I'm afraid you're going to have to seriously improve this bio if you want to take a book character, especially Legolas. Some nice suggestions, before Ary finds this topic and tears it to pieces:

1) Look at other RP threads to see how you're supposed to write. You write it like a book, basically.

2) Work on the dialogue. Lots of the phrases you have there are VERY "modern." Think about the comparable era of our world that they lived in (Dark Ages), and try and not use modern cliches in your dialogue.

3) Please, you can spell "Ok" instead of just "k." It's only one more letter, and it's right above "k" on the keyboard. Regardless, do you really think someone from that era would've said "Ok"? See point #2.

4) Have you only seen the movie? Remember that the movie is hardly an accurate representation of the book. Try reading the books (start with the Hobbit, it's great for starters, I loved it) and then see how much better you can play Legolas.

All in all, I think you should ditch Legolas and create an original character. They're easy to pass with. After you've read the books and improved your writing style, you can reapply for Legolas, but that won't be for some time now. Be patient.
