Lord Julian Saik
A knights arms and armor are only as good as the tasks they are used for.
Description: A man of slightly above average height and build, he isn't a large man. Well toned and lean he is built for strength and speed. His light brown eyes always appear to be scanning as if he is expacting anything to happen at any time. His dark brown hair matches his bears. A beard he uses to look older, as his face has always appeared to be younger than he really is. Despite his boyish good looks there appears to be a grizzled, look to him, as if he has seen a lot in his time. His eyes reflect that as well, a wisdom beyond his years earned through countless battles and struggles.
Personality: A somewhat reserved man, but not shy. He has always kind of kept to himself. His duties have always had him bouncing around a lot, often needing to go to battle as well, he has adopted his somewhat reserved demeanor to keep himself from making great friends that he was sure he would one day lose. Close to his family and fiercly protective of them, he has always taken his duties and training as a knight very seriously. Always a pragmatic thinker, and one who likes to think tactically, he has also always been a bit more conservative than the standard southerner.
Background: Growing up in the Saiklands with a southern mother, and a former oathlander as a father, Julian took to training to be a knight like his dad at an early age. Much younger than his brothers, and older than thier children, he did not have a lot in the way of close friends or companions growing up. So he buried himself in his training and lessons on commanding forces, to maximize how effective he could be for his family, so as to make his father proud. He squired from the age of tweleve and was officially knighted at the age of eighteen after fighting to protect the children of one of his cousins from a group of highway men, nearly costing him his life, but keeping the children safe as a result. Since then, it kind of became his official duty to travel with the Saik children that were fostering elsewhere, to watch over them and keep them safe, offering them weapons training if they so desired. Recently, there has been less need for such a duty so he has come to Arx at the request of his Baroness to see how he might be of assistance now.
|Alessia||Personably, great company and fun to tease.|
|Amund||Fights well. Very resilient.|
|Apollo||Perfectly certain of himself. Whatever the cost.|
|Brigida||Apologises far too much and makes a racket moving around. I suppose he looks like he can fight though. I hope he doesn't ask forgiveness when in a battle though.|
|Cabrera||An enobled Knight of good banter. From the lands near where I grew up so I wonder if I have seen him before or fought near him on the ranks|
|Domonico||It's been too long since I last saw Lord Julian. It's good to know that the Saik's a still going strong. I'm not sure him training the children will be the best idea though. There is likely to be more mischief.|
|Gabriel||The Saik lord, with his jaunty demeanor and quiet calm, represents the best traits we can hope for in a knight. He reminds me a bit of myself.|
|Ian||Baroness Saik's cousin by marriage. Hope he does well.|
|Iseulet||The handsome Lord Saik is going to fit right into Arx society and I can imagine Lucita is thrilled to have him here. I can't wait to see him stretch his wings out.|
|Mabelle||Easy going man, being teased by the Ladies of the City seems to have no effect on him. I appreciate that.|
|Mirk||New Saik in Arx. He comes at a time when he's needed, it seems.|
|Reese||A likable warrior Lord who will be a great boon to his family. Many can hold a sword what compact needs is intelligent fighters and I think he is one.|
|Rysen||A skilled and dedicated swordsman, and an excellent training partner. The warriors of Saikland respect him, and it's easy to see why.|
|Sorrel||An in-law of Lucita's who is a knight. He seems friendly and affable. I'm sure we'll see one another again soon, training or not.|
|Thea||Has come back with the quick smile and stories. Should pose interesting for the city.|
|Vanora||A Saik Lord who has come to serve as General to the Saiklands forces. I admire his loyalty to the Baroness Lucita in her time of need, and he seems a charming fellow.|
