Ser Ivan Robert “The Red Bull” General Information: Name at Birth – Ivan Robert Kortrevich Current Name – Ser Ivan Robert Titles – Knight of Hanseti-Ruska, Knight of The Order of the Crow, Chief of the Royal Haense Military Police, Lieutenant of the Haense Royal Army Traits: - Patient - Aggressive - Temperate - Brave - Strict - Overprotective Zodiac – Scorpio ♏ Age – 36 Physical Description Race – Highlander Gender – Male Build – Mesomorph/ Athletic Height – 6ft 2in Weight – 200lbs Hair – Brown > His hair is very messy Eye Color – Emerald Green >Ser Ivan’s eyes are filled with a stonewall will and determination. When enraged, his eyes would turn from that of a calm and patient Knight to that of a killer Red Bull Skin Tone – White Head Shape – Round Scars – Ser Ivan carries only two reminders of war. There is the one on his face in which he received after fighting bandits in Reza. Then there is the one on his left leg, where it met Bralt the Boar’s axe during the Scyfling War. Clothing/ Uniforms – Ser Ivan in his Crow Knight armor with his RHMP Badge https://gyazo.com/db12d6896dd36b164f9d4b6a6c478ebd Ser Ivan’s Crow Knight armor also has his custom Red Bull emblem on his back as well as a custom Bull-Horned helmet Ser Ivan in his RHMP Chief Uniform w/ his Badge https://gyazo.com/514672541d5e93b0899f8f9cff69ec11 The RHMP uniform can be identified by their Red Berets and the Black and Blue emblem on them Ser Ivan generally wears his Crow Knight armor from day to day while he wears his Chief Uniform during ceremonies or festivities. He normally wears the finest plate armor that the Kingdom has to offer as well as a layer of chain mail and gambeson. He also occasionally wears his wolf pelt coat when it gets too cold under all of that metal. Personal Information Ever since the day he was Knighted, Ser Ivan has always been a patient and cautious soldier. Beforehand, he was hot-headed and always aggressive. Now, he usually keeps his level of professionalism and his rather strict behavior towards his subordinates and his pupils. However, when Ser Ivan does get angry, he can easily switch into a rather intimidating and aggressive fighter. That combined with his relentlessness has lead him to earn his moniker The Red Bull. Ser Ivan has always been overprotective. Even as a growing teen, he always cared for his sisters as his father left his family at a very young age and his mother died only a few years later. Ser Ivan is an excellent swordsman and is a veteran of countless encounters, as well as a veteran of the Scyfling War. His preferred weapon is the long sword and even has his own custom made long sword named Vanquisher. However, Ser Ivan also uses a hunting dagger, a crossbow, a longbow and a javelin on some occasions. Ser Ivan is an extremely protective person. He always will try his best to protect his friends and family to the best of his abilities. His recent failures in his careers has led the Knight to have a case of PTSD and Depression as the thought of losing a person under his charge had shattered his will for a long time. In time, Ser Ivan will have to learn to live with his mistakes as he must continue going forward. Ser Ivan has always had a goal of living up to his bloodline. He has come from a line of two legendary Knights. His grandfather, Ser Nikolaus ‘The Strong’, served as Knight Paramount for forty years and had established the Knightly Order of The Crow. His mother, Dame Primrose ‘The Forbearing’, sacrificed her life to protect her comrades during the mission to recover old relics in Athera. Allegiences – Ser Ivan has been bound to the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska by three oaths. His first oath was his Oath to the Haense Royal Army and the Brotherhood of Saint Karl. His second oath was towards the Knightly Order of the Crow and his Majesty, King Sigismund II, when he was knighted as Ser Ivan ‘The Red Bull’. His third oath was from the one he created himself as he was the founder of the Royal Haense Military Police force, a subdivision of the Haense Royal Army. Strengths – As mentioned previously, Ser Ivan is a very skillful swordsman. He not only has the physical strength and endurance to last in a fight but he also has the Battle IQ to use his skills in the most useful way possible. He has always been a person of Strategy, even going as far as to write his own book on Strategy. Throughout his long career, Ser Ivan has proven himself to be a capable warrior and leader as well as a successful mentor. He is a very wise man and is almost always patient. Weaknesses – Although he is wise, that wisdom did not come from nowhere. Ser Ivan had made many mistakes in his lifetime. One of these mistakes has led him to become very overprotective over those under his care and to have nightmares on most of his nights. He’s lost many in war and his strong emotions can either have a positive affect or a negative affect on him. Ser Ivan sometimes can’t control whenever he gets too angry. In the thick of battle, Ser Ivan can have a very dangerous thirst for blood and has almost attacked his own allies in battle because of his blinding blood lust. Religion – Cannonist Sexuality – Heterosexual Language – Common & New Marian Residence – City of New Reza, Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska. Queens