A handsome redhead standing at a height of five foot ten, Rhodri has inherited the beauty of his mother, possessing a powerful and well-defined physique that he is not above flaunting by frequently forgetting to button up his many shirts. He is proud in his appearance, after all, whether it be his sharp jaw, pretty face and energetic emerald eyes or the athleticism of his body. Indulging in a little bit of vanity is barely a sin. A bracelet also hangs from his left wrist, featuring what appears to be cutesy-looking white stallion. Personality:
A kind-hearted and diligent individual, Rhodri is always amicable to lending a hand. His inherently caring nature makes him seem to be a bit of a sap to some, but in his eyes, looking out for others is one of the greatest goods in life. Thus, he can be frequently found checking in on anyone he feels is struggling, doing all in his power to ensure that they are happy and whole. The way he speaks is emblematic of this: he possesses a casual, colloquial and carefree tone (with a dialect clearly originating from central Arawn), and converses without any flourish, as if everyone he talks to is an equal. The youth is one of the friendliest people you can meet, and will stay by your side for life if necessary.
However, he is not without vanity. Rhodri takes pride in his appearance, and at times can be a bit too preoccupied with making himself look more beautiful. He at times also seems to put the mental health of others over his own, and no matter how cheery he seems at times, it is quite clear that he is affected by numerous questions and teenage ennui, particularly with regards to his heritage and role in his family.Abilities:
Besides the incredible strength and stamina he has inherited, which allows him to carry great amounts on his back akin to a beast of burden, Rhodri's key supernatural ability revolves around his voice. The mystical powers associated with the "Three Birds" also grant him the ability to lull the living into a state of sleep.
Despite his youth and looks, he is experienced at hand-to-hand fighting, particularly given his strength. He is also a good homemaker, having developed his skills in cooking, cleaning and other household chores in order to help raise and care for his half-siblings. He is also not beyond taking advantage of his handsome looks when a dose of charisma is necessary.
He can ride a horse.Equipment:
Longbow, apron.Short Bio:
A native of Dinas Maelor, the fortress-city that serves as the capital of the mountainous coastal sub-kingdom/cantref of Aberteifi in central-western Arawn, Rhodri was born out of wedlock to a local stable-master and an unknown woman. The identity of his mother unknown, for she had left soon after his arrival into the world, the youth's father raised him alone, managing to help guide him through the stigma of illegitimacy as he grew into age. It was only then that his father married another woman, with whom three more children were born. Rhodri found himself thrust into the role of an older brother, and to support the family, he quickly learnt to adapt to domestic responsibilities, cooking and cleaning for his beloved half-siblings when the parents had little time to do so.
For a while, Rhodri would have been satisfied with such a simple life, but soon he began manifesting magical powers that no-one else in his family had ever seen before. His father and step-mother were not magicians, nor did they have any experience in the supernatural arts. The source of his power, he quickly realised, must have stemmed from the bloodline of his mysterious mother, and Rhodri began to yearn for the woman he never truly knew. Thus, it was decided after much deliberation that the youth would attend Penvro, both to better his strange power (described by a passing-by magician as possessing an association with the "Three Birds"), and to seek out more information on his heritage.Strengths/Weaknesses:
Thanks to his inherited strength and beauty, Rhodri's talents are most effective in close-quarters, where his stamina and power allow him to fight on a high level. Coupled with his ability to send people to sleep (though a power limited by range), few have been able to approach him. However, from a distance he cannot bring his full force to bear, nor can he induce sleep in his foes, as his voice cannot carry so far. From there, he can only rely on his longbow.Other:
He is an avid fan of animals, and sometimes makes conversation with them.
