Federin Illiwynd was born into a noble family of the Winter Court in the Feywild, the Tormulae. His family resided in the Col du Tormulae, an outer province north of the fall lands of the Autumn Court and far west of the seat of the Winter Court in Zoncolan. By birth, it was ever Federin’s destiny to serve the Winter Court in whatever capacity he could.
Those eladrin who showed special talent in the paths they chose to pursue were considered for special recognition in the ranks of the Aeristhyde, a prestigious designation the gave one expanded duties and responsibilities, as the Winter Court was again planning to extend its influence into the Prime Realm. Federin was chosen to join the Aeristhyde’s ranks after he had shown great battle prowess in the protection of his uncle, a diplomat for the Autumn Court.
As a praetorian of the Aeristhyde, Federin was allowed access to special information regarding the Aersithyde plans, about their role in the Winter Court, and their ambitions in the Prime Realm. He was reeducated in their history, much of which was common knowledge to those in the Winter Court, though some its strong emphasis on racial and ethnic superiority had been lost over the centuries. After additional training, Federin was finally assigned as a praetorian for Szerathin Elondorith, grand wizard and Winter Court (read Aeristhyde) ambassador to Roen in the Prime Realm.
Federin has accompanied Szerathin on many trips to Roen and knows a bit of his business there with the High Council of Merchants Guild, though his role is to guard the ambassador, a primarily ceremonial task since the grand wizard could defend himself better than Federin (or any of his other guards for that matter) from any potential threat.
News finally came to the Aeristhyde and rippled through the Winter Court that a band of fools had broken the spell of the Ihniko Palace and the standing army that stood outside its walls in the Feywild for centuries were finally able to break in. None were found, both crown and king removed, but it gave reason for the army to march into the Prime Realm in search of their eternal enemy, the Ihniko king. It all seemed to be a sign from the gods, as their own control over the Winter Court had become crystalline, their resources flush, their face more fully that of the Winter Court of old, when the Aeristhyde were an Empire and the whole of the Prime Realm knelt to their supremacy. It was an exciting time to be an Aeristhyde about to bring order and civilization to a barbaric world.
That is, until Federin found out that the army had marched on a farming village and committed a mass murder. He had been told that the Aeristhyde would bring civilization by any means necessary, and he knew that confronting the barbarians often meant confronting them with their own savage means, but he never thought these ideas would be used to justify the murder of innocents. And on top of it, the lie was spread that a plague was what killed those of Laranyss, a cowardly act in Federin’s eyes. He seemed the only Aeristhyde to think so.
From that moment, he felt mad. He knew he had to leave, as he could no longer serve such a polluted cause. On his most recent visit to Roen, the visit that was to announce the lie to the people of the Prime Realm, Federin heard that those who broke the spell barrier around the Ihniko palace might be in Roen. He thought of them differently now, as heroes. If only he could find them. Then, as the stars would have it, he was given information from the Roen guard of where they might be. He left word with Szerathin of his mission, that he would return with confirmation of their whereabouts or disprove the rumor. Upon arriving at the Purple Worm, he waited and watched, and then a sign… a red haired girl…
