The Lord Ruler's perfect capital city, Luthadel, is doing the impossible: rebelling. Skaa half-breeds are being taught the power of Allomancy, something that the Lord Ruler's obligators said only existed in the nobility. The enslaved skaa, with their murderous benefactor, now fight back against a living god's oppression.

So, the Inquisition was formed. The nobles begin to fear assassination from all sides. The times of nobility Mistborn killing each other are over. The Steel Inquisitors look for aristocrat traitors and insurgent skaa, and the skaa try with all their strength to merely survive. The Lord Ruler's perfect Final Empire is slowly devolving into chaos.

Name: None specified. Just make it a believable skaa name.
Age: 23-27
Gender:Male
Powers: Smoker
Role: Smoker for the skaa rebellion, soon-to-be cobbler's apprentice

Other Pertinent Information: This character must have already Snapped and been recruited into the rebellion. This character is probably a little more experienced than his younger counterparts, so he can act as a mentor/"big brother" figure to them as needed. Because he's a little older than the typical apprentices, he should either already have some amount of experience doing a cobbler's work, or be a fast learner, so he can take on more responsibility in the shop, thus drawing less attention to himself.

After being accepted, the character will be assigned to work at a safehouse run by the skaa cobbler Darnam, acting as both an apprentice and a Smoker. This assignment will be given in actual RP, so don't include that part in the character's history.

Approve Before Accepting?: No

I would like to adopt.

Here's a rough concept:

Deodat was the son of a cobbler. His father’s trade went back something like four generations, and they had been making shoes for a long time before owning the shop. Funnily enough, as a child, Deodat never enjoyed wearing shoes. He grew up the fourth of seven children, with an oldest sister, and three older brothers. Two of them were twins, though they didn’t look like each other at all. He grew up following in his father’s footsteps, and learning the trade since he could handle small sharp objects, which was a surprisingly young age. He was very dextrous.

When he was young he got out of the back room, sneaking a peek at his father’s dealings with an infamous customer along with his older brothers, despite their sister’s threats. They were curious children, and what was forbidden was usually grown-up dangerous things they wanted to be able to do.

The nobleman saw them and requested for the shoes to be polished as well. His father complied. The noble, whose name Deodat never really bothered to learn, enjoyed his shoes, and stepped on his father’s hand as he tested them. He couldn’t work for a week, Deodat, his brothers, and his sister had to do his job for him. He found it was like an odd metaphor, being a cobbler. That a Skaa would make that which the nobles use to step on them, and in doing so be granted a less awful life than the thieves, urchins, or guards, or some servants even. A reward for further enabling their cruelty.

He hated making shoes. All his life, he had known how, and he had done it, but he hated it. Shoes were what nobles used to step on skaa. He felt like he was aiding in a crime. As he grew older, these feelings intensified, and he began to get involved in the rebellion and pull his weight less in his father’s shop. He wasn’t vital, after all, he had six siblings, all of them old enough to work.

He began hating nobles even more when he realized he was probably part-noble. His hair and his eyes looked so different from his siblings’ and he was so much taller than them... And, after a particularly vicious beating from a drunken guard, he Snapped. When he asked his mother, she told him his real father had been a nobleman. She'd been attacked by him one night, and she had kept quiet about it, and his father raised him as his own regardless. As his oldest brother inherited the shop, he decided that he didn’t really have to stay in the shop, and left.

Five years passed, during which he was recruited by the Rebellion, almost got killed by two children, hired as a cobbler in two different occasions, attacked by large dog, killed, and discovered he really liked sewing clothing. Making vests and jackets and cloaks and shirts and gowns… granted, it was harder than he thought, but it was also funner than he thought.

His job as a smoker meant he stayed mostly in one place, and also meant that he was almost constantly smoking, which he didn’t really mind. He would do anything for the rebellion. Except maybe cobbling again. That would be a nightmare.
