Name: Liam Donnelly
Nickname: "Sharkey"

Age: 43
Gender: Male
Position: Guide

Appearance: unkempt. Liam has light brown messy hair and wears a thin whispy beard and mustache. He doesn't care for shaving. He has deep penetrating blue eyes that seem to look right through a person as if he knows what they are thinking. Liam wears T-shirts and jeans with a black leather jacket. The jacket appears brand new and is one of his finer possessions. He typically wears an old pair of black leather combat boots and has several tattoos over his body.

Personality: Liam is a no-nonsense man who really never paid much attention to his appearance. His voice is gruff and hands are calloused from working on the docks or on ships at sea. The texture of his hands mirrors his personality -- gruff.

Liam is defined by determination. Once he sets his mind to doing something, he will doggedly pursue the task until the goal is achieved, even if he has to die to accomplish it. As a testament to his daughter determination he's still alive.

Liam's vices include cigarette smoking and whiskey. When intoxicated, Liam is a bad drunk, looking to pick a fight with anyone near him.

Biography: Liam grew up in the Dallas, TX suburb of Garland. His father worked for the Union Pacific railroad and spent most of his time working, drunk in a bar or sleeping. As a child, encounters with Donnelly Senior usually were brief and meant Liam was meeting the backside of his old man's hand. Life was rough for Liam, but he made his own way. He doesn't take crap from anyone and if someone tries, he gives it right back; more than they probably wanted to deal with.

Liam spent eight years in the US Navy and learned a few languages along the way. Liam has always had an affinity towards learning foreign languages. He does know the languages necessary for the current mission. It was one of the reasons he was hired for the job.

After the navy, he spent the next fifteen years working as a longshoreman in New Orleans, LA as well as trips at sea aboard merchant ships. During Liam's many trips abroad his curiosity with foreign languages and the customs of new places piqued his interest. Liam quickly became known as the person who knew where the best places in the worst places were. He also established several contacts around the world which facilitated his ability to get whatever it is he desired.

Special Item: Colt M1911 .45 ACP with Ivory pistol grips. The pistol had been given to him by his grandfather before he passed away.

Background: Bill Carson was born and raised in Albemarle County, Virginia in the Shenandoah Valley in 1843. Young Bill learned to ride a horse at age 8 and has been in the saddle ever since. As a boy he played with the young slave boys on his father's cotton plantation. Bill feels just as comfortable in the company of Negroes as he does with Caucasians.

In 1861, Bill was 18 years old and a member of a local Militia Cavalry organization. After the attack on Ft. Sumter, SC in April, twelve Cavalry Militia units organized into the Virginia 1st Cavalry at Winchester in July, 1861, under the command of Colonel James Ewell Brown Stuart. The Cavalry Regiment was under the command of General Thomas Jackson.

Bill Carson saw action at First Battle of Bull Run, and several dozen other actions until he transferred to a new organization. In January 1863, he joined the 43rd Battalion, Virginia Cavalry, Partisan Rangers. The unit was organized as a Guerrilla unit under the command of John S. Mosby who had served with Bill Carson in the 1st VA Cav. Bill admired Mosby and once said he would follow the man to the four corners of the earth.

As a member of Mosby's Rangers, Bill participated in the Greenback Raid and attacked Maj. Gen. Philip Sheridan's wagon train at Berryville as well as the famous and daring raid far inside Union lines at the Fairfax County courthouse in March 1863. Mosby's Rangers captured three high-ranking Union officers, including Brig. Gen. Edwin H. Stoughton. The story is told that Mosby found Stoughton in bed and roused him with a slap to his rear. Upon being so rudely awakened, the general shouted, "Do you know who I am?" Mosby quickly replied, "Do you know Mosby, general?" "Yes! Have you got the rascal?" "No, but he has got you!" Mosby's Rangers also captured 30 or more sentries without firing a shot.

When the war ended, Bill didn't know what he would do for work. He spent some time in a Union Prison depot, where he contracted a bout of Yellow fever. Bill was one of the lucky ones. One in five men who got the fever died.

Bill returned to the Shenandoah Valley and his Grandfather's plantation. The old farm had been burned to the ground, his parents and grandparents were all dead and his former Negro slave friends had left the area. He did not know what to do and decided to head out west to find a new start in life.

