Family Trees and Recruiting Thread

Post by Edwin Manaspark on Thu Nov 26, 2015 10:48 am

I have noted that the previous family recruiting thread has been inactive for a fair amount of time, so this thread will function in a similar way as the last one.

This thread's main purpose is describing specific things that the family is known for, such as eye, skin or hair colour. Anything noted may be something insignificant, as well as something very easy to notice. It's aimed towards giving people an idea of what families are open and not, in case they'd want to broaden someone's family on another front, so you know what to strive for, were you to make a character of the family. Overviews of family histories are also welcome.

Do note that the families here are open for anyone to 'join', unless stated otherwise by the people writing here, so you will not need confirmation by the player, but talking to them about it beforehand to get a proper perspective of what you're getting yourself into would be advised.
If you wish to be directly connected to someone in a family, then it's just common sense to contact that person so you can create some sort of agreement.
(Contacting the creator of the family is strongly advised, it will give you a chance to discuss the background of the family in greater detail and get a better general understanding about it)

(Credit given to Coppersocket for writing most of the page, and hosting the previous family recruiting thread).

Character description
Her figure, nor her constitution are accordingly to her age. She is a slender beautiful woman with a toned muscle structure, weighs relatively light. She moves elegantly with grace and agility. Regular height, tanned skin, black hair dropping down onto her shoulders, dark brown eyes. Think of a Roma (Gypsy) like woman. A few minor wrinkles can be seen around the eyes, but again nothing suggesting her real age. She used to have grey hair, but (dark) magic has been used to turn it back to it's original colour.  When dressed as Lady Mira she wears finely tailored dresses and jewellery, clearly showing off her wealth. She would only wear pants as a Lady when absolutely necessary. When in public in Stormwind she tends to wrap a large scarf around her head and face 'to keep her hair from getting messed up in the wind'. She usually carries a set of matching decorated daggers. A pouch for her set of Tarot cards and a smaller pouch for coins and other small items. Rides her horse Besnik, which usually carries a pair of saddle bags attatched to the richly decorated saddle. When dressed as Claudia/Cindy she wears plain leather and/or cloth clothing and armor of good make, always wearing pants (no dresses) and always covering her head and face to hide her true identity. When in public she usually speaks in a lower voice as Claudia than her normal voice as Myriah. No jewellery, Tarot cards or too much coins on her. Rides her horse Andrzej.

Moved to the active family recruitment thread.

Apologies for posting after two years of inactivity, but I assume that the thread still has some relevance due to its status as a sticky.

The Manaspark Family

Family traits:

The most distinguishable feature of a Manaspark is the bright pink hair shared by near enough every family member. Other than this, grey-blue eyes and pale skin are common traits, but not necessarily required.

The family is largely made up of mages, tinkerers and merchants, although there would be exceptions to this rule, such as Edwald caring little about magic or engineering. Some may also choose to work in all three of these areas, or even dabble in darker magics. Despite this, there are no notable Manaspark warriors or nobles, certainly none who still choose to use the family title.

Manasparkian names often begin with the prefix "Ed-" (Edwin, Edwald) and may sound somewhat more like human names, particularly with the younger generations of the family. Like any gnome, if a Manaspark achieves something of great significance or importance, they may wish to choose a more fitting last name.

Family Alignment:
Given the fact that most gnomes are allied with the Alliance, most Manasparks support it - this, however, is not a necessary trait. The fact that most of the family remains in Dalaran also leads to many being allied with the Kirin Tor, although Jaina Proudmoore's treatment of Sin'dorei may have persuaded several Manasparks to leave.

The family has owned "The Manaspark Organisation" for several generations, some Dwarven historians speculate that the trade group was around long before the gnomish race became known to the dwarves. Until recently, the Organisation was an entirely peaceful group only intending to trade with others - this was until young Edwin established Manaspark's Army, a less pacifistic organisation derived from the original. Of course, the original group still exists in Dalaran, with most of the family's members helping to run it.

Played family members:

Edwin Manaspark - Fairly young mage, founder of Manaspark's Army. Considered an enemy of the Stormwind Council.
Edwald Manaspark III - Mercenary and part-time tradesman, cares little for the family traditions. Has grown to hate his brother Edwin after his founding of the Army.

Unplayed family members:
Edthallbert Manaspark IV - Manager of Simply Enchanting, father to Edwin and Edwald.

Given the situation in Legion with Dalaran, more Manasparks would likely appear around the city. As such, I invite anyone interested to create a Manaspark character for the expansion.

The Broncrast Legacy

Family traits:
A specific trait in the Broncrast family is their yellow eyes. Not all members were born with them being yellow but it never fails that at one point they shift into a yellow/golden shade, there is currently only one member whose eyes are not yellow yet.
Both in heart and mind they are a strong willed family, able to endure any difficulty that blocks their path. Some may call them stubborn but that is not untrue either.

Meet the family:

Reyleigh D. Broncrast: A man self made, born in captivity and not knowing freedom until he was already a large grown man. His mother died of illness while he was still a child and he was left to pick up her chores along with his own. A noble house with servants weren't uncommon at the time, and Rey whom didn't even have his name yet held only silent rage towards them.
The mansion was attacked by a vicious beast, leaving nothing but death and blood in its path, only a young boy escaped with his life, only to be captured by a worse fate. Until he was well into adulthood he was thrown into a pit, forced to fight tooth and nail against beasts and other prisoners. As fate would have it Rey once again found his freedom by a slightly violent event, but this time it would be more permanent. He set off into the world, looking to never return to what he was or had ever been. He headed for Stormwind to look for what fate had in store next for him.
Info: Reyleigh has gray hair, yellow eyes, muscular build, stands at 202cm tall, expert with most weapons and has next to no knowledge of magic and doesn't ever seem to be interested either. Strong sense of justice, stubborn, strong, loyal, has a temper and knows how to draw well. He's not known for being bright, rather hardheaded.
[Taken for RP]

