Ties that Bind

Albant and his sister Adalie held their breathes. Within the cramped, dirty confines of their home, the pair hid. Creaking across the rotted wooden floor, the labored breathing of their mother broke the silence. The woman was sick - even at Albant's tender age, he knew something was wrong. Ever since their father had left to fight in the Dragonsong war, their mother had become increasingly withdrawn and erratic. Sometimes she wouldn't speak for days, muttering to herself and glancing to her two children as if trying to remember who they were. Other nights - like tonight - she was wild, prattling, crazed. Albant's nightmares differed little from nights like these. The two hunkered down behind a smashed cabinet, peering out into the dimly lit room. Their mother, clad in her dirtied night gown, swung a candle around wildly, as if trying to drive off some unknown terror hiding in her periphery vision. Out, damn you, she'd yell. Albant remembered it well - her voice raspy and desperate, a far cry from the gentle, soft sound he remembered from his early childhood.


Adalie shivered next to him and he continued to hold her close, hiding her from the monster that used to be their mother. Raina Varrilaux wept openly, her sobs dry and sorrowful. Slumped to her knees, the candle the woman had been clutching dropped to the ground, leaving a small trail of fire in its wake as it rolled a few paces away. Albant's heart froze as the flames started to gain traction and his mother's sickly gaze centered on his own terrified one. Time seemed to stand still as she simply stared at him, her putrid, terrified eyes wide and devoid of any real emotion beyond madness.


"Sweet Al. Come to mother. Come now."


Her bony hand stretched out towards the two as the drapes near the other end of the room finally lit up, showering the room in an orange glow. For a split second, the kindly and gentle mother Albant remembered returned, only to be eclipsed by whatever hideous, hateful creature had taken her place. Clutching Adalie, Al burst from his hiding place, fleeing as his mother screamed in a way Albant had never heard before. Adalie reached in vein for their mother, but the flames had already reached her. Dropping her favorite toy - a plush rabbit Albant had stolen for her - the younger girl's cries eclipsed those of her mother. The rabbit's once-white fur sizzled black, the lifeless eyes reflecting the flames that were now positively roaring, claiming the timbers of Albant's only home as their own. Tears stung his eyes as his sister wailed, the pair of them kicking up snow as they fled deeper into the Brume, the darkness held at bay by the ever-growing fire.

General Appearance


Varril1.png
Albant has a moody appearance about himself, more often than not. His dark hair and fair skin lend him a vaguely sickly appearance, yet his eyes are alert and almost piercing in their depth. As an Elezen, he's quite tall and though he's seen his fair share of physical activity his body is more toned than musclebound. His hair is often slicked back for the sake of neatness though sometimes he'll simply tie it up in a ponytail. His face is gaunt - thin lips, pointed nose, shallow facial features. His gaze is sharp and surprisingly keen, as are his movements. His gait is calm and smooth when at rest and precise and accurate when not - every movement he makes is distinct in one way or another.
Noticeable Features:
Cautious Eyes - Albant's gaze is unwavering. His hazel eyes add to his strangely severe stare.
Small Smile - Albant usually has a small smile tugging at the corner of his lips. Amused at a private joke, perhaps.
Haunted - Judging from his appearance, Albant likely doesn't get much restful sleep.

General Personality

Albant is a rather serious individual. When discussing business or important topics, he keeps things simple and succinct - though he may use flowery words in his speech, he keeps things blunt, preferring to discuss problems out in the open. He's the type of individual to bide his time, butting in when he has something of value to contribute. His patient and cautious nature are a boon to his work and sometimes a liability, depending on the job.


A childhood in the Brume ensured Albant grew up quickly. Food was scarce, crime was commonplace. With the burdens of the Dragonsong War adding to young Albant's troubles, his early life was not an easy one. Mainly due to his upbringing (and the events thereafter) Albant has a dreary, pessimistic view of the world at large, though he is actively trying to discard that philosophy for something a bit more hopeful. He finds altruism naive and as such particularly enjoys the 'do a job, get paid' lifestyle of the adventuring mercenary.


At his best, Albant is thoughtful and kind, ready to support his allies steadfastly from a position of careful consideration.


At his worst, Albant is exceedingly arrogant, hateful and violent.


In general, these qualities manifest themselves equally.

L I K E S

Dueling / Sparring A favorite hobby of Albant. Seeking out challenging foes to cross swords with has been a particular quirk of Albant's since his Temple Knight days.
Wealth Albant is shameless about his lust for wealth. Coming from nothing, he wants everything. Though, perhaps his reasons aren't as selfish as they seem..
Adalie Dearest sister.

D I S L I K E S

Water A childhood accident involving a frozen lake has ensured Albant's general fear of large bodies of water. Swimming is okay. Sometimes.
Germs / Filth Albant has a healthy dislike for germs and clutter in all forms. His specialized pair of gloves (a gift from his sister) are never far from his reach.

H O B B I E S

Whittling A harmless hobby taught to him by an old friend. He typically creates birds of various types.
Reading. Particularly interested in history. Mostly the bits about war, though.

S T R E N G T H S

Combat. Albant is an accomplished fighter - brawling in the street during his youth, fighting in formation against Dravanians in his teens and finally fighting various monsters and ne'er-do-wells while adventuring as an adult.
Perceptive Albant has a knack for noticing the little things. A subtle gesture, a quick glance away - sometimes these things tell him more than words ever could.

W E A K N E S S E S

Arrogant. Rather arrogant.
Easily Provoked Though he's often calm and collected, a few mocking words or doing something to make him feel humiliated or lesser will surely get his blood flowing.
Memories His mother is a particular soft spot in terms of trauma. There are also some events during his time fighting in the Dragonsong War he'd rather forget.


M O T I V A T I O N S

Adalie Albant's main reason for adventuring and contract work is to support his comatose sister. The events leading up to his sister's current status are a heavily guarded secret - one Albant would only share with his most trusted allies.
