NPCing Ronith
Personality-wise, Ronith is dominated by traditional elven arrogance. In his case, in manifests itself in terms of a) How much more morally righteous Ronith is than everyone else he encounters, and b) His fighting prowess. He tends to run either hot or cold, cold more often than not. As a result, he appears cold, arrogant, and aloof to those around him- the picture of a detached, professional soldier. Whereas said soldier would be dismissive and insulting of a rookie or wet-behind-the-ears kid, Ronith treats everyone that way as it is implicitly assumed that they cannot compare to either his code of ethics or experience/skill on the battle field.

In combat, Ronith will almost always close to melee distance, so that he might take best advantage of his swordsmanship and agility. However, the Cyber-Knight always tactically assesses the situation, and isn't shy about barking orders to his teammates so as to control the fight.

Just because he thinks it, though, doesn't mean Ronith is in fact without flaws. He generally does a good job of living by the Cyber-Knight code, but his alcoholism was a serious character defect that was only recently corrected. He also maintains a small collection of swords- he tells himself it is in case he ever needs one of them again, but in reality it is more for vanity's sake than anything else (though he'd die before admitting such).

Ronith's Background (Reposted)

Postby Ronith » Fri Sep 25, 2009 2:15 pm

Perhaps 30 years ago, Odin and the forces of Asgard were under attack by the frost giants. This latest raid had been more successful than those in recent years, and the defenders of Asgard were hard pressed. Many of the Gods themselves were absent at the time, leaving Odin and many of his warriors to fend for themselves.
Meanwhile, on earth, a lone cyber-knight patrolled the wilds of northern Minnesota. There had been reports from Lazlo of recent Xiticx expansion in the area, and he had been sent to investigate. Unfortunately, he ventured a little too close to one of the major ley lines running near Tolkeen, and was caught in a ley line storm. This storm was particularly violent, and the knight was swept into a dimensional rift….
…Only to be deposited onto Bifrost, the mythical bridge connecting Asgard with the mortal realms. At the time, Heimdall, the guardian of the bridge, was hard pressed by a number of frost giants, attempting to gain the bridge so they could summon reinforcements, in the form of their lesser kin. The cyber-knight was disoriented, but when he saw the human-like figure fighting off a horde of monsters he knew which side he belonged on. Without hesitation he threw himself into the battle, and distinguished himself that day with many deeds of valor.
Unfortunately, he was a mortal caught in a realm of Gods. He fell in battle, killed by a particularly nasty Frost Giant. However, the Knight helped Heimdall buy enough time for Valkyrie reinforcements to arrive and sweep the giants from the bridge. Eventually, Thor and the other Gods made their way back to Asgard, and the giants were routed.
Heimdall, who had been impressed by the Knight’s bravery and valor against such overwhelming odds, mentioned the battle to Odin. The Knight had been human, yet completely unconnected to the Norse Gods or Asgard. Despite this, he laid down his life in defense of the realm. Odin thought that such traits had vanished to the point of extinction in humanity, yet from Heimdall’s account the warrior was too well equipped and too well trained to have been an isolated case. Using his mystical sight, Odin traced the rift the Cyber-Knight had used back to Midgard, but there lost the trail in the woods of Northern Minnesota.
Odin wished to learn more about this strange knight, and to seek out others if they existed. A group of such warriors would make powerful minions if they could be turned to worship of the Norse. However, neither Odin nor the other Gods wished to travel the Earth. Between Loki, the giants, and the ever-looming threat of Ragnarok, finding this knightly order was a secondary priority. Nonetheless, Odin wished to sent a scout of sorts to the planet, to find out what he could learn of these Knights. His own warriors were needed to defend Asgard, and his Dwarves were not particularly suited to such an undertaking. That left the elves.
Odin spoke with the elven leader, who agreed to send one of his strongest fighters to Midgard. They rifted him to Minnesota, with instructions that he locate this order of knights, and learn as much of them as he may.
For two years, the warrior (named Intith) traveled North America. He learned early-on to avoid the Coalition territories, and ended up as one of countless adventurers traveling the American west. The elven warrior had magical weapons of great power, gifts from Odin, and used them to fight evil wherever he encountered it. Time and again, Intith would enter a town, face overwhelming odds at the hands of the local ruler and his minions, but somehow emerge victorious. As he ventured farther west, he began to hear rumors about these Cyber-Knights. After another year in “no-man’s land”, he actually met one.
The two happened to meet up on their way to a town in Colorado, one that was ruled by an evil mage and his demonic minions. They teamed up, and beat the mage handily. Both were impressed by the other’s prowess, and the cyber-knight had heard rumors of the great elven warrior who traveled the west fighting the forces of darkness. When Intith mentioned his mission, the Cyber-Knight offered to take him north to a town that openly embraced the order and offered sanctuary to all of the Knights. Incidentally, this town was located fairly close to one of the Cyber-Knight’s traning monasteries.
As it turns out this town had a fairly substantial (lower) elf population. Some of these elves had even become Cyber-Knights, and after some adventuring had returned to act as the defense/police force for the town. One of these Knights was named Delbrick. A cyber-knight of some experience, he had neither the battle prowess nor the moral fortitude to make much of a name for himself, and in fact some of the leaders of the Cyber-Knight order (Lord Coake included) were perfectly happy to keep Delbrick close to home and out of any trouble that might cause him to embarrass himself (and the order).
