Lord Luciano Fidante
What would the sea be without something lurking in the depths? It would be sleep without dreams.
Social Rank: 4
Concept: Knight of Tides
Marital Status: married
Height: average height
Hair Color: sable
Eye Color: hazel
Description: Handsome in a rugged way, with long curly sable hair and a smile that wavers between impish and boyish most of the time. His skin is the well-tanned color of someone that stands beneath the sun on a frequent basis, and his hands are rough from many years on board a ship, but there is a fine-boned quality to them that speaks of someone that may also be gifted with an artistic talent hiding beneath it all.
Personality: There's a saying about men of the sea, and how there are sometimes stories that are vast and unbelievable that they tell. Luciano's not much different. He enjoys spinning a good yarn, having a good time, drinking with his fellow sailors, and plotting the next adventure. But there is also a serious side to him, and when he's on a ship, or in command of sailors, he takes his job seriously, and treats it as the important duty that it is. Fun and games are fine, but only in their right times.
Background: Spare child syndrom was a thing others talked about, not the first born, not in line to anything, a cousin of a cousin, or just a random branch of the family. These were issues that others had, never Luciano. While not being the oldest, or in line for any title or land, he has made the best of his life and has enjoyed every moment of is, and the freedom not having any of those things afforded him.
When he was young he set sail with a distant cousin, working aboard his merchant ship in the short hops between islands, and then back to Tor. His education began there, and it continued there for years to come. He worked his way up in position on the ship, learned how to navigate, to tie knots, to read the temperment of the sea. Eventually he was gifted his own ship, and the title of captain that came along with it. Unlike the ships he served on growing up, he did not turn his hand towards being nothing more than a merchant. He took up arms, he went exploring, went after pirates that would attack merchant ships. He lived the exciting life that one would imagine, both the goods and the bads. With the trials and tribulations that are facing both family, the Lyceum and the Compact as a whole, he has been called to Arx by the current Duchess to pitch in.
