    Eyes: Green
    Skin: Somewhat pale, a typical northern skin tone
    Identifying Marks:
    • The blue-purple tattoos of various words and phrases on his right arm, the largest and most obvious of which is the name "Sarah". Two notable long scars, like claw marks, run through them.
    • A scar on his upper left arm from a stab wound.
    Appearance: He usually wears a neutral expression, seeming somewhat reserved, though his eyes are as sharp as ever.
    Clothing:
    • A black tabard with blue trim that he wears over hard leather armor. He wears a thick robe-like cloak of blue-grey felt and bearskin over this. Usually worn.
    • A set of gothic plate armor. Only worn ceremoniously, very rarely.
    • A snow camouflage cloak sewn from white rabbit pelts. Worn situationally.
    Weaponry:
    • [Snowfang, the Unyielding]- family longsword
      • The dark steel grip is shaped like a wolf head; it’s eyes set with quartz. The grip has been shaped to comfortably fit either one or two human hands and its core consists of dense stag antler, covered in high quality ‘Witcher III fiend’ leather.
      • The rectangular arms of the dark steel cross-guard have been sanded, polished and inscribed with the words “Wisdom Guide Our Strength”.
      • The master-crafted dark steel blade of the longsword is 100 centimeters long with a gradual profile taper and is inscribed with [x].
    • Bearded war ax, Ulvensmaw
    • Hunter's bow, Hauksyn
    • Bastard sword, Jegerstyrke (given to Theo Calderon)
    • A dirk hidden on his back
    • Roundshield painted with the blue and black of Stoltfar
    Theodra's Blessing:
    • [Hound]: Once per week an astral wolf/stag can be summoned to guide the user towards a specific quarry that is named upon summoning. The animal may not interact with the mortal plane. It always arrives at its target approximately one minute after being invoked; it moves at a leisurely stroll if nearby, but appears as little more than a flash of ghostly fur if it's asked to find something across the continent. Once the quarry in question is spotted by it, the spirit disappears. The spirit cannot be seen by the targeted quarry, but is visible to everyone else. (Last used: --)

He loves his family and his close friends deeply, and the slightest threat towards them will provoke him. Any violation of his trust is nigh impossible to repair. He lives by a strict code of honor, but he will always put the good of his people before that code if he is forced to do so.

    godfather1 Lord of Altera

    Character Name:
    Tryg Strand
    Race:
    Human
    In-game Town/City:
    Stoltfar
    Relations

    Family & Clan:


    Segar, his son- "You're at the age when you should learn to start defending yourself." Tryg cares dearly for his son. It is not in the way of his family to treat him differently simply for being a bastard, and he loves him just as much as Eleanor, as does Odette. ShaolinPunk

    Odette, his wife- "Gods I love you." Tryg is completely dedicated to the woman and would never even consider betraying her or going behind her back. Unstable and violent as she may be, he knows that she returns that loyalty beyond a shadow of a doubt. He grows more worried about her with recent events. Samiwashere

    Eleanor, his daughter- "I'm so sorry you've had to see the things you've seen..." Tryg cares dearly for his daughter. He is made nervous by her current religious cynicism, but is not too concerned, as he is sure it is just a childish phase that he can bring to pass with time. @???

    Theo Calderon- "Move on or you'll just end up regretting it, trust me." Tryg cares for Theo practically as a second son, and he sees the potential for a very wise advisor in him. He's begun training the lad in swordsmanship. Edouard2000

    Carlos de Courtnay- "Oh lad, what am I going to do with you..." Carlos is an adopted clan member. Tryg cares for him and hopes to make a wiser man out of him, but with his recent rash decisions and stubbornness he grows worried and frustrated with him. MrMine


    People of Stoltfar:

    Arisha Niamh- "Very different from your sister indeed." Arisha has proven to be much wiser and kinder than her sister Arianne, whom was banished from Stoltfar for proving to be foolish and apathetic towards her clan. Tryg is grateful for the role she plays as the town healer. RagingLunacy



    Respected/Loyalties:

