Lord Dariel Bisland
I know, I know. I have the kind of personality that makes it really hard to survive.
Description: Dariel's hands have never seen a hard day's work. They are neither marred by callous nor scar. They've certainly never wielded a sword. Fact of the matter is, it'd be pretty difficult to get a grip on one while wearing all of those dazzling rings! His overall dark features are masculine and influenced by a lifetime of pampering. The young man's firm, narrow jawline works to offset the soft curvature of his full lips, the loveliness of his eyelashes, and that ever feeling gaze of his -- forever lost in a whirl of abstract emotion.
Personality: Lord Dariel Bisland's concerns are mainly aesthetic in nature. This might come off as very silly or trivial when compared to the dutiful glory-hounding of the rest of his kin... which is an incredibly hurtful thing to say and exactly why he's locked himself away in his rooms and refuses to come out ever again!
Background: Dariel is the progeny of Lady Kimbrielle Bisland -- cousin to the Regent Emeritus and Duke of Pridehall -- and Lord Darius Bisland nee Melaeris. The match was one quietly established as a means of funneling support into the isolated House Melaeris in recognition of their longstanding resistance to the practice of thralldom ...and probably also just another way of getting some jabs in at Donrai.
Far removed from the ducal line of succession, Lord Dariel has had the privilege of riding the coattails of Bislands greater than himself ...and it shows. The only sense of duty he's ever felt obligated to fulfill has been that of his beauty regimen, which he (very selfishly) refuses to share with anybody else. If there is a flower blooming in the gardens that are House Bisland... it's Lord Dariel.
Dariel's flock of admirers and penchant for catering to an audience came on fast. As such, 'celebrity' has always been the name of the game. Being a big fish in a little pond has been fun and all, but -- bored now, the serial headliner has set out from his childhood home of Pridehall. You're welcome, Arx.
|Amir||It's always a pleasant experience to have a moment with cousin Dariel. He's easy to talk to and...GODS DAMMIT! Why is there STILL GLITTER EVERYWHERE?|
|Arcadia||Handsome, interesting and free. I look forward to seeing how swollen his ego is.|
|Artur||Dariel makes quite the impression! He's got a reputation as a beauty and I'm hardly one to argue. We ended up having fun teasing Lord Domonico at the baths.|
|Artur||A performer, artist, and carrier of glitter! He seems friendly and forward, I look forward to seeing him perform sometime!|
|Austen||Impressively stylish, very polite.|
|Cahal||Surprisingly quiet for an actor. I could see the pride he has in his fame as a performer though.|
|Caspian||He seems like a nice enough sort. Hope I get to know him better.|
|Catalana||An actor. And he's just gorgeous. An absolute gentleman through and through.|
|Dante||Apparently the finest actor in Arx who makes all of the ladies swoon. That's a talent either enviable or a lot of trouble. Both, likely. Pleasant company though, and understands what it is like to be the Sword with a sword.|
|Delfina||A charming young man to share a coffee with and some conversation. He seems to have a wicked sense of humor, which usually makes for entertaining company.|
|Delilah||A poet's heart and an actor's spirit inside the refined, leonine exterior of a Bisland. Properly motivated, he is going to be a force to reckon with.|
|Domonico||A slender young man who professes not to know how to fight and claims to be an actor. Currently I'm not quite sure what use he can be.|
|Grazia||A pleasant young man with a taste for the arts and some affection for my Sword, Lady Miranda Rubino. I shall watch to see what sort of promise he may have.|
|Gregory||As far as I can see he is a calm and pleasent man given to playfulness. As an actor cast in a main role, he must be quite skilled. I should see him perform.|
|Jasher||Not many men can accept their fate with dignity. Lord Dariel seems to be one of those few.|
|Kaia||My celebrity cousin; I'm so glad to have him with us in Arx!|
|Korka||A man who claims to have an impressive collection of gifted wine he never drinks. Someone should clearly gift him a corkscrew.|
|Lilia||A charming man. I've not met many who admit to being actors, especially those of noble blood.|
|Lucita||An amusing actor who is betrothed to my friend. He seems amicable, confident and dotes on Miranda, which makes several points toward a good impression on me.|
|Lysander||Unwaivering in dedication to culture is exactly as a man should be.|
|Malcolm||Lord Dariel's some kind of really well-known actor. He's got it all - looks, charisma, and a good sense of humor. Seems like good folk.|
|Martino||He's still learning to really apply that charm, but you know he has it. Raw, Young lad is certainly one to keep an eye on - and stylish|
|Miranda||Could be that he shall be my new partner-in-crime! An actor to boot. Could be an interesting person to know!|
|Peri||He seems very impish. I wish I had the wit for his clever pranks. Mine are so simple by contrast.|
|Petal||Thought, charming and interested in fine clothing|
|Quintin||A very hard-working Lord with an interest in theatre.|
|Reese||interesting, from an interesting family and has a lovely name. I hope to hear him sing or act one day. He is charming and has a nice way of speaking. Sounds intelligent.|
|Renata||Eloquent, and with a keen sense of humour. I would probably have found him easy to talk to, had I not needed to leave quite as soon as I did.|
|Sabella||A theatrical Bisland! It's about time! I mean, Lumen is a Whisper so she doesn't count. I look forward to seeing him in one of Nik's productions!|
|Sabella||Lord Dariel is not only an amazing actor, but he has a sharp mind and is just a lovely conversationalist! I always look forward to seeing him whether it's on stage or in a coffee shop!|
|Thea||An actor. He sounds smart. I admit I'm somewhat curious about him. Time will tell I'm sure.|
|Zoey||My dear cousin, so used to getting his way. I love you, but you're spoiled.|
