In-Depth Relationships

The Beloved

Delilah Ashenfell: "May you live to be one hundred, you lovable old wench!"
Arthur's aunt, and his only living blood relative. She has known him basically since birth, and has always tried to keep him from trouble

Aimie Greystone: "I wish I could give you the world, little one."
The child Arthur had discovered in the snow, he is uncertain if he should keep her and raise her as his own, or leave her to someone who could care for her better than himself

Saffire Harcourt: "For the love of the almighty, please let her be safe."
Having been unable to find her himself, he can only hope Daniel knows where she is. He has become worried that he has lost another mother (Angel) {Theme}

The Trusted

Carlos de Courtnay: "At least I'm the fun kind of heretic, eh Leon?"
He is relieved so much to be once again on friendly terms with Carlos, even though they now share different religious views. Arthur is always glad of the young lion's company, especially when so deeply troubled (MrMine) {Theme}

Daniel Cristian H.: "Seeing you bleed... I couldn't..."
Arthur's adoptive brother, he is very happy that Daniel has finally gotten married. He only wishes that Daniel was not harmed as he was. It was horrible... and yet he couldn't move... why couldn't he move? (Blorbis83) {Theme}

Tohm Mechaskus: "Commander, your grit never ceases to astound me."
Arthur looks up to Tohm as a gruff uncle figure, very commanding, and expecting of perfection. Despite his general scowling and stony exterior, Arthur knows the old man has a good heart and sound mind (Tohm) {Theme}

Forrest Westergard: "It was an honor serving with you, mon ami. Thank you."
He is glad that Forrest was understanding of his situation in leaving Hawklight. He will always consider him a close friend, and a trustworthy confidant (LeftwardElk)

The Befriended

Áedán Ó Corván: "I should hope it was not only Ignis which made us comrades."
Having known Áedán a good while now, he finds the older man enjoyable company, even if he is rather stoic. He hopes that they should remain friends, even though he has drifted from the church of Ignis (Jase)

Katla Croft: "Where in Altera have you gotten to, mon petit ami?"
Despite not having known the child long, the look in her eyes when he met her first was so damnably like his own that he could not but want to care for her. He has been very worried as to where she is currently (Arcana)

Laisa Dawnriver: "I hope Batard is happy with you, and you with him."
Arthur views Laisa, while peculiar in many ways, as a good person at heart. She is blunt, but that is no crime, and she is at least honest. He trusts her with Batard's care
(Samiwashere)


Isaac Dunrad: "I am glad you have chosen to aid us."
Despite a rather rocky past of Maceo's doctrine holding him back, Isaac finally seems to understand what the Pontifex really was at this point. He is a good, sturdy man with a solid set of morals, things Arthur admires (Joseph12Q)

Carling Herennia: "You work wonders with such simple needle and thread!"
A very kindly woman who has provided Arthur much help in terms of attire, she has stitched much of his wardrobe herself, and he is very grateful for it. He always enjoys watching her and her children go about (MelodyComplex)

Cassia Herennia: "I rather like the ring 'Afba' has to it, petit wordsmith!"
Carling's adorable infant daughter, she and Arthur hit it off immediately, her attempts at saying his name amount only to the word "Afba!" in repeated succession. He wants nothing more than to squish the child in a massive hug (MelodyComplex)

Ronak Rothguard: "You are quite the hardly little fellow, mon ami."
A dwarf Arthur met in Linlea who accompanied him to see Thôrdil. He seems to be quite amiable and good natured, and Art seems to enjoy his company (Mongoose )

Tania Ulamyer: "You are truly impressive for one so young. You'll make for a formidable warrior in time."
As someone of great skill and good heart, Art has very high hopes for Tania. He views her as a worthy young woman with much to provide to the world as a whole, and a larger role to play (StarWillow2000)

Irinei Veon: "I am glad to have a neighbor with such knowledge of 'Allergies'."
A rather interesting and complex young woman, he is glad to have been able to help her and Carlos feel better. He knows that she has a tendency to observe people, and that she is capable of more emotion than she thinks (Levansy)

Tirius Westergard: "If you'd keep your eyes from women's asses, you might actually get one."
As with his brother, Tirius is a stable, collected individual, even if not in the same ways. As Forrest is a bit more distant and calm, Tirius is content and relaxed. As such, he and Arthur are decently chummy (Tohm)

The Amiable

Lavender Caraway: "I'm glad that Carlos and I are less frightening."
Having only met her recently, he has yet to learn enough about her to call her a close friend, but he could see her becoming such in the future. He finds her and her siblings to be positively adorable (Ambillis)

