Asvaldir Ruriksson

Post  Kendall on Fri Oct 30, 2009 8:45 am

Name: Asvaldir Ruriksson. Surname is patronymic. Often shortened to Valli.

Age: 109, appears 32.

Race: Sucrphos (bear)

Origin: A village in the mountains to the north

Known Relatives: His brother and sister, Brandur and Anja. Parents died of natural causes at old age. Has a large family through uncles, aunts, cousins etc.

Relationships: No partner. Very close friends with Kadia Xunta [one of Jai's].

Physical Description: Asvaldir, being a more bear-like Sucrphos, is significantly larger than your average human being, but quite short for a male Sucrphos in his prime. He stands at 9'9" and weighs about 290Kg/45 stone/630lbs. His muscles aren't particularly defined due to fat, but they are huge, and he is able to easily lift things 3 to 4 times his own weight and heavier.
His body is covered in coarse hair, ranging from thick, on his chest, back, forearms and legs to fairly thin on his shoulders and biceps. His hair is quite long and scruffy, filled with knots and tangles and the odd leaf because of his lack of a sense of personal hygiene. He has a full beard that's equally as messy as his dishevelled hair. His nails are clawlike on both his hands and feet.

Behavioural Description/Personality: Asvaldir is surprisingly gentle for a bear man. Although he is quick to anger, he will not get into a serious fight with anyone without justification and will always try to talk his friends or enemies out of a violent confrontation before it begins. However, when he gets dangerously angry, he will often destroy anything that happens to be in his way. He is quite loud and lively when around friends, though more reserved around others. He loves his friends dearly, though he can be overprotective at times. He is quite the optimist and when travelling with others, he will keep spirits up with stories of past adventures, or of the history of his clan. He is even known to sing on the odd occasion.

Clothing Description: His clothing was all made by him with the exception of a thin sleeveless linen shirt, since he lacks the money to buy clothes from shops in towns. He wears a deerhide coat lined with fur over said shirt, carries a dagger on the belt at his waist and a wears a baldric over his shoulder to carry his axe. His trousers are made of the same hide as his coat, and since its difficult to find or make good shoes because of his bear-like feet, he doesn't bother wearing any.
When going into battle, he wears a leather tunic over chainmail and a visored helmet. He stores his armour in his house, since he doesn't often need it.

Abilities: Due to serving in the village militia and fighting various people over the course of his life, he is very skilled in close combat, his preferred weapon being his axe, though he often fights hand to hand as to prevent serious injury if against someone he doesn't want to kill.

Berserk: When enraged, he will sometimes fly into a blind rage. While berserk, he is usually unable to distinguish friend from foe as his animalistic instincts overpower rational thought, and will not concern himself with protecting himself against injury, only killing everyone and everything in the vicinity. When berserking, he takes on a more feral appearance, the claws on his hands and feet lengthen, as does his fur and teeth.
Also, while less common, he can reach a status similar to berserking if incredibly stressed or afraid. He will not go on a bloodthirsty rampage, instead becoming mentally more beastlike. When in this semi-berserk state, he acts on instinct alone, and will do whatever he feels is right. Unlike full berserk, this state often does more good than harm, as he doesn't just start killing everything.

Being a Sucrphos, he can also transform into a bear. This form is bigger and stronger than both his humanoid form and the average bear. If standing on his hind legs, it would be about 14-15 feet tall. Minor injuries can be healed when transforming due to muscles and skin reforming.

Weaknesses: As mentioned, he has no sense of self preservation while enraged, and so is very vulnerable to attack, particularly from range.
Asvaldir is stubborn, and often refuses to let those close to him help in dangerous tasks, even if they are more suited for it than him due to his overprotective nature, and this can frequently lead to arguments or fighting. Also, he's not the brightest bear in the woods.

Other Skills: A darn fine singing voice. In his opinion.

History: He left his home village to travel around the world when he was 25 because of his desire to see more of the world than the mountains of his homeland. He quickly fell in love with Pangea and didn't return home until 29 years later. When he returned, he learned of his parents death, and the grief drove him to leave once again. His sadness left him when he encountered what he felt was the spirits of his parents, and was forgiven for his absence at the moment of their deaths. Since then, he has been travelling all across the world adventuring.
During some point of his life, he met Kadia Xunta and has a close friendship.

Berserk - Appearance is probably going to change once I get a better idea, but this is the general idea
