Mercenary ( Ninja )Origin:
The Near EastHome:
None ( Vagabond; Currently located in Al Zahbi )Affiliations:
None ( Cut all ties... )Background:
Unkempt raven hair falls across an exotic, dark-skinned face. Outlined with kohl, his pale blue eyes penetrate their target, staring with uncommon intensity and focus. All the more unnerving, the whites of his eyes are stained by azure blood. His expression is as neutral and stoic as his demeanor, and his voice betrays no emotion. Marks of Zahak and numerous scars cover his athletic frame, concealed beneath his Near Eastern attire. There is a ruthless and unnatural presence about him.
Years of drowning himself in the essence of various fiends and pushing his power to it's limits has affected this blue mage's body and soul. He lives in constant pain, suffering terrible side effects from gaining and wielding his savage magic. The ability to feel, both emotional and physical, have begun to degrade in him, and he struggles not to become like the fiends he gained his power to fight. His life and power are devoted to mercenary work in hopes of making a difference for the greater good wherever it is most needed. Instilled with a strong sense of justice, he lives by the mantra that those who do nothing to prevent evil are just as guilty as those who perpetrate it.
The fastest path between two points is a straight line, and that is Veraude's method of choice in all things. If an obstacle in his way were a locked door, his first solution would not be to pick the lock or find another way around, but to waste little time and simply destroy it. His brutal, aggressive methods are favored not for lack of thought but for their efficiency. Though direct, he is trained to be observant and patient, thus willing to retreat or evade an enemy, watching and waiting for a weakness and strategy to to be revealed. Results are all that matter, and the ends justify the means to this ex-Immortal.Picture:Letter to Sfant Umbra:
I am a former Immortal Lion seeking passage to the Middle Lands and wish to conduct business as a mercenary.
