Aelindria is astonishingly prodigious and powerful with force lightning and supremely accomplished in the art of force draining to drain the life and/or force energy from her targets to invigorate herself and grow stronger. Aelindria has managed to learn the forbidden Force Walk technique to bind force ghosts to herself and tap into their power; she eventually learns to devour the ghosts and absorb their power directly to herself.
Aelindria is also a highly proficient lightsaber duellist who favours speed and agility over raw power. Lastly she is skilled in many varied force techniques including healing, force cloak, mind manipulation, telekinesis and force deflect.
Though Aelindria is both evil and power-hungry as well as fully embraces the Dark Side she tampers it with tendencies usually more often associated with the light than the dark. She lives by the spirit of the Sith code, if not the letter; rather than only hate and anger she draws power from all her passions, including her joy and devotion.
Unlike many of her fellow Sith Aelindria is not devoid of compassion, mercy or loyalty. She is loyal to and protective of her friends and believes in helping and respecting her allies. Not only fairly humble for a Sith she is also a rather rational individual that unlike many capricious Sith will generally show mercy and spare captured enemies and forgive failed subordinates rather than simply kill them. Her devious and insidious nature is contrasted by her friendliness towards her fellow imperials, and often even healthy respect to her enemies.
Lastly betrayal and backstabbing is the one part of the Sith philosophy that she does not adhere to, and she will never betray an ally if she can avoid it, not even backstabbing her mentor as is usual for a Sith.
These qualities of caring for her people have often made her a well-liked character amongst those Imperials that have or does serve with or under her. Though it has not always endeared her to her fellow Sith, as many view these self-same qualities, as well as her alien heritage, as signs of weakness and unbecoming of a member of the Sith.
However while Aelindria does possess virtues rarely associated with her position she remains a Sith through and through. She thoroughly enjoys slaughtering her foes and those she feel deserves it, and while she always strives to strengthen the Empire one of the primary goals of doing so remains to crush the Republic. There are few things that satisfy her more than gaining dark power. A free-spirited individual who places much importance on being who she is, Aelindria reserves a special enmity for the rigidity and self-deniability of the Jedi code and its abhorrence of emotions and personal freedoms. Thus there is little she finds more enjoyable than fighting Jedi and to either prove wrong, kill or even corrupt them to the Dark Side where possible.
