CHARACTER NAME: Snowe Vingerhut
Lazlo's adoptive brother, Snowe is the son of the Lord of Razril. he trained to be a Knight of [[Gaien]], like his friend, and is friends with the other close-knit group of knights that is Jewel, Keneth, Paula, and Tal. Snowe is often treated favorably because of his father, which upsets Commander Glen very much.
Snowe suffers from both cowardice and rash behavior, which leads him into trouble when the pirate Brandeau attacks. Snowe flees, leaving Lazlo to take command and win a victory. Snowe is jealous, but resolves to try again when the pirate Dario attacks Razril. Snowe's rash behavior leads him to persue the fleeing pirates, but the pirates intend to ambush Snowe's ship. However, Lazlo moves to rescue Snowe, and the pirates flee, unable to fend off two ships. Snowe becomes extremely jealous of his friend. When the pirates attack a second time, Snowe goes to investigate the mysterious light on the roof, despite Katarina's orders not to enter the hall. He finds Commander Glen, who has collasped and is dying from the Rune, and Lazlo, who faints once Commander Glen dies and turns to ash.
Snowe immediately shifts Glen's death onto him in a panic, causing him to be exiled from Razril. Snowe is then instated as Commander, but he quickly forges an alliance with Kooluk so that the people of Razril will not be made into slaves. Snowe sells Razril to the Kooluk, and is given the position of cleansing the ocean of pirates. He finds Kika's gang and prepares to attack, but Lazlo has joined up with her, and easily repels Snowe's attacks. Distraught, Snowe returns to Razril, only to find he is not welcome there.
He is exiled from his own home, and is brought before his friend, who offers Snowe the opportunity to join, but Snowe refuses, and is sent onto the sea much the same Lazlo was. Snowe is rescued and becomes a pirate, eventually gaining command over a ship and attacking Razril, but Lazlo, who has just liberated Razril, is there, and defeats Snowe again. Snowe is again offered the opportunity to be in Lazlo's army, but he refuses a second time, and sets him on the ocean. Snowe is confused. He doesn't understand why people keep abandoning him, while people flock to Lazlo.
Snowe's ship sinks later, and his is left clinging on a piece of driftwood. Lazlo rescues him again, and he offers Snowe again the opportunity to join him. Snowe understands his weakness, and accepts the his offer. Snowe works diligently under his adoptive brother, and begins to relate to him, since Snowe realizes he will never see his father again, just like Lazlo never had a father.
He has a soft, easy to look at appearance because everything about him has a light color. Snowe is pale-skinned, white-blonde and his eyes are a baby blue. He's usually seen in armor of some sort or dressed in casual adventure clothing with boots, a shirt and something protective over it.
He might not be regal anymore but his name is still noble and he's always well-dress and tries to never be seen as a dirty person. Snowe has a meticulous routine about the way he brushes his hair so it stays in just the right place where it swoops over on the right side of his face.
Snowe has two personalities, I'll explain both here but he takes after the latter.
When we meet Snowe, he seems like a pretty nice guy and many people seem to like him because he's always kind-faced and has no ill-will towards others. Unfortunately, once we realize that he likes to be the center of attention as if he's the star pupil, we see that he has a nasty jealous side that runs so deep he would purposely put someone else out and rat them to be something they weren't. Snowe ratted out someone he considered a brother when he was no longer looked upon favorably by his superiors. That jealousy stems from having too many siblings and not nearly enough attention for the oldest brother who has the pressures of always having to be the best.
Snowe is awful with stressful situations, he just cannot handle them and frequently freaks out, even making up he is hurt so he would get attention until he is much calmer. There is no real way for him to deal with it and until he has, he tries to run away, many people call him a coward for what he has done in the past. He's considered a traitor, a sell out and over all an idiot for the things he's done against Razril for the good of others and trying to make up for his short comings.
This rush into situations to try to fix things usually ends up being failure for him, but when he was thrown out by the people of Razril and left out to sea, he became a different person.
The frustration and anger helped him live because he was too stubborn to let himself be disrespected and die like that. After becoming a pirate, he had thrown away some of his morals to become the one thing he promised he'd never become, he didn't care anymore because it was a way of survival and he was often still as stubborn as an Ox. He refused to admit that he was sorry for the things he'd done and he literally would accept death rather than admit his problem.
Once he was left out to sea due to losing a ship battle, he realized that he was nothing. This admission allowed him to find what was left of his friendship with Lazlo, once he admitted his shortcomings and accepted them he had became a stronger character. He faced the worst parts of himself and it made him a better man, he turned out to be stronger knowing that he needed to stop being so arrogant.
Now, he lives a quiet life trying to make up for the things he's done. He shows strong abilities find that he wants people to respect him not for being a noble but because he did something great. He wants to be considered a greatman and he's on his way of being there by always being open, understanding and kind to others while keeping his strength and virtue in tact.
He has a Flowing Rune and he's magnificent with a sword.
