Hair Color: Black

Captain of the Hawk Guard of House Malvici
Description: Standing at six feet, four inches tall, Artorius is certainly of a tall stature. He sports shoulder length black hair, with a light beard and blue eyes reminiscent of the ocean. During most of the seasons, he remains a fair pale complexion, but darkens in the summer to a tan. His strong, athletic physique seems to naturally counter his handsome visage to even standard With a strong bearing in his walk, he carries himself like the noble knight he is. He possesses classic, simple features such as his arched eyebrows, ordinary lips, an unnoticeably small nose with a very normal ridge. Previous battles have given him a single scar that rides from a tad over his left jawline down to his collarbone on the same side, which bears a charm of its own.
Personality: Artorius is a quiet and kind young man. He prefers to be active and attentive, that is until he is with his family. He is often found with a sword in his hand, taking his call to the life of a soldier very seriously. Despite his kind and loving nature, a trait he shares with his sister Caelis, he possesses a fiery temper when provoked. It takes a great deal to stoke the flames of his temper but once they ignite they are hard to douse. Above all else, he values loyalty to his family and remains very protective of his kin.
Background: Artorius grew up in Southport along with the rest of his Malvici cousins and his sister Caelis. Like all who grow up in this regimented military meritocracy, he easily found his way to the sword. Childhood was fairly easy for him, but that all changed during the Tor-Southport war. Not quite old enough to fight, and not young enough to forget, Artorius was permanently shaped by the events of that conflict.
As time moved on and Artorius' travels eventually lead him to the southern end of the Gray Forest, where he had the fortune to run into a Lady Victoria Ashford. She with her sly passionate way about things seemed to lure him in almost immediately. It wasn't long before the two of them were wed. Their marriage was blessed with a child shortly thereafter. A little girl they named Serah. Only two years after Serah's birth, Lady Victoria Ashford contracted an illness and died. Her death left Artotius absolutely heartbroken.
He wandered Arvum for a few years, coming home to visit with his daughter as often as his broken heart would allow. It was only when he had heard his sister was called to help the Malvici family in Arx that he too decided it was time to pick up his blade in service of the family once more. Taking Serah with him this time, her journeyed to Arx in hopes of making a difference on the Compact's war efforts.
