Personality


Personality:

Kamal, unlike traditional Warlord Princes, embraces his nature fully without restraint. The predator king, the alpha, the domination and the power. To be a victim of his rut should be an honor and not scoffed against, so to should the woman be given proper respect for her submission. To be killed when he rises to the Killing Edge is an honor and honor those who fall to it. A noble savage, Kamal comes off as a very regal being who bleeds emotion, oftentimes people can tell the mood he is in simply by standing near him. Like how anyone can sense another who is sad or depressed or angry, this too applies to Kamal. As a result Kamal often does not mingle or freely interact with other Blood on a day to day basis. Due to the predator's taint Blood are far more likely to be afraid of him than want to chat with him, especially Warlord Princes who are unprepared for his arrival. This makes him more prone to spending time with Landen who can neither sense the predator's taint and act upon it. That suits him fine. Most Blood ignore the Landen and his hobbies often put him in their vicinity anyhow. Kamal is like coffee to Blood. He is an acquired taste.

Kamal was given a warrior's upbringing. He is proficient in several brands of weaponry, is a proficient hunter of game (human or animal) and enjoys the hunt. The thrill of the chase, the euphoria of catching the prey unawares and swiftly killing them. When it comes to social matters he isn't bad but could use some work, especially given the same description above outlines his social patterns as well. Protocol is very important to Kamal, as his nature makes clear to him it's importance. He is respectful to those lesser than he where appropriate and defers to his betters. Those who are under his charge he takes very seriously in matters of their protection as they are his to protect. No one else's. 

Likes:
  • Odelle. Beyond the heart-bond, Odelle's presence soothes him and for some reason she makes it easier to interact with others. More than that though, he feels for her like the sister he lost to Glacia so many years ago. Mother Night is Kind.
  • The Outdoors. Hiking, camping, being away from the habub of the city, Court and other trivialities and simply existing in Mother Night's greatest creation is a splendor Kamal will never understand why people don't take more advantage of.
  • You're never going to believe it. Weakness. Weakness to Kamal is beautiful, not a flaw to be discarded. Kamal has weaknesses, he simply hides them well and shares them with no one. To expose one's weakness to another is the truest form of intimacy, especially when it's freely offered. The thrill of finding them in others gives Kamal great pleasure.

    Dislikes:
  • The Predator's Taint. Not specifically a thing, it is a term used to describe Kamal's "vibe". The thing that makes Blood a touch straight-backed around him, closed mouthed and prone to walking on egg-shells. It isn't so much he doesn't like having it, as all predators can be sensed but he hates it was does to others. He isn't a beast! He is Blood like any other so why run away? Go elsewhere or try to hide? Blood not used to Kamal's presence tend to suffer it the most, resorting to Kamal staying close to the Court or, when needing to socialize, does so among the Landen of Rockland.
  • Acknowledging his Failures. Kamal isn't perfect. He will even tell you. But he will never. EVER. Tell you why. Kamal is a mysterious figure for just this reason. He is the regal sentry of Rockland's Queen and those of her Court. The force of nature that scares just as many courtiers as he reminds them they are safe at night or elsewhere. The less they know the more imposing he becomes, the more power he gains and the more he can both do his job and revel in it. To acknowledge his failures betrays the image.
  • Disrespect. Kamal is a stickler for Protocol because as one who has embraced his nature he understands the nuance of Protocol better than most. It truly does mitigate so many of the issues that would keep the Blood from slaughtering one another. Among them is basic human decency and respect. He may be a higher breed than most Blood but that doesn't give him the right to gloat. Instead cultivate those who look up to you, protect those who offer themselves in exchange for your protection. Should any seek to provoke you, or spit on protocol through disrespect do not deserve their place among the Blood...and should be drained of it.

    Fears:
  • Isolation. To be the, in Kamal's view, the penultimate Caste of the Blood carries a terrible price. As, to Kamal's view, the Blood are entirely inept when it comes to Protocol they scurry behind walls and back into their homes like rats seeing a hawk in the sky rather than obey the standards set forth to talk to him. While he has the landen his Dark Jewels is the obstacle to overcome in that area and apart from his Court, that is basically it. The worry that one day he will have no one because Mother Night blessed/cursed him with his Caste nags him whenever he sees the proverbial rats scurry away.
  • Being Unworthy. A Warlord Prince is the greatest of males both in power, respect and station. It doesn't matter how others perceive him or feel about him he must stand true to his calling. Otherwise he is unworthy of the caste and Mother Night's blessings.
  • Losing control of his image. A trick his father taught him, the projection of power is just as necessary as actually having it. Kamal's intensity comes off as being a dangerous figure -- useful when your job is to protect others from harm. Should his image falter? Those under his charge would be in danger. 

