Advanced Character Profile
 
Character Name: Garland Sulzanth
Gender: Male
Age: 46 (Physical apperance 25)
Universe: Pathfinder / D&D
Canon or Original: Original 
 
Appearance: Garland is a young man of light skin tone, standing approximately 70 inches (5'10") tall - slightly above the average height for human men of his age category. His hair resembles a sandy blonde color that reaches to his shoulders. Though Garland tends to keep his hair unbound at an approximated neck length, he sometimes will accent his appearance with braids. His physical build is unmistakably athletic, slightly favoring raw strength over nimbleness without exactly sacrificing the latter. Garland's eyes resemble a cloudless Qayssan day, possessing boundless depths of blue color and emotion.

Garland favors loose-fitting robes and articles of clothing that heavily feature blue or azure colors with gold trim. He likes to remain comfortable wherever he travels, using mild enchantments to adapt to unexpected weather phenomena with a minimum of fuss.  He makes an active effort to avoid looking like a dirty bumpkin with no self respect, while simultaneously avoiding the pitfalls of grasping for the attention of others. When presented with advance knowledge of dress customs, Garland will use his considerable resources to blend in as much as possible.

Celestial: After his journey to the Iron Dominion, Garland's body changed on a fundamental level. He has grown a pair of white feathered wings which measure a total span of 9 feet (measured from the farthest tips of each wing). His physical strength and toning are even more evident after his transformation.

Armor: Whenever Garland cannot fully employ his knowledge of magical abjurations or other warding spells to serve as protection, he will field Spellchain, a suit of finely wrought armor which utilizes silvery mithril plates to protect his neck and torso. The arms, chest, legs, and joints are covered with mithril chain to permit flexibility while retaining some degree of protection. Garland will also often wear a helmet to protect his head and complete the image of a capable knight, though his field of vision can be sorely restricted.

Spellchain also restricts the use of Garland's wings, so he must emulate their function through spellcraft to fly.

Journeyman of the Enthroned:
 

Guildmaster of the Enthroned:
 


Personality: 
Negative traits: Critical, Diffident, Indulgent, Skeptical, Womanizing
Positive traits: Benevolent, Clever, Discreet, Driven, Gallant, Generous, Rational, Relaxed, Selfless
Primary interests: Adventuring, Ancient Lore, Exploration, Fine Arts, Magic, Martial Arts, Painting, Philanthropy, Women
Dislikes: Abuse of People/Power/Authority, Corruption, Desolation, Oppression, (Self) Prominence

Overview: Garland is an energetic, warm-hearted individual who has been fascinated with the concept of magic since his earliest years as a young boy in the farmlands of Qayssa. Though he recognized and adored the simplicity of life in the rural countryside, Garland has held an inquenchable thirst for knowledge that could only be sated by further exploration of the world. He has rarely declined the opportunity to explore lost tombs or other potential repositories of magic and lore. A controversial aspect of Garland's panoptic attitude towards magic is his willingness to study occult rites and works that would otherwise be branded as forbidden and heretical. Garland reasons that knowing the function of such dark arts does not necessarily compel a person to use them, and in his case, enables a person to disrupt them more readily. To Garland, willful ignorance will never contribute to an adequate defense.

His moral compass has been shaped by varying degrees of tragedy. Twice infected with one of the deadliest diseases ever known to mankind, Garland has a soft heart for anyone who shows signs of suffering or maltreatment by the hands of another. He has often come into possession of small fortunes throughout his adventuring career, only to have his thoughts immediately turn to utilizing said resources in a bid for improving the general quality of life of those closest to him. And while he has idealistic dreams of improving man's lot in Shayllan, they are tempered with cautious realism. That same realism motivates Garland to train his body as much as his mind, ensuring that both aspects of his being remain healthy and able to answer the daily challenges of living.

Garland has a low tolerance for actions or phenomena that would lead directly to the suffering of another sentient being, regardless of their own moral standings (or failings). He believes that the worst form of evil is the kind that would actively deny happiness, fulfillment, and/or agency to other people. Despoilers, destructive rabble rousers, and iron-fisted tyrants have much to fear if they ever motivate Garland into moving beyond the role of a soft-spoken detractor.

