The Verden Realms
Queen Caroline of Taur'on's Head of the Rose Guard, Mentor to Haven, and all-around awesome guy.
Originally from the land of Kaydia, Brutus’ parents moved to Taur’on when he was a young child. When Brutus was fourteen, he drew the Service Card, changing his life forever. His parents wanted him to return home to his grandparents, perhaps finding someone to purchase his Card. But Brutus refused; he would do his duty and serve. Reaching six foot seven inches tall by his eighteenth birthday, his fellow soldiers nicknamed him “Brutal” for his powerful blows. As the years passed, he earned honor after honor among the ranks. At the age of eighteen, he found himself chosen by then Queen Caroline II to be a member of the Rose Guard. He was hand-picked by Adaron to be among the family’s personal guard and by thirty-five he became the personal tutor and bodyguard to young Princess Haven, the only daughter of Princess Vivian. Brutal is very protective of his charge and can be very gruff with anyone near her. But to Haven, he is simply Brutal, her teacher and mentor.
