Description: At six feet tall with memorable green eyes, Martino Malvici is someone that few very easily forget. He has the classical good looks of the Arvum aristocracy, which points to excellent breeding. A strong jaw and athletic build does little to detract from this. He has a quick smile and easy about him that works well for the Minister and suits his personality. Its a matter of debate as to whether or not he frequently smells so good due to the women he tends to keep company with or if it is just immaculate hygiene.

(Tightly trimmed hair as been meticulously combed back, swept away and surrounded with a sharp short cut around the back and sides. Likely, as the snow settles, a few flakes of white are caught in it.)

Personality: Saved from a life of martial focus by his mother, Martino understands the value of an education that is non-traditional to the family. While so many of Malvici are more serious as they go about their business, Martino is not afraid to gladhand and laugh with fellow nobles. He serves the House well, though, and he knows that the Ducal leadership of Malvici has their faith well-placed in him. He is just as at home having a mead with a new friend in a dark bar as he is having a serious discussion of political considerations with someone far above his own station. It is of little secret, though, that he is suspicious of fellow Houses in the Lyceum, a fact he attributes to respect for history rather than a current proof.

Background: Raised closely to Eirene, Martino was one of the boys that stood out early for his competence for the blade and use rather than sheer skill with the art. His father had intended for him to become an officer and leader of battlefield formations, but a doting mother directed him, her firstborn, to receive more schooling. He honed his education not just with Malvici but also with other families for as long as six months at a time so that he might study the ways of other families - especially those outside the Lyceum. While he did this, he spent a lot of time playing logic puzzles and learning how to adapt to sometimes difficult circumstances. Knowing how to read a situation became something of a sixth sense to the young man. His mother's instinct paid off in dividends for the man who would grow to not just steward often for the house, but also work as a Minister.

As Martino has gotten older, he has become a weapon of the House. While he tends to have a much more laissez faire attitude contrasting to the somber of Malvici, he has proven to be valuable in that others can and will work through him to help establish diplomatic and political ties to a family that can otherwise be somewhat distant or difficult to penetrate. At the same age as Duchess Calypso, the two are extremely different people but there does seem to be a respect built there because despite his playboy attitude, there is a reason he is still a recognized representative of the House.

Relationship Summary


Family:
  • Miranda - My second cousin, younger. Sometimes wise beyond her years, strongly independent while needing protecting. Who knows...
  • Calypso - My second cousin and our Duchess. Has led our family and Southport during some of the hardest times and for that. There will always be respect.
  • Thea - My sister. Youngest. Expert blocker and sponge of /my/ fun. Although still fun. A bit of me, a bit of Domonico. My side in her is the best.
  • Domonico - My brother, younger. Firm in thought and deed. Needs to be reminded that being the middle doesn't mean oldest and youngest isn't there to help.
  • Fiora - Complex? I mean that is the best catch all word I could use to describe the Voice of House Malvici. I /think/ I saw her smile once. Maybe.

  • Oathlands:
  • Mabelle - So very helpful when we were trying to find peace between our vassals

  • Lyceum:
  • Danae - Supply Officer to the Malvici forces. So resourceful and useful at getting anything in or out of a place. But so painfully stiff. One day you'll drink wine with me without saying 'My Lord' after each sentence.
  • Arman - Elder Statemen is a clearly impressive man which so much experience, wisdom and gravitas behind every word. Every action. Goals.
  • Ishmael - I am unimpressed by you and your affection for saying something contrary and then leaving the room soon after. You were wrong the first time, second and and will be on the third.

  • Protege:
  • Elise - Excitable young Whisper, unlike others she is quick with the blade and happy to put her Lord on the ground. Must help control her need to charge forth.

  • Friend:
  • Selene - The Radiant Emeritus has been truly helpful in diplomatic matters for House Malvici and I. Making the connections while holding all the graceful charm you would expect of one of the most famous or all Whispers.
  • Angelo - One of my childhood friends when growing up. The trouble we would get into, cause and the hearts we would break. A delight to see him in the city again.

