Lance, traveller, and Steed, his horse

Post  Berserker on Sat Jun 28, 2014 12:23 pm

LANCE

PERSONAL INFORMATION

Name/Alias: Lance
Age: 33
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Occupation: Vagabond
Origins: Tyrica
Height: 209 cm
Weight: 113 kg

APPEARANCE

Lance is heavily armoured; platemail and brigandine together form a very sturdy layer of armour. While his armour was once originally a dark red, sun and the toll of battle have left their traces, giving it a worn and faded appearance, much brighter than it originally was. Dirt and blood alike have collected on the armour, and as the armour is rarely cleaned in the first place, Lance looks more akin to well protected rabble rather than a travelling knight.
The same goes for his shield, which, despite originally displaying a detailed and beautiful pattern, is now covered with a blank, grey-ish cloth covering the entire shield face. This same cloth is also dirty and filthy. Only his sword somehow remains clean through battles, and not a drop of blood may be found on it scant few minutes after a fight. The sword itself looks mostly mundane, save for half the hilt being black, and a portion of the blade near the hilt having the same dark colour.

PERSONALITY AND HISTORY
Lance is both honourable and humble. He will stand against those defying his strict code of honour, but unlike many young knights, Lance does not believe in dying honourably. His life is too precious to him to let it be wasted to such things, and as such, his sense of honour includes fighting until his dying breath. He has low tolerance for the feeble and the frail.

It's not unusual for someone spending time with Lance to pick up on knightly and formal mannerisms, hinting that he was not always a vagabond. For instance, Lance tends to hold a fair bit of contempt for other vagabonds, especially those who commit petty thievery, and his ways of doing combat are too practiced and skilled to belong to a rogue. But similarly, he often seems too free-spirited to be committed to the ideals of knighthood, as well as knowing much more about the world than your average knight; for someone so fond of his sense of honour, he knows an awful lot about politics and underhanded tactics.

ARMS AND ARMOUR
Lance wears platemail and brigandine armour; these offer him great protection at a reasonable weight. If he fights from horseback, he will use a lance or battle axe in combination with his shield; on foot, he prefers his sword, again in combination with his shield. The shield itself is a massive kite shield, large enough to hide most smaller humans behind. The sword is a hand-and-half blade, likely made for smaller people than Tyricans. Lance thus wields it in combination with a shield.

MAGIC AFFINITY
Lance's time spent on the road has granted him a sixth sense allowing him to find his way through mazes and across long distances without getting lost.

TRAITS AND FLAWS
-Reckless
-Views his experiences as fact
-Large frame; often inconvenient outside of Tyrica
-Restless and impatient in some matters; won't "wait and see"

STEED

PERSONAL INFORMATION

Name/Alias: Steed
Age: 14
Gender: Male
Race: Horse (Tyrican warmblood)
Occupation: Mount
Origins: Tyrica
Height: 190 cm/19 hands
Weight: 900 kg

APPEARANCE
For a horse, Steed is large. For a warmblooded warhorse, Steed is very large and very strong. His hair is bay of colour, though his mane and tail are black. Much of him is covered by barding, however, and Steed has grown very used to the barding, in the same way as his master has grown used to his armour. Steed's barding, like Lance's armour, was once red, but dirt, sunlight and wear has made it almost grey. Scars are plentiful on the horse; some appear to have been healed magically, while others don't look as good and likely are a result of first-aid from Lance. Nonetheless, he looks strong and fit for battle.

PERSONALITY AND HISTORY
For as long as Steed can recall, Lance has been there in one way or another. While Lance has dragged Steed through a harder life than many horses need to deal with, Steed has been treated well as far as Lance has managed, and they both expect the other to stick with them until one of them dies. Steed himself is a strong and brave horse, familiar with the ways of combat, and also being very familiar with Lance's commands. He also seems more intelligent than your average horse; some swear they see mischief in Steed's eyes when Lance isn't looking.

Naturally, one can assume Steed has been through the same things as Lance. The horse seems perfectly fine with his nomadic life, however; with Lance looking after Steed and Steed looking after Lance, they would both have problems without each other. Of course, this means Steed knows much of Lance's past, but whatever happened back then, the stallion isn't telling.

ARMS AND ARMOUR
As earlier mentioned, Steed is usually armoured with barding. This is made out of several overlapping metal plates covering his neck, shoulders and hind quarters, as well as his shins. A plate covering his forehead is present too, but his sight is mostly unhindered. His hooves are shoed properly, adding a little pain to his kicks in combat, as well as preventing hoof infections.

MAGIC AFFINITY
Being a horse, Steed doesn't possess any magical ability anyone can notice.

TRAITS AND FLAWS
-Usually leans towards something when sleeping while standing up
-Large frame, large appetite: He tends to eat more than your average horse.
-Cunning, for a horse