After visiting many cities in the west, he wound up in San Antonio, TX where he worked as a farmhand for several years. After reading the notice from the Texas Rangers about the Bandidos near El Paso, Bill mounted Angus and headed West in search of adventure.

Single-action Colt 45 revolver and...
a Sharps 1874 Cavalry Carbine, .45/70

Other: Bill Carson is Quiet, Pensive, intelligent, but undereducated. Due to his years of experience in the saddle, Bill is an excellent horseman and marskman. He is also an excellent tracker. Bill suffers from frequent nightmares about his wartime experiences. This interferes with his concentration or ability to focus. He often consumes alcohol in large quantities to help deal with his problems.

A native American ancestor haunts Seneca House named Otetiani and also goes by the name of Sagoyewatha. Otetiani can be seen with a large portion of blue cloth tied over his head, wearing a crimson red coat as worn by the British during the American War for Independence and wielding a Peace Pipe. The former Sachem gives Guy Girard advice from time to time. He typifies the wise old Grandfather to the young man.

When in muggle school in Salem, Guy jumped at the chance to act in plays that his class would put on for their parents around Christmas time each year. He recalls playing the part of "The Best Elf" in the play by the same name when he was in 2nd Grade.

Guy has a happy child hood. Some may say the child is spoiled, he has never gone wanting. He plays for the Seneca Quidditch team as Chaser. He is a fast flier and very agile. excelling more at sports than academia. Master Girard uses the updated Firebolt (version 3) for playing Quidditch.

Guy's parents own one of the few Mansions in Salem, NH; a vacation home on Lake Winnipesaukee and a Swiss Chalet in the Adirondack Mountains.

Appearance: Jacob stands 5' 10" tall (178 cm) and weighs about 174 lbs (79 Kg). He has long unkempt brown hair and blue eyes. His beard is scruffy and symmetrical patches of gray hair have sprouted on this chin. Jacob is in fairly decent shape; slender and his hands are calloused from work.

Name: Jacob Carpenter (nick: Jake)
Age: 35
Nationality: United Kingdom
Birth Place: Bellingham, England
Profession: Construction (Carpentry, Masonry & Plumbing)
Personality: Jake is a quiet pensive man. He is confident and knows himself well. He can be prone to outbursts when provoked or exhausted.
Biography: Jake was born in North West Northumbria in the village of Bellingham. He attended local schools in or near Bellingham and graduated from the Queen Elizabeth High School in Hexham. After graduation in 2003, Jake joined the Royal Marines and spent four years in uniform as a member of 45 Commando.

In the four years, Jake was with the Royal Marines he traveled to Northern Ireland, the United States, Norway and to Afghanistan. In January 2004 his unit deployed to Northern Ireland for 6 months in support of peacekeeping operations, returning home in June. In September 2004, Jake deployed with 45 Commando to the United States training with US Marines at 29 Palms, California and later at the Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Centre, high in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Jake trained in cold weather warfare in mountainous conditions. In 2006 Jake was promoted to Lance Corporal and given the added responsibility of leading three other soldiers. That same year, Jake and 45 Commando was deployed to Norway for further arctic training. Later that year, the unit deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Herrick. Jake's job in Afghanistan was to work alongside Afghan National soldiers and help them learn their trade as soldiers. The unit recovered from Afghanistan in April 2007 and Jake left the military the following June.

He found employment with Bellway, one of the largest construction companies in the United Kingdom. He quickly learned the trades of Carpentry, Masonry and Plumbing. Since the company he worked for was located in Dudley, north of New Castle upon Tyne, Jake relocated to the region living in a flat in Longbenton.

In the first year of living in New Castle, Jake met Meridith Brine who he fell in love with and married 20 months later in September 2010. Jake and Meridith made a lovely couple. Jake often referred to his wife as "Meri" or her nickname, "Pep". Their first bairn, William was born in October, 2011 and their second, Michelle was born in April, 2013. Bill and Shelly were well adjusted young children.

