Oh! Never thought that was the same bird. xD


Apparently colibri is a specific genus within the hummingbird family. So it makes it more specific what kind of hummingbird he's comparing her to, but most players are just going to look at the screen and blink. x.x
"Tyranny is a quiet thing at first, a prim and proper lady pursing her lips and shaking her head disapprovingly, asking, well what were you doing (wearing that dress, walking home at that hour, expressing those inappropriate thoughts) anyway? It's subtle and insidious, disguised as reasonable precautions which become more and more oppressive over time, until our lives are defined by the things we must avoid. She's easy enough to agree with, after all, she's only trying to help -- and yet she's one of the most dangerous influences we face, because if she prevails, it puts the raping, robbing, axe-wielding madmen of the world in complete control. Eventually they'll barely need to wield a thing, all they'll have to do is leer menacingly and we fall all over ourselves trying to placate them." -godlizard

Though I have to admit that Colibri is prettier than Hummingbird.

Heya! Can I grab "vulture" for Angelo (since Irenicus seems to have ceded the title)?

(And I was hoping to nail "magpie" for a future project but I see Fade beat me to the punch. Damn tieflings are quick.)

Also Irenicus aint no vulture. Vultures eat carrion, Irenicus was all hardcore. I can't imagine him as anything other than an a giant eagle with a cybernetic implant over one eye.

Might as well add one here. Halbo is a kite. And yes, that IS a bird, not just a toy that flies in the wind. :)

Nice. I always liked Miriam, and Dark Raven isn't bad either.

Despite suggested as a joke on my part, Cason will be called (to his own great annoyance) "Catfish". I know it's not a bird name but Haer'dalis have been known to make exceptions to that "rule" in the past so I'm sticking with it.

Her locks were as yellow as gold
Her skin was white as leprosy.
The Nightmare Life-in-Death was she,
Who thicks man's blood with cold.

Not released yet, but Dravin will be a Gyrfalcon.

I'm fairly proud of finding a bird that a) wasn't taken and b) fit him so very well.

Ninde is Jaguar? You'd use a car company's name?
*Wikis Jaguar*
Ooooooooh it's a black leopard cat! My Foreign language skills failed me once again, and car apprenticeship doesn't help much either...

Nah, it's a joke, I know what it is (Or do I?) :whistling:

Anything that would suit an Assassin best? Something that lurks in the dark and hunts its preys using stealth and precision? Definitely not Owl, owl would probably suit a Demarch of Mask... hmm... or a cleric with heavy black eyes due to late night studying and scrolling
I am: Human-Essentric (Halflings/Gnomes/Dwarves/Tieflings are favored)
Fetish: Backstab Ability (That includes Blackguards!)
Alignment: Mainly Any Evil and, to some extent, Chaotic Neutral
Nemesis:
Aasimar (Unless s/he's evil like Belueth the Calm)
Elf (I just don't like those pointy ears)
Paladin (You could guess why)
Weapon of Choice:
Short Sword/Thrown Daggers + Buckler

Sorry for the inconvenience, but since I am such a noob, I've changed some things in Fiars NPC and now Haer'Dalis calls him cheerful cuckoo (new) and hound of darkness (as before). No red ravens.

Crow, perhaps? ^_^

Ezekiel will be called feral cat or spotted one.
