Name: Ranieh Arameis Winters
Skills: ice and wind magic, sword fighting, being a turtle
Likes: Arianna, Raikari, ice/snow/cold
Dislikes: Meiko, other cute fuzzy things, being turned into a turtle, being forced to wear the turtle costume, being called the Great Turtle of Ice, snowboarding, Lukar, failing at things, evil, having to choose between Arianna and Raikari, playing spin the bottle (without Arianna or Raikari, or with both).
Description: Often the first thing you notice about Rani is how pitiable he is. Poor boy, always overshadowed or outdone, he feels as though he can't do anything right, and his love life seems twisted beyond repair. But really he takes it all well, moping about but still doing what needs to be done, and he doesn't screw up half as much as he thinks. He also has a good deal of courage and follows his loyalties to the promise he made his brother Astal, facing even death to try to protect Arilla. Though Rani seems to be so solemn and serious, he's really very sweet, and it's hard not to like him. ^_^ We tease him and make fun of him, especially for being caught between the love of two girls, but he's too nice to make the more selfish choice to go for Arianna (who he really likes, but isn't liked by quite so much) and leave Raikari (who he considers more of a close friend) hurt. And hey, nice guys don't finish last, someday he'll get a break.
Background Info: Ranieh is Astal's younger brother, Atra's son. He leaves Ari to help Astal, who asks him to guard Arilla while he's away. Rani does so, and when Lukar shows up he actually dies trying to keep her safe. Lucky for him, Arianna comes just in time to revive him, and starts a timeline-altering chain reaction.