A lesser known fact of Garland is that he has a penchant for admiring members of the opposite sex during his leisure time, if not engaging in discreet intimacies. His recent promotion to guildmaster has largely halted this behavior, but more than a few women have found him to be a generally pleasant and attractive person, if not charming.

Garland isn't nearly as pleasant to himself as he is with other people, in part due to the strict upbringing he received from his father Ryszard. He aggressively pushes himself to succeed at every task he undertakes, believing that anything worth doing is worth doing well. This in turn can lead to moments of severe burnout and infrequent periods of withdrawal from society. In these moments of despair, Garland may turn to vices of flask or flesh to help rekindle the flames of his spirit.


Any Unique Abilities/Skills: Garland possesses an abundance of physical strength and stamina, exceeded only by an intellect which hungers for greater knowledge of the universe. Though stronger muscles, minds and bodies certainly exist outside of Garland, he has surpassed human limitations within Shayllan.

Garland's wings will permit him to fly without the use of magic, but will also easily set him apart from a crowd unless they are concealed.

History: Garland's story is one of a young man from humble beginnings being pushed to achieve great accomplishments which only grew in scope along with his age. Born to a devout blacksmith and an accomplished enchantress, Garland would spend the first two decades of his life within the newly formed commonwealth of Qayssa. Life there was typically simple and peaceful, though not without danger. When he was only 10 years old, Qayssa was ravaged by the outbreak of a deadly strain of smallpox (colloquially known as 'blisterbone') that left young Garland ill and eventually claimed his mother's life. Ryszard Sulzanth, the boy's father, temporarily suspended his blacksmithing business to take a proactive role in safeguarding his community.

Once the pestilence had passed, Garland had neared the age of acceptance into the Asvas Association of Academia (AAA) - a prestigious university which studied both fine arts and the arts of harnessing arcane magic. Though Ryszard had hoped that Garland would have followed his example as a humble blacksmith, Garland's heart was set on the pursuit and mastery of arcane magic. Furthermore, his late wife's last wish was to allow Garland the freedom to follow his own path at the age of maturity. To prepare Garland for the harsh realities of the world beyond Qayssa, Ryszard reinstated his blacksmithing profession with his son as an apprentice. To Garland's own surprise, he would not just learn how to work metal in the heat of a forge; he was also thoroughly instructed in the techniques of bearing arms and armor.

With Garland's physical education complete, Ryszard permitted him to enroll into the AAA. He initially would weather some mockery for a late start, but brushed it off and focused on his studies. By his graduation at age 19, Garland graduated at the head of his class with the demonstration of Grapeshot, a spell that he had created based on a simple childhood memory of witnessing a cannon being fired. During the speech, Garland explained that it wasn't his intent to create a weapon for the sake of profit, but to experience the difficulty associated with researching and actively bending magical forces towards a desired outcome.

Garland's first recorded act of heroism occurred one year after his graduation. He began investigating a resurgence of the vile blisterbone contagion, which began infecting livestock and packs of scavengers in Qayssa's wilderness. This led him to a conspiracy involving the death-worshipping Brotherhood of the Ul, and eventually culminated in Garland striking down the Ul's chief enforcer who had been acting as a plague carrier. This feat of strength would attract the attention of the Enthroned, an agency devoted to the study of magic and its use for philanthropic ends. Formed of the brightest minds from the Western Kingdoms, the Enthroned and their stated mission of protecting Shayllan from extraplanar threats appealed enough to Garland's sensibilities for him to accept membership into the organization.

Over the course of the next five years in his adventuring career, Garland would go on to earn a rather unique reputation. He had a penchant for blending spellcraft and swordsmanship into a cohesive blend, often misleading and surprising his foes as to his true capabilities. However, since Garland's deeds were better known than his actual person, he was free to pursue various romances and other short-lived liaisons. The Enthroned would not have long tolerated such conduct from a less capable or a less discreet magician. However, his life would soon change in ways he could have never expected..

