Scion of Vadalis

Scion of Vadalis

Prerequisites: Mark of Handling, Membership in House Vadalis

   The humans of Vadalis are true masters of beasts.  All in Khorvaire recognize the value of their magebred mounts and livestock.  Growing up amidst breeding farms and animals has given you a special affinity for nature.  You have always had a way with the natural creatures of the earth and this ability was only compounded with your dragonmark.

   Yet there was something in the farming lifestyle that felt unfulfilled.  You longed to see more of the world.  So, you set out into the world to seek your fortune.  Did your elders approve of your departure or did they pressure you to stay and help breed the animals with the rest of your kin?  Whatever your deeds, you are the future of House Vadalis and you carry the power of the Mark of Handling wherever you go.  Perhaps you will use its powers in ways others can’t even imagine.
