Description: With a bold roguishness smile and eyes that glitter green with speckles of gold in the sunlight, Valenzo's charms are easy to see. His hair is kept rather long, bleached blonde by the sun over so many voyages at sea. His skin was likely once a warm olive tone, now blanched and leathered by the warm southern sun. His broad shoulders and calloused hands tell of a life of hard work and determination.
Personality: Valenzo's time in Arx has changed him; where he was once a laid-back and somewhat whimsical individual, hard truths learned about himself and the world around him have left their scars, and it would be hard not to notice even the brightest of his smiles carry some hint of bitterness.
Still, given the choice, smile and laugh he does, and while his damned insatiable curiosity is a flame that cannot be quenched, no matter how deeply in over his head it gets him -- his quick wits somehow manage to carry him through.
Background: Valenzo grew up on the docks of Southport. A rather busy port city, young Valenzo came in contact with all sorts of people. Each with their own story to tell. He would sit with them and listen while his father, a merchant ship captain, was busy. Growing up on the stories of far off places, adventures on the deeps and treasure to be found, left him a very curious boy full of wanderlust. Though, like every good Southport Citizen, when Valenzo came of age, he joined the military to serve his time and give back to the city that raised him.
Being placed in the same unit as Lord Artorius Malvici, nephew of Duchess Adona Malvici had its perks. The crew would sail along the southern passages of Arvum on patrol or what have you. It was the same trip where Artorius landed in Crownlands Ports and met his first wife, that Valenzo would decide right then and there that he had a calling. Treasure hunter. Listening to the tales of the adventurous Ashford bunch, urged Valenzo to pursue his passions. When his military years were up, Valenzo acquired a small ship and crew of his own and set sail.
Several years later, word made its way across the seas that Lord Artorius has become Count Artorius and taken a new cluster of islands for the Compact. The draw of adventure, helping to settle a new land and discover what there is to discover about them, lures Valenzo back in to the service of his former military companion. Having sworn loyalty to House Magnotta, Valenzo now finds himself at the right hand of the ruling family.
