Description: This man's very presence quickly communicates a few things: Austerity, dour, stern. Empirically handsome, though his attractiveness may be taken away from, by just the aura of severity that exudes from the young man. A few inches above average height and is of an athletic build, toned muscle but more on the lean side than muscular.
Sun-kissed skin covers the man's unblemished skin, adorned by a mane of light crisp brown hair. The man generally bears a bit of scruff to a well groomed beard, though everything about him is always kept well trimmed and well taken care of.
Personality: Few children have been as severe as Brannen. It seemed he was always of complete understanding and acceptance of his responsibility. Driven, focused, responsible. However there is something about Brannen that separates him from most of his dour compatriots. Brannen is not one to look down upon carefree, jovial, or happy-go-lucky types. Brannen loves them, like his twin sister. However Brannen has always understood that beacons of happiness and creativity cannot fully protect themselves, he sees himself as a guardian of beauty of the world and someone has to be a little bit boring to protect such things. It might as well be Brannen.
Though he is not the most charming, Brannen knows how to lead. He may not be well liked, but he is respected by those under his command. A true stalwart, Brannen may be seen by many as a dullard, though the man truly can respect a well crafted joke or prank, however he is more focused on his duty and making sure the Right Thing is done. Brannen lives his life for honor and the Gods, he is constantly prepared to make the necessary sacrifices to protect what he loves.
Background: Born along with his twin, Bree, Brannen Harthall had his life set out since he was born. He never questioned the life put out for him. Never for a moment. Early in his years it was decided when Brannen was of age he would lead the forces of Harthall. He would train in the martial arts and become a respected commander. And he sure did. Brannen is very much an Oathlander. Conservative, stern, driven, bound by honor, and a tad humorless. Ever since he was a boy Brannen understood the importance of his duty and what he would need to take on over the years.
While Bree took to fighting, Brannen took to command. He was still an excellent warrior, but it did not take long for him to earn the respect of the Harthall soldiers. Bree often would complain to him how she wanted to be out on the road, serving Gild, being a Knight of Solace. Brannen kept them grounded. To duty.
But one day, tragedy struck. The heir to their house was killed in a horse race while both Bree and Brannen were present. Brannen informed the Harthalls that Odhran mismanaged his saddle and as a result died of it. Brannen Harthall in a moment of misery over his fallen cousin left with Bree Harthall. The twins became Godsworn and dedicated themselves to the Knights of Solace.
Brannen has arranged himself in the Knights of Solace, aiming to be a martial force as well as a keen commander of the Knights.
