Prince Hector Octavius IredalePlayed By:
Prince of IredaleDistinguishing Traits:
When the prince is being a prince, he can be seen wearing the finest tunics, clean-shaven—usually when forced—and donning the crest of the Iredale family on his ring finger. He carries himself with his shoulders high and chin up with confidence and his crisp, blue eyes shine with wit. He is never without his long sword, which he keeps at his hip within a decorative hilt of gold, iron and ivory. A decoration—the old thing—he prefers his knives.
In the city, the prince maintains a low profile. He will wear cloaks and the clothes of a common man. He will be without his ring and he will wait until his hair and beard has grown out.Likes:
Beautiful women, sex, drinking, a challenge, outwitting his enemies, getting his way, and staying one step ahead.Dislikes:
People who think they’re more clever than he, being outwitted, not getting his way, and his father’s niece.About:
Prince Hector knows how to get under one’s skin and the amount of information he knows about someone or some place can be rather daunting. Information is what he deals in. Having a silver tongue has not only won him battles without the need of him lifting a finger, but it has also teased the hearts of many women into sleeping with him. When in the city, the prince is who he wants to be and he has woven many tales about his numerous false-occupations: pirate, mercenary, merchant, sailor...he is quite educated and knows his kingdom like the back of his hand. When in a hostile situation, Hector is a professional at keeping calm. He will attempt to use his wit to get out of a situation, and then if provoked, he will use any means necessary to take down his enemy or escape. He has keen perception. His mind immediately will begin plotting a backdoor escape if a situation becomes overwhelming. However, like a beast, if he senses that he can take down his opponent, he will do so swiftly. His sharp eyes are always probing for a weakness in his adversaries and it doesn’t have to be just in combat. Being a prince, his words are often sharp enough to silence other royals or wound their pride.
Unlike most princes, Hector can’t stand the royal etiquette of his home. Nibbling at his food so he doesn’t seem like a slob, sipping at his drinks, and barely taking in enough sustenance that his stomach would finally stop bitching. He has mastered the speech of Poms: frou-frou
. He has also mastered the speech of L, L standing for “Lust.” His family often meets with some mighty fine noblewomen, and the prince isn’t afraid to get them alone.Habits:
Bedding women either noble, maids, or prostitutes, venturing out into the city to gather information, drink, eat, and party, practicing his knife skills, reading, and standing around looking pretty for his father’s and mother’s satisfaction.Skills:
Prince Hector is quite skilled with his mouth and sword. He underwent training as a swordsman though he realized that he was more adept with knives. They are easy to conceal and the speed at which he can throw them often catch his enemies off guard. Having mastered the art of deception, the prince is like a gifted assassin, lulling his victims into a state of comfort before taking them out. He can navigate using the stars and sail a ship if need be, though his interest isn’t in sailing. The prince is a natural at gathering information about people and making reliable acquaintances who can grant him many favors. His wit has made him rather infamous among the other houses. He is perhaps too smart for his own good.
