Nashdu: 100(!) min background
Nashdu is a Merfolk Observer, looking a lot like the iconic Skywatcher Adept merfolk.
Full Background:
Found by an expedition in search of artifacts when he was just a baby, abandoned near the Enatu Temple ruins before the first Enatu Golems awakened, Nashdu was taken into custody by a Merfolk Wayfinder known as Raya, who raised him in multiple places. Most of the time in Portage, with the help of the person closest to her, Piqua, one of the leaders of the Tazeem Expeditionary House. Then at times also in her underwater community near

Dark Eldar: Allomorphosys - A1
Only the eerie rhythmical swing of the blades of a prehistoric air-duct fan, and a distant humming sound filled the extremely dry air of that deep place. Nowhere near the buzzing surface or the terrible spires kilometres above, "The Grove" as it was called, wasn't even technically a part of Commorragh. It was more of an extension of the webway in a direction that could have been defined "south" only metaphorically-speaking, given the non-euclidean geometry of the webway. If the portion of the web that included vast Comorragh had something like deep serpentine viscera, "The Grove" would be close to the ending sphincter.
Few kilometers farther, and the webway stretched into another realm, a forsaken place said to have been completely flooded by some kind of liquid, a manifestation of the warp. Killing everyone there in a single instant, an untold "accident". As long as one could believe in accidents when Dark Eldars are involved. There lurked swimming horrors beyond even his vast and dar

Dedahvrov's Diary - Entry IV
A sudden blinding light wakes him up. The sun was already quite high when it could reach inside the crevice he was using as a refuge. All is white. Very long moments pass in which he really can't see anything but white. The sound of the near waves and the pebbles rolling over each other on the shore are everything his senses can discern. After some time he starts to feel some wind too, an irregular breeze. He stays there immobile, not a thought in his head. He's probably still too tired and battered even to think, an after-battle state he knows quite well. Another moment of sleepiness caught him even if the light could not be blocked by his closed lids. He's finally woken up by another much more inviting sensory input. A strong scent of fresh fish-meat. A first thought finally forms slowly in his mind. He needs food.
He got out of the crevice slowly, discovering that turning his head a little meant a pleasent reduction of the amount of light attacking his eyes. A cofused blather that s

Dedahvrov's Diary - Entry III
He was now staring at the bottom, with its nearly hypnotic patterns made up by broken hedrons, gigantic coral formations and brightly colored algae and sponges. There was surely some venomous thing every other two square feet, or so he thought. All of this was invisible to even most of the sea creatures that lived there, because the night hosted only a very thin crescent and many voluminous clouds, with the stars coming out at intervals. The warrior could see this well only because he was not human, not anymore at least. His shadow-infused eyes were perhaps even more at ease in the darkness than in the light.
He was estimating that some three-to-four dozens strokes ahead, the reef would have been at his feet's reach. He also spotted some movement ahead, a reddish mass encircling a hedron, recognizable by the glowing light coming from the engraved part. It could have been anything from this distance. And so could have been the bright things that were bouncing on the bottom. First one, t

Dedahvrov's Diary - Entry II
The lush off-shore forest was of a type he hardly knew. He had noticed before that Halimar's coasts were more often than not home to this strange type of forest-reefs, but he had not been inside one yet. His camouflaging skills did not depend very much on terrain as long as it was open and covering, so he wasn't having many problems with that. The challenge was movement through the typical calcite beehive-like structure intertwined with the vegetation. The structure protruded from the vegetation in random and seldom visible spots, and to land a feet next to one of those thin spines meant a bad ankle-cut on the next step taken.
The flowers hidden here and there at various heights also made navigation more difficult. And it was because they were true eye-openers for the foreigner. Smaller compared to the typical man-sized fleshy flowers of the jungles of Guul Draaz, but much more beautiful and brightly colored. No big animals were found during the run, and the other side of the isle was

Dedahvrov's Diary - Entry I
The small company of sell-swords, and academy-banned battlemages was preparing for the ship to drop the anchor at that beautiful nameless island ahead. The coast was visible on half the horizon, and distant floating hedrons dotted the sky, so it was a particularly clear and sunny day in that rather centric region of the Halimar, the inner sea.
Vurokslaw, or Vurokk as everyone there known his name to be, had been even more quiet than usual during this last portion of the trip.
The only merfolk of that trader's guard was staring directly at him, as he often did, looking entranced, all curled up in a corner with his big young eyes "blinking sideways", as all merfolk eyes.
Suddenly, in an unprecedented act, Vurokk started unlocking his helm-mask, the merfolk visibly startled by the move. In a few seconds, a few previously invisible mechanical locks clicked and shifted, and what appeared to be a grey-skinned human face emerged from that deathly metal visage.

