Eldarion stands about six feet tall. He is built like most half-elves, skinny for a human, but stocky for an elf. He keeps his jet black hair about shoulder length, and wears it “Legolas style,” but not as long. He is more well-kempt than most bounty hunters, as a result of his elven upbringing. He carries his two swords at his side. His enchanted blade, Teratanssia, makes Eldarion’s strikes even more deadly.
Eldarion uses his two swords in what he calls “tempest style.” The two blades allow Eldarion to both attack and parry in one fluid motion. Tempest style allows Eldarion to quickly attack his enemy and to easily move around the battlefield.
Eldarion is generally seen in his enchanted splint armor, which was found in the tunnels underneath Kullengaard. The magic in the armor wards against enemy weapons.
Eldarion was born to a human mother and elven father. Both of his parents’ were adventurers, perhaps even heroes. Eldarion’s parents found each other during their journeys and fell in love. When Eldarion was born they returned to the Forest of Amber to raise him. As he matured, Eldarion realized he wished to follow in his parents’ footsteps and become an adventurer himself. To facilitate this, he studied the tempest style of swordsmanship (swordselfship?), learning from the great elven master Galadhalion. Throughout his life, Eldarion keenly felt the difference between himself and his elven brethren, particularly in the area of swordplay. Perhaps the elves thought less of him because of his human blood, or perhaps he just imagined their slights.
When Eldarion was sixteen, his parents journeyed into the Feywild. “We desire to seek out adventure once again,” they told Eldarion. When they returned a fortnight later, his mother was strangely changed. The elves whispered that certain things in the Feywild were not meant for human eyes. Eldarion’s mother died soon after, and his father followed her to the grave in grief, or so Eldarion believed. With nothing to keep him in the Forest of Amber, he set out into the wide world. He resolved to become a great swordsman, great enough to match anyone, elf, human, dwarf, or creature unknown in hand to hand combat.
In the years, since his departure from the Forest of Amber Eldarion sought out opportunities to hone his skill with his blades, and if these opportunities involve monetary gain, so much the better. These opportunities took the form of protecting merchants from the bandits and goblins which prowl the roads of Haven, and the occasional bounty hunting job.
Recently, Eldarion discovered that his parents were still alive, although they have been reduced to a zombie-like state. Their minds have been imprisoned in the Book of Years. Eldarion seeks to free his parents from this curse above all else. To do this, he must destroy the fragments of Bolvagon to allow the book to revert to its human state. Then, he must destroy the book.
