Description: Clean, young athleticism defines Caspian: corded muscle lean and sculpted beneath the smooth dusky warmth of his skin, his lean, lanky frame might be a work of art to call to mind the sculptor's craft at statuary if you could get him to hold still for five minutes. He is dynamic and rarely still, driving motion through life at high speed. His wavy black hair is worn thick and long, his sloe-dark eyes often lit with an inner brilliance beneath the leaping arch of his active black eyebrows. His teeth flash white in ready grins, grinning challenge or fey humor in a fight as readily as he might grin delight and mirth at a festival.

Personality: Caspian is a cocktail of bright and dark, layer upon layer of glitter and glitz over a deeper uncertainty. His youth was forged uniquely in hardship, a stranger in a strange land in the Mourning Isles, punished for the sins -- literally -- of his parents. His new adulthood is a phoenix rise to a brilliant pinnacle of showmanship, grace, and basically glee. Caspian is quick: quick with words, deeds, weapons. But he's not hotheaded; he's mellow, bright-hearted, ready to defuse a situation with earnest-eyed hope as well as cause one with a badly-thought-out word. He loves jokes. He loves drama but pure melodrama, to throw himself into a performance with everything that he has. He loves attention. He laps it up. Give him more. More attention. He loves parties. He feeds off the energy of life and shines with it.

Background: Caspian was a thrall because his father was a thrall and his mother was also a thrall, and his father's war debt was a lot to pay. Yet the Thrax fealty has spent the last few years struggling towards what the rest of the Compact would call progress, and in an early push towards some of that progress, Donella Thrax freed some thralls who were thralls only by virtue of their parents' debts rather than their own. Caspian was freed at 19, with scattered memories of his tribe's honestly piratical raiding traditions mostly subverted by the day in and day out of long hours of hard labor with tenant farmers and ropemakers and sailors.

He found in his newfound freedom that what he was mainly good at was a.) hard labor and b.) knives! He took the surname 'Wild' because his parents didn't give him a better one, and became a mercenary and sword for hire, until he eventually tagged into being a duellist for the Champion's Guild in Arx on account of besting a few in combat and developing a reputation for being a real /showy/ sword for hire. Though he began as a kind of desperately hungry merc with an axe to grind, he blossomed into a delighted fighter at the opportunity to pitch his skills in the dueling ring to wealthy nobles. It was exactly the life for him. Money was suddenly easier to come by, and with money, delicious attention, heartwarming acclaim, and the love and affection of adoring crowds, at least as long as he was making a show of it. Turning to away from grim guts and leaping whole-heartedly into laughter and life, he shines with the brilliance of the bon vivant, and it's clear he's here to make a killing.

