So based on the thing below, I thought it would be a nice idea for everyone to share the characters and their background stories you came up with based on the portraits that are available in IWD and IWD2.
Basically, your headcanons for each portrait.
Here are all the portraits:
Alright, I'll make the start.
Here is my party from IWD2 (for my other playthroughs I used custom portraits).Name:
Ribert van GorgenRace:
Paladin of HelmAlignment:
Honorable, kind, stubborn, a bit naive, overly optimistic, keen, sometimes reckless, likable, not the smartest, sometimes sad about his age and that he is not as athletic as he used to be, very religious, dutifulBio:
Ribert grew up in Neverwinter, as a member of a lower royal family. He knew soon that he wanted to be a Paladin and so he joined the local order of Helm. When he was in his mid twenties, he married a woman of the same noble class, with which he had two daughters, Anar and Mara. About ten years ago, he left his order and moved with his family to Luskan, in hopes that he could bring some justice into the sinfilled town.Name:
Anar van GorgenRace:
laid back, practical, stubborn, rough, snarkyBio:
Anar was a teenager when her family moved to Luskan, where she quickly slipped into the darker sides of the town, much to her parent's dismay. After a few rebellious years, she got back in line again and joined the city guard, where she was trained as a fighter. Unlike the rest of her family, she is not overly religious.Name:
silent, introvert, doesn't like crowds, practicalBio:
Martin grew up in a village near Luskan and was trained as a gatekeeper. The others don't know much about him because he mainly keeps to himself. He does seem to follow Anar around, though.Name:
Mara van GorgenRace:
Cleric of HelmAlignment:
Stubborn, serious, keen, dutiful, strong sense for justice, not a good sense of humor, leeryBio:
Unlike her older sister, Mara never fell in with shady figures of Luskan. She began to despise the city very early, which led to her wanting to step into her father's footsteps. However, she wasn't cut out to be a warrior like her dad and sister, so she decided to become a cleric instead.Name:
Quick, self proclaimed lady's man, kleptomaniac, troublemaker, good actorBio:
Ricardo originally hails from Athkatla. His parents where terrible which lead to him becoming a streetrat. He likes women a lot and it's his hobby to woo them (sometimes more successful than other times). He travels a lot, mostly to escape the cityguard and husbands of the places he has been too. One day it took him to Luskan where he made the mistake to break into the van Gorgen estate. Ribert caught him and the two made a deal, that Ricardo would have to be Ribert's servant and help him to fight for justice in exchange for not handing him over to the guards. The two actually became friends and now Ricardo follows the paladin out of his own will. Though it looks a lot like he only sticks around to be close to Ribert's daughters ....Name:
Kind, patient, eloquent, curious, smart, wise, likes children, likes teaching, a bit of an airheadBio:
Gabaldras originally hails from Evermeet but he was soon get the travel bug and moved to the mainland where he became an instructor at the wizard's academy. There he met the back then only seven year old Ribert's mother, who herself was a teacher at the academy. They became friends and Gabaldras became like an uncle to Ribert. Many years later, when Ribert himself became a father, he became Anar's and Maya's godfather.
