"I would tell you of my past, but it is an uninteresting subject. Let us instead discuss the future."
Little is known of Johnh Aristaniss and his history; he and Manuel are withdrawn compared to other members of the Crimson Skulls, never letting their guard down even on the occasions when the group settles down in civilization. Nevertheless, though he never initiates conversations with others, if approached he appears to be quite congenial and positive in outlook, in contrast to the equally withdrawn, but melancholic, Manuel. From these interactions it is learned this he is a rare Carmi half-elf who left his Elvish caretakers after other pure-blood elves treated him poorly based on his half-human heritage. He is nearly always found in the company of Rose Draaness, and it is suspected the two may be involved with one another. In battle, he looses arrows from his longbow before wielding his longsword in melee, both with equally deadly skill.
