PHYSICAL APPEARANCE:
Francis is a man of averages. His height, weight and build can be deemed fairly "average" given those that surround him. He stands proud at 5'11 with a build that is hardly anything impressive. In fact, unlike the monsters of meat and muscle that inhabit other parts of Altera, Francis is quite slim. The muscle that Francis has developed is mostly found in his shoulders and arms, as would be expected of a cavalryman from the North.
However, unlike many of those native to the North-West, wavy lengths of reddish ginger hair grow from his head and are often tied back for practicality. Scars pock and mark his pale face found on the bridge of his nose, beneath his stormy sea-blue eyes and a rather nasty looking puncture scar that is found on his neck. In recent days, a shadow of patchy red stubble has begun to form along Francis' jaw, hinting at the far-away possibility of a beard, it is left to grow freely so as to bring attention away from the marring of his face. Upon his back there is a large and painstakingly perfect depiction of Ignis Synnove's Holy Sun branded into his very flesh with divine origins.
Francis often finds himself wearing simple doublets, waistcoats and shirts of varying colours, with blue and red being particular favourites of his. These articles of clothing are kept clean and cared for well, as is the rest of Francis' appearance when there is time to do so. A longsword with a pommel inlaid with glowstone is kept sheathed at his side at all times along with a walrus tusk seax dagger. On occasions that Francis finds himself armoured, he wears modified plate armour that belonged to his Uncle, it is during these times that Francis also carries a rather long goat's horn trumpet inlaid with celtic swirls of silver and green paint.

PERSONALITY:
No man or woman in the Eastern Kingdoms can talk about Oranges quite as much as Francis. He is obsessively infatuated with the small citrus orbs to the ends of wanting to leave Linlea to brave the blighted Continent in search of just a single crate. This statement says a lot about Francis in itself, he is an obsessive and emotionally driven individual who does not consider the consequences of his actions until he is forced to meet them head on... and he really fucking loves oranges.
Much of Francis' personality has been taken from the influences he has had in his life, some aspects of which he is not proud of and tries to hide, only for them to shine all the more. He is quick to anger, impatient and slow to forgive, all traits that he has inherited from his father and the family members that helped raise him.

HISTORY:
Francis was born to Maceo and Serafina de Courtnay in their residence within the Queensport Palace. He lost his mother as she gave birth to his twin brother, Donnchadh. From this moment, he was brought up with the joint efforts of his father, grandmother and uncles. He was whisked from home to home, not truly settling in any place until he reached the age of three. It was at this point that his father died the first time and Francis was left alone with his Grandmother in Lyon.

Only months later was Francis left alone again. His Grandmother was kidnapped and taken hostage in Queensport and the young lordling was left to be raised by Serving staff and Guards. Francis grew up without much in the way of a personal touch, his Father returned every so often, only to ensure that Francis was still being cared for. Or, in the case of Francis' sixth birthday and the last time that Francis saw his father, to tell him that he was to leave Lyon and head North to live with Ronn Holztorc.

For five years Francis lived with his Uncle, helping him in the lumber works and with the upkeep of Rammbar's Motte. In all that time, stories of his father's conflicts and petty crusades set to grow a great disdain for Maceo within the Lordling. Enemies and rivalries spanning the entire continent, sowing dissent against his name. Francis grew to resent his father's God and all that followed him. It was this resentment that pushed Francis into the hands of House Kane and the Varyns and begun his descent into heresy and magic. A path that he is only now beginning to remedy.

RELATIONS:
James Varyn - TheDeester [Advice] Francis has come to see James as one that he can rely on, but he cannot help but feel that James does not approve of his choices as of late. He wishes he could change this.

Raalvara Varyn - Raal [Valiant] Francis has had a strange relationship with Raalvara. At first he thought very little of her, but since she joined his extended family, he has begun to see her as someone he can go to for help and company.

Fleur de Courtnay - Smurf [Aunt] Francis has not seen his aunt since he was a child. Yet, still she denounced him. Francis does not hold this against her though he does intend to fix things.

Mathieu de Courtnay - Paint [Child] Francis has never met his brother. He expects him to be soft.

Arielle du Lavoyarde - Elz [Child] As with Mathieu, Francis hasn't met his sister. He expects that she is probably soft and absentminded.



Elizabeth Kane - NIAH [Friend] Francis has few people that he considers to be friends, fewer even that he trusts completely. Despite them not having seen each other for quite some time, Francis does not forget his first friend and would do anything to help her cause.

Charles Kane - Lannis [Commander] A man that Francis considers to be a friend, or rather a friendly acquaintance. He does as Charles says, when it is said. He admires the man's patience and tact, knowing that he will never be the same.

Podric Flanders - Luam [Ignis] A father, teacher and friend. Podric has taken Francis under his wing to succeed in his footsteps and that of Maceo. Francis holds immeasurable respect for this man.

Jaden Seeker - CloakedReaper [Mage] A man who knows how to push Francis' to the edge but also knows how to bring him back. Francis sees Jaden as family, even if there is no blood shared between them.

Joseph - JoeJoe [Ranger] Francis thinks Joe is a strange one, having only met him a few times. He sees that Pod respects him, which means he cannot be all bad.

Otto - Paint [Soldier] Otto was there when Francis' faith was restored. Otto stood with him in the ruins of Lyon, a comforting presence. Francis respects him for that, and the fact that he saved his life in that cave.

Y'know, usually I wouldn't jump to the "OOC hate!!!1!" comment, but that was just uncalled for. Do I even need to say why?
