Description

Leather Armor

A tall man standing at six foot seven with fair skin tanned slightly by the sun. Hair of a deep black the same shade as a raven's wings is cut short above his ears and reaches down no further than the middle of his neck. Arched and slightly tilted brows sit above almond shaped eyes of a dark and intense blue. A long nose with wide rounded nostrils stops above full small lips. His face is an oval shape with high cheekbones and a jaw that slops down rounding off into a slightly pointed chin. A short slender neck leads down to shoulders that are somewhere between broad and slender. in fact his whole body is like that strong but not too heavily muscled, made for grace and speed rather than pure brute strength. He seems to favor dark colors or earth tones when he dresses. Today it is a loose fitting black shirt with long flowing sleeves. A hardened leather chestpiece of deepest black with steel studs on it is worn over the shirt and paired with equally dark hard leather breeches and boots with flat soles. At his belt is a pair of finely crafted longswords placed within easy reach for drawing. Across his back is a longbow and a quiver of arrows with black feather fletchings. He moves quietly and with the grace of a predator but he still maintains a polite and approachable air to him all the same.

He seems to favor dark colors or earth tones when he dresses. Today he wears a long sleeved shirt of deep forest green cotton. The neckline is rather high and the sleeves reach down to his wrists to slightly large hands with long elegant fingers. The sleeves are fitted rather than flowing and a simple brown vest is worn over the shirt. His breeches match the vest as do his boots and a simple belt about his waist holds his coin purse but no visible weapons.

Background

Victor Bulwer was born in the year of 92 A.L. to the Golden Bull Trenton Bulwer and his wife Clara Costayne. With two older brothers and an older sister Victor always considered himself the quiet one of the family and he was. Even as a babe he was much more quiet than his siblings rarely crying out. His younger sister Mordane was born two years after him and a year after that when Victor was three years old his father was killed in a duel with Furio Vielo. His older brother Mark became head of house. Spending his youth training with a bow and blade or out in the kennels and stables Victor was almost always out and about. He was a shadow in the family home and even his steps were near silent. He spent much of his free time hunting or riding. He was truly gifted with a bow and yet he never got more than a passing glance from his oldest brother. Mordane was the focus of the House Bulwer Head. Victor did not envy his sister she had far too much attention he he felt it ruined her making her selfish and arrogant. He feared if he had that much attention he too would become rotten on the inside so he blended eagerly into the shadows. When Mordane had her accident and Mark's attention turned to marrying the other siblings off to secure alliances Victor did his part. He offered support to his injured sister as he could as he could see the change in her personality. He was betrothed to a duaghter of house Tarly. Jessamine Tarly was only eight when the contract was made. Victor was ten years her senior and they have never actually met. Victor became a knight like so many of his family before him even though he still prefered his bow to the blades he carried. At age twenty eight he was sent to Oldtown to assist Mark who was already present there. He has received a letter that Jassamine was of age and would travel to Oldtown to meet him as well.

Pets

  • Lokil: Lokil is a raven that Victor found injured when he was first learning to fly. He nursed the bird back to health and it has been his companion ever since. The bird is often seen accompanying Victor and tends to like perching in peoples hair.
  • Nara: A large pitch black mare that Victor raised from a foal. Nara is Victor's favorite horse whenever he goes out riding. Nara is very gentle and calm but extremely fast as well, she also loves apples as a treat.

RP Hooks

  • Knight: Like most of the males of his House, Victor became a knight. It was more because it was expected of him rather than any desire of his own but he fits into the role easy enough and he is rather skilled as well. He carries dual blades rather than a shield finding the extra weight only slows him down.
  • Skilled Archer: He started learning the bow when he was five and after years of practice he could be considered a master. He is more comfortable with his bow than his blades and it shows at times.
  • Good with Animals: Animals love Victor and often both dogs and cats will approach him along with certain birds as well. He has a gift for handling animals as well and seems more comfortable with them than people. He has a soft spot for birds and dogs especially.
  • Not as Good with People: He struggles with being social and in the spotlight fearing that too much attention will make him lose sight of what is important. He prefers to blend into the crowd rather than stand out and yet he can be incredibly insightful at times likely due to how well he tends to observe others and his surroundings.

Quirks

  • Wealth: Comfortable
  • Attractive: While he lacks the golden looks of his sister he still has an allure of his own. His beauty rather than shining and golden is dark and mysterious and his reserved nature only seems to add to the mystery.
  • Respectful: Victor is polite, kind to those who deserve it and chivalrous towards women. Even if he says little at times he always answers those who address him politely and respectfully.
  • Beastfriend: Animals of all kinds are drawn to him and he to them. Dogs, birds, horses and cats are the main ones and he is often seen with his pet raven on his shoulder as well.
  • Socially Reserved: He says little unless prompted. One might say he fears attention and the truth is he is very unused to it and it makes him uncomfortable.

Mordane

Mordane
Sister - My dear sister. I care for her deeply and I do my best to help her when I can. She is the reason I fear attention. It took losing her outer beauty for her inner beauty to surface and I hope that one day she can learn to see that there is more to ones beauty than what is in your mirror.

Jessamine

Jessamine
Betrothed - I have done my best to stay in communication with her through letters since the arrangement was made. Still I know little of her and I am both excited and nervous to meet her in person.