Corner V Marital Status – Married to Her Excellency, Lady Angelika Bykov (matrilineal) Closest Friends: (Alive) Mio Mackensen, Ionian Mackensen, Ruben var Ruthern, Angelika Bykov, Princess Alexandria Barbanov, Ser Marcus Erhdhart (Dead) Ser Bjornolf Sjorn & Anthrop Dale Background Information Ser Ivan was born to the noble family, House Kortrevich. He was the son of two Knight, Dame Primrose Kortrevich and Ser Roderick Kortrevich. He was also the grandson of the longest serving Knight Paramount, Ser Nikolaus ‘The Strong’. As a young child, Ivan had always wanted to become a Knight. He started to train early, learning how to use a sword at the age of ten. He squired under Ser Aeden before mentoring under an old friend of his grandfather, Ser Khroll ‘The Elf’. Ser Khroll had taught Ivan on the importance of Temperance as well as to be fully committed to the realm and to his King. Throughout his early childhood, he met a young lady by the name of Angelika Vanir. The story of Angelika and Ivan was not always the prettiest of stories. Eventually after the two married, they were both disowned by their families. However unlike Angelika, Ser Ivan had a choice. His cousin, Margrave Viktor Kortrevich, asked him to choose between his family or his House to which Ser Ivan replied, “I love my family. That being both the first one and the one that I have raised. But I have children now and I would never rip apart my family. So I suppose I do value my marriage. What kind of Knight, husband or man would I be if I didn’t?”. On that day, Ser Ivan signed his own disownment document. (Check this post out by @Zanthuzfor the full transcript!) Although it seemed as if they had lost everything, the truth was that they now had gained the freedom to do what they wished without any obstacles. Lady Angelika became the Under Secretary of the Interior department in Helena as well as a serving member of the House of Commons. Ser Ivan would go on to establish the Royal Haense Military Police as well as obtain the rank of Lieutenant in the Royal Army. Although he has gone through a lot more than most, Ser Ivan has shown that no matter what he faces, he always finds a way to persevere.
  3. Ser Ivan would fall into a depressive state after he left Johnstown’s Clinic. He did not know the Princess personally but she was dying in his arms as he tried his best to carry her away from the battlefield. He now had it in his mind that he was a failure of a Knight. On the day that he returned to Reza, he would not speak a word. The man that was so bound by duty did nothing but drink most of his storage of Carrion Black. Wounded both physically and emotionally, Ser Ivan was Broken.
  4. Ser Ivan chuckles when he hears the news of his cousin and his old friend “Its about damn time. Took you long enough”
  5. Ser Ivan would hear the news of Ser Robin’s death shortly after he woke up in the clinic. Ser Ivan would remember the collapsing Knight Paramount before him. Ser Ivan lay in his bed in silence as the nurse walked away. He would be in great thought of how he had yet again failed to protect another brother in arms. Although it wasn’t his job, he had a feeling that he could have done more to protect everybody. He truly felt shame and guilt even when it wasn’t at fault. Although he wasn’t close with Ser Robin, he still felt the pain and sadness as he could have done more to protect his brother in arms...
  6. Ser Ivan woke from a terrible dream as he layed in his bed in the clinic of Johnstown. What he saw was nothing less than a nightmare. Fire, ash, smoke and blood all over a familiar place that he had seen before. He had imagined losing something very valuable to him. No dream had ever affected the Knight as this one did. He had always had a few nightmares, but none that was to this magnitude. It felt too real for him. Suddenly, his eyes opened. As he looked to his right his one true brother, Bjornolf ,was there. He smiled and for a moment the memories of the nightmare halted. Ser Bjornolf and Ser Ivan had always been brothers. Even before the time that they were Knighted, they were always close. The two had spent over a decades time fighting alongside one another. In blood and battle, they were brothers. Even though Ser Ivan had two living brothers left, he didn’t have the same close bond with either of them combined compared to the one he had with Bjornolf. As Ivan opened his eyes, Bjornolf smiled down at him and said only this: “I’ll see you soon, Brother”. This brought a smile onto Ser Ivan’s face, though as he blinked his eyes, Bjornolf had vanished... As soon he did, the memories started to return to the wounded Knight. He had remembered of the Battle that had taken place. It was Fort Buck. The fire, ash and smoke was caused by him and the blood… The blood was not that of his enemies, no, it was that of his Brother. He remembered Bjornolf’s body being carried away and the tear streaked eyes in Ser Marcus. He didn’t want to believe it. In fact, during the battle he fought as if he didn’t lose a brother because he truly didn’t believe that Bjornolf had passed. When fighting Bralt the Boar, Ser Marcus yelled out saying “I will not lose another Knight today!”