Re: [WAR X] WAR X RP - The Circle of Life and Death [SU]
Name: Vyraz Inxi
Description: Vyraz stands at about six feet tall, with long black hair and intelligent brown eyes. He sports a goatee and small moustache on his face, too. While training with the Circle Knights, he had gained a considerable amount of muscle, and he is not afraid-nor unable-to use that muscle.
Vyraz Inxi, as the sole son of a Mancian Aristocrat, and a particularly wealthy one at that, inherited a fortune. Though a quarter of this inheritance was donated to the Cullen, a second quarter went into his house at Itum, another quarter went into making his ship, and an eighth of his fortune he reserves for his needs, he still managed to get clothes that fitted such a rich person-Gloves made from Salamance scales, a shirt and a pair of pants that have streaks of indigo (indigo dyes are not cheap), and a captain's hat with a feather from the crown of his Shiny Braviary. He also has a set of armor that fits him, obtained during the brief time he spent dealing with the Circle Knights. He's managed to remove all of the symbols that represent the Circle Knights.
He has a Musket on his leather belt, but the true weapon to fear is the sheathed blade he carries-It is a weapon that his father gave him, passed down from many generations, all the way back to the times of the Lifemaker-a weapon apparently carried by one of the Lifemaker's most trusted generals, Univar Inix, who was loyal to the Lifemaker, did not turn his back on him upon his death, and was responsible for freeing Mancia from it's captives, retiring after doing so, and became wealthy for his service to Mancia and the Lifemaker's armies-And his blade was passed down to his sons and grandsons, who were able to survive the Black Wave. This blade's name is Zenith of Hope-it's hilt is made of gold, embedded with multiple precious jewels, and it gives off a light blue aura meant to drive away darkness (The aura diminishes when put back into the sheath).
Personality: His true personality is that of a calm and clever young man. His charismatic ability, however, can sometimes overshadow this. This level of social ability, a trait he acquired from his father, has allowed him to rally forces to his aid-like when he was hiring a crew. He backs this up with his background, using his nobility status to get him places very few could go.
His brief time with the Circle Knights gave Vyraz a good deal of resent and spite towards the group, but not for their protection of regular humans from mages. It is rather their overly-destructive habits of burning whole towns to the ground in search of wizardry that turned Vyraz from their ally to their enemy quite quickly. Despite this loath, he also has very little trust for most Mages either, mainly because his sister and mother were killed by a mage that had lost all sanity. He also doesn't take kindly to the Aristocrats of Mancia, mainly for their absolute and unjust control over everything and everyone on the island.
However, there is something about adventure that attracts him. Being the son of a extremely wealthy merchant allowed Vyraz to see people that lived on Corriban and Qunnui, and this had garnered high curiosity to what the other countries are like. This curiosity about the unknown has particularly pulled at the ancient ruins of Saffron, and he had long dreamed of exploring it's depths for it's most ancient ruins.
History: Vyraz Inxi was born to one of the richest Aristocrats on Mancia-His father, Novin Inxi, was a great merchant that had sold his goods to all the known world, and had obtained vast treasures with his savvy as a trader and his skill with his tongue. Novin originally feared he might not have a male heir, as his wife had originally born a son that died quickly, then a daughter-who could not be the inheritor. However, seeing his beautiful and strong son for the first time nearly made him cry, he was so happy. His son was beautiful, strong, smart, and was kind to his father. What better heir could he ask for?
Of course, Novin knew that success would not be strictly based off his heritage. Henceforth, he immediately set off to teach Vyraz everything that made him successful; how to socialize, how to manage finances, how to tell frauds from the real deal, and which people to trust in life. Vyraz quickly learned from his father's example, and Novin was very proud of his son, who showed high potential for the family business.
However, Novin did not know-or at least, didn't know right off the bat-that Vyraz, on top of everything else, was also growing up to be an excellent swordfighter. Vyraz immediately was immersed with the local children's sport of stick-fighting, which is, as the name implies, fighting with sticks. However, his ability to disarm any stick from the opposition was quickly realized. Novin eventually witnessed this, and although that he did not like the fact that Vyraz nearly lost an eye, he was pleased that his son would be suiting for wielding the most precious treasure he had ever owned-the Zenith of Hope, the Inxi family's pride and joy, their family heirloom, and one of the most precious (and priceless) items in the world.
Novin, however, was totally caught off guard when Vyraz presented to his father something that even he wasn't expecting.
