* Plot Information for Dharo

The intrigue that drives, and plagues, the Territory of Dharo has built and destroyed empires throughout the Territory; and everyone is eager for political power. The reign of Rheava Evesham has been challenged by these power struggles and even more so by the undercutting of power in her Court.

Appearance

Play By: Miles Frank
Distinguishing Features: Nasir is not at all the traditional Dharoan in appearance, instead a throwback to his mixed Dena Nehelian ancestry. With dark eyes the color of whiskey (or hazel, if you prefer), dark curly hair, and a strong jawline, he could fit the stereotype of tall, dark, and handsome (even if he's only five foot eleven).

Personality


Personality:
    Not a cold individual, Nasir is full of warmth and smiles. Passion rules him and the desire to enjoy life and everything that comes with it runs strong within. This is something that is only enhanced by his caste making him particularly vivacious once he gets going. He has a strong sense of right and wrong - though it is his right and wrong not yours - as well as a desire to look after and care for those that are considered his.

    Many will find themselves drawn towards him, even those who are strangers, because of his natural charisma and friendliness. One would not even necessarily assume that he is a Warlord Prince, as laid back as he can be, until his temper rears it’s head (or if you read his psychic scent). As generous and as kind as he is, he gets just as angry and will ride that edge for longer than expected. When he is like this he is singularly focused, pushing to either dispose of whatever caused the anger or work until the problem is solved, sometimes to the detriment of himself and others around him.

    Despite his friendliness, Nasir is not actually an open book. The details he shares about himself are ones that are superficial, known to any and all as common knowledge. It’s not your business to know who he is (and he’s well aware that anything could be used against him), let alone about anything else related to him. Secrets are held near and dear to him, kept tightly guarded and only shared with the most trusted individuals.

    For the person that is kept close they will discover a quiet, intelligent and, passionate man who - for all his ability to navigate groups and crowds - does better in one on one situations. In larger groups it is easy to get overwhelmed, to lose himself, but that is not so when he is focused on one person. In such a situation he is easily able to open up and share, even if such a person is rare, and no longer so concerned about keeping up appearances or being anything other than himself.

