I'm not big on the idea of making many entire threads for individual characters, so I've decided to condense them, assuming I make more than one.
Name: Melanie du Pont
Birthplace: Talks none about this, presents different false papers to officials in different regions and kindly asks others not to inquire.
Appearance: 112 lbs, 5'5", somewhat tanned white skin, thick and wavy dark brown hair kept medium-short, dark green eyes; has quaint, but desirable bodily and facial features. (A picture would naturally come if I got into this, but I'd have to sketch her.)
Occupations: Traveller, troubadour, visual artist, doctor, scholar, and secretly-practicing mage.
Items: A leather duffle bag, survival equipment, professional equipment, a few books and papers, varying quantities of money, personal trinkets.
Clothing: Wide-legged black wool pants that fit snugly at the hips and waist, an off-white loose collarless shirt tucked into her pants, a form-hugging grey tweed waistcoat with an 8x4 double-breasted button closing, a large black leather belt worn outside of her waistcoat (pants are held up by button suspenders), a long and finely-made black wool cape with a black silk velvet plush collar, and occasionally-shined black leather lace-up boots.
Personality: Melanie is a friendly and mostly quiet, but cunning and tricky customer, with a lot of little quirks here and there. Many meet her, and many almost feel as though they know her, but very few really do. She is gifted with an ability to think critically, existentially, and analytically, and so makes a good conversationalist when she gets past her anxiety. She stays seemingly out of the way, but has fun surreptitiously interfering in affairs. She is most comfortable alone, but desires company from time to time, and shows a great deal of humanity to others though she avoids them for the most part. People sometimes wonder why she is so secretive, and the truth that she'll respond with is that she has few secrets of interest to others, but many for herself. Despite her reservation and guile, she never comes off as anything but warm; she is filled with emotion and depth, and what she does with her role in the world frequently leaves marks.
Skills: Socially, she has a great skill in manipulation, can craft a deeply convincing web of lies, and can be very charming when she needs to be, but strictly never uses her abilities for ill-will. These paired with her notable agility and capability in stealth have led to some saying that she'd "put a bouquet of flowers in a dagger's sheath". As a physician - which is the primary thing she went to school for - she is skilled as a field medic, and makes money treating civilians and military alike as she travels. Artistically, she is a skilled singer, pianist, lyricist, painter, and sculptor. She finds great enjoyment as well as extra income from each of these things. Magically... her inclination is not so clear, and known to her alone. What can be noted is that she seems to dabble in illusionist, mystic, and spiritual magic primarily.
Karmic Alignment: Neutral Good
Backstory: Most everything about her past is shrouded in mystery, but she spins yarns from time to time, often with varying twists in each telling so as to, as she says: "keep them alive." It does to note that she has a northwest Terran accent and a university degree, which tell the only two real and solid things about her background.
