Bio:

Raised in the Lhazaar Principalities Din was raised to never reveal to anyone his true nature and he succeeded in this for the main portion of his youth. He became a pirate and came to command his own ship. However during a raid a merchant ship he and his crew were ambushed by a group of House Thuranni Shadow Killers, deadly fighters who posses the mark of shadow, and their leader Ashen d’Thuranni. He was not however killed and was instead tortured and forced to wear an obsidian ring around his neck which compelled him to obey the Shadow Killers commands. They had somehow found out about his true origins as a changeling and sought to use him to further their abilities to gather intelligence. After several years of subjugation he finally sought a final solution and gave part of his soul to a dark lord of the Shadowfell in exchange for the power to escape his captors. He escaped and using his natural talents has evaded Ashen for years. His nature changed after the loss of a portion of his soul and he became a merciless killer using his connection to the shadowfell to become a peerless assassin. He has acquired a small fortune in magical items to assist him in his endeavors. He feels his skills are now great enough for him to kill Ashen d’Thuranni and he always listens for information on Ashens whereabouts.

Character Flaw: As a result of losing a portion of his soul Din has become colder and more merciless, killing anyone who gets in the way of his freedom. He does not play well with others. Although this has lessened recently as he has ragained some of his soul (explained below).

Durring the Last War: He disguised himself as various war couriers and gathered intelligence on the nations he served. As much as a way to search for information on Ashen, as it was a habit to gather information.

Heroic Action: After the war he was sought by a powerful magician, Lady Ilvasiel, because of his connection to the shadowfell. She had been the target of a dark lord from the Shadowfell plain and was seeking to slay him. She had also learned in studying the demon that it was the one who Din had given a portion of his soul to. Agreeing to assist her and in the process hoping to regain the lost portion of his soul they hunted down and killed the demon. His connection to the shadowfell somehow still remained but with his soul being returned to him his control ever the shadows has greatly increased. He can only assume because his soul spent so much time in the shadowfell it is now connected to it. He has also gained the ability to form the souls of the dead into crystaly which further enhance his powers, another side affect of his transformed soul. He still seeks information on Ashen but has a new powerful ally, Lady Ilvasiel, who he has struck up a tenuous friendship with.

Motivation: Searching for A’shen d’Thuranni. Also whenever Lady Ilvasiel, the only person he has come to trust, needs assistance he is always there to help.

NPC’s: Lady Ilvasiel – his only friend and contact for gathering information on Ashen d’Thuranni. Knowing that magical means are often more effective than physical means of information gathering. Ashen d’Thuranni (rival) – The Shadow Killer who captured and subjugated Din. Din has recently discovered that Ashen and his loyal Shadow Killers were exiled from house Thuranni well before he came after Din, who Din was really gathering intel for during his imprisonment remains unknown to him.

Knowledge of other NPC: While disguised as a human warrior by the name of Ferric Fireheart he assisted a band of merenaries after the Last War. There he met freakachu, not by any means friends but he was impressed by his skills as a rogue. He has since changed his identity and its very doubtful that he’ll be recognized by Freakachu.

As a changling he worships The Traveler, one of the dark six who has the domains of trickery and change.
