Sepharvaim


Basic Information

Name: Sepharvaim i'Orifiel
Race: Quel'anthasan Elf
Age: 300 (appears mid 20's)
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 170lbs
Eyes: Green
Hair: Dark purple, almost black
Profession: Boatswain on the Broken King

Physical Description
Seph has dark violet, messy hair, only distinguishable from black in certain lighting. He has bright emerald green eyes and a strong nose. He stands tall for an elf at 6'0". His skin is a light shade of purple. His body is solidly built and muscular from his years on the Broken King. Calluses make his hands rough and strong, and scars from various scrapes and wounds he collected from less than ideal encounters are scattered across his body. None of these marks have done anything to quell the yearning for adventure that is ever present behind Seph's eyes.

The quel wears some of the spoils of the crew's pillaging with pride as various earrings, rings, and necklaces. When working on the deck of the Broken King, the elf will wear light, unobstructive clothing or be bare-chested. Even in the thick of combat Seph will prefer light clothing that affords movement over protection.

Tome Background

Background

When Sepharvaim's parents married, it was not out of love. Sepharvaim's mother, Anaranė, was part of the house i'Me'a and his father, Lu'hiem, was the heir of the star house i'Orifiel in Trelore. Their marriage was merely a political move. Despite the unromantic circumstances of their marriage, Sepharvaim's parents quickly fell in love with eachother. Within a year of their marriage, spawned Sepharvaim as their eldest child and eventual heir to their house. Sepharvaim was raised in a loving home, the eldest of five brothers and two sisters, but somehow his parents made the time to nurture and care for each and every one of them. Sepharvaim and all seven of his siblings were given all the resources they needed to be among the most successful in Aelyria.

Sepharvaim loved his parents and siblings immensely, but he had no passion for the monotonous social and political events with which his family was intertwined. His love for his family made him try desperately for decades to be the kind of man that would make his parents proud to hand over their hard work. But as dry socialites tried to seduce his attentions, the young man would find himself staring off into the distance yearning to see what else was out there.

One night at a social function, the dam he had built up to keep back his adventurous yearnings broke. He couldn't, and still can't, say if any one event caused this. He recalls staring at a piece of food on the corner of an elderly human's mouth as she spoke about the intricacies of the salt trade between Arakmat and Medonia, when he quietly excused himself from the group. He remembers his sister, Della, looking at him curiously as if she sensed the sudden change in Sepharvaim, before turning back with rapt attention to the elderly woman. She had always taken to that life much more than Sepharvaim could have ever done. Then, he went out the door and shed off that life as easily as if it was a light jacket.

The first night on the streets on his own, Sepharvaim was an easy target for muggers. His parents had taught him academics and socializing, he was severely under prepared for the new life he had chosen. The group of ruffians had left him his underclothes, but had taken everything else of value that he had on him, except a silver ring with his family coat of arms they overlooked. Beaten up, but still not discouraged, Seph made his way to the coast and stowed away on the merchant ship 'The Broken King'. Hiding below the decks, Seph quickly learned that the ship, masquerading as an innocent merchant vessel, was a smuggling certain illicit goods. Seph was found by the crew after two days and was given two options, become shark food or work on the ship as a part of the crew. It was an easy decision.

It has been about ten years since Seph joined the Broken King's crew, and throughout that time the crew started to partake in both smuggling and pillaging merchant boats, leaving no witnesses. Seph has also worked hard and loyally for Captain Rorn, earning him the position of boatswain on board the Broken King.

Hand Mirror Personality

Personality

Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

Ever since that first night of an impulse decision, completely derailing the course of his life, Seph's behavior has embodied that moment. The reserved and bored noble evolved quickly into the daring and foolhardy pirate he is today. He doesn't plan many things in advance, believing that decisions made in the moment are the truest and best decisions to make. This can often be seen from an outside observer as Seph being thoughtless, unintelligent, and naive.

After five years with the crew of the Broken King, they have become more than family to Seph. If someone slights any member of the crew, they've made an enemy in Seph. Anyone the Captain trusts aboard his ship, is as trustworthy as they come in Seph's eyes. He's an agreeable man, able to make friends in the least agreeable situations, as long as you don't threaten the people that he cares about. Although his mannerisms have changed significantly in the decade aboard the Broken King, sometimes his pampered upbringing can be seen through seams.

Lute People

The Crew of the Broken King

The crew of the Broken King are captained by Rorn, mostly men of many different races, although there are more women than one would normally find on a pirate ship. For pirates, the crew of the Broken King are not all that bad. They plunder, pillage, and murder, but not excessively so. Captain Rorn keeps a tight ship, knowing that the pirates that become careless, are the ones that are caught. Compared to many other pirates, the crew of the Broken King could be monks. Murderous, lecherous monks.

They're an incredibly tight-knit group, and loyal to the last. The High Seas get lonely and they will often look to other crew members, men and women alike, to satisfy their needs for physical intimacy. One would be hard pressed to pick out two crew members that hadn't lain together at one time or another.

Compass The Ship

The Broken King

The Broken King is a 35 meter long, 200 ton Brig with two masts. It was originally used as a merchant vessel by Captain Rorn, before it was repurposed to also be fit for pillaging.

 
THE CODE

1. Every man has a vote in affairs of moment; has equal title to the fresh provisions, or strong liquors, at any time seized, and may use them at pleasure, unless a scarcity makes it necessary, for the good of all, to vote a retrenchment.

2. The lights and candles to be put out at sunset: if any of the crew, after that hour still remained inclined for drinking, they were to do it on the open deck.

3. No harming children.

4. To desert the ship or their quarters in battle, is punished with death or marooning.

5. No striking one another on board, but every man's quarrels to be ended on shore, at sword.

6. No raping. Just don't do it.

7. The Captain and First Mate to receive two shares of a prize: the boatswain and gunner, one share and a half, and the rest of the crew, one share.

8. Any violators of the code shall suffer what Punishment the Captain and the Majority of the Crew shall see fit.
