Character name: Branwynn al'Lerin
Skills: Channeling, sword fighting, and gambling.
Hair: Light Brown
Discription: He has a medium build, not really muscular, but still pretty strong. He wears common village clothes and a wide-brimmed brown leather hat. He loves drinking and gambling and flirting with the ladies. And though he doesn't care for cheating at dice, he is really good at it and loves cheating cheaters out of their gold. And while he does not care much for fighting, he won't back down from one. He has a very sarcastic sense of humor and isn't shy about swearing, which tends to offend a lot of people for some reason. Especially those bloody nobles.
Bio: Born and raised in Baerlon, Bran, as most people call him, grew up with decent parents who encouraged him to do the best he could, despite the trouble he always got into as a child. He was seen as the town hooligan, and anytime something went amiss, he was usually involved some how, like putting oil on horses' feet and making them wreck the wagons they pulled or putting gun powder in someone's pipe.
From the young age of ten, he has enjoyed playing dice and learned every trick of the game by the age of thirteen. When he was seventeen, after winning more than he usually did one day, a man and his buddies accused him of cheating and tried to take his coin. When he refuse, they carried him out of the bar and started beating him up. Then all of a sudden, it happened. As he tried to find the Flame in the Void, as he father taught him, fire shot from his hands and burnt two of the guys' clothes to ashes, causing all three to run away. Bran stood there in shock at what had happened, not believing he had actually channeled.
A few days later, he found himself sicker than he had ever been. That was when he was visited by three asha'man who had sensed him channeling. He was unsure about going with them and joining the Black Tower, but his curiosity and urge to travel got the better of him and he agreed. But despite his raw strength in the power and having the spark inborn, his training proved more difficult than most as he was very stubborn and didn't like doing what he was told.
Eventually, he learned to control his channeling and even learned a few weaves with ease that took others weeks to learn properly. But despite his quickening advancement, he was still as stubborn as ever and got on almost everyone's bad side. So once he was raised to Dedicated, he chose to leave, the militant, structured lifestyle was not for him. But before he left, they shielded him to the point he could barely light a candle, and he has been that way since. Now, he goes from town to town gambling and chasing girls and getting in fights, often going under different names since his name has spread about him being a cheater or very lucky.
