Unlike other elves, Elesseran lives life as if each day were his last, as if each moment carried the weight of decisions that raise up or bring low nations. He is much like Men -- mutable, emotional, and perhaps even a little chaotic -- and it is this quality that has bestowed him with the moniker of the Forsaken.

His family were horse trainers, breeders of the finest riding horses in all of the lands. In Darokin, they were well-known and sought out by any that needed a swift and sure steed. But a fateful caravan trip left Elesseran in the care of mercenaries when most of his family and their guardsmen were slain. When given the choice to go back to his clan or to stay with some of his protectors, Elesseran chose an affable spellcrafter and a company of mercenaries. To this day he doesn't quite know why, but perhaps it was because Elesseran's brothers and sisters were older and could carry the weight of the family's business without him. Or maybe it was wanderlust.

Traveling with a spellcaster and sellswords quickly gave Elesseran a taste of Darokin guilds, but also reinforced how fleeting life was. Money, affluence, power, politics, greed; these things came and went, and so did the lives of many people Elesseran knew and loved. Seeking to soak up the vibrancy and youth of a life lived fully, Elesseran may have stopped to take time and see the beauty of the things around him, or understand the wisdom of the past...

After learning the rudimentary skills necessary to begin a path to perfecting the arts of sword and bow, however, Elesseran has turned more fully to the study of the arcane arts. His spellcaster mentor -- Gregor Eyes-of-Flame -- has awoke in the young elf a new-found respect and thirst for history and lore, specifically that surrounding the magic of Elves and Men. Elesseran has quickly become obsessed with learning more, but not through dusty tomes or half-remembered myths and parables. He hungers to find and play with powerful magics, to touch the artifacts of his Calarrii ancestors, and to experience firsthand the magically-fortified stonecraft of the Dwarves.

Elesseran has struck out on his own. He seeks not gold nor glory -- only insofar as they might help his true motives, perhaps -- but knowledge. Knowledge of the world before, of his ancestors, and of the secrets of magic. That he's lived a life among mercenaries away from his clan has created an obstacle -- and perhaps has given him enemies he's not even aware of yet -- but nevertheless Elesseran the Forsaken walks the path of an adventurer in hopes of uncovering ancient secrets and discovering powerful new dweomers unlike any thus far known.


The Elf is robust for his size, clearly strong, with piercing blue eyes and a shock of white hair tied back into a flowing topknot. His skin is fairly darkly tanned, as it is for most Callarii. He wears scale armor of utilitarian appearance, with a long bow slung on one shoulder and a broadsword held in the opposite hand. Though his elfin features make him fair, his clothing and equipment is clearly weather-beaten.

Elesseran's Scorecard[edit]
