Description: Cerulean blue eyes sit beneath a sharp brow with eyebrows to match, kohl eyeliner and a touch of something on the eyelashes for a smokey look. His skin itself is obviously tended to, but nothing can truly escape exposure to the elements and the ravaging weather that is the stormy sea, giving his exposed skin a slightly rough texture. His mouth was born to smile and spite in a moment, full and delighted to express itself no matter the intent, with a sharp jawline and slightly broad chin preventing his features from being too angular and sharp. His waist-length black hair is allowed to flow freely, unbound by any constraint, whipped into some stormy mess by the rough weather.

Personality: A coy smirk nearly always betrays Vindal's mischievous nature. He is as fickle as the waves, deep in quiet contemplation one moment, out raiding with his brother the next. His highs and lows come in peaks and valleys, but the one thing that you can count on is that when Vindal's mood goes down, it is steady and sure to come right back up soon after.

Background: Vindal was born on a ship just out in the harbor past Loramar, the Dream of the Seas. The sky was clear and the stars were shining on the crystal blue water the day Vindal came in to the world. His mother likes to joke that being born so close to Brundir and Aereth, vindal inherited the Sea Goddess' fickle nature and the God of the Stars and Sun's affinity for trickery. His early studies led him in many directions. Swordplay, philosophy, religion. Eventually he found the priesthood of Aereth and settled in to focusing on her teachings? most of the time.

Though Vindal and his brother could not be more opposite, the two get along quite well. Talien was always happy to have Vindal on board a raiding ship to act as their priest in times of crisis. And Vindal was happy to give Talien a quick jab with an elbow when he is being overly serious. It was this way between them right until the Host invaded Larandor. Vindal knew, very strongly, that the elven kinships needed to leave. He spent a good amount of his time convincing others to join them on their journey to Aarandor.

When they finally landed in Aarandor, and after all the death and destruction brought to their people, Vindal decided to take his connection to the Gods much more seriously. Waves Speaker Velandria Alcaldia selected him to be her successor. He was called to be the Wave Whisperer and right hand in all things related to the spiritual health of the Aeran Kinship. Though he still takes his time to enjoy life to the fullest, he knows he is most effective when his thoughts are aligned with his Goddess.

Marriage: Selandriel married Vindal Reymar on 7/12/52 PA. He left the Reymar family and joined Marindur within the Aeran Kinship.

Relationship Summary


Sibling:
  • Talien - Your scowl is going to get you killed one of these days. I'll always watch out for you and I know you'll always do the same for me. It's what brothers do.

  • Spouse:
  • Selandriel - My love, my light, my home. I've never been so sure about something as I am about her. She's fierce, she's adventurous, and she's as devoted to Aereth as I am. I look forward to our life together.

  • Ally:
  • Velandria - The one training me in the ways of Aereth, kind, wise, but stubborn as the day is long, and even half of the night. I fear for what may happen to her, given this is such troubling times, but she has been good to me. I will stand besides her, for better or worse.

  • Parent:
  • Odissin - Who knew all I needed to do to earn his respect was leave? I have his support, and he gives me his counsel (whether I want it or not). I still have much to learn from him.
