In-Character Information Character’s name: Tidwald the Tall Character’s sex: Male Character’s race: Human (Highlander) Character’s age: 66 (born in 1567) Biography Tidwald is an elderly homeless man known amongst the poor community in Alban as Tidwald the Tall on account of his height. His life was quite unremarkable and eventually unfortunate. Having grown up in a small community in the rugged northern mountains of the Haense kingdom, he was well experienced with living a hard life, common of the mountain folk. He withstood harsh winters and dangerous hunting trips and travelled many times north with his father to sell furs, which was their trade. This was normal life for Tidwald until the loss of his father in a raging river on a trapping trip in 1600 after torrential rainfall. Upon returning home, he came to find that the small village he had lived in also fell victim to the environmental changes caused by the rain and had been smothered by a land slide, resulting in the loss of his mother whose body was not found. Tidwald, having lost his home, moved to Alban where he worked on his cousin’s farm outside the city walls. After a farming accident which left Tidwald unable to work for quite some time, he managed to dodge fighting in the Greyspine Rebellion but had to move out of his cousin’s farm as he had left to fight in the war. Tidwald, refusing to be a burden on his cousin’s wife, moved into the city where he became a beggar and street urchin at the age of 42. It was this same year that Alban became the new capital of the Kingdom of Haense which caused a spike in population growth and prosperity for the city but also a spike in homelessness. The hardships of street life for Tidwald, his injury and tragic loss of his past life lead him to developing a hard drug problem to distract him from the world around him. Tidwald spent many years on the streets of Alban where he became engrained in the homeless community and came to know many characters amongst the population, eventually becoming part of the community surrounding a gang headed by a farfolk thief, Old Hansae, in 1616. Tidwald didn’t involve himself in thievery but the gang offered help, shelter and protection to the homeless community and they helped retain a sense of safety and comfort, all things considered. Tidwald became a frequent guest at Hansae’s table during the skimpy meals he often laid out for the less well-off and he became familiar with the man and his gang. He would recount tales of the mountains to the younger ones who’d spent their lives on the city streets and talk and retell stories and songs he’d learned from bards and minstrels in Karlsberg. Then came Maxwell Hoath in 1924. A young blow-in to the gang that made quite the impression on Old Hansae himself. He quickly became a valuable asset to the gang with a natural ability for thievery and the 2 became quite close. However by 1926, certain reforms in the city lead to the eventual disbanding of the gang due to pressure from the city guard. Many members were caught and hanged and was eventually eradicated, save for Maxwell and another member Vincent. The homeless that weren’t involved directly with thievery were left to fend for themselves on the hostile streets once again. Maxwell and Vincent were wanted men and fled the city but not before telling Tidwald that if their paths were to cross again, it would be in Sutica. Another few years passed and the safety and security offered to the poor by Old Hansae’s gang was now very sorely missed. The streets were very hostile and the homeless and drug addled started turning on each other. Life once again got rougher for Tidwald and fearing another winter on the streets of an increasingly dangerous city and at the old age of 65, Tidwald decided to make a move to Sutica and try to find his old friend Maxwell. Tidwald successfully made it to Sutica and the pair were reunited. Personality Traits: (what are your character's quirks?; habits?; likes and dislikes?) As a young lad, Tidwald enjoyed the songs and stories of bards and was merry company in the local tavern in his village. He still has a fondness for drink in his old age, enjoys a smoke off a pipe and reciting his tales but he has an air of sadness about him due to his harsh life experiences. He has a a strong survival instinct despite the pain he's endured and is still resilient and able bodied. While waiting for an opportunity for a pint and in between puffs of his pipe, Tidwald has a fierce thirst for a fine cup of tea. Old Hansae made a fine brew of eastern spices when he could but nothing could sate him more than a traditional cup of black tea with a drop of milk that Maxwell would make him. Ambitions: (what does your character aspire to be?) Tidwald, at this stage of his life, wishes simply to survive. He long ago accepted his life as a street dweller and has grown accustomed to the life. Ideally, having a roof over his head as he ages furtheris on his mind, it isn't a goal he actively pursues. Things may change now in Sutica as his only plan was to find Maxwell and now that he has accomplished that, they may form a plan to reform themselves in their new surroundings. Strengths/Talents: (what is your character really, really good at?) Skill with a bow is something Tidwald has had from a young age from hunting with the trappers on expeditions. The hungry wolves and bears in the harsh winter taught him how to be silent on his feet and although he never utilized this skill for thievery, he is still proficient at gliding silently through the streets and alleys. He can parry a blow or take someone off their feet with his staff if needs be but these situations haven't been plentiful in his life. Weaknesses/Inabilities: (what is a skill that your character needs to work on?) He suffers a slight limp since his farming accident and walks with a staff, although this is more out of habit as his limp doesn't cause him pain. He has spent many years as a drug addict on the streets of Alban but the months on the road travelling to Sutica has helped ween him off them but the easier found pipe tobacco he smokes has become a more pressing habit of his. He isn't as able bodied as he used to be but still retains his strength, he is just slower to utilize it if a situation requires it. Appearance: (what does your character look like?; how tall are they?; hair color?; scars?) Tidwald is a tall man of 6'3'' when standing at full height with broad shoulders. He has a bald head but long white beard and bushy eyebrows. He wears an old pair of lemon colored leather boots, flax pants and a dirty burlap shirt in warmer climates with rolled sleeves. He has a satchel hanging by his left side and is left hand dominant. Skin: (please provide us a screenshot of your character’s skin;
