Aelfwine is a benevolent and chivalrous ruler for the city of Marleons. So much so that the burghers of the city send their best to aid him in his campaigns, wether he's fending off the northern rebels or the Jatu.
Aelfwine is one the 3 Sarleon Dukes. While he is the least dangerous of them, one would be harde pressed to say that he's weak. Donning heavy plates and morningstars, the Marleons Heavy Cavalry is all the support his actual knights need to crush formation who didn't take special precautions.
