Advent of the Fallen
A fighter of unquestionable devotion and a mysterious past
If not for present circumstances, one might describe Emilran, a tanned human with medium-long brown hair and brown eyes, as “tall, dark, and handsome.” As it is, it’s hard not to look at his body and notice the numerous scrapes, burns, cuts, and other injuries that mark him. Whatever this man has been through, it hasn’t been pleasant. But when you look into his eyes, you can’t help but notice them stare defiantly back at you, as if nothing will keep this man down.
Emilran is a complex man. On the surface, he appears a conceited but open-hearted and confident man who’s not afraid to tell others what he thinks. Crude, lewd, and sometimes half-nude, Emilran thrives on putting at others at unease with his cocky, rough demeanor. However, beneath his eyes there appear to be hidden depths, perhaps a pained conscience, a dark secret, or a hidden reservoir of warmth and empathy. But whatever the case, Emilran’s not letting just anyone in.
In contrast to his companion, Asharan, Emilran speaks frequently of his background in Amn, the country of thieves and merchant cartels. A place where anything and everything is controlled by either the nobility or the street gangs, Amn and its capital of Athkatla shaped Emilran into a man of many talents – or so the self-professed bard claims. Still, it’s not difficult to believe, given Amn’s reputation as a place where the weak die and the strong (or corrupt) thrive. The fact that Emilran has gone on to a successful career outside of the guilds in spite of his humble origins speak to his character.
Watching Emilran and Asharan interact it’s clear that the two aren’t fond of one another. Asharan is quietly derisive of the bard, looking down upon him as a common criminal made worse by his rugged charm. For his part, Emilran thinks of Asharan as a brittle, emotionally crippled coward, who hides behind honor as an excuse to avoid hard choices. However, it is equally clear that both men admire Elyryl, the woman who binds them together. While Asharan speaks little on his relationship with the wizardess, Emilran has made it quite clear the two are lovers.
