Beautiful People ~ March 2017 Edition: Rouyn

Happy Valentine's Day! It's time for this month's Beautiful People! Yay! This is a link-up hosted by Paperfury and Further Up and Further In where you answer questions about your characters. I participated in Beautiful People  for the last three years every month. Pretty crazy. XD This link-up has been just so helpful with character development. 

I've done Rouyn before in the appearance edition, but I wanted to do a BP with a little bit more depth and I'm starting his books' rewrite this month so I thought it appropriate. He's one of the three protagonists of my high fantasy novel Starbloods. If you'd like to participate in this link-up yourself, check out either Paperfury or Further Up and Further In to see how. Here we go!

What’s their favourite book/movie/play/etc.?
Rouyn enjoys any book or scroll on illusionists, but he also enjoys stories of old legends. He especially loves a story about the famous human illusionist who used tricks and wit to outmatch beings with magic. 

Is there anything they regret doing?
He has no control over this but he feels guilt and regret for not having his starblood abilities already. He feels like he's insufficient as a prince of Calsidor because of that. 

If they were sick or wounded, who would take care of them and how?
Rouyn lives with his adopted parents. Whenever he's unwell, his adopted mother takes care of him, usually with herbs.

Is there an object they can’t bear to part with and why?
His family ring. This is the official seal for the Crown Prince and one of his few personalized gifts from his birth parents. 

What are 5 ways to win their heart (or friendship)?
  • Show interest in illusions
  • Win his pegasus Landora's favor
  • Really enjoy oranges
  • Care about him for who he is not his position
  • Be supportive

Describe a typical outfit for them from top to bottom.
The traditional wear in his location is a toga with sandals, but he much prefers his tunic and pants with boots and surcoat, but it's often too warm for it. 

What’s their favorite type of weather?
He likes cooler weather, which is only in the fall and summer for him since he lives in a Mediterranean environment, but he longs to go north and experience colder environments there. 

What’s the worst fight they’ve ever been in?
Rouyn has gotten into an argument with his adoptive father who's very aloof about how he wishes he'd never raised him and had his birth father, cause his adopted hasn't been very involved in his life. Their relationship hasn't been the same since.

What names or nicknames have they been called throughout their life?
His adopted brother called him "Rou-Rou" when they were little, but he's mostly addressed as "my prince" or "your highness." 

What makes their heart feel alive?
Flying on his pegasus Landora's back.
