Alpine

Introduction
Alpine, a strange adaptation of a very fennec-like appearance. His coat an excellent, lush snow coat with blue, white and black tones rather than a short, soft sandy fluff like other fennecs. He even glows in a variedy of ways, depending on his emotion. His first and near only experience with changing soul gems resulted in him crippling his caretaker unintentionally in the fallout of his soul ridden state.

He is not originally form firmament but from a land to the northeast, in a land not only far out but fairly out in the boonies, as an oddity he was blamed for a lot of hardships that befell his fellow superstitious countrymen, to the point of believing most of it for the better part of his childhood, reaching his teenage years caused him to become disillusioned with most things and regardless of his training in craftsmanship, there was little his country could offer, so he set out.

Between his leaving his homeland and arriving the more tropical land here in the south, he has worked a variety of trades, some less savory than others. These days he runs the day-to-day operations of a small company that owns a shipyard but also specializes in extracting resources from out at sea as well as salvaging shipwrecks and flotsam, true to his nature as a jack-of-all-trades, smith and tailor, for the Silver Lining Shipwrights company.

Stereotypes
  • Courtier and performer Alpine is in touch with his feminine side and entertains not only very womanly body language but also a fairly shapely build- for a male. He dresses the part occationally, other times opting for just more form fitting gentleman wear. A side result of having worked as an actor and show dancer for quite a few years in a country to the east.
  • Disillusioned Most things that have to do with superstition, in particular unfounded rumors are not only a source of annoyance to Alpine, but also the kind of thing performers make good use of. On one hand, he doesn't get phased by gossip, on the other, he's a little wary of things like creators and any related talk.
  • Freeswords He will do work for them, just as anyone else, but has most of his experience of how to make a living with social pretending and craftsmanship, and thus tends to avoid what he views as potentially violent.
  • Soul Gems He has been warned to avoid them since he was little, even though his only real personal experience using them is not something he remembers a lot. The only thing he knows is that using them may lead him to hurt people he cares about, and therefore dislikes open use of them as a more cautionary measure.
  • Nobles He loves them, and he hates them. He's been hired specifically for shows for his exotic coat and the workplace he was studying at being less than reputable. They're great for income but he does not care for a noble's tendency to believe they are entitled to a little extra for being a patron on behalf of an audience.
  • Contract holders Tied in with the above. He does his best to separate professional relations from personal ones. Not only as a performer, but would probably transfer to sellsword and merchantile work, too. Often even, for a lack of better words, seducing clients into hiring him. The problem with this is that he's often very good at making people fall for his guiles.

Contacts
  • Cirra - The fennec finds his most dear shark an adorable bundle of silent togetherness. Drawn to the deep, strong personality that shines out like a symphony despite her muteness.
  • Mecka - Fellow Silver Linings shipwright, one of the people on his payroll the liger appears a bit strange even to him, but that is perhaps even more positive, to Alpine.
  • Siyu - One of his favorite drinking buddies, Alpine considers the kangaroo rat high class, even without considering the stylish clothing.
  • Jera - Originally knows Alpine via a stage name, as Alpine knows knows his family through frequent business, the two have crossed paths in passing, for the most part.

RP Hooks
  • Courtesan Alpine is a social creature, professionally, he can be more distant but loves to entertain regardless. It has led him to work as a butler, a performer and a translator for more political delegations his troupe has been hired for, being both shadow tongued and good with language means he has learned an amazing amount of languages, even some older creator ones, mostly via self study. He even knows sign language and lip reading. Meaning there is very few he cannot talk with, and very few ways left he hasn't learnt to communicate. Body language is something he has to consciously focus on, since he's so used to performing that he often ambigously lies with his own mannerisms without intending to.
  • Everything has its price Even, if not especially someone of less savory pasts such as Alpine, on the other hand, he's used to being fairly coveted during the time he still hired out regurlarly, just before coming to firmament, that he's expensive as a result. A performer, a singer, and good with crafts.
  • Hungry for knowledge He's not one for myths and legends, even though he loves them, he loves them for their stories and the imaginative aspects, any knowledge is good, even fictional knowledge. On the other hand, he will press rumors, hearsay and superstition for truth and isn't beyond insulting someone for being backwards.
  • Crafting, projects, exploration Adventure and figuring out what someone wants or needs and then providing it to them. Discovering new, strange things can also lead to a pretty coin.
  • Expensive tastes/Workman's spirit Food, clothing, artifacts. He know what's valuable even in a heap of garbage and will often go out of his way to make something of it, even if he doesn't care for coin in itself, he will try to shape scrap into tools, and gemstones into jewelry. Being good with his hands only makes this an unbearable itch at times.
