Xander Shale: The Blind Swordsman

Post  KraftyKlutz on Sun Feb 19, 2012 5:41 am

Alexander "Xander" Shale was born in the capitol city Artel, of the Artelian empire. He was raised an only child by his parents. His dad is a captain in the Emperor's Personal Guard, and his mother is a Biologist at the city's University. Xander studied economics and history at the University until he was 108. After his education, he began training with the Emperor's Private Army, where he quickly became their best swordsman. At 140, Xander was overwhelmed by the urge to see the world, and so he transferred to the Navy, visiting countries and lands far beyond his wildest dreams. In his service in the Artelian Navy, the ship Xander was serving on ran into a vast fog where they were ambushed by a pirate vessel. The battle was brief and vicious, and during the confusion, a shard of wood skewered Xander's left knee, crippling him. After this incident, he gave up his time as a sailor and became an officer, quickly becoming the captain of his own vessel. His knee still hinders him to this day. During his travels, several hundred years into his service, at the age of 539, Xander discovered the continent of Betelgeuse, and he made the decision to leave Artel and take up residence in the new land.

Xander is 6’9 with a slender build. He has light blonde hair and violet eyes. He wears a blue and black cape signifying his role as an officer in the Artelian Navy that conceals most of his body. Underneath he wears a plain red shirt, black pants, and a longsword on his hip.

Opinion on the war:
Xander has fought in many, many wars. He’s seen what it can do to people. He doesn’t approve of the war between Legaria and Miendienl. He tries to remain neutral, but because of his ties to Luna, he’s more inclined towards supporting Legaria, especially after learning of what Miendienl did to them. He does his best to try and prevent and end the conflicts between the two people, but if forced to take up arms, Xander will do so only in defense of Luna.

Opinion of the other races:

Elves: The Artelian species is directly descended from Elven kind, and so Xander feels some amount of kinship towards them.

Humans: Xander hasn’t much of an opinion about Humans. He neither likes nor dislikes them. He has encountered them on many occasions during his travels, but hasn’t spent incredibly large amounts of time with them.

Lizardkin: Xander spent a small amount of time with these lizard people during the first few years of his time in the navy. Xander is particularly fond of their culture, and was pleased to find Z’greel when he arrived in Legaria.

Orcs: Xander fought in the Plarnick Wars against the orcs when he was a soldier, before his time as a sailor. Xander holds great respect for Orcish kind because of their great strength and ferocity on the battlefield.


(I'll add some more information about Artel later on)

He hasn't got as much giants blood as Ridgire did.
He's from a far earlier period than Ridgire, and the giants blood wasn't as potent in the Artelian species

Xander has taken up residence in Legaria, and is developing a keen romantic interest in the local healer, Luna. Xander wishes to play a more important role in the Legarian society. He's yet to decide on how

Xander feels at home in Legaria. He has a life there.
He has friends. He has a job. And he's in love with Luna. Deeply.
Life is good.

I'm getting tired of seeing Oak in Legaria so often.
I think it's about time he was taken care of..

Oak came by. I had become so fed up with him that it came down to a fight..
It's a shame, really, that he tried to take on an expert swordsman. I'm sure he'll die.

Xander has been acting very strangely lately.
Like ghosts from his past have come back to haunt him.
Is Xander hiding secrets from his past that even he wanted forgotten?

Xander was blinded in a fight with Werewolf Jasmyn
How will this effect the master swordsman?

I had reason to believe Skjoldr was a traitor.
He proved I was right, too.
He attacked me in my own home.
I thought he was a friend, but I guess I was wrong.
He attacked me in my home. He underestimated me.
I may not be able to see, but I'm not entirely blind.
I killed him.
I hope that proves I'm not to be underestimated. Even for a blind man.