    Craft Strengths:
  • Seduction Craft: Kamal's seduction craft is not simply seduction. It's entrancement. His presence cannot be denied, the magnitude of his strength, his dignity and his grace is felt as much as seen. It draws you in. It makes you weak in the knees. It makes you want to submit to the sweet shadow behind his eyes. Give him your weaknesses, your body and mind...if only to make him smile...
  • Tracking Craft: The cultivated instincts of embracing his Caste resonates with this branch of Craft. Using anything from blood, footprints, to craft resonance or even smell, Kamal has the unnatural skill of tracking a quarry.

    Craft Weaknesses:
  • Physical Enhancement is an area of Craft Kamal has never really been able to grasp. It didn't help that he easily tossed those lessons aside anyway. Skill is just as important as magic and since Kamal can't augment his body like others can he will show them just how much that is true.
  • Death Spells frustrates Kamal. To kill someone is the ultimate intimacy. One of the strongest connections between two people is to have one cause the light to leave the others' eyes. Death Spells simply end life with about as much intimacy as farting.

    Life Story

    Family:
  • Mother ~ Indira Kapoor ~ Hearth Witch -- Tiger Eye to Summer Sky (d) (born 136 PP)
  • Father ~ Kadar Kapoor ~ Prince -- Tiger Eye to Summer Sky (d) (born 140 PP)
  • Sister ~ Sajili Kapoor ~ Black Widow -- Tiger Eye to Rose (In Glacia, Whereabouts Unknown) -- (born 160 PP)

    History:

    Rejoice. Kamal Kapoor was born in 158 PP among coutiers of a village court in Jharkand, Nharkava in the Queen's lower circles. His mother worked as a handmaiden to the Queen and his father worked as a forester to keep the peace. Two years later he was twice-blessed by being given a sister. The two were inseparable, Kamal playing with his sister almost as soon as he could walk and talk. When he received the Summer Sky he began to train with his father. Hunting and fighting and keeping tabs on the goings on in the village, as well as outside. He spent a lot of time with his father and grew to enjoy the outdoors. Sister was taken under the wing of the Court Seer to train in the Widow's arts.

    While it was tradition for Warlord Princes to study under a fellow Warlord Prince to better restrain their nature his father loved his son, loved spending time with him and wished to teach him of the world and it's splendor. As a Prince, Kamal learned to be a Warlord Prince through a Prince's perspective - control is power. Kamal grew into a perfectionist, self-critical in almost every way to the point of narcassism and only satisfied when he mastered whatever it was he was taught to study. The result, as Kamal matured in years, was not a Warlord Prince in control of himself but a Warlord Prince who embraced his nature to exert control instead.

    Kamal grew into a hunter and warrior preferring the outdoors and hunting life to one of courtly pursuits. The thrill of the chase, the glory of the kill, the thanks to Mother Night for sustenance became his primary hobby. He learned to skin game, cook, and make leathers of his kills. As he grew into his teenage years and settled into his nature was when...people, started to take notice. His presence snapped every woman's attention to him by the raw magnitude of his presence. Men either cowed or Warlord Princes would race him to the Killing Edge. The latter was especially true if no one knew he was coming, such is the fate of all Warlord Princes. 

    He emerged with his Green and was placed in charge of the village's foresters, keeping the lands surrounding the village safe. It suited Kamal well. He was out in the wilderness, living off the wildlife and honing his skills and had a chance to spar with other foresters to 'keep them on their toes and in shape'. The value of Protocol came into clear view with him, especially as he rose through the ranks. None were as Dark as he, and very few were his Caste among the other foresters. He learned to respect those who weren't and listen to those who weren't Dark.

