Default Jager Brabant

JAGER BRABANT





-------------------------------

[OOC Information]

Your Name: Adamsama
RP Experience: Since 1999, but really totes like 3 years on and off.
Your Character's Player Base: Adam Gregory

-------------------------------

[Basic Information]

Character Name: Jager Brabant
Character Age: 24
Gender: Male
Birthday: March 31st, 217 AF
Home Castle/City: Born Roseherst; Ruler of Ernsaw
House: Brabant

-------------------------------

[House Information]



House Words: “Survive and Strive”
Castle Name: The North Gate
Original Castle Name: Rochester Castle

House Description:
House Brabant is the house that had modest beginnings and grew into a vassal house. Starting as a brave warrior surviving underneath a Blanchard King, the House Brabant began as more of an order of unlanded knights, each member trained magnificently in arms and combat. After decades of service, the Brabants were raised to the status of vassal house and were given lands in return for their remarkable service to the Blanchard King. There are conflicting tales of the Brabants in battle. There are stories of the great honor and respect shown in the course of combat by the Brabants. There are also tales of ruthless tactics and gruesome slaughters headed by Brabants. They will do anything to survive. In the ashes of war, they seem able to strive to greater heights. When Heldenbrecht was destroyed, the surviving Brabants knew they had to surrender to the Fitzwulf to continue to exist. In return, the Fitzwulfs allowed the Brabants to maintain their lands in the shadows of the ruins of Heldenbrecht.

Overall, they are a martial group, all trained in the art of war. Some prefer to fight dirty, others to fight chivalrous, but as long as they survive the fight, that is what they deemed to be important. They are known for the loyalty to their sworn lords, but they are an ambitious group. Seeing how their Blanchard lords have been dismantled and destroyed, they yearn for the day they can avenge the destruction of Heldenbrecht. The opportunity has arisen to do so, so the Brabants rose in the name of Corbin Blanchard. In political maneuvers prior to this declaration, the Brabants found themselves the defacto rulers of Ernsaw.


-------------------------------

[Appearance]

The gods had blessed Jager with handsome features. His most prominent of which, his smile, charmed many women in his time. His light blue eyes and generally attractive face kept the ladies' focus in. As he grew older, he oftentimes added the rugged edge of some facial hair. His mother used say she dreaded unleashing his face onto the world for fear of ill intentions he might hold to use against women.

His defined build, while not overly bulky, emerged from the martial training he received for most his life. There are a number of faded scars throughout his body, trophies won during his boyhood and the few battles he had fought. However, one scar upon his body stood out. Along his side, a bright red scar remained from the near fatal wound he suffered during the War of Heldenbrecht.

-------------------------------

[Personality]

Don’t be fooled by his playful nickname, 'The Cub'. The reason for his nickname arrived that he’s much shorter than the typical Brabant, though he's still of average height compared to the average man. His younger brothers, Dirk and Ryker both are much larger than him in height and bulk. However, they both believe that Jager is a much more dangerous person than anyone they have ever met. There are two sides of Jager. The first is the warm friendly side that he shares passionately with his family and friends. The second is the ruthless merciless side that he shows in combat. He isn’t one to likely give quarter to the enemy. Jager expects utter obedience from his family though, even if he is really to give them his heart, he expects them to follow his guidance in all affairs. In that, sometimes he can be a little strict and harsh, but never in a malicious fashion.

While Jager’s not completely a fool in the politics side of governing, much of his consul comes from his uncle, Rikhart. With Jager’s guidance, Jager gained confidence in ruling his lands. Jager isn’t a man easily to forgive though, still harbors a large amount of resentment towards the Fitzwulfs. One of his glorious dreams is to see the fall of his enemies, and cast off the shackles. Not only does he blame them for ths death of his best friend, but also for the deaths of his father and uncles. As a result, Jager would strike and destroy them all if he only had the power to do so. However, knowing he’s entrusted with the safety of his family, he has reluctantly served the Fitzwulfs. The responsibility of being the head of his house is always on his conscience.

-------------------------------

[History]

The early years of Jager’s life can be remembered fondly by Jager. Even though his mother passed away at a young age, Jager is quick to accept his father’s second wife as a mother figure. Much of this time was spent being prepared to be a warrior in the name of the Blanchard King, as one of his knights. However, his much pleasant memories were always of the spent, adventuring with Corbin Blanchard. As they grew closer to adulthood, Corbin and Jager were known as hell raisers within Heldenbrecht. To the ire of his own father and uncles, Jager had a reckless sense of fun. Before the War of Heldenbrecht started, Jager felt Corbin was his brother by blood, not simply a friend.*

While much of the plague victims within the family were mourned for by the rest of his family, Jager didn’t shed a tear, already knowing the high price of illness with his mother several years prior. Jager instead distracted himself with his studies, while he always cherished the memories of his grandfather, time was wasted in such sentimental affairs. The only change that displeased Jager was the fact his father stepped away from direct influence on his upbringing in order to manage the affairs of the House while his Uncle Rikhart was put in charge of Jager’s development. Rikhart was stern but compassionate, expecting much out of Jager, he also showed Jager a lot of love. Much of the lessons Jager had taken to heart came from the days spent with Rikhart.

