Truth, lies, and in between
Wrong, cant be undone
Oh slipped, from the tip of
Your tongue - Kenny Wayne Shepherd
My good blade carves the casques of men,
My tough lance thrusteth sure,
My strength is as the strength of ten,
Because my heart is pure.
The shattering trumpet shrilleth high,
The hard brands shiver on the steel,
The splinter'd spear-shafts crack and fly,
The horse and rider reel:
They reel, they roll in clanging lists,
And when the tide of combat stands,
Perfume and flowers fall in showers,
That lightly rain from ladies' hands.
As early as he was able, Perrin ran through Broadmoor Keep. Most times he would come in with some wounded bird (his favorite for some reason) or some stray dog or cat. Much to the chagrin of his family. Even when he was little he tended to remain separate from his eldest brother and heir Harys. Most times he could be found with the Ravens that carried the messages or out on the training grounds. Some thought he was moody, but in reality he was quiet and thinking. Always watchful. Not that much different than Harys. But the differences become apparent where Harys is more cautious, Perrin was more prone to act. This has caused a bit of troubles during his early years. This trait came to be even more pronounced when he would drink and it soon became apparent that the best course for Perrin, least he bring down the ire of his father after taking action against the simplest slight was that he now refrains from drinking too much.
Perrin did excel on the training grounds. Where he always looked up to his brother and always wanted to be one better. Perhaps it was to please his father or gain some recognition. Combine this with ihis quick to temper actions many a training match between him and Harys would end up more a full blown fight where the instructors would have to pull Perrin off. And then face his father. Two more brothers came, the one that causes Perrin to laugh the most is of course Aron. While Aron is younger than Perrin, Perrin often looks up to his younger brother for his flamboyant style. Something that Perrin just isn't.
While Perrin would do anything asked by his father, Perrin often looks to his mother, Perriane, for true guidance. Still Perrin would go his own way many times. Something allowed since he was the second born. The one big bright spot in Perrin's life was the birth of his sister Ceinlys. From the moment she was born Perrin was drawn to her. He has always protected her, many times to the embarrassment of Ceinlys, and is probably the biggest threat to Perrin's barely kept in check reactions. For if he thought anyone would cause her harm or slight her in the least Perrin has been and will always be there for her. From the first moment she arrived Perrin had changed, many say for the better. Quick to laughter when there was none before, more inclined to rein in his rash actions, his sister was perhaps the thing that Perrin needed most to have happened.
Many times in youth Perrin never felt at place with his station but as the years grew on he became comfortable being the second born. He has embraced the ideals of his family, that his brother is the rightful heir. To him he has taken on the duties of being Broadmoor's defender. The recent betrothal to Lady Alys Charlton was another example of Perrin quietly accepting the requirements of his father. Never saying anything to anyone of his thoughts on the matter, though some say that he was found much more often on the training grounds where he could let out his aggression, he once again kept his feelings to himself. Then when it was called off some say that for a good while there was a smile on his face and a spring in his step.
Leslyn Haigh - Father. Would do anything that he asked, dutifully.
Perriane Haigh - Mother. Perrin's confidant. The one that seemed to understand Perrin's willful mind.
Harys Haigh - First born and rightful Heir. Competion between the two brothers has been intense at times. Now days they get along rather well. NPC
Aron Haigh - Two years his junior, Aron is looked upon by Perrin as being a bit flashy, to angry and to intense. But when pressed Perrin will admit to looking up to his younger brother for just that reason. Not to mention that Aron was the one person that could always make Perrin laugh even in the most dire situations.
Harlyn Haigh - Still younger, Harlyn is more inclined to the politics of things. Something that Perrin is not so adept at and some say has no desire to be. But he's still his brother and if you mess with one of the High siblings you have messed with them all.
Lady Ceinlys Erenford nee Haigh - The birth of Ceinlys was the cause of change in Perrin. Where his brash actions and temper would easily come out and the drop of a hat, the little girl was able to bring to him some sense of restraint. Perrin has always protected her and will always do so. Not to unlike his brothers. Next to his father Perrin would do anything that Ceinlys would ask of him.
Donnel Haigh - The little brother (that is till Alyn came along). But he will never loose the nickname of such. Six years his elder, Perrin has taken it as a duty to train Donnel and there in lies the frustration. Where Perrin is serious on the training grounds, Donnel would rather joke and kid. Always the peacekeepr, Donnel takes after Ceinlys more than any of the brothers.
Alyn Haigh - The youngest of the Haigh siblings, Alyn is still but a small child. Still Perrin takes him when he can and shows him the life beyond the walls of Broadmoor.
Perrin is a fairly large man. Standing just over 6 feet tall and weighing almost 210 pounds.
The most notable feature is the scar on his right cheek. Almost a cross it runs from below the eye across the cheek it's self.
During the fourth day of the siege of Stonebridge, at one of the ebbs of battle, Perrin had removed his helm to get air and run his fingers through his hair. Purely by chance one of the Ironborn archers had let fly an arrow. It fell, catching Perrin at just the right angle to skid off his cheekbone. Falling from his horse his chin struck the ground hard (explaining the smaller scar at the bottom of his chin) and knocking him out. Thus ended the fight against the Ironborn for Perrin.
Allies and Foes
More comfortable at home in Broadmoor and more than willing to let Harys go to the social functions that a Haigh's presense was required, times change. With Harys busy doing what ever much of the social duties have fallen to Perrin. Now, assigned as Emissary for Trade (notably to the Naylands of Stonebridge) Perrin has found himself thrust into the spotlight. You know what they say, once the boy leaves the farm there is no getting him home again.
