Appearance
Kaladin has the traditional build of a soldier, broad chested with layers of muscle rippling underneath lightly tanned skin earned from years of toiling with various weapons masters. Dark hair graces his head in gentle waves that he brushes over to the right to keep the hair out of his eyes. Speaking of his eyes Kaladin suffers from heterochromia, A condition in which his eyes are different colors, in his case his left eye is green while his right eye is the icy blue of his family. Do to a chance encounter with a goddess Kal has lost his left arm and has had it replaced with an enchanted metal arm.
Personality
Earlier in his life Kaladin was considered a bit to formal and slightly timid in nature. A strange trait for someone who was to become a soldier. Still his time in Northhaven has turned him into a bitter and spiteful man. Quick to insult and even quicker to anger the man Kaladin has become is the mirror opposite of the young royal guard from Northhaven. The loss of his son and childhood love has warped his persona, he spends most of his time in solitude and has great disdain for magical entities and supposed "deities"
History
The Rickshire family estates are a poor noble house in south east Northwind. The family had once owned several promising Iron mines in years past however over mining by Kaladin's grandfather left the mines barren before their time. Kaladins father Martin and mother Annette both were original bluebloods though neither family was of particular note in the upper society. Growing up Kaladin was most often the forgotten member of the family, the middle child as well as the third son he was often left to his own devices while his father groomed his eldest brother to bring new wealth and authority to the Rickshire name. He did show an aptitude for swordsmanship however and convinced his father to allow him to train with the Storm Guard. Soon Kaladin began dueling the lesser sons of the surrounding noble families who also had enlisted and winning, gaining a reputation for himself as a duelist. Eldest sons began wishing to test their mettle against him and talks about that "Rickshire boy with the strange eyes" began to make waves in the upper nobility. About two years after enlisting Kaladin and his squad had been sent to be to escort one of the royal children on her travels through the country. The job had been suppose to be a simple one, something to get the unit's feet wet. The occasional scrape with a bandit or two but nothing life threatening. Little did Kal realize that this assignment would change his life forever. First of note was that he had been assigned to escort Violet Hawthorne, the two had been fast friends in their youth. Despite Kaladin's family not being the most prominent nowadays the princess was one of the few people that treated Kaladin as if he was somebody. They spent their days running around the capital while his father was on errands with the court though they say each other infrequently due to the costs of travel from the Rickshire's remote estates. Had Kal been more astute he may have noticed Violet's slight flirtations as they grew older yet even if he had would he really have done? What could Kaladin, who was not even the heir to his own family's poor finances, offer to the princess. Once he had enlisted into the Storm Guard he was shipped off to begin his training, not even given the chance to say good bye to Violet. Fate seemed to have a funny way of reuniting them. It had been awhile since they had last seen each other and Kaladin now felt awkward talking with her. She was no longer a childhood friend, but the Princess of Northwind and his charge. Most of the journey had been just as expected, uneventful to the point of boring the princess spending most of her time in her carriage with her handmaids. The soldiers had grown lax in their watchfullness, and the enemy took this opportunity to strike. Arrows suddenly thudded into the carriage as a group of enemy soldiers rushed the retinue and several members of Kal's squad were dead before they even realized what was happening. Swords clashed and the death shouts of men echoed as Kaladin's unit dwindled, the lack of real combat experience as well as superior numbers crippling them. Kaladin fought like a demon, building a steady pile of bodies as men tried to take over the carriage. There were too many of them, despite his skill he would slip up eventually. He needed to get the princess out of there. Pulling her out of the carriage they retreated into the woods, eventually losing their pursuers within the dark forest. Several days later stumbling upon a small hamlet tired and dirty they managed to procure horses and directions, in which Kaladin was then able to escort Violet safely to the capital. Impressed with Kaladin's courage as well the amount of skill it must have taken to get away from the attack Kaladin was offered the opportunity to go through the portal as a member of the Storm Guard. They needed skilled and loyal men to go over and help settle the new world and Kal seemed to fit the bill. He dutifully accepted the offer and made his preparations, joining the rest of the second wave through the portal.
