Talanor, the Bright Tower
Son of Enasilaor; the Dullard
Valan Aleamitore, son of Enasilaor, was the Keeper of History for the Aleamitore House of First Elves following his father’s death in 4261 E.C. Valan was considered a simple thinker among the noble elves. While clever and having a vast capacity of memory, Valor’s insights into the elvish history, especially as they interacted with the Ealintaine during the Godling Wars, lack depth and understanding.
An excerpt from What the Wise Know: A Compendium of Commentaries and Emendations on ‘Of Creation and the Greater Spirits’
Much ink has been spilt over the nature of beauty. What is beauty? How do we know it? Ealiannë once wrote that beauty is the perfection of being that is self-evident to perception. Other lesser thinkers, such as Valan Aleamitore, failing to understand the Diviner’s simple wisdom, argue that the perfection that is beauty is found in being fit for a circumstance or what is needful to the situation. Valan reduces beauty to utility and would rightly be forgotten if not for the famous writings of his father Enasilaor…
…Lesser thinkers, such as Valan, would have us believe that Miravynn is a shape changer, shifting to be what is most meet for her desire and the circumstances. However, once again, this is a failure to comprehend perfection. It is not Miravynn that changes. It is our perceptions that change as we glimpse her nature as beauty.
