Description: This man stands at around five foot ten, while he has a lissome and a somewhat muscular build to his form, and also skin which is dusky in tone. The male has smooth hair which comes towards his chin, the color which is like midnight and sable, although metallic-like tones, have been fashioned within that roguishly unkempt mane. He has eyes much like a brightened golden amber which shine with emotions. He has a smooth scar upon his cheek, in the shape of a cross-slashed X, to the right. He has a decorative, black tattoo of a rose on his full back.

(He has a medium amount of stubble upon his face, while he has a scarf upon his lower face. He also has a sheath upon his main hip, and crossbow upon his back while he seems to be dressed up with his clean, silk attire. Some of that hair of his seems to be silver, his gaze having a smouldering quality, while he has a set of protective alchemist goggles, which settles upon the scarf he wears.)

Personality: He is quite a kind man, and will often assist people that need it. While he can be aloof when in his thoughts, he tends to be idealistic, and experiments often with different things. He tends to have a positive view of the world, even when it can be quite dark. For where he is from, some might think he is too optimistic when it comes to most things.

Background: Merek Black is a simple man, who was born to a quite simple family. Both his parents, Tanto Black and Teena Black had two twin children, Merek and Malena. Both parents were farmers, for the Great House Velenosa. Also the family has owed their allegiance to them, as far back as can be remembered. The children would be no different in allegiance.

Merek was the more curious of the two, who were born as twins. He would be the one to get into all the troublemaking, and he was also the one who was often idealistic about the world, as well as all the knowledge it had to offer. He made friends easy, and was a little bit more educated than most, but at times he could be aloof.

He became interested in metalwork, and working with various chemicals as well, which saw him becoming apprenticed to a smith as he became older. The interest he had, would see him become a metalsmith, working with all manner of metal and chemicals, to try and make the best weapon and armor he could, as well as making basic medicines. though often he would find that will more than one practice, he was often a master at none, but passable. Now in adulthood, he travels around with his surname, attempting to bring home wealth for all his family, and for his own to make a life.

  • Name Summary
    Arianna A brave man who fought for the city and shielded his brethren from harms.
    Calaudrin Merek Black is an industrious young man that always seems to be up to something. I wish I was that busy when I was his age. Instead I was standing on lower boroughs corners, ah well. I caught a lot of muggers.
    Christine Generous kid. First person Christine crossed words with at the city.
    Clara Friendly man, I enjoyed speakin' with him. He was kind enough to offer me some pointers on how ta go about gettin' involved in the city.
    Eirlys He fought well in the the battles the city has faced. He helps where he can and is kind.
    Esoka A man of many skills, it seems. I'm not sure what to make of him much of the time, but he seems to have good intentions.
    Ferrando Solid guardsman with a lot of various interests from what I hear. Ended up on a Bringer hunt with him in the Lowers during the siege. We got split up so I don't entirely know what he was up to, but he's definitely got bravery enough to spare.
    Isolde A kind man looking for guidance. I only hope I can give him what he seeks.
    Katarina Katarina's encounters with the Iron Guardsman has been relatively sparse, but he seems well enough of a gentleman. She's not heard much hearsay that would cast him in a negative light; quite the contrary, actuall, and she's interested in their paths crossing soon.
    Mira Super sweet, he's one of my first and favorite clients. Even if it was his last will and testament.
    Petal he seems nice and I hope to visit his shop and know him better later.
    Reese Reese really likes Merek. She remembers when they were both new Iron Guards together and it feels like so long ago now! While she has got busy, she sees Merek as a friend and an ally and hopes for that to continue.
    Rose A voice I met in the Shrine of Limerance. I could tell he was a nice man.
    Saedrus A inquisitive and studious young man, that I am sure of. I have not had a great deal to do with young Merek, this evening at the Rectory was the most I had ever heard him talk. He seems a very keen disciple.
    Selene One of the House's long term patrons. At first glance, he's a bit of a rough sort in the way that might seem out of place in the house, but first glances are what they are. But he's obviously a very good supporter of the house, and potentially a valuable friend, so I'm sure there will be plenty of reason for us to explore his relation with Selene and the House more in the future.
    Silas Merek Black is a scrupulous young Officer who can be counted to do the non-stabbing related things that Silas has trouble with.
    Thena I guess when you have a diamondplate sword, everything in the world looks like something to slice.
    Tyrval It really was an impressive over-dramatic wave of his cloak.
