Sebastian Essai

The quiet swordsman working for the Boryokudan.

Description:

Height: 5’9"
Weight: 170 lb.
Age: mid-twenties
Home: Ad Astra? (pre-Boryokudan), Murond (Boryokudan)
Weapon: Katana
Theme: Bourne Vivaldi, The Piano Guys

Sebastian Essai appears shorter than his full height of 5’9" due to his fighting style, which favors low crouches and presenting as little of himself as a target as possible. He keeps his black hair cut short and reasonable, and his eyes are so dark they appear to match his hair in color.

He dresses fashionably and functionally, favoring a black leather jacket, dark-washed designer jeans, and tall motorcycle boots. He carries a long katana on his right hip, and uses both the sword and the scabbard in his fighting. His fighting style is modeled on the Old World art of Iaido, and Essai rarely draws his sword before he intends to strike, preferring to keep it sheathed so as not to ever telegraph an attack.

Essai is intensely private, speaking little and focusing more on his actions over his words. He is not a cold or harsh man, just very quiet.

Bio:

Not much at all is known about Sebastian Essai at this point; as of Session 310, he has only encountered Kalil once, sparring inside the city of Murond. Essai proved the stronger swordsman that day, but Kalil held his own.
