Name: Neo Sigil
Age: 74
Gender: Male
Race: Half-Dark Elf, Half-Human

Appearance: Neo has the look of a soldier. He is fairly tall for an Elf, due to his human heritage. His skin is very light for a dark elf, but his skin still has an even natural tan. His hair is thin and white, and falls lightly onto his shoulders. His eyes are a very intense, almost electric green that is not found amongst dark elves. His shoulders are broad, and his muscles are lean and defined from years of practice with weaponry and physical training.

Neo doesn't wear much in the way of armor - just black clawed gauntlets that cover his arms entirely, and a small white breastplate that barely covers his upper chest. His body between the bottom of the breastplate and the top of his pants is unprotected - leaving his abs, back, and lower ribs exposed. His pants are made of heavy black leather, and his black combat boots are of dark elven design.

Weapons: Neo wields a longsword of remarkable craft. The pommel and guard are made from black steel, and perfectly balanced with the blade. The handle is wrapped in silver, and the blade - about three feet long - runs from the guard like a steel thorn. The steel of the blade shines almost to a glow when drawn from its scabbard. His sword is his most precious possession - as it was his father's, and his father's before him. It is very sharp. His guantlets also are fashioned into steel claws at the end, which Neo often employs as weapons. He uses them instead of his sword when the Hyuri spirit inside him takes over.

His sword "Thorn", though he does not know it - is magical. It was made by a dark-elven blademaster 1,000 years ago for his great great grandfather. It's magic keeps it sharp and clean no matter how much it is used. The pommel and guard are made from black steel, and perfectly balanced with the blade. The handle is wrapped in silver, and the blade - about three feet long - runs from the guard like a steel thorn. The steel of the blade shines almost to a glow when drawn from its scabbard. His sword is his most precious possession - as it was his father's, and his father's before him. It is very sharp. The silver pendant he wears around his neck, from his mother - is also magical, it is shaped after an angel, and helps protect its wearer from harm. It also marks him as a member of his mother's family.

Magic: Arcane (Natural). Throughout his life he has taught himself one spell. A minor incantation that allows him to fly for a short period of time. (about ten minutes)

Personality: Neo has never seemed to be one to make friends. He doesn't talk much, and when he does, it usually doesn't come out nice. Many think him arrogant, or mean - which to some degree is true - but these are not his intentions. His half-human heart desires to be accepted, and loved, but his dark-elven heart chastises himself for feeling such emotions. Being raised around dark elves, has given him tough skin - and he hides away his human emotions. But deep down, he is good, and wants to help people - even if he doesn't admit it. If he is afraid of anything (which he would definately say he is not) it is of never finding his own place in the world. Now his desires are set on becoming a great warrior like his father, and making a name for himself in the world, so that people will know him, and care to understand him. Though he would never admit it.

Background: Neo's father, Drak, was a powerful dark-elven swordsman. One of the greatest warriors of his race at the time. But unlike the dark-elves of his village, he had a kind heart in search of adventure. So he said goodbye to his people and left his village. Later in his life, after one or two interesting (but unimportant) trials, while sleeping against a tree, he heard a girl crying for help. He followed her voice, and found her surrounded by three men, who were obviously mercenaries. He rescued her from her assailants with his powerful swordsmanship and his blade Thorn. In the fight, he learned that she was not completely defenseless herself, when, while he was fighting the second of the thugs - a third attacked him from behind. She cast a spell on the third thug paralyzing him. Drak came to find out that her name was Isis Sigil, a young priestess of Marfa. She was the daughter of a high-ranking family, whom she had fled. She would not say why, only that they were trying to get her back. She was very beautiful, with emerald green eyes, and long blonde hair. He decided that he would protect her, and eventually they fell in love. They concieved a child, but were constantly being pursued by her family. They decided that they would go back to Drak's village and raise their child where her family could never reach them. On their way however, a necromantic sorcerer, sent by her family, attacked them. They escaped with their lives, but a spell had been cast on Drak, that caused his body to age and die rapidly. Before they reached his homeland, he was dead. She couldn't go back, so she took his sword and headed for his village. When she arrived she showed them his sword, and they reluctantly decided to aid her. She died giving birth to Neo, and he was raised for a short time by his uncle, Srowd. Always out of place, however, and never fully accepted by his peers - Neo concentrated on being a swordsman. Once he was old enough to strike out on his own he left his village, much as his father had. Now, he reaches Raiden in hopes of finding a place to belong.

Special Notes: Possessed by Hyuri.
