Chip-caution.png

First contact is often a gamble. What may seem to be a calm and somewhat reserved fishercat can easily turn into a grouchy hermit without preamble. His personality is imbalanced due to both his upbringing and the harsh side-effects of being permanently separated from what was forged by his tainted aether. He bore an unsettling hollowness that he gradually grew accustomed to under the care of some old friends, but since then, Chip has never been quite the same. He is unstable and oft anti-social, but underneath it all is a lonely boy with a broken heart. Glimpses of the previous identity of the boy can sometimes be seen, whether it be the sparkle in his eye when he fishes, or the warmth of a smile that teases uncertain lips. Although he will still accept companionship with others, Chip is far more reserved than he was before the change. Social contact is tolerated, but most are treated with an open and instinctive caution that goes beyond a natural distrust for strangers.


If you're lucky to earn the youth's fragile trust and friendship, his loyalty is profound and he might just offer you one of his latest catches for free.


But beware, the unsettling aura that follows the youth was put there for a reason. He is more than a victim.


He is worse.

A P P E A R A N C E

Chip-explorer.png

From afar, his crown of deep purple tresses may be the first thing you spot. These striking merlot strands frame a narrow and elongated visage that is gradually shedding its youthful qualities. Shaded beneath unruly bangs, orbs of illuminated starlight gaze upon his surroundings with a cautious and oft inquisitive air, and tend to reflect his emotions with startling intensity.


A scrawny build foretells a legacy of prolonged starvation and neglect. He is shorter than most his age, and it is unlikely that he will become any taller. Hidden behind a regularly clothed backside is a heavily blemished canvas that describes more of his past than Chip would ever care to admit. Smaller and less formidable scars mar his arms, while his neck, wrists, and ankles share similar callused remnants of flesh once rubbed raw. A lashing tail of violet fluff completes the wild look of a roaming animal.


Because he travels often, his attire is usually quite dirty and worn. Aside from a simple gray gilet and khaki slops, various pouches and a dark brown satchel layer his outfit with items of a wandering merchant. A hand-stitched red bandanna hides the calluses encircling his throat, and wooden bracelets with a single intricate carving adorn callused wrists. Typically, a fishing pole is always present on his person.... unless said object is broken or missing.


Voice: Some could say his voice is likened to that of sandpaper. Aside from it being deepened by one who has reached maturity, his tenor is distinctly gravelly and hoarse, as if it had been misused for quite a long time. He speaks somewhat softly and easily, though when provoked, his voice often drops into an irritated growl that is laced with warning. It would be wise never to piss him off.


S C A R S


His pale skin is a ragged canvas of untold stories. While a good portion of such marks are the thin and ropy lines of knife cuts, he also bares remnants of burns, stab wounds, and whip lashings across his back.


  • There are thick scars across his heels where his Achilles Tendons were severed multiple times in order to prevent escape.
  • Ragged claw marks streak across his back, administered by himself in order to hide a hurtful message carved there by a dagger.
  • Thick calluses encircle his wrists, ankles, and throat--painful reminders of skin once rubbed bloody and raw by metal shackles.
  • Various patches of his skin, especially on his shoulders and upper chest, are raised and rough to the touch. These are burns caused by a certain hunter's napalm thrower.
  • A stab wound on his shoulder, just a few ilms above his heart.
  • Nicked left ear.
  • Narrow cut along the inside of his wrist.
  • A stab wound on his right side, just above his hip.


