Titles: Count of Pearlspire

Description: Large and in charge, everything about this man is larger than life. Strongly built and thickly muscled, he has a booming voice, and he's clearly as strong as an ox. His brown skin is slightly weathered, indicating an active life lived outdoors, and smile lines appear whenever he is happy. Despite his visible power and bulk, he moves with a hunter's dexterity. His hands are strong, equally capable of powerful force as they are of holding the most fragile of objects without causing harm.

Personality: Orrin is in many ways larger than life. While he can spot artifice, he has no patience for it, and is deeply protective of his people as well as their freedom - which makes sense, as the majority of his County's population are descended from, or actually are former thralls. His nature tends to default toward being relaxed and easygoing, quick to laugh and preferring friendship over fighting, but when it comes to his duties and obligations as Count, he has razor sharp forcus and will become dead serious in a blink. Having been widowed some years ago, while he has no problems finding company as suits him, he is starting to long once more for a true partner.

Background: Orrin has known all of his life that he would assume the Countship of Pearlspire. And as such, he concluded that as long as he learned what he needed to know to do best by his people, what was the point in worrying? He lived a rather contented life, marrying young and siring two children. Content to lead his people and devoted to maintaining peace - even if it meant going to war - his life went into upheaval upon the death of his wife occurred while his children were in their teens. He's spent these last few years focused on his children and guiding his County.

