Hell yea, i gots me a one'of'a'kind!
@Neosquid: The races generally do not interbreed, although there are a few Fae/human hybrids, denoted by a mix of silver hair and whatever color hair they inherited from their human parent. Mixed breeds like Exsul are near unheard-of.
Giga said he liked the rough draft for my villain SU, so when I get up in the morning I'm just gonna edit some wording and post it. The good/neutral SU should be posted today or tomorrow.
Sounds good Nick. If I get time and decide I can do it,
Then I will go ahead and make another villain. It all depends on how much time I have on my hands and if I can come up with another idea that I am satisfied with.
Can't break my chain and make a good character now... Never been good with good characters.
Name: Gale Elvek
Country: Born in Erigan, lives in Lokasen.
Appearance: Around 5'10", with somewhat long, brown hair. Fair-skinned, with sharp green eyes. She has a scar on her right arm, which shows slight discoloration, though the scar does not appear to be fresh. She is not particularly athletic, though remains rather thin anyways. She commonly wears a long, white lab coat, plains shoes, and glasses. Her hair changes from being neatly pinned up to somewhat wild and unkempt, depending on the work she is doing.
Biography: Gale was born into a household of scientists on Erigan. From an early age, her parents began tutoring her in engineering. She showed incredible natural ability for the sciences, and excelled in school. When she was 12, splinters manifested and attacked her village. Though her house was damaged, the splinters were repelled, and there were minimal casualties. Though this attack might be considered minor in the history of aravad, it forever changed Gale's life. A splinter, isolated from the rest, spotted Gale. In the blink of an eye, it was upon her. Though it was slain almost instantly, its claws reached her arm. The wound was not deep, but seithr flowed into it. Her parents rushed her to a hospital, and the doctor diagnosed the wound as potentially fatal, as the seithr concentration was at toxic levels. And yet, when the doctor returned with the equipment to ambutate, he noticed that the seithr had not spread at all. It did not seem to be harming the young girl in any way. Perplexed, the doctor contacting splinter specialists from around Erigan, but none had an explanation for why the seithr had ceased to threaten her. Gale turned from engineering, and resolved upon researching splinters, turning her aim to Biology.
As she grew older, she realized that there was only so much to be learned from the records and researchers in Erigan, and that she would have to do research of her own: and that meant collecting freshly slain splinters. Erigan, however, is not home to a high concentration of splinter incursions. At the age of 20, she moved from the laboratories of Erigan to the microbubbles of Lokasen, to try and figure out what splinters are, and why their "natural generations" have begun occurring. What is the connection these beings have to seithr, and what can be done about it?
Gale remains in constant contact with the biologists of Erigan, though she researches by herself. She is a prodigy among researchers, having already made waves in the field of Splinter Research, despite her young age.
Personality: Gale is a relatively mild-mannered and calm person, that is, unless something grabs her interest. She is obsessive with her research, to the point where she has been called "crazy" on more than one occasion. She also tends to be fairly introverted, and her social skills are not as refined as her company might wish. She enjoys a good laugh as well as any, though her sense of humor commonly differs from those around her. When research goes slowly, she also tends to consume alcohol with a rather high frequency. Somehow, her tolerance remains low.
Familiar: Gale has two familiars: a scalpel which uses seithr to cut through splinter bodies, and her lab coat, which uses seithr as a form of protection against seithr-heavy environments and objects.
Other skills: She knows as much as any of the top researchers in Erigan about Splinters. She has incredibly steady hands (as are required in her position), and is generally rather intelligent. She possesses no fighting ability. Her glasses do not just correct her normally crippling near-sightedness; they also can be switched to an infrared view, as well as a seithr-detecting view. She made them herself...and her fashion sense is not her strongest skill.

Also, The actual RP thread will be posted fairly soon. You can still create characters in this thread after the actual story has begun, however!
You should copy paste the SU's in spoiler tags in at least one of the OP's, as to make it easier to find them. Or link to them. Heck, if you wanted you could do both.
He's right you know.
Name: Aestus "Pumice" Clayborne
Species: Half Fae, half dwarf
Country: Born in Ustuk, lives in Lokasen
Allegiance: Aeolus ("Evil")
Appearance: Pumice is a very small and frail person. He is only about 4 feet tall, and weighs about 60 pounds. He has long silver hair which covers his eyes most of the time. He has no facial fair. His legs are atrophied, and he is usually sitting down while not using his (soon to be described) Familiar. He wears a red t-shirt with simple yet artistic drawings of Splinters printed on it. Over this t-shirt he wears a black zip-up hoodie, which manages to fit him nicely despite his small size. The same cannot be said about his jeans. He wears extremely baggy black jeans which he supports with a chain belt. The jeans more than conceal his useless legs, continuing well past his actual feet. The jeans are rather torn up, and are completely shredded at the bottom. Although his feet are almost never seen, he wears red socks. Shoes would be pointless considering his inability to walk.
