Loyal, Bluntly Honest, Intelligent, Guarded, Alpha-male, Patient, Wise/Lonely, troubled, Feels he is fighting to keep from becoming completely cold and unapproachable.
Having gone through what he has been through in his long life Kalleb has learned to be patient on and off the battlefield. While most of his younger subordinates are hot blooded and ready to just charge into action to earn their bones, he remains calm and coldly collected quickly gathering information to create the necessary strategy to provide the best outcome for their battle/mission. Towards most people he can be strict, intimidating, cold and even harsh but that doesn't mean he is completely heartless. His one soft spot is taken by the Empress he had sworn to protect, he see's her as a younger sister (*coughdaughter/slapped*) and only she would have seen the more softer caring side to the normally hard agressive man. However intimidatng he may be he is never one to abuse his position or cause harm other suffering intentionally, if one looks past him they can see he does things to try and better it for others.
On the downside, he is considerably lonely and nightmares of his past continue to haunt him with no end in sight. His scars are not just physical but emotional and mental from growing up how he did to not knowing if any of his family are still alive. He can only hope that one day he will see either his older brother or younger sister and be united with at least a little of his bloodline.Location:
Captain of the Royal Guard
None yet. Maybe one day
- When he was a small child his family was a normal middle class family, with a houshold of five: mother and father as well as his two other siblings. However one night while his older brother and father were away, the village he lived in was attacked and raided by bandits and his house was no exception. They ended up taking him (10), his sister(4), and his mother went missing. He had no idea of their fates, but his was to be sold off in the black market and thrown into a world of slavery. Even worse due to his young age, undefined/androgynous looks, and slim build he was put up for sale in the pleasure slave category. It didn't take long before he was bought right after to a upperclass businessman who dealt in many different aspects of business. Long story short he took pleasure in using Kalleb for the purpose he had bought him for until he hit a certain age and more of his father's features started to shine through and he lost his androgynous charm. Once that happened and he bought a replacement for the boy, he sent Kalleb to work at one of his other businesses doing mostly heavy lifting and physical labor. It was there Kalleb became stronger and more built, filling out to his height. The jaguartaur had to work off his debt to the man who bought him, meaning he spent years working it off doing whatever he could from selling his services to underground fighting. Eventually he managed to buy his freedom back and also a chance to start LIVING as his own man.
- By now his body was hard, sturdy, and his skill in fighting was great not just in terms of physical skill but he was quick to figure out the best way to beat his opponent. Unknowingly he had a knack for using his brain not just his brawn, creating strategies and using them to get the winning result. One day while the now 17 year old Kalleb was in the middle of an odd job he had managed to pick up he came across a crowded pathway. People were gathered around yet divided as if waiting for something or someone to pass through the middle, and sure enough something did. It was a royal caravan and inside resided the Empress and her daughter, the princess. A passing breeze graced him with a brief glance as the caravan passed and the silk curtain allowed him to see a beautiful baby so small, delicate, and pure unlike himself. Who knows what sparked this need to want to protect this child, but whatever it was it set him on his journey to join the Empire's army, as a lowly cadet of course. He passed all the tests that they threw at him, he was determined to not only live a life better than what'd he'd been living up until now...but he was also set in his goal to work his way up to a position where he could protect the innocence of the empire. His talent for strategy along with his seemingly fearlessness drew the eye other the higher ups and over the course of time he became what appeared to be a model soldier. After all he had nothing to lose and no fear of the outcome of battle or dying, a strong sense of justice with a cool demeanor. This led to him moving up the ranks rather quickly as well, preforming all his duties to the best of his ability all the while keeping an eye out for the princess whenever he was on patrol (though from afar).
- Word of his initiative and bravery spread to the royal court and he was summoned, he was to be recognized for an outstanding performance and his years of service in the army, however what was to be a joyous ceremony quickly turned when an attempt on the heir to the thrown's life was made. While others watched in shock and horror as a man charged towards the princess Kalleb's body reacted on its own putting himself between the child and the threat, his hardened body taking the blunt of the dagger. Maybe it was adrenaline fueling his movements or the long forgotten memories of his younger sister being taken away that caused him to act, but he subdued the attacker before it wore off and the pain set in. After he was treated and recovered enough the former captain stepped down and awarded Kalleb his title placing him as the new captain of the royal guard and the princess' personal bodyguard since he'd shown not only his loyalty to the thrown but his willingness to lay his life down for her. Once able to begin his duty he met face to face with his new charge, the one who reminded him of his long lost sister. The two bonded and his instinct to protect her grew more and more, now even years later he still stays by her side watching over her and supporting her to this day.
- The rest as they say....is history.
