Piero Adriatico

Piero Adriatico is currently up for adoption. Contact Mars by PM if interested!

Contract Overview

  • Development is okay!
  • Pre-adoption changes to this character ARE acceptable.
  • This character is under a Moderate contract, he has a backstory and some plot opportunities that require a bit of discussion before adopting. Otherwise he is generally rather open for interpretation and does not have to adhere to everything regarding personality and appearance.
  • If he is dropped or goes inactive without notice he will be reclaimed after one week if there is no correspondence. If you are going on prolonged absence or you have developed the character to a point where it does not make sense to re-adopt he will be NPC'd or remain inactive and is open to being picked up by you again.

by Mars

Piero was born to an Italian Wolf prostitute named Giana Adriatico and a German Shepherd sailor in Pescara, Italy. He had never met his father as he was conceived during a one night stand in the small towns brothel that is run by his grandmother, Jemma Adriatico. His mother, wanting a better life for her son, took him at a young age to Rome, learning of a city called Ostia ran by the generous Valentinois family she headed there to offer her services as a house maid to the women of the household. Piero was introduced then to the young family, forming a close attachment to Cesare as they both shared the bond of being bastards.

Through his mother's work and diligence Piero was lucky enough to become a sailor, like his unknown father, learning how to man various rigs, as well as take up sword fighting. When Cesare was given the task to start trade routes with North America he was hired on to help sail their vessel and provide protection, if it was necessary.


Piero is currently in Portland, guarding the ship and Valentinois property while Cesare and Agapito are in 'Souls trying to make trade connections.
