Description and History
Renthar's history is full of resentment and hatred for his heritage.
He is a rare breed, part human, part dark elf. His mother was an
adventurer from Athkatla in Amn. On one of her journeys she was
imprisoned by drow and forced into slavery. Details are scarce about
the circumstances of her escape, but it's known that Renthar's father,
a guard, freed her and they fled together. They fell in love, were
married, and had a child, who they named Renthar.
Soon after his birth, a party of drow tracked them down, and his
mother was slain. His father gathered a band, including Hasan Guiraselle,
a fallen paladin seeking to redeem himself, and the mysterious Kysrn,
a mage whose longing for vengeance against the dark elves, for whatever
his reason, made him join this quest. Renthar was given over to
the Ashenclouds, a poor but hard-working family in Waterdeep. As
he grew older, his resentment of those who had shunned his parents
for their race or, in his mother's case, her association with one,
grew. He turned to stealing when his adopted parents passed on,
because no business would have such a supposedly cruel and malicious
kind of person as him in it's employ. He provides for himself and,
although he usually has an every-man-for-himself outlook, the city
lower class citizens.
