Expressing interest in the character of King Robert's bastard - a 'ward' from a small and long-broken House that is quietly, and desperately, keeping up the pretense that that their first son is not so weak and addled by a riding accident as to be utterly useless and that their second son (my character) is not a bastard. They're all but ghosts walking, and this thin shred of illusion is the little that stands between them and vanishing, a footnote in a dusty Maester's ledger - and it IS an illusion, of course. One they couldn't sell for a heartbeat without the assistance of House Greystark, who have accepted my character under certain unusual conditions - fealty of the permanent sort beyond mere wardship-until-adulthood, as an oath on public record, a humiliating concession and acknowledgement that they cannot lay claim to even the respect due a banner house - and a singular service done for Lord Greystark to go in my Secrets section, one certain other characters will hopefully enjoy.
He has little nobility, but he does his best to be noble; unfortunately, the only talent of his that's particularly developed is a breathtaking facility with violence and a likewise-uncanny natural grace. Which would be ideal if he was a mercenary or sworn sword, or if it was at least backed up by some talent for command...instead it just pushes him ever farther away from political relevance, into the pigeonhole of retainer. Of nobody, the way he sees it. And he has very good eyes. Oh, and he's huge. His House - well, his lineage, at least - are crannogmen. Huge, weirdly nimble, descendant of the frog-eaters...it took less time than a blink to assign him his styling in House Greystark.
They call him the Toad.
(Flail-and-knife fighter; would like to reflavor a parrying dagger as a frog spear, if allowed, as a cosmetic concession. Good at the personal-scale combat four-sided pyramid, notably Agility and Awareness, will leave other things to other people. Not incompetent in a social contest but definitely always a support role at best. Have a lot of things to flesh him out with, the above is just a sketch to give y'all some context.)
