Personality and Description


Rurik appears as a studious member of society. Forthright, hardworking, and an intellectual through and through are qualities he likes to make sure his peers know he inhabits. However, he’s much more easy going in reality. When in private he’ll smile broadly, laugh loudest, and even drink a bit too much when it’s offered. He does have a good work ethic, at least, when he chooses to use it. He’s as likely to be reading up on poetry, current events, or dragons as magic or medicine.

Because of certain events in his life, he’s a firm believer in freedom and equality. Racists are called out on what they are and Rurik is quick to anger when a person’s choices are taken from them. He also takes his job with high regard even though he might complain about it.

Rurik is short in stature, but lean. A runner’s build with very little in the way of extra weight on him. He’s perpetually mistaken for being at least five or so years younger than he is even with his angular facial features. Rurik still thinks he’ll one day get that growth spurt he was promised.

Some things have… changed. Angular features still intact, Rurik can no longer be mistaken as younger than he truly is. Since his transformation into a Draconic splicer he sports slit-like orange eyes and a double-helix pattern of scales that run up his arms and legs. These alabaster scales cover most of his shoulders, shoulder blades and run up and down the length of his spine. He also sports a set of slight protrusions from the top of his forehead that could be mistaken for tiny horns. This combined with a new mechanical arm painted in cherry red make him… noticeable.

Biography


Rurik comes from a military family and was pushed into the RDF’s junior officer training corps at a young age. He’s known for several things through his youth. One, for being an outrageous troublemaker and too intelligent for his own good; two, never holding a position for more than four months; and three, being expelled from Sage’s Academy because of a magical experiment he was in charge of destroy an entire floor.

He served during the Rune-Republic War and was honorably discharged under a fairly high rank for his age. After the war, he left the Republic and traveled until he began a new life in the Kingdom of Glastheim.
