Lord Drake Wyrmguard
Oh of course, my lady. I would love to escort you home to make sure you're safe.
Description: Lean and athletic, the young man standing here is a prime example of youthful exuberance. His waist is narrow and shoulders broad in that V shaped torso that comes from regular exercise, the slimness of youth and the define musculature to match. A curly mop of finger length brown hair sits on top of his head with natural cowlick and waves that keep it out of a boyishly cute face. Eyes the same shade as his hair are bright and light up even more when he gives an easy, straight toothed smile.
Personality: Friendly and amicable, he has always been one of the more easy going Wyrmguards. Of course, that's a result of his older brother taking the brunt of responsibility, and so he was left free to wander the world and have his own pursuits. He is loyal to his family almost to a fault doing what he can to support them when needed, but sometimes he gets distracted when an aesthetically pleasing person comes along. Still, like his older brother, once you've earned him as a true friend, then he is one for life.
Background: The youngest brother of Richard Wyrmguard, Drake has always been the mischevious sort. It was only his admiration for his father and his uncle Marquis Denis Wyrmguard, that his natural inclination towards mischief and trouble was tempered. Still, he got along well, and has always been a bit of a charmer, and the stories of knights and how people responded to such stalwart protectors of the land is what drove him through his training. He was always close to his family, as loyal as any Wyrmguard can be, but there was an untapped wanderlust that drove him to explore the city of Arx and other lands much sooner than his big brother.
It was there that he learned and trained to be a champion as well, often leaving a trail of broken hearts along the way. On one such encounter, he met Prince Luca, and was trained in showmanship. He was fond of the older man and eventually joined the champions guild as a result, befitting his talents. It's what he has been doing in the city, while still keeping an eye out for his family, but who says the women of Wymguard should have all the fun?
|Alexis||Lord Drake is as easygoing as ever, it seems. And I knew he'd eventually find a duty he'd thrive in. Perhaps I can aid him in that, if High Hill goes as we hope.|
|Appolonia||A good sport and a good man. Someone who listens to a scholar. He'll go far, if he's not eaten by zombies.|
|Bianca||The light-hearted counterpart to his ever-weighted brother. In some ways, I worry he might lack the sense of responsibility Richard possesses... but perhaps I am letting my own losses burden me with unnecessary concern. At the very least, I think now more than ever we need people like him.|
|Denica||A Wyrmguard who seems more at ease with life than those I've met before. Besides knowing how to enjoy himself, he also seems to appreciate art and has even invited me to see some of the dragon paintings of his House. Definitely promising!|
|Dianna||Gods above. He's just so damned /deliciously/ cute, isn't he?|
|Iseulet||Might have a repuation as a flirt, but he was all business with me. Which was refreshing and I think, allowed me to get a good read on him. I think he'll be a great sword for Highhill and his new house - do them proud. I can see why he's a rising Valardin star.|
|Jourdain||It would be pleasant, to be so young and without care.|
|Katryn||Every bit the match to Lord Richard. I wonder what tremendous breadth of skills you possess? I do not think I mind his insistence on 'decorative' armor. It gives him an air of daring refinement, to go with his fine humors.|
|Korka||He's going to run off and get himself killed. Can't say I didn't try to warn him.|
|Mikani||Knight and Card Player. Makes for an interesting evening.|
|Philippe||It is difficult for me to understand how this man can be Richard's brother, but I suppose that siblings seek to differentiate themselves dramatically from each other. A man of some repute in the arena, some say, but he seems perilously frivelous. I hope that Richard keeps careful watch on him or he may end up spending his doctoring time patching him up from needless battles.|
|Ras||A weird silk who waited with me for his order at Apollo's shop in the Uppers. Actually seemed to care bout folk and how everybody's sad, and was sorry he'd never met Josephine Arcuri.|
|Reese||Good company, appreciates female fighters, charming and a warrior off to do great thngs for this house. I cannot wait to see him in a duel.|
|Richard||My brother, unfortunately, remains very much my brother.|
|Sydney||Red armor, silver tongue, and a nose whose color I have yet to ascertain. A fighter and a flirt, of that I can be certain.|
|Verity||He is deft and charming, but I have the sense that he is just as smart as his brother. Perhaps with more of his mind devoted to talking than to smacking bones into place. Or, maybe he... wait, I have the beginnings of a bawdy joke here.|
|Zoey||He makes pleasant enough company, and a perfect secret keeper once he has enough drinks in him.|