Adiella Cor: "You seem to always have your hands rather full."
Despite her seeming merely like a kindly woman with a small child, he is impressed by the amount of chaos she and young Astrid caused while he was still in Artois. She seems to be a good mother, otherwise (bettemus99)

Astrid Cor-Seymour: "My, you really have grown!"
From what he's seen of her throughout her life, he's been amazed, impressed, and confused. That one child could send all of Altera into an uproar is incredible, and that she somehow kept the teddy he gave her warms his heart (Ruu)

Kam Hakaiz: "You never seem to speak much."
Possibly the only Earthspawn Arthur has ever met, she seems to show up very often in the oddest of places. This, however, could simply be because she is a constant companion to King Cymic (Kamaoe)

Drake Hawklight: "It is a great difficultly to call you a Prince, though not in a bad way."
Prince Hawklight has always struck Arthur as a very personal man, especially for a future King. He admires how much time Drake spends tending to his subjects, and finds him worth following at the very least (Jak)

Theodosius Herennius: "I can tell that I already quite like you, 'cousin'."
One of Daniel's many family members, he and Arthur have a lot in common as far as most things go, being men of similar morals and attitudes. He hopes that the Asrakosian ruler finds some comfort in his people (Blorbis83)

Elizabeth Kane: "It is to you to redeem the name of Kane."
With the loss of both of her parents, Arthur has found himself pitying the girl more and more. Understanding great loss himself, he has promised himself that he will show her nothing but kindness from now on (NIAH)

Kublai Kull: "Another ale for the dwarf king of the pages!"
Arthur loves nothing more than good company, and Kublai is among the best company a fellow could ask for. With his cheery optimism and interesting stories, he is certainly worth buying a pint for (Bartooliinii)

Cymic Seymour: "Your... highness...?"
By far the strangest and most unorthodox monarch Arthur has ever met, Cymic never ceases to find new ways to surprise him. He will never be able to fully grasp that Cymic is actually King of all Sangria (Cymic_)

Sugar Silveira: "Your kindness was most needed, I'll say. Merci."
He does not really 'know' Sugar in a personal sense. He knows very little of her, in fact, only really knowing that she is a good hearted woman with a motherly approach to people, not unlike to Saffire (Ruu)

Winter Silveira: "A harlequin is always lights up a room a bit, eh?"
Sugar's daughter, Arthur finds her incredibly amusing to be around. She seems to have a boundless, manic energy that most people he's met have never seen the likes of. In all, she's great fun (mokwar)

Andre Ursae: "I thank you so much for your enlightening words!"
A priest of Rahas who, with a bit of aid from a friendly Caparii woman, managed to show Arthur the way he had been seeking. He seeks very much to speak more with the venerable knight-cleric of Slyannen (UmbraSicarius)

The Neutral

Thôrdil Bárúmur: "Well, in retrospect, the paperweight was funny, but a bit much."
Arthur has no real opinion on Thôrdil as of yet. He is certainly a divisive figure, that much is true, as it seems he is either revered heavily, or despised as an asshole. Only time will tell (Jazzper)


Elijah du Beaumont: "Almighty, I feel so old!"
A young man who Arthur knew as just a little boy, he is surprised beyond belief that he has grown so much. Granted, the surprise is pleasant, as he seems a good, generous man
(Rue)


Kitrana Dawnriver: "Smile every now and then! No need to act as though the world is only darkness."
It is a very interesting relation that Arthur and Kitrana have. The two do not mix well at all, Arthur being far less serious than Kitrana and all, but times force them to work together anyhow
(French Roast)


Octavia Jones: "Take it from me, Madame. Sometimes whores are the best mothers."
Despite their seeming to piss each other off in the past, Arthur begins to see he was a bit of an ass to her. After learning she has found both love and child, he has decided perhaps she was never so bad to begin with (Samiwashere)

Marcelo Scorpetti: "I will always be thankful for your help."
Being a talented alchemist, Marcelo has helped Arthur with many wounds in the past with his potions. He is head of a group Arthur attends on occasion designed to help those in need via its members (pyrocide)

Tryg Strand: "Your willpower is impressive."
A very bold man of the farthest North who seems completely unfazed by the threats of tyrants or mobs, he is the priest of some goddess of the hunt, and seems to be a very good-hearted, honorable sort of man (French Roast)

The Uncertain

Pod Flanders: "We were once friends, comrades. We will never be thus again, but I hope we may at least not be enemies."
If he is ever to truly get past his guilt with Artois, Arthur must somehow make amends with Podric. Sadly, it would seem that is nearly impossible at this point (Luam)