The Calling:
 

The Word of Power:
 


Other Noteworthy Facts: Though not part of any organized religion, Garland himself is devoted to the cause of Qaedien. (Further noted in Universe Specific Information)


Universe Specific Information: Garland is native to Shayllan, a vibrant planet which is seated in a remote corner of the multiverse. It was one of many shaped by the goddess Mohrah in an effort to create a terrestrial paradise, one which would not be subject to the meddling of other deities. It is a rapidly evolving and changing world, currently in an era of technological development that is roughly analogous to the early Renaissance.

- Shayllan is shielded from overt divine influence by the Great Cage, an interwoven quartet of planes that are each linked to one of four primal elemental forces. Though ways of bypassing the Cage were later developed, gods and godly beings alike are unable to fully manifest upon Shayllan.

- Mohrah expended an enormous amount of energy to create the Great Cage, sacrificing her divine power over the elements and the ability to unify them into a cohesive force. Mohrah's fate is currently unknown, but other beings have risen to claim stewardship of her elemental domains.

- Dragons exist on Shayllan, but have been hunted to the brink of extinction. For approximately 560 years prior to Garland's birth, an "Age of Absence" persisted in which the humanoid races believed that all dragonkin, truebloods and halfbloods alike, had perished. During this period, the remaining dragonkin took great pains to ensure their privacy and survival through a variety of methods.

- Qaedien is a personification of the good and holy energies that suffuse the multiverse. Qaedien does not exist in a physical form, and her female persona is a construct of her church. Qaedien does not answer her priests in words, only in impulses and urges. The bulk of her faith centers around the endurance and survival of evil rather than its defeat, ever watchful that other good deities and religions do not go too far to see evil undone, lest they become that which they oppose. Because of her central importance to the entire pantheon of good deities in Shayllan's setting, most any good creature has found correlation with their own goals and those of Qaedien, if not her faith.

- The Brotherhood of the Ul serves Yegdrel, a dreadful and malicious god of undeath. The earliest myths of creation state that Yegdrel was eventually murdered by one of his own brethren, but soon arose from his own corpse through dark and occult methods only known to him. His priesthood continues to plague Shayllan to this day, countering the verdant abundance of life with their foul perversion of the laws of entropy and decay.

- Heaven and Hell in Shayllan are known respectively as Ulesia and Ixokax. A third realm, Belgesta, lies between Ulesia and Ixokax as a functional buffer that resists the polarizing influence of both dimensions.


Storyline Specific Information:
 (Dissidia) Garland wakes up in an unfamiliar world, having last drifted off to sleep after the restoration of his eyesight. Unbeknownst to him, Garland was summoned to this strange new place by the goddess of harmony, Cosmos.

Though he is separated from most of his possessions and from Shayllan's ley lines, Garland does not stand alone.

RP Sample:
I must be crazy to do this for you..

Every time Garland thought of Ethelle, he was reminded of the warrior woman's magnificent physical power. She was a friend and associate of the arcanist, who had responded to his subtle flirtations by subtly challenging (and defeating) him in contests of strength. Though she wasn't above teasing Garland, she was a good sport about it and appeared to genuinely enjoy his company (in a platonic sense).

There was no such woman here, nor pollen nor gentle warm breezes to comfort Garland. He stood atop an infernal stone shelf in the slag pits of the Iron Dominion, where an exposed subduction zone offered rich deposits of minerals to resourceful or daring miners - provided their lungs didn't boil from inhaling the blistering air.

Garland couldn't help but smile to himself as he surveyed the colossal adamantium auger that ground deeply into the fault line as if it were an oversized screw. Rather than obsess over the dangers that he faced in this industrial hellhole, the trespassing mage chose to imagine what forms of dark humor his late friend Argyle would have conjured in the same situation.

Oh, of course! The punchline of this story was the knowledge that Garland had to get inside of this dreadful place to find the missing Ulesian relics.

This is a really nice, in depth profile! I have a couple request to change some minor stuff before I approve it. For the Universe section, can you label it as DnD/Pathfinder just so everyone knows what universal rules system you're using for Garland?

And for the personality section, most of it looks good, except polyamorous isn't really a negative trait. It just means someone who wants consensual relationships with multiple people. You may have been thinking of the word womanizing, since that seems to fit your character more. 

Thanks in advance!
