kegling

A German historian named William Pehle, asserted that bowling began in Germany around 300 AD. Monks would set up pins called kegels, which represented human sins or temptations. They would then throw stones at the pins, thus conquering sin. Kegling is another term for bowling, even today. There are records indicating that some variation of bowling has been played throughout history all over the world.

Name: Glend Neverthoughtofalastname
Aliases: n/a
Setting: SWTOR, Vierce!verse

Appearance:
Glend has some of the pudge and some of the hair loss of middle age, but has pleasant features and an air of comfortable solidness. He wears button-down shirts and durable jeans.
Origin (IC): Born and raised on Kegled II, Glend is a minor businessman by avocation. He moved to West Ford City in year eight of the Imperial occupation (nine years before Vierce’s class story starts).
Origin (OOC):
I thought it would be sad for Widow Savins to never have another love, so I thought about what fitting that one nice piece into her life again would look like.
Dark Confession:
He had a crush on Widow Savins from the day he walked into her West Ford City shop. To go darker, he never gave material help to the Kegled resistance. He lived in absolute terror of the Imperials and never voluntarily did anything to increase the risk of punishment.

You’re joking, right? This is a joke?

Suitor of Widow Savins, soon-to-be stepfather of Vierce Savins and Kirsk Savins
