Name: Alaric Rainecourt-Lee
Birth Season: Spring
Citizen Status: Duke
Weight: 165 lbs
Body Description: Alaric has beautiful brown skin, cropped curly hair, and his facial hair is perfectly trimmed and always present. You'll never see him with a fully shaved face. He has dark brown eyes with expressive eyebrows and beautiful dark lashes. He often looks rather stern, his shoulders and chest lifted with the weight of his title and responsibilities. He is not often particularly approachable but can be rather fun and enjoyable around close friends and people who have earned his friendship. He is usually dressed in all the finery of a well-respectable duke, but is incredibly fit and will go shirtless when doing physical activity.
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Reputation: Alaric is the responsible one...mostly. He takes his role as heir seriously and hates to let people down, particularly his family. He expects a lot of his siblings and hopes they will live up to their titles.
While he went through a more rebellious stage in his teen years, he was forced to grow out of it when his father grew ill and he turned his attention more to his family and his responsibilities. He tends to have a lot of stressors on his shoulders that can make him a bit distracted or even testy. He gets his frustrations out through boxing and, occasionally, in brothels or friendly acquaintances though that that is more rare these days, at least more rare than it used to be.
He is polite but can be prideful and typically avoids being charming when he is at upper class gatherings where he knows his title and position in life, as well as his devilishly good looks, make him quite the catch. He is used to seeing young ladies, or their mothers, whispering about him as he passes in hopes of arranging a marriage with their daughters. He will oblige a couple of dances at these events but never gives more than that. No one has yet snagged him up into a marriage and he prefers it that way. Marriage comes with too much risk, too much loss and pain, it is a life he fears more than he cares to admit.
Combat Experience: Alaric did all the proper training that is expected of a duke beginning when he was a boy and trained with many of the best but his favorite was always with his father, Prince Lionel. He is skilled with swords as well as a bow but found his true delight in boxing which he trains in regularly.
Family: Prince Lionel Rainecourt - Father | Duchess Jessa Rainecourt-Lee - Mother (deceased) | Younger Sibling | Younger Sibling | Jovie Rainecourt-Lee - Younger Sister (deceased) | Cousins: Romilly Rainecourt-Mikaels | Second Cousins: Cassian Rainecourt, Mihail Rainecourt-Blackwater, Victor Rainecourt-Blackwater, Marjolaine Rainecourt-Teake (by marriage)
With a prince for a father Alaric wanted for nothing in his life though much was wanted from him. Born as a twin, his brother never made it out of the womb alive. As the eldest he was the heir and a lot of responsibility and expectations rested on his shoulders. He had all the best tutors in every subject and as he grew his lessons grew with him. Living outside of Loren, he learned to manage the duchy and to take care of the people who depended on their family to grow and thrive.
His youngest sister was born when Alaric was 10 and his mother, Jessa Rainecourt-Lee, died from complications from childbirth. In his grief, the years that followed were a bit of a rebellious stage. His focus on his studies waned and he spent more time fighting and getting into various spots trouble. As he grew he learned how to be charming, how to win over a girl, how to steal a kiss and more. He became quite skilled at it and rumors began to spread, earning him the well deserved label as a rake or a cad. Though he was always very careful. After losing a twin and his mother dying after giving birth, he was terrified to do that to a woman and was determined never to put someone's life at risk in that way.
However, when his father, Prince Lionel, grew ill around the time that Alaric was in his early twenties. He dropped his rebellious nature, for the most part, and refocused on what was important in his life. Alaric had a hand in setting up a marriage for his youngest sister, Jovie, but she grew ill and died before the marriage could be realized. Alaric had tried to find someone gifted to heal his baby sister but was refused. Upon her death they also discovered that she had been in the early stages of a pregnancy. That fact was never public knowledge but it only solidified Alaric's fear and determination to never have children of his own.