For five days in a year, the migration of Braviary and Rufflet would come directly through Mancia, and it was the only time for Mancians to catch the Pokemon that was otherwise only seen in Corriban. Vyraz, young enough to be able to catch a Pokemon, was immediately enticed to try to somehow attract one of the rare birds (to Mancians). However, his lure only worked with one Rufflet, and the coloration was almost the opposite of what a regular Rufflet was-orange instead of blue. He took it too his father, who almost went unconscious to see what he identified as a Shiny Rufflet. After learning that the oddly colored Pokemon was indeed a Rufflet, Vyraz immediately set about to befriend and raise the bird properly, and the duo grew a good bond, with the Rufflet evolving into a Braviary a year later. This evolution, along with the Braviary’s ability to fight excellently against the local Wild Pokemon, quickly became another thing for his father to be proud of, along with his swordsmanship, his charisma, his natural talents, and his like of his father. Novin thought that Vyraz was nothing short of a blessing for him-a perfect son.
After the evolution occurred, however, Vyraz's life took an immediate downhill turn.
The first indication that the Inxi’s luck changed for the worse was that one of Novin’s most trusted friends-a Mage with control over water-At last lost his sanity, using his power to quickly force a lot of water down Vyraz’s daughter and mother while they were getting water at the well, effectively killing them. Novin himself nearly got murdered in quite the same way, had it not been for a group of Circle Knights having stabbed the Mage through the heart. After this event, Vyraz quickly decided that being a Circle Knight was what he wanted to be. Considering that they just saved his life, Novin didn’t disagree.
Vyraz’s special talents were immediately recognized-and well liked-by the Mancian Circle Knights. The training was easier than expected-though certainly no cakewalk-and he was a fully-trained Knight in just a year. During this time, Vyraz learned quite a bit about Mancia in general-including the practical slave-driving the Aristocratic Uplanders did on a daily basis, and the incredibly weak government structure because of it. In fact, the Circle Knights in Mancia have a second role: general protection of Mancia, mainly because the Circle Knights are more in number than soldiers, and they have boats. That was a nasty discovery for Vyraz, as it meant that his father (whose record had been quite clean up until right then) had abused the very poor people living in Lowland, giving them far less pay than what they should have earned.
However, a second, sharp fall was when he was instructed to kill a family of Mages, on the spot, by the head of the Mancian knights. This family included two sons. The reason they were being executed was that the father had been drinking. Although all the family was registered, Drinking Mages is out of the question, punished by death. They tried to flee from Saffron, where the crime was committed, and get to Venefinia, where the punishment would be a severe fine and some rehabilitation training at the Ministry of Truth. However, they had been found-and caught-just feet away from the docks. Vyraz barely was able to kill them all quickly, before he puked out of disgust. He immediately left the knights after this incident, and kept his ears out for the occasional tale of Circle Knights doing things inhumane in their somewhat blind pursuit of mages.
Meanwhile, Vyraz grew to like his father less and less after he left the Circle Knights-though this sudden change of heart was unspoken by him...However, he nevertheless was present at his funeral, and cried a few tears. The cause of death: He was overseeing the destruction of one of the bronze statues of slaves on the islands, saying that it ‘gave the wrong image,’ and one of the pieces of it landed on his head, breaking his skull and damaging his brain.
Vyraz, now seventeen, had inherited all of his dead father’s fortune, including the Zenith of Hope. He briefly resumed his father’s job of being a trader, but then realized that he had to do something else. He quickly decided to move to Itum, selling the using his cash to build a boat with the help of the Lowlanders under the direct employ of his father, who also made up the crew, and were paid probably thrice fold what their former boss did. They were also a good deal of the work that helped build his house once he settled in, and yet again, they were paid quite much more than what Novin ever would.
It was in the streets of Itum that he remembered one thing that he forgot-that the Circle Knight’s Headquarters was in Itum. The irony was that Magic was regulated extremely well, whist everything else wasn’t. He couldn’t stand it at all…Then he heard of the Cullen, which for him was basically everything he wanted, including a chance at revenge against the Circle Knights for their wrongdoing and a strong, region-scale government for Aria. However, due to his nobility status, he was rather reluctant to join.
It wasn’t until he had gotten wind of six other parties, who were vying for control for Aria too, that Vyraz decided on joining the Cullen. To help assist matters, he gave quite a large portion of his wealth to the Cullen’s cause. This cash flow helped establish himself in the Cullen, and (he hoped) relived some tensions some of the criminals from Mancia may have had towards his family.
Pokemon: Storm the Braviary. Storm, having been raised by Vyraz Inxi, reflects a similar personality: Calm and intelligent. He has been raised for several years now, having been trained against the wild Pokemon native to Mancia, and never having really been part of any official battle. Storm is Shiny.
Other: The ship that Vyraz owns is a medium-sized vessel named Bellowing Eons. The ship corners better than similar vessels, as a note. It’s also notable that although Vyraz detests the Circle Knights, the Circle Knights do not detest Vyraz, and are constantly trying to get him to rejoin.
