Brief History: The son of Adair Trevelyan and Brighid Aodhagan, Rhys was born and raised in the village of Lindornea in the south-west of the Tauremorna. Adventurous by nature, he began to venture off-world almost as soon as he was old enough to do so. On one of the first of these adventures he found his way to the Green Heart Inn on Berelath, quickly making friends with the Mars-Corinth family, Helen and James, and their young daughters, Rachel and Anaya. However he lost touch with them and, with the exception of a meeting with a now adult Rachel at the Dragon Inn, did not meet the family again until several years later at the Silver Dryad. It was there that his relationship with the now-widowed Helen can be said to have truly begun, a relationship for him that quickly deepened into something he was prepared to build his life around. For this reason, it became more common to find Rhys on Haven than his homeworld of Elemmiire. But Helen's life was far from straightforward; returned to life by Haven's Light Goddess, Semel, she was bound to be the planet's protector and guardian. The demands on her time were great and, whilst Rhys respected her commitment, he also felt that they were drifting apart. Eventually, he brought their relationship to an end. He still cares deeply for Helen, but he feels that they were not meant to be together.

Other Information:

  • Rhys's soul is silver-green in colour and in its ground state will often appear to be a mist in form. At the heart of this burns a flame that is the core of the individual's soul.
  • Rhys' magic looks like a silvery-green mist, the same shade as his soul.
  • The spoken language of the Tauremornan Elves is a bastardised version of the purer Elven spoken by the Elves of the Aarataure, heavily influenced by the Dark Elven language. The musical elven tongue, similar to Terran Irish, is now 'marred' by the harsh clicks and sibilant whispers of the dark elven language.
