Known to many as Ice, a pseudonym he took when he agreed to watch over Arthedain Hollin to repay a debt his mother owed to the Hollin line.

Quirks, Traits, Philosophy, etc.

-Faenthar is an eldarin supremist, feeling all other races are inferior to the first born, the shining ones, even elves have fallen from their place as part of the eladrin.

-Faenthar resents his father and dislikes him, but hates his mother with a burning passion. At first he favored his mother, but when he learned she had sullied herself by bearing a child with a human (and a Hollin at that) betraying all that she had taught him, his feelings for her crystalized into a deep abiding hatred.

-The only person he hates more than his mother is Garralon, the half-blood bastard that resulted from her union with the Hollins. The fact that Garralon has usurped the throne in Tantalus galls him to no end and he will not rest until Garralon is dead and his mother humiliated for her efforts in this scheme.

-Faenthar’s attitudes to his party members varies-He dislikes Arthedain but has developed a grudging respect for him

-he sees Gelmyr as a bit of a fop, reminding him way too much of his father which has led to a bit of a rivalry between the two Eladrin, though Ice would never admit to such because that would put Gelmyr on a level on par with him as rivals must be

-Faenthar has actually grown fond of Dawn ,though at first he saw her only as a curiosity since she was a conduit, but the time he spent with her in Tantalus working to save Avalaesca from her affliction has softened his views on her.

-Feanthar is still not sure what to make of Fox, She represents all that is uncivilized but he cannot deny her ability or her fierceness. He grudgingly respects her, but otherwise has no strong feelings for her.

-Faenthar is ambitious and prideful. At first he set out on this journey to remove the debt his family had incurred to humans, something that simply could not stand, and then became intrigued by the possibilities of this adventure when he learned of Dawn’s nature as a conduit and when he came into the possession of Grimmum’s Infenarum, an artifact tome of great power that has since passed on. Once he learned Garralon was involved in the troubles in Tantalus he became committed to aiding Arthedain reclaim his throne. The fact that Arthedain has begin to turn to him as an adviser and “court mage” of sorts suits Faenthar’s ambitions, for now. However, he does not so much support Arthedain as oppose Garralon, seeing Arthedain’s cause as the best means to the ends he seeks.

Appearance: Ice is tall and thin for an eladrin, with stark white hair and an elongated “horse-like” face. His eyes glow blue due to the spell-plague he contracted as a youth in one of his mother’s arcane experiments, making the overall impression of his as being creepy. The robe of eyes he wears only reinforces this perception.

People also perceive him as being arrogant, aloof, and condescending, essentially seeing him as a pompous ass, Faenthar however could care less what the baser creatures think of him.
