Personality: Career military man. Military bearing, and decorum. Social and Outgoing to his peers. Introspective of the past days events, seeing what he can learn from it. He journals during down time and is a heavily engaged reader of all things. Calculating mindset i.e.: making careful assessments before acting. Not overly cautious, but listens to the input of his people. Using that in weighing decisions Flexible in his approach to tactical goals, will take strategic considerations into account and abandon specific goals if need be. Provided he isn’t disobeying strict orders. Has not set foot on Vilya’Celeb=Silver Sky island, since it was seized by the crown. Struggling to regain family honour, even former rank and position as minor nobility. His service and sacrifices is his Means to his Ends. Thus he has given himself over to this life of service to the crown. He would kill his own traitorous brother to save his King. Honour attained in his Homeland is his utmost priority. Knighthoods, awards from other lands are secondary concerns. Slight tendency toward superiority, typically comes into play when Kane thinks another decision would be superior. Typically expressed through questioning statements, in particular “are you sure …” or “wouldn’t it be better …” in a heavily suggestive tone. Kane has commanded units of troops from 10 to 200 soldiers. The Elven notion of rank, and positional importance does not get associated with the number of troops they lead. A General among the Eldar, could command a Dozen elite soldiers. Eldar have far less notions of ego, than do humans. Religious beliefs: Venerates the Elven Pantheon as most elves do. Most elves are of the Larethian faith. *Relationship with his commanding officer: Kane is a Mid-ranking officer akin to a Human Captain. Served with Malcolm Edwards in 1071.
