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.

Kandra - Blessing of Presence

Player Information
Handle : BelKaal
Contact : AIM: TheMiniStephan, Email: mythrelmff (at) yahoo.com

Character Information
Name: BelKaal
Age: Sixth Generation
Type: Kandra
Gender: As male as a Kandra can be.
Blessing: Blessing of Presence
Marital Status: N/A

Hair: Usually without, though, if the situation requires it, short brown.
Eyes: Usually dark blue, though when angry, deep brown
Height: Prefers taller forms
Weight: On the skinnier side for Kandra, especially when compared to Fifth generation Kandra.
Voice: Higher tenor, a bit quieter than is comfortable for general conversation, though when riled, BelKaal's voice takes on a more gruff and heavier tone to it.
Overall Appearance:In the homeland, BelKaal prefers a lanky stone True Body, though it is usually dyed a darker tan hue. In the outside world, of course, he wears whatever body he is given, so his appearance is usually in flux.

Special Skills: Impersonation and Stealth
Strengths: Unusual Kandra Finesse: BelKaal can form denser muscle tissue than a normal Kandra. He learned this ability due to fragile True Bodies and a rather embarrassing clumsy streak as a young Kandra. This allows him to be more dexterous, though it can slow him down.
Weaknesses: His temper, and occasionally easily distracted.

BelKaal is a soft spoken Kandra, though he has been becoming more easily irate recently in his life. When discussing philosophical topics, BelKaal becomes more excitable, both in his anger and his enjoyment. Most of the time, however, his is lost in his own thoughts, waiting to serve those who he views as inferior, yet still above his station. He is not distracted, simply assessing his perspectives as he experiences more of the world around him.

BelKaal was one of many to be taken in during the birth of the Sixth Generation, but one of the few to take to the Third Generation so quickly. During his days as a recently-born Kandra, BelKaal had trouble adopting to using only two legs. Because of his unusual ailment, BelKaal was ridiculed by the others of his and the Fifth generations. Those who seemed to help him the most were those of the Third, and BelKaal quickly found friends among them. He viewed the Kandra he should have been raised with as unremarkable, tied to the Seconds with a fierce loyalty that earned them scraps like favored dogs.

In his discussions with the Thirds, BelKaal started to view the world as a harsher place, not only in the eyes of a Kandra, but in the eyes of a living being. The world was slowly deteriorating, and all the Kandra could do was serve the Contract. The nobles were wasting away the planet, and the pointless wars were only strengthening Ruin's grip on their hearts.

After his first few experiences serving nobles in the outside world, BelKaal's views on humanity had only been confirmed. Nobles were wasteful, arrogant men who couldn't see past their balls and politics. They were not worth of his talents, but again, the Contract must be served. Those without honor would continue to hire the Kandra, and BelKaal's moods were growing darker the more time he spent with the Thirds. The Seconds were going to act soon.

Roleplay Sample
"BelKaal of the Sixth Generation," KanPaar's voice called out in the small chamber, echoing slightly against the tall ceiling, "You stand before us here to accept a new Contract. Under the terms of the Contract, we have accepted payment. Will you serve?" The ritual's motions seemed stale, only a formality to disguise the true purpose of BelKaal's summons: to get him away from the Thirds.

BelKaal's activity lately had been rather upsetting to the Kandra of the Second Generation. They usually disapproved of anyone discussing what life could be like if the Kandra worked together as equals, in private or public. The seniority system that the Seconds had set up gave them all the power in the Homeland, especially when it came to any major decisions. Technically, the First Generation held the power, but they hadn't made a declaration to any Kandra except the Seconds in at least a century.

The reprehensible way that the Seconds ruled the Homeland was the main reason BelKaal continued to serve Contracts. However, outside the Homeland, the nobles were nearly as bad as the Seconds. They served Father as well, but in a way that made them seem almost...rebellious. True, they claimed to follow him, but they did not seem to take an active interest in his goals. Granted, BelKaal didn't know quite what those goals were, other than preparing for Ruin's return, but the nobles seemed to work for Ruin more than they did for Father.

The other Seconds in the room started to mutter as BelKaal took his time to answer. Usually, Kandra simply stated that they accepted the Contract and left on their journey. It wasn't something to mull over; it simply was done.

"I will accept this task you place before me," BelKaal announced, his voice stronger than usual, cutting off the chatter in the room. His eyes met KanPaar's, and he held them as he spoke again. "I accept the Contract and shall leave immediately, to prepare to serve." He would leave, just as the Contract required, and just as the Seconds wanted.

BelKaal would leave for his reasons, though, not because of the Seconds. He grabbed the paper with the details of his new Contract and strode out of the room before he let his temper get the best of him in front of those who could severely reprimand him.

Hello there, and welcome to the Mistborn RP! I'm Camille, one of your friendly neighborhood RP admins, and the reigning queen of character creation addictions. :P Your character is well-written, and so it's my pleasure to Accept your submission. My recommendation to you would be to post in the plotting forum to set up BelKaal's contract so you can get started roleplaying; while it's perfectly plausible to play under an NPC contract, there are a lot of plottings going on that could make for some great roleplays for you and BelKaal, and a PC contract would give you a lot more abilities for interaction. His frustration with the nobility's "service" to the Lord Ruler might make him a good hire for a character named Felicity Arduenna, if you're interested.

The choice is yours, but either way, I look forward to seeing you in the RP. And once again, welcome! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
