Solban | Stag | Retired Guard

10 Favourites
Oh yeah that was about time wasn't it!? Solban finally did get his New reference =D I am pretty proud how it came out, though I fought very hard getting all the little pieces (feathers, rack, paint design, name) in the right place without making it a big mess. Maybe I will rearange it again some time, but for now I think I am happy with it. Also, this is the first time I draw a reference with traditional, I had my doubts about it, because it is so much harder to get a good clear view in traditional, but I am pretty happy how it turned out! (I need to fix it up a bit to erase some of the 'messy' points, but I will do that later. too excited, need to upload this :P).

So there he finally is... the stag with the frozen heart =).

Personality: Self-centered - Grumpy - Hateful - Stuborn - Einzelganger
Due to Solbans early loss of his family, he grew up very selfcentered and hateful towards the rest of the world, he considers it most important to always be able to take care of yourself, which is the reason he is always training his body and magic. He is a firm believer in Gealach. Because of his strong believe, he is only faithfull to the king and the oracle, and hates oathbreakers and halfbloods, which he will never hesitate to kill. He is cold blooded an usually does not talk much, he trusts no one except for his god and he always prefers to be alone. He is very devoded to his herd Oakfern, and takes his job as guard very seriously. Unlike most of the other oakferns, he loves the caves he lives in.
Alignment/House: Lawful Evil / Slytherin

Solban was born from a very young naive mom (Glydam), who had just turned mature. She mated with a stag who promissed her everything, but she never saw again afterwards. Her parents thought her to be to young and stupid, and tried to force her to give up her fawn. But she wouldn't and after that her parents refused to help her with her healthy colt. She however, managed to take care of Solban rather well, she went outside the caves often to go and find herbs and food. During those times Solban played and explored the caves, which he grew to love very much. When he was one-and-a-half year old, Glydam did not return from one of her forages, Solban waited for a full moon, but she never came back. Not knowing if his mom had left him, or she had died, solban grew bitter and cold. He was still unable to take care of himself, and strayed the caves growing thinner and thinner, always wondering what had happened to Glydam, vowing he would one day find out.

After half a year, Solban was nearly dying due to starvation. At that time Eleanor, a doe with her own history who wanted to raise status in the oakfern herd, found out about the lost buckling. She searched him out and took him home, knowing a stag could help her little family raise to a higher rank. She took care of him and nursed him back to health, letting him grow up along side her daughter Leilani (Nixxily ) who was of the same age. She trained them and demanded much of her children and teaching them even more, it made solban happy, finally learning how to take care of himself. He trained his magic, speed, strength and stamina everyday. Eleanor soon learned how bitter Solban was, and saw him grow more cold everyday, but it did not matter to her, as she knew it was only for the better. After his mother left, Solban never learned to trust anyone, not even eleanor or leilani. But it was the only place he ever called home after Glydam left.

In autum y755 NA, Eleanor and her newborn son, died from a Jaguar attack, and something snaped inside Solban. Not able to show any emotions, keeping it all in, he started hating the world and everything in it. Especially the fawnlings from other herds, who had forced thim into this dangerous territory. That was the moment he also lost his trust in the god Gealach, though he still is a strong believer. He decided to take a job as guardsmen, vowing to never let harm come to an oakfern pure of blood, again.

In year 759 Solban Sired three fawns, Aegir out of Afroze, and Farfalla and Varamyr out of Leilani. Unable to understand his feelings for Leilani, and to step up for the responsibillity as a father, he fled from his emotions. Because he left Leilani, their fawns where seen as halfboods and them and Leilani where forced to leave oakfern.
Solban traveled for a long time, after which he found rest as a recluse in the Ridgeback range, where he lived almost five years. During this time, he ran into his mother Glydam (Who was apperently still alive), and felt so betrayed by her, he killed her and her son in cold blood. He never mentioned it to anybody knowing Oakfern will not like it, but he has no regrets about it. After five years of reclusement Solban went back to Oakfern.He was allowed back into the herd and his old job as guard by King Pascal, which made him respect Pascal very much, but has been closly watched ever since. Once back in the herd, Solban started training with younger, less experienced fawnling, mostly so he will feel less guilty for leaving his own fawns fatherless.

In year 765 Solban figures out Leilani is still alive and lives on the oakfern surface. After a troublesome start, Solban promisses to stay her mate forever, but has to go back to the tunnels as he feels those are his home. They however, do mate and that spring their son Eclipse is born. Solban from than on travels back and forth to his family in secret. Two years later his daughter Medea is born, their family is starting to become bigger and bigger!
In 772, Leilani decides it is time to move back into the tunnels with their whole family. She convinces the king and is allowed to stay. Solban couldn't be happier, finally, his whole family is togheter. This is probably the happiest time in Solbans life, he trains his children and can finally be with them at all time.

Theravenist's avatar
Either works for me.~ Its whatever would help you the best. ^u^
nerwen-wilwarin's avatar
I have two more designs to go (it will be seven, just couldn't pick XD). Than I will upload it as one big chart, so you can pick and mix among it ;).
Theravenist's avatar
That'll be fun. >u< The other RPer of Nia/Lia's can choose from the other designs too.~ Since I believe they are identical twin sisters.
nerwen-wilwarin's avatar
They are, which would geneticly seen, make the two fawns full brother and sister, while acording to family tree, they are nephew and niece :P (I got all the base coats done, I think I will upload the full thing tomorrow =D)
