Description: A beast of a man stands tall and well-built. His bronzed skin speaks of his days spent under the southern sun, as well as the hours dedicated to his task at the forge. His callused and slightly burnt hands echo such a tale. His dark brown hair is often pulled back into a ponytail. His face is framed by a thick but well-tended beard.
Personality: A people pleaser and a charmer like most Donatti. Alfio, often, finds himself getting involved in the business of others, and, generally, trying to find a way to help them while benefiting himself. He is, much like his siblings and kin, a determined, cunning, hardworking and ambitious man eager to prove his finesse and make himself known in the world.
Background: Born and raised in the city of Southport, Alfio was the middle child of three siblings. His mother passed away after giving birth to his youngest brother, and his father was pretty much absent --spending most of what he earned on drinks. Practically an orphan, just like his siblings, he did whatever he could to survive.
During his formative years, Alfio found he had great skill for pickpocketing. He relied upon such a thing for most of his youth; until his ambition took him to Waldemai's forge. Awe struck by the craftsmanship and detail put into both armor and weapons, he gave into temptation and tried to sneak out a dagger from the blacksmith's shop; however, luck failed him and he got caught.
After being scolded and questioned, the young one was presented with two choices: Either return the dagger, lose a finger, and face prison time for theft; or, earn the dagger through hard work, by learning an honorable craft and assisting Waldemai on the forge. Perhaps luck had not failed him after all.
Having been given this opportunity, Alfio, abandoned his pickpocketing days and apprenticed under Waldemai until mastering his craft. By the time he reached adulthood, he traveled to Setarco, where he was fostered by his extended Donatti kin, and then later on moved on to Caina - where he finally settled. There, with Alexio's financial support, he was able to buy an establishment and make a name for himself as a weaponsmith.
Now with the family business blooming in Arx a new opportunity arises; and, Alfio will not be one to miss out.
