Sir Holance Tanars - 1382 DR
Holance could be described as athletic and in the prime of his life. He stands at 6'3 ft tall,
his build is a lean one and his musculature, if visible is quite toned. Blond hair, slightly pointy
ears, a straight nose and a strong chin are some of his features. His intense light green eyes,
and his honest smile denote resolve, courage and kindness. Tattoos with Damaran symbols are
visible on his forearms and biceps, but only when he is not wearing armor or any clothes that
would cover them. A scar is visisble on one of his forearms as well, though Holance has
never confirmed whether it is the result of an old battle wound or not.
Even though he would be considered handsome for most standards, the accurate word to
describe his appereance would be "commanding". This is probably in part because the man tends
to sport a well groomed beard that seems to grant him both, a more mature presence and also
the rugged looks of a seasoned knight or adventurer.
Most of the time, the paladin can be seen clad in silvery steel fullplate armor. This suit of armor
is engraved with the respective symbols of the deities Tyr, Ilmater and Torm. Those who possess
knowlege about armor crafting, would probably notice that several parts of the armor are
customized or unique in some fashion. As for helms, he favors horse hair ones, though sometimes
he can be seen wearing winged ones as well.
When it comes to weapons, the knight has selected a sharp looking longsword, engraved with an
unknown script, to be his weapon of choice. This blade can be seen hanging from his sword belt
most of the time, even when he is not prepared for combat. His armor and weapons may look special,
though the rest of Holance's attire is simple and even modest. A somewhat rusty necklace shapped
as Torm's armoured gauntlet is often visible around the neck of the man. He tends to wear either
white or blue robes and sometimes a white hood as well.
Holance is a calm and confident individual. He is polite and friendly to most, and he is extremely loyal
to those who win his trust and/or his heart. Those who are perceptive enough, would notice that he
can be slightly arrogant at times. Despite this, he strives to remain selfless and true in everything
that he does or says. Most displays of praise and/or admiration directed at him, are either deflected
or minimized as much as possible. An honest mind and a lovable innocence guide his spirit and his
Holance is an experienced paladin of Torm, who served in The Order of The Golden Lion for three years.
He left the tormish order of paladins in 1377 DR to become one of the five founders of The Triadic Order
of The Divine Resurrection. Nowadays, he champions the causes of justice, compassion and duty.
Recent events and circumstances have increased his faith in deities such as The Wonderbringer, the
Unicorn Queen and Lady Firehair.
Additionally, he has always been an avid learner. He is a skilled armorsmith, who can work steel and other
more exotic materials, such as mithril and dragon scales. His own armor is modified and customized to suit
his needs, and it is evident that he maintains it polished and gleaming. His ability to learn quickly has
inspired him to hone and perfect his swordmanship, develop a style of his own and of course become a
better warrior in the process.
His combat style could be described as defensive, somewhat acrobatic and reactive as well.
He usuallly grants his opponents the initiative, while he waits for the right moment to strike.
His style is heavily dependant on prayers and the favor of his deity, and his expertise provides
him with time to resist the attacks of his opponets, but in the end it only delays the inevitable.
He is first an foremost a defender, not a destroyer.
He bears the symbols and colors of the Triadic Order of The Divine Resurrection. This insignia is a
downward pointed sword, whose hilt happens to be the justice scales with an Ilmateri cord loosely
wrapped around it. It has black and white color scheme only.
