Description: Many see the mirror of his father when they look at Vitalis. He is tall, with hair as black as pitch and eyes of an unforgiving grey. He tends towards the rangy, however, and his smiles light up his face with a boyish charm, driving the chill from his gaze. Though Vitalis practices an economy of movement, when excited by something he gives into expansive gestures - rather like a one man play.

Personality: Vitalis is one of those rare few who finds himself at home in just about any situation. On the road, travelling with strangers from all walks of life, or rubbing elbows with the highest of Peers in a courtly setting, he adapts himself effortlessly. He is friendly and energetic, but not, and this is important, naive. In fact, Vitalis is rather a shrewd judge of character.

Background: When Vitalis was still very young, his mother was murdered. He does not remember much of her, though sometimes he catches whiff of a floral scent that stirs some faint emotion within him that he associates with the maternal. He knows the story of her passing, and he knows how much her loss hurt his father, but Vitalis never felt lonely. Perhaps because of her death, and perhaps because he was also one of the youngest Mazetti, his relatives were quick to fill the void. It was his grandmother, in particular, that awoke in a young Vitalis a thirst for knowledge and a love of the mysterious.

From his father, Vitalis realized that adventure was to be lived outside the pages of books. So while he pursued his studies, he never once took umbrage at being sent into the countryside to patrol. Eventually he began to organize his own expeditions, ranging off to explore this or that local ruin. Though still young, Vitalis has treated with several of the local tribes of Abandoned, securing passage rites and even, in one spectacular case, saving a chieftain's son and so found himself named a blood-brother with a new friend for life.

Yet as with so many of the Mazetti, home is an undeniable siren's call. The thick, ancient walls of the inner round with its unblinking eyes of faded paint and the grand architectural style of Ostria itself still inspires that original sense of mystery in Vitalis today. And if home is where the heart is, then Vitalis isn't exactly sure if it is one enigma he ever wants to solve.

