Lord Benvolio Corvini
One day men will look back, and they will say that I gave birth to the next century.
Description: Benvolio enjoys the trappings of his family's wealth and access to fashion in Arx. He prefers the ostentatious and colorful, and is never far from a sword or dagger. Benvolio wears a mane of long hair, left wild when possible, or bound to look presentable. His bright green eyes give him a sharp gaze.
Personality: Benvolio is alternatively ruthless and lazy. While not ambitious, and content to permit his elder brothers and sisters to dictate the course of family affairs, he is a loyal and effective footsoldier. He is hedonistic and enjoys the trappings of wealth, including bright fashionable clothes, shiny new weapons, or fine horses.
Background: One of the later scions of the ruling family, Benvolio was squired and eventually became a trained knight. Prior to the legitimization of House Corvini, Benvolio led a gang of street thugs in Iasu that served as the family's enforcers. Known for drinking, womanizing, and dueling in the streets, Benvolio has been since forced to tone down his activities to avoid negative attention to a family barely regarded as civilized.
Officially Benvolio now serves as the commander of the unit of household soldiers accompanying Ilinca to Arx to negotiate the terms of the family's new position in the Covenant.
