The High Septon (formerly Jerith Flowers)Loyalist or Separatist:
Being a bastard, he has no concept of who his family was, only that his mother was a tavern girl and his father a lord of the Reach. He owes his position to the Lannisters.Faction:
Head of the Faith of the Seven.Family:
His mother died when he was 12, and he never knew his father, or if he had any siblings.Appearance:
The latest High Septon is a tall, comely man in his early 40's. He has short brown hair and brown eyes with high, sharp cheekbones. He is a thin man, especially when compared to his robust predecessor. His appearance and demeanor have led to him being called 'the Pretty One'.Personality:
The current High Septon cares little for others beyond their use to him. When working in his role as a man of the Faith, he is able to inspire many, but it's all a show to him. He can be charming, but he tries to keep conversations brief, as he's unable to truly understand if he says something offputting or unsettling. He is intelligent, driven, and ambitious. While having no real feelings to speak of, he is rarely needlessly cruel, and takes no pleasure in hurting others. If required to fulfill one of his schemes, however, he will not flinch from harming others.Equipment:
He wears the traditional crown of crystals when performing his duties, and his dress changes depending on the situation. When among mainly nobilitty, he prefers to garb himself in stylish robes that many nobles would be jealous of. When walking amongst the smallfolk, he prefers a more subdued attire, to make it easier for them to identify with them. He almost never carries a weapon, having little skill in martial pursuits.Skills:
The High Septon has a natural gift for speaking in front of large groups, one he has honed to an artform on his way to becoming High Septon. Between his voice, mannerisms, and presence, often members of the crowd will be reduced to tears.
Possessed of a keen mind, the High Septon is quite adept at finding out who his enemies are, and deducing their plans if given enough time. He is well-read, and is fond of the Maesters of the Citadel, despite the usual animosity most septons feel towards the secular group.
Though he has very little emotions himself, he is able to mimic them with precision, enabling him to pass as normal, most of the time. However, occasionally he will miss the mark and put on a brilliant display of an inppropriate emotion.[/list]Origins/History:
Jerith Flowers was a bastard-born son of a tavern girl and a noble from the Reach. He was never officially recognized, and when his mother died when he was 12, he decided to serve the Seven. Between his intellect, charm, and ability to sway a crowd, he was able to attain a seat amongst the Most Devout by the age of 27. Some whisper that he was somehow behind his predecessor's death, which was deemed accidental when he choked on his food.
I'll be glad to fill in more, this is only what I have so far. I know quite a bit about the series, both the books and the television series. I'm about halfway through the third book, but I've spoiled myself on a lot of the major points. If High Septon is perhaps a bit too high up the food chain, I can change it up to something else, I have a few ideas.
