Conrad is a child who seems almost emotionless at first. He has a cold gaze that seems so distant and detached, and he doesn't seem to care much for the usual childhood things. Fairytales hold no magic for him, because he knows that dreams don't come true, and not everyone gets a happy ending. The youth never really occupied himself with daydreaming of the day he would have a family, or a princess and live happily everafter. Maybe because he realized early on that these were just stories and that sort of thing never happened to real people. He lost faith in fantasy when he came to accept that he had no family.
He is an unusually thoughful and intellegent for a child of his age, thinking each move out. Though this likely comes from his military up-bringing. He is a skilled fighter already, as well as a masterful tactician. This being mostly what he has been trained in as long as he can remember. He enjoys solitude, and doesn't like to speak much. Though it is rumored that it is possible to work him up enough to get him to spout a rant in your direction.
In a way he is very unlike the typical spoiled child. He can have anything he wants, but does not ask for much, since he knows the only thing he really wants is something he can't have. There is an air of what might be depression that follows him, a child who believes he has no family that could love him.
If faced with the chance to have someone who cares for him, he would likely seize it and latch right on to that person. Deep down he hides a part of himself which is just like a normal child. The part of him that wants to run and laugh and play games without a care in the world. This is the part he keeps secret to himself, because he has no one to share it with.
Around girls, especially pretty ones, he is incredibly awkward. He often ends up scaring them by accident, or unable to speak with them because he's so shy. Which is a very real thing. Conrad is quite shy around new people, and while he thinks he's brave, that is only on the battlefield. Social situations terrify him, and he doesn't like big cities because there's so many people, and those people are really quite scary to him.

There was a storm coming. The clouds told him that plain as day. In preparation for the coming nightmare Conrad had barricaded himself in his room, and buried himself under a pile of blankets. Klaus stood watch, a brave sentinel outside the safety of the blanket mound. The dog was the only one in the child’s world brave enough to face the storm and protect him from it.
Quietly the blonde boy curled tighter around the stuffed bear he had dragged under the blankets with him. The thing had been his constant companion for some time, a gift from the man who paid to take care of him. One of many gifts from the man which meant almost nothing to him. The man was nothing to him, because he was absent from his life. He was apparently absent from most lives though. Even that of his own children.
Not that they needed a father anymore, they were fully grown. Big strong men who would make their father and the military proud. And he…he was nothing to the man, to the military, to anyone except a stuffed bear and Klaus who loved him unconditionally. A soft bark from the dog announced the storm’s quick approach, and he curled tighter into the blankets.
The first rumble of thunder found the child with a vice-grip on his bear, whimpering loud enough to provoke a whimper from the dog. Moments later the sky split open and he yelped, borrowing deeper still into the pile. The sound of rain against the glass doors leading out to the balcony did nothing to calm him down, when any other night it would have. The thunder and lightning rendered it powerless.
Another loud clap of thunder rolled through the night, lightning making the dark bright as day for a moment. He wanted the storm to pass, he wanted it to be over. He wanted to go to sleep, but the storm wouldn’t let him. It was intent on going long into the night. The loudest rumble of the night sounded out, shaking the stones of the castle. This was going to be a long night…
