In the Shadow of the Colossus
Mustachio'd half-orc gambler
Alvise is a wealthy half-orc from Novara. He enjoys gambling, including dicing, boxing, and horse racing. He is an older man, but still lives much like a kid.
Unlike many people in The Republic of Tarascon, Alvise has avoided taking any military service in his lifetime. Alvise will tell you he doesn’t agree with the wars that he is asked to fight in, but others will tell you he’s a coward. He has always been on the seedier side of life due to his need to avoid being drafted, and because of the dishonour brought upon him because of his lack of service. He has become fairly wealthy living and gambling in Novara, but he has little land to speak of, save his house and the facilities for his race horses. As such, he has little actual power, despite being quite wealthy.
