Ulhar’s childhood was a blessed one, Born into a noble family he had no wants for anything. His father was a well respected member of the oligarchy that ruled his province. His people kept to themselves, caring for their own as they saw fit, with little to no contact with the outside world.
It became apparent at a young age that Ulhar, then called Valahir Xithul, had a supreme intellect and a penchant for the magical arts. His father, Salonious, intent on a securing a future of prominence and power for his son, sought out the wizard of most renown in the area to apprentice his son to. An instant bond was formed and soon Valahir was spending more and more time immersed in his magical studies and less and less time with his father schmoozing with the nobility.
Before long, Valahir was spending one hundred percent of his time with his mentor, _________. His trips home became more infrequent, though his father continually pressed him to return to the fold. While it wasn’t out of spite or hate that Valahir stayed away, so single minded was his focus on his studies that he had no room for any thing else.
Finally, however, it became time to return home. Valahir’s mentor had said he had taught him all that he could and he should now apply himself to real life experiences. Valahir returned to his father’s house, only to find his city in ruins! The small gathering of survivors was grouped with in one of the cities more stable structures. Asking for information, he found out that a black dragon was responsible for the slaughter, fearing the Sun Elves’ power.
Valahir was shocked to silence. Perhaps, he thought, this would be a good and noble use of the powers bestowed upon him. He decided to return to his mentor to seek advice and knowledge about his new nemesis.
Upon his return, he and his mentor set to work studying. ___________ was a surprising wealth of knowledge on the subject of dragons, and soon revealed his inner knowledge of the dragon god Bahamut. Valahir learned that all dragons are not evil, and instead there are many to be praised and deserve worship. Seeking such aid Valahir began praying to Bahamut beseeching his aid and asking for his selecting to help him help others. Bahamut was more than ready to accept, seeking all powerful and dedicated peoples who are committed to his cause.
Soon Bahamut revealed himself to Valahir in a dream and told him that he had indeed been chosen to receive his gift. Now, after being baptized anew by Bahamut, Vlahir takes a new name, Ulhar Levathix, and seeks to aid those who cannot help themselves.
