Name: Ignis Caleum
Occupation: Soldier seeking training as a Warder Recruit
Appearance: Ignis is 6 feet tall even and has an athletic build. His hair is blonde and shoulder length, and like most Arafellin, is braided with bells. His garb is relatively plain and utilitarian. He prefers leather armor for mobility purposes. He carries two swords on his back in the Arafellin style. Ignis’ personality is carefree. This shows in his usually cheerful demeanor. His training as a soldier in the Borderlands has helped him determine when he needs to be more serious. Ignis is courageous, often believing that courage isn’t the absence of fear, but it’s doing what needs to be done in spite of fear. Ignis has a large sense of honor and integrity.
History: Ignis was born in 976 NE in Tifan’s Well, Arafel. Growing up in the Borderlands, he was used to the ever present threat of the Blight and shadospawn. His father was an Arafellin soldier and Ignis wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps. There was one main difference between Ignis and his father. Ignis wanted to leave. It wasn’t unhappiness that caused this need to travel. Ignis just wanted to see the world and all it had to offer. Ignis wondered how he would accomplish both being a soldier and being able to travel.
At eighteen, he joined the Arafellin Military and often stood watch over the Blight. He has experienced combat with shadowspawn. Throughout his career, the idea of traveling never left him, and it wasn’t until an Aes Sedai traveled through with her Warder that he began to formulate a plan to see the world outside of the Borderlands. Ignis decided that his goal would be to travel to Tar Valon to train as a Warder.
Ignis saved every copper he could to begin his journey, and shortly after his twenty second birthday, he resigned, said goodbye to his family and friends, and hit the road south towards Tar Valon. The trip was mostly uneventful, but Ignis enjoyed it. Seeing Dragonmount, Ignis headed towards it until the White Tower itself became his new point of reference. Arriving at the Shining Walls, Ignis sighed as he entered the city itself. A new chapter had begun.