  • Name Summary
    Aethan Ian likes him, which is already a point in his favor -- and hearing him in the talks with Crovane, I can see why.
    Ajax An older man, nice enough to let a commoner cut in on a dance with a Princess, I like this man. I like him a lot.
    Alaric I'm not sure that the Count was ready. I am sure he will be better prepared to put up with me next time!
    Alarissa I have had the pleasure of meeting more than a few Seliki's but it is, with no doubt, a pleasure to have met the Count himself. He is a man to whom still waters run very deep. I look forward, hopefully, to working with the man and to a relationship between our houses in the future. We both are, after all, embraced by the sea.
    Alessia A fine drinking companion, I wish him well with his newborn.
    Amari The Count sort of reminds me of a very big bear. While not something to be feared, exactly, you still shouldn't poke him with a stick and definitely don't get between him and his cubs. Treat him with all due respect and he'll reply in kind.
    Amund Takes a strong man to break one's hand on a dummy and not howl in pain and rage. Might be an excellent sparring partner. Next time, hopefully.
    Aonghus A very astute and shrewd man. But happily also speaks plainly with out condescension. I respect him, if not like the man a little better now.
    Athaur A man with a great deal on his mind. He wants to do good by his people, even those who are not under his leadership. I cannot falt that.
    Beatrice A good authority named him charming, and I have found ample evidence to support it.
    Bhandn And now you know what I've started sounding more like she did, before she did. You haven't changed a bit, though.
    Carita Oh, Count Orrin, though our meeting was brief, he left an impression on me that lasted. I can see now that Pearlspire is fortunate indeed to have the likes of their Count.
    Caspian The man has honeysweet words! I always enjoy a person who flatters me. Too bad we didn't meet sooner, he could have been my patron!
    Delilah He's as changeable as the sea and steadfast as stone. Lord Orrin has an uncommonly wise touch about him, but beware the streak of humour that suddenly shows itself from time to time. A welcome acquaintance!
    Dio Pragmatic and far-sighted, he seems to be a man willing to act on his principles.
    Domonico This man cares. It's clear to see that and his confusion and vulnerability show a side to this Count that I doubt is often seen.
    Emrys The Count and his wife were kind enough to make up for my contribution where conversation was concerned.
    Eshra Not as I had come to expect of Lords of the Compact. He hold the stature and look of a man who has hardness and hardwork, though the words and manner speaks of a soul that understands gentleness and and laughter. Perhaps the most dangerous man I have met since entering this city.
    Evaristo The father of Joscelin's patron - he's interesting and wants to talk to me about something. Sea related, perhaps? Either or, I look forward to it.
    Evonleigh As perfectly mannered, warm, and friendly, though I am sure to his enemies, he is a formidable opponent. I am glad we are on the same side.
    Fianna A father through marriage and someone that I can trust and depend on. I want nothing more than to strengthen the bond between our Houses and to make him proud.
    Gabriel Orrin Seliki has been one of my staunchest allies and my most unflagging supporters, but it is his friendship which I most treasure. It gives me joy to see him find happiness.
    Galatea A cordial and polite sort. Needs poetry, apparently, but not for himself! I do wonder if he'll make good on his threat to send his child my way.
    Grady A welcome addition to the meal, it's good to see him again. The Count leads an excellent and loyal house full of intelligent people, and that makes their company always a pleasure.
    Hickson The leader of a noble House dedicated to justice, and an excellent host.
    Ian Steady. Probably a good drinking partner.
    Imogene Strength of character aligned with equally strong principles. An explosive combination, perhaps, but something to be respected.
    Joscelin I see where Kaldur gets his vivacious attitude.
    Josephine The Count of countless pearls. Though I find him far more enjoyable than the oyster spit his lands produce.
    Jyri A warrior and a man of patience. Thinks first, acts later I imagine, but when he acts? I wouldn't want to be in his way.
    Kaia The Seliki Count; an amicable man, my best friend's dad who is always well dressed!
    Kaldur His pride in Peri and me has always been a source of strength. He hasn't been the same since mother died, though.
    Lailah Count Seliki seems like a pleasant man, likely a great asset to Deepwood.
    Mabelle Such a kind man. Very loving to his family, it seems. We need more like those.
    Malcolm Seems like a fellow that's worth getting to know. Kind of stormy personality though -- needs to breathe more, I think, and hit things not so hard.
    Malesh He leads House Seliki with an eye towards keeping his people free, and given how industrious they'e proven that is to our betterment.
    Marisol The Count has suffered but is a strong and stalwart figure.
    Martino A strong but clearly agile Count from Pearlspire. With such a diverse group within his House - truly patient and understand as well. This much can be read on just his face.
    Maru Every bit his father's son. Our house has never been in better hands.
    Merek A man that knows his way in being a leader! He does what he can for being right!
    Michael A good man, a....decent fighter. I should pay him and the Seliki House some attention. They deserve it.
    Mikani A Count who has a really awesome ship platform. Will have to pick his brain someday.
    Mirk Count Seliki is a damned good tactician. I can see the resemblance to the other members of his family, but this one seems a little more serious. In a situation like that, I was glad for it.
    Modi The man's past is rooted in strife and a struggle for freedom. I can see it in his eyes that his ancestors had the fortitude to stand against their oppressors and that the fire has carried on. May he lead his house to greatness.
    Niklas The Count of the Pearlspire has some very impressive children.
    Orathy 'n I thought I had a shit name... Pearlspire. Aye, must inspire a great many. Hah! Reckon though, this feller's weakness is the Great Roads boy.
    Petal Sometime wears common clothing and i in the company of Scythia. I don't know him well or barely at all, but he seems like an okay kind of Count. He dances too!
    Pharamond I know that my family has some folks who are very fond of the Selikis. I'm pleased to have helped in his lands and to have seen how skilled the Count of Pearlspire is in the arts of war. Remind me not to lay siege to him any time soon.
    Reese The Count of Selikis! He sails which is really no surprise at all. Seems like a thoughtful and well spoken man. Likely makes for a great Count.
    Ronja Does every noble wedding involve a literal treasure chest of rum being handed out? Or is Lord Orrin a figure of singular character?
    Rysen Kind, intelligent and courteous, this man seems an excellent leader, and someone worthy of respect.
    Sabella Stately and yet also a warm and proud father of his children. While we might not see eye-to-eye on all political matters, it is a joy having him attend our monthly family dinners!
    Samantha A thoughtful nobleman with a fair degree of questions and propositions. Sharp, thoughtful and a credit to his house.
    Shard Father of Peri. Seems calm, reasonable, polite, and not an idiot. Nice of him to offer a stiff drink.
    Sorrel The Count Seliki is quite the family man, and though I wonder at his willingness to start over with babies when his daughter is already an adult, it does speak well of his affection for his young wife.
    Sparte A capable leader to all appearances, quick to think on his feet when given the unexpected and respond diplomatically. Shame he lacks Peri's hair.
    Thea He is a commanding man. Watching him and his daughter, I can see how they are a force.
    Thomas I had not had the chance to meet Lord Seliki before our journey to the Isle, and I am sorry this is so. His grim competence and incomparable leadership are endlessly impressive, especially in the face of vileness.
    Turo Thoughtful. Wrong on the matter of thralldom, but at least he's thoughtful.
    Vanora It's hard to get the measure of a man who you meet at his own wedding, yet the Count Seliki seems warm and amusing, and devoted to making Scythia happy. Good things all.
    Victus The Count is an older man and he's been fighting this war for decades. I hope he does not die soon. He would like the new future.
    Zoey He's been there my entire life, like another uncle. Warm and affectionate to those whom he loves.
