: usual moods Garviel tends towards thoughtful, and sometimes mournful. He has lost all of his closest friends and brothers in a galaxy-spanning civil war. He will most often be contemplating either his present actions, or his future ones. He does not dwell on the past, except how it relates to the present, though his dead brothers continue to haunt him. Due to a recent bout of insanity, he can become very wrathful or mournful at turns, to the point of open weeping, or berserk rages. He is phlegmatic by nature, not melancholic, so when work is to be done, these moods will pass away. Occasionally, he simply wishes to die, and be reunited with his dead brothers, but his own honorable nature doesn't allow him to break his oaths to defend humanity, and uphold the Imperial Truth.

interaction with others Garviel is somewhat reserved at first, a phlegmatic soul by nature. He is generally to the point, though his bluntness rarely is insulting, being possessed of an honorable heart, and will show mercy to any foe that he can manage to show mercy to. This does not apply to traitors and daemons. He will kill them out of hand. Most of the time he tends to seem to have lot of stiffness to his interactions though, and is told even by his friends that he is very prim and proper, "straight up and down" as they put it. It was his honor that impresses most other characters strongly, when they first meet him. Even people not from his culture tend to remark on how innocent he seems. He is generally considered the most human of the Astartes, clearly understanding their place in Imperial society as protectors of normal humans, and making mortal friends. He tends towards formal speech, as all astartes do, though if angry or in extremis he will drop some of the formality and be very, very direct. He doesn't talk much, preferring action and contemplation, or long quiet dialogues with a single person to a large speech. That being said, he is a fairly empathetic man, and an excellent judge of character, as well as a leader of men primarily through example and sensible battlefield tactics. He doesn't insinctually reach for the bravura gesture, prefering a more phlegmatic way of doing things, unlike his gene-father.

and interactions with friends Garviel is still very reserved, even with his friends, earning the sobriquet "The Quiet one" from his gene-father, Horus Lupercal, during his tenure as a member of the Mournival. He is extremely loyal, to point where he stood against Horus and the traitorous members of the Mournival when they rebelled against the Emperor of mankind. He will do almost anything for his brothers, and shows great affection for them from time to time. He is protective of his female friends, such as the remembrancers Mersadie Oliton and Euphrati keeler, at one point kissing Euphrati on the forehead as a sort of benediction. He values honesty and loyalty amongst his friends over anything else, once standing up for an unpopular poet because he told the truth when no one else would.

1st Person | Action Example
[ Garviel snarls over the watch ]
So, another little trick of the spheres, eh? Another dream of my dead brothers, and another war to win in the name of humanity. Very well. In the Emperor's name I'll fight until the secular truth of the world burns like a flame, and the demons are cast down and broken.

3rd Person | Prose Example
Loken is out, stalking the city streets after midnight. A huge hunter of demons and other foul things, he stoops on a low roof, his armor hissing a bit as he scents the air, seeking out their fetid stink. He has spent 6 months hunting daemons alone, the fact that there might now by others beside him. His bolter and chainsword are maglocked to his back, as they would be too loud, but he holds his combat blade in an overhand, slasher's grip, helm-enhanced eyes seeking out another target to add to his significant tally. This night, as for all nights with the Grey Angel, is one that sees only war, though it is a war in the shadows.
