Re: Character Naming chain

erm, Peter Graham, unfortunately...

Five feet tall and a once-successful actor, he had experienced the sort of reality meltdown that comes from being perpetually wrapped in cotton wool and being surrounded by obsequious lickspittles who never tire of telling you just how fantastic you are.

This had led him into becoming a faithful acolyte of a wierd religion of the "lizards are going to eat the earth" *variety.



* They aren't. It's going to be the amphibians.....

Re: Character Naming chain

Lord Roger Pennyfathom..

Despite the lack of all but 5 of his front teeth he was a devil with the ladies. Perhaps there was something to the half-buttoned soiled silk that clothed his upper body, his chest hair a prominent forest of lush ginger curls. The four foot, gold pommeled ivory walking cane at his right side said "I'll have you." while the delicate eyes that rested smolderingly on every woman chimed in "But I'll take you to Burger King first."

What a fox!

Re: Character Naming chain

Julian Schneider (pronounced youlian)


He had many friends and not just those of his own "clique". Unfortunately he wasn't very close to any of them. He just had too many secrets that he didn't want to share. What impressed people about him most was his humility. He was endlessly getting compliments from most of his friends about it. He also, had many different faces. One for each group of friends he was with. All he wanted was to have one face for all of his friends but he couldn't decide on the right one. He was also very skilled in both wizardry and combat.

Pailyan Lonart

White wispy hair and youthful lightning blue eyes, smile... from a weathered timeless face, Hands that belong to a warrior many years younger hold onto an average equally old looking gnarled walking staff. Draped in a brown waxen linen over robe, he looked every bit the traveler he was.

Quordwainer Ladenwaite III

Eyes of hazy green, long hair the color of playful red; he stood only four foot eleven, but housed the heart of a giant. Rotund but energetic, the slightest trace of age in his face; the children loved him. He loved them too, and his ever present smile grew wider than a lorry load when the children came to play.

Michael Jackson

Alien female looked very fierce, tough and dangerous, and was very strict when giving orders, even threatening the penny* with phasor, but now she was very kind to that same penny. And it was quite strange to see someone of her rank talking with penitatas* like that, especially the penitatas that's done so many crimes, including murder.

*penitatas: person sent back to childhood,to live strict life, because of the crime he has commited. shortly: penny

Joan Rivers

Young fool who gets vindictive at the slightest hint of being misunderstood. Starts trends amoung friends and gets upset when things don't go the way he wants them to. Wants control over things that no one could possibly have control over. Childish person who can't leave well enough alone and go his own way. Creative - yes, but quite immature. A person who will inevitably blame others for his own misgivings and never take responsibility for his actions.

Re: Character Naming chain

(Oh this one looks like fun--good idea!)

Clyde Williams

Her vibrant red hair stops just above her shoulders and elegantly frames a beautiful face with a nearly perfect complexion. Standing at about 5'4", her elegant and pleasant figure is clad a form-fitting green tunic, skirt, and a pair of knee-high leather boots. Perhaps these looks have spoiled her though, for behind all the beauty dwells a selfish young woman with a fiery temper and quite the mean streak when provoked.

Re: Character Naming chain

Lanya Beinion

Born as a Lady of the Mirkwood Court, her mother was a Lady of Rivendell and her father a Lord of Mirkwood who was both a friend and Chief Advisor to King Thranduil. As a young child, her parents recognized her affinity for the blade and bow, and her passion for the healing arts and sent her to Rivendell to study under Lord Elrond. There she remained for much of her life, until her parents were maliciously slain by orcs. Upon hearing the news, she raced back to the land of her birth only to discover that is was plagued by orcs, spiders and other foul creatures. Vowing that none should have to suffer the loss she had, her days were spent battling the foul creatures and her nights tending to the wounded. It was on one of these expeditions were she fought alongside Prince Legolas and the two found kinship and true love with one another. Afterwards the two spent countless hours together, their love kindled with each passing moment-much to the disapproval of King Thranduil, who wanted his son to wed a princess of Lothlorien of higher status. Yet, despite his reservations, he reluctantly gave the couple his blessing and the two were soon wed, vowing that they would be faithful to one another.

Re: Character Naming chain

Alassė Elendil

-- If one word could sum up the most prominent characteristics of the young man, "bookish" would be it. Spending every ounce of his free time in the subterranean libraries of Shar, a complex series of offshoots from the Central Library found in the Catrione, he studied not only histories and old mythologies, but languages. In addition to the language spoken by the imae, he'd been one of few the world had ever known to have a comprehensive grasp of the language used by the dragons themselves. He kept this information quiet, however, as the draconic tongue (as it was spoken by their proxies) was widely regarded as a holy one, and certainly not for the likes of a rogue schollar hiding from his mother's meddlesom match-making.

Re: Character Naming chain

Gaylan Winchcombe

Quite the free spirit, she was born in the US, a place called Bend, Oregon in 1974. Her parents had been well known Anti-Vietnam war activists. She was not affected by current fashion trends or the Goth movenment. She was a charmer, someone who could get a guy to buy her a free ticket to Europe without sleeping with him. She fell in with a group of bohemians, and soon became the star of an Indie film called "Where There's Fire". She is currently living with the director who is being "played" like a violin.

Caleb Brody

An averaged sized man with nothing special about his looks, pale-skin like ivory, dark brown hair that falls to his ears in messy curls and golden eyes. He is a young doctour in a post-apocalyptic setting where he gets in trouble with the law becuase he saved somebody he shouldn't have. Falls madly in love with an assassin who is sent to kill him.

Re: Character Naming chain

Freedom Muse Rainbow (goes by Free)

A troubled assassin who is drop-dead gorgeous with classic light blond hair and sky blue eyes. Her real name is Araceli yet she forgets her past and ended up calling herself random words she found by flipping through a dictonary. She is the assassin who falls in love with Caleb, even though she is supposed to kill him.

uh, i think this game got switched about so - using Araceli's own device (ie dictionary) - i shall hereby rename her:

Rook Solaria Forge

ok, uh - need a name for:

curly haired moppet of a wastral waif garden type whose unexpectedly irritable manners - and a certain prediliction for spiders - betray the fact that she is actually a hard-presssed cataloguing agent for the powers that be - investigating the bio-fallout from the transdimensional accident that happened to create the universe.

Aralia Intrepida-Smith

Homeless, but happy as a lark, he sings for his supper with a 5 string guitar on the corner of Ship & High streets in Brighton (a lot of competition for that corner). He does mostly Beatles and The Who, and a haunting version of "Behind Blue Eyes". Scraggly bearded curly hair, some of the local shopkeepers let him shower and wash his clothes now and then out of - what else - pity. Oh well. It's a living I guess.
