Then war descended.

Pia Gronning & ?
Name A’den and Velin
Age A little past their prime now
Appearance A’den is a tall and swarthy man, with skin darkened and lined by the sun and eyes that seem to be perpetually laughing. He has shoulder length gray hair that is normally worn in a low ponytail, and a beard that continues to get whiter with every year.
Velin is as tall as A’den, a strong looking woman who is easy to spot in a crowd with a commanding presence. She continues to dress in full riders gear, and can often by found in the training grounds with the next batch of weyrlings. It is hard for her to imagine life that doesn’t revolve around dragonriders.
Personality A’den is brash, he is the loud man whose laugh can be heard from the corridors, the one who continues to be part of the main event. Age has not slowed his dynamism and force, and he continues to pour everything he has into enjoying his life.
Velin is his match and his equal. She is not quiet, nor serious. Firey and passionate about the Vella Crean and her role as an elder in training the next generation, she continues to be a vocal member of the council.
Ability A’den and Velin are wholly human. Some may remark that they are a little bit too spry for their age, but Shy claims its just their extremely healthy lifestyles.

A’den and Velin are a pair that have become synonymous with the council. Originally Pernese and riders who had served at Istabitha’s Weyr for turns, they settled into their new lives at the Vella Crean with ease. A’den in the skies as a Wing Second, Velin on the ground as a Weyrling Master. As time passed and the courts evolved, they continued to serve out their duties until the formation of the Blood Court.

The Blood Court was led by a young girl immature in her ways and experience: without the foresight and wisdom, or the history to bring together to the Light and Dark Courts. So the Council pair were loaned out to the Blood Court.

It was supposed to be a temporary placement: advisors to the young leader in the ways of the the Vella Crean, providing support and guidance from the shadows.

Then war descended.

A’den and Velin continue to serve as advisors to the Blood Court, but they have been instrumental in helping the courts in battle, drawing upon their experience as threadfighters.
