Brother Aganor Filinnar
Tradition and history should be guardian of what we once were, not the shackles to determine what we shall become.
Description: An elf of average height and build, with dusky brownish grey skin. Hair of a stark white is kept short but not militarily so, with a ruffled look that shifts in any errant breeze. The white hair sits over eyes of a steely grey with flecks of blue in them, a gaze that seems to look right through people with a shrewd intelligence. The hints of age have barely begun to touch upon the elf, though there is a wisdom in his eyes that suggests years beyond his youthful looks.
Personality: Pleasant, but always careful, Aganor is not one to easily trust others. One reason he is often successful as a negotiator is that he's expecting potential disaster to spring without warning and often. He worries, but he rarely shows it, letting a smile at the right moment, or silence when is required he listens serve as a setup for diffusing whatever difficult situation has been brought up to his attention. Once he's made a decision, he is very certain of it and only the most convincing arguments will manage to change his mind.
Background: Elerina Sedriel, the middle child of Flame Speaker Selin Sedriel was considering giving up on having children when Brundir finally blessed her with the charge of a soul. The birth of Aganor Sedriel was a difficult one, and left Elerina weakened, but alive thanks to the gift of immortality that all Ithir races enjoyed. Aganor grew up knowing the love of his mother and father both during his youth. His father was born Thalos Ingith, and was joined with Elerina in a love marriage. Somehow Elerina's brother, Jarlanen convinced House Ingith to let Thalos take on the Sedriel name and join the Thalerith, which he did proudly. He was a hunter, and while not born Thalerith, insisted that it was important for him to do his part for the kinship, to honor the family of his spouse. He was strong of body, so the Thalerith accepted him as one of their hunters, after he proved himself. Aganor took after Elerina, and didn't inherit the vitality or strength of his father, so he often spent his time studying with his uncle, Jarlanen. It was during a hunt that Aganor's father saw his end at the jaws of the large krilkar.
The loss of Thalos took a heavy toll on Elerina and a a few years after Aganor reached adulthood, she decided to undergo the Ritual of Returning and ask Glanor to guide her back to the Wheel. The loss was painful for Aganor, but not unexpected, and without both his parents he found himself drawn closer to his uncle, who had also become his mentor. It was his uncle's wish that Aganor would become a Flame Seer and help protect the oral tradition of the Thalerith, however Aganor decided to join the priesthood of Acharon instead, drawn to its teachings about potential and what can be achieved through change.
Most people found his marriage to Sylindra Filinnar to be a little unexpected. She had many suitors at the time, and he had never shown overt interest in her. Still, he was her choice, and she was his choice and he made no attempt to try and challenge her for dominance. Their marriage is a successful one, and once she became the Warlord, he made sure to negotiate and placate where needed to help stabilize the transition to her rule. Their marriage was blessed with two children, twins, with his daughter Lyandra taking more after him, and his son Joran after his mother. His continuous devotion to Acharon unchanged, he works as a diplomat for his wife whenever he's not serving his god.
