Mental characteristics

Personal history

Philomena came from a small village far from the coast. As a child, she would often sing nonsensically and became inspired to expand her talents when she saw several people give a man playing on the street some coins. As Philomena matured, she found herself drawn to the thrill of a fight, so she signed up for the Tyrian navy. In her first battle, she was said to slice a particularly unruly pirate in half with a standard-issue sword. When she isn't dispatching orders, she would take to the decks at night and sing with the ukelele she was gifted to by the performer she was inspired by in her youth. Eventually, her prowess in combat and ability to turn the tide of morale won the admiration of the Black Parrot Privateers.


Philomena signed up for the navy straight upon turning 18.

The layout of the character looks promising. I like the clashing contrast between raising my heart for the battle with rather jolly sounds of the ukulele. XD   I'd love to read more about her character and the adventures she had.

Introducing my challenge entry, with my cat as the main character and visitor to the tavern.

Good start but is still a little short now :) Liking the ukelele for a pirate though :)!

Feel free to check out my latest challenge article the Avaronian Empire if you want to see what I am up to!

We could really use some narration to add to the descriptions that you have. And perhaps a picture

As always, it would be appreciated if you would stop by my challenge article The Storm Giant Empire and leave some feedback.   If you are looking for things to read from summer camp there is also my Summer Camp 2022 Reading Challenge.. Happy worldbuilding.

Yeah, I know about that. It's just that for whatever reason, the picture I uploaded won't show up.
