Spoiler! :
Name: Nikolas (Niko) Elara

Type(adventurer, nymph, tree, etc.): Adventurer (human)

Gender: Male

Description: Tall and thin, but not lanky. Niko has olive skin, shoulder length black hair (usually worn in a messy ponytail), and hazel eyes. He has calloused hands and almost always has dirt under his short fingernails. He usually wears brown trousers, a plain, off white tunic, and black boots. His longsword is sheathed to his back, and he carries a beat up leather satchel containing a journal, a bit of food, and a small, nearly empty coin purse.

Age: early to mid twenties

Weapon: He favors his longsword, but has weak abilities in aerokinesis (manipulation of air) that he is working on strengthening.

Skills: Niko is quick on his feet and using his longsword.

Weaknesses: Since he is human, he is more susceptible to injury or illness. However, he is overall healthy and able to defend himself well. He's a bit of an outcast, despite his extraverted personality, and while he finds it easy to talk to others, he worries of what people think of him.

I'm gonna wait until we're in the forest, since Grier doesn't leave it unless he's out on business.

Hi! Sorry for taking so long with this. I had work yesterday afternoon, and when I got home from work I had dinner with my family and watched TV with them. I didn't get a chance to work on my character profile until this morning.

I'll go write up a post now since Romi's an adventurer! :)

Spoiler! :
Name: Romi

Type: Adventurer // Human

Gender: I'm not exactly sure, but I think she/her pronouns work for her!

Description: Romi has long, dark brown hair that she keeps up in a ponytail, as well as dark brown eyes. It's clear that her life hasn't been easy: scars litter her notably muscular arms, and her hands are rough from constant use. She's currently wearing a loose light brown shirt with short sleeves, noticeably tighter black pants, and a comfortable pair of boots. She also has a belt with multiple pockets and a quiver/bow on her back.

In her story, her family is from Japan. Her family origin doesn't really matter in this roleplay outside of her looking Japanese - I actually wasn't going to mention it, but then I realized I wasn't giving a full picture of her appearance.

Age: 31

Weapon: Romi's main weapon is her recurve bow, but she also has a small knife in a sheath at her side - as well as a few potions lurking inside of the endless pockets of her belt.

Skills: She's been using a bow since she was little, so that's definitely one of her big skills. She's also pretty empathetic and open to new ideas, so she's a great diplomat when the need arises. She also has a special kind of magic, but the magic is oddly specific: she can grow and manipulate coral reefs. Specifically, she can create a kind of coral reef from the Favia family - it's a brown, more compact kind of coral reef.

(It's also known as the most northern kind of coral here on Earth!)

Weaknesses: She can fight in close combat when she has to, but she's obviously a little more of a long distance person. Her coral reefs are also susceptible to dying from too-high temperatures, and usually need some kind of nearby water source to last for long periods of time.

I just thought of something. As a plot twist, the humans who venture into the forest find a temple, or a rune or something, that transforms them into the magical creatures.

If you don't like this idea, or it doesn't match the plot, just ignore it.

I'm not sure what @LordMomo has in mind for the plot, but I'd definitely be interested in that if LordMomo wants to add it! I have no idea what Romi would become, but it would definitely be entertaining. :)

I really have no idea what is making people disappear in the Forest, and I'm open to suggestions! Great posts everyone!

I'm not sure it really works for my character, so I'm not gonna do that.

I'm about to pop off for the night, but in case the me of tomorrow forgets - I really like the idea of the woods not actually being at fault, and some other external group spreading the rumor that the forest and its inhabitants have something to do with the disappearances. :)

Alternatively, they could discover that the people who "disappear" in the forest really were just running away from their homes, and the forest was a convenient place to cut through.

(I just really like the idea of the forest and its inhabitants not being the bad guys. :))
