Knopey is unknown and forgotten
Knopey di Asradan

 

Knopey di Asradan


Race:
Human


Age:

22


Location:

Abestat


Physical Description:

Knopey 6.1 feet tall, has black, wild-growing hair and bronzed skin. His hair is always unkempt and grows into every possible direction. There is a scar on his right cheek and one on his chest.


Personality:

  • Knopey is calm and ineloquent. He does not talk without reason. He is very thoughtful. Injustice is what enrages him, but unless there isn't any good reason, he stays calm. Towards strangers he is quite distanced but he tends to ask questions about himself (if he senses that he could have had contact with the respective person in his earlier life) and the world. He appears as a strange fellow on first sight.
    Secrets :
  • Since the loss of his memory, his whole being has changed. Before, he was selfish and ruthless and yet he always kept sober enough to make cold calculation. He used brute force whenever he considered it appropriate. Today, he is a calm one, not willing to become brutal unless there is no other way. He does not talk when he doesn't need to, which is why he is often considered an awkward person. While Knopey was a murderer in the past, killing is repugnant to him today.
  • Despite his strong swordarm, he prefers to convince his opponent rather than fighting him.
    He enjoys nature where he would have spat on trees and oceans in the past. He loves peace and the comforting sound of the wind.

Background:
  • Before his memory loss:
    Secrets :
    Knopey di Asradan was born into a rather noble family, yet was banned when his father, a fair merchant, found out about his trade with smugglers. Knopey was forced to join a small group of thieves who raised the standard of their crimes and came to grow to a serious threat of the city within two years. One dayhe was on a ship on the way to an appointment with a group of smugglers. These smugglers, however, turned out to be city guards and attacked the ship. Knopey nearly died in this fierce battle.

  • Today: He awoke at the seashore, unable to remember anything. Because he does not know anything about his past, he does not know how much he has changed. Except for the data taken from his visa, Knopey is ignorant of who he was and what happened before he opened his eyelashes on the shore.
    For a long time he has travelled through the lands, trying to find out who he was. Recently he lay down to sleep but he didn't dream. He found himself in an area of nothing but black. Suddenly, a female warm voice appeared.
    'Knopey.'
    'Who is it?'
    'Who am I is of no concern. But if you want me to have a name, call me Amura.'
    'So, Amura it is, huh? Am I dreaming?'
    'Yes, you are. Or rather no, you are not. It depends on how you consider it. You are sleeping, if it is that what you want to hear. But I am more than a mere dream.'
    'So? What are you then?'
    'It is for you to decide. For now, let me simply be Amura.'
    'Well then, what is it that you want to tell me?'
    Amura told Knopey his destination and so Knopey received his personal quest, he would go to this place and find his own identy!
    This is when Knopey opened his eyes.

Knopey is human, to the core.



Part 3 - Past Influences
Secrets :

29. What do you consider the most important event of your life so far?
The awakening at the shore. It’s a new start into a new life.

30. Who has had the most influence on you?

If anybody, it’s Amura.

None.

32. What is your greatest regret?

None.

33. What is the most evil thing you have ever done?

Nothing that he can remember.

34. Do you have a criminal record of any kind?

It is very much likely, according to the scar on his face.

35. When was the time you were the most frightened?

The moment he regained consciousness. He was unable to remember a thing. When he tried to remember, all he saw was black. The moment he was most frightened is the first moment he can recall.

36. What is the most embarrassing thing ever to happen to you?

Every time Knopey talks to people and has to ask for the even most obvious things like races, currency or magic – or whatever else.

37. If you could change one thing from your past, what would it be, and why?
Knopey would not do whatever he did that led to amnesia. Even though he is afraid he might not really like what he would be then.


38. What is your best memory?
None.


39. What is your worst memory?
None.



Part 4 - Beliefs and Opinions
Secrets :

40. Are you basically optimistic or pessimistic?
Neither one. Knopey is realist. He first considers both sides of the medal and then decides whether it’s better to be optimistic or pessimistic.

41. What is your greatest fear?

To regain memory and hate his past self.

42. What are your religious views?

None. Knopey knows too little of the world to decide his religious views. He does think, however, that there has to be “something. The world is too big and beautiful to be a product of nothing.”

43. What are your political views?

“Let them do what’s best for their realms. I’ll continue my search.”

44. What are your views on sex?

Whatever will happens will happen. It never happened to him, as far as he remembers.

45. Are you able to kill? Under what circumstances do you find killing to be acceptable or unacceptable?

Knopey often killed in his former life. [Knopey doesn’t know that!]
Now, he would only be able to kill if there is another life to protect.

46. In your opinion, what is the most evil thing any human being could do?
Kill another person for less than the rescue of another one’s life.



47. Do you believe in the existence of soul mates and/or true love?

“Maybe. If they exist, they may show up.”



48. What do you believe makes a successful life?

Anything you’re satisfied with.



