Social Rank: 8
Concept: Calculating Rogue
Marital Status: Single
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Blue
Skintone: Dusky brown
Description: Bright blue eyes gaze forth from beneath a pair of dark brows with an alert inquisitiveness for the world around this man. A dusky tan complexion from hours spent beneath the sun graces a face blessed with high cheekbones and a strong jawline kept clean shaven every morning. He possesses a roguish quality that manages handsome, but there is an undeniable quality about him that speaks of a hunger and intensity fostered by a life of survival. His black hair is worn closely cropped in a neat style.
His attire is simple and functional. A set of darkly colored breeches of a fine leather covers his lower half and are tucked into a set of well worn leather boots, while a dark blue shirt can be seen beneath the leather body armor that covers his chest.
Personality: Aswin could be described by some as cold-blooded and calculating, but the truth of the matter is that he is a creature of extreme discipline and attempted order in a world where so much of his life has been the product of wild circumstance. While his early life in the Lowers was chaos, Aswin learned to channel what order he could over what he had control of... himself. And so he considers his actions, be they in service to his family or in service to himself, carefully. Weighing the probable outcome of each action in an effort to bring about his desired result. Cynical in most cases, Aswin tends to think most matters could be settled with a blade rather than pandering around with lengthy words.
Background: Aswin doesn't really know if he was born an Ulbran, or if he simply fell in with the family around the time that he took his first steps. He has no memories of his mother or his father, they simply were never there. The streets of the Lower Boroughs are a tough place for a child to grow up, especially by themselves, and while his parents were not there the Ulbrans were. Survival became not only possible, but he learned at the instruction of his family how to thrive in the dangerous streets. As soon as he was able, he was put to work as a lookout and pickpocket, the innocence of his youthful appearance presenting an opportunity that was not to be wasted. And then by the time that he entered into his teens he was being trained to fight and sent along on more dangerous work, a life that Aswin took to quite well. Now in his twenties, he fills whatever role the family needs of him.
|Adalyn||A man who hails from the Lowers. His fighting technique has been honed by necessity and the will to survive, molding him into a formidable opponent with a blade. An interesting man. I've a feeling there are depths to him, though they may not be easily uncovered.|
|Arcadia||Quiet type. Definitely a commoner with that tongue.|
|Cora||A cousin, all grown up, and so much fun. I can see we have some shared interests, and those might be truly fun.|
|Eleanor||He's got a sweetness about him, despite his age and ...everything else. I wonder if he'll ever show up for drills.|
|Evaristo||An Ulbran with a good sense of humor, is the best sort of Ulbran. Also the ones that do NOT stab you, they are also good Ulbrans. I got a good feeling about this one.|
|Gretchen||A hard working, honest man from the Lowers. I meet so many of those. The Lowers must be a great place to grow up!|
|Jacali||Slender'n sleek, that one, bet he could get into all sorts of places, him, all manner of crevise and crack, ey? Bet he could. Might well wager I could have a use for that, I could.|
|Jennyva||Had a beer with him at the Hollow after a long day at the Graveyard. He's not bad company! And he's not bad on the eyes. Great sense of humor too and made me smile even though I didn't even feel like it.|
|Kritr||Every shieldwall needs a good knife man. I'd take his seax over an axe in a shield wall. From what I understand though, the Compact doesn't form shieldwalls when fighting. They use cavalry and formations instead. So... it begs the question. Why does one need to be so good with a knife?|
|Magpie||Magpie isn't used to seeing Ulbrans hanging around the Murder, but if they must, Aswin made for pleasant enough chit-chat and wasn't hanging around in the wake of a bloody bar brawl. You have to watch those Ulbrans. It's all fun and games until you make one angry.|
|Mirari||What a witty man, with the most charming of smiles! I'm sure he'll be great fun to get to know.|
|Ras||Aswin's an Ulbran. He's kinda smarter than most folk. It's the kinda smartness that makes some people shit their pants.|
|Reese||Seems like an interesting man. I do very much wonder about what path he will eventually take|
|Revell||Not at /all/ what I've come to expect of an Ulbran. Most of the ones I've met would rather look dour and scary that risk showing weakness by letting a fleeting smile past their icy facade. Not this one, he strikes me as the type that knows when it's time to be threatening, and when it's alright to crack a joke. Which, funnily enough, makes him potentially the most dangerous of the bunch.|
|Shade||Oh, young Aswin, how much you have grown. Good with a razor, an important skill for a barber to be.|
|Sunaia||Respect is so very important, isn't it? ...Yes, I know who he is. But, the fact that he can engage in a respectful conversation with a silk is worth a lot to me.|
|Sydney||Hard to know a man's measure at a glance, least of all in the Lowers, and I'd be hard-pressed to say he looks like a good sort, but he looks like a useful sort. That's arguably better. Doesn't hurt that he's got some experience in the pits. Wonder if we fought before. Wonder if we'll fight again.|
|Tanith||Smart, learns fast, humble enough to know he's got more to learn. Also an Ulbran, and you know what they say about them.|
