    Appearance


    Play By: Kevin Zeger
    Distinguishing Features: Rorie is a confident man, not prone to fanatical bouts of emotions, and his demeanor often exhibits confidence and professionalism. Dark hair and eyes, his features fit him well with the rest of the Doyle clan.

    Personality


    Personality:

      The eldest male of the Doyle Clan, Rorie's personality could easily be summed up as Mature. The eldest male of two rather large family clan's, Rorie has an almost fatherly-like personality. Often filled with sage advice and help, he has also been known to discipline when the situation calls for it. He is not always easy on his brothers, holding them to a high standard, and it is often a look of disappointment or disapproval will bring about arguments between any of the other boys. Arguments easily made up after a few tension relieving pranks, spars or shared hangover looks in the morning. They were brothers, and Rorie would have a hard time treating them with anything less then the love he had for them.

      Keeping an eye on the larger picture, Rorie tends to be slow to anger and usually is capable of sorting through about a bazillion versions of one story and learning the truth -or at least the best guessed version of the truth. While Rorie is capable of deflection and charm, he hates the idea of lying and finds telling a straight out-lie exactly like admitting to the very thing he would be at fault for.

      While he does have a soft spot for the women in his life, he finds them just as confusing. What he found even harder was relying on them after the breaking of Ciaran and abduction of Honora. Maeve was often a person he would vent to as was Ciaran, but Rorie had become more recluse and only allowing others to rely on him and to not add to the burden of others; especially the women. He needed to be the strong one this time and if Brogan was too busy chasing Loreniel’s tail than the responsibility of the keep fell primarily into his hands. With new rules, Rorie was not about to see another member of his family hurt.

    Likes:
    • Strategy Games: He enjoys a good chess match, or any form of its equivalent. Challenging both himself and his opponent with a variety of tactics. He is one of the few that enjoys challenging rival opponents to test their own strategies along with misleading them with his own.
    • Playful Pranks: Riordan would catch him with a few, and so long as it did not take the attention away from the defense of the Keep and Territory, Rorie has been known to return them with rather unfortunate precision. Unlike his brothers, Rorie knew how to wait.
    • Scelt: Killian Keep and all that surrounds it, Rorie loves its history and the peace it brings him. Each step an adventure and growing up he wanted to explore it all. Now older, he still secretly holds those small-boy dreams.
    Dislikes:
    • Useless: If there is one thing that sits poorly with Rorie it is finding himself useless.
    • War: A waste of time, resources and all that political drama.
    • Politics: He may find himself learned to the art of politics but he is not fond of it. Baring a burden for the words and games, Rorie tries to keep as much of it to strategy. Its a continuous like-dislike circle that could go either way.
    Fears:
    • Loss: The concept of losing more of his family frightens him.
    • Broken: Ciaran broken was a hard blow to take and he watches his younger brother with a broken heart, fearing that one day it may happen to him if he isn't strong enough to protect what matters most.
    • Failure: Rorie has committed to his job as Master of the Guard, and the cause of his Queen. Failure means more than just the death of her, his family but he believes the end of a potentially peaceful Scelt. Failure for him could have no higher cost.
    Craft Strengths:
    • Battle Craft: Unlike his brother(s), Rorie takes battle and its components very seriously. It was not a skill that came easily to him but Rorie trained with an intensity that makes his Jewel Rank very formidable.
    • Communication: Like his older sister, Rorie finds it easy to communicate on physic threads in any situation at any time. This is found to be immensely useful in his position as MotG.
    Craft Weaknesses:
    • Hearth Craft: He did not gain any skills from the kitchen, too busy stealing pies and sweet cakes to bother learning to make such things.
    • Seduction: Rorie is a clumsy bedfellow. Not that he would admit to his brothers who seem to believe that Rorie must have the pick of the women. Thankfully they have not caught on that Rorie is married to his work in more ways than one.
    Life Story

    Family:
    Mother: Fiona Doyle//Summer Sky to Opal Healer (Deceased)
    Father: Devin Doyle//Yellow to Summer Sky Prince (Deceased)
    Siblings:
    • Maeve Doyle // Purple Dusk to Blood Opal Healer [36]
    • Ciaran Doyle//Broken White to Rose Prince [30]
    • Riordan Doyle//Rose to Purple Dusk Warlord [27]
    • Siona Doyle//Yellow to Summer Sky witch, Healer-in-training [23]


      History:

        The eldest male of the Doyle Clan, Rorie grew up with a watchful older sister and a best friend for a younger brother. The world was theirs and Rorie was very much the typical dirty boy who minded his mother and siblings while charming many of the local wives with flowers for sweets and tormenting the girls with frogs. Him and Ciaran were inseparable for most of their younger years, getting caught up in Ciaran's latest idea and Rorie shamelessly taking most of the blame for the falls although the fault usually was Ciaran's. He was the very picture of protective older brother. Not that Maeve was shy of reminding him that she was still the oldest.

