Description: Aenwyn is of average height and rounded build, as someone who never lacks for nutrition and relies on magic over brawn despite her active lifestyle. Her straight, dark hair is kept at ear-to-shoulder length, with bangs trimmed to give a bit of shape to her otherwise round face. Her complexion is a bit on the rosy side by Faenor standards, but light by any other. Jade green eyes are always alert with a sort of fleeting intensity that would give a bear pause. Her arms, when uncovered, are adorned with scratch and bite marks, most faded with time, but a few more recent. Her bearing is less regal than expected of her kinship, lacking the perfect poise of courtly elves - though she still moves with relative grace in the uneven terrain of the frozen wilds, inspired by wildcats and deer and the occasional hard landing.

Personality: Animal & nature lover. Usually serene, trying to enjoy life as Gala teaches, but gets stubborn in arguments and works herself into a bad mood which can last for days. Her grudges fade with time and distance, though. She is not very savvy about manipulating others but not too gullible herself.

Background: As a child of the Reid family, it was natural that Aenwyn would have an affinity for animals, but more so than others, she found them fascinating and inspiring to the exclusion of other pursuits, amazed that such a complex ecosystem could exist in such an inhospitable environment. For a phase, she viewed her relationships to other elves in terms of how they could facilitate or hinder nature and her understanding of it; her studies of magic were spurred by what such spells could do to help her understand, survive in, and interact with the outside world. She has since grown out of this narrow view, but it still colours her perceptions and her passions reflect it.

Even today, she spends as much time as she can outside, in the wilderness, leaving little impact save for occasionally rescuing little ones from the many perils or joining a group of wolves on the hunt with her companion, Snowdrop. She has not been not totally socially isolated - she has gladly worked in a team for hunting, exploration, rescue, and other expeditions - but her zen is to simply wander, as she has for over a century now.