Olive Kov'Gra'Sek: "Should I truly have saved you?"
He recalls among his first recent memories that he once saved this girl from certain death at the hands of the Kanes, yet he never 'met' her personally. He begins to wonder if that was a good choice (Smurf)

Dum'ni Plug: "Well... you do own many bees..."
A contender with Cymic for the strangest person Arthur has ever met, the man is supposedly some wise sage of old with great power, but Arthur cannot help being made uneasy in his presence (dUMMY)

The Nameless Knight: "I wish I could thank you..."
The one man who inspired Arthur's gallant and righteous dreams, all he can recall of the Knight is a blue cross and kind, starry eyes

The Disfavored

For those who Art does not hate, but cannot bring himself to like

The Abhorred

Francis de Courtnay: "How is it that you are less tolerable now than you were before?"
Francis is still alive, and Arthur is, to be honest, less than enthused. He could never bring himself to hurt Francis in the past, but he has sorely wanted to (BoredBrit)

Preotul Vârcolac: "I am not sure even consider that... creature, to be human!"
Another crazed devotee, this one even more staunch than Pod or Maceo, following a god of chaos and evil. Arthur keeps a very wide distance from that maniac, but still hears horrid stories of his unsettling ways (Morbid)

The Departed

Igraine Ashenfell: "I long for the day when I can hold your hand one last time..."
Arthur's mother, the woman who raised him, a harlot, and the one wound which time cannot heal. She is the reason Arthur can never look a pleasure woman in the eyes

Henri Bayard: "Rest easy, father. Your name will live on."
He will never fully get over losing his father, but he has no choice but to move on. At least now he has finally been laid to rest in the country he built, by the people he loved (Archbishop) {Theme}

Francis de Courtnay: "I cannot say I miss you, but I do feel sorry for you."
Arthur remembers the stuck up and impudent ways of Francis with mixed anger and sorrow. Even at his worst, Arthur had been willing to save his life, and never could bring himself to strike him down (BoredBrit)


Maceo de Courtnay: "For both our sakes, I hope your rest is peaceful, and eternal."
Arthur chooses to just accept that this is what had to happen. Maceo may have been among his greatest enemies, but he chooses to remember the noble knight, not the madman who came later (BoredBrit)

Alison Kane: "Your departure does not undo your harm. Please, stay dead."
While she drew breath, Arthur hated Alison Kane. A tyrant, a witch, and among the most abhorrent people he has ever met, he still cannot even say he feels bad about her death. Gods have mercy on her vile soul (Elz)

Harley Mardin: "But in dreams, I shall hear your name..."
The one most beloved hing in his life, and the source of his greatest joy. His love for her was all consuming, and even in death, her beloved voice still rings in his ears. No matter future events, she will always be held in his heart (Brushy Bristle) {Theme}

Brennard Westmay: "Perhaps you were not unlike myself, once..."
Duke Westmay was the one man Arthur ever had it within himself to genuinely fear. It was not his magic or his power that frightened Arthur, but that he could see himself in Brennard's eyes. Only time and war will tell (Mitch)

Star, the White Wolf: "Too many lights go out in this world. You were one of them."
The White Wolf was always someone Arthur respected, as she was among the happiest, most kindly people he knew. Her loss is a true blow to those who called her friend, and he will truly miss her (ToastySpam)

Inspirations
The characters who have inspired Arthur Ashenfell are many, but the four who make up his main personality are King Arthur Pendragon of "Le Morte de Arthur", Alexander Hamilton, Anakin Skywalker of "Star Wars", and T.E. Lawrence, better known as "Lawrence of Arabia". As far as physical characteristics go, he is a blatant and unabashed ripoff of Jon Snow from the HBO and George R.R. Martin TV series "Game of Thrones"

Equipment
Courageux (Longsword)

Arthur's longsword of Lavoyard make, it is made of durable steel, and is always kept beside him. Its grip has engraved upon it the words "I Am the Sword in The Darkness", and it bears the bronze head of a badger for a pommel

Buteur (Longbow)


A sturdy oak longbow made by Arthur himself, he has kept it up and improved upon it over time. It has a good draw strength, and can fire an arrow with lethal force

Mon Espoir (Rapier)


The only weapon he found in tact near his father, Arthur took it as a sign of hope, and a memory of his father. It is well balanced, and seems to have good craftsmanship. Though not as powerful as Courageux, the rapier is far lighter, and is an effective weapon in close quarters

"I had hoped of more from you, but you are just another Kane."

It's too late at this point, she's just another Kane to cut down, and Artair sees no reason not to.
Aww. I dont remember any direct interactions since Compendium. Sad day. :(