L I K E S
Fishing. Gotta earn a living somehow!
Solitude. Provides a suitable environment for deep thinking.
Animals. The wildlife of La Noscea sure seem better than people...
Stargazing. An old habit that he's never quite lost.
Woodcarving. It's become somewhat of a hobby, to the point of using it to create a homemade Starlight gift for a certain someone.
Music. It chases the nightmares away.
Fish. They are basically his weakness and he could never admit that any kind of cooked fish tasted terrible. His favorite kind is Princess Trout.
D I S L I K E S
Violent Deaths. It brings up unwanted memories.
Abuse. No one deserves it. No one.
Soul-searching. Despite Lady Amara's insistence, Chip dislikes it fondly and rarely engages in pondering about his past mistakes.
Touching His Scars. Despite the near absence of flesh on his backside, he can still feel whenever someone touches them and the sensation is extremely uncomfortable and nearly unbearable. It's a great way to piss him off.
Strangers. He doesn't know you... and you'd better not know him.
Gossip. Especially if it's about those he cares about.
Healing Magics. He'd rather heal by natural means.
Q U I R K S
Nightmares. He is still quite prone to them, but Lady Amara has helped him enough that they no longer cause him to have insomnia.
Mood Swings. Perhaps a trait derived from his once tainted aether, Chip is known to rapidly switch from being grumpy to downright cheerful.
Slight La Noscean Accent. He didn't grow up around sailors or pirates, but Chip has developed this particular form of speech. Curiously, it often disappears all together whenever he is angry or upset.
Uneducated. This kid never went to school and was only taught a little of how to read when he was younger. However, after staying with Rhysa for a time, she has taught him the basics of reading and he is slowly becoming more literate.
Obstinate Loyalty. It can make him dangerously susceptible to avenging those he cares about.
Pulling His Tail. Most Miqo'te get angry if you grab this sensitive appendage, but in Chip's case, he'll either go completely stiff or turn a curious shade of crimson. The simple act alone means more to him than he can probably ever explain.
Milk! Whenever Chip happens upon any sort of place that serves drinks, the only drink he ever orders is milk. Perhaps it's just a standard Miqo'te stereotype, or perhaps it's an old habit faithfully followed to this day...
Hemophobic. He gets very uncomfortable around a large amount of blood and both the sight and scent make him uneasy. If he's around it long enough, he might even throw up or have a panic attack. This all depends on how much gore is involved. He can handle a small amount of it, but there is a very fine line.

  • Leather bag - Contains a tin flask normally filled with fresh river water, a gil pouch that is usually empty, a spool of thread used to repair his fishing pole if necessary, and several other items he's acquired during his travels.
  • Wooden music box - Chip's first Starlight gift, presented to him from Skycat. It was thought to have been lost in the same flames that had destroyed his camp, but was eventually returned to the boy. The box is pale and seamless, with the name "Chip" carved upon the lid. The "i" is dotted in the shape of a fish. Since the day it was returned, Chip takes it with him wherever he goes. Music Box Song
  • Hawk feather - A gift from Sorrel that he keeps tucked inside his satchel, hidden from sight and memory.
  • Dagger - A rugged makeshift shiv. It ain't exactly deadly, but it makes its point.
  • Fishing Pole - A simple elm fishing rod bought from the markets in Gridania.
  • Frying Pan - A keepsake scavenged from the abandoned cabin where he first learned how to fish.
  • Tetragonal Crystal - Though no longer a deadly weapon to Ashkin, the vacant crystal remains within a velvet pouch and safe on his person. It is translucent and despairingly mundane, but Chip still treats it as a precious Starlight gift.
  • Handmade Red Scarf - She remembered the day they first met. The scarf crafted by her own hands proved their undying friendship when Nym managed to find Chip many years later. The precious item is worn at all times around his neck.
  • Wooden Bracelets - Despite their plain appearance, the bracelets are enchanted with a spell to help lessen the effects of aether sickness when Chip uses Elemancy. A single elemental-infused crystal is placed in the center of each bracelet, and when his ability is activated, the aether is siphoned through the bracelets before entering his body. This gives him a way to control how much aether is used from the crystal, and decreases his overall risk of overexposure. The bracelets are also conventionally wide enough to hide the calluses on his wrists.


