Personal Life Information:
Other:8/15/2011 #1 Report
Name: Gwydion Geraint Gwener
Species: Human With A Funny Voice (see Other)
Appearance: A little shorter than average. Long ginger hair, in a ponytail. Blue eyes. Slightly tanned. Normally seen in his blue-and-gold uniform.
Personality: Gwydion is friendly, but has a short temper, and is normally tactless (you don't learn tact standing in the rain around a stone circle).
Personal Life Information: Was born and raised in Llamedos, and thus has a thick Llamedese accent. Used to play the harp at druidic meetings. Was informed he was the eighth song of an eighth son, and left for Ankh-Morpork at 13 to learn wizardry.
He was a pretty good wizard, but he was kicked out when an attempt at the Ritual of AshkEnte went disastrously wrong. He can no longer do magic. He rented a house in Dolly Sisters, got a job at the Central Post Office, and now he's a postman.
Other: The failed ritual gave him a strange voice. It's deep and echo-ey, and shall be written "like this." He can make it very commanding: "LIKE THIS."8/16/2011 #2 Report
Name: Jocasta Wiggs
Appearance: Very short brown hair and grey eyes. Wears Assassin's black, with trousers and knee boots.
Personality: Reasonable, usually easy-going and very polite no matter what the difference in class. She treats everyone as if she expects them to be as reasonable as herself. Except for vampires-- she's terrified of them thanks to childhood trauma.
Personal Life Information: Daughter of a famous Assassin. Attends the Assassin's Guild School after which she intends to follow in her father's footsteps.
Other: Canon character from Night Watch8/23/2011 . Edited 10/27/2011 #3 Report
Name: Eric. (He has a variety of false surnames, mostly parodying names of a certain ethnic stereotype...with a twist! For example, O'Really, O'Leery, O'Flattery, O'Done Again e.t.c e.t.c So it's probably best to stick with Eric. No relation to the book of the same name.)
Appearance: A tall and lanky teenager with a slender frame bordering on skinny, bright red hair, pale skin and hazel eyes. Usually found wearing standard Assassin gear, and a black hat which seems to have something different on it each time you see him. Past examples include small, furry animals and cups of tea that he put up there for later.
Personality: Eccentric is probably the best word to describe Eric - he's certainly charming, when you get around the fact that he seems to appear at the most inconvenient times, and his rather warped sense of morals can be very useful if there's a job to be done. He's not evil in the slightest, he just does understand the fundamental difference between right and wrong. He's also very slightly mad, which just puts the olive in his twisted martini of a mind. Um...to coin a phrase? To sum it up - he's unpredictable, untrustworthy but a whole lot of fun to be around.
Personal Life Information: Eric likes to alter the story. Sometimes he'll claim that his parents moved to Pseudopolis to build pyramids of jam, sometimes he'll say that he has a brother who's married a marmoset. He doesn't expect anyone to believe these stories, but he'll be very offended if you don't at least pretend to.
Other: In training at the Assassin's Guild.8/30/2011 #4 Report
Name: Vitaly Dushenin von Uberwald
Appearance: 5'4", caught somewhere between baby fat and gangly teen stages. Curly brown hair and yellow eyes, with a long snubby nose. Overlarge canines, tough pointed nails and a line of fur running down his spine. He cannot transform his ears when he returns to human form, or remove his tail.
Personality: Sometimes petulant and entitled, but determined and well-meaning. Vitaly thrives on approval. He's young for his age, but always trying to seem more grown up. At this he fails rather endearingly.
Personal Life Information: Youngest in a titled family. His eldest brother left home, so Vitaly is now the sole male heir. He came to A-M to get an education, and lives with an old school chum of his parents who isn't around much, and tutors.
Vitaly's health was poor early in life, which affected his morphing abilities: he retains wolfish characteristics all month long even as a biped, full transformation is unreliable, and his wolf form is weaker than average. He's understandably sensitive about this, and has been known to introduce himself by snapping "I was ill as a child!" at curious strangers fascinated by his furry bits.
