Zand al-Tarazed

The Basics

Character Name: Zand al-Tarazed
Nicknames:
Age and Birth Year: 85, b. 108 AP
Race: Partially Long Lived
Caste: Prince
Birth Territory: Pruul
Home Territory: Pruul

Birthright Jewel:Blood Opal
Offering Jewel: Red

Role: Librarian
Faction: Tarazed Tribe

Appearance

Play By: Uli Latukefu
Distinguishing Features: Zand’s towering height and broad, muscular build are the product of his Eyrien heritage, but dark eyes and the stubble of a beard mask his Long-Lived blood.

Personality


Personality:


Likes:
  • Order. Even more than most Princes, Zand thrives on organization, structure and control. His personal life is strictly scheduled and budgeted, and he relishes keeping the library’s collections precisely classified and catalogued.

  • Masuod. The Geiba-born Princeling captured Zand’s heart in a way no one else ever has. His former Tribe and the results of a traumatic brain injury mean most Pruulians would rather see the child given to the desert than given aid, but Zand sees the spark of their shared caste and a hunger for knowledge and learning. Zand and Zadi are perfectly positioned to raise a child like Masuod, and it gives Zand a chance to learn from the mistakes he made when Zadi was a child.

Dislikes:
  • Problems he can't fix. Zand has a compulsive drive to mend broken objects, correct inaccurate viewpoints and find ways around obstacles. Unfortunately, some damage cannot be repaired and some puzzles are unsolvable, but Zand will often continue battling them until he is frustrated, spiteful and exhausted.

  • (Something he himself does - Maybe when people don’t listen to what he says?)

Fears:
  • Being without a place. As a partially long-lived person in a mostly short-lived Territory, Zand has always known he would outlive most of the people around him. He has left his Tribe’s caravans to live with his Queen, and now his Clan tearing itself apart and his parentage makes him a target. The sense of stability he has cultivated in Onn feels more fleeting than ever.

  • Dying before Zadi. Zand is scared of losing his Queen and beloved, but he is as prepared as one can be for that. If he passes into the Darkness before her, though, he will be unable to protect and care for her, and he considers it one of the greatest potential failures of his service.

Craft Strengths:
  • Healing Tonics. Zadi’s mother taught Zand how to brew basic potions and teas to ease her daughter’s muscle spasms and chronic pain. He spent nearly a year afterwards hunting for books on the subject and badgering any Healer who would listen to him until he was satisfied with the efficacy of his tonics. He continues to hone his Craft and experiment with ingredients, even selectively breeding the herbs he grows to enhance their effects.
  • Mending objects. Zand spent most of his life in a Tarazed trade caravan, repairing and restoring artifacts and secondhand goods to fetch a higher price. He has since turned this skill towards keeping the library's collection in good condition, especially as it passes through hands that might not be as careful as he would prefer.

Craft Weaknesses:
  • Jewel Management. Zand spent his formative decades in the deep desert of Pruul, and his Craft training was intensive but sporadic. He rarely had reason to use more than a tiny fraction of his potential power, so there was little need or opportunity for him to practice efficiently regulating it.
  • Emotional Projection. Zand is a straightforward, guileless person. His mental state is easy for other Blood to read and he cannot deliberately change the feelings he projects or the emotional undertones of psychic communication.

OKAY.

*rubs hands together*

Bookkeeping time.
  • This character was in development before the moratorium on partially–Long Lived characters went into effect but the app went into cleanup.

  • I am using my banked Blood Opal to Red, rolled here with use marked here.

  • I am using an Extra Ratio Jewel Slot, also purchased here

  • Also, I'd like five family rolls.
Please and thank you for all of this!
