Oleander is charming and suave, but beneath his seemingly pleasant exterior is a manipulative sociopath who will do anything to get what he wants. After an attempt at enchanting a fellow Fae backfired, he swore off of them and vowed only to corrupt mortal women, believing them weaker. He is very overdramatic and enjoys theatrics. While he was a hedonist and quite overambitious, the more vile actions he makes are the doing of the Erl King, a powerful entity that he summoned and allowed to possess him in order to gain power in a brash attempt in his youth. Once freed from this possession, Oleander is wracked with guilt and vows to kill the Erl King for what he did.
Very loose posture, uses lots of gesturing when he speaks. Prone to send black, slightly sparkling wisps of magic from his hands if he's upset.
Planning anything from an assassination to a party, manipulation, magic.
To put it simply, Oleander wants the best. He wants the best court, the best wife (or wives), the best palace, the best magic, etc. and will stop at nothing to achieve this. On a deeper level, he wants to be known, whether through admiration or fear.
Finding new young women, fae or human, to kidnap and make his bride, plotting, hosting elaborate parties, burning mortal villages to the ground, lounging around.
Manipulative, violates the personal space of others by entering their minds, ruthless, cunning, overdramatic, hedonistic, doesn't think his actions through.
Against humans, believing them to be foolish and weak, and against the rulers of the seasonal courts, particularly Spring due to his disagreements with the late Queen Juniper.
Near-unlimited power when possessed, but drained of it all when he's freed. As he recovers, he gains back some light manipulation.
Very highly educated in both classical and acedemic topics
