a character in “Barbaric Ambition”, as played by CussingChild


Cralix is 6'0" and lean, muscled. He has a modestly handsome face and stubbled chin. His hair is fairly shaggy and dark brown hanging over his forehead. His body is scarred and a bit worse for wear having grown up in a tribe dedicated to war. He is well known for his agile nature and finesse in combat. And the deep set grey, calm eyes that set him apart from his bretheren. He's 22 years old and caucasian.


Cralix shines in battle, largely in part do to his cunning and tactical mind. He's a quiet man for the most part. He's moderatley confined and reserved for his upbringing and barbaric roots. Having some form, if not primitive manners. He's a bit socially awkward. But his charm allows for him to hold a conversation, and his wit and bold nature allow him to baffle most people that happen to disagree with his methods. He does his best to discipline his men, and honour and nobility are important to him. He considers his men his equals and is generally hospitible and generous putting them before him. His mind is usually sound unless ofcourse his fatal flaw comes into play. The true barbarian in Cralix comes out when he finds himself struggling with anger. It's both a weakness and a strength.


Cralix commands about 400 men, that he pays for with the taxes he collects from his lands in the tribe, they are fairly well equipped, and would be modeled after the Saxons. With about 35 of them wearing chainmail and the other 365 wearing leather armor. They are all equipped with gray-colored round shields. And about 200 with long swords, and the other 200 with battle axes. Atleast 100 of his men are equipped with bow and arrow. 50 are equipped with horses. All of his horsemen are equipped with longswords and spears. Atleast 100 of his infantry are equipped with spears. 100 of them wear saxon helmets. And the rest wear leather coifs.
Cralix wields one of his men's famed gray round shields, a finely crafted long sword and ofcourse, a trusty ceremonial dagger. He wears a Saxon Sutton Hoo mask helmet. He wears a white cloak that is torn and shredded that falls to the back of his knees. His chainmail hangs to his waist and is tied with leather to be tightly secured to his elbow so that it does not hang and covers a great deal more of his arms. And tigthly secured to his waist so that it does not hang and better protects his torso. He wears dark leather shoulder pads and dark leather gloves. He wears gray trousers and dark leather boots with iron plating. And lastly, a beautiful dark brown Cleveland Bay horse, with a black mane and black tail.


Cralix was born a captive of Rome, his mother had been captured and he had grown up a slave, he was well beloved by his master and he had him training in swords from a young age and being taught to read, but he was victim to a political struggle, his master was murdered in Rome by the tyrant Emperor Tiberius. Tiberius' men brutalized the slaves of the house, killing his mother and leaving him for dead in the burning estate. Cralix escaped through sure will power, will power and determination. Burning debris crashed into his body several times but he persevered, but that was the first challenge of many, at just 10 years old her had to find his way out of Rome, it took him 2 years and finally he arrived to find a tribe. He was a well respected member of the community and by 18 he had land and a hand in the trade between his and other tribes, becoming quite wealthy, he saw the war against Rome an oppertunity not to be passed up. He went to work training and training his men as best he could.