As the outbreak of dragons grew, Jake's fears and apprehensions broadened. In late 2013 with a newborn and a two year old, Jake took his young family to Alnwick Castle about 40 Kilometers of where he lived in New Castle on Tyne. The presence of dragons frightened everyone. Jacob and Meri were most concerned with taking care of Billy and Shelly. The small community grew and grew over the years, but then the dragons' presence increased snatching people who dared to walk far from the protection of the castle walls. Late in 2018, Meri was taken by one of the more aggressive dragons, who earned the name, "Red" or "The Red King" for his dark reddish hue.

Life after the death of Meri is filled with darkness for Jake. The knowledge that his two young children ages 7 and 8 keep him going. If not for them, Jake would undoubtedly fall into a state of depression. Occasionally, something will remind Jake of his "Pep" and he is forced to find solitude.

Other: On a scavenger mission, Jake acquired a few tools to help him fend off the dragons. One was a L129A1 sharpshooter rifle, chambered in 7.62mm. He was able to gather up two boxes of 7.62mm ammunition or 840 rounds. He has fired a few of these, but has most of this stash left. He also have 12 20-round magazines for his rifle.

Appearance: Tony Collins is an impressive looking man at 6' 4" tall and weighing just under 250 Lbs. His body is sculpted to perfection from more than 30 years of body building and weightlifting. He is of African descent with dark skin and has taken to wearing a goatee since the dragons showed up and the formality of an army went away. Tony wears black combat boots, black combat trousers a Black bullet proof vest, elbow and knee pads and a black Patrol cap that is normally worn backwards. He also wears black weight lifting gloves.

Name: Anthony "Tony" Collins
Age: 50
Nationality: British
Birth Place: Matlock, UK
Affiliation: Dragon Slayers
Profession: Soldier
Personality: Quiet, disciplined and focused. He can be jovial at times.
Biography: Tony grew up in Matlock, the county seat of Derbyshire in central England. Tony had a difficult time as a young man, getting into fights often and in trouble with the law. He lost his father at the age of 10 and his mother had a difficult time raising the unruly youth. As a teen, Tony was a bad egg and had a dark cloud hanging over his head.

Tony joined the British Army right out of High School. The Military corrected his attitude and he was able to channel his energies in other ways. He got into body-building and excelled physically, tactically, technically and academically in many ways in the military.

Tony served as an Infantryman with 2nd Battalion, The Parachute Regiment (2nd Paras) at Colchester Garrison from 1988 to 1991. At the conclusion of this assignment, Tony then went to 1st Paras Training Battalion as a Lance Corporal. He assisted instructors at the Parachute training school until he was promoted to Corporal in 1994.

After six years in the Army, Tony felt comfortable as a soldier and knew this would be his career. He then applied for and was accepted into Special Air Services Selection. SAS selection lasted 19 weeks; Tony would agree that this experience was the toughest of his life and would prepare him for what was yet to come going toe to toe with a dragon. Never in his wildest imagination would he have ever expected to be in Northern England fighting dragons.

He spent six years in SAS with Air Troop, B Squadron, 22 SAS Regiment and saw many covert operations around the globe and at home in the interest of the crown. In 2000, Tony was promoted to Sergeant and given his own SAS Team to command. When the British got involved with the American's Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003), Tony's SAS team was dropped near Basrah prior to the Allied forces crossing the Kuwaiti-Iraqi border and conducted Long Range reconnaissance and Surveillance activities on Iraqi Army units in the area.

In late 2003, Tony was promoted to Colour Sergeant and left the SAS temporarily, returning to 3rd Para where he served as a Platoon Sergeant. The unit had recently recovered back from Iraq when Tony joined them at Colchester Garrison. In 2006, the 3rd Paras were deployed to Helmond Province, Afghanistan. Colour Sergeant Collins saw extensive fighting with the Taliban in July and August of that year. The fighting continued throughout the deployment, but nothing was as fierce as those first two months. Two years later, the unit recovered back to Colchester where Tony found a promotion to Warrant Officer 2. This promotion elevated him to Company Sergeant Major of No. 1 Company, 3rd Parachute Battalion.
After 20 years in the Army; either in the SAS or the Paras, Tony was content with his life. When he wasn't training with his unit, he was lifting weights. Keeping his body in top shape is extremely important to Warrant Officer Collins.

