Lines around pale blue eyes tell the tale of age on an otherwise youthful appearance. Dancing about, his eyes are always alert and studying the surroundings. Ashby's skin is tanned lightly and he sports a rather thick, but very well maintained beard, allowing it to grow no longer than an inch with clean lines. The man's brown hair is quite long, reaching down to his shoulders and kept back in a tight ponytail. Standing at six foot four, his build is just a touch above average, speaking to a rather active lifestyle.

Public History

Hundreds of years ago, Ashby de'Mandrake had risen in the ranks of Amber's Army, serving with valor and distinction. A famed and controversial figure of the time, he frequently served on the front lines until he had suddenly disappeared when presumed killed in the midst of an operation deep in shadow, where he had stayed behind so his men might return home and complete their objective. Now, he returns, an apparent amnesiac, remembering little to nothing of his past and trying to do what he can to put the pieces of his life back together after more than two hundred years of being presumed dead.

Legendary Reputation

Ashby de'Mandrake is something of a living legend amongst those in the military. From the lowest foot soldier to those that spend men's lives upon the chessboard that is the battlefield, they have heard of him. For decades, word had been passed by word of mouth, commendations, laurels and grudging respect. Not all of his comrades loved his wily and unpredictable tactics; the way he could appear with a group of trusted men where you least expected him, could out-maneuver the foe (and quartermasters for critical supplies), and being able to read and respond quickly to battlefield situations. He has a polarizing effect on his superiors and those that serve under him. Loved and envied, his presence (and rumored involvement) in a military engagement would have a definitive impact.
