Appearance Aurael is a striking figure, being very tall for an elf (a drow especially). Standing at a hair’s breadth shy of six feet, his tell-tale stars-and-midnight skin and long silver hair betray his heritage as much as his pointed ears and silver eyes do. He is as thin and graceful as his kind, still delicately boned and slender despite having mixed blood (though he does have a strangely unearthly quality that most other half-drow do not). He always seems bemused, and will never be seen outside of his rather long black cloak. He appears young for an elf, being only one-hundred and thirty-two, though he carries himself as if he is privileged with great knowledge and smug to have it.
Personality It is hard to know who Aurael truly is. One day he may be noble and honest, pure of heart and deed with no thought to himself… and the next may have murdered a family of six in cold blood for the sheer enjoyment of it. He refuses to speak of himself and is a master of subtleties and innuendo, allowing him to subvert a conversation without giving away any information. Acting in both merciless bloodthirst and honorable sacrifice in equal measure, he is a difficult man to understand and impossible to fathom.
Past History Aurael was born to a clan of surface-dwelling drow to a traveling Loremaster and the Captain of the Guard. During his adolescence, a war with a neighboring drow clan forced them to abandon their home and flee into the High Wood, where they have been granted sanctuary. Shortly thereafter, Aurael left to study on his own, training to become a rogue worth absolute obscurity and an assassin worth fearing for its legend alone.
Recent History Aurael for some time has been working in an area in Zhentarim control as a rogue/detective for-hire. What his true mission is and who he is working for is a complete mystery, though he does seem to be interested in gaining a little help from some adventurers looking to earn some gold…
