~~~~~=Relationships=~~~~~
Loved:
*Amelia: "You remind me what it's like to be a person. Not a tool or a weapon for someone to make use of. I do love you, even though I think I make that hard to see sometimes. I'm working on it though. You've opened me up to feeling again. Something I shut off assuming it for the best that I only focus on my duties and nothing more. Opening me up to the idea I am worth loving. That happiness outside of duty is possible." Samiwashere

*Tavia: "She injected, pushed, and forced herself into my life. Originally I felt disdain, then I found myself going to Storm's Landing just to see her. I fell in love with her. It opened my eyes to the possibilities of more than my duty. I know my feelings are one sided, and nothing will come of it. I just hope she stays happy." Samiwashere

Friends:
*Percy: "He was the first person I opened up to and found a solid friendship in. The only person I told about Tav. I just wish I knew where he went. My friend." Creampuff Boy

Liked:
*Veri: "I've been around her enough to find a level of respect for her. Her dedication to Citrine is admirable and I respect it." godfather1

*Queen Citrine: "While I find her to be too carefree and too eager to trust. I admire her greatly. I will fight for her, and I will die to protect her. My Queen, I am yours to command. "Samiwashere

*Cymic: "The King of Sangria and for that I show respect. I didn't initially care for him. That opinion has since changed. As a member of the Fortune Runners, with an off chance of learning more about him and his devotion to Jax.." Cymic_


*Astrid: "Cymic's daughter. She's a cute kid, and certainly has some spunk. Hopefully her father doesn't ruin her." Ruu

*Agnar: "I do enjoy his energy. He radiates confidence and it's infectious." Kamaoe

*Kitrana: "I find her to be very good company. The serious, no nonsense personality is welcomed. I'd much like to know her better, and learn more of the House she serves." godfather1

*Andre: "He seems.. off. We've only met once and I am highly unimpressed with him." UmbraSicarius

*Tryg: "How can I not respect him? I'd like to drink with him again some time." godfather1


Disliked:

280 is still ridiculous. that's modern bodybuilder on steroids level, if achievable at all
I will say, trimming the weight down just a tad might be necessary. But then again, there's a lot of weights on a lot of characters that make little to no sense for their race.

I don't know weights very well but going through the first couple of pages of human male character profiles I don't think theres anyone but maybe one who pushes 210lbs.

I mean, I did do personal training for awhile. So maybe that's just where my weights are coming from. Thor Bjornsson is 6'9 400+lbs last I heard as an actual strong man in the profession and he's pretty proportional to his weight. I just took into consideration real medieval life was a chore all in itself and manual labor alone builds muscle and burns calories and can equate to fairly physical bodies. Most warrior types would generally be lean or hefty in regards to what they do versus modern times now. I'll trim it though. Thanks for the heads up guys.

Edit: I wasn't looking for Connor to be your typical lean cut, rippling abs. He does have a some heft to him. He's a big guy. XD

So, running with the fact he isn't a total muscle madness character with lean abs and over the top bulging arms, the setting, and life style, taking the provided chart into it. 220lbs? That's about the size Ben Affleck was in BvsS.
