: Radia Stelan EvanresAge:
Apathetic Neutral Profession/Role:
Radia currently makes his living as a street performer, or at least he plans to once he gets situated in a new town.Appearance:
Radia Stelan Evanres stands at a height of just over six feet and is of average weight for his size. His body is both skinny and toned, and his skin color is akin to that of someone who spent many a year at the mercy of the brutal desert sun. Radia’s eye color matches in hue with his short, lightly tousled (yet still stylish) jet black hair and he is said to have quite the charming smile. He has no scars or markings to speak of.
As far as clothing is concerned, Radia chooses to downplay his Sophyian heritage (Well, his *rich* Sophyian heritage, anyway. This is something he learned to do early on, for his own safety.) and often leans towards donning simpler clothing, clothing much like that of which would be worn by those who used to serve him. Commoner wear, so to speak. His chest wear consists of a simple form-hugging navy blue shirt with sleeves torn to a point where said shirt would be classified as ‘sleeveless’. As far as Radia’s legs are concerned, they are covered by a pair of long pants made of a light, breezy material in a subtle sandy color, hemmed closely at the ankle. The gap between the bottom of the shirt and the top of the pants is covered by a sash that Radia ties around his waist, knot on the right side. This sash is made of the same material as his pants, while its color matches his shirt’s. His shoes are simple and durable, made of a comfortable, yet rugged material, and tinted a light brown.
Radia wears a good amount of jewelry, and is never found without earrings and bracelets on both wrists. His earrings are small, simple loops made of a golden metal, and his bracelets were built to match. He has one earring in each ear, and two bracelets on each wrist.
As a final note, Radia is regarded as being very
Radia prefers to travel light, and only two items on his person can be considered actual ‘equipment’. One is his coin ‘sack’ (as he so lovingly refers to it), which is just to hold his potential change he would obtain during a performance or two, and a grappling hook/hookshot. Used mostly to get around crowds and congestion, this item allows Radia to scale buildings and follow his intended route using available rooftops. It is powered by hot vapor, the blast of steam that the launching mechanism lets out can easily shoot the hook (and sturdy rope) to heights above 65 feet. The launcher looks much like a simple, yet sturdy silvery metal pistol, and it has a automatic retract system that kicks in a moment or two after the hook impacts a target. The hook itself is a combination between the business end of a grapple and a hookshot, made of the same metal as its ‘pistol‘. The ‘pistol’ can fold in half, handle to muzzle, in case a compact form is necessary.Personality:
Raised in high society for a large majority of his life, Radia comes off as a spoiled rich boy. He is shallow, tends to complain at any sign of discomfort (though not always aloud), and is uncomfortable around those that would be considered 'less fortunate’ like the poor/homeless. He shares this same discomfort with Orr-kin and Gypsies as well, though his issue with the three above mentioned categories is more so due to the beliefs of those who raised and taught him, rather than his own.
Underneath his opulent mask, however, Radia is intelligent, charming and willing to help those in need. He can be described as an almostperfect gentleman from those who have witnessed this side of him.
As a side note, he *hates* being called ‘Rad’.Magick:
Radia has no magick to speak of, instead relying on hand-to-hand combat to defend himself. Hand-to-hand combat that seems to be a combination of some sort of martial art and dancing, though his offensive ability tends to be rather lackluster (due to his inexperience in battle). Radia’s defense, on the other hand, could be described as near-impenetrable. He is also rather quick.Hobbies
: Radia's main hobby is dancing; he will dance anywhere at any given time. The intensity of Radia's dancing will change dependent upon the current situation, and he does not perform the same dance all the time. He knows a variety of dances and tends to perform them in a random order. His lesser hobbies include swimming (usually shirtless), flirting with girls, and parkour/freerunning. History:
His parents dying when he was just a baby, Radia was taken in and raised by his father’s brother, a high-ranking Sophyian noble. He was then raised in opulence for around twenty years, partaking in the best of all available categories, such as attending the best of schools, eating the best of foods, having tailor-made clothing, having a servant for any whim, etc. Such privileges were not meant to last, however, and before long the crumbling state of Sophya’s economy began to affect the rich and powerful.
One of the earliest affected parties was Radia’s uncle, and he soon knew that he would not have enough money to keep this nephew around for much longer. On the eve of Radia’s 20th birthday the situation was laid out before the boy and he was promptly sent out by his uncle to make his own living immediately after the explanation, whether Radia liked it or not. It was a hard pill to swallow, having the world he knew stripped away from him so quickly, but the now homeless Radia gritted his teeth and went on his way with only his wits and a few coins to accompany him. That, and a certain grappling hook that he picked up from a traveling merchant.Theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvykpPi5BD0
