Personality Traits: If you catch Psalm out on the town, you're in for a long night filled with the kind music, dance, and debauchery you would expect from a Bard of means, but there is a sensitive soul under the surface. The bombastic persona he wears when showing off for his friends or seducing his latest conquest is largely an act, and those that have had a glimpse behind the mask know that Psalm is still the bookish and soft spoken momma's boy who was cruelly bullied for most of his childhood.
Ideals: :
  • Family Man - The Melshimbers have stood by Psalm in the face of public scorn, and Psalm wants greatly to do right by the family and bring honor to the household.
  • Gratitude - Having been bullied for much of his life, Psalm is very mindful of those who have shown him kindness or assisted him in any way, and it gives him great joy to repay that kindness to friends in need.
  • It Gets Better - will not abide bullying and will step in to help when he sees it, as well as offering advice or a friendly ear to a victim when needed. (The Game of Houses may see plenty of nobles knocking the feet from beneath each other, but it's a largely level playing field)
    Bonds: :

(Family - TBD) (Harpers TBD) (Heralds TBD) (Brimstone Boys TBD)
Flaws: :

  • Hedonistic - rarely denies himself of any earthly pleasures, even if it puts him in a compromising position
  • Superstitious - believes in signs and omens and acts in accordance with his interpretations.
  • Vengeful - not one to forget a slight or a bad turn, and while he may appear to laugh it off or let it go unnoticed - you can be sure he's plotting a reckoning.

Background Traits

Waterdhavian Noble - You are a scion of one of the great noble families of Waterdeep. Human families who jealously guard their privilege and place in the City of Splendors, Waterdhavian nobles have a reputation across Faerûn for being eccentric, spoiled, venal, and, above all else, rich.

    • Languages: one additionallanguage of your choice
    • Equipment- a set of fine clothes, a signet ring or brooch, a scroll of pedigree, a skin of fine zzar or wine,and a purse containing 20 gp.

Feature: Kept in Style

  • while you are in Waterdeep or elsewhere in the North, your house sees to your everday needs. Your name and signet are sufficient to cover most of yor expenses; the inns, taverns, and festhalls you frequent are glad to record your debt and send an accounting to your family's estate in Waterdeep to settle what you owe.This advantage enables you to live a comfortable lifestyle without having to pay for it, or reduces the cost of a wealthy or aristocratic lifestyle by that amount.you may not maintain a less affluent lifestyle and use the difference as income - the benefit is a line of credit, not an actual monetary reward.
