Crown Prince Drake Ferreum Hawklight The First of His Name, Heir Presumptive to the Kingdom of Hierax, Inheritor to the Patriarchy of the House Hawklight, Duke of Dawnshard, Count of the Eastern Watch, Count of East Osberht Drake was born as the younger twin to Keaton Hawklight, sons of Madyson Windhelm and Zanros Castellan Hawklight, in the town below Wintermourne Citadel. While he received a short magical education from Madyson, his true skill and goal was the use of a sword and shield. At only a few weeks, his uncle, Polo Hawklight, handed him a wooden sword - this would spur on Drake's commitment to swordsmanship and duelling. Through numerous negative dealings with the beast races, chief among these the Nakam, Syrien and Demons, Drake grew to dislike these non-humans, seeing them as lesser beings. This, combined with his sense of entitlement to power as the Heir to Hawklight at most points in his life, lead to Drake having a sense of self-superiority. While this was mostly dulled due to the stripping of his titles and his banishment from Hierax, it is still present. The recent pardon by Axex Hawklight will likely bring this aspect of him to light once more. His father was lost to him to an incurable disease - this death did not hit as hard as his mother's however, who lost her life to the foul hand of a demon. Drake joined, and left, the Inquisition, losing, and regaining, his right arm in the process. This gifted him with a certain ambidextrous talent, as he trained heavily and fought often with only his left arm during this period. After many years as Duke of Dawnshard, Drake attempted an illegal sale of the Duchy, leading to his banishment from the Kingdom of Hierax. He headed south, using the money he had gained to purchase the rights to a large expanse of land around a bend in a river. He founded this city as Reignfall, and it was settled on top of the ancient dwarven ruins of Tahkul Rimtar. There, he retired his title to Illthilior Athrendu, and went on a pilgrimage to seek divine inspiration. Drake has since been pardoned by the Kingdom, and has returned as Duke of Dawnshard, Heir to the Kingdom and Prince of Hawklight. With the flight to the new world, and his uncle's continuing ill health, Drake has assumed the role he has always sought - one of command, and leadership, within Hawklight. Camp Norman, the first landing site of Hawklight and the majority of the population of the old world was established on the island now known as Greater Skye, and while it flourished, a better location for permanent settlement was found in the north. Blackstone was founded, and is currently still being built higher and wider, with farms and houses popping up under the tower spires of the fort itself. --- Drake Hawklight is a human male (age, 35) from the north - pale skin, dull green eyes and a rather tall stature of six foot two (inherited from his father), identify him. He is rather average, appearance-wise, with a brown mop of head and facial hair that is kept generally tidy. His hygiene is perfect, being high nobility. Drake is missing his left earlobe. He has a scar that runs a ring around where his right arm meets his body. He has a tattoo of a rose on his chest, above his heart. He has recently married Sel Telarion, a silver elf of the Terlaion nobility, and their first children have been born. Three boys, the first two human and the third elven. Among his other trueborn family, he knows of only one left alive - Axex Hawklight. Drake has, however, sired many bastards over the course of his life. His grandparents on his father's side were Ferreum (after whom he is named) and Triss Hawklight - He knows not his mother's lineage. His brother is assumed dead, alongside his younger sister Selena. His aunt Valisa is, and has been, missing since Drake reached the age of 18. His permanent, prized possessions include Talon (the longsword gifted to him by his father, before his passing) and another longsword, now called Dawnshard, taken from Archaeus Fronte (crafted by Vorar, this sword is exceedingly well made). A suit of plate armour made by Drake Rock, the wedding rings of his parents (Zanros and Madyson) and a gyrfalcon named Dawn, are also particularly valued. His opinions towards humans, elves and dwarves are generally neutral. All other races are seen in a negative light - it will take proof that they are not the corrupted or bestial creatures he suspects they are. He especially despises demons, for they killed his mother and took his last close family member from him. Has a fondness for the piano and cartography, and is currently practising such skills. His true strengths lie in two things only; a skill with longswords and a skill with his tongue. He can speak well and fight well. Trained by some of the greatest swordsman of their generation, Axex, Zanros and Polo, he has an eminent skill with blades. Demons, and other such creatures lie among those things he particularly fears. Rightly he fears the Gods aswell, for they have a source of great divine power. His weaknesses are particularly with a bow, nor is he a strong rider (and from this, not good with a lance). He also finds himself to be rather partial to the finer aspects of life.
