Meaning ~ "Guardian of Capricorns"
Northern Water Tribe :: Northern Water Palace
Northern Water Tribe :: Northern Water Palace
Rank: Bender, Royal (usual dimension)
Kannik, a polar-monkey whose origins are unknown. Castiel happened upon him during a blizzard in his youth, when the monkey had somehow gotten frozen near his windowpane. Always the more compassionate twin, he adopted the creature. Kannik has been a part of the Royal Court since. He sleeps beside Castiel's bed each night, but is prone to sudden bouts of loud screeching. This is very unpleasant for the twins, who are light sleepers.
- Ice daggers and other sharp blades. His father taught him and Cassian to use these at an early age. He has since mastered this skill, much to Cassian's frustration, who is still just majorly adept.
- Hellstones. Hellstones are his father's personal inventions. The stones are clumps of ice planted like miniature bombs. When stepped on, a spurt of animated ice can either envelop the victim's entire body or trap their leg or foot, depending on the user's power. Castiel is advanced in this area.
- Bow and arrow. This weapon was to be utilized for hunting purposes, should the prince end up in any tough situation. The Northern Water Tribe, with its unpredictable blizzards and high winds, weapons such as bow and arrows need great precision and intelligence to master. Castiel has yet to master the weapon on his own territory.
- Suishou, a crystal sword passed from father to son. Castiel's father was the first to receive it. Castiel treats Suishou as if it is a human being, and is much warmer to her than Cassian is to Taki, his signature weapon.
December 31st, 889 AO
- Festive arts
- Occasionally chews on his hair when deep in thought
- Cannot sleep at all without reciting his prayers; even if it is about the strangest of things
- Despite being the older twin, Castiel succumbs to Cassian's overprotective attitude often enough

Indigo with darker/lighter highlights here and there. Castiel's hair is very long, smooth, and to his waist. He, like his brother, often secures his hair into a high ponytail using a ribbon. Castiel's ribbon is red. The color of their ribbons and their heights are the only way to physically tell them apart.
Blue-lavender, elegantly curved and wide
Mainly imperial design robes and furs. Often cloaked in pure white and blue furs, with a fluffed collar and thick sleeves to stay warm out and about. Inside the palace, Castiel indulges in soft cottons and smooth silks and velvet. His pampered lifestyle is very present in his fashion. He enjoys shiny things: pearls, jade, diamonds, crystals, gold -- you name it. Castiel does not go anywhere without his topaz earrings, a gift from his mother.
When the prince is finally forced to travel with Cassian, it is hard for Castiel to stop dressing so flashy as to not attract attention.
Pale, smooth, unblemished
Slender, but not frail; lean
This boy is the reputed 'Gem of his Tribe'. Castiel's benign, giving personality soothes his subordinates and elicits a never-ending stream of praises from men, women and children alike. Very intelligent, the boy takes in the smallest details with piercing clarity. He is very protective of his people, and works to make sure even the smallest imperfection is rectified.
Castiel's enthusiasm when it comes to aiding his country has marked him an ideal leader. However, Castiel's kind-hearted quality also shrouds him with a naive disposition. His father feels it would be very easy for others to take advantage of him, so he eventually sends him off into the 'real world' with his brother to learn the ways of 'common people', and to investigate the rumors of crusades.
At first, Castiel is taken aback by the rudeness of those around him. He is very unused to being treated like a common peasant or middle-class wanderer, despite his exotic appearance and skill. He is very accustomed to Cassian being at his aid whenever he is in trouble, despite being marginally stronger than the other twin. However, Castiel lacks experience and discipline. In his journey to overcome this, Cassian begins to treat him "cruelly".
It can be (dangerously) noted that, while Castiel has had extensive training on combat, he has yet to utilize these skills in battle. He is used to sitting on a throne, bringing out orders, which is why Cassian finds it hard to deal with him once he joins his travels. On almost all levels, Cassian is stronger than his older twin.

- Cassian's belittling
Prince Castiel and Prince Cassian were born during the Northern Tribal New Year. Castiel was born before midnight, on December 31st. Cassian was born on January 1st, and so therefore the twins do not share the same birthday. The manner of their birth was considered an omen, and throughout their infancy the boys were closely watched.
Growing up, Castiel and Cassian were inseparable. Being the foremost heir to the throne, Castiel went through more education than brother, and was taught both political, battle and practical tactics. Cassian had the freedom to lean more towards what interested him, which happened to be fighting and exploration.
Since it was so difficult to tell them apart, Castiel often got blamed for things Cassian would do, being the more troublesome twin. Cassian got praised for Castiel's actions. To avoid this, Castiel adopted more warm colors, such as white and red. Cassian chose cooler themes.
With the birth of his youngest brother, Roman, and the following death of their mother, Castiel buried himself into his studies and wanted little to do with the infant. As the twins grew to the point where it was time to establish more independence, Castiel was taken under his father's wing, and has been his young inquisitor since he was fourteen.
Castiel loves his family very much. He respects his father and brother, and deeply cares for his little sister and brother. The younger Leihengs were not home-schooled via his wishes. He did not want them to have the solitary life he and Cassian were forced to live.

IMAGE OF THE WEEK:
Pictured above (from left to right) are Kurapika, Bakura, and Kurama. These three are the reason why my forum name has been 'LadyKura' from day one. Cute, excellent strategists with a dark side and extremely hard edges, all of these characters are very similar in one way or another. In fact, the longer I think, the more things I can come up with these guys have in common.
