Dryt left his home at the age of 15, barely an adult to his people. He was at first very naive and was soon robbed blind. Having nothing, Dryt wandered around the land, doing oddjobs for money. He won his warhammer in a battle protecting a small caravan. He was paid handsomely for his aid and with that he bought his scale armor, a hand crossbow and enough food for a long trip. His trek was to travel across the land and start his life as a mercenary. For a while he traveled, doing a quick job for money every now and then. Eventually (when he was in a neighboring city) Dryt heard of a attack close to the city of Goldcreast. Dryt, looking for another job. Dryt is honorable, and stubborn. As for most Dragonborn, honor is his life. He is very touchy about people questioning his honor due to the fact that he was easily taken advantage of in his earlier year. He will go to great lengths to prove that he is a very honorable person.

I notice a lack of speed values, special Senses/vision, languages spoken and certain features (such as the Dragonborn Fury with extra attack bonus when bloodied, or the halfling Bold and Nimple Reaction benefits) in the character sheets.
Are they just irrelevant info for this game, or...? I sorta regret making my Deva character if so, since it means my 3 languages are rather much of a waste, and the dragonborn Dryt gets an advantage since his heavy armor doesn't penalize him on movement/speed.
Thanks for pointing that out, I sort of forgot about those as I was busy while posting these. I'll make adjustments as necessary. Another reason some of that isnt typed in is as a person witht o much free time on my hands, I tend to make dozens of 4e characters, so I remmeber Many of the racial features and ablilites form the PHB1.

Spirit of Life
All Deva were born from the Astral Sea, ex-angels taking upon a more mundane visage for their benevolent God and lord at the expense of their memory and powers. For thousands of years Serrah's 'ancestors' have died and been reborn in the cycle of reincarnation and rebirth that is being a Deva.
So many lifetimes ago, Serrah as he was once before was a devoted follower to his lord, Bahamut. In a past lifetime, his very being and soul were saved by a great primal spirit, at the cost of the spirit's own 'life'. Swearing to strive to repay the Primal Spirits of the world over his endless lifetimes, Serrah's previous incarnations found a new home quite by accident, growing reclusive both from civilization and even their own creator to learn more and act to protect the Spirits and the natural world that they embody.
Finding beauty in all forms of nature and able to commune with the spirits he swears himself to, even after having repaid his debt in full, Serrah is a Shaman as he has been for so many lifetimes before. His spiritual companion is a Shikra, a bird of prey that is not seen anywhere near the city of Goldcrest, but it is a companion that has remained with him throughout many lifetimes. His Shikra companion never speaks to him of his previous lives, just as he understands not to ask. If it becomes necessary, he will know.
Almost devoid of personal possessions save a single totem, handcrafted leather armour and several handcrafted javelins, as a Deva Serrah rarely needs to bathe his clothes and comfortable sleeps in his armour. Often quiet, he keeps his thoughts and motivations hidden often, but will act quickly to protect the world and spirits he is bound to. And so, after decades of seperating himself from the more 'civilized' races, acting instead as a guide for tribes of less intelligent creatures with the help of the spirits and his own retained memory of the Goblin and Giant languages from his previous lives, he returns to the cityscape to prepare to fight another threat to the Spirits of the area.

Sorry, but could I ask for my character sheet to be edited slightly? Solely the background, that is.
For lore purposes, could you replace the words 'Creator' in the background with simply 'lord' or some other arrangement of words? I was thinking of something else at the time of character creation, and was thinking that all angels were essentially beings created by their God, but a recent look at the Monster Manual leads me to believe they are agents, but not necessarily creations of.
