Faceclaim: Matt Ryan
To him, his greatest strength would be his curiosity. The desire to uncover the mysterious is inexplicably important, and delving into the past, whether through written or oral evidence, is a true passion of his. Most comfortable among books and scholars, when he is freed from his shell, he becomes an earnest and honest friend. Never one to shy away from making observations, whether polite or not, Aeodan is often either liked immensely, or detested heatedly.
As a child, his parents often spoke to him as though his mind were as fragile as his body. They coddled him, far more so than Edalene, and it drove Aeodan’s desire to succeed, either to spite them or despite them. From an early age, Aeodan began his voracious quest for knowledge, finding that he could garner more information from the people around him than dusty old tomes. Not that he didn’t appreciate the dusty tomes, he just utilized them less than his sister.
Ever curious, Aeodan spent much of his time outside, much to his parents’ chagrin. Of necessity, they demanded that Eda accompany him everywhere, and the two grew to be close. Though they were so very similar, they were different enough to interest each other, and they never grew tired of one another. To Aeodan, Eda was the best friend he could want.
From the time he could read, which was earlier than most, Aeodan spent his time between the libraries and public places, always carrying a book or chart with him. He would sit under the trees for hours, breathing best in the fresh air of a park, and would pore over translations to learn languages, or to study the history of Rynmere and its people. And whenever he found something interesting, he would share it with Edalene, and the two would delight with each other.
As they grew older, though, their interests diverged and became more apparent. His years in school proved to be intensely difficult for Aeodan, but not because of the studies. Highly perceptive, Aeodan became disinterested in making connections with others, outside of Edalene, and received teasing and criticism in light of it. He withdrew into his studies, fueling his fire ever further to ensure his success. It did not take long before his studies consumed him.
When he was old enough, he applied to the University of Rynmere, hoping to study for his marks in history or anthropology. In order to help pay his way, he applied for a job as an assistant researcher, much as his sister did, though in the field of anthropology.

- One Body
Summary: Aeodan and Edalene are permanently linked now. While they are within the same city, they will share injuries. If farther away than that, only the scars and impressions of such wounds will find them. If one dies, so will the other.
- Empathic Bond
Summary: While in close proximity, Aeodan and Edalene will be able to feel eachother’s emotions as if they are their own. This can cause a fairly powerful echo chamber if they don’t learn to keep their inner selves separate. This can be mitigated with Discipline or Meditation
Summary: While within the same room or close proximity, Aeodan can harness a small measure of the SongStone’s power.
Trial by Fire
- Ninacky's Statue
Summary: When held, this object fills the user with the wild, excited abandon of her spirit. All sources of fire in a 30 foot radius will leap and dance, encouraged to grow. Any fire effected in such a way can be taken by the user of this Souvenir and placed on other surfaces to burn, with no damage to the user
- Twin Parchments
Summary:The ink is full now, but must be refilled with your own blood. You may write on both sides of the parchment and when read on its partner, it will fade off of the parchment you wrote on, opening it up to be responded on by the other. If destroyed, the other parchment (its twin) will crumble to dust.
