I will have all of the prints hanging above my head at night to protect me from evil necromancer slitches.

...about the casting bit! Bree and I had some fun imagining who would play our characters should a movie be made.
There were a few ideas batted around for Kithran. Daniella Ruah was my first thought, there, but I think we also mentioned Kate Beckinsdale, Catherine Zeta Jones and, for a "young Kith" Cassady McClincy came to mind. Lauren Cohen might also be a good choice, imo... Not sure if Bree has actually settled on anyone in particular, though.
I mean, come on!!! The hair, the attitude.... maybe?
We had some giggles talking about Ara and I mentioned that, when Rer first took over the character and described her hair and such, the first thought that came to mind was the girl who played Joan of Arc in Bill and Ted's Excellent adventure... that devolved into some craziness involving Ara teaching an aerobics class in a mall. Anyhoo, the more I thought about who I might actually cast in the role of our bladesinger, I kept coming back to Milla Jovovich... Something to do with the build and the facial features, I think.
She'd need pointy ears and golden eyes, of course, but if that's not a Sylvari face, I'm a housecat.
Ch'dau, of course, would be CGI and, were it possible, I figure he'd be voiced by the late, great Michael Clarke Duncan. Since Michael couldn't really do it, though, I think my second choice would be Dominic Purcell.

Stabby face is on point, but the s***-eating grin is equally important, and she has that down as well.
I'll have my people call her people and see if we can sign her for the part.

Have to admit
Both of these faces certainly match up with what I've been visualizing - bonus with Jovovich having short hair in that picture, that's not too dissimilar from how I think of Aranwen's hair. Though Aranwen's might be even a bit more rough and tumble so to speak.
By the way, doing a potentially very interesting collab with Breebles
