Aidan, Emissary of the Twelve
The emissaries of the Twelve appeared in 4514 (45 AT). Though they exist as subordinates to the Twelve, Aidan has become their de facto leader, likely due to the fact that he represents two Paragons where the other eight emissaries only represent one each. Aidan speaks for Kujata and Kuribu, Paragons of war and peace respectively. The origins of the emissaries is unknown, but it is thought that whatever force created them had the foresight to have a balancing check between the two opposed Paragons. The emissaries are humanoid elemental beings, each reminiscent of their respective Paragons. Aidan is a slight humanoid figure made of obsidian, after Kujata. Flames radiate from his body at the joints, and his face is a flattened mask backlit by the same fire. The magical fire does not burn or heat unless Aidan wills it to. Aidan is a natural leader for the emissaries, and his friendly demeanor makes him an effective diplomat to the rest of Khasrana. His strange form is off-putting to some when they first meet him, but Aidan can quickly win them over with his sense of humor. He can have a bit of trouble taking things seriously at times, but he is powerful and effective when he needs to be. Aidan's friendship with the elvish hunter Antora Kural saved her life when she was accused of colluding to destroy the Avatar of Naught. He had been sent by the Pavilion to investigate the Paragon's destruction, and when he found Antora there the two greeted each other like lifelong friends. He did not provide an alibi for Antora's disappearance, but as the voice of the Paragons he did not need to. Antora brings a more contemplative side out of Aidan, while Aidan's presence encourages Antora to be more outgoing. The two are each other's closest friends, and together they make a powerful enemy of the Whitefire. As a mage, Aidan is nearly unmatched across Khasrana. He specifies in twinning magic - duplicating spells, objects, and even people. Copying a person is difficult for him, though, and potentially dangerous for the subject. He will only duplicate a person if there is established trust between him and the subject.

The two fought the Whitefire together in what they say was a small frontier town in Midisa, but they keep the name of the town and the circumstances of the clash as close secrets.
