Albrecht Krieger
The real Albrecht Krieger
Mar 1, 1990

I have had a long-time fascination with the Middle Ages; one that has only grown over the years. And while I won't claim to know everything, I will always be open to make suggestions on the subject, particulary if I feel that I could help improve the overall RP…Sorry in advance.

Albrecht is known for his narrow feature, creating the look of one not prone to intimidation. But beneath the surface he is wiry and athletic, honed to by years of combat training for efficient precision. All of this is carried by a poorly hidden grace

His fashion shares the precision of his combat style. He keeps himself clean shaven with his medium length hair pulled into a short tail. His clothes are always clean and perfectly tailored, fitting snuggly to follow his movements. He is always armed, generally with his longsword and his dagger.

For the most part, Albrecht comes across as a gentle soul, slow to anger and an easy temperament. However, when violence becomes necessary his demeanor shifts drastically: Krieger takes on a near single minded intensity. His world becomes himself, his sword and his enemy and gods save you if you interfere.

He is unusually familiar with noble etiquette, allowing him to maneuver around the pitfalls of court intrigue. While he asserts that this is only to allow him to deal with potential employers, some cannot help but wonder…

Albrecht's morality can sometimes be difficult to pin down. For the most part, though, it can be summed up as in two ways: degree and necessity. This means he tends to guage right and wrong by whether something needs to be done and how much damage is causes.

Albrecht was born the bastard son of a powerful crimelord in the Egjoran underworld and from an early age he was resistant to his heritage. This led to a number of altercations with his half-brother and his friends. However, though often outnumbered and outsized by his peers, he proved adept at fighting, coming out victorious more often than not. His father had him tutored in dozens of martial arts and by his twenty-third birthday, he had become the organizations top enforcers and assassins.

During his time with the family, he grew close to his half-sister, Ingrid. Being closer in age meant that they had more in common than with the eldest sibling. Many expected the trio to share control of the family, though secretly, Albrecht expected to save his sister from the life.

Several years ago, everything changed. His father gave him an order to kill a watch commander and his family. Albrecht objected and the disagreement went from heated to violent as the enforcer put his dagger through his father's chest. Things escalated as Albrecht was forced to fight his way through the family home. His blade eventually turned against his sister leaving her maimed before her magic forced him to flee.

He traveled north to Adeluna, becoming a mercenary though he follows his own moral code.

Longsword: A light-weight two-handed sword optimized for thrusting through light armor. Both of its edges are also razor sharp. Exceptionally nimble but not reliable against armor.(Sub:Bastard Sword.)

Rondel: A simple, edgeless dagger with a needle sharp point. Can easily slip through the gaps in plate armor.

Bill-Spear: A lightweight polearm with a hooked blade. The hook can be used to catch and trip enemies while a long tip can be thrust into the gaps of armor.

They armor rises over the hip but provides no real protection to the groin. The steel is finished black with brass edging on the poleyn.

Magic Null: Albrecht is completely incapable of using magic; while not wholy understood, the reason is generally assumed to be tied to his body's unnatural tendancy to "break down" magic. This also means that persistent magic cast on him tend to fail prematurely. Even magical objects in his possession lose their potency.(Sub-Dispel)
