Maelorn is a morgëthri noble and a descendant form a nevaari bloodline. He became a mercenary after he had made too many enemies in his homeland. It took him much hard work to gain the trust of the free elves but he soon became a reliable escort on the seas of Haran.
He has a terrible temperament and can quickly fly into a rage. The times he can suppress his anger he usually carries a grudge and can become vengeful. He seeks power more than anything, he has a deep respect for his closest but even they can become disposable if the price is right.
His thirst for power comes from his desire for safety and peace, but if that has to be built on a sea of blood, so be it.
