Gem Valtara is a human male most known for being the Defacto leader in the Triumvirate of Ceyreto, leading the Kingdom of Valtara in the absence of King Robert, and his involvement with the Loyalists in the Valtaran Civil War.
Gem is a 6'2" human with dark brown hair, grey eyes, and pale skin. He has an athletic build attributed to lifelong military training and some combat. He typically wears a long dusty brown coat, a mask covering the lower parts of his face, a black glove on his left hand and a red one on his right, and black boots. He seems to keep this attire throughout most of the day, even in rather inappropriate situations.
Gem, named so after the last item his mother left for him, was born to Enriq Valtara III as his bastardized firstborn son on XXXX XX, XXXX, the king during the Valtaran Civil War, and is the elder half-brother to King Robert Valtara I. Gem was born as a result of relations that his father had with a servant girl thus making him a bastard. His mother however had died at childbirth and so his father, ever merciful, took Gem in as his own. He continued his bastard status until he was 5 years of age, at which his father, having no eligible heirs after years of trying with his wife, had declared Gem his heir, now fully embracing him. Enriq's brother, Ignacio, took this as a grave insult to allow someone as impure as 'that bastard' rule and thus started the 20-year civil war.