A B I L I T I E S


Semi-Impervious. He doesn't seem to be bothered by the elements, but that doesn't mean he feels nothing during a blizzard or a thunderstorm. He just doesn't show it.
Blood Memory. A trait carried over from darker days, whenever he ingests someone's blood, the taste is imprinted into his taste buds and he will always remember the identity of that person by the flavor of their blood.
Keen Sensory. Like most Miqo'te, Chip possesses a heightened sense of smell and sharp hearing, but he also has an uncanny awareness that stems from instinctual paranoia. He can oft detect an approaching threat before it even reaches his campsite, even if they make no sound.
Elemancy. After a visit to the Crooked Broom, Chip discovered that he possesses the ability to absorb the elemental properties of aether that’s contained in crystals. It only occurs whenever he gets angry or has a strong desire to win a fight, and the amount of aether used per second depends greatly on the level of his emotional state. This conversion lasts for as long as there remains aether in the crystal, or his body can handle the sudden influx of alien aether. Oftentimes after the elemental properties fade, Chip will be inflicted with mild to moderate symptoms of aether sickness that fade over time.
  • Wind: Increased speed and evasion. If the presence is strong enough, he can even teleport short distances.
  • Fire: Fierce and unquenchable like wildfire, Chip will briefly lose sight of friend from foe and attack anything in his path. His skin will burn hot as if suffering from a high fever, which is usually a side effect after the aetherical properties fade.
  • Earth: Takes on defensive qualities such as increased stamina and the ability to endure hits that would normally fatally damage his body. Once the sensations pass, he becomes fatigued and mildly sore.

N P C

O'anna Xhiji ( ) - Mother
O'anna.JPG

"I was told you died shortly after birthing me. I never grew up with a mother figure in my life, though I have met a few that could possibly suffice. I sometimes wonder what might've happened had you remained alive. Would my father have been less violent and angry? I am... glad you died the way you did, however. I would not want to have had my own mother's blood on my hands, for something tells me you were far kinder than your mate."

O'ctan Nuhn ( ) - Father
O'ctan.JPG

"Not a day goes by where I regret killing you. I loathed you with every inch of my existence, and I have no doubt you felt the same way, father. As much as I hate to admit it, what you told me that fateful day was painfully accurate. I am haunted by what I've done. It's something I could never forget, no matter how hard I wish for it. Your hateful eyes are branded into my mind, and the dying screams of the Tribe still ring in my eardrums. The taste of your death, however, still remains upon my tongue..."


Jerold & Tilly ( ) - Paradise

"It was with them that I first found paradise. I was found nearly dead, Jerold told me, but he didn't run. My crimes were not known to the island, an' all he an' Tilly saw was an injured kit chained to an idle boat. Would things have been different if they'd known the demon they harbored? It's a question I still cannot answer, but without them, I prolly would've never made it off that boat. I pay my respects to their cottage some days when I'm passing through, an' I can still hear ol' Jerold's laughter and catch t'smell of Tilly's latest casserole baking in the oven. I am... glad I never saw their bodies."

Nymeia ( ) - Muh

"Gone as soon as you appeared. I'd almost started thinkin' my encounter with you was nothing but a dream, but then I saw the stew and realized you were safely taken back home. Home... a place no longer familiar to me. The caravan is gone and you are one of the only reminders left of that time. I am glad I found you in La Noscea, little one. It was a pleasant surprise... and very much needed. Though it hurt to convince you that I am no longer the Azrael you remember, those two magic words you spoke still warm my heart. Wherever you may be, Nym, always remember that I am only an ocean away. Perhaps you could visit again, but those are only a fool's musings. You are safe where you are now and that is what matters. Stay strong, Nymeia, and don't forget to smile at the shadows. You'll be forever in my heart."

Groot ( ) - Surprise
Adult-Groot.png

"Yer a bit too big t’ride along in my satchel now. Kinda hard to believe ye started off smaller than a flowerpot. Although yer able to roam t’wilds wiffout me now, I ‘ope ye take care o’yerself. There are Sylphs t’at regard you as a hero, an’ as much as I hated yer attitude, it was nice t’ave ye around when I was exploring. This ain’t really goodbye o’course. Yer big enough fer me t’travel on now, and m’sure there’s gonna be a time when I’ll need a giant green thing t’blaze a trail fer me.


