Prince Raimon Thrax
If an injury has to be done to a man it should be so severe that his vengeance need not be feared.
Description: He is a well muscled man, his form striking a balance between form and function. The sort of musculature that can only be acheived by someone with the time and dedication spent towards honing his body. He has a strong brow and perceptive dark eyes that takes in his surroundings for any potential threats. He keeps his hair cut short to his head, the better not to get in the way in the middle of a fight. He has a bearing befitting his noble birth, while at the same time a deadly aura around the man.
Personality: There are several words that could be used to describe Raimon but almost all of them can be summed up as Severe. At first glance he appears to be a man of poor humor and riggid discipline, save for in the training grounds or the field of battle. He takes towards combat of all forms with a severe and oft disturbing relish that might cause disquiet with more civilized folk. People close to him have rumored that if you can get the man to laugh though that it is a cheerful sound and a smile will light up his face. If you can manage the feat anyways.
Background: Raimon Fidante had a fairly typical childhood. He was often in the shadow of his brother and Cousins growing up, which suited him just fine. He was a quiet child, serious even at a young age. Despite often overlooked he was always close to his brother. It was said the only think he loved more was fighting. As soon as he was old enough he trained in the Fidante yards, preparing himself should the need be called on to defend against invading Oathlanders. An opportunity that he dearly hoped for.
He served his family with distinction, a ferocious warrior on the field of battle. He took to the field in both the Silent War and the Gyre War. When his brother died he was despondent for a few days before reporting back to the training grounds once his mourning was done. It seemed he was set to train and to fight until the end of his days. Politics seemed to have other ideas. If he had any complaint about his betrothal to Princess Vega Thrax, he gave no inclinations of it. He faced down his new wife and the wedding with as much stoic determination as he faced anything else. Now he serves House Thrax and awaits the chance to be unleashed on their enemies.
|Aethan||A new Thrax Prince -- seems up to the job.|
|Ajax||A prince that seems he'd more comfortable on the battlefield then the noble courts. Neat.|
|Brigida||Unlike his mother, this Fidante turned Thrax is most definitely not a hugger nor a singer. He's got too much of his father in him but I suppose that will see him in fine stead over in the Mourning Isles with the rest of the glowering Sea Serpeants. He does try to be charming, not that he suceeded.|
|Calista||My dutiful cousin, it seems passion took him from Tor and into the arms of a Thraxian princess. He does us all proud.|
|Dante||Though his departure from our family was born out of tragedy, he seems to have made a good life for himself among Thrax. I wish him luck in his quest to eat live things.|
|Evaristo||I can't really pin-point him yet, but he seems polite and cordial and has an interesting background.|
|Faye||A man who is forthright and serious, and he seems quite attentive to duty. I wish him luck as he takes on the thrall project.|
|Fiora||I know you're supposed to move past these things and it's wrong to hate someone for their last name. Especially when your brother has that last name. Especially when you're allies with that last name. I know all that.|
|Giuliano||Understands the business of war, which I wish more did. While I prefer to do my killing in less chaotic circumstances, I always respect someone willing to kill.|
|Helena||By his words a "simple soldier" though noble in both title and spirit as well, I feel, from the few moments we spoke. I am sure he and his wife will do great things in the city for Thrax.|
|Ian||Not sure he knows what he's in for.|
|Jasher||I see why Vega chose to marry him. Let us see what he will carve for himself in Thrax's future.|
|Lora||So like and yet so very unlike his brother. I can but pray the course of his life steers through brighter, calmer waters.|
|Lucita||A Fidante who married up into Thrax to Jasher's sister. He seems pleasant, amicable and interested in furthering his training.|
|Maja||A Thrax prince! Although not from Maelstrom -- he is from Tor, the city of flowers. He married in and is new to Arx. He seemed to trying to be low-key about his social standing but I do not know why! If I were a prince, I would shout it from the rooftops constantly! So it's mysterious why he holds back -- something to investigate perhaps.|
|Monique||Newlywed and seemingly a man of few words, but game to eat octopi so he must truly love her!|
|Morgan||Very serious man with a very serious halberd. Note that last part because it is super awesome.|
|Reese||A thrax Prince of Roses and warfare, seems serious and intelligent. I look forward to knowing him better.|
|Sorrel||Married into Thrax, he seems to be adapting very well to the culture, tricky though it may be. He's already offering to help with projects and that's very exciting.|
|Vega||A man of dedication and duty that rivals my own. I pity the person that faces him on the field of battle.|
