Mental characteristics

Personal history

Kerymis was born in Cla'ath Dul in Empire of Islenor, 14th of Sep, 3616.

Education

Employment

(see above)
  • He has worked as a professor for quite many years, but also as the Vice Principal of the Numen Hoop University in years when the Island still belonged to Islenor.

Accomplishments & Achievements

(See above for his academical success)
  • In the Army he achieved a bravery award and a distinguished service award

Failures & Embarrassments

  • Having lost his senses to the bitter anger when Taelras was lost (see below) and killed (innocent) people
  • That he couldn’t be a better son and instead pursued a career his family did not expect
  • That he lost his cool over an argument with his second student Nakhar Gravelpike. Eventually the anger faded and he was bale to bend his head despite the pride, trying to reconcile with his student.
  • That he abandoned his dear mother alone to the continent after his father died
  • That he couldn’t be a better father for his boys (as girls still live at home)
  • That he had to drag Nharaigh, Galadher and the rest of his family into this mess because of his sense of justice
  • Where we come to the point that he is deeply ashamed of himself for not doing anything and just hiding away and trying to survive during the most recent war

Mental Trauma

  • Losing people in general (See below)
  • The relationship with his brother Enwandor had always been a difficult one, but especially the last time they saw each other before Enwandor departed for the war had added to the burden, as they fought back then and he never got to apologize, as Enwandor didn’t return from the mission that turned out to be his last. Everything regarding his late brother is still slightly sore to Kerymis.
  • Losing his mentor when he was still a cadet in the army and being the one tasked with leading the group to safety left marks on him, which, to this day, have not fully healed. The grief over his mentor and good friend Taelras made him to succumb into the darker part of the elven nature.
  • Losing a numerous number of other friends in the army left its mark.
  • Losing, yet again, his third student Nephenee Bonner and raising her underaged child as his own.

Intellectual Characteristics

Logical, caring, dutiful, just, faithful, loyal, diplomatic (at times), ready to sacrifice himself for the sake of other or better world and thus easily forgets to take care of himself, thinks like a professor…

Morality & Philosophy

  • With compassion the world would be a better place
  • Knowledge is power
  • Very specific about proper code of conduct
 

Sexuality

Mainly attracted towards women, but for him love can have many sides and he is ready to make sacrifices on the altar of love. He loves his wife dearly, but so does he love Mion, his husband In the same, and in a different way, and sex is just one way to show you care about someone.

Taboos

  • He has hard time showing his (sad) feelings in front of others and usually can not cry then
  • If someone takes that one step towards a compromise, offers a hand for a shake to seal the deal peacedully and does so politely, truthfully and ready to reconcile, putting themselves at the stake, then you shall not slap that hand away. Never, if they do so in good will.

Personality Characteristics

Motivation

  • Protective instinct
  • Compassion
  • Guilt and regret
  • Justice

Savvies & Ineptitudes

  • Excellent at scribing scroll
  • Very knowledgeable on magical minerals, rituals, and the Weave.

Likes & Dislikes

Likes: children (and baby animals). Likes to hug people, but knows it doesn't always solve all problems (if only!).   Dislikes: people who don’t know how to behave. And olives.

Virtues & Personality perks

Just, accepting and loving. Like a proper scientist, he constantly aims to change himself and the world for better.

Vices & Personality flaws

  • Finds it very hard to cry and openly discuss on his own negative feelings
  • Slightly racist
  • Inflexible at times

Personality Quirks

He tends to have the silent 'high elf nod'. When the talks, mainly when he's unconsciously uncomfortable with the topic or the problem of the discussion, he tends to circle around the important things he wishes to say, being unable to pronounce the real underlying issues directly.

Hygiene

Very clean, used to do the family’s laundry. He takes very good care of his appearance, but mostly out of habit and the need to be presentable than peacocking around in fancy clothes. For him, having clean clothes, ironed shirt and matching cufflinks is a way to show that he can keep his things in check.

Social

Contacts & Relations

His soulmate Aod Flickerpetal
(and many, many others…)

Family Ties

  • Wife Eilstacia née Ravalee
  • Husband Mionzair Philynn
  • Son Nharaigh
  • Son Shyrrik (Mion’s)
  • Daughter Avae’ess
  • Daughter Evelsa (adopted)
 
  • Father Beluar (deceased)
  • Mother Laerune
   
  • Paternal Uncle Dyffros Donaevel (deceased)
  • Paternal Uncle Elaith Donaevel (deceased)
   

Religious Views

In his family Corellon Larethian and Tethrin Veraldé had been highly venerated, but he didn’t really care about higher powers, until he recently met the drow goddess Eilistraee and has now joined her followers. He also has allegiances to Mystra and Labelas Enoreth.

Social Aptitude

Might come out a bit arrogant, but actually isn’t. Kerymis is proud, but not unforgiving. He keeps etiquette in high regard and dislikes anyone who breaks it without a proper reason. Uncle might seem at a first glance very particular on how certain things are done and inflexible in social situations. He knows this flaw in himself and has tried to shake such old learned traditions from his shoulders, but it has proved out to be a difficult task. Yet, he tries his best to learn and adapt to take people from different background and races into account, sometimes coming out a bit clumsy and racist without meaning it.

Mannerisms

Calm and analytical, which often makes him feel a bit cold to the ones who don’t know his mannerism. Yet he had a soft and big heart for those who suffer or need help, and he is not scared to get his hands dirty.

Hobbies & Pets

Likes to read and write letters. He used to play the violin but hasn’t since the war started as he lost his instrument in all the hassle.   Also got some puppies for his extended family. He has a white familiar hawk called Rua (‘Star’).

Speech

Calm, at times a bit posh British accent. Doesn't usually raise his voice, and in time of anger he prefers to clam up and say nothing instead of shouting to someone.
