Interesting base for a character, although there are a few things that I might address.

Although the amount of parallels between the Forsworn and their Reachmen ancestors could be debated it appears that only female Forsworn may be shamans, which would make sense given the relationship between the Reachmen and their hagravens. Assuming your character is pre-Forsworn and made for RPs taking place in the Interregnum then this same restriction might or might not take place during that time frame. This isn't a criticism, I just thought it might be something relevant. It's feasible that the character is still lore-friendly by assuming that male shamans existed in the Interregnum (AFAIK no lore specifically states anything to the contrary, might need a correction on this.) or that the character was made shaman in an unusual set of circumstances.

If you're not done with making the character, then I might humbly suggest putting some more information into the character's motives and personality so that we might get an idea of who Áed is as a person, and not just what happened to him.

Definitely not a bad bio, though. If you're looking for ideas in regards to the directions to expand your character, I might suggest looking at Horizon Seeker and Thorfinn's characters.

EDIT: Altered the first paragraph to provide a better explanation. Sorry 'bout that.

It's not damning as far as I know as you could feasibly get away with saying that male shamans existed in the Interregnum, as AFAIK no lore really proves otherwise.(Source)

I did consider changing it, but then again this character was based in the second era(pre forsworn)

I am still developing and evolving on this character. Thank you for the advice.
