Kaeso Messor (Soothsayer - Magic User)


Created by krmould


Description

Kaeso is a tall (6'9"), gloomy, wizard with a distinct limp. His head is bald. He speaks with a slow, basso profundo (deep bass) voice. His skin is ashen and stretched tight over his skeleton. Kaeso prefers to wear a Roman white tunic (with the narrow red strip of the Equites) and toga when possible. Recently, he has taken to wearing Celtic plaid trousers under his tunic. No one is quite sure whether this is a serious style choice, response to Britannica's colder weather or some sort of odd attempt at humour. Kaeso wears a hardened leather cuirass over his tunic and under his toga. He wields a gladius and quarterstaff with considerable skill. A hardened veteran and Caesar's former bodyguard, he is still as dangerous with conventional weapons as he is with his recently discovered magical abilities.
