Prince Patrizio Pravus
Sir Tiberio once told me: 'Don't be an idiot'. Changed my life.
Social Rank: 3
Concept: Hoity-toity Setarcan Knight
Marital Status: single
Religion: Faith of the Pantheon
Vocation: Setarcan knight
Hair Color: light brown
Eye Color: green
Description: Patrizio is a charming man possessed of a winsome smile and dashing good looks. On the surface he is the very manifestation of what a knight should be: when he smiles he looks every bit the heroic horserider from the tales of peril and adventure. There is another layer, however, that immediately outs the man as a warrior of Setarco: vanity seeps from his every pore, from how his hair is styled like the crest of a regal creature, his beard is always well groomed and his armor is as for show as it is for protection. His green eyes are always focused on whoever he is talking to, and the glint with sharpness of mind that is hard to miss.
Personality: Style. Moxie. Beauty. Valor. Determination. Gallantry. Those are all the things Patrizio sells with his looks alone. The man just looks born to be a knight, to woo those around him, his behavior full of pomp, never short on manners and words. He would make himself beloved in the Oathlands, the Lyceum or even the Crownlands, but it is in Setarco he was born and it is Setarco he loves and embodies, always trying to carry his land with him in attitude and sass. Do you need a villain slain? He is your man. Do you need an army led? He will lead the charge. Do you need a man to lead a deadly secret mission?
Eeeh. That takes some convincing.
Does Patrizio have flaws? No. Commoners have flaws. Patrizio has quirks. Quite a few. Dirty people can stay six feet away. He can also be a little too mindful if another's armor is tinted in a more rich, or tasteful, way than his'. He will not show his face in the morning before spending at least a hour on his looks. All these little details pile up, but are greatly diminished or suppressed in the presence of other Pravus, to whom he only gives his best behavior.
Background: Hailing from a very distant cadet branch of the Great House of Pravus and growing up as a fan of the tales of Sir Tiberio Pravus, Patrizio was a non-entity in the affairs of the main family until the wars in the Saffron Chain allowed the man to shine, his homecoming happening at the Battle of Pieros when the knight was lauded as one of the biggest reveals in the battlefield. Wounded but alive, Patrizio was welcomed at the Crown of Setara, the palace of the family, while he healed and got to know the many other Sins.
To anyone else that would have been the crowning achievement of their lives, a honor and privilege, but Patrizio refused to stop while his streak was hot. The life in Setarco was intoxicating, the people of the city embracing him quick, and the man realized spending inordinate amounts of silver in pretty clothes and fancy galas agreed with him. Also, that his new tastes were very expensive.
So the cycle begun of ever increasing highs producing an ever-increasing desire to perform and stand shoulder to shoulder with his cousins, a dream long in the making finally within reach.
|Humor, wit, and focus all seem to converge in this man. I don't doubt that one who works in a windowless office filled with pointy metal objects and liquor may occasionally need to step out to rejoin the world.
|I met my new cousin at my wedding. Sebastian envies his hair, and I can well see why, but his smile and his courtly demeanor must also catch the eye. I'll look forward to his acquaintence on quieter days.
|Easygoing guy with an interesting hobby project. Not just a drinker, though, as he is soon off to war. Be interesting to see what he makes of himself! Perhaps a famoust bard, telling stories around distant camp fires based on his many hours in the taverns.
|The prince has always been among the more easy-going Pravosi. Kind, polite, quick with a smile, and hopefully won't injure himself someday with always rocking back on his chairs.
|I enjoy some whiskey in my tea and he enjoys wine in the morning. I'd say that makes a fine pairing over talks and advice. He has a wisdom and perspective that is very welcoming. I am glad we got to speak on such matters. Till we meet again
|Always a pleasure to cross paths with this Pravus Prince, should try to do it more often.
|A charming and handsome Pravus prince and one who's military career I'm interested in observing. He wears his station with ease yet does not make one feel like a lesser when standing in his presence.
|Seems like the /proper/ noble type at first, but he's got a bit of zest to him.
|He's alright, for a Pravus. I still think he's harboring secret doodles in that folio though...
|An affable and eloquent Prince of House Pravus, I believe we may have much more in common than we do differences. It seems he may be of a like mind.
