Magister of Finance

Nicknames:
None yet

Age:
90

Human

Storm's Landing

Social Status:
That slow, dusty, old guy that thinks too much and talks too slow
That gentle old guy that likes to have polite conversations, mostly with nobles and important people.


Intelligence:
Very high, with a large sense of empathy and regard of the 'bigger picture'.

Snowbeard in short:
He is an indoor man. He likes to be employed by royalty, with their great warm halls and large libraries. To be paid a good salary so he can buy good warm clothes. Nothing about him is fast. He moves slow, his bones fragile, afraid they might shatter if he'd fall. Which is not an impossibility, to be honest. Because he is very conservative, he likes to address royalty in the formal way and will not stop when asked to just call them by their simple first name.

All in all, he's a very formal man with good manners.

"I write for those to whom I owe my allegiance. Those are them of high degree; those with coin."

Thin and pointy.

Height & Weight:
Very tall, about 2,20m. Very thin and lean.

Build:
His neck is straight above of his shoulders, his shoulders perch out to the side not unlike a bird. His thin neck makes you wonder how the weight of his long beard is not too much for him to bare.
He looks fragile, about to break from old age. Perhaps he's just a very nice person, to have been blessed to be able to live this long in this state? Only the Gods know!


Posture:
A bit bent, perhaps because he's so easy to bow to people in social ranking above him.

Identifying marks:
His big flappy ears
His enormous long white beard
His thin, frail and tall body


Appearance:
You see him walking through a noble's hall, a very tall man, but as slim and lean as a twig. His arms and legs are like sticks, his hands folded in front of his chest. His skin pale, its texture like parchment. His beard white, the hairs thin of age, so long that it would reach the ground if the tip didn't curl up an inch above his feet. The sight of him makes you wonder how he's still alive.
He looks like a guy that could sit in one spot in the library for a month, gathering dust, writing and reading, as if time around him goes slower.

Relations:


Revered:
Nwalme - blargtheawesome - "The emperor of vast lands. Powerful. Wealthy. Influential. It is a privilege, truly, to have met him. He holds vast knowledge which I hope to someday delve further into."

Respected:
Aelyth Fuvur - Elz - "The daughter of the Fuvurian emperor. A gentle polite woman, who has already relayed she will tell her father of my kindness to her. Perhaps one day I will meet this powerful honorable man."

Lothaire Dugald - Mitch - "Son of the famous Bane of the Dark. He is in service of the Fuvurian empire. A humble and polite man, I do hope to meet again."

King Rogerius Ricci - Blorbis83 - "Vescovo-Re of Veraci, he has offered me an important business deal and thus placed me close to his side. I will serve him best I can and hopefully through him get in touch with other nobles. The Fuvurian Empire perhaps?"


Befriended:
Who?

Liked:
Kethron - Heie - "A wealthy enchanter who has set up shop in Veraci. A polite man with a pleasant way of conversing."

Ventare Seymour - ShaolinPunk - "The prince of Sangria, son of Cymic, lord of Halbed. He has offered me a place as a librarian once.I do feel like the Seymours are more rough cut than I initially expected."

Paul Stonecipher - Kamaoe - "A rather wise man, objective, who also seems to search truth rather than an easy way to make sense of the world. I am almost sure he does have some agenda he is not willing to enclose just yet, however. I can respect him for that."


Neutral:
Evelyn - Lannis - "Another daughter of Nwalme, emperor of the Fuvurian claims. She is however a little more rough-cut in her vocabulary than her sister. Her arm, as I got told, is an avatar of an entire mountain. Or.. something like that."

Disfavored:
Calder - Scardrac - "The man fought in Veraci's ballroom and spit on the carpet at his adversary, what a barbarian!"

Podric - Luam - "The lightbringer's reputation precedes him, but he is of a rough cut. Lacking the skill of conversing and apparently born in the /slums/."

Feared:
Who?

Unsure of:
Jackdaw - ToastySpam - "adorned in golden jewelry and an ornate eye-patch, yet his tongue is as rough as an oak's bark."

Gerry - Jeroxia - "He's a jolly lad and his dance was very amusing, but he too seems to be rough around the edges and a bit too energetic for me to comprehend."