Um. That came out wrong.
Other: Vitaly's Morporkian is good, but sometimes his grammar is a bit awkward. He has a horror of veggies and overcooked meat, but loves taffy, anything with cinnamon, and hot drinks.9/23/2011 #6 Report
Name: Blut von Wölfen
Species: Official Screw-up (see Background)
Appearance: Short black shiny hair, an imposing 6'2. Overlarge canines, slightly pointed ears. Red eyes.
Personality: Blut is normally rather depressed, due to both halves of him/her hating the other. However, get him/her happy and s/he's your best buddy.
Profession: Fairly Important Assassin
Background: Blut was born a vampire, and has been b-total since. However, when 11, s/he was attacked by a vampire-hating werewolf and converted. She is now both vampire and werewolf - b-totalism means s/he doesn't get all the bloodlust, but s/he still needs to feed her werewolf side every full moon.
Blut came to Ankh-Morpork when her parents told him/her to start earning, and s/he decided to become ambiguous-gender to distract people from the 'werewolf-vampire-depressed' thing.
Other: The whole ambiguous-thing sort of demands Blut is bisexual. Plus, she wasn't that picky before the werewolf-bite. His/her blood replacement is daggers, and s/he carries several just to feel comfortable.10/16/2011 #7 Report
Name: Spyra Mells
Appearance: A slim girl just below average height with short, curly, dark brown hair, blue eyes and freckles. Usually found wearing standard Watch gear.
Personality: Spyra's an outgoing and amiable person, and is in fact very easy to get along with. This makes her job just that little bit more difficult, as she tends to sympathise somewhat with whoever's committed the crime. It's a well-known fact that wherever Spyra is, so are the criminals, yet she's got a very low arrest rate. Because of this she's become an unintentional honey trap - whoever's on duty with her will follow at a distance, wait until a criminal is spotted and shadow Spyra until she inevitably engages them in conversation. At that point they will arrest them, usually much to Spyra's irritation (we were having a good conversation there!). It's not that Spyra doesn't have a good sense of righ and wrong, she does, it's just that she dislikes conflict, and is almost too esy to get along withsh
Personal Life Information: Grew up on the outskirts of Ankh-Morpork, and ventured inside just to see what it was like. She planned it as a day trip, but Ankh-Morpork being what it is, within half an hour she found that she'd unwittingly rente a flat, and was on her way to find herself a job. In her usual easygoing manner she decided she'd go along with it and see what happened - she's been there six years now.

Name: Galena Chatterjee
Appearance: Underfed and short, with thick wavy black hair that reaches to her knees, and which she wears in braids (sometimes one, sometimes two). Dark tan skin and brown eyes, with fierce eyebrows. Galena wears a white dress most of the time, with no shoes or socks, and a long necklace of glass beads.
Personality: Defiant and full of suppressed anger, with a determination to take what seems out of her reach.
Personal Life Information: Parents came from Bhangbhangduc to open a traders' shop. Galena grew up in the shadow of Unseen University, and has been fascinated with magic and the power to change the world all her life.
Other: Theme song: "Be My Sacrifice" - Hatsune Miku10/27/2011 #9 Report
Name: Raph (last name unknown, pronounced Raff).
Appearance: A small, skinny boy with skin that would be pale were it not so dirty, messy, long-ish brown hair and bright blue eyes. Usually found wearing whatever clothes he can find, and no shoes.
Personality: Cheeky and talkative, Raph almost always has a grin on his face. He's happy to help anyone with anything should it get him any money, but is often too clever for his own good, doing himself out of a deal by negotiating too hard. He's a born businessman, but rather too ambitious - after all, there are plenty of other street urchins that can be hired to carry crates. He occasionally lurks outside of the Post Office to see if he can nick any interesting letters, making him an enemy of Postal Workers all around - some of them have nicknamed him the "terrier", much to his disgust. Because of this he doesn't stay there nearly as often as he might like, and has turned his hand to pick-pocketing, even going so far as to attempt to acquire a temporary licence from the Thieves' Guild. They turned him away, but asked him to come back later - hope springs eternal, after all.
