Varioth is the third son of an impoverished eladrin nobleman. His father and extended family fled the Feywild for some reason.
Despite being basically dispossessed, the family continues to conduct themselves as if they were nobility. This means for the men there are basically only a few avenues of proper aspirations: wizardry, warcraft, and study. But selling their talents for coin would be gauche. When a father has multiple sons, they are directed towards one of these, each son to a different path.
The family gets by, primarily because of the cloth-making and embroidery skills of the women. They produce excellent work, but it takes a long time to create these works.
As a result, the family can generally be considered “impoverished nobility”.
Varioth’s hot-headed oldest brother (Calaar) had many arguments with their father before leaving to seek greater power… elsewhere. Anywhere.
His second brother (Airion), a warrior of some expertise, became a member of the Emerald League like Varioth and his brother. However, he disappeared while on an expedition for the League.
Varioth is the scholar amongst the three brothers. When his brother disappeared, he set out to bring his brother back to the family.
THE EMERALD LEAGUE
Varioth is a member of the Emerald League.
The Emerald League is a loose organization of elven, half-elven, and eladrin scholars, thinkers, and activists. League members include philosophers, arcane researchers, historians, archaeologists and treasure seekers, itinerant teachers and scholars, et cetera. Some settlements might house multiple members of the League, while many other members live scattered about and keep in touch with each other through physical and magical correspondence.
The league was founded about a century ago by a group of noble-minded scholars, in order to seek out and share knowledge with each other, to ensure that no member of the group would become destitute, and to spread knowledge in general. In some villages, the arrival of a traveling member of the League for a season is the only opportunity for its youth to obtain any sort of higher education. And members know that they can rely on the others for a place to stay, funds to help carry out their research, or emergency support in times of trouble.
Physically, Varioth has a typical build for an eladrin, with somewhat rare black hair, and violet eyes.
