I've moved related profiles to this thread, as noted by the changed title. These are basically my "main" characters that all share the same plotline. This will also be my story topic for my RP characters, so I will make plot posts here for character development.
Rest of the profiles are in the subject line above are in the later posts below
Nickname: Rodo, Kyro, Kyr
Full Name: Kyrodo Rivare Blackheart
Species: Black Wolf
Build: Average weight and muscular formation.
Appearance: -Black main fur. White fur on the tips of the ears and tail. Fiery orange eyes that glow like embers.
Normally wears black trousers and a blue trench coat.
Acrobatic and highly adept in terms of sword play. His endurance and vitality is also nothing to scoff at. When it comes to close combat, he can be quite the formidable warrior.
He is faster than most at running, but not fast enough to start bragging about it.
His aim is about average but not the best, so he tends to avoid using long-range weapons. If the battlements are short on archers, he will still take a position if need be.
He is adventurous and loves to explore the unknown. His excitement is stemmed from the books his read from the Abbey library during his early seasons at Redwall.
He can be extremely tolerant around obnoxious or nearly hostile behavior, but will not let other walk over him.
He is not afraid to enter front lines in battle, and is prepared to take arrows and sacrifice himself for his fellow Redwallers. If they must face their last stand, he will be more than happy to take down as many vermin as he can down with him.
His leadership skills are limited. As he sees it, it is far easier to execute and follow directions than it is to create them. He can still communicate and provide logical advice given the current conditions.
Possessions: -Katana with a black and blue hilt and a black sheathe.
Combat knife. Utilized for a quick secondary weapon, and sometimes for small practical uses.
Background: One of three siblings: Kyrodo, Kadan, and Talina Blackheart.
He came to Redwall when he was extremely young, during a harsh blizzard on a winter's day. The poor pup was found freezing and close to death when he was around four years old.
What became of his family is still unknown, as his memory only dates back to his acceptance as a Redwaller. As he was growing up, he spent most of his time reading various books in the library, and playing swords among other games with the other dibbuns.
The abbey suffered several vermin attacks as he was growing up, to which his involvement was minimal for being in his younger seasons. He grieved alongside his friend Leonid over the loss of his father who was also the abbey blacksmith. As they reached their teen years, he fell victim to several of Leonid's psychotic berserk vermin-hating attacks, and was saved several times by Freedom who had been their close companion, and since, Leonid's patient overseer. Were it not for her, he would have been banished from the Abbey to protect its inhabitants. After Leonid successfully got over his attacks for the most part, he presented Kyrodo with his father's prized katana on his fourteenth birthday. He explained that it was a sign of recovery from his father's death, and a gift for remaining by his side despite his earlier condition. They were also sparring partners in their younger seasons, and Kyrodo had wishes to become a Redwall defender.
He and Leonid were able to put their combat practice to use in future vermin raids, where the grandeur of war was quickly disillusioned and replaced by it's realistic horrors of blood and death, as well as the risk of having their lives cut short. They survived nonetheless, and proceeded to perfect their combat prowess through intense practice. They also began to take a more strategic view on the abbey defenses and in battle overall.
At 17, he gathered survival necessities and proceeded into Mossflower to visit all the areas he's read about in his earlier youth, and to see the world outside the Abbey in general. This was at the dismay of Freedom since they had always been by each other's sides since childhood.
At 19, he returns home to the Abbey after stumbling upon a vermin camp preparing and attack on Redwall. He runs into a rather hostile situation with Freedom which took several weeks to resolve peacefully. The hostile situation has to deal with his disappearance for over two years.
As they are recovering from the attack, two travelers make a stop at Redwall consisting of a white wolf and a black wildcat. They introduce themselves as Kadan and Red respectively. They appear to be innocent friendly, but they are also planning their own attack on the Abbey while Redwall's defenses are weakened. They scout the Abbey's interior and secretly relay information to their troops under the cover of night. Kadan also observes Kyrodo with interest, realizing that he is indeed his long lost brother.
As the vermin invasion commences, Kadan stabs Kyrodo in the chest as he reveals that they are siblings. He curses Kyrodo for being a pathetic good beast and throws him over the battlements. The invasion greatly cripples the abbey but ultimately fails. The two travelers are nowhere to be seen.
The attackers numbers were crippled almost beyond repair, and they were not expected return any time soon. Being a miraculous mouse healer, Freedom is able to revive Kyrodo to good health, but a scar remains.
Every now and then he leaves for his own adventures, but for the most part he remains at the Abbey as a wall guard for about a year (First RP availability span). After suffering constants recursions of bad dreams concerning Kadan Blackheart attempting to murder him, he decides to leave the safety of the Abbey once more to seek out his brother and bring an end to the nightmares, one way or another (Secondary RP availability span).
