Vaelin usually presents himself to others as someone whom is arrogant, and because of his cool and collected composure, most people think that it's because he's a highblood, and thus, tend to avoid conflict with him. He has been able to successfully stay under the radar of the high bloods his entire life. And doesn't seem to mind being entirely alone, excluding his lusus. He's been training in martial arts, the art of stealth, and katana wielding for the majority of his life, and is exclusively good with blades, but not particularly talented with many other weapons. Deeming him completely useless with guns or batons or clubs. As he isn't physically as strong as he wishes he were. People tend to think of him as a self righteous prick that thinks too much of himself. When this is actually quite the opposite. Vaelin wishes to help others. He wishes to kill the Grand Highblood. As well as the Imperial Condesce. But remains unable to, due to his lack of social skills and his not so obvious self hatred. He spends a good amount of his time analyzing himself, and trying to understand himself, all in vain of course. He has a particularly heated kismesis with the higher blood, Ventus. The two of them go at it for hours if they're able. But Aurora does a good job at mediating the two. Vaelin has a bit of a secret passion for science. Mostly chemistry. He's sort of obsessed with math as well. And often calculates most of his options carefully. He is excellent at exploiting his own indifference, as well as the indifference of others. And he is a complete whiz at making things, but usually hides this from the general public.
