Bio:


Raniel Leywalden was born to Lyrie and Sigivald Leywalden in Hamil, where Sigivald served as an Imperial Guard. Subsequently, Raniel saw precious little of his father growing up. Now, even less, as several years ago Sigivald was felled in service to the Empire against still unknown enemies. With his mother, Lyrie growing ill, and a younger sister, Anara to tend to, Raniel took to mercenary work, lacking the discipline to join the Imperial Guard.

Raniel has taken on a two sword fighting style into combat with a chivalrous sense of duty to defeat, but not kill, an enemy if he can help it. He does not use a shield, as he views it as sort of cheating. Though his outlook may make him seem it, he is not naive enough to leave clearly evil mean or beasts alive for they will not return the favor, however Raniel enjoys not only the thrill of adventure, but the measuring of his own skill against an opponents that he may clash with more than once. Besides, today’s contracted enemy is tomorrow’s contracted friend. in the world of mercenary work, its best to make friends, not enemies.

That being said, as a man raised in the worship of Syr Evan, anytime the innocent are in need of protecting, Raniel will come to their aid no matter the necessary force, While his worship of Syr Evan is strong, he also has some ties to the cult of the destroyers. While he doesn’t exactly worship Dragons, he neither truly hates nor fears them (in temperament at least, no wise man does not fear fighting a dragon), for he sees them as perhaps a useful tool to keep humanity from falling into the dark rabble many often do, as evidenced by his fathers murder.)

Taking what jobs he could, Raniel is sending much of his money to take care of his family, and worked many jobs, and with many mercenary companies before settling with the Delvers in Desya. While distant from family, he works knowing his family is financially taken care of, and that he works for people of goodness. He has a strong sense for respect for the company’s leader, Jerrik Theophilos Smythe, for whom Raniel is proud to serve with a former Imperial Guardsman, a man not altogether that different from his father.

While Raniel can be excited by an adventure or combat, he faces adversity with a cool head.

Unless someone hurts an innocent, then all bets are off…
