Vaneyl Ashkevron is a character in Mercedes Lackey's Last Herald-Mage series. He is the firstborn son of a minor lord. Having issues with Vanyel's delicate nature and love for music, his father sends him away to be trained by his Aunt, Herald-Mage Savil.
Even though he is gay, Vanyel was my first book boyfriend. Being 16 years-old when I read the series, the sweet Byronic Hero definitely piqued my fancy. The tall, dark, handsome teenager -- later, man -- looking for a gentle place to fall was enough to bring me to my knees. Now, even though I still adore him, I might be more inclined to slap him out of his moodiness ^_~ However, when he shows up in a later series, I could just kiss him!
