A Father's Love by Storm-Torrent A Father's Love by Storm-Torrent
I've been meaning to put this picture up for some time. This is a picture of my FFXII character, Arden Slade, and his little daughter Ellianna--or Ellie.

Kind of a long backstory between them. But the short version is that he thought she was dead. This is just a snapshot of their finally being reunited.

Oh, haha, alrighty...

Arden became a Judge (in the FFXII sense of the word, which is more like an elite warrior) when he turned 19, a very young age to be accepted as a Judge—but due to his skill and intelligence was accepted. When he was 21, he married a beautiful lady named Amalia. They had a daughter named Ellianna a few years later. Everything seemed to be going well—he had a nice job and a lovely family. However, while Arden was working for the Archadian government as a judge, he began to disagree with a lot of their ideals.

Sooo, Arden and Amalia became involved in an underground force of spies working for Dalmasca, who are the opposition to Archadia. Arden's treachery was eventually found out by Archadia. As punishment, Arden was ordered to either kill his family to prove his loyalty to Archadia (cause they're twisted like that) or divulge the center for the spy group they were apart of. Arden did not at all want to kill his family, or betray his friends. Although, Amalia was absolutely unwilling to risk the lives of the Dalmascan Spies. They were possibly Dalmasca’s only hope! So…to Arden’s deep, deep remorse, his wife tells him to do as Archadia said and kill her and their daughter Ellie. So…he kills his wife and young daughter.

However! His daughter wasn't really killed. Arden didn't know that her wounds were not fatal. Unbeknownst to Arden, Ellie was taken in by one of the other Judges after Arden fled from Archadia greifstricken. A couple years later, they are reunited when Arden in arrested by Archadian troops led by the Judge who was raised Ellie. So...a little bittersweet--but Arden ends up getting out of that bind too and living happily with his daughter.

I'm sure that's WAY more detail than you wanted! LOL!
