Age: Feb 22 101 (20)


A young man, perhaps in his late teens or early twenties. An oval shaped face is toped with neatly trimmed hair of a golden shade of brown. That trimmed hair frames his face and is neatly cut off about halfway down his forehead, above his ears, and halfway down his neck. Low-set trimmed brows of the same color as his hair have a gentle arch to them and are placed just above his eyes. Those eyes are almond shaped, large and a deep blue in color. A long, straight nose with a slight point to it sits above small full lips. His cheeks are rounded with high cheekbones that slope gently downward into a strong jaw covered with just the barest hint of light brown stubble. Standing at about six foot five he has a broud shouldered, lean and slightly muscular build. His frame is sturdy and he often dresses in well made yet practical clothing rather than flashy attire.

Currently he is wearing a loose fitting long-sleeved tunic of ivory silk paired with a short-sleeved lace-up doublet of deep black brocade. The shirts sleeves flow down to his wrists stopping just before a pair of large slightly calloused hands. Worn with the tunic and doublet are a set of tight black breeches and a leather belt that holds several pouches and well as a sheath for a small knife. The breeches tuck neatly into a pair of flat soled and sturdy black leather boots.


Nathaniel was born at Red Lake the seat of House Crane in the Reach. His father was the Lord Nyles Crane the Head of House Crane and his mother Elise was a former Rowan, a cousin of that House's main line. As the youngest son with three older brothers and an older sister who all came before him Nathaniel had fewer expectations of him than his siblings. The only thing his father really expected of him was to not shame the family, other than that he was given a lot of freedom growing up.

Nathaniel was an active child who could easily sit and read or do his lessons but who greatly prefered to go out and spend time in the stables. He learned to ride at age five and horses quickly became his passion. He loved working with them and they loved him. He raced his bay courser across the lands around Red Lake and often challenged others to race him. Nathaniel was a natural rider and he also starting learning to breed horses.

By the time he was seventeen Nathaniel had his own collection of fine bred coursers that he called Red Lake Bays. He sold a few of these horses to knights and nobles who wanted a fast horse and he drew his fathers attention with the level of income he made from his hobby.

His father seemed to be surprised at the level of dedication his son showed and at age twnety it was decided decided that Nathaniel should accompany his two elder brothers on thier trip to Oldtown to make trade contacts. The Lord Crane even had a manse purchased outside the city for his sons and a large stable was built to encourage Nathaniel to continue his horse breeding skills. Nathaniel though had been planning something for a while now and Oldtown seemed the perfect place to start his newest business plan, a horse racing track.

RP Hooks

  • The Red Lake Bays: Nathaniel's personal breed of coursers. Normally dark colored they range from a light chestnut color to a dark blood colored bay to a few rare solid blacks. Fast and free spirited these horses are carefully bred and trained to be used by nobles and knights alike. Nathaniel oversees this business himself and is well known throughout the Reach and part of the Westerlands for these fine horses. If you want to buy a horse Nathaniel is a good person to speak with.
  • Off to the Races: After arriving in Oldtown Nathaniel has made plans to buy land and build a race track for horse racing. If you are interested in helping Nathaniel get started the track will need people to build it after Nathaniel goes through the proper channels to buy the land. Once built the track will host weekly races where people can test their riding skills and bet on their favorite horse. Nobles and small folk alike are welcome to bring their horses and coin to race and bet. There will be a small entrance fee and a percentage from every person who bets will go into the pot for the winning rider.
  • Betrothal Debate Ongoing: Nathaniel's mother and father are currently in the process of trying to marry him off. Any eligible young ladies might be considered as a possible match for him.
  • Family Ties: (OOC Request) Currently the Crane family consists of just Nathaniel as a player character. I would welcome people who want to play family members be they siblings or cousins or even servants of House Crane. Nathaniel has several siblings most of them unnamed and waiting to be claimed if anyone wants to play them.


  • Wealth: Opulent

“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them.”
