10.Role-Play experience/expectations. Can you give us some examples of Role-Playing you have participated in before. When it comes to expectations, give us an example of what would be fun to participate in, what you are looking for, etc.
Well I started roleplaying in March of 2010. I took to it pretty fast. As far as expectations go, I don't really have any as long as there is active roleplay in the guild.

Roleplay example -
Calinhad listened as Master Seyshin explained how the commotion aboard the newly salvaged vessel had slowed the training of Padawans down a bit. It didn’t bother him though; he wasn’t in any hurry to get stronger.

The mention of Master Bailimur stopped Cal’s heart in his chest. Visions of the old man laughing, smiling, their time training, and saving people flooded his mind. He remembered their first mission, stopping a group of slavers on Ord Mantell. He remembered the proud look on his Master’s face.

The mention of Coruscant made the visions dissolve into shadows. He envisioned his old Master fighting in the Temple, trying to defend his home. His mind added in the shadowy figures of the Sith, circling the old man like Kath Hounds. His right hand instinctively reached for his training saber, his knuckles were white from clenching his fists. A rage grew in the pit of his stomach, and it felt good. He hated himself for that feeling.

And then the voice came,“Don’t let it control you,” Master Bailimur said. It sounded exactly the same as the first time he had gotten angry. Cal’s hands relaxed, his breathing returned to normal, and the shadowy figures were gone. The boy fell to his knees in exhaustion. He looked up at Master Seyshin, a bit embarrassed, and a bit thankful that the man’s back was turned.

“I just wish I could have been there,” he started, “to take that final blow for him.” A tear began crawling its way down his left cheek,“Master Bailimur was far more valuable to the Republic than a mere Padawan.”

11. How can you benefit and help the guild? Please include any skills or talents you have that you would enjoy doing within the guild. How have you helped your previous guild(s), if you have previous experience?
I am willing to learn new things. (that could be helpful) I have been told that my writing skills are very good, so I could help teach anyone who wishes to learn to better thier RP abilities. (I am no master, as there is always more to learn)

12. How do you define a quality member?
Caliber Mispir... Oh define.. thought you said name one. lol Well someone who is loyal, active, hardworking. Puts the guild's needs above thier own ambitions.

13. How did you find the
Army of Light? Did someone recruit you? If so, please let us know who.
I am a former member

14a.Have you visited our website and chat room, and familiarized yourself with the, Charter, Mission Statement, and Rules of Conduct? (You must answer in the affirmative and please prove that you have)

I have visited the site and the chat room.

I have familiarized myself with the rest. I am glad you all have a set of rules. I have been in guilds that did not and there was chaos all over. It was mostly just people sitting in chat, cursing back and forth. (I hate Sith guilds lol)

14b. Do you pledge to fulfill them, most notably to uphold the virtues of Maturity, Honor, Respect, Personal Ethics and No Drama?
I do.

15. Would you say that you embody the qualities of Respect, Honor, Loyalty, and Maturity? What are your definitions of these four words? Please don’t just answer yes or no, let us know why you think you possess these qualities.
I think that I do, however the point of this application is not about how i see myself, but how the guild sees me as a potential member.

It is difficult to define these words past thier original definitons.... performing an action in-game, say, passing on a rare item so the younger less experienced member can get it. (Honor)

Instead of buying those nice boots you like, give some of your gold to the guild bank (loyalty)

If a player bad mouths the guild in general chat, don't retaliate. Send him a whisper asking what the problem is. The rest of the players don't want your fight cluttering thier chat (Respect and Maturity)

16. In more than 30 but less than 100 words, please describe your personal character and the type of person you are (We wish to get a good feel of the type of person that will be becoming a part
of our guild family)
Well, where to start? I like reading and writing, a lot. I am currently reading Wizard's First Rule, book 1 in the 13 part Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. I like crime dramas like NCIS and CSI. I have dreams of becoming a federal agent or forensic scientist someday. I am a giving person. I tend to buy armor and weapons for new people in MMOs. I look forward to letting you all get to know me more as time goes by.

