Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Maralen is highly driven. He has a well-defined sense of honor and duty. And he takes his job very seriously.

But don't anger him by acting dishonorably, harming children, or harming or killing one he cares for. This earns his wrath... and then, one might actually see that Cold Efficiency he was trained to be...
