The Body


Height: 5'10, 6'4
Body Type: Rugged
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Brown

Appearance:
Hair and eyes nearly the same color, one shading just closer to black than the other, Bannick's gaze is quiet and steady, iris' like the dark, murky places in the forest. Shadowed pools, or rich soil. Built for hunting, not sleek like the forest cat, but solid, like a wall. Or a tree. Or a wall of trees. Simple clothing. Sturdy and easily replaced.

Antlers that thicken rather that spread or grow tall. Narrow points near the base, and wide, webbed prongs toward the peak. And there, at the gum line, falsely filling his bottom lip, are the marks of his caste. Both Prince and Warlord. Not fangs, but tusks. Just long enough to slip over his upper teeth, and thick enough to make him pout.


The Mind


Craft Strengths: 15/15pts
Tracking Spells
Communing
Telekinetic Manipulation
Craft Weaknesses: Pyschic Masking & Wounding

Personality:
Soft spoken Bannick, with the laugh lines around his eyes. He smiles often, and laughs just as much, a deep, rumble of happiness. But none of it masks what he is. Share eyed and keener of temper, he a protector and hunter first. The queen's weapon.

Honest Bannick, he only lies to the hornless. No cervini would question him, lest they wish to question his queen. His word law to any but her, and only she can gainsay him. Territorial, he is a collector. Of things. Places. People. Dear friends. Close family. Women, like daggers to his heart.

He looks to the world with eagerness instead of fear. His faith absolute. He has learned to ground himself in nature when his queen is too far to hold his leash. He walks silently through the wood because he breathes it. Soul mingling with leaf and branch. Darkness just there, to hold his hand and guide his spear.


The Backstory


Family:
    expansive

History:
His cradle was made of vines, deep in the darkest woods. Raised to live as one with everything around him. Lowly earth worm, glorious hawk. A clever eyed boy who pulled snakes from their holes and whistled rabbits from their burrows. And shepherded anyone who would allow him.

Suspicions about his caste drawing a council of elders on the eve before his birthright. A Sapphire found in the hollow of a tree. Left to crawl through the long dark tunnel alone. The budding prongs of his antlers scraping bark down into his eyes until he was blinded by it. Groping as the wood grew warm beneath his hands and began to pulse, echoing his heart beat, or anothers, back at him.

He found the Jewel like ice beneath his hand. Harder and colder than any empty tree. But he could not go back, only forward, and the tree narrowed as it reached the top. Antlers catching, knuckles bloody as he used them instead of his open hand to claw his way forward until he was wedged inside the tree with no hope of escaping. Except for the Jewel in his hand. So cold it burned. Turning warm wood cool and then brittle.

He grew quickly after that. Bones aching with it. He slept poorly and snarled often. Grew dangerous and prone to biting when anyone came too close to what was his. Or who he thought were his. His were no blunt toothed savaging either. A warlord princes mark giving weight to his snapping, leaving wounds.

His training was altered. Moving from the deep woods to those more populated places where the hornless were known to walk. But there was a queen there, the faint nubs at her temples, and the width of her nose marking her as cervini. And with her came a craft to keep him calm, and a hand to keep him focused. He learned. Quickly because no male has time to linger over childhood. Quickly because his Sapphire cut through swathes of forest when he was not careful.

And then they drowned him. Hands and ankles bound together, bowing his spine, digging his antlers into the ground as they tied, too, stones to his bonds. He was thrown then into the lake. To die, or return a man. How deep would he sink? All the way to the bottom. This time it was heat that greeted him. Boiling the water until he stood in mud. Ropes and stones blackened.

The Grey. His queen pleased. Now he could be set on the world with purpose. And there was whispering from the hornless that the world was about to grow beyond the shields even the cervini could not pass. Bannick could be turned to real purpose, ranged farther than any other. It was expected of him. To find them meat and homes. New hunting grounds or safe passage to old. To train their warriors in a fierceness they would not otherwise know.
