Waited until last minute to do this, so just gonna do the 1st part. I'll do the rest when I'm able.

Part 1: The Basics

What is your full name?

Anton Ilescu. Antonius is the full name of his first name.

Where and when were you born?

30 years ago, in the capital city.

Who are/were your parents? (Know their names, occupations, personalities, etc.)

Nikaren Ilescu. A semi important nobleman and courtier in the capital. He's known for the card games and hunting parties that holds for other noblemen in the capital. He's quite skilled at it and has a reputation for it, and he often acts a sort of broker of deals and negotiations among other noblemen. Like most courtiers he is constantly scheming to gain more status.

He let it be known to the public that Antonius is of his blood, but not as a full son because he also let it be known that it wasn't a son of his wife. The result is my character is kind of known as not quite a noble and not quite a bastard, but something in between. Obviously he is lower in status than his brothers, but he is not quite as low of status as if he was a bastard that his father didn't claim in public.

Mother is Rochalyn an acrobat and sometime seer. She's a gypsy or whatever this world's equivalent is. She met Nikaren when the troupe she was traveling with ran into one of Nikaren's hunting parties. The nobles paid the gypsies for some entertainment. Rochalyn caught the nobleman's eye and one thing led to another. She thought the child would have a better life in the capital, and after birth asked Nikaren to take him in, and he not only agreed, but made it public.

Do you have any siblings? What are/were they like?

Two brothers, Ruthia and Kenneth. Ruthia the elder is training to be a knight, but also often gets caught in the father's schemes. He's likely to inherit, both because he's the elder and because it is likely father's wish. Kenneth is training to be a priest, but clearly has interest in politics and would like to inherit. He's not underhanded, however, about it. He's hoping to use his priest connections to his advantage.

Where do you live now, and with whom? Describe the place and the person/people. In an inn's common room.

There are ten men in a room sleeping on cots. There is tons of fleas and it stinks of smoke and unwashed bodies.

What is your occupation?

Not totally sure yet, but possibly an alchemist and procurer. A wizard. Possibly an enchanter if the mechanics work out. Maybe an illusionist if not.

Write a full physical description of yourself. You might want to consider factors such as: height, weight, race, hair and eye color, style of dress, and any tattoos, scars, or distinguishing marks.

Tall and thin, with a shaved head, and a blonde goatee. A slightly long, patrician nose. Clean and careful about his appearance, even in adverse situations such as this common room. Not bald because he has gone bald, but carefully shaves his head every day. Light green eyes.

To which social class do you belong?

Upper class. Father is a mid level nobleman. However, somewhat lower stature due to being not born of the nobleman's wife.

Do you have any allergies, diseases, or other physical weaknesses?

Somewhat physcially lazy. A hedonist. Not a drug addict, but quite willing to try various intoxicants.

Are you right- or left-handed?

left.

What does your voice sound like?

Polished and careful, sometimes almost slipping into servile-sounding.

What words and/or phrases do you use very frequently?

"With all due respect..." "Surely we're all friends here?"

What do you have in your pockets?

Spell components, alchemy tools, perhaps some sort of intoxicating substance, a razor blade, soap, lotion, perfume, a signet ring that is no longer worn, a pipe and tobacco.

Do you have any quirks, strange mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics?

Careful of offending others, a survival trait he picked up in the court. Something he takes it too far, and may offend or seem inauthentic to some. Hedonism and an interest in various intoxicants, including smoking tobacco. Also fond of gambling and card playing, given who his father is. In general, open to trying new things. Curious and interested in the nature of the world.

Also, I want to add that in the last 5 years he joined a pleasure cult that has formed around the drunken King Ward. It's basically a large group in the court made up of hangers on, kiss asses, hedonists, alchemists and procurers. Some of these people are trying to gain even a tiny amount of favor from the King or his family. Others are just there for the parties and orgies. There can be priests of a pleasure god or even an evil god involved with the cult if you want , Chris. That's optional.

Anton is also somewhat chummy with the court's professional spies. Anton was quite interested in them because they likely know things. They found him useful for spying on what the hell the cult is up to at any given time. The spies likely work for one of King Ward's relatives, or perhaps an important official like the Chancellor, etc. because King Ward is a drunk.

Part of the reason Anton left the capital was to get away from the cult. He greatly enjoyed it a long while and also made some good money out of it by being a procurer, but he woke up one day and decided it had become too much. Also it was interfering with advancing his magical skills. In addition, he is trying to gain independence from his father, who would like to involve Anton in his political schemes. So he has just hit the road recently.

Oh and on the subject of his magical skills, likely he inherited that from his mother. He first noticed odd things happening when he was 12 and 13. One of the court wizards, Isaac, noticed it and figured out what was happening. Isaac agreed to train him in wizardry, but at the price of servitude. So most of Anton's teen years he was a servant and student. This went on until his father put a stop to it, deciding it was undignified for one of his station. But it was enough to get him to where he is at level 1.
