This thread will contain my source material for the roleplaying of the character "Ezio di Fealtro", a paladin of The Red Knight that is based loosely on the historical figure Federico da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino.
Age: 24 in 1381 Born: 28 Mirtul, 1357 DR, Year of Prince Location: Ormpetarr, Sespech in The Vilhon Reach
Born under the Sign of the Serpent and with Gibbous Selûne under the sign of the Serpent Those born with Selûne under the sign of the Serpent have good memories and are articulate, strong willed and resourceful, emotional and enigmatic. They have quick responses but are prone to sudden mood changes.
Sun Separating Trine Anadia This trine gives courage, willpower, leadership ability, and decisiveness. It is especially favorable for men, because it strengthens the traditionally masculine attributes of ambition and self-confidence. Often considerable physical strength and endurance accompany this aspect. The natives can function at high energy levels for prolonged periods of time and are often fond of sports or other physical activities. Gibbous Selûne in the Third decan of the Serpent Selûne here emphasizes an ability to take the lead and organize others. Anadia in the Third decan of the Raven Anadia in these degrees marks a high energy level which indicates both physical and mental alertness. Anadia Applying Square Karpri This square causes emotional problems, especially in romance and relationships with the opposite sex. Sometimes there is a tendency to use members of the opposite sex or to be used by them for purely sexual gratification. The natives may lack good taste or refinement in their social conduct. Unbridled passion can cause them great harm. Coliar in the Third decan of the Stone Coliar here is an odd mixture of shrewdness and vulnerability. While this decan stresses an impressionable and highly creative mind, the Scorpio degrees mark a more secretive and suspicious mind. Coliar Applying Trine Karpri This trine indicates a harmonious, pleasant disposition. It is especially favorable for women since it enhances the traditional feminine virtues, such as beauty and gentleness of emotional expression and affection. There is a great deal of sympathy and empathy for others. The natives' presence has a soothing effect. Coliar Applying Oppose Garden This opposition indicates eccentric opinions. The natives are inconsistent in thought and stubborn in adhering to their ideas. No one can change their minds for them, although they may do so themselves twice in one day. Their speech is usually blunt and tactless, unless other aspects indicate the contrary. They are arrogant and conceited.
Description of Ezio di Fealtro on arrival in Cormyr on 21 Eleint 1381 DR
A Chondathan male, in his early to mid-twenties.
A full head of jet black hair,cut short and brushed towards his forehead, frames a healthy olive-skinned complexion. Deep blue and alert eyes sparkle from the young handsome face. The male is of average height for a Chondathan male (about 5'10") and has an athletic build.
He is a warrior from the looks of him: His armour, weapons and clothing is clean and well kept; his pack and pouches are organised tidily; he carries a longsword and it's scabbard which hangs from his belt on his left-hand-side.
