Captain Elleth Alcaldia
Being underestimated is one of the biggest competative advantages you can have. Embrace it.
Description: Elleth is average sized with average looks, no one thing about her stands out among a crowd. Not physically anyways. It is the way she carries herself that sets her apart. Bright blue eyes looking out with a sort of mischievous glint to them. Her lips are almost always curled into a slight smirk suggesting she might know something more than you do. The confidence that exudes from her every word is her establishing feature. She is near unshakable and her posture and expression lean in to that confidence.
Personality: Though she can come off as quiet at times, a dutiful at others, there is always something more to Elleth than what meets the eye. Her headstrong nature always pushed her to find a way, any way, to get the job done. She is cool calm and collected, organized and ready to face whatever comes her way. Though there is a touch of cynicism to her, she never lets it slow down the achievement of her goals.
Background: Elleth grew up on the sea. Her mother, Velandria the Aeran Wave Speaker, would bring her out to sermons when she was very little. Though Elleth would listen on occasion, she prefered taking those moments to watch the boats out in the harbor at Loramar. She often dreamed of what it would be like to take one of those boats and sail away. Far far into the distance. She had hears stories of a mythical land called Aarandor that was said to exist to the west with all manner of incredible creatures to discover. Little did she know, about a hundred years later she would be helping to lead the frantic excursion westward with all the elvan kind they could pack on to the boats.
Elleth was responsible for managing the undertaking, sailing to Aarandor. She oversaw the ship building projects, she made sure there was money being used equally across all kinships and she even came up with the idea to comingle kinship members on each of the ships, just in case they had hit rough water. Every moment of forethought put in to the journey by Elleth ended up saving lives and family lines in the end.
Now that they are here in Aarandor, and she is permanently fixed as Talien's second in command, she intends to make the most of her position. The financial and explorative ventures often come through her. And when the time comes for fighting, she is right there to step up and take command.