    Thordil Barumur- "A mysterious dwarf, but one that I think I can trust." Tryg hasn't spoken to the King of the Hill very much in person, but they have developed a certain unspoken alliance and mutual respect for one another. Tryg also appreciates the numerous gifts he's received from the dwarf's forges. Jazzper

    Citrine Azerwind of Mockingbay- "You're quite a formal and friendly young lady." Tryg is impressed by the young woman's strength and tact in dealing with the situations that have been forced on her, and is glad to have met her in person. Samiwashere

    Kharn Sicarus of Aeroch Nor- "I'm incredibly grateful for your continued friendship and help, even if the rest of your house is a bunch of southern pricks." Kharn has been very supportive of Tryg and Odette, both as a trusted advisor and ally, and as a good friend. Warwolf


    Neutral:

    Adiella- "A kind woman with some wit about her." Tryg knows she isn't the first woman to fall for Cymic and likely won't be the last, he doesn't blame her for this. He likes her well enough that he would give her a place in Stoltfar if she asked for it. bettemus99

    Réynard- "A fun drinking partner and tavern brawler." Tryg had an entertaining bar fight with the man in good fun. Despite their different religious alignments, he's found Réynard to be thoughtful and pleasant company to be around in Storm's Landing. TheDeester


    Forrest Westergard- "A northerner through and through." One of the more tolerable members of House Hawklight, Tryg has enjoyed being in the man's company while at Storm's Landing and wouldn't mind drinking with him more. LeftwardElk

    John of Gaunter- "Gods damned Ignites..." Tryg finds the man somewhat annoying for the way he has talked about Theodra as though she is submissive to Ignis, and finds the idea that Her doctrine is a part of some greater commandments of the Fire Goddess to be a despicable bastardization of Theodra's true teachings. Nonetheless, he has no reason to outright hate or particularly distrust the man. Cap

    Joe- "He seems a good lad." Tryg has enjoyed talking with Joe and has given him guidance on more than one occasion. He is glad to see a young man who is eager to be a true devotee to Theodra. Wandering Ranger



    Unsure of:

    Cymic Seymour of Sangria- "You're treading on thin ice." Tryg is wary of Cymic for the recent actions he's aware of the Grape King taking. The future will determine if things will improve between them or not. Cymic_



    Disfavorable:

    --


    Enemies:

    Arianne Niamh- "You're just as much of a childish wench as I remembered." Tryg despises the woman for what he sees as an utter lack of true loyalty or care for others. He's convinced that everybody who ever invests trust in her is bound to eventually be sorely disappointed in her, if not feel outright betrayed by her, and that if she continues unstopped she'll eventually find herself unwelcome and exiled from every city and country in the realm.
    Bobert

    Alison Kane, Brennard Westmay and the Kane/Varyn Alliance- "One way or another, I'll see you in the Great Wilderness." Elz Mitch Arken


    Immortalized in Memory:

    Ciaria Caedit, friend- "The last time we spoke is a memory I will never forget." It was beneath a tree in the gardens of Queensport, and she was broken. Tryg nearly wanted to sit and cry with her. He held a deep respect for the kind woman, and viewed her as a dear friend. He despises the way Alison spits on her name. BrianAT16

    Niah Kane, his lady- "I swore loyalty to you, and Alistair still holds that loyalty." Tryg honors her memory by honoring his commitment of loyalty to her house, and his continued searching for an opportunity to bring her traitor daughter to justice. Niah

    Amberley, eternal torment- "I made a horrible mistake..." Tryg made the wrong choice. He will never learn the truth about who killed them. Bob_the_BuilderPet

    Sarah and Herrick, first love and son- "I will never forget what I had." (backstory)

    Althalos Sadin, 'brother'- "We certainly didn't agree on everything, but you were a good man and a loyal ally..." Tryg always thought the lad was idealistic to a fault and at the same time lacking in honor in some ways, but he was always kind, and he was a loving brother to him, and uncle to the children. He will be missed. Electric

    You should feel very special, and I feel very stupid for forgetting your username XD

    Edit: Also you should feel very special because I think Nicholas made it onto "disliked" faster than anyone else. Congratulations, Nicholas told Tryg to go against his primary value and give up on Cat on their first meeting XD

    Does anyone know what Samantha or Cat's forum usernames are? ;-;
