NAME: Raymond


TRILOGY: The Lord of the Rings™

DATE OF BIRTH AND AGE (AS OF T.A. 2941/3019): T.A. 2988 – aged 31 in 3019

PLACE OF BIRTH: Minas Tirith, Gondor



HAIR COLOUR AND APPEARANCE: Brown with flowing curls, usually unruly. The length varies.

EYE COLOUR: Light brown

BODY TYPE AND HEIGHT: Slim, athletic physique of average height.

OVERALL APPEARANCE: Raymond can be described as a relatively handsome man, with brown eyes, dark flowing curls and a meticulously combed beard; that is when he actually takes care of himself. His work and travels consume most of his time so he is often seen with unruly hair and an untrimmed beard. He has an athletic build and is considered quite strong. Raymond chooses simple, peasant-like clothes in his daily life, garments that allow him to move quickly and easily, such as leather pants and loose shirts.

DISTINGUISHING MARKS: Nothing notable except for an intricately carved key, worn as a pendant around his neck.

WEAPONS: Thin sword, intricately designed elvish dagger


STRENGTHS: Raymond’s most significant strength is his sharp mind; his extraordinary cleverness and quick-thinking can easily get him out of difficult situations. While he is skilled with a blade, he values diplomacy and thus is known for his smooth-talking and persuasion skills. Another trait which he possesses to a great extent is unwavering bravery, even before the greatest of perils.

WEAKNESSES: Sometimes a great gift can also become a curse; Raymond’s bright mind can be a dark place at times. Unbeknownst to him, the young man is suffering from a destructive cocktail of mental illnesses such as social anxiety, thought disorder, paranoid ideation, derealization and  transient psychosis – better known as the schizotypal disorder in the modern world. Therefore, he sometimes comes off as eccentric, odd and even paranoid.

ASPIRATIONS: As a result of leading an unconventional life, Raymond has always had unconventional goals. Instead of aiming for riches and a respectable notary career like his father’s, his dream had always been to learn as much as he could about anything and everything on this world. He strives to be the best and excel at whatever he occupies himself with. Even greater is his wish to be of service to those around him and put his skills into good use. 

FEARS: Despite the rocky relationship with his father, Raymond has always been anxious about letting his parent down. At the same time though he fears and loathes the possibility of ever becoming like his father, for he sees his life mundane and purposeless. That is exactly Raymond’s biggest fear - leading a life not worth talking about, a life with no greater meaning.

PERSONALITY: Raymond is described as a troubled genius, one who is hungry for knowledge but frustrated that he has not yet found his true calling. He is represented as a bastard who  grows up as a peasant, and somebody who opposes religion and religious notions - consequently, he is a social outcast, a role he has grown to accept and therefore acts like one. He is said to be very spontaneous and somewhat reckless, always occupying himself with everything and anything all at once. Those who don't know him well only see his arrogant exterior but in truth he often doubts himself. He is loyal to the bone to certain people and grows very protective when the time calls for it.

HISTORY: Raymond was born and raised in Minas Tirith. He is the illegitimate son of Rylan, a prominent notary of Gondor, and Xayah, a refugee woman from Harad who mysteriously disappeared after giving birth to him. Raymond's childhood was much different than most people's. He showed great intelligence from the very beginning, something that his father noticed and sought to cultivate. Young Raymond succeeded in almost any field of work he involved himself but was easily bored, causing him to jump from one activity to another. The dreams his father had for him, making an accomplished lawyer out of him, weren't Raymond's dreams, which caused great bitterness and resentfulness amongst the two.  The young man only wished to explore and learn as much as he could about every little thing around him. Despite Rylan's distaste for his son's choices, he apprenticed him to a leading artist of Gondor. It was only then that Raymond truly had a chance to blossom as an artist. He stayed with his beloved teacher for several years even after completing his apprenticeship, assisting in his workshop  until he decided that he wished to travel and see the world so as to get inspired. Around that time, he became interested in military engineering, having studied the warfare systems of the places he visited each time. When he finally returned to his homeland, he created his own studio. Funded by the Steward of Gondor, Denethor II, Raymond’s war machine designs came to life. When the time came, he protected Gondor during the siege of 3019 and played a significant role in the battle that followed.

''You will never have a greater or lesser dominion than that over yourself... The height of a man's success is gauged by his self-mastery; the depth of his failure by his self-abandonment. And this law is the expression of eternal justice. He who cannot establish dominion over himself will have no dominion over others.''
