Sentinel The Ranger

By:

A legendary ranger from the North, all fear or admire, hate or love, but both have respect for him. He has no home nor hideout, a traveler always. His age is undetermined or his name, but he is called Sentinel, silent and deadly always. He is cunning and pragmatic, in quests he is an excellant tracker and has deadly accurcy with his bow. A master of the sword.

Special Equipment:

The Blade of Anawaith, a sword who’s making is shroaded in mystery, the Ranger Lords of the Guild of Anawaith say that it was given to them by the Swordsmith Lords, people who were master of twisting magic to steel
He has a black composite long bow and a quiver with very sharp heads.
A long hunting knife that he primarily uses as a throwing weapon

Appearance:

He usually wears a fitting black tunic or ash grey comfortably fitting him; he wears black pants or ash grey pants; over that he wears tight brigandine leather armour and white fur ankle length boots. He wears a dark green cloak with the hood usually up and when he shows his face it is usally cool and calm, soothing a women who sees it.
He is about 5’11, with his hair ending at shoulder length and lets it hand, his hair being a dark blond, shining when the rays of the sun hit it. His face sharp and elvish with his ears pointed and his body slim but well toned. His eyes are round and show always poundering, those emerald orbs of his.

Background:

His childhood life is hazy, no one knows. He was found on the doorsteps of a Ranger Guild Anarwaith, raised by the Elder and there raised as one to be great. When he was old enough he left the guild, a solitary figure he was a mercenary for a while fighting border wars and soon legend grew around him, of his skills and abilities, he never lost a battle, always leading his men to victory, but never accepting friends, people fought to have him on his side, but soon the legends of him were enhanced, people thinking him a god whereas he wasn’t. Soon he had powerful enemies and no friends, but none could kill him, getting past every obstacle in his way, he was honored and praised and hated. The Sentinel has always been modest on his skills, and he hides behind the mask of his fame, no one seeing the true him.

The True History is known by no one, save the Seeing Gods and Demons. Sentinel was not born he was made. Once ago The God of Elementals, Athen, was maimed and almost destoryed by his fellow gods for having used the elementals as a driving army in their Godly affairs, having fallen to earth he came a young women and in his need to survive put his power and soul into the elf-girl’s womb, for she so happened to be pregnant by the Prince of Abasil. The baby was born Damien Mordred to Wood elves and part of the Royal Family of Abasil, and Damien was heir to the throne while his father was king.

Demons seeing their chance, sensing that great and terrible change would happen to them if Damien was allowed to love, flooded into the place and killed everyone inside, except Damien, who was hidden by his mother in a cupboard. As the demons left the room a strong wind came and appeared a powerful druid who was told by the elementals that this would happen. Finding the baby he fled east.

Damien Mordred is his name in the common language, but his elvish name is Elassar Anwanamane, meaning "Light of the West." For the High Seer of Abasil, Conan Highblade, saw that when Damien became king he would bring enlightenment to his people.

Sentinel’s training was beyond brutal and harsh, but Sentinel would make it even harder on himself, working harder and longer then most of the other rangers. At day was training and like his ancestors, he was extremely well with the longbow, but somehow found himself in love with the blade. At dusk when practic ended he would learn philosphy and magic from the Elder of Anawaith.

At this point, when Sentinel was in his youth of adolesence he learned he had inate magic, but not as powerful as his biological father’s magic. He could do minimal healing to cuts and small gashes by merest touch and could hear and feel beasts around him. He grew popwerful with empath powers and could very soon control animals. His favoriate is his hawk, Soren, who is able to send messages to him from the guild and bring messages to the guild. He has even taught his bird to be able to look out for him ahead and so he and his hawk become one-to-one, their minds linked.

Sentinel’s personality is confusing, but one word to sum him up is moody. Very, very moody. He is very volatile and unpredictable and loves to trick his enemies by being so seeing pleasure in it. He sees himself as a person cast adrift into the wide and world and has many times of feeling small and insignifigant. His personality doesn’t help him when to be a required, that he must be confident and trusting. Sentinel is neither.

Sentinel is currently a council member of the city of Elimirth, having made it on due to his place in the Anawaith Guild as a Ranger Lord. But due to his rustic behavior, he is rarely in Anfalas and appoints people to due his job there. Being a concil member though, does have its advantages for he is wealthy and has many homes built all over Anfalas if things go ill for him, safe houses where servants live and work and are paid through Sentinel’s spies who run across the realms for him.

Okay. The preview shows promise, and intrigues me. You could do a lot with that idea. But "Unknown" is not a background. Nor is it a name. You need to give the character some depth, and at least some sort of background. Go look at the highly rated submissions, and you'll see what we're kind of aiming at. Like I said, the preview is intriguing. But that is the only part of this that shows promise. Therefore, I must give this

Ok, first thing first. *Looks at Scrasamax and Captain Penguin* "Ditto" Is not a helpful comment. Now onto the present character.

How can a character be legendary and not have a name or a background? He has to come from somewhere, there has to be some record of his past deeds. What do people call him? If they dont know his real name they must call him something for him to be Legendary. And if he has such typical elven features, what is there to distinguish him from any other tall male elf with rustic blonde hair who wears dark colors? Where did he get the scar?
"Unknown" Is not the right thing to put in background, unless he has no earthly clue of his own history and the world has been struck by some sort of spell of something that causes everyone to have the memory span of a goldfish.
Elaborate more on your character, I agree with Ria on the fact that the Preview shows alot of promise and potential.

I liked this until the end where we find this moody and unpredicatable character with no friends is on the City Council of Elimirth. ???? This totally does not fit your background story. Also, is he incapable of love due to his Elemental heritage or is he just inexperienced with it? Always nice to have another super-elf who no one can best but what is the point? I would expect a 5/5 character to have a fatal flaw or some weakness which doesn't necessarily mean he is weaker on the field of battle but maybe a point of confusion or lack of understanding in his personal life. This reads like a bio of the perfect child. Every parent wants to have an over-achieving and dedicated child who surpases everyone by working harder and studying twice as hard. Maybe he doesn't really try harder but he comes by it naturally due to his Elemental genetics. Maybe he is kind of a PRICK who likes to show others how superior he is to everyone by making others look foolish. For Example: He has elementally enhanced strength and quickness so he bests the sword training master on his first day of class and throws him bodily thru the air into the pigs sty. Maybe he thinks the trainer deserved it because of a wrong that he commited against another student. When the other students thank him for his efforts, Damien spits at them and calls them weak and spineless.

Good but I was hoping for a bit more. That is all.

Okay, I see the problem. Will work on it and it'll take me some time to substitute for the problems.

I wonder why we have such a wide variety of votes on this character... Some people say it's terrible, other's say it's good (notably, Beowulf)... Are some of us seeing one thing and others another?

Well the rating might be low but the number of votes speak for itself. It is immensly popular :) A bit like the early Terminator movies... They always got reeeeally bad critics here in europe, but everyone watched them.
