Axell is the first son and third child of Lord Tristan Swann of Stonehelm, born in 347. Though only 20 years of age, he has grown tall and strong, with a keen mind for lordship and tactics alike. When Axell was born, his father Tristan was already in his mid forties, and had suffered most of his life from a weak constitution, worried that his heir might be unready should he pass too early, Tristan spent huge amounts of House Swann's not insubstantial wealth on tutors and trainers to bring his son up well.
Axell was always inspired by tales of his great uncle Balon, a member of Robert Baratheon's Kingsguard, and by all accounts a truly chivalrous knight, as such Axell practiced with all forms of combat, becoming highly competent in most styles of fighting, and particularly talented with a bow. As Axell was surrounded by paid tutors he grew to know much of the histories of the seven kingdoms and of courtly intrigue and law.
Axell stands at 6 feet tall, a full foot above his father, with broad shoulders and an agile frame, he has medium length light brown hair, bright grey eyes, and a well kept beard.
