Eladrin Wild Elf
The product of two very different cultures colliding in a fateful meeting, Shanks is an amalgamation of many things. Spending his early childhood in Luxenburough with his Eladrin mother Larnael, Shanks found a love for art, alchemy, and quality time with his mom. This was not destined to last as one day in his early teens he came home to find his mother dead. His uncle takes him to his Wild Elf father Kalgar in the Forest Bastion. Kalgar was a War Cleric of The Hunter an elven god. With strict and dogmatic ingraining, Kalgar forcefully imparted his teachings onto Shanks. Shanks found a penchant for archery and began to focus all of his efforts on becoming the best to gain the love of his domineering father. Again, tragedy struck when his father and his unit know as The Wolfpack, left for a mission and never returned. What followed was an odyssey of self-discovery and trauma through which he fought against fiends and demons with a war band known as the Hell Riders, found and lost the love of his life Dona Takal, became a sniper for the assassin’s guild S8. Broken and disillusioned by the dynamics of his life, he was found and hired by the Journeyman who gave him an opportunity to right the wrongs of his past an gain control of his fate.
