The Body


Height: 5'10"
Body Type: Slender
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Burnished gold

Appearance:
Skin a pale gold where his eyes are dark, Paris stands out against many other islanders. His is not the body of a raider. Lean, weak as a warrior, he was made to carry books. Callouses from quills rather than blades. Beneath his dark mop of hair, his gaze is gentle and his smile kind. Wariness at the corners of his eyes. A different sort of man among the wild, violent warriors of Paon.


The Mind


Craft Strengths: 12/15pts
Telekinetic Manipulation
Preservation Spells
Guidance Craft
Communing
Craft Weaknesses: Ceremony Craft. Shields.

Personality:
Paris has learned its best to keep your head down and eyes averted. To be deaf to the insults slung your way. Long years of practice have turned him indifferent to the mocking of others. Serene in the face of their scorn. Long years to make him comfortable in himself. Confident in an unassuming way that doesn't rouse tempers.

Perhaps it his priesthood that lends to his calm. Grounded by Mother Night so that his warlord temper is not roused in return. His protectiveness runs toward care rather than defense. Distraction rather than violence. Clever in his mild manners, using the easy way he is dismissed to listen to what he should not.

Open and friendly when he is not hiding behind walls of invisibility, Paris loves a good bout of gossip enjoyed over a meal paired with wine or tea, the steeping of which was taught to him by his father.


The Backstory



History:
A common enough story on Paon. A child born between slave and islander, but there was one subtle, yet striking difference. Paris' father was the slave. Captured in Dhemlan before the war on Witch and brought to the islands so that they could make use of his knowledge. He was skilled with a sword, and a quill.

Mind sharp, he made a good life for himself, despite his station. He wore his invisible shackles with confidence. Bonds could only hold you as tight as you allowed him. Decades after his original master had died, as the short live had a tendency to do, he found himself in the care of a rather cunning and beautiful woman.

With this woman, he made a son. Paris, for all his father's looks, was raised almost wholly as an island native. His mother was a priestess, and she took the devotion of her household very seriously. Her son would outlive, as his father would, but he could be her lasting legacy. His century long devotion to the Darkness a mark she could leave upon the world.

So his upbringing was rigorous. His place always one of a knife's edge. Was he citizen or slave? Claimed as his mother's son, but still, his father had never been made free by any owner or patron. Not even his mother. His father did not much outlive his mother, but Paris has. For decades he has worked quietly in Rosnay's temple. Just avoiding the cut of Eunuch-hood, by fervent refusal. That life was not for him, as much as he was often mistaken for one.

Jewels nothing to worry about one way or another. Dark enough to keep him free, light enough to make him below suspicion. He enjoys the roiling politics of the island. The strange, smiling way the people stab at each other. Enjoys too, walking outside the seclusion of the temple and tasting life outside its service.
