Aedem Fyrsh, an Elven Pirate. Captain of the Black Star. War Mage, has an owl familiar.
Originally from Ratha. Was training to become a Cleric of Lemicus. Was kidnapped, along with his mother, by the pirate Saller. His mother died shortly thereafter. Later led a mutiny aboard ship, killing Saller with the help of Syeran. Spared the life of Allum, Saller's navigator.
The Red Sash Pirates
As captain of the Black Star, Aedem was generally a solo operator. At some point, though, he joined the Red Sash pirates. His advancement has been somewhat frustrated, however, by the fact that he is an elf in an organization in which the upper ranks are historically exclusively occupied by humans.
As part of the Red Sash, Aedem has been responsible for attacks throughout Qi. In these attacks, books and other papers have often been stolen. Documents taken include: military histories from Tusfaov on M'riss/Mer'Kresh; Rathan birth records.
There are rumors that Aedem is the son of Misdilev Allvar. This is reinforced by translations of a captain's log in which a captive held by Saller is referred to as 'Adam Allvarson'. The captain's log can be found in Ilerthan's manor on Aesry.
It is possible that Aedem does not know for certain who is father is, either. Under his direction, pirates have raided a number of stores of records, possibly looking for records of his birth. Among those stole include: Sshoi-sson Palace's birth records from 262-264 AV; a manuscript about the Menhir Stones of Aesry; and the military histories of Mer'Kresh.
