]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 (Compass) NIAH
Elizabeth is the only loved one that Charles has, and means the world to him. His sentiment is reflected on their sigil; twin pillars supporting the future of their house. Their differences are what make them strong together, and Charles is not-quietly proud of her capability. He will always be protective of her, but trusts her to take care of herself when he's not around. Charles has few reservations in matters pertaining to her safety, and would do a great many unpleasant things if it meant keeping her safe.
Charles trusts Elizabeth for guidance, and for them to balance each other out. They both pursue victory above most else, but he trusts one of them to have reasonable reservations in any given situation.


Aleksandar Kane (Brother) Solus
Charles has said what he needed to say to find peace, but suspects that little has changed between him and Aleksandar. He still thinks Aleksandar should have managed to be the adult, and that he has not yet grown out of that failing.


]Peers:
Jaden (Right hand) CloakedReaper
Jaden is one of the very few that Charles considers to approach a comparable degree of competence as himself and his sister. The ranger is clever, powerful, and reliable, and Charles takes their friendship to be the sort that is understood more than it is expressed.


]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 is concerned for her current situation.

Lisbet (Ignored red flags) Elz
Feelings were not part of the deal, and Charles cut them before they grew thorns. He does care for her, but that is a path he thinks irresponsible to take.

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.

Reivos (Strongarm) Niko
The bird is more powerful than anticipated.


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

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.

Lilith (Helpful) Arcana
Charles considers her useful to have under their employ, but thinks she lacks the initiative to do much independently. She is reliable enough.

Ashna (Receptive) Solus
They found an understanding before the blight's end. If not friends, he does consider her an ally.


]Acquaintances:
Fleur (Flur) Smurf
It was passing curiosity.

James (Tyrant) TheDeester
Charles thinks he is much like Brennard. He sees what he might have become in James, were he not Charles Kane.

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

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.

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.

Hartwin (Guard) blargtheawesome
The man struck Charles as not being wholly sincere in his praise of the generosity of nobles, and his casual intention of correcting Charles' speech gave him the impression that his degree of deference is more appropriate to the city guard.

Nwalme (Disrespect) blargtheawesome
Charles takes Nwalme to be the sort of man that is accustomed to bullying his way into getting what he wants. He knows the dance of politics and the games that are played, but Charles thinks his tactics to be out of touch and classless. Nonetheless, his offer was interesting, but Charles will make rather than accept one.

Sigmar (Child) Archbishop
Sigmar is a child with worthy, but not uncommon aspirations. Charles makes some effort to see that he is taken care of, but does not consider him much past this.


]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.

Francis (Lost) BoredBrit
Charles considers the amiable, lighthearted Francis to be gone to them. He does not know where his anger will lead, but does not think their next duel would end with words.



]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.
