Name: Thomas Oakland
Height: 6'3" (ears included)
Date of Birth: October 29
Occupation: Autumn Kingdom Soldier/ Chief of Police
Biography: As a young lad, Thomas couldn't stop getting into trouble...scraping his knee, breaking an arm, and releasing a skunk into a busy market place are only the tip of the long list that covers his lifetime. One day, however, (around 16 or 17 years of age) he got especially stupid and went deeper into the forest than he should've and got lost in a labyrinth of underground caverns. Upon losing all hope he prayed for help and a blinding light was sent from who knows where and guided him out. At least, he hoped, because it didn't exactly portray any means of showing him out. But it did. As a consequence, his sight was taken from him, leaving his pupils the only distinguishable feature in his eye-sockets.
Shortly after that, some of the others who had fallen prey to his games began to pester him, so he began to study sword play and magic. The two rings (around his neck and hanging from his left sleeve) help him channel earth magic, into his weapon of choice (normally a sword or staff-like object which happens to be standing nearby... unfortunately long range weapons aren't really a possibility at the moment). He's a dominantly right handed man in this account.
Because he didn't want to stay in the forest proper he moved to the inner city to find work with the men and women who protected the land,as he wanted to something to remedy his old actions. Though he is blind, his other senses are top notch, especially his ears which come in handy. He is still looking for a way to get his sight back.
Personality: Somewhat stoic with a distinct sense of order, while also liking to make people laugh if it's possible. (think Fai D. Flowright from Tsubasa Chronicle, sound and action)
Extra Facts: His mother and father are still alive, as are his two twin siblings.
He really likes well-cooked fish and fresh raw veggies.
He liked to navigate around the Autumn Kingdom woods and caves and study the stars when he wasn't blind.
Blind, he likes to sit and listen to people or work out when he's not on duty.
(( Have you any idea how much I've been drawing theve!?))
((I don't!! Can you send me pics? I haven't seen any on dA!!! And would you like to continue the rp with them? Thomas misses him! Q.Q))
Neve runs up to him an hugs him from behind.
Thomas shouts. "Aaaah!!!"
Neve grins "Calm down it's just me!" he says teasingly.
Thomas looked back and smiles, wrapping his bushy tail around Neve. "Oh, 'just me'? You underestimate yourself..." he says turning to give him a hug
Thomas: *waves hand as his tail floats around behind him* Well enough, Tonbo. Just doing some rounds around Dresden. What about yourself? *ears quirk*
Thomas: ah. Yes, I know Kana well.
What dance are you two practicing? It's been a while since I've last seen a festival dance.
Tonbo: Kana and I have been practicing the traditional priestess dance. >_<
He's so cute :3 <3 I love your story line too. It's so awesome and a breath of fresh air really :3 Kinda inspirational too in a way, building himself up. When he was young he reminded me of Prince... except Prince is a thieving mischievous no-good chump ;u;
Thomas: *looks in his general direction and flicks his tail.*
Hello...? *sniffs for a moment* Is that an apple I smell?
(Also HOW did you make a plz thing for your person, that is so cool!!!)
: pff yeah what are you blind? *snorts* its a pretty hot apple..
(he means as in the slang he doesn't find apples sexy XD also - he isn't the most sensitive.. He also doesn't believe disabilities are bad since his helps him so much )
(why not?? apples are so sexy!!!!)
That's taller than average 'eight for some fellas.
'n' so what if yer blind. You've obviously got something goin' for ya.
*tosses the apple up and catches it with his teeth before taking
another bite*. Tormen'? I'm jus' livin'. Ain't I 'lowed to n'more?
You's type all the same. *stretches and yawns loudly*
(gotta love me some apples ;u)
Go along, kid, have fun and stay out of trouble, alright?
Prince: Stay out a' trouble? *he laughed amused* My 'ole life is trouble, an' per'aps i'm the main cause of it... I'm sure the local venders would a'least agree wit' you on tha' respect... they don't even like the word prince n'more. I feel sorry for the royal'y tha' come to the markets. Trouble. *throws the apple up in the air before smirking naughtily, he throws the apple towards Thomas, keeping an eye on the soldier.*
Thomas: As a sign of our new friendship and all that? *he lifts the sides of his lips in a small grin*
*He then 'looks' around and waves his hand up and down, lowering his head and leaning in as if to tell a secret*
And please don't worry about paying me, I get enough from my job as it is, so how's about I'll take you out for some fresh apples after?
