Trivia

  • Nimbus is very cool and collected for the most part, but when it rains, it pours. His temper strikes like a bolt from the blue.

  • He tends to be statically charged and will shock people and objects on contact frequently.

  • Nimbus is nearly deaf, but has recently acquired a technology that allows him to hear what's going on around him a bit more clearly. The device does not see round-the-clock use; instead, it's typically reserved for when the safety of others is a concern out in the field.

  • Nimbus' favorite beverage is black coffee, and he's capable of becoming quite grouchy without a regular caffeine fix.

  • Rarely found without a pair of gloves on.


Hooks

Cloud-to-Ground Lightning

The aetheric signature surrounding Nimbus is more potent than one may expect, and it's very distinctly aspected towards lightning. It roils constantly, like an arc of lightning is ready to claw its way out of him at any moment.

The odd aether would be noticeable by most magically attuned individuals from a fair distance, but aetheric sensitivity isn't required to physically experience the charged aura surrounding him. Anyone in his immediate vicinity may be subject to static electricity, the hairs on their body standing on end, the air tasting metallic, etc.


Half-n'-Half

He has the height and pointed ears of an elezen, but the facial structure and build of a hyur.


Struck Deaf

He's not ignoring you, he's hard of hearing!


Out of Character

About

  • I'm Joel- 25 years old, freelance artist, and professional himbo appreciator.

  • Despite my character's tendency to be a little chilly towards strangers, I am friendly and talkative OOCly!

  • To my knowledge all my characters are lore adherent, but I am not lore strict! So long as a story has a reasonable explanation, then I am open to it.

  • LGBTQ+ friendly, and most if not all my characters fall under the umbrella.

  • I do my absolute best to match posts, but my post length naturally errs on the shorter side since I tend to become shy and lock up in group RP settings. My post length gets longer the more time I have to relax and think.

  • I struggle with my memory, so I am prone to making honest mistakes, lore or otherwise. If you catch one feel free to bump me and let me know!

  • My schedule ranges between restrictive and open at any given day, so arranging a time for RP works best for me!

  • I prefer to be acquainted and communicative with my long term RP partners.

  • If you want to set something up or discuss story hooks, feel free to ask for my Discord or message me ingame!


Rules of Engagement

  • IC =/= OOC! Any of my characters' potentially harmful opinions, beliefs, and actions do not reflect my own.

  • In spite of the above rule, I do acknowledge that sometimes certain subject matters do affect people outside of the game, so please do not hesitate to communicate your comforts!

  • Most RP themes accepted! I excel most in lighthearted, humorous settings, but also appreciate plot and dark themes as well.

  • Will not RP: Random ERP solicitations, excessively dark, taboo, or inappropriate themes, and my own character's death.