    He had grown into an unrivaled hunter and fighter in his village who preferred to engage his enemies like the predators he hunted in the woods; unawares and with extreme prejudice when he got the jump on them. He learned to watch them, eyeing them from afar and gauging only to strike thereafter. Unfortunately, all of the gifts Mother Night blessed him with failed him when it came to the emergence of Glacia in Nharkava. It failed to protect his parents and it failed to prevent his sister from being taken to Glacia. The only thing Kamal could do was aid refugees and migrated south into Little Terreille.

    Kamal soon found that the price of his strength was the alienation of his newfound 'neighbors'. The refugees had learned to adapt to Kamal's sheer presence but Little Terreille? No. Because of this Kamal left the refugees when their safety was assured and resigned himself to the wilderness to hunt and train in preparation for his venture to Glacia, where he would retrieve his sister and bring her home. He became a consummate traveller and during one such trip he ran across Odelle Ackley who had come across a group of bandits. He was already fighting them off even before the Heartbond struck him. She was HIS Queen, and the predator always stakes it's claim.

    The relationship was rocky at first but the Heartbond proved to be the balm to taper Kamal's edges. When she took the position of Queen of Rockland he was the first member to join her Court as Master of the Guard. He isn't a forester anymore but his role is the same, and such blessings it is. His role lets him continue to master his skills and prowess for the time will come when Kamal retrieves his sister.

    Character in Play:

    **WARNING: Rape References/Violence In Sample.**

    It was a beautiful day for hunting. In the woods north of Rockland Kamal waited. Crouched, bow at the ready. His eyes, shimmering in the minute sunlight that broke through the trees focused on the doe idly grazing on the grass twenty yards ahead of him. He slowly raised his bow and arrow, eyeing his quarry with razor-tight anticipation. He licked his lips as he pulled back the drawstring in silence.

    A scream echoed in his ears and the doe shot up it's head and raced off. The distraction made Kamal curse under his breath and half want to break his bow! He HAD the fucking doe! Who fucked with his kill?? He gritted his teeth and vanished the bow as a scream echoed again. He stalked through the treeline, moving in silence as he skipped and ran through the treeline toward where the ruckus was coming from.

    He landed far from a gaggle of men who had dragged two women into the wood. The women were being held down by Craft, the men having the eyes of predators. False Predators. He thought. Rape disgusted Kamal. Women should as wet as a river before you take them. It makes the claim so much the sweeter when the woman revels with you, rather than against you. Rape was for the weak. The impotent who could not get laid on their own virtue.

    They deserved to die.

    He slowly revealed his bow and knocked it. Waiting as the boys giggled themselves to death as they unfastened their drawers. Their drawers hit the ground and Kamal smiled. Showtime.

    The arrow flew fast and true and hit one of the men's spear with such force that it ripped off of his person. He howled in pain as the other men turned to see Kamal, grew wide-eyed, and scambled for their pants to the point they were falling on themselves. Kamal sneered and revealed his Nharkavan blade, smelled their fear and saw their moment of weakness and closed the distance. By the time the males could get their pants up and weapons drawn it was over. He impaled one through the throat, the other in the stomach and headbutted the third which gave him time to kick off the body from his blade and kill him too.

    Blood splattered on his face with each kill. The smell of rusted copper made his nerves sing a hymn. He licked his lips, tasting his kill and practically shuddered. He stabbed them again to make sure they were dead before he turned to look at the women.

    The death of the males broke the spell that kept them bound and they quickly rose to their feet, never losing the fearful eyes of prey they had when victimized by the males. They tried to speak but could not say anything.

    Kamal spoke for them. With blood-laced lips his voice was firm as he said. "Ladies. I am Prince Kamal Kapoor. Master of the Guard of Rockland." He vanished his sword after wiping it on one of the corpses. "You have nothing to fear, you are under my protection. Allow me the honor of escorting you home, meanwhile tell me what happened that put you in this predicament."

    His words were compelled by his presence. The subtle touch of his power, letting it taint the area with his presence that made the women go from fear-striken to focused on him. To pursing their lips as their thoughts raced. He could practically hear their elevated heartbeats, the subtle pulse at their throat caught his eye.

    "Please. After you, Ladies." He gestured with a hand. "I would feel more comfortable knowing that you made it home safely."

    It took the two ladies several moments to consider, look at each other and practically stride past him. He smiled, eyeing them as they passed, and then turned to escort them home.
