Description: Clean, young athleticism defines Caspian: corded muscle lean and sculpted beneath the smooth dusky warmth of his skin, his lean, lanky frame might be a work of art to call to mind the sculptor's craft at statuary if you could get him to hold still for five minutes. He is dynamic and rarely still, driving motion through life at high speed. His wavy black hair is worn thick and long, his sloe-dark eyes often lit with an inner brilliance beneath the leaping arch of his active black eyebrows. His teeth flash white in ready grins, grinning challenge or fey humor in a fight as readily as he might grin delight and mirth at a festival.

Personality: Caspian is a cocktail of bright and dark, layer upon layer of glitter and glitz over a deeper uncertainty. His youth was forged uniquely in hardship, a stranger in a strange land in the Mourning Isles, punished for the sins -- literally -- of his parents. His new adulthood is a phoenix rise to a brilliant pinnacle of showmanship, grace, and basically glee. Caspian is quick: quick with words, deeds, weapons. But he's not hotheaded; he's mellow, bright-hearted, ready to defuse a situation with earnest-eyed hope as well as cause one with a badly-thought-out word. He loves jokes. He loves drama but pure melodrama, to throw himself into a performance with everything that he has. He loves attention. He laps it up. Give him more. More attention. He loves parties. He feeds off the energy of life and shines with it.

Background: Caspian was a thrall because his father was a thrall and his mother was also a thrall, and his father's war debt was a lot to pay. Yet the Thrax fealty has spent the last few years struggling towards what the rest of the Compact would call progress, and in an early push towards some of that progress, Donella Thrax freed some thralls who were thralls only by virtue of their parents' debts rather than their own. Caspian was freed at 19, with scattered memories of his tribe's honestly piratical raiding traditions mostly subverted by the day in and day out of long hours of hard labor with tenant farmers and ropemakers and sailors.

He found in his newfound freedom that what he was mainly good at was a.) hard labor and b.) knives! He took the surname 'Wild' because his parents didn't give him a better one, and became a mercenary and sword for hire, until he eventually tagged into being a duellist for the Champion's Guild in Arx on account of besting a few in combat and developing a reputation for being a real /showy/ sword for hire. Though he began as a kind of desperately hungry merc with an axe to grind, he blossomed into a delighted fighter at the opportunity to pitch his skills in the dueling ring to wealthy nobles. It was exactly the life for him. Money was suddenly easier to come by, and with money, delicious attention, heartwarming acclaim, and the love and affection of adoring crowds, at least as long as he was making a show of it. Turning to away from grim guts and leaping whole-heartedly into laughter and life, he shines with the brilliance of the bon vivant, and it's clear he's here to make a killing.

  • Name Summary
    Adalyn Shared a drink and an amusing conversation with him. I look forward to sparring with him sometime soon.
    Aerandir A capable fighter, if the first bout I have seen him in is any indication; the young man stood his ground admirably against the Knight of Pridehall in a duel. The man accepted his loss humbly, no less.
    Aethan Met him on his birthday. Very smiley. And encouraging, so that was nice.
    Agatha Apparently he fights while covered in oil and tries to make women swoon, and he won! And the Princess that was a little tipsy the other night seems to really, REALLY like him. He must be very good at what he ddoes!
    Aiden He came out to the event to honor Lady Aislin and Lord Killian Ashford. I sense just by that, he knows what is right in the world. While most would think one person doesn't matter, it's what we do together that does. I think he sees that.
    Ainsley I didn't get a chance to speak with him very much, but he seems to be very much what you would expect of a Champion.
    Alarissa A champion, a commoner Thrax who seems to understand respect, and in truth, for the moment, quite enjoyable.
    Alban A rogue. A rake. Not everything is about being a Champion. You could be much more to the Compact but... I will admit that Champions do have their place. If only to limit true bloodshed. That alone I can respect.
    Aleksei What a fighter! Exhilarating duel.
    Apollis A bold affable fellow. Duelist by trade and an entertainer by nature? Intriguing. I like his hair.
    Arianna He's a Champion and as I was taught by Champions...I'm kind of biased. I won't lie. The kid's got swag and he has a sense of humor. My kinda guy. I mean...that he's....easy on the eyes is just a plus. Bit of a jerk to my Liege lady but I think he meant well.
