-Ornithel Mestenoux was born into a rich Eladrin ​family, the Mestenoux fishing barons of the coastal city of [[gaeleth:​places:​Teras]]. He was raised in the comfort of his family'​s seaside manor, spending many days playing with his siblings and practicing his innate arcane spellcraft, a trait shared among all Eladrin ​and one with which he showed great aptitude. Later in his life he studied diligently for many years at the arcane academy of [[gaeleth:​places:​Lok Magius]], taking particular interest in the school of conjuration. He hoped to use the schools teachings to unravel the mysteries of the multiverse. After faithfully serving the academy'​s interests for over 30 years, he was abruptly expelled after committing an egregious misdeed. Ornithel was well known throughout the academy for his irreverent and contumacious attitudes about the academy'​s laws around the the concealment of information thought to be too dangerous to study, and much too dangerous for the wider masses to ever be aware of. It was never the less shocking to the academy staff when it was discovered that he had abused magic in order to infiltrate the Great Library of Lok Magius in an attempt to steal a number of forbidden tomes. Worse yet, it was determined that he not only intended to study said tomes, but potentially to distribute the information freely. He was promptly stripped of his title of Aetherist and banned from the premises and services of the academy and all associated institutions. To make matters worse, he was subsequently disowned from his family for the humiliation he brought to their name. It was after this abasement that Ornithel decided to abandon his former name and remake himself. He adopted a childhood nickname, Hiko, as his new name, and he swore that he would become more powerful than any academy mage, despite the abandonment of his family and peers. It was months after this resolution that he met the Kenku slave Chimes. Feeling great disgust for the practice of slavery, and pity for the poor Kenku girl, he decided to free her from her captors, inadvertently making a life-long friend in the process. The two together formed what would eventually be known as the Black Feather Troupe, and he adopted the persona of Hiko the Illustrious,​ a traveling illusionist. He feared that his true passion of conjuration would not bring as much amusement to the common folk of Rakore. They would later add an acrobat to their party of performers, a Changeling girl named Toox. The three would become close friends, traveling Rakore and performing for coin, but Hiko would long to once again study the arcane, for he had not forgotten the promise that he made to himself.+Ornithel Mestenoux was born into a rich High Elf family, the Mestenoux fishing barons of the coastal city of [[gaeleth:​places:​Teras]].
