Character Description and History

A good sized Halfling youth, Eliphas grew up watching his father, who was a mercanary in service to the town of Chethel in the kingdom of Luiren. His father was a devout follower of Arvoreen and the practice carried over to his son.

One day, as a youth, Eliphas was watching a battle between his father and a travelling vagabond from Dambrath. The battle was going in his father's favor until the vagabond began fighting dirty and tossed dirt in his father's eyes. The next thing that Elif realized, his father was in the dirt, bleeding from a stomach wound and the vagabond was running away. Elif ran to his father and kneeling beside him asked what he could do to help. His father said to him, "My son, I am dying. You must learn the ways of Arvoreen and continue in my place protecting the weak and vanquishing evil where it resides. Good-bye my son."

From that moment on, Eliphas devoted his life to Arvoreen and travelled with a band of adventures called the Golden Fists.

On one of his adventures, the daughter of an archmage named Carlinus, was kidnapped and held for ransom. Carlinus, suspecting a double-cross, asked the Golden Way to help him. On this adventure, Eliphas gave his life to absorb an "Acid Arrow" initially intended for Carlinus' daughter.

When the rest of the party defeated the kidnappers, they took his body to the local temple and paid to have him "Resurrected". Carlinus' in gratitude for Eliphas' sacrife, created the Runesword, Dragos for him.

Somehow, when he was resurrected 3 streaks of white shot through his once brown hair. (he made his Resurrection Survival by 2%).

Now Eliphas' has retired and lives in the little town of Hap, betwixt the Dales and Sembia. He is the proprietor of an inn and tavern called "The Halfling's Pub".
