that paranoid. Needs a story behind it, stuff stolen in the past and such. There would probably and elaborate cache of her most valued possessions too since she loves the manuscripts. (Probably my pettiness but I like these kind of details about characters)

The rest is pretty good, I am probably picky because I like the character and want to know more. Got me hooked, now reel me in.

There is a start here - good bones but needs more flesh. She is interesting.

A few typos too, including in the summary.

Tämbourine is firmly placed on my back ,to unsheathe this sword I simply have to say "re clouse" meaning come to me or i can just reach over and unsheathe it the old fashioned way. This sword was created to my liking tambourine is made of raw-like metals I found in different regions as I begun to forge the metals together, I’ve noticed that the raw metal materials were different pieces to a wide variety of swords that were used the past and present, being so most blades have a sheer grey texture Tambourine’s blade became black as the depths of the oceans. The blade expands to 6” which weighs 426lbs the sapphire jewel placed on the tip of hilt (upper middle center of the base) it emits a aura texture of purple which weighs 24lbs the jewel is un-breakable it negates magic for tambourine has a mind of its own only belonging to me it finds a worthy opponents who doesn’t use magic or any type of power to their liking which I can agree with(who would want an opponent that abuses their powers to kill for no reason or to avoid dying by honor tambourine fights with honor and accepts its glory or defeat) I’ve named the sapphire Sophia because not only that its rare and radiant it resembles my burning passion for my love Sophia. I made the hilt to be a length of 15 inches its frame is created with fine katchin (very thick and heavy metal) it alone weighs 50 pounds its texture is black like mixture of, I made it to be a cruciform hilt so it has room for two hands. I I made the blades hilt aprox. 2”, the blade is double-edged but the left side of the swords frame can block and or negate ones attack if needed, it weights 500lbs making it nearly unmovable. To go up against this sword is to quickly find your own death. Tambourine is a twin sword to Terra.
