I'm gonna start working on getting this dude into
I've given him a bit of a redesign and have worked a lot on his story, and so I've actually deleted all the other images I've already posted of him. I intend to redraw the one that was a joke with Vaudesir, Lady Alraune and Prince Vita because I still think it's funny, but I just don't care enough about the others to redraw those. There were only three images so it's not like anyone's really gonna miss them.
Anyway, here's a reference picture and a bio to get started on. Also, because part of Vaudesir's new story includes him kidnapping anyone of political value, I'm open to allowing people who want a kidnapping as part of their OCs backstory to use him (with permission) if they want something a little more original than "Kidnapped by Bowser" I think I'm getting the hang of this new chibi style I've got. I'm gonna keep it. Bio Name:
Lord Vaudesir *last name pending*Age:
On the surface Vaudesir seems like a difficult man to get along with, however once someone figures out that most of the insulting things that Vaudesir says are actually intended as humor, it becomes much easier to befriend him. Professionally, he tries to keep a cool head, especially when it comes to political matters, but when in a heated debate Vaudesir can be quick to anger.Abilities:
Vaudesir does not possess any uncommon abilities.Skills:
Vaudesir is a skilled political speaker, possesses a decent hand at swordsmanship, and is a gifted composer. Physical Appearance:
Vaudesir is around 6’4” with dark-brown curled hair that he keeps in a low ponytail that hangs over his left shoulder. He has thick, black eyebrows and a large forehead. His eyes are bright brown. He has a very handsome face, it’s only ‘blemish’ is the large blotch on the left side which is much lighter than the rest of his skin. Vaudesir is very particular about his appearance and keeps himself well-groomed, with a very neatly trimmed van dyke inspired beard and carefully combed hair.Background:
Vaudesir is the second son of a wealthy wine merchant, originally intended to pick up his father’s trade alongside his older brother Muscadet and his sister Syrah, Vaudesir was discovered to have a talent for composing at an early age and was sent to an academy for music study. Although he excelled at composing, while at the academy Vaudesir also discovered a deep passion for political debate at the age of sixteen and changed his major.
After his years at school, Vaudesir moved to a small country inhabited mostly by Shy Guys donning black robes. Exercising the skills he learned at the academy, Vaudesir quickly rose to be a highly respected lord among them, eventually setting the goal to have this small country recognized as an official kingdom that would operate on exports of opals and other precious stones. As a leader, Vaudesir is respected mostly from a distance due to his unsavory personality, but does have quite a few zealous supporters for his campaign. Vaudesir also keeps a list of more under-the-table allies that include some shady dealings with pirates and other dirty politicians.
Recently Vaudesir has adopted the habit of donning a disguise which he uses to kidnap valuable political hostages to hold for ransom. Through all of this, Vaudesir barely keeps in touch with his family, but has gained some popularity in his composing. Fans of his music often comment that Vaudesir would be better off sticking to his composing instead of getting involved in political affairs.
*side note: Vaudesir’s country will probably not gain official recognition as a kingdom during his lifetime.
