Character Background

The illegitimate offspring of a human royal and a Kagonesti refugee, Ellum was given a substantial inheritance on the promise that he leave the land. As a consequence of his lack of stature, Ellum is vain, seeking information and material wealth for the sole purpose of enhancing his prestige. While he cloaks this behind a studious and focused demeanor, but always chooses his actions based on what brings him the largest advantage.

Though he holds no title, he is not adverse to using his bloodline as leverage when it suits him.


The Hand of Fate drawn for the character was as follows: 4 (Helms), 9 (Dragons), 2 (Orbs), 5 (Dragons), 9 (Moons), 7 (Orbs), 5 (Arrows), 6 (Shields), 6 (Arrows), 5 (Moons), 4 (Helms), 4 (Swords).

I'm fairly unfamiliar with the Dragonlance world and storyline, so any glaring errors in canon are the result of ignorance; I bought this box solely for access to the Saga rules, as I find card-based resolution mechanics interesting.
