Bwahaha, first to enter.
The entry's a bit loose, but since it's beta, I don't feel the need to be uber detailed. :3


NAME: Yu'sharazi Ko'taish
[b]RACE: Drowolath
AGE[/b]: 116
GENDER: Male
PROFESSION: Noble
BACKGROUND: Yu'sharazi is a young noble male, trained by his clan in matters that were considered relevant to him. Through either indifference or some form of kindness, his mother let him decide on his own what to make of his life after giving him what was deemed a suitable education.
After dabbling in a variety of different professions, Yu found the excitement and challenge of training and 'collecting' gladiators to be appealing, and decided for now to devote his resources to it.
PHYSICAL APPEARANCE: Yu'sharazi has large violet eyes and tends to have a lopsided upturn to his lips that hints at possible mischief. He has a very strait nose with a downward hook single piercing, and his ears are pierced as well. His bangs dyed with streaks of emerald frame his face, the longest strands coming almost to his shoulders. The rest of his is behind him, neatly kept in a long ponytail, held by a jeweled clasp, sticking up around six inches and bearing a white feather. The ponytail extends to around an inch or two above his ankle, while in the clasp. Bangs aside, it's mostly undyed, with the exception of the last two feet, which have a painstakingly executed gradient of color from blue to purple.
Yu'sharazi is nicely sized, an inch and a half taller then the average male. His body is less impressive, however- while nicely muscled, he has a lean build.
He normally wears spidersilk robes, mostly white with details, ribbons and feathers in the colors of his clan. He often wears an intricately designed and colorful sash around his waste, and his shoes are usually subtly raised to give him a more impressive appearance. He also has a prized Peacock Feather, which he wears in a special hair clasp when he dresses up.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: (Gonna use this for a glimpse of his personality. :3) Yu's a bit spoiled, but nonetheless friendly and approachable. He enjoys fine and beautiful things, from artwork and food to the people around him. He can be hard to please, with a meandering attention span and is known to be difficult to please. Yet when he does find something he truly likes, he goes at it with a passionate enthusiasm that shocks those who don't know him well enough- he has a reputation for being on the lazy side.
Yu has a playful nature and a love for games, and with that approach, is likely to end up enjoying his time 'playing' with his 'pet' gladiators.

Ok, time to break into the gaming section as the other routs of boordrum relief have hidden themselves away from me...

Name: Neal'la Dura'bien
Race: Drowlath
Age: 230
Gender: Female
Profession: Soldier
Background: A former member of a caravan protecting mercenary agency, Neal'la spent a large number of years passing through the surface, various tunnels within the underdark, and the many cities within. She frequented Mharashad during her days and noticed a rather booming market for the gladitorial sports and fancied the idea of taking in and training her own gladiator. Due to some in-fighting within the agency she worked with, Neal left it in search of greener pastures. Instead of imediatly putting her name out as yet another random merc looking for work, she decided to try her hand at the arena.
Physical apperance: A somewhat short and lithe woman with jaw length bright blue hair and violet eyes. Her skin is extreemly dark and covered in bright white tribal tatoos from forehead to toes, anyone with experience on the surface would recognise them as markings worn by warriors of a feral tribe. She wears blue and violet clothing consisting of loose trousers, soft boots, a cropped and sleevless bodyglove-like top accessorized with a large scarf that usually coveres the lower half of her face. Both ears are adorned with multiple small golden loop earrings.
Additional: Her skills specialize in light fighting and had partaken in at least one assassination in her days. The armor she owns is a good quality set of hardened studded leather designed specifically for rapid movement and high manuverability. The weapons she owns are a set of twin shortswords with a slightly curved outer edge.

Edit: If ya want more, I'll expand on it.

This is what I'm freaking talking about. :3 Well done, both of you. I'll be putting up the market and lobby threads as soon as I finish with them. We'll assume the upkeep has been paid for all new characters, this week.

ADK: Good stuff. Yu-nai has 1000 longs to start, allowance of 275L/week, starting upkeep of 200L/week. (Net of 75L a week, profit)


Si'athothi: I don't need any more expansion, what you've got is perfect. Neal'la has 800L, starting upkeep 150L/week. She can train in Speed Fighter to 3 (out of 6) and (if she doesn't play fair, I'll allow) Dirty Fighter style to 2. Also, so long as your equipment doesn't go above six pieces, you won't need to pay maintenance upkeep.