Thanks fer bein’ a good travel buddy, Groot."

Frostfeather ( ) - Skycat's Wings
Frost.jpg

"True freedom is never fully realized until you have soared through the skies. I was fortunate enough to experience this on a griffin no less, and it's a joy I will never forget. I saw her again two years later... after I changed, and she still saw me as a friend even then. My brother is lucky to have met such a kind and affectionate creature. There are no words to express my thanks for her assistance in helping me remember joy when I needed it most. I'll never forget her. Never."

Kari ( ) - Braided Huntress
Kari-Relation.png

"You're a lot like her. Always smiling. Always putting on a brave face in the presence of a monster. People like that 'ave a breakin' point though. Wot's it gonna take for you to turn on him one day? To truly show fear and make him realize how much ye hate that part of himself? In a way, yer almost lying to him. There's beauty in that coeurl. If ye hate it so badly, why do ye refuse to believe there's a cure? I'm startin' t'wonder how t'hells yer related to t'one wiff yer same eyes."

Lady Amara ( ) - Nosy Witch
Amara-Relation.png

"Appearances sure are deceiving, and that especially goes for Lady Amara. She may look old, but thank the Twelve she was around to save me. I owe her my life, but I cannot stand to be around her or her apprentice. Lady Amara is a telepath, she's gotten in my head, and that's about as close as we're ever going to get. I don't need her help in reconciling with my past. Sometimes I wish she'd never even seen it, but then I wouldn't be alive (as she tells me often). She could at least stop trying to talk to me about it. All of this would feel far more worthwhile if she helped me forget about my past instead."

Rose ( ) - Siren
Azrael pet.png

"There lurks a viper in the desert and I've met her. No words could ever express what I endured under her hand, nor the betrayal I felt after being handed over to her in my brother's stead. His memory of me was lost at the time, and it is likely I would have remained with Rose had Nym not insisted I be saved. That woman is wicked and deserves no right to live. Once, I would have done whatever I could to end her twisted and cruel existence, but now I realize it would have done me no good. Rose is where she belongs and so am I. I'm free from her forever and I think that is far more satisfying than revenge.


At least... that's wot I believed. And then I met her in the middle of La Noscea. She travels with the gypsy camp she harrowed long ago, and I... I'm afraid for Nym most of all. If I see Rose again, on my territory, I think... I won't run away this time."

Madam Mirage ( ) - Mother

"Mother, I had called her once. She portrayed herself falsely, and I should have never let her into my heart. She helped heal so much, but was always there to instantly destroy it. I don't know what the other gypsies saw in her, but I will never call her 'Mother' again. She deserved my hatred and my scorn, no matter the many times she cared for me, bandaged my wounds, combed my mane, fed me... No. She turned against my brother, purged him with a whip, and I can never forgive her for it. By the time I learned of her death, it hit only a cold and icy pit of emptiness. Aye, I did not mourn her death. Rather I found the news quite pleasing, for she'd died under the hand of my brother no less. In the end, she earned it."

P C

Feine ( ) - Skycat
Sunny-Days.png

"“If I ever saw you again, I’d say something stupid, like ‘I missed ye.’ The words probably don’t mean a damn thing t’ye anymore, but I’m still gonna say ‘em. I know it’s better I never see ye again, but it hurts. It hurts wiff a pain ye can’t ever feel again, an’.... sometimes I wanna know who it was that made ye dead inside. Ye were supposed to be dead. An’ now... it feels like I’m mournin’ ye all over again.

I realize now that I don’t wanna blame ye. M’lookin’ fer all t’reasons t’hold against others so I don’t have to look you in yer lifeless eyes an’ ask why? You didn’t choose t’become a monster; ye taught me t’at long ago. It’s not your fault, Skycat. It’s not. I don’t care wot ye or other people say.

