Bio:

This is a slender rod that is approximately 3 feet long. It is made of wood, steel and silver with delicate engravings of flowers and trees along its length. the top is a simple rounded oval resembling a gem but made of purest silver. Despite its small size, its an effective weapon when wielded.

The rod is named “Ilfariel” which means “Beloved of Ilfaren”. Ilfaren is one of the noble houses in Celene. This rod belonged to the Othlien, youngest son of House Ilfaren. He died while performing a task for the Royal Family. He was an adventurer as well. His classes were Fighter/MagicUser. however he refused to use bladed weapons out of respect for his mother who was a priest
of Correlon.

Othlien rarely had the patience for spell research so spent a lot of time thinking of ways to use existing spells to accomplish his tasks.
