Full Character Name (s): Mel Paladino
Character Nickname (s): Mel, PD
Age / Date of Birth: 19/1-15-1986
Relatives: Both her parents are still alive. She has a twin sisterand older brother, a spinster aunt, another aunt and an uncle, and four cousins.
Class / Job: Dragoon/none yet
Gender: female
Height / Weight: 5'1"/115 lbs.
Other Physical Attributes / Appearance: She is a Dragonian, with smooth, glassy, pale indigo scales, silver talons, and golden-amber eyes. Her underside and wing membranes are lavender. She has two scars on her muzzle, an X-shaped scar through her left eye and three scratch scars under that, and a lightning bolt-like scar arching across her chest.
Mental Attributes / Personality: Mel has something of a dual personality, with her "lighter" side being optimistic, incredibly annoying, hyperactive (so it seems), and empathic. She may revert to her "darker" side when she is not feeling well—she turns cynical and listless, not to mention annoyingly apathetic. However, she can keep her temper under control, and if caught in a tight spot, will process all options before picking what seems to be the best way out. She can be philosophical, twisting words to fit her reasons, and will negotiate if she can do nothing. But if she sees no way of escape, or thinks it is too risky, she will stay quiet, assessing the situation all the while.
Background / History: Born in the city of Malismur, Mel grew up in an ever-changing environment...Her family moved around a lot, from slums to apartments to haunted houses. Along the way, she became an avid reader of books on biology, fantasy, and the paranormal, and she also took up music. When her family settled down in Ruthenia, she took up self-defense, magic and weaponry. She didn't display any exceptional talent, but she learned enough so that she could protect herself when she was in trouble. Nowadays she travels the world over, looking for odd jobs just for the heck of it—her family is well-off—and hoping to learn more...
Equipment: She wears a long-sleeved, white linen shirt, blue silk pants, and a yellow silk sash as a belt. Over her shirt, she has on a platinum breastplate edged in gold and with gold designs and an emerald, a helmet of the same materials and with 3 emeralds, and thick gold cuffs around her wrists and above her elbows. (The ones above her elbows are worn outside the shirt.) Attached to the cuffs, running from the wrist to the elbow, are bolts of red cloth. Around her tail are three gold rings and a small, scythe-shaped spike, also made of platinum, edged in gold, and bearing an emerald. For a weapon, she has a Lightning Sword.
Other Information: (I've done a drawing of her, and I'll edit it as soon as I can scan it in.)

But really, I like the dragonian approach. She seems pretty smart, too.

Wolf: Maybe she has acceptional skill! ^_^

*nods slowly* That was kinda what I thought...They age slowly, but what they could learn in a few of their years, humans would take a long time to learn, human-year-wise...Something like that...

Dragonians in generally age a LOT slower then humans. Having the spirit of a dragon gives them a lot of advantages. Dragons live a long time, so do dragonians. But don't be fooled either, dragonians or dragons aren't immortal. Therefore, they can be killed (with some difficulty) by a skilled warrior or mercenary. Possibly even a Mage, thought dragonians by general characteristics have a resistance to magic.

Mercenaries are just paid assassins, right?

Generally, yes. Whether they'll do a job or not is usually dependent on how much they're paid. XD
Cool, I never realized my being Dragonian also affected my stats...I'd wondered about why everything was so high, save for my Magic Attack.

Well...Dragonians are limited to using magic, but have a high magical resistance. Now, this is general characteristics stongue.gif Grand can't see that a Holy Knight would probably be a lot more powerful then an Ex-Soldier, and that Captains are generally stronger then Samurais and Ninjas. So of course, it's not exactly applying to your stats. Mercenaries however can be hired hands, or hired guns. They work solely to make money using contracts. Mercenaries also tend to work alone.

I meant generally. Honestly, how many games do you see a captain beat the hell out of a samurai? Not many because the samurai guts him like a fish.

...There's nothing like that there in Misc, just stuff for editing your names, bypassing flood control, etc. etc.