Someday, I ‘ope I can still repay ye wiff a fish. Ye deserve that much at least. I wish I could do more, but I ain’t skilled at much ‘sides fishin’. Maybe... if I jus’ learned something, anything useful, would there still be a part o’ye left? You saved me all those moons ago.

Why can’t I save you too, brother?”

Khaz ( ) - Asshole
Feine-Khaz.png

"I prolly ain't ever gonna know why ye rescued me from that river. Ain't like I care, but it's been buggin' me. We ain't brothers. We ain't even friends. Yer cursed, just as I was, but ye still got a heart. You're still kind, and ye still know how to spare others. Maybe we are kinda alike, but it ain't matter. No way am I goin' back to t'Black Shroud for a real long time."

Mona’a Khursu ( ) - Moron
Monaeyes.jpg

"You an’ I, we’re just two scruffy fishercats tryin’ to make a livin’. Yer so cheerful and loud, it’s no wonder t’fish ain’t ever biting fer ya. Funny thing is, I don’t want ye t’be quiet. There’s somethin’ in that smile o’yers that reminds me of.... myself. At least, t’way I was years ago. It feels like forever ago, but... ye were like Chip was. A scrawny grinnin’ runt that didn’t worry ‘bout anything except wot fish were bitin’. I don’t like thinkin’ about the past, but it ain’t so dark when you’re around. Ye remind me of the time when I could still feel t’warmth of the sun on m’back an’ the grass on m’toes.


Don’t stop smilin’, moron. I kinda like it when ye do.”

Exi'a Vunoxo ( ) - Xi
Xi-headshot.jpg

A peaceful evening was shattered with the arrival of a half-starved and blatantly lost Keeper. Chip reluctantly shared his dinner with the timid stranger, secretly relieved for the company after spending his favorite holiday alone. There was a brief moment of tension between the two after Xi revealed an enchanted hand that could easily unmake an Ashkin, but it was quickly confirmed that the stranger was no threat to anyone. Chip shared a meaningful conversation with Xi, and his campsite sheltered two that night.

??? ( ) - Kindred

“He had t’nerve to ask me wot I was doin’ wiff t’wanted posters, but unlike t’others, he wasn’t so eager t’be angry ‘bout it. Maybe smart enough t’not pry. There wuzza fuzzy critter on his shoulder too, an’ I realized he likes animals like me. We talked ‘bout ‘em for a while, an’ I guess he’s okay. I kinda ‘opes he decides t’go travel outside o’Thanalan cuz t’desert ain’t feckin’ paradise.”

Rhysa Verkoh ( ) - Polite Pryer
Chip-rhysa-head.png

"It was kinda embarrassing, the way ye met me. I was justa dumb kid diggin’ inna sand, desperate t’get a pole an’ fish again. Ye didn’t ‘ave t’help... but ye did anyway. I guess I kinda owe ye for that. Ye even stayed long enough fer me t’catch somethin’ an’.... I dunno. I’d say thanks, but... I left before I could think o’the right words. I ain’t gonna judge ye for likin’ salmon, so long as ye keep yer curiosity far away from me. I like ye thinkin’ I’m just some innocent fishercat. I wanted to keep it that way, ...but then I learned ye know m’brother.


Ye rekindled the hope in me wiff talk of a way t’save him. I didn’t understand much o’it, but I agreed to work wiff ye. Don’t make me regret it. M’joining ye to make sure you don’t hurt him. Because... if ye do, ye prolly won’t ever see me as justa kid anymore.


T’hole yer diggin’ only grew deeper when ye took me under yer roof. It was a surprisin’ offer and.... I guess I’m kind of grateful. Wiffout a pole I don’t gotta way t’eat, an’ yer muffins are pretty yummy. Still, I find it ‘ard t’trust ye. I sleep hardly at all, and awaken at nearly every creak of t’floor. Yer kind an’ understanding, but I have seen that same compassion backfire an’ I’m not making t’same mistake again. Thank ye for t’home, t’food, an’ the hope that you’ve given me, but it’s not enough to win that trust yer hopin’ to find.


