His is the body of a prized bull: long, powerful, at-ease. In the way he moves, you can see he does not often flee from anything. He advances; he disdains. He is a pillar of marble cast in ochre light, from his pale feet to the golden fire of his hair. His mouth is most often a crooked arc. His eyes are the restless blue of a tropical sea. They seem always to be looking past you, looking through you. There is a vicious hunger in them you have seen before in wild animals, in storms.

The first time you see him, you have the impression of watching an actor, a painting, a scene. The first time you see him, you think maybe he isn't real. He is not an animal; he is well dressed enough, he is clean, he is without visible warning. But when he smiles, you think he must be lying about something.
|ambitious| |sardonic| |devoted| |merciless|

Here is a well-trained hound, knowing ever when to sit and when to spring, looking ever for an opportunity to bite. He poses no threat unless provoked, harbors no malice for the world at large, but seizes what he wants without question. The force of his hunger rages always beneath the veneer of civility, visible in flashes, betraying his gentleman's facade. It finds its counterbalance only in a sharp and sardonic sense of humor, frequently displayed.
Born the son of Niall Michaelis, devoted father and former member of the Order. Niall was not an old man when Brecken came into the world, but some old evil had compromised his health considerably in the years before. He died long before his time. Brecken was then just a boy, and sent to live with an uncle, his father's brother, a shrewd and scholarly man who had never desired children of his own. In the vast apartments of his uncle's home, Brecken was rendered small and bothersome. He touched things he should not and interrupted the quiet too often. Not because he wanted to — because he never understood his uncle's unspoken rules.

Throughout his childhood, Brecken held the idea of his father as a pinnacle to strive for. No one had ever been angry with Niall; indeed, his friends had cherished him. He had never raised his voice or hand in cruelty. Brecken wished to be like this — beloved. But most of all, without quite understanding it himself, he wished to be the person he needed when he was small. Because he was never welcome in his uncle's study, Brecken instead took naturally to more physical arts. He became quite proficient with a spear, favoring that weapon's reach over the sword, and favoring too the visceral feel of such combat.

He is not quite an honorable man — he strayed often from his chosen path as a boy — but nothing matters to him more than respect of his peers. Nothing, perhaps, save the approval of the gods. It was at the alter young Brecken found a listening ear, and it is only at the alter the man grown is free to speak his truth.