Biography: Aestus Clayborne (who goes by the nickname of "Pumice", fitting of his low weight) was born in Ustuk to Harold Clayborne, a well-known Dwarf blacksmith, and an unknown elf mother. Pumice was born abnormally small and scrawny for a dwarf, and even a half dwarf. While he was very fast, he had almost no muscle mass, as you might expect. However, his father being the forging obsessed, all-business dwarf he was, Pumice was forced to partake in various activities that required physical labor. However, due to his frailness, he was mostly a burden to the other workers. The frustration many of the workers had with Pumice caused them to bully him significantly. Some of them merely bullied him because they found it amusing, of course. As a result of this cruelty directed at him, Pumice loathed the people of Ustuk, the dwarves especially.
One day, upon his coming of age , Pumice was burdened with the tradition of "Touching Ustuk’s Heart". Despite being obviously incapable of completing the task, his father made him do it anyway. During his underground journey, Pumice almost died due to an accident. His legs were completely crushed, and he lost all use of them. Completely unable to work (moreso than before), Pumice was forced to more-or-less stay at home.
During this time, Pumice became increasingly interested in various devices, such as video games and the internet. Many video games featured the "good" people of Aravad fighting the "evil" Spinters. He became increasingly fond of watching the Spinters destroy virtual versions of the Ustuk people, due to his hatred of them and their culture, which he considered "barbaric". He became somewhat of a "splinter fanboy". Pumice did more than just play games, however, he also learned much about technology in general. He secretly built his own Familiar during his isolation. His Familiar granted him the ability to sprout wings made of seither, allowing limited flight.
Eventually, during a particularly large Splinter attack, an energy barrier was put up to defend Pumice's city. Being incredibly technologically skilled at this point, Pumice hacked into the system and shut down the barriers, resulting in many civilian casualties. The Kingdom Guard figured out during the chaos, but they were too late; Pumice had already escaped, courtesy of his Familiar. However, before leaving the city altogether, Pumice went out of his way to cut down his father using his hand scythes.
Being the Splinter fanboy he was, Pumice traveled to Lokasen to study their behavior up close. He set up a home for himself in a desolate, mostly abandon town. He learned more about Splinters in two ways. As previously, he prowled the internet for information. However, due to the commonality of Splinters in Lokasen, he was also able to observe them more closely. Eventually he upgraded his Familiar to include a dangerous new power: the ability to attract Splinters to himself (will go into more detail later). While this offered him no control over the Splinters aside from being able to influence their concentration, this was enough to effectively replace the population of his town with Splinters. He moved to a tower in the very same town, as to better be better able to keep a safe distance from the Splinters if they were to attack him.
Pumice was hired by Aeolus at some point, and means to aid the psychopath with his technological genius and his Familiar. Pumice's motivation seems to stem from both sheer hatred and Splinter fanboyism.
Personality: Although Pumice hates dwarves, and to a lesser extent Ustukians (correct term?) above all else, his hatred extends to almost everyone, in actuality. He doesn't enjoy social interaction, and prefers to stay alone with his devices, which include video games, among other things. He does enjoy anonymously trolling people over the internet, however. He's an avid Splinter "fanboy", and is prone to collecting anything to do with them. When he does actually confront somebody in person, he tends to be rather sarcastic, impatient, and mean. He's also rather childish and immature, which is largely due to his relatively young age.
Familiar: Pumice's Familiar, which is physically shaped like a skull and crossbones, is implanted into his back. He can use it to sprout bat-like wings made of seithr. These wings require a great deal of seithr energy to use and maintain, however, and while he can hold more seither energy than most due to being half elf, he still cannot fly for more than around 15 to 40 minutes (depending on how hard he's flying) without needing to recharge. His Familiar has been upgraded to include the ability to summon Splinters to his location using some sort of signal. While it does indeed attract Splinters to him, they can only determine his exact position if they get close enough. This is, of course, assuming the signal is on; the signal is turned off unless he has a reason to attract Splinters.
Other Skills: Pumice is not very avid in combat outside of being able to attract Splinters to his location. If he needs to fight, he does carry two hand scythes which he can be pretty effective with. His Familiar also allows him to fly at potentially high speed. Altogether, though, his fighting prowess is average at best, mostly due to his frailty and reliance on seither to even move.
As stated, Pumice is very good with technology. He can hack into nearly anything, and can also create various devices. His ability to create hands on is largely due to being forced to work with blacksmiths on Ustuk.
I like making nerd characters, ehehehe.
