The mortification of his own flesh due to his practice of flagellation. This has also resulted in him having quite an Anemic appearance due to frequent blood loss as a result of his practice. ✙ Visual Appearance: Titus is a tall Individual standing at around 6'0" in height, but appears to be underweight for his height as he is only 136 pounds, with a rather small amount of body fat. His lithe build, delicate facial features and almost none existant body hair has given him an incredibly androgynous appearance. He tends to dress quite modestly, prefering conservative attires which cover his entire person hands included. If any Jewelery is worn they will almost always be silver. Spoiler: Visual Information Expanded ✙ Face Describable as attractive in the purest sense. Titus has an incredibly neutral face with untelling eyes, none of Titus’ features are particularly masculine or feminine and are best described as androgynous with sharp delicate features. Defined cheekbones and jawline. A softer brow and thin petite nose with sharp eyebrows, he’s somewhat more akin to the features of a nelfin than an ailor and has been known to on occasion be mistaken for a nelfin who’s ears have been clipped, though pointing out this detail to the Unionist fanatic would not be recommended. ✙ Body Following a similar state as his face, his body lacks any broadly male or female characteristics that can make it rather difficult to discern his gender, his physique is incredibly slender with a slight widening at the hips that makes identifying him all the more ambiguous and difficult to discern. Years of combat experience has left him with a seriously well defined figure. Titus is a practitioner of flagellation and as such, his back is a mess of scars which are constantly being reopened due to constant whipping, the loss of blood caused by this has left Titus looking very pale. ✙ Clothes A preference towards conservative garments, Titus dresses like many of the pious. Though with a preference towards darker tones. He often goes for basic robes and garments, the only real form of stylisation and accessorization that appears in any of his outfits are religious in nature, including prayer beads and religious texts. ✙Voice Authoritative and direct. Titus speaks with absolute conviction without hindrance and hesitation, it’s not a particularly deep or soft voice. The Ohrneti accent is evident, but he speaks in a clearly understandable manner which doesn’t portray his emotions, Titus never raises his voice unless absolutely necessary, even when speaking to masses of people his voice remains controlled. As a result of it never portraying his true emotional state, people often find it to be rather intimidating. Spoiler: Relationships Andrei Vykos (NPC): A Knight of the Unionist Faith, Andrei saw potential in the young Titus and sponsored him, which put him through schooling and ultimately allowed Titus to become what he is today. Titus is than thankful for the opportunity provided to him by Ser Vykos. "the Spirit sees all that transpires in His domain; and we are judged equally for the illumination we bring to the blackest night. We are judged in life for those moments where we spill light into the darkest reaches of His Empire." ✙ birth and childhood: Born Arevik Giorgiez, he was the sixth child of a farming family. His family were tried & executed on the grounds of void worship, with Arevik being spared due to his youth and suffered a grueling upbringing in an Evintarian Monastary, where he later changed his name. ✙ Adolescence: Initially intending to be trained as a Reverend, Titus instead pursued a career as a military Chaplain due to growing tensions between the Ohrneti & the surrounding Isldar, Velheim, Dorkarth cultures. His education and training patroned by a Unionist Knight named Andrei Vykos. ✙ Young adult life: Took to Military life with relative ease as it allowed him to focus his growing anger towards the enemies of his people, which strengthened the young mans religious convictions and continued conflict with Dorkarth Vampires led to an increased distaste towards Aberrancy in most forms. ✙ Coming to Regalia, first time: While in the company of a Regalian Solider, Learned of the Holy Capital, in particular the criminal underbelly which under pinned the city and the heresy which thrived within. He made a Pilgrimage to Regalia, were he served in three iterations of the Inquisition, but saw each fail for one reason or another.

Following a bad harvest Arevik’s family were risking starvation over the winter months and gathered what they could and prepared for winter. During this time a group of guards led by an inquisitor turned up at the house, expecting tithe for the local church, the family had to refuse as they had nothing to give. The Inquisitor took this as a slight against the Unionist faith and ordered the guards to search the house, in their search they located items which they believed to be related to void worship and the family were taken into custody and tried for crimes of heresy. Almost all of Arevik’s family were put to death by the inquisitors, however Arevik was spared, being only a child of four they believed his soul and mind was able to be saved from the clutches of the void. While in the custody of the church, Arevik was subjected to brutal treatment, for two years he spent much of his time locked away within the penitent halls of his church suffering brutal whippings from guards, to the extent he’d often fall unconscious from either pain or blood loss, only when he turned six did the punishment end and the beatings stopped, at least for a while as Arevik adopted the practise of Flagellation believing his soul remains and will always have been touched by the void. The church took him in as a young ward and became an acolyte of the clergy, doing menial chores such as cleaning the halls of the church and washing the clothes of the faithful. During his time he caught the eye of a knight of the faith by the name of Andrei Vykos. The knight sponsored the boy and his generosity allowed him to learn to read and write, Titus to this day does not know what drove the knight to raise him up. it was around this time that Arevik decided to change his name having learnt of his families betrayal of the unionist faith and his now insatiable hatred for the void, he desired to distance himself from the people he once loved. Initially Titus had intentions of becoming a Reverend and began the process of learning to become one, though as time progressed, Titus often heard stories of the horrors committed by the unfaithful and anger began to boil inside of him, this prompted him to begin the process of combining martial training with his learnings as a Reverend to defend and help lead man against those who'd oppose Unionism, finding contact with his old Mentor Vykos, he requested the man teach him how to fight, to which the senior man accepted with a smile saying he’d been waiting for this day since they’d met. Titus split much of his time to either training or learning the litanies of unionism and during this time his faith grew to fanatical proportions, he made attempts to learn the dead language of Proto Regalian wanting to read the creeds of Unionism as they had been written. Once he had learnt what he could Titus bid farewell to Vykos and left to join his peoples eternal crusade as a Chaplain. Titus took to military life like a duck to water, the strict discipline and highly organised way of life was something that worked well with young Titus, as it allowed him to focus his anger and hatred against the enemies of Unionism, this allowed him to excel quickly through training and it wasn’t long before he saw battle in a skirmish against Dorkarth vampires, witnessing the sanguines brutality only strengthened his convictions against the void. Titus continued his military service with utmost loyalty and provided his skills as a Chaplain with complete fervour, fighting all manner of the faiths enemies, However while tending to the spiritual needs of a younger imperial soldier from Regalia, he learnt more of the capital, in particular of the cities dark and vile underbelly. This left Titus in a state of shock and loss, His culture and his life had evolved around the fervent defence of the Unionist faith, yet behind closed doors of the Capital heresy was not only present, but was thriving. Titus remained quiet on his intentions for the rest of his tour and to the surprise of many of his companions and superiors declined the option to continue his service and announced that he was making a pilgrimage to the holy city and ultimately cleanse the enemy from within.
