Character Name: Grigorus Aruumba

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs

"So no shit, there he was. Laying in a pool of his own piss, shit, and blood. Four bullets, two the stomach, and the others glancing blows, tearing out some flesh. Looking up, in the setting skyline, He sees Five, maybe six Flights, dodging our useless emplacements. Might as well be slinging rocks at them. On the move to his fortification was a squad, Maybe a dozen or so Republic soldiers. He can't blame them, even he thought about signing up for the 'Good guys.' But hey, that ain't really his thing.


War is Messa they say. Well, he can believe that. Looking to his left and right, he sees his friends, Liberators and Countrymen, Dead or dying. Large caliber rounds will do that to a Tajaran. He is not even sure if this is his blood he is sitting in anymore. The Republic approaches, one of them seems nice. Instead of shooting immediately, he tells us to drop whatever weapons we got and not to move. One of my squad mates raises her handgun, and immediately loses her head. Well, so much for nice. He tells them they owe him a strong drink for that, and immediately He is slogged across the face, and knocked out cold.


That gave him plenty time to think."


Grigorus is a Tajaran of the Zhan-Khazan breed. He lived in a nice little farming village in the middle of no where. As a child, he worked in the fields with his family, raising livestock and tending crops. When he was of age to get a real job like a real Tajaran, he joined the deputy department of his village, to help keep the locals in check, the wildlife away, and general peace. Years went by uneventful, as they tend to do.


That is until the Liberation began operation. At first it seemed to be some stories of a far off tale. Then the tale began to grow into rumors, and rumors became accusations. The Republic arrived to his quaint little village, and claimed it was a Liberation hot spot, a terrorist cell. One by one they went and raided every place of business, every resident, every personal property. Torn asunder and broken, this town was in shambles now. Of course they found nothing, but they didn't want to be made fools.


The dark cloaks arrive. They call them Secret Police, but at that moment they were Devils, Messa's own messengers. They claimed one of the local families was apart of the Liberation, found evidence they refused to show. They brought the Tajarans out, It was a father and wife, four children. Dragged them onto one of their vehicles and locked them away. Never to be seen again.


Afterwords, a Mafia came to settle in town, bringing a "relief effort" To help the traumatized locals, And it didn't take long for every individual in the village to become indebted to a large and dangerous group.


Grigorus, Soon after having his home village just claimed by the Mafia, and forced under their protection, was now out of a job and out of respect for the Republic. Found himself at local bars all the time. Bored, angry, spiteful. It all led to talking, and talking led to contacts, and contacts led to him speaking personally with a few Liberator recruiters. Swayed by the drink, bitterness, and hopelessness, he thought that maybe the values of the Liberation was the right ones.


It took a few months to convince him otherwise.


After the events in the opening letter, he recovered in a PoW camp hospital. It took months but he was back on his paws, starving and depressed in the camp. The time spent there was mostly rehabilitation back into the Republics way of thinking. Nothing came of him being there besides losing some muscle mass and body weight, but after awhile he was freed, newly indoctrinated into the Republics arms.


Now free of prison and the war, he weighed his options. Get a job in a city, Go back to the home town and work for the mafia, or get out of this shit hole and try to do something better with his life.


"That local boy told Him about that funny looking building over there, with the Big logo above it saying 'Nanotrassen.' He has heard they have pretty good job openings off-planet, and safe too. He might actually be able to have a job and not get shot at for once, hah. The humans seem nice enough anyways, He has always liked them. This conflict has gone on for to long, and he isn't able to deal with it anymore."


What do you like about this character?

He's a veteran, someone who has seen war and is both Jaded and frightened of it. He is unsure of his own values and beliefs, seeing both sides of the world at this point, and is unable to fully make up his mind about what he can trust, or believe in. He does believe in freedom of his people, but after being in war on the Liberators side, he isn't sure the methods are a means to the end. He is pretty unskilled, labor wise, but has a drive to move on with his life


How would you rate your role-playing ability?

Absolutely garbage, but I have fun and people seem to be entertained by me.



Notes:

Its Three AM and I must be bored.

Taintedglory's characters suck, he always ganks me plz ban -1 are fun to have around, his vaurca is one of the less annoying ones, who actually work instead of shouting ZODDDA or biting mouse in maintenance, his QM ant is pretty good too, stocking up the warehouse and all, i think he will make a good cat.


but i have two things i want to point out in the app, the cat's first name sounds too human, and he seems to be talking in first person, catbeasts only talk in first person to people they're really close to, else they would talk in third person.

Hi! Loremaster here. I really dig your character and his backstory, since he's involved.

It's a little heavy on the grimdark side, which some people might not like due to the heavy load of snowflakes that come from grimdark backstories, but I trust you have that all under control. This application will be accepted unless anyone wants to throw in additional feedback.


Take care!

I kind of took influence from Firefly and Red Dead Redemption, didnt mean to make it grimdark, meant to make it old west civil war feeling.
