Eranon, Elven Wildlander/Channeler
Eranon was born in the year 869 to Ineluki and Eilith in a small village to the west of Caradul. He was the last of four children. Proceeding him were Hirikai, Alameth, and Sijandi. Eranon was very young when the shadow rose in the north. The last alliance rode out to meet the enemy, among them were Ineluki and Hirikai. Neither of them ever returned. Soon the shadow was upon them, the orcs invaded and pushed in on the elves. Eilith sent the three remaining children to live with her sister and brother-in-law in Caradul. Sijandi quickly developed a strong sense of duty to his people. He began to train relentlessly along with many other young elves. Alameth, a talented channeler, offered her services to the witch queen in Caradul. She quickly worked her way into the service of the counsil. During his childhood, Eranon grew close with his cousin, Veradil, who was a similar age. Both young elves took to wandering in the relavtive safety immediately around Cardul. The two of them quickly befriended a Whisper Adept named Isiki. The two of them spent much of their time with him, learning of the forest, the whispering wood, and survival in their native land. When Sijandi matured to adulthood, he left to join the fight in the front lines against the orc armies. Meanwhile, Eranon and Veradil practiced using the longbow as well as their skills of survival and hunting at the direction if Isiki. The two of them became more involved in the plight of their people. Since they were still adolescent, they offered their services as couriers to the outposts, villages, between the resistances and various raiding groups. One day, in the north end of Erethor, Eranon was delivering a message to
One day, on a delivery to a small village in the southern Caraheen, Eranon was approached by a battered and maimed elf. He assaulted Eranon and called him the son of a traitor. He claimed to serve with his father in the Final stand. He claimed that his father vanished before the final assault, only to be spotted in amongst the orcs in the assault.
This news completely rocked Eranon’s world, and as such, he vanished into the woods of Erethor for some time, making only infrequent contact with friends and family. During this time, he lived off the land and searched where he could for any clues to the true nature of his father’s disappearance.
During this time, Eranon finally came of age, however, still could not bear to face his family or his people with the shadow of his father’s actions hanging over his head. One day, chance led him into a surprise encounter with his Cousin and a group of Elves. They had taken up as a group of raiders, striking outlying Orc camps and scouts. In this way, Eranon was brought back into the fold in the service of the Queen.
Eranon Continued to aid his fellow raiders until one day, he was called to the South. . .
Valendil: Caransil Elf Raider Eranon’s cousin with whom he grew up. Valendil is a rather gregarious caransil, unusual in these dark times. He grew up with Eranon, the two are as close as brothers. Valendil is currently working with a group of elven raiders in the heart of the Caraheen. The group tirelessly works to relieve the pressure on the main front, in their own small way. Though he seems to have a light heart, he, like Eranon, takes great pain in the destruction of his homeland and lives for the day when his home will be free gain. Valendil was the last person to see Eranon before his departure to the south.
Isiki: Caransil Whisper Adept A wise and solemn whisper adept who served as an early mentor to both Valendil and Eranon. Isiki trained Eranon in the way of the forest as well as how to gather and prepare herbs for their befefits. Eranon last saw Isiki when he took his message to the borders of the Veradeen before finding out about his father.
Jakob: Halfling Channeler A young Halfling channeler who Eranon has befriended in his travels throughout Erethor. Like many, Jakob is a refugee, or rather, the son of refgees. He was trained by the elves as a channeler, reveling in his freedom under their protection. Jakob is a healer, spending his time tending to the wounded that are brought back from the front lines.
Alamath: Caransil Channeler Eranon’s sister. She always had a natural gift for magic, but was always distant since the death of their father and the disappearance of their mother. She naturally became a channeler. She departed over 20 years ago for Caradul to serve the queen. Eranon has only rumors of her current whereabouts and activities.
Finaju: Miransil Druid One of the local healers in Caradul. An older elf who kept her ear to the ground. She always had a little gossip to share if one is inclined to put out the effort or the coin.
Silueth: Danisil Wildlander A fellow wildlander of the southland, the Aruun. Silueth taught Eranon the way through the Aruun on the way to Southern Erenland.
Jegger: Dorn Fighter A Dorn who got on Eranon’s bad side several years ago. During his hiatus from the whole of the Elves, Jegger still received regular visits from Eranon. Eranon took great personal insult at the refusal of some human refugees to adapt to a way of life that is less impactful on the forests of Erethor. Eranon and Jegger began in a stubborn disagreement that slowly escalated to nighttime raids, black eyes and dead livestock. Jegger is a warrior chief of a small settlement of refugees outside Cardul. Eranon has not seen Jegger for at about 4 years.
Ankarath: Erunsil Fighter A one-armed snow elf and veteran of the Last Battle. He was badly wounded and maimed in the battle and blames it on Ineluki, Eranon’s father. Ankarath believes that Ineluki defected to the ranks of the enemy to save his own skin. Ankarath blames all of Eranon’s family for betraying the elves and thinks that the traitorous blood flows through all of Ineluki’s spawn.
Sijandi: Caransil Fighter Eranon’s eldest brother. Sijandi taught Eranon to fight and use a bow. Sijandi already thought ill of Eranon due to his relationship with their father. Eranon’s introspective nature was taken as apathy towards the death of their father, whom Sijandi worshiped. Sijandi immediately took up the sword and fought alongside his kinsmen at the front against the orcs. Eranon never told Sijandi of the news of their father, however, when Eranon vanished (deserted as far as Sijandi was concerned), their ties were forever severed. Sijandi will no longer see nor acknowledge his brother.

- 15th Level" Hell's heart envies all other arrows... Hell's Heart may mimic the abilities of any arrow held in the same quiver for 24 hours. Unfortunately, there can be only one. Hell's heart steals the ability of that arrow (whether magical or physical) and acts as would that same arrow, reducing that arrow to splinters. Hell's heart may mimic up to 3d6 arrows per day, but all arrows in the quiver are destroyed - you must make the roll after the 24 hours. When fired, all the properties of the arrows that Hell's Heart has taken are used at the same time, as if all of the special properties were used simultaneously. The archer cannot change or control this effect, Hell's heart is a prideful weapon and always strikes with full power. After firing, each absorbed "arrow" has a 50% chance of being lost. If Hell's Heart absorbs arrows while it still has arrows in it, the 3d6 is rolled and the difference between the result and the number of arrows still contained is the number of new properties that Hell's Heart takes. If the rolled result is lower, no new properties are absorbed, but none are lost.
