Solostaran Kanan was born the son of unknown parents of the Qualinesti Royal Family. He married an unknown elf Lady and together they had three children; Porthios Kanan, Gilthanas Kanan, and Lauralanthalasa (Laurana) Kanan. One artifact of note that he had was the Medallion of the Sun for his position as Speaker of the Sun.
Solostaran had wise, aspen leaf green eyes, silver tinged golden hair, lean, and he was known to be tall for an elf. He was considered wise, fair, and slow to anger, but when you do incur his wrath, he is not one to be trifled with. Over his years as Speaker, he became set in his ways on how things should be, so some races viewed him as being callous or hardhearted. He even had some racist tendencies, but was able to tone them down a little bit for his interaction with the group.