Once the dragons were uncovered, life for the nation, the world and for Tony Collins changed. Tony saw most of his "brothers" perish under the fire, claw and might of the awesome beasts we came to know as dragons. The next ten years, saw Tony fight with various underground groups in a futile effort to suppress the dragons. Tony claims to have killed no fewer than 25 dragons including three that he dropped single-handed. His body is marred by scars from the beast's armored skin or claws. Tony counts his blessings for still being alive.

Other: Tony's favorite weapon to use against the dragons is the AA-12 Auto Assault Shotgun which fires a 12-gauge round and uses a 32-round drum magazine. The weapon can fire semi or full auto at a 300 rounds per minute rate of fire. The Frag-12 is the most effective round used against the dragons in Tony's opinion. This is a High Explosive Anti-Personnel (HEAP) round which perform like a miniature hand grenade. Tony alternates his drums with HEAP and Buckshot. Tony also carries a Sig Sauer P229 chambered in .357.

Eric wears his hair skinned on the sides and back with a small layer of wiry black African hair on top of his head; a hairstyle known as "high and tight".

Psychological Assessment:

Eric Sapp is a well adjusted man who works well under pressure. He calm and cool under most situations. Eric is very analytical, taking time to study a situation before jumping right in.

Eric has an ascetic face and his facial expressions are considered emotionless and severe. He prefers to not attract too much attention to himself. He tends to behave in a self-restrained manner with strangers, always maintaining a long psychological distance. His speech is clear and logical and he always follows a logical progression. He also has a tendency to emphasize key words. When defending his concepts and ideas during a confrontation his logic can become solid and absolute. He cuts out all irrelevant details that may cloud the argument.

Although the first impression of Eric Sapp is that he is emotionless, when inspired during conversation an emotionality previously unseen begins to emerge. His eyes start flashing with a fanatic light and his passion increases as the conversation progresses. However, he still tries to maintain self-control. Eric will sustain conversations only if he finds them interesting. He prefers to remain silent rather than give an opinion on a subject to which he is indifferent.

Service Record and Remarks:

Eric Sapp was born in 1992 at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Brighton, a borough of Boston, MA. His father was a professor of aeronautical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA.

Even though the Klinat Union interrupted the landscape of all of earth's infrastructure and its military, Eric completed his education, graduating from the USAF Academy in 2014. He attended Pilot's school as an Ensign. By this time, all the nation's Air Forces and Armies of the planet adopted the naval ranks to maintain uniformity.

In 2016, Eric married his high school sweetheart, Carla Knight. Initially, Carla followed Eric to his duty stations.

At the age of 25, Eric was given command of a Squadron of F-22s and a promotion to Lieutenant. Five years later he was promoted to Lieutenant Commander and given command of a Strike Group in the United Nation's 5th Strike Wing. The Squadrons, Groups and Wings also transitioned out of the now obsolete F-22 and given strike fighters which could attain extremely fast rates of speed while traveling in outer space. The Klinat Union shared technology was unbelievable. Eric Sapp felt right at home in the cockpit of this new strike fighter.

Name: Joseph "Joe" Filion (AKA: "Fill" or "Big Joe")

When the End of Days began happening, Joe and his family spent most of their available time in church praying. His children were only 5 and 6 years old then. They did not understand and their parents tried desperately to make sense of it for their children. It was easier when Pam was alive, but once the children's mother passed, Joe had a very difficult time explaining what was happening. He forced himself to be strong for the children. He had to reflect back on his combat tours in the Middle East to help him cope with this changing new world.
Gender: Male

Age: 47

Joe suffered from depression when Pam died, but within the first year following the event that created the current apocalyptic situation, he got over the loss. He experienced the same thing years earlier when his father died and then eventually when his mother, two sisters and their families passed away at all. It was devastating initially, but he did come to terms with it and has hardened as a result. But his heart had toughened up from friends who he'd seen killed in Afghanistan and Iran while he was on active duty.

For the most part Joe is an upbeat positive man. He prefers to give people the benefit of the doubt, but in this crazy world has come to the conclusion that it is dangerous to trust someone too early. Approach with caution is the buzzword when encountering strangers.

