A lot can be said about Zeref Adthorn, for he is a very social man. However, the company he usually prefers is by women. He’s known as a womanizer and isn’t afraid to show it. Even if he isn’t able to spend the night with a woman -especially if she is betrothed or wed, for he will not lay with another man’s woman- he does take pleasure in flirting with her just to get under their man’s skin.
However, if one looks past his flirtatious nature, and even manages to see through his male pride, they will find that he is actually a very caring and sensitive man. Though he rarely allows himself to get involved in real relationships, whenever he does one will find he is very, very loyal, as well as protective, and possessive to an annoying point. But he means well, and is one whom will spoil his lady if he ever truly fell in love. History
Zeref was born and raised in a wealthy home of nobility, also known as the Adthorn family, somewhere outside of Revaliir. In that land, there were three major noble families, his of course being one, the other being the Feynrand family, whilst the last was the Lockheart family. These three families had very strict rules, especially when it came to carrying on the family lines, which was very important there. If a child from one of the families failed to marry and have a child, they bring shame to their family, labeled as failures and disappointments, and sometimes are even disowned.
Zeref was the only child the Lady of the Adthorn family was ever able to bear before she grew terribly ill. The illness that had befallen on her had left her bedridden for years and years, so Zeref was raised by Nannies, and never really got a chance to know his mother. And when he reached the age of four, the illness claimed his mother’s life, and his father was forced to remarry so that they could have more children to help carry on the family line, in case Zeref failed to do so. However, his new mother was incapable of bearing any children.
It wasn’t until Zeref was ten when he learned that, upon his birth, his mother and father had arranged for him to marry one of the daughters from the Feynrand family. But there was a girl whom he had a severe crush on, and she was none other than Nelanna Ray of the Lockheart family, whom later changed her maiden name.
But his family would not allow marriage between the Lockhearts and Adthorns, simply because they would be granted more money from the wealthier family, the Feynrands. It was better for business. However, as Zeref and Nelanna got older, the two took completely different paths. Nelanna was broken-hearted because of her elder sister being disowned, and so she ran away. Whilst Zeref stayed to carry on his family line out of fear of disappointing and shaming his family. So he married the eldest daughter in the Feynrand family, his father retired and handed down the Adthorn land and belongings, naming Zeref the Master of the house, with his new bride as the head Lady. Unfortunately, though, he never grew to truly love his wife, but cared about her and gave her the best of everything as if he did. It was a loveless relationship, for both parties, but they dealt with it because of their surprisingly close friendship.
For years the two were married and continued business with the other two families, yet, they never had a child. And, to their dismay, his wife suddenly grew ill and passed away, just like his mother had. Though he held no romantic feelings for her, he was absolutely heartbroken by her death. Zeref never remarried, and failed to carry on his family line. Because of this, he had shamed his family and was forced to hand the family belongings and land to a cousin of his, whom was already married and had successfully carried on the family line with children of their own.
He had hit the bottom, and now had nowhere to go. So he left the land and took up being a merchant to make money, since he no longer had any, with hopes of buying himself a new home. The job had him traveling across the land and even into neighboring lands, the business not making him very handsome rewards. Until he met a wealthy businessman whom made him an offer. If Zeref became his partner in his weapon industry -helping him sell the weapons, help make contracts with other industries and nobility, as well as transporting the goods- he would pay Zeref a very handsome price and help him make a new start in life. Zeref, of course, accepted. After years of working as the man’s trusted partner, Zeref became far more successful and made much more money than the three noble families he grew up knowing.
Eventually the man grew too old to stay in charge and decided to retire, handing the business down to Zeref, making him the head. To get more customers, Zeref expanded the extent of business by having smaller branches built in neighboring lands. That way they could attract new customers, further and wider. Doing this made the business an even bigger success. One of the lands which his business reached was Revaliir, where he eventually decided to have the main building built after finding he held a great fondness for the land.
There, he had his own mansion built, and continued to lead the business, and a very successful life. But despite being the head of such a major business, he has a lot of free time, allowing him to adventure across Revaliir.
Zeref’s home is a massive stone mansion known as Adthorn Manor, located in Endapano. It looks much like a small castle with its architecture, and is treated as if it was. Though it’s surrounded by forests, a great distance separates the building from most of the trees, with beautiful, well kept gardens, hedges, and stone paths.
Inside are many halls, massive living areas and feasting areas, a couple of kitchens, chandeliers in many rooms and a large number of bedrooms. It even has it’s own ballroom, where big parties can be held. A massive chandelier hangs from the ceiling, lighting the entire ballroom, and reflecting dimly on the beautiful tile floor. A few large, white pillars stand in rows, reaching the tall ceiling, each with red drapes hanging down them. Red drapes also hang on the walls, curving down and up again in a U-like manner. One wall is made entirely out of many decorative windows, whilst on the opposite side of the room is a set of two flights of stairs, each opposite of each other and curving to meet in the center of the room. There lies large double doors; this is where the host of the parties makes their appearance.
All of the furniture in the mansion is vintage, and clearly expensive, with the tables, chairs, wardrobes, beds, etc. made of fine and polished dark wood. Beautiful drapes cover all the windows, no matter how large or small, during the night and are opened every morning by the maids and butlers which keep the entire place clean and cared for. It’s a three story building with a large attic used as an extra floor, which is also kept clean. Beneath the building lies a cellar, as well as a basement, and extra bedrooms where the Servants’ quarters are. And, the servants, are all taken care of well and treated with kindness, this Zeref makes sure of.
