Winston is Violet’s ex fiance. He is a dashing half elf, and is a colonel in the Half Elf army. He would often come to Violet’s apothecary to obtain medicine for his many injuries he’d get from training, sailing, or exploring the Sacred Wilds. The two hit it off right away and soon fell in love.
After Charlotte’s death, Winston was a key player beefing up the military presence in Mediat and was a staunch advocate of war against the gnomes. He was a rock for Violet during her period or mourning. A few months after Charlotte’s death, when Lohengrin the chaos mage came to town, Winston did not want such a crazy presence to be in the town. Violet talked him into letting him come to Mediat. Violet thought there was a lot she could learn from him. Soon afterward the accident occured. Lohengrin died in the accident and Violet was badly disfigured.
Winston tried for a brief period of time to make it work between them, but he just couldn’t find the love that had blossomed between them those years ago. She had gone against what he said and look at what happened. Violet just wasn’t the same person he had fallen in love with. So he left her.