Name Summary
Aethan Values keeping his allies secure -- an excellent quality to have on any mission.
Agostino An excellent teacher, who was able to make the lesson enjoyable. Perhaps I will be able to convince him to show me more at a later date.
Alessia I'm glad he has returned, it's a joy to have more family around, even under such dour circumstances.
Amari A Lycene full of surprises beneath the wonderfully smooth veneer of congeniality. I wouldn't have expected the concealed whip, anyway.
Apollo A valued customer, with nimble fingers and a nimbler wit.
Appolonia An interesting and somewhat playful man. Seems to know a great deal about the language variances of animals - and serves up an interesting example of them! A curious mind is a good thing to have. I'll have to learn about this one more.
Athaur An interesting man for sure. He appears to be knowledgable though about what I hope to learn more.
Beatrice A dry, welcome, and positively wicked wit.
Belladonna Every dangerous man I have ever known wore his skin comfortably. Those are rare, but always so interesting. I would be surprised not to hear of him, or his exploits, again.
Calaudrin Seems like an alright sort of guy. Sharp eyes, takes notes, kind of funny. Doesn't care about getting hit in the arm. Would travel with again.
Cambria Stoic in the face of loss. I had not wished our reunion to be thus. Yet he sees far. Farther than any of us do, I suspect.
Delilah To meet a man in the grips of sorrow leaves an impression. One of woodsmoke and cutting gin, the soft lament of myrrh mingled among the hot-seared spices that tell such tales in their weighty presence. He showed exquisite, sharp facets of self-control while contemplating mortality. Someone who in better days might be a fast friend.
Denica I wasn't brave enough to volunteer, but I have to admire a man with such skill with a whip.
Domonico A Mazetti Lord and definitely one of good taste, despite being friends with a troublemaker like my cousin. However his appreciation of books is considerable. Someone worth knowing.
Dora A brief meeting at the Reflection Square. I dare say he might have been flirting with me. Not that I mind, I was flirting back. So many lovely people in Arx, I must say. And I do agree, he is a handsom devil.
Duarte Clearly working through some grief and frustration. I hope he recovers soon.
Elgana While we didn't get to speak much at the lantern ceremony, I think that this one is someone worth getting to know. Kind of word and thought, hopefully the future will hold another meeting to get to know each other better.
Faruq A whip? Seriously? Some people have weird ideas as to what's a weapon of war! Brave though, or foolhardy. Either way I like him.
Gianna A young lord who plays the lute and appreciates music properly; charming. Decent plucking technique.
Helena A fellow scholar and seeker of knowledge. His love of opening doors is one I can relate too -- though I doubt I'm a brave as he is, nor as well equipped to handle what might be behind those doors.
Ian Follows orders without arguing. Mostly.
Jeffeth He offered to teach me how to be more quiet. It was an interesting lesson, not what I thought it was going to be. But it turned into something more. He seems a good man. Though the lesson started with him teaching me in a delightfully unexpected turn I got to teach him some things, and maybe will more in the future. I hope he finds what he's looking for.
Juniper A magnificent hat! I'm sure he's quite nice too but really, /that hat/.
Kenna He was quite charming - even though I was not at all the best of companions. I only hope to be able to do better in the future.
Klaus A paragon of a statesman, and well informed. I believe he and I could hold long discourse between one another over brown nut ale or hot spiced wine.
Lou He has come a long way since joining the explorers, and I am proud of the work that he has done. I am sure he will go quite far, in Explorer adventure and our own.
Lucita A person who enjoys music! That means we'll always have something about which to talk even if all else fails, a good thing to remember.
Maja I grabbed his arm when I was standing next to him during Open Throne hours. He was very nice and called me 'dazzled'. I like that! I like him.
Mason Traveling with this man was both refreshing and enjoyable for Mason. He seems to have a healthy sense of humor and the sort of optimistic excitement the Grayson can greatly appreciate while adventuring. He'd gladly travel with the man again.
Merek The man who taught me a bit about legerdemain and how to play with coins. He's a nice nobleman, all in all.
Mikani A man with a lot of stories to tell. Maybe he will tell me another.
Miranda Wow.. Lord Mazetti just.. vanishes out of sight! He is handy to have on an adventure to be sure!
Mirk A Southern lord. Good hand with a whip, and even better at playing a crowd. Worth every silver I offered him, even if it was after the fact.
Monique No, no. He's learning party tricks, that's all. Amazing feats to impress children. Really, it's very noble and commendable.
Niklas A good guy for a good drink. I can't hold being related to Theron against him.
Norwood Well, he was very proper. And apparently plays hide and seek.
Nuala For a southerner, he's got an easy way with words about him. Plenty of flowery expressions, sure, but also useful tidings. One worth watching.
Nurie One of the Mazettis, with a charming demeanor but a most amazing ability to step aside from your attention and then reappear where least expected! Why he could play all sorts of fun tricks on people! Or hide away, if they got angry at him. Perhaps this wouldn't be a terrible thing to study.
Oswyn A young lord who asks a great many questions. Which isn't a bad thing! Far from it, really.
Perronne Well-mannered! Lycene! Did not threaten to poison anyone, and knows when to accept a gift with good grace. I think I like him, and who knows, he might become a client!
Petal regal seeming and from a long noble line. He seems like an alright guy.
Reese He comes from a great family and a great blood line. The son of a great man. He speaks well. He has intense gaze and moves in a different way. I see the subtle signs of greatness in him.
Rowenova I first met Lord Vitalis at Lord Valerio's wake, if only briefly. I heard there that he is a competent scout, just like me. I later saw him at the Spirits at the Beards and Brews II where he pulled off whip tricks with slick grace! He is a talented man!
Roxana Handsome and well dressed, or at least I think so. I was fairly tipsy when we met.
Stygia Another whip wielder that uses it rather unconventionally but at least respects the weapon.
Valdemar A brave, perceptive man with interesting taste in weapons.
Vanora I met him at the funeral for the Marshal of Ostria. He was well spoken even through intense emotion, and I find it admirable.
Verity Handsome devil or striking angel, the man plays with words easily and boldly. A most interesting encounter to have at Reflection square.
