A lesser government official in the town of Payon, Vorast is pretty much forced by his job to be cheerful and helpful with everyone he meets, human or otherwise. "Cheerful and helpful" does not mean "trusting" - he remains inwardly distrustful of unproven humans. He is fascinated by the effortless grace of alfar, instinctively trusting of most svartalfar, and will always go out of his way to help his fellow Furred of any subrace.

Biography

Character Age: 19
Birthplace: Veins
Occupation: Customs Official

Vorast was born on a cattle ranch between Veins and Rachel, to a breeding-pair he never got to know. He was sold at auction as a kit to a traveling merchant who he also never got to know. Said traveling merchant was ambushed on his way back to Veins by a roving Atroce. The merchant, untrained in the ways of combat, was slain instantly.

As the Atroce set down to consume its meal of merchant and supplies, it was set upon by a hunting party of svartalfar. Said hunting party - a man, his wife and two children - had ventured out from the portal in Veins specifically to hunt the giant Atroce wolves for sport. The wolf, caught by surprise, dropped quickly.

The man began skinning the dead wolf for its pelt, aided by his wife; the two children scanned the wreckage of the merchant's cart for recoverable supplies or survivors. They found one: a tiny Ailouros kit, swathed in blankets and blinking up at the dark-skinned children from its resting place in the wreck of the cart. At their mother's insistance, they brought the kit with them back to Svartalfheim.

Vorast was adopted by Tavar Elandor and his wife Sidhe, and raised alongside their biological children Magnus and Sera. Tavar was a career soldier in the Svartalf Military that had been given command of a tiny steadholdt between Erulea and the capital. He was in charge of maintaining farming production during the peacetime, a task he greatly resented. But Tavar was a soldier first - he didn't complain, he merely did his duty.

During his off hours (when he wasn't trying to pretend to be a farmer) Tavar trained his children in martial proficiency - how to don armor, how to wield most melee weapons, how to defend against attacks of all sorts. Sera, being from the Arcanist Caste, trained the children in magic while her husband attempted to plow fields with a greatsword.

Like his sister Sera, Vorast took to magic much more easily than to swordplay - though he refused to let himself become physically weak, and continued training with sword and spear even though he never grew fully proficient in either. While he would never match the physical strength of his brother Magnus, he learned to make up for it in agility and dexterity. The three of them made an excellent hunting party, bringing back big game from the Svartwöden every few days.

When Vorast reached the age of fifteen he was encouraged by his father to explore abroad. Tavar knew that Vorast aged (and learned) far faster than his adoptive siblings, and realized that this would drive a wedge between them if they stayed together too much longer. Vorast would keep in contact with his adoptive parents until their deaths two years later. He still maintains contact with his sister Sera, and talks to his brother Magnus intermittantly.

Vorast is now employed by the Rune village of Payon as a customs and immigration official.
