Kinlessa Selandriel Marindur
The important question isn't who is going to give me permission; it's who is going to stop me.
Description: Selandriel could be elegant if she cared for it, but instead the young huntress carries herself with a playful gait that is both dismissive and dangerous. Always smiling, her shoulders always threatening a shrug, Selandriel feels equal parts jungle cat and Aeran Kin, her aquamarine eyes gleaming with cunning and her slender build full of lean and powerful musculature. Her hair is vibrant chestnut brown and streaks of crimson red.
Personality: Playful, but strong willed and determined, Selandriel certainly has her wits about her. The duality of her nature is evident in most things she does. Playful smiles match hand in hand with intelligent sharp words. She is not above a bit of mischief, but certainly not willing to let fun get in the way of her duties.
Background: Selandriel was just past the age of adulthood when the Host struck and her Aunt Elexia lead the Third Migration to Aarandor. The time before that ship ride across the ocean seems like a lifetime ago. She and her sibling, Xalor, grew up under the care of their mother, Villance, learning the ways of the sea and all the intricacies that go along with that. Sailors by birth and explorers by nature. Her Aunt Elexia had been named Ithiriel long before Selendriel was born, and the privilege of being the niece of the Ithiriel was not lost on her. Whatever she wanted, she got. But Villance always did her best to keep Selandriel's head on straight and stuck to teaching her the practical things in life.
Everything about her reality changed on the journey over to Aarandor. Both her mother and aunt were lost at sea, leaving her in the care of her Uncle Volith. When they finally made it to the other side, Volith sat her down and gave her a long talk about how she would need to take up the mantle and lead House Marindur. The part about his speech to her that continues to echo in her mind is his insistence on rebuilding and exploring these new lands. After some soul searching, and a few rather angry prayer to Aereth, Selandriel committed to her new fate. She has since been a strong component to the establishment of their new city and voice of reason in Lorawin. She takes her job very seriously, despite her playful nature.
Marriage: Selandriel married Vindal Reymar on 7/12/52 PA. He left the Reymar family and joined Marindur within the Aeran Kinship.
