IN-CHARACTER SECTION The Stormwind Army Recruitment Application
Please fill out the following below as accurately as possible in complete sentences and in your own words. If you are unable to reply with an answer, please give a brief explanation.
What is your full name? What is your race? Aurrias Coleridge, I'm human.
Where were you born? Southshore, Hillsbrad.
What is your date of birth? The present year of the Lotharian Calendar is 37 LC. 6 LC.
Where do you currently live? Hearthglen.
What is your most recent occupation? Who have you worked for in the past? Currently I am a member of the Argent Crusade. I've been an Argent since shortly after it's inception. Before that I served as a Squire in the Silver Hand.
What skills do you have to offer? While I am not as gifted in using the Light for combat or healing as others trained by the Silver Hand, I am rather proficient at fighting by more traditional means. I am also capable in the art of making a good chili.
Are you physically fit to serve as a soldier? Do you have any ailments, injuries, or curses? I am, for the most part. I have an old injury to my left leg, though it doesn't prevent me from doing anything. It merely aches in the cold.
Do you have a criminal record? If so, please explain your crimes and any punishments you endured. No, I do not. Unless you include the Church branding the Argent Dawn as heretics. Though, because of how the Church operates, nothing was really done about that.
Who would you name as your next of kin should you perish on the battlefield? What is their relation to you? Where do they live? Samuel Coleridge. He is my brother, he resides in Stormwind, in the Cathedral Square's Argent Crusade embassy.
Do you acknowledge that by enlisting in the Stormwind Army, you will be expected to swear fealty, service, and loyalty to the Kingdom of Stormwind and the House of Wrynn above all other nations and obligations? I do, I am most definitely willing to leave the Argent Crusade behind as well.
Do you acknowledge that by enlisting in the Stormwind Army, you will be expected to adopt our ethos, conduct, and way of life as a disciplined soldier? I do.
Do you acknowledge that by enlisting in the Stormwind Army, you may be sent to armed conflict in any part of Azeroth or beyond, with the associated risks and responsibilities involved? I do, and I hope so, the Crusade has grown stagnant.
Do you acknowledge that by enlisting in the Stormwind Army, you may be asked to take lives in the act of protecting the Kingdom of Stormwind’s interests? I do.
Why do you wish to serve with the Stormwind Army? If you are not originally a subject of the kingdom, why do you wish to enlist to serve Stormwind over your homeland? I wish to serve Stormwind because I've grown disillusioned with the Argent Crusade. In the past, during the Dawn, it was a worthy cause. Fighting to reclaim my home is something I'd do a thousand times over. The formation of the Crusade and taking the fight to Northrend was one of the greatest moments of my life, but in the years since then, the Argent cause has kind of burned itself out. After we took Hearthglen and started to rebuild the Western Plaguelands everything slowly came to a halt. We all but gave up on Stratholme. We grew fat and lazy nestled behind Hearthglen's walls and we paid dearly for it when we answered the call to the Broken Shore. I should note as well, that my family fled Stormwind during the first war, so in a sense, joining the Crown's military would be a sort of homecoming.
In which Division do you wish to serve the Stormwind Army? I'd assume my having served in the Silver Hand and then into the Argent Dawn would make me a decent match for the Diocese, however I'm sure my differing views on the Light from most others would put me at odds. I'd much rather serve in the Royal Infantry.
