Description: The man stands just a hair's breadth under six feet and his weathered, tan skin is a telltale to the man's history. Like many of the Malvici family, Domonico has aristocratic features that point to a man of fine breeding. His blue eyes are dark wells that compliment the darker shades of his hair and the structure of his face. His body looks like he, as most of the family, has spent a lot of time in combat training and in hard work. There is little excess left over for the man who looks like he could sweep the room with a blade or a lass off her feet.

Personality: Domonico knows why he was sent to the Fleet and he knows very well what it did for him. The lesson brought home the wise consideration of action and he keeps that at the fore of his mind through much of his day. While he can be the rapid-fire decision-maker on the sea, when it comes to personal and business interactions he tends to be methodical and pragmatic. That said? Like all Malvici's, he grew up in a family built on merit and he prides himself on knowing that he did not fall into his position by accident.

Background: Raised as one of the standard bearers of the Malvici banner, Domonico was treated roughly on purpose. The family wanted him to lead troops and be ready to battle anything from abyssal creatures to political maneuvering of the Lyceum. It developed a heated temper from him at a young age, proving his backbone and dedication to the family before most kids his age had a personality. Eventually it got him in trouble and sent to the Malvici fleet so the trouble he got into could be limited to the ship he was on.

It proved a good move and his temper has faded somewhat over time, replaced with a steel determination that comes with a sea-borne swordsman. He is said to be a rising star in the Malvici fleet with three ships under his command. Its rumored he wants eventual command of the fleet, as well. In the meantime he has taken to mentor those younger members like he had once been, developing strength and ability out of rough stone. The whispers about the trade routes and the Empyrean have brought him to Arx to prove that he is capable of not just command and leadership, but that he can hold it in waters he has not even explored himself - political and literal.

Name Summary
Aahana A sea captain who has nabbed my attention. I can't wait for him to regale me with tales of his adventures on the seas.
Adora Hasn't learned the first rule of business, which is to always be selling. Regardless of setting. I don't like him. But I don't need to to get rich off his friends.
Aella He seems about as fun as... Well. There's not much that would be comparable on that level. He is not very fun.
Alarissa A brute. A bore. Lacking manners. Unlike every other Malvici I've come across.
Alessia He seems to be a patient tutor despite any annoyances against his pupils. I admire that and would like to test my skill against his one day.
Alexis Being told that my swords are spoken of even in the City of Swords is a sure way of getting on my good side. Lord Domonico seems like an interesting fellow.
Alrec Seems like a humble of sort Silk, a strange creature to come across in the Hundred Cities Inn.
Andry A Commodore of House Malvici and new to the city. Met him in Solace Square. Wouldn't mind chatting with him again when I'm not holding a broom.
Andry Malvici, that's a fun name to say
Ardee Quiet, seemingly very stern and straight foward. Maybe there's a squishy shell underneath it all.
Arianna What a very powerful man. In his presence and on the field of battle. He is at once a very intimidating man but also welcoming in a way that is very nice to experience. The Malvici have always been kind to me and I get to meet new family members all the time but this guy was pretty different somehow.
Armani I hope you're not hunting /me/, Lord Domonico
Artorius A worthy warrior. Fought this cousin of mine in a well-fought spar...he is worthy and f the Malvici name and I expect good things in his future.
Artur I met Lord Domonico in the training center. We sparred a little and though I got the better of him in the end, he got more than a few good hits in. A worthy opponent with a beautiful sword! I look forward to our next match up!
Belladonna Wits and boldness. Those are qualities that many try to emulate, but almost never with any semblance of grace. He manages, however. Commendable.
Berenice He makes quite a /splash/, doesn't he? Literally, I mean. There is splashing over there.
Bianca I hold House Malvici in high regard, its membership being some of the most diligent and prepared denizens of the Compact in these times of darkness. Domonico Malvici is no different. Always ready to face what our world stands against.
Brigida Laughed at the idea that his generation were too prim. Oh, how little he knows.
Cadenza Seems so serious all the time but there's a sense of humor there. I look forward to trading naval notes with the good Commodore.
Calypso He reminds me of what it was like to be single and have all that drive. He knows what he wants and he isn't afraid to be a stone cold professional to do it. Domonico will continue to make the Malvici name proud.
Cassandra An impressive warrior. I am not a first line fighter, but I am glad that men such as him are at the Crown's disposal.
Coraline He seems nice enough but good gods man it would be so much easier to talk to him with some pants on, conversations in the nude are so distracting!
Cullen Definitely favors the Malvici line - seems rather serious and has the facial features I've come to associate with the Duchess and Eirene. I hope he also favors the same no nonsense militarism and plain-spokeness that I find so appealing about their House.
