Jares MartellFull Name:
"The Black Viper, Prince of Dorne"
Regent of DorneHouse:
The Dornish people, more so than any other Great House, live in a isolated place far from the will of the Iron Throne. Separated my a large mountain range which makes traversal on land to the capital of Dorne difficult. Though they are still beholden to the Targaryen House as vassal Lords, the Martell intentionally raise their children and grandchildren with the knowledge and skills to be 'Kings' of their own nation. Orias Martell, father of Jares Martell, trained him from an early age with the strict discipline required of one with his house name. He was taught how to fight, how to command, how to navigate the waters of the most difficult political situations. All with the knowledge and intent that her would one day become an even greater ruler than those who had come before him. It was during this time in his childhood that, in quiet moments, Jares yearned for the powers of the Iron Throne. Believing himself worthy of such grandeur.
As with all children of the Martell family, he was trained extensively in combat. Initially he favored speed and range capabilities of a spear, as do most Martell male-heirs. Achieving the skill of a masterful warrior at an early age after his father hired tutors overseas to assist him. However as the years went on Jares also developed a great aptitude in the use of throwing daggers. His primary interest in this weapon stemmed from training with his older sister Sarella. His proficiency in their use came as a desire to impress her as his teacher, and while he is quite skilled, he is not so skilled as she is in their use.
Nobody would accidentally mistake Jares for being a 'kind man'. He is charming, but his charm is wrapped in a veil of egotism and entitlement. The man is ambitious to a fault. When his father took ill with the Mad Fever, Jares was quick to declare himself the Regent of Dorne, given that he was the male heir and next in line for the Throne of Sunspear. Removing any advisers who thought him too radical, while promoting those who were loyal to vision of the future. Which, inevitably, was to sit upon the Iron Throne. After the announcement the King will make, Jares see's the perfect opportunity to achieve his goal. He does NOT want to be independent like many Lords. Jares wants to sit upon the Iron Throne.
Shortly before being called to Kings Landing, Jares spent time in Sunspear with the visiting Head of the Greyoy House, Ava Greyjoy. For the summer period when she stayed with Jares and his family, the pair become close friends. Relishing in all the joys and pleasures that have been associated with the home of Sunspear. Their summer romance however was cut short when the sea beauty had to return to Pyke after receiving news of her ailing husband. Jares has not seen her since.Family Connections:

Physically Jares is at the peak of his life. Tall, handsome, and athletically built. He normally wears the traditional attire of a Dornish male member of the royal family. A orange or red tunic with their house crest located just above his heart.
The most distinguishing feature about him is that, when disrobed, Jares has several black beings surrounding various parts of his limbs. They appear as small spider webs branching out along his flesh. Some as small as a penny, others as large as a silver coin. These are areas of his body where Jares regularly dosed himself with some of the most common and deadlier poisons of the realm. Intending to build up a tolerance should anyone attempt to try and assassinate him.Personality:
As stated in the history, Jares is a charming man wrapped up in a veil of egotism and selfish ambitions. He treats the "low folk" like his lesser (which they are). Those with power fall in to one of two different categories. Some he considers as friends, 'friends' meaning they can mutually benefit each other in their respective quests for power. The other category are roadblocks. Jares has no patience for roadblocks, and either ends up ignoring or killing them.
Surprisingly the man is affectionate to really only his sisters, whom he loves quite dearly. It is strange that this affection never transferred to his father. Likely because Jares always thought that his father fell in to that 'second category'. Someone who stands between him and becoming the Prince of Dorne. Ambition has bread paranoia in the man, which will become more powerful in his psyche after the King's announcement.Aspirations and Goals
