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.

Hair: Brown, graying. Short and curly.

Height: 6'3"
Weight: 200
Voice: Tenor
Overall Appearance: A large scar dominates his face, arcing from his hairline to the middle of his right cheek. His right eye is white and useless, but he does not wear a patch. The scar also left a long streak of his hair white. A veteran soldier, he has an intimidating aura about him.

Other
Special Skills: Tactics,
Strengths: Military Strategy. He is familiar with how koloss work, and how to train skaa into soldiers.
Weaknesses: Just discovering allomancy, he is burning pewter mostly instinctively. Not a good drinker.

Personality
Brand thinks with his muscles. He always has. He is hotheaded and flamboyant for a Skaa. He's also very optimistic, oddly enough. He thinks little of the Skaa rebellion, believing them to be weak and unorganized. He has always provided well for his wife and children through his soldiering. He believes in The Lord Ruler, but has an unnatural dislike for obligators.

History
Brand has no idea who his father is, but his mother was a whore. Not out of choice, you understand.

He married his first lover when he was 17 and she 15, before she could be sent to the whorehouses. They struggled for several months before he enlisted in the military. He has four children now, with another on the way.

A few weeks ago, his platoon made a foray into the Twists to root out a very small skaa insurgency. It was intended to be a show of force. They surrounded the building suspected, and he started to pull the inhabitants out of the building to be beheaded at fountain square. A soldier behind him saw his wife being dragged out and surged forward to attack Valkyn, who was doing the dragging. One of the other soldiers hit the attacker through the heart with an arrow, but the attacker's axe split open Valkyn's face.

Unbeknownst to him, these injuries caused him to snap.

Brand healed remarkable quickly. ;)

Roleplay Sample
The mists made Brand nervous. They just weren't natural. They obscured the night. They blocked his vision. They made it impossible to discern any threats on the horizon.

Not that there would be any, but Brand did his duty. He never slept on watch, and not because he feared an officer's whip. It was just who he was. His family counted on him to discharge his duties to the best of his ability. They needed the clips. Besides, he needed the time to make up stories for little Landra.

His recent injuries hadn't helped with that. His wife was aghast and horrified, at first, but she had been the one to suggest that he would look better without the eyepatch. Larina always did like scars, strange girl. He liked it. He thought it made him look indomitable. Just a word he had heard an officer say once.

He gazed out over the wall at the empty fields. The skaa should be coming out soon. Dawn was approaching. The mists were starting to clear away. Larina would have breakfast ready for him when he got home. She was so pretty pregnant.

Brand smiled as the sun rose, red and rosy. Only a few small ash clouds in the sky, the sun staining their undersides crimson. It was going to be a beautiful day to sleep through.

Now that Hemalurgy is expunged from the application, it works better. Giving him a wife is good to give Brand depth. Hopefully he's more than a one-note character, but there's already two conflicts to deal with. Good. Explore these, and he should be a lot of fun.
