My approved character for my PbP game "A Frozen Requiem" GMed by Zelbinian.
Concept: Arrogant Elven Warrior-Prince
Character Name: Zev Subodai
Situation and Background: Zev and his brother Safed have been at each other's throats for centuries. Safed has never forgiven Zev for being the elder and thus the first in line for the Etharchy of Rimenacht, but Zev is just as determined to hold onto his birthright as Safed is keen to subvert it. Zev has fought in the frequent wars against the nearby orc clans, while Safed has used his time building influence and a following at court. Following a party at which he got Zev drunk and goaded him, Zev lost it and put one of Safed's closest allies in the infirmary for a week. The Winter King cut Zev out of the expedition to expulse the most recent orc incursion and put Safed in his place, dispatching Zev to Glacier's Edge, a border with the orcs that has seen no action in decades. Zev now prepares to lead a detachment to Glacier's Edge and seeks to minimize his brother's influence in his absence. The Winter King is notoriously difficult to read, but Zev's efforts may already be too late.

- I will turn my ragtag band into a disciplined team I'm proud to lead.
- I will bear any burden and pay any price to ensure that the Ice Throne will be mine.
- Never apologize.
- Always have my sword unsheathed when in dangerous areas.
- Always wear my finest armor and clothing. Appearance is everything.
I am editing this as play progresses and the character changes. Consider this a fluid post!
Also note that while he started play as sort of a bastard, he's already going differently than I expected (a little more bastardly, actually). Final destination: redemption or damnation? Should be a fun ride either way.
