Description: Standing taller than six and a half feet, this man is as thin as the proverbial rake. The sharp angles of his pale-skinned face accentuate large eyes of cold, pale blue, and high cheekbones and hollow cheeks lend him a brooding air. His hair is jet black with receding temples and streaks of silver, kept long enough to touch his shoulderblades and often tied at the back of his neck with a thong. The rest of his body follows the elongated, slender and angular rule; his limbs are long, his fingers are dextrous, and there's little spare fat on him.

Personality: There's something just a little off about Raymesin, even for a Lower Boroughs man. His gaze is just a little too intense and his smile rarely reaches his eyes, leaving the impression of a man wearing a mask of flesh over his real face. A survivor, he adapts to suit the situation; his rage is quick to stir, but there's always loyalty at the core of him.

Background: The illegitimate son of a nobleman and a serving girl who was released from service when she became pregnant - at least, if you believe a word of anything he says - Raymesin's mother died when he was just a few years old, abandoning him to a life in the Lower Boroughs. At first he just about survived, but over time he started to thrive, taking to his new life as though he'd been born to it. Before he reached his teens he was recruited by the Ulbran family to serve as a lookout and thief; by the time he turned eighteen he'd learned how to use a knife, and how to kill. Since then he's been working as an enforcer for the family, doing the things that need to be done, and he's recently returned from a job that took him elsewhere for a little while.

Relationship Summary

  • Orathy - It's always nice to meet an old acquaintance again, a familiar face. His beard has gone to salt and pepper, but that just means he's seasoned.
  • Acacia - Intelligent, cunning and canny. Definitely worth knowing.
  • Evaristo - A very big mouth, but useful despite that.

