Name(s): + Cedar - a human name that comes from the Forest Elven dialect, the original spelling being Caedr (KAY-der). Named by his mother, it's a play on words, possessing an Elven meaning while also referring to the tree under which he was born. + J'sera - Verba slang, given to him by a resident of Kavdam in Ced's young adult years. The local Nakam took to calling him 'true-shot' in their native tongue, but the word got lost in translation, abbreviating and contracting, and eventually arrived to Ced as 'J'sera'. He thought it an honour and adopted it immediately.Nickname/Alias: Ced. He has been called Cedric by some who incorrectly assume that that is what Ced is short for.

A black shoulder cloak when travelling. Similar to his Ranger garb, the differences are the colours and use of more comfortable, less practical textiles. + Cold Climates - A hooded wool and wolfskin poncho rests on his shoulders over thick winter linens. The shades are blues, greys and whites. Sturdy brown waxed boots keep his feet warm and dry, and a simple triskelion pendant hangs from his neck. + Ranger Garb - Brown linen trousers and a faded grey shirt. Soft-soled leather boots, and wrist-length fingerless gloves. Over the shirt he wears a red jerkin, sleeveless and high-necked.

Keys Owned: + The ward key of Wintermourne; a small emerald object. + A small key to a metal hatch given by Edward. + The key to his home in the Compendium. Intelligence: Ced is only ever as smart as the person who's playing him, so it usually depends on how much sleep I've had. Profession: Currently unemployed and living off the vast stored wealth of the collapsed Arduin vassal. Personality: He's a flawed and complex person. Excellent at suppressing impulses for the sake of playing 'the game', but occasionally drops the performance because he just can't resist being a smart arse. Most of his moral dilemmas and internal conflicts are clashes between these impulses and various noble (as he sees them) ideologies and principles. He believes the road to self perfection is walked by casting off all impulse and notion of self in pursuit of a few core principles. He tries his best to enjoy other people's company but very rarely succeeds. Motivated by self-improvement and whimsy, in equal parts.
