Sir Andry Bayweather
Focus. Work the problem.
Social Rank: 7
Concept: Crafty Knight
Hair Color: Brown
Eye Color: Gray
Description: Toned and slender, this man's size suggests, average, or just above! Of average height and a build that suggests exhaustive activity but not heavily musceled to be sure. His muscle is toned and lithe, someone that favors agility far more over brute strength. His skin is sun kissed, scars dotting his lean body from head to toe. He has a handsome boyish charm about him, often keeping a touch of brown scruff resembling a beard along his jaw and lips. His hair is of the appearance to be messed and as if no attention was given to it when very likely, there was a degree of effort there. His gray eyes often blur between hazel and very light blue depending on the light.
Personality: Andry is a survivor first and foremost. While other Knights may look down on this attitude, being more self sacrificing and 'noble' Andry hasn't lived as long as he has that way. He's done it by making the right choices to put him and those closest to him first. Yes there's ideals, there's the Gods who obviously come first, but there's always a way to make sure there is still a way to advance. Andry is always planning. There's always an angle, he casts wide nets to get involved with a great many projects, giving favors reaps favors, after all. Andry tries to keep up good relations with everyone he meets, you never know when they might be useful. He's a careful meticulous planner who makes sure to have his fingers in as many pies as possible and his sharp eye and wit to help out those in need. He is deeply pragmatic, and while his true loyalties only belong to a select few, he views them as an extension of himself. While he's a deep thinker, relying heavily on his mental skills, he is also given to bouts of passion and emotion which can sometimes be his greatest bane. Leaving him often perplexed at himself the night before, trying to figure out how to get out of this pickle.
Andry also likes to use his keen mind for practical jokes. It is often a way to show those he cares for he has a deep love for them. Intricate, meticulous but ultimately harmless pranks being the tops.
Background: Another day, another orphan, another life into the Lowers. Perhaps Andry's parents are some line of royalty, perhaps great nobility runs through his blood, perhaps he's a bastard child of a former king, perhaps there's magic in his blood! Or perhaps his parents were just no ones who got ran off or killed and he's just another baby in the Tragedy of the Lowers. One of those being more likely than the others, Andry lived his life with pragmatism. An urchin and an orphan in the Lowers, Andry was quick to learn he couldn't make it alone. Not being a sizeable boy, he was not one who would survive many of the scraps that took place in the Lowers. So he found himself a big boy, an older boy, and endeared himself to him. Jeffeth Bayweather. The two took on the same surname, both of them without real families, two orphans decided they could be their own family.
With Andry's wit and Jeffeth's brawn the two were able to survive the lowers and grow well enough. While Jeffeth was swayed by the stories of the Knights Solace, Andry made sure they had solid connections to the Cullers, a family with known criminal connections in the Lower Boroughs. He always appreciated the thought of just taking what you want in this world. And so he made sure to endear himself to the Cullers, that they would look upon him kindly. But when his adoptive brother became a fully Godsworn knight, Andry wasn't far behind.
Becoming Godsworn meant a life being taken care of. Of course he had to become a bit more in tune with the Gods that he was originally inclined, and eventually he took a great liking to Gild. Feeling more of a kinship with the Goddess than he expected. While still much was expected of Andry, it was never very hard for him. Looking after his pocket of trusted individuals, Andry became a well known Knight of Solace, famed for his keen eye and sharp wit as well as the edge of his blades. Andry is always sure to keep those he is close to happy and safe. While they may be on either side of the tracks, Andry feels deeply indebted to both the Cullers and the Knights of Solace. Though now, his duty is to protect those who could not protect themselves.
And hey, make some money on the side.
