A Smaller Odyssey RP
« on: August 11, 2019, 06:27:28 AM »

“Day by day, what you choose, what you think and what you do is who you become.”

*******

Yet another RP based around ancient Greece. This time, however, things will be a little different: there will be no gods, no demigods, no monsters, no powers: we're gettin' historically accurate, folks.

Okay, not really. I don't have the patience nor the hecks to give about total historical accuracy. What I'm saying is, there will be no supernatural whatsits in this RP. Our characters are normal, everyday citizens. Of course that doesn't mean their stories won't become epics.

And just some other things to note:
- The story will take place during the Classical Era, some time during the war between Sparta and Athens
- While gods and whatnot don't actually exist, our characters will believe they do. I'm not saying they have to all be super intensely religious, but come on: it's ancient Greece. Everyone believes in the gods, in monsters, legends, etc. etc.
- Positions! Jobs! There are lots of different things your character can do! Be a soldier, or a guard! A merchant, or a part of the pirate crew that raids their ships! A scholar, a healer, a priest or priestess, hell, even a slave if you want.
- The story will start off with all of our characters in Athens, though you don't have to be Athenian or from the city.

Standard rules apply, y'all know the drill.

Προς τα εμπρός!

Name: Patrathea
Age: 19
Appearance: Small and lithe with deep brown skin, bundles of messy curls, and bright, youthful eyes, Patrathea is the poster child of feminine innocence. She keeps her hair tied back with intricate braids held together with ribbons, and she is most often seen wearing pale pink (her favourite colour)
Personality: Contrary to her appearance, Patrathea is a fiery young woman who would rather die than to back down from a challenge (especially if it means someone questioning her honour). Of course, being a sheltered girl means she can also be quite naive.
Job/ Position: Currently helps her mother around the home, although she hopes to become a temple priestess someday
History/ Other: The younger sister of Markos, Patrathea has spent her life being sheltered by her mother and brother for reasons she does not know. Her father died when she was too young to remember him, and she can't help but feel like her 'bird-in-a-cage' existence has something to do with that.

Name: Markos
Age: 23
Appearance: Similar to his sister in terms of complexion and hair, though he is quite a bit taller and his eyes are much darker. He keeps his hair relatively long and his facial hair neat, and is most often sporting his armour, which is light yet durable.
Personality: Markos is a laid-back, yet often cocky goofball. His arrogance tends to get him into trouble often (which is where his fighting skills come in handy).
Job/ Position: Guard (more of a freelance position, as he'll work for whoever pays him the most)
History/ Other: After the death of his father when he was a child he became the man if his household, swearing to the gods that he would protect his mother and sister no matter the cost.
