Lord Kincade Blanchard
A man on a horse is spiritually, as well as physically, taller than a man on foot.
Description: A large surly man with a well groomed and chest-length beard. Usually found in his armor Kincade almost always smells of weapon oil, unless you're close enough to smell his beard oil. A few scars are visible and he seems somewhat hairy. Whether dressed in armor or not he is always found in the blue that drapes the halls of Chevalparc. While Kincade's barrel chest rarely sports the official crest of his house it is rarely left unadorned. His curly brown hair is just long enough to tuck behind his ears, and his flesh has bronzed from years in the sun. All his muscles are thick and he does not seem lanky at all for his tall height, instead standing more like a giant than a mere man.
Personality: Kincade is usually happy and willing to listen to anyone. He never rushes and always thinks through his decisions. Kincade is jovial and often will be found with a pint in his hand or a plate full of food nearby. However when it's time to be serious, when battle starts, or when someone he cares about is threatened Kincade is a centaur of man.
Background: Kincade is the youngest son of Vardon Blanchard and as such had fewer responsibilities around the home. He spent much of his time taming horses and was renown for his ability to break wild horses. Spending the rest of his youth training as a knight, he would soon find use of these skills in his brothers many battles to unify all of Chevalle under the Blanchard banner. While Philippe was able to focus on leading and building his name, Kincade did the dirty work and was Philippe's executioner. After the dust settled Kincade again found himself with very little to do. This opened up the window for him to explore the world and travel abroad. The main purpose of these trips was not solely pleasure though, Kincade's strong sense of duty to the family also meant he was trying to do business for the family. Both building ties with foreign powers and collecting the most exotic horses in the realm for refinement back home at Chevalparc. In the North Kincade found a legendary horse breed that had never been tamed, he took refuge with a local tribe of Shavs that had been troublesome in the past. Over time Kincade earned the tribe's trust and managed to break the legendary mountain horse. Teaching the tribe how to tame the horses he brought a sizeable herd back to Chevalle and was able to make a sizeable profit for them and the northern Tribe. Upon returning home his feet were seen with much adoration by his countrymen and he was awarded the historically prestigious position of Horselord of Chevalle, Grand Master of the Stables, Breaker of Stallions. Over the course of his short time back home Kincade has proven himself a master trader and has become the focus point of economic power, Phillipe never makes a trade deal without consulting Kincade.
|Delilah||He embraces life in such a spirited way! Fearlessly experiencing the moment is an admirable philosophy on life. I have so many questions to ask him later!|
