Celane hails from a long-forgotten, secretive society of elves in the Moonshaes. She
demonstrated her incredible intellectual potential at a very early age, and excelled in
magical tutelage in her native land.
Although Celane herself speaks little of her childhood, Dennis often recounts such
tales as how she stunned her master by proving a theory regarding the source of elven
magical limits before she could even cast a single cantrip. Celane dreads such stories
more than anything, but such is life when one is married to a bard.
Speaking of Dennis, the initial meeting between Celane and her future husband was very
unromantic and confrontational. At the time, Dennis was caught up in a long running feud
between his adventuring band and an evil, malevolent adventuring company known as The
Black Legion. Their leader, Amrakal of the Thunder Peaks, had offered the leader of the
Riders () the chance to be his
apprentice. When Magnus refused, Amrakal became quite offended and informed the Riders to
expect much misery in the coming years.
True to his word, the Black Legion presented itself as an obstacle at many a turn. A
sort of "cold war" emerged, as Amrakal still wished to convince Magnus to
willingly join him. However, a little death and suffering for the Riders was considered
part of the game.
All of this brings us to Celane. For reasons still unknown, she was firmly in the
thrall of Amrakal and actively assisting his efforts to dominate the region. True to her
own poor luck, she had actually been charmed by the evil mage. When Dennis came too close
to one of the Black Legion's schemes, Celane was used to block his progress. She
seductively convinced Dennis to lower his guard (not a difficult feat at the time) and
rewarded his enthusiasm with a vicious Cone of Cold spell.
Clinging to life, Dennis found this whole experience to be surprisingly attractive. He
narrowly escaped her wrath, and hurried back to the Riders to boast of the wondrous woman
he had just encountered. In further conflict with the Black Legion, Amrakal came to have a
small measure of respect for Dennis. Against his nature, he generously removed the charm
spell and freed Celane to her own devices.
Without a firm grounding in society or a clear understanding of her past, Celane was
taken in by Dennis as first a guest and then a steadfast companion. She was slow to trust
the Riders, and often encouraged Dennis to leave the group for a safer lifestyle.
Nevertheless, she patiently remained in Elvenflow for over a decade. She would
occasionally offer the Riders sage advice regarding the outer planes (her primary field of
research), but contented herself primarily with raising their three children and her own
When Dennis finally reconciled with the Harpers, the organization offered him the
chance to rebuild and administer the lost Bardic College in Waterdeep. Celane was
ecstatic, and Dennis retired from the Riders. Although scattered members of the group will
visit from time to time, Celane has made her wishes very clear regarding Dennis and the
group: the less association, the better!
Unfortunately, Dennis has recently agreed to assist
