Cleric of Xynos
Soldier of Korsth
Date of Birth: Vor the 15th of 1300 Avard.
Current Status: Summer, 1331 Avard. Taryn has been recruited by the half-dragon Xzaxilathalanus to help pursue the ancient artifact known as Al Mudim.
Taryn's skin is a light, sun-touched color. He's a half-elf with slightly pointed ears and little facial hair, about 30 years of age, with long auburn hair tied back in a clasp. His eyes are powerful iron-gray in color, large, and missing little, constantly shifting, assessing, and looking. He tends to wear travel-stained leathers and moves with confidence and power. Taryn tends to wear leathers and tough travel boots, along with a light pack, a longsword, and a longbow.
The Dragon Lord Korsth forged for Taryn two items of blood-red mithril – a mail shirt and a longsword. Both items can ignite in flames on command, either separately or together. The shirt protects Taryn from fire, as well as his clothing and possessions.
As'shranas: this ring was named As'shranas by Tylanion of the House of Elm, and perhaps came from the horde of Killashandrastatia. It was found in a vellum envelope with As'shranas' name on it in the ruins of Tymarell, in a secret compartment in a hidden room. The ring is made of gold, with kite shields in an alternating point-crown pattern. The ring protects the wearer with an invisible force shield that glows when struck by weapons.
Hras'Halas: this ring was named Hras'Halas by Tylanion of the House of Elm, and perhaps came from the horde of Killashandrastatia. It was found in a vellum envelope with Hras'Halas' name on it in the ruins of Tymarell, in a secret compartment in a hidden room. The ring is made of silver and gold intertwined into a miniature torc. The ring delivers shooting stars against a target, harming if not killing the target.
Korstholansthurast is the leader of the warriors and defenders of the Dragon Nation. A militant lord, Korsth has drawn to his banner many different peoples for a variety of reasons: some hate the Inquisition, some worship the dragons, many sympathize with those who would stand for freedom, and others were merely locals whom have found a calling. Taryn found a calling both in the Dragon Nation of Wuron Sfa, and in being a cleric of the Dragon God Xynosalionisis.
Korsth and many of the other dragon lords were having difficulties, finding themselves rulers of non-dragons, and wondering how best to rule them, and how best to preserve their new-found nation – and their species. The ruler of the Dragon Nation still communicates with the intelligence networks in Rakore, where an ancient legend had come to life; in the ruins of Tymarell in Rakore, a dragon co-ruled with dwarves and men. Taryn was sent to Rakore to investigate the ruins of Tymarell, and gather whatever other information he could about dragons in Rakore.
While there, he met a Rakoran adventurer named Sammeth Knar that helped him explore the ruins of Tymarell just prior to the War of the Four Winds. Together, they explored deeply into the ruins, and discovered much about the dragon Killashandrastatia, and how the city-state of Tymarell was ruled. Sammeth and Taryn helped evacuate the people of Takanal into the ruins of Tymarell, and down into the ruins of Daggoneth – upon which Tymarell was built.
Taryn is a man of patriotism to the Dragon Nations, and devotion to Xynos – but neither to more of an extent than his devotion to the land. Taryn is the quintessential medieval conservationist; he believes in Nature, knowledge, and nastiness to anyone with an evil bent towards either.
