A fabled magician from Saphery who traveled to Avelorn in an attempt to court the Everqueen, when he got there he found Tyrion as her chief courtier and instead turned his attention to the Everqueen's beautiful and powerful younger sister Elena, Jewel of Alverlorn.
Noble Hawkeye (yes i know i've used that name but that's because i like this character and it's fitting)
Born and raised in the court of the Everqueen prior to the Great Chaos Incursion, it was Hawkeye who sent Tyrion to the Everqueen when the Dark Elves attacked, whilst Tyrion protected Alarielle, Hawkeye rushed to find Elena. Bursting into her chamber, Hawkeye found a Dark Elf assasin attempting to slay Elena, with uncanny precision he fired his bow, three arrows caught the assasin and Hawkeye called his great eagle, Beaky (dont ask), with Elena and Hawkeye safe, Beaky flew to the far side of Charace. Nothing is known of what happened after they fled but when they were found by Finubar and Tyrion, in the 140th year of Finubar's reign, they were inseperable.
Mage Elena, Sister to the Everqueen
Younger sister to Alarielle, Elena is a talanted Magician who acompanies her champion Hawkeye and an enthusiastic courtier Khendar. Whilst not as "powerful" as Alarielle, Elena's powers are constant, whilst Alarielle's power is linked to her land.
20 Archers (as their leader is Hawkeye all champions are Eagle-eyes.) two units of ten.
These archers have accompanied Hawkeye for many years, in the combat trials of Alvelorn one of them is always the best. There are none in all the land of Alvelorn, aside from Hawkeye, who is a better marksman.
21 Dragon Princes (three units of 7)
These arrogant nobles of Caledor have traveled far to the court of Alvelorn to show off their skills and thereby impress the Everqueen in a jousting tournemant, however, none can stand before Tyrion and Malhandir and so ashamed these "Princes of Caledor" have pledged their honour to protect Elena.
8 Sword Masters
These legendary warriors of the white tower accompanied Khendar to Alverlorn and whilst their attempted to court Alarielle aswell, Tyrion defeated them all, first one at a time then all seven at once. To regain their honour after this dreadful defeat they have sworn an oath to Tyrion who instructed them to serve and honour Elena.
3 Eagle Claw Bolt Throwers
The Lothern Sea Guard who crew these Bolt Throwers were gifted by Finubar to his little sister-in-law as a celebration gift when Elena was found alive in Charace.
This great eagle was first spotted near the army by the archers, noone quite understands why it is here but there have been no complaints when it appears for whenever it appears the enemy's war machines and scouts are suddenly silenced.
Okay, thats it, yes i know the army is themed around a mage but i cant get another Archmage until i field a 3,000 point army. but this is a 2,000 point army so... anyways hope you guys like it

I don't think it's approrpriate to name a dark damon lord bubbles...
because it is an Avelorn themed army list, I think that Elena should be the Archmage and should be on a unicorn.
Also, Avelorn supposedly has a huge treeman population so I might make one available as a Rare unit choice in the place of the Great Eagle.
It all looks very good, and has promise. The only thing which I could see raising eyebrows is that you break canon on a few occasions.
1- the Everqueen is never really mentioned to have a sister
2- you've tied Hawkeye into a major event in Elven history. Most of the major participants in these events have already been named.
The only other "negative" that I can find is the use of the name Hawkeye. I know that it's your forum name, so you must like it, but it honestly doesn't sound... "elfy". Looking through the armybook, I found that their rune "Senlui" is a fitting translation for an archer, it means 'Swiftness or Accuracy'. And please, I know you said not to ask, but please change his eagle's name. There are name generators online for use by Roleplayers. Some have excellent elven names.
Everything else is golden. To fix the canon problem, just tone down the roles of your characters. Perhaps while Tyrion set off so recklessly to find the everqueen, Hawkeye travelled out from Avelorn to rally its army in their absence. Elena may well be a favored Handmaiden to the Everqueen, perhaps rumored to be related to her. There's nothing wrong with what you already have, in any capacity- I'm only stating that as written, you might catch some disapproving glances.
Well, my two cents are what they are......
For an Averlorn themed army, I know that in the past there has been a EverQueen's guard unit, but I doubt those models are available, so yes, I see the reason to pass on that.
I think putting her either on a unicorn or perhaps a special unicorn-drawn Chariot would be more "in theme" with her.
Drop the Bolt Throwers, they are not really "Avelorn" themed either. Allow instead a Treeman from the wood elf army list as a Rare Unit.
For some reason, I think White Lions would be more appropriate to be in such an army as well. And because the Everqueen would draw the best from all realms to protect her younger sister (I have no problem with that historionics, btw), the 3 units of dragon princes should be come 1 DP/1 Silver Helm/1 Ellyrian Riders.
Perhaps grant her a discount price (maybe 10% off) the price of a great eagle for a mount; or to allow Pegasus into her army list, again at a lower price as Pegasi seem more appropriate in such a themed army setting.
