Quick Biography

"'I trouped, traveled, loved, lost, trusted and was betrayed.' Write that down and burn it for all the good it will do you." Kvothe's terse summary of his own life, while accurate in broad terms, manages to avoid touching on parts of his life such as the Chandrian, demonic beings who murdered his parents and troupe, his years as a homeless street rat in the city of Tarbean, his daring gambles that get him into the University and keep him there (for a time), his friends and rivals, his magic, his music. It isn't possible to summarize even a portion here in more detail than this, you'll have to get the book and read it for yourselves.

"I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me"

Not as tall as you'd expect, with bright, true-red hair like flames, green eyes that appear to change shade with strong emotions, and a strong baritone. There is generally a subtle but profound difference in his appearance between when he is acknowledging his identity as Kvothe, and when he is being the inkeeper Kote, mostly in his eyes and the way he holds himself.


Kvothe is a brilliant man, with a mind that once learned a language in a day and a half (with no sleep), and a now long-buried but insatiable curiosity. He is older than he is, always has been, but younger than one who has heard of him might expect. He is naturally suspicious with a very dark side to him that most wouldn't expect, born of the horror and pain he experienced as a boy.


RP History

Entered: Dec. 15th, 2007
Kvothe was very disturbed to walk into his bar and find it not his bar. He was quite wary of the mansion at first, though it was more out of habit than mistrust that he continued to give out his name as 'Kote.' However, this caused him to unexpectedly butt heads with the vampire David Talbot, who with his vampiric senses could tell that this fact wasn't quite true. Once they got past the arguments that resulted from that they actually became good friends, with Kvothe offering David what was for him a surprising amount of trust. He was disappointed when David apparently vanished from the Mansion, and had few friends there until Bastas, his student and close friend from home arrived. Even more unexpectedly than anything else, after some cautious flirting the two ended up in a relationshippish thing that was shockingly unawkward and was basically just them carrying on as they'd always been only with more snogging and sex. He seems to have embraced this experience as an unexpected opportunity to start over, with no one knowing of his past.
