Baranith Dragonsoul

Elven Cleric


First appearance in Arc 1, Episode 16

HISTORY & BACKSTORY

By malicious magical interference, Baranith is unaware of her origins, her home, or her unique lineage. She has no memory of her family, elves of a clan called Dragonsoul, who possess a rare and coveted intrinsic capacity to speak with dragons. She has no memory of being stolen from her home to be trained and exploited in Esterholt for her familial skill. She has no memory of her brother; only a clue, a note she held tightly in her hand on the morning she awoke in Durnhollow that read "Sister, find me. Barawen."

In Baranith's eyes, she is a lost nomad of Theria. Having been purchased by a crook known as Blackteeth, she began this transient life as a slave to him and a hoard of thugs, thieves and killers. She was owned for 7 years. Most days were uneventful and Baranith was left to work, untouched. But during long stretches of travel when there was no food or ale or gold to be looted, the men grew restless and took to assaulting her for their entertainment. One evening, while camped just down the road from Brightport, one such attack was interrupted when the camp itself was raided and Blackteeth and all his men were killed.

Through a series of accidents and risks she has found herself in the company of a pack of skilled adventurers. Finally free of chains and abuse, but without a place or family to return to, Baranith has reluctantly made a home among her companions and a tiefling, her protector, Vallus Grimnas. Together, they continue to carve a new future.

Compassionate to her core, she finds solace in healing wounded creatures and righting the wrongs in her world. But on the edge of a war quickly traveling toward the east of Theria, Baranith struggles with the decision of where to focus her energy: rescue and defend the enslaved and oppressed, or abandon her companions and Vallus to travel the land of Theria and find her true identity and her brother.


APPEARANCE AND PERSONALITY

Brunette hair and very Elven features. Baranith is loyal to her friends and very capable of standing up for herself.
