Lord Vasile Corvini
Do not seek to win, as all defeated generals do. Instead, set every path so that victory is inevitable.
Description: He's a rather large man, tall and well-built with cold, icy blue eyes surveying the world with a constant casual vigilance. His light brown hair is kept cropped tightly against his skull, his jaw typically set with a full beard. Scars can be found here and there, signs of various battles. His wrists are thick and strong, the hands that top them equally well-developed and heavily callused.
Personality: Like many warriors, Vasile has little patience for the usual courtly blandishments and is more inclined to plain speaking. Yet, he has blunted his impetuousness over the last few years, ceasing to rely purely on his native talents. He is more inclined to a quiet reserve and attentive consideration than boasting frankly of his valorous endeavors.
Background: Born to the ruling family of Iasu, Vasile learned early on both the value of valor and the value of cunning. Like the land of his birth, he grew into a hard man, first as a squire, then eventually as a 'knight' (though the Oathlands may scoff at the concept of an Abandoned 'knight').
If a word were to be given to Vasile, it would be resilient. He has led and fought. He was won and he has lost. But with every defeat, he takes time to learn and to study. The harsh land and the consequences of failure have made him aware of the fact that lives rest in his hand every day.
Now, with the death of his father, he has been thrust into the role of primary commander of the Corvini army and is... still grasping at what he might do.
|Alessia||Interesting conversationalist, thoughtful and seems to know a decent amount about the characteristics of animals.|
|Calista||He introduced me to something called Southern Thunder and I fear it will put hair on my chest.|
|Domonico||He is a capable leader, even with only a score of men he proves to be able to utilise them most effectively. I approve.|
|Giulio||New to this, but, he has a solid head on his shoulders.|
|Jenessa||Surprisingly affable with a kindness I didn't expect, but did appreciate. An inquisitive man, to be sure. Time will tell on whether or not I'm wrong about this Southern Lord.|
|Lilia||Using the verbal hole that you walked yourself into as a weapon in conversation is an interesting tactic. If he can use a similar application on the battlefield, then I might believe the Lord Corvini is indeed an excellent general.|
|Lora||The clever crow recognizes when he has misstepped, and when any further progress down a particular path will result only in trouble. I have not yet met a crow that is anything but clever, even this one with his steel feathers.|
|Mabelle||He may be new to the city, but he certainly knows his liquer"|
|Petal||Seems to be a man who is pretty smart about war and the like and who likes to concern with important matters. He probably makes a great General and probably his family is very lucky to have him.|
|Reese||An interesting, intelligent and tricksey general!|
|Sanya||An acquaintance of my cousin. A thoughtful man, I'm intrigued to get into discussions with him int he future.|
|Vicente||Smart fellow who seems aware of his surroundings and how aware of what people need in a situation.|
|Vitalis||An enthusiastic and capable commander of Corvini soldiery. But is that *shadowmeld?*|
|Zoey||A capable commander who is ready lead from the front.|
