The Seaman Saga
Born in The Year of the Fifth Circle, 1476 DR, Elios Winterhaven is the fourth son of Earak Winterhaven, Fifth Baron of Winterhaven. Elios’s youth was one of noble privilege. Reared within the family fief and manor-hold, the fortified town of Winterhaven (from which the family derives its name), he wanted for naught and was sheltered from all toil and suffering. As a fourth son, Elios was sent away at an early age to the distant metropolis of Suzail, capital of the kingdom of Cormyr. There he resided with and squired to his Great-Uncle Elander, a Swordmaster of Tempus, and served as a temple acolyte, to one day join the priesthood in devotion to the god. With the re-manifestation of the slain god Helm in 1490 DR, Elios instead found common purpose and conviction as a follower of the god of guardianship and protection. Now sixteen years old, Elios returns to Winterhaven in the Year of Three Ships Sailing, 1492 DR, anointed as a paladin of Helm and sworn member of the newly re-forged Order of the Vigilant Eyes of the Deity.
