  • Born to a small aarakocra colony in the southern Sword Mountains, though you have no memory of this.
  • According to Master Dumak, he was in those mountains when he saw the red dragon attack. He arrived too late to stop it, but found you huddled under some brush on the outskirts of the village, still quite young. He took you with him back to Waterdeep.
  • As there was no way to raise a child in the Monastery of the Sun, he asked a friend, Denabria Faez of the Harpers, to raise you. She and her wife Zavelinda brought you up in their inn, the Dusken Glade Inn.
  • As you hit adolescence, Master Dumak took you in for training as a monk, teaching you his own sword-monk disciplines.
  • You have been around Harpers all your life, so it was only natural that you should become one, which Denabria gave you the chance to do recently.

Important Individuals

Dusken Glade Inn

Denabria Faez
Mom + Harper Handler
Denabria has raised you for as long as you can remember. She has provided a roof over your head and food on your plate, and lavished you with as much affection as you felt comfortable receiving. She is always there with a laugh and a kiss on the head, and has always been your first protector and advocate. You have become a Harper under her guidance.
Denabria's ladywife, and your other mother, it was Zavelinda who first taught you beginning martial arts techniques, before Master Dumak decided that you were mature enough to begin his training regimen. She is the carefree one, the contrast to Denabria's careful management, and you know that she is wildly proud of your developing martial talents.


Master Dumak
Swordmonk Master
Master Dumak is an incredibly skilled sword-monk, wielding a strange, silver blade that gleams like quicksilver when he uses it. His teaching style is caustic and severe, quick to belittle your failures and stingy with praise, although you've known him long enough to be able to recognize when he is proud of your progress. He is very protective of you, although he would never step in to fight your battles for you. He has a dry sense of humor that you're fairly certain only you, Zavelinda, and Abbot Alger ever witness.
Abbot Alger of Amanautor
Abbot of the Monastery of the Sun
Distant but kind, even Master Dumak treats Abbot Alger with respect and deference. The abbot has always kept his distance to some degree, although as you've gotten older you suspect it's simply out of respect for Master Dumak: a student should have a single authority, and Abbot Alger is very observant of such boundaries. It isn't uncommon to find the Abbot out and about in the neighborhood where you live (Trades Point North), getting his hands dirty helping the locals out in some way or another.
Lessemas of Lathander
Sun Soul Adept
A senior monk at the monastery, Lessemas is quiet and contemplative, always rising before the dawn (along with the other Lathandrite monks). He prefers the space to work in the courtyard outside the monastery proper. He has acted as something of a big brother to you during your time, helping to explain certain things that Master Dumak is too impatient to bother with, or things that the monastery expects you to adhere to that are confusing.

The Stationers' Guild

Master Ilvaro Dunaer
Master in the Stationers' Guild
Your master in the Stationers' Guild is a no-nonsense man who was somewhat hesitant to take you on as an apprentice. Your diligence at work has won him over, though he does nothing to protect you from the rude stares and whispers of the rest of the guild.

The Copper Dragon

Young Adult Copper Dragon
Though old enough to have accumulated a respectable horde for himself (mostly because he's an avid orc-hunter), Tantialtannus has only just achieved adulthood as a copper dragon. Clarc and Heinrich worked with Zavelinda to help stop the Griffins from selling the information on where to find Tantialtannus's hoard to the Zhentarim, who are always after an easy coin. Tantialtannus's lair is located just north of Waterdeep, in the foothills of the Sword Mountains. As far as he's concerned, you're welcome anytime, especially if you bring your instruments! (He does so love music. And beer. He is also fond of beer.)