17. Tell us a little about your in-game character

Name: Calinhad Arakus

Physical Appearance:
Species: Human
Home World: Coruscant
Age: 18

Gender: Male
Height: 6’0”
Weight: 180lbs.
Eye Color: Emerald Green
Hair color: Light Brown
Skin Color: Light tan

Personality: Calinhad has a protector/defender mind frame. Master Bailimur always told him to be a shield to those who could not defend themselves, and to be a sword for those that could. While he does believe in the Order and the Code, his upbringing with Jorik has led him to also believe in love as something a Jedi can pursue, as long as it doesn’t lead to obsession.

Identifying Marks: A few scars on his body from past battles, but even more scars on his mind. He blames himself for each death he could have prevented. The Council has always told him to rejoice for those who become one with the Force, but Calinhad can't do that. He doesn't get angry that often, just really sad. He sometimes pushes himself too far, risking his own safety to save as many people as he can.


Calinhad was born to Jaden and Katriana Arakus in the shady underbelly of Coruscant. Jaden was a gambler, and not a very good one at that. He was in debt up to his head and he was desperate to save himself. He arranged to sell his wife and son to slavers to make the money to pay off his debts but, when his wife learned of this she took Calinhad and ran away. The next day, Jaden was found dead in his home.

For two years Katriana lived on the streets, begging and doing other unmentionable tasks to make enough money to feed her baby. When one of her "clients"(a big, burly man, with many tattoos) became abusive with her, she ran. She got to Calinhad but was cornered by the tattooed man. He pulled out a knife and said, "I'm going to slice your child's throat and make you watch." Katriana screamed for help, not expecting anyone to care about a beggar and her child.

A voice came from behind the tattooed man, "Shouldn't you be in some cesspit making some Hutt happy?" The tattooed man turned around to see a hooded man, half his size, standing before him. The big man lunged at the smaller man, who was already sidestepping and reaching for something underneath his cloak.

All Calinhad heard was a buzzing noise and then screams of pain. The tattooed man ran off screaming, holding a stub where his left hand used to be. The hooded man was a Jedi, a master by the name of Jorik Bailimur. Katriana thanked the Jedi and begged him to take her child as she could no longer keep him safe. Jorik took the child and felt a strong flow of the Force within him. He cared for the child and watched as the power of the Force grew within him.

When Calinhad was five years old, Jorik presented him to the Council, who allowed him to become Jorik's apprentice. For many years Calinhad learned everything he could from his master. Calinhad was fascinated by the power he had and, remembering the tattooed man, vowed to rid the galaxy of all evil.

When Calinhad was sixteen, he and Master Bailimur were sent to Ord Mantell to rescue slaves. Many slavers were killed in the fighting and all but one slave made it out alive. A stray blaster shot hit a woman. She fell dead and her two children ran to her side. Calinhad charged the slaver, who was impaled by the lightsaber before he could react.

When Calinhad knelt down with the children they looked up at him with so much pain it made him weep. He vowed to never let another innocent person die when he was there to save them. It was a promise that he could not keep, and one that would bring sadness in the years to come.

When the Sith attacked Coruscant, Calinhad was with Master Bailimur at a hospital visiting a friend. Master Bailimur told Calinhad to stay and protect the patients and hospital staff, while he went to the Temple to see if he could help. It was at this hospital that Calinhad met the young Trooper, Jarek Vrand and his foster father, Martin. The three of them were able to get the people to safety but Cal later learned that his Master was killed in the Temple.

Calinhad followed the Jedi to Tython, but grew distant as he began blaming himself for Jorik’s death. His only time of happiness was when he sent a letter and gift to his friend Jarek on his birthday. Finally the Council on Tython decided to tranfer him to the Army of Light to get his mind of his Master's death and get him involved in the fight with the Sith.
