6, What is the back-story and history of your character?
(Mind you the following is a summary other key character story such as his wife through arranged marriage are not mentioned here!)
The elder son of one of the many noble families in Suramar, Archeverre's game is all around eloquent social events and well placed politics, or so does he think, as he was mostly forced into this lifestyle by his upbringing and with no chances to stray from it. Although he grew up an empty husk who didn't mind playing along, this tendency to not be personally so interested in the meddlings of what Archeverre sees as shallow affairs made him bury his nose in books in the hope of being left alone. Always the extremely studious type, it turned out that looking further into practical knowledge was way more interesthing than the matters the different cutleries and political moves. And there he continued this passion.
As numerous mages around Suramar studied the Arcane to better their sheltered living in Suramar, Archeverre found himself, at the disappointment of his family wanting to take advantage out of his knowledge, to delve into other areas. Attracted by the way of the Light which appeared as more straightforward, bold and honest than how all of his entourage acted since his birth. He grew only more curious as he delved into the dangers of the Void and how its eeriness fitted a hunger inside his cynical, nearly depressive thoughts.
As he found others with sensibly the same interests, Archeverre continued his studies with new equipment and served, as long as his own interests would be fulfilled. As a Shal'dorei, he found himself deeply curious on the different religions mentioned in certain books and, although he didn't carried any deep beliefs, his thirst to better himself above others made him adjust his behaviour and morals to what he saw as deep, powerful knowledge.
Despite not dragging the interests of nobles and not bringing anything to his family's social image, the Grand Magistrix still encouraged the studies as she craved in power. Despite this, without any groundbreaking discovery compared to what she did in Arcane and the philosophy not exactly matching the Shal'dorei's more practical and down-to-earth manners, only some of her underlings would supervise any search in the Light and Void. However, this created the perfect, silent and undisturbed comfort Archeverre sought. And when the rebellion stroke, he mostly hid in safety and didn't have any trouble bending the knee to a new authority as long as he could fulfill his own needs.
As the new leaders recognized more and more individuals based not on their name but potential, the few priests among the Shal'dorei were recognized alongside their unique outlook and researches. Immediately, the First Arcanist sent out those Archeverre and his colleagues as a show of good faith to share their knowledge with their new Horde brothers and sisters and better their craft alongside them. The Nightborne didn't mind leaving Suramar. At first, he was almost relieved to be away from his frowning family as he still didn't produce a single heir.
And then, he stepped in some rotten drunk orc puke as he stepped into Ogrimmar.
7, Tell us about the personality of your character.
Archeverre's personality is grimmer, to say the least, than how he presents himself. Bitter by the upbringing and lifestyle for the hundreds of years he's lived, his patience runs thinner and thinner with time. Narcissistic, he struggles between his self-loitering and finding that his deep insights make him superior to others. Archeverre shows to have very selective interest towards particular people, mostly those who shows mental prowess. However, he finds himself to constantly butthead in search of knowledge, as his many questionings it may be taken as rudeness to more sensitive individuals. Despite this cold and calculated side, Archeverre is ultimately a lonely, somewhat depressed person who believes that there is no place for a viable life and so only ever focuses on what is sitting in front of him.
8, What does your character look like?
On top of his two hundred and forty six centimetres height, Archeverre possesses the Nightborne's signature teal skintone, though stand out slightly amongst his peers by his dark, black hair; although not so specially rare, it did raise eyebrows as being less aesthetically pleasing than his peers impeccable snow white. His almond shaped eyes shine of silver through his magic infused marks covering his body. Despite not being especially athletic, the growing rebellion had the Grand Magistrix order for many of scholars to undergo military training and Archeverre's more active livelihood does show on his more, let's put, intellectual silhouette.
Archeverre always stand up straight and poses himself elegantly, not by forcing himself to do so, but because he always stood like this. This makes him stand out like many Shal'dorei among their Horde peers, even the Sin'dorei who through the years got used to more relaxed company. On top of that, the composed way he tends to walk doesn't fit any muddy terrain.
