Brief History: Elvyn was the second son of Lord and Lady Travion and as there was no land for him, he was sent to the monistary while his brother, Wilbert became the next Lord Travion.
Elwyn’s story starts out in England when his curiosity got the best of him and he saw something that he probably shouldn’t have and ended up sacked up and tossed onto a boat. He lost count of days and weeks until one day he woke up to sunlight streaming in a hole that had been ripped into the sack he was tied up in. Freeing himself, he wandered around Gala Nodel. Completely lost, he thought that he had ended up at the Americas when copper skinned and barely clothed people began melting out of the forest, however he soon discovered that these natives were far from being human.
Elvyn spent the next few years trying to convert the Taurësúlë to his religion until he realized that he was no longer on Terra when what he witnessed his first act of ‘magic’. Instead of condemning he became curious and began learning what he could of it, eventually becoming the best friend of Barnaby Moonrune who showed him the ins and outs and taught him about Arlsyn.
When Elvyn began to die of old age, it was agreed to by the Patron Deities of the Taurësúlë that he was much too important to let slip away. As he began to pass the Veil Selene and her brother Silvanus met him and offered him a second chance at life, with the understanding that he could choose to die anytime that he wanted. Having decided that there was still too much for him to learn, he accepted and was brought back to life, his body reverting to a man in his thirties.
Elvyn lives in a small cottage deeper in the forest, protected by the Taurësúlë and helps teach those that come through. He continues to follow his vow of poverty and everything is provided for him by the Taurësúlë. He has diverted slightly from his Franciscan ways, having taken a lover from time to time.
