Profile / Statistics
Azkaban is possibly best described as a Celestial Elf, though his childhood was spent among the Forest Elves in and around Leth Dariel. Rescued by clergy as an infant, Azkaban knows little of his past other than his parents were travelling with a group heading North from the Dragon Spine mountains before they were set upon by a band of roving thieves. Despite living away from Ilithi for some time, Azkaban feels oddly at home in Shard and it's surrounds and travels often in an attempt to reconnect with his lost past.
Once he came of age, Azkaban was drawn to the bustle of the Crossings. Upon arriving, he was taken in by a then rag-tag bunch of Elves of many professions, calling themselves the Brothers Fae. Thankful for the support given to him, Azkaban felt a great desire to work in a role where he could serve and support others, and contribute to the rich fabric of city life. Azkaban found his sense of belonging in the then recently reformed Guild of Bards.
When the Brothers Fae migrated North in search of new challenges, Azkaban was torn. He eventually moved with his bothers to Therengia, where he pledged fealty to the Baron and joined the mounted militia, the Therengia Cavalry with his brother Wodie. In times of unrest Azkaban bolsters the brigade of Dragoons with his pipes and drums.
Nowadays, Azkaban has made his home in Therenborough, and continues in his personal quest to contribute to the fabric of Elanthia, while keeping his scimitar ever ready to defend his Guild and province, should the need arise.
Azkaban both turned 100 years old, and gained his 100th circle on 40th day of the 5th month of Uthmor the Giant in the year of the Crystal Snow Hare, 412.
For the faith, for the Fae, for the Guild of Bards, and for the Provence of Therengia.

Cavalry Piper's Bagpipes

Blue and gold plaid covers the bag, with tassels of matching colors tastefully adorning the entire instrument. Embroidered upon the multicolored fabric is the crest of the province of Therengia.

Azkaban owns a modest cottage on Chanter's Retreat on the outskirts of Therenborough. You see a cozy oak-trimmed cottage set with a silver plaque intricately engraved with the crest of the Bards' Guild.
Walls of polished oak and a polished oak floor covered by a black bearskin rug enclose this small room. In one corner lies an overstuffed leather sofa, and near the sofa sits an elegant black lacquered desk with a group of well-worn songbooks and a silver-swirled ebon glass inkwell with a spun glass stopper on it. A low cast iron brazier burns along the far wall with a watercolor painting of a mounted cavalry unit hanging above it. The room holds a mild scent of dry parchment. You also see a stately traveler's trunk with thick brass bands with a polished gaethzen crow on it.
The white horse is sixteen hands high with pink skin and a pure white coat. It has a white mane and tail. It is a gelding with no other markings.
The horse is wearing a blackened chainmail chanfron with silver inlay, a blackened chainmail crinnet adorned with a silver medallion, a blackened chainmail peytrel, a blackened chainmail crupper, a blackened chainmail flanchard with sturdy leather straps, a fleece-lined black leather saddle embossed with the crest of the Therengia Cavalry, a felt saddle pad trimmed with plaid binding, a blue velvet caparison embroidered in silvery thread with the crest of the Bards' Guild, and a cerulean leather bridle trimmed with silvery braid.
This horse was born wild and captured by a Ranger. It has since received the following training: leadrope, saddle, combat, war, jousting, magic, animal, kneel, beg, jumping, spin, prance.
Nelly recently turned up on my doorstep. If you're missing a kitten please let me know! Nelly is a long-haired grey kitten. Her blue-violet eyes look up from a pug-nosed face. While lacking the plush fur of the adult, her deep grey coat still shows signs of its future glory, about a thumb's length with a slight wave. Her nose and her tufted ears are pink, and her paws are tipped with white with an extra claw on each front foot.
This kitten (I assume) was born in the wild, and captured me. She has had no training whatsoever, but seems to keep the house free of mice.
