PostSubject: Torin Crowley   Thu Jul 01, 2010 8:26 am

Save for not being the brightest tool in the shed sanity wise, Torin had a relatively uneventful childhood. He enjoyed toys, games, and horrible horrible jokes, and being a downright brat.

Nothing more than meandering about doing his day to day life, did the eccentric jester with a toymaking fancy think he'd ever end up where he is today. Nor does he probably think about it. He wasn't always the healthiest or most stable of people. He lacked in common sense.

Torin resided in a keep somewhere far north in a German area, and was their finest, if most annoying entertainment. Like any keep, this place had it's ups and downs, and it's darker crowds. Torin, lacking common sense(if he ever had it), dabbled deeper and deeper into these crowds, obtaining magical knowledge a man of his destructive and insane capabilities should never touch.

His acts became more interesting as he aged and grew further with these crowds, somewhat in his earlier adult years. He continued to practice his carving, and got inventive with his toy skills. Being an ecstatic fool with a lack for proper morale, he got very creative and skilled in the craft.

Not yet at the peak of his life, our nutcase only pushed himself further into the depths of hell. Being a basic wizard by this point, and not exactly the most stable of the darker crowd, he pulled a horrible move. It cost him his job. It cost him even more of his sanity, and sealed his fate as becoming the village idiot no matter where he may go.

An enormous, monstrous demon, known no more by the name of "Shen'shin of the Storm" was brought in by a warlock to destroy the keep. A demon of darkness, storm, and able to control vast fields of electricty. For weeks they fought to fend off this force, barely surviving. And then Torin, with his limited knowledge and vast stupidity in dark arts and insanity saved it.

They bonded. They fused. The armor and the man fed eachother and spoke. Thought of as the greatest heathen and liability to not only the circle of his practioners, but to his people, Torin was to be sentenced to exile, if not perhaps, execution.

Feeding off demonic energies made him wilder, crazier, and he had a second voice. Rarely did he listen to it. Rarely did he want to. In a split-second act with the help of the demon, they made to transform. Not expecting this, and the overwhelming number of the crowd who(while not seeking to help Torin) took advantage of the situation for the years they had been shunned and mistreated, the Keep was overwhelmed, still recovering from the previous attack. Torin barely made it out, but when he did, he took a good hunk of the treasury and has managed to live off it for ages... or at least, waste it.

From that day, Mr. Crowley has wandered. He doesn't seem like much a threat upfront. In fact, he seems more like the village idiot. A toy maker and former jester by trade, Torin's insanity and dependency on the energy has only grown. It spread like a wild fire. And while he may generally have a smile on his face, a certain sense of... companionship to his 'friends', you never know when the morbid moron just might snap.... Or just throw a tea party.

Aye, and while this isn't really in story mode, it's a decent outline about Torin.

*Height: 5'8
*Weight: 135
*Age: 42
*Hair: Grey Dreadlocks
*Eyes: Deep green, generally with bags under them
*Bathes: Not regularly
*Voice: Completely uneven, prone to cracking, and extremely inflective. It seems to meander around the level of an alto or tenor, save for when it shifts.

Strongly Chaotic Neutral

Torin has no real alignment. He is truely and unnaturally unpredictable. This is a curse and a gift, yet he does have his points were he will choose something in a definitive sense. For the most part, he's a glory hog, an attention whore, and a complete nut. While he lives to serve himself, his demon, and on occassion, the few friends he has- he is not afraid to do something just to boost his reputation or to earn some street credit. This includes playing the hero. Easily bribed and convinced if you play your cards right or perhaps... just ask him, and surprisingly useful as well.

This does not change the fact the man is a free spirit, and a fucked up one at that. At times it's better to stay out of his way, because you never know when he might just flip out.

Weapon(s), detailed description of each:
*Butcher knife- Apparently, this is in his toolbox of... toymaking necessities. Luckily this is the only off thing other then parts.

Skill and experience with their professions: Torin has had years of practice in his profession.

On top of that, considering he used to be a performer, he used a lot of his profession in the job.

Skill and experience in battle: He has experience fighting with his magic, but other then that, he's not really powerful or well trained.

Pre-prime, in their prime, or post-prime: Magically and intelligently he's in his prime. Physically, he seems to be leaving it.

Torin can sense souls do to his extensive dabbling in the dark arts.

Almost absolutely nothing other then he's not boring. Unless you like morbidly insane old men.

Just... about everything else.
