Duke Asger Crovane
You see the way I see the game is, we're all going to die someday, so I'm betting I can get all my enemies to reach that point before I do.
Description: Standing tall, he is set with a powerful frame, broad shoulders, strong musculature, and a fair complexion. Pulled back in a loose braid, his dark auburn hair falls just below his shoulders. Set beneath two dark thick brows are his hazel green eyes and a noble aquiline nose that while fairly straight, shows signs of having been broken in the past. His hands are rough and calloused, showing numerous scars both new and old along the knuckles and backs.
Personality: Gregarious, and outgoing off the battlefield, Asger doesn't put much heed on the social niceties of high society, preferring simple courtesy when he can get away with it. Drawn to the randomness of chance, he is drawn to games of luck and the adrenaline that comes with gambling.
Background: Born the youngest son of the Crovanes of the far north, Asger has found his place in the family on the battlefields against the Abandoned clans around them. The man betting his life on the outcome of every raid, skirmish, and patrol, reveling in those narrow moments when he dances a hairsbreadth away from losing it all. The glee and laughter he displays in the face of his enemies, and his blood soaked appearance earning him a rather barbarous reputation. Even as a child growing up he displayed a penchant for brawling with his peers, gregarious and quick to forgive whatever slight real or imagined might have spurred the fight to begin with.
