Physical Description

Appearance-

Tall, heavily built and with his fair share of old wounds, Tarvitz is an imposing figure at the best of times. Sporting a determined if world weary stare, his weather-beaten skin reflects a hard life of having traveled under countless alien suns, matched by his fading shoulder length hair. Adorning the upper left of his brow and encompassing his eye socket, the pale green glow of a cybernetic sensor clashes against his dark blue organic left eye. Around its edges, the old shrapnel scars and burned tissue can still be seen, clashing against his proud features.

Attire-

Rarely seen outside of his battle armour save for certain formal events or gatherings, Tarvitz favours wearing it even during personal meditation. He retains two seperate suits of warplate, the first being a salvaged set of clone paratrooper armour and the second his old Jensaarai armour.

Knight Errant (General Aspect)

Rather than a true member of Clan Odan-Urr, Tarvitz is an outsider who has pledged himself to their service. Having spent several years operating without oversight - save the Jensaarai creed - he has an independent streak. Ka is more than capable, and most comfortable, relying on his own abilities or close close allies than a massive organization. Often forced to operate within hostile or outright lawless territories to pursue his goals, he has become quite adept at maintaining a relatively low profile when required. However, Tarvitz finds it difficult to walk away from acts of cruelty, and he has more than once alerted a foe to his presence whilst stepping in to defend those in need of his help.

Dragonslayer (General Aspect)

Some say that a man is judged by the quality of his enemies, and it's an idea Tarvitz has taken to heart. He requires a foe to constantly measure himself against, forcing himself to surpass them. While these are often tangible threats, from Sith Warriors to petty thugs, they can be something as basic as his own limitations. While this mentality has pushed Tarvitz to relentlessly improve himself, he is rarely able to find joy in smaller victories because of it. He also knows in his heart that it will ultimately lead to his death, fighting against something he can never hope to overcome.

Lead From The Front (Personality Aspect)

Plain speaking and dutiful, Tarvitz has always favoured a hands-on approach to life. So far as he is concerned respect is earned by a willingness to perform grunt-work no matter your rank, and leadership should be proven by placing the well-being of others ahead of you. If you are asking someone to wade through mud to achieve an objective, in Tarvitz's eyes you should be in there with them. Such an approach fosters loyalty among his comrades, and has made Tarvitz adept at both thinking on the move and adapting his plans while under fire. However, it often causes him to clash with more conventional leaders and he has trouble seeing events on a greater scope.

Outside The Box (Personality Aspect)

Ka Tarvitz is a lateral thinker, and when he encounters problems or dilemmas, he is very good at improvising and coming up with alternative solutions. This allows Ka Tarvitz to find ways out of situations others might give up on. While these solutions are often not so obvious to others, Ka Tarvitz can typically explain and lead others through his plan...as long as they are patient and willing enough to trust him outside thinking.

Know When to Fold 'Em (Combat Aspect)

While Tarvitz will fight uphill battles for the right reasons, he is far from willing to risk everything in an unwinnable conflict. It is, after all, just as important for someone to know their limits as much as their strengths. He has become accustomed to creating openings by using the environment to attempt to distract his opponents before temporarily withdrawing from fights. Until he can re-engage from a what he perceives as a position of strength. Unfortunately, while an excellent tactic when working alone, he finds it difficult to employ when working alongside allies. Without prior planning or a leader to fully co-ordinate their efforts, he will often resort to using himself as a distraction to cover their retreat.

Leveling The Playing Field (Combat Aspect)

Tarvitz is far from the Brotherhood's best combatant, and he would be the first to admit it. Many others are better shots, better with a blade or more adept with the Force, and as such Tarvitz focuses upon limiting an opponent's abilities in battle. Whether this is drawing an acrobatic foe into a tight corridor or using minor telekinetic shoves to keep a swordsman off-balance, he will always seek to rob someone of their best advantage rather than charging headlong into battle. However, while he has become talented at analyzing a foe in the midst of combat, and adapting his tactics between each blow, Tarvitz can still be caught flat-footed by entirely new techniques or too much shifting information.
