"Waydon Cordus, a good man if you ask me. There he goes now, still looking for that little boy of his. Its a real shame what happened to them folks. Oh you never heard of him? Well let me tell you what I heard and also what I saw.
You know me, I've been on these docks my whole life. I remember when I first saw Lucius carrying his little boy Waydon on the docks. The named him after Waydon Endrin of course. That Cordus family has got the looks I tell ya. They're old blood, noble and all that, but somewhere way back someone backed the wrong horse if you catch my drift. Got no money now and no real claim to anything. Still that didn't stop Waydon's father Lucius from being a good man, an upstanding Korvosan Guard, the kind you trust to interrupt the law the way the common man sees it. Well with a father like that you can imagine the man that Waydon grew into. Just like his father he went on to be a guardsman too, and with his smooth voice and his clean looks he netted himself a right pretty wife he did. Unfortunately that's where the story turns sour. Like so many stories round here do. His pretty wife was out with their child Titus. That boy weren't much more than 7 years old then. Well she was haggling for some apples with her child behind her and like something straight from a nightmare her little boy wasn't there when she turned around. She looked everywhere, got Waydon to help and between them and some old guard buddies they couldn't find so much as a trace of their little boy. His wife went crazy with grief, hung herself. Waydon resigned from the Korvosan Guard. And there he goes now, still looking."
Off in the distance a tall man in dented scale mail leads a horse down the street. His hair is short cropped but its golden shine and subtle curls still show. He has an honest face save for sad look in his eyes. His jaw twitches ever so slightly as he approaches a local washerwoman. In clear, well enunciated Common he says, "Heard anything about my boy lately?" The washerwoman keeps her eyes low and nods her head side to side.
Moving on Waydon adjusts the bastard sword in his scabbard and moves the wooden shield on his back into a more favorable position.
He's looking for his missing son.
-Answers to the following questions:
1. What does your character look like?
Tall, well-built with short curly golden hair.
2. What is your character's personality like?
Very honest and likable. He's a mediator and a problem solver. A bit of a boy scout.
3. How bitter is your character toward Lamm?
He suspects Lamm may have his boy, but since he can't confirm that he simply sees him as typical criminal scum. If he could confirm that Lamm has his child he would almost certainly desire the death of Lamm.
4. How would your character react to having Lamm tied up in front of them this instant.
It really depends on the fate of his child. He would not be interested in slowing things down in the courts. That being said, Waydon is not a torturer. He would kill Lamm.
5. How does your character feel about Korvosa as a whole?
Korvosa is his city of birth and a city he once swore to protect. All of the people he has ever known reside within Korvosa.
6. How does your character feel about the King? The Queen?
Waydon is an Arabasti man all the way. He appreciates the good works he's done for the common man. The queen is another creature altogether. The word on the street isn't very favorable for the queen and although Waydon isn't very interested in gossip, he certainly doesn't have any particular fondness for the queen.
7. Does your character have any strange quirks?
He likes milk. He really thinks it does a body good.
