Biography (Please make this at least 2 paragraphs long. This must include the history of your character and his life as well as age, appearance and personality, etc.):
Tidus was never a lone man. He was always extremely social. Born into a wandering pack of merchants, Tidus had never really had a normal life. It was always one place to another very quickly. There was nothing odd about Tidus' early life. He gathered, and foraged. He was quickly introduced to gold, and the life of a merchant. Tidus decided that this was what his life would be devoted to. Tidus was never sure of who his parents were. The merchants said that when they stopped in a village a baby was dropped off to them. By his looks he had dark yellow skin, and blonde hair. He assumes that he is a southerner by blood.
When Tidus came of age he decided that he would leave the group that loved him so much. He left to go to Arethor where he wanted to start a new life. He decided that he would open the finest trading company these lands have ever seen. Tidus had not really understood anything else but how to grow and nurture a piece of gold.
Tidus was not really religious, or interested in politics. There was perhaps one thing that was almost attractive to Tidus as money, and that was women. Tidus was far from a ladies man. In fact, he had never even been in a real relationship before. Every time he was with a woman when he wandered, his heart was already played with, and eventually destroyed. Tidus is also a slight bit of a pervert, and he a a permanent scar on his right arm to remind him of that.
What is your Character's ambitions?: Tidus' ambitions are to grow the largest trading company in all of the lands..
What is your character’s favorite tool? (sword, pickaxe, shovel, etc): Tidus' favorite tool is the axe. He was trained to fell a tree from a young age, and he learned how to craft fine works of wood. His other tool is his voice. He is a great speaker, and uses his deception like a knife.
What is one of your Character's most skilled talents? Tidus' most skilled talent is woodworking, and deception. He is also fairly skilled in the art of assassination, be it through means of poison, or a dagger.

Other Information about your Character:
Whilst traveling from the Cloud Temple you see a small halfling, being harassed by two armed warriors. They appear to be trying to steal money from him, how does your character respond? Tidus is not a fighter. He will wait to see what happens and if the half-ling somehow manages to escape, he will be quick to cut the purse of the halfling. Tidus is one to analyze the situation, and make sure he will succeed, and that he will not get caught.
Your character wanders into Alras, and comes across a small stall, behind which a well dressed man is standing. He’s offering various wares, the merchant turns to you and says in a posh accent " 'ello there, what can I do you for today?" What is your character response?
My character will take time to examine the wares. He knows a good deal when he sees them, and even if he cannot use the wares he will buy them, and sell them for profit.
Whilst wandering in the wilds, your character comes across a small hut, which looks abandoned. Inside it you see a chest containing a few iron bars, and a golden sword. How would your character respond?: My character will be quick to pocket the items. They're free and Tidus would quickly jump at the chance to be able to make such a profit.
Hungry and lost in the wilderness, you stumble across a small trading camp nestled among the forest, they greet you you in the common tongue, how do you respond?
I know that it would not be wise to steal from such a large group alone, so I would converse with them, and see if they had any wares that I could possibly make profit from.
You hear word that bandits occupy the road outside the town in which you have been staying. The town guard have gathered, and are asking for assistance to help eliminate them. The leader of the party is offering a reward for any who offer their support. How does your character act on this information?:
Tidus is not a fighter so he would go, but would slack off until the very end. He will then carefully maneuver a lie to make sure that he looks like a hero. That way he will be able to cash in the reward. If needed he will lure his party, and silently kill them so he can gain all of the reward. He holds no personal attachment to people he's just met.
