haha, I didn't intend to say he had/has a teenage-phase, but hell, why not? He stars in NEW BLOOD (except Suntop, maybe Jethel, there is no really young elf there, they are only -comparetively- new to us)!
He was lamenting about "to (really) fly, only my father understood this", he probably really is/sees himself in a position, which seperates him from the other elves.
Hmm, and even if he gets mad about the "death" of Ahdri, this relationship doesn't seem that deep to me. It's only a mentioned one, never really shown.
