I think this'll about do it. Any changes I need to make, let me know. Name:
Heir of House GreyjoyAppearance:Attire:
Simple, loose fitting gray tunic and pantaloons, soft leather boots and gloves are his usual attire when he's not in armor. He also typically wears a red bandanna, and depending on the weather, a short cloak (comes down to his knees) that's dyed crimson. Armour:
Preferring to wear armor that allows him to stay mobile while offering protection, he makes use of leather lamellar armor.Weapon of Choice:
Lanse has shown a great deal of martial expertise, and he often carries a shortbow with him (and a quiver of arrows for it), as well as a broadsword.Personality:
Lanse has always been a wild child; he's difficult to control, choosing to march to the beat of his own drums, choosing to always do what he wants (though this often coincides with what others want, thankfully for his family). In addition to this, he tends to be quite carefree and boisterous. Perhaps because of a dangerous arrogance in his own skills, his usual response to the threat of danger is to laugh and tackle it head on.Ambitions:
lanse doesn't have grand ambitions. He just wants to enjoy his life, to live it the way he wants to.Virtue:
Can not abide bullying, although he noticeably has no issues with harassing people that are, themselves, bullies. Vice:
Women and wine, my friend, women and wine, the two best things in the world, are they not? And a good fight is great, too!Backstory:
While most would be overjoyed to be born into a ruling family and to be prepped for rulership themselves, Lanse has always hated this. A rebel at heat, as a child, he'd often throw off his stuffy clothes and tromp around the castle naked, unaware of just how upsetting that could be to others.
As a teenager, he often took to disappearing and going off "On an adventure!" When he should have been learning (although his teachers eventually learned that the best way to teach him was to humor him and do it by horse back, while riding around the Iron Isles).
At the very least, his father was glad to see that he was a competent warrior, as any Ironborn should be. In fact, he took to combat, both ranged and melee, quite eagerly, and the prospect of being able to duel with some of the strongest men in their army has often been incentive to make him toe the line (if only for a while), and act as a lordling should.
When he was about Twenty-two and adventuring around the North, he discovered a starving dire wolf pup. The mother had probably been killed, and the baby had been unable to hunt for himself yet. Taking pity on the animal, as he is known to do, he gave it water to drank, and meat to eat from his own supplies.
It would be a lie to say that Misericorde is tamed, however, Lanse seems to be able to keep it in control; having saved its life, it is fiercely loyal to him, and this, combined with his own strange abilities, makes it seem as if the two have a psychic bond.
He is in King's Landing at this time to honor his father's request and represent House Greyjoy (though it's mostly his adjutants helping him get things done). About the only reason he even wanted to go was because it had been one of the few places in the Kingdoms he hadn't explored yet.
...Besides, he's heard good things about the women there. And the wine. Other details:
Lanse is gifted with an interesting empathy with animals. He understands them intuitively and is able to communicate with them in a crude fashion. Some people choose to call him "Beastlord" because of this (combined with his personality). He travels in the company of a young adult dire wolf named "Misericorde", and two ravens named "Zephyros" and "Boreas".
