Oakroot

Post by Shinebright on Sat Dec 06, 2014 10:56 am

Still adding new things to the profile, what is new will be in yellow!

Name: Oakroot
Player: Shinebright
Gender: Male
Character's age: around 800
Soulname: Orl (unrecognized)
Tribe: Wolf Folk
Tribal Position: Hunter, Elder and Howlkeeper

Appearance: fair skinned, with a generous amount of body hair on his chest (generous for elves, which is to say ‘any’), but also with a series of long-healed claw-mark scars across his shoulders, abdomen, legs, wrists, as well as two obvious puncture wounds near his neck. He has a handsome look, proud, and always steady gaze, with eerie blue eyes that seem to almost glow. His short wavy hair is kept cut to the nape of his neck, and his beard and body hair match the dark brown color. He has been thinking to let his hair grow, but ussually he cuts it before it is shoulderlength.

Body Build: He is not tall nor short, but compared to some of the elegant Sea folk he might be considered a bit ‘squat’. He is solidly muscular from head to foot.

Usually Seen Wearing: He has dark almost-black brown leggings of leather, and a tan-beige colored soft leather shirt, which he often keeps wrapped with a wide cloth belt around his waist when it’s warm. Also he has soft wrapped leather shoes, and arm bands on his forearms. He generally wears leathers, though freely admits to enjoying the soft feel of silks and other woven items that the Sea elves share. 

Weapon preference: In the past he always hunted more or less exclusively with a sturdy spear. He is more than adept enough at spear work (hand held, rather than thrown) that he can instruct anyone who wishes to learn more about it.
But after his attack by the two longtooths he wanted to learn more to defend himself and others from a distance and practised with the bow and slingshot. It will take many moons of practise before he masters the bow and the slingshot, he never gets really good with the bow, but from a distance he can hit a target. His favorite weapon now is the slingshot and is better with it then any other weapon, though he never leaves on a hunt without bow or spear. But he generally hunts only with a bow and only at distance – and also, usually, not alone.

Magic: Though Oakroot has an average sending ability, it’s possible that with his improbable survival of the massive attack which would have left anyone else dead, he may have some form of internal, hidden healing power. He has never been able to use this consciously, nor has anyone with any sensing ability been able to determine whether it’s actually true – he also has not Recognized so there’s no telling what his offspring might carry. In search for how he survived the attack he meditates, tries to soulsearch, but only after he is faced with terror he finds his powers (healing and fleshshaping in small form) and his soulname!

Family: Son of Hawksaim and ??, (both deceased) brother to Redfern (deceased), uncle to Stormcloud, it is not sure if Redfern is her father, but she looks a lott like him. And even if he wasn't her cousin, Oakroot cares for her as if she was. Uncle to Ridge, Twig and Leaf, cubs of Freespirit, daughter of Hawksaim and Springleaf.

Personality: Oakroot should be more stoic than he seems to be, given the absolutely grim determination he showed in the past. But if there’s something that he carries with him more than the scars on his body, it’s a staunch love of life, rather than the fear of it. He has become less impulsive and more careful about his hunting habits, and his not-so-subtle choice to change weapons for hunting bear this out. He’s the kind of elf who loves to kick back and tell stories about those scars, though he would not start up a conversation about them specifically, because he knows some people are put off by them.

Likes: dreamberries (oh please oh please can I have some more of that ‘wine’? please?), cool days and warm furs, physical activity and having something to do. He also likes to try make day to day items, weapons, bowls and more. And he is known to make some of his own clothes. He also loves to cook, but his specialty is preparing birds in a cookpit, especially quails!
Dislikes: Longtooth cats, being alone, seeing anyone in pain, bad dreams, not having a wolf-friend.

Skills: quite good with a hand-held spear, sparring with it, and hunting with them; adequate but not great with a bow and arrow, usually close range and larger prey; wilderness survival, animal tracking, animal observation. He is learning how to use a slingshot and will get really good at it.
After surviving the attack by the Longtoots he learned he was good at telling stories and have since tried to remember, under the influence of dreamberries, the important events of his people and slowly grew in his new role as Howlkeeper. Crowspirit has expressed her interest in telling stories and now she is his student.

