Social Rank: 8
Concept: Opportunistic Merchant
Hair Color: black
Eye Color: Blue
Description: A mop of curly brown hair falls from atop this man's head in a messy sort of tousle, falling to near his jawline in length. A tanned complexion graces his features, complimenting high cheekbones and a chiseled jawline, as well as contrasting strikingly with the piercing blue eyes that rest beneath two dark brows. A neat and manicured beard graces his face, lending a sophistication to his bearing.
Built solidly, the man stands only a mere 5'9. He is slender, with the build of a runner. And is typically clad in a quality grade of tailored attire, rather than shoddy rags or armor.
(He seems somewhat distracted.)
Personality: An opportunist in near every aspect of life, Alexio will likely try anything once if he thinks that it will help him, or those that he cares about, get ahead. He is a social creature, and thrives in such environments, as opposed to those where brawn is valued over wits. He enjoys the finer things in life, likely because growing up he did not have any of them. As such, he values that which he has and does not wish to see anything go to squander that he has earned or been given him.
Background: Born and raised on the streets of Southport, Alexio was the youngest of three siblings. His mother passed with his birth, leaving his father to raise him and his siblings. Work on the docks of Southport hardly paid well, and the silver that it did pay didn't go far when the first thing on his father's priority list was booze, and not his children.
Alexio and his siblings pretty much raised themselves, for better or worse. With no authority figure at home, it is little surprise that the three children ended up on the streets. Alexio himself developed a certain knack for the acquisition of things he did not have through particularly sticky fingers. As he got more skilled with his thievery, and what he sold became more valuable, he turned to selling the things that he nicked, rather than simply for survival. What started as a means of survival, soon turned into a means of helping himself and his siblings attain the things that had evaded them for so much of their lives.
As he came of age, he learned to use the skills that he had learned on the streets in matters of more legitimate trade, and soon discovered that he had a knack as a businessman. As such, he has made the journey to Arx where he hopes to expand upon his business opportunities and see what he can make of himself.
|Aethan||Usually I'm wary when someone knows my name before I've met them, but I guess I'll let it slide this time.|
|Ajax||A trader, good to know them. He dresses fancy, so, I suppose he's a successful trader.|
|Apollo||He never misses an opportunity, but he's a good friend. I'm glad he's back in Arx.|
|Arcadia||Seems smart. Knows everyone. Hopefully won't rip me off when I buy stuff.|
|Bhandn||I feel like I should be concerned with the company he keeps, given a previous altercation, but I shouldn't judge a man simply by those with whom I see him associating. We shall see.|
|Braden||A merchant and a friend of many it seems. Might be good to know.|
|Braith||Fool you once! Fool you twi...nah that will not happen again sadly. But good fun and despite trying to clobber me with his runaway cart seems to be a good man.|
|Domonico||Ah Alexio is back in town with his deals and banter. I swear he has been practicing as I was tempted by his offers.|
|Evaristo||Soon to be owner of his own ship, merchant, connoisseur of fiery wines, cheerful and funny. I bet he can sell you things you didn't know you needed and be happy as a clam about it. Like the guy!|
|Giada||Huh. Didn't expect to see him here. A rare familiar face.|
|Giulio||Intriguing. It will be most interesting to see how his hand might turn.|
|Josephine||A good boy, a good man. I still like him, even to this day and he can charm the metal from any vendor.|
|Lucita||Someone who deals with procurement of materials from market. Seems quite knowledgeable about them and skillful with negotiating with others. Conversations are quite pleasant and time spent with Alexio was enjoyable.|
|Madeleine||What a charming gentleman! It seems he is a merchant who trades primarily in luxury items. A good man to know should I have need of pretty things to be sure.|
|Maja||He called me famous! And seems to know a bit about me. The fellow appears to be charming -- I need to find out what he's heard and how he heard about it though! How curious! /Literally/ curious!|
|Marisol||What good taste! I will certainly have to seek out his advice on brocade or rather fashion in general again.|
|Martino||The merchant is back, excellent servant to the Malvici. But, truly, their social skills have been missed.|
|Reese||A friend and charming merchant who dresses better than many princes.|
