Arthur&Karina_Cold.jpg

§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 du Blaireau: "I will keep you safe, my dear little pup..."
It is decided, and it will not be undone. He will raise her as his own, and offer her all the love that entails

Karina Harcourt: "I have never been so happy in all my life."
The time has finally come. Arthur is finally getting the happy ending he has always wanted, and he will always thank the divine for this wonderful woman (Angel)

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.: "People have differences of opinion. I am alright with that."
Arthur's adoptive brother. He wishes that Daniel would understand his mindset, but cannot blame him for how he sees the world. He just hopes they can agree to disagree (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~

Thôrdil Bárúmur: "It would seem that I truly did get 'ahead' of myself in those caves, non?"
Arthur has grown decently fond of Thôrdil since the Blight, even owing him a good amount for saving his sword and keepsakes from being stolen or lost. Still, he is a bit wary of Lord Bárúmur, as it almost seems he is being kept about for a reason (Jazzper)


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)

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 )

Eleanor Strand: "I am glad you are feeling better now."
Having recently grown closer to Ellie, he has learned she has quite the spirit. She may have some seeming self image issues, but Art still thinks she is as pretty as ever, even if her hair is a bit close-cropped (Samiwashere)

Segar Strand: "It does not matter what you did. What matters is why, and I will respect that."
After Segar's return from beyond, Arthur has found him good company. He may still have some doubts as to what happened between Segar and Reynard, but he leaves it be (French Roast)

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)

The Amiable~

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)

Cedlas Feredir: "Perhaps you can do better if given the chance."
Arthur can relate to the elf in many ways, especially having heard of his past transgressions. He can understand Cedlas' want to redeem himself, and is happy to help on his path (Swiftspear)

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)

James Varyn: "Your reasonable ways impress me, Monsieur Varyn."
Initially wary of the Varyn name, Arthur was pleasantly surprised by his interactions with James, finding that he seems a good, stalwart man (TheDeester)

The Neutral~

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)


Constantine: "Perhaps the promise I see in you is valid. Only one way to know for certain."
A young lad he met at about the same time as Sigmar, he sees a lot of himself in the boy, and wonders if he will be a good candidate for the Project (MoralityMan)

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)

Sigmar: "Non, I am certain. I have seen your face somewhere before..."
Curiosity floods Arthur's mind at the thought of that boy, with the oddly familiar eyes and features. He does not know why, but somehow, Sigmar instills in him a sense of... guilt...? (Archbishop)

Uriel: "A truly interesting dagger, mon ami."
Yet another young man with a sense of intrigue surrounding him. His questions concerning the knight's profession as well as his background has led Arthur to take a special interest in this boy (BoredBrit)

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)

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~

Sir Reynard: "You might have made a decent point, had you not tried to hide your deeds with death."
Reynard initially seemed to be at least an honest man. However, he has now committed crimes which very much mirror Arthur's own, and it would seem both will pay the price (TheDeester)

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)

Alison Kane: "And here I had thought the Blight was our greatest enemy."
Despite having been resurrected from the dead himself, Arthur is far less pleased that Alison too lives once more. He makes no pretense about his wish to return her to the grave (Elz)

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}

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)

Saffire Harcourt: "You will never be a memory. Mother."
Saffire had done so much for Arthur, taking him in, caring for him, helping him any way she could, and he will never forget that. All Saffire ever wanted was a family, and Arthur is proud to be a part of it (Angel) {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)

The Absent~

There have been many Arthur has met throughout the years, and many fall to the back of his mind for the moment. Though remembered, they are little more than that

Drake Hawklight (Jak
Irinei Veon (Levansy)
Dum'ni Plug (dUMMY)
Tirius Westergard (Tohm)
Marcelo Scorpetti (pyrocide)
Octavia Jones (Samiwashere)
Áedan Ó Corván (Jase)
Lavender Caraway (Ambillis)
Adiella Cor (bettemus99)
Astrid Cor-Seymour (Ruu)
Katla Croft (Arcana)


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"

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

and here i was, thinking that the only reason the deal was accepted was because neither of them had any knowledge of it at all. the only one who knew for sure was dead.

Elizabeth Kane (Niah)
"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. :(

Most of what he knows of Elizabeth has been told through others. He hasn't seen her himself, but he's not heard anything good.
