Description: Salavarin is a young wood elf with a strong but lean build. Most of his nose is gone, severely scarred from an injury that occured when he was an infant. He rarely smiles. He wears blue clothing and studded leather armor (blue leather, copper-plated steel studs). His two-bladed sword bears elven runes on all four blade faces, and his belt is a thickly folded piece of scarlet elven-made cloth.
History and Personality: Salavarin was born in the northern realm of wood elves. When yuan-ti began their attacks on the elven lands, Salavarin's village was slaughtered. Salavarin was found by scouts from a nearby village, pressed between the fallen bodies of his parents; his nose had been almost completely severed by his father's two-bladed sword when it fell from the man's dying hands. The neighboring elves took him in along with the other surviving elven orphan. Now the only heirlooms Salavarin has is his father's sword and a long swatch of his mother's cloak. Raised by his neighbors, he grew up hating the yuan-ti who slaughtered his village and loathing his own disfigurement. He trained mercilessly with his father's weapon, and eventually traveled southward to the city of ghosts in hopes of finding the tree that held the souls of his parents.
Salavarin lives only to find the ghosts of his parents and to kill yuan-ti. He knows that his father's sword has some hidden magical power, but it will not reveal itself until he is worthy, and until that time it appears to be nothing more than a masterwork two-bladed sword.
Ghostwalk connection: Salavarin is from the beseiged elven homeland in the setting.
