rr elven char ciaran


NAME: Ciaran Hawthorne (pronounced "keer-in")




AGE: 28

RACE: Part-Elven/Part-Human, Riven Elf

TATTOO: Magical symbol proclaiming him a Blade

MOTHER: Maeve Hawthorne - police officer, died in line of duty though she, too, like her son was prone to illness. She died when Ciaran was 3.  She is the descendant of the fallen Blade.

FATHER: Egan Hawthorne - lawyer, alive, but distant from his son.  Ciaran’s near constant illnesses since childhood have made him afraid that Ciaran will die and leave him, too.

COMPANION: Twig, the fox, who is a little more than just a normal fox ...

SENSEI: Aiko Enomoto

CIARAN'S PERSONALITY: Though plagued by constant illnesses all his life, Ciaran has always chosen happiness and done physically what he can, which has kept his body lean and honed. He sees the transient nature of life so has learned to love every minute of it.

He has studied kendo for years with Aiko Enomoto who has helped him deal with the pain and debilitating weakness. Aiko has never treated him as broken, which has allowed Ciaran to see himself as a whole person.

Ciaran though has received bad news. The strange "blood cancer" that has been chipping away at his health and life has now accelerated. His doctor fears he has a month left, maybe more, but likely less. Determined to live every day to the fullest, Ciaran decides to go to his mother's family's cabin in the woods, but before he makes it there he sees the impossible: an Elven King on a white horse being chased by wraiths of pure darkness ...

  • Hooray for pronunciation helps! It's been driving me nuts not knowing if I'm pronouncing the names correctly in my head.

  • Ok there’s an insane level of crossover in details here to the Erl King. I’m just curious is this in anyway in the same universe?

    I gotta ask, Raythe, is it in the plans that Ciaran's human nature is the cause for his weakness given that it fights his elven nature. But once he bonds with his Elven King, the Elven magic begins to make his elven nature dominant? His appearance changing, his health not only returning but surpassing human barriers, to become supernatural?

    No, his human nature isn't. The bond needed between an Undriel and a Blade is just as needed by the Blade. Once they are bonded things will happen as they should.

    So, not Elven qualities later on? Or are humans of elven blood got such traits, hidden under a glamour?

    He has Elven qualities. He's an amazing warrior/swordsman/etc. Will he grow/become magical? Yes.