Yer still a stranger, Rhysa—but a nice one.”

Erryn ( ) - Annoying
Erryn-head.png

"I don't really know how to describe her. She's just some average musician that happened to play to the wrong sort of crowd. That's how we met. Nothing fancy. Just went and took her outta there before the Yellowjackets could snatch her. Nah, I wasn't playing hero. I was just in her way, she'd agree. Still, she's resorted to calling me 'Kitten' now and... somehow I ain't feel like correcting her. I mean, Chip's just a nickname too. Anyway, we parted paths nicely and she says she'll stick around Limsa for awhile. That's when I knew it was my cue to head for the wilds and not look back."

??? ( ) - Rookie

"This dumbass shows up asking me what I'm trying to catch inna river. Fish, o'course! I knew from the moment he appeared that he's hopelessly new to the art of fishing. Hopelessly lost too, judging from t'scribbled map he showed me. And to top it off, he casts his fishing pole worse than a drunken Seawolf. Where the hell did this moron come from?"

Sorrel ( ) - Waste of Time
Sorrel-Relation.png

“I warned you. You thought you knew me, but there are some secrets even an empath like you cannot unearth. Yet you persisted… and suffered the consequences. Now you know what goes on in my nightmares. You’ve seen the insanity that lurks in my mind and a piece of my past never shared with anyone else. I thought maybe I could confide in you, but even I was foolish. Of course you wouldn’t be able to accept it. How could you? You’re so innocent and untainted, much like the boy I was once. The horror in your eyes will never leave me, nor will that single question you whispered over and over again. I see now that I am no longer wanted in your world, but you are not the first. So go on learning what you can under Lady Amara’s tutelage while I slowly vanish from your memory. Goodbye, Sorrel.”

Lucere ( ) - Loser

“I learned t’fear ice long ago. It was my weakness, his weakness, and it was that which tamed the demon within myself. I thought I would never have to experience it again after killin’ Tome, but then I met this weird Keeper. He’s got those same chilling eyes and uses ice magick too. I don’t care of Nym trusts this Lucere guy. I can’t even stand t’be in the same room with ‘im. His presence reminds me of things I ain’t like t’remember and.... well, as long as he never hurts Nym, I won’t make him my enemy.”

Kieva Reiko ( ) - Poison-spitter
Chip-kieva.png

"I ain’t sure why ye wanted t’hunt down someone like my brother, but yer gonna regret ever showin’ yer face t’us that day. Ye saw ‘im as only a monster, one that threatened yer precious life as well as his own brother. If Khaz ever saw wot ye are behind t’mask, I bet he’d want ye dead as much as anyone else that ye don’t like.


Ye told me t’control my anger an’ become something more than wot I am. As much as I dislike ye, those words seem t’stay stuck in my head. I can’t stop thinkin’ about ‘em. I ain’t gonna play nice if we ever meet again, but I’ve realized one thing that annoys me as much as yer threats:


...yer kinda right."

Hojo'to Zuginoch ( ) - Bad Man
Ghost - HojoIcon.png

"I was foolish to think that the past could never catch up to me. That my sins only haunted my dreams. That the blood I had spilt had been long since covered by the shifting sands. Foolish was I, and I nearly paid the price with my life. A bounty hunter had caught wind of my trail when I was out running an errand for the gypsies, and that was how I met Hojo. To this day, I often wonder why he had spared me. I honestly deserve death after all that I had done. Since then, I've left Thanalan and all its horrors behind. Surely he did not follow me...?"

