Bairn Verne

The ruler of Aresfin, Bairn Verne is descended from a long line of Verne Ordinators. As close to a pureblooded Kelorn as can be found in the Broken Kingdom, even the structure of the Free Ordinatry and Bairn’s title itself harkens back to the days of Kelorn occupation. Still, the Ordinator has made no attempt to contact any of the remaining fragments of the Kelorn nation and nor have any of his predecessors. Rather the convenience of this familiar structure has made Aresfin far more accessible to foreigners, and thus foreign trade, than any of the other lands of the Southmen and thusly has Aresfin begun, albeit only a little, to actually prosper.

Description


The gravity of Ordinator Verne’s demeanour carries through very clearly to his exterior. His dark hair worn short and is immaculately combed back from his face. He wears a small, neatly trimmed beard and a gold-plated circlet around his brow on all occasions. He could be called handsome, but noble would perhaps be a better description. Verne's face is unreadable, he shows no emotion outwardly, always wearing an expression of placid superiority no matter what the situation.

Personality


Bairn is an austere young man, with a taste for the finer things in life, but he is an adept politician and administrator. His word is absolute, and while he invites discussion he tolerates no discussion once his mind is made up. He has a fondness for riding and hunting, and keeps several small reserves with lodges within a day’s ride of the city, it is at these lodges that most of his political dealings take place, and where his court must gather to have any real involvement with the rulership of the Ordinatry. Bairn prides himself on his hunting, and anyone who can bring down a larger boar, or more boar than him in a day will easily capture his attention and respect. Despite his pride Bairn is a reasonable, and reasonably intelligent man, and due to his intense need to defeat the warlike reputation of his predecessors he has ensured that he remain quite approachable, so long as the approachee does so through the correct channels.
