Lord Jace Redreef
I am a Redreef. We bleed, we fight, we win.
Description: Jace Redreef looks like a man who has spent a good amount of time outdoors. Tall, without an ounce of fat on him, he has the typical broad-shouldered frame of a man who has been athletic instead of indolent. His is a handsome face, with a mischievous cast to his bluish-gray eyes and plenty of laugh lines around his mouth and eyes. His black hair is long, curling against the collar of his coats and shirts, often falling over his eyes when he isn't paying attention.
Personality: The Redreef family have a reputation for being stubborn, fierce and hearty with saltwater for their blood. Jace is no different. Much like his cousin he is as quick to laughter as anger, blunt enough to be considered rude, and prone to disappear every so often to spend some time at sea. At the core of him is an unshakable honor. This is a man who will give his word and do absolutely everything he can to keep it. He pledged to help his cousin hold Redreef Shores, and not once has he diverted. Of course, when there are women and booze about, he might be distracted, but never diverted.
Background: What is honor?
Jace Redreef is the nephew and salt-son of Tiberius Redreef, yes *that* Uncle - the man who challenged Ember's right to rule. Tiberius made sure that Jace was educated on how to rule when he was young. He figured that his brother would not produce a son before his death, and he wanted to be prepared for such a time. One of Jace's teachers in his childhood was a retired Knight, who taught the boy a lot about honor and duty, which are both important things for a young man to know - especially if he were to rule a Barony one day.
Jace was there when Ember defeated his salt father's champion, and there are many things that he could have done. He could have been angry. He could have held resentment. Instead he went the honorable route. He accepted her right to rule. He threw himself into helping his cousin consolidate her rule. A few members of the family were wary of his involvement at first, but it was clear that he valued the people they were serving more than his own self interest.
Honor is doing what is right, even if you don't think it is what's best.
