Oh, go on then… :)
[spoil]CHARACTER BIOGRAPHY TEMPLATE:
Everyone calls him Sandy.
Slender and light, but not thin.
Tussled medium length hair but clean shaven. Perhaps a rather large nose, but certainly not unattractive thanks to a good bone structure and high cheekbones. A warm and broad smile that creases his eyes when he laughs.
"Good friends and good ale make for good people." He follows the Six Gods, particularly Lyssa and Melandru, but takes a keen interest in the philosophies of others.

-- Active life:
Sandy is a scholar and researcher. He'd spent a lot of his time as a student at the academies and libraries in Divinity's Reach, but recently became involved in the city's defence effort. He doesn't yet consider himself a fighter: though his knowledge of the workings of magic is extensive, he has rarely ever had to apply it in battle. He is only doing what he can to help.
A gnarled staff
Green and tan scholar's robes. He always wears an intricate weaved leather wristband his father once brought back from the Shiverpeaks.
Sandy fought his first skirmish alongside three others: the guardian Alexa Weaver, the mesmer Eldwyn Blake and the necromancer Lavinia Frost. The group remain close friends.
Having a go, having a laugh, and having a drink. If you're buying the next round, a pint of ale please!
Arguments, guns and thieves (he views them as dishonourable and cruel).
Sandy always loved accompanying friends on trips and adventures, though never saw the attraction of going it alone.
Intelligence, creativity and a burning desire to help others.
Inexperienced and manipulable: he feels guilt and pity too easily.
Positive Personality Traits:
Can be warm, optimistic and curious.
Negative Personality Traits:
Can be naïve, reckless and self-denying.
He has a slight claustrophobia, discovered recently when he accompanied a companion into a dark and narrow cave. Though he didn’t panic, he became quite twitchy; his companion testified afterwards that being with a twitchy elementalist in an enclosed space hadn’t been an enjoyable experience.
Disposition towards other races:
Generally very tolerant, though he finds the arrogance of the asura's assumed superiority more than a little irritating.
His/her childhood was...:
Very happy. Both Sandy’s parents are still alive, though his father, who was a merchant, is now rather infirm. His mother is a historian, who introduced him to the heroes and legends of old. He grew up immersed in books and legends.
This affected him/her how?:
A small part of him still aspires to be like the great heroes from Ascalon who fulfilled the Flameseeker prophecies. He was told as a child that he could be a descendant of one of those heroes, but he now dismisses this idea as a childish fantasy. [/spoil]
Gosh. I've never really RP'ed before, but I enjoyed that!
Also, there is no way I am going to be able to make it to release without changing a lot of that information :)
