Description: Keen blue-green eyes look out of an angular face, with sharp cheekbones and a pointed jaw. A bit on the thin side, his skin is tanned with a healthy sunny glow. His hair is long and the color of grain, often kept tied back, though his hairline on his left side is now uneven. Since his near death, Hatharal's beauty has become flawed from grievous scars. The most visible being the marks which spread across the left side of his face, jagged and pink--half burn, half deep scrape from some massive blunt force. The scars continue down under his clothes. Part of his left ear has been torn away, and in certain lights one can see a glint of silver lodged on his cheekbone, where molten silver had caught and melted into bone. There's a vibrant energy to him which manifests unconsciously in a tapping toe or drumming finger.

(Hatharal is never without a band of braided black cloth tied around his wrist--a sign of mourning.)

Personality: Never able to sit still, never able to keep from moving, Hatharal loves to keep shifting from thing to thing, never bogged down or tied to anything for too long. Despite this, everything is met with the same intensity of focus as the thing before it, each the object of his attention and perception to the fullest of his being. He sees this as being part of his devotion to Loran, focusing on the future yet living for the moment so it isn't wasted.

Background: Hatharal was the second son, brother of the Marquis Palinnar before him. As such, the expectations of ruling were never placed on him and instead of learning politics and economics, he was free to ride the plains and climb trees, exploring the lands which his ancestors had already discovered. The fact there was so much of Larandor already mapped and accounted for always left him a little sad, no matter how hard looked for anything anyone might have forgotten or overlooked on old maps. But he focused his energy into what he could, rarely sitting still or letting anything fetter him and his attentions.

When his brother was lost in the migration, he took up the mantle of Marquis, completely unprepared for it. His spirit is a free one, bound to adventure and discovery. Being burdened with these responsibilities, playing the game of politics, it bores him. So, he is hoping to turn his family in a new direction here in this untamed land. He seeks to discover and settle it with them by his side. Here... here there is adventure to be found.

On 10/3/52, Hatharal and Valatir welcomed their first born child. A beautiful girl named Toryn Palinnar.

On 8/16/53 Marquis Valatir Palinnar was murdered by mysterious assailants while on a business trip to the North, by Golden Hollow, leaving Hatharal a widower.

On 3/10/54 Hatharal will welcome his second child into the world, Lorella Palinnar. Though his husband will not be there to see the birth, the child will still be loved and cherished.

Marriage: Hatharal married Valatir Brixtien on 9/16/51 PA. Valatir joined House Palinnar, becoming Marquis Valatir Palinnar.

Relationship Summary

  • Ember - My cousin Ember was the -first- to enter the portals in Lorawin Harbor and set foot in Thelos. The thrill of discovery was all hers! I'm jealous and proud all at once.

  • Ally:
  • Leda - Princess Leda is the perfect example of what every Lorandi should strive to be: Poised and charming, but also very caring. She is someone I look up to quite a bit, and someone I am honored to call my friend.
  • Galeren - The Marquis always knows how to make me laugh, no matter my mood. Despite his laid back nature, I know he cares deeply for his house. I respect him as an ally, fellow Marquis, and priest.

  • Deceased:
  • Valatir - Never have I met, nor will I ever meet again, someone who challenged and complimented me so perfectly. He brought so much joy and passion into my life, and helped me grow from a reluctant leader to the elf I am today. I will always remember his lessons, his heart, and his laughter. I am a broken man without him, but I will continue on in his memory. He would have wanted it that way.

  • Friend:
  • Freyvidr - My lover and dearest friend. I'm not sure I've ever met a man more loyal and protective of those he loves. He may seem cold to others, but I know the warm heart that burns underneath the layer of ice. I am honored to have him often at my side.
  • Seren - A close friend and political ally. Her presence is a source of comfort I can always count on, and her company a blessing I will always cherish. Rylanth and Palinnar will rise together in power and prestige, so long as we continue to work together.

  • Child:
  • Toryn - My first born daughter and heir to my name. Though she is still a toddler, I already see glimpses of the lady she will become... Clever, beautiful, with the brightest smile I've ever seen and a proud spirit. She has so much of Valatir in her, and I suspect will grow up to be much like him.
  • Lorella - My second child, named after the merciful goddess who saved my children from becoming orphans. It breaks my heart to know Valatir will never meet them, but they will be no less loved and cherished.
