Description

A solid broad-shouldered frame has been weathered by age and circumstance. His countenance carries the wrinkles and stress of a life filled with dire and joyful moments. Handsome features are paired with a brown beard and mustache as well as a thinning hairline high upon his square brow. Crows feet have begun to gather in force around grey-blue eyes. There is a single jade green tiger stripe tattoo along his right jawbone just above the angle of his bone on his cheek. His thick dark beard covers it from casual view but up close the green can be seen behind the dark wiry hairs.

The simple cut of his clothes does not define their quality. The linen shirt beneath is a near white embroidered with red scrollwork at shoulder and arm. His trousers a thicker wool in drab brown have mended and carefully cared for. The simple steel of his armor has been rehammered a few times but seems of fine make.

Biography

sigil_house-hightower.png
Hightower Guard
"Red Cloak"

Mayriece was a Star in her time at the Whimsy Theater. The daughter of a very rich merchant she always lived in luxury. Until she met Frank. He would be in the back of the theater every night, listening to the plays that he could not afford to see. While she was getting air between scenes one night, they met and she spoke to him. At first, demanding what he was doing, but then she grew to realize he was a true fan and they spent the time talking about the current performance. May every night thereafter she would take some air and be thrilled to see him and talk with them about her first love, the dramatic arts. Years went on and she grew to realize that her first love was being replaced by the man she would talk to hours about it. Frank became her first love, above the Arts and that was something! Against the wishes of her troupe and family, she married Frank and she made his little ramshackle home on Ragpyker's Wynd as homey and to her style as she could.

They were quite shocked when their first son, Darron was born quite small, and then more contractions hit and then their son Arron was born, already broad-shouldered his delivery was hard on May but she pulled through. The twins were identical though Darron was always smaller. Darron also grew up to develop the same sort of care-free whimsical life his parents enjoyed, he always had an affinity for the water and would spend his time playing at the docks of the harbor. Arron never played much, he was always such a serious boy that had sights on the Red Cloaks since he could remember. May never became pregnant again, so their family remained small.

Darron became a cabin boy when he was nine. Arron stayed and helped his father around the farm until he was old enough to start training for the Hightower Guard.

Roleplaying Hooks & Quirks

  • Hightower Guard: Arron is a member of the Red Cloaks. He's been one since he came of age and is known among the guard to be one of the most disciplined and dedicated. With his Beefeater-like way of being able to stand vigil for 8 hours without flinching or breaks.
  • Stamina: As above, the man is known for his stamina, not just at the Hightower but at the Bawdy Bard and other such places around the city. The girls had to tag team at times when Arron would come calling before he married.
  • Wealth: If Arron was still a bachelor his wealth level would be considered Wealthy, but he takes care of a big family who all thankfully live below their means and are frugal folk.
  • Loyal:
  • Romantic: Under all that stoicism and the straight back quiet guy is the throbbing heart of a romantic. He was one of the first people to really be for the match of Ormund Hightower and Eiris (Flowers) Hunt. What they'd been through, the way he saw how they looked at each other, the things he heard them say while he was guarding them. Big softie and he'll do anything to protect their romance. This of course in the world as it is is not exactly a good thing and has already brought a world of troubles on his shoulders.
