A 6’5” Noldor (high) elf with pale skin, white hair, and grey eyes. He is slender, carries a long bow, and wears an interesting earring.
In the far southwest of Middle-Earth there is a community of high elves. Among them it is common for individuals to possess some inherent magical capabilities. However, it is rare among the elves to manipulate the essence with the power of one’s mind. Many of Veiman’s kindred feel that mental ‘talents’ such as his are dangerous and eventually cause instability of the mind. Confident that they are wrong, he developed his abilities despite occasional ‘remarks’ from others. Eventually, the council of elders called him to a private meeting. During the meeting, they explained that, because of perceived dangers concerning his line of personal development, he should seek to further his growth outside the community and return only when he can put to rest any doubt that he is a safe community member, or upon cessation of his development in the ways of mental power. Not willing to give up what he righteously feels is his natural ability, he chose to leave to accomplish a task that will prove his worth. Before leaving, he met a forlorn elf maiden just arrived from the east. She told Veiman that she came from a town called Isresk in land of men called Sirayn and that she had visions of that land in turmoil. Curious about her tale, he traveled to Isresk only to find a town recently savaged by an oppressive tyrant, the Tarb of Isra. The town has had some time to rebuild, but the local occupation garrison still openly threatened, harassed, and sometimes arrested local inhabitants with little or no provocation. Veiman decided to travel north, deeper into the Mezin Tarb, in search of an area with less immediate threats of violence and to move further away from the front lines to the south. Eventually, he arrived in Tyarrett, a city poised at the junction of two rivers. Settled into a room at a local inn, Veiman spent time learning more about this strange, new land. Once, while searching for some information on how to increase his own personal abilities, he was noticed by a local scribe who happened to be looking for similar information. He introduced himself as Shalazar and, after a brief conversation, he invited Veiman to visit his home. Veiman accepted, for Shalazar seemed to be an honest, good-natured man.