  • Friend:
  • Tanith - It took us both a long time to realise how good we are together.
  • Austen - I don't know why or how he's become a paramour, but he has.
  • Name Summary
    Adora Ulbran. Too tall. Not so bad, but I don't like him.
    Alexio A kind heart, with a soft spot for his loved ones, hides beneath the daunting appearance of this tall and clearly hardworking man. I suspect he'd be good to know.
    Alrec Never thought I see the death priest enforcer himself but here we are with an opportunity to work together. Always a pleasure when I get to work with the Ulbran family.
    Alrigo He's a big lad, huge even. I'd not want to turn the wrong alley and find that one at the other end of it. People like that are useful though. When you need them.
    Amund Big and pretty damn menacing. Definitely someone with potential as a soldier if he so chooses.
    Apollo I can't argue with his taste in hats. Quite an accent! Friendly.
    Arcadia Not lowers scum from what I see.
    Ashur This man seems like a rough sort. It's not bad to know the rough sort, wherever one might travel. And he sounds quite knowledgeable as well on matters of the Queen of Endings.
    Aslaug When one meets one of the large cats, it is easy to get caught up in its beauty and strength. The leanness of form and grace of movement. One can almost forget that it is a predator. One may also forget that it can hide in shadows, wait for its prey to be near, and then pounce. Sometimes, the threat is all that is needed for the prey to flee for its life. So it is with this Ulbran. Do not forget that he can kill. It oozes off him if you care to notice.
    Astrid I've known him most of my life. Never seen him the leat bit scared.
    Aswin A cousin of the Ulbran line. He is a good sort. Thoughtful. Doesn't seem inclined to rush into anything half assed. Should keep him alive.
    Auda Super tall. Taller even than the tall tales made him out to be.
    Austen Tall and mysterious. He's also very pointy, I get the feeling that I would not want to get on the wrong side of him. Still, he is a Harlequin, and I trust that the Gods have seen fit for him to be such. Still, will keep an eye on him, just in case.
    Bethany Well mannered and wise, seems to have the right idea of good contacts.
    Calypso Hope next time he's thinking about pulling a knife on a duchess in a room filled with her family he'll remember what I said to him. Being hotheaded shouldn't be a death sentence.
    Cambria A chance encounter. He might just prove to be a diamond in the rough, if I have anything to do with it.
    Caspian The guardian of Jayus' left nostril. Or was it his armpit? I don't remember. He's pretty funny though.
    Catalana The man has much more control than I expected. Quiet though. Bet he'd be a great sailor.
    Corrigan Yet another gravelly longshanks who leaps menacingly to the defense of a maiden's virtue. Ten a penny in Arx, each more nauseating than the last.
    Cullen I generally get along well with people from the Lowers, and count a number among my friends, but this fellow seems to think that all problems that have befallen him and his neighbors down below - literally all problems - are the fault of the nobility.
    Darren An interesting man. Seems to keep himself to himself, and has a *lot* of knives. I suspect he knows a lot more than he lets on.
    Dianna It is good to find people willing to go into dark places with good intents. I shall welcome him again.
    Domonico A tall dangerous man. Long reach. Very skilled with a short blade. Not one to encounter in a dark alley.
    Dycard 'Third Lowers scum from the left,' apparently. A man who wants to be a closed book, from the sounds of it - or at least a closed book to me. ..That, or simple deadpan humour. I'm likely overthinking this.
    Evaristo A familiar face, one I'd rather not get on the bad side. How odd we meet at a shrine because of an interest in the Queen of Endings, suddenly. Interesting man!
    Evelynn A mysterious man I met in the Lower Boroughs. He doesn't seem to share information about himself too easily although he was more polite than someone would expect.
    Fairen A man of action from the Lowers if I got his accent right. Definitely was handy to have around, especially since - well, we won't talk about what I did during that whole incident.
    Faruq Needs to stop complaining about his life and do something to change it if that is his wish.
    Faye Rude? Paranoid? Nosy? Unhelpful? He didn't even give his name, but I'll likely remember him all the same. Odd, I usually find Harlequins to be easier to talk to.
    Gaston A man that stands taller than me, a definite rarity. He moves even faster with blades with his hands, much to my surprise. A formidable opponent that I hope not to face against in the future but fight alongside with if I had to choose.
    Giada Decent guy, seems like. Knows what's important.
    Gilroy Tough guy. Always handy. Doesn't want to do crimes with me. Must hate money!
    Hamish Rough around the edges, but devoted nonetheless.
    Harlex Steady. Honest. Unblinded by the gregarious elite. Good man.
    Harper Man was he easy to piss off! But after we came to terms, he seemed alright. Just gotta remember to make sure he knows when I'm joking or not!
    Holt A little tense at first, but friendly enough. Seems like there's a lot more to him than meets the eye.
    Icelyn He shared few words when we met at the ceremony. But we certainly share a wish to observe without being observed.
    Ida Raymesin Ulbran is an imposing figure, without doubt. Tall, dark, and dangerous from first appearances at the least. Looks, as they say, can sometimes be deceiving. This isn't the case necessarily with Raymesin, but his close friendship with my brother gave us an easy common-ground from which to have a real conversation. A man of admirable convictions, his passions to duty and to the Lowers marks him as a fine person in my book, and like kin.
    Ilira Cutting eyes, quiet smile, serene in brutality--this is one I'd like at my side, not my back.
    Jacali Come into my shop'n threaten me like a bloody Grayhope. He'll learn in time just how filthy my bite may be, he will. The asp's but a whip of a thing, it is, but it don't make it timid, nor is it gentle. We'll see how close he gets his boot to my mouth in the time to come, ey?
    Jeffeth Not very friendly. A little taller than me which doesn't happen often. I thought we could be tall friends, but he's an Ulbran. And. Well. You know. I don't remember seeing him on the streets of the Lowers when I was a boy, or maybe I did and he just grew so tall I don't recognize him. Either way, he fell in with the Ulbrans and that's generally a Bad Choice.
