              THE POWERS
                    ▌Weapon Name ▬▬ Flowing Ice ; Fury
                    ▌Fighting Style ▬▬ Arddy avoids fighting whenever he can, especially by using fury to kill from afar. But, when he does have to face close combat, he prefers a attack and run style. He makes small injuries and then skips away from his opponent. This technique slowly weakens his enemies.

                    ▌Absorb ▬▬ Allows Arddy to instantly absorb the content of books. Doing this clears his memory of one previous book he memorized.
                    ▌Force Shield ▬▬ Creates a barrier that Arddy controls. Doing this paralyzes a part of his body - the larger the shield, the more of his body that becomes paralyzed.
                    ▌Chill ▬▬ Creates a slow moving chill that sinks deep into anyone that comes near Arddy. Drains Arddy.
                    ▌Foresight ▬▬ Arddy is able to see into the future. He becomes unaware of what is going on around him and the farther into the future he looks the less likely he is to come back.
                    ▌Long View ▬▬ Arddy is able to see up to ten miles in every direction. This takes serious concentration.

                    ▌Clairvoyance ▬▬ Arddy has a sixth sense for when he is being talked about and has a knack for guessing the future.
                    ▌Eidetic Memory ▬▬ Arddy can remember everything he has ever seen.
                    ▌Stealth ▬▬ Arddy, by nature, is very quiet and reserved. This, combined with his size, makes him pretty good at sneaking.
                    ▌Accuracy ▬▬ While Arddy prefers his crossbow, he is pretty proficient with a bow and arrow as well.
                    ▌Ingenuity ▬▬ What Arddy lacks in charisma, he more than makes up for in ingenuity. He can think of ten ways out of any scenario.

              THE PERSONAL
                    ▌Quiet ▬▬ Arddy isn't known for speaking his mind often. Mostly, he just completes the tasks assigned to him and moves on. Not many questions asked, at lest not out loud.
                    ▌Curious ▬▬ He always wants to know the details. Why, who, what, when, and how are his favorite words and, while he won't openly question anyone, you can bet he's doing research into anything that interests him.
                    ▌Loyal ▬▬ This might stem from his up bringing, but Arddy is loyal to a fault - especially to his family. He'd rather die than betray or dishonor his family.
                    ▌Daring ▬▬ Many confuse Arddy's shyness with fear. In fact, he is very rarely afraid. He is often the person who supports the most daring or risky strategy, because he knows the rewards are often equal to the risks involved.


                    ▌History ▬▬ Arden is the youngest son of the King and Queen of Lalarrow. He has three brothers and a sister, all of whom have gone on to control a portion of the infamous Grey Brigade - the deadliest and best equipped units in all the kingdoms. Arden, however, was not the kind of person who became the leader of a group of trained killers and his parents saw that in him from a young age. So, they trained him in other ways early on. Teaching him about the history of the kingdom and the relationships that controlled all the goings on therein. With his amazing ability to remember anything he saw, he quickly became one of the most learned people in the court, who hungered for more knowledge. So, his parents made him the Tactician for the entire Grey Brigade, effectively the leader of the most destructive force in all of the five human kingdoms. This irked many, since the boy was only 20, but they quickly saw the wisdom as Arden crushed all those who stood before his family.

                    Recently, he has become fearful of his path. He has noticed that his father has become more and more haphazard in his orders and very rarely listens to Arden's advice. This hasn't led the kingdom to any trouble yet, but it is only through the planning and preparation that Arddy has to put out. His brother and sister talk about the problem almost constantly, and he can see the lust for power in the eyes of his oldest brother, Ezekiel. While he agrees that his father cannot be allowed to ruin the kingdom, treason is not an option for him. The forced marriage to a spawn of the Demon King is ill timed and unwanted for Arden, who only wants to protect his family from ruin.

              THE RELATIONSHIPS
                    ▌Demon King ▬▬ Arden has only met the King once, as a child, when his parents paid for his entry to the King's library. He recalls the sheer terror the presence set in on him, but little else. Arddy does not hold the same respect that many in his land have for the Demon King.
                    ▌King Nyllieus Strewbod ▬▬ Arden reveres his father. Ever since he was little, he has wanted nothing more than to earn the praise of his father, and he has been very successful in this endeavor. While his siblings have shown an exceptional ability to fight and lead, Arden is the only one to show any ability to plan. The King is very proud that his son is one of the smartest beings in the kingdom.
                    ▌High Prince Ezekiel von Strewbod ▬▬ Arden's older brother has no love for him. They are not enemies by any means, but they are certainly not the loving brothers they are supposed to be. At best, they are amicable. This relationship was made worse when Ezekiel refused to take Arden's council early in his carrier as Tactician and, as a result, lost half a host of the Brigade. That was when the King made Arddy the official Tactician and, essentially, Ezekiel's boss. With the King's health in doubt, Ezekiel has made his doubt in his little brother more and more clear as time has gone on.

So begins...
