Vivacious and often caught citing personal tales of adventure and survival, on the surface Wes can be described as a generally calm but extroverted kind of guy with a slight flair for the dramatic. He has the tendency to play the part of showman and will go out of his way to make any situation perfect for others. If there’s a role to be played, you can bet he’ll play it perfectly. This leads him to be the disingenuous sort – usually acting like he knows less than he leads on and playing dumb, his own judgement coming into question constantly. Playful, he finds amusement in others and will quip many of his interactions with playful teasing, flirting, or sarcastic remarks just to gander a reaction.
That being said, Wes carries with him a soft kind of sincerity. And it’s during moments of calm and peace that this is highlighted; his emotions usually accentuated in his tone of voice, a boyish smile, a twinkle in his eye, maybe even a pensive frown. A remnant of what was a young man still coming into his own, some could say. For which it’s quite easy to miss his true, underlying nature.
Greedy, conniving, and unforgiving. Wes isn't above using manipulation to get what he wants. His time in the Amata Famiglia taught him many things. The first being silence above all. The second, loyalty. He is the type of person that will take a secret to the grave and for such can usually be considered a good confidant. However, those that go against him in his line of business are better served to sleep with the fishes. He'd sooner dispose of someone for getting in his way than continue to work with a thorn at his side. That is, of course, if he doesn't benefit from them being alive. He can be very persuasive
, after all.
As such, he takes his work seriously. Wes isn't the kind that would leave anything halfway. He'll see things through to the end even if said things are considered immoral or cruel.History:
Wes is an Otherworlder and an ex-member of the Amata Famiglia centered around Montselice, an industrial-style city with some minor magical properties and a constant strife over territory. Made up of three families —Torrelli, Lo Castro, and Savaglio— the Amata Famiglia was undisputedly the largest crime organization in the city and thus the constant target of not only other factions, but the law as well. However, the real threat hailed from within the Amata Famiglia itself as all three families often found themselves competing for the role of capomandamento. The person who attained the role would undoubtedly become the boss of the Amata Famiglia and would not only have rights to territory, but their family would be near invincible as well.
Thus, Wes’s life had been set to be a harsh one. Born a shy, dour boy with no real interest in the family business (or the drama, for that matter), he was forced to grow up quickly along with his brother. Many were the times that the two had to fend off for themselves against others and even forced to survive through random hits on adults. It didn’t help that children were expected to be wary of each other, be able to keep a secret, and never speak of their family’s activities. Otherwise, they would be severely punished or, worse, killed.
In order to learn, Wes was often brought along to be a lookout, attend dealings, strategize, as well as learn how to fight. These sessions slowly molded his attitude, and it began to mirror that of proper Savaglio. He began to strive for the position of capomandamento and it showed. His determination had gotten him a recommendation to become the Savaglio family’s future consigliere. However, none of that would come to be as his brother soon betrayed them all. The family was murdered in a raid conducted by the Lo Castros and Torrellis, leaving Wes to be the only survivor.
Distraught and disheartened by his brother’s actions, he realized how stupid the whole charade between the families had been and sought revenge. He damned the Amata Famiglia and acted quick, sooner planting bombs in one of their gatherings. There he confronted his brother, the match ending in both receiving a bullet to their heads.
Yet, like many Otherworlders, Wes awoke in a strange land. A land full of opportunity.
The past behind him but not forgotten, Wes strived to rebuild the Savaglio name. What his family wasn’t able to achieve he would achieve here in Vyldermire. He would amount riches, reputation and, most of all, respect. It didn’t take long until he had adapted to the world. He went rogue, amassed cash, and eventually it was like business as usual. Shakedowns, a few deals here and there, some people going missing, and then the eventual formation of his own group all within the first year. By the second year he was carrying out operations from many of the shadier locales in the world and eventually came to accumulate a small fortune. He even came to own a small bakery in Engloria as well as a shady gambling den. Though how he came to own both and their general use outside of selling pastries and gambling is better left up to the imagination.
It seemed things were looking up for him in this world. And like any Savaglio his ambition grew. Wes wanted to be top dog and, unlike his brother, he’d get there without losing sight of what was really important.Likes:

Losing money :'cGoal/Aspiration:
- Power - If there's one thing that drives this man is the overwhelming need to gain more: more cash, more territory, more respect. It'll drive him to the ends of the Earth if that's what it takes - and he'll drag down anyone who gets in his way.
- Expanding – While his business is mainly composed of drugs and weaponry, Wes would like to include any other businesses from which he could profit from.
- Rebuilding his family – The death of the Savaglio family left Wes with a deep-rooted hole in his heart. He wishes to rebuild his family’s name and for that he would need people he could trust at his side.
- A Way Home - Plagued with headaches, he would like to see his way back home if only at least once. He wants to know what became of his brother and the Amata Famiglia. Plagued with headaches, he fears going back may just end his life.
- Swimming - Although he doesn't fear being in water, his ability to swim is sub-par at best and frankly kind of embarrassing.
- Betrayal - After the whole ordeal with his brother Wes finds it somewhat hard to fully trust others and is a little paranoid when it comes to allowing people to get close to him. He has people to protect, after all.
- His Brother - Rarely does Wes ever hold a deep-seated rage for anyone. But, here it is.
