Keep On The Shadowfell
Name: Vale Sanwrath
Languages: Common, Draconic, Elven
Born in a small village in the north, Vale had a typical rural community upbringing. When her parents noticed her aptitude for caring for wounded and sickly animals, they decided to send her off to the cleric academy in the Elven capital. Vale’s parents, renowned winemakers in the region, doubled their efforts to come up with the steep tuition fees for her schooling.
Upon entering the cleric academy, Vale quickly surpassed her classmates in all subjects save athletics. Chastised by the majority of her peers, Vale found an odd kinship with the small group of Tieflings that studied at the cleric academy, despised for no other reason than their race.
As part of her advanced training, she was sent to a lord’s holding to assess the mysterious ailment afflicting his son. Upon arrival something was amiss, this was not a natural illness. Despite her best efforts, the child passed and Vale was blamed for the death. The lord swore that her life was forfeit and she was left with no choice but to flee the capital and abandon the remainder of her training. Determined to find out what really happened to the lord’s son, she set out to locate a scholar knowledgable in mysterious happenings. Overhearing the name Parle Cranewig, she set out to meet him. Vale agreed to accept Cranewig’s quest in exchange for his expertise in the matter upon her return from Shadowfell.
Meeting the ragtag group that was also on the same quest, Vale took particular interest in the Tiefling, reminding her of the only people who would accept her at academy.