. These words were sounded out by the sounds of screaming, fire, and fighting. Soon after, Ser Ivan was dragged away by Lord Marshal Erwin Barclay. He could do nothing but watch as his friend, Ser Marcus, had fought Bralt the Boar. Luckily, both him and Ser Marcus had made it out alive. As soon as Ivan was brought to safety within the construction place of the Wick keep, he finally saw Bjornolf. It had seemed that the others had conflicted emotions of sadness, fear and anger. Ser Ivan could do nothing at this point. He was wounded horrifically and he was going to die if he didn’t get treatment. Ser Ivan was dragged by Erwin through the harsh and cold woods of the Northlands. Finally, they had escaped the Boar and his hunting party as they reached Johnstown. The battle was finally over… Ser Ivan had finally realized that his friend and his one true brother in this world was gone. He fell silent and his smile had vanished. No tears came from the wounded Knight, none at least. He had a lot to think about. He was escorted to Reza by Princess Alexandria and had soon returned to his home. As he entered, he saw his dog, Frost. The noise from the hound had caught the attention of his wife, who soon kissed Ivan. Though it was a moment of relief, Ser Ivan had the eyes of someone in mourning. After a few moments of silence on the couch, Ser Ivan finally spoke. He had told his wife that Ser Bjornolf had passed. The emotion from just saying his name made it clear that Ivan was heartbroken. Finally, after praying, he showed his tears. The sound of his cries would rival the time when he sobbed for his mother's death. However, this time he knew that he could have done something to prevent it. He knew that if he worked fast enough that perhaps he could have saved his friend. He knew this, and now that he had to live with the thought of what if. It was clear to his wife that Ser Ivan was now truly shattered, and it would not be easy to pull him out of this state… And so, the Knight had gone to sleep. Although, the battle of that day had not left him just yet. As he closed his eyes, the events of the battle had repeated over and over again. He would have to go over the memories of that day all over again in yet another Nightmare. He would have to always remember the death of his one true Brother.Ivan had woken. His wife followed soon and he said only one word with much sadness… “Brother...”
  7. The scent of burning wood and Scyflings still linger in Ser Ivan’s nose as he prepares the next batch of Carrion Cocktails!
  8. Ser Ivan would mourn the loss of a bright and young warrior spirit. Instead of being saddened, he would instead channel these emotions into greater further anger towards Bralt. Still in his mind he only had one true goal: Kill Bralt
  9. Ser Ivan still has the aroma of burning Scyfling and Long ships fresh in his mind as he cheers for the glorious victory that he was a part of, “Truly a great victory for us!” Ser Ivan says with a hearty chuckle “The Prince is a natural born Commander! I will always look forward to the times I get to fight alongside him.” Ser Ivan looks out to the burned fleet from the parapets of Fort Buck “Next time, it will be the other half that burns.”
  10. Ser Ivan would stay silent in his tent as his squire, Ruben, watched him as he read the Biography. Ser Ivan would only be fitted with more anger and rage as he now has confirmation that the true cause of his mothers death was not the beast, but instead the very man who’s army he is supposed to push back. Now, the invasion was personal. In his mind, Ivan only thinks of one thing: Kill Bralt
  11. Ser Ivan would sharpen his Longsword Vanquisher in the camp of Fort Buck as he looks at the soldiers who are hard at work. In his mind, he holds not hatred, but worry. Worry for the Footman to his right and to the initiate on his left. He prepares himself for the bloody battle that will now in fact come. If the time comes to where a sacrifice is to be made, Ser Ivan is prepared to be the first one to volunteer... Though not without a proper fight.

    Ser Ivan would ready his traps, smiling as he imagines the Scyfling scum falling for them.
  13. Ser Ivan nods approvingly as he reads the article
  14. Elgon hears of his nieces death, with a proud look on his face “At least she died as a Kortrevich should. By protectin’ ‘er comrades and dying in battle. You’re in the seven skies with yer pa and yer ma young Prim.” Erik catches wind of his nieces death in the fiery depths of hell. A smile on his face appears an\s he looked up “Excellent job Young Primrose. You died how a true Kortrevich should. Your Uncle Erik is proud” Ivan would look toward the sea on the docks as he hears of his mothers death. He is silent as he grips the letter tightly. He thinks about all the many lessons she gave him. About the happy times he spent together with her or about how she told him to always be brave and smart. He is thankful for all of this. However, he is afraid to talk, or to show emotion. He should be happy that his mother has died as any true Kortrevich should, but he is heartbroken to see her die before his child could see his or her grandmother. As hard as he fights his emotion, a single tear sheds from his eye. He wipes it without hesitation, his hand shaking as he did so. He leaves the docks where she departed and does not say a single word but inside his soul was shattered.
