    Name: Iwan Dembek of Szczecin

    Age: 56

    Sex: Male

    Appearance: [​IMG]

    Religion: Catholicism

    Conditions: Sociopathy

    Personality: The merciless and stubborn king of Szczecin is known for never backing down in the face of danger. His sociopathy makes it difficult for him to empathize with others, but his wife Cecylia balances him out.

    Backstory/History: Originally born to a powerful noble family on December 25, 2120, Iwan Dembek has always had a deep founded belief in his superiority to others and his destiny to lead an empire that rivals that of Ancient Rome and the British. Assuming power as a member of the royal family in 2149, following his grandfather's ascension to the throne, Iwan immediately set to work to gain the support of the poor, as well as to spread his influence in the church.

    With the early death of King Przemyslaw in 2152, Iwan's father Bogumir assumed power. Immediately liked by the surrounding kingdoms, Bogumir's reign saw great prosperity in terms of foreign relations. Towards the end of Bogumir's reign, Iwan entered a political war with his father over his insistence for weakening the Church's power. This culminated with the short Szczecin Civil War in 2161-2162, that resulted in the execution of his father and his taking of the crown.

    Outraged, but fearful of angering Szczecin powerful Eastern ally Stargrad, the neighboring kingdoms sought to instead embargo him. Over Iwan's reign as king, the Kingdom of Szczecin has fought to increase its presence in the region by becoming more independent and holding strong against its enemies. Despite the seemingly universal disdain that his neighbors have for Iwan (minus allied and neutral nations), Iwan is a greatly respected individual for his resilience and ability to maintain power.

    Likes: Military, the Church, Stargrad, history, power, unifying the region

    Dislikes: All neighboring hostile nations, besides Turzinica and Swin, Islam, weakness, sin, those that vy for more power within his realm

    Opinions of the Other Families:
    • Dzik- King Iwan has sought close relations with the Church ever since his ascension to power in 2162. Under his reign he has allowed the Church to spread its influence to the peasantry. In 2164, his brother Leo took power as a high ranking member of the Church. As for the Dziks themselves, Iwan understands that the family's want to help the disenfranchised is invaluable to his maintaining of power, and as a result, the two families are in close understanding.
    • Tonna- Seeing the Tonna family as being in the wrong land, King Iwan holds great dislike for them, and has on occassion hindered their growth in areas. Knowing the Tonna family to be the greatest threat he has, Iwan seeks a means for their destruction.
    • Bauer- Greatly respecting the family's history, and not wanting more powerful enemies, Iwan has fought to ensure friendly relations with the family. However, he has at times directly gone against them as showings of power as well as preventing them from growing too fast.
    • Wiwczarek- Iwan prefers this family to the Tonnas.

    Extra/Misc:
    • King Iwan beheads and or crucifies those that threaten his power.
    • King Iwan owns two German Shepherds named Romulus and Remus
    • King Iwan has an affinity for red wine
    • King Iwan dreams of obtaining ammunition for his unusable gun collection
    • King Iwan is very proficient with a sword and shield, as well as archery
    • King Iwan is fluent in Polish, German, and Danish and understands parts of English
    • Rumors persist that Iwan is well acquainted with his servants

    Name: Albin Dzik

    Age: 39

    Sex: Male

    Appearance:
    1200px-ElGreco-HortensioParavicino.jpeg

    Religion: Catholicism

    Conditions: None

    Personality: A fair and content head of the Church. Is known for being very forgiving, regardless of sins or crimes committed. Uses much of the Church's money and his own to help the poor and mistreated of the city when he gets the chance.

    Backstory/History: Even before he was born, Albin was destined by his bloodline to become the next head of the Church after his father. He was taught from a young age by his parents about the importance about respect, forgiveness and helping those less fortunate when he inherits the position of head of the Church. Upon being given the role as head of the Church after his father stepped down, he began work on a small council of religious officials and advisors within the Church to vote on decisions Albin feels he shouldn't decide on alone.

    Likes: The royal family, religion, helping the poor, forgiveness, respect, chivalry.

    Dislikes: War, violence, poverty, mistreatment of another human, sin, sodomy.

    Opinions of the Other Families:
    Dembek/Royal Family: Albin has always had a mutual respect to the Royal Family as the rulers of the city and the only other Polish family in a position of power. Although he may respect the family as a whole, he has a displeasure towards Iwan's tyrannical rule but does not let it show as it would risk the relationship between the two families.

    Bauer: Mostly indifferent towards the Bauers but wishes to seek a mutual relationship with the family and a possible business agreement about their farming business and food shortages within the peasantry.

