Appearance and Personality
He is an older man, probably in his late sixties, though his true age is unknown. He has leathery skin, and shaves when the mood strikes him. He was an enthusiastic constable. He often left his administrative duties to languish while he personally ran investigations and day to day operations.
Aradel was a constable in Elendel. He worked up to the rank of Constable-General of the Fourth Octant, where he retired after reaching the silent glass ceiling of promotions a non-noble could receive. After the resignation of Constable-General Brettin, Aradel came out of retirement to accept the position. He hired Marasi Colms as a constable. She served him as an assistant and crime analyst.
He headed the investigation into the massacre at Winsting Innate's auction. He brought Waxillium Ladrian into the investigation. The kandra Paalm was developed as a suspect. The actions of Paalm put Elendel into a state of near-revolution. To quell riots Replar Innate issued an executive order declaring a state of martial law and naming Aradel Lord High Constable. After the discovery that Innate had been replaced by Paalm, Marasi arranged to have MeLaan replace Innate for the purpose of quelling the crowd. When MeLaan began to fail, Aradel placed the Innate imposter under arrest for corruption. He quelled the crowd by promising to arrest other corrupt nobles.
