APPEARANCE Gem can be described as his mother’s son. He inherited the beauty the Qi’ora woman had, with some added boon from his father. Most would say, though, that he looks more like his mother than anything else. He is above average height at five foot ten, though he is somewhat smaller than the lumbering Lotharro that call Uthaldria their home land. He is also not as muscular, lithe and slender. If one so chose, lifting him would be not a difficult task. Most times, other than when working, he is leaning on any nearby structure or person, though the person would have to be someone he knows. His complexion is clear, in some lights the color of clay. Soft, dark jewel undertones highlight his skin tone.

His face, without a doubt, is a lovely sight to behold. It’s rectangularly shaped, with soft edges that create the urge to touch. His features settle on him just fine, evenly spaced. His eyes are almond shaped, slightly hooded. His irises are often found to be a mahogany brown, sometimes a brown so light they could be grey. While his lashes are not long, they are many and neatly curled. His lips, arguably the most enticing feature, are lush and pink, almost like a peony. In his younger years, Gem was forced into amicable dress-up games that often left his lips smeared with an array of colors. Even then, there was a quaint fascination with his lips, which he has persisted in disregarding. Instead, he prefers to keep his attentions to a more manageable aspect of his appearance: his hair. Every few seasons or sometimes a full arc, he shaves his head and allows his hair to grow anew. Most are unsure of whether or not he does this simply because he does not wish to maintain it, or if it’s a tribute to his mother. Regardless, his hair is usually cut short and seemingly well groomed. When he does grow it out, it can be anywhere between a curly clipper cut to a thick pompadour. But, most times, it’s a close fade.


Gem’s voice has been noted as velvety and soothing. It does not go without notice that when speaking to certain people, his voice tends to deepen. This is usually in the presence of the Lotharro customers, and pretty much the majority of the populace of Uthaldria. His voice could be described as a tenor, though as mentioned before he can dip towards a baritone if he thinks it necessary. His words are generally clear unless intentional slurred or drunk--but neither are common, so it’s generally easy to understand him.

scars : 
none at the moment
injuries : none at this moment
tattoos : Gem has a few tattoos that cover his forearms. One is floral and the other resembles a lion of some sort. Another covers the index finger of his right hand, a smaller version of the lion. There isn’t any marvelous story to tell about them, although they do appear blue on his skin for the most part.


PERSONALITY Seemingly a product of the environment he grew up in, Geminius has developed an emotional intelligence that’s quite something. He’s fairly adept at reading facial expressions and emotional cues, as well as navigating tense emotional situations. However, this only seems to apply to others, and not himself. He’s always been bad at properly dealing with his own emotions. In most cases, he merely ignores what he’s feeling or keeps it bottled up as a constant annoyance. His inability to deal with his own emotions can lead to some...not so favorable moments of vulnerability. And in a place like Uthaldria, vulnerability is not something Gem wishes to show often. To make up for this, Gem can be quite somewhat cunning. He’s developed evasive maneuvers for any situation that might put him in a tight spot, or draw attention to any present vulnerabilities. Of course, he isn’t the greatest at this. Maybe he could improve with a little bit of gambling; his father already remarks that he might be quite good at it.

By all reports, Gem can be overdramatic. He tends to exaggerate often, hyperbolizing small details. It can be problematic when he makes little problems bigger than they seem, especially coupled with that pesky inability to address his own emotional shortcomings. Rather than small hurdles to overcome, his problems begin to seem like treacherous mountains to climb. He could be better off not thinking about it, in his opinion. And with his overly dramatic nature comes big gestures, even while he speaks. His hands are like dancers that follow the beat of his words, accompanying whatever it is he has to say. It’s also not uncommon to see people ducking away from him because he forgets he’s holding a knife in one or both of his hands. According to a number of people, he tends to forget often.

Maybe it was because his mother shielded him, maybe it’s due to some selective obliviousness, but Geminius can somehow be described as innocent. He knows things, but then he doesn’t completely know them. Even with the occupational choice of his mother and the story behind his conception, he’s still innocent to the point where one would question whether his origins were truly in Uthaldria. To this, he has no response more adequate than to direct them to where had previously lived, which would be the House of the Rigid Rooster. It seems to shut people up well enough for him to walk away. But, his innocence is not seen as a hinderance, not really. Where others are more concerned with the carnal aspects of the city, Gem is free to do his work and be about as happy as someone hiding from their emotions can be.

