The Ashes of the Nerathi
Eilian the Old
One of Winterhaven’s resident historians, Eilian is an old farmer who has since moved into the village. He is something of a local celebrity, and the townsfolk look after him by providing all of his needs. Eilian is extremely knowledgable about local folklore and is an able storyteller; most nights he can be found at Wrafton’s Inn telling tales of his younger days to neighborhood children, who listen in rapt attention to his tales of ogres and dragons.
Eilian is a bitter rival of Valthrun, who also considers himself Winterhaven’s preeminent historian. Both men are madly infatuated with Salvana, and cannot stand each other. They constantly jockey for position with Lord Padraig, hoping to be the one the man comes to with his questions about the area’s history.