    Jennyva I met him in the Shrine of the Queen and it seems like we may be starting a journey together towards the service of the Queen! How exciting!
    Katarzyna He has a way with spiders and knows how to deftly remove them from pant legs. I appreciate his assistance and hope to visit the Shrine again some day, only next time I will be much more careful where I choose to sit.
    Kenna There's just something about people that prickly that makes me want to touch them. You'd think I'd learn after bleeding enough.
    Korka An Ulbran harlequin that's friends with a Grayhope. A man of few words and interesting scars.
    Lys As quiet and taciturn as they come, but I have a feeling he's an unmoveable object underneath all that silence. As steady as a tree.
    Mabelle A strong, seriously tall man. I owe him my life. Or at least cake.
    Magpie Magpie thought he was all bullshit and bitterness at first, but once they got to talking a bit more the Ulbran seemed solid enough for future correspondence. Always good to know who's who around the Lowers.
    Martino He is SO useful! Has a bit of everything to keep us all safe when we went on an adventure and, for that, I am thankful. Good man!
    Marzio There's something about the man that seems familiar, but I can't quite place my finger on it... In any case, he seems to be a good sort. One I could maybe understand with a bit more time. Hopefully on good terms.
    Miranda He's a trooper! Takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin', just like me! Under better circumstances, he might be fun to fight alongside. Good to know he can handle himself!
    Monique Lowers as Lowers gets. He's got the sharp knife-edge of danger about him that I shouldn't like. But I do.
    Narcissa Savior and herder of spiders, protector of webs up most high.
    Nico He seems like a grizzled man, but with warmth to him. I only spoke with him briefly before the area became crowded with other individuals, but I wouldn't mind his company another day.
    Nina I don't think he's much for speeches, but it was great to meet him at his wedding as he was quite cheerful! He and Tanith seem to make such a lovely couple!
    Nottie Long time friend. Seems pretty grumpy. He's family too.
    Orathy Reckon as similar we are, we ain't.
    Oriana I *swear* I've seen his face before. SWEAR IT. Hmmh. I'll keep an eye out. For eyes out.
    Petal He seems okay. Seems to be a sellsword who might like to find another trade. Crafting is where it is at, so I hope that goes well for him. Seems like a man of the lower boroughs. Is probably a survivor.
    Piccola A swift-and-steady soldier, based on what I've seen. Also, someone who has little faith in the wisdom of nobility, which is both reasonable and prudent.
    Qadira Suddenly, I find myself surrounded by men such as these. Weighed, purposeful, and not hiding their nature behind lies. I appreciate such men.
    Quintin A fellow Harlequin. Excellent taste in hats.
    Raja He is an Ulbran enforcer. It's good to have the enforcers, but if he thinks I am scared of him, he has something to learn.
    Ras A cold guy, but he ain't mean. Got Lowers wisdom. Serves Death... in a lot of ways.
    Reese He seems to have had a hard a life, its a vibe I get from him.
    Revell Dunno what to think of him. Lowers type, obviously, but gets as easily offended as a silk. Maybe it's the new fancy cloak of his?
    Rinel A man who is familiar with violence, and perhaps even likes it. But I think, at his core, he is a good man.
    River Well, I mean at least he can have a conversation and ignore absolutely everything around it, including social blunders? That or he really just doesn't care. let's hope it's the seconD? I don't know He's good folk though, I think.
    Rowenova I like the way this guy thinks. We empathized through thoughts of violence! Or at least I think so.
    Roxana There is something strikingly familiar and entirely foreign about Raymesin of No House (that's what he said!) I wonder if there's a story someone hasn't told me? But I am so good at keeping secrets!
    Rukhnis A hard man, perhaps, but not so hard that he can look upon true evil without hatred clear in his eyes. For this if nothing else, he has my respect.
    Sanya He seems polite, respectful. I appreciate his willingness to admit error and move forward amicably.
    Sirius A man whose silhouette gleams like light reflects on a knife's edge in the dark, betiding danger. Perhaps he's just protective of those close to him, how can I know?
    Starling Sir Brooder, a very good lookout and quite adept and skulking and looking dangerous. A bit standoffish, for good reasons, I think, but I rather find him amusing.
    Sunaia Protector of Spiders; Harlequin. I'm sure the Queen of Endings blesses him for his hard work. I'm sure I appreciate him - and his ability to sweep better than we do.
    Svana He's tall, and he's Tanith's husband. He's nice for such an intimidating figure. I get the feeling that others might not see it the same.
    Sydney Isn't often I meet someone more'n a few inches taller than me, so when someone stands half a fucking head or more above me, I take notice. Or at least, I take notice the second time around. He's Lowers material, which means I respect him immediately, but trust him no further than I can throw him. Yet.
    Talia An intimidating, reserved man that nevertheless seems very happy with his bride, which I am glad for.
    Tanith Knows better than most not to piss off the bartender.
    Thea There is something there. Familiar maybe? I can't place it. Something tells me though I could call upon him in a bind.
    Theodoric A trusted man of action, ready with a sharp blade and sharper observations.
    Tynan I always appreciate the bruisers of the Lowers that has some common sense to them. The ones that can put together more than two words and a grunt in succession. They're valuable assets, and good to know at times.
    Valarian A real bruiser I remember from the days I was more active with the Ulbrans. Worked under him a few times. Pretty sure I threw a couple people in the Pit afterwards. Intimidating and just the sort of person you want in that role.
    Valenzo A grim, competent killer...who helps his friends when they're in need! Bosom buddies forever!!
    Vayne Courageous. I was pleased to see him lead the way into the defense of others.
    Verity Don't let the tough act fool you: he's much friendlier than he seems! But just to be clear he will also stab you if need be.
    Zoey Wisdom can come from anywhere, as long as we are willing to listen.