Alyanah Victoria Avareau: Reyleigh's only sister and sibling. Her past is a brighter one than her brothers, they might as well be complete opposites. She was smuggled out of captivity without Reyleigh knowing, taken in by friends of her mother and later adopted by a high standing family, the Avareau family. She was a smart young girl, often locked in her room or deep in a book at the library. She quickly sought out the wonders of arcane magics. Knowledge fascinated every corner of her mind and one day decided to find her real family. After searching long enough she found her one and only brother Reyleigh working as a blacksmith in Stormwind.
Info: Her hair is black but she colors it to keep it red/blond, well versed arcanist, studies magic and all sorts of things depending on her whims and mood, her entire left arm is missing after a serious summoning attempt (non demon one), same yellow eyes as her brother, slim build, intelligent, warm towards others, has great manners and barely able to get angry with anyone due to her bright look on life.
[Available for RP]

Teresa Broncrast: The oldest of Reyleigh's offspring and the surrogate mother for all his offspring. Not knowing the mother of herself or her younger siblings she took it upon herself to raise them. They were, like their father, raised mostly in captivity.
Teresa and her siblings weren't as cruelly kept as their father, whom they had yet to meet, they were allowed a book every once in a while and got to train among themselves. Teresa being the only one taking care of them, keeping them up when things looked dark, took to the holy Light. Clinging to her faith strongly but later became something different, her feelings for her family was strong, but for everything else they faded. She lost her sense of emotion due to the way they lived. Her faith in the Light was still in her heart but slowly her heart was torn in half, one shrouded in Shadow and one of Light. She started to use them both in her training and fights, and because of her maternal tone when she spoke she earned the name "Dark Mother". Her focus was always sharp, and one day all five of them earned their freedom by saving their small amounts of winnings after each fight. They all had one voice when they said they wanted to find their father.
Info: Black raven hair, yellow eyes and her pupil looks like a black burning sun, she is slim but with slight figure. She is rather dispassionate about everything but knows how to lie very well except to her family as if they know how to tell.
[Available for RP]

Marcus & Victor Broncrast: Twin boys and the second oldest in the bunch. They were always together, even when fighting they had to fight together at the start, as if connected at their souls they did not want to separate at any cost.
Teresa did what she could with them as they grew up but the twins were always the lesser smart couple of brothers. Always fighting but embraced the fact they were alike, often playing pranks on the others by switching places. The key differences between them is that Victor is a good talker, has no issue talking to women or in front of a crowd, where as Marcus gets so shy he goes completely mute. Marcus however has a strength his brother Victor doesn't have and that's focus. When Marcus is given an objective he gets tunnel vision until it is complete and preforms with excellent skill, Victor is less of a fighter but can very much hold his own, but has never won against his twin Marcus. Meat-heads is a nickname often used to describe them as they are not bright, but very carefree about that.
Info: They are tall, muscular, can take a beating and still laugh, thickheaded but oddly charming. Take after their father Reyleigh quite a lot, both having the yellow eyes and black hair.
[Marcus is taken for RP]
[Victor is available for RP]

Evilia Sandra Broncrast: The youngest girl and by far the most temperamental one. A slow bloomer is what she would constantly tell people as she is rather short and with a flat chest, which she is very sensitive about. People who look below her chin would get a stare of death from this one. Evilia quickly grew tired of her knuckleheaded big brothers and decided that she would be more flexible than they could ever be, both physically and mentally. She trained herself to move swiftly around, jumping high and landing soundlessly. She was given a book by a boy from the house, he thought it would be a sweet gift to her but she thought little about it, just another book. The book however was about magic and it's basic uses such as fire and ice, and she quickly took a liking to the ideas that started floating through her head of its uses in combat.
With her already nimble body she started to train, frustration often made her lash out towards her brothers when she couldn't manifest arcane, it took some tries but she get there eventually. Training on how to fling a dagger, a shard, a disc of solid ice or a small concentrated ball of fire came in handy, she defined the term "Spellslinger".
Info: Short, flat chested, yellow eyes like the rest, black hair with one red and one blue braid, loudmouthed, very flexible and nimble.
[Available for RP]

Gabriel D. Broncrast: The very youngest boy. He is the spitting image of his father Reyleigh in physique. Growing up with the others he was a silent boy, didn't speak unless needed to but worked and trained possibly the hardest of them all. Showing intelligence but he never found any interest in magic like his sister Evilia or the Light like Teresa. Gabriel was stoic, and grew to be tall and muscular swiftly compared to the rest and even inherited Reyleigh regenerative ability, something they thought was unique to Gabriel before they met Reyleigh years later.
Like a knight Gabriel was reluctant to fight for entertainment, thought it to be barbaric and wrong, rather often his opponents would loose all will to fight because he would take every hit and get back up but never hit back. The first time he killed was because the opponent had a sword, it was kill or be killed and after that fight he sat in the room where himself and his siblings lived and stared at his bloodied hands. Blood, the very essence of life, intrigued him. The color, the smell, the taste, all of it lit up his mind but he had no understand as to why it did so.
When they were freed he wanted to meet his father, but shortly after they had, he sought to travel. He had questions about the world and about himself that he needed answered and it could not be answered by anyone else but himself.
Info: Tall, muscular, rugged, curious about a lot of things, trademark yellow eyes and black hair. Has a strange interest in blood, loves his family above all else, has a strong sense of -his own- justice.
[Reserved for now]

Any questions about any of them just ask me in a PM or in-game, there are plenty others from this story who could pop up but I thought these would do for now as they are the closest to my character which is Reyleigh.
