Dae’Onel’s a bastard Princeling (so, has a title, but no lands, no money, no usable family connections). His mother was a Royal Princess, who had him and his twin sister out of wedlock with another Royal Prince (a very distant cousin). She was a Priestess for the Raven Queen

She was also notable for having several jilted lovers, and being a very devoted priest for the Raven Queen.

His father, I don’t have very much information other than he was known for his temper.

His mother died in childbirth, which was occurred in a prison cell.

Despite the royal linage, his family only had a comfortable (middle class) amount of wealth, so he has no servants.

The Raven Queen is wound around and around in Dae’Onel’s life it seems.

When Dae-Onel was a child of 5 he was chased into an alley by some thugs/bullies. He fell, there was a bright flash of light and the thugs all ran away. His protector was a spirit of an adventurer (a warrior or paladin) of some local renown. From that point on Dae-Onel had an ‘invisible friend’ that he could speak to, get answers from, but no one could see.

(the boy is odd, always talks in 3rd person, or in the plural)

He had a religious experience when he was 8, with the Raven Queen speaking to him.

At 12 he was apprenticed as a Paladin’s squire (a year younger than typical apprenticeships)

At 16 he had another religious experience, where the Raven Queen requested that he accomplish a dangerous task

Some quirks.

Always speaks in the plural of himself Phobia of being buried alive (maybe why he’s not a priest—doesn’t have to spend time underground) Obsessive heraldry hobbyist (as in spending about a 1/3 of his earnings on books, scrolls, paints, parchement) Devoted lute player