Gear Owned (4 pieces)
Short swords (2)
Studded leather cuirass (1)
Leather headgear (1)


Don't worry, I'll explain all that soon. ^_^;;

NAME: Telana'sana Mirri'Kirry
RACE: Drowolath
AGE: 125
GENDER: Female
PROFESSION: Trader

BACKGROUND: Belonging of one of the minor trading clans Telana has grown up around Mharashad her entire life. During her time as a merchant she has been known to be a shrewd but fair shopkeeper. Her cool and detached demeanor allowing her to rationalize her decisions, even in the face of a screaming customer. Looking for a way to increase the clan's status she has decided that the gladiator market is a worthy place to make her mark.

PHYSICAL APPEARANCE: Standing at an average height and build, Telana usually wears tight fitting robed to accent her form. Most of the robes are dulcet grays with lavender accents. She has light gray eyes and her hair is medium length, with the bangs cut short and level. Both ears are pierced and she wears a metal feather earring, dyed to the lavender color of her clan, on her left ear. While not wearing the greatest of quality of cloth, her clothing is immaculate clean and pressed, and wears a violet shade of lipgloss and nail polish.

NAME: Zohraisha Veisal Nal'Sarkoth
RACE: Drowolath
AGE: 177
GENDER: Female
PROFESSION: Noble
BACKGROUND: Zohraisha was born to one of the Nal'Sarkoth nobles attached to the clan's Mharashad embassy, and a Mharashadi male. Pampered and spoiled, she turned to gambling as a source of entertainment, leaving her younger brother - an accomplished trader- to pick up her debts. Having lately been banned from the card-tables (and having to wear the "banned from gambling" bracelet clearly visible at all times) due to accruing too much debt, she has now turned her attentions to the Green, finding a loophole in the laws which would let her continue her favored pastime. How she will manage a stable of gladiators, however, noone knows. Her mother, ever doting on Zohraisha, has approved of the project, so she is free to make the best of it.
PHYSICAL APPEARANCE: Zohraisha has the characteristic slanted almond-shaped eyes of the Mharashadi drowolath, yellow in color. Her hair, a natural white, is dyed according to her whims, currently it is dyed a very light blue. She wears a pale blue dress with high splits on both sides, long sleeves and neck. (Image)
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
This is the first effort Zohraisha has had to take on her own since she finished school. She is excited, but clueless. All she really cares about is that it will (she hopes) satisfy her need for gambling. She has a rather addictive personality, and while she sometimes regrets taking up the rather expensive habit of smoking dried Ivat from the surface, she simply cannot live without it. Not that she's tried to quit. Other than being used to get what she wants she is rather easygoing, rarely thinking about consequences to her own actions, as someone else has always been there to cover for her. The ban against gambling is the first consequence she's had to tackle on her own.

You all are going to make me sound repetitive. Well-freaking-done! I love it, every last concept.

Nagimalice: 1250L to start, 250L base upkeep. Since we're assuming upkeep has been paid for the week, we'll assume so has the profit. I love the new minor clan idea. -thumbs up!-

Thalar: And so, we finally find a use for the gambler and her bro! XD 1000L to start (from mum), 200L/week upkeep, 275L/week allowance [Edit: Sorry for forgetting her allownace! Fixed!]

NAME: Sayrehlyn Teijou'ar
RACE: Drowolath
AGE: 227
GENDER: Female
PROFESSION: Slaver
BACKGROUND: Sayrehlyn is the owner of her family's slave trading business, having inherited it a long time ago after her mother died. Soon after taking control of the business, it became apparent to her that her mother had been completely incompetent at handling the finances as well as the slaves. She soon rectified the situation however, beating the ill-bred slaves into shape and smoothing out the dire financial problems by selling the trained slaves. Her continuous success in breaking the wills of and conditioning her slaves provides her with a moderate income. Recently however, she took an interest in the arena, the prospect of using gladiators to fight and possibly increasing her wealth appealing to her.
PHYSICAL APPEARANCE: Tall and unsmiling, Sayrehlyn does not seem like a very approachable woman. She is pleasant to look at though, with an evenly featured face, her almond-shaped eyes of a dark green colour. Her snowy white hair reaches just past her shoulders, some strands dyed a golden colour. Her body is well-trained, her muscles firm and strong to be able to properly keep the slaves in line. She generally dresses in comfortable silk robes.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Sayrehlyn owns a domestic slave, more specifically a personal service slave; a young, pretty lightelf girl named Nare, who caters to her every whim, performing the various tasks given to her with care, to make sure her mistress is pleased with her.

