Persona Profile: Symion

Writer: Tyr

Name: Symion
Age: 25
Birthday: m9 d20
Rank: Senior Apprentice Vintner
Location: Vintner Hall, Amber Hills Hold
Craft: Vintner
Craft Rank: Senior Apprentice

Physical Description of Persona:
Symion is a tall young man with overly large bright blue eyes, dark black hair, and an angelic face that shows no signs of the devious criminal mastermind lurking underneath. Very few women can resist his charm, and most of them don't want to. His smile has melted the heart of the hardest kitchen workers, and earned him more than a few hasty kisses from laundry drudges and the cook's assistants.

Emotional Description of Persona:
With the charm to go with his looks, Symion is a popular young man in the apprentices barracks. His ability to liberate food from even the sternest kitchen matron has gained him more than one friend, and he's always willing to share the bounty when it will gain him another apprentice under his spell. Building a large group of friends who regard him as their leader has been his goal since the beginning of his tenure as an apprentice, and after several turns, he's done a fairly good job.

History of Persona:
Symion was born as the youngest son of a fairly rich minor holder. The darling of his mother and adored by his father, Symion developed into something of a spoiled brat, though a thrashing or two from his elder brothers kept him from getting _too_ out of control.

No number of thrashings could keep Symion from growing up used to a life of leisure. He learned early on how to use his good looks and charisma to get other people to do his minimal chores for him. The only task he couldn't escape from was his father's determination to have a Master Vinter for a son.

After a turn of failing to convince his father that he wasn't crafter material, Symion gave up and accepted his destiny. His first turn at Vinter Hall was spent learning how things worked. The next he spent doing anything necessary in order to avoid as much work as possible. He's learned enough to be a passable student--or at least enough to stay at the Hall, in any case--but whether he'll be walking the tables with his classmates in the next turn is something of a mystery.