If Joe is well rested, he is a sane man. If he gets tired or has to go long extended periods of time without sleep, he becomes irrational. He will yell at people for no apparent reason. His children become nervous and skiddish when he gets like this. He used to beat Joe when he was little, but quickly learned to stop doing that. It served no purpose for his son and the lack of beatings helped to develop a strong relationship between father and son. His daughter idolizes him, looking up the older Filion man.

Joe looks younger than he really is. This is a quality he inherited from his mother. Once when she was 47 years old, someone asked her why she married such an older man. Dad was 50 at the time and he always looked older due to a rough life of beer drinking and working on the railroad. The older William Filion had lost his father when he was 10 in 1968 and that had a negative impact on him as well. Mom appeared 40, so they must have appeared at least 20 years apart.

Joe typically wore either golf shirts or T-shirts and jeans with a soft brown leather shoe before everything went to hell. He wears a gold/silver colored Seiko wristwatch and his wedding ring. He also wears the dog tags that were issued to him when he was in Basic Training thirty years ago. Today, he wears what is left of his old US Army ACUs; relics from his past life. He outfitted his two children with these uniforms as well. Joe also wears the a dark grey baseball cap depicting the blue and red insignia of the Buffalo Bills. Joe recalls feeling excited for the Bills' prospects prior to the apocalypse.

Joe has a leathered appearance to his skin and a few scars under his clothing you cannot see when he is dressed. There is a small scar, front and back on his left shoulder. They were gifts from a Taliban insurgent in Afghanistan when Joe was 19 years old.

Joe stands 71" tall and weighs 205 Lbs. He is soft in the middle, but otherwise average to above average strength for a middle-aged man. Joe is primarily of French Canadian Descent, but also one-quarter Seneca Indian. His skin tone is fair, but he tans well in the summer time; attributable to his Native American heritage. Joe's blue eyes have always been one of his more alluring features. Although he prefers a high and tight haircut for his brown locks, as of late, he has allowed them to grow out, to include the beard, which has filled in with many gray hairs. He is always on the lookout for a qualified and willing barber.

Joe's strengths include an organized mind coupled with years of experience in small unit tactics at the squad, platoon and company level. Since his days with the US Army and New York Army National Guard, Joe has always qualified expert with rifle and pistol. People often joke that there is nothing more dangerous than a second lieutenant with a map and compass. Joe enjoys countering that quip with the reality that he has an uncanny sense of direction. He always knows where north is.

Danger Sleeping BEAR! Please don't wake him up. Joe becomes irritable if not allowed to sleep at least six hours straight, uninterrupted. This makes him difficult to work with when he gets like this. He becomes crabby and miserable, yelling at people for no apparent reason. His wife used to refer to him as Grumplestiltskin. Due to three ear infections in the left ear when he was younger and a failure of the left Eustachian Tube to drain properly, his hearing is 10% impaired in the left ear. Joe can be lazy if not properly motivated. He is easily distracted. It is a terrible thing to admit, but he tends to remember things just a little wrong. Joe talks too much. He tends to be overly friendly and may divulge personal information that is irrelevant to what is going on. He is susceptible to the TMI bug. He engages the mouth before the brain too often; saying inappropriate things.

1. Shortly after it was clear the end of days was upon the citizens of Western New York State, Joe Filion acquired a High Mobility Multi-Wheeled Vehicle which he used to travel around the area in with his two children.

2. Check out: Joseph Filion's Journal. I will remove items below as they happen in the journal.

3. They joined a group of survivors who caravaned together for several years. Over time, the members of the group died off or moved on with other groups leaving Joe and his children alone.

4. Although, Joe began with complete sets of Army Combat Uniforms left over from when he was in the New York Guard, most of those have ripped out and rendered useless. He has taken to wearing dark colored cotton trousers, combat boots, dark colored T-shirts and a black leather jacket. He still wears a Buffalo Bills baseball cap. His dog tags remain around his neck and he still wears his watch and wedding band.

5. Moving around the area allowed him to link up with "Grisha" and O'Keefe. Although Joe has been offered to ride on the inside of the T72, the former Infantry Officer has declined every time. His son, Joe Jr. has filled in has driver and gunner from time to time. But so far Terry and Joe Sr. have remained outside the turret.

6. Not long after linking up with Grisha and O'keefe, the HMMWV they have been using broke down. Instead of attempting to find repair parts, they have been forced to abandon the utility truck and transfer their equipment to Grisha's Tank.

