Appearance:

Arasmes' appearance is striking - deliberately so. His slight frame looks almost elven, and his pale skin and long dead white hair draw the eye. His colours are rust-red, white and bronze.

In a social setting he will be wearing an infantry officer's uniform with a broad brimmed rust-red hat; white shirt, white gloves, rust-red trousers with white piping, rust-red shoes and a rust-red double breasted long coat with white piping and bronze buttons. His belt holds a stake instead of a sword.

If he is on business he will be wearing his armour; intricate interlocking and overlapping plates of bronze. His gloves are replaced by leather gloves with bronze plates. The left also carries rust-red steel spikes over the knuckles, and the right is designed to leave the palm bare so as to reveal a red skull shaped birthmark.

Story:
Arasmes is minor nobility in Geb, and as such has a duty to Geb. He fulfills that duty by helping to maintain the Dead Laws, following in the footsteps of his mother the Vampire Izora. He helps to track down those dead who break the Dead Laws and go rogue. Currently he is tracking down a rogue vampire. (Obviously he doesn’t expect to take it down by himself, he would call for backup... but if he can bring it down without calling in his mother it would be a significant feather in his cap.) He has been tracking the rogue for six months now, and some signs pointed to the rogue coming through Sandpoint, and no indication that it left. People are distrustful of him here, and he could really use some allies, friends, or at least good PR.

Personality:
Arasmes is loyal to friends and family. He is true to his word. He delights in decadence in his free time, but is disciplined when on duty. Arasmes strongly believes in Geb, and has a tendency to think most people outside of Geb are too soft, especially on those he thinks of as Chattel. Still, he does his best to respect the law and customs of the regions he enters, even when they are obviously inferior to Geb.

Spoiler:

RP Sample:
“Unbelievable” muttered Arasmes as he walked towards the temple “Refusing to serve ME breakfast because they think I’m a vampire JUST because I come from Geb. What Vampire is going to sit in the sun eating breakfast? This lead better pan out.”
Squinting in the morning sun despite his wide brimmed hat Arasmes reached the door, knocked politely once in deference to local customs, and walked in. Suppresing an involuntary shiver at the unmistakable aura of consecration he pushed politely past a few other people in his way until he found the man who matched the description he had been given.
“Angus McDarrow? I’m Arasmes Kemnebi.”
He waited for the paladin to recognise his name, then sighed when it became obvious this yokel had never even heard of Kemnebi.
“Sir, the local people have informed me you believe these recent incidents might be the work of a rogue vampire. As it happens I have been tracking a rogue vampire who I think may be in this area.”
Arasmes blinked once, considering. What the hell, might as well be up front.
“I have been tracking him from Mechitar, but he seems to have gone to ground around here. I need you to explain everything that led you to believe this might be a vampire. It’s possible this could be the rogue I’m tracking, or that he could have started spawning a brood to defend himself.”
