Port Nyanzaru is a city of walls within walls. Each is an impressive structure of fitted stones and decorated with colorful paintings of geometric designs, animals, and mythic heroes. The city is defined by four steep hills, connected by wide stone bridges that arch above the streets. Outside the city walls are three slums, where about half of the cities population live.

Enanthil comes from the Vesve forest. He was raised in a typical Moon Elf community, and showed an appreciation for nature from a young age. He joined a religious order honoring Ehlenestra, or Ehlonna as the humans call her.
Shortly after his naming ceremony, the order's elders asked him to go investigate news of an unnatural curse in Chult. Armed with his wits, his family's heirloom mythral full plate, and what he could carry, he left his ancestral home for Chult

Possibly a Idiot.
Kargadan "The Rhino"


Abandoned to a Lathanderite orphanage shortly after he was born, Kargadan, or Rhino as he is more commonly known, has been looking for a place to truly call his own all his life. However, being raised in a Temple of the Morninglord was not without it's merits. While the church is often called gaudy or opulent, it's appreciation of fine arts extends into museum curation, a job which Rhino aspired to attain. By learning about other peoples, he hoped to find his people. Initially trained as a guard due to his imposing frame, his love for learning about cultures soon impressed upon his seniors, allowing him more leeway in assignments. When he heard about a campaign in Chult, he leapt at the opportunity. Not only to learn about other cultures first hand, but also to learn about the place where his namesake animal comes from, and perhaps a little about himself.


I plan on living forever. Or die trying.

Amitiel looks human for the most part and only those knowledgeable in such things can discern his true nature. He has black hair, a hooked nose, and a clear tan with dark intense eyes. For most of the existence, he remembers he lived in Oghma halls, maintaining the library, keeping records of new tomes, and doing things most of the librarians anywhere would find familiar. Only library patrons would be strange, angels, archons, primordials, spirits, even occasional fiend.

Everything in his world turned upside-down when he was chosen to find out more about the threat patron of bards detected in the future. Amitiel was sent down as a simple monk, a librarian in the Great Library of Waterdeep where he was to search for clues of Death Apocalypse and lead mortals toward recovering artifacts for Good and discouraging those who searched for dark lore.

In the last half-century of his life, he was a fixture in the library, searching, questing, trying to prevent the thing Oghma saw. And he failed. Not only that, he felt the grace of Oghma retreat as people turned their faces from gods and simply died where they stood. He got sick too - a new experience for an angel - and was fading quickly when his superior contacted him and offered to bring him home.

Amitiel turned the offer down and asked to be cast down from the heavens into the mortal body. He remained at the library even as the mortal world kept shrinking. He questioned survivors, new arrivals, incoming mages, and other casters. And he couldn't find anything that could reverse the events. Finally, in desperation, he removed himself from his exile and tried to do something real, something that could be felt.

And for his troubles, he almost got killed as he tried to negotiate the exit with thieves guild appealing to their better natures. Even if he is mortal now, he still doesn't understand them and lying comes hard to him. He just missed the group of adventurers hired to go out. Using his contacts he went over the sea in a blink of an eye waiting for the group.
