Lord Rubeus le Blont is a Frenchman from roughly the 12th century . He occasionally travels to learn new styles and variations of dance - his favourite of all the noble arts. He teaches when and where he can, and endeavours to improve his skill in this along the way. However, as a younger noble, his job is mostly to watch and listen and absorb. Sometimes he goes a little too far, trying nearly anything that catches his fancy. At the end of the day though, no matter how long his A&S project list may be, dance remains his one true passion.
Rubeus resides in the Barony of Septentria. He counts himself a member of the Canton of Vest Yorvik, although he is no stranger to Beremere and Monadh, and sometimes visits their territories and people.
Rubeus LARPed with Penn and Lucia for years, during which time they would occasionally rant and rave about this thing known as the 'SCA'. He vaguely remembers googling the group nearest to him, but found its website out of date and could only find information regarding heavy armoured combat - an activity which does not interest him. He decided against joining at the time.
In January of 2018, Rubeus was at their home when they opened the 'Mayoral Box' from the Canton of Eoforwic; Lucia had just
bought won the title at the recent 12th Night election. Everything inside fascinated him, and on a whim he re-googled the nearest group to him on my phone. Again, the website was out of date, but he still managed to dig up information on an event called 'Step Spritely', and it was to happen the following month… right behind his apartment! And it promised Dance!
Rubeus decided to give this 'SCA thing' a try, and so he went. The day after, he once again visited the home of Penn and Lucia for a regularly-scheduled gaming session. For most of its duration, he was a vegetable on the couch, having danced long into the night. The conversation went something like this:
“Are you tired?”“… Yes.”
“Do you think you'll do it again?”“… Hell yes.”
And no one can get rid of him now.
Rubeus occasionally dabble in other Arts & Sciences areas such as:
However, none of these capture his interest for very long. Dance on the other hand…
MOAR DANCE! Ahem.
Rubeus hates (despises, [loathes]) surprises. Even 'good/nice' ones, like public praise. Undesirable reactions will occur. Do you ever wonder why he avoids Court? For the love of all that is good in the world, do not surprise him. Thank you!
Rubeus also loves cats.
