Prince Baelos Redrain
A little fun never hurts.
Description: Baelos is unmistakably northern in features - fair skin, deep auburn hair, and clear blue eyes. He wears a full beard that is a deeper red than his hair, which disguises both a strong jaw line and his expression when it serves him. He often flashes a devil-may-care smile, which wins over both northern and southern alike. Tall and athletic, he moves with a self-confident bearing that borders on swagger.
(Carelessness has a certain fashion to it, and just so the haphazard way his hair is pulled back, his shaggy beard, his half buttoned shirt - it kind of works.)
Personality: Self-assured, rakish, reckless, brash. Baelos strides through life with the confidence afforded by his name and his youth. As quick with a jest as he is with his blade, Baelos seeks fun of all varieties, particularly if it involves trouble. Typically he affects a cool disposition, but his temper is as fiery as any Northman when provoked. That said, he is more often seen slapping backs than exchanging punches.
Background: As the youngest of three sons of a non-ruling branch of the Redrain, Baelos had a childhood unburdened by duties or significant expectations. Instead, his devout focus on swordplay, soldiering, adventure, brawling, taverns, and trouble made him something of a minor celebrity among Farhaven's soldiering classes, if not a favorite of his father. Blood on his blade, ale on his lips, and a pretty girl by his side - from all appearances, Baelos was more than satisfied with this life. This all changed after both of his brothers left Farhaven, and both found themselves dead. Now, with his father Vigsi grief-stricken and near death, Baelos for the first time is laden with duty - duty to represent his family in Arx, to serve the Prince of Farhaven at court, and to make his mark in the South.
