Description: A soldier's crisp posture and close-cropped hair give a wealth of knowledge away in a single glance. His skin has a rugged almost leathery tan from years of being in the sun, and his face has a squared look. A sharp nose rests in the center of his face, with a pronounced bridged to it, aquiline in appearance. Only a single white scar on his cheek to mar it; an oddity when there is Restorative magic. His physique is honed from years of combat training.

Personality: Teroleus has lost a lot. Siblings. Friends. Allies. Wife. All he has left is his duty to serve the Duindar and he takes that seriously. He has a lot of regret haunting him over all he's lost in life but he doesn't let that cloud his judgement. He is stern, practical, and to the point. He's had loss but he doesn't let it drag him down; it drives him instead.

Background: The Eradication War and the Third Migration took a lot from Teroleus. A Spellblade in both blade and Evocation magic (specializing in wind and electricity), he lost his siblings and many of his friends and allies in the war. It was then he received a scar which he kept as a reminder of his failure to protect them. He regretted leaving behind the humans he was so close to when the Third Migration took the elves away, his voting Against the departure. He knew they would die without the elven armies to assist. This put him at odds with his head of house Elstrin, his cousin.

He and his wife Alesetta survived the perilous journey across the seas only to lose her when their first settlement was wiped out in the First Flood some fifteen years after they settled the riverbanks. Since then, he has felt the need to expand beyond the banks of the volatile river and get away from the treetops, even if the Isalspire itself seems secured and immutable. He believes military expansion is essential to their security.

He harbors a resentment towards himself for not being able to help more and protect those he loves. Every time he looks in the mirror he sees the scar which reminds him of it. All he has left is duty to serve in the senate and look out for the protection and well-being of the Duindar. He feels he is done with active military life but serves as a tactician and occasional teacher to the younger generations.

Relationship Summary

  • Marlinnia - Marlinnia and I were both trained as Spellblades of the Amethyst Order. She had more the mind for combat and I for tactics. Our father Jonah couldn't decide which of us received Avornin and Ninavor, the twin blades of our ancestors - so he gave each of us one. She died facing the Host, Ninavor in hand.

  • Acquaintance:
  • Theleria - The First Speaker for many years now, her outlook on things is often too optimistic. She cast the final vote to run and leave our allies behind. I do not know if she holds regrets over that the way I do.
  • Saqurius - They have their nose in dusty scrolls too often and rely on the past to dictate the present. There's something to be said for precedent but we should take care not to make the same mistakes our ancestors did.
  • Elizaldian - This young elf has much the same regrets I do, although he never fully witnessed the horrors of the Host. If he did, he may change his mind about being ready for them.
  • Limandria - Girl has drive, I'll give her that. If her passions can be put to the good of our people perhaps they can benefit more than just herself.

  • Deceased:
  • Alsetta - I married a lovely Lorandi Monstald by the name of Alsetta. We were both in our hundreds and quite in love. She was lost to me during the First Flood in 16 PA.

  • Family:
  • Elstrin - Niece, my sister's daughter. She is a magical engineer like the Duindar of old. Practical. She doesn't care about anyone or anything except herself and her goals. Too willing to sacrifice others for her ends.
  • Nagestos - He might not think much of me because of my choices, but I was out there, fighting. He was not. I love magic as much as the next Naevon, but there are times we need to look at the bigger picture and joining the Order allowed me to help defend my people, our people. He is family, I care for him as such, but he is a bit of a jerk.