9, What does your character think of their warchief, Sylvanas Windrunner?
(This opinion doesn't include the current pre-expansion quests, I'm waiting for them to be finished and BFA to be out before building a whole IC opinion on it!)
Archeverre was only greeted by the warchief as his kin joined the Horde. As he overprepared himself to meet his new allies, he never witnessed any of Sylvanas' doings and only heard or read of them. This make Archeverre sees Sylvannas as a practical leader who faced difficult choices, but won't back down by some feeling or sympathy, which he ultimately admires. On paper, Sylvanas' crude acts seem in Archeverre's mind as difficult, but ultimately practical, making him akin to support the Warchief. However, this is biased by his sheltered upbringing, as he never witnessed the true horrors of the war directly and his lack of experience in the matters show when thinking of the Horde. He doesn't have, however, any strong opinion on Sylvanas Windrunner, as Archeverre always look at the bigger picture; the Horde is not just the one who calls the shots, but all of its people. Like with any authority he's faced so far, he'd mostly shrug off the subject as he finds any opinion on the warchief too political.
10, The following questions are designed to get a better grasp of your character within their race and position within the Horde. Only answer the question(s) specified to your character’s race. If the question does not apply to your character perfectly, still try to answer to the best of your ability.
Nightborne: Where did your Shal'dorei stand in the civil war between the Dusk Lilly and Elisande's regime? How do they feel about Thalyssra as a leader now?
With the Dusk Lilly being more and more present in Suramar, Elisande immediately had any studies stopped and Archeverre was one of the many scholars who underwent intensive military training in case she needed more arms to go to war. Archeverre didn't see the worst of those fights, but still had his parts in it; it turns out that questioning lowborn civilians while using the terrifying appearance of void energies could be quite effective without nearly trying, as lots were unfamiliar with it. He was mostly accompanied by a party and would act as their healer. However, he never partook in a fight where his team would be outnumbered and while not in any active assignment, he didn't patrol and would heal wounded and poisoned soldiers.
When Thalyssra broke into Suramar, Archeverre, at first, started to follow orders and protected his fellows, however, as the rebellion started to pour more and more into the city, he grabbed his colleagues, where they quickly hid in safety; as he looked for himself first, there was no way he'd be wounded for a cause he had no loyalty outside social obligations in, much less die for it.
Archeverre doesn't see Thalyssra as particularly different from Elisantrix since as stated before, authority is authority, and he doesn't put too much opinion into it. However, compared to how Elisantrix saw his Light and Void studies as a way to feed her own hunger for personal power, which he saw as insulting, he feels personally grateful for Thalyssra to recognize his worth. Still, he doesn't feel too inclined to her. Being a cynic, Archeverre sees Thalyssra's praise as a way to put the priests on her good side for her own ambitions and stick mostly to that image. Despite this, this doesn't mean that there is more harmony in how they all work together and that he isn't happy about the new opportunities he's given to better himself.
11, Which pages of the site did you read?
Everything under FAQ and more. I read Who We Are, but admit skimming through it and paying more attention to The Legacy and the Sunborne Highblades since they concern my character. Understand that I will read the rest more if my application is approved!
12, What do the fans of Blight Boar love to drink at their concerts?
13, Can you initiate roleplay on your own? How often do you? How do you?
I really like to! In fact, I'm not a big person on doing an old plotting thing behind the scene (when not talking about deep plots but character interactions). I like doing run in and interact with people I don't know in Ogrimmar. Clever banters are my favourite kind of roleplay as I like the laugh and smiles it just brings to the community. To be honest, I don't exactly know how to quantify that. I have to be in a roleplaying mood and I will look for a group who seems to need something exciting (for instance if two people seem to roleplay something plotted and very serious to their character I will abstain) and walk up to them. I like to not hesitate to stretch things slightly to make things more entertaining such as Archeverre's complaints on an inn's hygiene or his like for fancy clothing. I act casual in those walk-ins so people can be comfortable around me and make their character shine as I don't feel the need to be in the spotlight, but am very into it when things get serious. I know when to joke or not.
