White feathery wings spread from the back of this tall, broad-shouldered man. His white-blonde hair has a permanently wind-swept appearance, and his pale skin bears a sheen like polished marble. His golden eyes appear to dance with luminous flames as he scans the scene before him.

The Balomirs have long held forth that the blood of angels runs in their family, and as such they were overjoyed when favorite daughter Nicolette gave birth to a winged child. Her husband, Gladforth Astrianis, was more subdued at the unique offspring. Still, he taught his son the ways of the sword known to all who grow up in a noble house in Mendev. Aasimars live quite a bit longer than humans, however, and develop slowly. Cassander's parents died of old age when he was scarcely an adolescent. Now grown, his sole surviving sister is elderly. Such is the lot of a long-lived race born to a short-lived family. Always, he endeavors to honor the memory of his parents, firm in the belief that they watch over him still.
As a child, Cassander experienced strange, vivid dreams. Often, a globe of light would lead him to a troubled or desolate landscape. The light gave him a feeling of warmth that came to him again in the temple of Iomedae. From that day forth, he knew that the globe of light and the Inheritor were one. He does not fully understand why the goddess has taken such an interest in him, but feels the heavy weight of profound destiny upon his shoulders. He believes that great things are expected of him, and suffers doubt at his ability to rise to such lofty expectations.
Cassander takes his responsibilities very seriously, leading many to believe at first encounter that he lacks a sense of humor. Those who know him well know he has a lighter side that reveals itself when he sees fit.
While aasimars are often well-regarded, Cassander has grown accustomed to being an outsider, suffering with grace the stares of ordinary folk. While he once shrank from such gawking, he now sets his jaw and strides forth with resolve, rarely hiding his wings and other aasimar features unless he absolutely must.
He is fiercely protective of all good folk, particularly those he regards as allies, and is uncompromising in their defense.