◢ Player Character Rumors - Feel free to add rumors of your own!
“Yeah, I know Chip. Hate to admit it but I’ve a soft spot for the pup. So, do yourself a favor—tell him a story for a fish... then get lost. Don’t even look at him the wrong way ‘lest you contend with me.” – Xeiz Feine

"If you stare too long into the eyes of a beast, the beast stares back out of you. Time will see whether boy or beast lives on. And whether the hunt must resume." - Hojo'to Zuginoch

"You mean that bitchass with the purple tail? Yeah, I seen’im. Was the shittiest day, too. Stormin’ and... yeah, fuck that day. But he’s... alright, I guess. Think I owe’im a pole." - Khaz
"T'at purple-haired brat's been 'round t'Wrench pretty often. Hollers out t'fish he's sellin' like they're t'best godsdamned thing ever. Paid 'im a visit once, an' he nearly earned 'imself a blackeye. Heh." - Asher

RP Hooks


Chip-moonlight.png

Want to RP with Chip, but not sure how to start? Check the list below for some helpful pointers! Chances are, if you're out wandering the wilds of La Noscea, you're sure to run into a purple-haired cat somewhere!

CHOOSE WISELY...

Fish Merchant. Are you looking to buy some fish? Perhaps he could be of some assistance.
Bane of the Mole Tribe. There were no survivors, but many a rumor floats around that the one who massacred the Tribe remains alive. Confront him about it at your own peril.
Ex-gypsy. During some of his time in Thanalan, Chip lived under the name "Azrael" and was housed by a traveling gypsy caravan. Perhaps you saw one of their performances, or noticed them from afar? Those were of happier times...
Purple-haired Boy. Some residents of La Noscea still remember the scruffy boy that roamed about Middle La Noscea. Could this be the same boy?
Groot! You may have seen Chip traveling with a baby Goobbue in tow at some point. He has since then grown up, but he's still lurking about in the wilds of La Noscea!
Fishing. Of course he fishes! Is your character interested in learning how to fish, or needing some tips from an expert? Perhaps they could bump into each other. He might even agree to dish out some advice.
Customized. Got an idea of how they might meet? Please feel free to toss me a PM about it. I'm always interested in character interactions, and if it's a new and unique approach, even better!

CURRENT SERVER: Balmung


VOICE CLIP: To Shine


CONTACT INFORMATION: I sometimes RP in-game, as well as in Discord and Skype. You can also reach me here: RPC Profile


OTHER CHARACTERS: Asher


THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND...

Length. Whenever I'm not RPing in-game and through a means that has a very generous character limit, I tend to para-RP. I by no means expect you to match my length. It's just a personal habit of mine.
Response Time**. This honestly varies with me. Sometimes I'll respond within the hour or within the day, but other times it can take me a few days before I have a chance to sit down and write. I certainly won't keep you waiting for more than a week, and I'll usually let you know if it'll be awhile before I can whip up a reply.
Combat. I prefer the "dice-roll" style, but I am always welcome to trying out different methods to satisfy whomever I am RPing with.
Flexibility. I'm always open to OOC discussion during RP. Don't be afraid to ask!
Character Injury. Please discuss with me about temporary/serious injuries that are delivered to my character by yours before carrying it out. I like surprises, but not that kind.
Plots. Plots are like snowballs and I love both. Got an idea for a plot to involve our characters? Please share! I try to be open for anything.


PERSONAL RP LIMITS


I will RP:

Mature Themes: I love dark and gory scenes--as long as they are logical and plot-driven.


Romance**: I don't mind flirting and stuff, but it ultimately depends on the character. Please talk to me if you're interested in RPing a romance with Chip, but please don't expect an instant "couple in a day" thing. Relationships take time to build, so please respect this.


Multi-themed. I love any kind of RP. Humor, romance, drama, angst. You name it! RP to me is all about writing a story, so I am fine with pursuing any type.

I Will NOT RP:

ERP/Rape: 'nuff said.


Permanent Character Death: Because seriously, where's the fun in that?


Breaking Lore: I like Lore. I eat it for breakfast. Please don't kill it :(
