Shea Silvermoon is a dashing youthful Elf with Blond hair, Hazel
Green eyes and a thin, muscular toned body. In his 20 years of adventure,
he has gained a aura of roguishness and a swashbucklers love
of life. He is seen in dashing cape, and stylish attire. His Moonblade
is ever at his belt with gem settings on the handle and scabbard.
But during adventures he is in a Cloak, with Tunic and Leggings
and his prized Mithral Elven Chain Mail. His bow Kethaesah and a
Quiver of Ehlonna with Sheaf Mithral Arrows +1 and Silver Flight
Arrows +2 is on his back. The Quiver continually creates more of
the special arrows and a Harper symbol is sewn on the quiver, it
was a gift from them.
He is an outgoing, foppish rogue. A masterful flirt he is very
charming. He loves company, and he always has guests at his houses
and throws grand balls and parties. His diplomatic manners, and
quick wit are his most favoured "party tricks."
He does have one major flaw, a neurotic desire for information
and knowledge. His intellect is staggering, and if there is knowledge
worth knowing he has it. Although pleasant company, he is a deadly
enemy and to be his enemy is to be dead either from him, or his
network of contacts.
Shea was born on the island of Evermeet. His House was of Eroth,
a minor house with only 2 moonblades. He was raised by his loving
parents, Lord Langlow and Lady Katherine, minor nobles in a minor
house. But they had dreams for their son. When he was 50 he enrolled
at the Academy of Arms and Magic at Evereska. There was 50 years
of training for the young elf, of swordplay, archery, and magic.
He was truly gifted, graduating at the top of his class. His parents
overjoyed gave him Kethaesah, his mothers bow.So with his
bow at his side, he went out in the world. He travelled Faerun as
a sell sword and freelance mage, until he found the Knights of Silverymoon.
A rag-tag bunch, they need another sword to clean out a dungeon
west of the city. They consisted of a Half-Elf Ranger Tanae Daerua,
a Human Mage "Omega Star", two Dwarf Brothers Akgam and
Kazad, a Fighter and Cleric, and Female Elven minstrel by the name
of Naiwyn Sylyn. Nai captured his heart, body, and mind. She resisted
his advances like a brick wall. Shea was so in love that he spend
every spare copper on her. Naiwyn got the best rooms, wine, armor,
weapons, clothing, all in vain.
The team became celebrities in Silverymoon and abroad. But Shea
got called back to Evermeet for a very important mission. Because
of his fame he was drafted by the Queen of Elves. He had to go to
the Drow Underdark and negotiate a prisoner release. His mother
and father were being held in Menzoberranzan for ransom. A captured
Drow priestess would be given back to the Drow for his parents.
The prisoner exchange didnt go well and his father died defending
his mother from the raiding parties sent to double-cross them. His
fathers Moonblade and armor were passed down from father to
When he got back to the surface, he heard terrible news. The orcs
had attacked Silverymoon and taken Naiwyn prisoner, among others.
So lovestruck, Shea marched off to face the orcs. Using his skills
as a diplomat he got the orcs to release her to him for 10 kegs
of Bloodwine. Naiwyn then "warmed" up to him and after
a courtship of 6 months they were married by High Lady Alustriel
on the Moonbridge. And thus the House of Silvermoon began.The couple
settled down, but Sheas adventures were not over. A highly
skilled Diplomat he was called upon many times by Queen Amlaruil
for dealings with Dwarves, Humans, Dragons, Drow, and others. His
contacts in various governments was developing into a spy network
during this time. It began to recruit members and slowly grew. During
his diplomatic mission to Cormyr his was able to acquire about 12
kenku eggs. Bringing them back to Silverymoon, he raised them with
the help of his Half-Elf Ranger friend, Tanae Daerua. This dozen
kenku, named Talon, Razor, Hawk, Night, Azure, Feather, Beak, Peregrine,
Star, Beam, Wing, Branch, and Leaf, formed the basis of his kenku
spies. They serve Shea and Tanae faithfully, mostly because of their
loving care. Tanae is currently in direct command of the Kenku spies,
and she reports to Shea of their progress. Tanaes "payment"
was the ability to use the Kenku in his judgement, as long as spy
reports still come in. (1/3 of the Kenku are patrolling the woods
outside of Silverymoon, Tanaes charge of land.) After a trade
bargain went very well for Evermeet with Waterdeep, he got the Moonhorse
Renean, and he profited from the deal himself greatly, using the
money to build his houses in Waterdeep and Evereska. After this
major success the Harpers started their dealings with him. His houses
are major strong points for Harper agents. For this he got a Quiver
of Ehlonna, and his own Harper Pin.
When he got the Drow to abandon Shadowdale completely, he bought
a farm just outside of the village. And over time his spy network
spread all over Faerun, making him one of the most informed people

raising 7 baby elves. These offspring are named Raerad (Male), Amaelain
(Female), Caelath (Male), Lathonna (Female), Kansharan (Male) Nairuilera
(Female) Lyianeth (Male)
