A humble beginning
Aelaldric was born in the Elven Valley and was welcomed into the world by loving parents. The elves of the valley live simply - their society bares no specific vocations or rigid hierarchy. All of the adult elves contribute to providing food, shelter and security while the young are allowed to spend most of their days playing and exploring. So it was that Aelaldric grew up without any specific direction in life. He was not the largest, fastest, or even the smartest boy amongst his friends, and he often found himself envious of the others. As he grew older and became attracted to some of the females in the valley, it was clear that there was no reciprocation. While he was attractive, as any elf is likely to be, his other deficits aforementioned found him wanting for a mate. The females paired up, one by one, with the other boys who were bigger, faster, smarter, and more humorous. When it became evident that he would be alone, at least for the foreseeable future, Aelaldric set out from the valley to seek a new life. His departure was all smiles, hugs, well-wishing and encouragement, but for him it was insincere. As soon as his back was turned, he set a scowl on his face and carried within him a deep resentment for his people. He was determined to make a name for himself in the wider world, return as an renowned individual and show all of the women that they were wrong to pass him over. Aelaldric spent a great deal in time in the city of Seringale, learning about the people, economy, and different vocations. Having spent time considering his path, he decided that he would join the paladin guild. From the moment he joined, he fantasized about the looks on the faces of his friends as he rode into the valley on the back of a magnificent steed, sunlight gleaming off of his full plate armor. He would smile down at them, nodding as the women swoon and the men watch him with jealousy plain upon their faces. If Aelaldric had been more attentive to his studies, he may have known that it is dangerous for a paladin to carry resentment, anger, and jealousy in their hearts. There are many dangers that exist in the world and a paladin must have a will of steel, lest one of those dangers take advantage of his weakness of mind. Such a danger was destined to find Aelaldric and change his course forever.


There is something very sinister about the elf you see before you. He is tall, muscular, fair skinned, and has perfectly smooth skin. He has long, blonde hair that is tied in a tight braid. His eyes, however, are far from what one would expect from a typical elf. His irises are red and his sclera are bloodshot. They are surrounded with deep purple and his brow is angled in a scowl. His thin lips are pulled up in a slight sneer. He shifts uneasily from foot to foot, looking about as if he is seeking something - perhaps keeping an eye out for predator or prey. Only he knows.

  2. I loved this character. Your RP was fantastic and actually had me laughing at times when you (the demon) would bash Aelaldric (the host). Fantastic character. Cheers to you.

      1. Thanks for setting up that awesome story arc, Aelaldric - it was really great fun. Sorry I could not stay longer to enjoy it.

          Thanks to everybody who interacted with this character. He was a lot of fun to play. Demon elf DK is basically playing AR on hard mode. They are so squishy and the extra wrath vuln is a pain.

          I hadn’t seen anybody really play a demon elf before and wasn’t aware of anybody leveling one from 15-50. It’s fun to be first!

          I’m a big Serra fanboy. I read all of her stories, logs, backgrounds - everything. When I was coming up with the idea to play this character I read the demon elf and Acadia helpfiles and knew right away it could tie into Serra’s journey very well. Thanks for letting me join your epic tale!

          I also sort of felt like AR needed an evil character. When I make a guy I don’t just think of what I want to play but I think “what does AR need?”. After not really seeing any evils around for a long time (other than Dogran) I knew that was a hole that could be filled.

          If he was a jerk to any of you in game it was definitely just IC to your character. There isn’t a single player I don’t like. You guys are all great.

            Loved this character heaps. And super glad I don't try and work out who plays who. This was a cool surprise to see it was you Kalist. Great, great job :)
