Name: Thalonious Munk
Professions: First-Aid, Cooking, Fishing, Mining, Weaponsmith
Current Home: Shattrath, Aldor terrace
Brief Physical Description:
Thalonious is pretty roughly built. He has thick skin and isn't too well kept sporting a beard and long hair. He is a seasoned holy knight in about his late 30s early 40s and can usually be found with a bright and cheery look on his face.
Brief Personality Description:
Thalonious was raised by the church and was always taught to be courtious and righteous. At times he can even be pretty innocent or naive towards certain things. However, in growing up and just experiencing new things, temptation has sometimes gotten the best of him at times. His greatest vice would be a strong ale. Whenever the Darkmoon Faire is in Elwynn, it is common to see Thalonious stocking up on some Darkmoon Ale Special Reserve. Other than that though, Thalonious is a kind hearted individual who is protective of those who he calls friends or loved ones.
Goals and motivators:
Thalonious' greatest motivation would be to become a stronger person not for himself, but to be able to protect those who are important to him.
Passionate about the war:
With Thalonious' drive to protect his loved ones, the war is very important to his ideals of being able to protect his friends and loved ones. With every word of an alliance village being raided just fuels Thalonious' passion to the fight.
A typical quote from your character:
Not much is known about Thalonious' history before he arrived at the orphanage in Stormind at a very young age. Know one knows how he got there, but he was quickly taken in and raised around the church for most of his adolescent life. It wouldn't take long before Thalonious would begin to learn of the conlfict of the war in the world and many of the injustices that go on outside of Stormwind's protective walls. This would be the catalyst for young Thalonious to begin his training as a holy knight.
It wasn't easy for Thalonious to catch on the ways of a protector. Growing up and training, his only family would be the orphanage and church, so he valued them greatly and soon developed a strong sense of protectiveness towards his comrads. He was a bit clumbsy and never really good at his studies, which is probably why he went the way of the paladin over a priest (the large amounts of texts he would haev to read was too much). However, he was diligent in his training and slowly began to overcome his shortcomings as a natural talent and genius. He would soon become a full fledged paladin and set forth to do good in other parts of the world outside of Stormwind for the first time.
Thalonious, outside of Stormwind, would meet up with the Emerald Guard who would soon become his new "family" and guild. In the early days of his enlistment, he would go on to found a sub-group of the guard called "Team Sea Slug". Which consisted of Diddamous the gnomish mage, Cauri the elven holy priestess, and himself. Together this team would spend many of days together questing around parts of Dark Shore and Ashenvale. They would become a very tight knit group and would eventually lead to a close relationship between him and Cauri. Both being of the church, they had a natural common ground and would get along swimmingly. Later, she would leave for a short while to go on a holy pilgrimage. Thalonious would be left in the Emerald Guard without his closer of friends... until an unlikely partnership.
Thalonious would soon find a new traveling friend in Alycacia, a warlock with a sassy mouth. The two seemed to be from completely differerent worlds one utilizing darker sources of power, while the other using the light for power. The ideals and way of life alone were alien to another but despite these differences, the two managed to become partners. First starting out fighting the Horde in their home territories and would go on to travel together. The two and others from the guild would later have several odd encounters with the underbelly of Elwynn's Goldshire (refer to picture gallary for details).
When the Dark Portal was opened, Thalonious has had a sort of holy awakening. One that most paladins should have gone through at a younger age, but perhaps he was just late too bloom. With his new found awakening he had found his way through the portal. As a surprise even to Thalonious, he would be reunited with his love, Cauri Mytalar. They would soon be together and working in a common cause against the Burning legion. Now, Thalonious makes the great city of Shattrath his home as it is a central point to his cause.
