Aerenal Elf

Aerenal Elf

Prerequisite:  Elf, Aerenal Background

You grew up alongside your deathless ancestors within the island nation of Aerenal.  As you grew, you began to revere the Undying Court and studied the ancient necromantic magic of your people.  You also learned to paint your face in the traditional skull style honored among your people.

Up until now, you’ve lived your life among others of your kind, the emissaries from the dragon-marked houses a mere curiosity.  You were content to continue your studies and prepare to defend your homeland in a time of need.

That all changed when, one day, you were summoned before the Undying Court and told that you had a greater purpose.  The court ordered you to travel to Khorvaire to seek out this purpose.  Curious enough to question this request but too respectful to refuse it, you gathered your belongings and boarded a Lyrander ship bound for the human kingdoms.  You know not what mysteries this new land will bring, but you possess some strong death magic to carry you through whatever ill may come.
