Raised by his 2 older twin sisters, both members of the town guard as well, his family has lived here for many generations, some even say there is Viridian ancestry flowing through his veins.
Elial has always had a pioneering spirit, and has shown that he is willing to take risks for the good of others, as well as for personal gain. he has always been concerned with having enough to get by, and has proven that hard work will give the rewards he seeks. He was born in his family home, at midnight exactly, and has the benefit of increased night vision, but suffers from decreased magical prowess during the time around high noon. A goose laid a golden egg when he was born. the egg has long since been lost, sold, etc.
His twin sisters have friends and enemies from their many years on the city watch, and between them have 3 jilted ex lovers.
Elial’s youth is when he learned the family trade, being on the city watch, as his baby sitting was just that, doing patrols, and cleaning up from an early age. he proved he was proficient and efficient at it and have never left or sought another profession. He had an encounter with the elves to the north, befriending a couple of them ??
His adolescence proved to be wonderful in that he save the life of a neighbor (Sadye Weissler) who taught him the finer arts of being an adept, who had been poisoned (accidentally?). Not long after saving Sadye though, Elial lost his first and up to this time, his only pet Fromme, who suffered a very painful death (possible poison? torture?). It was very shortly after this, that Elial got Cody, the dog familiar he has to this day.
When Elial grew into adulthood, he inherited an old abandoned mine (empty and mined out or just abandoned but still viable?), maybe 5 years ago, that is possibly haunted by a ghost (real or fake?)
Elial’s most valuable person is his deity and he has a strong faith
his most valuable thing is the letter deeding him the mine, but he doesn’t hold much attachment to it, at least not yet.
his most valuable abstract would be the power he wields as a sergeant in the city watch, which is a fairly strong belief and driving force in his life
Elial is aloof in some ways, average at best compared to most people, humorous more so than most people, and extremely pious when compared to a majority of people.
he is also considered lazy by some but in comparison is probably not as lazy as most. he is egotistical, but again less than most, and is probably considered to be a trivial liar, but who isnt.
Elial was promoted from Sergeant to Captain and put in charge of the new investigative unit of the Watch as a result of his involvement in the arrest, conviction, and execution of Garrish Kochilar.
