Kinlessa Darinel Alcaldia
Only an archer and the Gods may truly know where the arrows may fall.
Description: Like most Aeran kin, her skin is weathered and tanned from her days on the sea, marked with the ritual tattoos which tell her tale. She has the toned shoulders and arms of one who works a bow, with perfect posture drawing her head high. Eyes a stormy grey watch the world out of a rounded face, where an easy smile always can be found.
Personality: Darinel is an archer and that philosophy of keen precision guides her life. An archer must take into consideration every factor before loosing a shot; the arrow, the bow, the target, the weather, the lighting... and yet even with all that there is still the guidance that the Gods themselves give. In the end, it is truly their decision. She believes she is the arrow the Gods have set on a path which she will follow to the end.
Background: Darinel knew her calling would be to lead the Alcaldia family. Her mother was the Wave Whisperer and had her duties. So she was brought up to respect the Gods, Aereth in particular, and to be ready to lead their waterfaring family when that time came. Yet she could not stop herself from her true passion for the bow. She found she had no talent for watershaping but could take down a target from afar with grace and precision. She loved the thrill of the hunt, to sneak up silently on a target and then skewer them before they could launch into the sky or sea.
But such idyllic pastimes came to an end when she was in her mid hundreds and her father died, the duties of house Alcaldia truly falling to her. She would have to be the one to manage their holdings and keep a level head to her mother's tide-in and tide-out ways. This gave her sister freedom but at her own expense. Her time at the coastal shores hunting birds and game was at an end.
The Gods, Aereth in particular, have her on a path she is sure of. Guide and guard their family in this strange new land. And sometimes, just sometimes... steal a little time for herself. Not every arrow flies true all the time.
|Mihris||Darinel has the task of leading our family and I have full confidence that she will manage but I wonder if it has not taken something from her. Together we shall be the balance and each step she takes I will be her shield against the storm and her companion in the exploration and understanding of our new world.|
|Seren||The Kinlessa is a curious sort who seeks out a the mysteries of our new home. I look forward to the day or several we may spend takin into account the small details we may have missed upon our arrival. She seems steadfast with the edge of youth to hone her views. I look forward to her company and coming to know her people better than I have in the past.|
|Sorgath||She wears her love of adventure on her sleeve, and it hangs in her every word. When you talk to her you start to understand why everyone more or less likes the Aeran. She has a enthusiasm that is infectious.|
|Volith||Darinel has been very active as of late, organizing events both within our kinship and without. I am very impressed. It is this sort of passion and also inclusivity that we Aerans need in order to serve as a good example for the rest of our people.|
