The Land's End

"Crim has a lot of problems." - Quinlan[1]

Crim is a Tamian[2] and an instructor in the martial art of Tesque.[3]

Personality

Crim learned at a young age that force usually got him what he wanted, and has a natural love of combat that he channels into his Tesque skills.[4] Crim is domineering and abrasive,[5] especially when he's drunk.[6] Crim has a high opinion of himself.[7] Crim’s commanding personality makes him a natural at pushing his students to their full potential.[8]

He desires adventure and intrigue, which is why he wants the rank of Captain.[9] He wants to serve King Dabheid with honor and be remembered as a hero,[10] and he has devoted all his efforts to achieving the rank of Captain.[11]

Crim has a quick temper[12] especially if things don't go his way or he's publicly humiliated.[13]

According to Alder, Crim has a penchant for complaining and is a sore loser, which is why no one wants to be around him.[14]

He feels that the Tamian are superior to other races. [15]

Relationships

Quinlan

Crim and Quinlan are rivals,[16] mainly driven by the fact that Crim really wants the rank of Captain, and believes that Quinlan is unworthy of the position,[17] Crim wanted to beat Quinlan at Tesque to inflate his own reputation.[18]

Crim and Quinlan grew up together[19] and used to be in the scouts together, which influenced a lot of Crim's opinions on Quinlan.[20] Crim thinks Quinlan is a coward that doesn't care about his duties, calling him an "empty shirt". He says Quinlan is a fool for rejecting the chance to train under Caldus.[21]

Alder

Alder gives Crim advice when he comes to the Land's End Tavern, even though Crim tends to forget his advice because of his drunkenness. Crim respects Alder enough not to argue with him, knowing he would lose, and to consider Alder's words about his attitude.[22]

Caldus

Crim looks up to Caldus as a hero,[23] and deeply admires him.[24]

King Dabheid

Crim respects his king, and desires to serve under him for honor and intrigue.[25]

Janik

Janik states that Crim has "never liked" Quinlan, and that he was next in line to be captain when Quinlan was promoted,[26] demonstrating some familiarity with him.

Dakkan

Despite his frequent visits to Terria, Dakkan had never met Crim before the demonstration.[27] While they never directly interact, Crim motions to Dakkan when he tells his class that "they" will never be able to match the Tamian when it comes to leaping- inferring that the other races, and thus Lutren, are inferior.[28]. Dakkan is also enraged at Crim's dishonorable conduct towards Quinlan during the match,[29] and expresses dislike for him at the Land's End after the demonstration.[30]

Skills

He holds the rank of Master in Tesque[31][32], and is skilled enough in Tesque to serve as an instructor.[33]

Crim has very little ability to hold his liquor.[34]

History

Pre-series

He has an unspecified backstory with Quinlan.[35] They served together in the Scouts at some point.[36]

After the previous Captain passed, Crim was next in line to receive the position, but the promotion went to Quinlan instead, worsening the animosity Crim had for Quinlan.[37]

Beyond the Western Deep: Chapter One

Crim asks Quinlan to demonstrate the tenets of Tesque to his students.[38] Initially, Quinlan refuses, citing his busy schedule, but Crim notes that the previous captain would have agreed to the demonstration[39] and Quinlan accepts.[40] Due to the fact that Quin hasn't used Tesque in a while,[41] Quin initially takes a beating during the "demonstration". [42] However, after being knocked around a bit,[43] Quinlan regains his touch and embarrasses Crim in front of his students.[44] Enraged, Crim drops the pretense of a demonstration and attacks Quinlan.[45] However, his rage leads to sloppy form and Quinlan easily knocks him out.[46]

After losing, Crim wandered into the Deep, cursing the trees for allowing him to fall in battle to someone as unworthy as Quinlan.[47]

The Land's End

After his disgraceful spar with Quinlan, Crim was promoted to Scout Captain. He has been hearing ringing in his ears and rubbing the side of his head several days after the match.[48]

A week after Quinlan leaves for Deltrada Garrison, Crim goes to the Land's End Tavern and seeks Alder out to vent to him. Crim insults Quinlan, but Alder defends him, telling Crim that Quinlan is skilled and understands the nature of sacrifice. Alder explains the dynamics of Quinlan and Caldus' relationship. Alder also bluntly points out Crim's own faults, which Crim considers as he leaves.[49]

Description

Crim is a red Tamian that wears a white Tesque robe with green trim. He has a red belt tied around his waist and green wrappings around his wrists and ankles. He has a big nose with a dark splotch on it and wears two pairs of silver earrings.
