Personality:
Bryce's first love has always been and will always be Edolon. Raised with a certain pride in the kingdom his brother was fated to rule, he was primed and prepped from infancy to serve as his adviser and confidant, and in this, Bryce never shirked. He has a very strong sense of loyalty to crown and country, and never once thought that taking a blade for either was a sacrifice or a burden. It was an obligation AND a privilege. To this end, he had always been close to his older brother, taking his safety as a top priority not just because Rothgar was his brother but because he was going to be the future king. In return, the relationship between the two of them was very close, and Rothgar was always kind and respectful to him, especially as they got older and Bryce's talent in politics began to manifest.

He is a very thoughtful man, one who thinks before he acts, and then thinks again just to be sure. But he is a quick thinker and can come up with a plan in a pinch. He is also quite capable of seeing a situation from many perspectives, a talent that came due to his overly cautious demeanor which borders on mild paranoia. He really is the sort to believe that anything and everything could be a threat, and while he justifies this as simply being prepared for any scenario, there were a few years there where it became an obsession and he very nearly made himself sick over it. Especially at the turn of the century when most of his blond hair started to go gray prematurely.

He is extremely protective and fond of all of his family members... Even the ones that sometimes drive him to distraction or to the brink of insanity. Not a man with a quick temper, his kin have a special talent for testing his normally solid patience. Especially Keegan and Kadreth. Kadreth in particular whom he is usually seen in the company of. If one has ever or does bear the last name Vellfyre, they can count on Bryce's everlasting dedication to their comfort and their safety. In this, he is extremely dependable.

Despite his difficulty in trusting people outside of his family, he has always been charismatic - loving to put on a show. He was never the sort who demanded attention, but he never shied away when he got it either. He is one for the stories and can regale a crowd with a tale for hours. Of course, he is prone to adding a bit here or there, or exaggerating for effect, but it is always for the crowd's pleasure.

Bryce is a skilled knight, excelling in hand to hand combat. He is talented with a blade, but since his broken arm sometimes experiences a stiffness that hinders his speed. He is decent at archery, but he does not care for it and will scowl at you most intensely if you hand him a bow. In his tourney days, he preferred competing in the melee and the joust.
He is devoted to his wife and his children, more so than the rest of the family with the exception of maybe Jason. He was lucky in that he was able to come to love his wife, and through their union they had among the most wonderful children in all of Edolon (though he may be biased... and... yes, with the exception of maybe Kain). He was always sure to spend time with his children as they were growing up, and he felt a very deep sense of loss whenever he sent his boys away to continue their training under other lords and knights. He also spent a lot of time with his nephews and nieces, finding himself to be rather good with children. He supposed it had a lot to do with patience, but he also knew the danger of resentment and jealousy and also the danger of any of them feeling like they were unappreciated.
