Background story 

Unaligned half-elf bard named Lordaelyn(lor-DAL-in) Penrose aka Lordaelyn, aka Dally.

Born and raised in a human metropolis to human mother, Clemantine Penrose and Elven father, Daeven. Both parents were middle-class tradespeople. I have one sister, five years younger, named Ladella (luh-DEL-uh) aka Del.

Until I was 13(Del was 8) a great and powerful, beloved ruler was in power in our region. Our parents died during the riots following her fall/the rise of her nefarious replacement, who is still in power today. Our mom died saving us.

With no nearby family, I ended up scrounging on the streets to support Del and myself. I sang and played on the streets of a popular market. I made quite a take, enough to keep us fed and housed for 2 years. (I was 15/Del was 10) This is when I discovered my bard power. I felt very different and brought it up with other entertaining beggars. An older performer told me I might have Bard powers, so I started researching in my free time.

I was discovered and taken in by the Deva Aristocrat, Melosius, and his longtime, live-in girlfriend, Ruvog, a Giant Scholar. Melosius took us in, sent my sister to boarding school and became a patron of my arts. He gave me a lot of money to write songs/stories and perform at parties.

Because of my aristocratic patron, I've met a lot of aristocrats and nobles, as well as clergy, royalty and minor deities, one of whom I had a brief fling with (Milil). I am a giant flirt, have had many romantic, but inconsequential relationships, nothing long lasting. mostly musicians, nobles and Milil.



Personality Quirks

I have a soft spot in my heart for musicians, sad poets, emo/broody guys, merfolk and farmboys.

I am thrifty, always looking for a deal and always willing to perform for drinks, room and board, tips.

I am kind of a know it all - striving to learn everything, collects books.

I get mildly impulsive after battle. (sleeping with dudes, eating the livers of slain monsters, etc)

Secret desire to find a hunky artist who will illustrate my stories. We will be married, or just live like hippies, open a bookstore with a secret back room for black market spells and risque materials.



Reason for Adventure

I have chosen to start adventuring now because my mother's journal expressed regret about not travelling or not doing more during the fall of our beloved ruler.

I've also heard rumors of a series of old journals, full of forgotten tales and adventures of my ancestors. They may or may not be acquainted with Milil.



Short Term Goals

I would like to acquire a "never ending" enchantment for my flask

I need to learn to tame animals - I want a giant peacock to use as a mount.
