Lord Rysen Crovane
O sing, bright muse! Of Nature's myriad wonders, glorious feats of arms, and the mysteries of all-ruling love!
Description: The young man's dark brown hair is short and wavy, and his grey eyes resemble the textures and colors of storm clouds. Though his face is expressive and open, his animal-like gaze often lingers. He is of average height, and a lean build, and his movements are fluid and natural. He has, on his left forearm, a tattoo in the shape of intricately arranged symbols.
Personality: Often respectful and curious, Rysen is a seeker of both knowledge and experiences. He is thoughtful and reflective, but wears his emotions on his sleeve, which often shatters plans and expectations in the heat of the moment. He seeks to earn honor and glory in the arts of war and poetry, but knows that he has much to learn, and is more at home in the country inn or wooded glade, than the glittering halls of court.
Background: Rysen was born the second son of a distant Crovane lord. His mother is a devout follower of the Faith, and educated her sons on religious matters, court poetry and the practice of virtue in everyday life. He was also trained by Grodin Vales, a veteran soldier of the north who taught him marital skills and survival techniques. After becoming seriously wounded in an altercation with an influential priest rumored to be a relation of his lover, Rysen was sent by his father to Arx.

|Monique||An incredible poet, he truly does have an elegant way of turning a verse.|
|Niklas||As much a bard as any who have ever been given the title. His verse is genius.|

|Sorrel||A bard and a swordsman! Someone after my own heart. He's got a lovely singing voice, and he's learning to use his sword so that his swordplay might match his poetry. A poetry of motion in addition to poetry of words!|
|Tescelina||He says nice things to the stars. A waste I'm afraid, alas.|
|Venturo||Lord Crovane demonstrated tremendous talent during the Kismet Hall, commanding a crowd who wasn't certain what to expect when it came to the carnival in Arx. His choices were perfect and perfectly performed, and I look forward to future viewings of his works.|
|Vitalis||Keen mind, though not one to leave to his own devices in the wilds. Strange, I thought Northerners came by woodcraft with mother's milk.|
|Willow||So, attractive, Northern, and a poet. What's the catch?|
