]Detailed Relations:

]Family:

Alison Kane (Mother) Elz
Charles wishes she had been something different, and quietly hopes she will be. But she does not seem to have changed enough for him to forgive her.

Brennard Westmay (Father) Mitch
Charles' father has finally found peace in death that he never had in life.


Elizabeth Kane (Sister) NIAH
Elizabeth is the closest loved one that Charles has. He feels whole when she is near, and though his proximity is often protective, she is one of the few comforting presences he keeps in this time of strife. Elizabeth's arcane talents provide safety, the confidence that those around them are who they say, and he relies on her as a gut check to ensure things are well. The unfortunate circumstance is that in times of turmoil she seeks solitude, while he seeks to never be alone.
Their talents and proclivities may differ, but he regards her as an equal partner, and he is determined to walk her paths with her to see where his may be of aid.


Aleksandar Kane (Brother) Solus
Charles' notions of guilt over his departure were shattered when his brother returned from the past. He understands most of his decision, agrees with some of it, but the years Charles spent in solitude were not how he wanted it to go. At least he had the decency to disown himself before he went.


]Peers:
Jaden (Right hand) CloakedReaper
Jaden is one of the few that Charles can leave in charge of a situation with no doubts that it will be taken care of. His intuition rivals Charles' own, and he takes quiet relief when Jaden matches his own conclusions and observations.


]Respected:
Leofaren (Duty) Shankster
Charles knows they have disagreed, and does not assume that Leofaren has forgiven him. Despite this, Leofaren saved his life, and fulfills his duties diligently.

Podric (Crusader) Luam
His strength lies in his conviction, but it too can be a liability. Charles respects his determination, but knows now to measure it carefully before utilizing it.

Raalvara (Volatile) Raal
Charles remembers in equal measure why he left her, and why he fell for her. He cares for her as a friend, and hopes she finds happiness.


]Acquaintances:
Francis (Reliable) BoredBrit
Francis has the uncanny ability to do what Charles wants before he asks it. His humor is a welcome relief from the tension of their surroundings, and Charles further thinks him canny for this.

Fleur (Intriguing) Smurf
It was passing curiosity.

Gael (Storyteller) Scardrac
The man always seems to have a story to share, which Charles enjoys. Beyond this, he knows little of the man beyond the fact that he had a history with his parents.

James (Lecher) TheDeester
Elizabeth tolerates him. Charles thinks him rude and arrogant, and though he understands why he lied to the council about the conflict between Raalvara and Oskar, he does not appreciate or trust him for it.

Grey (Self-righteous) Estes241
Charles has spent more time staring into this man's eyes than he did with Raalvara. .

Ashna (Receptive) Solus
He has beset her with a terrible hardship. He hopes she can keep the wisdom to endure it with their aid.

Otto (Determined) Paint
The boy is capable and brave. Charles hopes he can teach him to think critically of those above him, and not follow quite so blindly. Convenient as it may be.

Lilith (Helpful) Arcana
Charles knows little of the woman beyond her readiness to aid him after his brief flight and rough landing. He is grateful that she and the others were there, and owes her one back for it.

Nikoloche (Double-edged sword) Niko
Far too careless with his powers. He may be useful, but Charles is not inclined to rely on him.

Melarue (Compassion) Elz
Clever enough for him to endorse Elizabeth's trust in her, but she shows a tendency to enter situations without appreciating their risk.

Ater (Carefree) Magiik
Charles enjoys his humor in doses, but the Sooleran has perhaps grown too comfortable with it. Charles thinks him useful, reliable, and largely agreeable, but thinks he lacks the necessary respect.

Olive(Mildly Crazy) Smurf
You could probably make about half a brick wall out of the Formists' various stone limbs, and conversing with her is like talking to a full one.

Lisbet (Polite) Elz
Loyal, and does her duties well. Charles is intrigued to see what she may become, and where her talents may grow. Her company is entertaining, and Charles catches himself taking glances more often than not. He has no great stake in his interest, but he would not be opposed to seeing where it goes.

Gilligan (Healer) Samwych
A curious fellow, and not entirely disagreeable. The display in the final cave was like meeting a whole new person. He will Killigan.


]Liabilities:
Kethron (Naive)
He did not even understand why we chided him. Charles considers him a fool to place such stock in an agent of their great foe that has already lied to them.

Kitrana (Insubordinate)
The woman has displayed a stunning capacity to neither understand strategy nor place stock in those who do. Charles will not rely on her further.


]Foes:
Tirius (Conspiracy)
I trusted my instincts. If only Father had.

Alexander Prochazka (Barbarian)
Only dogs do not know discipline, honor. You seem unfamiliar with either.

Distinguishing Features: Charles looks like the teen antagonist of an 80s movie where the protagonists are scrappy and the main character is a dog.
Beautiful. Absolutely stunning.

Edit: Fully read the profile, already my new favorite character.
