Before posting make sure you read/re-read the forum rules  here.  

I'm not too good at these things, but I think this could turn out to be interesting. I've started off with a quite easy one, so have a go.  Oh, and don't forget to add your own after answering.  


I first appeared in Shadow of a Dark Queen;
I travelled the green sea, with a pack not much better than fleas;
Knight, Swordsmaster, Captain are some of the titles I’ve been given;
Helping others is part of my living


Who am I?

You are Owen Greylock.

I came from a land far away,
Many stories have I told;
Of false histories and peoples,
One thing is certain, I am old.

Who am I?

You are Macros the Black.

Now who am I?

I serve to those who pay
or wish a universal account.
from wherever one finds a door,
I can be found.

You're Honest John  

Ok, let's see...

I've travelled far and wide,
My hair has the color of wine,
My loved one has the color of spring,
my son's colors are Divine.

You are Ishap.

That was too easy. ha! ha!


Who am I?

Living in the darkness,
For thousands of years,
Waiting for my master,
And the day when he appears.

I suppose there are probably multiple answers for this. Oh well...

Spoiler: show
actually i meant tomas's dragon, but as i said, multiple answers.


The answer to the riddle.

Sidi/Varen

We've had the same wife,
Between us there is much strife,
One of us must lose our life,
I'll carry this blood debt to the end of my days

Are you Ashen Shugar and Draken Korin? I'm not too sure, but I think so.


Who am I?

Magician's companion,
Apprentice's friend,
Lesser than my great cousins,
I have hands that can rend.

EDIT: No suli, it's not Pug. But I'll answer yours anyway- Jimmy The Hand.

Is it Pug?

Quick as a rabbit
Sly as fox
Stealing is a habbit
My heritage is lost

Mine is pretty easy.

Perhaps you are Dolgan of the dwarves

I have been many people,
A soldier, a slave and a free man,
I appear where i want, and know much,
Loyal forever to my mistress.

Kevin? again? I dunno, lemme know if I'm wrong and just disregard my post.

Who am I?

Great knowledge do I wield,
Of Present, Future and Past,
I move from body to body,
I now reside in body who's life has passed.

I know the Bitter Sea better than you
Raided every ship that sails her
I don't like honest work
Because it always goes wrong

Served a father and his fruit
Grim and hard have faded to love
Breaking tradition is what I've been bid
Seen it through to my end is what I did

My master is my terror,
My rescuer is my lover,

Kamlio

To make it abit harder I'm not going to tell you what it is I'm describing. Unless of course, an admin tells otherwise

Tall of stature
Full of knowledge
I will not fall
into faithless hands

Kieli was my former name
and vengeneance is my game

Talon of the Silver Hawk

I have been known as courtesan and spy,
I spy on one I am spying for,
And spying on my true master's allies.
Only his daughter-in-law knows.

A nice easy one for you all.


EDIT: Liallan, as Coe said, only answer if you know the actual answer. If you're not sure, then don't post. Also, your one's the 'returning' Moredhel

Um... Well, I'd say Talon, but it's probably wrong... Must have been something I haven't read...  

Anyway, here is mine:

They were stolen from us;
Snatched by sinister powers.
But some hear the call
helping find their way home
And their blood once again matches ours.


Nothing too difficult....
