Talca's description

Talcanaiion "Talca" Aldavathar

Physical Description: Talca is, at a glance, easily identifiable as an elf; tall, lean muscled, and preternaturally graceful. The golden color of his almond-shaped eyes, too, is almost as readily identifiable an Elf trait as are the points of his ears. His hair, colored various shades of brown much like the floor of his native forests, is worn long but pulled back and secured by a smattering of thin braids so as not to interfere with his vision. The intricate, leaf, vine, and arrow toolwork of his well-worn leathers do nothing to obscure his heritage, either; nor do the bow and well-stocked quiver of arrows he carries. The machetes, though, to most folk of any species that have so much as heard tales of the Elf, the machetes that Talca carries are, indeed, a curious choice of weapon.

Background: Born and raised in the town of Poldora in Londelirinen, Talca spent his early years playing in and exploring Hith Taure (the Misty Forest) and, in doing so, nurtured a great love of "wandering with a purpose." Seeking out and discovering new and alternate routes to and from various destinations, for him, became less and less a hobby or diversion but, something much more akin to a passion. When he was of age, he eagerly apprenticed himself to a lovely, wandering archer, originally from Alloryen, named Merilwen Gabrinil. Under Merilwen's tutelage, Talca became not only a talented archer in his own right, but, also, was afforded numerous opportunities to hone his pathfinding skills. In fact, before the pair finally parted ways just a handful of years ago, Merilwen had come to defer to her apprentice's judgement when it came to finding and navigating their course during and between adventures, as his skill in doing so was almost uncanny.

Even with those skills taken into consideration, though, Meri and Talca went their separate ways when the she-elf was summoned to Ela-Isthtel by the Elf Court. The mission that the kingdoms would have her undertake, Meri had told him the night she left, was not one she would care to see Talca endure, besides, the Court had summoned her, and her alone. So it was that, in order to continue feeding his wanderlust and love for exploring, Talca began hiring himself out as a guide and pathfinder to just about any party that would have him, and so it is that he comes to be with his current companions.


Personality: When Talca is "working" he tends to present as your typical Elf - quiet, focused, self-assured, even, perhaps, a bit aloof - but, given his choice of occupation, that would almost be expected of anyone of any race. In those times that he's not blazing and scouting the trail ahead of his compatriots, on the other hand, Talca is a bit of a different case. Depending on the individual perceptions and prejudices of those who have travelled with him, the elven pathfinder has been alternately described as snarky, arrogant, sarcastic, and, from time to time, funny. In all his years travelling with Meri and, also, in the years that have followed, Talca has been exposed to all types - from the gruff, glowering, never-speak-more-than-a-syllable-to-a-point-ear sort, to those that saw elves as exotic and exhilarating and would never stop talking if you did - and, as a result, has come to the decision that people weren't much different from paths. Every once in a while you'll encounter part of one that surprises you, but you can't let it change who you are or where you're going, so, you continue being you and find your way over or around that off-putting obstacle and arrive at your destination all the happier for it in the end.

Nice Characters guys; you wont see one of those from me, you will have to learn about her as you go.

I hope my short, simple intro is ok. I only have a little time this morning and thought I would throw that up for starters. I hope to have more, and possibly interactions, later.

Nicely done, Boo Boo!

I'm doing actual work-work, at the moment, and that'll occupy me for the next hour or two, but I do have a post in the works that I'll get to ASAP in which I'll be sure to acknowledge the new arrival.

Passable at best

It was alright I think, not my best work but I hope to pick up more as I go along.

I look forward to your acknowledgement.

Hmmmm...

...looks like we might have the makings of a party, here, eh?

I've got a post in the works but am going to hold of on calling it done until Finn and Celeste... *ahem-cough-cough-nudge-nudge-wink-wink*... have had an opportunity to chime in.

RE: Posting 101

So How do you embed pictures? Never figured out that trick here,... I'm not the swiftest at this format.

Working on Post now.

Pictures

The code/tag for embedding images is [img src="img url here"]

Just replace the square brackets with angle brackets and you should be good to go.

Re: Post - Two's a Company,...

This is not meant to be a Hostile GTFO post. It is an in character interaction-

My style is very much give and take,... I sling and insult, you throw one back,... we're all having fun here.

Just thought I'd mention it so that there's no confusion

I am happy to roleplay with everybody,... Eol and Boo-Boo you have my attention.

Yup, yup...

...I got that.

Nice post and nice little "twist" there. I'll try and get a response tacked up shortly.

And by flavor I mean pepper flavored

Love seeing the interaction!

My time is not as free, but I will work up some NPC action this weekend. You know, for flavor!

Let's Roll

No confusion here Finn, I realize it was totally IC. Now to see if Finn is as tolerant as the 'Peck'.


I'm looking forward to some Pepper flavored steak, ah I mean posts. I have missed the Lute and glad it is making a comeback.

Sorry my post isn't that long, my Laptop crapped out on me today. Totally Dead. I'm doing this on a table and I hate the small keyboard, so many errors I had to correct. ~Sigh~

Good stuff!

Loving this already... all kinds of places this could lead.

Celeste - I was just ribbing you, melui. I know you're still wrestling with "bandwidth" and can't quite post as frequently as you'd like. Looking very forward to what you come up with whenever you come up with it.

Everyone else - look for a post from me either late tonight or tomorrow morning.

@ "trained bear"!

Just a short one...

...to provide Talca's reaction to the "back and forth" between Finn and What's-her-face.

So far

This has been fun! But I wonder how it will all work out, considering the rocky start. I'm not sure they will make it out of the Lute.
