Aren Tensard is cursed with the malady of ever-changing shape, and is considered a strange man. Toting knightly chivalry and valor, despite what forms he takes, Aren strives to bring peace to Eorzea. Born in lands of conflict and war, Aren has never been ignorant of battle and how easily life is lost which this fuels his heroism. Rebellious and cold toward stifling traditions, Aren is a man of the world that lacks sympathy for the purposely close-minded. However, he is not an anarchist despite being considered a hellion and overall oddball by those that know him through hearsay. A veteran Adventurer, Aren Tensard commits his energies and blade to the defense and preservation of Eorzea despite his issues with its politics.
Aren was blessed with the Echo, and tends to keep such information about his "gift" to himself and only trusted relations.Disclaimer: I treat the Echo as a tool to aid in story-telling, not some means to meta-game Wiki-knowledge. I will never use it to make Aren remark about things he should not know about other characters before they ever have met. With that, this is not an invitation to use Aren's Echo as your personal tool to engage or force his sympathies. RP is mutual writing, so work with me if you want to involve this trait of his.
Aren's appearance is ephemeral, often leading the people at large and the adventurer's guild to investigate and question individuals seemingly using the name as an alias. But some traits between his appearances remain, namely his ice-blue eyes and azure colored hair. His height tends for the taller average, and his constant training leaves him fit and muscled.
Aspects That Stand Out:
Aren generally carries himself in public with a reserved, if not stoic, demeanor. He acts polite, courteous, and apologetic as befitting of a Ishgardian Knight. He does not get violent when angered, tending instead to defuse or resolve such conflicts with words or disengaging. With close-relations, Aren is much more personable and jolly. His humor tends for self-deprecation to express his natural humility, and his sense of humor is great. Generally charitable, Aren enjoys helping those in need (great or small.)
When in stressful situations, Aren tends to withdraw into knightly mannerisms and speak overly politely to all present. In combat, Aren is decisive and reckless, throwing himself at the enemy to attack as well as intercepting blows intended for others. If something or someone gets Aren sufficiently worked up, such as blatant injustices, he becomes passionately enraged and takes a very long time to fully calm down. Aren is generally blunt, but is polite about it (he is somewhat more polite and delicate with women.)
Aren is terrible with money, as he always tends to buy the best instead of settling for what would be adequate.
