Flaws

Quiet, very introverted, awkward, determined to a fault. Extremely loyal to his loved ones, to the point of risking himself. Tends to see himself as dispensable.

Against the Fae, since they burned down the village he lived in, though it's less of a hatred and more of a distrust mixed with fascination

 
Hobbies

Writing and reading poetry, traveling with Christopher Norwood

 
Personality type

Arthur is shy and quiet, and quite uncomfortable talking to people he doesn't know. He's very devoted to his friends and his kingdom, travelling days in a row to aid in communications between villages and later courts. Arthur is very intelligent as well, and is set on absorbing as much information as he can. Chosen as the herald for the Norwood family, he is very close to the middle children and is fiercely loyal to them, though not necessarily the crown. He traveled with Christopher Norwood on the journey that led to Christopher selling his heart to the Fae, which ended their close friendship for many years. Before that trade, the two had been nearly inseparable. He sees himself as little more than a tool to further the good of the kingdom.

 
Favorite possession

An iron ring he keeps on a pendant around his neck, along with his dark blue herald's cloak. He used to be in possession of a vial of enchanted water from the Pond, but he used it to save Cordelia Norwood's life when she was fatally wounded in battle.

 
Favorite animal

Woodpeckers

 
Favorite weapon

Words and negotiations.

 
Favorite food

Pasta

 
Favorite color

Grey

 
Occupation

Official herald and unofficial bookkeeper

 
Politics

Doesn't have a very firm stance on the kingdom's politics; he sees himself as a deliverer of policies rather than a developer. While he does initially distrust the Fae, he believes that King Phillip is far too harsh on them, and that they are to be watched from a distance rather than attacked.

 
Background

Another one of the orphans left by the raid, Arthur Nest is taken in by an overbearing shopkeeper in Bassen and trained as his bookkeeper. King Phillip eventually notices his talent for memorization and note taking, and promotes him herald for his children at age 16. After traveling with Christopher Norwood on his trek into Ignis (where Christopher sold his heart to the fae), he was separated from his closest companion and sent off with Phillip's older children.

 
Birthday

April 14th
