Name: Argylwyd (to conform to human naming he uses Wyldheart as a "family name".)
Aliases: Smiling Tiger
Apperance: Facial features like a mid-twenties human. Long, slicked back rusted orange leaves as hair, with crimson tips. Light green skin, with oak-brown bark patterns. Taller than most sylvari, comes up to a norn's shoulder.
Story/Origin history: A lot like the Soundless, Argylwyd has a very weak connection with the Pale Tree and the Dream. Unlike the Soundless it isn't voluntary. He dreamt, he Awoke, and he has a weak connection to the Dream since. However he was never cast out or ostracized because of it. There was no tragedy or trauma. He was included like any other sapling. But as the initial wonder all Sylvari have for Tyria started to vain, Argylwyd found himself without a purpose. He had no Wyld Hunt, no destined vocation. He was free to do whatever he wanted. Except he had no idea what he wanted.
So he started wandering, doing whatever caught his fancy. Honing his skills with blades with the Nightmare Court. Drifting between outposts in Caledon and Kessex. Entertaining the troops and villagers with his stories, playing cards in the Ascalon Settlement. Pulling a few muggings and burglaries in Divinity's Reach. Banding up with pirates, raiding on the Sea of Sorrows. Flirting with a norn huntress in Shelter Rock. Relaxing in the Zelechor Hot Springs. Living life for the sake of living life.
Quite a few of his adversaries, accomlices, and partners have picked up on this, comparing him to the tigers of the Maguuma Jungle. A fierce, lonesome, yet friendly and cooperative creature, that is deadliest when attacking from an ambush.
All this travel, drifting, adventure led to Argylwyd not only coming to terms with his aimlesness, but outright embracing it. He found contentment in his lot in life. Enjoyment in experiencing all that he can in this world.
All this put together resulted in him getting the nickname: Smiling Tiger, which Argylwyd immediately took up as his own.
Personality: What people dealing with him tend to forget is that at the end of the day Argylwyd is a crook, a thief, and an adventurer. He is well accustomed to violence, to constant threat, having to always watch his back. When he agrees to play by any rules and laws, it's purely because it's worth it for him.
What makes Argylwyd stand out among other criminals is that he has absolutely no interest in wealth. Whatever he gets, he spends right away. On a strong drink, a hearty meal, a game of chance, and companionship. He has nothing to gain and everything to experience.
Strengths, talents: Argylwyd is self-reliant, self-sufficient and despite all odds most;y self-actualizing. Because of this he is helpful to those in need, and confident in his abilities. He is also a keen observer, noticing small, out-of-ordinary details with ease.
Weaknesses, detriments: Despite being a joyous and helpful person Argylwyd is rarely a team player. He strongly dislikes any disturbance in his "way of doing things". But if his boundaries are respected he is willing to cooperate with little hassle.
He also has never worked an honest day in his life so his work ethic is lacking at best, non-existent at worst.
Despite his "profession" as a thief and criminal, Argylwyd cannot lie. He's simply terrible at it. The only context in which he is proficent at lying is during his storytelling bouts. Which, for this reasong, are highly entertaining, and may or may not be true.
Favored alcoholic beverage: Red wine, spiced apple cider
Favored food: Simple Poultry Soup, Roasted Meaty Sandwich, Green Bean Stew, Grape Pie, and Cinnamon Pinwheel (He's a Sylvari of great appetite.)
