Velindor Calendula


Race: Symenestra
Gender: Male
Age: 23
Birthday: 7th, Winter, 493 AV
Birthplace: Kalinor

Appearance: Velindor stands at roughly six feet in height, with ash-pale skin revealing hints of an intricate and delicate network of ebony veins just beneath the surface. His wavy hair is dark silver and stops just above his thin shoulders.

Character Concept

A firstborn Symenestra on his first true Harvest after two successful Gleanings, he has some ability with Hypnotic magic, but relies primarily on his knowledge of plants and herbs as a means of making coin, while dabbling in poison for defense and intellectual curiosity. He has a private fascination with death and the process of dying, which further motivates his study of poisons. In social interactions, he’s unfailingly polite and generally cordial. Privately, Vel keeps an iron focus on his goal and the importance of a successful Harvest, and has no qualms about using whatever means necessary to succeed. However, he is very patient, willing to play the long, strategic game rather than rush in for the easy, brute-force victory. Velindor is not particularly religious, though he does value family and places a high value on loyalty. He views most non-symenestra as lesser beings, though he keeps this opinion to himself.
