House Description
House Hallewyn is a new house compared to the others in the Vandermark, formed after the war. Cautious in trusting others and yet forward-thinking in technology, they are an unusual combination of traits. “All is Flux,” their House words, is a way of life: they should prepare themselves for change and adjust their lives accordingly. Change and their bond with each other are the true constants. The Hallewyns pride themselves on their prowess with the bow, as well as herbal remedies. They examined and catalogued the majority of the plants in the forest around them and how to utilize their potential.

Secrets are forbidden within House Hallewyn, since if its own members are untrustworthy, how can they instill loyalty with other houses? Tact and cunning are also praised traits, which are connected with the self-preservation of the house. This does not mean that they will change sides with the flip of a coin, as their promises are their oaths. The Hallewyns have a variety of hair and eye colorings, but they are all lean and toned from training since they were young. The nobles and commoners live in the trees and have no fear of heights or the dark.

When a problem confronts him, Veral searches as quickly as he can to find a solution. He prefers to act quickly to solve whatever crosses him before the problem grows into something bigger and harder to tackle. His impulsiveness to act can lead him astray at times, so he relies on Lorrella to aid him in making the correct decisions. He values her advice greatly and brings every major conundrum to her so that they can work together. He is a firm believer that life is better without secrets and trusts everyone in his house implicitly. If he is to give his life for someone, then he expects the same in return.

He prides himself on his skill with a bow and arrow and has practiced working with herbal remedies when he was a young child. The standing of his house and the wellbeing of everyone in it is important to him. Though his time is limited, he tries to get to know the people who works for him, or at least treat them with some decency. In order not to seem too soft, however, he punishes people severely who keep secrets, steal or murder. There are some commoners who call him “The Brow” for his thick pair of eyebrows -- if he furrows his brow at someone, that means they are in serious trouble. Ordinarily, he is smiling and laidback.
Being a relatively new House Veral wants to increase the standing of the Hallewyn family. He believes it is his duty to leave his House stronger, richer and with more influence than when he became Lord. However he refuses to do so with underhanded tactics. He is an honourable man, and after his family his honour means more to him than anything in the world.

Veral has an iron sense of justice. A lord's first duty is not to make himself richer, but to keep the King's peace. The small folk are important to him, and he genuinely cares about them.

History:

Posted by Ineth
Quote:
Veral was born to Ives Hallewyn and Pomona Landalis in the foresty city of Bindenhall, whereafter he had three years of being spoilt by his parents. When his sister Colette was born and Jehan, Michelle, and Ophelia followed, he was disappointed not to have all the attention anymore. This changed when they grew older and he was able to have them as companions training and learning. He took care of them, though bossed them around on occasion as big brothers did.

He found that he had an aptitude for archery, their House’s specialty, and focused on improving himself in that as well as creating herbal remedies to make his parents proud. His mother Pomona thought that it was necessary for the children to be exposed to as many social situations as possible to prepare them for the future and thus the Hallewyn children learned how to talk to adults and others their own ages.

When Veral turned seventeen, it was time for him to find a wife and the Hallewyns alligned themselves with the Reyneirs. Veral fell for Lorrella hard and had no problem marrying her. Lorrella brought much appreciated skills into the Hallewyn house and nine months later, their son Simon was born. Two years later, their daughter Marie joined them and Veral couldn’t be happier. Unfortunately, Ives died of the plague and so Veral and Lorrella became the new Lord and Lady. The adjustment for Veral was difficult at first because he mourned his father deeply and he knew that filling his father’s shoes would be difficult He did his best to be approachable and helpful, while at the same time, proving that he was a leader who needed to be obeyed.
His rule has been peaceful so far. His main concern has been repairing the damage done to his land and people by the plague. It has not been easy, but with the help of his beloved wife, he has managed to do a great deal of work.


Writing Sample:

The rhythmic scrapping of a quill was drowned out by Veral's sigh. He picked up the brown parchment, and read it over. An order, to a landed knight sworn to his House, to stop the harsh treatment of the locals in a small village near his lands. The writing was harsh, too harsh perhaps, but ''The Brow'' would not allow his small folk to be harmed or mistreated. He folded the parchment and picked up the melted wax, suspended over the flickering candle. He poured the green liquid onto the brown, and sealed it with the bow and arrow of his House.

He had been working before dawn, the sun was high in the sky now, and Lord Hallewyn was fighting to keep his eyes open. Slowly Veral stretched to pick up the next scroll from the largre dusty pile on his desk. But he stopped himself when he heard the unmistakable ''Twang'' of an arrow coming from the courtyard. The wooden chair scrapped across the stone floor as he pushed himself to his feet. He opened the wooden shutters and walked onto the balcony.

''Haha that was rubbish Simon!'' Yelled a young girl, a pale bow in her hands.

''The wind blew at the wrong time! It wasn't my fault.'' Protested her brother. The boy pulled an arrow from the ground, firing it within seconds, the arrow flew through the air, striking the target close to the centre. ''See...'' he said.

''FATHER!'' Marie cried when she saw Veral watching them. A large smile spread over the Lord's face. His children were everything to him.

''Are you finished with your business yet Father?'' Simon shouted.

Veral scratched the stubble on his cheek as he thought for a moment. All the vital work had been completed. He decided the rest could be put of till tomorrow. He nodded. ''I'll come down, wait there.''

It didn't take long for Veral to reach the courtyard. He smiled at everyone he passed, he would usually stop and exchange a few words with their servants, but he was in a hurry. It was a mild day, with a slight breeze. Veral could see for miles, high above the forest, from his forest-top castle. Marie and Simon ran into his arms when they saw him, he kissed each of them on their heads and hugged them tightly.

''Here,'' Simon said, as he passed the bow to him. Simon chuckled. He scooped up an arrow and shot. It hit the target, dead centre. Like every member of his House he had a prodigious skill for archery, and he loved passing it on to his children.

Veral turned, he heard his daughter say something, but he didn't catch the whole sentence over the sound of a galloping horse. The horse was bay brown, the rider looked exhausted, almost falling from his saddle. Veral saw him slipping, he ran to the man and caught him before he hit the floor.

''Milord, the village...''

The man's voice was raspy, he was dirty and smelt of horse and sweat. ''Simon, get some water, Marie get the Doctor.'' Veral took of his cloak, green ermine, trimmed with white wool, and rolled it up into a cushion for the man's head. He tried to speak.

''Wait my friend, my son is bringing water.'' Just then Simon came running back, a skin in hand, he knelt next to his father.

''Thank you son,'' Veral dripped the water into the man's open mouth as Marie returned with a Doctor.

''Milord, the village. My village, has been attacked. They sacked it, burned our homes, took our women. Please...'' The man feinted. The physician, fat and slow with age, wobbled to see the man. Veral stood, his brow furrowed.
