Emrys Faraday

Background

Emrys is the lead vocals and lute player of the Moonlight Minstrels, a traveling band of musicians and performers. They tend to book any city that will take them, and have seen a great deal of the world.

As part of his band, Emrys dresses in blues and subdued greens while performing, taking on the thematic role of Corellon. Outside of this however, he prefers autumn colors of reds and oranges.

Wears a Corellon holy symbol around his neck. It never leaves his person.

Emrys himself is a decently well known guy for only being 19. He tends to “know a guy” in almost every city he’s been.

His mentor and father figure is Cyrus, leader of a group of traveling performers, which Emrys originally belonged and trained with.

Emrys was trained in swordplay and slight of hand, and has a talent for divination. He knows a few handy rituals, which are inscribed on his fortune cards. While relaxed, he plays the lute. In battle, he bears a horn, eager to enter the fray. Unlike most adventurers, Emrys likes to take it easy when not on an immediate task. Therefore he often is dressed more casually, leaving his armor and shield in his pack. His sword however, is often cleverly hidden and not far behind.

Charismatic and eager for adventure, he likes a change of pace every now and then. What fortune for him a band of supposed heroes has been formed…where might his adventures take him now?