Personal Life History: Buggered if he knows! For as long as he can remember he's been on the streets, and earning money in whatever way he can.10/27/2011 #10 Report
Awesome, thanks - I thought he might be someone for Galena to talk to. :D10/27/2011 #12 Report
Good idea! I feel a bit bad for her now, for some reason. o_o10/27/2011 #13 Report
Name: Tatsel du Catfield
Age: Physically early twenties
Appearance: Tatsel is 6' with wavy light-blond hair and gray-blue eyes. He wears intricate but all-black clothes, and carries a double bass around with him that is more often used for other things than playing (such as hitting people with or knocking fruit down from trees).
Personality: Excitable, animated and effusive. Tatsel is a real go-getter who almost always leaps before he looks and thus gets himself into trouble more often than he might care to have others point out. He can be stubborn and arrogant, and very vain for someone who can't see himself in a mirror.
Tatsel doesn't pick up on things too quickly; this may be because Morporkian is not his strong suit, or it may be because he is simply rather dim. (A combination of those two is most likely the case, as anyone who has known him for more than a few weeks will say.)
Personal Life Information: Born several hundred years ago in Quirm to a noble family, Tatsel ran away from home to join the theater. They wouldn't have him, for an obvious reason listed below, so instead he took up playing music in the trendy style With Rocks In. Eventually every band he tried to join got annoyed with him and kicked him out. And thus he ended up in Ankh-Morpork, looking for another band. Again.
Other: He likes to use his instrument case as an impromptu coffin when he can't find anywhere to sleep.
Also, Tatsel cannot speak.10/27/2011 #14 Report
Name: Uriah Ffoulkes
Appearance: 5'10", with glasses, a mocha complexion and longish dark hair. Eyes change from green-gray to violent orange (see below). Usually dressed in light-colored corduroy suits and boots.
Personality: Easygoing and clever in a nerdy, bookwormish way. His personality, that is.
Personal Life Information: Well-to-do scholar from an old-money family. He amuses himself by writing the occasional book and doing the occasional lecture; his specialty is necromancy.
Other: That speciality backfired when he snuck into a highly classified, quite forbidden zombie-creating ritual and ended up in the midst of the circle at the moment of summoning a soul; Uriah got away safely, but with one very angry, very unpleasant soul stuck inside his head.
He calls it Leopold.10/28/2011 #16 Report

What gender do you generally accept Blut as, people? I'd be interested to know.10/29/2011 #20 Report
I generally assume most gender-unspecified characters are female for some reason-- but the height makes me think male. Uh... female, I guess.10/31/2011 #22 Report
So do I. So now I might change it. Or not....
Hell, or maybe Blut was born like that. God, I hope not.10/31/2011 #23 Report
So it was male originally? -_- Oops.
Er... oh dear. I hope not, too. That'd be traumatic.10/31/2011 #24 Report
Name: Accident "Acci" Noone
Age: 15, but looks a few years older than that
Species: HumanAppearence: Tall and slim. She has long dark hair and green eyes. She has three noticable scars (two on her face and one on her neck). Acci is not exactly pretty, but not ugly either.
Appearence: Tall for her age, and thin from not eating very much. Acci has long, messy dark hair and green eyes. She has various scars from being in fights (this happens quite a lot) and a slight limp.
Personality: Dishonest, with no moral-compass to speak of. Still, she has been known to show some flashes of altruism and loyalty. Mostly though, she is sarcastic, pessimistic, and cynical. She is very clever and cunning, but gets angry easily.
Person Life Information: Acci was the "accident" of a seamstress, and grew up in the Shades, more or less independantly. She lives in abandonned attics. An outcast from society, she gets very touchy if anyone mentions her mother.12/12/2011 #25 Report
@Fanless: Actually, I tend to think of Blut as female. It's rare you find a guy who gets pissed off that easily.