    Tonna: Largely had a distaste to the family as he sees them to be greedy but does not publicly say anything about them.

    Extra/Misc: Speaks fluent German and Polish

    Name: Werner Tonna

    Age: 48

    Sex: Male

    Appearance: upload_2018-2-11_13-55-20.png

    Religion: Catholic

    Conditions: None

    Personality: Werner is focused on ensuring the survival of his family's prosperity and leads his business with a callous disregard for others. Despite this, he embraces charity as a means to maintain a positive public perception.

    Backstory/History: As the eldest son of his father Siegfried, Werner was destined to rule over his family's wealth. As such, he was trained from a young age to handle the intricacies of the business from finances to the accompanying intrigues. He married the daughter of a prominent tradesman to ensure friendly relations with them, and had two children with her: Franz and Annaliese Tonna. When Siegfried retired from the business and control of the banks transferred to Werner, Werner arranged a new private guard headed by his brother August.

    Likes: Dynastic Prestige, Wealth, Power, Pragmatism, Family, Trade

    Dislikes: Embargos, the Dembek dynasty, Islam, Disrespect, the Church, Competition

    Opinions of the Other Families:
    Dembek: Werner sees the Dembeks as one of his largest obstacles in expanding his power and seeks a means to end their tyranny.
    Dzik: While not fond of the Church as a whole, Werner respects the genuine charity of the Dzik family which makes him view them as weak.
    Bauer: As another powerful German family, Werner hopes to maintain positive relations with them.
    Wiwczarek: Werner views them as his main source of competition, and as such, wishes for a means to their end.

    Extra/Misc:

    Name: Piotr Wiwczarek

    Age: 60

    Sex: Male

    Appearance: A short bald man with a long thick grey beard and bushy eyebrows. Pale skin and dark green eyes. His nose is fat and crooked while his skin is wrinkled. He is a bit chubby but not noticeably so while dressed. He often wears well made but plain clothes, black robes mostly and a hat to cover his baldness.

    Religion: Catholicism in public ( He actually believes in no higher power and considers religion only a tool to control the peasants.)

    Conditions: Arthritis which limits his movements and makes him require a walking stick to get around with.

    Personality: With decades of experience running his families banks, Piotr is a shrewd and patient man who likes to attack his enemies indirectly. Above all, he is concerned with protecting his own life and wealth and will attempt to crush anyone who threatens these two things, even his own family. He is cold and practically minded, thinking mostly in terms of business, although he loves his wife honestly and she may be the only person in the world that he genuinely shares a bond with.

    Backstory/History: Born in 2116 to a wealthy banking family he was the second child to Piotr and Alicja Wiwczarek. His older brother, Tomaz, took little interest in the family business and seemed much more interested in sword fighting and chasing girls than numbers. Piotr, on the other hand, was a prodigy and he wasn't content with spending his life as a financial advisor to his older brother's bank. So when he was 18 he hatched a plan, killing his younger sister and framing Tomaz -- who would be tried and beheaded for the murder. He would still not take over the banks on his father's death, they would go to his nephew who was still a child. So a few years later as his Father's health was failing, Piotr ordered the assassination of his young nephew. With the way cleared he took over the bank when his father died in 2139. Piotr slowly expanded the bank and deepened its involvement in national affairs in order to strengthen its connections with the royal family, hoping to gain their trust to command influence within the kingdom.

    He married a year after coming to power and had three children, oldest to youngest; Ewunia(2140), Gabriel (2143) and Oleg(2147). Euwunia died as a child due to illness. His children and grandchildren have shown little potential -- at least to his standards -- between debouchures, violent and ornate behaviour on his son Gabrial's side and the general incompetence of Oleg's side, he struggles to find a worthy heir.
    Likes: Wealth, Power, his wife, music, fine foods and the challenge of overcoming competition.

    Dislikes: The Church, honour (He sees it as a facade), the poor, his children and grandchildren, incompetence and the stupid.

    Opinions of the Other Families:
    Tonna: His greatest enemy and the main threat to his own wealth. He wishes to see them fall but also respects them, seeing them as an equal and worthy opponent.
    Bauer: Looks down on them as lessers but not openly hostile.
    Dzik: Sees the church as a threat to his own power and by extent wishes to see the Dzik families influence and power strangled.
    Dembek: Knowing it to be unwise to go against the Royal family he supports the family as best as he can in hopes of ensuring their trust for a mutually beneficial alliance. He sees little more in them other than a strong business ally though.

