The son of Tobian Willowgreen, Arawn was born in Sylvasia and spent most of his young life at the palace of the king. Although his family is not itself royalty, his father Tobian was, and remains, a counselor and ambassador for the king of Red Leaf Forest. As he grew older Arawn therefore traveled through much of Ethior on quests with his father, settling for a time in Dorien just as the forces of Thomas Merewood were growing.
There Arawn met and soon fell in love with Llyr Dorien, the daughter to Baron Gwydion III and heir to the throne of Turgon. This the Baron accepted well, having much respect for the people of Red Leaf and the character of Arawn himself. Before the two could be wed, however, Thomas’ armies approached the western regions. Arawn would soon join his father and the Baron at Mallist and there lose his life.
