Okay, so I was vague in the history because I'm planning on revealing more of it later. I also uploaded a picture of him for my profile picture. Oh, and I just have one question. Is Manannan still on Mordack's Island, or has Hagatha gotten him yet?

Name: Renwick
Race: Human
Age: 32
Occupation: Member of the Black Cloak Society
Appearance: Renwick has hair so black that it blends right in with the black cloak that he is never seen without—except when he’s in disguise, that is. His eyes are in direct contrast with his dark attire, as they are a striking amber that can appear gold in a certain light. Renwick’s facial features include a prominent brow, a pointed nose with a distinctive bump on it, and a very square chin with a bit of stubble. He’s somewhat muscular—what you’d expect from a kind of power-obsessed sorcerer—and his height is around 5”10’.
Personality: Renwick generally tries to keep his emotions in check. And by tries to, I mean that he fails. He’s very quick-tempered, and if he’s angry, he’s sure to show it. This tends to get him in a lot of unnecessary fights, especially with other members of the Society of the Black Cloak. He tends to be stubborn and arrogant, and because of this he is a really hard guy to like.
Inventory: Along with the black cloak that he always has on hand, Renwick carries an oak wand that he often uses for iconomancy (for which he also carries a guide).
History: Renwick has a complicated past. He grew up in a small town in Serenia, where he formed a particular disliking to the people of his town and learned from a very powerful wizard. After leaving his teacher, who he felt was not teaching him the kind of magic he wanted to learn, he went off on his own. Soon, he met the wizard Shadrack, a powerful and high-ranking member of the Black Cloak Society, who promised to teach him magic that would make him more powerful than he could dream. Renwick accepted, and quickly rose in both magical prowess and rank in the Society. Now, he has been ordered to begin a takeover of Serenia, the very land where he grew up. His first task in doing so is finding a suitable fortress…
This is Nifty, Royal Heir.

I'm like, an adult now or something? Sounds fake, but okay.

At first I was gonna say Manannan was still there... but then I realized... if no one had gone to the island since Mordack's death, Manannan would still be in that bag. And after all this time, he'd definitely be dead. So, I would say someone, not necessarily Hagatha, but someone has already been to the island since Mordack's defeat. I don't see why they would leave the cat there, but I'm sure we can devise a reason if you'd like him to still be there.

Is Renwick's former master Crispin or am I reading into this too much?

Nah, Manannan can have left. It's probably better that way.

 :suffer:

Okay, I'm just kidding. Yeah, Crispin was his master. But it's not necessarily the same town.

Huh, I guess I wasn't vague enough...

How many powerful good wizards is probably a better question.

It's okay. There's still more to his backstory that I was *much* vaguer about.

Okay... I think we just need more players!

So far our cast list is:
Good Guys:
Cassima = Haids1987

Baddies:
The Father = crayauchtin
Elsa Valiash = crayauchtin
Renwick = I_am_so_nifty
Unknown = Darthkiwi

So.... who else wants in? I mean, this is a chance to be anyone in the series, basically. How can ya pass that up?

I think I've mentioned this before, but I could probably do a good character too...

...I should get started on that.

I assumed I'd take on at least one good character as well, but until we've decided who it doesn't really count.

I'm also hoping we can get a lot more players in on this!!

No need to come up with backstory if you play characters from the games.... :D

Just please let me have an outlet for all this frustration and pain? XD Preferably in stabbing villains/other villains for self-defence? XD

I could be a bored magician's apprentice who sets out in Serenia, a sort of Simon the Sorcerer meets KQ5. :) (...and it would give me an excuse to dig into all of the magic ever in all of KQ.)

I'm curious if our previous cast list is still relevant.... because as I recall we were in desperate need for good guys. :P

Good Guys:
Cassima = Haids1987

Baddies:
The Father = crayauchtin
Elsa Valiash = crayauchtin
Renwick = I_am_so_nifty
Unknown = Darthkiwi

Yeah, I think I_am_so_nifty is probably out but otherwise.... I dunno!

We can add a bored magicians apprentice to that if you can give him a name, Delling. :P And, yeah, Deloria.... specificity might be good. At least pick a side. :P "Genocidal good guy" sounds right up your alley but I'm not sure it's a real thing. :P
