Walen spent most of his life being "overlooked", it's hard not to be considering his size but that didn't stop him from trying to be noticed. That is, until he discovered his gift of song and his ability to change peoples attitudes with those same songs. He always tried to be the voice of reason before fights got started....mainly for two reason, first - it kept brawls from happening which would tear up the establishments he was working in, and second - it meant that he didn't have to work for free due to repair costs.
After hearing the king's call, Walen jumped at the chance to prove himself....so he departed Heroham in search of glory...after all, it would give him more to sing about...
Please tell me he goes by Walen, yes? Also, I find it funny that your surname is Silvershaper. My character's original surname was Silverkin, but I changed it because Rigil's character's last name was Silversword. Maybe I should change it back so we have a theme going.
We have no idea what this character looks like (except he's short)
You never re-did his backstory like you intended
Notice: If you find yourself feeling offended by something I've written, it is extremely unlikely that I actually intended any such offense—please allow me the benefit of doubt before you respond. If you still feel the need respond to a perceived insult, please let me know, in specific, how I could have rewritten my post in an unoffensive manner.

1. Mother - Sacred (Emotion). This person, objector, or situation is sanctified by God, pure and holy. Supernatural powers or protection may surround it or come from it. 2. Father - Strength (Destiny). Though the task at hand is daunting, the strength to see it through, whatever the cost, is within reach. 3. The Strength of His Parent's Relationship: Industry (Wealth). The task at hand will be difficult. Only an extremely hard-working person will earn the satisfaction and reward for a job well done. 4. The Problems Between his Parents: The Prodigy (Emotion). The "golden child" is loved and admired by all. It is felt that this person can do no wrong, whether it is true or not. 5. The Circumstances of his Birth: Compassion (Emotion). Love and compassion are the focus. This may represent a specific instance of charity, affection, kindness, generosity, or mercy. 6. Complications, if any. Envy (Wealth). If one feels the universe is rewarding others unfairly, the bitterness that sets in can be all-consuming. 7. The Universe's Influence on Him or his Nature. War (Identity). Negotiations break down. No equitable solutions can be agreed upon. Conflict escalates to violent combat. 8. Early Strengths. The Angel (Destiny). The highest forces in the universe stand united in support of the situation and protect all involved from harm. 9. Early Weaknesses. Humility (Emotion). Remaining humble even in the face of accolades is the mark of a strong character - or perhaps low self-esteem. 10. Education. Harmony (Destiny). Whether taking the form of the physical environment or the general populace, the forces of the external world are united in providing support. 11. Belief Foundation. Intuition (Will). Sometimes instinct is more accurate than deduction. Listening to hunches and feeligns from the subconscious mind is important and more likely to pay off. 12. Life Experience. The Threshold (Destiny). Someone is being drawn into other realms, beginning a voyage that largely takes place outside the normal world. 13. A Shaping Experience in Recent Times. The Wolf (Will). Sometimes the Monster is cloaked in a perfectly mundane guise, easily mistaken for one of the sheep. That doesn't make it any less repulsive or dangerous. 14. An Experience That Left Scars. Lust (Emotion). Unbridled carnal desire blinds one to reason and takes control of his or her actions. 15. The State of the Character at the Beginning of the Story. The Fan (Identity). This person deeply admires someone and seeks every chance to sing his or her praises.

@chrisiii- Are you planning on going into Rogue when we level up? I am just curious because I am writing up my campaign and I would formulate it differently if we didn't have anyone in the party with Roguey abilities.

With the permission of the GM's ...am going to put a variant on Walen called "Healing Hymn" it will replace the fascinate ability with Healing Aura type ability
OK...this is up in the air at this point...thoughts on this, below is what Healing Hymn does -
"For one daily use of Bardic Music, grant +3 sacred bonus to any conjuration (healing) spell cast by an ally. The effect lasts as long s you continue performing and for 5 rounds thereafter. In addition, if you use this ability for 1 full minute before you and your allies retire for the night, everyone in the group heals naturally as if he had completed 24 hours of bed rest (thus recovering twice his character level in hitpoints)"
as we don't currently have a healer...not sure this would be a good change..
"For one daily use of Bardic Music, grant +3 sacred bonus to any conjuration (healing) spell cast by an ally."
I have no issue with the variant itself (from a mechanics perspective) and don't mind if you take it...
However I do not think it would be a good trade off. While the double healing at night is nice, the main use is the +3 sacred bonus to any conjuration (healing) spell cast by an ally... We don't have any caster that cast those spells so it would be a complete waste of time for you... It seems like that is a feat to compliment a cleric or druid in the party and we have neither...
