Descriptions

A Gentleman's Clothes

A broad shouldered man with a heavily muscled frame that reaches six foot six inches in height. Brown hair with a reddish highlight to it is cut short around his ears and neck and kept neatly styled. A rounded face with eyes of a pale blue is kept clean and shaved. He has high-set cheekbones, a prominate nose and a strong jaw and full and slightly wide lips. A thick neck leads down to that powerful body that is pure strength. He dresses neatly when not wearing his armor. Today that means a loose shirt in a cream tone with a high-necked brown doublet worn over it. The shirt has loose flowing long sleeves and the doublet is short-sleeved with silver buckles holding it closed. Matching brown breeches are worn as well along with a pair of brown leather gloves and new looking dark brown boots.

Background

Elric Hightower is the second son out of three for Lord Otto of House Hightower. His older brother Ormund was the heir and Elric was merely the spare. He always felt like he was one step behind his brother and one step ahead of being forgotten. He didn't want to be the heir though, oh no that would be bad in his mind. Heads of House and thier heirs took all the blame and Elric had no desire to do that. He wanted be the one who fought the real battles behind the scenes. The truth was Elric hated having complete control as he had no idea what to do with it or how to command. He wanted to follow and bask in the glow of those who could lead.

He was born in late January and was a healthy and fairly quiet baby all things considered. As he grew into a child he studied history and heraldry along with learning to wield a blade a ride a horse. He was clever but he possessed no true great mind even though he tried his best to learn what would be useful to him. He got into several fights in his early years and seemed to have a violent streak. After being scolded a few times he learned to mask this violence in favor of appearing as a calm controlled and polite young man. He gradually perfected this mask saving his ire for those he fought in his sword training. At age nine he squired to a local Oldtown knight and began his path to Knighthood.

He was a good squire and got his spurs at seventeen. For a while after that Elric left Oldtown as a full Knight. He traveled the Dornish border and got into a few skirmishes before he was called back home. For the next few years he served his brother Ormund who now has an heir of his own. Elric settled into a comfortable routine of blending into the shadows until it was time to deliver a punishment or payback to an enemy of House Hightower. He was ruthless and mericless in battle but he could act the part of a perfect gentleman in public and he did just that having perfected his gentlemans mask. Now at age twenty eight Elric is being pressured to find a good wife much to his chagrin. Still he plans to do his duty to his House even if he has to scare some poor lady to do it.

Quirks

  • Wealth: Opulent: As a Hightower and a member of that Houses main line it is safe to say Elric has plenty of money for his expenses. He is rather practical about buying things though and doesn't like to waste his resources on what he considers frivolous things.
  • Ambitious: Always trying to stay one step ahead of everyone else Elric is driven by his desire to improve his standing as well as that of his House. Though his idea of improvement isn't always one his family can agree on…
  • Attractive: While not the most handsome of men there is definitely a certain charm to Elric's looks at least until his personality has been completely revealed. But then there must be someone out there who would appreciate that too right? Right.
  • Polite Sadist: A perfect gentleman in public Elric appears to be kind and courteous to just about everyone. However those who have seen him fight know he is definitely not a complete gentleman. When he dons his armor he fights dirty and seems to enjoy the pain he causes. Yet after the battle he returns to that same polite gentleman he was before. But just how deep is his sadistic nature really buried?
  • Follower: Kings don't rule or stay in power by themselves and neither does anyone else. Powerful people have people they trust or use who keep them in power. Elric aims to be one of those followers of someone who he thinks will further his own goals.