|Seems to have his head screwed on right.
|He seems an intelligent man that doesn't immediately shy away from the finer tactics of subtle warfare. It is no wonder he is the Prince-General.... I do hope that he accepts our offer of aid.
|A Prince who seems to take duty seriously. It is always an honor to meet another one of those.
|He seems to have an attitude for banter, which is something I appreciate from time to time. That it came during a blissful pot of tea made the afternoon pass by a bit more pleasantly.
|His Highness and I have been friends for quite some time, and he is ever a pleasant man to keep company. Never a dull moment.
|Someone who understands the weight of duty and what it means. I would like very much to hear his thoughts on other subjects as well, as he speaks plainly and without frills.
|A jovial man, whose conversation is warm and inviting. There are indeed more layers, of which makes the topics varied and interesting.
|My first Pravus of the season, and a witty oneit seems. But his hair is what really makes him stand out from the crowd, I wonder whether it's a wig, or if it's his own. .I quite want to run my fingers through it. Perhaps I will
|While it may appear that the weight of the worlds events hang from his shoulders, it might be his hair that holds it all up. Or he's hiding a most impressive warrior under the smile and hair.
|I think we lucked out when we were talking about killing each other with spoons and the most gracious Prince of them all was there to overhear as opposed to, well, anybody bloody else. He reminds me of a father I never had, to be honest.
|A most agreeable Prince with a wonderful sense of humor. The times I've run into him he's really livened up the conversation - but he doesn't get stupid. He remembers he is royalty, but doesn't let it stiffen him. Seems like a good friend to have.
|I've had a few brief run-ins with Prince Patrizio and now a much longer one. Intelligent, a good conversationalist, with an eye toward the ominous events that lurk in the future. Yet he's not fearful, instead looking at it under a scope of adventure despite the daunting nature of it.
|His eyes are playful, his coins are generous, and his words breathe out the weight of his duty, unless it's paperwork.
|Another noble quick to ditch formalities, he has a watchful intense look about him. I imagine he is the type of fellow you want on your side
|Gwenna's counterpart in House Pravus is as much the soul of courtesy as I remember.
|I sould never believe the rumors and gospip. Not all Pravis have two heads, snake tongue, and warts on their nose. This nobleman is wone I think would enjoy drinking with me. Still hard to tell, but promising none the less.
|A Pravus, and the first that I've met since arriving in Arx. Seemed friendly enough and was happy to slum it in the Trader's Tavern. I'd say I'm surprised, but he seemed friendly enough, so I'm not.
|This Pravus does not seem shy of giving his opinion. I am unsure of the man thus far.
|Carries himself like a knight, with a lot of grace and poise. I'd like to see if he's as good on the battlefield as he is on ice skates.
|He is polite and engaging, and I hand enjoyed our conversations however short.
|Interesting tactics in bee-sting fencing. Great hair!
|a welcoming and dashing man who invited me to sit with him, the absolute image of what I imagined a southern knight would be.
|Not much of a rum drinker, but we won't hold it against him.
|A wise man knows when to avoid (personal) combat. I can approve of that.
|Pravus. That sums up most things I might long to know about him. I am sure like most of his family, we shall become very good friends.
|He's eloquent and has a great sense of humor, that sort of perfect banter that draws you in and makes you grin. Nice company on a winter day.
|First seen th' Prince Patrizio of Pravus when I went up to deliver the mulled cider and the pies and whatnot to the Black Fox at the end of the Harvest like the Clements suggested. This man Patrizio looks gallant and boisterous, poised and confident, striding on right into the place with a whole passel of guards and heading straightaways like a bee line right for the private booth with the most notable nobles of 'em all holes up in it. That right there is gumption, and rightly so. Thas' why them as Princes are Princely, that poise right there. Seemed a charming lad a'top 'o it all. More power to him! Hope good things find 'im.
|He seems a delight, if a little quiet. One does so love sharing songs and he seems to enjoy them.
|A very social noble with an ability to make anyone feel included. His greeting was what got me to the table of nobles at the Trader's Tavern.
|He talks like a typical noble, which is to say, at length with little substance. His conversation is pleasant, his smile is pleasant, his eyes are pleasant--everything is all very pleasant.
