Lord Vittorio Gilden
Money isn't everything...no, wait. It is everything. Carry on!
Description: Golden blonde hair is left longer, but always well kept, never a strand out of place if he can help it. Vittorio is someone that pays close attention to the way he looks, and the impression that he makes. Even when he's relaxed, and getting his hands dirty he somehow manages to always be well put together, but never foppish or too prissy with his clothing styles and hair. Bright blue eyes are eager, smile overly generous, and hands strong and capable of doing anything from fine, deft motions to digging in the dirt if need be.
Personality: There is a grand sense of the theater to him, everything is a production. His hair, the way he speaks, his clothes, all of it has been carefully calculated to put forth the very best showing possible. He's gregarious to a fault, always oozing the charm, and sometimes that charm has a bit of an oily snake-oil salesman feel to it. He's got a bridge to sell, and you might just be the one that he wants to sell it to. Intelligent, well-educated, and well-spoken, he is capable of dealing with peers with style and flair, but also knows when to let go of some of the pretense and get real with people.
Background: He's the oldest son, but not set to inherit anything unless several other members of his family die prematurely, and he's hoping that never actually happens. He's more than content, happy even, to be left to his own devices, to make himself useful to the family, but not have to be in charge of anything but numbers and silver amounts.
Vittorio's father was fairly typical for the family, loyal, steadfast, good with a sword, kind but blunt. However, Vittorio is entirely different than that, and seems to take more after their mother. He's kind, of course, but there's a sharpness to that kindness, the slick sort of sell you a bridge across those two islands over there aura that surrounds him. Even when he was a kid he was always hustling for something, working hard at that extra piece of cake, or the prized possession of one of the other kids...if he wanted it, he'd find a way to convince them that it was best served being given to him. As the oldest of several kids, he always looked out for his siblings, made certain that they were well taken care of.
As he's gotten older he's turned his attention towards various charities, speaking loudly and proudly of his devotion to Gild, and the pantheon, the family and how it behooves everyone to help each other in darker times. Recently he's decided to head towards Arx to put his skills to use for the family there.