Of Business:
Lavendula - Cukie1 - "Her shop is wonderful and our deals so far have been mutual beneficial I'm sure."

Asero Crow - Electric - "Replies and supplies on short notice, great traits for trade."

Julianne Vhalakis - Purgatoris - "We've had extensive trades, I am very pleased to meet her face to face at her festival"

Julian Mercante - Antilogy - "Another shipping company, perhaps ours can learn a thing or two from these veterans."

Ventare Seymour - Shao - "The armor he supplies is magnificent, great quality, but cheaper than Dwarven contacts."

Melarue Lydril - Elz - "She was able to supply exactly what items I needed. Apothecaries are wonderful things."


Forgotten:
Laisa - Samiwashere - "A clever girl, very much so. She is young and would under some guidance be able to become quite the academic, I'm sure. She was brought up by a certain 'Leo'; by the sound of it a very knowledgeable man."
Verasar - Lavilethorn - "What an intelligent fellow. He is researching the heaven-rocks that have fallen to Altera. I met him as he was writing a piece on theories and experiments regarding these fallen star's rocks."


Of places:
- Storm's Landing -
"The hub of the world, it would seem! An impressive cathedral, a lovely tavern, but too many steps for an old man to walk up and down on!"
- Sanardu -
"I had to stay over to wait for the boat to Halbed and happened across a cozy place called the Leviathan's Den. I hadn't expected the ladies downstairs and almost got a heart-attack! Otherwise, the town is lovely and warm, good for my old cold bones."
- Halbed -
"A very very cold town. Indeed king Cymic chooses his capital city in an inhospitable environment. I may hope the library will have enough hearths to heat the place up, or I might freeze onto my chair!"
- Compendium -
"What a place, I shall have to see if I can contact someone to allow me access to their great library."

Timeline:
  • Arrives in the new continent. At Storm's Landing's Tavern he hears of research on falling stars. Immediately interested, he goes up to the Cathedral to do his own research. There is no star there, but there is Ventare Seymour who offers him a job as librarian and scholar at the Sangrian court, which he gracefully accepts. He heads out to Halbed.
  • After staying in Halbed for a while, he finds he was lead there under false promises. The North is cold and the people seem all but absent. A bit taken aback, but not entirely disappointed, he returns to Storm's Landing until he crosses paths with a man named Fronslin who takes him to the headquarters of what he calls 'The Guardians'.
  • Lazarus is told that The Guardians are protectors of Altera and have much that needs archiving. But they seem very stagnant too. While being promised to meet a mechanical elemental named Vorar, he catches no sight of him within a full week. Again, Lazarus returns to Storm's Landing, little wiser but all the more tired.
  • In Storm's Landing, Lazarus runs into a man who goes by the name of Jonas. He, like so many before him, promises Lazarus a respectable job of plenty pay. Lazarus has now learnt to be skeptical, but soon finds this person is true to his word. He takes Lazarus to Veraci, where Lazarus settles in a respectable administration office of a large shipping company by the name of GSC.
  • Weeks of trade, correspondence, and business visits go by, and Lazarus starts to feel quite satisfied. He's a respected business man now and has acquired enough funds to buy himself a large house -or small mansion- in the amazing town of Veraci. Now, finally, he has got the means to start his personal passion; learn all that he can about all the Gods that are known to mankind. He now tries to enter Compendium's atheneum to learn more from the books therein. But first, he'll need a contact with the key to that locked door...
  • With the Compendium still locked tight and no signs of it opening soon, Lazarus put his mind to more current matters. Putting the pieces together, he found out that a Godly relic; "A tear of Skraag" was hidden somewhere in The Sorrowlands. Taking a party to protect him, he retrieved the relic and intends to bring it to shrines of other Gods to start to understand how they are related to one-another.

Few updates already including three relations.

I think it's very important to have some key-aspects so I get to RP this guy right. His key-aspects are:
- Always very inquisitive and looking for the truth in things ranging from a speck of dust to the very stars falling on our heads.
- Always very formal and abiding by the conservative rules of dealing with people of different standing.
- Always very friendly and emphatic to those around him.
