Nickname(s): Reverrek, Rev, "Big Badger Thing"
Full Name: Reverrek Greyback
Species: Honey Badger
Age: Adult (25+)
Description: A pretty averagely-sized male honey badger. He's fairly well built and though not as large as his distant mountain-ruling cousins, he's still a big beast. He wears a faded yellow tunic with short sleeves and a pair of brown pants. He also wears a leather protective vest due mostly to an injury from an earlier misadventure. His otherwise black fur is broken up by a gray band of fur on his back that runs from head to tail, a trait which likely earned his family its name.
- Sword Sheath
- Carrying Bag
- Varying amounts of food and supplies
- Very skilled with his sword, and isn't afraid to use it for more than intimidation.
- Just as adept at using his fists as he is his sword.
- His species' tough skin and natural resistance to venom
- He would go as far as to completely ignore personal safety to protect those he cares about.
- He is in no definition of the word a coward.
- As result of an injury from earlier in his travels, a blow to the stomach would be devastating in battle, however it is kept safe most of the time by the protective vest he wears.
- His ignorance for personal safety in dire situations.
- His hot temper.
- Because of his species, he's sometimes mistaken to be a vermin. This has had varying results (though mostly bad ones).
- Strawberry Fizz. :3
Reverrek was born in a small village far south of Mossflower, where he led a relatively quiet life with his mother. His mother was a kind and compassionate beast, and was always doing everything she could to help her fellow villagers. These qualities were passed on to her son, who also inherited his father's courage and fighting spirit. Reverrek enjoyed his life at the village, and sought to keep it that way. Sometime after he had grown out of dibbunhood, Reverrek's mother contracted a serious illness. Despite doing everything he could, he could not prevent it from taking her life. Overcome with grief, Reverrek left the village, not seeing anything to stay for.
Since leaving the village, Reverrek has had a much more positive outlook on life than when he first left; seeing so many new places and meeting many a good beast have helped him to move on and leave the past behind him. However, that's not to say that it hasn't been without hardships. Reverrek has had more than a few encounters with beasts of the bad sort in the past; one such occasion left him without any supplies and a serious stomach wound. This and other events eventually led Reverrek to taking up sword-fighting, a skill that has proven itself useful on many occasions.
Reverrek is fun-loving and adventurous, and always willing to help those in need. He generally gets along well with those he meets, and tries to be as outgoing as he can. However, his hot temper can sometimes cloud his better judgement, which has led to a few regrettable decisions in the past. On the other hand, Reverrek's stubbornness means that he's the kind of beast who doesn't give up easily. Though he initially left his village out of grief, he eventually came to realize that travelling was a profession he was well suited for, and he hasn't stopped since.
Reverrek does his best to remain upbeat and talkative around others, and it isn't difficult to him draw into a conversation. He displays a good nature and a well-meaning behavior, but his temper can sometimes put him at odds with others. He likes to think situations through before acting on them, and isn't one to jump to conclusions.
Other Notes: No, this guy isn't some overpowered superbeast just because he's a honey badger. Playing an overpowered character just isn't any fun.
