Physical Description of Persona:
Blessed with incredibly handsome features, Kiomo does everything he can to make the best of them. His black hair is kept just long enough that it falls slightly across his face, and he is forever running his long fingers through it, moving it this way and that until it's perfectly styled the way he wants it. His eyes are dark and intelligent, but can look soft and full of compassion and understanding. One of his best features is his mouth - nice full lips that curve into an array of smiles: cocky, confident, thoughtful, teasing, delighted, sly, but above all, charming. He dresses his long, slender frame in all the best clothes that suit his looks and his station in life.
Emotional Description of Persona:
Kiomo comes across as warm and friendly, compassionate and understanding, dedicated and hardworking. Though he has his moments of arrogance, most would agree that he is truly humble considering his upbringing, and though he would be the first to admit to anyone that he was flawed, most can look past his minor blemishes to the charming and friendly young man inside.
Most might agree, but they would be wrong, for Kiomo is not at all like what he seems. Far more goes on behind those dark eyes and flashy smiles than one might imagine. Kiomo's main concern is only himself. The world owes him a living, and if it's not going to grant it freely, he will just go in and take it for himself.
History of Persona:
Lord Bireki of Ancient Stones Hold fathered many sons, the fifth of which he named Kiomo. From a young age, and despite his place in line, the black haired boy with dark eyes and a charming smile stood out as one of this father's favorites. Though there was little doubt that his oldest son, Bireden, would inherit the Hold, he had special plans for his fifth son.
The young man was noticeably devastated and distraught at the sudden death of his father when he was but eighteen turns old. Though he stayed at the Hold more than a turn after his father's death, most would agree that he had changed in his temperament and attitude. His older brother had not forgotten his promise to their father to provide for their family, and especially to find a suitable place for Kiomo, and was rather surprised when his younger brother paid him a sudden visit.
The young man said he could not linger in the Hold with so many memories of their beloved father. It was just too painful. He had to make his own way in the world. Kiomo asked for, and was granted, a sizeable inheritance, and was set free to make his own destiny.
Six turns later, Kiomo found his way to Garnet Valley Hold, full of hope for his prospects and excited about the opportunities that lay ahead for him. His main goal - to use his charm to woo the widowed Lady Thalia in order to share in the inheritance she came into after the death of her husband. What he hadn't counted on was the Steward of Garnet Valley, Penryn, ruining his plans.
After having his grand plans thwarted, and after a lapse in judgement involving a Holder's wife being the last straw, Kiomo finds that he is no longer welcome at Garnet Valley. He must once again uproot himself and start over. Sunstone Seahold, after all the turmoil in the change of leadership, seems like an ideal place for him to try his luck. Hopefully this time he will fair better in his schemes...
