General:
E-mail (OPTIONAL):
mathshark@yahoo.com

Alt Name:
Ryssa

A brief description of your character:
Standing at 7'5" with a weight of 315 pounds and looking enough like a hyena that only her bipedal stance would easily distinguish her as a humanoid, the gnoll could certainly appear suited for a mercenary job. Brown leather armour leaves her limbs bare, not that they would need the extra protection with the layer of fur there. With the natural weapons of her species, she never bothered to obtain or learn to use artificial ones. She's short-tempered and easily succumbs to her own emotions and instincts, showing little of the restraint expected by those with laws governing behavior.

Why/How is your character in Skuldhellir:
She was told it might be a good place for a mercenary to find work, so she got someone to guide her there for a change of scenery and maybe a permanent home. No one bothered to point out the species prejudices that exist there.

Magic (OPTIONAL):
---Max Preps (1-10):
N/A
---Schools:
N/A

Strengths:
---Natural:
-Large, strong, powerfully built, covered in fur
-Between her build and pelt, she's hard to damage
-Hyena-like jaw strength
-Fighting strength fitting of her size
-Claws and sharp, carnivore-style teeth

---Learned:
-Fluent in gnollish
-Speaks enough common to get by in basic conversation
-Hand -or, in her case, paw- -to-hand fighting.

---Supernatural:
N/A

Weaknesses:
-Can be subject to species prejudice due to being a gnoll
-Large and slow, cannot dodge well
-Intelligence is roughly equal with a human child
-Not fluent in common, has trouble communicating
-Cannot read or write
-Behavior is governed by instinct more than reason -- she reacts without thinking, and fights without strategy or planning

Unless you want a different "aye" from someone else. Still, I'm cool with the numbers, Ed.
