You definitely didn't want Mark dead.
That's not what I'm saying.
Willing to let characters die is different from actively killing them off. Jcton purposefully set up and arranged the death of some of his characters through other characters of his. No other player enacted that.
I'm not talking about if you want your own character dead. I'm talking about if someone else's character wants your character dead, and manages to set up a circumstance (either through combat or other circumstances) where your character should reasonably die or be horribly injured. Choosing to hold onto the character - choosing to purposefully break the game in the defense of one character - is something I've done in the past around players who were incredibly unforgiving about it, and it left its mark on that particular RP and on the players in it.
That's the difference between playing realistically and playing selfishly. Now you haven't done anything near to the level I've found myself stooping to in the past, and neither has anyone else in this RP or, from what I can tell, any on TTV. But I'd rather nobody make the same mistakes I made long ago.
With that being said, I do have one more character I've been thinking about for quite some time. This character is recycled from the RP I made mention of above, although not the character responsible for my errors at the time.
Equipment/Abilities: Frog has three "brushes", made of separated plant leaves coupled together by two pieces of wood with stones driven through and vine wrapped around. He also has a small collection of paints made from crushed insects, dead animals, and so on. Frog has a particular taste in art which he attempts to express through painting, and while he cannot conceive the final result, they are often brilliant and vibrant, although not necessarily masterful. Frog also possesses the ability to "taste colour" - estimate the colour of a substance by certain chemicals and elements in the substance, which he is, for the most part, correct on. He can also camoflauge himself by changing the colour of his skin to reflect whatever he's closest to - and while this ability isn't perfect, it's a mystery how he performs it, as he is completely unaware of it.
Appearance: Frog is hunched, with a malformed spine, but even so stands taller than any Okotan. Frog has a hooked jaw closing up his rather blunt face, with two black, beady eyes, with nothing behind them, resting in his gigantic head. He possesses no nose, although he evidently used to have one, as the holes in the front of his face still inhale and exhale. His teeth are irregular and snap together like a jigsaw puzzle, and when speaking produce an almost rhythmic clicking sound. His throat is wrinkled and heavy, and vibrates when he speaks or calls. His legs are somewhat short and his arms somewhat long, forcing him to lumber around like an ape if actually walking. His hands and feet are bulbous and can cling to nearly any material, although they will only cling if Frog is consciously doing it. Ice is something he cannot cling to. He has a malformed and stretchy tongue which can extend in a lightning-fast manner up to 8 yards. Frog's body has a green colour to his skin but also has streaks of yellow across it.
Bio/Personality: Frog is terrified of nearly everything around him. If a creature attempts to approach Frog, and is significantly smaller than him, Frog may attempt to kill it. Frog lives in the caves between Le and Ga-Koto, and while he does not live far from the Temple of Time (using Jcton's map as Canon) he has never been to it. Frog is capable of speech, and can speak and comprehend Okotan perfectly, albeit with a dreadful lisp due to his mouth. Frog's speech is deep and gravely, grinding together the components of his throat to replicate speech patterns. This is because Frog's throat is designed for booming calls which can be heard across Okoto, as they carry for an incredible distance. Frog is plagued by chronic pain due to his malformed body, and often beats his head or hands against rocks to try and distract himself from it. Frog has an incredibly sensitive taste, and cannot stomach anything of too powerful a nature, preferring to eat insects and ground-up minerals mixed into water. Frog is also blind.
Frog has no perception as to his actual past, as his memory is foggy and fuzzy. At night he is constantly plagued by violent, incoherent dreams seen from the perspectives of a hundred different people, never from his own. Every single one of them ends with his abrupt death, causing Frog to awake with a start every morning. Due to this he will often not sleep, remaining awake at nights for weeks on end, eventually collapsing out of pure exhaustion.
One time Frog came across the deceased body of an Okotan. Touched in a unique way, Frog buried the body in the depths of a river not far from his home, and kept the mask, transfixed by its delicate shaping.
@jayzor17 I do have some backstory details to PM you about it, but otherwise that's it.
