((OOC: Does your character look the same as she or he is presented in-game, or is there something different? Taller, shorter, thinner, heavier, hair color or style not quite right?))

((Actually, Vivimord, for the most part, looks just like his in-game avatar! If it were possible for Forsaken to be even thinner, then he probably would be. He was gaunt in life, and death really doesn't improve one's figure.

Many of my ideas for his appearance were actually inspired by the model. He has drab and lifeless long, grey hair (I remember people assuming he was bald, because he always has his cowl up). The flesh from his cheeks has decayed away, so you can see his teeth even when his mouth is closed. Luckily, there was a creased/wrinkled face option, which reflects his age (87 when he died in Warcraft III, 97 as of the Cataclysm).

Only two things would be different, I suppose. Firstly, his eyes wouldn't be glowing yellow. He has white, blind eyes. Secondly, and this is something I've heard complaints about from Forsaken players many times, he wouldn't have so much of his skeletal frame showing. He wouldn't have any showing, in fact. His finger bones wouldn't be poking from the end of his gloves, nor would his toes, or his ribs, or his elbows be exposed. Only his face.

I actually got most of my inspiration for Vivimord from the The Name of the Rose, if any of you have seen that film. The character of Venerable Jorge:

{{Vonka doesn't have exposed bone, and actually seems quite well preserved at first glance. If she removed her robes, though, there would be a huge scar on her belly as though someone had tried to disembowel her. She also should look somewhat older than the standard female Forsaken model, having been of middle age (and having borne three children who had all reached adulthood) before she died.

Grizellmane should actually have a grizzled mane. She is probably around the human-equivalent of her early 50s. Still vigorous, but past bearing and rearing calves.

And Deanathrae should look more undead, and have the faded remnants of Kaldorei facial markings if one were to study her features closely. Not that it would be easy to do so, since she keeps her helmet on as much as possible.

Most of the others look reasonably like the in-game toon.}}

((I wouldn't be surprised if Grap was missing a finger.

Cakami would have a few facial scars and such, maybe the remains of a tatoo (brand?) on his shoulder.

Zarc would look even younger (She would have been about 20 when Arthas attacked Silvermoon) and her eyes would probably not be as green.

Phreska would probably look no different but would have nervous tics and be very "fidgety".))

((Fae's hairstyle is off, I really hate the female troll hair options. Her hair is actually flowing long, down to her waist, with a single braid coming down from her part and laying against her left cheek with a bone and feather tied into the end. Her hips are a bit wider than the in game avatar, and her feet slightly smaller. Her eyes violet, rather than red, and she has a dark indigo tribal tattoo of a flowering vine with thorns looping around her right wrist and up to her shoulder.))

Most of my character models are pretty accurate. However, Yukinya would never actually show herself in Troll form and if she did she would have no tusks. Sharhzad is too well preserved, she should look a lot more like a female version of a skeletal warrior model. Amadie, should have a giant hole in his chest around where his heart should be. And lastly Ygglyn should have Elven runes all over her that look likr scars.

((Originally posted by Kaylia.))

((OOC:

Kaylia is probably much paler, redder-eyed, and likely wears darker make-up than her avatar might suggest. She would be closer in appearance to certain banshee we all know and love (except Vivi, but fuck him):



But, more importantly than ANYTHING else, is that Kaylia would NOT have that fucking annoying "Blood Elf" tag (or the dance, or the racials, or any of their bullshit). Her tag ought to be "Banshee" "Forsaken" or "Undead", with Forsaken dance, racials, etc. Just because Kaylia has her body back doesn't mean she's all "pretty" again. She'll fucking cannibalize with the best of them.

END OOC))

(( Even though blood elves are incredibly thin already, Triniel would be even thinner and more frail-looking. She uses makeup and clever tailoring to make her appear healthier than she is, but she's much more drawn and sickly than her model. Also she stands straight because what the hell are blood elves doing with their hips? Nobody knows... ))

((Originally posted by Cheshy.))

((Cheshy would be much darker complexion wise but with a dark purple hue as opposed to black. The sockets where his eyes would be would change color with the current soul. His skin would be charred, living thru the hellfire that altered him. He would also have three sets of weapons to accommodate the souls that reside in within. A staff, two daggers, and a wand made of demon horn. The top of his skull would have a hairline cut all the way around so he could pick at his brain to "make the screaming stop".))
