If actively searching, an elf's chances improve to a two-in-six chance (1 or 2 on 1d6) to find secret doors, and a three-in-six (1, 2, or 3 on 1d6) to notice a concealed door.
Infravision - Infravision with a range of 60'.

Character History:

Has the title of Herald of Dagger Falls

Jestarius was found on a rainy day during the year 1344 (year of Moonfall) by an elven female minstrel called Eithne Ni Braomin – also known as Eithne of Stars – covered only by a dirty woolen blanket in the suburbs of Evereska, the great city of the North. The little half – elf was abandoned by his mother during the move from the eastern countries to the island of Evermeet. Because of his being an half – elf, Jestarius would not ever be admitted to Evermeet and he would have been the living proof of an adultery between his mother and a human soldier. The minstrel became the child stepmother and named him after her dead former lover Jestarius; Jestarius’ human traits became soon evident due to lack of sharpened ears. He was extremely small and even in the following years he grew very little, like all the full – blooded elves. So Eithne discovered the real and double nature of Jestarius and revealed him his mysterious past; with the help of his mother Jestarius started to know the secrets of singing, dancing, playing the long – horn and entertaining people following his stepmother’s career. When he was 22 he decided to leave Evereska and travel all around Faerun to get new experiences and become one of the most famous bard in the world. Before his first show Jestarius added the family – name of Calantrian to himself, remembering the label placed on the blanket in which he was found (Calanter) and the nickname of “the Musician” as a distinctive sign among other bards. He arrived in Shadowdale by the end of 1367 DR and remained there in search of traces of the Harpers congregation. On 1368, together with Haika of Hillsfar (human female warrior), Jehsuald of Auril (male human cleric) and Wapity Elventree (male elf wizard), he started the search for Randal Morn (lost rightful ruler of Daggerdale) and the Sword of the Dales. Soon after Jehsuald abandoned the party, while Wapity died at the Serpent’s bridge in an ambush. After two terrible months Randal was freed from Zhentarim and Dagger Falls occupied by the Freedom Riders. The party at that moment comprised also the gnome Ichabod Crane (warrior), the cleric of Tempus Vacuub Caquix, the elf warrior Axel Slideriver and the elf maiden thief Eithne Heathertree. After the victory Jestarius fell in love with Eithne, soon before discovering she was his lost half – sister, being generated by the same elf mother. Eithne ran away, while Jestarius was called by Storm Silverhand in Shadowdale to become an Harper. After three months Eithne and Jestarius met again in Shadowdale. On Kythorn of the same year the party started in search of stolen Axel’s Sword. On their journey they met first the halfling ranger Eldon Underbough; then the Fellowship of the Dales was born, with Jestarius as a speaker. The same Axel died in Tilverton and Vacuub left the party soon after. The elf mage Calamir and the elf warrior Sheryl became members of the fellowship, replacing the casualties. They reached the fabulous city of Tirnavaras, golden home of the avariel (winged) elves. In a surprise attack by the Cult of the Dragon forces Jestarius died, but was resurrected soon after and bound by Milil himself to guide Tirnavaras reconstruction. Eithne decided to stay with him. There the half – elf received the magic flying carpet (see description above) he commands with music. The rest of the Fellowship succeeded in recovering the sword (that contained a powerful artifact called Agash’Eye) and the Ring of Winter, while Jestarius started to feel uneasy of his sojourn. Until 1371 he stayed in Tirnavaras, waiting for Milil to fulfill his vote. Then the two returned to Dagger Falls to find the Fellowship dissolved. On 1372 Jestarius captured the former Zhentarim captain Ordrik Scarwood, but left him free following a quarrel with Eithne. Jestarius had to leave the Dales and travelled a lot until 1373, when he found hospitality in Luiren, the country of halfling, now ruled by Eldon. In 1374 Jestarius turned back home for the third time and was contacted by his past human lover Demi Huldan (former agent of Cormyr government) to stop two dangerous villains, a thief named Tarkan Ravenheart and Jehsuald of Auril (former member of Jestarius’ first party), whose plan was to travel to the past and change the present. They left Dagger Falls together with Eithne, Calamir, Eldon (last two members of the Fellowship), Ichabod, Vacuub and Haika (become ruler of Dagger Falls). The party reached Frozenflame, the tower created by a powerful mage called the Master of Time, where they had to fight with a lesser demon evoked by Tarkan. The tower collapsed and the party had to follow Tarkan and Jehsuald through the time portal the two created. They came back to 6 years before, discovering that Tarkan’s truly purpose was to find the Ring of Winter and the Agash’ Eye and became ruler of all Faerun. Jehsuald discovered his plan and was captured by the thief revealing himself as a terrifying demon, shapechanged into a human. Jestarius, Vacuub and Haika were separated from the rest of the party and had to come back to their time with the aid of the Master of Time himself, that negotiated the spell with Jestarius’ soul. The bard accepted and the Master of Time became one with him. Demi, meanwhile, decided to leave the group, trying to prevent Cormyr from destruction in 1371. The remaining members were thrown by Tarkan back to the future (1374 again), seeing what happened to their world after a six years tyrannical domination. The halves of the party joined in Shadowdale, sealing a pact with Jehsuald to kill Tarkan, ending his dominion. In the final battle Jestarius was able to banish the demon who had Tarkan appearance with Master of Time’s aid, but had to give the Ring of the Winter to Jehsuald as a prize for changing again the past and restore the true timeline. Elminster was about to cancel Jestarius’ resurrection but Storm Silverhand arrival, with Milil consensus, avoided the mage’s intention. Currently Jestarius is traveling with Eithne to the Western countries of Faerun in search of his origins and maybe of a way to free himself from the damnation of bearing the essence of the Master of Time in himself, sometimes trying to take over control of Jestarius’ body.