When Intith arrived, he was welcomed as a champion of light and a kindred spirit to most of the Cyber-Knights. Although they did not share any secrets with him, Intith went on many adventures with the Knights, doing good wherever they went. Intith’s strength, and inner nobility, raised him as a shining example of elven kind, and some (the most gullible ones, anyway) began to wholeheartedly believe his claim that the “lesser” elves were all creations of his kind.
Delbrick was not one of these. On Intith’s arrival, he had taken an instant (if slight) dislike to the high elf, and these feelings only grew over time. Intith’s assertions on the creation of “lesser” elves, indeed, even the term “lesser” reeked of arrogance to Delbrick’s ears. Over time, Delbrick became more and more suspicious. He viewed the elf’s weapons with jealousy, and convinced himself more and more that without them, Intith would not be a tenth the warrior that he is. The good deeds Intith did just made things worse. Delbrick came to view him as an imposter, a wolf in sheep’s clothing who was attempting to subvert both the townspeople and the Cyber-Knight order. The pleasant façade and the moral code were just disguises. Delbrick’s feelings on the matter blossomed into outright, seething hatred when Intith caught the eye of one of the elven women of the town. A woman who, incidentally, Delbrick had been eying for some time, but who thus far had flat-out refused his advances.
Months passed. Slowly at first, love bloomed between Intith and the elven woman. Intith and the Cyber-Knights had brought peace to the region. While Intith had learned all he needed to about the Knights (and just about all he could), he was putting off leaving because, for the first time in his life, he was completely happy.
Sadly, it didn’t last.
The jealousy and hatred that had taken root in Delbrick’s heart finally took over his mind. He was convinced that if he could kill Intith, he could replace him. He could take Intith’s weapons, and do as good… no, a better job fighting evil. He could win over the woman of his dreams, and everything would be perfect. So, that night, he struck. Not by force of arms, for he knew he would be bested easily by the champion, but by poison in his food. Intith would never suspect a thing.
And he didn’t. Delbrick managed to slip the most lethal poison he could find into Intith’s food, hoping that it would be enough to take down a supernatural being. But when Intith lasted the entire night without ill effects, Delbrick began to panic. What if it didn’t work? This was the strongest poison he knew, there was no other way to eliminate his enemy!
Ruled by fear, he followed Intith to the home he shared with his elven lover, and waited outside. For a good couple hours he fought with himself, having no idea if the poison was working. Finally, he decided to go inside, just to see what condition Intith was in.
As it turned out, the poison had affected Intith, and quite severely at that. He was being violently ill for the third time that night when Delbrick broke in. Initially confused, Intith realized both the source of his strange illness and Delbrick’s intentions when he summoned two psi-swords and attacked. Delbrick saw the poison had greatly weakened his enemy, but had not killed him. Afraid that Intith would recover, Delbrick decided to press his advantage immediately.
Intith fought back, and despite what Delbrick thought about his weapons Intith was by far the better fighter. However, the poison had greatly weakened him, and with no weapons or armor to speak of at hand, Intith was in trouble. Nonetheless, the pair fought for some time, trading blows for what seemed like hours but was in fact mere minutes. Intith’s lover was awakened early on by the noise, and when she entered the room to investigate, Intith yelled at her to get the knights immediately, and took a sword in the shoulder for his troubles. She fled the building, screaming for the patrol, or someone, to help her, that Intith was being murdered.
The battle raged on. Intith struggled mightily, but between the poison and his wounds he could barely stand. The end came when Delbrick slammed first one, then both his psi-swords into Intith’s chest, and the high elf collapsed. Delbrick did not kill him, however. Not yet. He wanted to savor his victory. He dispelled his psi-swords, and went into the other room to fetch Intith’s weapons chest. After Intith refused to open it, Delbrick smashed the lock (and most of the chest) to pieces. Among his other magical gifts from Asgard, there was Intith’s mighty sword, with which he had slain countless monsters and other minions of evil. Delbrick thought there would be a sort of poetic justice in slaying the high elf with his own sword, a sort of “passing the torch” ceremony. He picked up the sword, and raised it to strike…
It was then that the rune weapon of Asgard, reacting to the touch of an evil man, burned Delbrick’s hand clean off. The sword clattered to the ground, even as Delbrick stared in horror and the charred remains of his wrist. It was then that the Cyber-Knight patrol found them. Delbrick fled with his few weapons, stole a hovercycle from a visiting traveler, and vanished, to this day wondering how things could have gone so very wrong.
Intith was less fortunate. Although he was spared the death blow from his own sword, the poison and the many wounds Delbrick had inflicted upon him were adding up. He could feel his end coming, and knew that the Cyber-Knight healers would never be able to save him. He beckoned to his lover, whispered his final words of love to her, and told her he would return as soon as he was able. Then he activated the amulet Odin had given him. The one that would teleport him and his gear back to Asgard.
With that, he disappeared. By the time the elves in Asgard found him, he was unconscious. They treated him, and healed his wounds, but somehow the poison resisted, and continued to attack Intith’s system. All manner of spells, potions, and even divine intervention from Odin himself were tried, but Intith remained in a coma, and has continued to do so to this day.
Two weeks later, Intith’s lover (Viltra) found out she was pregnant. Months later, Ronith was born.