When the war between the forces of the Fitzwulfs and the Blanchards started, Jager came to age during the course of the conflict. Jager participated in some of the battles underneath the watchful eye of his uncle Rikhart. Throughout the war, when the Fitzwulf used plague corpses, Jager’s uncle, Ser Falco, quickly grew ill and died from the disease. When Elrik Kingbreaker captured the Blanchards, Jager’s father, Bartholmeus and Hubrecht was slain in the attempt, trying to defend the royal family. When news broke of this tragedy, Jager’s assumption as lord of the Brabants was ever so bitter. Enraged by the deaths of family members in the conflict, Jager personally lead a charge. Blinded by fury, the reckless move left Jager injured for the remainder of the war. When the war was winding down to a conclusion, Rikhart, through much effort, convinced Jager to surrender to the Fitzwulfs. In return for their compliance and further support, the Fitzwulfs allowed the Brabants to keep their lands.

In since time, Jager recovered from his wound inflicted in battle. His brothers had grown right up in age with him, and now tower above him. Jager is the smallest adult male in his family, and such an appearance has earned him the nickname 'The Cub'. Underneath the further guidance of his Uncle Rikhart and his Step-Mother, Jager had begun to develop the proper mindset of a governing lord and that patience needed to further grow his House’s influence. Even at age 24, Jager invests a large amount of time in studying and preparing himself. Deep down in his heart, Jager hoped that he would see the day he can finally avenge the fallen Blanchards.*

In the Summer of 241, Jager started to engage in political maneuvers, concealing his plans to deflect to Blanchard's forces. As a result, he deceived his overlords and their allies by answering the call by the Storms to remove Ernsaw as a possible threat. In this process, Brabants were handed the city by the Storms. Shortly after the armies of Storms and Brabants split, Jager set out and joined the armies under the control of Corbin Blanchard. In the battle of Mier, he aided Corbin in a rescue attempt that saved the lives of some of the younger Vulferams.

-------------------------------

[Writing Sample]

[Jager sat within the chair of his chambers of Roseherst, and stared out the windows. The fire roared behind him, bringing warmth and comfort to the room. Jager typically tenaciously attacked his workload to free up time to spar or study. However, today was one of those days lost to the memories of the past. Jager recollecting the battle in which he suffered a serious wound, all because he lost his cool due to the untimely deaths of his father and uncle in defense of the Blanchards. Men were lost because of his foolish desire for revenge. Jager felt utter embarrassment from such a decision, but no one ever scolded. Jager wasn’t a boy anymore. Jager was the Lord of Roseherst, and had those matters to attend. Jager would had continued in preparation to become Corbin’s right hand man militarily, but the Blanchards were lost. For that Jager couldn’t help but think if he had been a little bit older, he would have been able to change the course of such a tragic fate.*

Jager stood from the documents that rested before him, and turned. Rikhart stood in the frame. Right Jager sensed Rikhart sensed the frustration in his nephews’ soul. Jager turned, approaching the window. Jager waited for his uncle to part with his wisdom.

“Sometimes it’s well to reflect on the days of the past. Work will always be present, but the opportunity to learn from the past is one that should not be missed,” Rikhart stated with a soft tongue before claiming Jager’s chair. Rikhart moved it closer to the flame, and had a smile on his face.

“Yet sometimes I feel like I could have done better,” Jager commented.

“We all could have done better. Next time, we just must do better. That’s all we can do,” Rikhart replied instantly, before kicking his boots up onto the desk. Jager turned to see how his uncle got comfortable and could not help but garner a slight smile. Rikhart went on to suggest, “Some of the young lads are in the courtyard, practicing, perhaps you should join them. Next time you wouldn’t be injured.”

“I’ll teach a thing or two to your pupils, uncle. But if they cry because I gave them wounds, that will be on your conscience,” Jager replied.

“Oh, they need to know who the master of the manor is. Go ahead and make them cry,” Rikhart stated before extending his arms out closer to the flames. Rikhart added, “I’m going to warm up by your fire for a bit. The cold is just killing my knuckles.”*

So I'm guessing "survival" is the key theme here, eh? LOL I've been requested to review by Jenn, so after reading through it I look forward to seeing these guys in the Arbrecht War.

Don't forget to send your secrets to Jenn and Friday. APPROVED once that is completed.
