Description: Deeply tanned, this athletic man is average in his height. Shoulder length brownish-blond hair is gathered back in a half ponytail behind his head to reveal a clear brow and angular features. That visage is centered around eyes like ocean skies and a proud nose, thin lips and a squared, thrusting chin. Weathered laugh lines nest eyes and mouth, visible clues to the good-natured humor that dominates his personality. Angular cheeks lead to a stubbled jawline, and then a sinewy neck that widens into sturdy shoulders supporting competent arms and clever hands. His build is firm and sturdy, with a broad chest and shoulders, and he bears the trim, balanced figure of the naturally active.
Personality: Intelligence and curiousity are often the things most people notice first about him. A more perceptive observer might note his common sense and consistently calm demeanor. He seems to act more from duty and considered thought than from emotion, although he is typically quick to laugh and to care. There is footloose streak to him as well, a restless need to search and learn.
Background: Growing up a noble son in Escuma, Aelgar was lucky to have House tutors and a physically active rural lifestyle in a relatively invasion-free location. He survived childhood uninjured and healthy in the unremarkably active way of country children. Of note, though, is that his curiosity was often commented by adults and his interest in learning occasionally drew ridicule from his peers. He eventually came to the attention of the Disciples of Vellichor, or, perhaps they came to his attention, so precocious was he. As the years passed, he became a student and then an acolyte and, finally, a priest. Along the way, his curiousity and cultural tradition also pushed him to explore the island, wrestle with his peers, learn horses and dogs, and otherwise soak up the normal learning for a boy of his station. As a priest, he carried on the tradition and taught children himself, and then adults, mostly about thinking clearly and critically on topics like medicine and ruling. Over time, the scholarly thinker received some acceptance as a man with a good head on his shoulders and even became respected by some for his contributions. Eventually, though, he became restless with the offerings of his island home. He decided to travel to Arx with a letter of introduction to the church and another for distant relatives living there.
|Aella||A quiet and kind man of the Faith. Someone called him a prelate? I don't know what one is, but I'm sure he's good at it.|
|Bran||An observer with a level of intentionality seldom seen. Not to be underestimated.|
|Domonico||A boarding axe and the Navegant name. I would wager this man has had experience out on the seas.|
|Esme||He seems so very very serious. Which only makes me more curious. However, opposites attract in friendship. I am sure that we are going to be the best friends that have ever best friended. /He/ may not know that, want that, or be aware of it, but surely it is going to happen.|
|Everett||A seemin'ly absent-minded bookish sort with an affable nature. First done seen him at the seminar on Healing Herbs. Seemed a decent sort. Well read, which is the type o' knowledge that me own self be lacking. Respectable. Seems a good feller. Friendly like. Mentioned field work, which seemingly be contradict'n his nature. Will done have to find out what he's about!|
|Gael||An adherent of the faith whose virtuous imperative hinges on the matter of truth. Unaware, perhaps, that intrinsic in all things is ever a darker road that winds away with a troubling, serpent-like treacherous suggestion goading all to walk its path and find the sickness within. Good luck.|
|Isolde||Quiet, but his fondness for animals speaks of an undeniably gentle nature.|
|Orland||The man is a Scholar, dedicated to his books even in privacy.|
|Pasquale||A little difficult to engage in conversation but well worth it. A very intelligent and insightful man.|
|Vitalis||Incredibly deft hands, though I'd rather they be binding books than wounds. Something about him reminds me of Giulio...|
|Zakhar||Well attended and always vigilant for the seeker of knowledge. Virtuous, though not in a means some scholars and teachers can get when they know of the dangerous information which should be kept from the general public. Will need to find time to really sit down with them, if its allowed.|
