Sharqkan is what many would perceive to be an aloof attention whore. He attempts to act as though he is the coolest person in the room despite the fact that he seemingly goes out of his way to showcase that it is unnatural. He always has some witty line for any occasion and he often speaks in an obviously forced boisterous voice. He is in truth very humble, which is hard for him to balance with his need to pretend to be arrogant. Often allowing others to garner the spotlight or earn the credit where they gained it. Though it is clear that he tries to frame these accomplishments in a way to where he at the very least 'helped'.
He showcases a level of confidence that isn't normal, often foolishly rushing headstrong into dire situations so long as it provides him with a good story he can regale his contemporaries with at a later date. This recklessness is dangerous as it is paired with his inability to sate his curiosity, meaning he is likely to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. It is done due to the fact that he does not fear death. He feels as though some of the best stories that a person can tell, can only be told when your life has come to it's end. In this way, he likes to make even the most minor of encounters seem like life or death situations, and acts accordingly.
As a neko, he leans into the more aggressive and playful sides of their personalities, though can be lazy whenever he is at a party. Since he wants to lay down and tell stories about all of his great adventures, embellishing all the while. History:
Born an orphan on the streets of Newdale, Sharqkan spent most of his youth working as the eyes of some shadowy figures that operated there. He learned how to steal and use magic to obscure himself, but was never satisfied wit his lot in life. He never allowed himself to become distracted by the wealth he made and found enjoyment only in hearing the tales people told of his exploits. The secretive nature of Newdale never allowed the young Neko to fully bask in the limelight of his accomplishments, however. Which ultimately forced him to seek a life in a place where he'd garner the praise and idolization he felt he was owed.
When he became the age of thirteen he set out to garner this illusive fame, so that he could feel as though he had value within himself. This led him to eventually join up with the Golden Titans after spending a number of years doing odd jobs for various merchants and traders within The Common Realm, often hiding his ears since he had heard that there used to be people in the world that captured his kind as slaves and pets. It was not until he was officially allowed to join the ranks of the Golden Titans that he fully embraced having his identity showcased. For he felt if he was to be famous, he wanted nothing about himself to be a secret.Likes:
He wants to become a world renown adventurer and knows that the best way to go about such a lofty goal is to merely achieve a spot within the Guardian Knights. He has no qualms taking even the most ridiculously boring or mundane tasks if it aids him in spreading his name through the masses. Key Fear/Adversary:
His biggest fear is dying in obscurity. He wants to make sure that if he ever dies, it will be something worthy of making a ballad or song about. Therefore, if he is ever in a situation where he might die, he will flee if he doesn't feel as though his death would warrant an epic tale. This can cause some to think him a coward, though it isn't the case.
