    Charr Mesmer?

    So I have gotten bored of my guardian and I am thinking about making a Charr Mesmer just to be a complete hipster.
    How would this fit into the lore? I don't see many Charr being fabulous.

    Could be an Ash Legion Charr who wants to use illusion and deception in order to be a stealthy fighter. That's what I'd do if I were to make a Charr mesmer!

    They'd fit right in with the Ash Legion.

    Mesmers are "fabulous" by definition, now?

    They're magical duelists. As stated above, the Ash Legion seems to be a pretty good fit for a mesmer, although charr aren't typically fond of magic.

    Purple = fabulous and sassy. Did you not get the memo?

    I have a Charr Mesmer who wears a suit. He looks very dapper.

    I actually see more charr mesmers than norn mesmers. My server is weird I suspect.

    In one of the personal story arcs, your sire is a Mesmer.

    And I'm pretty sure, in the Blood Legion arc, that Soure Doomsday is actually a Mesmer, even though everybody says he's a Necromancer.


    Mesmers aren't all about being fabulous - the society at large has just taken it in that direction because of the pink/purple butterfly-filled magic. Mesmers are illusionists. Tricksters. Deceivers.

    And plenty of Charr are deceptive tricksters. Even outside of the Ash Legion.
    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.

    You can, but you'll end up looking like you're a bullfighter.

    Wait, I thought you hated Charr. That's not you, is it?

    Well, specifically, I seem to remember Fencers saying she doesn't like playing the "monster" or "animal" races, or something.

    The only reason i didn't roll a Charr was that i didn't like their animations
    Really love the class lorewise.

    I rolled a Char Necro...kinda wishing I had done Engi. They seem to look cool no matter what they are doing. If only I could equip the monocle and the dapper suits shown above. Then it would be living the dream.

    I will say Char look awesome with the crazy witchdoctor facepaint going on.

    The only monsters here are those that don't see just how stylish her Charr is!

    I'm playing a Charr thief, and I'm dying for the black dye.
