World of Reos Characters
Skjold - skjǫldr
Valiant and brave with a desire for battle and glory, Skjold fought alongside his bonded companion Sverd for nearly thirty years of his life. The two grew up together and learned to move and fight in a way that was more an elaborate dance than battle, protecting their village and clan in the name of their clan leader. After losing his companion to betrayal, he picked up the title of mercenary and travels the continent helping those who need it - and can pay.
Cool and collected, Baltic tends to be the voice of reason when all other voices are drowned out. His age brings him experience and wisdom, and his tendancy to sit and observe has benefitted him many times. He is fiercly protective of his his companion Finneu, and if she is in danger he is not afraid to show his teeth.
Alexstraza - Alek -straw- zah
Alexstrasza at first glance appears to be a calm, and gentle soul. She speaks in such a manner that would suggest she's caring, gentle, soft spoken, and compassionate, definitely at least two things that are true. Upon closer inspection, or by putting her clan or friends in danger, it becomes quite clear she is the farthest thing from gentle and soft spoken. Her ferocity when protecting those she treasures, and her territory, is rarely matched. Those within her inner circle know her gentle nature and smooth tone are masks for the manipulative and highly intelligent intentions of her actions and words. Nothing goes on in her territory without her knowledge, and no one will bring harm to those in her charge.
Kalecgos [kahl - ek - gohs]
A travelling ambassador, Kalecgos smooth talks his way out of many difficult situations and encounters. Free-spirited and suave, he's known throughout many clans and human settlements as the speaker for the mountain clan he 'belongs' to.
With her wild and untamed spirit, Bonnie is incredibly adventurous and curious. Though her curiosity and drive often appears to others as forgetful and flighty. Known well for getting into trouble in often comical or unbelievable ways, she is quite frequently the damsel in distress that needs saving.
A mysterious and quite Vayron, Weave prefers solitude over travelling and living with others. Strong and independant, she faces trouble and danger head-on with little fear. While this may compromise the safety of those around her, she is more concerned with her own well-being and objectives than others.
Surprisingly shy and timid, Apotheosis prefers to let others fight for him, only stepping in when absolutely necessary. A skilled healer and medic, he's much more attuned to providing aid than participating in conflicts.
Serious and to the point, Grigori makes an excellent thief and a boring companion. He gets jokes, just doesn't enjoy them, and it feels like he's constantly judging you. He is, of course. His old age has brought him much wisom, but done nothing for his patience.
Nereid [nehr - eyed]
Having grown up among powerful and determined mages and sorcerers, Nereid all but breathes magic in her life now. Despite the witch-hunt in Thedale for magic users, Nereid practices often, hiding her true nature from those who would seek to hurt her.
Quiet and Somber, Dirge feels more at home among the dead than the living. She has a penchant for dark magic and it creates an aura about her that radiates melancholy. Her exceptional beauty tends to lure one's gaze, but her cold stare drives them away. There are few that are truly close to her, most preferring to stay away and simply admire from afar.
A calm Vayron who exudes an air of royalty about her, Eirini is soft spoken but firm in her decisions and choices throughout life. Elegance and beauty are never forgotten in everything that she does, and the oasis she calls home reflects that. Shy by no means, this Vayron is quick to confront those who would do her or her companion harm and protect those close to her.
Acheron [ack - er -on]
Acheron is a Vayron that will ferociously and vicously attack those who threaten her owl wellbeing and the wellbeing of her friends and companions. Unusually coated for the hot Thedale temperatures, Acheron's origins are unknown and she speaks little of her past. Those that do earn a few choice words are either a very close friend or an in danger enemy.
A relatively good-natured Vayron, when Suede speaks it's in a high clear voice that shows she means business. She takes her job as an escort very seriously, gathering information from all the towns and keeping running updated of what's going on in her head so as to keep her clients out of danger. Along with her companion, she spends most of her time travelling from one settlement to another, trading a rather nomadic lifestyle for the freedom of the open road.
A gentle giant, this Vayron prefers plush grass and foliage beneath her feet, and loves to sunbathe in the dappled rays of light that cut through the thick canopy of trees. Her voice is low and warm, and she loves to sing to herself in her wanderings. But she is reclusive, and often difficult to spot in the forest while she rests.
