Description: Of a middling height at five foot ten, Derovai is confidently comfortable in every inch of himself. Dark, disheveled hair, a shadow of stubble across his strong jaw, and striking blue eyes lend to the Oathlander a mien of a mysterious nature.

Personality: Raised on the streets of Arx, Derovai discovered at an early age that knowledge can be just as valuable as any coin, and just as powerful as any noble. Never quite suited to wielding a sword, he learned instead to parry with words, to strike to the truth of things, with or without the mercy of polite civility. Between charismatic charm and biting wit, it can be difficult to find acquaintances who claim a middle ground of neutrality with the man; most tend to find him delightful or barely tolerable. Derovai is more concerned with information than being liked, however, so he usually cares more about endearing himself to those who are useful.

Background: One of many to settle in Arx under the ward of Valardin, the Voss family has had little claim to fame. At least not in any particularly public capacity. Derovai's father was granted knighthood after serving his time as a squire, and has been supporting his family quietly as such ever since.

While warrior knights and famous champions hold a certain appeal, Derovai gravitated readily toward more scholarly pursuits. Most of his time was spent in Arx, but he traveled often in search of this or that, earning something of a reputation for himself. Shortly after the Tragedy at Sanctum, Derovai went there to discover what he could from the city and its surrounding vassals. Now he's returning to Arx to report to his Highlord and make himself as valuable as he possibly can during this tumultuous time.

  • Name Summary
    Anisha Investigator Derovai Voss presents an intriguing face. Carefully schooled negligence in his appearance, a rough and ready attitude in both demeanour and wardrobe. As precisely calculated a face as the finest of courtiers. I do wonder how that works out for him. Perhaps I shall hire him for an investigation and see if it pays off for any or both of us.
    Caspian He gives great direction, he should have been a director!
    Domonico An Investigator, one who claims to be good at his profession. I am inclined to believe him as he did not appear to be bragging.
    Lena Talks... incisively. Good to study for someone who looks close and sees uncomfortably true.
    Mabelle Stern. Knows a lot. I'm all ears.
    Ras Got the weird feeling that this guy could be dangerous, even though he's done nothin but act polite and friendly. Somethin under the surface of that river. He best not cross Eli though.
    Sydney Taciturn, but he seemed to understand the value of coin quite keenly. He doesn't seem to be his own favorite topic... I can relate to that, as well. I forgot his name at the end of the evening when it was just us. That was embarrassing.
    Vitalis Man likes his tea. We should get something a bit stouter some time and talk. He's been away a while and BOY do I know that feeling.