  • Crownlands:
  • Kaia - Somehow (well I know how - and you know how) I have become quite wonderfully obsessed to the most perfect Lady
  • Arcardia - Absolute trouble.
  • Malcolm - Trying his best to always improve. When I first met him, was so ill-trained. Now? He only chews with his mouth open sometimes.
  • Olivia - My Lady Kaia's First Maid for the wedding. The whirlwind of disaster and poor taste in men, supposedly. Livie, stop it.
  • Name Summary
    Ahmar Another Malvici. This one looks like he goes to war with his words, but then again. I haven't seen him fight either. Maybe he can do both?
    Ajax A lord who seems more relaxed then his brother. Good on em'
    Alessia A charming man of House Malvici, I do enjoy his company.
    Amari The Malvici who smiles, as he introduced himself. I didn't know there was such a thing, but the world is better for such a lovely peculiarity, I think.
    Arman A polite and welcoming man who has the social grace to easily embrace the company of a stranger without diminishing the conversation already in progress. Articulate and holds political potential in his words that if fostered could lead him beyond his position as a minister into the great sea of Arvum politics on the whole.
    Armani Courteous and spoken like a gentleman, perfectly Velenosa.
    Bethany Love matches seem to be more and more common.
    Brady Well dressed, well-spoken, and a snazzy dancer. Seems like someone to aspire to be.
    Braith He seems rather fun, eager and mischievous. He is going to make a lovely husband ..a fun husband for some lucky noblewoman. I have a feeling he has an adventurous spirit below all the airs most of us wear.
    Brigida Still thinks he is a smooth talker and he can get around me with words. He has a lot to learn.
    Cahal In a room full of people he was one of the more memorable. Its going to take more time to work out exactly who he is.
    Cambria Unmistakably Malvici in looks. As is to be expected, he is also a gentleman. It was good to chance across him.
    Cerdensulathara Older, better, wiser? Two out of three is still an accomplishment.
    Dante A man ready to take bets for pool games is a man who knows how to enjoy such parties to their fullest. Till we meet again!
    Dariel Handsome, charming, friendly and far less stoical than his brother.
    Delilah Without a doubt, one of the most social and gregarious of the Malvicis. Thus, one to be watched.
    Domonico My brother returns to the city and of course manages to find something new to torment me about. I have missed him.
    Donato Far more charismatic and fun than his brother, he's still kind of old in his advice. I understand what he's saying, and often it's true. But not always, and this is one of those exceptions.
    Erik The bookish of the Malvici, I look forward to the opportunity of having a deeper conversation with him, so I may know his opinion and knowledge about some more complex subjects.
    Eshken Friendly and well spoken, for the short time we had. Looking forward to speaking again, though perhaps too trusting.
    Evangeline Lord Malvici is quite agreeable and a wonderful companion. He does take his coffee black, though.
    Evaristo All around Lord, pleasant company, inviting and social.
    Fianna We met at Companion Park and I sense that he is good with animals, a trait that I find quite admirable in friends.
    Fiora Cousin Martino. He might have started a little flirty, but at least he's not like Domonico. This is a cousin I might like. We'll see, I guess.
    Gawain He had a very fine bathing suit and was a pleasure to share the pools with at the Hart!
    Giada Poor man... Nice enough, but so fussy about his clothes.
    Giuliano A laid-back Malvici, understands the importance of looking good and having a great time. I'll certainly speak to him more.
    Gretchen He has some interesting ideas on additions to the spa. Some of them I might actually implement!
    Helena Quite charming and clearly a lover of all things beautiful and refined, be it music, fabric, wine, or company.
    Iliana We didn't speak much, but he seemed good-tempered - and a betting man, so he must be good fun.
    Ishmael A flashy lord, of the Malvici If memory serves. I am certain he is a great asset to his house.
