Typical Dialogue:

Gaelin IsilviereGaelin Isilviere

"Indeed! send the Count an enthusiastic affirmative. There are few things as pleasurable as visit with Count Harald, for he knows the fine arts of conversation and discussion such as you will not see very often."

"Bring me the Cyclopedia of Chancellors, I do not recall this reference to Hubre Dosiere."

"Son, I am concerned that your reforms cannot be undone if they prove imprudent. You should be cautious that you do not leave your heirs a realm they are unable to govern, for it is an unusual man who possesses your ability and energy."


Gaelin Isilviere is the Count of Islien. He is the son of Oisín Isilviere and Jehanne Tielen. He is married to Aerona Avan. Gaelin is the head of the famed Isilviere family.
Gaelin is a skilled politician and political strategist. Though he holds no office in Taeghas's court, his role in keeping the nobles behind the policies of his nephew, Darien Avan are critical to the smooth operation of the alliance between Avanil and Taeghas. Not only does the Count of Islien get along well with Darien, but he has good relations with the Count of Taeghas, Harald Khorien as well. Where Harald looks forward into the future by means of astrology, Gaelin looks backwards by means of history. Both enjoy their conversations and analysis of affairs, for they find their methods compliment each other nicely. Gaelin does not have much opportunity to discuss things with Darien Avan, but the Prince does send Gaelin letters asking his advice on a matter of policy now and then, and is always pleased with the well argued and firmly grounded analysis.
A historian and political thinker, Gaelin has written a history of post-Imperial Anuire, a commentary on Halraen Vegarius's Lives of the Emperors, and a geography of Taeghas identifying sites of local history. Gaelin is constantly working to generate new theories, or to prove or disprove existing theories. He approaches problems and theories with enthusiasm and skepticism, ignoring existing rules and opinions and defining his own approach to the resolution. He loves to discuss these concepts with others. The Count of Islien is very independent, unconventional, and original. He does not likely to place much value on traditional goals such as popularity and security. He is quite ingenious, and has unconventional thought patterns which allows him to analyze ideas in new ways. His personality is complicated, and he is often restless, leaving projects incomplete once he figures out their secrets.