        He did well in his studies, albeit at times found his focus wandering to do more than read books. Taught more than the value of life but the wholeness of the body, Rorie easily descended to the Opal that was only a little lighter than his sisters. Once again she was older and stronger -she would say, but Rorie was satisfied with the Blessing of the Darkness and started training to utilizes his strengths to the best that he could. With the ever extending family and the adopted family, Rorie worked hard to be stronger to provide and protect. Rorie matured quickly, and while at times he envied the youth he also took to heart that he had a blessed childhood and that it had its own time and place. People must grow up sometime.

        Unfortunately, the circumstances of change and maturity do not always occur in ways that are most desirable. Devastated by the news that surrounded Honora and Ciaran, Rorie watched his entire family turn upside down and start to fall apart at the seems. Hating himself for not pushing the issue of a stronger guard to protect both Honora and Ciaran, Rorie watches with a sense of uselessness as Ciaran falls apart and now losing what spark of life his brother and childhood best friend always had. Having depend on Ciaran in so many ways Rorie is now starting to look a little more outward at his Guards and among the First Circle for confidants and friendship. Doing all that he can to seek out information as to how and why the event occurs, Rorie has taken to brooding in silence and keeping a public face of strength only to help keep his family together.

        And he would keep this family together!

      Recent History:

        The loss of his parents was hard on Rorie. He was neither eldest or youngest of his family it hit him hard as the eldest male, kicking into gear his protective nature in nearly a smothering sort of way. At least for the first few months following. Rorie had always had a deep love and respect for his parents and had missed them while he served in a court different from theirs. They had been proud of their children, all of them, and now Rorie, as Master of the Guard, felt a doubled weight on protecting his siblings and those that they loved. Life lost, Rorie tried his hardest to move on.

        War took its toll on the lands and the people. The worst part about it was the paperwork, or so Rorie convinced himself while trying not to let the lives of those involved and now lost not bother him. Instead, taking the following years, Rorie started to build. He build guards, companies and trained those that wished for nothing more to serve and keep their clans safe.

        With the added exile of the Sheane clan came the letters. First the ones going out, and then the ones coming in. Again, paperwork and Rorie spent more time buried under it then he swore the position would have otherwise given him. He loved Loreniel, but she did make his job rather hard.  To escape it from time to time, he traveled with a few good men to greet all the Clans and ensure some semblence of peace in the fall of the Shaene Court.

        In his travels he heard horrible and dangerous rumors, ones that he wanted to research more, deeper. Secrets and deception would be the death of him, he was sure! Home and away, Rorie looked for clues, but he was no Steward and Kean was keeping as much to himself as he shared, and he had to focus on his work, and the protection of those in his care. Unfortunately it now held the Territory and that was a lot more paperwork still.

        Maybe he just needed a date.


      Show Us What You've Got


      Writing Sample:

        The tension in the Killian Keep was damn near critical when the escort to Shaene returned with the hurt Queen. Barking out orders in rapid succession, Rorie had Honora sent straight away to the infirmary and Brogan off to spar someone to relieve all the tension that Rorie could feel seeping through his aura. The rest were split between those used for the search party and those that were sent to deliver messages. Rest and informing the Territory the Queen was home safe. It was important, and while it was recommended that he too get some sleep, Rorie was not yet ready to.

        What surprised him the most was Riordan’s attention to the Infirmary and having everything ready for the worst case scenario. Pacing back and forth, he could see the look of exhausted worry in his brothers eyes and while Rorie was sure that Riordan wanted information, confirmation, SOMETHING to trigger that need to just hit something and Rorie couldn’t give it to him. Just shaking his head, Rorie headed to his office to write up a report of as much detail as he could remember so he could reference it later. Loreniel was busy attending Honora, no doubt coddling her as only a woman could.

        Quill and paper, Rorie poured out the events in sequence, taking care of noting Jewels and the names associated with them; listing places and times. Pages filled before being done, he read over the report again, taking notes of anything that he may have missed during the first initial write up and then set it to the side. A hand through his hair and a sigh on his lips, Rorie could only start to feel a little of the tension ease away. Honora was safe. She was home with family and will recover in time. Ciaran. The tension returned with the name. He had returned completely broken and Rorie did not have the first clue how to approach him. How could he? Rorie had never been broken before, and Mother Night protect that he never would. It was a conundrum, an deep sadness. In the confines of his private office, Rorie wept for his brother.

      Petitions (if any): 

      Why did this character became inactive? I left the site. :/

      What will you do to prevent this character from becoming inactive again? I'm hoping the lack of PPD and renewing old plots and getting involved in new ones.

      What are your plans for this character? Romance, plot, drama. Reconnecting with some of my favorites of the favorites.

      Number of previous Reactivation: Not sure, it's been 2~ish years.

      Changes Made to Application for Reactivation Process (if any) : See "Recent History" and anything colored in Opal.

      Congratulations

      Rorie Doyle has been blessed with Advanced Combat Craft.

      Advanced is indicative of a skill that surpasses the normal capabilities of someone with that Jewel rank.

      I had forgotten about this, as it was not part of the previous sheets but in the commentary. Can this still apply to the character?
