Age: Pick a number between one and 100,000
Alignment: Chaotic, and self-suiting (not necessarily evil, he just doesn’t get attatched to others, and feels no responsibility for them)
Appearance: Arac’s shape is everchanging, although he prefers either the shape of an Argonian (from the Elder Scrolls series), or a metal-covered, golem-like form resembling Scud.
Bio: Arac has lived a thousand lives, and has a thousand pasts, all to suit his his needs at the time. For a while, he claimed to be the son of Arachaniel, the lord of a subterranean spider race (don’t worry, they’re not a drow rip-off, the spiders and skin colours are the only things they share). For another time, he was a rogue who had amassed a horde of deadly magical items in his travels, one of which supposedly gave him his shapeshifting powers. He was once a rebel, who forged his own enchanted blade (to this day, he claims to have forged Amari, only the circumstances change) to slay the cruel tryanny of wizards that ruled his home nation. Another time, he was a demon who faught his way out of hell for a love he couldn’t have (this was primarily a pity story, used to bum free drinks off patrons who’d had a few for themselves). Another claim is that a supernatural power sent him to Earth to do it’s work, but he took his own course upon arrival. In his rare moments of honesty, Arac admits he doesn’t know his real past anymore, or his true shape. The only thing consistant in all of his stories is that he lost his soul many years ago, in ‘a gypsy’s bargain.’ He never states any more than that, even what he means by the term. All that is certain is that he would like it back, and is amassing the resources to wage quite a war for it, apparently.
Power Level: Like many others, I cannot give an exact number. Arac is vaguely immortal. His other abilities may change with shape; he can become quite physically strong, dexterous, and more, however, he can’t gain many true powers. In other words, he won’t win every battle he fights, not even most of them, if they’re against powerful foes, but he doesn’t ever lose, or at least, very rarely does he lose.
White Magic: 4 (He can cast any spell from a scroll, but none without one. Basically, likea DnD rogue witha very high ‘Use Magic Devices’ skill.)
Black Magic: The same as white magic.
Primary Strength: The ability to transform himself or any inanimate object into any shape he wishes. He may no change the magic properties of an item, or take on the abilities of his new form; if he changed to a Dragon, he would have thick scales, sharp teeth, etc., but would not have any of the dragon’s powers; it’s a physiologic change only. His swords are very well enchanted. Does not trust anyone.
Primary Weaknesses: Without his swords and other items, he has almost literally no offensive power. He has little common sense and even less caution; only through the natural anomoly of his form is he still alive. Does not trust anyone, but will help beautiful women against his better judgement.
Notable Equipment: The dual longswords, Einn and Amari, the former strikes with greatly aggrivated kinetic energy, posesses an undulling blade, sometimes leeches the life from it’s victim, wounds it gives are said to never fully heal (although these could be romours Arac has started for one reason or another), and it has other magical porperties that reveal themselves when they are needed; the emrald blade Einn is as versatile as it’s master. Amari, on the other hand, is simple an ever-sharp blade with the ability to shield its user from any magical effects he does not wish to have, so long as it is drawn. Arac holds Einn in his left (dominant) hand, and Amari in his right.
EDIT: Anything I have listed as a ‘it may be’ is yours to decide. Arac lies through his teeth, most of the time, and does it well. So, basically, you can have him say whatever you want about himself. His personality it deeply cynical, embittered, and pessimistic. He tends to wear a hangdog grin if his face permits, and has a penchant for melancholy, gallows humour. In a singe sentacne, Arac is the type of person who enjoys prefers to lose, when gambling. The concept of love sickens him above all else. That last bit, about love, is very important.
Arac gets along best with those who aren’t very much like him, or who share his beliefs, but aren’t similar in many other ways.
