“Who do you think I am!? I am Alwen Blaedfast! Knight of Elam Tyrell!!”

“A Paladin will never merely go through the motions that reflect his values; he embodies them! He can’t let stand a single day without Their [the twin goddess’s] all-consuming passion inside of him!”

“Drop. Your. Sword.”

Son of the captain of the south city guard, of Calendor (a city attacked countless times for its fabled enchanted throne). Alwen was all but born with the sword placed in his hand.
It was law in Calendor that all citizens housed within her walls be versed in the use of the sword. At dawn every morning Alwen practiced with the rest of the town in the stances, and spent every saturday training hard at the arena.

When Alwen met Nina, he was instantly spellbound. With her exotic background and heritage, Alwen could never fathom why Nina was ever bored or lonely. Nina wasn’t sure what to make of Alwen, but she liked him, for he was cheerful and kind, as well as chivalrous to almost a comedic degree, and before long the two became friends and traveling companions. As time passed however, Alwen’s admiration morphed into a deep and sincere love for the half-elf.

Alwen’s primary training is in the longsword and shield, the latter of which was made for him as a coat of arms as a youth. Then, as was tradition in Calendor, when the boy came of age, the shield was fitted to the center of a larger frame, as a sign of how he’d grown as a person and a swordsman. He has what Nina describes as “either an underdeveloped sense of caution, or an overdeveloped sense of Valor,” and while he’s excellent for someone in a tight pinch, he has a hard time walking away from (much less running away from) a fight if he believes his cause is just. As such, he is prone to engaging things way out of his league, and Nina has had to drag him away from a fight on more than one occasion.
