Name: Saturos Prox
Class: Myrmidon --> Swordmaster
Title: The Nomad Warrior
Age: 31 (post time-skip)
Height: 6' 5"
Hair Color: Silvery Blue
Eye Color: Red
Born in: Etruria
Appearance: Saturos while tall, is not lanky. He has the muscles of one who devotes himself to physical training. While muscular he is not bulky, preferring athleticism over brute strength. Due to a iron headband he wears, his hair does not hang around his head, but instead falls mostly to the right side of his face.
Clothes: He prefers to wear a pair of white, slightly baggy pants, and a pair of armor plated boots that reach just below the knee. Much of the time when he isn't traveling, Saturos just goes shirtless.
His armor is, interesting, to say the least. Saturos made it himself. Saturos tends to only wear his armor when he's traveling from place to place, or preparing to fight, which he does very, very rarely nowadays. His armor consists of a chest piece and two iron bracers which he wears on his forearms. The chest piece is essentially a cuirass with extension down the sides and back to cover his rear and thighs. The cuirass is uniquely designed for Saturos, fitting him extremely well, and is semi-ornate in design. On one shoulder, there is a metal, ring-like extension over the shoulder guard, and on the other, he wears no shoulder guard. He also enjoys a cape when he travels, which he tends to wear over his bear shoulder.
Personality: Saturos is extremely laid back. He spends most of his time exercising and practicing his swordsmanship, simply for the sake of doing so. He doesn't have a home anywhere, preferring to keep moving, living the life of a nomad. He enjoys going into small towns and living it up in the bars. He's sociable enough to make friends wherever he goes, but still enjoys being alone most of the time. He really doesn't know what to do with himself, and yearns for the adventures of his past once again.
Story: Saturos was born the sole child to a couple in Etruria. They both came from an extremely wealthy merchant background, and thus expected Saturos to take up the pencil and logbook to become a merchant like all of the men in his family. Saturos, however, had other plans. He didn't really like the idea of becoming a merchant, stuck inside crunching numbers or hawking goods in the marketplace. He wanted to go out into the world, fight some wars, gain life experience. His parents thought he was being ludicrous, and kept him in the family business. Whenever he could, however, Saturos would practice his swordsmanship in secret.
One day, Saturos grew tired of the whole merchant ordeal, and at age 18, hitched a ride with some traveling preformers and lived as the their book keeper and marketer. He did this for 2 years until he signed up with the Bern army on a preformance trip through Bern. For the next 3 years he fought in the Bernese army. He became good friends with his squad members and was praised as one of the best soldiers in his platoon: determined and dutiful.
However, it was not to last. During one campaign against Lycia, Saturos' platoon was destroyed. Every member was either killed, captured, or left half dead on the battle field. Saturos managed to get away from the battlegrounds carrying one of his wounded comrades, a young, poor, 16 year old mercenary from Ilia that he had befriended. Saturos' left arm, however, was severely injured. They made it to a small town in Ostia. The mercenary healed up and returned to Ilia. Using what little money he had left, Saturos tried to get medical help for his arm, but with the help he could buy, a full recovery was not possible.
For the past 8 years (5 of those during the time-skip), Saturos has lived as a nomad, spending much of his time in the Ilian mountains and on the Sacaen plains. He travels from city to city, doing odd jobs to make money, and spends much his time training, partially to help his arm regain strength. Due to his injury and his lack of combat over the past 8 years, his actual combat skills are rusty and extremely lacking.
