Candor was born of auspicious parents, his father a Councilor of means and authority, his mother an oracle of the High Elven ancestors. In the long years of Elven child hood, his tutors were excellent, to the standards of the court. (Education; Knowledge: Nobility; Status: High Born).
When he reached adolescence, Candor was sent to the forest temple-city of the Elven gods, to study. Instead, he spent all the time he could at the temple of Wee Jas, Goddess of Death, Knowledge and Magic. He took every lesson that he was permitted in the matters arcane. [Knowledge: Arcana, Religion, History).
Forbidden to deviate from his assigned studies by his disapproving father, Candor took to studying in secret. His mother secretly funded his illicit purchases of arcane scraps. Trial and error were his teachers, and sheer will to power. When he was found-out, Candor chose to leave rather than give up his new art. He set off in search of adventurer as a Sorceror. (Concentration, Spellcraft, Bonus Language: Draconic).
When the party made their vow together, Candor chose to stay with those of his fellows who remained, and so went forth with the Human cavalier, Lina Sedgewick, and Caladhiel, Wood Elven Cleric of Pelor. The smaller party distinguished itself in driving-off the bandits who had plagued a farming community, riding aggressively against the raiding parties until their ringleaders were caught and hung by the local Bailiff. (Reputation: Protector +1, Reward 500gp)
At the Battle of Owen’s Field, a great force of Humans, Elves and Halflings met to hold back a tidal wave of orc-kind washing out of the Sand Wastes. The party rode to the battle as the outcome was very much in the balance. Candor wisely took himself to the right flank, and was ready when Orc shaman blasted the ranks – he immolated one and broke another in a sorcerous duel before his allies rallied and drove them off. (Bonus Combat Spell, Bonus Magic Item).
In search of secrets of the deep arcane, Candor visited one of the fabled black libraries – fortress-prisons wherein the most perilous magical secrets are locked-away. What he confronted in the lightless depths remains a mystery to all save Candor – suffice to say that he returned sane and whole.
