Romeo

A traveling musician and one third of the performing troupe with his friends, Macbeth and Tempest, Romeo is an inspired young man looking to find what his purpose might be in the world. Coming from nothing and clinging to what he now had with his friends, Romeo is left to wonder how a small guy like him might be able to fit in somewhere, or if he's even worth the trouble.

Appearance

Essentials

Basics

Romeo is very much a jumbled mix of various dog breeds. His short and wired coat is very akin to that of scruffy terriers. Along with his short, flopped ears and less than average height and the young man is very much dog in his appearance. Keeping himself looking his best comes fairly easily; given his coat is short the only parts of himself that Romeo needs to maintain are the wired, moustache-like hairs around his lips and his medium length, wavy hair.

Form

Mostly stays in Optime form so that he can perform.

Clothing

To commit to the look of a fancy bard, the boy likes to wear a leather cap with a red feather hooked into the side, along with an outfit consisting of a green patterned shirt and dark trousers.

Coloring and Markings

Romeo's colours also show a very mixed heritage; his coat starts as a base of light creams before layering into beige, dark greys and earthy browns, All colours overlapping to form various patterns across Romeo's face and body.

Personality

Outgoing • Polite • Oblivious

Basics

Having grown with not much at all, Romeo makes sure to accept everything he can get and remain grateful to the things he does have. His lack of attention as a pup and a feeling of lonliness means Romeo is quick to form new relationships, putting on a confidence that he has manifested for himself to help him avoid growing anxious. This confidence also bleeds into when Romeo performs; although a natural talent, Romeo also relies on his bravado to convince himself that he is in fact good at what he does, so that he doesn't falter or over-think things.

This can sometimes make Romeo believe he's more charismatic than he actually is, causing him to overstep boundaries and become potentially overbearing on others. Something Romeo also doesn't always notice when he's being pushy.

The boy is, however, quick to be polite and apologetic. He is willing to accept his faults if they are explained to him and try to do better, but often falls victim to just belittling himself and getting to worried to try. Romeo is still young and still very much learning, his world has been opened up by the influences of Macbeth and Tempest and the boy at least looks forward to what the future might bring.

Spirituality

Substances

Strengths

Weaknesses

  • No strong beliefs, will listen to stories from Macbeth however.
  • A social drinker, Romeo likes to have a bit of something to loosen the edge whenever he's feeling particularly nervous, but will never go too far.
  • Music (Journeyman): Although held back by his age, Romeo is something of a natural talent when it comes to music. With a few lessons but mostly self-taught, Romeo can play the lute and drums with good rhythm and harmony. His singing voice is also well trained, and Romeo is able to both sing and play without it messing with the beat.
  • Not a Fighter: Given the size of Macbeth usually deters thieves, Romeo knows only a little about self-defence from his younger days as a thief.
