Hans stands proud at 6'2", and he has nothing less than immaculate posture. From birth, he was taught to hold himself tall and strong. As such, he has strong muscles from body training and athleticism, enjoying morning rides and his fencing. He has broad shoulders, and dark eyes, with perfectly looked after shoulder length dark hair. His eyes are piercing, with strong eyebrows and a broad chin. As a part of his magic, he relies heavily on eye connection, and so he never looks away when he is talking to someone. His clothes are always immaculate, and he takes great pride in his appearance. First impressions matter.

Faceclaim: Henrik Fallenius

A smooth smile, a tip of the head, a sweeping bow. Hans is nothing if not gallant and polite. Working as an Ambassador, Hans has learned how to navigate social niceties, and he oozes charm. To the discerning, he might come off as smarmy, but Hans has found that those in the upper echelons of Ne'haerian politics love a bit of buttering up. Outside of work, though, Hans is cold, calculating, ruthless. He does not let people in. People to him are chess pieces, to be used and moved in order to better himself. He does not make personal connections without having an ulterior motive in doing so. Hans has no compunctions about using his Empathy in order to look into the inner parts of someone. Hans struggles if not in control, and can become verbally abusive, as well as physically intimidating, in those situations.

Son of a well-to-do merchant who always found himself rubbing shoulders with the nobility of Lysoria, Hans Maskarin never wanted for anything. The oldest son, Hans was blessed with access to all the educators and resources a child could want. His father, indeed, looked with pride upon his boy, who could never do wrong to his father, and this led to Hans becoming rather spoiled. Hans was taught that whatever he wanted, he would get, and Hans has brought this into his adult life.

Even when his younger sister, Elaine, was born, Hans had no real change in his lifestyle. Sure, his mother became more invested in her only daughter, but his father still favoured his only son. When Hans became old enough, he began to come along to his father's meetings with the nobility and the powerful of Lysoria, and was welcomed as a fitting heir to his father's fortune. The boy's sharp eye and shrewd intelligence brought him respect throughout his teen years, and also allowed him to make essential contacts in the upper echelons of Lysorian society.

Indeed, it was one of these meetings that ended in a quiet conversation between his father and a strange man Hans had not seen before. Hans was seventeen, and was directed by his father that a special kind of tutelage would begin. It would be private, and secret, and dangerous. Quietly curious, Hans acquiesed to this, and found himself embroiled in a secret he could not have guessed at: magic. The mages of Lysoria were quietly and surely gaining influence in Lysoria, a place that magic had not been approved of before, but Hans was quick to see the benefits magic would give him. He was intitiated into Empathy, and it remains a source of pride for the precocious man.

As Hans grew and became more respected as the heir to his father's work, so did his father diminish. His health began to fail, and while he is still alive, it is Hans in all but name that carries his father's influence and business. This has led to Hans being considered with the respect of his father, and as such, he has been elected as the Ambassador for Lysoria, with his charm and wit being essential with dealing with the other territories in the region of Ne'haer. But Hans has a secret agenda, and it's all to do with magic...

Starter Quest

Lysoria has plans. Great plans that involve great people and great feats. Great plans that do not involve Ne'haer and their intention to bring Lysoria into their folds. Eventually, other regions are going to have to choose sides. Hyran, ruled by House Marthel, is one of two regions in between Lysoria and Ne'haer. Placing pawns between the two of you is a politically strong move; however, convincing House Marthel to aid Lysoria instead of Ne'haer will be difficult. Afterall, they hate politics. Will you seek an alliance with Hyran or allow them to join the enemy?

Due to his Competency in Empathy, Hans can 'taste' emotions.

While these tastes always stay the same, Hans is either repulsed or attracted
to certain tastes due to his own current emotional states.

While happiness might be delicious to him at one time, this could be disgusting to him
if he is in a troubled personal state.
