||Sergeant Hannibal Blackwood (Ebony) is observant, adventurous and coarse. But what would you expect from somebody with his past.
He was born and grew up in a fairly rich family in a large port, trained and became a Sommerlundian knight. He has a successful career and lived happily until about 11 years ago, at that point life changed.
He accidentally maimed somebody during a joust with a wealthy noble, the kind of noble that does not take kindly to any slight. This caused him to lose his commission and the only way he could make end meet was to head for a life of crime, assisting guild masters with skilled, hired muscle. Against all odds he had to survive in a cruel world. But with his strength and capability, he managed to conquer all fears and doubts, survive everything and start a new life. This has turned him into the man he is today.
Powerless to change the past, he now works perfecting skills and talents. By doing so, he hopes to find some form of redemption; to be released of the haunting memories and finally find the tranquillity he had before.
He is 6'2" and weighs in at 220lbs. He keeps himself fit with a 15 mile run a day, often in full kit, and trains for at least 2 hours in the evening on martial skills and tactics. His build reflects this, and he can get away with his hard drinking and eating. (the drinking can become too much sometimes and he enters a black mood that can last a few days).
Chestnut, curly hair hangs over a craggy, lived-in face. Hazel eyes, set narrow within their sockets, watch loyally out over the team as they work. The scar stretching from just under the left eye, running towards the other eye and ending on his upper lip, leaves a bittersweet memory of a former live.
There's something fascinating about him, perhaps it's a feeling of shame or perhaps it's simply his unfortunate past. But nonetheless, people tend to wish to get to know him better, while awkwardly avoiding talking about his past.
