Description and/or portrait:
With his fair skin, blonde hair, grey-blue eyes, long face, and chiseled chin, Sonantius’s face strongly fits the archetype popular among human noble houses of Qeynos. As he is a gnome and not a human, however, these features are almost comically out of proportion. Stance and build bespeak a life of military service. Armor is immaculately fitted and polished heavy plate, of a brass hue. Favors a gnomish naginata, but more usually armed with a longspear or lance best suited for mounted combat. May be wielding a sword and shield instead where long weapons are impractical or unwelcome. Shield blazon: Party per pale Or and Murrey, a cogwheel counterchanged.
Tinkering, with a special interest in precision, standardization, and reliability of parts; maintenance of armor, arms, and other equipment; spears & polearms; cavalry and mounted melee combat; percussion instrument performance
sword & shield; two-handed blades; peacekeeping & police work; heraldry & history of noble houses; arcane theory (but not practice); alchemical theory (but not practice)
Weaknesses: ranged weapons; magical practice; alchemical practice; wilderness survival & tracking; singing; diplomatic contact with “uncivilized” races
Service Record & Events of Note:
Previous known Aliases: Ondegar Farspark (birth name)
Former squire of an unrecorded Paladin of the Tribunal. Currently devoted “Quality Control Inspector” of the Tribunal. Known to have attempted to organize a clockwork-mounted gnome cavalry from Gnomeland Security HQ to raid Klak-Anon, but efforts failed due to prevailing gnomish tendency of ill-timed tinkering of their mounts. Admitted as an Aspirant by Vigiles Amicae to bolster ranks of cavalry and security units.