Ardanach, The Witch-Knight
The union of two different worlds led to my presence in this earth, a blessed union that led to a cursed divide inside my soul.
I still can't tell which bloodline in my lineage led me to condemn my life to the bleak condition it now struggles through.
The passionate dedication with which I consecrated my life to knight-ship was probably human, the deity I chose to be a paladin of was definitely elven.
The love for magic was then both born of my elven blood and of direct inspiration from my faith. But the love for power which led me to approach the arcane arts from such an easy way as I came to, such a wrong way... It was definitely human.
Now I find myself one of the greatest of my knightly order, a master of combat and magic, whose spells of light drove away scores of creatures of darkness.
But what my fellow warriors can't tell, and many times neither I can tell, is if that light comes from Corellon's bright star, or from some other star.
And that's why I started to write thes

The Nemesis, The Beast
The Beast was coming towards him.
The two could see everything, every bit of horror, from any angle; the darkness they emanated was not an obstacle for any of them.
The slightly different hauntings of the wild merged, and the two originators quickly found themselves immersed in that atmosphere of dual madness, circling around each other, the trees twisting in pain, animals crying and running away in every direction, while the two sources of blackness pierced the damp air with their eldritch gazes.
My shivers were beyond any conceivable control, like if they were the first dictated by true dread; or the ones before the first, the progenitors of all shivers exactly like those two beings were the fathers of all ancestral fears, for the time being...
Murder was behind any corner, any lapsed instant.
The Beast acted first with dazzling speed.
Sabrak couldn't even seize the situation when it pounced on him, leaving a trail of rotten black smoke in its wake. An excruciating pain followed, and

Wildhaunt
There he was. Or maybe there. Here. But always in many places at once. Body, soul, mind, animus... All scattered in different proportions in various places, objects... living things.
Now he was slowly crawling out of this incredible state of being.
Shadows moved unnaturally towards a clear spot in the dense undergrowth. The branches, twisted by his presence inside them, flickered through various movements along with the shadows.
Drops appeared on what it seemed an old, dead tree trunk covered by fungi, there in the clear spot, as if the dew of the early morning had formed all in a very short time, and all there.  
A thick, at times coloured mist (And thinking about it, I really can't remember the colours) appeared at an increasing pace.
And just when I couldn't see well enough that small spot where it seemed nature was living by other rules; just when the shadows, the palpable humidity, and the flickering first light from above dazzled my eyes and mind, there he was. I

Dackle: 10 min background
TEN-MINUTE CHARACTER BACKGROUND
Name: Dackle (Not that he uses his true name very often, being always playing the part of  someone else)
-(bonus)- Catch phrase: * very loud laugh! *
5 Background and Concept Elements:
-1- He comes from a very well-respected clan of gnolls. Respected in the region they dwell in, at least. They are hunters of monsters and instead of the evil tendencies gnolls are famous for, they just sport some inclination towards trouble-making. Dackle is no exception. He is extremely sociable and prone to make friends everywhere he goes. He gets himself into trouble, but more often to get others out of them than for anything else. He is merciless when fighting against evil-doers, especially when they are authoritative figures, and that's the other main reason behind him being always into trouble. Zany and lively, daring and silver-tongued, he is a typical swashbuckler that everybody either love or hate.

Sabrak: 10 min background
TEN-MINUTE CHARACTER BACKGROUND
Name (nickname): Sabrak ("Crack / flaw" in Dwarven, chosen by his friend Darren, a dwarf wizard. He doesn't remember his original name)
-(bonus)- Catch phrase: "Some say they want to follow their dreams. If I say so myself, be sure to run fast."
5 Background and Concept Elements:
-1- He was quite lucky as a child, good family, tranquil life in a peaceful village, but he suffered from terrible nightmares. Eventually, in just one night, it was as if his nightmare left his mind to invade reality. The village was destroyed by the growth of intricate and dark vegetation and the population killed by fell beasts. The place was left to its fate by the local baron, with no intervention whatsoever, and he took refuge in the forest, where he lived terribly for the first years, and then a little better when he managed to control his strange powers.

Glamrenlith: 10 min background
TEN-MINUTE CHARACTER BACKGROUND
Name: Glamrenlith (in Sindarin, took as Eladrin elvish, it means "echoing dust/ash")
-(bonus)- Catch phrase: "The earth saved me, the earth claimed me."
5 Background and Concept Elements:
-1- He's a survivor of an ancient battle that completely destroyed his city (Cendriane?) when he was very little, he doesn't even remember, but he was eventually blessed with great primal power in a place he had been using as refuge. The place was a fey demesne of some kind of green fey strongly related to the earth or maybe just a place of primal power in the feywild.
There he went in a strange state of hibernation for an unknown amount of time, waking up with his distinctive features (skin the color of earth, bleached blond hair, and even beard, normally absent in elves).
So he is of unknown age, but has the mind of a very young boy, albeit unnaturally calm and serene.
