Kovnik Vaska Zakharov
Skilled Man O War/Aristocrat
Born a fourth son to minor West Umbrian nobility, Vaska spent his youth in the Kovosk Hills preparing for the honor and glory of warfare. Upon reaching his majority, Vaska volunteered for the military to earn his own fortune, an expectation for a son not due to inherit, and quickly earned respect for his talents. He joined the elite Man o War in short order. His service record has been impressive, showing constant engagements, notable successes and marked skill.
Vaska exists in the strange space between the low and high. His family heritage entitles him to respect and exemption from most of the common law, but he lacks wealth or land. This has led him to tread casually on the edge of law, rules, and tradition; a risk for a soldier but useful when commanding or working independently.
Following the defeat of Llael, Vaska's term of service was complete and he found himself given the option to leave regular military service at an opportune time - when the war in the south has grown stagnant, but the chaos of a newly conquered territory has left great opportunities for paid work. Vaska considers himself more of an irregular: taking on special duties for suitable pay, but still standing by his rank, nobility and loyalty to the Motherland.
Vaska's personality is rather utilitarian. He's usually jovial and easy going; he's compartmentalized the horror of war and sees little option to the violence he's trained to since birth, so he can seem at times surprisingly casual or blase. When needed, however, his passionate character can switch quickly to a vision of fury and command, instilling discipline by respect or violence.
He has a penchant for Ordic cigars, Llaelese wine and intelligent women.
