(This is my first attempt at a skin) Meister der Toten is actually a charachter inspired by an RP thread from awhile ago. His name is Germen for 'Master of the Dead'. As a child, He was know as Kind eines Sterne, Child of a Star. He contracted a disease at a young age, causing his skin to turn a pailish yellow, much like Napoleon Bonaparte. All of the other children made fun of him, and he was isolated. He took an intrest into alchemy, seeing as how his mother grew strange herbs, and his father was a metalworker. He made several potions, most usless, like turning your breath green, or making your farts smell like flowers. His pride and joy was a potion that, when drunk, would restore a person to full health by taking the energy from a plant that the user was touching. The plant would die, but the man would live. He attempted to expand on this, make it so that you can suck the life out of any living being, rather than just plants. He succeeded, but when he tested it on himself, there was nothing nearby to leech the life from. Instead, he stole his own life. He became even more disfigured than he already was, blanching his skin of all colors except for grey. He his mother wove him a cloak to cover his face, but he refused to go out into public. Then, his father died in an accident at the forge he worked at. Kind eines Sterne started to develop a potion to ressurect the dead, but failed misrebly. At age 16, he left his town in search of something that could bring his father back. He eventually found a ruined area, with moss covered stone, and cryptic hiroglyphics. In the ruins, he found a book, full of random symbols and words. He spent a full year trying to decipher these symbols, and finnaly figured it out. He wrote a symbol on a separete parchement, then said words that were near it. The symbol glowed, and then the parchment crumpled itself up, caught fire, and lurched forward. It exploded on contact with a wall. Eventually, he found the rune for resurrection. It worked fine on someone that recently died, but, when he tried to resurrect his father who died two years eairlier, something horrifying occured. His father rose, but with no skin or flesh left on him. He was a skeleton that only knew pain and rage. Kind eines Sterne had to kill his undead father. The town banished him, but before he left, he cursed it with a random spell from the book. Unknowing to him at the time, that spell rose all dead, and everyone was killed by zombies and skeletons. Now, to this day, he calls himself Meister der Toten, and every night, he raises all the dead in the world to terrorize all of those that live.
Now my fingers hurt from typing this.
Feedback would be much appreciated, because this is my first skin, and I want to know what I need to improve on.
