Daegon nar Daeshir A'RakatAge:
Standing at 6'4" and broad-shouldered, Daegon is a specimen of perfect Atlantian breeding. His body, toned like those of all Atlantians, is slightly more muscular than those of the rest of his countrymen, the product of years spent fighting in the wilds outside of Atlantis. Across his taut abdomen and chest are three long scars, which Daegon chose to outline with white tattoos. The combination of pale skin, tattoos and steely-eyed gaze make no mistake about Daegon's former occupation or his current resolve. Like many Atlantians, Daegon is ambidextrous. Role:
NobleHow do you feel about the human visitors?
When the tool one needs arrives, one gives little thought as to where it came from. One uses it.Character Personality:
"Arrogant, rash, violent and slightly mad" were the words the King used to describe Daegon. Though still young by Atlantian standards, he has accomplished much, and possesses an entirely un-Atlantian affinity for violence. Daegon, realizing his reputation as a power-hungry brute, has exploited and cultivated this impression by devoting almost all of his House's free males to the Protectors, and publicly indulging in the war-sports at the Atlantian Arena. Underneath this bloodthirsty veneer, however, is a calculating and opportunistic mind.Character History:
Daegon was born to into the A'Rakat House, one of the more bloodthirsty of Atlantis' noble clans. As the oldest son of the ailing Lord Daeshir nar Varan A'Rakat, Daegon was first in line for the House throne, and was expected to join the Protectors. However, when Daegon's squad was lost during a routine patrol, his half-sister Aera had him formally declared dead so that she would be first in line to the throne when Daeshir finally died.
Daegon spent the next ten years in the wilderness, surviving in air pockets and fighting off attacks from aquatic wildlife and worse things. With his squad dead and with no way of contacting Atlantis, he grew cold and ruthless in solitude. An Atlantian patrol found him devouring a squid he'd slain with a piece of jagged seashell, and after a struggle returned him to the city. Although House A'Rakat celebrated Daegon's return, Aera disappeared that night and was never seen again. With no proof that Daegon had removed his half-sister from the picture and no motive now that his claim was recognized, suspicion turned to the disappeared noblewoman's bodyguard, whose attentions she had spurned. The bodyguard was found guilty of the murder and imprisoned, leaving Daegon and Daeshir to rule alone.
Daeshir now rules House A'Rakat in name only, with his half-mad son Daegon controlling the House from behind the throne. Daegon sits at the meetings of the King, provides counsel and speaks for his father. It is only a matter of time, though, before the King or some other body moves against Daegon and attempts to put down the violent and depraved house. Daegon eagerly awaits that day.
