If all else perished, and she remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and she were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger.Vestyn often seems quite serious and brooding. When he was younger, he seemed more light-hearted and naive. He is very close to his mother Adaline and looks up to her.
As a grown up man, Vestyns personality became increasingly complex. He has a troubling bloodlust that has often become a major problem for him. When he gives into the urge to turn it all off, he becomes rash, careless and destructive. The ‘ripper’ side of him usually causes him to push people away. The dark, smoldering fire that lurks in his heart, awakens only at times when Vestyn switches off his emotions. He changes from a sweet, caring person into a real assassin without compassion. His wicked attitude brings on that he can’t be trusted, he is a rare side of any coin and can’t be known to which know whether he’s heads or tails, because he will change within minutes or rather like seconds. He’s aggressive, calculating, cunning, proud and vicious. He doesn’t care for the lives of others anymore. Vestyn also has a raging temper. He acts out on it fairly often and is unforgiving no matter who is on the receiving end of it. There is nothing that can turn his feelings on, nothing but himself. Only he has the key to his humanity. But it is the question whether he wants to use it or not.
However, there is also a large part of Vestyn that cares deeply for his own humanity. As the witch Eris had once told him, his heart is pure, and that this would be his curse. This is what has caused a majority of the self-loathing and brooding, which has become deeply associated with Vestyns personality. When he is at his best, he is extremely caring and compassionate. He does not like to see others in pain and can be very wise and comforting to others. He can also be highly honorable, courageous and selfless, especially when it comes to the people he cares about. He is always willing to lend a helping hand when it is needed most and he will put the needs of others before his own. He is always willing to save people, especially those who need saving the most at a particular time. Vestyn is the kind of person who tries to protect and save everyone at the same time.
Vestyn is generally a very romantic person. His love for Faylice has highlighted how his values have changed since he met her and also how deep and loving he can be. He is often very sweet and gentle towards Faylice, but also very passionate about her. He has proven many times that respect and trust are very important to him when it comes to relationships and love. Even after all the ups and downs they have been through together, his love for her has only deepened and grown. Vestyn believes that she is his soulmate and the love of his life. He would do anything for her, even if it means that he has to sacrifice his own life for her.
What defines Vestyn is not some personality disorder which he unequivocally does not possess, but his deep and abiding loneliness and the sense of exile which has been with him from the very beginning.
