    Rath Condarrion, Last of the Slayes




    Most of the forum knows about Rath Condarrion, Last of the Slayes, or at least parts of him. He is a lover of women, smoker of fine cigars, friends with the gruff Doc, and a superb fighter.

    Rath was spawned from the mind of Andy, aka Nevermore, several years ago as an ultimate fighter for the battle arena. People seemed to like the character, and Andy liked the character, so he began using Rath in different RPs, adapting him to fight the theme. Over time, Rath grew into the lovable rogue we know today.

    Rath was born under a rarely seen moon, as a comet flew over head. Unusual, certainly, but not nearly as unusual as the rest of his life. By the time he could crawl, he was stealing his father's sword. By the time he could beat his father, war had broken out, and his father left for battle, dying when Rath was about 10.

    Several years later, his village was raided. His mother hid him, giving him her ancient necklace for protection. She, too, was killed, but his life was saved by the Slayes, a group of mercenaries. Jordain Gryfore saw potential in the boy, and goaded him into a fight. Afterward, Rath was pressed into service with the group.

    Quickly becoming one of the best fighters amongst the Slayes, he had two close companions, Jordain, his mentor, and Rosalyn Sunders. Like most young men, Rath was enamored by the beautiful Rosalyn, but unlike the others, he found a way into her heart.

    Rosalyn, a 'ball-buster' and tomboy despite her beauty, was one of the strongest fighters, and would kick the :censored: of anyone foolish enough to approach her. Most men would take their beating and leave. Rath fought her back. They fought so often, they became a partnership on the battlefield, protecting each other and defeating every enemy. Off the battlefield, they had fallen in love, though they still fought each other regularly. The one mission Rosalyn did not accompany Rath on, Rath lost his left arm. She blamed herself for the loss.

    Jordain, his mentor amongst the group, trained Rath well, and looked after him. When Jordain's family was kidnapped, and he was forced to betray the Slayes, he negotiated to save Rath. In the end, Jordain and Rosalyn both died in that betrayal.

    Depressed by Rosalyn's death, Rath left to wander around. After several years, and a few one night stands, he met a strange girl. He spent three weeks with her, more time than any girl since Rosalyn. They became lovers, but after escorting her to a town, they separated.

    Rath met Dain, and instantly, he was curious about her. He likes happy women, and as most of us know, Dain is not a very pleasant woman. Rath began trying to figure her out, and slowly, the two became closer. After a (supposedly) passionate kiss (Threesome, come on guys, finish it up? :p) the two part for a few months, come together again in BoK2, then part ways for a full year.

    During his travels, Rath, who had his missing left arm replaced with a metal gun-arm, was able to use the Angel's Tear to regrow his arm. He also went on a revenge hunt with Doc to hunt down the people who murdered the Slayes, successfully, I might add.

    Also that year, the mysterious someone from his depressed days, Rislyn, meets Dain. The two woman, at first, have no idea they have something, or someone, in common. They travel together, and become closer, eventually becoming quite good friends.

    They part ways, and several months later, Rislyn and Rath run into each other again. She requests his help, he agrees, and the two begin a journey that leads them into trouble. While they travel, Rath, who hasn't seen or heard from Dain in over a year, and has no idea if she has any feelings for him, begins to fall for Rislyn.

    Ris, with her own troubled past, likes the rogue, and despite knowing how Dain truly feels about the man, she allows, and encourages a relationship to start. Her guilt, however, forces her to tell him the truth, and later, to leave him as she continues her journey.

    A note from Rislyn leads Rath to the town where Dain has just arrived, called there by Rislyn. Rath and Dain have a reunion of sorts, the truth coming out, causing Dain to lose her famous temper at both Rath and Rislyn. They start traveling to the Desert, where Rislyn is as Dain's insistence, to help her or hurt her, I am still not sure. Along the way, Dain and Rath finally admit their feelings for each other, despite Dain's anger at Rath.

    Now, before anyone gets upset, let me spoil the ending a bit. Rath loves Dain, and Rislyn, for all she is an impulsive twit, cares about her friends, and wants them together. After a very long, probably drawn out conversation, and no doubt, a few punches, possibly a battle arena worthy fight between the ladies, they calm down, forgive each other, and be friends again. In theory. I don't know, hasn't happened yet. :)

    What we do know, however, is that Rath will always choose Dain, isn't it nice to see love win against all odds?

    As for future plans with our favorite Rogue, Nevermore is open for possibilities. He would like to do a 1x1 with Dain, but would need to speak to that warriors creator, Paladin_Girl.

    Andeh's fault. Though, did forget to mention one thing >.<


    When asked, What was Rath's best fight, Andy replied that it would probably be a fight that hasnt happened yet, in Love of Revenge, but that Rath and Zyta had some pretty awesome battles.

    As for Rath's best moment overall, A yet to happen kiss in Threesome will probably take the cake, followed closely by Dain admiting to Rath that she loves him in Flirtatious Wanderings.

    I have a question? Since Rath will, hopefully, be getting back his real arm at the end of Threesome, does he still have the arm in Flirtatious Wanderings? If so, did his arm revert back to the gun-arm or something?

    In LoR Rath gives the arm to Doc and Doc turns it into a revolver that fires the same ballistimancy shells that the arm could fire. He lets Doc keep the infinite fire loader with the explosive rounds and tells him to make himself a gun (Though I've yet to see if Doc made this weapon yet). His arm in Flirt is the real one.

    I have not been keeping up with the recent RP's. Since Rath is, you know, one of my all time favorite characters, is there anything new added to his profile in the newer RP's he's been in? Maybe a new weapon or something to his bio?

    As far as I know, no knew weapons. In Flirt he and Dain took some steps in their relationship, and he gave her his crimson cloak. I'll text Andy and troll him to reply to this on his lunch, Matt.

    Well, the Bio is somewhat up to date. He gives the arm to Doc and Doc modified his old revolver Lover into the Midgardian Rose which fires normal rounds and ballistamancy shells. Rath himself has two real, working arms. He also has two new types of ballistamancy shells, railgun and implosion. He has a greater supply of all his ballistamancy shells as well. The pendent bracelet with gemstones cut like roses he had originally given Rosalyn was modified by the Gael and given to Dain. He also gave her his cloak and replaced it with a black one.

    Oh, and Doc also gave him the revolver Mary Lu, nicknamed the left hand of god. It has 12 chambers, twice any normal revolver, and fires special rounds crafted by Doc himself. The thing fires like a cannon with enough force to knock even large men backwards several feet.
