fingerprint Nature
Personality type - What personality type is The Erl King?

The Erl King is cruel and manipulative. He wants nothing but power, and will do anything to get it. He is demanding and slightly mad, and will stop at nothing to succeed. He is patient, which makes him all the more dangerous; he's immortal and therefore has no qualms with spending a century working towards taking control of only a few courts. He enjoys the suffering of others, and likes to pick his enemies off one by one. Has a particular bitterness towards Oberon, since he views him as superior to Oleander but was not the Summoned who partnered with him, since Oberon summoned Robin.

Manipulation, climbing, combat. He cannot lie, but is incredibly gifted when it comes to using manipulative language to get his way. Also is in full control of Oleander for a majority of the first book, and more or less uses him as a puppet.