Ronith grew up in the elven community in the Cyber-Knight town. Although he was technically a half-breed, he took very strongly after his father. By the time he was an adult, the resemblance between the two was uncanny. Ronith was also surrounded by stories of his father growing up, and this prompted him to enter the Cyber-Knight order at the earliest age he could. He was determined to become a warrior, and to fight evil. The stories of his father had left him with iron clad principles, and a determination never, ever, to give in to evil, even a little.
After he became a full Cyber-Knight, he left home. He traveled east for weeks, fighting evil as best a lone, novice Cyber-Knight could. Like his father, he avoided the Coalition territories, but otherwise went wherever there was need. The Tolkeen conflict, and the ensuing split in the Cyber-Knights, was one of the worst experiences of his life.
Once, in the magic zone, he was attacked by an elf wearing old, battered cyber-knight armor, and with a cybernetic right hand. The guy had clearly lost it, but he was a tough opponent and Ronith barely escaped alive. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the man must have been Delbrick, and so Ronith decided to track him. This is what has brought him to MercTown.

Personality:
Ronith is cold. He is a good man, but there is an emptiness inside of him. He knows little of his heritage, or of his father beyond what the Cyber-Knights told him. He is familiar with the legends of the Norse Gods, and hopes one day to travel to Asgard to find some answers. In the meantime, he travels North America, righting wrongs and believing in a strict adherence to the Cyber-Knight code of ethics. Deviations in others can be tolerated, but only in non-knights. Even then, a Cyber-Knight should always stand up as an example for others, for the strength that comes from principles. He has a tendency to look down on those not as good as himself, and this superiority complex has gotten him in trouble on several occasions. Still, he can handle himself, and views every lesser opponent he beats as someone who just learned a valuable lesson. Everyone else that does not measure up to his strict moral standards is merely waiting for one.
