    Character Information

    Personality: This first paragraph is a note on Mei. She views things like sex and nudity much more liberally than a normal person. She would fit right in in a nudist camp. Threads with her will probably contain at least some nudity. Because of that, I will not be putting all of her threads in the mature board. So if you don't want your character to deal with that, don't RP with Mei. Now onto Mei's accent. Mei has a very thick accent, and it occasionally makes it hard for people to understand her. I will provide a list at the end of the app of certain words so readers can get a feel of how she sounds.

    Mei is more talkative than most anyone else in the Laozhu tribe. That's not saying much, but she is. Her voice won't carry far, but she speaks loud enough so that anyone she wishes to hear will. She is one of the few in her tribe that can speak Arcadian, thanks to being taught by an injured peddler that stayed with the tribe until he was healed. Her Arcadian is broken, and she will omit or add small words occasionally. For example, she might say "I am going to store" or "I am of sleep now." Mei usually asks if what she says is the right thing after finishing a particularly thoughtful sentence. She does have a habit of mixing up words, and her heavy accent doesn't help people understand her. When she does mess up or has to explain more than twice, she gets frustrated and remains quiet. Mei can not read nor write in Arcadian.

    Mei calls anyone not of the Laozhu or tribes like hers "barbarians." She says they speak too much and hide their bodies behind too many clothes. Only in winter, to those of mountains, and to those of snow and ice does she not give the last criticism to. Mei calls anyone who wants to stay in one place for too long "staysick." She finds most of their food too bland for her taste, and so she usually cooks her own meals. There is a saying about the Laozhu that says they eat rocks and shells—but they put enough spices on them to make it taste amazing. And they do eat the shells of crabs and other shellfish they find. They have incredibly strong teeth because of it. Mei is infatuated with "barbarian sweets," and she will gorge out on them whenever she gets a chance.

    Although Mei is the daughter of a farmer for her people, she does not want to do that. She does not want to become a warrior either, but she does carry a sword for self-defense against wild animals and barbarians. She would rather travel and see places the Laozhu have not and will probably not. She likes the sights and sounds of barbarian culture like someone might admire an animal in a cage.

    Character Background: Meifeng Baozhai is the youngest of eight children. She has three brothers and four sisters. She does not see her sisters often, due to them being married off into other tribes. Her brothers, except for one, are all farmers like their father and mother. Mei was always an odd child. She had an allergy to the fertilizer her clan used, so she was not allowed to go into the fields. She has not grown out of the allergy either. Her clan values farmers the most, as they provide food. Hunters are a rung lower, and warriors are the bottom of the totem pole. They might keep the farmers safe, but those whose express purpose is to kill are not looked at in a favorable light.

    Mei always had looked up to her older brother, Caomeng, who was the eldest in the family. He is the only one who is not a farmer. Mei watched Caomeng and the Laozhu become more and more distant. He did not agree with many of the tribe's customs, and so he left abruptly. He tried to take the young Mei with him, but she said she wanted to stay with her mother and father. Caomeng reportedly formed his own tribe across the sea in the land of forests and magic. Mei recently heard rumors that Caomeng had been killed, and his tribe was destroyed. Her father became worried about Mei, as she became more and more distracted over time. So he decided to have her be married to someone within the tribe, as he felt that having a child and someone to care for would be best for her mind. The choosing is said to happen soon...

    Combat

    Equipment:
    Sword: Mei carries a sword with her when not within the confines of the Laozhu's settlements. It is odd for a sword, as it is like the "katana" in that it is thin and shorter than most swords. But it is also like a broadsword, in that it is straight and has two edges forming into a point. It is called a "Jian."

    Skills: Mei is a fantastic cook, but few kettlewives aren't. She can fight off a rabid dog with her sword, but anything larger would be a problem. Mei also has great knowledge on weather, animals, and herbology.

    Notes

    On the Laozhu and the Yanyu:
    The Laozhu are a nomadic tribe of the Yanyu people. The Laozhu are not a particularly old tribe. They have been traveling for about 300 years now from when they split off from another tribe. The Yanyu are known for their colorful hair and tanned skin. A true-blooded Yanyu will not have brown or black hair. Normal hair colors such as red or blond will be more vibrant. The Yanyu have existed alongside the nations, but they did not allow themselves to be absorbed within any border. There are Yanyu within all four nations, although they are less plentiful in Zakat. Cieria is where the Yanyu seem to be concentrated. They have their own language and writing system full of only symbols. The Yanyu are known for their quietness, which they "wear like an armor." A good example of how they say little is that in common, one might say to a woman "You are beautiful." A Yanyu will just say "Beautiful." They view words as something sacred, as they come from the heart. A Yanyu will usually only speak a lot in front of family or a lover.

    The Yanyu also view sex and nudity far differently than the rest of the world. The Yanyu view the body as more of a vessel. The body is not sacred, but what comes from what is stored inside (words, music, etc.) is. Thus, sex is not particularly seen as something taboo or to be done behind closed doors. That isn't to say that they perform orgies in the street, but when someone is interrupted in the middle of sex, it's more like realizing you had the wrong office. Men and women will both go shirtless in hot months, and if it gets too hot, then they will go completely nude. What's more, the Yanyu do not have separate baths and the like for men and women. During the summer months, it's not uncommon for an entire tribe to bathe outside during a rainstorm.
    Laozhu Terminology:
    The Laozhu have a few words that have made it to Common.
    • Abari: One who will take two wheat seeds, pay for one now, and pay for the second later when they have the money from the first harvest. Not an insult, but not a good term to call someone.
      Andara: The act of chewing on a stalk of wheat as you farm. Seen as a sign of a good harvest, as you have some to spare for idle chewing. It is used as a compliment to show they have excess, but are not flaunting it.
      Bonshu: Refers to a story of a three-legged dog named as such. A nickname for someone who will always stumble, but always continue on.
    • Kettlewives: The women who will stand around the community kettles and cook meals for the tribe. There are usually no less than six and no more than twenty-five.
    • Staysick: What Yanyu call people who wish to stay in one spot. They claim that the lack of a want to travel is a sickness, and so it must be cured.
    Mei's Accent:
    Mei has a particularly thick accent. Suyin (the language of the Yanyu) requires a rather thick accent to speak it properly.
    Let's take the sentence "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog." There are no soft "e" or "i" sounds in Suyin. Where there would a soft "e" or "i," there is only the hard "e" sound. So the words "the" and "quick" would be pronounced "thee" and "queek." The word "brown" would have more emphasis on "OW," and "fox" would sound more like "fawx." The soft "u" sound in Suyin sounds like "ah." Because the "e" is silent, it is not changed. The soft "a" is only used in words that start with a vowel, such as in words like "oval." The hard "a" is extended slightly, as is the "ee" sound at the end of "lazy." So in the end, Mei would say the original sentence like "Thee queek brOWn fawx jahmped ohveer thee lay-zee dawg." Add in how she might forget words, and it would probably sound like "Queek brOWn fawx jahmped ohveer layzee dawg."