    Aric A very skilled knife fighter, just as his reputation says. It was a pleasure having him train me, which is a mild way of saying trounce me thoroughly!
    Arik Clever fellow. Wise to stop at one drink. And glib. I wonder if I will like Southern man? We will see.
    Armani He seems like a decent folk. He might be good at seafairing. He claims usefulness.
    Artur A fighter I met in the Hall of Heroes. Interested in stories of the past, though more focused on the future. We laughed at the story of Rathlander Redrain, my great grandfather.
    Astraea The Champion came in and danced around his foes like it was just for fun. He put on a good show and I think in time he'll be something fierce. In the meantime I hope to see him again, before he gets famous and forgets about the likes of me! Good show and kind smile serrah!
    Atherton Friendly sort. Likely has many connections, though I'd expect many of them would like to see him stabbed as much as paid.
    Bastien Some sort of loud duelist.
    Bliss Charming and roguish. Some small part of me thinks that he might be my male equivalent. Let's see if I can't talk him into carving that figurine for me.
    Cadenza Almost too handsome and too charming. Perhaps I should watch myself around him....or perhaps not.
    Caith He sings songs of adventures and chooses roads untravelled. I approve!
    Calarian He's a bit crass and informal but I must admit that I enjoyed his company. Perhaps if I keep offering to pay for his meals, he might consider taking an etiquette class.
    Cambria I like handsome men. I like handsome men that know their way around a blade. He also claims to be an entertainer and Champion. I hope my protege won't mind if I hire him for some events.
    Catalana He is sweet and eager. I hope that he goes far in life.
    Coraline He definitely knows how to fight, and he said he could teach me sheet fighting. Maybe one day he will tell me how to do it without a thinger.
    Cristoph Quick as a whip this one! He put me through my paces and really had me working for the match. I imagine that he knocks out plenty of fighters in the training center on a regular basis!
    Daemon A fine fighter with a fine sense of manners. May I be fortunate enough to cross paths with him again.
    Dante This champion is one I'd die to have fight by my side. Yes. I see the irony of saying that.
    Darrow A duellist who's eager to find a place.
    Delilah I had the pleasure of watching Caspian perform in the Rite of Gloria, a challenge between him and my dearest Lady Joslyn. What a wonderful event.
    Denica A duelist of sorts, aiming to be the best ever. Well he certainly doesn't lack for confidence, I daresay he may very well capture that title someday. Time will just have to tell.
    Dominique Handsome. Confident bordering on cocky. He is a champion true and true. He definitely made me hot and sweaty. (FROM SPARRING PEOPLE, get your mind out of the gutter)
    Donaldo Champion and entertainer I heard him say, and with such a fitting name for both aspects. I don't doubt that he puts on a good show in either venue.
    Echo He's a good duelist and seems to enjoy himself as he's sparring. One day I'll challenge him and give him a good show.
    Ectorion A skilled fighter, he could not break through the armor I wear, but were it not for the armor that battle would have gone far, far differently indeed.
    Elgana Charming. One may even say dashing, but I'm still firmly on the fence. He is willing to play along with silly games, so that makes him absolutely fun in my book.
    Emilia Someone who seems to be on the right path.
    Emily Self assured and rogueish, he is likely a cad but a fun one and would most likely be able to show me to parts of Arx I would otherwise not know about. How interesting.
    Fatima Charming, a little daring, and a delightful storyteller. I'd enjoy another night of drinking and picking his brain for all the interesting tales it holds.
    Faye Interesting explorer. I hope we will have a chance to talk more soon.
    Felicia Have seen him a few times before, but not really spoken. Duelist. Likes knives, and rum, and a good fight. Speaking of which... he owes me one.
    Fiora He shows himself off but he's not a stripper. So probably that act is really boring.
    Gareth One of these commoners who likes to pretend there is no difference in class. Equals and all that. I'm sure his tongue is as sharp as his blade, if his mind was as sharp as either of those he would truly be a force to be reckoned with. I suppose we'll have to wait and see. I'm sure I'll be disappointed.
    Giulio A more than a fair hand at the blade, an incorrigible flirt, with a glib tongue. How I do enjoy dangerous men.
    Grazia Rude. Crass. Obnoxious. This commoner is the lover of a princess and is crude enough to expose that fact in public. Just shameful, really. And, what's worse, he thinks he's funny!
