Name: Melys Grent Race: Forsaken Age: 16 (Before Death) 6 (After death) Appearance: Melys has rather white and pale skin with a tinge of purple in it. His mouldy green hair makes his face nearly imperceptible, although his glowing yellow eyes may see and be seen through it. Melys' forehead is adorned by a large gash he recieved after a run in with the scourge during life. Melys is of a rather average height for a forsaken standing at 6 Feet 6 Inches. He moves confidently with the air of a being in its prime, although on colder days his celerity is lessened. When fighting he wields dagger and sword with admirable skill. Occupation: Raider and former Honor Guard of The Marauders and former Thorn Elite of The Circle Of The Thorn Birthplace: Westfall  Personality
Melys is often distrustful and suspiscious towards all but his small circle of friends, though he is usually able to pick out those that pose him no threat. He is often straight to the point in his dealings. He can be quick to anger and has a sharp tongue for insults.
Melys is fiercely loyal to those he does trust and is willing to help them if the need arises, often going out of his way to help even if said help is not wanted. Melys can often be side-tracked by small things, but more often than not he is nudged back into reality by some sort of occurance.
Melys is gifted with the ability to think literally before he acts or speaks, though when he is angered he loses the want to stay on top of something and flings himself head-first into a quickly concocted (but not a very well thought out) plan. Although he may be seen as selfish at times he is as much of a giver as he is a taker and will give what is needed when it is needed (if he can afford it, that is).
While Melys is quick to anger he can be calmed down by a well-placed compliment or joke. Lately though, after the loss of his friend and the only link to his past, he has become more isolated from those around him, other than in times of need. He hides his feelings well but sometimes lets a word or two slip.  Background  Childhood and Early Teens
Melys was born in the 600th year, in autumn. The name given to him, he is no longer able to remember. He lived a peaceful life with his farming family but, in spite of that, grew up despising his kin and race. In his younger years he was shunned by his peers only because his leg was deformed at birth and he was confined to a chair with wheels fitted to it (He moved by using two long sticks to push himself along), replacing the time that he would have spent playing with friends studying books on history, geography, grammar and (secretly) swordplay. He soon became a youth with a quick wit and a sharp tongue, two attributes which he has kept in undeath. Melys had two siblings, both of which hold no part in his story.
When he begun school at a nearby chapel, where he was respected by the priests because of his handicap. He enjoyed school, though the questions were too easy for him, and fought diligently with his parents many a night when they wished for him to leave and become a farmhand. After being nearly out-argued by his parents he confined himself to his room where he could think. There he stayed for many nights without sleeping and eventually he thought of something. Melys argued that he could not become a farmhand because of his leg, his argument backfired and he was sent to Stormwind where priests were payed to work on morphing Melys' body into the shape it should have been. The priests made him a leg and put blessings of strength and fortitude on him.
Now Melys was fit for working, but the operations had their side effects. He now hated Humans and what the Alliance stood for, he despised his family and the whole of Westfall for changing who he was. He refused to work for his parents on their farm. Then, one night he left, taking much of his family's money, and ran to Stormwind. He found his way easily after having memorised the route when he was taken there before. He bought his passage up north to Lordaeron, where he worked for the rogues guild and was paid with training.
When the scourge attacked Melys stood no chance, he fell along with the rest of Lordaeron.  Undeath
When Melys died he did not join the scourge, instead he was bought back to life by the banshee Sylvanus Windrunner. After awaking as a forsaken he was rehabilitated and sent off to Deathknell. There he met a forsaken female called Sacré, after talking with her for a while the two discovered that they had known each other in life. Sacré had worked for the rogues guild of Lordaeron as a healer. Melys and Sacré explored Tirisfal together, learning and experiencing new things, they quickly developed a bond. They soon found a guild by the name of The Circle Of The Thorn. The ball was set rolling when Illdatch, master of The Circle Of The Thorn, left. Illdath's title was handed down to Rigamort, who left and passed it down to Anterbok, who left and passed it down to Vanth. When Vanth became master it was only him and Melys left, The Circle Of The Thorn was disbanded. Soon after The Circle Of The Thorn was ended, Sacré was slain. Melys went into a spiral of depression, he gave up on adventuring, he lay down his weapons and armour.
Time passed, Melys heard of Childrens week and, remembering his childhood, offered to look after an orphan. The little orc looked up to him and by the time Melys returned him, his work was done. Melys' ambitions had been rekindled and once more Melys set out.
Melys searched high and low, looked throughout Azeroth and sought audiences with shady characters. Melys gathered all the information he could on the guilds of the Horde. At long last Melys came upon a promising new guild, its members were weaker than him but that did not matter. He quickly found its leader, Kerrgon the Orcish Warrior, and asked for membership to The Marauders.
He settled into the guild quickly, making his way up through its ranks. As he did this he adventured with many Marauders, including Arquillia-a Forsaken Warlock, Nadaeion-a Troll Hunter, Cax- a Tauren Druid and Kerrgon himself, as well as many others.  The Marauders
Soon after Melys was recruited, he was called to a meeting of The Marauders, where he met many of his present friends. It was held in the Orcish city of Orgrimmar, in Grommash Hold. He was taught how the promoting process worked and the names and responsabilities of different ranks.
The Marauders had no specific Home or Meeting Place, though their valour was know throughout the Horde. Time passed, Melys was soon promoted to Honor Guard to the Mistress Arquillia Farest, a position which he coveted. And not too long after that the Warlord Kerrgon was gifted Kargathia Keep, to use as he saw fit just as Grom Hellscream had used before him.  A New Beginning
After having spent much time in The Marauders, and becoming rather attached to the guild, Melys is shocked when Kerrgon announces that he is to drink the blood of a pit lord. Melys, now in the Honor Guard position, disagrees with Kerrgon and as an Honor Guard's duty is to protect their charge, in this case Arquillia, how they see fit, he decides to resign in order to prevent himself from trying to turn Arquillia against his Warlord. Though doing this was hard for him, he felt it must be done, though he inteded to return to the position once everything had blown over.
When Kimpek, another Marauder, is named Honor Guard in his stead, he is furious, though takes care to hide it from others. Over the next few weeks, he feels a growing uncertainty about his abilities and begins to blame himself for all of the bad things that have occured during his life and death. Since the Forsaken are immortal, he forms a plan to rid the world of all the "atrocities" he believes he has caused. He decides to travel into the Caverns of Time, bypass the barrier placed within by the Bronze Dragonflight, and slay his past self before the forsaken can claim him. With Kabume's help, a skilled mage of The Marauders, he is able to accomplish the first half of his plan.
But when he arrives in Old Westfall, he comes across a flaw in his plan that he did not expect. Nozdormu himself awaits him and Melys is overcome by the ancient dragon's power. Nozdormu, not wishing to harm the time-stream, though at the same time feeling pity for the delirious Forsaken, wipes Melys' mind of all but his most important memories and sends him back to Azeroth.
