Bio:

Character Background: Tolis-Va

Place of Birth: Harken Forest

Parentage: Tolis-Dei (Father – Ranger), Valna (Mother – Priestess of Avandra)

Being of elven heritage, Tolis-Va was always at home in the woodland realm of his people and clan, the Woodsingers. He spent his entire childhood in the clutches of the Harken forest. The trees provided a friend to play with, and enemy to foil told him tales of grand adventure to be found within its branches. This led Tolis-Va to spend vast amounts of time searching the forest for hidden dragon hordes and ruined kingdoms that all lived within the vast glory of his imagination.

As Tolis-Va grew, his imagination grew into ambition and stalwart dreams of leaving his tiny realm on a grand adventure like his parents before him. Tolis-Va’s father, Tolis-Dei was a ranger of small renown gained in the Bloodspear Wars. His mother, Valna, was a priestess of Avandra who would preach and give aid to travelers and adventures traveling the Kings road to Fallcrest. Tolis-Va was presented a choice once he reached maturity, to become a protector of the wood like his father, or a practitioner of the divine like his mother. Being that he lived many grand adventures in his mind as a child, Tolis-Va had trained himself in the arts of hunting and tracking and seemed more suited to following in the footsteps of his father.

Tolis-Va and his father would spend days and weeks in the wilds of Harken forest, following the tracks of deer and other prey, listening to the sweet music of the wind in the trees, living off of the land when prey was unattainable. On one such outing, Tolis-Dei brought along a bundle wrapped in blankets and let Tolis-Va to a small spring near the center of the wood. There, Tolis-Dei unrolled his bundle and produced 4 sticks about three feet in length. He handed two of the sticks to Tolis-Va and showed them how to properly hold them. Realizing what he was to learn, Tolis-Va began to re-enact the great duels he would have with the branches in his younger days and commenced to unleash a flurry of uncoordinated strikes at his father. Tolis-Dei, foreseeing this beginning, parried every blow, every thrust, with little effort and emotion. Once Tolis-Va tired and his flurry died down, Tolis-Dei pressed the attack and placed more than a few bruises on the body of Tolis-Va.

For the next several months, Tolis-Dei trained his son in the use of two blades. He showed Tolis-Va how to wield them effectively and how to move with them. Tolis-Dei showed his son how to make the blades an extension of his own arms. Soon Tolis-Va became as competent with his new skills of the blade as he was in the wild. He training would now move into his mothers care. Valna understood that for Tolis-Va to survive on any adventure, he would need to learn and understand the ways of the world beyond the wood. He would need to learn how to interact with other races, life in cities and villages and a general knowledge of commerce. Valna made it a habit to take Tolis-Va with her to the Shrine of Avandra along the king’s road and have him speak to travelers and adventures alike.

On one such outing, a friend of Valna arrived at the shrine on one of his frequent visits to Fallcrest. The man was an older gentleman of about 50 and a learned man of the ways of the world. His name was Douven Staul and had spent some time speaking to Valna about both the Harken Forest and the Woodsinger Clan. Douven claimed it was for some book he was writing on the area, and the conversations had lead to a friendship Valna and members of the Woodsinger clan. Seeing this as a golden opportunity, Valna asked Douven if he would allow Tolis-Va to accompany him in his travels and teach him about the Nentir Vale and its inhabitants.

Tolis-Va had a very limited knowledge of the inhabitants of the Nentir Vale and had met only a few of the other races, humans mostly, that had traveled the king’s road or come to the Harken Forest to trade with his kin. His eyes lit up with the prospect of life outside the forest for a while. He would finally get the chance to see Fallcrest and, Avandra willing, Winterhaven and beyond. Douven agreed and would take Tolis-Va under his tutelage on his next passing. This would allow Tolis-Va to gather his things and say good bye to his family and friends.

A few weeks later, Douven came through on his promise and passed through the Shrine of Avandra on his way to Fallcrest. Tolis-Va, having been packed for the journey since their last encounter, was both excited and saddened with his departure. He promised his mother and father that he would send word upon his arrival to let them know he was safe and the he would keep a journal of his days so that he could share it with them when he returned.

During the days and weeks of his study, Tolis-Va showed an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. He questioned Douven about everything from local history to the bread maker in the market and his family. Tolis-Va also met a number of the other races, including Halflings, Tieflings and even a Dragonborn. With each passing day, his confidence and curiosity grew. Douven even brought Tolis-Va on some of his excursions into the wild to study the ancient ruins that dotted the realm after the Bloodspear War. These studies allowed Tolis-Va to ply his trade in tracking and foraging in setting other than in the forests. Douven showed him how to recognize different plant species as well as how to gain a sense of direction when there is no sun to guide you.

Tolis-Va spent many months learning from Douven and was saddened when the time came to leave for home. When he did return, his quest for adventure and excitement was only enhanced by what he had learned outside of his realm. He would frequently venture out with his father on quests to root out goblinoids who would venture into the Harken Forest. Tolis-Va would also accompany his mother to the Shrine of Avandra and hire himself as muscle on trips to Fallcrest.

After many months, Tolis-Va found himself in Fallcrest only to learn that Douven had gone missing. Disheartened by the news, Tolis-Va vowed to search for his mentor with the help of some friends he met along the way (PC’s) as Douven also meant as much to them as to Tolis-Va.