49. How honest are you about your thoughts and feelings (i.e. do you hide your true self from others, and in what way)?

Knopey tends to hide his feelings. But when he does, he often falls into pondering. In those moments, his true feelings sometimes become visible.



50. Do you have any biases or prejudices?

None. Only that monsters are fat and ugly.



51. Is there anything you absolutely refuse to do under any circumstances? Why do you refuse to do it?

Making people do things they are not ready to do for own pleasure or profit. People should be able to choose what they are going to do or what they are not going to do. Forcing people to do something is simply brute.



52. Who or what, if anything, would you die for (or otherwise go to extremes for)?

This is one of the questions, Knopey is seeking an answer for.



Part 5 - Relationships with others
Secrets :

53. In general, how do you treat others (politely, rudely, by keeping them at a distance, etc.)? Does your treatment of them change depending on how well you know them, and if so, how?
Knopey tends to ignore people. If he doesn’t, he is ineloquent. And even if he isn’t, he keeps his sentences short and precise.
If he comes to talk longer to a person, his sentences also become longer. The more he gets to know somebody (or lets somebody get to know him), the more he opens himself towards this person.


54. Who is the most important person in your life, and why?

Himself because he is the only person he knows.



55. Who is the person you respect the most, and why?

Probably Thane Shadowmuffin for being so … different and still gaining so much respect and managing life in a social disaster like this world.

56. Who are your friends? Do you have a best friend? Describe these people.

The most close to a friend is the voice in his head – Amura.



57. Do you have a spouse or significant other? If so, describe this person.

No.


58. Have you ever been in love? If so, describe what happened.
If so, Knopey can’t remember.


59. What do you look for in a potential lover?
He never came to think about that.



60. How close are you to your family?
Not close at all. He doesn’t even know who they are.



61. Have you started your own family? If so, describe them. If not, do you want to? Why or why not?

Not so far. Maybe in future. Maybe…


62. Who would you turn to if you were in desperate need of help?
Governor Moonstar who helped Knopey in Abestat when he arrived.



63. Do you trust anyone to protect you? Who, and why?

Even though Knopey might seek help from others, he wouldn’t rely on anybody to a 100% to protect him.



64. If you died or went missing, who would miss you?

It seems nobody.



65. Who is the person you despise the most, and why?
None so far.



66. Do you tend to argue with people, or avoid conflict?

Rather avoid conflict.


67. Do you tend to take on leadership roles in social situations?

Only if it is required.

76. Do you smoke, drink, or use drugs? If so, why? Do you want to quit?

Sometimes a nice glass of wine or a good cup of ale. Not too much. Not too often.

77. How do you spend a typical Saturday night?

Looking for ways back to his memory.

With all his heart? Not much. He has to be in really, really respectable society.

Injustice against weaker ones.

Mostly spontaneous.

Part 7 - Self images and etc.
Secrets :

84. Describe the routine of a normal day for you. How do you feel when this routine is disrupted?
Waking up, doing Tradewinds business, looking for cues of his former life, getting to sleep. Somewhere between all that he eats. Usually he feels empty and tired after a day because he can’t find useful hints.

85. What is your greatest strength as a person?

Hard to say.

86. What is your greatest weakness?

Just the same.

87. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Somewhere in between.

90. Name three things you consider yourself to be very good at, and three things you consider yourself to be very bad at.

Good at: Maths, oratory, fighting
Bad at: General knowledge, socializing, comforting

91. Do you like yourself?

Quite. But he is afraid he wouldn’t really do that if he knew his earlier life.

92. What are your reasons for being an adventurer (or doing the strange and heroic things that RPG characters do)? Are your real reasons for doing this different than the ones you tell people in public? (If so, detail both sets of reasons...)

He wants to discover who he was before he woke up at the sea. He wants to at least see his earlier life and maybe have it back. He doesn’t make it a mystery. If he tells people about the reason of his journey, he doesn’t lie.

93. What goal do you most want to accomplish in your lifetime?

Live without ignorance of himself.

94. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

If he doesn’t run out of luck, in a house he used to call a home. If he does – on the ground of the sea.

95. If you could choose, how would you want to die?

By protecting something or someone precious.

96. If you knew you were going to die in 24 hours, name three things you would do in the time you had left.

Quitting his services at Tradewinds, paying outstanding bills, giving his goods to somebody who needs them.

97. What is the one thing for which you would most like to be remembered after your death?

People shouldn’t have to think of him. But any time they do, they shall remember him as somebody who fought the powerlessness of having a future without past.

98. What three words best describe your personality?

Silent, thoughtful, stern.

99. What three words would others probably use to describe you?

Grim, churlish, odd.

100. If you could, what advice would you, the player, give to your character? (You might even want to speak as if he or she were sitting right here in front of you, and use proper tone so he or she might heed your advice...)

Past is part of our life. Without it, we don’t feel complete. It seems precious to us. Yet, the most precious lies before us. Keep on to seek your past in order to complete yourself again but please – please! – never become again what you once were. Don’t destroy yourself by focusing on the lost but look for something or rather someone you can love!
