Summary: Gerald is a good ol' boy, born and raise on the farm. He views things pretty simplistically overall; there's good, there's evil, but he does have a bias toward family and those on the poorer side of life. He doesn't have much of an education. He speaks with a 'southern' accent.

He is pretty reliable and strong. He is quite loyal to family and friends, though some may just call him naive in trusting people so readily. Being quick to stick up for people does tend to get him into trouble sometimes, as does his rude mouth.

Gerald never had any formal training in fighting, though he can handle himself in a fist fight. When it comes to archery, he prefers to keep to the shadows and strike from relative safety. Not much he can do if someone gets up close, though he does have a fruit knife. Not that it would be much help against a sword...

Appearance: Gerald has short, dark blonde hair. He is pretty rough around the edges, owing to his upbringing on the farm. He has a small beard. His eyes are a dark brown color.

His armor consist almost entirely of leather he tanned himself. He wears a cloth undershirt, over which he wears a leather tunic. He has thick leather gloves, perfect for farm work. Around his waist is a belt, attached to which is a pouch. He wears cloth pants and hard leather boots. All in all, it's a perfectly bland look, though the muted colors help him blend into forested areas.

Bio: Gerald was born to a large farming family in the Strati Territory of the Marcelli Empire. His family had a rather large portion of farmland they were responsible for, so he never lacked for work. Even from a young age he was busy helping his father in the fields, tending to the crops, the cows, whatever he was asked to do.

Even though he was busy, as he grew up he just wasn't satisfied with the farm life. For one, he had several older siblings who would, no doubt, continue the family farm when his ma and pa were too old to continue tending it. Even if he liked farming, there was no way he'd inherit the family farm. For two, he yearned to see the outside world. He had heard things from his friends about all the amazing things the outside world held. He definitely wanted to see it with his own eyes.

When Gerald was older, he was taught how to use the bow by his father to hunt game. The farm had some woods nearby which game could be hunted, though the forest wasn't particularly large anymore, having largely been cleared out for farmland. Gerald became pretty good with the bow (in his own eyes, at least) over time; when he wasn't hunting game he had set up a range to continue practice. Finally, something he could use all that excess straw for!

Eventually, it was time for Gerald to leave home. With tears and goodbyes, he did so. He didn't have a plan, much less a map, but he didn't care. Anywhere but boring ol' Strati would be an adventure.