    Name: Hermann Bauer

    Age: 29

    Sex: Male

    Appearance: A fairly tall, healthy man with a full head of blond hair and bright blue eyes, keeps his beard trimmed and tries to be attentive to his appearance, wearing only fine robes and tunics. Oval face shape. Somewhat pale and of relatively healthy weight, bordering on slightly overweight. His eyebrows are quite bushy, his skin is rather coarse and has mild rosacea.

    Religion: Catholicism

    Conditions: (obviously not officially diagnosed) Dysthymia, (obviously not officially diagnosed)giftedness, flat feet, mild rosacea

    Personality: Hermann showed signs of high innate literary and verbal aptitude at a young age, additionally inheriting depressive symptoms from his mother. Nevertheless, he was always very aggressive as a child, and this trait of aggression was carried over into adulthood, though it has become tamer with age. Hermann is quite territorial, very protective of his family and friends, being more than willing to go against the grain if it is for the greater good. Naturally, his fiery temper would occasionally get him into trouble, typically though he holds no grudges, and this is because he holds nothing back in any form of sparring, verbal or otherwise. He has plenty of experience as a businessman, his decisive personality contributes to his ability to take the right risks and deal with whatever outcome may arise. Furthermore he is renown for his honesty and lack of a "businessman's lingo". He works doggedly at his personal enterprises, and thoroughly enjoys helping others in theirs. Sometimes being rather overzealous in his attempts to act as an advisor to others, but rarely does this turn out for the worse. Hermann may seem prone to impulsive spending, but this is simply untrue, he is quite frugal in reality. Hermann generally despises centralized authority and finds authority figures both demeaning and, in the grand scheme of life, hopelessly irrelevant. His gentler, more openly kind and understated wife helps to bring balance to his erratic personality. When interacting with people, he is pensive and to the point.

    History: Hermann grew up as a likable and energetic child, who was constantly encouraged by his loving and comparatively more interpersonally diplomatic father, and his pensive mother who always had a word of wisdom at the ready for Hermann. Hermann quietly struggled with depression, which he dealt with by directing his repressed anger out onto the world, his anger manifested as a kind of lust for life. Hermann often practiced swordfighting with his father, who had been trained by a rogue knight that used to hang around Aaron's Inn, as a result Hermann is a skilled swordsman and unmatched by most who have partaken in dueling for practice with him. Hermann spent most of his adolescence preparing himself for adulthood, which was always quickly approaching in a world such as this one. After marrying his wife, he felt as though a bit of his edge had been dulled by her inherent tranquility and sweetness. When he inherited his father's operations, he felt a sense of power and control over the world. Mentally exaggerating what he had to make it seem as though he was a minute king of a puny kingdom, which, obviously posed a problem for someone with a deeply-rooted resentment of authority. Hermann is unsure as to where the resentment began, but it is generally presumed that it began with his mother, who, while kind and thoughtful, had regular bouts of abuse of her parental authority and belligerence towards her family. Aaron, being the man he was, preferred to keep this hidden, lacking the heart to beat his wife into submission. This translated over into an overcompensantory personality that would both behoove and behead him in life. In stark contrast to his sister, Rafaela, who had always been his polar opposite in how quiet and shy her personality had always been. He and his sister were close growing up, but slowly became distanced from one another due to the uncomplimentary polarity in character that the two possessed. Nevertheless, they watch out for one another and ensure to keep each other's children safe. When Rochelle was born, Hermann came upon a newfound reason to be more aggressive to the outside world and a reason to be more gentle towards his familal life. Throughout his time as sole proprietor and leader of Bauer business he made new connections, friends in the church and tried to repair the damage that his father had caused to the Bauer's relationship to the poor.

    Likes: Wit, reading, socializing, his enterprise, food

    Dislikes: Religious hypocrisy, "business talk", pontification, indecisive people, passionless aggression, monarchy

    Opinions of the Other Families:
    Tonna: Strong respect for their power, ingenuity, and risk-taking in business endeavors. Hopes to maintain the mutually positive relations at present and expand upon them in the years to come.

    Dzik: Hermann thinks they are doing a wonderful job and hopes to increase positive relations with them.

    Dembek: Resents the family for their dictatorial rule, and wishes to see them ousted from power, but generally prefers to keep to himself, so as to avoid stirring any unneeded conflict that would presently almost certainly result in undesirable consequences for the Bauer family.

    Wiwczarek: Hermann doesn't find anything particularly wrong with the family, but sides with the Tonna in that they are unneeded competition and as such should be removed from the equation at some point in the future.