Cullen One of the House of War, apparently a skilled soldier at sea. It should be good to see what all he can do to prepare.
Dariel Quite friendly, but oh so serious. If he cracked a smile I fear it might harm the recipient.
Delilah His excellent taste in apples aside, Domonico has courage under fire. He responded immediately to protect Lady Miranda during a fracas in the market, and his willingness to put himself in harm's way to protect children when I called for help was immediate. I owe him a debt of thanks for his courage.
Dora Another cousin. One of so many. I don't think he has heard about my shenanigans. Or if he has he doesn't care. Either way is good for me. Maybe we'll go sailing soon to boot!
Duarte Commodore Malvici, responsible for clearing the pirate threat. We walked in on him during a workout and he was eager to help train my retainer. I may seek him out myself. I am getting a little chubby and the activity would do me some good.
Elora Unabashed. Knows who he is. Those are good qualities.
Emily A Commodore of Lycene make and a Malvici. He seems pleasant enough but am not sure what kind of man he is due to a reaction from Lady Ray Laveer. All the same I can see nothing to mark him as one to be avoided. I am curious though.
Enoch Interesting fellow. He seems to have a fun relationship with Miranda. It's nice to see people so happy, even if he seems more a warrior than a socialite.
Evaristo Obviously a warrior. Those scars... I bet each one has an impressive story.
Faruq Has a good head on his shoulders, trying to stop a crazed Baron from taking things beyond what they should be. We will speak more later I know it but I like what I have seen so far.
Fecundo First visit to the Southport Training Ring and, in Lord Domonico Malvici, I may have found a good training partner closer to home than I have been traveling. Will have to be more of a regular.
Fiora He likes to appear as a stalwart bull, but he's far too eager to be a bull.
Forato Domonico, a teacher of combat. I am impressed that would so willingly teach others how to defeat them. Truly such a life calling is uterly selfless.
Gaston A very serious soldier of House Malvici. Looks to be not an unfriendly man, just a somewhat distant one.
Harlex A military man. We ain't the same breed. But good with the steel, for what it's worth.
Helia Gave me a good run for my money when we were sparring! I really thought he had me there. Nice manners too. Dignified, good sport. I had fun fighting against him.
Holt A fighter with the good sense to de-escalate things when it's needed. And he has a damn handsome suit of armor.
Ian A really patient man.
Ignacio Commodore Malvici seems to hold a blade well. He stood toe to toe with my wife, which isn't easy to do. He handled it all with grace and nobility, I am certain he is a good asset to House Malvici for sure.
Isidora A gracious martial trainer. Though does he own a shirt? He will catch a cold if he doesn't.
Jeffeth A noble most dour, not shy about speaking his opinions. He's probably a good sort, once you peel past the unpleasant exterior.
Jennyva I met him at the Ambassador with his protege and student. Apparently a hard man to impress, according to Prince Jasher!
John Lord Domonico Malvici is a nice conversationalist. I enjoyed speaking with him.
Josephine So very skilled at saving people from dogs and disaster in the market. One wants him at their back.
Juliana A Malvici, bone, blood and soul. Isn't that all that really needs to be said?
Jyri Coming to the defense of people with risk of getting bitten by ferocious dogs? Nothing to not like, about that.
Kaia A quite handsome, muscled and well tanned man; isn't afraid to show he's nakedness. An amicable spirit I first met at The Grotto in a bit of an awkward momentum. Overall, he seems nice.
Karadoc We've met before - he and I - at the Empyrean, I think. Although, watching him spar is far more illuminating. He is like an unsheathed weapon, sharp and always - always at the ready.
Leola The commodore seems typical of the Malvici - firmly committed to his sphere and at his element within it. I look forward to seeing how the city changes him
Leonidas Keeps his spear by his side at all times. That's what I call a badass.
Liara Struck me as stolid and serious, though he did manage to smile a bit. Martially inclined, at any rate, and he seemed a decent fellow.
Lore Everything I had heard of him is true. He comports himself well, and is a credit to his family. I do hope he'll remember me the next time he's looking to get something made!
Lucita A Malvici fealty member who oversees a group of war galley's called the Raptors. He seems capable, kind toward my children and myself, keeps himself in shape and asks appropriate and astute questions. Will be interesting to get to know him better.
Lys He comes across as a little bit stern, one has to wonder what's underneath all that placidness.
Macda He listens, he's polite...just needs to work on the storytelling aspects and he'd be a pretty good companion.
Macda Cousin of the cousin of my favourite Greatsword in Arx's wielder. A handsome addition to a snow pile of Solace seekers this morning.
