Social Rank: 7
Concept: Grizzled Warrior Knight
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Blue
Description: Piercing blue eyes accented by dark brows. They are cold and calculating. Long dark hair of raven black, slightly yet naturally curly which cusps his strong and angular face. He is massive, both in height and muscle. A man who is clearly a warrior of some kind and has scars to prove it. His skin is white, almost pale, covered in scars here and there. There are a number of tribal marking, tattoo's on his arms indicating a possible exotic ethnicity or culture.
Personality: Elrych is quiet and serious. While not without morals and a conscious, he follows orders and lives to be on the battlefield. He speaks only when he feels it it important and is not one for idle conversation usually. He longs one day to be granted land in the Oathlands and perhaps settle down. However, his stoic demeanor and seemingly harsh warrior mentality leave him hard pressed to form any lasting relationship... especially with his occupation. He takes pride in both his heritage and his service to the Lyonesse.
Background: Elrych was second born to house Holzfahller, the head family belonging to a small nomadic clan of woodsmen and warriors who wandered the Oathlands. His people were superstitious and weary of outsiders though still retainers to the House of Lyonesse. Long ago the Lyonesse were in battle with one of the other five Great Houses. Elrych's people were sought for removal and genocide. The Lyonesse helped them fight off their would be conquerors and as thanks and tribute, all non-heirs were to serve the Lyonesse and report to Lyon's Redoubt to train as Knights and Warriors and serve in the Oathlands armies under their Liege's command. Elrych spent his first 12 years learning the ways of his people, as was customary. He was expected to make his family proud when he went off to Lyon's Redoubt as generations did before him. His previous experience allowed him to excel among the other students rousing admiration and respect in some, and Disdain from those with more privileged backgrounds. Regardless of how many fights he got in, he was able to overcome and make the best of the situation. He was offered leadership positions in his units all throughout his squiring. Finally graduating, he was assinged to a detatchment and marched around the Oathlands with the Army. Making his way up the ranks and gaining experience in combat and leadership. Now, upon his 26 years--he is a veteran Knight loyal to the Lyonesse, wise with years of combat and ready to take on the challenges presented to him by his Liege.
