Prince Galen Thrax
"Can't we just kill each other like civilized people?"
Description: This is a tall handsome man, broad of shoulder and muscular. His features are fine and his moustache is a manly moustache, well cared for and kept trimmed as is only civilized. He carries himself with authority, his movements energetic and his steps sure. His voice is deep and sonorous and his hair thick and well-coiffed, and with his square, handsome jaw and his slow, handsome smile he looks very much as though he has stepped out of a portrait and into the world.
Personality: Galen is a strong man with a strong personality. He's headstrong when he knows he's in the right, and he is an independent thinker. He'll listen to other people but he's adamant about making his own decisions. He is brave and bold and forthright, but where on others this might come across as bossy and rude, Galen is charming and friendly.
He is a civilized man, a man of refined tastes - and a dashing moustache - who is very concerned with doing things the proper way. Like reasonable people. He is still a Prince of Thrax, believing that men should be raised to be strong and warlike, but allowing women to learn to fight and carry arms and lead forces and sail isn't upsetting to him either. In his mind, a man is a man if he can do these things, and whether a woman can or not is irrelevant to the point at hand.
Background: Galen has always been far too refined for a Prince of Thrax, at least in his family's eyes. Growing up he was particular about his armor and particular about his appearance and particular in so many ways - but his weapon of choice and his skill with it made many teasing comments go unsaid. He built up a particular fondness for a large heavy warhammer that makes his opponents shudder and very often reconsider slights given.
He grew up strong and stubborn and, in a final despairing effort to turn him into a proper Thrax man was sent to sea as a sailor on a ship. The ship disappeared in a storm, only to return eight years later with Galen at the helm as Navigator. He has seen the world, or more of the world than most people would, and it has only enhanced his determination to be the voice of civilization in the heart of Thrax proper.
|Aethan||Willing to go into the field, which speaks highly of him.|
|Berenice||Delightful! Appreciative of fashion in all its glories, and of a similar mindset when it comes to the strangeness of certain worldly matters.|
|Calandra||He has an intensity that steals my breath away, and a rough charm to go with it. Plus, he can drink three bottles of rum in one day? Impressive.|
|Estil||Sometimes it's a little surprising to meet a Prince who isn't an utter asshat. This one isn't. He's good peoples. I like him immensely.|
|Giulio||A royal of House Thrax and husband to Sorrel. I suspect there will be much of interest to discuss in the future.|
|Ian||Glad to see he's back. Hope he's not coming on too strong.|
|Sorrel||The Captain of the Serpents Tide and a Thraxian prince, he's devestatingly handsome and has a personality that appeals to me even more than his mustache. He loves my singing, he helps me get my sea legs, and he gave me the most handsome son. I'm hopelessly devoted to my Warlord.|
|Vanora||Galen is a capable Warlord and a steadfast friend and ally, always glad to have met him.|
|Volcica||His armor is exquisite. His personality seems friendly, as well.|
