Soak: 6 Unarmored/11 Armored

Appearance: His form is large and broad shouldered the very image of greek muscularture, in past the prime of youth. His smile may be inviting until his long teeth show far longer than they should as
well as his talon like fingernails. He is dressed for travel, both armed well and armed he is rougish both in charm and figure. Settled on his head is a startling bright red cap, set with a hawks feather that hides the hair from his face.

Background: The young boy was the second child of a set of five, born to an Italian family along the peninsula. While the eldest three children were not graced with the gift, Emilio however bore the fruit of concentrated faerie blood more so than any of his siblings. As a child he was a bundle of energy, trouble, and by strength of arms, a scrappy bully who lorded over other children.
From his youngest age his friends have been other fae who saught nothing more than to bring him amusement and to enjoy the force of the stories that followed along behind him.
After growing up to a young man his apprenticeship started under his Father who was a redcap while his mother attended to the other children as well as Milvi Antiquiti. His apprenticeship took him all over the order, allowing him to learn the ins and outs of the order the blessings of his blood made him strong. He learned a broad array of people skills, working with magi, merchants, and peasantry. As he grew older trouble seemed to follow him wherever he went as his father lead him into the Levant as the Order of Suleiman had pressed to more active aggression with the order and another press of the crusades, left him for no lack with the need to defend himself. Always looking older than his age the pair shot across the landscape of the order, at times saving both members of the order from rival forces, which was considered a blessing until a crusader blessed him for his generosity, he screamed with pain as his blood rebelled and his teeth fell from his mouth ensuring a quick retreat from the men he had just saved.
After his time within the Levant he returned home where the young man did his best to follow his mothers desire to expand the family, though perhaps not in the way she desired as carousing, partying and one night dalliances lead to him slowly changing the genetic composition of the theban tribunal one stop at a time. In this time he had more of a chance to bond with his family between seasons of learning. Especially taking a shine to the eldest magi sibling still in apprenticeship, where Emilio was outspoken and able to drawn in women with ease Agapitus was hoping for the perfect romance in stories. A true friendship and desire to watch out for his slightly akward brother, however buisness would continually have him pulled across the order.
After his apprenticeship, he picked up languages easily while he traveled making him an instant success as he could be sent nearly anywhere within the order, the combative ability to take care of himself as any challenge was one he whole heartly put himself against, even if the fae often orchestrated instances in which he could play the hero to their narratives. As time drew on they changed the routes and with the opening of a new covenant in Patras that included his younger sibling he volunteered to be the redcap that called it his home covenant...both to enjoy the closeness of family, but to enjoy the drama of the patrons and fae that called thebes home.

This sounds like a cool flaw. Is it connected to bloodcap blood or is it due to something else in his backstory?

I'm guessing that once his teeth fall out they're gone for good but could be re-grown with Creo Corpus magic? If that's the case, it's a good thing he has a personal source of Creo vis to pay for his magic dentistry!

It is indeed associated with the bloodcap line, its recommended (though not required) to have a malediction that involved the scripture or the sight of crosses...either causes the unfortunate effect (get to choose which though). There are minor and major versions of this, the lesser causes pain, the greater causes a light wound per round. He avoids the christian faith like the plague for this reason, but it pays off in brutal strength, from a dark lineage that dips their cap into blood after the kill. Luckily it can be healed like normal, that being said while the power of christ will likely compel him to silence the sermonized oppressor before be bleeds out from the piety.

[strike]Your description says you have picked up many languages, but your sheet only shows Itallian and Classic Greek...[/strike]
Just saw gift of tongues

Which epic figure is he "descended" from?

Gift of Tongues (minor) out of true lineages pg 105 Allows verbal commmunication/understanding of any and all languages which thats an extrapolation. He can speak like a polyglot, but only has the written skills in his birth language, and the one used by this portion of the order.

Agapitus would also have to have the true friend virtue, which he does not.

Bah missed that little bit, ill change it out, added more characteristics. Also remembered to add second sight from strong fae blood.

Looks good, go ahead and post him to mythic companions.
