[center [font "bell mt" [size18 [b THE RIGHTEOUS MARQUIS ]]
*As most princes are, he is given a city to be the Marquis of, and he officially becomes it/moves there when his brother becomes emperor.
*A [b HUGE] part of his character is how much he values clans and legitimacy, hence why he supports the empress' son and no other prince regardless of who he thinks is most fit. I mean, come on, the empress' son is like four-six years old.
*He's prob the purest character on the character roster tbh, and he's the least manipulative
*I personally headcannon him being 27-32 because I don't think the time frame fits him being the emperor's brother by the emperor before him otherwise.
*You could make it where he is either extremely close with his brother or he is super distant from his brother and the palace
[size18 [b RELATIONSHIPS]]
*Younger brother of the recently deceased emperor
*Step-son of [http://rp.eliteskills.com/vc.php?c=388711 [font "Bell MT" Empress Dowager]], son of previous emperor
*Uncle of the four princes, brother-in-law of [http://rp.eliteskills.com/vc.php?c=388218 [font "Bell MT" Scheming Consort]]
*Dowager prob doesn't like him, but is nice-ish bc he's still a legit son if the emperor
*He thinks Scheming Consort is sketchy af, and prob doesn't like her, low-key looks into her constantly??
*He supports the Imperial Heir, bc he's the only son born to an empress, and Marquis loves family ties and legitimacy
*Doesnt dislike the other princes, but doesn't support their claims to the throne.
*Prob thinks [http://rp.eliteskills.com/vc.php?c=387994 [font "Bell MT" Ambitious Minister]] is sketchy too, by association with Scheming Consort-- maybe vice versa?
*I personally headcannon him and Chaotic General knowing each other/being on the same level, possibly friends?
