Kingdom of the Blue Skies
Rayvern of Steelhawk
Elven paladin. Always accompanied by his Raven.
Rayvern came from a large family of Beastspeakers. Over the years they did not notice a change in their middle-most son and who made a pact with a then-unnamed demon and used the blood of their family as the seal on the contract. During this time, Rayvern was away learning the skill of the sword. When he returned after training he found his brother on their fathers seat of authority as well as his family members, and their partners, raised as the undead. He and his mentor fought the horde until they were able to reach his demonically empowered brother who spent his last spell on the mentor. In a fit of anger Rayvern killed his brother by removing his chest from his body in a savage barrage of blows. Now he and his bird are looking to find a new home and rebuild the tradition of his family. Any item that resembles a Raven appeals to him but he is wary of magic items for which he has little knowledge.
