The lord of the Woodford manor, Acwel never met his father, Llewellyn, who died a year after his birth. His siblings, the twins Erion and Seren, along with his mother were the only family he knew, though he resented his mother in his childhood and youth for ignoring him while tending almost completely to his siblings. Nevertheless, he loves them as he loves his family: completely and loyally. He is a man who refuses to sit idly and is always trying to improve himself and do more with what he has, as he considers his father to have died due to complacency.

As such, the young man has great ambitions for his Manor and will do the utmost he can to lead them to prominence within Salisbury. Thus, the young lord of the manor seeks to estabilish the Woodford family as synonymous with diligence and service to the Earl.

Only time will tell if he will succeed.

During the autumn of 514, Acwel and his betrothed, Heulwen, along with his sister, Seren, left Salisbury on a mission for the Earl to better relations with Helvetia.


This Cymric man is moderately tall and broad of shoulder. His skin is pale, though the occasional scar can be seen which hints to a life of either combat or hunting, his fingers calloused and his hands rough. His nose is straight, although a bit on the long side, and his lips are thin. His beard seems to have been shaven though his hair is unkempt; long and left unattended, it falls past his shoulders and not much longer, unevenly. His eyes are a dark green, chilly, impassive.
