Marquis Galeren Nalduine
The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting against the old, but on building up the new.
Description: Rather tall and stately looking, Galeren is a vision of Lorandi nobility. His long blonde hair is often braided perfectly into place. His pale green eyes hold a gaze with intensity and power. What sets him apart from the expected noble decorum is his ability to shrug and keep going. Galeren is prone to smiles and warm laughter, holding himself in a very open and welcoming manner.
Personality: Laughter comes easily to Galeren. He's found himself in an unusual predicament but he intends to make the best of it. Curious and inviting, he is quick to engage in conversations that might spark an idea or innovation. His easy-going demeanor gives him all the opportunity he needs to meet new people and spark up alliances and friendships among those who are receptive.
Background: Galeren has lived through a very strange time in elven history. First the mortal strife, then the Eradication War. And of course the Third Migration most of all. Through all of it, Galeren has chosen to be more of an observer than a participant. He chose to flow the priesthood of Torth at a fairly young age. There he learned about architecture and how to create beautiful, fortified structures. It fascinated him.
As the war waged on and soon after the decision to sail to Aarandor came, Galeren dutifully boarded the ship thinking nothing of his future or life in this new land. His father helped to build Toreendar, set the Lorandi up for success. But after losing Galeren's mother in the migration, his father couldn't take the sorrow anymore. He sat Galeren down and handed over the duties of Marquis of House Nalduine to him. Galeren was shocked on both counts. Of his father's choice to seek out the priests of Glanor and of his decision to hand the family to him. But in that moment of sorrow, Galeren assured his father he would do everything in his power to see House Nalduine grow strong.
While Galeren still takes his duties to Torth very seriously, his focus has fallen on to House Nalduine almost completely. His visions for architecture still dance in his mind when he has a moment to sit and imagine. Perhaps some day, with his new found title, he will build the city he has been dreaming of.
