Concept and Details:

The Keyes are part of the aristocracy and have been for a long, long time. The problem is that their family has never managed to make it into the upper echelon like Luceaus, Contas, Graveworthys who command respect but are barbarians or even the Mercers who came through the Dark Gate and claimed the same status in Dena Nehele as they did in Dharo. Charles is the heir, the eldest and only son, and he controls every aspect of the Keyes family. It is through him that the Keyes family has managed to rise up through the ranks of the aristocracy.

While they are still far away from the prestige afforded to those of the upper tiers, the Keyes name is nothing to dismiss. Holding land that stradles the border of Aechia and Tulzbruja, Charles enjoys the rise to power that he has cultivated. With ties to the Territory Court, there are few concerns about there being an issue of his power being questioned. Not that anyone is stupid enough to question a Red-Jeweled Warlord Prince.

Or rather some do. Charles does not fit the visual ideal of a Warlord Prince. He is thin, lanky, and not at all the muscle-bound moron that many seem to expect a Warlord Prince to be. He is cold, methodical, and absolutely dedicated to his purpose and ensuring all the plans and otherwise he pushes forward to come to fruition. It's this overall attitude, along with his jewels and character, that brought him to the attention of Mercianna Arcos. That and the fact that Charles is every inch the Warlord Prince when it gets down to it, capable of snapping and losing himself to his anger when things do not go as they are meant to. He is ever so quick to take care of a problem himself if someone fails or otherwise does not do as they should.

Still, they work together fabulously and Mercianna has - over the last few years - only encouraged Charles in his ambitions and goals. The old guard of the aristocracy need not hold on to their positions forever and it is time for them to let go and give rise to their betters.

Likes: power/domination/control, the hunt, knowledge/secrets
Dislikes: those that oppose him, the territory court, interruptions
Fears: a second decimation, something happening to mercinanna, loss of power
Craft Strengths: Hunter's Mark, Emotion Manipulation
Craft Weaknesses: Telekinetic Craft, Death Spells
