[Basic Information]

Character Name: Saladin SanJar
Character Age: 31
Gender: Male
Birthday: December 20th, 210 AF
Home Castle/City: Susa, Ahestere
House: SanJar

-------------------------------

[Appearance]

Saladin is a massive man, he towers over almost virtually everyone and carries with him a insane amount of muscle mass upon his thick boned frame. Within the SanJar smiths, it was a joke about the challenge it is to create Saladin his armor. Yet due to his size, his physical strength is unmatched. He is well-trained in measures of endurance, even if his top speed has room for improvement; but for his size, he is surprisingly agile.

Not particularly good looking, the plain Saladin has a scar running down his face over his left cheek. The scar was the result of a speartip that sliced his face, and almost left him blind. However, he recovered from the round with only the scar remaining. His body is littered with familiar scars, all of which has healed fairly well. Still from time to time, one or two aches. His dark eyes and short black hair complete the picture of this supposed gentle giant.


-------------------------------

[Personality]

*Saladin is a soldier, through and through. While no one would consider Saladin intelligent, Saladin simply preferred to obey orders. While many in the nobility often have hidden agendas and plans, Saladin doesn’t take part. Saladin simply does what is asked of him, that is it. Saladin is loyal to the House of Saladin, and that loyalty will never be broken. That loyalty is also noted several times in the stories of Saladin in combat, refusing to ever leave the side of his cousin, Arash. During Arash’s leave in order to join a mercenary band, and battle against the Maélazan, Saladin accompanied him. Though his loyalty isn’t just restricted to Arash, but to Cyrus as much. Saladin would do everything he is asked of, no matter how brutal or heartless.

Saladin is absolutely in control at all times of himself. Saladin does not give into his emotions; instead he simply keeps them separate from his actions. Saladin’s mind is always thinking of a strategic advantage within a fight, but not within the arena of politics. In the heat of combat, he is a great leader, always executing orders from above but also knowing how to eradicate fear within his men by leading by example. It might appear to many that Saladin is without fear. Saladin doesn’t believe in the word ‘mercy’. However, his brand of ruthlessness isn’t malicious but simply cold and mechanical.*

Perhaps the biggest flaw of Saladin was the fact he’s utterly selfless, and was willing to sacrifice it all for the House SanJar. However, Saladin believed this was his duty as a member of the outer branches to be such. Yet, as of late, Saladin started to question the honor in such an outlook. After several tasks which he deplored greatly, Saladin lost faith in his house and started to second guess everything. This broke him up inside, doubting his entire existence. In an uncharacteristic move, he turned his back upon his house and left to redeem himself, some way somehow. He has been overwhelmed with a sense of guilt for several recent actions. To some, it almost seemed as if Saladin had abandoned his will to live.


-------------------------------

[History]

Saladin was risen from birth in order to be an obedient servant to the main branch. His father was strict and his lessons were brutal and taught him how to be completely disciplined. Saladin never blinked throughout his development, as he took the duty thrust upon him with all of his being. There wasn’t the kindness of a mother, as Jinan ensured there were distance between his eldest son and his mother. However, Saladin didn’t resent this. Through and through, Saladin embraced the warrior lifestyle and grew. As a result, Saladin became the prefect soldier, with incredible martial skills and survival instincts while at the same time he lacked the ambitions that could lead to power struggle. Saladin believed his place was to be determined by simply hierarchy.*
At a young age, his size was extraordinary. In his mid-teens, Saladin was already trusted with accompanying his younger cousins. Most believed he was full-grown male, not pubescent teen. In the meantime, his training continued. There were no dreams of political gain. There were no such experiences as first love or imagination, simply protecting and training. Saladin thought such a simple life was enjoyable. Saladin’s immediate family was unscathed by the plague while several in other branches of the house suffered losses in the year AF 235. Saladin proclaimed his father, he wished he could do more.

At the request of Cyrus, Saladin followed his cousin Arash in his decision to join a mercenary band. Saladin. The campaign against the Maélazan was expected to be compose of only a several year. However, campaign meant much stronger resistance and the conflict drew onto five years. In the countless battles over those five years, Saladin finally was able to apply his years of training to the battle field. This final step has made Saladin ever stronger. Tales spread of his ferocity in battle and his tenacity to protect his cousin, Arash. In this environment, Saladin matured as a soldier and became a hardened warrior.

After five years absent from Susa, Saladin returned home, hoping his skills will be use of his family. Almost immediately, Saladin was dispatched to abduct Lady Abrielle Laroche from Cnaith during the time of its annual festival. Upon his mission's success, he soon after killed Lord Hakim Linnet while he was a guest of the SanJar House. Shortly after, he departed for Lismore, where he confessed his crimes to Lord Linnet and notably deflected. His future right now is very unclear.



-------------------------------

[Writing Sample]

The ambush occurred during the course of the night. The guards alarmed, but by the time, Saladin rose, the Maélazan were already within the encampment. Saladin did not bother to put on his armor, as he did not have time. Instead, he lifted his curved axe and tossed around his waist, his sheathed scimitar. Screams and battle cries filled the once silent night. Saladin looked over at Arash, who was quickly arming himself to fight too.

“My kin, protect yourself. Come out only when you’re ready, until then, I shall hold them off,” Saladin said. The statement was neither an order nor a suggestion, but fell somewhere between. Saladin emerged from their tent with his axe in hand. The campfire lit, the scene was definitely gruesome. Within seconds, a spear shot towards him but Saladin sidestepped the thrust and grabbed the spear by its base. Saladin pulled in the attacker with his immense strength, and with his axe, drove the weapon into the shoulder of the attacker. The spear came easy, the attacker dropped to his knees. Saladin quickly drove the crescent axe into the side of the neck before dropping the spear. The spear was worthless in such a situation; Saladin did not comprehend why Maélazan would bring such weaponry to a sneak attack. However, most the remaining enemy were inexperienced in the principles of warfare.

Saladin turned and that instance, another spear headed towards his head. Saladin felt the spearhead kiss his cheek, spraying a crimson blast from his face. Saladin stared at the attacker, reaching for his sword. Saladin tossed the axe towards the attacker, the attacker avoided the large projectile, quickly moved on Saladin but before the attacker was aware, Saladin had his scimitar out. A quick slash disarmed the man with his sword. The Maélazan man reacted to the pain running up from his wrist, the blood pouring out from the wound. Saladin raised the blade, sharpened only hours before, and swung it down with all his might upon the shoulder of his opponent. Saladin finished dismembered the man.*

Saladin scanned the scene for the next combatant, but Saladin noticed the battle was over. Maélazan noticed their skills were not match for this outfit. Saladin turned to Arash who made it outside the door. Arash looked around, ready for battle, donning his armor. Arash glanced at Saladin, did not blink at the amount of blood dripping from his relative’s face. Arash simply asked, “Sure, you had to have all the fun.”

“I only wished to ensure you were prepared. My life is expendable compares to yours,” Saladin solemnly answered. Arash shook his head, knowing he wasn’t going to get much life out of Saladin. Saladin returned to the camp in order to tend to his own wound why Arash lifted up the axe, briefly scanning the bloodied mess Saladin left behind.*