7. Watson brothers drive a car bomb into Grisha's T-72. Joe Jr. punctures an eardrum, but survives the explosion.

Equipment: Kichirō wears long violet colored silk robes with silver decorative trim. He occasionally wears a cowhide leather vest with lamb's fur lining and a similar cap, when the weather is inclement. He carries a Bō stick which he uses as a walking stick and he wears Tabi on his feet. This is a sock/boot that is made of cotton around the ankle and leather around the foot. It is a thin layer of leather and serves only to protect the foot. The Tabi is one piece.

Kichirō carries a small pack containing items needed for spell casting, flasks of oil, food, candles, incense, flasks of water, flint and tinder, parchment, quill and ink, spell book and a bed roll.

Personality: Kichirō is focused and reticent. He cares for all living beings and is saddened by loss and hardship. His sadness is not crippling and Kichirō will do whatever he can to allay the suffering. He is soft spoken; reserving speech only for when questioned.

Brief History: Kichirō was raised in the Eastern Lothirian province of Kozakura in a small village known as Fujihara. Kichirō's grandfather suffered a defeat at the hands of a member of a rival family. His actions brought shame upon the family. As a result, the grandfather's eldest son was obligated to give up his eldest son to the local monastery to become a priest in an effort to rid the shame cast upon the family name. As part of his commitment to the temple, Kichirō then had to swear off his family, severing all ties with them. Regardless of the lack of contact with the family, they remain full of pride for their son.

From an early age, Kichirō was destined to become a priest of the Order of the Impenetrable Crucible. He has lived at the Temple since he was five years old and has been studying gōngfu since he was six years old. A majority of his teachings have been religious in nature. He was taught to sacrifice his own desires over those of others. He feels no material attachments to this world. He has harnessed his inner energy or Ki through the element of water. Kichirō's purpose is to heal as many people as he can in this world.

Much of his time is spent in deep meditation communing with the spirits and strengthening his energies; his Ki. This is where he gains the ability to cast any of several different spells. He maintains a book where he annotates his spells in his pack. Each time he encounters a new spell, he must spend time focusing on this spell which is written in his book. After several hours of practice, he is able to hone this new spell and use it when needed.

When Kichirō was 25 he took a vow of silence for one year. When his year was up, he had successfully completed the vow and was allowed to leave the temple at will. He remained with the temple for an additional six years before he took up a personal quest. With the temple leaders' permission, he began a personal quest to heal as many people in the outside world as much as possible. He has been on this quest for the past three years.

During his time with the Temple, Kichirō has studied his religion, armed (Bō stick and Tui fa) and unarmed combat (gōngfu) as a means of allowing his energy to flow through his being and his spirit, caligraphy, herbalism, alchemy and potion making.

Name: Aditya Je'kal

Race: Elf
Kingdom: Ali'tian
Age: 190 (appears 19 year old human)
Gender: Male

Physical Appearance: Aditya keeps his dirty blonde hair short cropped and generally neat in appearance. If the length reaches his shoulders, he gets a trim. His eyes are dark blue and piercing. An object of his stare might believe his eyes to be piercing his or her very soul. His skin is very fair and smooth. It appears as though he has not worked a day in his life or exerted himself in anyway. He is strong, as strong as a 190 year old elf should be, but his physical strength is not exceptional by any means; more average. His agility on the other hand is considered excellent and has aided him in his youth in winning several sporting events with other elves in his age group.

Aditya typically wears white undergarments; trousers and a blouse cinched up by a leather belt at the waist. His footwear consists of either a mid-calf soft leather boot with fur at the top and small tassels or poms at the rear of the boot or a knee-high black hard leather boot used for riding. He also has a pair of soft leather sandals, similar to moccasins that he wears around the palace. He wears a golden necklace depicting the icon of his father's family. It is a symbol of <Fill in blank>. Aditya generally wears either a red or dark purple tunic over the white under blouse and then a violet robe with or without a hood over this attire.

