"We lost our world because we were divided. We will not lose Eternia to the same folly." -Riardon
Affiliation: Kingdom of Eternia
Born in Allemantheia in the year 49.090 AC, the Eladrin Riardon was born without a house. For hundreds of years, he fought in defense of the Kingdom of Eternia, becoming renowned throughout the kingdoms as an invincible swordmage. Riardon once saved the King of the Elves and his entire family from certain death, and he was rewarded with his own house, and his own lands. In that same encounter, however, he was scarred by the Drow assassin, and he joined the Azure Guard, convinced of the threat of the dark elves. In the year 49,740 AC, he invited the fierce Valenae to serve his house, and she accepted his gracious offer.
Riardon warned Valenae that Eternia intended war against the Kingdom of Avathar, and that it would be a mistake. The truth threat would come from the Underdark, and the dark elves who dwelt there. Riardon trained Valenae as she took her vows to become a warpriest of Corellon, studying the holy ways to fight Lolth's darkness. In the year 49.790 AC, Riardon led Valenae and his house in a quest to the Underdark, seeking to cripple the dark elves and prevent them from threatening Eternia ever again.
