Description: Arminel has a sort of every-man quality to his features, with a tall build and closely shorn russet hair. While handsome, his expression has the tendency to relax into a sober, pensive sort of glower, often creating the impression that he's considering work yet undone, or an unsolved problem. Bright, eager eyes of azure lend intensity to his scowls, and joy to his smiles.

Personality: Rather self assured, though not arrogant. Arminel knows when to press his rule and when to ease back and listen, a delicate balance that he has had to master quickly. He is naturally rather calm and collected, prefering to observe and think than to speak too quickly. But he is unafraid of using his tone and scowl to get done what must be done.

Background: Arminel was born to rule. Eldest of his siblings and well tempered as a child, Arminiel's place on the throne was his destiny from the very beginning. And with that, so too were his studies and the doting love of his parents. Everything fell into place exactly as it should for him. He found a certain sort of joy in accompanying his father or mother to political meetings and watching the way they spoke and behaved. They were both rather well liked as Monarchs and he intended to follow in their footsteps.

He was not but one hundred years old when the Eradication War struck. His father, King Rhistel, went against the wishes of his general and decided to join the army and see this horrible enemy first hand. That mistake would cause him his life. The chaos of combat left Arminel with only a letter from the front lines telling him that his father had been lost in the battle. With a heavy heart, he took up the crown and helped to keep the Lorandi unified and bonded in this time of horrible war. Luckily, his mother, the Queen, was there to help him. Together they met with and decided to join Ithiriel Elexia on the journey to Aarandor. His mother, in particular, worked very hard to get the Duchies and Marches to follow them. The resistance against the Third Migration was strong from the Lorandi as a whole. But battle after battle, their warriors fell until a tipping point was reached and the decision made.

Tragically, the Queen was lost at sea on the journey to Aarandor. Arminel has begun to lean on his sister, Leda, to help him in this new land. They established the city of Torendaar together, and brought unity back to the houses of Lorandi. He is optimistic that this new opportunity will serve as a fresh new beginning for the elves as whole, and hopes to be at the forefront of building this new society from the ground up.
