Lord Klaus Laurent
A commander ought always to remember that a man's life is worth more than the mere satisfaction of his own pride.
Description: Klaus is tall and strong, but more rakish than built up like a brick house. His good looks come with a rakish charm, high cheekbones, well shaped mouth and square-ish jaw. His eyes are a deep, arm brown and his hair a short cropped mess of black curls. He exudes a personable nature, one that extends to the keen interest in his gaze and the frequently thoughtful expression that graces his face.
Personality: Klaus is an amusing guy that takes shots at himself as much as other people. While he's generally pretty nice, his sense of humor tends to be dry and a touch sarcastic. He's a capable soldier, horseman and a decent diplomat with an even temperament and a penchant for thinking things through rather than going on gut hunches.
Background: Klaus has been wielding a sword almost as long as he can walk. Sure, his first sword was a stick that he used to brain his brother Eiran with, but we all need to start somewhere! From there he trained as a squire with Sir Norwood and later served in the Laurent army. He worked closely with his cousin, Cristoph and the two were close comrades on the front lines right up until Duke Laurent's heir suffered a grevious injury and focused on less deadly duties.
He grew into a steady, accomplished commander in the Laurent army and often had the fully loyalty of any troops under him. He became known as a leader who could listen to the words of his men and accept constructive criticism. He's never been one to bark orders unncessarily. With Cristoph handling the duchy as Duke, and as such, behind the scenes more than in front, Klaus is often leading the Laurent forces from the front lines.
He also excelled as a horseman and thorougly enjoyed hunting. While he naturally worships the Pantheon as a whole, Petrichor calls to him even before Gloria.
|Clover||An interesting young man who seems to find his training important, and he has an adorable squirrel companion!|
|Coraline||Charming, good conversationalist, and willing to run off to sea on mad adventures with me. I look forward to knowing him better.|
|Cullen||Lord Klaus is another fine example of the Laurents, one of the great Houses of a great fealty. Someone with a sense of humor and not afraid to drink a beverage stronger than milk in public, thank the gods, and keeps a squirrel! I wonder if he's met Sally...|
|Hannah||Anyone who can have such a devoted squirrel friend as this man has, must be a good sort. I do wish to know about the horse kissing though. All the same he appears to me to be a good guy.|
|Harper||He seemed like he was real good to his animals, which is good. Even more than that, I liked his sense of humor and the fact that he kept his word. When you combine the two and end up seeing him kiss his horse to pay the loss of a bet, then that's definitely something that's gonna stand out.|
|Jasher||First encountered shirtless, drunk, and with a pet squirrel. Reminds me of somebody I knew. I wonder if he will turn out the same way.|
|Reigna||A curious sort, but then the Laurents rarely conform to expectations. A solider from all accounts, though he certain appears to have a mischievous side that he embraces.|
|Sabella||An incredibly polite member of the Laurent family--which I'm not shocked by since they're all so delightful! He had a beautiful way with words and I'd quite like to engage in conversation with him again soon!|
|Vanora||Soft spoken with rambunctious animals, Coraline seems to enjoy his company|