When he goes into battle, which has happened on a few occasions, he has a full set of layered steel armor. His arms, chest, hips and lower legs are covered by the layered steel armor. His back, thighs, groin and neck are covered by mail armor. He wears a pointed steel helm with a mail skirt at the rear of the helm to protect the back of his neck. The layered armor allows him to move freely and improve agility when dressed in armor. Many of the pieces of his armor are adorned with red and gold colored silk for ornamental purposes.

Character Bio: Aditya worships his father, Adrastos Je'kal as most sons do, but the casual observer may not detect a few differences between the two. Aditya admires his father's power, intelligence, diplomatic skills, generosity, martial prowess and his bearing. On the other hand, Aditya is selfish, pompous and arrogant. He is intelligent to the point where he knows to listen to his advisors, but will always seek glory; attempting to triumph his name whenever possible. Aditya seeks to build a glorious reputation for himself as not only a skilled warrior, but as a talented leader of Elven warriors. The only times Aditya is generous is when it serves his own purpose. He would never miss an opportunity to boast his accomplishments.

Aditya passionately hates humans especially the Northern Khar variant. He does not care for dwarves or the southern Norivanian humans. He is however curious about the Oolarg from Mallik and would like to learn more about them. They are very reclusive, which only piques his interest.

Although he passionately hates the humans in the North, he tolerates his father's position. It would be a lie to say he is not waiting for the day when his father passes the crown to him, but he is in no hurry to have his father assassinated. He remains devoutly loyal to his father. He would never consider committing patricide or contracting someone else to do it for him. He does love his father.

It is known in the north that Aditya does not share his father's compassion for the Northmen. For those in the North who appreciate the tentative peace, they remain silent, not wanting to upset the delicate relations with the Elves. For those men desiring a return to troubled days when warriors swept down from the frozen north and raided the Elven forests, this could be an opportunity to return the world to the way things used to be. Their lust for battle may be renewed with the son elevated to the Ali'tian Throne.

Aditya believes the Elves are racially superior to humans and dwarves. Half-Elves; those of mixed bloodlines are scum, something to be scraped off ones boot before stepping inside a dwelling. Half-Elves do not deserve to be at court let alone hold any positions of responsibility.

Aditya has not yet bound with a dragon hatchling. During the preceding Dragon moon festivities, Aditya was stricken with an ailment that had him bed ridden. He was forced to remain in bed with a fever. The illness weakened him physically and made him delirious. He was near death during this illness, but his constitution and desire to live pulled him through.

Aditya has ridden horses since he was very young and is considered an excellent horseman. He also has trained on the use of the Elven Bow which he has acquired an exceptional skill level in its use. His bow of choice is an ornate Elven construction made from the finest Osage wood available in the Mörka Forest. This forest is located east of the Insjön Blod Lake. The Lake was at many times in the history of the Ali'tian and the men of the North reddened by the blood of both peoples.

Aditya did train on the use of the sword and acquired an above average skill level in its use. He has always preferred ranged or mounted combat over melee fighting. He has also begun training at the novice level on the use of natural magical arts. He can prepare a small sample of potion that provides a boost in energy to anyone who drinks it. Some have given it the name Aditya's energy drink. It does not provide a huge boost, but enough to overcome mild fatique, not enough to tip the scale in a fight toward the user.

The military leaders of his father's house have trained him in the Martial Arts of a Leader of men. He has studied complex engineering systems and understands basic tactics for maneuvering large formations of elves on the battlefield. He is a strong proponent for the combined arms techniques for integrating foot soldiers, heavy swordsmen, longbowmen, Light Rangers and mounted Dragon Riders in combat. He sees himself as a Mighty Elven Warrior King who will one day rule all of Khar, in a nation devoid of humans and dwarves.

Meticulous in appearance and attire, Aditya demands that the servants pay special attention to his clothing which is usually either white, red or dark violet in color. He becomes aggravated or seriously annoyed if his articles of clothing are not well taken care of.

Having never ridden a dragon, Aditya is secretly fearful about the experience. He would never express this feeling outward or say anything that might make him appear weak, but the fear does reside within. In that same breath, he is excited about the upcoming Blood Moon festivities. He has no idea what dragon will choose him. He knows it will happen. He has considered the various dragons and is kind of hoping for a black dragon to compliment his lithe agile abilities. He sees himself as a mounted archer toppling his enemies from the saddle wielding his Osage Bow.