History: For a great many years, Oakroot was considered a good hunter and scout. But around 100 years ago or so, he had been doing a walkabout in the Holt’s surrounding hills (as he often would) and came across a newcomer to the area: a young male longtooth cat. They had hardly been seen in that specific area and he felt this would be a challenging hunt. He was very right: but he also hadn’t counted on the longtooth’s mate hunting him while he stalked the male. In this fight, he managed to fatally wound the female before she did any damage, but the male took the opportunity and sprang. The long sets of scars that still cover Oakroot’s body show that the cat had him literally in his mouth before Oakroot dealt a final, fatal strike with his spear. The wounds somehow didn’t kill Oakroot, and he lay half-dead for a good number of days before he roused himself and crept to the Holt proper. Though he was offered proper magical healing, it seemed he didn’t actually need it. His muscles function just fine under his shoulder scars, he suffers no ill effects from the obviously deep puncture wound that likely hit his trachea. For this reason, some call him ‘High-Ones Blessed’ but he hardly even thinks that’s appropriate. 

Since the attack, however, Oakroot changed his tactics radically, picking up a bow and slingshot and learning to use it slowly. While he may be brave and extraordinarily lucky, he’s not stupid – he paces himself and makes sure that when he hunts now, he does so with adequate protection as well as with friends around him. 

Perhaps the best word to use to describe him is ‘undeterred’. He may have changed course, but that’s never stopped him from enjoying his life. He won’t foolishly throw it away, having come so close to losing it, but neither will he pull back so far that he doesn’t get to enjoy any of it. He’s seen the pair of female Sea elves who lost their mates, heard the terrible story of losing them – but in so many ways even though they’re similar in having survived… he’s almost entirely opposite the withdrawn and fearful ways they show.
Life is too good to hide from it.

Any Other Information:
It has been many years since Oakroot has had a wolf friend. He hadn’t had one at the time of the longtooth attack, and spent many eights between having them in the past, though he has had at least three wolf-friends in his life. He feels, and rightly so, that if he’d had a wolf-bond he wouldn’t have been attacked by the longtooth cats. He is not activly searching for a new wolf-friend, but finding his new friend will happen when he least expects it!



See Oakroot: The History for more information.

well for one thing, go ahead and give him a soulname. if you want to decide he does indeed have healing magic, you can put that.

maybe fiddle with the history, likes and dislikes a bit? just read through and try to get a feel for the character in your head. don't be afraid to make Oakroot yours!^^

alright then. let me know when this is ready for approval! just remember you cannot join in roleplays until the profile is approved and you post that you have read and understood the Holt rules, and the roleplaying rules.

if he does indeed have healing powers, you will have to specify that in his magic section, along with the fact it is dormant.

I have read them and understood them.

The roleplaying rules I need to re-read them. I have one question about the stories. Is that a joined affort or of a single writer too. I started to read one and saw you all joined in, loved it btw!

the story currently going on is our first Holt roleplay, so Kai and i decided it would be best to do one that included everyone to allow them to interact and settle into their characters. after it is finished, they will be free to begin individual stories that can include any number of characters.

for example, Stormcloud should be joining Tidemist and Kaimeta to go swimming with tails after this.^^

Yes, but that would be distant cousins, cause I read she was the first healer in two generations, so.... maybe a (distant)cousin her mothers'/ fathers' side?

Euh, I noticed that we don't have a weapon maker, Silence want to make a new spear for brooksong, has oakroot the experience to make his own spears? can he ask oakroot for advice?

I think that while Silence wandered alone he learned himself how to make a bow and arrows, it was his primary weapon, did oakroot did the same with his spear?

I understand. Well at least I have asked.
But isn't Brooksong her Sister? Delhya made up the famikytree... so..... this is complicated! Wink For now we can just wait and maybe in the future they found out they are related.

well most of the stuff in the tribe seems to be retroactive...so if later it's agreed they are related, they'll have always known they were related. XD well except the elves who don't really know who one parent is...but they can have a big discovery thing eventually XD

Brooksong is the daughter of Straystar & Windgrace, Sister to Lancestrike, 1st Cousin to Sunsong. Niece of Path. Does that help?

Ah! Yes! Misread it, Brooksong is her cousin. So Oakroot maybe Path's nephew...? Accoring to your familytree. We will keep that in mind when Apogee will accept the familybond.

He would be Path and Windgrace's first cousin. Brook and Sun's second cousin. Brightjoy's nephew, if the okay is given by Apogee.
