Brother Tomwell Leary

You'd think the world would have had enough of silly love songs, but I look around me and I see it isn't so.

Description: Long waves of brown hair fall loosely around Tomwell's neck jaw and neck, usually a little unruly, with a forelock of bangs that keeps falling into his eyes. His eyes are blue-gray, deep-set and narrow. His strong nose and sturdy jaw lend a hint of ruggedness to looks that might ordinarily be just a little too pretty, with the soft curve of his mouth and the ridiculously long length of his eyelashes. His lean height balanced by the easy grace of his carriage, much about the way Tomwell moves suggests his dancer's elegance.

Personality: Wistful and warm, Tomwell is and has always been a good boy. He does what he's supposed to do, even if he'd rather be doing something else. He loves music and art and poetry; he loves stories and songs and idle flirtation; he loves getting to know people and working out how they tick. He likes parties, not so much giant uproarious bashes but intimate gatherings with soft music and nice food where the real allure is in meeting people and just having a good conversation. Responsibility weighs him down, but it will never entirely dampen his puppyishly boyish smile.

Background: When the oldest dies and the second son inherits, it disrupts the fortunes of the rest of the family. It wasn't that it was never a possibility for Tomwell to stand as heir, but he just never really expected it or included it in his life plans. He loved gaming and singing and dancing and the kind of courtier playing around that accompanies those practices; he planned to become a Whisper or a courtier and become a professional musician and diplomat, but if not that, he thought maybe he could throw himself into really being a Devotion of Limerance and maybe even godsworn and leaving his family behind to completely devote himself to the arts. Anything but what actually happened to him, which is that when his eldest sister died, the full weight of becoming his brother the March's heir fell across his shoulders. Become the Voice of the Leaholdt was not what he had in mind.

Especially since he's now stuck with it, since Lady Iliana and March Fairen haven't managed to have any kids. Tomwell yearns for poetry and song and the romantic life that those things might possibly entail, but instead he remains with his duty to the family, too loyal and dutiful to seriously consider abandoning practical reality in pursuit of his dreams.

Name Summary
Aerandir A pleasant seeming nobleman, professing to be an entertainer of people; a singer, in particular. He joined the ongoing conversation with ease, a rather blatant indication of the man being accustomed to social calls, though that should be no surprise for a singer and one of the gentry.
Alarissa He is an avid student, outspoken and makes no apologies for his words. We bump heads and I am sure we will bump them further n the future over topics. But it's good to do that. If everyone agrees all the time, life would be dreadful.
Aleksei He seems like a pretty warm guy. And he's got good taste, so.
Artur I met Tomwell at the Shrine of Lagoma and we seemed to hit it off pretty well. He has vivid dreams and composes music. He's considering a major life change and visiting the shrines of each of the thirteen to ask for guidance. I hope he finds what he's looking for.
Barric A very talented musician and singer, cares for his family a lot, which is very good. His comments on fighting are always humorous though and that is a powerful thing, the ability to entertain and make people laugh.
Berenice A delightful nobleman turned delightful priest! At least he kept the important parts. Well, except for the title. He lost that, didn't he?
Bliss Ah, my fellow Devotion, so much like me in so many ways. I will make his hat mine. Even if the one I already have is better.
Cadenza Such a kind man and so helpful. I do hope I get to talk with him again; it was nice to get some things off of my chest about my trip.
Coraline I am so happy to see my cousin again! And not as a child this time! He sounds so intelligent, hopefully I dont sound like a meathead to him.
Cristoph Things are a bit strained between House Leary and House Laurent, but I found Tomwell to be good company on a day that I otherwise was not enjoying. Maybe if we're lucky things can be smoothed out in time.
Delilah Such a blithe spirit lifts the soul and brightens thoughts. I don't know I have seen him frown often. Upon our limited opportunities for interaction, Tomwell has always shown a brighter aspect to the world. Something to be grateful for -- those suns shining among the populace can be few and far between.
Echo A singer, performer, and wonderful acquaintance. He's very cheerful and optimistic, which is exactly the kind of thing we need in these trying times.
Emily A delightful sort of attitude that is easily made into a confidante. Strange that. I would most definitely enjoy getting to know him and his musical talent.
Faye I've worked beside him more than once, and I've found him to be very competent. I hope one day we'll actually sit down for a conversation.
Gareth I'm not sure I got his name. He's probably a good lad. I suppose I won't get to know. Well if I'm to inspire anyone, here's hoping he is someone worth inspiring. What a waste that all would've been if not.
Ignacio A grand host and seemly a good man. I would enjoy getting to know the man better.
Iliana He's my brother now too. Fairen has to share, or else I'm going to throw the biggest temper tantrum that involves hurled crockery. Just watch me.
Iliana Tomwell has so much to give, and gives it all. He embraces fun, sits with his fear, loves his family and loves the gods. Every time our duties give us time to meet, he reminds me how fortunate Leary is to have had him in our house, and how lucky I am to still count him as a brother. May I be that lucky for a long, long time to come.
Jeffeth A nice man. Is related to Princess Caith so he must be a good sort.
Jev A bit standdoffish at first but we fucking won and he chestbumped me like a champ!
Laric He took 'oh, demons are real' much, much better than most people. No flailing limbs or screaming slaps. What a pleasant young man.
Mirari This kind man offered to listen to my troubles. Not something I would expect of a Lord, but it was appreciated nonetheless.
Mydas Earnest in his desire to improve the trade situation relating to his barony, and interested in getting involved within the Consortium. I am sure he'll prove to be a worthwhile addition to the Consortium.
Olivia Marquis Leary's brother seems a very pleasant sort, and was absolutely adorable with his lady friend. Some shared interest in gardening gives Olivia plenty to talk about with the both of them, and perhaps an excuse to plot getting them lost in the woods!
Ophelia I think I brightened his day a little! Probably because we were talking about archery and archery /always/ makes people happy. That has to be it!
Perronne What a charming priest, and playwright, and composer! He seems very kind and friendly, and not afraid to have a little fun. I think if I were to need a godsworn, he would be a very good person to go to!
Reigna How different from your brother. Kind, thoughtful and an artist! I admit, I like you and I hope that the future can see our Houses repair the rifts between them.
Rhea What a poor man! He seems OVERWORKED, a bit UNHAPPY and he asks a PRIEST for advice. Recommendation: two months in Setarco.
River Was very intellectual wonderful conversationalist.
Sabella A wonderful playwright who has now become godsworn! But who hopefully will still be using his immense talents in his new calling!
Saoirse A man who can keep up with Caith. Oh my.
Simone I found him to be a gentle and intelligent man. Our conversation was both interesting and thought-provoking. I truly look forward to speaking to him again.
Sunaia A very busy fellow. But he maintains good cheer even while busy, and seems genuinely friendly...which makes him an opposite to me.
Tikva A sweet, duty-minded young man who plays music. Also, he gave me a pretty epic potato.
Vanora A Devotion of Limerance, he seemed friendly and warm. I'd be interested in speaking with him further, and sooner rather than later.