|A happy sort. Too happy. I'm not sure if its him or the wine.
|My cousin is burdened by his duties as General, but his dedication to them knows no limits. He seems to be attentive to others and knows where to seek for inspiration, which will help him in the long run.
|He'll never admit that he enjoys the spotlight of being Archduke. Which is one of the reasons he'll make such a fine Archduke, really.
|Twice now I have encountered this man. Both have lead me to believe he is an intelligent man.
|Had I not known better, I might have thought Prince Patrizio an Oathlands knight in the finest traditions. Instead I find something marginally more interesting, a mix of this chivalry with Pravosi ideals that is going to make great things of him.
|Charming, good looking and immaculately dressed. This Prince is an example of how a noble should present themselves.
|Another pretty boy prince. I hope this one takes their position seriously.
|A jovial Pravus Prince with a seemingly light heart.
|A famous admiral here in Arx, and I think more experienced in matters of war than anyone in my little family, valiant though some of us (not myself) may be.
|Prince Patrizio Pravus is someone I've meant to catch up with since his arrival in the city, and just never seemed to manage it, even when we were at the same events. A bonfire in the ward, however, brought him by and we finally had a chance to speak. He is what I expect from a Pravosi prince, and his dedication to duty and Gloria are admirable.
|At first, witty and pleasant on a charmingly surface level, but dig a little deeper, and he's quite insightful and honorbound.
|He reminds me the reasons to brave the social landscape more often. Warm, winsome, and genuine in comparison to countless of his counterparts, his is a company worth seeking.
|Always lovely to meet relatives I had not known before. I'm grateful for what he was able to share with me, bleak as it was.
|A bit stiff for a Pravus, but what do I know?
|Most generous in giving the most precious gift one can give, time. He makes an effort to get to know you beyond what mere niceties demand. His heart and his bearing are most suited to his station in life. Although he may have been born to it, that is no strike against him in the slightest as his deeds are all the merit one could hope for.
|A royal of good spirit and splendid humor. He helped lighten my sour mood after that incident at the Ambassador.
|Too charming by half. It's simply unfair.
|Witty and entertaining, with a hairstyle that appears to defy gravity. But also surprisingly dynamic. There seems to be quite a bit beneath the meticulously well-groomed surface of this prince.
|This Pravus prince seems to like his ale, though I get the impression he likes /many/ different drinks. Recently elevated to both a Voice of Pravus /and/ a General, it would seem his star is in the ascent. I was surprised he remembered me from a brief meeting a while ago, but perhaps that's part of the secret of his success.
|Doesn't introduce himself with his noble titles so there's certainly room for improvement, but his military accomplishments are honorable and impressive, and he's pretty which is really all one NEEDS in a prince, anyway. All in all, pros outweigh the cons.
|Not afraid to poke fun at himself, there is a pompousness about him, yet a want to look past and grow past this. I see an effort, and for his pompous words and attitude along with the general charm and air of him it makes for quite the man. He's engaging, entertaining, and quite plesant. I get the feeling he is growing as a person and while I do enjoy spending time around him, I look even more forward to how he will develop. I'm not sure as much if you spend time /with/ Prince Patrazio, as uch as spent time in the /presence/ of Prince Patrazio. Everywhere he is, seems to break out into party, song, or revelry in a not uncomfortable way. - This is a good thing.
|A nice man. Didn't even mention he was a Prince.
|Carries and shares their opinions on noble marriage which speaks of their traditional streak. When there is danger or chaos around, then you want someone who can speak such calming in the room.
|I'm not sure I can ever forgive him for suggesting Bastion should be burned when the Traitor's forces took over the city, but he has since had several other ideas that have redeemed him; at least a little bit. He's not afraid to make suggestions, even if they might be unpopular ones. I can give him that.
|A cousin that modeled himself after my father, I like him quite well! Only a hair jealous.
|An entertaining Prince who is taking life as they are. Something we must laugh about lest we cry. I look forward to all those lessons he plans to bestow upon me.
|I picked his voice out of a crowd, thought it sounded familiar, and it turns out we are cousins twice removed. Memorably hospitable and gregarious. I'm grateful fate chanced us past one another at the Salon.
