Description: Horatio is an athletic boy with wind worn complexion, claw scar in the middle of his back and a bite mark on the backside of his right leg, his hands seem to tremble at random intervals and or when he’s overly emotional, has a slight bump noticeable on his right collar bone.
He wears black three quarter shorts, white T-shirt with a strange grey angel on it, black vest, dark brown cap with goggles on top, slave bracelet that has a chain to a ring on middle finger of his left hand, a silver sleeper in the left ear and a gold stud in the top of the right and a long dark red cloth wrapped around the top of his shorts used as a belt.
Personality: Horatio is a caring and honourable person but can be easily distracted by things that interest him or if he’s off in his own little world. Though when times are dire he’ll put off anything else, but he also has a tendency to put others before himself and this has often lead him to problems for himself in numerous ways.
And because of this tendency to protect people he’s been on the bad end of a fight too many times to count. He prefers not to fight in less it’s absolutely necessary as he’d rather talk his way out of it and find a peaceful solution, but this doesn’t mean he can’t and won’t defend himself or others.
Moral Alignment: Good
Weapons and Equipment: Spear/Staff – Horatio’s weapon is a mystery even to him as he found it in the lows of his country but from what he’s seen it can turn from staff to spear with ease and doesn’t seem to break no matter how hard or much he uses it.
Twin Daggers – Two finely sharpened daggers that are kept in sheaths behind his back, that he uses in close combat situations to either attack or defend in said close proximity.
Special Skills: Skilled hunter, well trained in spear/staff and dagger use, survivalist and has great knowledge of plants and the qualities they have.

Place Of Birth: Raoush, Planet Noria
History: Horatio was born and raised in Raoush and like most other kids his family were all close nit and knew they all had a part to play and a job to do, and Horatio was no different because he always did his job even though he never really wanted too. But he was good at hiding that fact and lived through his childhood learning the secrets of his people, as well as the specific skills and abilities that were noticed in him early in life.
When he was 10 years old Horatio was resting on a tree branch outside of the family tree and after about half an hour of resting the branch broke under his weight, as he fell towards the ground at blistering speeds Horatio was of course fearing for his life. Being 10 and soon to be dead didn't really ring well with him and as he came closer to the ground he noticed something sticking out of the tree, hoping for some brief respite in regards to his fall Horatio reached out for the stick.
To his amazement the stick bent quite a bit and then flung back to straightness while he hung on for dear life, and unsure what to do Horatio knew if he dropped to the ground he'd be killed by the predators below. He also knew that his family wouldn't go looking for him till after night time and if they believed he fell then they'd not even bother, due to the rules about going to ground level didn't extend to retrieving dead bodies. Horatio ended up sleeping on the top side of the stick and was awoken at sunrise by the growls and snarls of predators below him, they were eying off the boy and this frightened him and his quick movements caused him to spin round on the stick. As he hung there the predators tried getting bites of him by running up the tree a short way then jumping, but two were successful though they were only able to scratch Horatio on the back and give him a bite on the leg.
Giving up once they saw the boy wasn't coming down Horatio was left on his own and ended up pulling the stick out of the tree unintentionally, once he hit the ground he released it wasn't a stick but a weapon. But now he was a 10 year old in a hostile environment but he made due with what he had and sheltered himself in an old building, over the next three years Horatio became a skilled hunter and fighter as he had to battle daily with the predators for food and survival. Near the beginning of his fourth year on the ground Horatio walked towards the water in hopes of finding new food, but once on the shore he was spotted by slave traders who captured him and sold him into slavery.
Horatio was sold to a rich and perverted man that kept the boy from his weapon and did many unspeakable things to him on a regular basis, in his free time Horatio tried to keep his abilities honed as much he could and was even able to retrieve his spear. One night the rich man came to Horatio for yet another session of deviance, but this time Horatio had enough and ended up driving his spear deep into the man's chest. After retrieving all of his belongings Horatio ran from the rich lands of Steffson and made his way to greener pastures, in hopes of being able to live a life he wanted to live without restriction.
