Ambrose Rose

Ambrose Rose is a member of New Caledonia, ranked as a Peer.

Hailing from England, Ambrose is a well-traveled gentleman with a keen eye for drink and debauchery. He sings for his supper and is often able to barter for passage using tales from his travels and the sparkle in his eyes. He was taught to play music by his father who passed away in a freak accident -- and though he says that he is traveling in search of his muse, perhaps this is a ruse? In Portland, he heard about the trials and tribulations of New Caledonia and decided to seek them out to offer his services as the Realm comes into its own.

A lute-playing, singing chronicler, Ambrose often makes up songs about the goings-on in the pack -- much to his comrades' chagrin.

Bright, chipper, and forever with a song on his lips Ambrose is exactly who you'd expect a bard to be. He's a fast and loyal friend if a bit cowardly- but don't hold it against him! He's an eager supporter, an immaculate performer, and a silver-tongued fellow.

Not particularly gifted in any means of self-defense, Ambrose relies solely on his wit and supposed "wisdom" to see him through the dangers of daily life. Well-read and "well-traveled" he calls upon stories and proverbs when offering advice, or just conversing really. He just loves to hear himself talk, and who could blame him, his stories are interesting ---even if they aren't always true.

As flirty as he is flighty, Ambrose is oddly alert for a wordsmithing minstrel. Restless and paranoid he'll jump at his own shadow given half the chance. If that weren't enough to spark suspicion, Ambrose grows noticeably uncomfortable when being pressed about his past.


  • Singing (Journeyman): Naturally gifted with a charming voice, Ambrose is particular about his talents and needs, taking care of his voice when he isn't singing by drinking warm teas with honey (if he can get his hands on some). His tone is pleasant and sweet, infused with great emotion that weaves a tale not just in words but in pitch, inflection, and rhythm.
  • Writing (Journeyman): First and foremost a bard is a wordsmith; literate Ambrose has polished his wit and vocabulary by devouring every text he can find. He notes his lyrics in an expensive leather-bound journal, forever searching for the perfect rhyme.
  • Bi-lingual (English, French): Ambrose is entirely literate in English and capable of writing. He can also speak conversational French.
  • Lute (Apprentice): Taught by his father, Ambrose is a passable musician. Though he relies on his honeyed voice to a greater degree, he can string chords sweetly enough, and takes great care of his father's lute.
  • Diplomacy (Apprentice): His talent as a wordsmith gives him an edge in conversation. While not often political, Ambrose's honeyed words are accomplished at calming tempers and soothing cares.
  • Trade (Dabbler): Not a craftsman himself, Ambrose's "gift of the gab" is useful in facilitating trade. He's capable of spinning a tale of an item's worth to an almost humorous degree which is sometimes enough to convince a less discerning merchant.
