Lord Naka Laurent
Obsessions are fantastic for spurring you on. Also for grinding you to a halt.
Description: Naka is lean and pleasantly, as opposed to strikingly, handsome. He possesses an easy demeanor and an engaging, if tentative, grin. His personal style in fashion and grooming tends to the haphazard rather than the precise, with layered clothing of varied styles and fabrics setting off his dark, slightly and studiously unkempt hair and everpresent stubble.
Personality: Naka doesn't really lack drive and focus; it just seems that way, set against the backdrop of centuries of House Laurent industry. While he does not lack energy, he certainly is not notably organized in thought or action. He is mild, earnest and pleasant, though, and possessed of a quiet wit that often turns towards the self-deprecating. He simply plays to his weaknesses instead of hiding them, without posturing or self-loathing.
Background: Naka was simply never a child of destiny, a heroic figure in modern times with potential blazing forth for all to see. There's nothing wrong in that, and plodding along is a serviceable way to cover some ground. Bright but no brilliant, genial but not inspiring, and largely undistinguished physically as well, Naka sampled from life as from a buffet, without ever really finding a niche to excel in. His wide-ranging education could be an asset of its own in some circumstances, though those circumstances seem not to have yet come about. A great many things have changed in Arvum in recent years, however, and Naka has arrived in Arx in the wake of the Siege, at a time when circumstances continue to change daily.
