Nicola Varren


0 · 207 views · located in The Wasteland

a character in “A Gifted World”, as played by ianna_334



Full Name: Nicola Micheal Varren

Nicknames/Aliases: Viceroy, Viceroy Varren

Age: 43

Gender: Male

Loyalty: Erubesco Viceroy of The Citadel

-Fine body manipulation
-Mild technopathy (most he can do is move the cursor around and click without using a mouse)

Description: Nicola Varren was considered very handsome in his youth, and you can still see why beneath the effects stress and overwork has wrought. His hair is chestnut brown, though now streaked liberally with grey, but is still soft and healthy to the touch. He has olive green eyes which have lost none of their sharpness, though the sparkle has gone down in increments over the years. He has a few frown lines around his mouth as well as his forehead - evidence of how often he wears an incredulous expression on a day-to-day basis. He is a tall and solidly built man in relatively good shape (unless you compare him to the Knights in which case he is not). Nicola often looks stressed or irritated, or both. His smile lights up his face, but the Viceroy doesn't have much reason to smile nowadays. When the strain is especially bad, his hands begin to shake.

Personality: Nicola is intelligent, logical, strategic, and easily irritated. Enjoying logic and order, he finds it hard to deal with Erubesco’s general insanity. He is very devoted to the faction, and so takes it seriously, expecting his subordinates to do the same. Nicola is very hardworking, almost a workaholic, and he will happily go above and beyond for Erubesco. He tries his best to be fair in his judgement, but usually all his patience is used up by the second person to mess up. He’s a perfectionist as well, and he is severely aggravated when things don’t go according to plan.

-When not aggravated, is very rational
-Intelligent, good at strategy
-Doesn’t rule by fear
-Is competent at his job
-is good at reading others

-Believes that without him the base will fall apart
-Is prone to overworking himself
-Easily annoyed
-Easily stressed
-Horrible at handling that stress
-Has already had a few nervous breakdowns
-Prone to favouritism
-Is a control freak

Brief History: Nicola Varren was born to an established lordship and grew up hearing of the glory of Erubesco. Quiet and intelligent, the boy was still very much a child and loved to play Knights with his peers. His parents were highly focused on success and raised their children to be just as ambitious. Nicola, based on his personal definition of success, decided to join the Erubesco ranks. Though with potential to be an efficient Knight, the Erubesco leadership decided Nicola’s skills were mostly in administration, and put him on that track. As his responsibilities increased, his free time and energy for fun decreased.
The event that shoved Nicola over the edge to the serious workaholic he is today was the sudden death of his parents. Completely unexpected, both Varren children were left reeling. Suddenly, Nicola had to deal with the responsibility of being Lord Varren and managing his sister’s courtships while angling for the coveted promotion to Viceroy. As their ideologies split further and further apart, Nicola began to lose patience and as soon as Cecelia was safely married, he promptly disowned her.
Soon, the combination of overwork and higher stress response led the new Viceroy to begin suffering small nervous breaks that escalated over time. However, because he is good at what he does, Erubesco doesn't mind...much.

-He regrets disowning his sister but has no idea how to begin an apology

So begins...
