Overview

Thamian "Hendrick" Everstar, or Thralas Vandree as he was known in the past, is by appearance, about as odd as he is beneath his appearance. His movements stand out as overly emphasized, and fluidly graceful with a hint of arrogance and pride in them.

General Appearance

Thamian is short and slim beneath his clothing, and his muscles can only serve the purpose of speed and finesse. His core, shoulders, and thighs are built and toned to perfection while his biceps are thin and limbs wiry.

Silvery white hair drops unceremoniously to just below Thamian's shoulders, usually kept clean, if not neat. Thamian's eyes are red beneath the deep glow of ki energy which radiates from them. The colour of his skin is rather light in comparison with some Drow, but can best be described as "charcoal grey" or "average".

Thamian wears self-modified robes of Silver Moon, designed for martial arts, which is what he uses them for. His robes are black and navy, although he does not wear these in an attempt to darken his appearance. It's likely a passing fancy for the colors, as he was known in the past to wear the brightest of whites and golds adorning himself.

As for equipment, Thamian keeps his fore-arms and hands wrapped in a pair of bandage-like cloth wrappings. In the darkness these wrappings give off the slightest yellow glow. He wears blue leather boots, designed perhaps to appear stylish, but undeniably well fitted and well outfitted with golden linings and other slightly ornate, but overall high quality stitched inlays. Thamian has a simple, yet somehow grand belt around his waist. The belt which was granted him by the gods of Law when he reached a mindset reflecting the grand master monk, and which symbolizes just that. Adorning Thamian's pinkies are numerous rings. Usually four to five enchanted rings on each of these fingers. On Thamian's left ring finger is a beautiful diamond ring, which emits the fairest of white light.

Thamian's body is adorned with the numerous battle scars that his warrior life has granted him. Standing out in particular among these scars are: the word "Vandree" carved across the pectorals on his chest in the common tongue in bold, cruelly carved slashing marks that look to have cut deep. Thamian has a bludgeon scar on his left shoulder, the result of it being entirely crushed at one point, and a great slashing scar above his right knee on his thigh, a blow that looks at a glance to be crippling without a doubt.

Thamian has but one tattoo. Across the back of his shoulders, the word "Shame" is written in ornately dark blood red, unfading Drow letters. If examined closely, it is revealed that the same word in the same pattern is scarred deeply into the flesh beneath.

Personality

Thamian's public persona is giddy and not unlike a school boy who wishes to show off his numerous abilities and tricks to the public. He smiles often enough, and seems occasionally to either lose himself in thought or decide to attempt looking angsty, staring down at the ground or off into space as everyone tends to do from one time to another.

Those who know Thamian well know that there is far more to him than this outlying personality. He is fun to be around, but knows the seriousness of the world very well. Better than most. He can be trusted with most things, and rarely does he not live up to his friends' expectations that he is just, noble, kindhearted, righteous, honest, and wise to a degree.

Those who have seen Thamian's other side know also of the horrors which he is capable of, due to his upbringing in the cities of Menzoberranzan and Udos Dro'Xun as a Noble of the Lolthite Drow House Vandree.

Thamian adheres to a set of principles which he values, at this point in his life, above all others. Endurance, Resilience, Survival, Life, Happiness, Anger. Endurance and resilience symbolize his stance towards evil. He does not allow himself to give up. The only things that will stop him are death or physical restraint. Survival and life represent Thamian's stance towards everything. Suicide, in Thamian's eyes, is the ultimate cowardly escape from the realities fo the world. Happiness and anger would seem to contradict eachother immensely. Thamian's teachings are that there are three base states of emotion. Happiness, anger, and sorrow. Thamian is capable of feeling sorrow, but does not use sorrow as he finds the emotion to be weak and mostly useless in comparison to the powerful inspiration that happiness and anger lend him.

  • Met Anabeth Strongsoul. Developed meeting times to exchange surface for Underdark information.