Likes:
  • The City - Growing up in the forested countryside with nothing around for great distances, Nasir is very fond of the hustle and bustle of the larger cities. There’s always something going on, always something that can be discovered or learned, and that is so much better than his place of birth.
  • Strategy - With a quick mind for numbers and mathematics, Nasir enjoys putting that to use towards strategy. Whether this is against another group, a singular person or a situation, he uses a combination of knowledge and instinctive understanding to put together strategies to handle any problem that comes before him with gusto.
  • Cooking - It’s out of place but Nasir will not deny that he enjoys cooking. Within his family it is a shared experience, everyone coming together to help pitch in, and different from other aristo families (who use cooks and servants to handle such things). As he’s gotten older he’s not had as much time in the kitchen as he might like - especially since it’s relaxing - but some of his fondest memories of childhood are of being in the kitchen with both his mother and father.
Dislikes:
  • Being Looked Down Upon - There’s something of an assumption that if one is from the forests of Wartonshire that one might be backwater. Nasir is far from the case and does not take kindly to anyone who looks down upon him because of where he is from. For that matter, he doesn’t take kindly to anyone who decides to look down upon someone for any reason.
  • Horses - As much as his life has revolved around horses, Nasir has a healthy dislike of them. If he could never see another one again, that would be grand. If he could also just forget all the knowledge he has of them, that would be great too. He spent a great deal of time of making sure his clothing, belonging, and person did not reek of horses once he made it to Northwood ...
  • Solitude - For him there is nothing worse than silence and being alone. Being raised in a large family group he’s never had a moment to himself and while he would like to deal with less people (fonder of one on one meetings), the idea of being alone is not one that he finds appealing in the slightest.
Fears:
  • Fire / Witchfire - A fire, of unknown means to Nasir, razed a portion of the family stables to the ground, took the life of his father, and left his mother horribly scarred even after a Healer was able to see to her. Nasir’s memories of the event are nothing more than the memory of heat and anger and - above all else - fear.
  • Being Forgotten - There’s always someone in a Vasile generation that stands out. In the previous one that was his father and for his generation there isn’t one yet. Except that there’s so many cousins and relatives that were he not his father’s son, he would have likely fallen to the background even with his caste already. Nasir wants to make something of himself, be more than just another Vasile, because to be forgotten is as bad as not existing. Oblivion is an unacceptable fate when he is capable of so much more.
  • Being Too Weak - He is more than aware that there are those that would think him Prince not Warlord Prince and those that also think he is lacking in the strength and capability of his caste as well. While this is far from the case, there’s little he can do to stop the misconception other than push himself to train and train and train. When the time comes he wishes to be as strong a man as his father, capable of protecting and looking after his family.
Craft Strengths:
  • Empathic Craft - For all the fervor and passion that he is capable of as a Warlord Prince, Nasir also seems to come with an instinctive understanding of that same fervor and passion in others. He finds himself able to feel and understand the feelings of others far better than his own at times. This makes him something of an excellent confidant and advisor, able to discern and pick apart the moods of those around. The downside is that he tends to feel these things too sharply in himself and strong moods can negatively impact his own if he is not careful.
  • Incite Rage - Instinctively understanding emotions puts him in an excellent position to fan and fuel the rage of others around him as well as share his own. Nasir is more than capable enough of inciting rage in most individuals, driving them to a frenzied state and turning an otherwise calm group of males into a dangerous fighting machine if the need arises.
Craft Weaknesses:
  • Phasing through Objects - In short it is often better that Nasir simply breaks through something physically or with craft than trying to phase himself through it. Something always seems to go awry whenever he tries it himself, be it his clothing gets caught or worse. He’s not inclined - in the slightest - to try this particular method anymore.
  • Witchfire - It does not seem to matter how much he wants to summon or make use of witchfire, Nasir is not at all capable of calling forth that which killed his father and greatly scarred his mother.

(and a bunch of cousins other relatives, and extended relatives not listed)

History:
    Nasir is one of many Vasile, a family that was once a large and nomadic group of Dena Nehele that moved to Dharo sometime before the Purge. They live within the forests of Wartonshire, training and boarding horses upon their family land. It is said that if you want a horse that will always listen to you, that is impeccably trained, then you want one that was trained by a Vasile. They also offer a variety of training courses for those who have the ability to pay for them as they don’t come cheap.

    For all their reputation for being a foremost authority on the training and maintenance of horses, there’s also the rumors about the Vasile family. After all: they live in the forests and they weren’t always aristos (having gained their Viscount title in helping in the aftermath of the Purge, providing forces and a handful of leaders to the cause of taking back from the Landen) and there are those that say they follow the old way of things; that they’re backwater and unintelligent. This is far from the case but it does not stop the whispers.

    Whispers that have only gotten worse since the death of his father Balfour. Once there was sometimes squabbling over where a Vasile would serve but now, with their neutral position they’ve taken up, they’ve been pushed back into the shadows and that is something that cannot continue (as far as Nasir is concerned).

    It started eighteen years ago, though Nasir was born eleven years before that. The first Warlord Prince born to the family in some time he was a treasure to both his parents and they had high expectations of him (after all they named him Nasir, hoping he would live up to the meaning of his name: victorious). For all of the volatility of his caste, he was a kind and caring child, always looking after others whether they liked it or not.

    His Birthright ceremony was held by his own grandmother Melina, as all Vasile born on their land were handle by a Priestess of their own family. With an uncut Tiger’s Eye, Nasir spent most of his time looking after the horses when he was not following after his father as he was the first Patriarch of the family in some time. Normally it went to the eldest female but as the eldest child of the eldest child, it had fallen to Balfour when his mother had made a decision to step down and relax.

