From the years 43 PK to 13 SKR, Shalana Silvermyst was Esavola of the Eladrin-in-Exile of the Kingdom of Tavanion. In 5 PK, the Orcish Hordes began raiding along the southern coasts of Aldorath at the instigation of Laminok, their God-King. This conflict, later known as the War of the God King, prompted Shalana to call the first Conclave of the Seven Kingdoms in the year now called 0 SKR. This act united the Kingdoms of Aldorath against the Orcish Hordes, thus winning them victory. This loose confederation of Kingdoms continues to this day in one form or another and has largely governed the fortunes of Aldorath ever since.
Although known primarily in the annals of history as a diplomat, Shalana was also an accomplished spear-fighter and wizard. She is known to have commanded her own regiment, the Silver Gryphons, and she is responsible for several key victories by the Seven Kingdoms in the War of the God-King. To this day, the Order of the Silver Gryphon is a knightly order given to those who prove themselves in battle serving the needs of the Kingdom of Tavanion.