If there is anything that gem fears most in life, it is being useless. Being unable to aid anyone for any reason leaves him feeling a little less complete. He can certainly be called a busy-body for this reason alone, and his intentions are not entirely altruistic. Everyone gets that warm, fuzzy feeling when they help people. Now imagine that magnified by ten; that’s the level Gem is on. Unfortunately, this also plays into his tumultuous emotional affairs ( those darn emotions! ), in that seeing others happy provides him with a sense of peace. For this reason alone, it’s often that he makes himself available to help others in any way he can. He will go so far as to inconvenience himself simply to help another. It can be detrimental to his physical and mental health when these actions fall through, and then it’s all up to chance from there.


HISTORY
Image
Despite some rumors, Gem was born in Uthaldria. His mother, Myi, had been born in the city as well. Though, her life did not turn out the way her parents might have suggested. Rather than take up apprenticeship with an artisan, she took to the pleasure houses. She was a beauty to behold--something she passed on to her only child, thus far--and so decided that there would be no harm in utilizing this beauty. Pleasing others, in itself, was an art to her. And thus, she found herself in the House of the Rigid Rooster.

She was welcomed with open arms and eager teachers. There were no problems in the following arcs that presented themselves, and even if they did, Myi moved right through them. The only one she would never be able to do so with was Ad’nola. The Sev’ryn was insufferable, even if his original intentions were not what they became. He wanted a child without the attachment of marriage, and he chose Myi to be the donor. It wasn’t hard to see why anyone would choose her, really. It was mostly a wonder no one had thought to choose her beforehand. She had seen countless others be chosen for it, but never once had she truly thought she would join them. The idea of motherhood had been far from her imagination and she was determined to keep it that way.

But Ad’nola was persistent. He wanted Myi, and Myi alone. Not in any romantic sense, of course; he found her to be the most pleasing and thus assumed their child would be much the same. He didn’t care which gender they would be, so long as he could call himself a father. Attachments like a wife were trivial at best, and hindered his ability to grow and develop. At least, that was how Ad’nola started. What changed his mind was Gem’s arrival into the world.

Rather than want only the child, the Sev’ryn wanted the mother as well. He attempted to persuade her leave the city with him, take their child to Desnind. Myi refused, adamantly. It went on until Gem had reached an arc in age, the day he would be named by his father. A constant back and forth that often left both parties tired and rueful. Ad’nola disappeared for a full cycle before returned with renewed vigor after Geminius’ naming day. He had come up with a compromise that he felt would work out.

It was easy enough to explain. The man would have time with his son and mother of his child, but she would not need to leave work. It was the matter of funds and a timetable that were the real issue. By the time Geminius was five, his father had saved enough for weekly visits and outings to see he and his mother. Those first seasons were shaky and apprehensive, but eventually they feel into the routine. It was almost like they were really a family, a husband with his wife and child.

There were times, however, when it would be the boy and his father alone. It was there that they spent the day gorging on sweets and delicious foods. When it was done, he’d be returned to the Rigid Rooster and sent promptly to the kitchen, away from the workings of the pleasure house. It wasn’t for lack of trying that he’d stay in the lobby. He’d be swarmed by customers curious to guess as to whose child he was, only to be escorted away.

The kitchen, as it were, became like a second bedroom. If he was not with his mother or in their room, he would be there. If he was not with his father, he would be there. He’d be occupied by the cooks, talking to him ass he worked. When they were short on hands, he would step up to the plate and take action. It was where he first learned to cook. It complimented the sweet memories of the stolen bits his mother would take to simply hold him or check on him, the days he would walk hand in hand with his father in rare moments of idleness.

And, if he has his way, he’ll find a new kitchen to call his own.

HOUSING Geminius resides in a quaint 400 sq ft apartment in the Steps of Valor. He is afford very basic furnishings of a bed, two chairs, a table, two knives, a set of six plates, a chest, and a fireplace. He doesn’t stay home often enough to keep a pet or plants, and thus has neither.

The protection extends to all other individuals that should chance upon the dream, though the marked is at liberty to shut out or expel unwanted visitors at their discretion. Only those possessing a mark from Kielik of a higher caliber than the dreamer's Nyvora level, particularly potent entities in Emea or Kielik himself can override this protection.
