VIRGIL, RIDER OF TIME
"There I was, way off my ambitions, getting deeper in love every minute, and all of a sudden I didn't care."
Full Name: Virgil, Rider of Time
Dragon: Adutaine (Samantha )
Appearance: Virgil has tan, olive skin from his many days training in the sun. He is rather skinny for a boy his age, and is quite tall as well. He has a slender, handsome face, as well as rugged green eyes. His hair is a tousled mess of auburn. He constantly wears his old armor around, which is silver-and-maroon, and bears the insignia of his kingdom.
Personality: Never having received any formal education, Virgil is not academic. He can read and solve basic math problems, but that's about it. Having been trained his whole life as a sentinel, Virgil is extremely fast, both physically and mentally. He has a lot of street-smarts, and an amazing capacity to problem-solve; potentially, he could grow to be a scholar, but he chooses not to pursue that path. A deep thinker, Virgil often distances himself from others, even Adutaine, just to think. He loves to ponder the origin of things, and is happiest alone (or alone with just Adutaine), left to his thoughts.
Virgil has an unfortunate tendency to take things too seriously, and to think too deeply. Whereas things should be kept simple, Virgil insists on it being complicated. A romantic person, Virgil has endless dreams that he is constantly pursuing, and will likely never reach. If he has beauty, he wants wealth; if he wants wealth, he wants glory; if he has beauty, wealth, and glory, all he wants is simple peace and quiet. He is forever restless and drifting, always seeking. Strong-willed and persistent, Virgil sets his mind on ideas and chases them rentlessly until the end, regardless of whether or not they're practical. He's still quite rebellious, and loathes people who tell him what to do. However, he harbors a deep respect and admiration (mostly out of awe) for Adutaine, and often listens to her; if anyone else were to say the same thing, he'd probably rebuff them immediately. Because of this, he became quite arrogant and annoying.
History: Virgil was born into a human kingdom, where both his parents served the king directly. His father was a well-educated man, and advised the king, while his mother was the royal harp player. Virgil's older brother Vincent grew up to be talented in both strategic planning and piano playing, making their parents immensely proud. The king took a liking to him as well and kept him around, while Virgil was sent to be trained as an ordinary soldier. Their parents put all their attention and effort into Vincent (not that they didn't love Virgil; but with all the glory Vincent held, it was a little hard not to invest more into him). Virgil was left feeling lonely, and began to develop a rebellious streak from his daydreams of being the perfect child. They were just silly hopes; he would never be the golden boy Vincent was. And so, his parents began to grow frustrated with his actions, and a rift grew between them. Virgil picked fights and swung his axe more than necessary. Eventually, he ran away.
Sailing around aimlessly, he encountered a dragon for the very first time: a serprentine Lesser Elemental by the name of Kysannis, who claimed to be the daughter of the deities Light and Earth. Virgil clung to her, intensely curious about Kysannis's world and the possibilities it held for a lonely boy like him. Eventually, Kysannis managed to shake Virgil off and attempted to run back to the Realm of Dragons, but Virgil caught her at the last moment, and together they descended into the island. On the island, Virgil promptly forgot about Kysannis and became obsessed with exploring the lands. Kysannis, who wanted to travel alone anyway, bade him farewell and good luck. A couple years later, Virgil encountered the Time Elemental Adutaine, who accepted him as her Rider.
Weapons/abilities: Virgil wields his two-bladed axe from when he was a soldier, and also has various knives tucked into his armor, which he excels at throwing, and has trained himself to chuck them accurately, even from Adutaine's back. After becoming her rider, he has received a spear, which, if he throws at a certain speed, has the slight power to bend the time space around its tip while travelling: near it, time is concentrated, and speeds up; around it, the time space it has stolen causes the surroundings to slow, allowing Virgil an advantage in battle.
