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.

Weaknesses: As of right now she doesn't trust anybody. She feels that she must look out for herself in order to survive. She knows her place in the world but dreams of something more while knowing that the way things are done most likely will never change

She is very shy around everybody. She keeps on the edge of her fet most of the time, not knowing when someone might try to kill her or rape her. She dreams of a better brighter future but knows that it is just a silly whim most likely and that there would be no way of ever overthrowing the immortal lord ruler. She wishes that she could have some friends but at the same time doesn't want anybody to get too close to her for fear that they will leave her feeling hurt and/or betrayed.

She was born to Crystal Winters, a Skaa woman, and a nobleman who was a mistborn. Her father let Crystal go free and Aurora was born nine months later . A year later tried to kill both of them once he found them on strict orders from the Lord Ruler himself. Crystal escaped with Aurora and her father was executed as punishment. Her mother died of disease seven years later but not before she found a crew for Aurora to join. She didn't know what to expect and she was treated poorly when she first joined. Her other crewmembers beat her when she did something small that they didn't like and she learned to just accept the beatings. After two years with that theiving crew she moved on to a different plantation looking for another crew to join. She eventually found one after several weeks in the streets not knowing whether or not she would be alive the next morning. She found that this crew was no better. In fact it was even worse. This was when she snapped; however, she didn't know it yet. Her crew beat her but for some reason the injuries didn't hurt her very much. It was as if she was getting used to them or something. She then was chosen to be taken on a raid on a noble's house. She performed miraculously well by noticing that the guards were coming before anyone that had also gone had noticed. She had heard their footsteps coming up the stairs of the noble's keep. That night she was promoted to be second in command of her crew. She took this as a major step up and took her position with gratefulness. She did her best in the years to come but on her 14th birthday Inquisitors found out where their crew's hideout was and killed everyone in the crew except for her. She was being chased by the inquisitors but she somehow managed to give them the slip. From then until now she has only been traveling at night, avoiding going out in broad daylight for fear that she might be killed.

Roleplay Sample

It was a dark night and the mists were swirling about as they always did. Aurora hated the night but she also loved it. It was the only time that she could go out into the city. She stood up surveying the area carefully for any Inquisitors or guards. When she saw that the coast was clear she took off running, her steps as quiet as the wind. The first house that she spotted she went up to the door and carefully picked the lock. Making sure not to make any noise. She then entered the house beginning her nightly routine. She found a bag and carefully placed a bunch of food into it not letting anything make a sound. When she had gathered enough supplies to last her until the next night she silently fled from the house. She returned to her hiding spot and set her bag of food down beside her. She took out something to eat for dinner and she started to eat. I hope that I don't have to live like this forever She thought as she quietly ate her dinner whilst watching the mists float by in a pattern-like way.

Hi there, Aurora, and welcome to the RP! First of all, I'd like to apologize for the delay in getting back to you. Both of the site's admins are currently overwhelmed with schoolwork, so it's been hard to get much done on the site. But now, on to your character.

Unfortunately, we are overloaded with Mistborn right now, and aren't accepting any more unless they've been previously agreed upon for story reasons. Your character can be a Misting, or a normal skaa, but Mistborn are off-limits for now. I apologize for the inconvenience.

I also have just a couple tips for you: first of all, I'd like to see more character development in your RP sample. I know it's hard, but we prefer to see at least 2-3 paragraphs in these samples. 4 or 5 is better, but we understand that not everyone is an experienced writer. Try to really get into your character's head and explore her motivations, her voice, etc. Members aren't allowed to use other players' characters in an RP sample without permission, but you're free to create as many NPCs as you need if you need someone to interact with.

Also, please separate your paragraphs when you write. Your character's history is just one huge block of text, which makes it very hard to read.

Thank you, and I look forward to working with you to make Aurora a part of the RP!

One thing to know about this RP is that it is, say, a bit more advanced than a typical RP. So when Cami is saying you can't be a Mistborn, this is not trying to restrict you per se. I would just rather see new characters who are Mistings, so we can see your power of character development, without relying on the character being Mistborn.
