History:  Adris has a long history, too long.  He was around at the beginning of the fourth age.  He knew well many of the powerful people that lived through the battle with the Dark One.  He was one of the first, to enlist in the new Black Tower – the Peace keeping force.  During the Whitecloak Aes Sedai war when many Asha’man died, he staged his own death and left the Black Tower.  That was when he was about 300 years old.  Since then he had been searching the world, traveling everywhere, meeting people and hearing their stories and tales of legends.  He started his own eyes and ears network but they never lasted long.  Either they all died off in their normal life spans or the world was mostly at peace.  He has his sanctuary where he keeps various specialty things; one of these is a large stone which enables him and a few others to travel long distances.  The adverse effect of this is that time travels much slower there – apparently the last dragon used these on occasion and also by the Forsaken, in particular one called Lanfear.

         

He is also the keeper of an Arch, he traveled though it once just prior to staging his death.  And he was told some very interesting things and got a few significant questions answered.  However, the flip side of this was that he had to keep the Arch safe and it was not to be used until the Dragon was back.  The least significant of what he was told, was that he would help the next Dragon, he and his coterie.  That is Adris, Tenu and three others (tba).

         

The other information he has never shared.  So over the last 800 years only 400, or thereabouts have passed for him, putting him at almost 700 years old.

         

About 13 years ago, he was led to a place where an Asha’man Darkfriend was doing horrific experiments on people, and in particular five very gifted children.  He rescued these children, and took them in; he believes they are his coterie.

         

Weapons (swords, knives, etc.): Short length sword for the extra speed it gives.

  

Organization/affiliation/status/light or darkfriend:  Independent.

 

Skills (hunting/tracking, blademaster, etc.):  Blademaster.

  

Warders/companions/pets:  The 5 children (aged about 28) of his Coterie (Garan, Tenu and 3 others)

 

Would you be willing to kill this character off should the storyline dictate it?  No.
