    Richard Phythyon

    Character Name: Richard Phythyon
    Character Age: 28
    Gender: Male
    Birthday: March 11th
    Current Location: Deloria
    House: Phythyon
    Crest Appearance:



    House Description/History:

    A relatively young house, the Phythyons have been installed in Deloria for only fifty years, in the wake of the expulsion of the native tribes from the coast of Astoria. A compromise between Sandoval and Deveraux, Reginald Phythyon was considered an trustworthy vassal, one who was capable of holding the bridge and trustworthy enough to warrant such a reward and responsibility.

    Reginald had been a marshal in the Deveraux forces during the skirmishes with the tribes of the hills, and had performed nobly and valorously in his battles. He had earned the respect of his superiors and his opponents, and was often tasked with negotiating with the indigenous peoples when further difficulties arose.

    The house now works as a go between and buffer for the houses of Deveraux and Sandoval, who seem to be at increasing odds as of late, with Jayson Phythyon biding his time, looking for an opportunity to advance himself above both of his superior houses. Under the pretense of peace, the Dragons of Deloria secretly court the chaos that could lead to them rising from the ashes of a broken Esquibel.

    Played By/Face Claim: Alexander Skarsgård




    Appearance:

    Unlike his father, Richard is not ruled by a need to dress well, nor does he favor jewelry or exotic garments. A far more simple creature, the knight dresses practically, though he does prefer his clothing to fit well. Not big on ceremony, the man only dresses in armor when on patrol or in battle, eschewing the plate and chain whenever possible. He is fond of soft leather riding boots, simple collared shirts, and well worn breeches.

    With pale blue sunken eyes and sandy blond hair, Richard's lithe frame betrays his strength. He is graceful and swift, despite his height and is an accomplished dancer and musician. He prefers the rapier to the heavier broad or bastard swords. He is often seen riding along the river at night, and favors a dark blue cloak despite his family's colors being the red of Astoria.

    Personality:

    Kind and unassuming, Richard is very much naive to intrigue and scheming. He views most of his life in black and white, and harbors the belief that the lessons from fairy tails and nursery rhymes are easily applied to everyday adult life, if one makes an effort to live right. He is understanding, and knows that his father, while seemingly ruthless, does his best to administer the city as best he can, and realizes that balancing politics and economics takes a shrewder mind than his.

    Richard believes in charity and justice. He is slow to anger, and studies problems at great length before forming an opinion on them. The knight can be seen in the streets about Deloria, distributing bread and coin to the poor, despite the protests of his father Jayson.

    Personal History:

    The apple of Blanche Phythyon's eye, her firstborn child Richard was doted upon by his mother from a very early age. Consequently, his father had little time for the boy in childhood, seeing as the whelp could be of little use to him before he reached adolescence. Blanche took the boys instruction in the arts very seriously, schooling him in music, dance, and literature personally. While there were tutors on hand, they were merely there to reinforce his mother's lessons. He was not allowed to practice swordplay, or engage in other dangerous activities until her was twelve. This led to him being well behind other boys when he came of age, and is a contributing factor to his fighting style.

    When he finally sprouted into a young man, his martial instructors realized that Richard was quicker and more agile than the other boys, but was also a little weaker. They began to toughen and bulk him up, but found that it was impossible to drive the fancy footwork out of his drills. The castellan took to calling the young man a dragonfly, an obviously backhanded compliment, since his family totem was the green dragons of Deloria. The moniker never seemed to bother Richard much, and when he opted to study the rapier as opposed to the broad sword, he embraced the nickname, using it as motivation to push himself to be faster and even more fluid in his movements.

    Richard was fifteen when Blanche passed away. Complications from childbirth took both his mother and younger brother Glenn. This left him abroad as a squire while his younger sister Anna was forced to take on the role of matriarch. After a year of traveling with Jean-Luc Valliers, Richard set off to face the trials, eager to return home to his father and sister. He found the tasks to be simple, but he faced them humbly, and the Oracles were impressed with the young man.

    Once a knight in his own right, Richard rejoined the family in Deloria finding that things were markedly different from when he had left. The dancing, the music, they were all gone. Anna had done what she could to soften Jayson's hard line, but to little avail. There were politics at work between Sandoval and Deveraux that Richard didn't understand. But they were causing a great stress to be upon House Phythyon, and what it means for Richard is yet unclear.

    Such a nice guy! I kind of worry that Jayson is going to rip him apart in all of his niceness.

    Let's see how it goes!
