Lucius "Old Luke" Coriandronelle

0 · 42 views · located in Promise City, New Mexico

a character in “Promise City Western RPG”, as played by Lucius the Deft

Description

Lucius stands 5,7 3/8 inches tall, has dark brown hair shot thru with gray, thinning at the front and with an increasingly large bald-spot atop his oval shaped head. The hair at the back of his head, conversely, is still markedly thick and full and dark, as opposed to most of the hair that carpets his lower face and upper neck, which is shot thru with snowy whiteness.

His eyes are penetrating and deep-set, giving the viewer the impression that Lucius is exceptionally keen of sight and that he observes all things. Perhaps, he once did, but not anymore. Lucius has astigmatisms in both eyes, and he habitually squints against harsh lights and direct sunlight.

Lucius' complexion is sallow like that of a man who's not seen an abundance of sunlight, he has large dark circles under his eyes. And his high cheekbones accentuate the wolfish leanness of his face, as does his narrow thin-lipped mouth, which seems fixed with a perpetual sneer of derision. Lucius, one can easily guess, rarely ever smiles. And when he does, his smile could easily be misconstrued as being a grimace of pain. Or a promise of villainy that has yet to transpire.

Personality

Lucius is soft spoken, but when he speaks his words; however few, carry much weight. Lucius is sly and secretive, often out-spoken, and rude, caring little enough for the niceties of proper society. Lucius is an opportunist and a chameleon with an uncommon ability to lose himself in a crowd of people. Even if that "crowd" numbers less than half a dozen.

History

Lucius is a career criminal and former duelist who all too often just barely escaped serious injury, dismemberment or death by the unsuspected agility in his movements, and in the uncanny quickness and nimbleness of his scarred and gnarled hands and feet. Lucius would be considered to have carpal tunnel syndrome from the countless tens of thousands of hours spent forging various documents, drawing maps, picking locks, etc. Usually quite slow and deliberate in his every movement, he seems to be able to intuit each move, be it attack or defensive movement, an opponent in combat makes against him, and respond with astonishing adroitness, if not the most gracefulness. It's possible Lucius was once a wealthy business mulgol, because he certainly possesses a keen understanding of high society manners and proper etiquette, though it is clear he despises other people who venerate those things. If Lucius ever had a great many possessions, he certainly doesn't seem to possess them now. His clothes are often ill-fitting and threadbare if fashioned of the finest material possible to obtain for even those in the highest echelons of proper society, even if they are decades out of fashion. And he carries an in-ornate basket-hilted broadsword in a threadbare scabbard he wears strapped across his back beneath his ragged hooded leather duster. And Lucius often carries a single spur of platinum bearing the signet crest of the Dominican Church in his left hand breast pocket. The spur is of an antique design and is rusted in spots with traces of what some have rumoured may, or may not, be bloodstains, which no amount of attempted cleansing has been able to expunge.

So begins...
