Indeed there could still see some trace of the nobility and greatness of the Numenorians in Aldarian. She was a Dunadan which ment that she was a descended from those men and women whose ancestors were long ago fled from the destruction of the island of Numenor. The blood of the old Numenorians ran almost pure in her veins. And that could be seen. Aldarian was tall for a woman and her posture and appearance were royal. Her figure was well-proportioned and strong. Her hair was dark and usually plait to two long braids. She was pale as her skin color was much more lighter than the Dunadans usually had. She was well educated and possessed great skills in many professions. She had a singing voice which even the elves thought to be beautifull but those moments when she sang were rare. Military skills and the use of blade were more to her liking. Unfortunately, with the Numenorian blood, she had gained also the darker parts of her heritage. Proud she was, enormously proud of her heritage. Criticism towards herself she would not easily tolerated. Her proudness was also revealed with arrogance towards other people. She was always polite and correct but there could be sensed some sort of coldness or indifference around her. No wonder then that she had very few true friends. She was ambitious and power-hungry. She wanted to do great deeds from which she would be remembered for and so gain immortality which was otherwise, as a human, banned from her. Re-establishing the Kingdom of Cardolan was almost an obsession to her as her fore-fathers had been it's kings. This is how I descriped Aldarian, the main charachter of my Middle-Earth related novel, when I wrote it over ten years ago. I wanted to draw a new portrait of her as her last "pure" portrait is 7 years old. I have many newer pictures of her in my gallery but not a pure portrayals. So here she is with her mind and body in the peek condition. (although her days of the greatest power are still to come). Middle-earth and all related material are created by J.R.R Tolkien. Aldarian is created by me. And that text in the background says: Cardolan, My Kingdom, Aldarian.
