He grew up wanting to be a carpenter in Arborea, and he got an apprenticeship not too long after departing childhood.
However, one fateful day, Duke was attacked by Tuxley, a monstrous Kella Ser, when he got too close to them after their construction shift was over. A nasty scar was left on Duke's face which has since faded and healed.
This encounter led Duke to shift his focus towards protecting others, and he has since changed specialties and become an architect specializing in fortresses, walls, and keeping things safe. This job has led him to many realms, as he's been contracted by many communities. On the side, he designs vaults and trains in combat.
Personality-wise, he is very laid back and protective, but to outsiders, he may seen pretty grumpy. Be careful not to do something stupid, or he'll beat you up. Duke doesn't want things he doesn't need, and thus has very little belongings or pets. In the past, he has donated large sums of loonoles to various charities. However, he cherishes what he does have deeply.
Design note: Blind in one eye after the attack. Only disclude it if drawing him as a young adult or baby
