+ Loyal | Protective | Strong-willed | Generous | Determined | Rational

-  Combative | Stubborn | Possessive | Stone-hearted | Sinner

Loyal | The view equines Arturo trusts these days and keeps close to him are valued and he will stand behind their backs in hard times.

Patient | One has to be patient if he wants to snatch someone’s freedom. The same applies to manipulating people into doing what he wants.

Protective | There aren’t many who can call themselves loved one’s of Arturo but those who can, are under hier fierce protection. He doesn’t care about right or wrong, if your child needs help, he is there with all his brawl.

Strong-willed | If he wants something, he is going to make sure to get it and he steps over people in the process. He used to be different, strong-willed but gentle. Now he is what he is.
Generous | He never denies a favour, probably you won’t like the outcome or the favour he did you. It might seem he did everything for you but later it back hands at you.

Rational | Catching slaves has to be planned, you can’t just go out and hope they run into you. And labor slaves don’t pay shit. Pit fighters is what Aodh and Arturo’s purse need. Bargain well with the War-Forged. And also, don’t get caught if you find a stray Seroran.

Combative | Arturo likes to fight, he likes to let his fists fly into other people’s faces. He is good in a fight and he likes to show it off. Especially if you are an asshole. He enjoys to punch perverts in the pearl and break people’s noses.

Stubborn | Arturo does what Arturo wants to do. Try to make let him go, you won’t succeed. He is stubborn to the core and will stomp off, even though you might have been right. Oh he is rational? Well not when he is stubborn.

Possessive | Probably a trait that gets him into quite some trouble. Except for slaves, you can’t make anybody “yours”. And things like, “you are mine.” Won’t work on these special people, even if you put on the growly sound.

Stone-hearted | He does not care how much a mother with children will wail at his feet when he shackles them. At this moment they are his and he will sell them to whoever he pleases. Slaves in general don’t get much attention from him, he does not own one himself. The only slaves he is interested in are pit-slaves and pit fights. There is only one slave he has true interest in.

Sinner | He drinks, he gambles and he whores. He certainly has double standards in this case. The only thing he won’t do is opium. He likes to visit the Crucible and to gamble away his hard earned money, while watching the pit fighters hacking into flesh.


Arturo was born to a simple and pretty well overlooked family. His father Acorn an inferior chevalier and a mother from a poor merchant’s family that wasn’t noticed by the noble, rich or poor. Fortunata had been a broad woman but with a fierce beauty and temperament, much older then her husband who was a short and stocky man who was kind of boringly handsome, if you looked twice. Arturo was a loved child, especially by his mother and so by his father who had big plans for the youngster.

Taken from his mother's protective hands, Acorn trained Arturo early on to become a squire of a much better chevalier then he was himself. Acorn was unforgiving and strict, pushing the kindling, being mad with ambition. Arturo would help the family from their semi stand in the city, to raise to one of the most glorious chevaliers in whole Aodh and take the family’s reputation with him. Arturo suffered under his father's hard training, he was bruised and battered from age 8, every day. He lacked social contact and play with friends of his own age, never taking part in the huge and alluring social life of Aodh.

With 12 Arturo finally was assigned as a squire for a chevalier and Acorn was proud, Fortunata was so too, but she had seen what it had cost Arturo to get there. What burden Acorn had laid on the youngster. Arturo was supposed to become famous and wealthy, a showpiece for all chevaliers in the future. As a squire, Arturo couldn’t lay low, but he wasn’t under his father's mad influence anymore. He made friends, participated in social events together with his mentor and got to know the city and it’s inhabitants. Delilah was one of the first youngsters he got to know and she showed him many wonderful and disturbing things in Aodh. They shared their first sexual experiences together but grew apart as Arturo's training became more and more demanding.  He flourished under his mentor's care who was a social butterfly, kind and generous with an unmissable sexual drive. If he couldn’t be found, he most likely was at the Pearl. Arturo’s promotion to the chevalier rank was a happy day for his family and Arturo was proud of himself too. He had outgrown his father's madness, he had managed to create a life for himself and made it actually possible to become a really well trained chevalier with good manners and a social circle around him that was way over his parents level. It was also the time when Arturo got to know Obscura, a mare of high birth, frail health and exceptional powers.

Arturo and Obscura married when he was 20 in a beautiful ceremony. Obscura’s frail health prevented her from becoming pregnant, but it wasn’t the couple’s deepest desire. With her blessing of seeing visions of the future, Obscura was more likely doomed. To improve her visions, Obscura regularly visited  Ras'xuul for potions and imbued objects to enhance her gift. Using them more and more, Obscura drifted into a state of mind where she couldn't keep her visions from reality, where she at some point never came back at all. At the end, Obscura starved to death while she was gone in another reality and had left Arturo long ago. He developed a deep hatred for Ras'xuul, because someone had to be blamed for it, even though Obscura seemingly brought her end upon herself.
Arturo was pulled under water, his love for Obscura had been so deep, his life forged around their existence. His parents tried to aid him in his grief, but they couldn’t reach him. He drowned his sorrow in the most shabby taverns, fighting every night with other drunks on the street. He roamed the darkest alleys and was vanished from sight for days. He gambled away his money in the pits until he lost his home and his mind.
With his last money he stumbled into the pearl, an establishment that wasn’t unknown for him before he married Obscura. He had been faithful to her, but he had used up all possibilities to forget, maybe another woman would ease the pain.

After sorrow and grief followed anger and frustration. A vortex of emotions dragged him away from his good side. His thoughts became darker, his actions too. He had to earn money and by happenstance he stumbled upon a vagabond during one of his random rambles through the wild. He caught he young stallion and sold him to the best buyer. His pockets finally filled with some clink, it didn’t take long for him to make this his new profession.

Arturo is probably not the busiest slave trader in Aodh, but he is known for his supreme catches. He is patient with his prey and with his background of training, most of them have no chance. He takes them all, male, female or child. He does not care what happens to them. He trades them for good money, and his caught slaves are not cheap. He is not a dealer for slaves, he prefers to round them up in the wild or to bargain with the War-Forged for the best pit slaves.

He often can be found lingering around in the pearl, just for the fun of it and secretly meeting Delilah there. If not in the Pearl he usually is out hunting or watching the pit slaves in the Crucible.

Oh how I've missed Arturo!

That history/personality change hurt, gosh the poor guy! :(

Out of curiosity, was this what you planned with him previously in cw ( for Obscura to die and Arturo to become this way?)

Thank you so much, I missed him too!
And it does hurt yes, bitter sweet pain. His character became much more interesting though :D all the layers...

Well there was always the possibility of Obscura dying, we hadn't planned anything to this point but it wasn't planned for Arturo to become like this. It was actually Ansgar's part to be the black sheep of the family. (His half brother in the Bachelor's herd) 
Man I miss CW...
