Character History:

Gryffen Aravorn is the son of an old drow king. His father, Norrin Aravorn, was a gallant and prosperous drow king of a secret underground kingdom called Vile. The kingdom was believed to have been located just north of Malenest. While out on an expedition, Norrin fell in love with an elven maiden, who bore his child, Gryffen. Ashamed what his drow peers would think, Norrin banished Gryffen and his mother from the kingdom. Gryffen's mother raised him and taught him morals and life skills that she saw he would need in the future. Meanwhile, Gryffen's father began to get greedy and enslaved orcs to started building a bigger kingdom in Vile. The orcs seemed to be doing well and were seemingly obedient, but were really planning a slave revolt. Eventually the orcs killed all the drow and soon planned an assault on Malenest. The day of the raid, Gryffen was out visiting distant relatives at the Elven Homestead. When he arrived home he found his city in ruins and most of the elves dead, including his mother. Gryffen decided to travel Lloth Lorien to start his training in divine magic and the way of the woods. Someday he plans to return to the Vile and kill the orcs. Someday he will reclaim the once proud Aravorn kingdom and reclaim the underground kingdom.

  • Gryffen was sponsored into the Chosen by Kaldred.
  • Gryffen was the Chosen killed by Eamon that earned the pk'er Anathema status.
  • Gryffen was killed while linkdead by Zahar, and the corpse returned. * Please see Player Provided Information below.
  • Cordir keeps a bag of Gryffen hide in her 'keepsakes' bag.

Player Provided Information:

Gryffen was rejected from the Chosen of Fate exactly eight days after joining. While we will never know exactly what happened in the situation with Zahar, Bliss and I believed that there were two possible situations: Either, A) his death was part of a ruse designed to harm the alliance between the Chosen and the Coven, or B) He lied to Zahar to get his corpse back. Neither were acceptable, and he was rejected. ### [Gryffen tells Zahar (in common), 'i swear, everything you say i will back you, i am not sure if i like fate].

Personal Timeline:

07/16/2002: Gryffen joins the Chosen of Fate.
07/19/2002: [ 7] Gryffen: Eamon / Fri Jul 19 18:25:37 2002 / To followers of: Cordir / Eamon killed me and he killed me fast. this guy is a major newbie killer and he is tanked out. I recommend that if anyone sees him they kill him so he wont do this to anyone else. Well, I am sorry lady for losing your equipment. If anyone finds or has any spare 2dmg or svs, etc... can you please save for me. ~ Gryffen
07/24/2002: [ 16] Gryffen: Zahar / Wed Jul 24 07:41:47 2002 / To followers of: Cordir / Zahar (a Coven) killed me LD after a major power outage went through my town. He gave the corpse back and stated that this was the only warning Fate would receive. Next time he will simply kill and keep corpse. He has stated that he wants to talk to Cordir one on one about all this (which the way he said it doesn't sound good). So all Fate, beware. ~ Gryffen. Gryffen is rejected from Fate.
