Hey all, thanks to the extended deadline, I have my character and entry done!
My player entry;
Aarla Delvingwood ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The oldest daughter of a retired Lenfel army commander, Aarla was born and raised in Stonewald, on her father’s estate, along with her two sisters and her brother. When she was of age, Aarla chose to join the Ranger Corps, a move her father ardently supported, but her mother did not, having wanted her daughter to marry a close friend’s son and start a family. Aarla defied her, and after joining the Ranger Corps, quickly rose through the ranks, becoming one of the best Rangers in or around Stonewald, with an impressive mission count. That is, until one day, when she quit, leaving the Corps and Stonewald, although she still maintains contact with her family. She cited having tired of the rules and restrictions of the the Corps, as well as a desire to roam the land and do her own thing, as the reasons she left, although there are some who say there were other, more personal reasons involved. Whatever the reasoning, she now roams the nation as a traveling adventurer, and occasionally a mercenary, her trusty longbow, custom-made by Tilmund of Ainesford, at her side. Having heard of the C.R.A.S.H games from a friend, Aarla decided to enter, as the chance for glory, as well as the sheer thrill of the competition, were too much for her to resist.

Raised by the Order of the Shadows, he was expelled from the warrior priests ranks after being unable to rid himself of his hedonistic passions. He fled to the Shade where he used his skills and charisma to great success in the criminal underworld. He lives a life of adventure and takes every risk he can, desperate to achieve the next big rush.
Charles Ander proudly rode in as eyes starred at his unconventional chariot. His comrades say he's the bravest of the whole countryside. Charles is always trying out new inventions, and has come close to death several times during his experiments. His latest invention, a platform for standing atop racing horses may be his most dangerous idea yet.
He's been training for a long time (2 weeks), and is now ready to out-maneuver his opponents on the track.
Sir Gerald was a commander in charge of 100 Loreesi cavalry. Unfortunately, there was a mishap at one point in his career, and Sir Gerald was replaced by a more illustrious individual. To prove his worth, bravery, and strength, he entered the games as a chance to redeem himself in the eyes of his fellow Loreesi.
Fletcher is a fiery bowman from the forests of Central Lenfald. He makes his living logging and hunting, but ever since his friend Malachi left for the new world, he has begun yearning for adventure. When a messenger arrived at his remote village near Stoneborough bearing news of the games, he was intrigued by the chance to demonstrate his skill at archery. However, the origin and location of the games have created a personal conflict for Fletcher. He bears an unusual hatred toward the Loreesi, as his father was killed in the War of Loreesi Aggression, and believes that Chartres is a total fraud. Being something of a conspiracy theorist, he has even propounded the theory that the games are actually a scheme to trap and capture the best of Lenfald's archers and athletes. Fletcher's patriotism, competitive spirit, and belief in his own invincibility have overcome his prejudices and suspicion, and he has resolved to enter the games. Nonetheless, he still plans to keep a sharp eye on the Loreesi and King's officials, and to keep his longbow close at hand.
He has trained from his youth with the bow, and uses a powerful longbow with deadly accuracy. While he is no thief, he is naturally stealthy from years of hunting game, and has creative problem-solving skills. He is reasonably strong, but he is not experienced with spear throwing, as he feels the bow is a far superior weapon. He has little skill with horses or chariots.
Greden may be getting on in years, but he's hoping that his decades of practice and many years of working the seas on a spear-fishing vessel will help translate into a win in his homeland events. His powerful frame and hot-tempered nature have earned him the nickname of "The Bull" among his younger counterparts.
