Crayon Awards: Favorite New Male Persona (December 2015)

Physical Description of Persona:
Bortem is 6'3 tall, with a slim frame, bordering on skinny. Everything about him is long, his body, his legs, his fingers and toes. Even his hair is a little longer than it should be. Even if he has it cut, it always looks a little bit messy and in need of another trim.

Clothes, well if he always looked respectable it's because if he wasn't, his mother would nag him. He doesn't care, but he knows she does and it's not worth earning her ire. So everything looks neat and tidy and always matches; except his socks. These are his rebellion. They match each other, but not always his outfit.

Emotional Description of Persona:
Bortem suffers from a classic addictive personality. He likes fine wine, but he loves gambling more. It also loves him; or rather it loves taking his marks and dragging him deeply into debt. He'd still gamble again, given the chance.

He's also a mother's boy.

History of Persona:
Bortem is the youngest son of Yriadha, the head woman of Sunstone Seahold. He was pretty much spoilt by his mother and taught the value (or lack) of his sisters from her. Being able to do pretty much whatever he liked without having to worry about the consequences isn't a good way to build a responsible and sensible human being. So it was a surprise when he started gambling, losing and having to comprehend that he actually had to pay it back.
