Application for Gideon Nielsen

Post by Gideon » June 18th, 2022, 10:21 am

Do you have any prior experience with Requiem? If so, please detail when (and what characters, if desired) you previously played: Some. I played in the last 3 acts.

How did you hear about Requiem? I play here already.

What will your character’s name be? Gideon Nielsen

Please briefly describe the physical attributes of your character, including age, looks, height, weight and any notable features: A slender, tall figure stands before you with uncharacteristic dark hair for someone hailing from Arkhess. Although he strikes you as muscular and agile, his body and scars upon his skin tell a story of someone who has seen strife and years of battle. Now in his late thirties, the once obvious prelacy radiance has all but disappeared within the layers of sturdy and utilitarian black leather clothing and his often harsh tone.

Briefly state your character’s intentions or motivations for entering the First Province: Born and raised in the harsh, northern lands of Arkhess, Gideon has seen raised as a second child in a once noble Neilsen house. Throughout the centuries, the Neilsen family has provided many of the most devoted and skilled Inquisitors in the land, tasked with maintaining order in the northern wilds of Eastern Baronies. The family has long supported itself with fishing business, a proud and honest business that fueled their other endeavors. But waves of refuges from Tor and surrounding lands, carrying with them the stain of Torment, have plagued the once beautiful and plentiful shore of Arkhess, turning them into hospitable and barren wasteland. And so, the fall of Neilson family followed soon after, their lives and business consumed by the Torment and the Afflicted. With nothing left to lose, Gideon made his way to the First Province, determined to fight this plague at its core.

Please provide a few short paragraphs with pertinent details or notable qualities of your character’s history. This does not have to be exhaustive nor revealing of any information you wish to keep secret: Gideon grew up with stories of brave and valorous Inquisitors, many of while bore his family name, bring peace, prosperity and Decusian values in the far reaches of Arkhess. Decided to follow in their footsteps from an early age, he enrolled in the first training camp at the mare age of 14, which began a journey that molded this young and somewhat naïve boy into a man. When the first ship of Decusian refugees landed on their shores, the Neilsen family, like the rest of the Arkhess folks, decided to help them. Only then they realised those wretched refugees, those foreigners, will ultimately be their doom. The hearted of foreigners, the Torment, mixed with the distrust and resentment of all heretical thinking not in line with pure Decusian doctrine has forged an angry, aging man, on a mission: the eradication of Torment and all the heretics that fuel it with their sorceries.

Scenario: He approaches the Quarantine Officer, two blades stashed on his waist under the flapping black cloak. He turns his gazes at the officer, with a serious expression on his face. “I came to this wretched place for one reason and one reason only: to hunt the monsters that made Arkhess burn.”
