My First 4e Character

Elessar Calanor by ~Atlantean6 on deviantART

This is my own first 4e character. I'm determined to give it a playtest. While creating him, I found it completely and utterly frustrating that there wasn't any thing I could use for my concept, so I had to make do with what the Character Builder had available (and I had to use windows, WotC is making an assumption that everyone has windows, ugh!).

Moral Code: A part of his personality is his moral code. Elannar is Directed by his own moral compass, the stirrings in his heart. He follows his gut on principle.

Background: Elessar Calanor is the first son of Lord Earl Farathorn Calanor and the Lady Rowena Calanor. Because the family has distant elven blood from the Elves going back 5 generations, Elessar was given an Elvish name. Because he is first in line, the Lord Earl kept him on a tight leash and sent him to the Academy to be educated. He recently graduated with a Bachelor's degree and have returned home. He's frustrated at home, his home having become a hotbed of intrigue and politics. Although he can deftly maneuver through the intrigue at court as best as he can, he often leaves the family manor to explore the family lands.

Elessar has recently been betrothed in an arranged marriage by his mother, the Lady Rowena. His fiance has so far proven to be kind and considerate. And she seems to be more adroit in maneuvering the courts than he is. He has also fallen in love with her and thus confides in her often. However, she's not around often at night.

[Place Holder for the fiance's render]

During his childhood, Elessar had a childhood friend by the name of Elaine. A commoner she is blonde headed. He had great fun with Elaine before he went to the Academy to be educated. He fell in love with Elaine, seeing as how they had a lot in common. When he returned, Elaine had married a shopkeeper. The marriage is a bad one, but unlike his arranged betrothal Elaine seems to have married for love. Although she loves him and he doesn't love her.

Traits/Demeanor: Elessar is somewhat reserved, holding his anger in check. He's also shy, hiding his shyness with the Pride of the nobility. He is surprisingly confident and loyal to his friends. Persons who betray him soon lose his respect. He is also quite naive, taking most everything said at face value. But he is a natural leader, so its quite possible he will learn discernment.

Elessar is hot-headed. Meaning he feels anger or indignation quite easily. He mostly keeps this in check, but there were times that he does let his anger go. He usually takes it out on a tree or some other object rather than a person. However, he warned Elaine's husband by pushing him against a stone wall and holding him by the neck that if he ever hurt Elaine, he will kill him. Finally, he has a strange way of attracting girls and guys to him that are easily distracted. The girls and guys are easy pickings. He's a bit bored with the girls and he doesn't give the guys any attention.
