- Ael is a larger than life Hyur halfbreed who's priorities in life revolve around the frequent use of alcohol, imported cigars, and finding excuse to hedonize throughout the day. He is remarkably crude and honest which usually offends and impedes on the sensitivities of more civilized folk. He elects not to observe many Eorzan themes of decency, such as not belching or pounding on tables to demand more mead and food. He is loud, bold, merry, and lax. Aelfred will speak his mind without remorse in any setting, regardless of backlash or consequence.
In spite of his crass and unrefined demeanor, few may find more characters as approachable as Aelfred. He is quick to welcome others to his "Hearth", whether it be a simple table or the precise place he has decided to plop his rear and drink his honey-wine. He is very curious to hear a passerby's tales and feats of strength. He despises shyness in all forms, and desires that those in his company be boastful and straightforward. At face value, Aelfred can appear simple-minded and rather stubborn. However, his struggle of life at an early age following the Diaspora of his countrymen, and the experience of having lived in two nations has awarded him with a great deal of worldly knowledge. His wisdom can be off-set often by his propensity to become drunk and engage in tom-foolery, and being set off by specific topics that incite his rage such as slavery.
The Highlander may best be described of as a "Lazy Bear" as his past friends have affectionately named him. He is often inanimate and lax, and a warm figure to welcome most who approach with good or honest intentions. He can be quick to anger and maul what he judges as a threat to the physical well being of those close to him, or attacks on his beliefs. The Achilles's Heel to Aelfred's temperament is his unwavering demeanor that earns him as many enemies as it does allies. He simply could not be bothered if he insults and belittles those he considers "meek", "needy", or "petty". Aelfred lives for the moments where others may bask in his simple and honest life style, and that the courage he lends to his allies enables them to make better men and women of themselves.

- Aelfred stands out as an above average midlander Hyur given his mixed blood. He is notably soft-featured for a Hyur, and especially a Highlander. His body is more sturdy in proportion to most Highlanders of equal height; His chest numbers nearly forty five ilms around with massive pectoralis muscles often bulging past his form fitting clothing. He carries a softer core gut mildly tilts down a belt. His deltoid and tricep muscle groups are tremendous from decade of work hauling ship cargo and smuggled goods. His thighs hold proud hamstring and quadriceps that bulge like a caveman under a loincloth, and most his body is covered in a fine fur akin to his head hair's color, which is strangely off-white suggesting he might be greatly aged, despite his more youthful features that don't suggest someone almost 40 years of age, courtesy of the Sielamat ritual.
- His right eye is completely milky white with a traumatic cataract paired with a grotesque scar that runs vertically from brow to lower cheek bone. His left eye, however, holds a blood-red iris. He inherited it from his father, and it could mistake others into believing he is an albino were it not for his sun-kissed flesh.