    Gwenna A rather charming Champion that I met at The Fountain of Triumph. A very interesting man, to say the least! Funny as well as friendly, I hope to see him champion someone sometime soon.
    Ian It's not easy to watch that kind of eager optimism. I know what's going to happen to it.
    Ignacio While Caspian is loud and lewd, he has a certain charm about him as he goes on as he carried on with Felix. While Caspian left a vague threat of stabbing someone over a cookie, it was clearly good natured.
    Isidora I enjoyed the game we played of making up a story for the garden gnome! Our chance meeting was much fun and, next time, you will have to show me that you are the best champion in all the lands Caspian Wild.
    Jacque I've seen him about a few times, including attending the Rite of Gloria. He's not afraid to take a risk and seems very enterprising for a champion, something that I can appreciate. Maybe I'll hire him if I take exception with another noble's foibles.
    Jeffeth A skilled duelist. I hope I didn't accidentally hurt his business!
    Jordan Champion, former thrall. Seems to hold on to the misfortune of his past but seems to be making his living nevertheless. Good person to know.
    Joscelin A duelist, charming, more charm than I'm ever used to ever ever ever, and how does a man kiss a person's hand without ever meeting them? I'm certain this is a nobility thing but unless I'm missing something, there's nothing of that in him. I mean. I'm assuming. I've only just met him. Also, too pretty.
    Kaede Man named Wild. A champion, I hear. Seems eager to fight, but not stupidly so like that other man the other night. Good that Wild isn't too wild.
    Katarina Like his namesake, he is a rather forward and free in his demeanor that I've not entirely grown used to in my interactions amongst newcomers. I suppose that isn't an entirely terrible trait, depending on one's point of view. He seems humorous and means well.
    Kenna I watched him fight at a Rite of Gloria. GOOD HEAVENS.
    Leola A duellist, recently freed from thralldom. I wonder what he did there, and what he plans. I'm not reassured.
    Lianne Capable of wrangling an unruly lot of gamblers and keeping us all on task, and all of it for a good cause. Deft and generous.
    Liara Rogueish sort. Common, certainly, and that doesn't appear to trouble him in the slightest. Worth keeping an eye on if he does indeed do performances.
    Lorenzo Nice guy, interesting to talk to. I'd enjoy talking to him more, once his other responsibilities have lightened up for him.
    Lou Caspian is another eager recruit to join the Explorers. He seemed to get more excited about the prospect the more danger I mentioned. He's someone to look after, but if he keeps his spirit, he may be a good addition.
    Lucita A newcomer to Arx who uses small weapons like me. We had a spar and seemed evenly matched, lasting round after round till both tired and finally he overcame me. It was a good spar and he displayed good sportsmanship, an amicable disposition. Will be interesting to see how he gets along in months to come.
    Lys He's so very, very nice, and he fights like water. He's all fluid grace and furious power.
    Mailys Devil may care is the first phrase that comes to mind which often makes for the best intrigues.
    Malesh he preformed a Rite to Gloria against my own Lady Joslyn. His spirits remained high, despite his defeat. Still, he is a man of some noteworthy moves in combat!
    Marcas A very interesting, jovial man. A champion and an explorer? His life must be filled with adventure. I admit, I would very much like to take part in that, I look forward to talking to him more soon.
    Margerie If we're talking true first impressions? I mean, the man oiled himself up to fight Prince Luca in torchlight. I'm just glad neither of those boys caught themselves on fire! Risky business, that.
    Mirari A deep well, what you see on the surface isn't always what you'll find underneath.
    Monique Inpsiring and charming! I know he will give Nature's Fury a good home and loving care.
    Morrighan Not sure what tae make o' this one yet, this Thraxsworn. Claims tae be a fightin' sort, though I s'pose tha'll be found out soon enough. Will need tae converse more tae get a better assessment o' him. Seems easy goin' enough, amicable.
    Nierzen He thinks seeing Bastien upset would be funny. I liked that. That was about it.
    Norwood Every time this man fights I am in awe!
    Orathy Dog lover... them poor animals. Some champion eh. Good humor though, at least.
    Oriana We utterly failed at getting him picked on his birthday. We'll just have to try again!