NAME: Illen'sana Fell'sirrin
RACE: Drowolath
AGE: 187
GENDER: Female
PROFESSION: Slaver
BACKGROUND: Illen'sana, or Illenai, as she allow the regulars to call her, is the owner of "Tempting Faith" a small brothel in the second tier of the city. She rents out her slaves, both male and female and after her customers grow tired of the same faces, sells them and buys new ones. Seeing many patrons come through her establishment gives her enough material for her favourite pastime, gossip. Illen'sana loves know who is doing what, with whom, what they are after and doesn't mind making up some extra details to spice up some stories. Yet after running the brothel for 120 years ennui started to strike, it seemed as if she had seen and done it all, she needed something new to play with. She now wants to use money from "Tempting Faith" to invest in arena slaves; she's well aware of the risks but expects that her contacts might give her an edge in this facinating business.

PHYSICAL APPEARANCE: IF one would ask her family of a description of Illen'sana they would call her a ditsy, flirtatious, golden eyed, drowolath woman who doesn't act her age. Her clothing style might give a new-comer the idea that she is one of the ladies of pleasure instead of the madam of the house. She wears loose but long flowing kimono dresses with bright and colourful overcoats most with a butterfly pattern, which is also the symbol of the brothel. She has white hair but colours the bangs ruby-red and wears it loosely pulled up with decorated hair sticks.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Malirr is Illen'sana's personal slave; the young male drowolath had attracted her attention when he was one of her boys. She would use all sort of excuses to keep him from working with customers and eventually decided to keep him for herself. Even tough he has no fighting skill whatsoever Malirr still sees it as his responsibility to keep his lady safe when she goes out into the city and protect the boys and girls from the brothel when customers overstep their boundaries.

Miburo: Woo, good concept. I am thoroughly appreciating how everyone is coming up with the most interesting stories under the professional classifications. I was worried it would be too restrictive!

Anyways! Just like Runes; 950L Starting cash, 200L/week starting upkeep, 300L/week income. Welcome to the City of Dreams!

Name: Jhael'na Cal'deri (Pronounced: Zhal-na)
Race: Drowolath
Age: 203
Gender: Female
Profession: Slaver

Background:

Jhael'na was a troublesome child from the day she was born into her mother's slave business. As she grew up, she was constantly ignoring her duties as a contributor to her family, spending the hard earned profits of the family business on her few friends and arena fights. As punishment for squandering the money of the business, her mother saw fit to make her daughter one of the slave trainers, with the added benefit of forcing her daughter to learn about the business anyway. The anger which Jhael'na had for her mother resulted into brutal training methods for the slaves under her care. Very few slaves coming out healthy, the techniques used by Jhael'na was too brutal even for her mother's standards. After a few more weeks of even more injured merchandise under her daughter's supervision, her mother decided to let Jhael'na free of her obligations, closing the door on daughter once and for all. When her mother thought she would be calling for the last meeting with her daughter, Jhael'na took that opportunity to brutally kill her mother, finally able to claim revenge for the punishment which she felt did not deserve. The few years she was a trainer under her mother did let Jhael'na learn though, and gain complete control over her mother's business. Using an iron fist to instill fear into her slave merchandise, Jhael'na's brutal methods to break the wills of her slaves allowed quick submission, allowing even quicker profit. Her interest from her youth has not left Jhael'na though, the thought of betting on the arena fights has let her take one step further in the wanting of buying a gladiator in the hopes of increasing her profit even more.

Description:

Wears a thick leather corset, which opens up to brazenly show her neck, if not for the heavy brown robe which Jhael'na wears which helps to cover her upper torso, with her own personal whip hidden on her waist. However, usually the robe is left open in the front showing plain, non-see through spidersilk pants and rugged leather boots. Her hair remains the natural white, until it reaches her orange braid in the back which reaches to the small of her back.

Additional Information:

A rare drowussu slave has caught the eye of Jhael'na, captured some time ago from further in the underworld. This slave was very young and fearful of her life after she received her first whipmark from her mistress, yet there was a certain amount of fascination with the lighter skin servant that Jhael'na liked, deciding then to keep the slave as her own. Giving her greater care than the rest of her stock, the slave was given the name of Mei'la, and kept as a pleasure slave. However, it should be noted that the drowussu acts out of fear as much as it does of submission to please her mistress.

Kail'odian: Interesting. She must have good turn around to make up for "damaged goods". :3 But I'm sure there's always people willing to pick slaves up for teh cheep. 950L Starting cash, 200L/week starting upkeep, 300L/week income.

Meckruco: I don't think you read the setting thoroughly, but that's okay, because I rambled on for quite a while and I'm sure you don't have that much free time. ;) The background itself is fine, except for the part where he's part of the Sarghress; that Great Clan doesn't have a presence in Mharashad.

So, I would suggest removing his current affiliation with that Clan (it's alright if that's where he learned to fight and if he belonged to them for a while, but he wouldn't really be able to participate in the gladiator games if he was still working for them). If that isn't clear, let me know and I'm glad to help further!
