Description: There is a certain sort of elegance about her fine featured face; a seamless blend of cynicism and open curiosity lingering in bright blue gaze that manages a teetering balance between a critical examination of the world, and whimsical wonderment. Her hair is long and pale, often kept in elaborate updo's to keep the ivory strands out of the way by virtue of braids and pins, feathery wisps left in loose curl where it breaks free and softens her martial appeal. Though not particularly tall for an elf, her frame is evidence of a life spent in martial training. She has immaculate posture, pride-squared shoulders, and leanly muscled limbs, fitting of her duty as a soldier.

(Audreus' hair is currently left half down, while the other half is pinned up in some rather eleborate braids to keep her hair out of her face.)

Personality: Charismatic and determined, Audreus holds a selfasuredness that has helped her face the horrors of the world time and time again. She is a leader among her people, calm and collected. The soldiers often look to her as a beacon of steady calm in the midst of battle and she does her best to remain so. Perhaps it is her healthy cynicism for the world that keeps her on an even keel, or perhaps it is her natural charisma that keeps her from faltering in public. Whatever it is, Audreus is an asset to her Kinship and a role model for all who look to take up the lifewell or the blade to fight back.

Background: Audreus comes from a great line of politicians. Senators, First Citizens, back and back for generations. It is a prideful point for House Geminiel. Like her cousins, Audreus grew up learning the law and the history of her people, studying and honing her social sense. She was taught just how to speak to deliver her message with impact. And when the time came for her to choose her own path in life, much to her family's surprise, she decided to take her teachings and focus them on military efforts.

A fierce warrior from the get go, Audreus wasted no time in learning how to balance both blade and Lifewell at the same time. Her added charismatic approach to communication and tightly honed communication skills certainly helped her to rise to the top of the Amethyst Order, the elite group of Spellblades among the Duindar Army. It was during this time she met her husband, a fellow soldier named Larys. The two were soon married and Brundir blessed them with a daughter they named Valinda whose eyes were the same deep blue as Audreus.

They were happy for a time, teaching their daughter everything she would need to know to grow up a strong and capable warrior. Shortly after Valinda came of age and took to the Amethyst Order to join her parents, The Host arrived. The Eradication War claimed many lives, some far too soon. When Valinda and Larys both perished in the battle, Audreus was stricken with grief. She vowed then to aid Estril in protecting all Elf Kind from the darkness that would corrupt and poison the souls of those who spin along the wheel. Now, here in Aarandor, Audreus has doubled her efforts in making sure that the Duindar are kept safe and that Estril is well appeased and given her due thanks for keeping evil at bay.

Relationship Summary


Family:
  • Limandria - My first cousin once removed, my cousin's daughter, Limandria does the Gemeniel name proud. She's been elected to the Senate and has strong goals for the elven people. She lacks any military acumen though, for which I would be glad to advise her.
  • Nyrena - I think Nyrena feels I need her pity, of course, I don't. But her interest in learning from the past, and applying those lessons to the future will serve her well. And while she's not a warrior, it never hurts to learn a little about war.

  • Acquaintance:
  • Rollant - Duke Rollant Tenlindil served as the commander of the Lorandi forces during the war against the Host. He was a good tactician, caring for his men and ensuring he could save as many as he could in the face of defeat. We discussed tactics on more than one occasion amongst the unified races and I found him to have sound judgement and strategies. Despite his more... vicious past, I found him to be level headed and pleasant company, situation withstanding.
  • Helene - This young lady has become the General of the Lorandi military forces. Impressive for one so young. She's wise enough to seek guidance from the other Kinships which includes myself. She has no talent for magic so I don't know how useful our tactics would be for her.

  • Deceased:
  • Larys - I didn't think I could ever fall in love. I didn't think I would ever marry. Funny how things change. He was a good match, both emotionally and in the combat ring. The Host will pay for taking him from me. I shall never see his like again.
  • Valinda - My daughter followed her father and I into the Order. We felt such pride and accomplishment in raising her to be a warrior as much as she was a mage. She was lost to me as her father was. I will fight with every ounce of my being to keep such pain from any other parent.

  • Frenemy:
  • Nagestos - He can be a little irritating with that Acadeum superiority he likes to throw around, but, he is certainly skilled. He's a fun one to debate, and would be more useful if he was more willing to put this skills to work where it matters, in the field of battle.

  • Ally:
  • Teroleus - A fellow Spellblade and member of the Amethyst Order in addition to serving the Senate. He lost family to the Host as well. He and I see eye to eye about the need for our people to be ready for them. We also understand we must be training this new generation to be ready for threats from wherever they may come.