    Otakar What a friendly and flamboyant gentleman! Although, he did introduce himself as a master Champion, I shouldn't be surprised. I ought to hear his stories sometime, I would wager he has more than a few.
    Petal He is friendly and likes birds and likes attention. He seems like a good champion and one who will have lots of friends.
    Petra Charming and quick, he flows like the swiftest of river currents. An excellent teacher, he is lightening with the small blade.
    Reese He seems playful and meeting him today has cheered me up some.
    Reigna He has the soul of a performer, and he clearly has a sharp mind. He is an adept student and has grown considerably since I have begun to train him. One cannot help but watch him to see what he will do next.
    Renato From all reports a master duelist, one of my would be rivals, eventually. He seems affable and entertaining, this is good, we shall have proper performances!
    Rhea Polite enough not to interrupt A Moment, rude enough to watch A Moment. Can't blame him! (If he ever brings it up, I will blame him very, very hard.)
    Rinel He's remarkably friendly, and his jokes are less biting and more kind than those of most in Arx.
    Roxana I came across the man while watching him in a sparring match, certainly noticing him before he did me (excusable only because he was sparring at the time). He held his own, and it was great fun to watch!
    Sabella Master Wild is a hilarious person to have a conversation with and I quite enjoy all of our talks. If he can live down being beaten by a bedsheets, he can best anything!
    Samael A man who loves dogs must be a good man. And he's brave enough to fight Joslyn, the Silken Knight of Pridehall. He is brave.
    Saoirse Caspian Wild. Cadenza's ...paramour. Saoirse is quite cautious of this man. Quite indeed.
    Selene An amusing fellow who I met at the commoner's council. I suppose he might be some kind of minstrel or bard or other sort of entertainer in the making, since he was making jokes in the middle of it. That takes me back! It was cute how he was first clueless, and then quite surprised to realize who I was.
    Shae Playful sort. Fun. A lot of fun. I would like to have more people around like him.
    Sorrel A performer and musician whom I can send out into the streets just as soon as I write the right song!
    Sparte A duelist with a quick wit and an admirable sense of humor.
    Stefano A duelist and champion as well as entertainer. He should have plenty of work once people turn from war preparation back to whatever they normally do to annoy each other.
    Tabitha He was kind to me when I was nervous at the tavern. I just hope I didn't make him feel too awkward.
    Talen Duelist. Young, carefree, probably needs to be hired. A Champion. Worth a few silver for a fun challenge sometime, maybe.
    Theron Good sleight-of-hand, some cheekiness and the ability to poke holes with a dagger so quickly that you get dazzled is always a good show. I like it!
    Thesarin The man has a... flair to him. Young, clean, vibrant and eager. My mirror image, eh?
    Tomwell Always nice to meet a fellow musician! I'll have to show him my violin some day.
    Torian There's a man who can through some darts, though he might have blown his luck early. Had enough left in the barrel to get him passed High Lord Victus though. A talent.
    Turo Entirely too flirty for me. There's something... unsettling about a man who has so many titles when none of them are related to his peerage or military service. Still, he seems nice enough.
    Valdemar He seems more down to earth than I would have imagined after witnessing one of his duels.
    Valery He is a Champion. And he seems nice. Looking for a fun patron. He can't get a better than mine, though.
    Verity An expert duelist, he said. Might as well go see for myself if I can. Didn't strike me as interested in politics and all that, for all that he might be exposed to such things by way of his work.
    Victus Look at him spin those blades. Spin spin, juggle juggle. He needs to hit something with him before I'm completely impressed, but he's got my attention.
    Violet A man of great skill with a small blade and some of the best footwork I've seen in awhile. I'll have a few bruises, maybe even a scar, to take home from my first meet, and spar, with him. But he also gave me a beautiful dagger and I gave him a promise in turn. Pass it on when the time comes and I find a person in need. I like this man. I hope to have a drink with him sometime.
    Wylla A humorous young man and a duelist. He seems very eager in all things! Coltish, like young Fatchforth. I woner if they're somehow related, as they seem similar in nature. 'Wild' is very much the right surname for this fellow.
    Zaina I still have so much to learn.
    Zalika He is a former thrall just as I am and a champion. I find so much comfort in his familiarity with my own past and his strength.
    Zoey A crass and crude commoner with little sense not to flirt with a noblewoman. Especially when it is unwanted.