  • Name Summary
    Aerandir A capable fighter, if the first bout I have seen him in is any indication; the young man stood his ground admirably against the Knight of Pridehall in a duel. The man accepted his loss humbly, no less.
    Agatha Apparently he fights while covered in oil and tries to make women swoon, and he won! And the Princess that was a little tipsy the other night seems to really, REALLY like him. He must be very good at what he ddoes!
    Aiden He came out to the event to honor Lady Aislin and Lord Killian Ashford. I sense just by that, he knows what is right in the world. While most would think one person doesn't matter, it's what we do together that does. I think he sees that.
    Ainsley I didn't get a chance to speak with him very much, but he seems to be very much what you would expect of a Champion.
    Alarissa A champion, a commoner Thrax who seems to understand respect, and in truth, for the moment, quite enjoyable.
    Aleksei What a fighter! Exhilarating duel.
    Apollis A bold affable fellow. Duelist by trade and an entertainer by nature? Intriguing. I like his hair.
    Arianna He's a Champion and as I was taught by Champions...I'm kind of biased. I won't lie. The kid's got swag and he has a sense of humor. My kinda guy. I mean...that he's....easy on the eyes is just a plus. Bit of a jerk to my Liege lady but I think he meant well.
    Armani He seems like a decent folk. He might be good at seafairing. He claims usefulness.
    Artur A fighter I met in the Hall of Heroes. Interested in stories of the past, though more focused on the future. We laughed at the story of Rathlander Redrain, my great grandfather.
    Astraea The Champion came in and danced around his foes like it was just for fun. He put on a good show and I think in time he'll be something fierce. In the meantime I hope to see him again, before he gets famous and forgets about the likes of me! Good show and kind smile serrah!
    Atherton Friendly sort. Likely has many connections, though I'd expect many of them would like to see him stabbed as much as paid.
    Bastien Some sort of loud duelist.
    Cadenza Almost too handsome and too charming. Perhaps I should watch myself around him....or perhaps not.
    Cristoph Quick as a whip this one! He put me through my paces and really had me working for the match. I imagine that he knocks out plenty of fighters in the training center on a regular basis!
    Daemon A fine fighter with a fine sense of manners. May I be fortunate enough to cross paths with him again.
    Darrow A duellist who's eager to find a place.
    Delilah I had the pleasure of watching Caspian perform in the Rite of Gloria, a challenge between him and my dearest Lady Joslyn. What a wonderful event.
    Donaldo Champion and entertainer I heard him say, and with such a fitting name for both aspects. I don't doubt that he puts on a good show in either venue.
    Echo He's a good duelist and seems to enjoy himself as he's sparring. One day I'll challenge him and give him a good show.
    Ectorion A skilled fighter, he could not break through the armor I wear, but were it not for the armor that battle would have gone far, far differently indeed.
    Emilia Someone who seems to be on the right path.
    Giulio A more than a fair hand at the blade, an incorrigible flirt, with a glib tongue. How I do enjoy dangerous men.
    Grazia Rude. Crass. Obnoxious. This commoner is the lover of a princess and is crude enough to expose that fact in public. Just shameful, really. And, what's worse, he thinks he's funny!
    Gwenna A rather charming Champion that I met at The Fountain of Triumph. A very interesting man, to say the least! Funny as well as friendly, I hope to see him champion someone sometime soon.
    Ignacio While Caspian is loud and lewd, he has a certain charm about him as he goes on as he carried on with Felix. While Caspian left a vague threat of stabbing someone over a cookie, it was clearly good natured.
    Jacque I've seen him about a few times, including attending the Rite of Gloria. He's not afraid to take a risk and seems very enterprising for a champion, something that I can appreciate. Maybe I'll hire him if I take exception with another noble's foibles.
    Joscelin A duelist, charming, more charm than I'm ever used to ever ever ever, and how does a man kiss a person's hand without ever meeting them? I'm certain this is a nobility thing but unless I'm missing something, there's nothing of that in him. I mean. I'm assuming. I've only just met him. Also, too pretty.
    Leola A duellist, recently freed from thralldom. I wonder what he did there, and what he plans. I'm not reassured.
    Lou Caspian is another eager recruit to join the Explorers. He seemed to get more excited about the prospect the more danger I mentioned. He's someone to look after, but if he keeps his spirit, he may be a good addition.
    Lucita A newcomer to Arx who uses small weapons like me. We had a spar and seemed evenly matched, lasting round after round till both tired and finally he overcame me. It was a good spar and he displayed good sportsmanship, an amicable disposition. Will be interesting to see how he gets along in months to come.
    Mailys Devil may care is the first phrase that comes to mind which often makes for the best intrigues.
    Malesh he preformed a Rite to Gloria against my own Lady Joslyn. His spirits remained high, despite his defeat. Still, he is a man of some noteworthy moves in combat!
    Morrighan Not sure what tae make o' this one yet, this Thraxsworn. Claims tae be a fightin' sort, though I s'pose tha'll be found out soon enough. Will need tae converse more tae get a better assessment o' him. Seems easy goin' enough, amicable.
    Nierzen He thinks seeing Bastien upset would be funny. I liked that. That was about it.
    Norwood Every time this man fights I am in awe!
    Orathy Dog lover... them poor animals. Some champion eh. Good humor though, at least.
    Petal He is friendly and likes birds and likes attention. He seems like a good champion and one who will have lots of friends.
    Reese He seems playful and meeting him today has cheered me up some.
    Samael A man who loves dogs must be a good man. And he's brave enough to fight Joslyn, the Silken Knight of Pridehall. He is brave.
    Selene An amusing fellow who I met at the commoner's council. I suppose he might be some kind of minstrel or bard or other sort of entertainer in the making, since he was making jokes in the middle of it. That takes me back! It was cute how he was first clueless, and then quite surprised to realize who I was.
    Sorrel A performer and musician whom I can send out into the streets just as soon as I write the right song!
    Sparte A duelist with a quick wit and an admirable sense of humor.
    Stefano A duelist and champion as well as entertainer. He should have plenty of work once people turn from war preparation back to whatever they normally do to annoy each other.
    Talen Duelist. Young, carefree, probably needs to be hired. A Champion. Worth a few silver for a fun challenge sometime, maybe.
    Theron Good sleight-of-hand, some cheekiness and the ability to poke holes with a dagger so quickly that you get dazzled is always a good show. I like it!
    Thesarin The man has a... flair to him. Young, clean, vibrant and eager. My mirror image, eh?
    Torian There's a man who can through some darts, though he might have blown his luck early. Had enough left in the barrel to get him passed High Lord Victus though. A talent.
    Turo Entirely too flirty for me. There's something... unsettling about a man who has so many titles when none of them are related to his peerage or military service. Still, he seems nice enough.
    Valery He is a Champion. And he seems nice. Looking for a fun patron. He can't get a better than mine, though.
    Victus Look at him spin those blades. Spin spin, juggle juggle. He needs to hit something with him before I'm completely impressed, but he's got my attention.
    Zalika He is a former thrall just as I am and a champion. I find so much comfort in his familiarity with my own past and his strength.
    Zoey A crass and crude commoner with little sense not to flirt with a noblewoman. Especially when it is unwanted.