|This new head of Pravus seems to have a good head on his shoulders, reassuring me that my supporting Adrienne in pursuing her marriage into that house was done in sound mind.
|Extremely cordial, laidback, easy an' charming in his own sort of way. He's a Prince? Not hard to imagine him going far and gaining popularity, among commoners and noble alike. If that's what he wants.
|Casual and calm in the room, a fine presence to be around and a good carouser of the city
|A Prince that also understands that if there is more than simply cookies at stake then one needs to seek them out.
|The polite veneer must be just that, no? He seems like he'd break hearts and noses as easily.
|Thing for good drink and fun conversation. We need to do it again.
|He does have fabulous hair but I would still like to see him with a lavender bob. Maybe he's a little vain but he's adorable in a goofy way.
|Pravus. Not what I expected. He seems almost nice. Pity. I'm sure that is good for him though.
|The Voice of Pravus. Bearer of the weight of the world. He seems happy enough though. Good for him!
|Why did he do that? That makes no sense - just WHY?
|His Highness speaks with an airs of wishing to pass on his knowledge, which he does, unsolicited. Those are important moments, for those with the ears to hear it.
|I'm sure Pravus is proud of his intelligence, confidence and competence.
|A general and a prince. He has some decent grasp of war, from what our conversation revealed. Polite. Better armor than most of the Arvani.
|A fellow Knight, first met at the Bee, although I didn't see much of him there. Luckily this problem was easily addressed when I caught him at the Fox later on. A quick wit, fair features, appreciates humor. What's -not- to like?
|A Pravus, but I shall attempt not to hold that against him. He was a surprisingly easy patient, attentive and cooperative. At least he appeared to be so. Pravus though, yes? So who knows. Still. Charming enough and did not make me cringe as several of his breathern do.
|A southern Prince with a good sense of humor. He seems perfectly at home in the Ambassador Salon.
|It's wonderful to see Patrizio again, and I look forward to getting to know him better now we're both in Arx together. I wonder if his fame trailed him all the way from Setarco... we shall see.
|His confident yet gentle demeanor, combined with a strong sense of responsibility, makes it clear that he is not just a leader by title, but someone who genuinely cares for our family's well-being.
|It shall be interesting to see what will come of the man who makes the decisions for his people himself. How this will in truth, change him for the better or the worse.
|That smile could melt all the snow in the North, it is a shame he feels the name to swing a sword! He could have all the courtesans in Arx lined up around his door, well, all but the Northern girls. They might raise an eyebrow the first time he cries about his feet on the cold floor in the morning..
|A proper example of what it means to not only be capable, but to be in a place where capability and devotion are rewarded.
|He's got great hair! Goals.
|Master planner of the armies of the Compact. Able to work a conversation easily and unite people it seems while keeping his cool at other challenges.
|The prince protests too much - he'd make a fine model. At least he seems good humored about the conversation.
|He seems awfully cheerful. His previous self and how he is now are complete opposites. I wonder what he leans toward most.
|He has strong charisma and a natural inclination to be a great leader. He also recognises that others need opportunities to test themselves and grow, and that's commendable.
|I will confess that I had not expected to be so taken, though clearly I was. His nature open and warm, his manner respectful and charming as one would expect of man of his station, but in truth there is so much more to him. Genuine kindness and generosity of spirit that I admire very much. And, he seems to like my Hart. I hope he returns often. I suspect he is one that I will grow to like very much.
|It is good that the Pravosi are getting more outgoing to match their outspokenness.
|Honor among politicians is an interesting concept.
|Meeting the Prince of Pravus. I wonder what people will say when I ask about him? To me he seems laid back and charming. Like someone who is confident and calm. Subtly, I think he knows he is worth much to his family and compact, but his is the confidence of someone who doesn't need to brag either, can learn about others and enjoy the moment.
|This man needs to be recognized more for their deeds versus being tramped upon by cousins.
|He bears the burden of leadership better than one who gives him only a superficial glance could guess. Any who would judge him for how he preens does him an injustice.
|It's no wonder I spent fifty years in the streets, once Pravus took power, all us odd folks have a fighting chance. You can sit and drink with their nobles and not be stared at like you are growing cocks out of your face.
