Aradyll of Mithrendain

Aradyll was born in the Autumn City. Born into a noble family, he was trained from a young age to eventually take lead as a commander of the Eladrin army. An exemplar of Eladrin traditions, Aradyll mixes his study of swordplay and tactics with studies of history, literature, and philosophy. He is also a talented poet, musician, and artist. He is a connoisseur of fine food and drink, and always dresses in the latest styles of the nobility.

Familiar with the Outer World, one of his most harrowing experiences was when he was a junior commander-in-training out on patrol with a spire of soldiers. He and a few of the younger members were separated from the rest of the detachment, and stumbled across a band of goblins that were attacking a group of dwarves from Hammerfast. Aradyll was able to marshall the green troops under his command and drive back the goblins, earning him the respect of both Eladrin and Dwarves. However, Aradyll has always suspected that his Swordcaptain, Kalamar, set him up to become separated in an attempt to embarass or even eliminate him.

Recently, he left Mithrendain because the sudden disappearance of his siste, Eriele, who was an accomplished wizard. He suspects that outside forces, possibly conspiring with darker elements inside Mithrendain itself was responsible. The city leaders seem oddly uncoorporative with his isistence that they lead a search party for her. Thus, he has set off from the city to locate her himself.

It was not long before he learned of the intriguing developments in the Underdark. After making a deal with some shady individuals in order to secure safe travel, Aradyll has arrived in the Seven Pillared Hall just in time to hear about the brave deeds that have been accomplished in the Thunderspire Mountains.

Beyond his immediate goals of locating his sister, he hopes that his travels will also give him the experience and knowledge necessary to write the most comprehensive treatise on combat ever. His dream is to master the secrets of the Feywild and one day become immortalized like in the epics of old.
