Character’s full name: Athlis Dor'anna
Reason or meaning of name: Dor'anna infact is a chosen name, as Athlis' mother died in childbirth and his father shortly before that. Dor'anna was selected for him as a placeholder name but it means and amounts to nothing.
Character’s nickname: Athlis the Amethyst
Reason for nickname: Athlis is a "Color Wizard", in so far as he would introduce himself much the way Gandalf the Grey would or Immerstal the Red, only his color is Violet and he uses the word Amethyst to represent that color in his nickname. So he is Athlis the Amethyst!

Hairstyle: Big fancy ponytail with strands hanging about his shoulders
Voice: If I had to do a claim it would be Gideon Emery. Deep, slow, thoughtful, and educated
Overall attractiveness: He never puts in effort to trying to attract a mate of any kind, just enough to be presentable. But apparently that draws all the boys and girls to the yard anyway
Physical disabilities: None yet
Usual fashion of dress: Robes inlaid with a particular type of gem, and various shades of the color purple
Favorite outfit: His primary Wizarding robes!
Jewelry or accessories: The Violet-Stone Amulet hanging around his neck, and a small brass Wolf Statuette off his belt. A large tome hooked by chain to his belt as well.
Alignment: Not applicable (I dunno, I hate alignment)
Good personality traits: Extremely friendly and warm. He goes out of his way to treat whoever he speaks to with respect, not because they deserve it but because it puts him in a good position. Will always seek to de-escalate a situation without bloodshed but is not afraid to resort to it if necessary.
Bad personality traits: An ever so slight racism. He does have the superiority complex of the High Elves but unlike most of them works hard to challenge those convictions. That being said he REALLY does not like Dwarves.
Mood character is most often in: Generally calm and observant. He takes his time evaluating a situation and thinking things over, but he is usually able to flip gregarious when the situation calls for it
Sense of humor: CHEESE
Character’s greatest joy in life: Reading. Learning knowledge has been what separated him from a life of hellish suffering time and time again, few things bring him more serotonin.
Character’s greatest fear: That he will fail, and a friend will die for it. Again...
What single event would most throw this character’s life into complete turmoil? Athlis has faced his fair share of turmoil already. This question will certainly change as his connections and bonds change moving forward. Suffice it to say, if Quel'Thalas snaps and fully breaks beyond the point of any chance at recovery he will be lost. Reuniting Quel'Thalas is his prime dream these days.
Character is most at ease when: Relaxing in familiar company. He goes out of his way to put on such a professional face around people that it can get exhausting. When he has truly good friends he can relax and be himself around is when he is at ease. Difficult to achieve.
Most ill at ease when: Being accosted by lesser fools. He isn't one for childish conflict, and the number of Humans constantly seeking it out can put him on edge at times.
Enraged when: Respect is thrown to the wind. Respect MUST be adhered to. For everyone. Always. Unless you actively prove unworthy of it.
Depressed or sad when: That's the sad thing about depression. Everything is broken, everything hurts, everything is falling apart, and you just don't know why. All you can do is get through the day with as bright a smile as you can manage to force.
Life philosophy: Anyone can build their own deliverance, no matter who you are. Anyone can be.
Character’s soft spot: He finds a close connection to other orphans, and those who have never experienced family. He himself never knew parents of any kind, and feels protective of others who have suffered the same.
Is this soft spot obvious to others? When he meets someone like that, yes.
Greatest strength: His ability to speak and hold the attention of others
Greatest vulnerability or weakness: His unyielding desire to see the best in people, even though he knows some people are black-hearted and nothing more.
Biggest regret: There had to be a way he could have saved her. There MUST have been a way he could have saved all the others without condemning her to death. But he could not find it in the moment. He had to do what he did, but he will never not hate himself for it.
Minor regret: Spending so long spurning the races of the south, and missing out on... Perspective.
Biggest accomplishment: Completing apprenticeship under the scouring tutelage of a demanding Wizard, and being acknowledged as one by his mentor. He always wanted to be a Wizard, a mage of power and a knower of many things. The day he was recognized as having achieved it is still a day he will cherish ever on.
Minor accomplishment: He managed to track down a half-crazed Forsaken who had found a deadly artifact of necromancy, and was able to stop the accursed one from raising a new army of the dead that would have threatened all of Kalimdor. Of course in Azeroth, saving lives is a boring Tuesday.
Past failures he/she would be embarrassed to have people know about: An Illidari by the name of Vael'kanis befriended him some years ago seeking his knowledge. Athlis put together what Vael was looking for only too late, and actually assisted him in removing the bindings Illidan put in place and allowing the demon to take over. Vael still stalks the world given wholly over to evil and Athlis feels partly responsible.
Character’s darkest secret: The last woman he let love him, he was forced to kill. She understood as did he that it had to happen, but he cannot bring himself to love again. He does not think he deserves to.
Does anyone else know? No, actually.
Drives and motivations: Returning the High Elves to their former glory and unity. Ending constant war in Azeroth. He wishes to see a world where cultures flourish again without endless suffering.
Immediate goals: Develop his knowledge further, establish contacts in the South, develop his own perspective
Long term goals: Establish a union between Sin'dorei and Ren'dorei, and see the end of both the Alliance and the Horde
How the character plans to accomplish these goals: Joining SWU is a big step towards exposing himself to people he would never interact with otherwise. Especially the Thalassians of the Alliance.
How other characters will be affected: He does not agree with or support the government of Silvermoon anymore than he does the Horde or the Alliance for that matter. He wishes to see Elves freed of their dependence on the Humans which, unfortunately, hurts the plans of those that would rather continue exploiting them.
Type of childhood: Street Urchin fighting for scraps
Pets: His spirit wolf companion, Catori
First memory: The smell of a dusty old tome he managed to get his hands on when young
Most important childhood memory: He witnessed a friend on the streets get caught up in the machinations of a roguish gang on Murder Row. The kid stole for the gang and took the fall of blame, and lost his life for it in a moment of heated passion. Athlis never forgot this, as this was when he learned you either make something of yourself or the world will make an example of you.
Current location: Travels often, but is now either in Silvermoon or Stormwind
Currently living with: Himself alone
Religion: The Light

Plays a sport: If an impromptu fun game springs up he will play, but nothing regular.
How he/she would spend a rainy day: Curled up with a good book by the fire, originality be damned!
Spending habits: When you need money, you work hard to make more. So if you have it and hard work can be done eventually, why cheat yourself of quality? He isn't a wild big spender but not the best saver either.

One word the character would use to describe self: Gregarious
One paragraph description of how the character would describe self: "I put on my airs and all expected whims of propriety. I know how to entertain as well as I know how to accommodate my audience. I am comfortable in this role, as comfortable as I am alone at night by the candle. I mean what I say always, even if it is calculated to the situation. The day I become boring is a day I dread more than anything."

What would the character most like to change about himself/herself: His prejudices. He does not advertise them but he has them, and wants to have fewer.
Relationships with others
Opinion of other people in general: Unfortunately it's a 50/50 toss up of whether someone is a decent person or an actively bad one. Good people are rare, but the most valuable of all.
Does the character hide his/her true opinions and emotions from others: Absolutely. Not to say that he is lying or that he acts completely contrary to how he feels. But he does put on a smiling response to most things in the moment and will usually keep his irritations to himself.
