Aarek Lin
Bard/Single Dad
The real Aarek_Lin
United States

Just a college student looking for some rp!

All About Aarek Lin

Name: Aarek Lin
Nickname(s): None?
Gender: Male
Race: Half-elf
Class: Bard
Sexuality: Pan, though his "type" tends to lean towards men. He really just thinks literally everyone is attractive. But let's face it, he's too much of a stuttery mess to successfully start a relationship, anyways. Poor bb.

Theme: You Wouldn't Like Me by Sleeping At Last

Skin Tone: Very, very tan from days in the sun
Eye Color: Copper (reddish brown), can appear gold in direct light
Hair: Black, though the sun has brought out some brown highlights. It's kept long, usually pulled back into a ponytail.
Height: 6' 0"
Other Appearance Details: He stands slightly taller than average, with a lean build. His arms/hands are covered in tattoos of elven runes, each one holding a significant meaning to him.
Clothing: His wardrobe consists of plain clothing. He always wears a scarf despite the heat. The only significantly "flashy" items he owns are his bracelets, given to him by his mother. Of course, his eyesight is absolutely terrible, so he wears glasses (one lens is cracked, but it doesn't bother him enough to get it fixed).

Personality: Unlike the suave, charming behavior associated with most bards, Aarek never flaunts his talent. He simply plays for the silver, doing his best to avoid any unnecessary attention. Many assume him to be arrogant or shy or just unsociable, but he's actually just a really big dork. Underneath the confidence he has while playing the flute, he's extremely socially awkward, so he tends not to make friends easily. When he does, though, he gets very attached and is prone to cuddle/hug attacks. He has undying loyalty to his friends, and refuses to believe any of them would betray him. But, if he is betrayed, there is little chance of that person ever being forgiven.

Aside from his distance in social situations, Aarek is also prone to anxiety. Most only see his lovable, sensitive side, but rarely see his anxiety attacks. He's still unsure what triggers them, but he's found that its better for him to be alone for a while when they occur. The symptoms include nausea, strong sense of fear, uncontrollable panic, shortness of breath, and other similar effects. However, they happen rarely and typically only under extreme stress, so don't worry!

Truthfully, Aarek's story isn't all that interesting. He was raised in an orphanage in Adeluna for most of his life, and even stayed there to help take care of the other children until his twentieth birthday. One of his mentors urged him to go and find his own place in the world. That was how his career as a traveling musician began. He primarily plays the flute, either on the streets or in taverns where he can. He's been through the majority of Canelux, though hasn't left the continent quite yet. Of all the places he visits, he keeps a written log of what each place is like, so he tends to get caught up in logistics rather than experiences.

-Madame Pauline: Runs the orphanage he grew up in; currently his boss; she's like his mama
-Tristana Deformem: Close friend; fellow anxious bud; I headcanon that they comfort each other with warm hugs; they make me soft
-Alairia Balatro: Brief acquaintance; pretty girl; fixed his arm yay
-Arayna: Acquaintance; fairy friend; she's nice; likes chocolate
-Naota: Patron god; healed Kass; he is v pretty

*All spells are cast using his flute paired with the runes on his arms. Require a certain amount of mana to cast.
*For casting purposes, he has reinforced his flute to be as sturdy as a mage's staff. It took a lot of work not to sacrifice the sound quality!
Holy Light: High-pitched melody of a hymn. It creates a blinding light and burns nearby enemies with holy magic. Most effective against undead/evil people. Mana Required: Half
Archcure: Can be a short or long song, but it takes a longer melody to cure heavier status ailments. This can cure any diseases, poisons, etc. Strength of the affliction affects length of the tune. Mana Required: Little-Great; increases w/ strength of status ailment
Vada Carol: Most versatile spell at his disposal. He’s skilled in using it in multiple forms (in fact, this is the only spell he casts by singing more often than with his flute). It involves a soothing lullaby and creates auroras of light around him. Mana Required: Little
Song of Festivity: A lively tune used to make others in the vicinity dance. He doesn’t use this one very often, as he sees it as stripping people’s free will. However, if a crowd seems hostile or ungiving, he may need to calm them down. Mana Required: Little-Half
Archprotection: Fierce song played to grant himself and allies supernatural protection. It takes a few seconds for the invisible barriers to form, but they last for a while once they do. Mana Required: Great
Weaken: Short but slow-paced riff used to physically weaken a target. Effects may last up to a few minutes. Mana Required: Little
Consecrate Weapon: Short melody used to bless any weapons for a small period of time. This includes his own flute. Increases amount of holy damage dealt. Mana Required: Little
Greater Heal: A mellow tune that can heal all but fatal physical wounds. The tune must be completed for the spell to work, and cannot be interrupted or the effects will slowly reverse. Mana Required: Great
Sun Strike: High trill, one note releases a blast of light from his instrument. He must continue playing to keep the blast constant. The end of the flute must point in the direction of the target to be accurate. Mana Required: Little-Great; increases w/ size of the blast
Safe Passage: A quick riff of a melody teleports a target to a random nearby location. Depending on the style of the tune, it works on either himself or a friend. Mana Required: Half
Sunburst: Plays a shrill note on his flute, creating a flash of light around him. No damage is done other than disorientation. Mana Required: Little

>Class: Weather Mage

-Bird Form: A tiny blue songbird, barely the size of Aarek's hand. Her tail feathers are rather long and curl at the tips.
