Okay, I've been putting off joining this game, mainly because I don't care for mixing 5e rules and 3.5 rules while playing multiple games, but in my reading I find it interesting to try again. I've done similar gaming decades ago, as a teenager, and it was fun! Here goes:
I have always been stronger than anyone I know, and people recognize this when I handily lift and haul and drag equipment that is usually marked (2 people carry).
I also have generally superior reflexes, reacting typically faster than an average person, catching flies in flight, reactions for thrown objects and catching them, etc. Mostly because a dad of four kids has to be fast, some times! *laugh*.
I am definitely an average for constitution with regards to disease, as young children bring home all manner of colds, flus, etc. And it takes me a normal amount time to get over them. I have been scarred and injured in minor ways, over my life, mostly because I don't feel pain as others do, as my TKD instructors have commented on often, when they try pressure points and pain holds on me, and I have no real need to react to their attempts. I usually cut or injure my skin and don't notice it until minutes after the event, while working.
I am a logical thinker, able to diagnose and solve problems faster and more intuitively than my coworkers, whether because of experience or just quick-thinking. I am a CTO in a national network engineering computer services company, and I have been working with computers for over 39 years, since I was in grade 7. I have worked on mechanical project, such as cars, power systems, as well as construction, electronics repair, alternative energy systems, wood working, metal working and many other trades. I have an active willingness to try my hand at any task I need to, except for anything that may put my life or others at risk.
While not the tops in wise choices, I would put myself at least average, as I have raised(And still raising!) four children - ages 18,16,12 and 4 - and I am better than well off, with good standing with regards to finances and such. I would certainly put my wife as wiser than I.
Charisma is a harder thing for me to define. When I was young, I was the stereotypical geek - smart, top grades, bullied, etc. Shy and very introverted, my days were spent reading and writing more than socializing, although I always had a gaming group that I'd regularly play with. These days, at 51, I cn usually attract attention without a lot of effort, being able to speak on any topic, clearly and with energy, since I regularly run instruction classes with clients and educate fellow technicians concisely. I also seem to have an effect on others of the opposite sex, having to be very careful of what I say to them, as I've been propositioned a few times. This more likely comes from being well-spoken and friendly, but I'm not sure.
I spent some minor time in the military, but found I could not take orders from anyone I didn't respect. I was an excellent shot, both with a rifle and with a bow, but I'm not sure how I would do these days with a rifle. I still practice archery as a casual sport. I take TaeKwonDo for exercise and knowledge, and have achieved blue rank (5) casually. Even my instructor has said "I wouldn't want to meet you in dark alley" with regard to my abilities. I am an avid researcher of many topics, able to read, absorb produce valid results at very high speed, which is a boon to my job.
I still regularly LARP, even at my age, and have a blast while doing so!
I am an active supporter of alternative energy, having solar panels on my lake property and driving an EV daily. I believe that with solid support of our government, we can be completely off oil-based fuels in a very short time, but that is a bit of a pipe dream, as greed at all levels is a difficult force to defeat.
I have researched all manner of religions in details, trying to find one that matched my own philosophies, and became Jewish after marrying my wife. I believe in God as a parent, one that has let their child leave their control and learn and grow on their own.
I am always curious and love to figure things out, learning is a never-ending process for me. I will research in detail any topic that strikes my interest, developing a position and/or opinion only after thoroughly examine as many sides as I can. I have changed my opinions once presented with compelling data or proof and I always prefer to keep emotional content out of any discussion, bringing facts and solid data to the table, rather than anecdotes or emotional 'beliefs', when supporting my stances.