    Things changed not long after his eleventh birthday when a fire razed through the stables. Nasir does not remember much of it other than being trapped within and the heat of the fire. His father died in the process of trying to stop the fire after he was able to save him. Dorothea, his mother, was greatly burned in an attempt to save her husband.

    With a blow to their family - the loss of the family head - Melina took back up the mantle of family head until such a time that Nasir would take over (as he was the only child of the eldest). She began to call back the Vasile family, make them more of a neutral party, and only focused on the care and training of the horses for Dharo and the lessons they offered. Too young at the time to really understand, Nasir simply accepted that this was because they had to recover from the heavy loss of his father and a large amount of their horses. It also provided his mother time to recover as the Healers were able to save her but she was left heavily scarred.

    The truth of the matter is that it was not an attack upon the family but an attack upon Balfour Vasile. Part of the Dharo network of spies, he was the handler for Liam Devine and on that same day there was an attack upon the Devines. This is the real reason why Melina did what she did. She was able to maintain this, to keep Nasir in the dark along with most of the family, because he has blocked it all out. The only memories he has of the event is the heat of the fire and the fear, every other thing locked behind traumatic memory loss.

    In the aftermath of his father’s death, Nasir was pushed to do the best he could with his schooling. Told that his father would be proudest if he did so, he buckled down and took to his studies. The youth that emerged in the aftermath of his father’s death was wildly passionate and quite vocal about making sure people took care of themselves as well as looking after the family business as well.

    Except that looking after horses and making sure his family was not going to fade away was not good enough, not for a Warlord Prince. Despite his lack of satisfaction, Nasir continued on through his schooling and worked towards his Offering. Just as she had been there for his Birthright, his grandmother was there for that as well, and he walked away from it with an uncut Summer Sky - the same color as his father’s birthright - happier than ever.

    Nasir has spent the years since then pushing at his family, trying to make them see reason, but his grandmother has yet to relinquish hold as head of the family. It does not seem to matter how much knowledge he has, how capable he is, and that’s lead him to make the choice to simply take matters into his own hands.

    He more than aware that it is amazing that they’ve managed this long with staying neutral but it simply cannot continue. If the Vasile family is to continue, if it is to thrive, then they must actively be part of the courts once more. That they've been left to themselves for this long is something else altogether and soon enough they could have to answer for their neutrality.

    Having heard that there is a new Queen in Northwood, one that is in need of members of her Circle, he made a decision to go there. If words will not sway his family, perhaps action will.

Show Us What You've Got

Character in Play:
    Nasir had settled into his temporary lodgings until he arrived at Northwood Court. He was not entirely sure what would happen - Protocol and Etiquette were engraved into his very being; a safety net to fall back upon - but he knew one thing for certain: he would be joining the First Circle of Queen Darienn Comstock no matter what. Since his father’s death eighteen years ago there had not been any of his family that served at court. No, they had only provided horses and lessons and training to the various courts of Dharo and operated mostly as a neutral party.

    It was something that could not be allowed to continue, not if Nasir wanted to make sure that the family maintained its status and not become a target. Even if they were responsible for some of the best mounts that were available within Dharo, they would fade away to obscurity if they did not at least make a point to play a part within the courts.

    Or worse considering there was still power to the Vasile name (and it was not, by any means, a small family either).

    He knew something had shifted all those years ago after his father’s death that had changed things, made the Vasile family pull back, but that was a dark area in his mind and offered no answers. What mattered now was that he was going to make a change, to make sure their family did not simply wither away.

    First things first however …

    Looking himself over in the mirror, Nasir let out a sigh. Before he even thought about going to court he was going to start the process of making sure that the stink of horses and stables was not clinging to him, his clothing, or belongings. It was bad enough that there were those that considered him to be backwater but to actually smell like it?

    Unacceptable.