    Jasher The less serious of a serious group of Malvici peers. Still, only a fool will interpret irreverence as incompetence.
    Jennyva Don't tell him I said this, but his smile could light up Arx after dark; enough to drive a saint to madness or a Queen to her knees. But I mean... he seems fun!
    Kaia Domonico's eldest brother. He's quite handsome and stylish. A charming lord, bearer of honeyed words. I must be weary of this one; he seems fun, but the sort of fun which generally leads to trouble.
    Kenna He spoke up with matters of trade. I do hope that such can be followed through upon to the benefit of all.
    Korka A delightfully charming Lycene lord who is politically minded, but still charming.
    Lailah Lord Martino is friendly, cheerful and perhaps a bit too eager to please. Still, no doubt a good person to befriend.
    Liara However brief the encounter, he still had enough time to strike me as polite and charming.
    Lucita A brother of Lord Domonico and part of the Malvici fealty of which Saik is a vassal. He seems interested in current events and people, getting to know them and enjoys wine.
    Lycoris Lord Malvici seems as competant at politics as much as his brother Lord Domonico is with the sword. I look forward to seeing what he is capable of in the near future.
    Mabelle A philantropist for the fairer sex, what's not to like?"
    Magnus A very friendly and welcoming Lycene lord. He has a sophisticated taste for drinks and might help me settle into the city better. Maybe that's the kind of company I need now.
    Marisol Lord Martino certainly did try to stand against those who had a stronger constitution than he did. Well done and at rather pleasant Lord. I think he is courting the Lady Kaia? I wish them both the very best.
    Merek I haven't heard of spas for a while, a bit different than I remember. But this noble was kind to invite me to relax.
    Miranda Love seeing my second-cousin. Of course, he caught me just before I could be up to no good. And then helped me get into mischief! Malvicis. Gotta love 'em.
    Mirari Not very much like his brother, but great company.
    Ouida An intriguing lord of the Malvicis, and a welcome perspective that is relatable. I doubt that we agree on all, but there is strength for both in the discussion.
    Petal He seems like a friendly and well spoken Lord
    Quintin Another fine Malvici who can hold his brandy better than I can, certainly. I'll have to take him up on that invitation to visit.
    Raimon Another Malvici. Apparently this one is stylish
    Reese A polite Lord from an interesting family. I would like to learn more about him.
    Ronja Smooth. Very smooth. So smooth he makes you forget how smooth he's being. Good company for a drink, too.
    Rukhnis An excellent dance instructor, to whom I am actually quite thankful for teaching such exotic dances so well.
    Rysen A lord of impeccable taste whose ability to teach the art of dance while making his students feel comfortable is second to none.
    Sabine He navigates a shifting landscape with ease-- no great surprise, for a man born to his station, his blood, his place in life. The violin was a mild surprise, of course.
    Salvador A Malvici lord I met at the Ambassador Salon, he is an interesting fellow to converse with, showed some curiosity as to my projects, though I'm not entirely sure what he does for his family, or if he is just something of a wastrel.
    Sparte I wasn't sure what to make of the man when he showed up with bits of pastry on him, but it looks like battle scars earned in well-meaning play. A member of the Salon too! I think I'll like him.
    Talwyn Well-mannered and the picture of etiquette, Lord Martino made for a wonderful conversationalist and admirer of the arts. Certainly someone to talk to more and befriend - plus, he plays the violin!
    Tescelina A Malvici Lord. Everyone assumed he did not treat his assistant well! But he seemed a polite gentleman. I can't imagine that's true.
    Venturo A gentleman of a Lord, a friend of the Baroness, and a man who both knows his tastes and likes, but is open to new experiments nonetheless. A joy to host.
    Willow He smells nice, he's charming, and he likes orchids. What's not to love?
    Zara A Malvici lord, he wields his charm well in service of his house.
