An ethereal youth with blond hair, slowly getting darker as he ages. His eyes are blue or gray depending on mood and the surrounding colors. He is quiet by nature and listens; perhaps to intently. Quick of hand and fleet of foot, Vaush can be quite rash in his actions, placing himself into motion without fully considering the consequences. He is also capable of deliberate thought and fully realizing the mechanization of those around him.
The Vaush Papers as they are presented here have become to expansive to be notated in a single document. My assistant, Edgar Brimwald, has begun collating the various folios for better organization. He is making use of the same codex that is used at the Queen’s University.

It is well known that Vaush put to paper in some great detail his initial travels with the Entian Highlanders. However it is not known why the entire episode is not mentioned in the folios that in most other respects seem to be an unapologetic accounting of his life. It is known that Vaush had a great deal of respect for the people of Entian highlands and especially the McPherson clan of Glenfeld; often coming to their aid and in at least one circumstance, taking arms with the Lord Simon Locke, under the Glenfeld banner.

It is known that this is the only portrait of Vaush. It was done when the subject was about eight years of age. There is literature that states that the artist was fascinated by the young man’s eyes. To accentuate this; the majority of the painting was done in sepia and represents one of the earliest uses of the technique. The painter D’Angelo captured the youth’s etherial nature with cant of the eye. The half smile represents Vaush’s mischeifious nature; a facet of his personality that was evident even at this young age. The painting’s background provides a halo effect granting Vaush an angelic character.