Malika Fascinating man, I do admire anyone who is as dedicated as he seems to be to the sea. Will have to try and lure the man out on the water.
Martino My brother, always and will be family and like family there will always be a heated discussion or planning events. But of course Martino is still the better looking brother.
Merek Domonico assisted people in the market when dogs were released. I am glad he moved to help many other people.
Mikani Patient teacher. Focused. Large duel going on and he can still help his student. I approve.
Miranda Always a delight to meet family, if second removed. And with a quick wit to boot! Love that!
Mirella A lord of serious aspect, armoured in the red of Malvici. Dignified in appearance and bearing, as one might expect him to be.
Mirk A nobleman from the Lyceum who believs in swords not words. There's a contradiction, but an interesting one, all the same. Maybe he can escape the Lyceum's reputation.
Monique Ouch. That had to hurt! Saw him get trounced by Sorrel.
Nicholaus An bit stuffy, but I'm well used to that from my family. Certainly doesn't lack for courage, however. Could be an interesting one to watch.
Nico A solid warrior, and an honest man. He was modest in victory, and a valuable ally against another team in sparring. Even more, he was instrumental in helping a situation turned bad. I feel like I can trust him.
Niklas Malvici Lord. Man of few words. Not a big fan of the theater. I SHALL PROVE HIM WRONG!
Nuala The southern desert wolf did not expect such smoothness from the north, nor do I blame him - surprises can be found in many ways. A strong combatant, and an open mind, serve him well.
Nurie Handsome and fiercely graceful spear-fighter. It was truly something to watch him spar and train with Prince Jasher! And yet for all that fierceness, he was quite kind and courtly!
Petal Seems charming and into Lady Aahana, but I can't blame in there. They both seem to have good taste! She seems social and good at talking with people.
Prisila A man who knows his shit. I look forward to engaging in the wars to come alongside the Malvici Commodore.
Quenia A Lord of House Malvici. It seems he is skilled in open combat over the waters. He'll also be marrying Lady Aahana, so I hear. She'll make a wonderful addition to the family, and I hope he treats her well.
Reese A ship admiral who doesn't give orders over trivial things. He seems like a descent guy.
Rey At no fault of his own, he scares the crap out of Rey. Hopefully in time they can meet again and she will be more calm. Otherwise he seems like a good Lord, atleast from a distance.
Richard Lord Domonico Malvaci is a great sparring partner. I appreciated the short time we sparred.
River He thinks very highly of himself, though...not sure if it is pride or accompishment that motivates him.
Sabella Lord Domonico appears to be a man of few words, but I saw that smile when he talked about Reese and her pies, so I know that there's a talker in there somewhere! Luckily for him, I can talk enough for both of us until he feels the need to interject!
Sabine Unnecessary chivalry but chivalry all the same.
Samuele Well it seems that all manner of beautiful things can come out of the woodwork when you least expect it.
Sebastian The Lord Malvici enters a bar in armor, /and/ refuses a quite generous and genuine offer of a very lovely wine. What horror is this? Still, he seems a dutiful and dedicated solider and sailor, and those skills can't be faulted.
Sheena He's a bit on the intimidating side. Almost scary but his actions seem well intentioned. He's probably a very kind person.
Sorina How delightful to see that charm runs in the Malvici family, along with dashingly handsome looks. A devastating pair, to be sure. Best to keep an eye out for this one.
Sorrel A fine fighter, even if he might be a little rusty still. I hope to have his strong sword arm at my side as friend in the future, but I think we'll always have fun sparring when it doesn't matter. All in all, a rather nice fellow.
Talwyn Wise is the man who knows the value of knowledge now for future endeavors. Grief too often strikes when a choice fact or key insight went without notice. A scholar, then, particularly of warfare. Though reserved at first, he appears far warmer than first meets the eye.
Teagan Displayed a shameful lack of manners and an inability to recognize the proper expectations of the situation around him.
Turo Who wouldn't be concerned that something might swim up and bite one's bits and pieces off?
Verity He's a good sport, and that is a vital quality in a city full of nobles.
Vitalis Books and water don't mix! Keep those passions well separated, Commodore!
Ysabel A man of character and steel, perfectly pragmatic. He helped me piece together my disordered thoughts, and provided me with some confidence for the future. What a good man!
Ysabel He came in to an inn, brushed snow off of himself. Apologized. And then went back into the snow. I suppose circumstances more odd have happened in Arx but... This Inn. Some of the strangest things.
Zoey He seems to be pleasant enough, I suppose? Mostly, I seem to see him on the outskirts of social gatherings, so I've not yet had an opportunity to observe him in any great detail. Still. An affable sort.
