Description: Lasalle isn't quite what you might expect from someone wearing the tabard of a Roseward guardsmen. Sure, he is well proportioned physically for the role with his thickly muscled limbs, but his deep grey eyes seem almost too kind to be capable of meting out the kind of violence the uniform would seem to require, though his hands don't often stray far from the handle of the sword at his. hip. A quiet smile seems to be the default expression for the pale chiseled face that peers from beneath the curly mop of dark blond hair.
Personality: Lasalle is quiet, empathetic and generally a calming presence. He seems to truly care for people and make an effort to see that people are treated fairly. He believes in the value of hard work and has a strong work ethic of his own. His father is a well known craftsman in Roseward and so he has a deep appreciation for talent and skill in the visual arts. His father always told him that regardless of what he chose to be in life, to endeavor to be the best at it. It?s advice he's taken to heart. Justice, equality, truth and beauty are what drive him, and those he feel exemplify these qualities will find a steadfast and loyal friend in him.
Background: Lasalle Fontblanc is the son of well-known craftsman Jeanfi Fontblanc. His mother Sophie died during childbirth, but his father and aunt who came to assist with raising the boy did a more than adequate job. Although Jeanfi threw himself into his work after his wife's passing, Lasalle was never far from the man. Lasalle watched with great interest as his father worked and as he grew he helped where he could. Jeanfi's specialty was creating beautiful, exquisitely detailed, wooden furniture. Although originally from Fortezza di Iriscal, they decided to move to Roseward after the destruction of Volkov in order to be closer to the goldenwood his father preferred to work with. His father's work gained the appreciation of several minor noble families and it seemed Lasalle would follow in his father's footsteps, until they were attacked and robbed while delivering a few pieces in Volkov Woods. The bandits, stole their cart and their horses, leaving them to head back to Roseward on foot. His father's clients tried to ruin his reputation for failing to deliver, but after being provided with the furnishings at a discounted price they allowed for the truth to be known. Lasalle however was changed by the experience. He vowed that he would never allow himself or anyone he could protect to feel that vulnerable again. He enlisted himself in the Roseward guard, and quickly rose through the ranks over the course of the past 6 months. A life of lifting, loading and unloading had provided him with the physique, and a patient and discerning eye for detail lended itself well to the study of strategy and tactics. In the field he is quick to identify any weaknesses in an opponent. He became one of the youngest lieutenants in the Roseward guard and commanded a small unit, that he took on patrols along the trade routes around Roseward. He now has aspirations of knighthood and is beginning to build a name for himself independent of the work of his father.