14, What does the goblin's trike use for fuel?
15, How involved do you like to be in the guild community outside of the game? Do you enjoy using forums / Discord, etc?
I enjoy both forums and discord, but being in a community is not super active to me. It really depends on how I find people's attitude to be akin to mine or not, I lurk and identify the mood before going in politely and maybe at some point I will open up. Despite this, as long as no offensive comments is made, no uncalled for whining and mature attitude is there, I'm in. Really the number one thing I want here is ROLEPLAYING, I'm on board to befriend people, but ultimately it is my first motivation!
16, Why do you want to join Warforged Legacy?
I am very selective on which type of roleplay I like. My standards are not necessarily high, but it is hard to come across interesting roleplaying experience. Too often so I've come across people with cringy like characters (aka playing some anime archetype) or ultimately just wanting to ERP (not that I'm against, I do so, in private, but no I'm not going to ask for X and Y kink every time I log in). I want my roleplays to be wholesome and fulfilling among people who shares the same passion with in depth development and first impressions you guys seem great for that! The requirements on your pages speak a lot with me.
17, Do you know anyone in the guild, and how do you know them?
Nope, I'm kind of nervous!
18, How did you hear about us?
I really wanted to find people to roleplay with on a regular basis and went through the Guild Finder in game! The guild description referred me to this site.
19, On average, how often do you log into this character and play? Try to be specific.
It can go from twice a week to five days a week, depending on what content I'm doing (raiding or leveling). And after some gaming, I would hop in places with TRP3 and start some interactions.
20, What was the name of the last guild you were in, and why did you leave it?
The Horde Army. I have nothing against them, really. The key leaders do actually excellent roleplaying, but the members... didn't quite so make it. In character, met a lot of blood elves "waifus" type roleplayed by guys (not generalizing every male who plays a female character, but you see the idea), and then at some point the guild chat got filled with /r/niceguys type of talks out of character which frankly were way too offensive to my taste. And I'm not talking SJW with some light mention, but things like all women manipulate men who just wants love, that every women were whores and they couldn't find someone good for them, that they should become gays since every homosexuals were easy holes... and all of that non ironically when I pointed out how awkward things were. So yes, those things piled up made me leave. I didn't want to make a whole damn thing out of it as I wasn't too invested to begin with. We're just a bunch of people who wants to roleplay man.
And really, those kinds of comments are a pet peeve of mine in terms of groupchat. In any way, I don't like it much when people throws very harsh *generalized* opinions in there. It makes things awkward for everyone, especially the ones who don't agree but don't want to stir things up. I'll gladly talk about how druid mains may feel about the latest prepatch quests, but not my stance on abortion in a Warcraft guild...
But like I said! Didn't want to make a big deal out of a minority who shouted loud. Would definitely roleplay again with key members on there and I wish them the best!
21, Anything you would like to add? (Tell us about yourself, etc.)
Hello guys I'm Muhu, I'm from Canada. I'm not the biggest newbie in terms of Warcraft, but not the biggest veteran. With a lore as far and wide as Warcraft has, it is hard to keep track of everything. I could tell you for example about the Titans, but when someone mentions little details while remembering everyone's names I'm woah. I do my best to remember everything I read, so I hope you can bear with me! I am still reading the Warcraft Chronicles and if you guys ever talk lore, I will listen and be really interested on your insight. I will share mine, but every time I do I understand that I may not remember or have read this and that small detail here that contradicts (since.. there's so much Warcraft content) and will gladly hear you explain to me why I'm wrong to remember it!
I've roleplayed a LOT since I was a preteen. Tabletop, forums, you name it and I still do. However, as my interest grew more towards Warcraft, I decided to tackle it, so I am still a newbie to this particular roleplaying community. *My first language is not English* so I hope I'm still doing good!
