Appearance: Taerlyn is a handsome, well built elf whose athletic and wiry muscled physique makes him the picture of the accomplished swordelf. He has the typical aquiline features of all elves. His deep black hair is well kept and often tied back for practical purposes. His light grey eyes tend to stare out about him watchfully and quiet. He moves with a purpose and fluidity; competence without arrogance.

Politeness, Honesty (though he never expects it)
Dislikes:Liars, Wastefulness, Rudeness, Cowards
History: Taerlyn never knew his real parents but was “adopted” at an early age by the head of House Thuranni as a nephew. Baron Elar maintains that Taerlyn is his nephew, though none living remember the brother that might have spawned him. None question the leader of the house on the matter, even if they dared, as Taerlyn is quite obviously suited to his role in the house. He was raised from a young age as an achiever, toward the purpose of assassination and any other matter House Thuranni might be called upon to accomplish. Taerlyn took to his tasks as they were his life’s ambition.
Though Taerlyn has a taste for the good life, he never allows this to effect his work in any negative way.
None of the assassinations and work that Taerlyn has thus far been involved with can be pinpointed to him by anyone outside House Thuranni. The swordelf has met any challengers on the street, eager to test this supposed assassin, with polite but disastrous ends/defeats. Few are left to question that he is probably “at least marginally competent, maybe, probably, he’s not behind me is he?”
Pic of how I envision Tearlyn in his leisure time. Not posted as it’s someone else’s work and I’m not about to “steal” it or use without permission.
